The Harder They Fall

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Dreamland Express Album. It was also released as a live version on The Wildlife Concert Album . Aspen, Colorado on a Saturday night Jesse wishes she was at home Upset because her baby just ain't treatin' her right So afraid of being alone Said she heard some stories he's been runnin' around Said somehow she knows it's all true She says a breaking heart can make a terrible sound She said she don't know what to do Think about a bad time, can't get much worse Think about a hard time, take it to the wall This won't be the last time, sure ain't the first The bigger they are, the harder they fall You might say she's caught between a rock and a hard place You might say she just can't win Some just can't recover from a slap in the face Some just get right up and start all over again Think about a bad time, can't get much worse Think about a hard time, take it to the wall This won't be the last time, sure ain't the first The bigger they are, the harder they fall Think about a bad time, can't get much worse Think about a hard time, take it to the wall This won't be the last time, sure ain't the first The bigger they are, the harder they fall Aspen, Colorado on a Saturday night Jesse wishes she was at home She's mad because her baby just ain't treatin' her right So afraid of being alone So afraid of being alone Nobody wants to be all alone She don't want to be all alone So afraid of being alone We don't want to be all alone Words and music by John Denver

She Hasn't Got Time For You

KIM WILDE "Another Step"
I heard you're out on your own Guess it's strange now you're living without love You'd think all those years Would mean something But it's over she's had enough Don't you know it's always hard at the start . . . To change When you look round and someone's broken Your heart Afraid to fall in love She hasn't got time for you But don't be afraid to fall in love I think you knew from the start She would break up your heart She hasn't got time for you But honey don't be afraid to fall Just take a look in my eyes Come and give it a try So now she's out on her own Talking cheap and laughing about your love The whispers you hear should tell you something Cos it's over and she's playing rough Could have told you such a long time ago You wouldn't listen cos you don't want to know That she was bad from the start And now she's breaking your heart

Lives

MODEST MOUSE "The Moon and Antarctica"
Everyone's afraid of their own life. If you could be anything you want I bet you'd be disappointed. am I right? No one really knows the ones they love. If you knew everything they thought I bet you'd wish that they'd just shut up. Well you were the dull sound of sharp math when you were alive. Not ones gonna play the harp when you die. And if I had a nickel for every damn dime I might have half the time. do you mind? Everyone's afraid of their own lives. If you could be anything you want I bet you'd be disappointed. am I right? It's hard to remember we're alive for the first time. It's hard to remember we're alive for the last time. It's hard to remember to live before you die. It's hard to remember that our lives are such a short time. It's hard to remember what it takes such a long time. It's hard to remember It's hard to remember. My mom's god is a woman and my mom she is a witch. I like this. My hell comes from inside comes from inside myself. Why fight this. Everyone's afraid of their own life. If you could be anything you want I bet you'd be disappointed. am I right?

Another Day

STING "Bring On The Night"
Every day that goes by A new hungry baby starts to cry Born astride a painful grave Drowned in hunger's tidal wave Pick a child that you can save It'd be the only one If Africa escapes starvation Not only food but education The desert grows with every minute Trapping everybody in it All the children look the same They wonder why they came But it's hard to tell the poison from the cure It's harder still to know the reason why, why, why The only thing I really know for sure Is that another day, another day's gone by Every day that goes by A brand new missile points towards the sky We're survivors of a game of chance Beneath an arms race avalanche If you survive this winter's cold You'd be the only one If we escape annihilation Not only hope but education The world is ruled by Bellophiles Adding to their weapon piles Imagine what your taxes buy We hardly ever try But it's hard to tell the poison from the cure It's harder still to know the reason why, why, why The only thing I really know for sure Is that another day, another day's gone by, bye,bye That this too solid flesh Would melt and resolve into a dew Suffocating lassitude Drowning in my platitude Trapped by insecurities I'm not the only one If I survive this dislocation Have to use my education Chief of inactivity Wasted creativity Distances our revolution Silence is consent But it's hard to tell the poison from the cure It's harder still to know the reason why, why, why The only thing I really know for sure Is that another day, another day's gone by

Stay Out Of Jail

MOTORHEAD "We Are Motorhead"
Still watching the sky We ain't sure of you yet New in town, been around Heartbreaker for sure Maybe running from the law Just passing the time Just moving down the line Not time to fall, no time to fail No time for anything at all Stay out of jail... Still facing the door Just watching the street City born, ripped and torn Still turning tricks Enough to make you sick Just passing the buck You might be real bad luck Not time to fall, no time to fail No time for anything at all Stay out of jail... Can't see you right now We ain't got the time Bad news, stand accused A fool in drag, got your nose in a bag Whacked out of your head Y'all remember what I said No time to fix No time to bail No time for one last call Stay out of jail...

Heavens Last Attempt

Cole Jude
Rain down mercy For the lost and lonely child For the liars and the losers The reckless and the wild There's no more use in pretending I know I never fooled you The deepest darkness I've ever known Comes from living like I do But I swear I'm gonna knock on that gate Even if it's all in vain I'll stand outside with my mouth wide open And drink the pouring rain I know there's some good left in this world I've seen it shine in your eyes Rain down salvation And keep my faith alive The harder we fall, the closer we come To finding our hearts and the damage we've done Darling, I've held the devil's dirty hand But holding you now I know is heaven's last attempt Won't you walk beside me You know I can't make it alone Here the fields are dark and the wind is hard Hard as stone Roll out the sky Oh, and let me come home, come home I wanna come home [ Solo ] The harder we fall, the closer we come To finding the light and the warmth of the sun All that I've ever had I've let slip through my hands But holding you now, I know is heaven Heaven
