JOHN DENVER lyrics - Farewell Andromeda

Angels From Montgomery

Original and similar lyrics
(Prine) I am an old woman, named after my mother, my old man is another child that's grown old. If dreams were lightning, and thunder were desire, this old house would have burnt down a long time ago. Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery, make me a poster of an old rodeo. Just give me one thing that I can hold on to, to believe in this living is just a hard way to go. When I was a young girl, I had me a cowboy. He weren't much to look at, just a free rambling man. But that was a long time, and no matter how I try, the years just flow by like a broken down dam. Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery, make me a poster of an old rodeo. Just give me one thing that I can hold on to, to believe in this living is just a hard way to go. There's flies in the kitchen, I can hear 'em in there buzzing. And I ain't done nothing, since I woke up today. How the hell can a person go to work in the morning, come home in the evening and have nothing to say? Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery, make me a poster of an old rodeo. Just give me one thing that I can hold on to, to believe in this living is just a hard way to go. Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery, make me a poster of an old rodeo. Just give me one thing that I can hold on to, to believe in this living is just a hard way to go.

I MOTHER EARTH "Blue Green Orange"
I'm afraid of a sure thing of a change in the here and now and the force when it hits me the full weight of it when I'm down The fucking air in the city when the phase-shifting sign is off if this ship is unsteady, how will that lifeboat hold us all I aint gonna crawl->tell them all to forget it tell them that's it then call it off cause I'm worried about money and paradigm stores running low I ain't gonna crawl but I'll lie on the road so how can I laugh how can I take it without some doubt how can I laugh how can I face it right away with everything gone wrong with everything all over anyway I need some grace Say goodbye to aesthetic, better taste and essential self 'cause I'm just tired of running and there's a time bomb in this head So just who's the real killer and what made his paint dry It's kind of hard to imagine Holidays in Neurotica A slap in the faith, hard, opened hand is the one reality I can never protect myself from, even in the sparkle yard at end of day warm summer madness in the bouquet of a dream son, astral projecting, failing to right wrongs when the whole thing starts to open up I ain't gonna crawl without falling hard, without some pain whenever the fog breaks and a day takes hold I just can't think straight right away maybe I'll come around... or not I'm swinging again and all my ex-friends say its psycho-pathetic and way too gone, almost painless even though I wondered if something was wrong all along.

Hold It Down

J. COLE "The Warm Up"
[Talking] [Verse 1] If my heart stop pumping tomorrow don't feel no sorrow 'Cause life is hard mentally And everything is meant to be Sometimes I ask myself if I was gone who would remember me? It's hard to tell Oh well, sit back and sip this Hennessey Now lately it's been hard to tell my friends part from my enemies 'Cause plenty niggas show me love but in their hearts they envy me Why? I'm just a nigga from around the way Told my mama I'd make it happen and I found a way Pour out some liquor for my niggas at the crossroads And may the Lord give guidance to the lost souls I know that deep inside these niggas know there's more to life Than macking hoes and stacking dough Man I'm sorta like a nigga who done seen greener grass So when they think they balling like the dream team My nigga I done seen meaner cash And I'm trying to get Follow me nigga I'm on the prowl Headed to the top You watching me nigga? Then hold it down [Chorus] Hold it down If you need to holla at me don't hesitate to call It ain't a problem I can be there I ride for Lie for you I know you'd do the same I would die for you So hold me down When the times is hard I'll be around So hold it down And it don't matter how far I'll be around (I hold it down) [Verse 2] You was my nigga from the younger days We grew up I went to school, you went the other way But still my brother man I'm sitting reminiscing on All of them bitches we was tripping over, kissing on Or at the skating rink We trying to bag some new hoes And if I needed gear you'd let me hold your new clothes And vice-a-versa man But now that life is worser man A nigga slow caking I'm broke trying to chase a dream You just got probation And I'm stressed Your little sister pregnant What's next? Oh shit, my mama doing drugs At times it's hard to feel blessed In this madness I holla at my nigga in the sadness Remember when your mama tried to beat you with that bat? Shit, remember your chick Nina? Man that ass was the fattest Remember my crush on Sabrina? Yo she's still the baddest I'm just glad that I can holla at you It's been a while Until the next time I hear from you Aye, hold it down [Chorus] Hold it down If you need to holla at me don't hesitate to call It ain't a problem I can be there I ride for Lie for you I know you'd do the same I would die for you So hold it down When the times is hard I'll be around So hold me down And it don't matter how far I'll be around (I hold it down) [Verse 3] These is tough times baby But we'll make it through You know I'm headed for the top I swear I'm taking you Just hold a nigga down through this bad weather The rain falling Ain't balling but I have better A woman with an ass and a strong mind It's been a long time Sometimes you on your bullshit Sometime I'm on mine Will I have a hard time to stay committed? Or do I only want your voice moaning when I hit it? Man only God knows I know deep in your heart you don't want me to be no star though There's groupies after every show You scared I'm fucking every hoe And girl I ain't 'gon lie and say I won't 'Cause shit you never know But may the Lord give me strength I love you more than anything The future mother of my kids The love is real And if we ever part, God forbid I love you still So when I'm on the road don't trip You know I'm down for you Keep it tight and don't slip And hold it down for me [Chorus] Hold it down If you need to holla at me don't hesitate to call It ain't a problem I can be there I ride for Lie for you I know you'd do the same I would die for you And hold me down When the times is hard I'll be around So hold me down And it don't matter how far I'll be around (I hold it down) [x3]

Angel Without Wings

Elegy
Growing up in extreme poverty, and living in a town filled with empty promises, the young boy is filled with scepticism. He battles between right and wrong. Facing a horrifying decision, which no child should have to make, his whole life could be turned upside down. Does he listen to the wishes of his kind, but stressful mother, to remain living in poverty, and be persecuted by many? The alternative is to take a road into crime and deception, with his so called friends. Either way he'll suffer the consequences. His mother sad, now she's left alone No shoulder to cry on, no hand to hold To stay alive, worked her fingers to the bone Guilt nor shame, her child must have a home She tried to teach him right from wrong A town without vision, they don't belong Eternal friends, persuasive lies Tainted images, through sorry eyes Don't be shy, pull up a stool, stick with us You'll do okay Money talks, that's their rule, Once you join, you're here to stay you can't walk away Lord knows she tried hard to save him The angel without wings Stigmatised, the poor, the few Opportunities given, but not to you He searched along the corridors of power A fruitless journey, his darkest hour By any rule he doesn't play, Now he's the keeper, no-one's fool Who said crime doesn't pay All his fears have disappeared Lord knows she tried so hard, to save him Lord knows she tried so hard, to save him The angel without wings Time, will it tell, a choice of heaven or hell The years have passed by, the leaves have fallen Learn to survive in time, you're on your own

Living Alone

Loudon Wainwright
You sit at a desk and you squirm in a chair You stretch out on a couch, you could fall asleep there But you lie in your bed and you try not to think You put on your bathrobe and you stand at the sink And then you look into the mirror and you unplug the phone You re-read the letter, you're living alone. You clear out a closet and you listen to a clock You wipe off a table and you pick up a sock And then you put up your feet and you stand on your head You hate what you did and you regret what you said And then you gaze at a spapshot and wait for the tone You talk to yourself, yeah, you're living alone. You were always alone, but you just didn't know it You tried living with someone but then you had to blow it And if there's one thing you learned after living with her Is that you're not the man now that you never were. So you turn up the heat and you fight off a cold You thumb through the Bible as you sit there on hold But you're your own boss you can do as you please Open a window and let in a breeze You sit down to dinner, yeah, you cooked your own You light a candle, you're living alone. You think about her and how did it end Your cleaning lady has become your very best friend You're back in your hometown, you're living in fear They wonder where has he been and why is he here You're watching the reruns of the Twilight Zone Your life in a nutshell, you're living alone. You were always alone, but you just didn't see it You tried to be someone different but you just couldn't be it And if there's one thing you learned after all of it Is that you're usually fired before you can quit. What you need is a dog, some goldfish or a cat A boa constrictor and a laboratory rat The end is at hand now and you have the means A roll of toilet paper and the right magazines Your parents are dead now and your kids are full grown You're 53 now, you're 53 now, you're 53 now You're living alone.

AKON
INTRO Count every blessing while im screaming out Up front! (Up front!) Akon! (Akon!) Convict Music! (Convict Music!)

VERSE 1 Another day up in the hood, cant believe these cats still bangin (banging) Look at the years we wasted, on the corner block still slangin (slaging) No matter how much we try to make peace, gun shots still rainin (rainin) Cuz to be a hood legend, you die first, then become famous Cuz i done seen this type of thing before Just hangin out by the corner store Stick up kids wit them guns galore Layin there, body down, stretched on the floor I thought about it, man im way too fly To have a fellow robbing me outside Thats why i keep that thing by my side And count every blessin while im screamin out CHORUS I hate to say it but the people that surrounding me Are way too shady The only people i can trust is my family and my lady All my dogs got guns Ready for action They won't betray me Your the type to run Or to hold my tongue When it gets crazy See i've been through this type of thing before Even had trouble with the law On the couch when the smash my door But they wont find the cash stashed under the floor I never could understand the cause I was the one to pull the shorter straw Couldnt live this type of life no more So i had a part of me screamin out: CHORUS Im in blue, with them BF frames Walkin on lean, while mind chain hangs Drivin somethin, pronounce mad strange Never mad cool, cuz i been through flames Walk with a limp, cuz i been through games Now shes a ho, cuz she been through gangs Beef with ghats for a small chunk change Im rich now, thats more chunk change The cops know slang Man get the picture before u out the frame Call me heart throb, cuz im so fame Couldnt come close if u sat in my range My scars can prove but im passion and pain Singin: CHORUS
