JOHN DENVER lyrics - It's About Time

Flight

Original and similar lyrics
(Magee, Jr./Denver/Henry/Holdridge) Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the sky on laughter silvered wings. Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things. I've wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence. Hovering there I've chased the shouting winds aloft and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air. The higher we fly, the farther we go, the closer we are to each other. The darker the night, the brighter the star, in peace go my sisters and brothers. Up, up, the long delirious burning blue I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark nor even eagle flew and while with silent lifting mind I trod the high untrespassed sanctity of space, put out my hand and touched the face of God. The higher we fly, the farther we go, the closer we are to each other. The darker the night, the brighter the star, in peace go my sisters and brothers.

She's A Big Star

KENNY CHESNEY
She was aware of her insecurities as she took the stage She was convinced if she got up there that She'd be discovered someday So she belted it She hit the high notes endlesly Oh she melted them As she brought them to their feet Chorus: She was a big star At Banana Joe's bar Where she sang karaoke every night She said if you work hard to get where you are It feels good in the hot spot light She was a big star She made the local cable shows Where the camera fell in love with her face After a couple of weekends The groupies were crawling all over the place She signed autographs Like she was Garth Brooks in a skirt And in the aftermath That small time town was hers Chorus She doesn't care anymore That her high school girlfriends cut her down The only thought she entertains is where they are And where she is now Her old neighbors swear they're certain she slept her way to the top She knows you don't get where your going Less you got somethin they ain't got So she sings tonight To Twenty Thousand plus And the young girls scream out loud Man that could be us She's a big star As she eats caviar Just before she performs every night She says if you work hard To get where you are It feels good in the hot spot light She's a big star She's a big star

Rise Like The Sun (Part 1: The Dawn)

K-OS
(All original rude boys know what do I, so heed warning as I stand before you without sorrow, driven eternally by the immortality of blackness, which leaves me confused when gangstas die today, the sun will still rise tomorrow) Aiyo, pain stains my brain, I go insane At times I wonder if I even know my name Or who I be, who I perceive to be me In a world where the fake get payed fully You can't fool me, if you can't cycle the greenbacks I mean that, so just chill with your feedback And all, all that talk about billboard charts Number one hits with no heart Now where as a kite gets you high like the rising sun I be breakin' brothers down and suprising 'em With my lyrical prophocies, no one's stopping me Cause I magnify words to high velocity Sing this, do you know where you're going to? Do you like the things that life is showing you? Where are you going to? [Chorus] I rise like the sun sometimes, but then I fall And like a black moon I rise when the night falls And when the night falls, the mic illuminates And it's the ultra-violet rays that keep me rising on my mission I take a penny for your thoughts, a nickel for your desire I got the vocab to set the world on fire Now I remember laying back as a youth Just looking at the sun, wondering about the truth And how it's supposed to be And how at times if the music felt close to me Rocking spots since the age of sixteeen You know what I mean, as I grab the microphone, come correct and hit the scene So let it fly baby, let if fly baby I got the vocal canibus to get you high baby You know these brothers rock the spot when it's all said and done Definetly represent because we rise like the sun [Chorus] I'll save the vanity for your man and expanded to global spaces You can see the cold heart looks on their faces It's all a plan to exterminate the truest Kos meditate like a microphone buddhist Now, I'm not a teacher Just trying to reach ya I'll make you recognize The sun will always rise And even when the night falls, the moon illuminates brilliantly It's all resellient, see Sometimes I think about this world that we live in And get fed up, and yo I think I want to give in But it's the ultra-violet rays Saving days And stimulates my melonance To eloquance [Chorus]

No Peace In The Jungle

JOE WALSH "Got Any Gum?"
Said the mamba snake to the cockatoo I can't get no sleep like I used to do All night long -- the wild boys run through the streets They're shootin' up the night I listen to them fight There's no peace in the jungle when the moon is high Watch the war babies go hungry and cry There's no peace in the jungle when the moon is high Everybody's fightin' -- nobody knows why At dawn the refugees are seeking shelter And from the violence of the night they run in fright -- Helter skelter From the volatile eruption -- and the wolves of war Nurse their young -- famine and destruction There's no peace in the jungle when the moon is high Watch the war babies go hungry and cry There's no peace in the jungle when the moon is high Everybody's fightin' -- nobody knows why

How In The World

Louise
Tell me How in the world does a bird in the sky keep flying higher will's trying Tell me how in the world does a flower bloom show such beauty What of the trinkets we're buying A world behind Can't you see the sunshine Roses bloom Flowers in the field The pool of light Reflections in the moonlight A dolphin swims Tell me how in the world can a smile of a child be healing What the doctors are dealing How in the world Does the Autum, summer, spring Give a life to what has been And welcomes winter in The eagles fly Higher than a mountain the blue whales swim Deep within the sea and as we destroy and why we destroy it the world we in surely you have to see How in the world can we see a shinning star and place it on a jar yet it still to far How in the world can a man be on the moon yet it still to soon for peace to be here soon How in the world can a runner full right down to a place that is never found but we're still look to the ground you see we search to find the goal from the story that I'm told to see the greed that has been generated the young from the old How in the world Can you see a shinning star see a shinning star and place it on the jar place it on the jar and yet it's to far How in the world can the man be on the moon man be on the moon yet it still to soon still to soon for peace to be here soon How in the world How in the world can you see a shining star and place it in on a jar ooooh yeah and yet it's to far How in the world can the man be on the moon yet it still to soon Still to soon.

Ayo

ANDRE NICKATINA "Hell's Kitchen"
OK... got some for me? [San Quinn:] Yeah, yeah, listen to the story I'm about to tell Another tale about that yayo Little girl once innocent and sweet 14 introduced to the street Started from weed, big smoke outs Before you could exhale, blunt in your mouth Sham, Nay, blew you blew Now you need something else to do A new high to try, a new place to go Introduced to the yay to the yo House full of girls, old and young Playin it on the table takin one on ones Use dollar bills just to snort the lines You see the big girls do it so of course it's fine Cocaine enforced on your mind Now blow, then they blowin ya time Let's go [Chorus: x2] Ayo for yayo Walk around with yayo, all in my nasal I must have been craze yo [San Quinn:] Chompin and compin kicks Supplyin people with they fix Where you fit? Fillmore Street is where you sit Don't go in the house till you move a zip Worked a day and night shift To stay awake, a nigga might sniff Not too much cause you might slip Instead of 28, you cookin 26 Keep a gat in the pack in the sock Take a couple of tubes, then it's back to the block Back to the service out the sack Experimentin with that salt, what about that crack, huh? One try, another try without a doubt Papered out, always at the Powder house Day time, night time, nigga powdered out Coulda been a papered up power house [Chorus x2] [San Quinn:] Like you and I, super high, like superfly One more line, one more rhyme like Peruvian Fine I can keep you down, and get you high You like to blow? like Boston George You want some more, for you and your whores? I kick off wars, and get behind walls And corporate doors, executive nose sore Rich man, high, eight balls and quarters They call me, placin they orders Bring me across the border, buyin the case Before I'm sold, they take the case Snortin habit, not with affordin Some use me, strictly out of boredom I hooked people before man, I warned them I took many people out before them Doin my job, connected with the mob Got President Bush, Whitney, and Bob Many others all walks of life have one on ones with me every night [Chorus x4] That's some good coke
