Eclipse

Original and similar lyrics
The sun is slowly fadin' in the western sky Sometimes it takes forever for the day to end Sometimes it takes a lifetime Sometimes I think I'll never see the sun again There's a heavy smog between me and my mountains It's enough to make a grown man sit and cry It's enough to make you wonder It's enough to make the world roll up and die I think it's kind of interesting the way things get to be The way that people work with their machines Serenity's a long time comin' to me The fact I don't believe I know what it means In the east a shaded moon is hangin' lazily I do believe I saw the old man smile I do believe I did I do believe he's been laughin' all the while I think it's kind of interesting the way things get to be The way that people work with their machines Serenity's a long time comin' to me The fact I don't believe I know what it means any more When the sun is slowly fadin' in the western sky Sometimes it takes forever the day to end Sometimes it takes a lifetime Sometimes I think I'll never see the sun again Sun again

Old Before My Time

THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND "Hittin' The Note"
There is a long hard Road follows for behind me, Its so cold I'm about to die, Chasing a dream around the world Its got me feeling down Though it use to make me high Looking for answers searching for the truth, In an ocean of lies. trying to find a reason to make the hole thing right, will make you old before your time When I was younger, I thought I ruled the world , It was an oyster at my feet, Dancing to my own drum, fishing out the pearl wish I would have been much more discreet I've lived a lifetime, acting out apart, Its been a long uphill climb, now all the things that use to mean so much to me Has got me old before my time, Wondering aimlessly,wondering down, would it ever be much different now, Remind me of the past, I slip into a dream, funny things ain't never what they seem, [Solo] Living like children, never doing what we are told , Would not hessitateto take to take a chance, That Road behind me now was paved with fool's gold, Its almost time for the victory dance, No more feeling guilty, for things I never did, feeling nothing for my crime , Living like a gypsy , dreaming like a kid, it makes me old before my time... There is a long hard Road, it lies so far behind me...

I Got The Knack

Everlast "Forever Everlasting"
You got it (13x) Get up everybody and listen to this rhyme My name is Everlast and yo I'm always on time I got what it takes to make this groove complete When my DJ cuts he's never missin' a beat I'm down with the Syndicate and they're down with me I'm also down with Divine, Bilal and Quincy D Terry B., DJ Lethal and my brother Kool Nick Kid Jazz, Scratch, Bangle and Cut Master Quick I worked hard and long to master this traight And to quote my other song, yo I'm just out to get paid So sleep on me now, For my time will come Everlast lasts forever That's why I'm number one I got the knack (7x) Everlast is in effect, gettin' full respect I collect big checks, 1's, 5's, 10's, 20's, a 100 G's I'm pullin' honey's left and right, day and night You gotta see it to believe it, it's quite a sight There all on my tip to get a sip of this poetic performer I can get whipped but I'm out to get paid, not to get laid All across the country my records gettin' played The radio stations, clubs and renkores All the shows I play I make them do encores So sleep on me now, For my time will come Everlast lasts forever That's why I'm number one I got the knack (5x) (Ah, yah, hit me, alright, check this out) Step up place your bet and I'll serve your fortune But first I must issue just one word of caution Dope lyric presentations are my soul notiriety Everlast is on the rise movin' through society My voice is moist resighting choice vocals Respected world wide and feared by locals Poppin' junk out your punk mouth Makin' bets it's too late for regrets It's time to pay your debts, E-v-e-r-l-a-s-t It's the name that I fed a poetic demigod with skin that is fare I got the knack (10x) Now there are too many people in this world tryin' to play me Like I'm some kind of sucker constantly they disobey me Tellin' me what's sellin', what kinda records be charted Sound like him, sound like her but they all sound retarded Takin' very little time to write down a rhyme It's confusing to see so many people so fly Some think that it's a sell out rhymin' to this beat But Everlast takes any groove and makes it sound complete I got the knack!

It Takes A Long Time

JOHN NOLAN "Height"
Well, they dragged me from the party, kicking and screaming, Clawing at the carpet, chewing up the scenery and talking to my friends with no regard for decency. I couldn't tell you what I did or what it meant to me, But I keep finding all these pieces, and soon they start to form a picture. and I can understand what I've done. But it takes a long time to understand why. You made it home, but I was left on the road to sing songs, drink hard to fight fatigue and the cold, Sleepwalking through the days Just waiting till the clock says it's time to let go. Till it's time to give up again and pretend That I'm not bound by habit, I'm not a slave to my needs. I choose to let go, so I must be in control. This must be who I wanna be. But it takes a long time to understand why. It takes a long time to understand why. Constant effort, constant concentration, Constant concern, constant contemplation, Constantly checking my tone for accuracy. I'm constantly defining my inability. It takes a long time to understand why. You know it takes a long to understand why. It takes a long time.

Long Island Blues

JULIAN CASABLANCAS "Phrazes For The Young"
I see a drug bust in your eyes. There are bruises on your thighs. I can see you're trying to hide All the darkness in your mind. You got sawdust on your toes From that sports bar down the road. You have beer glass in your feet. You say kiss me on the cheek. Some people get paid to talk Some people get paid to listen Some people buy a ticket And can't wait for intermission. Just like some might love you blindly Some might love you with conditions Some will love you like an unloved child Loves family traditions. Now she's tainted by the syringe Try to rhyme a word with orange I'm a cheap and ugly sinner To whose soul love is so foreign. So if you're sideways And if you wanna go my way Before a meteor shower Decides that you should be devoured Whether you're locked up in the tower Or if you charge them by the hour In mama's eyes you were a flower Forget the aftertaste of life gone sour. Will you finish what you started? Travel the seas you never parted Remember things you disregarded Communicate with the departed Believe in things you thought weren't founded Prepare to always be astounded Or keep your dreams and visions grounded It took a while but then I found it. No one inspired you in time So you left your love behind In a world that discourage One who's young and full of courage. You said you'd start at the bottom But instead you start at the top Be careful what you wish for On your lap it just might drop. It's a lonely life at the bottom It can be lonely too at the top Make sure your heart is singing Right until the day it stops. They all say dream But what they mean is be specific or obscene It's time to find some time to fail at makes you most happy. Sometimes you concentrate on lovers To forget everything else Sometimes you hate each other to forget you hate yourself. So if you're sideways And if you wanna go my way Before a meteor shower Decides that you should be devoured Whether you're locked up in the tower Or if you charge them by the hour Tell me you'll always be a flower Forget the aftertaste of life got sour. Will you finish what you started? Before you celebrate with a cigarette Remember things you disregarded Communicate with the departed Prepare to always be astounded Believe in things you thought weren't founded Don't keep those dreams and visions grounded It took a while but now I found it.
