JOHN DENVER lyrics

For Baby

Original and similar lyrics
All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go, I'm standing here, Outside your door, I hate to wake you up and say Good Bye. But the done is breaking, surley moan, The taxi is waiting, blown his horn. Already I'm so lonesome I could die. Refrain: So kiss me and smile for me, Tell me that you wait for me, Hold me, like you never let me go. Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane, Don't know when I'll be back again, Oh Babe I hate to go. So many times, I let you down, So many times, I played around, but I can tell you, they don't mean a thing. Every place I go, I'll thing of you, Every song I sing, I sing for you. When I come back, I'll bring your wedding ring. Refrain Now the time has come to leave you, One more time has come to kiss you, Close your eyes and I'll be on my way. Thing about the day will come, When I won't have you leave alone, About the day, when I won't have to stay. Refrain

This Time Tomorrow

Captain Tractor "Bought The Farm"
It's been a while since we met here beside this dirty harbour We used to listen to the radio and stare out at the sea I know you don't recall that song we heard But I haven't forgotten a single word It's nothing to you it was everything to me I'm weary of this tired town and wary of its vices And we were finished years ago, I'm sure that you'd agree 'Don't know you anymore,' is all you say 'And you're back out on the road tomorrow anyway.' Did you rehearse how you would say how you'd been missing me? REFRAIN: Not bound to this desolate place This time tomorrow I'll be gone 1400 miles and moving Leave these troubled streets behind Forget the look on your desolate face This time tomorrow I'll be no one Nothing but a ghost of something fading in the dust Of all you have and all you know and all you see All you'll have is this memory of me I've nothing left to leave with you - just leave you with your silence But I would give a fortune to know what's churning in your head Because the sentiment of your silent smile Has silently been killing me all the while What I would give to get inside your skull Sort through all the things you haven't said REFRAIN It's what you haven't said And what you haven't done And all the things you haven't mentioned REFRAIN

Shine

Henry Rollins "Weight"
If I listened to everything that they said to me I wouldn't be here And if I took the time to bleed from all the tiny little arrows shot my way I wouldn't be here The ones who don't do anything are the ones who try to put you down You could spend your entire life in the nowhere land of self doubt When you start to doubt yourself The real world will eat you alive It's time to align your body with your mind It's hero time It's time to align your body with your mind It's time to shine I'm talking to you. Hero time starts right now If you think you've got 100 extra years to mess around you're wrong This time is real. Your time is now. It's hero time. Hard times are getting harder The liars are acting strong You better get a grip on yourself Or you won't be around too long No such thing as spare time No such thing as free time No such thing as down time All you got is life time. GO I got grace in times of friction I got truth in times of fiction I got no time for the hype Suicide? I'm not the type No time for drug addiction No time for smoke and booze Too strong for a shortened life span I've got no time to lose

Kiss Me Idle

THE VERVE PIPE "The Verve Pipe"
Roses dead in dirty water held up by the vase Once a gift good-bye but now remind me to replace Hardened petals bang the dresser when they fall away Kiss me idle Kiss me without make-up, leave no marks upon my chest Kiss me for no other reason then to give your eyes a rest Kiss me slow and leave me lifeless, let this all digest Kiss me idle Slowly, slowly, the longer it takes the better mistakes we end up stumbling on I wouldn't want to leave upon your tongue a sour taste Leave it foiled and disappointed, wanting to be chased A mouth that's open wide and speechless seems like such a waste Kiss me idle One time lazy, another time dear, despite all your fears of outlasting my love I can't afford the stubborn sleep on photographs of birthdays past So close your eyes and catch your breath and I will wait right here I tied my fingers to remind me to leave you every day While my hair is growing white, the strings are turning gray One by one they come undone until they fall away Kiss me idle kiss me idle

Working Titles

DAMIEN JURADO "Maraqopa"
You could mess up my life in a poem Have me divorced by the time of the chorus There's no need to change any sentence When you always decide where I go next Many nights you would hide from the audience When they were not in tune with your progress In the end you're a fool like the journalist Who turns what you sing into business You could use to be more like a hero A darker shade of damage distortion Wearing death like a cape or a costume Cut your ties and leave town when you want to Killing time 'til I pass through the chamber Or the room you keep my replacement so fed up, still you're starving on paper You're no him, but he's you, only better Leave me an exit to damage I could use a ledge to jump off of I wasn't lying when I said this was over I have questions that lead to more questions Running time that will cut off my fingers You wrote about me on every new record And I'll show up in a title of your song I only hope somebody requests it What's it like for you in Washington I've only seen photos of Washington I'll never know Leave me Manhattan, I want the evergreens Write me a song I can sing in my sleep As sure as the rain that will fall where you stand I want you and the skyline, these are my demands What's it like for you in Washington I've only seen photos of Washington I'll never know, know

Life's Been Good

EAGLES "Hell Freezes Over"
I have a mansion Forget the price Ain't never been there They tell me it's nice I live in hotels Tear out the walls I have accountants Pay for it all They say I'm crazy but I have a good time I'm just looking for clues at the scene of the crime Life's been good to me so far My Maserati Does one eighty-five I lost my license Now I don't drive I have a limo Ride in the back I lock the doors In case I'm attacked I'm making records My fans they can't wait They write me letters Tell me I'm great So I got me an office Gold records on the wall ust leave a message Maybe I'll call Lucky I'm the same after all I've been through (Everybody sing) I'm cool (He's cool) I can't complain but sometimes I still do Life's been good to me so far I go to parties Sometimes until four It's hard to leave When you can't find the door It's tough to handle This fortune and fame Everybody's so different I haven't changed They say I'm lazy but it takes all my time (Everybody sing) Oh yeah (Oh yeah) I keep on going guess I'll never know why Life's been good to me so far baby, inside the Sad Cafe.
