JOHN DENVER lyrics - Poems, Prayers And Promises

Wooden Indian

Original and similar lyrics
I was a red man, I was proud, I was strong. You were the white man and you stole away my home. Now I am a wooden Indian, painted dreams inside my head. Times the way you bring me down make me wish that I was dead. Na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na. I was a red man, in my passing made no sound. You were the white man and you drove me in the ground. Now I am a wooden Indian standing silent in the rain. I swear by my grandfather's father, we're gonna rise again. Na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na. I was a red man, I was proud, I was strong. You were the white man and you stole away my home. Now I am a wooden Indian standing silent in the rain. I swear by my grandfather's father, we're gonna rise again.

Standing In The Rain

JAMIE SCOTT "Park Bench Theories"
While you're talking to me With blood on your hands You're tired of being a stranger Tied up in his plans You cry forever And all you wanna know Is how you ever got here Why he ain't loving you Hope you just don't stop praying When the water does fall 'Cause standing in the rain Ain't gonna leave you dry People say your love pure, one of a kind Standing in the rain Ain't gonna leave you dry People say no We all fall sometimes Get burned sometimes Get cut wide open Thought you'd learn by now So why you wanna do this? Why you wanna fall? Why you keep pretending? To make sense of it all Hope you just don't stop praying When the water does fall Standing in the rain Ain't gonna leave you dry So stand up and feel the light Don't you wanna see All that you've got inside Your love is pure, one of a kind Standing in the rain Ain't gonna leave you dry So take the chains off your world 'Cause they ain't gonna do you well Take the lock from your heart Open it, 'cause it ain't hard It ain't hard Oh woman just don't stop praying When the water does fall 'Cause standing in the rain Ain't gonna leave you dry Stand up and feel the light Don't you wanna see All that you've got inside Oh woman, 'cause your love pure, one of a kind Standing in the rain Ain't gonna leave you dry See, your love is one a kind Standing in the rain Ain't gonna leave you dry Dry..

Dinner At Eight

RUFUS WAINWRIGHT "Want One"
No matter how strong I'm gonna take you down With one little stone I'm gonna break you down And see what you're worth What you're really worth to me Dinner at eight was okay Before the toast full of gleams It was great until those old magazines Got us started up again Actually it was probably me again Why is it so That I've always been the one who must go That I've always been the one told to flee When it fact you were the one long ago Actually in the drifting white snow You left me So put up your fists and I'll put up mine No running away from the scene of the crime God's chosen a place Somewhere near the end of the world Somewhere near the end of our lives But 'til then no, Daddy, don't be surprised If I wanna see the tears in your eyes Then I know it had to be long ago Actually in the drifting white snow You loved me No matter how strong I'm gonna take you down With one little stone I'm gonna break you down And see what you're worth What you're really worth to me

Perfect Day

CLAY AIKEN "Measure Of A Man"
I was fretting last night Lost out in the cold Couldn't see the light Then she opened up the door I came in from the dark fell into her arms just in time Now I know that I have left the past behind We'll let it go You could tell me tonight that maybe the world would end that the sun wouldn't rise and it was gonna rain again Just as long as she's in my arms its gonna be a perfect day There's a look in her eyes makes me feel alright Lights the perfect sky that I couldn't see before that she helped me to find now that I've seen her shine I know I'll never be alone 'Cause now I know that I have love I can't deny won't let it go You could tell me tonight that maybe the world would end that the sun wouldn't rise and it was gonna rain again Just as long as she's in my arms its gonna be a perfect day Think I lost you in another life a part of me that I left behind I won't go on without you And now I know that I have put the past behind I let it go You could tell me tonight that maybe the world would end that the sun wouldn't rise and it was gonna rain again Just as long as she's in my arms its gonna be a perfect day

R.a.t
-CHORUS- u dont have 2 cry 4 me, just make sure that she ride 4 me (x4) I've been jumped by 10 guys all at the same time had by eye bust open but i still never cried but the day, the judge gave my little brother life, i swear i couldn't stop the tears from falling out my eyes. I couldn't believe it, my little brothers locked up, he just turned 17 i swear this world is f**ked up the judge was rasicst! I dont care what anybody says, when i see him on road he's gonna breathe his last breath My dad was mad hurt, he'd just lost a son, thoughts runnin' through his head, how am'i gonna tell him mum? His girlfreind cried, coming like a river on the ground, when we told the rest of the family, they all broke down, we all prayed, Wished for better days, thinking about the pill, hoping he's ok, but dont worry Jay, see cause prison aint your fate, just be patient & wait & be destined for summing great!! -Chourus- You use 2 walk like me you use 2 talk like me, if a girl said your to young you tell her she might like me, just like me, you wanted 2 learn 2 rap u never sounded UK, use 2 sound like 2pac, Your a joker, you always was a soldier, Never back down thats exactly what i told ya i hope your keeping your head up bro, & if you need anything just let me no, your my little brother, & u no that i love ya we're from the same semen but got different mother but thats a minor, your much more than a half when your imitating dad you use 2 make me laugh, you use 2 get me vex, when you stole my clothes but just to let u no that if you were on road i swear brother, i'd give you my whole wardrobe and thats no lie! -Chorus- Im saying lord please let my little brother free & home he's ment to be here with his family & father i believe things happen for a reason i no he's done wrong but god i really need him my family's bleedin, its tearing us apart he's (?grown on the out??) but got a good heart now he see's the light, where before he only saw the dark prepeard to make a change make a brand-new start! People ask - Why Why Why - He done the things he did, cause just remember he was only a kid Now he's grown & big, much more mature, smarter, wiser, ready & strong father open the door & let m brother walk free if i had 1 wish god thats what it would be i hear & i see i have faith & i believe how much longer you gonna let my family grieve? -Chourus-
