JOHN DENVER lyrics - Some Days Are Diamonds

Gravel On The Ground

Original and similar lyrics
(Hupp/Morrison) If our lives could lie before us like a straight and narrow highway so that we could see forever, long before we took the ride, we would never look to heaven, make a wish or climb a mountain, 'cause we'd always know the answer what's on the other side. But life ain't no easy freeway, just some gravel on the ground. You pay for every mile you go to spread some dust around. But we all have destinations, and the dust will settle down, this life ain't no easy freeway, just some gravel on the ground. So let's walk the road together, who knows what we'll find tomorrow. Maybe good times, maybe sorrow will be waiting round the bend Given time, two hearts discover what they're feeling for each other. At the best we'll end up lovers, at the least we'll make a friend. But life ain't no easy freeway, just some gravel on the ground. You pay for every mile you go to spread some dust around. But we all have destinations, and the dust will settle down, But life ain't no easy freeway, just some gravel on the ground. You pay for every mile you go to spread some dust around. But we all have destinations, and the dust will settle down, this life ain't no easy freeway, just some gravel on the ground.

Less One

ATMOSPHERE "Sad Clown Bad Spring #12"
[Chorus X2] Less one, just might lose breath Read me, my right's I've left Less one, just might lose breath [Verse 1] A routine stop, that's what he called it Registration, glovebox, license, wallet There's blood on the drivers face and neck So his police senses suspects it's a domestic The girl looked like she took one to the eye with his hand on the gun he says 'drop the keys outside' Naturally the gentlemen asked them 'Why?' Now the gun's coming out the holster, that's his reply Passenger seat starts to scream like she ain't ever seen the same thing on the TV screen 'Mam - shut your motherfucking mouth And sir - may I suggest that you unbuckle and get out' Door opens, left leg touched down Within a split second upper torso was on the ground Like god damn, you could've snapped his spine Pigs knee to the back, hog-tied by the swine Girlfriend's tryna hold back tears And the driver's on the concrete yelling and swearing Officer got a little bit lost in the zone It all took him back to childhood, home sweet home [Chorus X2] [Verse 2] Doesn't understand the reasoning for being lenient And won't give you the chance for anything but obediance He got that from his drunk old man Heavy-fisted bag of piss used to throw those hands That's why he never goes easy on kids He's got his own kids now, he knows exactly how it is Now last week he caught his son smoking speed So if you meet you might catch a couple broken teeth Sometimes it can get so intense Profiling the type that likes to put dick up in his princess It used to be hippy's, then it was black dudes Now she only fools around with loosers, with tattoos Well fuck em all, get on the ground dirt ball And sing hymns for the sins that protect and serve ya'll Peace disturbed, eat that curve Or you're looking down the barrel of steel made of nerves Puts his life into his work and work back into life so wife thinks he's a jerk Ain't no tellin what them boots might do if she leaves him for someone that looks like you [Chorus]

O Brother!

JOAN BAEZ "Gulf Winds"
You've got eyes like Jesus But you speak with a viper's tongue We were just sitting around on earth Where the hell did you come from? With your lady dressed in deerskin And an amazing way about her When are you going to realize That you just can't live without her? Take it easy Take it light But take it Your lady gets her power From the goddess and the stars You get yours from the trees and the brooks And a little from life on Mars And I've known you for a good long while And would you kindly tell me, mister How in the name of the Father and the Son Did I come to be your sister? Take it easy Take it light But take it You've done dirt to lifelong friends With little or no excuses Who endowed you with the crown To hand out these abuses? Your lady knows about these things But they don't put her under Me, I know about them, too And I react like thunder Take it easy Take it light But take it I know you are surrounded By parasites and sychophants When I come to see you I dose up on coagulants Because when you hurl that bowie knife It's going to be when my back is turned Doing some little deed for you And baby, will I get burned Take it easy Take it light But take it So little brother when you come To knock on my door I don't want to bring you down But I just went through the floor My love for you extends through life And I don't want to waste it But honey, what you've been dishing out You'd never want to taste it And if I had the nerve To either risk it or to break it I'd put our friendship on the line And show you how to take it Take it easy Take it light But take it

Cold Highway

ELTON JOHN "Elton John"
Your life stepped lightly out our hands When no one's looking out you understand Your world was a wheel but the cog ceased to turn The bottom fell out and our fingers got burned And there's a cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground Oh your black icy snare once cut down my friend In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end Every new version of the way of life Leaves you reckless and searching for stars in the night But whose kid are you when they finally decide The lifestyle you led and the way that you died But they're oh so simple, they're still trying to tell The difference for you between heaven and hell To glorify something, your legends are found But all they bought you was a hole in the ground Years rolling by just like a dream I'm partly human and I'm partly machine They've lost you and fate put your name on a stone Perhaps now my friend they might leave you alone

Round And Round

ATMOSPHERE "Headshots: SE7EN"
(Get Down) Round and round, upside down Living my life underneath the ground [repeated] I never had the skills that it took to sell weed I was too generous, too understanding to your needs As far as school, I lacked the motivation for the occupation Preparation, guess I'll never catch that bacon I need to find a duty doing sales or some shit Cause I was always good at talking people into dumb shit Fuck it, just program some drums I'll be honest to myself and take the wealth if it comes Run baby, run baby Because its metro its destined to ruin Let go of that echo, baby what are you pursuing? Priorities are twisted and heads not on straight I think I'm gonna pop if I don't stop and take a long break And find time to reflect, I need to take a second Quit breaking my neck to get this fat paycheck Because money is the root of all people Ayo most people are evil so I'm on a roof shooting at bald eagles Adrenaline, mescaline, ephedrine and apple sauce Ain't no way to hang a platinum records on these battered walls Every man's a faggot and all women are sluts So I'm a hold out my love for all a y'all to shake your butts and Round and round, upside down Living my life underneath the ground [repeated] Somewhat exotic how a lotta these cats went about it And when they got crowded let the boundaries cloud it I doubt that if they only knew how I was coming through Probably be the oasis they was running to Fashion, the lifestyle, around the fashions and lifestyles Of entities you don't know much less trust judgment Judgmental, the soldier with the common pencil So say what's up when you see me on the bus Ayo, the worst is yet to come, in fact its on its way You better go and get you some before there ain't no more today And hey I'll be just fine, trying to bust rhymes Got my eye on my son and my hand on my nine The clock stops, for everybody that you know that got shot And eight o' clock the seconds get hesitant for every cat that went in an accident And seven o' clock time stands still for everyman killed by the planet's build Consumed by the elements, water, earth, wind, fire When I die I wanna go like that, fuck the devil's development Round and round, upside down Living my life underneath the ground [repeated] (Get down) Run away, come away from the land of Sodom and Gomorrah Run away, come away from the land of the sinking sand [repeated] Round and round, upside down Living my life underneath the ground [repeated]

Eyes Closed

KANYE WEST
[Chorus] And I can see it with my eyes closed, now feeling like my life froze I’m about to hit the ground [Kanye West - Verse 1] I sold my soul to the devil that's a crappy deal Least it came with a few toys like a happy meal This game you could never win Cause they love you then they hate you then they love you again Get away from me misery Get away from me loneliness Get away from me fake bitches, I can’t take the phoniness Get away from me wack tracks I can only make only hits I’m an only child lost in the World Where did the lonely kids go when the bell ring its Feeling like hell rings Bringing me back down Checking my background Its ironic whats happening Imagine if I didn’t have the ends I wouldn't have so many imaginary friends I’m spaced out Dog, I be on that Moon talk Wonder if God ask Mike how to moon walk I swear to momma wish me and my father talk more I stopped visiting around the time I was a sophomore I guess everything I hate about me I see in him And we ain’t finna change, so we’ll never agree again till then I’ll be pouring out my soul Just a few things I see with my eyes closed [Chorus] And I can see it with my eyes closed, now feeling like my life froze I’m about to hit the ground [Kanye West - Verse 2] I sold my soul to the devil, I know its a crappy deal, at least it came with a few toys, like a Happy Meal, I’m spaced out dog, I be on that moontalk, I wonder if God asked Mike how to Moonwalk? You know the entertainment Angels Adriana for Giselle, lets exchange Angels photoshoot at my crib, lets exchange angles rockin nothin but them Tom Benz bangles, I’m so anxious I’m gettin anxiety begging one of these fuckin fashion houses to hire me, they say I’ve been an asshole, I said if you acquire me, I can be a quiet me, call it verbal dieting give me your herbal chai tea I’ll be calm as Tai Chi with a bad white bitch like Ice-T I’m not right dog, I’m slightly off, I’m Paranoid Like bonin’ Raw dog and wakin up with a slight cough yea, that’ll make ya dick quite soft plus my neck hurt too lemme take all this ice off never meant to hurt you, I should’ve had nights off but it cost too much to live and I never took the price off [Chorus] And I can see it with my eyes closed, now feeling like my life froze I’m about to hit the ground
