JOHN DENVER lyrics - Take Me To Tomorrow

Jimmy Newman

Original and similar lyrics
(Paxton) Get up Jimmy Newman, the morning is come. The engines are rumbling, the coffee's all brewed. Get up Jimmy Newman, there's work to be done, and why do you lie there still sleeping? There's a waiting line forming to use the latrine, and the sun is just opening the skies. The breakfast they're serving just has to be seen, and you've only to open your eyes. Get up Jimmy Newman, the radio's on, the news is all bad, but it's good for a laugh. The tent flap is loose and the peg must be gone, and why do you lie there still sleeping? The night nurse is gone and the sexy one's here, and she tells us such beautiful lies. Her uniform's tight, on her marvelous rear, and you've only to open your eyes. Get up Jimmy Newman, you're missing the fun. They're talking us next, Jim it's time to go home. It's over for us, there's no more to be done, and why do you lie there still sleeping? It's state side for us, Jim, the folks may not know, and we'll let it be such a surprise. They're loading us next, Jim we're ready to go, and you've only to open your eyes. And you've only to open your eyes. Oh my God, Jimmy, open your eyes.

Open My Eyes

Ian Hunter "Artful Dodger"
(Ian Hunter/Darrel Bath) (On the Avenue of dead umbrellas In a place where nothin' sleeps No one's pickin' up the pieces - no one speaks Snow falls down - God dusts funky town For once this place looks pure Tell that to the people who live in the wind - they ain't so sure In the middle of a violent night - in the glare of a naked light In the middle of a nightmare At the bottom of the deepest well - in the middle of a private hell Shit scared - out there - nowhere Then I open my eyes - ice on the window - the sun is tryin' to break through Then I open my eyes - in the land of the livin' - and it's all right Seen a man rattle in a battle that no one could win I had to turn my soul away Shit's gonna happen - whether you like it or not S' just the way it is Then I open my eyes - boats on the river - headin' down the east side Then I open my eyes - and the trash(?) slips away Soft and supple - like some alibi You been walkin in her sleep - there ain't no cure for the secrets you hide In the middle of my wildest dream - in a place where nothin's what it seems At the time of a great loss From the hoods and the broken homes - this danger's got a smell of it's own In the middle of c-c-chaos In the valley of the shadow of death - the Bellevue boys out kickin' ass In the middle of fire Inside the belly of the beast - in a place where wonders never cease You go higher, higher, higher Then I open my eyes - life in a nutshell - it's over 'fore you know it Then I open my eyes And the city wakes up - puts coffee in cups - when I open my eyes And the kids go to school - Imus rules - when I open my eyes I love you n' you love me N' it rains so I buy an umbrella from the guy on 23rd and Second Avenue

Open Eyes

Authority Zero
Yeah you judge me For god knows what now Always bitching, always moaning And trying to bring me down But, I can't be bothered By all the things you say So shut your fucking mouth And pass that 40 my way! One way there's no way You inconsiderate prick You never see me, believe me You're making me sick Society will judge us But I don't give a fuck They're always handing us their shit That always turns up bad luck Just leave us alone You always tried to be on top And this you have shown Right in my face, just like you intended to Then pushed them right in my face, like intentions do Open Eyes, the stories inside Burning bridges so the past we hide You try to keep and open mind, It closes on you Well can't you see, what you've got to do? Now listen, why not try and understand That which made no sense to you Made no more sense to the man I guess that is why opinions run such amuck But hey, if you're asking me, I don't give a fuck So that's why, we try, to turn right away? You're running down that dirt road the road of today Passing everyone, I guess that's just how it goes Faster, hoping nobody knows! You live your life, and set mine aside You never tried Well now it's time to see, you're you, not me Realize! Well now you're down on your luck You're never going to be It's time for you to realize, it isn't you it's me Just live how you live, as all the day's pass you by But, don't you try and tell me how When all you do is lie Conforming to you? Oh give me a fucking break Just take a look at you my friend You're just another fake And no I'll never listen, to what you have to say It's going to be my life, till my dying day! Open eyes, the stories inside Burning bridges so the past we hide You try to keep an open mind it closes on you Well can't you see, what you've got to do yeah Open eyes, the stories inside All of your rules, you're punkin' all of your lies Just leave me alone, for me to decide All I'm asking of you is just open your eyes! Open your eyes! Open your eyes! Open your eyes!

The Garden

CARLY SIMON "Anticipation"
(Carly Simon/Jacob Brackman) Come into the garden, It's magical trees Dapple the sun as they sway with each lazy breeze; They'll set your mind at ease. Pretend you're a child, with nothing to hide, Then we'll join hands and let the universe swing wide; We'll lay our fears aside Hold me, here we can soon be born again Trust me, believe we can still be born again We've been sleeping all our lives, Atleast we can open our eyes. Our gates are unguarded, I've stolen the key, To where everything holy inside us is free to run free; To smell and taste and touch and see. Hold me, here we can soon be born again. Trust me, believe we can still be born again. We've been sleeping all our lives, At last we can open our eyes.

JEFFERSON STARSHIP "Blows Against The Empire"
Hide witch hide the good folks come to burn thee Their keen enjoyment hid behind a gothic mask of duty Put your old ladies back into bed Put your old men into their graves Cover their ears so they can't hear us sing Cover their eyes so they can't see us play Get out of the way Let the people play We're gonna get down on you Come alive all over you Dancin' down into your town You know Tyrannosaurus Rex was destroyed before By a furry little ball that crawled along The primeval jungle floor He stole the eggs of the dinosaur CLOSE YOUR EYES & CREATE THE SOUND OPEN YOUR HANDS & REBUILD THE GROUND We are egg snatchers - flashin' sunshine children Bunch of diamond thieves You unleash the dogs of a grade-B movie star governor's war While you sit in the dark - insane with the fear of dying We'll ball in your parks - insane with the flash of living I'M ALIVE I AM HUMAN I WILL BE ALIVE AGAIN So drop your fuckin' bombs Burn your demon babies I WILL BE AGAIN - Rabid lover-feelin' the starch in your grin Callin' for acid cocaine and grass And receiving your homemade gin PUSH THE BUTTON PULL THE SWITCH CUT THE BEAM C'MON MAKE IT MARCH Sign me up as a diplomat - my only office is the park You need to be out before you come in After you come you go In the midst of Yang is a smaller part of Yin And when it happens you know - THE DAWN COMES HEY DICK Whatever you think of us is totally irrelevant Both to us now and to you We are the present We are the future You are the past Pay your dues and get outta the way 'Cause we're not the way you used to be When you were very young We're something new We don't quite know what it is Or particularly care We just do it - You gotta do it Let the music do it, take you there Do it, do it, do it - gotta do it Something new, something new, something new New, New Open your eyes there's a new world a-comin' Open your eyes there's a new world today Open your hearts people are lovin' Open it all we've come to stay I said, Open it all we've come to stay I said, Open it all we've come to stay People, hey you people, everybody Us young people come to stay I said, people, on relief We've all come to stay Open your eyes there's a new world a-comin' Open it all we've come to stay Yeah, yeah, yeah, open it all Open it, open it, baby, NOW OPEN THAT DOOR

Open Your Eyes

BONNIE MCKEE "Trouble"
Day after day it was always you, And the sky came tumbling down Smoke in the air all i want is truth And i am a light that's a glow that's a light that's a warm place in your heart you kept turning me on and off til i went out and you were standing shivering in the dark Open your eyes, And see me leaving, Closing the door, da da da da da da da da da da da I wont think twice, when you come pleading not anymore da da da da da da da Hope was a dream that i had of you In the soft warm slumber of dawn. I must keep in mind that reality Can be painful if neglected to long i am aware that i will soon be released to the muzzy of a concrete jungle I thought that i could glide right in but instead It's over loneliness and pride i stumble Open your eyes, And see me leaving, Closing the door, da da da da da da da da da da da I wont think twice, when you come pleading not anymore no no no Open your eyes, And see that i am not afraid of saying goodbye Your strikes are up i'm gone So don't even try, Cuz i'm telling you right now hey that i'm a free young woman and i gotta be moving on once i was lost in my stride and getting you off, was my life i was in doubt now i know that getting rid of you was all i needed to grow once i was lost Now i'm found with my adidas, on the ground once i was blind, now i see the negative effect that you were having on me Open your eyes, And see me leaving, Closing the door, da da da da da da da da da da da I wont think twice, when you come pleading not anymore not anymore no no no You're not the man, That i remmber, tell me your name da da da da da da da da da da da cold empty seats that long November you never came no no oohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh da da da da da da da da da da da oooooooooooooo eh yeah da da da da da da da da da da da oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh no no da da da da da da da da da da da open your eyes and see me see me leaving oh ooooohhhhh (da da da da da da da da da da da) ooooooooooooooo
