Johnny Clegg Savuka lyrics - African Litany

High Country

Original and similar lyrics
There's a girl who lives in the high country Where the willows do not weep And the rain falls softly and gently And does not disturb her sleep There's a girl who lives in the high country Who lives on tea and dreams And I know that she does not love me But she plays the game so well Sit by my side and tell me boy Is the Milky Way that far? Is the universe really expanding? Tell me who you are? I am a bondsman - a poor man I am a ghettoman - I am a thief Who saw the gutterman who has no compassion Who heard the widow who cannot weep In the backstreets, in the poor towns I hear a thunder which cannot roll Mine are the eyes that steal from the orphanage A groveller, groping in the grime Inside is a Congo-jungle-beast-lion-leopard-man A tiger-man from Timbuktu Even a lover-man strutting down the avenue A winding river searching for the sea... And she said that she understood me She thought I was complex and sensitive Here she said, hold my hand, And have a muffin! Do you see the clouds boy? Do you see the ship? Do you see the duck? Do you love me? Brick by brick the empire is crumbling Stone by stone it cracks and folds Dreams of phantoms plotting in the jungle Vengeance in the elephant grass Someone's been at the liquor cabinet She's sure someone's been wearing her shoes All around her chaos and anarchy Light and reason overthrown I'm sure she says, they will attack the embassy, Take me home, take me home! There's a wind that blows through the high country Where the mansion used to stand And it blows through the broken down garden Where she once held my hand. La, la, la, la...

Harder To Breathe

MAROON 5 "Songs About Jane"
How dare you say that my behavior is unacceptable So condescending unnecessarily critical I have the tendency of getting very physical So watch your step cause if I do you'll need a miracle You drain me dry and make me wonder why I'm even here This Double Vision I was seeing is finally clear You want to stay but you know very well I want you gone Not fit to funkin' tread the ground I'm walking on When it gets cold outside and you got nobody to love You'll understand what I mean when I say There's no way we're gonna give up And like a little girl cries in the face of a monster that lives in her dreams Is there anyone out there cause it's getting harder and harder to breathe Is there anyone out there cause it's getting harder and harder to breathe What you are doing is screwing things up inside my head You should know better you never listened to a word I said Clutching your pillow and writhing in a naked sweat Hoping somebody someday will do you like I did When it gets cold outside and you got nobody to love You'll understand what I mean when I say There's no way we're gonna give up And like a little girl cries in the face of a monster that lives in her dreams Is there anyone out there cause it's getting harder and harder to breathe Is there anyone out there cause it's getting harder and harder to breathe Does it kill Does it burn Is it painful to learn That it's me that has all the control Does it thrill Does it sting When you feel what I bring And you wish that you had me to hold

That Girl From Brownsville Texas

JIM WHITE "Drill A Hole In That Substrate And Tell Me What You See"
I say "God, if you ain't smiling on me, then you ain't no friend of mine." It's late at night and this motel room's drunk, I been listening to the lonesome wind crying. My best friend once said, "Jim, what you cling to, that's the thing that you had best forget. For ain't no rose bed ever gonna bloom in an untended field of regrets." Guess I been busy killing time counting bullet holes in state line signs. I led a life of lonely drifting trying to rise above the buzzards in my mind. You get dizzy chasing 'round the tail of what you need to leave behind. Oh sweet Jesus, won't you help me? 'Cause all I'm trying to do is plant them seeds of love with that girl from Brownsville, Texas. Midnight radio, a crackly white gospel station kicking out the sounds of some half-assed revival. Me, I never much cared for the feelings you get quoting scriptures from out of the Bible. For as the crow flies I know only one cure for a permanent tear in your eye. You gotta crank like hell that rope on old sorrow's well 'til the day that the bucket comes up dry. [CHORUS] Now dreams are just prayers without the put on airs... and though my history of dreams is a scandal of back-assward schemes and romantic disasters where Lord, you dealt me more cards than I could handle. Still from the lips of this half-hearted sinner comes the pledge of a half-baked saint. 'Cause Lord I might finally be willing to become the religious fool you always wanted me to be... if in return we could just tell that girl I'm the man you and me both know that I ain't. [CHORUS]
