JONI MITCHELL lyrics

Love Or Money

Original and similar lyrics
The firmament of Tinsel Town Is strung with tungsten stars Lot's of forty watt successes He says where's my own shining hour He's the well kept secret of the underground He's in debt to the company store Because his only channelled aspiration Was getting back that girl he had before He's got stacks and stacks of words that rhyme Describing what it is to lose He's got some just for laughs He's got some for love That mainline to his blues Some to shed a little light on you and on me Some to shed a little light on the human story The wars of pride and property The rebel Irish and the promised land Jew Fighting behind his eyes and over seas Wounded in action and no ceasefire in view Brave reporters bring the battles home But tonight inside that box Just more bang bang ketchup color to him Just more Twentieth Century Fox All because that ghostly girl comes haunting Just out of reach-outside his bed And she kicks the covers off his sleep For the clumsy things he said She commands his head-She tries his sanity She demands his head-Tonight unknowingly Vaguely she floats and lacelike Blown in like a curtain on the night wind She's nebulous and naked He wonders where she's been He grabs at the air because there's nothing there Her evasiveness stings him With long legs-long lonely legs Bruised from banging into things One day he was standing just outside her door He was carrying an armload of bright balloons She just laughed She said she heard him knocking And she teased him for the moon Is one the moon, dear clown, Tied to a string for me? He tried but he could not get it down For truth or for mystery He tried but he could not get it down For love or money

Stained Glass Window

Clay Crosse
Mark Heimermann and Phil Madeira Just beneath the rafters In a church of stone Laid a stained glass window In the attic all alone A work of art forgotten, A treasure thrown away Taken from the sunlight, It was just a useless frame Chorus: Ooh the things in life we take for granted Ooh the things of wonder we could know Ooh I want to be illuminated Full of Heaven's light Shining through my life Let the window of my heart reveal Your love I took the stained glass window And held it to the light Years of hidden glory Reappeared before my eyes Every brilliant color Glowing like a fire Full of revelation And created to inspire Repeat chorus Chant: Thirsting for the morning sun I am Yours, Thy will be done Let Your love in me unfold With it's beauty to behold. There's a stained glass window In the soul of a man A pattern of perfection That was made with holy hands And with the light of heaven Pouring through each pane Truth in all its splendor Is revealed and will remain

Tonight's The Night

THE WALLFLOWERS
Stay away from my window Stay away from my back door, too Disconnect the telephone line Relax baby and draw that blind Kick off your shoes and sit right down Loosen off that pretty French gown Let me pour you a good long drink Ooh baby don't you hesitate, cause... Tonight's the night It's gonna be alright Cause I love you girl Ain't nobody gonna stop us now C'mon angel my hearts on fire Don't deny your man's desire You'd be a fool to stop this tide Spread your wings and let me come inside Tonight's the night It's gonna be alright Cause I love you girl Ain't nobody gonna stop us now Don't say a word my virgin child Just let your inhibitions run wild The secret is about to unfold Upstairs before the night's too old Tonight's the night It's gonna be alright Cause I love you girl Ain't nobody gonna stop us now

Always Wanted To Be A Ho

ICE-T "The Seventh Deadly Sin"
[Intro] This goes out to all you ladies out there. A lot of you won't grow up to be lawyers or doctors, but you have a dream. And I think you should follow your dream. When you was just a little girl, you used to love nice things Pretty party dresses, candy and rings You was your Momma's little angel, Daddy's little girl They used to fix your hair up in pretty ribbons and curls Your sex drive was much deeper than the rest of the girls You used to freak your boyfriends, take them 'round the world As a teen, you didn't like school that much Your moms drank, your daddy likes to cuddle and touch Too much, so you hit the street looking for love Affection and devotion, met none of the above Met me in the club working your fake id Looked me in the face like a slave set free I said walk into my eyes baby, come with me I can show you things that you dream to see Take you off the street get you something to eat Something nice to wear and a place to sleep My name is Ice, I'm the nicest guy you're ever gonna meet Tell me what you want, I'll make your life complete She said, I always wanted to be a ho I always wanted to be a ho You just had to find the player that was right for you, Now you met the Ice baby, and your dreams came true The first thing we're gonna do is buy yourself a new dress Take some pictures, put you in the LA Express Teach you how to walk in some high heeled shoes Let you strut your stuff by the House of Blues Or farther down Sunset where the tricks all cruise 'Are you my pimp' Oh dear God don't say that I'm your manager, your boyfriend, you're agent, your mack Now I'm a do my hair baby, I'll be right back Because we gotta look good when we hits the track Now your real name 'Shirl' Yeah, we gotta change that I think I'll call you Apple, cause your ass is kinda fat How old are you '16' Well that's just right But you're 18 if anybody asks tonight I'm a teach you how to get this long paper right Catch a trick, suck his dick, break his ass for life Cause I love you, that's all you really need to know I'm 'bout to miss my hair appointment, girl I got to go She said, I always wanted to be a ho I always wanted to be a ho You just had to find the player that was right for you, Now you met the Ice baby, and your dreams came true 'Now what if I meet a trick that got long cash' That's when I call the crew with the black ski masks But right now we'll only worry 'bout the basic stroll Hooking up my Cadillac, and upping my gold A hundred for a full hit, 50 for a hand Throw in a blow job, they'll fuck off grands I may even put you where the real johns at Some call the strip club, I call the indoor track They got lap dancers, table dancers, mad back rooms And you can double up your profit if you take them home 'I wanna be the best' Well this game's the test G-string bikinis and silicone breasts Suckas break themselves just to sniff your nest And if you get tired, I got crystal meth 'I think I'm in love...' Baby doll it's on You were made for me baby, since the day you were born You just had to find the player that was right for you Now you met the Ice baby, and your dreams came true [Outro] Yeah baby, we gonna do a lot of beautiful things for each other You know what I'm saying We gonna get me a new car We gonna get me some better jewelry Some nicer rags, you know what I'm saying We gonna help each other out, you know what I'm saying We gonna get me a new pad, you know Maybe get me a Rolex We gonna do a lot of things for each other, it's gonna be beautiful Me and you I love you baby We gonna put a whole lot of money in my pocket That's what we gonna do. You are so cute in that dress That's right Damn, go on, get your ass out there and do something right quick for a player Yeah I love you, get your fucking ass out there I love you, get the fuck out.. aiite..

Fated

MATTHEW GOOD BAND "Audio Of Being"
There's a space man in my basement there's an IV keeping time beside my bed and a painting of Jesus wandering for a dart board you know he's seen you naked a million times I long to be dead and sleep with the fishes under the sea they can swim through my head and stop all the traffic jams stop all the traffic jams and there'll be no light tonight if I'm fated There's a cartoon killer in my livingroom cut you open like candy and pull out your little wound like tv dinners for the third world and amputee dancing girls you try but you fail cause you're bad at life and good in a vacuum I long to be dead and sleep with the fishes under the sea they can swim through my head and stop all the traffic jams stop all the traffic jams and there'll be no light tonight if I'm fated

DILATED PEOPLES "The Platform"
feat. Aceyalone Ay yes y'all [Iriscience] The only thing constant is change with that....its the shape of things to come Yo I'm the open-est emotions I'm a river in straight A crystal clean lake Yo the essence of skin The form of a luminescent bright light flourescent [Aceyalone]You got light? [Iriscience] Don't wait 'till it's dark to ask questions I been sparking in sections And blessing mics with my prescence Since many were pre-pubescent Puberty adolescent Perhaps you need a lesson in Addressing with respect an' Too many feel inadequate without their little weapon [Aceyalone] It's like I got the whole world against me Need to get intensely A head full of headaches And a hand full of sissies Them so flimsy so why there one MC There wasn't one before hasn't one since me A gangster of love I come from up above I give the mic a tug I give the world a hug I give skies a kiss I give suckers a kiss Some people like my old styles better than this but [Iriscience] Yo I'm Spacey like Kevin And some do knowledge of seven Praise Jesus and Jah Buddah Allah or just Heaven [Aceyalone] Yeah and some like it moderate Some like a lot of it Whichevery way I go we got something To get you move up out of it [Iriscience] Some will be statistics Some will be reverends Dimes become pennies like dimes become eleven [Aceyalone] To some we kind of thought of it As teaching the dumb Ace-One and Dilated The shape of things to come [Chorus][Iriscience] I catch rec and Tangle in circles with squares Triangles to test if indeed you're prepared This is the shape of things to come This is the shape of things to come [Chorus][Evidence] [Aceyalone] I wax 'em I tax 'em Here's Iriscience - ask him From Arkansas to Aspen The futuristic jazzmen I'm telepathic Moving through hella traffic CLICK ABOVE TO VISIT OUR SPONSORS I know my demographics See how this was crafted and drafted There's precision in the incision I'm not christian or Catholic or any other religion I'm just man With a steel in his hand I shoot the gift from blessed to spark where it land [Iriscience] And it landed in the sand Where the pyramids blaze And this is how the dictionary defines such a place A polyhedron with a polygonal base Median and common vertex Triangular face Who came in the home and Ripped the cats stole Stripped the limestone To line they fine home I cram to understand Their dirty deeds in song While we bringing you the shape of things to come [Chorus][Aceyalone] [Chorus][Evidence] [Iriscience] Aiyyo I center punch punchlines Shine when it's crunchtime I back to beatbox, rap battles at lunchtime I sketch a piece and fill it in with design Ooh no, Aceyalone Raw bright like sunshine Platform squad standing on the brink Yo I touch the world Got three but two blink Rakaa aka Iriscience lenscrafters And blend with hash the self defense master [Aceyalone] Yeah its too bad we control fire, wind I know that you bad you batted a thousands I remember who's the baddest with the apparatus tell me again Take ahold of your heart without penetrating the skin See I didn't invent it I just perfected it I never intended to really connect with it But once I got in it I redirected it Now I change the world and get respect with it and a check with it It ain't nothin' new under the sun Fool I ain't afraid of the size of your gun The flesh is weak plus they speak foul tongue Take the breath from their lungs as they swung And they hung and they sunk [Chorus][Iriscience, Aceyalone and Evidence] Babu scratches Ay yes y'all Y'all ready to bounce for us? It's that shit It's that LA shit
