Kathy Mattea lyrics

That's The Deal

Original and similar lyrics
There was a gentleman I knew A stroke held his wife fast asleep And his whole life had come down to The vigil he would daily keep I asked would he rather be free ? And this is how he answered me That's the deal, that's the bargain that you make That's the vow that two hearts take That if better turns to worse you will abide That's the deal, if it were not for God's grace I might be there in her place and she'd be right by my side That's the deal In my mind I still hear him talk I keep those words like souvenirs Brought from a place where couples walk Arm in arm through this veil of tears I pray someday for my own sake I find the heart I'll never break That's the deal, that's the bargain that you make That's the vow that two hearts take That if better turns to worse you will abide That's the deal, if it were not for God's grace I might be there in her place and she'd be right by my side That's the deal That's the deal That's the deal.

Same Cry

JIN "The Rest Is History"
We May Look Different But We See The Same Sky We may see different But we cry the same cry To wake up daily, And sleep better nights, Thats what we all wish for to seek a better life, right? It's unfortunate, when tragedys strike, But the truth is reality bites, June 4th 89, a day residents fear Now known as The Massacre At Tiananmen Square The day I turned seven they were mourning and grieving Thousands of innocents die for what they believed in Come with nothing but heart and a point to prove Stood infront of tanks and refused to move What Would You Do? Run or stand still whens your lifes on the line To test a mans will Seeking change and they found but in death Strangers yet they were my blood and flesh This happened in China, But you ain't gotta be asian to relate To the struggle, pain and hard aches [Chorus:] You'll never know, You'll never get it, There is no choice, We can't forget it We look up We see the same sky We look up We cry the very same cry See, I'm a grown man It hurts when I turn on the news And see thats going on in my homeland This SARS epidemic, could've been lives Could've stand for Should Asians Really Survive They'll try anything to break your family apart Politics could break down the manliest heart Can the child within my heart rise above If theres a billion of us I shouldn't have to look for love Overpopulation, but damn just to meet the needs Its illegal to have more than one seed How can you dictate birth regardless the women And the parents they make the hardest decisions Sons keep their family names so thats not an option Imagine having to put your daughter up for adoption And even though its beyond your control Keep your head up heres a sond for your soul [Chorus] If you don't know where you came from You can't get the way your trying to go Theres ain't denying so, its true I got some big shoes to fill But If I don't lead the movement, then who will Stuck between a rock and a hard place Thinking about the refugees that went to see god's place 16,000 miles across the ocean tides Some died, some got lucky and survived I wouldn't call it luck, they reached their destination Modern day slavery without the plantation Them sneakers on your feet cost $100 a pop My peoples making 15 cents a day in sweatshops To make them kicks, so you can look good. Think we open restaurants cause we cook good? Hell No, we ain't got no choice I gotta speak up, without me my people have no voice [Chorus x2]

KILLER MIKE "R.A.P. Music"
[Verse 1:] You are witnessing elegance in the form of a black elephant Smoking white rhino on terraces Will I die slain like my king by a terrorist? Will my woman be Coretta, take my name and cherish it? Or will she Jackie O, drop the Kennedy, remarry it? My sister say it's necessary on some Cleopatra shit My grandmama said nope, never, that it's sacrilege Tend to agree because the thought is so disparaging The Lord give a load, you got to carry it like Mary did That's why I'm giving honor to all these baby mommas It takes a woman's womb to make a Christ or Dalai Lama The world might take that child, turn that child into a monster The Lord'll take a monster and fashion him a saint I present you Malcolm X for those who saying that He can't Saying that He won't, when I know He will You usually don't know it's you until you getting killed For real [Hook: Scar] Dear Lord, have mercy On your once forgotten life like it's a game We love I won't be forced to shut up when I don't feel the same Cause people gonna lie Some people gonna steal You gotta be careful not to shit where you live Them people might try to have you killed Lord have mercy, life is such a battlefield For real [Verse 2: Killer Mike] I ain't never gave a fuck I never did and never will Live my life on press appeal Keep it true, keep it real Better said, I keep it trill And no matter who don't like it, homie That's just how it is Naked truth like the stripper that's in front of me And I keep a blunt and a 5-11 gun on me Why? Cause I'm country-bred Actually, I'm south-er-ern Something like my brethren The legendary Andre 3K, Cee Lo, Goodie, and some other men You should pay some homage, it's an honor this This is not a fiction that is sold by conglomerates This is Soul of Black Folks mixed with Donald Goines shit Better said rob a bet, esoteric I could get This is John Gotti painting pictures like Dali This is Basquiat with a passion like Pac In a body like Biggie, telling stories like Ricky If a rapper was to spar, please tell him better kick it You with me? [Hook] [Outro: Killer Mike] I don't trust the church or the government Democrat, Republican Pope or a bishop or them other men And I believe God has sustained you with rap So I pick a burning bush, put it in a Swisher wrap And they can't kill a G, I seen how I die I'm only going once, a coward dies a thousand times I'm a spit this ghetto gospel over all these gutter songs I'm gone

Heavy Hangs The Albatross

ALESANA "The Emptiness"
I've made up my mind and I will be leaving. Leaving this cruel, dark world For the soulless to share. But first... Women will shriek and watch their husbands bleed. Children will cry (children will cry) And watch their mothers die. Because tonight (because tonight) Tonight we all go to hell! Why? I have to let go of what happened to my love. I am taking out on everyone else All the problems I've brought on myself. When I made your heart melt. My belle, we soon will meet again. There's nothing left for me to lose Except confusion. I'm finished trying to tell myself this will go away. There's no one left to talk me down. My feet are slipping... One day oh I hope my name doesn't bring back memories. Of the day that I left her. Goodbye, so long. My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after. For better, or even for worse, Remember me forever... Now the only question left is how To take you all down with me. The coroner will have his hands full tonight. That is if he is not among the dead. Dead will choke the streets with such vulgarity that grown men will weep. And then you will find the end is drawing night. There's nothing left for me to lose Except confusion. I'm finished trying to tell myself this will go away. There's no one left to talk me down. My feet are slipping... One day oh I hope my name doesn't bring back memories. Of the day that I left her. Goodbye, so long. My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after. For better, or even for worse, Remember me... The dizziness stuns me, Would someone please distract me? Can I really get through this? Can I really betray myself? For better, for worse, remember forever (There's sweat on my hands and a knife at my throat.) The dizziness stuns me, Would someone please distract me? (And as the blade bites my skin Annabel appears...) Can I really get through this? Can I really betray myself? For better, for worse, remember forever (For better, or for worse, remember me forever) One day oh I hope my name doesn't bring back memories. Of the day that I left her. Goodbye, so long. My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after. For better, or even for worse, Remember me forever

Airport Song

GUSTER "Goldfly"
Glad you made it Welcome to the farm Who's your daddy I'm your daddy now I'm here seeking only what i need In your mind is where ill plant my seed It's for sure Let me keep you in this place You'll be better off this way I will keep you warm and safe You'll be better off this way You learn to love the price you pay Trust me dear you're better off this way Put to bed the son and sister moon Ill be hiding in your dirty room Ill go there seeking only what I need La ti da we'll stay there till we bleed It's for sure Let me keep you in this place You'll be better off this way I will keep you warm and safe You'll be better off this way I will not wake you from your sleep Leave you wandering counting sheep No more sad and sunshine days Trust me dear you're better off this way You'll be selling books at the airport

The Bed Song

AMANDA PALMER "Theatre Is Evil"
Exhibit A We are friends in a sleeping bag splitting the heat We have one filthy pillow to share and your lips are in my hair Someone upstairs has a rat that we laughed at And people are drinking And singing Van Halen and Slayer on a ukulele tear Exhibit B Well, we found an apartment It’s not much to look at A futon on a floor Torn-off desktop for a door All the decor's made of milk crates and duct tape And if we have sex They can hear us through the floor But we don’t do that anymore And I lay there wondering, what is the matter? Is this a matter of worse or of better? You took the blanket, so I took the bedsheet But I would have held you if you'd only Let me Exhibit C Look how quaint And how quiet and private Our paychecks have bought us a condo in town It's the nicest flat around You picked a mattress and had it delivered And I walked upstairs And the sight of it made my heart pound And I wrapped my arms around me And I stood there wondering, what is the matter? Is this a matter of worse or of better? You walked right past me and straightened the covers But I would still love you if you wanted a lover And you said All the money in the world Won't buy a bed so big and wide To guarantee that you won't accidentally touch me In the night Exhibit D Now we're both mostly paralyzed Don't know how long we've been lying here in fear Too afraid to even feel I find my glasses and you turn the light out Roll off on your side Like you've rolled away for years Holding back those king-size tears And I still don't ask you, what is the matter? Is this a matter of worse or of better? You take the heart failure I'll take the cancer I've long stopped wondering why you don't answer Exhibit E You can certainly see how fulfilling a life From the cost and size of stone of our final resting home We got some nice ones right under a cherry tree You and me lying the only way we know Side by side and still and cold And I finally ask you, what was the matter? Was it a matter of worse or of better? You stretch your arms out and finally face me You say I would have told you If you'd only asked me If you'd only asked me If you'd only asked me
