Almost And Nearly

Original and similar lyrics
Just a small town boy in a poppy field. Far from his home and his mother's milk. Chasing the moon, out of his head, into the night, given up for dead. Sleepless boy on a bed of tears. All wrapped up in his momma's fears. Crawling away, calling her name. Into the vein of the boy who's never found, on the road to Shangri-La. (chorus) The boy who's never found Shangri-La The boy who's never found.. Sweet temptation in a silver spoon Cross that path to a different room Enter the door, open your mind, Try for the best, don't know what you'll find. Darkness hangs on athreat to kill Small town man couldn't get his appeal Track down, find out sit tight, Ask how much they'll miss the boy who's never found, On the road to Shangri-La (Chorus) (Instrumental Break) (Chorus, followed by killer climax.)

Dream Killing Town

JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP "Chestnut Street Incident"
Pre-war matador save your broken bones Golden rule, he's such a fool in the streets alone Slow burn, taciturn nothing left to say Column five, sympathize it's easier that way (1st chorus) Just want to be a big boy pushin' some Jim-jims around but it's hard to be a dreamer in a dream killing town Hard to be a dreamer in a dream killing town Good as dead, Sally said I fear what she knows Money spent, for reconnaissance and blood's upon her clothes Child's toy, soldier boy playing with his gun Uptown, missile clown living on the run (2nd chorus) He just want to be a big boy growing up too soon Show you his gun flash his knife in the sun and dance to a rock and roll tune (bridge) Once tried, twice denied Sally said she knew Full sized polarized is what she's looking through Switch blade, promenade leather jacket war Clichà , don't runaway Slipping out the back door All night parasite wake me up at noon Copped himself an attitude down at the Red Dog Saloon Quick laid, masquerade gets the young boy up tight Low rent, Jack-a-Lent says he's gonna be all right

Hollywood Town

Manfred Mann "Best Of Manfred Mann's Earth B"
Down, down in Hollywood town, The lost and found come to find their way, Walking outside, feelings they hide, Putting their pride through well known places, Stepping on stars and shining on cars, Passing by, their heads are high, But their hearts are low down, Dragging as they go, Reaching out to those other faces. Down, down in Hollywood town, The good time sounds are heard all day, But the night time's coming, you're on your own, Looking for a place someone to share with, Waiting in queues to hear the blues, To find a way from the emptiness, To be found inside of those who try, To climb to the image of the TV good guy. Stranger I know you, We learned to walk together, Lovers, wondering whether we really are. I'd like to show you images of sister brother Standing off from one another but not very far. Down, down in Hollywood town, The lost and found come to find their way, Walking outside, feelings they hide, Putting their pride through well known places, Stepping on stars and shining on cars, Passing by, their heads are high, But their hearts are low down, Dragging as they go, Reaching out to those other faces. Down, down in Hollywood town, The good time sounds are heard all day, But the night time's coming, you're on your own, Looking for a place someone to share with, Waiting in queues to hear the blues, To find a way from the emptiness, To be found inside of those who try, To climb to the image of the TV good guy. Down, down in Hollywood town, The lost and found come to find their way, Walking outside, feelings they hide, Putting their pride through well known places, Stepping on stars and shining on cars, Passing by, their heads are high...

Awaiting The End

Jungle Rot
Mississippi moonshine's got me doubled over laughing in pain back at the Chevron the chicken wings made you feel just the same That bucket of bayou that licked you like a 5 pound block of salt I through it to the puppy that was yappin' on the hot asphalt The wisest word I ever heard was written on that bathroom wall in the mississippi river greasy spoon in southern Arkansas skimming 'cross the scrawl of the underground elite retorts I see a beacon to the traveler paraphrased sweet and short CHORUS A word to the wise a breath to the philosopher a hand to the devil a gift to the masses whatever you do don?t whatever you do don?t whatever you do don't take my advice Mister blister burning on the fumes of a day hard earned a bullet through the blue highways 'till the whole damn world is turned we're driving and we're driving until driving it don't feel real but it's so easy all you do is get some sleep behind the wheel Take a second to reflect on a peculiarity every stop we've made has shared a certain similarity there are juices and there's candies and there's sodas of all brand names but the message on the walls from town to town has been the same CHORUS Permanent marker with a fat tip scratch off the paint with a dime grease up the mirror with some lipstick a revolution is not a crime Finally before my eyes there it was for me to see at a truck stop in the lonely hills of eastern Tennessee I'd tell you how I felt if I could but I just can't When I happened on that bathroom with a fresh coat of paint CHORUS ...

Driving In The Rain

John Wesley Harding "The Name Above The Title"
With all your vice and volume the whole of last week The plastic pretenders to paradise speak Of your fictions of triumph and legends of pain The sense that you'd left you'd be back once again There's a glint in your eyes and the sky starts to laugh It's two to one you never did things by half And I'm out on the rooftops yelling your name Cos without you this town will be too much the same You went driving in the rain I'll never see you again There's nothing in the air left to compare To all of your passion and genius pain You went driving in the rain I'll never see you again There was talk of an illness that came by surprise The papers did penance, the whole town took sides Oh, but it was your dancing and mischeivous mind And then we were shot of you, but no-one's that blind And there's flowers have bloomed down the side of your street Where you and your demons did openly meet And I hope it's wide open where you've got to There's closed minds in this town that couldn't accept you (Chorus) They're making excuses, the reasons the facts They're reasoning how long you'll take to come back But there's guilt in their prayers, maybe shame in their pride They know it was no fault of yours down inside They steps can't be retraced cos tracks disappear And there'd be no welcome for you back here Because you were the worst side of everyone's soul They had to get rid or face up to the cold (Chorus)

Blessed

NELLY
I may never climb a mountain So I can see the world from there I may never ride the waves And taste the salty ocean air Or build a bridge That would last a hundred years But no matter where the road leads One thing is always clear I am blessed I am blessed From when I rise up in the morning Til I lay my head to rest I feel You near me You soothe me when I'm weary Oh Lord, for all the worst and all the best I am blessed All along the road less traveled I have crawled and I have run I have wandered through the wind and rain Until I found the sun The watching eyes ask me why I walk this narrow way I will gladly give the reason For the hope I have today repeat chorus You've given me joy You've given me love You give me strength When I want to give up You came from heaven To rescue my soul This is the reason I know, I know repeat chorus
