KIM CARNES lyrics - Sailin'

The Best Of You

Original and similar lyrics
(Kim Carnes/Eddie Reeves) Memories are the only things that time can't take away You read a book, you write a song, the time's been spent But in your mind the story still remains The song plays on Memories can get the best of you They can turn you inside out just when you least expect'em to And times when I'm alone, I think of things we've done And then I laugh right out loud to myself Sometimes I fool myself How could you possibly know How could you possibly see Yes and how could you possibly know That the best of you has got the best of me Good and bad take it all in stride But I'd be lying if I said I didn't you here beside me When it took so long to find you Now I just can't let you go, can't let you go How could you possibly know How could you possibly see Yes and how could you possibly know That the best of you has got the best of me

Skip Town

AESOP ROCK "Float"
On the train Watchin' the rainbows (thank you windows) I mean, it's all the same to some But that cityscape makes me numb Walkin' the wire between firewater and water - I'll take the tap Still managed to end up thirsty the day the nursery collapsed In my hand I hold the plumage of a buzzard Somethin' for circlin' nutrition (seems barbaric) I may have just saved your children There's an inborn tendancy tellin' me to grip that sickle The pirate tyrant breathes, feed on your precious little pixels I interviewed the sun, he said the future's lookin' bright I interviewed the rain, he claimed the sun's truly an asshole I'was suposed to interview the snow today but of course he flaked So I let my frigid demeanor teeter and take his vacant place Wheat and beat sprout from the same litter Yet amazingly crafted by seperate scissors I stalk the morbid beaten past splashin' in the cretin blizzard (?) Half my time is herded toward little lost causes Half my time is spent pluggin' these leaky faucets An' I'm here to pose inquiries I'm here to draw a fork in the road and call it the diary of common sheep aspiring Little Billy star lit up the block got the right premise But can't thread the needle without consultin'apprentice present. I don't really know you (I don't) And I dont' really care (I don't) Can't judge a man's dignity by the wattage in his stare Maybe that team's be that vagabond you love to kill (?) But I really ain't got time for the motherfucken guilt. Chorus: I'm gone and I best believe I'm leavin' Pack up my belongings then it's off into the evening Now I haven't exactly been embraced by the populace Set sail upon the seven deadly seas of the annonamous I'm gone, and I best believe I'm leavin' Pack up my belongings then it's off into the evening An' I'm diggin' a tunnel to where the sun'l never shine I've got my book I got my dream I've got myself an' I'll be fine (My time) is the day before the day the earth stood still (My time) is the day before the soldiers fired at will (My time) is the day before the hunter made his kill My time to find a mile before the valley meets the hill I'm an archer Partnered with a farmer's board of appetites (?) Sweetalkin' a rasping down to a mere flashing of badges Prototypic landscape staged every step of my well-oiled collective workhorse with prose and attention festive. Wait. What about the captivator? I am the product of skeleton dancers voice crooked scattered amidst blue fields of firey bliss tricks (?) Where disease applicant activist rattlers, fascinate brave child Where expentant slave smiles at the stick in the painted living God, if I could offer maintenance to fantasies I would I'd place the button in the city square for everyone to push You see my mission's responsibilties range across the board Until I'd rather be a pen than a sword I swim a cold lake, make no mistake, I was not ready Your legendly outta shape, made the company look messy (?) (Sorry, well sorry) Honestly take it or leave it Just let me know so I ain't beggin' forgiveness thoughout the evening. Basic locomotive with a whistle and caboose Tryin'a pull my cargo 'cross the map without a boost Brasher than more ways in ten years sturdy bird construction (?) Help the smokestacks puff until the morn, dream torn Chorus: I'm gone, and I best believe I'm leavin' Packed up my belongings then it's off into the evening I've knocked upon every little door that comes about I'll sweep ya porch if you can spare a couple of breadcrumbs and a couch. I'm gone, and I best believe I'm leavin' Pack up my belongings then it's off into the evening This turning in my sleep is getting old and older still I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, I think I will.

Last Song I Write About You

Glasseater
From day one, something was wrong I thought I could see you through it Thought you would change, but i was wrong and now i stand here screaming Too many papers wasted on someone who never gave a damn I've got better things to do than waste these words on you I have better things to say Too much time i've spent on you this is the last song i write about you A couple songs, so what? Cause what has been gained? this is that last song i write about you time to move on i've held your hand for far too long now beating all these thoughts of you to death tonight Dead

The Shower Scene

The Brand New Heavies
It's funny how your worst enemies always seem to turn out to be all of your best friend's best friends But I folded I told These aren't things I've saved to sing you but I folded I told So draw or throw and I will explode It's time for you to choose the bullet or the chapstick Or you are far too cute or whatever he said Every time I hear it I am wishing I was great I wished her past tense my best friend But then I folded and I told These aren't things I say to save me But I folded I told I hope she's caught in the explosion It's time for you to choose the bullet or the chapstick Or you are far too cute or whatever he said It's time for you to choose the bullet or the chapstick This is me in his room Red Gold I told We don't play fair Red Gold I told We never stand too close So I update this almost every single day for you I begin to hate you for your face and not just the things you go So go tell him why my wrist is sore from pulling out your insides all night Nothing that you do is new to anything or anyone but you

House Of Cards

JANET DEVLIN "Running With Scissors"
Dear love, how've you been? Do you still play our records On your record machine? "Born to die." "Nevermind." Dear friends, I found the key To the box beneath your bed where we hid everything. Funny how, don't need it now. This polaroid is fading out. Like a house of cards, We came crashing down And the King of Hearts' heart was never found Maybe ten years time, you won't know my name, But this is still a love song all the same. Hey you, how's this end? I know it's kinda selfish but I need a friend Little lies, can't survive. Hey boy, where'd you go? Has your heart got warmer now your beds got cold Now I know, you're alone. Our favourite song is fading out. Like a house of cards, We came crashing down And the King of Hearts' heart was never found-ound-ound Maybe ten years time, you won't know my name, But this is still a love song, this is still a love song. Maybe ten years time, you won't know my name, But this is still a love song all the same. They say all good things, They must come to an end, They say all good things, They must come to an end, They say all good things, They must come to an end, All good things must end.

It was early I woke up Still had a joint, so I puffed Shouldn't of, coz it got me stoned and my mum just moaned 'Simon its time to get a job, you're 20 years old and you're living like a slob' but there's so many things i wanna do ma' i need money and I wanna get a new car 'Simon what do you mean?'
