Mindless Child Of Motherhood

Original and similar lyrics
I've been traveling a long time, To be just where you are. In dreams I have seen you, But you are so very far. How long must I travel on, To be just where you are? How long must I travel on, To be just where you are? I was your friend, I was a fool, I feel for you, though we're far apart. I see your face, Lost without trace, I see your mind, just an empty space. Mindless child of motherhood, You have lost the thing that's good. Mindless child of motherhood, You have lost the thing that's good. I know that it's not fair, To bare a bastard son, But why do you hide there, When we could have shared a love? How long must I travel on, To be just where you are? How long must I travel on, To be just where you are? I was your friend, I was a fool, I feel for you, though we're far apart. I see your face, Lost without trace, I see your mind, just an empty space. Mindless child of motherhood, You have lost the thing that's good. Mindless child of motherhood, You have lost the thing that's good. To me.

Cringe

ALKALINE TRIO "Goddamnit"
Wide eyed Knee deep in surprise Just below your thighs the temperature drops 5 degrees Your stand-by flight has just arrived Tongue-tied bleeding from your eyes Even Christ himself would cringe at the sight of your scars While you're counting sheep I'll count my lucky stars You were the last good thing I ever saw I lost it all I lost it all Burned out on 2 hours of shut-eye Eyes glazed at the thought of the next 8 hours Headwind cold rain to wake me You were the last good thing I ever saw

Back Home Again

JOHN FOGERTY "The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again"
There's a storm across the valley, clouds are rollin' in The afternoon is heavy on your shoulders There's a truck out on the four lane a mile or more away The whinin' of his wheels just makes it colder. He's an hour away from ridin' on your prayers up in the sky And ten days on the road are barely gone There's a fire softly burnin', supper's on the stove But it's the light in your eyes that makes him warm. Hey, it's good to be back home again Sometimes this old farm feels like a long-lost friend Yes and hey, it's good to be back home again. There's all the news to tell him, how'd you spend your time What's the latest thing the neighbours say And your mother called last Friday, sunshine made her cry You felt the baby move just yesterday. Hey, it's good to be back home again Sometimes this old farm feels like a long-lost friend Yes and hey, it's good to be back home again. Oh, the time that I can lay this tired old body down Feel your fingers feather soft upon me The kisses that I live for, the love that lights my way The happiness that livin' with you brings me. It's the sweetest thing I know of, just spending time with you It's the little things that make a house a home Like a fire softly burnin', supper on the stove The light in your eyes that makes me warm. Hey, it's good to be back home again Sometimes this old farm feels like a long-lost friend Yes and hey, it's good to be back home again. Hey, it's good to be back home again, you know it is Sometimes this old farm feels like a long-lost friend Hey, its good to be back home again I said, hey, it's good to be back home again.

Gal That Got Away, The

FRANK SINATRA "Everything Happens To Me"
The night is bitter The stars have lost their glitter The winds grow colder Suddenly you're a lot older And all because of the gal that got away No more her eager call The writing is on the wall All those dreams you dreamed They have all gone astray The gal who won you She's run off and undone you That great beginning Has seen its final inning I don't know what happened It's all a crazy game No more - no more that all time thrill Because you have been put though the mill And never a new love Will ever be the same Good riddance good-bye Every trick of hers you are on to But fools will be fools And where's she gone? - Where has she gone? The road gets rougher It's lonelier and it's tougher With hope you burn up Tomorrow maybe she'll turn up There ain't no let up Live long night, night and day Ever since, (since) this world began There ain't nothin' sadder than A long lost loser Lookin' for his gal who got away Please come back Won't you come back

Him

LILY ALLEN "It's Not Me, It's You"
Would you please take me away from this place I cannot bear to see the look upon your faces And if there is some kind of god do you think he's pleased When he looks down on us I wonder what he sees Do you think he'd think the things we do are a waste of time Maybe he'd think we are getting on just fine Do you think he's skint or financially secure And come election time I wonder who he'd vote for Ever since he can remember people have died in his good name Long before that September Long before hijacking planes He's lost the will he can't decide He doesn't know who's right or wrong But there's one thing that he's sure of this has been going on too long Do you think he'd drive in his car without insurance Now is he interesting or do you think he'd bore us Do you think his favourite type of human is caucasian Do you reckon he's ever been done for tax evasion Do you think he's any good at remembering people's names Do you think he's ever taken smack or cocaine I don't imagine he's ever been suicidal His favourite band is Creedence Clearwater Revival Ever since he can remember people have died in his good name Long before that September Long before hijacking planes He's lost the will he can't decide He doesn't know who's right or wrong But there's one thing that he's sure of this has been going on too long Ever since he can remember people have died in his good name Long before that September Long before hijacking planes He's lost the will he can't decide He doesn't know who's right or wrong But there's one thing that he's sure of this has been going on too long

Driving Away

Rickie Lee Jones "The Evening Of My Best Day"
The man in the starry tie Led me talking backwards Across the waving chips I spoke fantastic, like a prophet Like a piece of blood Where no doors are And weary now i set upon the good year And the wrench Wrenching out of me every Ready of light That i might get it right And walk away Into the metro sunset The golden metro may And now across the plains Take your child The highway sign, banana trees, Windows parted and hoping See the flat faced delicatessen Sweeping up the afternoon Pick up little pieces of meetings And on your way Here is the donut shop Here is the early morning light Where i would drool in chlorine Yes here is the early early mornings i spent training And here is the highway Chasing 'j's' out on his empty skin Looking for license plates And liquor stores Over there is new mexico And down there is corpus You can find my mother and me wrapped up in a warm Scotch on the rocks The numbing ice of each others eyes Looking just like now For relief There is no direction but past Every thing else is passive But if you would seek me Seek me there In a field Or a gas station In my american mothers arms Before she is too medicated To remember How to say my name Say it gently, just once more For me mother With the sounds of trucks and distant trains With the gold sticks And the burnt skin of prayer Bathe me once again In hot oil Silence and long, long days Car keys and dash board lights Bears in the garbage That sweet honeycomb Of memory Don't weave the web too tight Don't catch me tonight Speak to me in cool lines The steering wheels turning Where ever we go Dinner approaches The fire light Of high beam and lipstick Laughing the red midwest Her curled curtains Wild and a strand of me stuck in her mouth Wet always an outsider To the cities i create The entire east comes upon me and i Reeling in stars Grip the wheel A good girl, really Just don't know how to stop This thing
