Laura Nyro lyrics - Christmas And The Beads Of Sweat

When I Was A Freeport And You Were The Main Drag

Original and similar lyrics
Vanessa's Father. He liked to be alone creating works of art which he painted in a cottage made of stone one day I crept inside and I was unaware of what I was going to find well the pictures opened up my mind I saw sculptures of young lovers intertwined. And on their bodies he had signed his name and so I left that place w/ a different look upon my face. When I was 15 and he a certain charm the way he smiled at me and the way he gently touched my arm. And somehow we would always be alone When it was time to take me home and so we'd speed through the country side In his convertable we'd ride. Vanessa's Father was driving me home at night, and I never said word oh but somehow we just got here. Her father was driving me home at night oh when I think back to then I would count the days til I could go there again. oh no oh no oh no Another weekend. Strange thoughts inside of me. Is it vanessa whom, I am really going there to see I'd smoke a ciggerette, I thought so secretly but the door it gently opened and he stood there smiling down at me then he pushed me backwards against the wall I looked up cause he's so tall and then he stared into my eyes and kissed me so hard I cried. Vanessa's father was sleeping w/ me at night and I never said a word but somehow we just got here her father was sleeping w/ me at night when I think back then, I would count the days I could see him again. oh no oh no oh no the shaft of lite would fall against my skin that would seem sensual to him but I'm too young to use these qualities you bet I must be evil I must be tainted He'd breath against the girl he's painted a thousand times I give up and put out to him now this is present time, look back on history oh and it seems so clear everything has been planned out for me My husband smiles at me sends love for me to see I can't regret my past cause Vanessa's Father is married to me.

Goin' Back

DUSTY SPRINGFIELD "Very Best Of Dusty Springfield"
(Gerry Goffin Carole King) I think I'm goin' back To the things I learned so well In my youth I think I'm returning to Those days When I was young enough To know the truth Now there are no games To only pass the time No more colouring books No Christmas bells to chime But thinking young And growing older Is no sin And I can play The game of life to win I can recall the time When I wasn't ashamed To reach out to a friend And now I think I've got A lot more than A skipping rope to lend Now there's more to do Than watch my sailboat glide And everyday can be My magic carpet ride And I can play hide and seek with my fears And live my days instead of counting my years Let everyone debate the true reality I'd rather see the world the way it used to be A little bit of freedom's All we lack So catch me if you can I'm goin' back

Night Hunting Time

SANTANA "Viva Santana!"
Night Hunting Time (Music/ Lyrics: Paul Brady) Drunk all the whiskey But I still can't get no rest Brain trapped on a roller coaster Got a pain in my chest Cold water on my eyeballs Send a shiver up my spine Hit the street in the wee wee hours This is the night hunting time CHORUS: Don't know what I'm doing here Don't know what I'm doing here Got to get my senses clear Stumble in off the footpath Heard the sounds from below Get accustomed to the darkness Got to take it real slow Sweat streamin' down my cheekbones Smoke stingin' my eyes Walls drippin' like the jungle But this ain't no paradise CHORUS Stumble up to the counter Catch the tension in the air Black Sabbath drive a young boy crazy This ain't no frivolous affair Young girl sipping Pernod Budy hunger in her glance No stoppin' when it comes to doin' The Heavy Metal Romance CHORUS

Ambulance Song

Cop Shoot Cop
When it's 4:30 in the morning And the vacuum sucks you in The tell tale trace of guilt upon your face The sidewalk feels just like your skin When your heart is full of winter And your days become like living in a lie And the clouds outside your bedroom windowpane Resemble crippled children limping slowly 'cross the sky When you grasp at straws like forgotten songs And your memory's short but the days are too long Every dream that you bought seems to slip right through your hands Well, love has got disorders And work has got demands Don't say a word Don't make a sound Just might be going down And when the sun is pounding on the pavement And the streets are dripping sex And murder gets to sounding like a kind of inner peace And everybody wants to know what's going to happen next Well, I won't give away the end my little troubadour Though I've been here before and I can't bear to watch the rest But don't you blink Don't close your eyes or it will pass you by The weight of history is hanging on your chest Don't say a word Don't make a sound Just might be going down Well, your problem's sticking with you Just like flies up on a strip you crawl inside your head But it ain't worth the trip You rearrange the furniture But it always looks the same Christ on a crutch [too late, too much] call it a day Don't say a word Don't make a sound Just might be going down Could be you're going down...

Life After Death

KJ-52 "Behind The Musik"
I rolled out of bed as the alarm started going off rubbed my head with my arm it was the crack of dawn I'm late for work and I really just hate my job I kissed my wife goodbye then I walked across the lawn Got the car out of the driveway and I'm riding on the road past the mall past the highway I'm flying on But it slows to a crawl because some guy was just driving wrong And I'm getting mad because I wonder why it's going on Get out of the way I just scream as I'm driving on I hate my day and this way that it's starting off I change lanes and I thought I was pulling on to The main lane but just then I saw this green honda It straight came next thing it was the window shattered Felt a great pain my body being bruised and battered It all changed went black and I knew I'd had it I coughed blood I breathed my last breath that was it Chorus: What ya gonna do when ya when there's no time left What ya gonna do when you take the last step? What ya gonna do when ya breathe your last breath Out ya chest and ya find out there's life after death? Next thing I know everything it just gets real quiet. I open my eyes to my suprise now it's real silent I realize I've died now it's my judgement I'm standing before the Most Hight now and all of sudden He said to me why should I let you into my heaven? I told God well really I'm a good person He showed my life and all the times now that I was sinning Every line to every curse to every bad decision From every lie to every word there was nothing hidden He showed how Christ died and with my life that I'd killed him He showed time after time how I'd reject him I never cared about the sacrifice God had given I never cared about my life or the way that I'd lived it. And now I've died and it's too late to be forgiven Guilty of my crime I'm sentenced to eternal prison It's dark I'm alone I feel my flesh burning Chorus I got out of bed as the alarm started going off Scratched my head and then I yawned it was the crack of dawn I'm praying and I'm thanking God I got my job I kissed my wife goodbye then I walked across the lawn Got in the car out of the driveway and I'm riding on The road by mall past the highway that I'm driving on It slows to crawl because some guy was driving wrong But I'm not mad I just wonder why it's just going on I use the time to pray for my family now and for my mom I'm thanking God for the way my day is strarting off I change lanes and I thought I was pulling on to The main lane but doesn't that guy see my green honda He straight came next thing it was the window shattered Felt a great pain my body being bruised and battered It all changed went black and then I knew I'd had it I coughed blood I breathed my last breath that was it Chorus

We're Going Out Tonight

Frenzal Rhomb
Twenty past four and we're feeling kind of bored 'cause there's nothing to record and we're poor There's nothing on TV, how can that be? Not even bullshit I don't want to see Spent all day in bed, throbbing in my head, my legs are made of lead feeling dead, there must be something to do to loose this mood I looked in the kitchen, there's not any food Something must be done, I'm craving some fun Put on my favourite band, yeah we need to make a plan Well I really hope we can 'cause the situation can't be much worse today, nothing's OK If I worked I probably wouldn't get paid We start to fight Then we decided that We're going out tonight Walk to the shop, CDs I can hock and that suck 'cause they never give you much but I don't give a damn we're sticking to the plan we need to buy some beer now the hour is getting near to the time that we know we've really got to go, we're sitting in the park and it's getting pretty dark We have a sup now things are looking up We're going out tonight Now the time has come, we're going to have some fun Now it's understood the night is looking good Let's go out and find someone to shout we'll get to the pub and there's going to be no doubt that There'll be some trouble there, broken glasses and stupid hair We'll be without a care all night We're going out tonight
