Leave This Town

Original and similar lyrics
So you fancy a drink, just the one, To clear your head, it won't be long, It's a beautiful day to waste away, There's plenty of time for another one. Chorus You know you shouldn't do it But can't see no reason why, So you blow your mind yeah yeah ah ha. Make mine a short, I'm getting there But where is it i couldn't care There must be something I haven't tried Perhaps that bottle before my eyes. Chorus Through the haze the sun goes down It's getting late, let's hit the town Call some friends to paint it red Feed the animal in your head. Chorus They throw you out, you hit the night Go to a club, you feel all right You get a pill, just take half Then take the rest of it for a laugh. Chorus The rest is blank and that's the worst An empty head for an empty purse You had a laugh or so you think But in the morning you just stink. You know you shouldn't do it But can't see no reason why, So you blow your mid yeah yeah ah ha. So you fancy a drink, it's just the one To clear your head, it won't be long.

Look out, look out, look out, look out Look in, look in, look in Look out, look out, look out, look out Look in, look in, look in All I do is a constant reminder The future's here and it walks right behind you All I see is a constant illusion My head spins and my world's in confusion Look out, look out, look out, look out Look in, look in, look in Look out, look out, look out, look out Look in, look in, look in All I see is self-rearranging The moment's here but it's already changing Take one step and that's your direction You ain't sure, now, was that the intention?

I Just Don't Want Coffee

Caedmon's Call "Caedmon's Call"
Though I am small I've seen things far beyond these city walls The land is flat and it rolls for miles I don't know much I know I've many places yet to see I know I've been here for a while Wouldn't you know just when I thought I had this figured out I'm back at my first day at school Trying not to think too loud I raise my hand to scratch my head I've no ideas of what to do 'Cause something's changed today And what it is I just can't say And if I don't seem okay, well I'm okay (Chorus) So sue me, sue me, if I just don't want coffee tonight Back in this coffee house where we just met a week ago Now we've been friends since we were young But all our conversations are hitting walls we can't ignore We can hide but we can't run And I can't run from you Or what we've run into Now regardless what I choose, we both lose (repeat chorus) It must be getting late Where's my head Where is my head Where is my head I still hear you telling me what a big mistake I've made Funny that's what I've been telling you I can lead a horse to water You can even make him drink But you can't change his point of view Tonight as I was driving home I passed a coffee shop You know I wrestled with the truth And how I'd explain to you what you could never understand And how I'd keep my mind from you But that's the price I pay Your way is not my way Today's another day and it's okay (repeat chorus) I think I need some rest Rest my head, arrest my head Rest my head, arrest my head Rest my head, arrest my head -

With Me

DE LA SOUL "Art Official Intelligence-Mosa"
Intro/Chorus: {sung} Dance with me, come on dance - with me baby Dance with me, come on dance - with me baby Dance with me, come on dance - with me baby Dance with me, come on dance - with me baby (repeat 2X) [Dove] How you gon' tell me to mind my own biz when you lookin like somethin I need to know about? I used to go about it the wrong way, tuggin your arm when you'd pass But I see you got class besides all that Yeah I'm picky in my own way too While the rest of these fools is lookin to screw your brains out I bling'd(?) out don't(?) wanna stand froze Practicin my hello's, hey lady, how you doin Renewin these vows is like fifty steps beyond from here Shit I don't even know your name yet (word) Ain't sure what your character contains yet But damn lady, you could be my Valentine Cupid got his infrared on my chest clocked Let the rest flock, they just birds anyway I grow my confidence in words the Henny way - yeah, buy me a drink so we can sink into that thought path.. Chorus [Pos] Now you know you ain't right, eyein me up all night despite the fact some kid is runnin chitta-chat in your ear How the hell we get here, with me over here, and you over there when we can make, such an obvious pair? Why miss? Have you misread my shyness for conceit? I'm peepin how you move it to the pace of the beat Got my eyes on wide as they constantly collide with yours Your heavenly body rushin the tide to shore Your heavenly body rushin these guys to the floor to find pleasure in your double digit design, but these clowns look hurt And as a woman's ex-nigga I'm a woman ex-pert Understandin how the ovaries and all that shit work Extremely dreamy, my eyes you look surprised that I'm movin closer - don't be, I'm supposed to D.C. Are you for real or a tease? [Dove] Now let that drink set in sweet, we up close and personal Ain't nuttin dull about this, sharp like Swiss precision (Caught you watch-in) my every move from the door Teran escortin us to V.I.P., we live in D.C. Shoestring dress I wanna fuck and make your hair look a mess Suckin the straw huh? You know the head game First place chick girl I'm all about winnin too I want my trophy life-sized in a see through [Pos] This ain't your average, whippin your batterage drivin song that probably isn't your type So I type it long with that ink that won't budge or smudge off your memory; courtesy of SkyTel My mail, pop up like some bubbles found on VH-1 Also need the math to your color pH-1 Not the old man in the club who needs his dub to get rubbed but sound the buzzer, I'm comin to sub Chorus 1.25X

Steven

JAKE MILLER "The Road Less Traveled"
Yeah, look Let me tell you about a kid named Steven He's slowly running out of things to believe in Every couple of months his mom leaves him, for no good reason his step-dad beats him Not too many friends, only ever had a few of them, but recently they don't want anything to do with him Always eating lunch in the bathroom stall, he just wants to feel normal and be cool again, yeah Always feeling like the outcast, he's been going crazy ever since his dad passed He needs guidance and advice but instead he only has breakdowns and flashbacks of the car crash uh It's been getting harder everyday, if he was still around everything would be OK 'Cause his dad was always the light at the end of the tunnel, but now that same damn tunnel is looking dark and grey He keeps quiet in the back of the class and when the bell rings Steven hurries home fast scared to death the other kids will kick his ass on the long walk home 'Cause its happened in the past so He's getting used to the black eyes and fat lips but all he's got is a fake smile and cut wrists Wishin' he could walk right up to them and show them the scars and say look you're the reason that I've done this Maybe they would finally understand and go back to how it was before it all began But he's just a little different so they taunt him and they beat him Yeah it's all just fun and games, they don't give a damn, yeah His older brother ain't around, in and out of jail, hanging with the wrong crowd He's been doing coke, smoking weed, getting drunk all his life he's a shame no, he's not too proud Now his habits are rubbing off on his little bro yeah, but guess what? Little did he know that every time he did a line, every time he lit a joint, every time he took a shot he would set the mode, So Steven's sitting in his room getting high now Doors locked, music up, with his lights out He just takes another toke til his room fills with smoke 5-6-7 hours til he knocks out Now he started stealing pills from his mom 8-9-10 at a time and now they're gone and maybe for a moment all his problems seem to fade, but the high fades too after not too long and that's when it really sinks in and that's when it hits him that these god damn drugs won't fix him Curled up on the floor, can't take it anymore Now he's talking to God 'cause he's the only one that gets him On his knees, looking up, can't stop crying "God I know we haven't talked in a long time but this time I really need you. Please God help me, say something just give me a sign, because now I'm falling apart and I don't think that I can do it. Please God, give me the strength to pull through it. Tell me, Should I give up? I could end it all right now. I just don't know if I'm brave enough to do it. 'Cause there's gotta be a better way than suicide. Try to wait it out, give it time, you'll be fine. But it's been so long and I still haven't been able to get rid of all the thoughts that I feel inside. So sick, so angry, so mad and to top it off no one even knows that" That's when he stood up, wiped his tears, walked over to his desk and got a pen and a notepad He just couldn't see it getting any better So on a cold dark night in December, Steven knew exactly what he had to do But first he sat down and wrote a couple letters One to his step-dad, one to his mother, couple to the kids at school, one to his brother Bringing them the pain that they once brought him tear drops on the paper one after another Yeah, I hope that you all feel guilty. 'Cause I'm broken now and you can't heal me And now you're all an accomplice in murder each and every one of you has chipped in to kill me So the reason that I'm writing you this evening, is to say goodbye and to tell you that I'm leaving But don't hold your breath 'cause I ain't never coming back Sincerely yours, Steven

Head Over Heels

THE GO-GO'S "Return To The Valley Of The Go-Go's"
Head Over Heels (Caffey/Valentine) Been running so long I've nearly lost all track of time In every direction I couldn't see the warning signs I must be losin' it 'Cuz my mind plays tricks on me It looked so easy But you know looks sometimes deceive Been running so fast Right from the starting line No more connections I don't need any more advice One hand's just reaching out And one's just hangin' on It seems my weaknesses Just keep going strong CHORUS Head over heels Where should I go Can't stop myself Outta control Head over heels No time to think Looks like The whole world's out of sync Been running so hard When what I need is to unwind The voice of reason Is one I left so far behind I waited so long So long to play this part And just remembered That I'd forgotten about my heart CHORUS
