Linda Eder lyrics

I Am What I Am

Original and similar lyrics
I am what i am i am my own special creation so come take a look give me the hook or the ovation It's my world that i want to have a little pride in my world and it's not a place i have to hide in Life's not worth a damn til you can say Hey, World! I am what i am! I am what i am i dont want praise i dont want pitty I bang my own drum some think its noise i think its pretty And so what if i love is sparkle and each spangle why not try to see things from a different angle? Your life is a sham til you can shout out loud, I am what i am! I am what i am and what i am needs no excuses i deal my own deck sometimes the ace sometimes the dueces Theres one life! and theres no return and no deposit one life! so its time to open up ur closet! Life's not worth a damn til you can say Hey, World! I am what i am!

You Know My Name

ANTHONY EVANS "Even More"
There been many times when I couldn't see What you had in store for me and There been many time when I didn't know Which way or where to go Times I walked around head hanging down Full of insecurity Wanting to find out what this life's about But you told me to wait and see cause [Chorus:] You hold the stars in place Order time and space And yet you know my name You hold me in your hand help me understand Your love will never change Cause you know my name I've wondered why every time I try I just seem to loose my way Nothing's making sense and at my own expense It's a heavy price to pay But your always there taking all my cares So ready to be my friend Every where I go I know There's no place you haven't been [Chorus] As I walk this road I'm not alone your always beside me my life you own my fear is gone cause now I believe You know my name your love never changes It's always the same [repeat] [Chorus 2X]

This Is My Life

KING LIL G "Blue Devil 2"
[Verse 1:] I was the kid that didn't get shit for Christmas My moms didn't care about goodnight kisses Fuck it At least I got hugs from my sister Never let me down I got love for my sister In the hood it got cold in the winter She put me on a jacket Everytime when I shivered I didn't like superman I idolized drug dealers Jump me in the neighborhood That's how I got a gun quicker I was only twelve Homies in & out of jail I needed money So I went & bought my first scale That's when I learned how to bust raps I told stories about my gang And how I started selling dub sacks Hood muthafuckas love that When the enemies came through Better believe I always bust back I want the finer things in life Jewels around my son's neck A model for a wife [Chorus:] There's a time & a place For every little thing I'ma grind my way up To get those big things Yes I see it My name is shining light Let me shine for all the fallen Wrap arms around them Just let me get to where I'm goin' Cause this is - this is my life Cause its my life My right - my mind [Verse 2 - Kiki Smooth:] Wu-tang hustle Chasing that cream As a young buck On my bicycle moving thangs Ditching school Trying to get paid Had a corner stand And didn't sell lemonade Step-pops in the kitchen Bagging up them drugs Me & my little bro Soaking game like a sponge Eyes on the prize Make my dream a reality Love & happiness Puffing on some al green Sitting on the curb Thinking about my master plan Gather up the soldiers Invade the rap game Voice of the people The vato got heart I spit that fire Illuminate the dark Serving in the hood Fiends know my nickname Mister go get it I ain't tryin' to fucken wait Here to be the greatest Top of the mountain My debut is coming The days are being counted [Chorus] [Verse 3:] Trust nobody Keep your trust me dog You never should Them boys will treat you like When death row belonged to suge Cause if the deal goes bad Black hoodie on Here we come to peel yo' cap In l.a We hit a spanish club called rodeo I came to hear my homeboy weasel's song From los canelos Corona in my hand Listening to his corridos I wanna do what How scrappy did up on cerritos [Verse 4 - Kiki Smooth:] Living that fast life No time for pumping breaks Heard it through the grape vine Kiki bout to elevate Kick in the door Like biggie to the smalls Smooth don't care If he's big or small Gangsta in the mirror Man of the hour Dope man flow Got ya face looking sour Mama always told me There'd be days like this I was born in the ghetto Can't worse-er than this [Chorus]

Sleep

JOHN FRUSCIANTE "Enclosure"
Deep asleep Need some waking up Time can't see what he does to us Shadows fall asleep Thank you, thank you Mind and body breathe Thanks Bastard son is in my eyes It takes wholes of lives to see things right I'm the opening of tides There is open and there's open from the other side Intertwined one in another goes Reassigned souls in flattened time Sad as we are blind I love you, I love you As ifs actual The pains flows through Swelling space inside a window Something's there when "God" and "oh" share height or rate In the old Encino term There is one who separates, in between and low as dirt Living scene It's what goes up and down Along a street inner vision only sees Ahh place me there I'm with you, I'm with you Life takes me anywhere The blues we share And duration builds its climb You can count on me to darken light In the fields of flowers burned There is one down below, straight beneath who never learns In a need you peel the self from the bones I say Irritate til you're not needed anymore It's war Living things have a meaning all their own Breathing sings to the soul like Marian Anderson

Just In Time

JASON LANCASTER "As You Are"
And please bring me down from this awful suspense And tell me about everything that I've missed Cause I'm wasting time every second not kissed By this girl that I've found who keeps hope on her lips And I believe the world keeps its heart on her sleeve I'd love to tell her things but my tongue catches me Then I toss around ideas that maybe someday she'll let me Be the chest that she rests on when she's done walking in her sleep Because I would not let go and there are some things I just know Like I will lift you up and baby I will build you up Cause I could never try enough To show you I can be the love We're not hiding from this time And if it all falls down Just let me be here, let my arms surround And let me say how I'm so sure I've found A place for you to wear your crown A place where our names rhyme And it is all because you found me just in time So please don't change a thing for me you love about yourself And say you'll let me hold the things you don't Cause I've been here and waiting on some things to change for far too long And I hope that you'll just know That I will lift you up and baby I will build you up Because I could never try enough To show you I can be the love We're not hiding from this time And if it all falls down Just let me be here, let my arms surround And let me say how I'm so sure I've found A place for you to wear your crown A place where our names rhyme And it is all because you found me just in All because you found me just in All because you found me just in time

Can't Have It All

JAY BRANNAN "Goddamned"
Applying moisturizer in the microwave window For the tenth time, he should've called me an hour ago Would he be here with flowers if I lived in Arizona? They say there's no love left in the big cities, it's kinda true I guess you'll find me coming soon to a small town near you I'll sell my guitar so I can by myself a tractor Fuck this, this can't be my life I moisturized ten times tonight Why can't I sit down and write, Bring this question to light? [CHORUS:] Do you want a lover, or do you want a life? One hand or the other, the butter or the bread knife? Do you choose winter or spring, summer or fall? It's driving me crazy that I can't have it all If these walls could talk, they'd probably cry out for mercy 'til I'm outlined in chalk, I'll be romantically thirsty So I drink and drink from the proverbial time sink Fuck this, this can't be my life Tears flowing in full force tonight Why can't I sit down and write, Bring this question to light? [CHORUS] Do we hold the future, or does it come in peace? And if it's in my hands, are you sure it should be in brittle hands like these? Life, love, and the pursuit of all the things they promised me Can I have all of the above? Are the best things in life truly free? [CHORUS]
