MADDI JANE lyrics

Mine

Original and similar lyrics
You were in college working part time waitin' tables Left a small town, never looked back I was a flight risk with a fear of fallin' Wondering why we bother with love if it never lasts I say "Can you believe it? As we're lying on the couch?" The moment I can see it. Yes, yes, I can see it now. Do you remember, we were sitting there by the water? You put your arm around me for the first time. You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter. You are the best thing that's ever been mine. Flash forward and we're taking on the world together, And there's a drawer of my things at your place. You learn my secrets and you figure out why I'm guarded, You say we'll never make my parents' mistakes. But we got bills to pay, We got nothing figured out, When it was hard to take, Yes, yes, this is what I thought about. Do you remember, we were sitting there, by the water? You put your arm around me for the first time You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter You are the best thing that's ever been mine. Do you remember all the city lights on the water? You saw me start to believe for the first time You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter You are the best thing that's ever been mine. Oh, oh, oh And I remember that fight Two-thirty AM As everything was slipping right out of our hands I ran out crying and you followed me out into the street Braced myself for the "Goodbye" 'cause that's all I've ever known Then you took me by surprise You said, "I'll never leave you alone." You said, "I remember how we felt sitting by the water And every time I look at you, it's like the first time I fell in love with a careless man's careful daughter She is the best thing that's ever been mine." Hold on, make it last Hold on, never turn back You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter You are the best thing that's ever been mine. (Hold on) Do you believe it? (Hold on) Gonna make it now. (Hold on) I can see it, (Yes, yes) I can see it now.

Next Time I'm Seventeen

JAMES BLUNT "Moon Landing"
It was the year of 91 Freddy Mercury was gone And Nevermind was playing on our radios We were only 17 I would park out on your street Wait for dark to see you climbing out your window Something's gone wrong with the weather There's a storm out in the desert But to us that all seemed very far away Sometimes, when I Think about those days it makes me wonder What went by Oh yeah, left me breathless She was so damn wild Sometimes I think those were the best days of our lives. (Ohh) We were young and reckless Too soon, out of time Next time I'm 17 I won't be left behind She would still be mine She would still be mine While the Iron Curtain fell We were lying in a field Shared the gin and cigarettes I'd stolen from my dad We both knew what would happen next In my cherry red AX Did she know she was the best I'd ever had Said we'd always be together That we'd stay this way forever The future seemed so very far away Sometimes, when I Think about those days it makes me wonder What went by Oh yeah, left me breathless She was so damn wild Sometimes I think those were the best days of our lives. (Ohh) We were young and reckless Too soon, out of time Next time I'm 17 I won't be left behind She would still be mine You must be married now In some suburban house Are you happy now? Do you ever think back to those times? It was so innocent Do you ever meet me in your mind? Oh yeah, she left me breathless She was so damn wild Sometimes I think those were the best days of our lives. We were young and reckless Too soon, out of time Next time I'm 17 I won't be left behind She would still be mine (Oh yeah, she was) She'd still be mine (Sometimes) Still be mine (Best days of our lives) We were young and reckless Too soon, out of time Next time I'm 17 I won't be left behind She would still be mine.

The Best Thing

CARLY SIMON "Carly Simon"
(Carly Simon) I was his foreigner And he was mine. We ate on terraces And drank the cheapest wine. And he believed in me Down by the serpentine. How was I to know it was the best thing To come along for a long time. I turned the page And saw three children with smiles. I looked to see What I could make of the youngest child. And as she blew the candles out She turned five. How was I to know It was the best thing To come along for a long time. What do the people at the end of the world do About time? What about time? Their secret sleeps with me.

Be Mine

Peter Baumann
The Romance is over The game we played We said our last goodbye We ran out of luck We ran out of love And there's no reason to cry Then I remember our time together You were the dream of my life I remember you Chorus: Be mine - tonight - tonight Be mine just one more time You think I'm crazy I think you're blind Who's the one to blame The poison was sweet Surrender with passion The magic never sustained Then I remember our time together You were the queen of my nights Chorus

Smiling

Kitchens of Destinction
He's not falling, simply waiting, fading at the edges. Sitting back, thinking that there's little point in moving. He smiles, says his stars are friendly, anything can be done. Shall we get very drunk? He says I stay alive, It's the best thing, the only thing I know. She's not talking, easy dreaming all that life away. She gets laughing, missed the light, no regrets today. She looks up, another sunset, Was it very very good? Shall we get really high? She says, I stay alive, it's the best thing, the only think I know. She says, Hold me, hold me hard. Hold me, hold me, hold me harder. Stop me thinking about myself. Stop me hoping for more than I am. She says, Why do I want more than good looks? Why do I want more than great books? Is that all there is? Is that all there is? She smiles and stays alive. It's the best thing, the only thing she knows. They're together, simply dancing all the nights away. There's the window, let's wait up for this precious dawn. He smiles, tells her she looks lovely, anything can be done. She looks up and laughs. He says I stay alive. It's the best thing, the only thing I can give you. I was brought up with higher expectations. I was brought up that hell's a hipper way to go. He says Hold me, hold me hard....

Do You Remember

JACK JOHNSON "In Between Dreams"
Do you remember when we first met I sure do It was a time in early September but you were lazy about it you made me wait around I was so crazy about you I didn't mind. So I was late for class I locked my bike to yours, it wasn't hard to find, you'd painted flowers on it. I guess I was afraid that if you rolled away, you might not roll back my direction really soon. I was crazy about you then and now the craziest thing of all is over ten years have gone by and you're still mine. We're locked in time. Let's rewind. Do you remember when we first moved in together the piano took up the living room. You sang me boogie-woogie, I sand you love songs, you said we're playing house, now you still say we are. We built our getaway up in a tree we found, we felt so far away though we were still in town. I remember watching that old tree burn down I took a picture that I don't like to look at. All these times they come and go {and alone don't seem so long} over ten years have gone by, we can't rewind, we're locked in time and you're still mine. Do you remember.
