RICHARD MARX lyrics

Hazard

Original and similar lyrics
That boy's not right Three years ago when I came to know Mary First time that someone looked beyond the rumors and the lies And saw the man inside We used to walk down by the river She loved to watch the sun go down We used to walk along the river And dream our way out of this town No one understood what I felt for Mary No one cared until the night she went out walking alone And never came home Man with a badge came knocking next morning Here was I surrounded by a thousand fingers suddenly Pointed right at me I swear I left her by the river I swear I left her safe and sound I need to make it to the river And leave this old Nebraska town I think about my life gone by How it's done me wrong There's no escape for me this time All of my rescues are gone, long gone I swear I left her by the river I swear I left her safe and sound I need to make it to the river And leave this old Nebraska town

The Load-Out

JACKSON BROWNE "Running On Empty"
(Jackson Browne & Bryan Garofalo) Now the seats are all empty Let the roadies take the stage Pack it up and tear it down They're the first to come and last to leave Working for that minimum wage They'll set it up in another town Tonight the people were so fine They waited there in line And when they got up on their feet they made the show And that was sweet... But I can hear the sound Of slamming doors and folding chairs And that's a sound they'll never know Now roll them cases out and lift them amps Haul them trusses down and get'em up them ramps 'Cause when it comes to moving me You guys are the champs But when that last guitar's been packed away You know that I still want to play So just make sure you got it all set to go Before you come for my piano But the band's on the bus And they're waiting to go We've got to drive all night and do a show in Chicago or Detroit, I don't know We do so many shows in a row And these towns all look the same We just pass the time in our hotel rooms And wander 'round backstage Till those lights come up and we hear that crowd And we remember why we came Now we got country and western on the bus R and B, we got disco in eight tracks and cassettes in stereo We've got rural scenes & magazines We've got truckers on the CB We've got Richard Pryor on the video We got time to think of the ones we love While the miles roll away But the only time that seems too short Is the time that we get to play People you've got the power over what we do You can sit there and wait Or you can pull us through Come along, sing the song You know you can't go wrong 'Cause when that morning sun comes beating down You're going to wake up in your town But we'll be scheduled to appear A thousand miles away from here

Last Ditch Effort (See You Try)

JOSH RITTER "Josh Ritter"
You have chosen dawn to leave Don't bother me while I am sleeping Life continues and though you go out I'll sleep another hour or so Though you think that I am fragile I'm a river and I'll travel on whether you are here or not You're not the only thing I've got So turn the light off when you leave Don't forget to leave the key You know I'm going to miss your touch You say that you can't help that much But I would have loved to see you try It's not that we committed sins We wouldn't know where to begin We just love different things in our lives I love you and you loved time Now that my time has gone You have risen like the dawn And you kissed me as if once we part I might die of a broken heart [chorus] Though I will not try to change your mind Believing what you left behind is a child who is lost confused as a consequnce of loving you I will not try to call your bluff The truth would hurt you far too much I'm sorry I got left behind But now you're gone I feel fine

I Hate This Town

JOHN GRANT "Pale Green Ghosts"
Horrifying as it was for me To see your face today, I guess I knew that it would happen at some point. And I dreaded it because I knew That you would be so kind. You're good at that; you've got it right down to a science. So you observe the strict rules laid out in the books of etiquette And tell me you hope I enjoy my stay. And I feel numb, and I can't believe That I was stupid enough to leave my bed today. If I'm so smart, then why is this happening? You know, I hate this fucking town. You cannot even leave your fucking house Without running into someone who no longer cares about you-- Somebody whom you desperately want to see, But you know it's only going to cause more grief 'Cause there is nothing left to say, And he can't hear you anyway. It's so confusing 'cause I really want To hate you, but my intellect reminds me That that doesn't make no sense. And I wanted to be your friend, But I couldn't pull it off in the end. And I'm disappointed with myself because I thought I could. But then again you always made it clear That you do not care either way-- Which begs the question, "How can I still claim to love you?" You told me time and time again That you don't lose--you always win-- And that to make an effort would just be beneath you. You know, I hate this fucking town. You cannot even leave your fucking house Without running into someone who no longer cares about you-- Somebody whom you desperately want to see, But you know it's only going to cause more grief 'Cause there is nothing left to say. He can't hear you anyway. Now, I'm packing my bags again, And you are not inside of them.

Say Hey There

ATMOSPHERE "Happy Clown Bad Dub 8 / Fun EP"
[Verse 1] What ya gonna do? Slam Doors? Break a glass? Maybe pass out on the kitchen floor with your naked a#$? She still makes time to hate me But basically I'm overbooked no emotional vacancy Complacency seems so simple Like f#*k it, let me be the one you fight and call mister right It's an addiction bound to stick around Cause a junky won't bounce till he hits the ground These drugs ain't as good as we wish they were This buzz doesn't keep us from missin her And that love that built all of this emphasis Spilled enough guilt to kill Electra and Oedipus It's easier to leave it there Each time I see your tears makes me need a beer to relieve the fear I wanna keep a clear sky and fly away like a meteor Outa here, maybe next year I'll reappear [Chorus] I say hey there, we don't play fair You can't stay here, I hope you take care [4X] [Verse 2] Sometimes you make me feel like such a p%^@k That even I'm convinced that I'm the one that's sick You can fuss and bitch, you can cut your wrist Or you can choke on that blood from the tongue you've bit And when you acted up, best believe I blessed you back I've got a fucking fan base that can attest to that I'm returning this bleeding hearts club membership card Cause I want no motherfuckin part of it We're just two dogs on all fours It's a tug of war for who loves you more Blame it on tours or locked bathroom doors Or maybe it's cause my voice was louder than yours And I'll be damned if I do this for forever Everybody lookin at me like I don't know better Instead I gotta run if I'm ever gonna forget her Cause I've always been a go-getter [Chorus] [Verse 3] And now I got a head full of better off dead I followed down them steps, and slept in the wrong bed If I had a breath of self-respect left I'd set fire to the box spring to help it catch wreck Let these ashes represent the mattress Director left the set but nobody told the actress So she's still actin as if we scheduled a practice And my soundtrack is compromising her theatrics You remind me of me, it's not a compliment, get your song on Who you trying to be? I've got no tolerance left for drama You would like to go free, jump off the fence, let your claws out You remind me of me, run from all of them till they all gone Then here we go again with my threats to leave Like I've ever left a she who wouldn't let me breathe Instead I kept it deep enough to get you to believe That I'm incapable of escaping and setting you free Well I'ma open up that map and see the nation Call it vocation, call it a vacation You can find me at the airport waiting Or maybe I'll be chain smoking down at the train station With the pose of a mack and my clothes in a sack Gotta go and I don't know when I'll be back Get my last pay check, smash and make steps Gone, on the run with Kool G. Rap in the tape deck [Chorus X2]

Come One, Come All

ALL TIME LOW "So Wrong, It's Right"
Come one, come all You're just in time To witness my first breakdown Cause there's a mile gone For every minute passed When I'm stuck in this town I've got a bone to pick with you, Mr. DJ The traffic and the sound Is just as bad as it is in LA So go on and lock me up You better throw away that key Before I find out where you broadcast from Because your play list is killing me I'll change that station Light it up like the 4th of July It's me, I'm caller fifteen Time to play my last request Come one, come all You're just in time To witness my first breakdown Cause there's a mile gone For every minute passed When I'm wasting space in this town Don't call the doctors I don't need no medication I just need one more vacation And make it last Hear me out, please, judge and jury I'm an innocent man And it would be such a terrible injustice To put me away without thinking about All the terrible mistakes That goddamn radio jockey makes I swear he's out to get me Oh, I swear he's out to get me I'll change that station Light it up like the 4th of July It's me, I'm caller fifteen But it's too late for explanations This broadcast will be your last Come one, come all You're just in time To witness my first breakdown Cause there's a mile gone For every minute passed When I'm wasting space in this town Don't call the doctors I don't need no medication I just need one more vacation And make it last Hear me out, please, judge and jury And I swear he's out to get me Oh, I swear he's out to get me Go on and lock me up You better throw away that key I swear he's out to get me I swear he's out to get me I've got a bone to pick with you, Mr. DJ You really ought to lock me up Because your play list is killing me Come one, come all You're just in time To witness my first breakdown Cause there's a mile gone For every minute passed When I'm wasting space in this town Don't call the doctors I don't need no medication I just need one more vacation And make it last
