RICHARD MARX lyrics

I Get No Sleep

Original and similar lyrics
Got a house full of fortune and they pay me in gold for something I'd do for free. But there's still something missing that a man can't hold, it's like a weight over me, so scared the thrill will be gone. But I'm the one who keeps the pressure on, all I've got is all I need, but I get no sleep and I'm tired to the bone... ...I know I'm not alone. Well, I'm sick of walking 'round with blood in my eyes, just keeping up with this town. I'm a roadrunner racing, but I don't see the signs, I've got to learn to slow down. My life makes it hard to complain, but there's time I'd take my school days back again... ...Four o'clock and I'm still counting sheep. Love to change the system, but I'm in too deep. I keep the pressure far away as I can, but it still comes back again...

The Ballad Of Mary Foster

AL STEWART "Love Chronicles"
David Foster lives in Gloucester with his family Works 'til pay-time, through the day-time, then comes home for tea Steak and kidney, then with Sydney to his club and feels free They close the bar, he finds his car and then goes home to sleep And his wife has been with Rosie, in the parlour where it's cosy Watching telly, doing dishes, patching pants and making wishes And he'll say "Bill should have wired" And "Not tonight dear, I'm too tired" And life drifts slowly by in the provinces Peter Foster goes to Gloucester for his first school day Bites his teacher, sees a preacher and is taught to pray Sees some birds and learns some words it's very, very rude to say Yes, he's rather like his father was in his young day And his father has discussions, holding forth about the Russians "Will the Red Chinese attack us?" "Do we need the Yanks to back us? "And in bed she feels his shoulder, but he grunts and just turns over And life drifts slowly by in the provinces Wedding rings come with strings but love depends on the little things "Oh could that still be really you?" "Is there anything time can't do? David Foster's been promoted, he's a decent sort Peter's gone to Dad's old Public School, it's good for sport They've even got a private parking place down in Huntingdon Court Maybe soon he'll be a magistrate, the neighbours thought Yes, and then he'll teach the beatniks And the hang-around-the-streetnicks And the good-for-nothing loafers Who knock girls up on their sofas And his wife is quite nice, really Though she seems a little dreamy Recently... I was born and brought up on the east side of town And my earliest days they passed quickly I would play after school with the kids all around In the sun and the dust of the back streets Oh, all through my girlhood the war had its day And my daddy he would always be leaving So my brother and I we would sit by her side Telling our tales through the evening Oh, I grew with the days and the boys came to call In the back shed I learned about kissing But I don't think my mother has noticed at all For we've heard that my daddy is missing Then my school days they were over and I went off to work And my mother grew quieter and greyer So one day I left her and went off to live With Billy, a saxophone player In our broken down attic we laughed and made love And all that we had we were sharing Oh, we slept through the day and played into the night God, we did as we pleased without caring Oh but a year's passed away and he's left me one day To play in a far away country And the sun told my eyes "You've got no place to hide" As I waited to be having his baby Oh I lived in the park and the men passed and stared Each wondering which one had lost her And one came to ask could he buy me a meal And he said he was called David Foster We were married that month and I swore to myself Somehow I'd pay back what I owed him Cooking his supper and cleaning his boots Yes, and kidding myself I could love him Oh, but now my baby is grown and he's gone out to school And he looks very much like his daddy And David has buried himself in his work And the time on my hands, it hangs heavy Oh, the neighbours they smile as we pass in the streets And they make their remarks on the weather But the butcher and baker deliver things now And I've stopped going out altogether Oh, I live by my mirror and stare in my eyes Trying to make out who I see there But I'm looking at a woman that I can't recognize And I don't think she knows me either There are lines on her face and her hair is a mess And the light in her eyes it grows colder In the morning there's nothing will change, ah but yes I will be just a little bit older

Feather And Bone

SUZANNE VEGA
you said, come with me and so I did I thought I could take all your sorrow I thought I could hold it all I never imagined your oceans so bitter the killing the falling the slaughter of feather and bone. I sat, still in the five o'clock light the sun came in through the crack the floor to your room was all splinters and, still, some are remaining through skin and through flesh cutting in patterns like diamonds like needles down to the bone. I had to know I had to see I can take it all but I will learn to be free I loved you more that you'll ever know even through broken windows through the blood as it ran down your fist even though it was my life and my truth and my hope and my window gone. and now if you think I'm coming back home first I should tell you a secret. I sleep with a sword near my hand each night sharpened with dreams of your body your murder your blood as it runs down my street.

I Can't Sleep Without You

GOLDEN EARRING "The Naked Thruth"
Silver like a fish slappin' on my tongue Speak to me the way you do Hide me all summer in your arms Hold me the way I like you to You fill my cup 'till it's crackin' up The button that says alarm says me I'm not supposed to be like a champ that's going down Fighting to get close to you Everybody gets up, excited by love The sight of the ring, the sight of the blood I can't sleep without you (4 x) Referee's in black and he's in shock The judge is hammering for some solid proof My heart keeps racing like a clock, yeah I can't sleep without you It's like a time bomb, ready to go off in my head and in my heart The lights keep fading in the dark Just like a nightmare that's comin' true I can't sleep without you I'm crazy in the city, it just ain't fair You send me to my corner, and you're never there I can't sleep without you I can't ..............

Do It Again

Kinks "Word of Mouth"
Standing in the middle of nowhere, Wondering how to begin. Lost between tomorrow and yesterday, Between now and then. And now we're back where we started, Here we go round again. Day after day I get up and I say I better do it again. Where are all the people going? Round and round till we reach the end. One day leading to another, Get up, go out, do it again. Then it's back where you started, Here we go round again. Back where you started, Come on do it again. And you think today is going to be better, Change the world and do it again. Give it all up and start all over, You say you will but you don't know when. Then it's back where you started, Here we go round again. Day after day I get up and I say Come on do it again. The days go by and you wish you were a different guy, Different friends and a new set of clothes. You make alterations and affect a new pose, A new house, a new car, a new job, a new nose. But it's superficial and it's only skin deep, Because the voices in your head keep shouting in your sleep. Get back, get back. Back where you started, here we go round again, Back where you started, come on do it again. Back where you started, here we go round again, Day after day I get up and I say, do it again. Do it again. Day after day I get up and I say, come on do it again.
