RICK JAMES lyrics - Garden Of Love

Big Time

Original and similar lyrics
Wanted to be on a stage Where bright lights shine On me at Carnegie Polished up my act Knew the crowds would see I had the knack And that's a fact Glamour and fame Wasn't much more than a crazy game I had to play Now I got my wish I don't know if I can handle this But I think I'm gonna win I'm in the Big Time, Big Time And I know success is all mine, all mine Big Time, Big Time Gonna have the best of time So now I'm there and an agent handles my career, Star of the Year Following the steps of the best Of Broadway East and West, I passed the test It's all too much With the interviews, reviews and such I'm very touched And it blows my mind All the autographs I have to sign And there's so little time I'm in the Big Time, Big Time And I know success is all mine, all mine Big Time, Big Time Gonna have the best of time I was born to funk I was born to funk and roll In the Big Time

This Time Around

Linda Eder
This time around I'll take the moment This time around I'll make it last I've had my share of wasted moments But this time around I'm holding fast This time around I will be stronger Stronger than I've been before I'll find the sky and soar This time around This time around I will be daring I'm going where I've never been This time around luck will come knocking And when he does I'll let him in This time around - No second places I'm showing aces - I'll win I'm gonna have it all This time around Love, I'm gonna find you Happiness, I'm right behind you I've had my share of crying But there's no denying I'm on my way This time around I'll taste the glory And I'm not going down without a fight This is my life, my own story And this time around I'll get it right This time around, I'm gonna find it Look out world, watch me shine, shine I'm gonna grab that big brass ring And I'm gonna make it mine This time around, I'm gonna make it mine

Next Time

Henry Rollins "Do It"
I saw this cat leave my pad And this made me awful sad But in the mean time I was gettin' mad And I said, Baby what explanation do you have? She said, Mmmmmmm, Next Time What do you mean Next Time? No next time baby, that ws the last time I got my hat and headed for the door I knew I wouldn't be back there no more And the landlord came up a real cool jed he said, Hey buddy, how bout the rent? I said, Mmmmmmmm, Next Time What do you mean Next Time? He said no next time, you gonna pay me right now Now after the confusion had all died down I figured I'd better get outta town But when I arrived at the airport There stood a man with a notice sayin' Bail ya to support I said, Mmmmmmm, Next Time What do you mean Next Time? He said no, next time, you comin' home right now They took me to see an old friend of mine Yeah district court, room 229 Just say your payments are way behind I said, Don't worry daddy, it won't happen next time. And he said, Mmmmmmmm, Next Time. What do you mean Next Time? Ain't gonna be no next time, cuz you goin' to jail right now.

Most Likely You Go Your Way And I'll Go Mine

BOB DYLAN "Blonde On Blonde"
You say you love me And you're thinkin' of me But you know you could be wrong You say you told me That you wanna hold me But you know you're not that strong I just can't do what I done before I just can't beg you any more I'm gonna let your pass And I'll go last Then time will tell just who has fell And who's been left behind When you go your way and I go mine. You say you disturb me And you don't deserve me But you know sometimes you lie You say you're shakin' And you're always achin' But you know how hard you try Sometimes it gets so hard to care It can't be this way ev'rywhere And I'm gonna let you pass Yes, and I'll go last Then time will tell who has fell And who's been left behind When you go your way and I go mine. The judge, he holds a grudge He's gonna call on you But he's badly built And he walks on stilts Watch out he don't fall on you. You say you're sorry For tellin' stories That you know I believe are true You say ya got some Other kinda lover And yes, I belive you do You say my kisses are not like his But this time I'm not gonna tell you why that is I'm just gonna let you pass Yes, and I'll go last Then time will tell who has fell And who's been left behind When you go your way and I go mine.

Mine

KARMIN "Karmin Covers, Vol. 1"
Uh, oh, oh Uh, oh, oh You were in college working part time waiting 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?" And 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 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, 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. You're the best thing that’s ever been mine." I fell in love with a careless man’s careful daughter. You're the best thing that’s ever been mine."

Make You Mine

KWABS "Love + War"
Been doubting my life Waiting in the waves Praying for the morning to leave him Been out of my mind Visions of the two of us Crashing through me night after night Talk about losing faith I'm only in love for way And don't tell your boyfriend you're lonely Long as I'm on this earth I promise he don't deserve you I should be your one and only Gonna make you mine If it tears me into pieces If it takes me 'til the end of time Set your soul on fire, darling Then you're burning like the Sun 'Til I can see the flames in your eyes Make you mine, mine Make you mine, mine, mine Look in my eyes, tell me That you shouldn't like a skin But you're turning me some perfect creature Oh and you lie Cause my body will betray you The more you talk The more your star will start to show Talk about losing faith I'm only in love for way And don't tell your boyfriend you're lonely Long as I'm on this earth I promise he don't deserve you I should be your one and only Gonna make you mine If it tears me into pieces If it takes me 'til the end of time Set your soul on fire, darling Then you're burning like the Sun 'Til I can see the flames in your eyes Make you mine, mine Make you mine, mine, mine Talk about losing faith You're hiding your heart away It's only a matter of time Make you mine, mine, mine Gonna make you mine If it tears me into pieces If it takes me 'til the stars are fallin' out the sky Gonna make you mine If it tears me into pieces If it takes me 'til the end of time Set your soul on fire, darling Then you're burning like the Sun 'Til I can see the flames in your eyes Gonna make you mine If it tears me into pieces If it takes me 'til the end of time Set your soul on fire, darling Then you're burning like the Sun 'Til I can see the flames in your eyes Make you mine, mine Make you mine, mine, mine
