RICK SPRINGFIELD lyrics - Hard To Hold

Bop 'til You Drop

Original and similar lyrics
(Springfield) Bop 'til you drop In the hot city Keep on working day and night Don't stop 'til you get what you want Bop 'til you drop In the hot city Burn the candle, burn it bright Love will have to wait You wake up wired and draw on your makeup And the city breathes And the city jumps to life Lately it seems Your time is all used up Chasing dreams Of money and the good life But there is something you've been thinking of Lately you're feeling the power of love Everybody says it's so hard to hold The alarm rings You gotta get up, you gotta get up Bop 'til you drop In the hot city Keep on working day and night Don't stop 'til you get what you want Bop 'til you drop 'Til you sit pretty Burn the candle, burn it bright Love will have to wait People say you're the lucky one But you don't believe it And you want to stop And you want to take some time To sus' out a feeling and look for a reason And the flesh is weak But the spirit is willing 'Cause there is something you've been thinking of Lately you're feeling the power of love Everybody says it's so, so hard to hold The alarm rings You gotta get up, you gotta get up Bop 'til you drop In the hot city Keep on working day and night Don't stop 'til you get what you want Bop 'til you drop 'Til you sit pretty Burn the candle, burn it bright Love won't, love won't wait There is something you've been thinking of Lately you're feeling the power of love Everybody says it's so hard to hold The alarm rings You gotta get up, you gotta get up Bop 'til you drop In the hot city Keep on working day and night

Somewhere In The City

ALICIA KEYS
Just the other day... I was looking out the window And I was thinking... Somewhere in a city just like mine, uh Somewhere in a city like mine Sky is falling Somewhere in a city like mine Father's calling Seas are rising See yours crying Dreams may wash away But we're surviving Mothers trying Help us see our ways So you gotta love somebody So you gotta love somebody When everybody loves someone There's nothing to fear So you gotta love somebody So you gotta love somebody Everybody knows that love's the reason we're here Uh, yeah, come on Say, say it one more time Somewhere on an island like mine World is shaking Somewhere on an island like mine Hearts are breaking Seas are rising Birds are diving Dreams may wash away But we're surviving Mothers trying To help us see our ways So you gotta love somebody So you gotta love somebody When everybody loves someone There's nothing to fear So you gotta love somebody So you gotta love somebody Everybody knows that love's the reason we're here I know, I know, I know It feels like some things will never change Oh Lord Come on, come on, come on Don't get down Just start to be the change That you want in the world So... You gotta love somebody So you gotta love somebody When everybody loves someone There's nothing to fear So you gotta love somebody So you gotta love somebody Everybody knows that love's the reason we're here Ooh Everybody knows that love... Ooh oh, uhuh

Carried Into Redemption

Rickie Lee Jones "The Evening Of My Best Day"
I know that lizards like jelly, because i have fed wild geckos on the roof of my hut in the seychelles islands. she was called the morning lizard, and i would drop clear ponds From the tips of my fingers for her to drink, and drop gobs of silly flavored jelly on the counter for her to lick. I know that it is possible to become intimate with a stranger, from a distance, across time and continents, because i have knelt before a young master in a very private tea Ceremony. i watched him move, whisk, wipe, fold, touch, offer, drink, enter, exit, Well this one wasn't so good. I have debuted at carnegie hall. I have been homeless, panhandled on the streets. I have witnessed death, and birth, and graduation. I have been told to leave, and invited to stay. I went to a big new years eve party in new york city, with many famous people, the mayor, baryshnikov, jessica lange, I was at the opening of the film which one best film that year. I was kicked out of high school I was given the key to the city of baltimore. What a kick. i'd like more of those. i was arrested I am the highest point of my family tree. i call them to fruition, i sing them themes about the beautiful sky, but they cannot see it. there is a canopy above them, being Woven out of determination to grow. out of the legacy of pain. i call them but they do not come, they cannot come, no sun hits them. I have swum with turtles in the open sea. I found ancient, rusty nails on the shore. And written about the boat, the sailors, and their homes , from one piece of survival. I grew up in a hospital, watching my brother die. I grew up in a hotel room , watching my mother bring home left over food.for our dinner. I have cried my self to sleep by the cold sea, with no coat or blanket or dime for the phone, And awakened in the warm sun, in his arms, hearing his grunts and the rustling of his leaves, his great purring And measured love by these things, And so love became a fearful calm, And i have always run Back to the storm The lion completed, weakened by love, Send me back to the hunt My lord I have turned my back to the sunrise from hotel rooms And called out the name of the setting sun from the desert floor I've been where it was happening I have made it happen I have walked down tiny lanes alone, for miles I have planned revolutions I have carved myself into moderation I abandon my own shadow I have been attacked by droves of red ants. By crazy horses By crazy people I have been carried all the way, by someone, now and then But he is always too tired to stay then And i hate him for loving my weakness I have been in a helicopter, flying over the alaskan glaciers, and i have been in the concord, faster than sound. As much as i have learned camouflage, i have left my broken body on the plains at dusk I been in a jet when the oxygen masks dropped I came out to the car and my daughter was gone from her car seat. She had followed me in. All of it is written over and over again. I have skiied, water skiied, raced in the water, i have played baseball and cards. I learned chess at 8, when i learned my funny valentine. I met bob dylan. He called me a poet. I rode with maximilian shell, and leonard cohen in the same elevator.on different occasio

Coming Up

ANI DIFRANCO "Imperfectly"
Our father who art in a penthouse Sits in his 37th floor suite And swivels to gaze down At the city he made me in He allows me to stand and Sollicit graffiti until He needs the land I stand on I in my darkened threshold Am pawing through my pockets The receipts, the bus schedules The matchbook phone numbers The urgent napkin poems All of which laundering has rendered Pulpy and strange Loose change and a key Ask me Go ahead, ask me if I care I got the answer here I wrote it down somewhere I just gotta find it I just gotta find it Somebody and their spraypaint got too close Somebody came on too heavy Now look at me made ugly By the drooling letters I was better off alone Ain't that the way it is They don't know the first thing But you don't know that Until they take the first swing My fingers are red and swollen from the cold I'm getting bold in my old age So go ahead, try the door It doesn't matter anymore I know the weakhearted are strongwilled And we are being kept alive Until we're killed He's up there The ice is clinking in his glass I don't ask I just empty my pockets and wait It's not fate It's just circumstance I don't fool myself with romance I just live Phone number to phone number Dusting them against my thighs In the warmth of my pockets Which whisper history incessantly Asking me where were you I lower my eyes Wishing I could cry more And care less, Yes it's true, I was trying to love someone again, I was caught caring, Bearing weight But I love this city, this state This country is too large And whoever's in charge up there Had better take the elevator down And put more than change in our cup Or else we are coming up

By Your Side

ATMOSPHERE
Y'all know I used to own a bar right It was in El Paso I called it the hard life If you step outside on a dark night Check it out Juarez look like starlight You goin think it sounds contrived But its just like how I describe July in 2005 when the devil walked into my small little dive She came inside and sat down Whatever we see all types in that town She kinda blended into the background The waitress went over like what'll you have now She asked for a whiskey coke The waitress stood there lookin like a ghost And then the devil cleared her throat Lowered her voice and this is the quote she spoke I love you you make me high If you love me back I'll never say goodbye I love you ain't no lie If you love me back we could paint the sky But we ain't gotta get into it tonight Walk away if you afraid to try But tell me what you wanna do with your life Buz on the day you die I'll be on your side Okay I guess so apparently my waitress is afraid of the devil And could tell she felt unsettled go take a cigarette break get mellow The whole bar got quiet seemed like everything went plush and dream like I didn't know what to think but I kept my cool while I prepared that drink Then I delivered her beverage That'll be 2 dollars 50 cents miss She didn't even pretend to flich Just grabbed the glass took it straight to her lips But I wasn't convinced it don't matter who you are I'm runnin a business Fuck you pay me not includin the tip She was lookin into the distance and said this I love you you make me high If you love me back I'll never say goodbye I love you ain't no lie If you love me back we could paint the sky But we ain't gotta get into it tonight Walk away if you afraid to try But tell me what you wanna do with your life Cuz on the day you die I'll be on your side I know they call her lady luck But she still gotta pay me up She tryina front over a couple of bucks She can suck the straw that broke the camels hump I bust my ass tryina touch some cash Now I gotta come a put up with this trash For what so I can eat these table scraps Get old and hope I ain't gotta pay more tax I started makin observations Lookin around the room watchin faces Complaints have replaced my patience I hate my life but I'm so complacent This time gonna make some changes Made my mind up to turn these pages I pulled out the key to the place Gave the bar to the devil then married the waitress I love you you make me high If you love me back I'll never say goodbye I love you ain't no lie If you love me back could paint the sky But we ain't gotta get into it tonight Walk away if you afraid to try But tell me what you wanna do with your life Until the day I die I'll be on your side
