RICK SPRINGFIELD lyrics - Shock/Denial/Anger/Acceptance

Lio

Original and similar lyrics
LIO they say you haven't made it Until you got that favor I can't help it hurts me The pen cuts like a razor Too bad if they kick you in the face They draw blood you can put in your pen And you write again Oh what a disappointment, LIO I thought that you would go the distance, my...oh... Anticipation was a little high, oh... You were low, low, low, low, LIO Symbols spread across the pages I play electric wires I've got rhythms in my head And irons in the fires It don't hurt the process But they did leave a scar on the face of the fighter Who'll fight again Oh what a disappointment, LIO I thought that you would go the distance, my...oh... Anticipation was a little high, oh... You were low, low, low, low, LIO My world, which lives inside of my head No where else but my head And I'm the one who puts the limitations on it They said you belong in this line over here No thanks, I'm not that weak And the music will speak again Oh what a disappointment, LIO I thought that you would go the distance, my...oh... Anticipation was a little high, oh... You were low, low, low, low, LIO You were low, low, low, low, LIO You were low, low, low, low Humans walking around in cages We build with our own hands Looking for the turning point that waits outside...

It All Comes Back Someday

JOHN HIATT "Mystic Pinball"
You shot bolt upright in the middle of the dark As she drove her motorcycle through the trailer park A hundred miles an hour, no helmet on her head 'Til that concrete drain was runnin' cherry red Used to sit and drink coffee at the Waffle House Had to spin up her wheels just to get it out [Chorus:] Now it all comes back to haunt you Yeah, it comes back anytime it wants to It all comes back through the holes and the cracks Where you thought you let it slip away Yeah, it all comes back some day Feelin' bad about yourself, you were seven years old So you got her in the bushes where you had some control Tied up her hands so she couldn't fight fair Threw a jar of silver model car paint in her hair After all these years does the shoe still fit? Have you only just now started wearin' it? [Chorus] The way she combed her hair Straight across a minute where you could have died You thought love was something that you had to hide To survive All those lives you thought you lived away There ain't a one showin' any kinda sign of decay They're all stacked on your head like infinity's crown The truth is you ain't never lived anything down You're bound up forever to the blood on the trail To the tires on the gravel to the rust on the rail [Chorus]

We All Thought We'd Make It Big

Graveblankets "Apple Plum Blood Pudding"
We had always been musicians Then we played the right gig All the New York papers said It's a cinch they'll make it big We jumped in our econo-line Went out west in record time That promoter robbed us blind Headed north without a dime We all thought we'd make it big High as kites and filthy rich We all thought we'd make it big Washing dishes paid for gas Even played a Catholic mass Saved enough to make the drives Still we waited for our prize In Vancouver we reigned supreme They liked us better than their queen The ferry to Victoria Had free hot dogs and cole slaw We all thought we'd make it big High as kites and filthy rich We all thought we'd make it big Failure never crossed our minds Like the horse races We kept on the blinders The band split up in Washington Because the van broke down Everyone hitch hiked home Sold guitars and our clothes Most of my family keeps on asking They just want to hear me spout Well I say it's pretty simple I got chewed up and spit out We all thought we'd make it big High as kites and filthy rich We all thought we'd make it big Fatted calves and stuffed pigs

Just A Memory

RUFIO "Perhaps I Suppose..."
The sadness comes when it's least expected It shot out of the dark, and slammed in our face The hurt it brings can't be stopped The hurt it brings can't be cured, oh Just when I thought things were alright You came in and broke my heart My stomach's full of butterflies The thought of you gone, it tears me apart I remember you and me when we used to Laugh all night until we fell asleep, oh And i know we're through But i've still got thoughts of you left inside my head Oh... in my head... The love that I have for you Is done and dead, it's so far away And you're still here in my head And you're still here, you'll never leave my heart Just when I thought things were alright You came in and broke my heart My stomach's full of butterflies The thought of you gone, it tears me apart I remember you and me when we used to Laugh all night until we fell asleep, oh And i know we're through But i've still got thoughts of you left inside my head So stop me now Stop my thoughts cause you're killin me But you don't know Even though we've grown apart I'll still be there for you Cause I don't wanna be just a memory to you Cause I don't wanna be just a memory to you

Dan, My Fling

CARLY SIMON "Carly Simon"
(Jacob Brackman/Fred Gardner) I said that I felt jailed up As if our doors were nailed up I said I needed separate places, Parties, room to move around in. I said I needed my fling Had to get out and do some other thing. It took me months to calculate That I had nothing left without you- [Chorus:] Dan, my fling is all flung out Now I've got to fall back on dreams I thought I'd try and write you I thought I'd try and phone you I thought I'd try to tell you That I smell your hair still on my pillow But you'd just mile to please me You'd shake your head, you'd tease me - Remind me it was I who first claimed That we both required freedom [Chorus] I'd dream up schemes to meet you, I'd nonchalantly greet you, I'd ask you up for coffee Anytime you had an hour open. You say you like my hair long, You ask me if I've written any new songs, You'd laugh, you'd turn and cross the street And leave me dizzy with your laughter - [Chorus] I hear you're leaving this town, You and some girl gonna travel around, You bought a car with foldback seats, you'll camp out by the lakes and forests. I lie alone in our old bed, Your laughter it's echoin' inside my head. I close my eyes, I smell your hair It's like I haven't slept in years - [Chorus]

High Flying Bird

ELTON JOHN "Don't Shoot Me (I'm Only The Piano Player)"
Music by Elton John Available on the album Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player You wore a little cross of gold around your neck I saw it as you flew between my reason Like a raven in the night time when you left I wear a chain upon my wrist that bears no name You touched it and you wore it And you kept it in your pillow all the same My high-flying bird has flown from out my arms I thought myself her keeper She thought I meant her harm She thought I was the archer A weather man of words But I could never shoot down My high-flying bird The white walls of your dressing room are stained in scarlet red You bled upon the cold stone like a young man In the foreign field of death Wouldn't it be wonderful is all I heard you say You never closed your eyes at night and learned to love daylight Instead you moved away
