Rickie Lee Jones lyrics - Girl At Her Volcano

Lush Life

Original and similar lyrics
(Billy Strahorn) I used to visit all the very gay places Those come-what-may places I used to visit all the very gay places Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life To get the feel of life From jazz and cocktails. The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces With distingue traces That used to be there - You could see where they'd been washed away By too many through the day Twelve o'clock tales Then you came along with your siren song To tempt me to madness... I thought for a while that your poignant smile Was tinged with the sadness... Of a great love for me. Ah yes, I was wrong. Again, I was wrong. Life is lonely again, And only last year, everything seemed so sure. Now life is awful again, A trough full of hearts could only be a bore. A week in Paris will ease the bite of it All I care is to smile in spite of it I'll forget you, I will While yet you are still Burning inside my brain Romance is mush Stifling those who strive I'll live a lush life in some small dive And there I'll be, while I rot with the rest Of those whose lives are lonely too.

Unbreakable

ARTIST VS POET "Medicine"
As for you, my my galvanized friend You want a heart You don't know how lucky you are not to have one Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable The rain was pouring down I just embarrassed you Told you I'd take care of you Too much to drink Your turned your attention To someone I didn't know And you thought I could take the blow I can barely think And I Will find you in another life One where we are never gonna fight And I Will find you in another life Forget tears of sadness I could save us from the madness You woke up, You threw up Oh, it never happened again I spoke up, We grew up Oh, we never have to still pretend (Unbreakable) In and off, And we slept alone A small space to be so cold Rain dripping on both our souls You turned your back on me baby You swear you did it out of love You swear you did it out of love And through the fighting With strain and bruises and tears we made it This far with scars as big as our hearts And now my heart can't take it I swear I did it out of love I swear I did it out of love And I Will find you in another life One where we are never gonna fight And I Will find you in another life Forget tears of sadness I could save us from the madness You woke up, You threw up Oh, it never happened again I spoke up, We grew up Oh, we never have to still pretend (You woke up) (You threw up) (Oh, it never happened again) (I spoke up,) (We grew up) (Oh, we never have to still pretend)

And boy did I get it, but after you spanked me, you hugged me Kissed me on my forehead, told me that you love me And I saw, that it hurt you, more than it hurt me I thought - how bad could this hurt be? I know now That's why it's only done out of love What I wouldn't give for one mo' hug, from grandma [Chorus: Faith Evans] Baby it's gon' be okay (she used to tell me that) Baby it's gon' be okay (I really miss hearin) Baby it's gon' be okay (she used to tell me that) Baby it's gon' be okay (I really miss hearin) [DMX] What I'm about to say a couple of family members is gon' hate me But I'ma let you know what's been goin on lately Now you know since you left, a lot of things witcho kids done changed Yeah Jackie's still crazy, don't know what's up with James Ain't seen Jerry in a while, you know he walk like you And Renee's back in jail, you know she talk like you Riculah's(?) doin real good now, she workin Rhonda's still runnin around, trickin, jerkin Buckeye's buggin, he done lost his mind And Jarvis?

Long Island Blues

JULIAN CASABLANCAS "Phrazes For The Young"
I see a drug bust in your eyes. There are bruises on your thighs. I can see you're trying to hide All the darkness in your mind. You got sawdust on your toes From that sports bar down the road. You have beer glass in your feet. You say kiss me on the cheek. Some people get paid to talk Some people get paid to listen Some people buy a ticket And can't wait for intermission. Just like some might love you blindly Some might love you with conditions Some will love you like an unloved child Loves family traditions. Now she's tainted by the syringe Try to rhyme a word with orange I'm a cheap and ugly sinner To whose soul love is so foreign. So if you're sideways And if you wanna go my way Before a meteor shower Decides that you should be devoured Whether you're locked up in the tower Or if you charge them by the hour In mama's eyes you were a flower Forget the aftertaste of life gone sour. Will you finish what you started? Travel the seas you never parted Remember things you disregarded Communicate with the departed Believe in things you thought weren't founded Prepare to always be astounded Or keep your dreams and visions grounded It took a while but then I found it. No one inspired you in time So you left your love behind In a world that discourage One who's young and full of courage. You said you'd start at the bottom But instead you start at the top Be careful what you wish for On your lap it just might drop. It's a lonely life at the bottom It can be lonely too at the top Make sure your heart is singing Right until the day it stops. They all say dream But what they mean is be specific or obscene It's time to find some time to fail at makes you most happy. Sometimes you concentrate on lovers To forget everything else Sometimes you hate each other to forget you hate yourself. So if you're sideways And if you wanna go my way Before a meteor shower Decides that you should be devoured Whether you're locked up in the tower Or if you charge them by the hour Tell me you'll always be a flower Forget the aftertaste of life got sour. Will you finish what you started? Before you celebrate with a cigarette Remember things you disregarded Communicate with the departed Prepare to always be astounded Believe in things you thought weren't founded Don't keep those dreams and visions grounded It took a while but now I found it.

Above You, Below Me

BADLY DRAWN BOY "About A Boy - Soundtrack"
Don't wanna give Don't wanna steer Don't wanna be anything I'm not You take answers I give questions Like some rolling monologue Wanna be the one to say That today could be the day A pity to believe in what You know is what you know I will take you as you are Please accept me as I am Find your lonely life bizzare Know it's above you know I know it's below me Always ?? Don't wanna live life in your shoes I don't feel I know the way Feeling you, giving me directions I don't need Up and up and round we go First it's fast and then we're slow Could u connect with my interlect I wont take you as you are Please don't take me as I am Find your lonely life bizzare You'll see this in love You'll see this in life For an all year round reception For a love with no connection Knowing you, knowing my Ignorance to more then life Know it's above you, I know it's below me I will take you as you are Please accept me as I am Find your lonely life bizzare Know it's above you know I know it's below me I will take you as you are Please accept me as I am There'll be something in the wind To show us the light and tell us we're wrong I want to move on
