I Can't Get Started

Original and similar lyrics
(Ira Gershwin / Vernon Duke) Iv'e been around the world in a plane I've settled revolutions in Spain The North Pole I have charted But man I can't get started with you And at the golf course I'm under par Metro-Goldwyn wants me to star I've got a house and a show place But can't get no place with you You're so supreme The lyrics I write of you Dream, dream, day and night of you Scheme just for the sight of you Baby but what good dose it do I've been consulted by Franklin D. Even Gabel had me to tea But now I'm broken hearted Can't get started with you You're so supreme The lyrics I write of you Dream, dream, day and night of you Scheme just for the sight of you But what good does it do I've been consulted by Franklin D. Even Basic had me to tea But now I'm broken hearted Can't get started with you

Good Night

KANYE WEST "Graduation"
[Bridge - Mos Def] I'm not sure anymore-more Who is knocking at my door-door All the faces that I know Ja make them so sunny and true [Chorus - Mos Def] I don't wanna say goodbye to you So I'll just say good night to you My people, no goodbyes to you I'm just gonna say good night [Verse - Kanye West] Right now I can see it so vivid Like it was just yesterday like I could relive it Me and my grandparents on a field trid-ip And I'm the little kid tryna touch the exhibits But it'll fade before I get to get a hold of that Man I wish I could stop time like a photograph Every joke that they told I'd know to laugh Man, man I wouldn't let a moment pass What do it mean when you dream that you fallin' What do it mean when you dream that you ballin' What do it mean when you never dream at all then And you don't really know cause you can't recall them It's sorta fly you get a chance to say hi to People you never got a chance to say bye to Maybe you could pull em up outta your dreams Into real life, if you try to So close, but so far And so far, no cigar We can't dwell on the past all we got is today So I'mma live like there's no tomorrow No goodbye [Chorus - Mos Def] I don't wanna say goodbye to you So I'll just say good night to you My people, no goodbyes to you I'm just gonna say good night [Verse - Al Be] Uhh, to you If I part my heart will live through you Dream beautiful and unusual Wake up like everyday new to you Stay true to you, a hood musical My art will live through you Dream beautiful and unusual Wake up like everyday new to you Stay true to you, a hood musical [Chorus - Mos Def] I don't wanna say goodbye to you So I'll just say good night to you My people, no goodbyes to you I'm just gonna say good night [Bridge - Mos Def x3] I'm not sure anymore-more Who is knocking at my door-door All the faces that I know Ja make them so sunny and true

What Condition Am I In?

MILES KANE "Don't Forget Who You Are"
What condition am I in When you're racing round my head? What condition am I in When I'm burning in my bed? It's a mistery, I can't get started She's leaving broken hearted Like the ripples in last night's drinking I'm starting to over think it now What condition am I in? What condition am I in When I'm spinning this and that, that, yeah? What condition am I in? You ain't coming back, back, yeah It's a mistery, I can't get started She's leaving broken hearted Like the ripples in last night's drinking I'm starting to over think it now What condition am I in? Visualising things could Be better than they are I'm spending as I'm swinging From a star What condition am I in? You tell me baby What condition am I in? It's a mistery, I can't get started She's leaving broken hearted Like the ripples in last night's drinking I'm starting to over think it now What condition am I in? [x4]

Broken Hearted

JON MCLAUGHLIN "Holding My Breath"
That look in your eye was the reason I wasn’t leavin’ The words that I had yet to say kept me standin’ still We nervously laughed as we widened the gap that our silence Had already filled Sometimes a moment can change when you hold it too tightly And I know I remember that night the way it never was And all I needed was some guarantee that my heart would not do what it does and break us up and Every moment that comes can be disregarded You’ll never love someone ‘til you’re broken hearted Wars have never been won before they started You’ll never love someone ‘til you’re broken hearted I think about you in that moment of truth And I wonder if maybe my future will one day look like my past (mmm) But I suppose that the answer is, “no” So I’ve got to find a way back just to tell myself that Every moment that comes can be disregarded You’ll never love someone ‘til you’re broken hearted Wars have never been won before they started You’ll never love someone ‘til you’re broken hearted And white lies all come and separate us from the cruel truth we live And long nights go ahead and take all the time that I can give Every moment that comes can be disregarded You’ll never love someone ‘til you’re broken hearted Wars have never been won before they started You’ll never love someone ‘til you’re broken hearted Ooohhhh, ooohhhh, ooohhh, ahhhh

While You're Sleeping

ABK (ANYBODY KILLA) "Hatchet Warrior"
[Verse 1] Now I lay me down to sleep I pray my dreams don't slowly creep Caught up in a web with no escape Something the mind can't break unless you wide awake Have you ever had a nightmare, and been scared? Then woke up in the morning and forgot it was there Then the shit really happens like deja-vu But you sit back and act like you never knew The same situation happened in my life And I feel that I sould tell it cause the timing is right Now the only reason that I'm speakin' is cause I'm teachin' Thinkin' if I let it out my head'll stop tweakin' Mixed emotions caused from stress That reunite when you lay your head down to rest It's like creatures of the night leavin nothing but bad news And things about the future that might make you confused [Verse 2] I remember way back in the day At the age of 13 before moms passed away The dreams that I had people said weren't right Like the evilness of afterlife lurkin' in the night Candlelight blew out, bed stops shakin' Down on my knees prayin', askin' to be taken To another life where it's safer than this Not a dream but reality I hope for this wish But it never came true so I'm stuck in this place Just a native actin' crazy that keeps changin' his face Searchin' for the final answer so I can spread the word Now that you really see me I'm just askin' to be heard We all in this together, so they call us night crawlers Think the world's feelin' weary because we gettin' smarter Silohettes in the hallway, dead men holla Can't sleep at night cause the spirits won't allow ya [Blaze Ya Dead Homie Talking] You know bein' dead I remember thinkin' death would be horrible and terrifying Shit, I mean that's what everybody thinks But now, having died and shit I can now see everything Like every question the living have, I now know the answers to It's like I'm awake now, and living was just a dream [Verse 3] Call me the dream catcher, mother earth smoker Peyote pack piece pipes hallucinatin' toker Blessed with the wisdom that you see in my eyes Don't be surprised if you ever think you caught up inside Like the awakaning of life, or the passion of death That keeps you jumpin' up in shivers from ice cold breath Now you swear you're being followed everytime that you rest Or you feel sharp pains drillin' deep in your chest I don't expect anyone to believe if they don't want to But don't expect yourself to rest in peace when spirits haunt you Make your choice people dream it or not It's time to look into the situation we got Pinpoint the whole problem, get rid of all the anger Release all the stress before the world becomes a stranger Medicine man above your headboard with a dream catcher In the blood of the boogie man the warrior'll protect ya

MACY GRAY "The ID"
