Rickie Lee Jones lyrics - Traffic From Paradise

Beat Angels

Original and similar lyrics
Begging round the sun beaten streets I can't make me no connections Locals here no speak no English Where is my woman, well no one knows Ah well, some girls just have to leave in the night While you're fast asleep But I don't worry, I move in the dark There were lights, there were border lights I thought I heard that drum in the distance playing I saw the light, I crossed my heart and beat angels were there I woke in some hotel room I could hardly remember my name They were only sixteen years old I felt so lonely, I felt so ashamed I know sometimes I just have to leave In the night, while you're fast asleep But I don't worry, I move in the dark There were lights, there were border lights I thought I heard that drum in the distance playing I turned around, I crossed my heart and beat angels were there Don't you wonder where one goes wrong Is it somewhere in a foreign rain? We're sitting out the storm Every lamplight in town Man don't know when he's got it his grace Till beat angels come and take her away, beat angels, beat angels Well I crossed my heart and beat angels were there, beat angels?

Gypsy MC

JASON MRAZ
I'd like to give a shout out to all the g-y-ps And individualize because I am an MC. I can because I care, cause my family's there Cause I (cause I what?), cause I (cause I what?) 'cause I appreciate the mentality of music Saving all my sentences unless of course they're smoothly spoken Quiet type the kind to watch out for No man of the clan perpetrating the scam Sure, I'm the boy with the fallopian voice Straight from the sleeve of any wizard of choice I got the reason to be roamin' out the coverage area Send me the bill if all my lovin is scarin' ya Dare you to dream the way that I believe Got the skill to go commando in any fatigues I got the best damn band in the music scene I can also flow solo just let it be because, of the love Oh the self-realization is the if and and but 'cause you gotta know your name before you play-a the game Keep a level-headed check on your health and stay sane Address the tack on the track put the needle on the record and prepare for playback say jack, Could I buy another vowel I need another clue and I could also use a towel And how, goes the medium tempo Slaying all the teachers like the class of '84 Well down low you know that my fidelities go And I would never hurt a fly with my flip-flops on, got control Even keep a clean toilet bowl 2000 flushes blue and it's still going strong Do I do what I do for the sake of the song comin' through on the radio It's for you, this is proof my own story's a spoof I'll always be a gypsy or forever be aloof And if you never get to liking me it's okay too But you've made it this far so pay a toll at the booth and move on Yeah I got top score on Donkey Kong, move on Move on Move-a-move-a move-a move-a-move on True or false? I can be a sensitive man With sensible plans for the everyday woman And I can keep her eating out the palm of my hand Because the dope that we smoked was grown on my land The words I burn they don't come from a can The movie in my mind will be the winner at Cannes So take your chance, apply for full or part-time romance Cleverer the better, measure up to whatever Cause it don't matter how tall, how fat, or how small The equal opportunity is open to all The casting call the line forms down the hall All you need is ID that shows that you're legal But people with egos, well you better not go Cause' you know I don't need those And if there is a problem that I really oughta read Post it on the web care of R-K-O-P It's easy like me but a bit less the sleazy Go heavy on the melody and add a little cheese And if you can't stand the kitchen, get the hell out the heat To meet with the geek all you need is a Heart beat beat beat beat beat beat beat… And remember that fame, fame is Nothing more than loving someone And fortune is nothing more than loving what you do Is nothing more than loving you Well, I'm type A positive and just the way I like it Right away I'm satisfied with my food before I try it Can't deny it to save my life, I'm never lying To brave this mic without the same thing twice Is actually an act to staying up all night With the mood just right and the purchase of a flight From the west coast to the northern lights It's aurora borealis' company that I'm tight with Despite all the things that you've heard I'll admit that most is true and I'll be keeping my word By doing double-duty on a search for new verbs And I report to work early to deliver the worm With a back well covered by the buddies of ease There ain't no way in hell that I could ever catch a disease And breaking all the codes on the latest machines Well I will even let you download me for free I'm free …I'm free Just remember that fame, fame is Nothing more than loving someone And fortune is nothing more than loving what you do And in the eyes of love Love will overcome, love will overcome Will ohh Will over Over overcome It's true Cause look what you've done To me, to the gypsy

I'm The Man '91

ANTHRAX "Attack Of The Killer B's"
1991, always on the run Seven years ago we wrote this one Like Ernest and Julio, before it's time Sever years later and it's holding up fine Stupid motherf*ckers like to slug us and dis But there was no bandwagon when we wrote this 'Cause we stretched our boundaries We opened the door That no one attempted before Five guys in shorts, who gives a shit We do what we like, we don't care where we fit All you new jacks, what is it? You're kidding me, get off our dicks Now we're Anthrax and we take no shit And we don't care for writing hits The sound you hear is what we like And I'll steal your pop-tarts like I stole your (Psych!) Beat the beats the beats you beat The only thing harder's the smell of my feet So listen up close or you might get dissed Go drain the lizard or take a piss... Watch the beat I'm on your case, I'm in your face Kick you and your father back in place Step off sucker understand Don't you know I'm the man We got real def rhythms and fresh new jams If ya think we've got egos well we're just hams Scott plays stickball and likes to skate Frankie's never on time he's always... Drinking the drinks, the drinks I drank I put my money in the bank They cut their crack, they offer joints We don't do drugs do you get our meaning... Point, point, point, point, and watch the beat For a heavy metal band raps a different way But we like to be different and not cliche Well they say rap and metal can never mix Well all of them can suck our...(dicks) Fart the farts the farts he farted I pick my nose but I'm not retarded Like El Duce says Smell my anal vapor And wipe my butt, with your fuckin' face You stupid idiot... Sooooooo, as this rap is winding down It's plain to see I forgot my hat You know Anthrax is number one But we don't care we just wanna have...(party) Buff the buff the buff he buffed We are the kings and all shall buff We're like a diamond, this is forever And will remain the hardest ever!

Angels On Her Shoulders

JOSH RITTER "Josh Ritter"
She walked right in As time slowed down But not enough To keep me from ordering up Another round In a bottomless cup That I had found In the hopes of never waking up the Jukebox played An old country song About steel guitars And how he'll try his level best To get along In the same old bar Though friends gone wrong Well he once had love but I never got that far She must have angels on her shoulders Their light wherever she may be She says the angels do not know her I guess I'm the only one who sees. So I got my drink And my fix my rose But I need much more Then this powdered blue and rented tuxedo I need a line A-something she don't know Cause' she's probably heard them all a thousand times So I caught her eye For the next song And the waltz replaced The tango like she knows that I don't belong In these shoes I feel all wrong But that's just my pride, what have I got to lose? Well last call called But I didn't hear I was too busy looking At her across the remnants of my beer She stood to leave And then it all came clear That life without her was all I had to fear You must have angels on your shoulders Their light wherever you may be She asks me would I like to show her? I think I might be just the guy you need.

Sometimes It Be That Way

JEWEL "This Way"
Night with its shattered teeth Attempts to speak My pen is present but Courage left via the sink And I'm sorry I snuck up on you From behind I'm sorry not all My love letters did rhyme And I'm sorry that Jesus died for my sins And I swear to God It won't happen again And I'm sorry If it was my swerve that Tempted you to sway Oh well Sometimes it be that way And Romeo was A very nice man He said Jewel, I don't think You quite understand And I'm sorry if you had To explain it like this I'm sorry I was a point You were destined to miss And I'm sorry I spoke to you irreverently Down in the hollow By the old olive tree And I'm sorry If my heart breaking Ruined your day Oh well Sometimes It be that way I said Oh well, I got nothing Left to sell This love was a bell that Rang unheard in the air I was bound to find out That you didn't care Oh well Sometimes it be that way And Aphrodite with Her neon lamp Kissed Neptune They put her face On a stamp And I'm sorry I used it to mail A letter to you I'm sorry I'm glue and The rest bounces off of you And I'm sorry not even This jet's metal wings Could get across These simple things And I'm sorry If I ever sang Your name in vain Oh well Sometimes it be that way And Goldilocks Well she knew three bears They all ate oatmeal And tiptoed upstairs And I'm sorry I never got to Find you like this Sleeping like a baby And swaddled in bliss And I'm sorry for All the times I forgot to imply something In between the lines And I'm sorry If my heart breaking Ruined your day Oh well Sometimes it be that way I said Oh well, I got nothing Left to sell This love was a bell that Rang unheard in the air I was bound to find out That you didn't care Oh well Sometimes it be that way And shadow's long fingers They dance on the wall Electricity chases Its tail in the hall And I'm sorry If my arms to you Were just empty rooms I'm sorry I never could comfort you And I'm sorry St. Petersburg is A miserable town And I'm sorry If I am bringing you down And I'm sorry If I caused you pain Oh well Sometimes it be that way And flame licks the air With its silver tongue Night has many hands But I have just one And I'm sorry I walked in on you Unexpectedly I'm sorry I never served you Camomile tea And I'm sorry I didn't always have a match That could start A fire big enough For your heart to catch And I'm sorry If it was my swerve that Tempted you to sway Oh well Sometimes it be that way

Angels Unaware (Triology 3)

MICHAEL W. SMITH "I'll Lead You Home"
Maybe theres' a light in my soul Maybe it flickers like a neon sign outside an abandoned hotel Maybe there are things you just can't know But can you say there are no mysteries in the house you choose to dwell Maybe we are entertaining angels unaware Maybe there's a place where we will fly But some say God is dead like Nietzsche said And faith has made me a fool But maybe there is more than meets the eye Who's taht stranger there beside you? Don't be smug and don't be cruel Maybe we are entertaining angels unaware Battles of the heart and of the mind We stay caught in mental purgatory 'till our existence can be defined Meanwhile on the shores of parallel Ther may be a holy conference held somewhere Discussing all mankind Maybe we are entertaining angels unaware I say maybe we are entertaining angels unaware Angels unaware Soaring, somewhere, longing, reaching Searching, knowing, loving, caring Let me take you by the hand Lead you to the promised land And trust Him with your heart He'll lead you home
