Rickie Lee Jones lyrics - Traffic From Paradise

The Albatross

Original and similar lyrics
There, there is my ship Finally come in I see the mast rolling on the steps Over the garden wall I hear the sailor's call I see the albatross Over and down now I'll go home Home to my children I left behind Long ago with my mother the moon That's where my father is This broken heart is his Archipelago is turning, turning to strangers Here in the world, turning to strangers Oh, they hold on Here, here's where we live Here is a sea, my family We'll always be young as we've ever been Death will not part us again nearer to heaven than 10,000 ancestors who dream of me Well I hear you dreaming of me Yeah sometimes, dream of me!

The Only One

Billy Bragg "Workers Playtime"
Sometimes when you lose your way to me I think you don't care at all If you don't get here soon I'll tear that clock down from the wall Your family and friends don't understand They treat me so strange The book you said to read Well I have read but nothing's changed The clocks go forward the clocks go back Yet here I sit as if I were the only one And oh you cannot hear me Oh you cannot hear me Can anybody hear me out there He's up on his high horse again You're down in the park I'm left to fight my impulses alone here in the dark The chain that fell off my bike last night Is now wrapped round my heart Sometimes I think that Fate has been against us from the start I long to let our love run free Yet here I am a victim of geography And oh you cannot hear me Oh you cannot hear me Can anybody hear me out there She said kiss me or would you rather Live in a land where the soap won't lather And oh... You know you are the only one Yes you are the only one Yes you are the only one

Bitter

12 STONES
Mother mother can you hear me, i keep trying Just to find me all i know now, all you show me, Endless questions, hopeless ending This bitter pill is pushing me away and now i feel Like there's nothing left to say and i pretend to Look the other way but in the end will i be okay, Will i be okay Father father will you be there as i cry out Silent again turning colder, frozen deeper, Numb to this dream sleeping within Before i face another day, won't you let me stay asleep, Lost among the dreams that always comfort me And before i find my feet, won't you show me What i need, what i need to walk again

Call Letter Blues

BOB DYLAN "Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3: Rare Unreleased, 1961-1991"
Well, I walked all night long Listenin' to them church bells tone Yes, I walked all night long Listenin' to them church bells tone Either someone needing mercy Or maybe something I've done wrong Well, your friends come by for you I don't know what to say Well, your friends come by for you I don't know what to say I just can't face up to tell 'em Honey, you just went away Well, children cry for mother I tell them, 'Mother took a trip' Well, children cry for mother I tell them, 'Mother took a trip' Well, I walk on pins and needles I hope my tongue don't slip Well, I gaze at passing strangers In case I might see you Yes, I gaze at passing strangers In case I might see you But the sun goes around the heavens And another day just drives on through Way out in the distance I know you're with some other man Way out in the distance I know you're with some other man But that's alright, baby You know I always understand Call girls in the doorway All giving me the eye Call girls in the doorway All giving me the eye But my heart's just not in it I might as well pass right on by My ears are ringin' Ringin' like empty shells My ears are ringin' Ringin' like empty shells Well, it can't be no guitar player It must be convent bells
