RUFUS WAINWRIGHT lyrics - Want One

14th Street

Original and similar lyrics
You've got my lost brother's soul My dear mother's eyes A brown horse's mane And my uncle's name You walked me down 14th Street For the doctor to meet after thoughts of the grave In the home of the brave and of the weak But why'd you have to break all my heart Couldn't you have saved a little bit of it? Why'd you have to break all my heart? Couldn't you have saved a minor part? I could have clipped and saved and planted in the garden Damn you guess I'll have to get a new one I'd love to sit and watch you drink With the reins to the world, gripping a smoke Vaguely missing link Don't ever change you hungry little bashful hound I got the sheep, poor little Bo Peep Has lost and filed for grounds. But why'd you have to break all my heart I could have ripped apart and thrown into the river Wonder if there's hearts that will deliver Don't ever change, don't ever worry Because I'm coming back home tomorrow To 14th Street where I won't hurry And where I'll learn how to save, not just borrow And they'll be rainbows and we will finally know

Mirrors

ANTHEM LIGHTS
Aren't you somethin' to admire Cause your shine is somethin' like a mirror And I can't help but notice You reflect in this heart of mine If you ever feel alone and The glare makes me hard to find Just know that I'm always Parallel on the other side Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul I can tell you there's no place we couldn't go Just put your hand on the glass I'll be tryin' to pull you through You just gotta be strong I don't wanna lose you now I'm lookin' right at the other half of me The vacancy that sat in my heart Is a space that now you hold Show me how to fight for now And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy Comin' back into you once I figured it out You were right here all along It's like you're my mirror My mirror staring back at me I couldn't get any bigger With anyone else beside me And now it's clear as this promise That we're making Two reflections into one Cause it's like you're my mirror My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me Aren't you somethin', an original Cause it doesn't seem really as simple And I can't help but stare, cause I see truth somewhere in your eyes I can't ever change without you You reflect me, I love that about you And if I could, I Would look at us all the time Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul I can tell you there's no place we wouldn't go Put your hand on the glass I'll be tryin' to pull you through You just gotta be strong Cause I don't wanna lose you now I'm lookin' right at the other half of me The vacancy that sat in my heart Is a space that now you hold Show me how to fight for now And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy Comin' back into you once I figured it out You were right here all along It's like you're my mirror My mirror staring back at me I couldn't get any bigger With anyone else beside me And now it's clear as this promise That we're making Two reflections into one Cause it's like you're my mirror My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me I'm starting with the man in the mirror, oh I'm asking him to change his ways And no message could have been any clearer If you wanna make the world a better place Take a look at yourself and make a change And make a change Cause I don't wanna lose you now I'm lookin' right at the other half of me The vacancy that sat in my heart Is a space that now you hold Show me how to fight for now And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy Comin' back into you once I figured it out You were right here all along Oh, it's like you're my mirror My mirror staring back at me I couldn't get any bigger With anyone else beside me And now it's clear as this promise That we're making Two reflections into one Cause it's like you're my mirror My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

Further Away

Iq
Time takes my time I, here to myself, hold the silence in Torn from my hand So heavy now you're a world away Though they rage, these little lies I've grown so cold And will I see you When I turn around? Here I'll remain Bound, ever bound, I am left to drown In this space, I raise myself And move somehow To rearrange the brittle bones of you Now it's done And I resolve to make no sound So they're come Are they the ones Who'll take me down? Don't you cry precious tears for me Passion killers and Stocking fillers abound When someone takes a dive Surface breakers and Undertakers surround All but the fairest faces alive Tension seekers and Public speakers defend These they have come to judge Seasonned liars and False messiahs descend To lay on the feeling touch And I've seen too much Day by day and I don't know why After all, don't we matter the same? Reach for the sky Don't break my heart Are there no angels, only us? Look how they've changed me See what they've done It has begun Now as I lay me down to sleep If I should die before I wake Don't let me fail, don't ever break Roll me out where I am Let me in 'cause I've seen too much Day by day and I don't know why After all, maybe no-one's to blame And it's not the same I get this feeling from no-one else Show me now Are you out of my head? Breaking borders, the chaos of lies Caught in the terrible rain from the skies Shaken as I am, her faith is as thin She can remember the moment of madness so well How many died right where they fell? I was the first in that sinister bed Closing the shutters and cutting the thread Shackled and fettered I know who you are Bleeding the heart and the mind as the rivers run red Somebody said, Here is Hell Go wherever you can be And live for the day It's only wear and tear Doesn't matter anymore If I'm losing you You're always everywhere It's no wonder I'm afraid of making amends And shattering the fear Now it's happening I know it's going to come So dark inside of here What have they done? Stay with me Can you say where you are? I'll be there, I'll do it, just tell me I'll never let go Never let go

It Yo

L.G. Wise
Chorus It ain't yo cash yo, it ain't yo flow yo I thought you should know, It ain't yo benz, it aint yo ice It ain't yo, dough yo, another lost soul Up at the crossroads, it ain't yo chains, it ain't yo rings(?) It ain't yo ice yo, it ain't yo bling yo, I thought you should know It ain't that drop top E-class, with them rims yo Another lost soul, up at the crossroads Regulatin' up in this thang while you suckers hatin up in this thang You might as well respect the game 'Cuz it's time to see a change Talk about your flows and your clothes And all your hos and your doughs What about the ones with the holes in their souls Only Heaven knows, how many of them kiled with the flow And how you done lived with their dough And with the sexcapdaes, and the escalades and the navigades, you know Talkin about stayin away from the steel or getin killed While you lookin at us harder than hard, like we ain't real So I don't do this for the fame, and I don't do this for the game Everything I do is from the heart, to see a change in Jesus name That's why I'm prayin for my comrads, speek the word to this generation Don't be decieved by this divination, or be fallen to this fornication Chorus Chose God over pleasure, tell me where would I be Shorties listen to this music, livin ghetto fantisies And think they thuggin but really buggin On the block where they sell, now theyself is all they huggin While they locked in the cell, See all the homies rollin thick, so they know that they want that Got 'em lost in the hood with 20 to life and cant come back Before you rollin like a 6-4, and you hittin a ditch Before you come up in this thang like you gettin with this And realizin it's a war, and go ahead and inlist Too many people livin they life and never knowin the risk And yo, it's spiritual, you cats that's fightin lyrical I'm prayin for a change, but it's gonna take a miricle It ain't that blow, it ain't that dank, it ain't that thai It ain't that stank, it aint that No Limit tank Or that Cash Money that rule, don't you know that Christ is rulin this fool Runnin around and thinkin you cool, 'cuz you got your tattoos But you ain't got a clue Chorus For all the ones that's locked down You claim you spreadin them love But on the garbage that you spit, your message makin them thugs And sendin them there, believe in the Bible I can't swear Now how you care for their souls, all you want is girls and plenty of dough It's like every other city you go and on these videos Every time I turn around, it's the same nasty thing yo Now back to the facts I'm steady dumpin on ya'll You wanna ball until you fall, on Judgment Day you gonna crawl Don't get me wrong shortie, I know you runnin from the call That's why I'm prayin for you, Dogg, you can't hide from my Lord Like I told you before, It ain't yo ice, it ain't yo bling It ain't yo drop top E-class while you rollin on them thangs Chorus

Valentine's Day

JAMES TAYLOR "Never Die Young"
Beneath the tide the fishes glide, fin to fin and side to side. For fishy love has now begun, fishy love, finny fun. Paper moon, paper heart, pink balloon, work of art. Al Capone, Bugs Moran, Valentine's Day. Bootleg gin, porkpie hat, dew Drop Inn, dirty rat, through the heart Cupid's dart, Valentine's Day. Oh, day to repay the one that you love, Gentlemen, take off your hats as I speak thereof. Just a brief break from the push and the shove, we may go a few rounds without boxing gloves. Land your punch, I stand my ground, we break for lunch and a second round. We set them up, we knock them down, Valentine's Day. Me and you, you and him, him and her, us and them, we keep score love as war, Valentine's Day. I lost my teeth, I lost my hair, I lost my mind, you don't care. Love is war, all is fair on Valentine's Day.

Brand New Colony

Postal Service, The "Give Up"
I'll be the grapes fermented, bottled and served with the table set in my finest suit like a perfect gentleman. I'll be the fire escape that's bolted to the ancient brick where you will sit and contemplate your day. I'll be the waterwings that save you if you start drowning in an open tab when your judgement's on the brink. I'll be the phonograph that plays your favorite albums back as your lying there drifting off to sleep. I'll be the platform shoes and undo what heredity's done to you: you won't have to strain to look into my eyes. I'll be your winter coat buttoned and zipped straight to the throat with the collar up so you won't catch cold. I want to take you far away from the cynics in this town and kiss you on the mouth. we'll cut our bodies free from the tethers of this scene, start a brand new colony where everything will change, we'll give ourselves new names, identities erased. the sun will heat the grounds under our bare feet in this brand new colony. everything will change...
