SARAH JAFFE lyrics - Even Born Again

Even Born Again

Original and similar lyrics
I'm testament to old and new there's a thin red river running through and my eyes are like this golden gates holding testament to each love we face even born again The world over the world begun let us prostitute our mouths for fun be easy with your words and truth if I'm lost with God I'm lost with you I'm even born again The rain had come to make it new to clear our minds from all the dew the sky was watercolor thin and our mouths were open wide I'm even born again Pink and orange and blue and white I remember what the sky looked like I remember how your face looked too that was perfection even born again We're all orphans I think our hearts just feed and when death (dies to us?) it becomes this deed and I would gladly die for you selfishly but willingly I'm even born again

For Sasha

JOAN BAEZ "Honest Lullaby"
Here by my window in Germany A morning bird flies close to me On his wing I see a yellow star The lights are on in the factory The frost is hung on the linden tree And I remember where we are And I remember the holocaust I remember all we lost The families torn and the borders crossed And I sing of it now for Sasha A young German officer lies in his bed Bandages from toe to head A prisoner of the camps draws nigh If you are Abel and I am Cain Forgive me from my bed of pain I know not why we die It was I who ordered the building burned The job was over and as I turned A father and his son Caught in the flames high above the ground From cradled arms the boy looked down One leap and their lives were done And I remember the holocaust I remember all we lost The children gone and the borders crossed And I sing of it now for Sasha You in frozen streets of Heidelberg Your youth unbearded takes form in words And the ghosts of the past are kind For this was your university The years were long but the spirits free And your river runs to the Rhine The smoke filled taverns that you once roamed With the discontented who'd stayed at home You must have whiskey or you'll die The beer garden under the old chateau Our faces now in the candle glow See the memories how they shine But you remember the holocaust You remember all we lost The families torn and the borders crossed And we'll sing of it now for Sasha

Born And Raised

ALEXISONFIRE "Old Crows / Young Cardinals"
All blossoms die in the light of our new culture Find your belief in that which cannot be discovered Countless lessons lie in every fever dream A million voices asking, what does it all mean? I’ve lost all direction I’ve lost all my direction And now I wish, that I would have believed Could have believed Escape, escape Nature’s indifferent hand Retreat, retreat To the bliss of our creation We were born and raised To live beyond The heft and weight of a world undone Like a bird from the north Our hearts will roam in search of warmth Two hands come together to pray for greater yields Two poles of a compass guided by a field In the mind of every man, two ghosts dance Was this place made, or was it here by chance? I’ve lost all direction I’ve lost all my direction And now I wish, that I would have believed Could have believed Escape, escape Nature’s indifferent hand Retreat, retreat To the bliss of our creation We were born and raised To live beyond The heft and weight of a world undone Like a bird from the north Our hearts will roam in search of warmth Uncountable numbers written in new fallen snow I can hear the claws of the beast tapping at my window Nihilist sleeps and in dreams he sees god’s face Realize even disbelief requires a leap of faith From birth to death, we search for what’s yet to be known We and hope and pray and ask, but we are never shown Born and raised to live beyond The heft and weight of a world undone Like a bird from the north Our hearts will roam in search of warmth We were born and raised

Face In A Crowd

Gary Lewis The Playboys
FACE IN A CROWD Gary Lewis the Playboys She doesn't know my name She couldn't feel the same Got no fortune, got no fame But she's not to blame 'Cause I'm a guy who's very commonplace I was born to be another face in a crowd I met her yesterday Couldn't think of what to say So she turned walked away It happens every day 'Cause I'm the kind who'd never find a place I was born to be another face in a crowd A guy like me never has, has a chance 'Cause I don't rate a second glance There's millions just like me Waitin' for a chance to be Someone who is worthy of A young girl's love (repeat fade): I'm so tired of bein' commonplace I don't wanna be another face in a crowd

Are You There

AMERICA "Harbor"
Written by Dewey Bunnell, 1977 Found on Harbor and Highway. The day we lost our voice with little choice, I can't explain An act of agony And someone told me too that it's true when you call aloud It's only destiny Or is it mystery But then we came around and sang our song and acted proud And posed for memory We made a cry to the underground Are you there I looked and saw that they were still around But do you care I drank a little bit, so underlit to see it now The show was never seen And all the time I lost is never lost It's only thumbing through eternity We made a cry to the underground Are you there I looked and saw that they were still around But do you care Who are you going to see What are you going to be You made a cry to the underground Are you there I looked and saw that they were still around But do you care Are you there (Are you there) Are you there (Are you there) Are you there (Are you there) Are you there (Are you there) Are you there (Are you there) Are you there (Are you there) ...

It Coulda Been Worse

LYFE JENNINGS "I Still Believe"
[TALKING:] Yea, Yo you always complaining about how bad stuff is. Complaining about the light bill, hey its people that dont got lights, you know? So I wanna tell everybody listening man embrace your struggle cause no matter what man true story it could've been worse [VERSE 1:] I was going through some changes in my life. Cussing and complaining every night. Telling God the way he treating me aint right, and how I dont deserve it. A voice from some where came to me and said you got the audacity to fix your mouth to disrespect, how soon we forget. [HOOK:] And he said remember when you were sick and you got better, remember I put your family back together, remember I could have cut you off forever. So no matter how bad you think it hurts. [CHORUS:] It could've been worse, you could've been dead. You could've been paralyzed, confined to a bed. You could've lost everything, you should've lost everything. But somebodys watching you, and gave you another chance. [VERSE 2:] Its so funny how we think we got it rough, when there are babies who got mothers hooked on drugs, and this depression got some folks loosing their home. They spent their whole lives saving for. It's better in comparison, tell me you'll switch places with them, you only got to God to complain but have you ever went to him to just say thanks? So no matter how bad you think it hurts [HOOK:] And remember he didnt let that disease take you, remember he didnt even get a thank you, he love you just to hate you so no matter how bad you think it hurts [CHORUS x3]
