SHOOTER JENNINGS lyrics - The Other Life

15 Million Light-Years Away

Original and similar lyrics
Well we tried, and tried to get it right Come close, a few times too But lunatics run the asylum And animals run the zoo Criminals are heroes, police break the law And philosophers are all finding out They don't know nothing at all, no [Chorus:] One day we're gonna get ourselves together Just when, I don't know, I can't say It may be tomorrow, it could be today Or 15 million light-years away 15 million light-years away The man who makes the rules, Throws a smile your way and he Lies to you once again When right is wrong, and wrong is right The whole damn world is in a spin [Chorus] The world ain't what it should be Humanity ain't humane. And the good lord give the free will To make the same mistakes again Well I've tried, I've tried to get it right Come close, a few time too With that in mind it seems very strange There's one thing, maybe two Lunatics run the asylum And animals run the zoo.... [Chorus]

If It Doesn't Come Naturally, Leave It

AL STEWART "Year Of The Cat"
Nothing that's forced can ever be right If it doesn't come naturally, leave it That's what she said as she turned out the light And we bent our backs as slaves of the night Then she lowered her guard and showed me the scars She got from trying to fight Saying oh, you'd better believe it. Well I'm up to my neck in the crumbling wreckage Of all that I wanted from life When I looked for respect all I got was neglect Though I swallowed the line as a sign of the times But dealing a jack from the back of the pack They said-"You lose again" Oh, I said, who needs it? Well don't get me wrong now I tried to get on With the jokers that got in my way And I put on a smile and I tried all the while to be straight But they just wanted more all the time and I'm sure That you know what I mean when I say That I'm sick of the touch and there's only so much you can take. Well nothing that's real is ever for free And you just have to pay for it sometime She said it before, she said it to me I suppose she believed there was nothing to see But the same old four imaginary walls She built for living inside I said oh, you just can't mean it Well there was never a doubt that she had to get out she was just looking around for a way In the pit of the night there was nowhere to hide any more She was out on a limb, she was reaching for things That she wanted, but just couldn't say And she had to be sure that she wouldn't get caught like before. Well nothing that's forced can ever be right If it doesn't come naturally, leave it That's what she said as she turned out the light And she may have been wrong, and she may have been right But I woke with the frost, and noticed she'd lost The veil that covered her eyes I said oh, you can leave it.

Diamonds & Rust

JOAN BAEZ "Diamonds & Rust"
Well I'll be damned Here comes your ghost again But that's not unusual It's just that the moon is full And you happened to call And here I sit Hand on the telephone Hearing a voice I'd known A couple of light years ago Heading straight for a fall As I remember your eyes Were bluer than robin's eggs My poetry was lousy you said Where are you calling from? A booth in the midwest Ten years ago I bought you some cufflinks You brought me something We both know what memories can bring They bring diamonds and rust Well you burst on the scene Already a legend The unwashed phenomenon The original vagabond You strayed into my arms And there you stayed Temporarily lost at sea The Madonna was yours for free Yes the girl on the half-shell Would keep you unharmed Now I see you standing With brown leaves falling around And snow in your hair Now you're smiling out the window Of that crummy hotel Over Washington Square Our breath comes out white clouds Mingles and hangs in the air Speaking strictly for me We both could have died then and there Now you're telling me You're not nostalgic Then give me another word for it You who are so good with words And at keeping things vague Because I need some of that vagueness now It's all come back too clearly Yes I loved you dearly And if you're offering me diamonds and rust I've already paid

Blown Wide Open

BIG WRECK "In Loving Memory Of..."
So now she's on her way Home from work alone for dinner Close the door to the microwave Underneath that phone that just won't ring - Sittin' on the bus Stare a hole right through the floor Listening to the squeaky door Open and close at a stop that's never fine - They say if it's well enough Just leave it alone and they would never Think to call your bluff The lie believed 'til your standing all exposed - (chorus) Oh you'll confide And all those fools will slide Between you and I (yeah) Between you and I - I've seen that look before On someone else Years ago and it's come Around again - Excuse me while I place A blame on you the game has conjured now - And it never was your fault The wind just seemed to carry the spit your way - (chorus) My time is spent So all those years can blend Between you and I - (chorus) Why'd you confide? Then all your friends can slide Between you and I Between you and I Between you and I Between you and I - Well the effort to forget And nature's moving far too slow The effort to forget I still recall the effort to forget

Galaxy Song

Clint Black "D'lectrified"
When you抮e feeling inside out and insecure, and life keeps getting you down. When all life抯 daily worriesç urry through your head. You don抰 want to even ç et up. You just lie around in bed. When you feel you just can抰 take it anymore And you wonder what on Earth it is all forYour love life抯 like a war zone Your TV抯 on the blinkIt抯 enough to drive a drinking man to stop and take a think 稪ust ç œemember that you standing on a planet that抯 evolving,revolving at 900 miles an hour.It抯 orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it抯 reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power. The Sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see are moving at a million miles a day. In an outer spiral orb, at 40,000 miles an hour, of the Galaxy we call the Milky Way Our Galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars. It抯 a 100,000 light years side to side It bulges in the middle 16,000 light years thick, but out by us it抯 just 3,000 light years wide. We抮e 30,000 light years from galactic central point. We go round every 200,000,000 years. And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions in this amazing and expanding Universe. Our Universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding in all of the directions it can whiz As fast as it can go, the speed of light you know, 12,000,000 miles a minute, and that抯 the fastest speed there is! So, remember when you抮e feeling very small and insecure how amazingly unlikely is your birth. And pray that there抯 intelligent life somewhere up in space, 慶ause I抦 afraid that we抳e been cheated here on Earth.
