SHOOTER JENNINGS lyrics - The Other Life

The Other Life

Original and similar lyrics
This life is a dream When I wake up I feel your face smiling over at me. And you tell me that you love me, And I light up when you touch me and this life is all that I need. But heaven was just illusion One hell a better conclusion To this life with you. So I stay out late at night Tryin' to hock a room with my guitar And sing my "poor me's" at another lonesome bar Unrehearsed, diyin' of thirst and cursed with the other life. And sometimes I sit and look at old pictures and air another unanswered prayer But I won't look too long 'cause I'm just not that strong so I pretend for a moment you still care. And like these pictures that life would frame There ain't a song that I would not trade for one minute with you. So I stay out late at night Tryin' to hock a room with my guitar And sing my "poor me's" at another lonesome bar Unrehearsed, diyin' of thirst and cursed with the other life. Yeah the other life. So I stay out late at night Tryin' to hock a room with my guitar And sing my "poor me's" at another lonesome bar Unrehearsed, diyin' of thirst and cursed with the other life. Oh the other life With the other life.

Begin Again

JASON GRAY "Love Will Have The Final Word"
This one goes out to you If you gave all you had and it wasn't enough It goes out to you If you're afraid you've failed everybody you've loved It goes out to you If the ties that bind are coming undone And you're so tired that you wanna give up There's never been a night so long… There's never been a life too far gone When you come to the end, you can begin again This one goes out to you When you got the call and it wasn't good news It goes out to you When there's nothing more that you can do It goes out to you When everything sad isn't coming untrue And every dream you chased got away from you There's never been a night so long… There's never been a life too far gone When you come to the end, you can begin again It's never too late for a new start If you give God the pieces of your broken heart When you come to the end, you can begin again Arise, my love, the winter's past, the spring has come! He makes all things beautiful in time After the fire, what remains is the love that will not change And makes all things beautiful in time It's never too late for a new start No matter how your life's been torn apart When you're at the end, you can begin again There's never been a night so long… There's never been a life too far gone When you come to the end, you can begin again It's never too late for a new start If you give God the pieces of your broken heart When you come to the end, you can begin again Oh, when you come to the end, you can begin again

Landfall

JIMMY BUFFETT "Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes"
Now what do they do if I just sailed away Who the hell really compelled me to leave today Runnin' low on stories is what made it a ball What would they do if made no landfall I lived half my life in eight by five room Just cruisin' to the sound of the big diesel boom It's not close quarters that would make me snap It's just dealing with the daily unadulterated crap Sail away for a month at a time, Sail away I've got to recharge mind Then you'll find me back at it again Oh I love the smell of fresh snapper fried lite What'd you say, pouilly fuisse could round out the night The mid morning watch is the best time to look Oh what would they do if I wrote the big book 'Cause I've seen incredible things in my year Somedays were laughter, others were tears If I had it all to do over again I'd just get myself drunk and I'd jump right back in Sail away, that's the way I survive Sail away, that's just no shuck and jive It just makes my whole life come alive The wind whistled threw the cool rigging at night Crazy crowds boogie to the sound and the lights down in he's just havin' a ball What would he do on another landfall What would they do if I made no landfall Oh what would they do if I flew to Nepal What would I do if I met Lucille Ball Tryin' to make a little sense of it all Just tryin' to make a little sense of it all

One Last Chance

MONTELL JORDAN "Let's Ride"
1 - How can I fill this empty space when Suddenly you're gone? And where can I find the strength Each day I Need to carry on? Oh, tell me when will I smile again Will I ever make it through Wishing that I had one last chance To say I love you Baby I know I was crazy Cuz I found out that lately My life hasn't been much fun Living all alone-please save me Will you tell me what must I do To bring you Back into my arms where you belong Loving me yesh, or is it too late? Repeat 1 Oh, darling catch me cuz I'm falling At night your name I'm calling It echoes off the wall, cuz you're not here at all You're leaving left me Without the arms that kept me Now finally All the things I never got to say Fade away and oh I fall down on my knees at night Asking God to make it right But now it's too late (It's much too late) I made a big mistake (I was wrong, I was wrong) So now you're loving someone new And I'm the fool you're toasting to If I could play God for a minute Then my life, you'd be right back here in it Repeat 1 Repeat 1

These Blues

JJ CALE "To Tulsa And Back"
A hundred miles is not too far Unless you have to walk Life, it seems, is like a dream Until you have to talk Don't wonder for a moment If you win or lose Just stop and stay, and watch the day And listen to these blues If it don't work for you, girl Put it off your mind If you drink anew from the well You find the bottom line A fancy woman told me John, you're bound to do this So I just stay and watch the day And sing these lonesome blues The blues is not a song you sing It is a way of life I've hung around them bar rooms, girl Almost all my life The men, they all are gamblers They take all they can use So if I find no peace of mind I'll settle for these blues

Guitar Man

JERRY REED "The Unbelievable Guitar And Voice"
Well, I quit my job down at the car wash, Left my mama a goodbye note, By sundown I'd left Kingston, With my guitar under my coat, I hitchhiked all the way down to Memphis, Got a room at the YMCA, For the next three weeks I went hauntin' them nightclubs, Just lookin' for a place to play, Well, I thought my pickin' would set 'em on fire, But nobody wanted to hire a guitar man. Well, I nearly 'bout starved to death down in Memphis, I run outta money and luck, So I bought me a ride down to Macon, Georgia, On a overloaded poultry truck, I thumbed on down to Panama City, Started checkin' out some o' them all night bars, Hopin' I could make myself a dollar, Makin' music on my guitar, I got the same old story at them all night piers, There ain't no room around here for a guitar man We don't need a guitar man, son So I slept in the hobo jungles, Roamed a thousand miles of track, Till I found myself in Mobile Alabama, At a club they call Big Jack's, A little four-piece band was jammin', So I took my guitar and I sat in, I showed 'em what a band would sound like, With a swingin' little guitar man. Show 'em, son If you ever take a trip down to the ocean, Find yourself down around Mobile, Make it on out to a club called Jack's, If you got a little time to kill, Just follow that crowd of people, You'll wind up out on his dance floor, Diggin' the finest little five-piece group, Up and down the Gulf of Mexico, Guess who's leadin' that five-piece band, Well, wouldn't ya know, it's that swingin' little guitar man.
