Skin Deep

Original and similar lyrics
Many people tell you that they're your friend You believe them You need them For what's round the river bend Make sure that you're recieving the signals they send Cos brother, you've only got two hands to lend Maybe there's someone who makes you weep And some nights loom up ahead When you're asleep Some days there's things on your mind you should keep Sometimes, it's tougher to look than to leap Better watch out for the skin deep Better watch out for the skin deep (Better watch out) Watch out for the skin deep (Better watch out) Watch out for the skin deep Better watch out for the skin deep One day the track that you're climbing gets steep Your emotions are frayed And your nerves are starting to creep Just remember the days As long as the time that you keep Brother, you better watch out for the skin deep Better watch out for the skin deep Better watch out for the skin deep (Better watch out) Watch out for the skin deep (Better watch out) Watch out for the skin deep Better watch out for the skin deep (Better watch out) Watch out for the skin deep (Better watch out) Watch out for the skin deep Better watch out for the skin deep

Opaque

FEEDER
It mkaes no difference when it's fun Senses shot away who gives a damn Who I am I'm opaque Left to stand out in the crowd Insecurities come flooding in, the hooks are in But I'm OK Don't you see we're in skin deep Cut me free again and watch me bleed Turning frequencies inside Find the perfect place to be alive, finalize I'm opaque Substitute the way you feel Open up your mind run different modes Break colour codes On my way (Chorus) Don't you see we're in skin deep Cut me free again and watch me bleed Don't you see we're in skin deep Cut me free again and watch me bleed Drawing circles on a twisted mouth that frowns again today... We're finding pleasure in a life so short, but that's OK Lift the world right out from me Break the cable find the everglow You never know I'm opaque (repeat chorus X3) Don't you see we're in skin deep Cut me free again and watch me bleed Don't you see we're in skin deep Cut me free again and watch me bleed Don't you see we're in skin deep Cut me free again and watch me bleed

Between The Sheets

ALEXANDRA BURKE "Heartbreak On Hold"
I can make it better babe I could wipe your tears away I can make you better babe If you let me I could be that better place I could be your everyday I could be your saving grace If you let me [Chorus:] The only thing between us should be the sheets I wanna feel your heart beat I wanna know you better than me, skin deep The only thing between us should be the sheets I wanna feel your chest breathe I wanna know you better than me, skin deep I could be that thing you need If you just believe in me It's everything I wanna be, if you let me Baby let me kiss your face I promise I won't run away Say bye bye to all the pain If you let me [Chorus:] The only thing between us should be the sheets I wanna feel your heart beat I wanna know you better than me, skin deep The only thing between us should be the sheets I wanna feel your chest breathe I wanna know you better than me, skin deep Turn the light off to ya turn the light on Lay me down till I'm coming on up You know which way to go so baby don't stop If you're going down low then take me to the top Whoa, oho, [Chorus:] The only thing between us should be the sheets I wanna feel your heart beat I wanna know you better than me, skin deep The only thing between us should be the sheets I wanna feel your chest breathe I wanna know you better than me, skin deep I can make you better babe I could wipe your tears away

Hold Up

MC Eiht "My Neighborhood"
EIHT: We sending this one out right here To all the young thug and young hustlers out there You know I'm sayin', grown up with their moms strugglin' In the hood yo' I'm sayin', ya know how it is Trying to keep it tight, you know I'm sayin' Geah Born and raised a black youth, no happy days My moms and pops went they separate ways Now she solo with half the dough, and three kids No house, a damn tight situation we in Hit the streets to look for work and pay So her kids can have it better than she had one day Try to teach me some rules, Get A's in school Keep your head up high and don't run with the fools That was the lesson, always listen to moms Bible she totin, always quotin from Psalms Young but I'm knowin' the right thang to do Know the things to say when times is blue Times is hard and really unfortunate I'm young and I really don't like the shit But I dream nice things when I sleep at night When I grow up I'll make everything alright Sing SOULTRE': I know it's hard sometimes But if you can make a way, you need to hold up I know a better way And if you can wait today it'll be alright... EIHT: Now I'm 15, my life done hit a split screen What used to be a good kid struck a bad gene Bad dreams, young thugs and crime scenes Skip school, saggin' my jeans and blow green My moms don't know where I get the shit from If you keep trippin' you know the outcome Laid up somewhere, or in jail Makin' collect calls tryin' to make bail Hell, and you know how I struggle for the cheddar Before I give it away better get it together My guilty conscience sayin' not no listen The other have tellin' me, keep a good intention Aw shit, a nigga need a mind of his own Too much to deal with, I really don't feel shit Young thug ready to take on the world Who made my life take such a twirl C'mon Chorus... Now my situation's changed, no chains remain Now I try to check out the game and cause pain Long live the days of homeboys and straps Gang of tombstones for the ones that caught caps Make snaps off raps, reminiscin' of days Good part is shot up while 'More Bounce' plays Missin the days sometimes, but keeps my eyes on the future Keep my hands on my heat cause niggas might shoot ya Rob a nigga blind, just like Stevie I used to do the same when a nigga was greedy But my come-up was wrong, flipped it, now it's strong Now I clocks snaps, keep the street shit in my songs Trying to make it up on a stage from doin' a bid Trying to make a better way like she did for my kids Right now watch out, keep my nose to the grind Yeah boy, this world is mine Geah Chorus...

Evil

THE JEFF HEALEY BAND "Cover To Cover"
It's a long way from home, Can't sleep at night. Call on your telephone; Something just ain't right. That's evil, evil is going on wrong. I want to warn you brother, You better watch your happy home. You make it to your house, Knock on the front door, Run 'round to the back; You'll catch him just before he goes. That's evil, evil is going on. I have warned you brother, You better watch your happy home. If you call on the telephone And she answers long and slow, Grab the first thing smoking And you have to haul her home. That's evil, evil is going on wrong. I have warned you brother, You better watch your happy home.
