SYLEENA JOHNSON lyrics - Chapter I: Love, Pain & Forgiveness

You Ain't Right

Original and similar lyrics
Lonely nights followed by absent day You found it so hard to be with me My mind tells me you've got evil ways But my heart's fell in love so easily. And I can't find the strength to tell you we're through And I can't find the hate to fool around on you I know there's something else that you've been holding on to. But, baby, when I'm gone what you gonna do? You know you ain't right, staying out all night Smoking with you friends, ain't never got no ends You know you ain't right, things just ain't the same When you're with Mary Jane, is she the one to blame? Love with you don't happen no more You can't even hardly get it up If you don't want me, then what are you here for? Do what you gotta do, just don't lie to me no more. You know you ain't right, staying out all night Smoking with you friends, ain't never got no ends You know you ain't right, things just ain't the same When you're with Mary Jane, is she the one to blame? You know you ain't right, staying out all night Smoking with your friends, ain't never got no ends You know you ain't right, can't look me eye to eye When you're with Chocolat 'ti, your ass is always high. When will you hold me again It's got to be me or your friend If I was a dealer, then would I win back all the love that we had from way back when. You know you ain't right, staying out all night Smoking with you friends, ain't never got no ends You know you ain't right, things just ain't the same When you're with Mary Jane, is she the one to blame?

Dance Hall Crashers "Purr"

Basement Apt.

Sarah Harmer
You live out where the street ends in a basement apt. with one of your friends and the tap drips all night water torture in the sink The furnace is burning but it's still cold i think I can smell the bleach that they use in the hall but it can't clean the dirt off of me It's seeping under the door in across the floor it's starting to hurt Everytime I breathe Everytime I try to leave Everytime I breathe Now the toaster sticks and the empties are piled I haven't been up the stairs in awhile now I gotta wash the sheets on my bed I gotta watch the things that go unsaid God I wish we'd leave it at this And every evening you open the door You come down There's nothing like watching tv all night underground and no one is watching me slide below street level barely alive Now we live out where the street ends in a basement apt. just like our friends We always said that we were different but you know now that we weren't 'cause there's holes in all the bottles and my lungs hurt

Willie Moore

JOAN BAEZ "Very Early Joan"
Willie Moore was a king, his age twenty-one, He courted a damsel fair; O, her eyes was as bright as the diamonds every night, And wavy black was her hair. He courted her both night and day, 'Til to marry they did agree; But when he came to get her parents consent, They said it could never be. She threw herself in Willie Moore's arms, As of time had done before; But little did he think when they parted that night, Sweet Anna he would see no more. It was about the tenth of May, The time I remember well; That very same night, her body disappeared In a way no tongue could tell. Sweet Annie was loved both far and near, Had friends most all around; And in a little brook before the cottage door, The body of sweet Anna was found. She was taken by her weeping friends, And carried to her parent's room, And there she was dressed in a gown of snowy white, And laid her in a lonely tomb. Her parents now are left all alone, One mourns while the other one weeps; And in a grassy mound before the cottage door, The body of sweet Anna still sleeps. (Willie Moore never spoke that anyone heard, And at length from his friends did part, And the last heard from him, he'd gone to Montreal, Where he died of a broken heart.) This song was composed in the flowery West By a man you may never have seen; O, I'll tell you his name, but it is not in full,

Going Down To Cuba

JACKSON BROWNE "Time The Conqueror"
Sometimes I get to feeling low Wish I could just pick up and go somewhere new Change my point of view Maybe somewhere I don't know Toss the idea to and fro Not sure what makes it come and go There it is again: sweet music on the wind Over the Gulf of Mexico I'm going to down to Cuba someday soon Following that Caribbean moon It's been too long since I've been there I'm going down to Cuba with my friends Down where the rhythm never ends Where women wear gardenias in their hair People will tell you it's not easy You're not supposed to go, they say They say that Cuba is the enemy I'm going down there anyway I'm going down to Cuba to see my friends Down where the rhythm never ends No problem is too difficult to solve Yeah times are tough down there it's true But you know they're going to make it through They make such continuous use of the verb to resolve They've got to deal with that embargo Enough to drive any country insane They might not know the things you and I know They do know what to do in a hurricane Maybe I'll go through Mexico Old Jesse Helms don't have to know Anyway all the allies of the USA Travel to Cuba everyday I'm going down to Cuba to see my friends Down where the rhythm never ends Where by comparison my trouble will just unravel I'm North American, you know Don't like to hear where I can't go Free people will insist on the freedom to travel I'm going to drink the rum mojito And walk out on the Malecon In one hand a Monte Cristo And in the other an ice cream cone I'm going down to Cuba with my band We're going to formulate a plan Whereby we obtain that cultural permission If I told you once I told you thrice It'll put a smile on your face to see a Chevrolet with a Soviet transmission I bet the country cast a spell And there are things I think of still Like the beauty of that woman that spoke to me In the Hotel Nacional I'm gonna book my flight today I'm definitely on my way Just hold my place and I'll get back in the race And I'm back in the USA

F(r)iends

JJ DEMON "Funeral Disco"
Graveyard, behind the church On a tree the crow is perched Lounging on it's lowest branch No great secret, no romance I should leave this stupid town Fearing that I'd see you around And I would not know what to say How you threw my trust away In the dirt... lies the body In the basket... fruit is rotting From the grass cadaver rise If this is life I'd rather die Misery, emptiness Straw and bottle kept me sick What's left of me A floating ghost Not strong enough to safe us both Friends Take me by the hand I will walk you through the darkness I will make you understand We were friends Running endless through the night Until you told me that I changed Well I guess that you were right Living in squalor was a hideous sight Just chasing a dollar in the city at night You wanted to wallow in the pity that's life to a liar Swallowed in the ittiest bite Following what the idiots like And like an idiot, painted it the prettiest white Insidious, was the grip that it held Fell down from Heaven, slipped into hell I would never blame you for the curse That I was given by my father But to think that in your presence it wouldn't be exercised, why bother And with the lump in your throat gone Lies gave you something to choke on The girl was not the issue I won't miss her, I might miss you Friends Take me by the hand I will walk you through the darkness I will make you understand We were friends Running endless through the night Until you told me that I changed Well I guess that you were right We were friends Did we think that we were pure We were friends since I remember But we can't be anymore We were friends But we can't be anymore We were friends But we can't be anymore Graveyard, behind the church Carry us to the comfortable caress of the dirt Despair everlasting under the gray skies We leave friendship here so that it may die Rain falls slow to the earth, and woe is me Perhaps from it's burial place will grow a tree Climbed by you and I, but 10 years younger Waiting for the undertaker to take us under What made us wonder What made us crumble like bricks Maybe we were afraid of thunder Cross silhouette in the dusk of November The boys make a pact to be friends forever This is like never, "Leaving us so soon?" We feel the kinship die, leaving it's own wound We thought that we could survive anything But what does forever mean when you're 17 Friends Take me by the hand I will walk you through the darkness I will make you understand We were friends Running endless through the night Until you told me that I changed Well I guess that you were right We were friends Did we think that we were pure We were friends since I remember But we can't be anymore We were friends But we can't be anymore We were friends But we can't be anymore
