Stoned Out Of My Mind

Original and similar lyrics
Baby when I found out you were lying Playing around and conniving Undesired tears I was crying 'Cause sugar coated as I was buying I was just a backseat driver in a car of love Going wherever you take me Don't know why I put up with the pain 'Cause no one else can make me You've got me going - stoned out of my mind And when you led me to the waters I drank it But I drank more than I could hold And you took my mind off my body And now you want to take my soul Where can I run? Where can I hide? Who can I talk to? Tell me what more can I do? You've got me going - stoned out of my mind Playing around with every guy in town It's funny I just can't put you down See my head - it's spinning around Since the day you let me down

Home

JOE DIFFIE "A Thousand Winding Roads"
The only the thing I see ahead is Just the heat a rising off the road The rainbows I've been chasing keep on fading before I find my pot of gold But more and more I'm thinking, that the only treasures that I'll ever know Are long ago and far behind and wrapped up in my memories of home Home was a swimming hole and a fishing pole and the feel of a muddy row between my toes Home was a back porch swing where I would sit and mom would sing amazing grace While she hung out the clothes, Home was an easy chair with my daddy there and the smell of Sunday supper on the stove My footsteps carry me away but in my mind I'm always going home Now the miles I put behind me ain't as hard as the miles that lay ahead And its much to late to listen to the words of wisdom that my daddy said The straight and narrow path he showed me turned into a thousand winding roads, My footsteps carry me away, but in my mind I'm always going home. Home was a swimming hole and a fishing pole and the feel of a muddy row between my toes Home was a back porch swing where I would sit and mom would sing amazing grace While she hung out the clothes, Home was an easy chair with my daddy there and the smell of Sunday supper on the stove My footsteps carry me away but in my mind I'm always going home Yeah, the straight and narrow path he showed me turned into a thousand winding roads, My footsteps carry me away, but in my mind I'm always going home.

All I Want Is You

ROXY MUSIC "Country Life"
(Ferry) Somebody told me Just the other day That you're leaving me We're through Well if you knew How it hurt me so Then you'd change your mind I'm sure Don't want to hear What's going on I don't care What's new Don't want to know About anything 'Cause all I want Is you Going out with other girls Was always such a bore But since I fell in love with you I need you more and more Don't want to know About one-night-stands Cut-price souvenirs All I want is The real thing And a night that lasts For years. If you ever change your mind I've a certain cure An old refrain, it lingers on L'amour, toujours l'amour... Don't want to learn About etiquette From glossy magazines Why should I try To talk correct Like they do In another scenes Say no more About imagery You're starting to confuse Just make an offer Of more romance Of course I can't refuse All I want is you Oo oo I'm all cracked up on you.

Competition Smile

GIN BLOSSOMS "Congratulations I'm Sorry"
(Phillip Rhodes, Robin Wilson) Looking up I saw nothing But blue in the bluest sky And now it's creeping across my eye Going down in my mind, down in my mind I'm high and I'm hopeless So help me to get untied Fast asleep now I'm going blind Falling down in my mind, down in my mind Just fine Emulate the style A competition smile Now I'm running, not looking And opening up my brain Where it's easy to lose my name Looking dumb in the rain, dumb in the rain I'm hoping you'll notice That no one else helps me grow Oh, it's not easy to let you know What I'm dying to show Dying until you know Pretending all the while A competition smile Now I've thrown something far And it haunts me like a curse I'm like a stone Falling hard And I'm only getting worse Looking up I saw nothing But blue in the bluest sky And now it's creeping across my eye And going down in my mind, down in my mind I'm high and I'm hopeless So help me to get untied Fast asleep now I'm going blind Falling down in my mind, down in my mind Just fine Pretending all the while A competition smile I'm hiding high...

Russian Roulette

VAN MORRISON "Days Like This"
Take it or leave it I've heard it been said All this Spring fever's just way over my head Stealing my moments, taking up all my time It's playing Russian Roulette with my mind It's none of my business baby just what's going on I'm not going to wait till somebody throw me a bone I'm way out on a limb now, and nothing seems to rhyme It's playing Russian Roulette with my mind I think that you've caught on, that you've been used and all I'm going down New Orleans, I've got to see Dr. John Got my mojo working everything will be fine Stop playing Russian Roulette with my mind It's not easy baby when everything starts getting out of control Hang on your hat now, hang on to your soul Don't worry baby, I wanna throw you the line They're playing Russian Roulette with your mind Too many hustlers, I've been here before None of them really know just who that you are Everything gets contracted and space gets confined They're playing Russian Roulette with your mind They're playing Russian Roulette They're playing Russian Roulette They're playing Russian Roulette with your mind They're playing Russian Roulette They're playing Russian Roulette They're playing Russian Roulette with your mind

Blind

Wendy Pettingill "Road Block"
Every day is so dramatic for me I get so angry but no one seems to listen to me My friends start fights My parents have trouble getting it right And guys make no sense to me When it seems like everything's going good just like it should another problem is thrown at me Why am I sinking like a boat with a hole with no contol am I losing it all? It's like I can't see what's coming my way Going through life yes I am sure tons of new things are so in store for me So why is it I can't seem to see? What's coming my way every day I can't get through it any other way If you had caught me on any other day I'd be blind Out of sight and out of my mind Every time I try to fly I fall Why should I bother at all? Late at night I hold my blanket tight Sleep is so good for me It clears stuff up for now I knew it would I wake up ready for the day My boat is free to float again Cause by my side are my friends Going through life yes I am sure tons of new things are so in store for me That's why now I can see What's coming way every day I can't get through it any other way If you had caught me on yesterday I'd be blind Out of sight and out of my mind Out of my mind Why can't I fly? Don't you wonder why? Every day 's so blind? What's coming my way every day? I can't get through it any other way If you had caught me yesterday I'd be blind Out of sight and out of my mind
