Tonight At Noon

Original and similar lyrics
Tonight at noon, tonight at noon When we meet in the midnight hour, I will bring you night flowers (coloured) Like your eyes Tonight at noon, I'll touch your hand Held for a moment amongst strangers Amongst the dripping trees Country girl Walking in city squares in winter rain - Walking down muddy lanes or empty streets - Arranging a time and place to meet - Tonight at noon, you'll feel my warmth You'll feel my body inside you We'll be together for hours Time and tears - Won't wait for evermore For the time is now - And now is the time to explore Why waste the world outside When you're sure

Eight Mile Road

EMINEM
( It's okay, it's okay. I'm gonna make it anyway.) Sometimes I just feel like Quittin I still might Why do I put up this fight? Why do I still write? Sometimes it's hard enough steal from the real life Sometimes I wanna jump on stage and just kill mics And show these people what my level of skill's like But I'm still white Sometimes I just hate life Somethin ain't right Hit the breaklights In case of the stage fright Draw on the blank light (Uhh, But if I fall, It ain't my fault, Breakin eyeballs, My insides crawl) And I clam up (SMASH!) I just slam shut I just can't do it My whole manhood's just been stripped I've just been ripped So I must been dipped Or the bustin split Man fuck this shit yo I'm goin the fuck home Rollin my shoulders as I run back to this 8 Mile Rd. (Chorus) I'm a man I'm a make a new plan Time for me to stand up and travel new land Time for me to just to take matters into my own hands Once I'm over these tracks man I'm a never look back (8 Mile Rd.) And I'm gone I don't like where I'm goin Sorry mama I've grown I must travel alone Ain't no followin no footsteps I'm makin my own Only way I know how to escape from this 8 Mile Rd. Walkin these traintracks Tryin to regain back the spirit I have 'Fore I go back to the same crap (SMASH!) To the same plant And the same pants Tryin to chase rap Gotta move A.S.A.P. Get a new plan Mama's got a new man Poor little baby sister She don't understand Sits in front of the TV, bury's her nose in the pad And just colors until the crayon gets dull in her hand While she colors her big brother, her mother, and dad Ain't no tellin what really goes on in her little head Wish I could be the daddy that neither one of us had But I keep runnin from somethin I never wanted so bad Sometimes I get upset Cuz I ain't blew up yet It's like I grew up, but I aint grownin two nuts yet Don't gotta rap my step Don't got enough pep The pressure's too much man I'm just tryin to do what's best And I try Sit alone and I cry Yo I won't tell a lie Not a moment goes by That I don't pray to the sky Please I'm beggin you God Please don't let me be pigeon holdin on regular job Yo I hope you can hear me hommie Wherever you are Yo I'm tellin you dog I'm bailin this trailor tomorrow Tell my mother I love her Kiss baby sister goodbye Say whenever you need me baby I'm never too far But yo, I gotta get out there The only way I know And I'm going to be back for you On the second that I blow On everything I own I'll make it on my own Off to work I go Back to this 8 Mile Rd. (Chorus) Ya gotta live it to feel it If you didn't you wouldn't get it We'll see what the big deal is Why it wasn't, it still is To be walkin this border line of Detroit city's limit It's different, it's a certain significant certificate of authenticity You'd never even see But it's everything to me It's my credibility You've never seen, heard, smell, or met an MC Who's incredible and on the same pedistool as me But check Still unsigned Havin a rough time Sit on the porch with all my friend's who kick dumb rhymes Go to work And servin MC's in the lunch line But when it come's crunch time Where do my punch lines go? Who must I show? To bust my flow? Where must I go? Who must I know? Or am I just another crab in the bucket Cuz I ain't havin no luck with this little rabbit so fuck it Maybe I need a new outlit I'm startin to doubt shit I'm feelin a little scepticle Of who I hang out with I look like a bum Yo my clothes ain't about shit At the Salvation Army Tryin to salvage and outfit And it's cold Tryin to travel this road Plus I feel like I'm only stuck in this battlin mode My defenses are so up And one thing I don't want Is pity from no one The city is no fun There is no sun And it's so dark Sometimes I feel like I'm just being pulled apart Being torn in my limbs By each one of my friends Enough to just make me wanna jump outta my skin Sometimes I feel like a robot Sometimes I just know not what I'm doin I just blow My head is a stove top I just explode The kettle gets so hot Sometimes my mouth just overloads the acid I don't got But I've learned It's time for me to U-Turn Yo it only takes one time for me to get burnt Ain't no fallin No next time I meet a new girl I can no longer play stupid Or be immature I've got every ingredient All I need is the courage Like I already got to beat All I need is the words Got the urge Suddenly its a search Suddenly a new verse of energy has occured Time to show these free world leaders Three in the third I am no longer scared now I'm free as a bird And I turn and cross over The median curb Hit the burbs and all you see is a blur on 8 mile rd. (Chorus)

Poetry For The Poisoned - Incubus

KAMELOT "Poetry For The Poisoned"
There was a time when I was young A boy with bold ambitions There was a time when I could tell the crooked from the wicked one There was a song that someone sung A hint of recognition There was a time I knew you well enough to know you won't be gone [Chorus:] Come with me tonight Tell me how it feels to be alive There was a time I had respect A name of reputation There was a time when I could watch myself without being disgraced [Chorus:] Come with me tonight Let us find a place where we can hide [Chorus:] Come into the light Let me show you how we stay alive [Instrumental] [Spoken:] The word "incubus" means "to lie on", and it was believed that any feeling in bed, such as a weight pressing down on your chest, especially accompanied by nightmares, was a sure sign that an incubus had attempted to have a nocturnal intercourse with you. Given the religious fervour of the Middle Ages, it is not altogether surprising that the idea of a demon lover was believed to account of this phenomenon.

Say Yes

JOELL ORTIZ "House Slippers"
[Sahlance:] If God, came to you And asked you, "Will you give me your all?" Would you say yes? {"Heatmakerz"} Lord I'm all yours, forgive me for all flaws There's so many, there's so many, there's so many, there's so many There's so many, there's so many, I've been disobeyin yo' laws I've been livin life how I felt, I've been sayin yes when I want I've been dippin into temptation, it was that fool's gold that I'd flaunt It was them devil riches I seeked, it was all of your jewels that I lost Lord I wanna take this time to thank you, even when I started drivin off course You ain't let me crash into that wall, feel like I was never drivin at all I felt yo' hands all on that wheel, heard yo' voice in every dope deal Saw yo' light in every dark thought, I was out here ignorin your will I left yo' side but you ain't leave mine, how many times I said "It's the last time"? Lord I just gotta get off this last time, I'm a get a job, save every last dime I lied to my God, life is so hard, one of my most used excuses For me to just, hold tools and live ruthless, buyin that ProTools was just useless Dust collectin, wait a fuckin second, I just cussed cause check it, even though I'm rappin Lot of blessings happen, it feel like I'm slappin even more than before, am I disrespectin When I'm spittin this message every time I can? Will my fans accept it? Should I even care? Still second guessin when I know what's first, I'm a miss this blessin, man I'm just confessin Yeah I'm out the hood but e'rything ain't good (e'rything ain't good, but e'rything ain't good) [Bridge:] There's so many, there's so many, there's so many There's so many things that I could Be out here doin and knowin that I should and if it's not gettin done, I'm addin more wood To the fire I'm a burn in later, when I turn the savior gon' be standin there like "You would Be in my kingdom, but I was singin, and your ears was ringin, you would feel that tinglin Kinda scratch it off, and continue minglin in a party drinkin, all that unclean thinkin While they blastin off, your new record felt good now, didn't it? You was on fire, now it's infinite" Man I'm gettin scared as I'm writin this, but I'm quiet in the flame as I'm spittin it See this is my deliverance, for the first time I ain't only talkin, I'm livin it No more layin down with women just lustin disgusting, trust me my faith is unlimited No more postin and pivotin on blocks like I'm gettin it, countin dividends Work up in the Timberlands, servin 'em like Wimbleton, hurtin my community worse, every person I distributed I attributed to they spirit givin in, so every time they sin again that's another strike for me Can't believe that kind of livin was aight with me, man FUCK my life, they say life's a B Guess I was fuckin her too, no surprise to me, since I was handin out pipe for free 5-foot-3, nice physique, hop up in the ride with me and lean back in the driver's seat Every night with a stranger, but look how I changed up, I'm chillin on the road, got my wife with me And my boobie's smooth while all the groupies drooled, she just smilin and enjoyin this life with me But see lyin to God has only lied to me, so Lord, them dopeboys still tied to me I ain't buyin ki's but they'll die for me and I'll die for them, that feels right to me If I'm wrong keep your scrawnies [?] and fight for me, I got a little bit of Christ in me But I ain't perfect, I feel that worship for your word as it grows inside of me But I feel guilty cause though I feel it I don't fully embrace it, man I just conceal it 'Til we all alone and then my knees get filthy as I drop before you like "Lord, you feel me? You must think I'm silly, even I don't feel me, " feel like I'm actin while my conscience filming Feel like my soul is sayin "Joell, really?" Feel like my soul is sayin "Joell, really?!" There's so many, there's so many, there's so many, there's so many Things I gotta fix for any of your joy really fulfills me Forgive me Lord, man [Sahlance:] Say yes, ohhhhh Say yes, say yes Say yes, ohhhhh
