Both Sides Now

Original and similar lyrics
Bows and flows Of angel hair And ice cream Castles in the air And feather canyons Everywhere I've looked At clouds that way But now They only Block the sun They rain and snow Oneveryone So many things I would have done But clouds Got in my way I've looked At clouds From both sides now From up and down And still somehow It's cloud illusions I recall I really don't know Clouds at all Moons and Junes And ferris wheels The dizzy dancing way You feel As every fairy tale Comes real I've looked At love that way But now It's just Another show You leave 'em Laughing when yougo And if you care Don't let them know Don't give Yourself away I've looked at love From both sides now From give and take And still somehow It's love's illusions I recall I really don't know Love at all Tears and fears And feeling proud To say "I love you" Right outloud Dreams and schemes And circus crowds I've looked At life thatway But now old friends Are acting strange They shake their heads They say I've changed Something's lost But something's gained In living every day I've looked at life From both sides now From win and lose And still somehow It's life's illusions I recall I really don't know Life at all

Meet The Parents

JAY-Z "The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse"
Woo! Uhh, uhh It's 'The Gift & the Curse' Uhh, uhh yea First they love me then they hate me then they love me again .. they love me again Let's take a trip down.. I gotcha Let's take a trip down memory, lane at the cemetary Rain grey skies, seems at the end of every young black life is this line, 'Damn - him already Such a good kid,' got us pourin Henn' already Liquor to the curb for my, niggaz up above When it, cracks through the pavement that's my way of sendin love So, give Big a hug, tell Aa-liyah I said hi 'Til the next time I see her, on the other side He was just some thug that, caught some slugs And we loved him cause, in him we, saw some of us He walked like ussss, talked like ussss His back against the wall, nigga fought like us - damn Poor Isis, that's his momma name Momma ain't strong enough to raise no boy, what's his father name Shorty never knew him, though he had his blood in him Hot temper, momma said he act just like her husband Daddy never fucked with him, so the streets raised him Isis blamin herself, she wish she coulda saved him Damn near impossible, only men can raise men He was his own man, not even him can save him He put his faith in her, thirty-eight in his waist But when you live by the gun you die by the same fate End up, dead before thirty-eight and umm That's the life of us raised by winter, it's a cold world Old girl turned to coke, tried to smoke her pain away Isis, life just, ended on that rainy day When she got the news her boy body could be viewed down at the City Morgue, opened the drawer, saw him nude Her addiction grew, prescription drugs, shift and brew Angel dust, dipped in WOO! She slipped into, her own fantasy world Had herself pregnant by a different dude But reality bites and, this is her life He wasn't really her husband, though he called her wife It was just this night when, moon was full And the stars were just right, and the dress was real tight Had her soundin like Lisa Lisa - I wonder if I take you home will you still love me after this night Mike was the hardhead from the around the way that she wanted all her life, shit she wanted all the hype Used to hold on tight when he wheelied on the bike He was a Willie all her life he wasn't really the one to like It was a, dude named Shy who would really treat her right He wanted to run to the country to escape the city life But I-sis, like this, Broadway life She loved the Gucci sneakers, the red green and whites Hangin out the window when she first seen him fight She was so turned on that she had to shower twice How ironic it would, be some fight that turned into a homicide that'll alter their life See Mike at thirty-two was still on the scene Had a son fifteen that he never saw twice Sure he saw him as an infant, but he dissed on him like 'If that was my son, he would look much different. See I'm light-skinnded and that baby there's dark so it's, momma's baby; poppa's maybe.' Mike was still crazy out there runnin the streets (fuck niggaz want) Had an older but light with thirty-eight gun in his reach It's been fourteen years, him and Isis ain't speak He runnin around like life's a peach, 'til one day he approached this thug that, had a mean mug And it looked so familiar that he called him 'Young Cuz' Told him, get off the strip but the boy ain't budge (fuck you) Instead he pulled out a newer thirty-eight snub He clearly had the drop but the boy just paused (hold up) There was somethin in this man's face he knew he seen before It's like, lookin in the mirror seein hisself more mature And he took it as a sign from the almighty Lord You know what they say about he who hesitates in war (What's that) He who hesitates is lost He can't explain what he saw before his picture went blank The old man didn't think he just followed his instinct Six shots into his kid, out of the gun Niggaz be a father, you're killin your son Six shots into his kid, out of the gun Niggaz be a father, you killin your sons Meet the parents.. [echoes and slows down as it fades]

Next Episode

ANDY MINEO
I've been doing this for so long.. like the only thing I know, feels like the only thing I know (I know, I know, I know) I never really thought what I did was so wrong.. but my eyes were closed, look at how I got to grow (to grow, to grow) There's things in my life, that I gotta undue, What I thought was so right, now I gotta untrue (true..), But we spoke everyday now we don't even speak at all (speak at all), Cause I brought you so much pain that you won't pick up my call, And it's so bittersweet, How the one that can love you so much and hurt you so deep, Light up your day to mess up your whole week, Lock your heart down and keep the key, it goes.. I-don't-want - for you to be my next episode, I-don't-want - just another love story told, I-just-want - you to be my sister, I see life so much different, Now that I know what you're worth... In my quest for them X and O's, in my quest-in my quest for them X and O's, Wasn't being intentional, Now I gotta big list of some ex's, oh.. Do I regret those? well yes and no, Through it all though I got to grow, But it came with a friendship broke, Was it really all worth it? I'm feeling all serpent, That Lecrae line did work when I heard it, 2 bars hit hard like a 2 part sermon, "like Christ, love your wife how He loves the church, Without seeing how many hearts you can break first", I was making relationships, A temporary fix to medicate my loneliness, Taking doses, of emotions, Via phone call, when we spoke and, I planted seeds I really couldn't see you, Couldn't feed myself so how could I feed you? Wasn't seeing God so clear how could I see you? I was just leading you on but didn't need you, Dang, look at the things we do, For our own pleasure we go and use people, You ain't even single no more but I wanna keep you, Look at how it exposed the heart of man is evil, And it's so bittersweet, How the one that can love you so much and hurt you so deep, Light up your day and mess up your whole week, Lock your heart down and keep the key, it goes.. I-don't-want - for you to be my next episode, I-don't-want - just another love story told, I-just-want - you to be my sister, I see life so much different, Now that I know what you're worth... Now that I know what you're worth yea... Now that I know, I see life so much different, I see life so much different, Oooh, I see life so much different, Now that I've been forgiven... We/we/we spoke everyday now we don't even speak at all (speak at all [x4]), And it's so bittersweet

Pain Is Love

JA RULE "Pain Is Love"
[Chorus: Ja Rule] Love don't love me Is the only thing that seems to hold me God can you explain why Love don't love me Is the only thing that seems to hold me God can you explain why [Ja Rule] I sit alone in my four cornered room staring at candles Gettin hot tryin to handle, this hand that's been dealt to me I don't need, especially in this world overwhelmed with greed See we cut from a different tree Y'all niggaz hope and I wish a nigga would fuck with INC Went through the troubles and the struggle of hustlin and runnin (what) So the ones that come behind don't' run through nothin They would fear no man but God and do a lot of frontin And I'm here to tell the world that pain is lovin' Like when I die I hope it rains Cuz if it does, that mean the lord shared them niggaz pain Here lie our man slain And I would get out the game if I could But I promised all my life to my kids I'd make good Can't stand my father and love my momma STILL I TRY, God can you explain why [Chorus] [Ja Rule] I live my life under pistol, cuz lately love ain't been a issue With who's gone miss you, when you dead and gone Will my name live on Or will I be the last to die and breathe and eat Cuz I need a little love and affection and baby I live like every day was my last one Dang, I've been living my life... (haha, yea) Like I'm a leave this world unmarked, smiles combed to horror For all them days when it rains And it feels like thangs ain't gettin no better for me Nobody loves me, sometimes I wish God could come down and hug me And wipe the tears from eyes Cuz in my heart I know only the strong survive And I die for my family, so they can live a better life I try, God can you explain why [Chorus] [Ja Rule] I'll sacrifice my life, fuck all the dumb shit Cuz being black and broke's gettin redundant My grow to be a world leader like X and King If I can live a longer than Pac and BIG What do () niggaz run red, you could tell by the lives we live If it changes it'll be God's prediction, so pain inflicted, like Jane's Addiction Live right like Christians, but dance with the death It's like callin' stones a devil, the road is unlevel Still I walk through the valleys of shadows of death gasping for air Breathe in my last breath My daughter told me first words, my son walked his first steps And all through life we anticipate death And if pain is truly love, for my family I DIE, God can you explain why [Chorus]

Take The Fall

BRENDAN JAMES "The Day Is Brave"
Forget about Norman 'small town' Rockwell Scenes of simple life Forget about savings and poignant phrasings, Cigarettes and schoolyard fights Let us out now Lord of our speed and fancy Of our 'can you hear me now''s And our techno loves Drop us off on 55th and keep us reading Vonnegut Point out now what we're careless of My chance in life is worth letting go Of all the trends they're setting so forgive me If I'm so ordinary with Extraordinary reasons to live It's just like a boy to save his Honor and his money It's just like a girl to feel It's just like a child to stand And interrupt us all And say I'll gladly take the fall for you Now love, love, love, yes It's all you need John and Paul, Ringo, George profess If I've got love I can feel I can remember every meal But like a gift it can be taken all away My chance in life is worth letting go Of all the trends they're setting so forgive me If I'm so ordinary with Extraordinary reasons to live It's just like a boy to save his Honor and his money It's just like a girl to feel It's just like a child to stand And interrupt us all And say I'll gladly take the fall for you I'll gladly take the fall for you

Don't Look Down

HOODIE ALLEN "Making Waves"
Yeah You're crashing in right now It's Making Waves By your new favorite crew Hoodie Allen We gonna start it off right now With out further ado We're coming live to you People start to listen and they wonder if the beat break I'll be rolling rich even if I rock the cheap skates Life's a yearbook, never get a retake And all the good times going faster than a speed date You wonder why we late? Good question Never thought we'd make it here now who'd guess it? New lesson: Treat these moments like a blessin I'm trynna find direction and you trynna GPS it And no BSing on this roller coaster we thrilled We just cut the line trynna get the seat filled And now you're strapped in acting like we chilled I know you love it when we go and let the beat build We feel better then we ever been I need to clear my head excedrin I'm taking off to somewhere big and I be hoping that you getting in But if you don't I know I'll see you when I get home They say the road is just your favourite place to get grown So for the people that I dissed and I led on You can be the people that I miss when I head on I feel so high tonight I don't wanna see the ground Don't look down, don't look down Life can be so simple When living in the clouds Don't look down Don't look down Ain't no better time than the present Maybe if we never count the future And I promise if I said it then I meant it And I never meant to be the one to shoot your Dreams down, see clouds and the sounds just opened up And if they looking for a change then I hope it's us I know it's tough, so is anything that's worth it I'm making it my business to deserve it I feel so high tonight I don't wanna see the ground Don't look down Don't look down Life can be so simple When living in the clouds Don't look down Don't look down
