TOM WAITS lyrics

Time

Original and similar lyrics
Well, the smart money's on Harlow and the moon is in the street the shadow boys are breaking all the laws and you're east of East St. Louis and the wind is making speeches and the rain sounds like a round of applause Napoleon is weeping in the Carnival saloon his invisible fiance is in the mirror the band is going home it's raining hammers, it's raining nails yes, it's true, there's nothing left for him down here Chorus And it's Time Time Time And it's Time Time Time And it's Time Time Time that you love And it's Time Time Time And they all pretend they're orphans and their memory's like a train you can see it getting smaller as it pulls away and the things you can't remmeber tell the things you can't forget that history puts a saint in every dream Well she said she'd stick around until the bandages came off but these mamas boys just didn't know when to quit and Matilda asks the sailors are those dreams or are those prayers so just close your eyes, son and this won't hurt a bit Chorus Well, things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl the boys just dive right off the cars and splash into the street and when she's on a roll she pulls a razor from her boot and a thousand pigeons fall around her feet so put a candle in the window and a kiss upon his lips till the dish outside the window fills with rain just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart and pay the fiddler off till I come back again Chorus

Let's Start Rap Over

THE LOX "Money, Power Respect"
(Puff talking) See, I want to get back to the love Let's start love over, come on Chorus (Carl Thomas) Let's start love over Back to the way things were Forget about them Cause all we got is us We can make it Sad if we try I want to start love over Let's make it do or die (Stylez) When I was nine years old I realized there was a road At the end I would win lots of pots of gold Days, when I used to have my play clothes on I would make up my rhymes the middle of Voltron But you've learned what the herbs do Breaking curfew Hit the park when it's dark, make it stand like a podium Niggas had a box and a strip of linoleum Some break a boogie but those that don't Was usually a fighter Rollin' easy riders Sending people to the store for a soda and a lighter A real cool cat that would let you keep a dollar But now things change and it's the days of tomorrow Little kids is big now They'll push your wig now Can't send them to the store But you can send them for roll And put them on my vine And give them one big push for all mankind Chorus (Jadakiss) People still taking rapping for a joke A passing hope Or a phrase with a rope What ever happened to the caddies, white walls, and spokes? Crates of records, turntables, plenty of folks Remember playing in the streets, touch football Look y'all Somebody get mad and bounce with they football Twenty four hour block parties Everybody on the block pissing you a dark hardy Adults used to think I was scheming But I was dreaming to one day make a hot album and have 'em all fiendin' Now everytime that I rhyme I can tell that you like it Be nursing the tunes like the mind of a psychic Your mind is weary, floating like a dove Sweating and things, like you were making love Control the crowd so they can accept it Total concentration is the perfect method Bridge (looped while Puff talks) Where's the love? Somebody tell me Where's the love? Because we want to know (Puff talking) I remember everybody I loved, everybody It wasn't always player hating There wasn't jealousy and all this envy It was the love (Sheek) Ayo hip hop Set out in the park What? We used to do it out in the dark All night long till the cops made us go Or till somebody's moms pulled the extension cord from the window Lees on, thinking you fresh Trying to impress Shorty with the baby hair pushed down on her forehead Ponytail swaying, she hot Standing like she bull legged, but she not You remember the days? That's when crack was affecting blacks like that Just drink some Valentine Ale, little reefer Friday night, go check out Star Child at the theater That's all corrupt Over rap you might get bust Say the wrong thing End up in a permanent sling Went from shelltops to hollowtops Used to rock the bus stop Now we electric slide from the cops Want some veterans in this That ain't keeping it real Now with God we chill over a record deal Always the good ones to go Never your enemies die Till this day I wonder why they took my man B.I. No time to yell rhymes in the microphone Take this more serious than just a poem Rock party to party While you're out the door But tear it up yo, let's start love over Chorus Bridge x2

All Alone Tonight

KENNY LOGGINS "Alive"
Day is done and night is calling From the window light is falling Shadows spinning on the walls And dancing in the light And 'round the door the kids are playing Like June bugs into the light And it seems like I'm looking at a mighty good time All alone tonight Hands a-clapping, voices singing Tambourines and guitars ringing Echoes through the willows Bringing music to the night And in the wind the whippoorwill's crying Cold and all alone And I am standing outside of a mighty good time All alone tonight Well, I can't recall when Louisiana music ever sounded so sweet Just listen to the fiddle playing Bonaparte's Retreat (chorus) Well, I just can't take no more I gotta make it through that door And dance until the break of day As long as there's still music playing Bet your life I won't be staying All alone tonight (repeat chorus)

Sincerity

MARY J BLIGE
DMX rap: Now there's two ways we can do this Keep it real or front I know you got what I need and I got what you want And the hunt for soulmates is all over for us We could go away where nobody would know it was us Leave behind all the fuss, the studios, the pictures No autographs, just laughs when I'm wit ya I know what it's like when they know you now But bark at your dog baby, and I'll hold you down Time and time and time again I knew that our love had to end But now it's gone so very far That I can make a brand new start I thought that we were meant to be Be one big family But I was weak and loved you still No matter what you did, I could forgive Chorus: All I need is sincerity All I need is sincerity Thinking 'bout you all the time Never seemed to cross my mind How you could take the time to kill Everything our love had built I never knew how you could hide Everytime you told a lie But now I know why you're so cold But I don't understand Now that you set me free I truly think that we Could find love separately I need sincerity One thing, I'm not as weak I'll always stand alone But my mind is not made of stone So I'll go on Chorus: All I need is sincerity All I need is sincerity Nas rap: Chipped tooth Don Nasty, blue ice timbs on Screw it face, half moon part, my tattoos dark On a scale of tough criminals, nothin' to call me I'm a rare individual, young and I'm bossy Guess it come from a rough life, cuffed at night Lettin' off hot lead that bust from iron pipes I'm the type that have to shed blood Pray to the ghost of dead thugs, dead blocks that spread drugs Fled from the cops 'till when my first joint dropped I'm still wit my hood, Hollow Point still in the glock But I've been shitted on by these high class hoes Even these chickens did me wrong, I was just gettin' on So I turned cold, givin 'em hard dick and straight to the hole Like Rod Strickland, it was takin' it's toll I needed someone I could hold in my darkest hours A strong couple is a blessing and the heart is the power Give me someone I could trust, not just a hotty to bone Does she love Escobar, or love Nasir Jones? Let me know so I could cop her the stones What's clear to me, it's sincerity Somebody I could call my own, yeah All I need is sincerity

Things Of This World

DC TALK "Nu Thang"
70 years is all we got To accumulate goods that seem to mean a lot For the first 20 years, you're off to school Learnin' principles and learnin' the tools To make lots of money, the ultimate goal Gain the whole world and yet lose ya soul Huh, humanism is on a roll 20 gets the the knowledge, 30 years to apply and just 20 years left for askin' why I didn't realize what it was all about And, was there any use in this rigorous route because (chorus) Things of this world are passin' away Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay Things of this world are passin' away So lay your treasure above And start to live for Him today All done for self in this world will pass And all done for Christ in this world will last Sounds like a simple task... But everyday life seems to get in the way No time to serve, barely time to pray Our focal points lost and we get tossed In the wind, cold facing the cost Of fallin' without stallin' or even callin' the Lord While you were blackballin' He was waitin' for you to see the light And find for yourself, these things are trite (repeat chorus) (vamp) Our mind transforms a want to a need A simple process that we call greed Ya say ya like to have money, well I do too The problem starts when the money has you Workin' overtime to keep up with the pace A lifestyle that you want to embrace But it's 2 steps from where your needs are met You're keepin' up with the Joneses, but your all in debt Which will lead to stress, not meeting the bills While ya sportin' a Benz with all the thrills The domino effect's gotcha life in check A temporary stitch and ya livin' a wreck (repeat chorus 2x) Don't lay up your treasures upon this Earth They'll soon pass away And all return to dirt [4x] Things of this world are passin' away Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay Things of this world, things of this world The things, the things, the things of this world Don't lay up your treasures upon this Earth They'll soon pass away And all return to dirt [2x]

Each Day

Biohazard "State Of The World Address"
I found a way out, a solution inside From the things that are bathering me It's been too long since I felt htis way From your sad life I broke free Don't ever think that you ripped me apart And walked away with a price Cause you can not penetrate my cold heart ANd fill it with your disease I wonder now how I lived before Deaf, dumb, dead and blind I moved my life forward and I'm never goin' back And I've left you far behind There's a lot of things that I've now realized From the way that you treated me It's bullshit and it's hatred you epitomized You were blessed to have been with me Chorus: You filled my life with your disease I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees Disease is flowing through my veins I'd rather die right now than live in pain Lead Looking around at the past and the present Things are so much better now Your misery wanted my company But you can't keep a good man down Whatever made me want to be with you Is something I can't understand Cuz if I never saw your fucking face again I'd die a happy man Chorus 2x
