Cover Up

Original and similar lyrics
[Chorus:] Cover up With loving protection Guard your love In every direction Don't give up For fear of rejection Stand your ground and voice an objection [Verse 1:] Run away my sister and brother Be afraid of love when the lover Tries to read the book by the cover Wrapped up in the arms of another [Chorus] Cover up prolonging the yearning Just ahead the fires are burning Swim for shore the tides are now turning Love the ones you love with your learning [Chorus] Look ahead the futures depending On the brave to now start defending Tell the world the message you're sending We don't need an unhappy ending [Chorus] Got to be safe if you want to be free To sit in the shade of the family tree [Verse 1] [Chorus] Got to be safe if you want to be free To sit in the shade of the family tree

Family

Dar Williams "Mortal City"
Can you fix this? It's a broken heart. It was fine, but it just fell apart. It was mine, but now I give it to you, Cause you can fix it, you know what to do. Let your love cover me, Like a pair of angel wings, You are my family, You are my family. We stood outside in the summer rain, Different people with a common pain. A simple box in that hard red clay, Where we left him to always remain. Let your love cover me, Like a pair of angel wings, You are my family, You are my family. The child who played with the moon and stars, Waves a snatch of hay in a common barn, In the lonely house of Adam's fall Lies a child, it's just a child that's all, crying Let your love cover me, Like a pair of angel wings, You are my family, You are my family.

Go Hard Or Go Home

IGGY AZALEA
[Hook: Wiz Khalifa] I feel like the sky is falling down Ain't nobody here to play around Push it to the edge, I won't back down Cause it's time to go hard or go home One way up, no way out I give it all, all for the family We stay up, no bail outs Give it all, all for the family [Verse 1: Wiz Khalifa] Five, four, three, two, I got one shot You lose the love and respect, that's where the trust stop New work, top drop I roll up every fifteen minutes like a bus stop And you can smell just how I'm smokin' when I burn out And you can catch me ridin' dirty, but my car not It's love and loyalty until my heart lock Never turn your back, won't know how it turned out I said it once, I'll do it again I'm playin' the game, I do it to win With you and your friend, that's thick and thin That's me and my team, you know we gon' win You know we gon' ball, you know we gon' ride 'til the wheels fall off You know we gon' stick to the course, we ain't thinkin' 'bout y'all [Hook] [Verse 2: Iggy Azalea] M-O-N-E-Y, what I go hard for Swingin' on the green like I'm tryna get a par four You ain't sittin' at my table, hope you starve Ho, don't be pushin' my buttons 'less you startin' up my car Pressure make a diamond, that pressure make me a star Got a method to my madness, to bring me down by the bar People always askin' me how I got this far My response is just to keep it honest and be who you are Now they call me Mrs. Money like I'm married to the mula Just to measure my success I need at least a hundred rulers Glory, hallelujah, I'ma take that ass to church I'ma finish like I started, Iggy still got that work [Hook x2]

You Make Me Wanna

ATMOSPHERE "Happy Clown Bad Dub 8 / Fun EP"
Rock the house "You make me wanna die" He said it like he meant it Story over no more hopin to prevent it "You make me wanna live" She said that with a straight face And she placed keep sakes Inside her suitcase "Everything you say is a lie" He said that with a smirk Fully aware that it'll hurt When it hits the nerve "You've never heard a word I've said" She responded But he heard that And remembered it forever like a promise Now here we are, wearing hatred on our masks Let's carry on, put all your eggs inside that basket Swing it round, until that wooden handle snaps Sort 'em all out and only keep the ones that cracked "You make me wanna die" That's why I trust you That's so I can look you in the eye and say I love you [Chorus] [Background voice chanting] Set us free [Woman] I want to live I want to die I've never seen a sun decide to set so abrupt As it does when the gun inside of you wakes up Almost as if it's trying to hide from your tantrums Head full of hurt, pride, a closet full of phantoms Never seen the sun shine quite so loud As it does when that little girl makes herself proud Almost as if it wants to come play a part In those moments when your heart ain't afraid of the dark But sometimes I swear you make the sun confused It wants to rise but it over-analyzes what to do It cries more than you, when the storms come knockin tries to hide it's face, just avoid watchin I would ride by and wave, but there aint no parade So I'ma stay and wait for the day the sun goes away [Chorus] [Background voice chanting] Set us free [Woman] I want to live I want to die What is it about women that brings out my venom Thought it was a peach, it tasted like a lemon I ate it anyway, can't help it's my natural From one extreme to another, no room for practical Just act casual maybe they won't notice Or fall off the planet so you can escape the focus Break the dirt; bury me down when I'm broken Or let the under-current carry me out to the ocean Can't swim as good as I could as a child But as a kid, I never swam just stood there and smiled Even though the idea of drownin in you Seems kinda like it might be the wrong thing to do You gotta take a look at you and I, the clown and the fool Love can make suicide sound so cool [Chorus] [Background voice chanting] Set us free [Woman] I want to live I want to die Let's watch the sun disappear into the water Let's watch these people, and point at the imposters Let's lay it on the line, let's travel across it Let's live forever no matter what it costs us Claustrophobic, lots of down talk Toss clothes in and turn it off Easily lost in moments Forgot the motives, sun almost exploded Lookin for proof, who would've knew, toy gun was loaded Go ahead and throw it out into the waves Say goodbye to yesterday and try to fly the stress away Took it from the sky and looked it square in the eye Silence, trying to read between the snore and the sigh There's a reason that they say that they can't take it with 'em I'm your leavin cuz of love, it really isn't livin

This Is Me

ANGEL HAZE "Reservation"
Hey, Momma, remember when we left home? Damn, I was barely half grown I kept crying as you sat me on that Greyhound And tried to reassure me that things would be okay now But they wasn't, and we both saw it coming, I mean I was just a kid but I was far from a dummy And as the pain grew you got more reckless and destructive Like the time you tried to fight and chase Matt around in public It was crazy, and I ain't never seen it one way I just used to think the cops would take you from us one day And each time I had to be as strong as I could be and more And take myself to places I had never fucking been before Tragic, even in your sanity was madness You tried to make peace so you could teach me how to grasp it You should know I'm proud you're doing better for yourself And that everything you've been made me exactly who I am And it's you and me, and everything we are is everything we'll be I swear I'll always love you, I know you feel the same And I just want to say you made it through the pain Don't let me go Set my soul free, let me grow Don't let me go Set my soul free, let me grow Hey, Dee, I know sometimes you fucking hate me But we've been through a lot and I've been thinking 'bout it lately We seen a lot of shit some kids should never have to see Like the shelter, and every night we starved ourselves to sleep Or like when Daniel used to hurt me and you tried to intervene Or when I told you I was going to kill you all when you were sleeping We were crazy, but we had a lot of bad examples Living how we were living, that's a lot of shit to handle And every time we turned around it seemed like she was hurt again Even when she promised us we'd never have to hurt again And we never had a family But even with the hatred, we have never not had We You should know that I'd be here until the curtains close Even when you lose yourself, here until your hurting goes You should know I'm proud you're doing better for yourself And that everything you've been made me exactly who I am And it's you and me, and everything we are is everything we'll be I swear I'll always love you, I know you feel the same And I just want to say you made it through the pain And don't let me go Set my soul free, let me grow I said, don't let me go Set my soul free, let me grow Dear little girl inside, everything is fine We got through all the pain and even got to keep our minds Sometimes we still get crazy, but not the way we used to When the love that you know now is nothing you were used to Sometimes you have to stop feeling sorry for yourself And love You, that way you can teach anybody else And if it's pain that you were feeling, you release it till it stops Or else it will get stronger and just beat you till you drop You're a lot smarter than you're ever given credit for Live like a simile, lessons are a metaphor I hope one day you're strong enough to break free from the cage And that everything inside you is the reason I be great And it's you and me, and everything we are is everything we'll be I swear I'll always love you, I know you feel the same And I just want to say you made it through to Ra'een

Family Tree

JEWEL "Picking Up The Pieces"
Mama, I see your face now in the mirror It's getting clearer Daddy, all those things I said I wouldn't do I've been drawn to 'cause I looked up to you And I've loved you through this tangled legacy Tracing the twisted roots of our family tree I stayed strong like you did I moved on like you did And I wound up tough as stone like you did If I don't learn to bend I know I'm going to break Like you did Lover, I must forgive you I confused you with what I couldn't see inside of me Dark things pulling, not evolving It made a puppet out of me And you came with your own history Both caught in the branches of our family tree I stayed strong like you did I moved on like you did And I wound up all alone like you did If I don't learn to bend, I know I'm gonna break just like you did I love you but I need to look at who we've been Take the fruit but choose the seeds I scatter in the wind That's the job of the kid: to do better than our parents did So I'll stay strong like you did And I'll move on like you did But I won't hide from the truth like you did I'm learning to bend so I won't break And you can bet I'll teach my child that love will always find a way just like you did
