VANESSA CARLTON lyrics - Be Not Nobody

Paradise

Original and similar lyrics
once upon a year gone by she saw herself give in every time she closed her eyes she saw what could have been well nothing hurts and nothing bleeds when covers tucked in tight funny when the bottom drops how she forgets to fight... to fight and it's one more day in paradise one more day in paradise as darkness quickly steals the light that shined within her eyes she slowly swallows all her fear and soothes her mind with lies well all she wants and all she needs are reasons to survive a day in which the sun will take her artificial light... her light and it's one more day in paradise one more day in paradise it's one more day in paradise one last chance to feel alright... alright don't pretend to hold it in just let it out don't pretend to hold it in just push it out don't you try to hold it in just let it out and don't you try to hold it in you hold it in [chorus] once upon a year gone by she saw herself give in every time she closed her eyes she saw what could have been

AUSTRALIAN CRAWL "Sirocco"
I'm just a shy romantic with my eyes on the loose I'm in a overcoated way A poet in a garret You know what people say Standing at the barline with my lip on the curl I'm with the other lean and lear My finger on the pulse And my hand around a beer Ah, Ahh, well I don't wanna know what's going round here Ah, Ahh, it's just a matter of time, hold it under light Ah, Ahh, I've got to get away, to get away, to get away The singer in the band, he sweat on a pose And he's really such a jerk Thinks he can call me stupid Because he gets a lot of work I'm standing in the background, got my arms on the fold And every dog's gonna have it's day The New Musical Express and my own 4-way P.A. Well, I've been reading those biographies in paperback I've got a death-wish that I can't explain I've been working on that petulance And the urchin took my name Ah, Ahh, well I don't wanna know what's going round here Ah, Ahh, it's just a matter of time, hold it under light Ah, Ahh, I've got to get away, to get away, to get away

If

JONI MITCHELL "Shine"
If you can keep your head While all about you People are losing theirs and blaming you If you can trust yourself When everybody doubts you And make allowance for their doubting too. If you can wait And not get tired of waiting And when lied about Stand tall Don't deal in lies And when hated Don't give in to hating back Don't need to look so good Don't need to talk too wise. If you can dream And not make dreams your master If you can think And not make intellect your game If you can meet With triumph and disaster And treat those two imposters just the same If you can force your heart And nerve and sinew To serve you After all of them are gone And so hold on When there is nothing in you Nothing but the will That's telling you to hold on! Hold on! If you can bear to hear The truth you've spoken Twisted and misconstrued By some smug fool Or watch your life's work Torn apart and broken down And still stoop to build again With worn out tools. If you can draw a crowd And keep your virtue Or walk with Kings And keep the common touch If neither enemies nor loving friends Can hurt you If everybody counts with you But none too much. If you can fill the journey Of a minute With sixty seconds worth of wonder and delight Then The Earth is yours And Everything that's in it But more than that I know You'll be alright You'll be alright. Cause you've got the fight You've got the insight You've got the fight You've got the insight

We've tried our hand At love before We've been around the game enough To know the score' But then is then And now is now All now is all that matters anyhow (*) Make believe it's your first time Leave your sadness behind Make believe it's your first time And I'll make believe it's mine The door is closed It's you and me We'll take our time with love The way it oughta be This moment's ours Tonigh's the night And if we fall in love Well, that's alright Repeat (*) So close your eyes And hold me close And let our hearts pretend That love is ours to share tonight And it might never end Repeat (*)

Between

JERRY CANTRELL "Boggy Depot"
Going to california Try and find my head Gonna swim in the ocean until i'm dead Let the infection spread On my way to texas Drive up on my ranch Gonna take you fishin' up big branch Well now you're my catch Somewhere in between the wrong and right We fight It's fair to say that in your eyes i'm wrong And in my mind, that's alright Off in new york city Good to see some friends Scratched my nose upon a barrette on her head Laid up in a rental bed Then back home to seattle Fed the monkey man I proceed to throw up all over my hand Well it ain't so bad Somewhere in between the wrong and right We fight It's fair to say that in your eyes i'm wrong And in my mind, that's alright That's alright
