WAYLON JENNINGS lyrics - Lonesome, On'ry And Mean

Freedom To Stay

Original and similar lyrics
I tied my bandana took my pack from the floor You were still sleeping as I stood at the door Once more I was headin' to God only knows where That's when it hit me I was already there. I could ramble a thousand miles or more Never find the light I've seen in your eyes before You gave me the freedom to go on my way But you gave me much more you gave me the freedom to stay. Why keep on runnin' just to wish on a star Searching for Heaven when I know where you are Life is just empty when you're walking alone So wherever we're going girl Lord it's good to be at home. I could ramble a thousand miles or more Never find the light I've seen in your eyes before You gave me the freedom to go on my way But you gave me much more you gave me the freedom to stay...

Lonely Astronaut

JOSEPH ARTHUR "Let's Just Be"
Here comes the rain Falling down like ecstasy I feel your pain Raining now inside of me Far from where we're going Away from where we've been Everything we lost out here One day must be lost again [2x] The moon will rise Worship lonely astronauts To our surprise We can never get the light we lost With the weight of our emotions Which are gone before they end Are they here just to remind us Of everything we've lost again Everything we've lost again When you cry your eyes are hollow [4x] Send out the probe To help us find eternity It won't return Or no one will be left to see The stars are in their solitudes The light it comes from them By the time it hits our open eyes All of it is lost again [2x] We disappear Into one another's mind And reappear With faith in something new to find We are resurrecting our history so thin With graduatin' needs to fill The love we'll only lose again [2x] When you cry your eyes are hollow [4x]

Swiss Cottage Manoeuvres

AL STEWART "Bed-Sitter Images"
On a Christmas cake day one Friday in August In a bookshop in Charing Cross Road I first set eyes on a girl and at once I did know She had eyes like a poet and hair like a rainbow Reflecting the lights that did glow And the sadness she kept in her eyes Struck my senses a blow And so as by chance at the touch of a glance We could find ourselves out in the road With no crush of time to defeat us and no place to go And I couldn't say how but the coffee bar crowd Had appeared through the silence that broke And she said "Oh my father's a judge in St Albans you know." "Oh well, then perhaps I could help you You know that St. Albans is miles away And I've got a room in Swiss Cottage in which you could stay "She laughed "Oh I couldn't do that, For I've got to be up in the morning you see. "So I rang up to find out the first morning train she could take And so in the gloom of a candlelit room With spaghetti, two forks and a plate She said "Oh I really would like to be free and escape." "Oh well if it's like thatYou don't have to go back And you're perfectly welcome to stay" "But I've not finished school yet." she said as she got into bed And so as she slept and the pure morning crept Through the windows to take her away I thought you can't make people be what you want them to be I could see my self nailed to a dormitory tale Of a holiday night's escapade And just yesterday she had seemed like a woman to me And so like a child with the sleep in her eyes Where the sadness of age had once been She left on the train with a "See you again" and a smile And I couldn't say what I had won or I lost Or even just what I had seen But when I'm alone I just think of her once in awhile.

Back To Me

THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS "When The World Comes Down"
Hey you So you never really found your way Stay true Did you ever make it through today That when I think about a day without it Everyday's the same You wish that you could find someone But I'm the only one to blame Can't you see I beg and plead Cause when your eyes light up the skies at night I know you're gonna find your way back to me No don't Don't you ever let a piece of me down Cause time won't Get back when I'm never around When we live between so many walls That I can barely breathe You say that you just want someone But I'm the only one you need Can't you see I Beg and plead Cause when your eyes light up the skies at night I know you're gonna find your way If it's me That you don't need When the lights go out tonight I know You're never gonna find your way Soon when I get you I won't let you go Oooh if I let you You can take away all that I thought was wrong And if you hear me there's not much to say There's gotta be a better way Can't you see I beg and plead Cause when your eyes light up the sky tonight I know you're going to find your way back to me Can't you see I beg and plead Cause when the lights go out tonight I know you're never gonna find your way If it's me That you don't need That when the lights go out tonight I know you're never gonna find you way If you pace around the world 'til you're with me And when your eyes light up the skies at night I know you're gonna find your way back to me

Take My Heart

Jake "Jake"
I don't know how to find You But I need You now You come and go it seems So far away You hide Your face from me Where do You go when I am hungry like a child For the eyes of a father smiling down I want to know You love me CHORUS: I am waiting for You I am waiting here tonight I am praying for my eyes to see the light But I have tasted Your life And that's how I know I am tired of mine It's only You that I am longing for tonight I want You to take me from this place I want You to lift my hands up high CHORUS2: I am waiting for You I am waiting here tonight I am falling on my knees I can't find You I am ready for You I am ready for Your touch I am praying for my eyes to see the light
