AMOS LEE lyrics - As The Crow Flies

The Darkness

Original and similar lyrics
Well I never asked for nothin' I got nothin' in return Turn out that there's something Letters bound and burned Well I know you think you knew me Well I thought I knew you too I guess I was a fool but... That ain't nothing new We all fall into... the darkness oooh the darkness oooh the darkness Befor the Dawn Well I never was wasteful with the time I had at hand Guess I had to chase you So I had to understand That we all fall into... the darkness oooh the Darkness oooh the Darkness Before the Dawn So go get out my records If you take one last request Tell me that you love me that you always did your best So I sense I fell into... the darkness oooh the darkness oooh the darkness oooh the darkness

Way Back When

AIMEE MANN "Whatever"
Well, I guess that this is now the end who'd have thought my old friend we signed the papers and we capped the pen But I remember you from way back when 'Good evening, ladies and gentlemen welcome David-what's-his-name-again' Things change - the old cliche if we knew now what we knew yesterday oh, we couldn't give it away. I was working at a record store I knew you, you knew the score some kind of deal is what we're looking for Time came, and disappeared no one steered and it got weirder help was needed, no one volunteered. Things change, you got to wait a bit what made me think that I could weather it? you're down before you even notice you've been hit And through it all I wondered where the bus was taking you who knew? and even though my one and one was always making two I never thought that I was breaking you. We were victims of the old taboo but people change we changed too just make it count before they get to you. Things change - baby, hold the phone! - they'll shoot you down like you was Al Capone Oh, you better go it alone. Well, I guess that this is now the end the paper's signed - forget the pen wonder if we'll ever meet again?

All The Best

JOHN PRINE "The Missing Years"
I wish you love And happiness I guess I wish you All the best I wish you don't Do like I do And ever fall in love with Someone like you Cause if you fell Just like I did You'd probably walk around the block like a little kid. But kids don't know They can only guess How hard it is To wish you happiness I guess that love Is like a Christmas card You decorate a tree You throw it in the yard It decays and dies And the snowmen melt Well I once knew love I knew how love felt Yeah I knew love Love knew me And when I walked Love walked with me And I got no hate And I got no pride Well I got so much love That I cannot hide Say you drive a Chevy Say you drive a Ford You say you drive around the town till you just get bored Then you change your mind For something else to do And your heart gets bored with your mind and it changes you Well it's a doggone shame And it's an awful mess I wish you love I wish you happiness I wish you love I wish you happiness I guess I wish you All the best

I Bit Off More Than I Could Chew

SUZI QUATRO "Your Mamma Won't Like Me"
(Chapman/Chinn) Turn down the bedroom lights and warm my soul Let all your inhibitions go We'll reach the kind of heights we've never known Laid back and easy Take it slow slow slow But wait, are your intentions what I think they are Unless you've sold it won't you hand me back the keys to my car Well I guess I never knew I bit off more than I could chew When you handed me that offer, I shoulda said no to you Oh mamma mamma mamma Well I guess you always knew That I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Ooh come closer baby Let your soul relax, we're old enough to face the facts Get off the rails, and let your train get on my tracks But wait a minute, is that the way you always act I've met your kind before, I know I know your game You didn't even take the time to ask my name Well I guess I never knew I bit off more than I could chew When you handed me that offer, I shoulda said no to you Oh Oh Oh mamma mamma mamma Well I guess I never knew That I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Well I guess I never knew I bit off more than I could chew When you handed me that offer, I shoulda said no to you Oh mamma mamma mamma Well I guess you always knew That I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Well I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Well I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Well I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Well I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Well I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Well I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Well I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Well I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew Well I bit off I bit off I bit off I bit off more than I could chew

F(r)iends

JJ DEMON "Funeral Disco"
Graveyard, behind the church On a tree the crow is perched Lounging on it's lowest branch No great secret, no romance I should leave this stupid town Fearing that I'd see you around And I would not know what to say How you threw my trust away In the dirt... lies the body In the basket... fruit is rotting From the grass cadaver rise If this is life I'd rather die Misery, emptiness Straw and bottle kept me sick What's left of me A floating ghost Not strong enough to safe us both Friends Take me by the hand I will walk you through the darkness I will make you understand We were friends Running endless through the night Until you told me that I changed Well I guess that you were right Living in squalor was a hideous sight Just chasing a dollar in the city at night You wanted to wallow in the pity that's life to a liar Swallowed in the ittiest bite Following what the idiots like And like an idiot, painted it the prettiest white Insidious, was the grip that it held Fell down from Heaven, slipped into hell I would never blame you for the curse That I was given by my father But to think that in your presence it wouldn't be exercised, why bother And with the lump in your throat gone Lies gave you something to choke on The girl was not the issue I won't miss her, I might miss you Friends Take me by the hand I will walk you through the darkness I will make you understand We were friends Running endless through the night Until you told me that I changed Well I guess that you were right We were friends Did we think that we were pure We were friends since I remember But we can't be anymore We were friends But we can't be anymore We were friends But we can't be anymore Graveyard, behind the church Carry us to the comfortable caress of the dirt Despair everlasting under the gray skies We leave friendship here so that it may die Rain falls slow to the earth, and woe is me Perhaps from it's burial place will grow a tree Climbed by you and I, but 10 years younger Waiting for the undertaker to take us under What made us wonder What made us crumble like bricks Maybe we were afraid of thunder Cross silhouette in the dusk of November The boys make a pact to be friends forever This is like never, "Leaving us so soon?" We feel the kinship die, leaving it's own wound We thought that we could survive anything But what does forever mean when you're 17 Friends Take me by the hand I will walk you through the darkness I will make you understand We were friends Running endless through the night Until you told me that I changed Well I guess that you were right We were friends Did we think that we were pure We were friends since I remember But we can't be anymore We were friends But we can't be anymore We were friends But we can't be anymore

A Boy Named Sue

JOHNNY CASH "At San Quentin"
My daddy left home when I was three And he didn't leave much to ma and me Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze. Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid But the meanest thing that he ever did Was before he left, he went and named me "Sue." Well, he must o' thought that is quite a joke And it got a lot of laughs from a' lots of folk, It seems I had to fight my whole life through. Some gal would giggle and I'd get red And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head, I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue." Well, I grew up quick and I grew up mean, My fist got hard and my wits got keen, I'd roam from town to town to hide my shame. But I made a vow to the moon and stars That I'd search the honky-tonks and bars And kill that man who gave me that awful name. Well, it was Gatlinburg in mid-July And I just hit town and my throat was dry, I thought I'd stop and have myself a brew. At an old saloon on a street of mud, There at a table, dealing stud, Sat the dirty, mangy dog that named me "Sue." Well, I knew that snake was my own sweet dad From a worn-out picture that my mother'd had, And I knew that scar on his cheek and his evil eye. He was big and bent and gray and old, And I looked at him and my blood ran cold And I said: "My name is 'Sue!' How do you do! Now your gonna die!!" Well, I hit him hard right between the eyes And he went down, but to my surprise, He come up with a knife and cut off a piece of my ear. But I busted a chair right across his teeth And we crashed through the wall and into the street Kicking and a' gouging in the mud and the blood and the beer. I tell ya, I've fought tougher men But I really can't remember when, He kicked like a mule and he bit like a crocodile. I heard him laugh and then I heard him cuss, He went for his gun and I pulled mine first, He stood there lookin' at me and I saw him smile. And he said: "Son, this world is rough And if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough And I knew I wouldn't be there to help ya along. So I give ya that name and I said goodbye I knew you'd have to get tough or die And it's the name that helped to make you strong." He said: "Now you just fought one hell of a fight And I know you hate me, and you got the right To kill me now, and I wouldn't blame you if you do. But ya ought to thank me, before I die, For the gravel in ya guts and the spit in ya eye Cause I'm the son-of-a-bitch that named you "Sue.'" I got all choked up and I threw down my gun And I called him my pa, and he called me his son, And I came away with a different point of view. And I think about him, now and then, Every time I try and every time I win, And if I ever have a son, I think I'm gonna name him Bill or George! Anything but Sue! I still hate that name!
