AMOS LEE lyrics - Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song

Dresser Drawer

Original and similar lyrics
The phone rings And I don't care who it is that is calling You moved our things from ours to his While outside the snow is falling The wedding band that meant so much Signified our blessed vow Like coffee spills and unpaid bills and all my pills It's in a dusty dresser drawer now I watched these trees from green to brown Suddenly this small town has gotten smaller The arctic breeze it sings to me, and says now look Any fool can go out and walk on water I shoulda known that time alone Would only serve to break you down Don't know why I sit and stare at that damn thing sitting there In a dusty dresser drawer now Snow has turned to water To please the trees And cheer up that late bloomer While I'm sipping on a beer counting down another year Couldn't come a second sooner I wonder how easily that ring it slid off of your finger Did you stop for a moment Let the memory of us linger Or was it just an afterthought Like casting water from a bow I'm past the point of crying For a love that lies there dying In a dusty dresser drawer now It's such a goddamn shame Right next to your picture frame In a dusty dresser drawer now If anybody asks me what I think, that love is for now, I'll tell them Look in a dusty dresser drawer now

Grand Canyon

ANI DIFRANCO "Educated Guess"
I love my country By which I mean I am indebted joyfully To all the people throughout its history Who have fought the government to make right Where so many cunning sons and daughters Our foremothers and forefathers Came singing through slaughter Came through hell and high water So that we could stand here And behold breathlessly the sight How a raging river of tears Cut a grand canyon of light Yes, I've bin so many places Flown through vast empty spaces With stewardesses whose hands Look much older than their faces I've tossed so many napkins Into that big hole in the sky Bin at the bottom of the Atlantic Seething in a two-ply Looking up through all that water And the fishes swimming by And I don't always feel lucky But I'm smart enough to try Cuz humility has buoyancy And above us only sky So I lean in Breathe deeper that brutal burning smell That surrounds the smoldering wreckage That I've come to love so well Yes, color me stunned and dazzled By all the red white and blue flashing lights In the American intersection Where black crashed head on with white Comes a melody Comes a rhythm A particular resonance That is us and only us Comes a screaming ambulance A hand that you can trust Laid steady on your chest Working for the better good (Which is good at its best) And too, bearing witness Like a woman bears a child... With all her might Born of the greatest pain Into a grand canyon of light I mean, no song has gone unsung here And this joint is strung crazy tight And people bin raising up their voices Since it just ain't bin right With all the righteous rage And all the bitter spite That will accompany us out Of this long night That will grab us by the hand When we are ready to take flight Seatback and traytable In the upright and locked position Shocked to tears by each new vision Of all that my ancestors have done Like, say, the women who gave their lives So that I could have one People, we are standing at ground zero Of the feminist revolution Yeah, it was an inside job Stoic and sly One we're supposed to forget And downplay and deny But I think the time is nothing If not nigh To let the truth out Coolest f-word ever deserves a fucking shout! I mean Why can't all decent men and women Call themselves feminists? Out of respect For those who fought for this I mean, look around We have this Yes I love my country By which I mean I am indebted joyfully To all the people throughout its history Who have fought the government to make right Where so many cunning sons and daughters Our foremothers and forefathers Came singing through slaughter Came through hell and high water So that we could stand here And behold breathlessly the sight How a raging river of tears Is cutting a grand canyon of light

She Comes Home To Me

ADAM SANDLER "Stan And Judy's Kid"
Though I have been a fool for love I have finally made my score I got a girl, and I don't mean to boast But she loves me the most Even though she's a highly paid whore She'll give head to a sheep She can stuff three cocks in her cheek But she comes home to me She'll do the groom and the best man She'll slap your ass in the back of a van But she comes home to me She could fuck nine guys in a row But still have a tenth for me And I'm the only one who gets to kiss them lips Unless you pay an extra fifty So mister, don't you fall in love Cause I'm the only cat who doesn't wear a glove Since her heart belongs to me She has a throat that just won't quit She can take all of it And still have room for your balls but she shops in the malls for me She'll say twelve then call back and say one But I don't care I know it's just work not fun When she blows you, Jack Don't you think she's not thinking of me She'll go down on a yack, lick a horse's nutsack But strictly for the cash And it's only me who doesn't pay a fee to watch her put a water bottle in her gash (Put a water bottle in her gash) She'll let you suck her nips till they're leakin' But don't you dare try to go antique-ing Cause she does that with me Her pussy's sweet as honey But when she moans, it's just for the money Unless she's sittin' on me She'll cram your asshole with a mouse But she won't do it in our house Tough luck, Jack She knows that don't fly with me She might eat your wife's box But she won't tell ya where you left your socks She rolled up and down your fat prick But it was me who took her to the Meg Ryan flick She's got a face full of nuts And a mouth full of cocks She's done Seal, Larry King, four New Kids on the Block, She blew the Winnepeg Jets right after a game But they never got to know her actual name On your face she will piss On your chest she might poop But she won't prepare her famous vegetable soup That's simply reserved.. Oh she'll bite ya, she'll spank ya But she'll never thank you for free Cause baby... comes home to me. Comin' home!!

Annan Water

John Wesley Harding "The Trad Arr Jones"
Oh Annan Water's wondrous deep And my love Annie's wondrous bonny I'm loathed that she should wet her feet Because I love her best of any Go saddle to me my bonny grey mare Go saddle her soon and make her ready For I must cross that river tonight And all to see my bonny lady And woe betide you Annan Water At night you are a gloomy river And over you I'll build a bridge That never more true love may sever He has ridden over field and fell On moor and moss and many a mile His spurs of steel were sore to bite And from the mare's feet flew the fire The mare flew over moss and moor And when she'd won the Annan Water She couldn't have ridden a furlong more Had a thousand whips been laid upon her And woe betide you Annan Water At night you are a gloomy river And over you I'll build a bridge That never more true love may sever Oh boatman come put up your boat Put up your boat for gold and money For I must cross that stream tonight Or never more I'll see my Annie The sides are steep, the waters deep From bank to brae the waters pouring And your bonny grey mare she sweats for fear She stands to hear the waters roaring And woe betide you Annan Water At night you are a gloomy river And over you I'll build a bridge That never more true love may sever And he has tried to swim that stream And he swam on both strong and steady But the river was broad and strength did fail And he never saw his bonny lady Oh woe betide the willow wand And woe betide the bush of briar For it broke beneath the true lover's hand When strength did fail and limbs did tire And woe betide you Annan Water At night you are a gloomy river And over you I'll build a bridge That never more true love may sever

Where Were You

JACKSON BROWNE "Time The Conqueror"
Where were you when the sky cracked open? Heading for shelter and barely coping Thinking you could ride the storm out, Hoping it would be all right Where were you when they gave the warning? Hundred fifty-mile winds by morning Category four making landfall in the wild grey light Where were you? Where were you in the social order? The Lower Nine or a hotel in the Quarter Which side of the border between rich and poor? Where were you going to evacuate to? Assuming there was any way to Where, if you didn't own a car? Where were you? Where were you when you understood However decent, however good However hard some people try They only barely make it by They're born, and live their entire lives in harm's way Where were you when you heard the stranded, The injured and the empty handed Were running out of food and water at the Superdome? With the newborn and the elderly Exposed to even more misery While those in charge of rescue Waited for the Guard to come And those who left the Convention Center Were stopped on the bridge when they tried to enter The safety of the west bank, and higher ground And when the Guard finally did arrive And got to work on about day five Mainly they were used to keep the looting down Where were you? Where were you when you realized However strong, however wise However true our leaders appear to be When they talk about prosperity However hard this country strives If property is valued more than lives How strong will we ever really be? How long do we imagine we'll be free? We hold the truth self evident: The photograph of the President From Air Force One, he views the devastation Shaved face, rested eyes Looking down, he circles twice On his way home from his vacation Where were you, when you got the picture? Where were you? Where were you when the streets filled up with black water? Where were you when defeat and destruction Reigned in the Crescent Where were you when it blew from every direction Where were you when the promise was made To return, and rebuild, and restore to its people The city that gave us the first American music True inspiration and the freedom to use it Where will we find it again, if we lose it? And where will we be, if we ever cease to love? If we ever cease to love ...

Alchemy

MICK JENKINS "Wave[s]"
It's like turning nothing into everything Starting with scraps and redefining what society thinks is quality Like who thought up the golden standard the haves? The have nots ask not what you can do for them but what have you done? I mean you're sick and you're tired and you're hungry and you're thirsty And you take that first bite or drink, you sip slow Because truth is harsh but it burns, but it's also addictive You want more till you... Drink more water Flooded the market, murdering flows it's blood on the carpet A crime scene, gave 'em the light Wait 'till I turn on the high beams Niggas ain't seeing me Drunk off this water you might just see 3 of me Don't greet me as God, my nigga I ain't no deity Take off them water wings, I'm losing water weight I been on creatine Curing my countenance, creating this gold from the lead in my pencil I think I'm a alchemist, and it's gon take courage no cowardly dogs In the pound, we don't want 'em round No love lost or found, don't give a fuck bout a clown Bit 'em with the Pros conversation profound I was down on my luck but I'm still myself Drinking all this water tryna heal myself Know I keep it real even steal homie Just want you to feel It I don't really ever feel myself Remember when I had to find a meal myself Fresh out of jail, crashed at my nigga Slims He ain't think twice bout the shit The move was a roll of the dice Know the lord on my side cause them 63rd nights was a bitch Always knew that life wasn't this though Still had to get right with the wrist wrote this though With a little light and a pistol Lowkey, peep how he keep the peace, you know me They say I be talking bout water too much You hear that? That's how many fucks I could give Still I got love for a hater would give up a rib They say they confused about ginger ale Well come have a sip when it's chill Y'all need to chill People tell me I'm that nigga now I know none of that shit is real
