ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics - Aretha Arrives

That's Life

Original and similar lyrics
That's life, that's what all the people say. You're riding high in April, Shot down in May But I know I'm gonna change that tune, When I'm back on top, back on top in June. I said that's life, and as funny as it may seem Some people get their kicks, Stompin' on a dream But I don't let it, let it get me down, 'Cause this fine ol' world it keeps spinning around I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, A poet, a pawn and a queen. I've been up and down and over and out And I know one thing: Each time I find myself, flat on my face, I pick myself up and get back in the race. That's life I tell ya, I can't deny it, I thought of quitting baby, But my heart just ain't gonna buy it. And if I didn't think it was worth one single try, I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, A poet, a pawn and a king. I've been up and down and over and out And I know one thing: Each time I find myself laying flat on my face, I just pick myself up and get back in the race That's life That's life and I can't deny it Many times I thought of cutting out But my heart won't buy it But if there's nothing shakin' come this here july I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die My, My

I Know You (Spoken Word)

Henry Rollins
I Know You I know you you were too short you had bad skin you couldn't talk to them very well words didn't seem to work they lied when they came out of your mouth you tried so hard to understand them you wanted to be part of what was happening you saw them having fun and it seemed like such a mystery almost magic made you think that there was something wrong with you you'd look in the mirror trying to find it you thought that you were ugly and that everyone was looking at you so you learned to be invisible to look down to avoid conversation the hours days weekends ah the weekend nights, alone where were you in the basement? in the attic? in your room? working some job? just to have something to do just to have a place to put yourself just to have a way to get away from them a chance to get away from the ones that made you feel so strange and ill-at-ease inside yourself did you ever get invited to one of their parties you sat and wondered if you would go or not for hours you imagined the scenarios that might transpire they would laugh at you if you would know what to do if you would have the right things on if they would notice that you came from a different planet did you get all brave in your thoughts like you were going to be able to go in there and deal with it and have a great time did you think that you might be 'the life of the party' that all these people were gonna talk to you and you would find out that you were wrong that you had a lot of friends and you weren't so strange after all? did you end up going did they mess with you did they single you out did you find out that you were invited because they thought you were so weird yeah, I think I know you you spent a lot of time full of hate a hate that was pure as sunshine a hate that saw for miles a hate that kept you up at night a hate that filled your every waking moment a hate that carried you for a long time yes I think I know you you couldn't figure out what they saw and the way they lived home was not home your room was home a corner was home the place they weren't- that was home I know you you're sensitive and you hide it, because you fear getting stepped on one more time it seems that when you show a part of yourself that is the least bit vulnerable someone takes advantage of you one of them steps on you they mistake kindness for weakness but you know the difference you've been the brunt of their weakness for years and strength is something you know a bit about because you had to be strong to keep yourself alive you know yourself very well now and you don't trust people you know them too well you try to find that 'special person' someone you can be with someone you can touch someone you can talk to someone you won't feel so strange around and you found that they don't really exist you feel closer to people on movie screens yeah, I think I know you you spend a lot of time daydreaming and people have made comment to that effect telling you that you're 'self-involved' and 'self-centered' but they don't know, do they about the long nightshifts alone about the years of keeping yourself company all the nights you wrapped your arms around yourself so you could imagine someone holding you the hours of indecision self-doubt the intense depression the blinding hate the rage that made you stagger the devastation of rejection well maybe they do know but if they do they sure do a good job of hiding it it astounds you how they can be so smooth how they seem to pass through life as if life itself was some divine gift and it infuriates you to watch yourself with your apparent skill, and finding every way possible to screw it up for you, life is a long trip terrifying and wonderful birds sing to you at night the rain and the sun the changing seasons are true friends solitude is a hard won ally faithful and patient yeah, I think I know you

Temporary

AMBER PACIFIC "Truth In Sincerity"
Temporary, But that's the way it has to be It's in my heart, I felt your world has come to rest, As if you're out on your last breath, And slowly fading with these days we choose to miss, Keep holding on, It's not to late Don't make this seem, As if there's nothing left to be There's so much more to life We tend to just forget Don't forget It's just Temporary, But give it time to know it's real Before you're ready To face it and begin to heal Your life's worth living For someone give their all to feel Their heart's stopped beating So give yourself another chance to change With tomorrow comes a better day It's time to start To face the things that you fear most To know you're better off alone To stand up fighting with your will to carry on It's only then Will you see sides that you don't know You're finding paths just take them slow And step by step you'll find It's easy to forget Don't forget It's just Temporary, But give it time to know it's real Before you're ready To face it and begin to heal Your life's worth living For someone give their all to feel Their heart's stopped beating So give yourself another chance to say Swear you'll live by what you know You'll take it in don't let it go More times than not we let them fall It's just Temporary, But give it time to know it's real Before you're ready To face it and begin to heal Your life's worth living For someone give their all to feel Their heart's stopped beating It's just temporary, Well that's the way it has to be But ordinary It takes away from everything It's just temporary But that's the way it has to be

One Thing

ALICIA KEYS "Girl On Fire"
What, where am I? What's life like on a train Nobody there knows your name As your decision changed Do you wish that I came I thought you'd pick me up from work I waited for your truck for half hour I know you said you gonna But I never thought you'd leave [Chorus:] This one thing that was made for us Chasing us, saving us I take one thing over everything I take that thing over anybody Square face and puppy eyes Found out they never lied Your old man lived in the sky Left your house with a yard But you went away a different try Found a place that's your size Too good to finish life here with me I couldn't get you to say Why you wouldn't let me come What should be simple just ain't And it shouldn't hurt like it does [Chorus:] This one thing is made for us Won't stay with us, it ain't saving us But I'll take one thing over everything I'll take that thing over anybody Baby, hold me, don't pick me up I need a compliment Just a touch from a friend I need a gentle word I need your company I'll keep [Chorus:] One thing that was made for us Chasing us, saving us I take one thing over anything I take that thing over anybody I take one thing over everything I take that thing over anybody Oh, oh, anything Oh, oh, take one thing
