ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics - Aretha Now

A Change

Original and similar lyrics
There's an old friend That I once heard say Something that touched my heart And it began this way I was born by the river In a little tent And just like the river I've been runnin' ever since He said it's been a long time comin' But I know my change is gonna come Oh yeah He said it's been too hard livin' But I'm afraid to die I might not be if I knew What was up there beyond the sky It's been a long, a long time comin' But I know my change has got to come Oh yeah I went, I went to my brother And I asked him, "Brother Could you help me, please?" He said, "Good sister I'd like to but I'm not able" And when I, when I looked around I was right back down Down on my bended knees Yes I was, oh There I've been times that I thought I thought that I wouldn't last for long But somehow right now I believe That I'm able, I'm able to carry on I tell you that it's been along And oh it's been an uphill journey All the way But I know, I know, I know I know my change is gonna come Sometimes I had to cry all night long Yes I did Sometimes I had to give up right For what I knew was wrong Yes it's been an uphill journey It's sure's been a long way comin' Yes it has It's been real hard Every step of the way But I believe, I believe This evenin' my change is come Yeah I tell you that My change is come

As Long As We're Here

CLAY AIKEN "On My Way Here"
Why do we have to fight? Why can't spend our time... trying? I wanna be close to you Keep love from slipping through... my hands The words said in anger aimed at someone Are hard to take back once the damage is done Let's stop now.... As long as we're here... alive on this earth I'm gonna love you... for all that it's worth And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly... Let's make the most of of our time As long as we're here... (yeah...) Some people live their lives Holding their fears... inside them Afraid to build windows To let the light of the world in... They hide in the darkness of self-imposed walls If they could just tear them down... they'd have it all As long as we're here... alive on this earth I'm gonna love you for all that it's worth And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly... Let's make the most of of our time As long as we're here... (yeah... yeah... yeah...) When you're with me.... I breathe easy You are my need .. right now love me As long as we're here (as long as we're here) I'm gonna love you (I'm gonna love you) And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly... As long as we're here... alive on this earth I'm gonna love you for all that it's worth And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly... Let's make the most of of our time Oh.. make the most of our time As long as we're here... As long as we're here...

(I'm Gonna) Run Away

JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS "I Love Rock 'N' Roll"
(Joan Jett/Kenny Laguna) I can't take it This is gettin' silly Can't find me no tranquility Anymore, I just can't get through to You We're fakin' it, it's time to admit it You make me feel like an idiot All the time, there's nothin' left for me to do No, so I'm gonna run away I'm never comin' back to you Yeah yeah, I'm gonna run away I'm never comin' back to you We were friends but now you're the enemy Don't need this when there's a remedy It's the end Play your trick on someone new I'm gonna run away I'm never comin' back to you Yeah yeah, I'm gonna run away I'm never comin' back to you Ain't life strange, how people change You were all I wanted once Now you're just a pain, pain I'm gonna run away I'm never comin' back to you Yeah yeah, I'm gonna run away I'm never comin' back to you

Close To The Borderline

BILLY JOEL "Glass Houses"
Blackout, heatwave, .44 caliber homicide The buns drop dead and dogs go mad In packs on the West Side Young girl standing on a ledge looks like another suicide She wants to hit those bricks 'Cause the news at six gotta stick to a deadline While the millionaires hide in Beekman Place The bag ladies throw their bones in my face I get attacked by a kid with stereo sound I don't want to hear it but he won't turn it down Life is tough but it's just enough To hold back the tears until it's closing time I survived, I'm still alive But I'm getting close to the borderline Close to the borderline A buck three eighty Won't buy you much lately on the street these days And when you can get gas You know you can't drive fast anymore on the parkways Rich man, poor man, either way American Shoved into the lost and found The no nuke yell we're gonna all go to hell With the next big meltdown I got remote control and a color T.V. I don't change channels so they must change me I got real close friends that will get me high They don't know how to talk and they ain't gonna try I shouldn't bitch, I shouldn't cry I'd start a revolution but I don't have time I don't know why I'm still a nice guy But I'm getting close to the borderline Close to the borderline I thought I'd sacrifice so many things I thought I'd throw them all away I didn't think I needed anything But you can't afford to squander what you're not prepared to pay I need a doctor for my pressure pills I need a lawyer for my medical bills I need a banker to finance my home I need security to back my loan It isn't new what I'm going through But everybody knows you got to break sometime Another night I fought the good fight But I'm getting closer to the borderline Closer to the borderline

Trying To Reason With Hurricane Season

JIMMY BUFFETT "A1A"
Squalls out on the gulf stream, Big storms coming soon. I passed out in my hammock, God, I slept way past noon. Stood up and tried to focus, I hoped I wouldn't have to look far. I knew I could use a Bloody Mary, So I stumbled next door to the bar. [Chorus:] And now I must confess, I could use some rest. I can't run at this pace very long. Yes, it's quite insane, I think it hurts my brain. But it cleans me out and then I can go on. There's something about this Sunday It's a most peculiar gray Strolling down the avenue That's known as A1A I was feeling tired, then I got inspired. And I knew that it wouldn't last long So all alone I walked back home, sat on my beach And then I made up this song. [Chorus] Well, the wind is blowin' harder now Fifty knots of there abouts, There's white caps on the ocean. And I'm watching for water spouts It's time to close the shutters It's time to go inside. In a week I'll be in gay Paris; That's a mighty long airplane ride. [Chorus] Yes, It cleans me out and then I can go on.
