ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics - Aretha Sings The Blues

Take A Look

Original and similar lyrics
Take a look in the mirror, look at yourself But don’t you look too close ‘Cause you just might see The person that you hate the most Lord, what’s happenin’ to this human race? I can’t even see one friendly face Brothers fight brothers and sisters wink their eyes While silver tongues bear fruits of poison lies Just take a look at your children born innocent Every boy and every girl Denyin’ themselves a real chance To build a better world Dear Lord, dear Lord , what’s happenin’ to your precious dream? It’s washin’ away on a bloody bloody stream Take a look at your children before it’s too late And tell them nobody wins when the prize is hate

Mercy On Me

PETER ANDRE "Accelerate"
Ever since the day our eyes met, I had made a promise, to be there forever more All the time me walking blindly Couldn't see the right way My life was an open door Your persistence my resistance to your other plans Girl I thought I knew you better Girl we had the world and all the stars Swore I'd never break your heart Did I ever let you down Dear lord have mercy on me 'Coz I can't forgive the things that happened yesterday I was true to her but she left me empty Didn't know the scars could leave a mark that's so deep Dear Lord have mercy on me On my heart, for all that I've been through Like it's not enough all the things she pretended to be I can't believe She lied to me Lord I'm sorry So sorry See the pictures in the papers read the lies on the pages On a day to daily basis But I know the ones, who love me so No matter what I do (My fans I thank you) Sometimes that makes no difference to the way I feel inside (Distancing myself from the world) It hurts so bad to know I may of made My children cry, it breaks my heart Dear lord have mercy on me 'Coz I can't forgive the things that happened yesterday I was true to her but she left me empty Didn't know the scars could leave a mark that's so deep Dear Lord have mercy on me On my heart, for all that I've been through Like it's not enough all the things she pretended to be I can't believe She lied to me Lord I'm sorry So sorry A fairy tale that fell apart I'm sorry but my hearts still in two halves Part of me rewinds again Takes me back to where it all began But you only show what you want them to see And you made your choice and it wasn't me So I'll be moving on I'll be moving on Dear lord have mercy on me 'Coz I can't forgive the things that happened yesterday I was true to her but she left me empty Didn't know the scars could leave a mark that's so deep Dear Lord have mercy on me On my heart, for all that I've been through Like it's not enough all the things she pretended to be I can't believe She lied to me Lord I'm sorry So sorry I hope you find your happiness

I'll Wear It Proudly

ELVIS COSTELLO "King Of America"
I hate these flaming curtains they're not the color of your hair I hate these striplights they're not so undoing as your stare I hate the buttons on your shirt when all I wanna do is tear I hate this bloody big bed of mine when you're not here [chorus] Well I finally found someone to turn me upside down And nail my feet up where my head should be If they had a King of Fools then I could wear that crown And you can all die laughing because I'll wear it proudly Well you seem to be shivering dear and the room is awfully warm In the white and scarlet billows that subside beyond the storm You have this expression dear no words could take its place And I wear it like a badge that you put all over my face [chorus] I'll wear it proudly through the dives and the dancehalls If you'll wear it proudly through the snakepits and catcalls Like a fifteen year old kid wears a vampire kiss If you don't know what is wrong with me Then you don't know what you've missed We are arms and legs wrapped round more than my memory tonight When the bell rang out and the air outside turned blue from fright But in shameless moments you made more of me than just a mess And a handful of eagerness says What do you suggest? [chorus]

JAY ELECTRONICA "The Jay Electronica Project"
[Intro - Martin Luther King Jr.:] We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now Because I’ve been to the mountaintop; I don’t mind Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land! And so I'm happy, tonight I'm not worried about anything I'm not fearing any man! Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!! [Verse 1 - Jay Electronica:] Boom bash dash I had to break, I had to get away Pack my bags, headed for Greyhound, it was a Monday Time to start my mission I felt that burning feeling in my soul, I had to listen I had this re-ocurring dream from the stage in a suit with a fade I had set the game ablaze and they threw me a parade I stacked a little change and took my family out the caves But I was trapped in a maze like a lab rat And at the bottom of the barrel where they keep the crabs at No Geico, no Aflac, nothing to fall back on But the streets where niggas cussed out the police and sold they crack on Better known as back home, where they treat the Arabs and the Spanish and the blacks wrong There he go with that song You may be tired but I spit what I'm inspired From the Lord of the worlds cause the devil is a liar [Hook - Tone Treasure:] Say, I've seen the lightning flashing (yes I did) And I've seen the thunder roar But you can't (you can't keep me down for long) Because I'm getting stronger (Because I keep getting stronger) [Verse 2 - Jay Electronica:] My style is like a shot of Jack Daniels, a baby grand piano Lightening Hopkin, smokin' cigs, strummin' on the banjo The son of man's the son of a gun with hella ammo Sheriffs shootin' Bob Marley, John J. Rambo Six sextillion, 19 million, the holy pyramids say we all Allah's children Voodoo for the pilgrims who bring weapons and conceal 'em They silence you with force and then indoctrinate the children Yo Gabba Gabba, Ahmadinejad will blow up your apartment if you don’t observe the Sabbath I look the devil in his eye and say abracadabra Then drown 'im in the mighty light his brain couldn’t fathom Scrappin' every day, just like fight club A thriller and a smooth criminal like Mike was [Hook]

Charlie Sheen

King's X "Please Come Home...Mr. Bulbous"
It all works out It all works out It all works out It all works out I'm waiting for a word beyond our history And paper tigers dance about within the mystery Clover of substance I can't put my finger on And stepping over sidewalk cracks I'm catching the last one The silent waiting room, the padded soundproof wall Have become much more terrifying than the shadowed hall So you can have your reasons for the bloody war I know I don't want to hate you for what you're not sorry for Kill the king Strip the queen Are you a friend Dear Charlie Sheen Roll over Johnny boy Your song is on the tube And with it died a dream of mine... Releasing the balloon It seems that lately nothing that I ever thought Can stand up to the pressure of the crap that I have bought So turn the page and be sure that you rip it out 'Cause it won't be there otherwise unless we figure out That there are reasons yet behind this bloody war And I don't want to hate you for what you're not sorry for Kill the king Strip the queen Are you my friend Dear Charlie Sheen

Oh My Lord

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds "No More Shall We Part"
I thought I'd take a walk today It's a mistake I sometimes make My children lay asleep in bed My wife lay wide-awake I kissed her softly on the brow I tried not to make a sound But with stony eyes she looked at me And gently squeezed my hand Call it a premonition, call it a crazy vision Call it intuition, something learned from mother But when she looked up at me, I could clearly see The Sword of Damocles hanging directly above her Oh Lord Oh my Lord Oh Lord How have I offended thee? Wrap your tender arms around me Oh Lord Oh Lord Oh My Lord They called at me through the fence They were not making any sense They claimed that I had lost the plot Kept saying that I was not The man I used to be They held their babes aloft Threw marsh mellows at the Security And said that I'd grown soft Call it intuition, call it a creeping suspicion, But their words of derision meant they hardly knew me For even I could see in the way they looked at me The Spear of Destiny sticking right through me Oh Lord Oh my lord Oh Lord How have I offended thee? Wrap your tender arms round me Oh Lord Oh lord Oh My Lord Now I'm at the hairdressers People watch me as they move past A guy wearing plastic antlers Presses his bum against the glass Now I'm down on my hands and knees And it's so fucking hot! Someone cries, 'What are you looking for?' I scream, 'The plot, the plot!' I grab my telephone, I call my wife at home She screams, 'Leave us alone!' I say, 'Hey, it's only me' The hairdresser with his scissors, he holds up the mirror I look back and shiver; I can't even believe what I can see Be mindful of the prayers you send Pray hard but pray with care For the tears that you are crying now Are just your answered prayers The ladders of life that we scale merrily Move mysteriously around So that when you think you're climbing up, man In fact you're climbing down Into the hollows of glamour, where with spikes and hammer With telescopic camera, they chose to turn the screw Oh I hate them, Ma! Oh I hate them, Pa! Oh I hate them all for what they went and done to you Oh Lord Oh my Lord Oh Lord How have I offended thee? Wrap your tender arms round me Oh Lord Oh Lord Oh My Lord
