ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics - Aretha (With The Ray Bryant Combo)

Today I Sing The Blues

Original and similar lyrics
Without a word of warnin' The blues walked in this mornin' And circled around my lonely room. I didn't know why I had that sad 'n lonely feelin' Until my baby called and said we were through, hooo. For yesterday this time I sang a lovesong But today... I'm singing the blues. Now, I know the explanation But to me that's no consolation No, no, it just goes to show you No matter how you love, everybody has got to lose And since I've lost, I'd rather walk around and woe I guess I just walk the darkest avenue For yesterday this time I sang a lovesong But today... I'm singing the blues. Now, it strikes me kinda funny how love can be this way 'Cause we were lovin' 'til last night honey, yeah. I'm alone again today And it strikes me kinda funny how fate can be so unfair 'Cos I seem to come right on the losin' end in every, every love affair! Yes it must be, it must be meant for me that I should be the one, Be the one to always lose, hooo. For yesterday this time I sang a lovesong But right now... I'm singing the blues.

UnOpened

SONATA ARCTICA "Ecliptica"
Another misspelled rhyme written in the book of time In one page I've spent all my life Ink ain't even dry. I've been living in a lie How could I trust in someone of your kind And I got today another letter in the mail I can't read it here, not today And when years go by the unopened letter meets my eye I'm older and wiser, but still afraid What if I read it and it is - full of love How can I face it if I am wrong Do you feel Do you care about me Did you wait and love all this time I am here, would you come and find me does your writing guide me thru this all What if I'll read it and it is - full of love What if you'll tell me that I am wrong Do you feel Do you care about me Did you wait and love all this time I am here, would you come and find me does your writing guide me thru this all Mary-Lou (Tony Kakko) Mamas put your babies to sleep, story too cruelsome for them this is. In Junior high she said goodbye to her parents and ran away with a boy. She left her family warm and kind, all of her friends said you´re out of your mind . Life of her own she would find, it´s monday and she´s gotta grind. A Job as a waitress she sure was to find, beautiful face, mind of a child. Boy got her pregnant, Mary-Lou cried, For this I am too young oh why did you lie You said it´s okay if we do it today , I was so scared that you would go away. Despite all the papers been signed, mama take me back be so kind . Only a child, reckless and wild, needs to come home again. He promised the moon but won´t marry you. Nothing to do, eating for two, he´s goin´ out with someone new. Sunshine or rain, it´s all the same, life isn´t gray oh Mary-Lou. Mamas do your children still sleep, in the safe of their cradles so sweet. Story I told you I have forseen, Your little angel ain´t always so clean. Days to come aren´t easy to see, You can change ´em but it isn´t free. I see that you don´t believe, ooo-oo, but you will see.

Stormy Love

RICK JAMES "Fire It Up"
Today my love is like a raging storm The emptiness surrounds me, and I am torn and lost Within the realm that you are gone Drowning am I in a pool of tears To think that for years to come I must live alone without you The only one I've ever loved And in the night my heart must reminisce And I savor each memory of you Like a fine wine It is said that time will heal the wounds of all men As for me there is no time and no cure For the love you gave was pure Until this day the gods have not forgiven me for betraying you And you, do you lie awake at night with thoughts of me in your head? Is there another lover, a stranger beside you in your bed? To take the place of me These words and thoughts from me to you Will come and go in space and time And I'll never forget that once you were mine If saying come back will bring you here I'd say come back my dear As for now my love is like a storm today

Last One Singin' The Blues

Carpenters
I've always tried to level with you eye to eye I finally found the devil in you by and by But I don't really want to be the Last one singing the blues When it comes to fiction you're the best I've met But all those little lies Are gonna get you yet But I don't really want to be the Last one singin' the blues (*) You say that you love me But if you really love me Then why do you treat me this way Your game is that you're gone again It's off and then it's on again Well someday I won't play If all I do is catch you in the same old lies I'll just have to look at you With different eyes 'Cause I don't really want to be The last one singin' the blues Repeat (*) Well fate will soon determine you're the one to lose I'll be the one who's handin' you your walkin' shoes 'Cause I don't really want to be The last one singin' the blues Yeah, I don't really want to be The last one singing the blues

That Was Yesterday

FOREIGNER "Agent Provocateur"
I thought I knew you well But all this time I could never tell I let you get away Haunts me every night and every day You were the only one The only friend that I counted on How could I watch you walk away I'd give anything to have you here today But now I stand alone with my pride And dream that you're still by my side But that was yesterday I had the world in my hands But it's not the end of my world Just a slight change of plans That was yesterday But today life goes on No more hiding in yesterday 'Cause yesterday's gone Love, my love I gave it all Thought I saw the light When I heard you call Life that we both could share Has deserted me Left me in despair But now I stand alone with my pride Fighting back the tears I never let myself cry But that was yesterday Love was torn from my hands But it's not the end of my world Just a little hard to understand That was yesterday But today life goes on You won't find me in yesterday's world Now yesterday's gone Goodbye yesterday Now it's over and done Still I hope somewhere deep in your heart Yesterday will live on

The Blues Man

ALAN JACKSON "Under The Influence"
He's just a singer A natural born guitar ringer Kind of a clinger to sad old songs He's not a walk behinder He's a new note finder His name's a reminder of a blues man That's already gone So he started drinking and took somethings That meesed up his thinking He was sure sinking when she came along He was born in the spot light not to much left inside She changed all that one night When she sang him this song Hey baby I love you Hey baby I need you Hey baby you ain't got to prove to me Your some kind of macho man You wasted so much of your life running through the dark nights Let me shine a little love light down on the blues man He got so sick of speeding all things They said he was needing if he was to keep on pleasing all of his fans He got cuffed on dirt roads He got sued over no shows She came and took all that old down off of that blues man And he sang Hey baby I love you to Hey baby I need you Hey baby I do get tired of this traveling band I'm over 40 years old now Nights would be so cold now i If you hadn't stuck it out with this blues man I'm over 40 years old now Nights would be so cold now If she hadn't hung around with that blues man.
