ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics - Get It Right

Better Friends Than Lovers

Original and similar lyrics
Ooooohhh Why are we fighting Why do we scream Seems all we do now is treat each other mean We used to be so understadning About each others ways Seems all we do is get in each other's way Better Friends than lovers (so much better friends) We used to have a ball Let's not wait until the friendship breaks Cause we don't have to lose it all Better friends than lovers Honey can't you see You need you and I need me So its time now to set each other free You get mad when guys stare at me And I'm mad when girls look I don't believe we're ready now For living by this book The things we love about us Are the things we seem to hate When we go out for good times Better Friends than lovers (so much better friends) We used to have a ball Let's not wait until the friendship breaks Cause we don't have to lose it all Better friends than lovers Honey can't you see You need you and I need me So its time now to set each other free We were both out there fishing We weren't ready to care And no room in our hearts for love To love each other back Better Friends than lovers (so much better friends) We used to have a ball Let's not wait until the friendship breaks Cause we don't have to lose it all Better friends than lovers Honey can't you see You need you and I need me So its time now to set each other free Better Friends than lovers (so much better friends) We used to have a ball Let's not wait until the friendship breaks Cause we don't have to lose it all Better friends than lovers Honey can't you see You need you and I need me So its time now to set each other free

A Chair In The Sky

JONI MITCHELL "Mingus"
words by Joni Mitchell music by Charles Mingus The rain slammed hard as bars It caught me--by surprise Mutts of the planet And shook me down for alibis I'm waiting For the keeper to release me Debating this sentence Biding my time In memories Of old friends of mine ... In daydreams of Birdland I see my soul on fire Burning up the bandstand Next time I'll be bigger! I'll be better than ever! I'll be happily attached To my cold hard cash! But now Manhattan holds me To a chair in the sky With the bird in my ears And boats in my eyes Going by There are things I wish I'd done Some friends I'm gonna miss Beautiful lovers I never got the chance to kiss... Daydreamin' drugs the pain of living Processions of missing Lovers and friends Fade in and they fade out again In these daydreams of rebirth I see myself in style Raking in what I'm worth Next time I'll be bigger! I'll be better than ever! I'll be resurrected royal! I'll be rich as standard oil! But now--Manhattan holds me To a chair in the sky With the bird in my ears And boats in my eyes Going by

Every Time You Go

HOODIE ALLEN "Leap Year"
[Intro] I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know Every time you go I know, I know, I know Every time you go I know, I know, I know Every time you go [Verse 1] I can play a little bit of keys But I can't really give you what you need I graduated and you said that if I leave It really wouldn't be easy to put together the piece So nowadays when I call you just to speak I hear a lot of empty spaces in between I see a lot of empty faces in your life But I ain't ever there to tell you that they just oughta peace [Hook] So if you're really gone It only gets better I say I'm moving on It only gets better I try to fill it up And I remember the stuff That made us just wanna rush like fools would do If you really gone It only gets better I say I'm moving on It only gets better And I start to believe that music is what I need Now every story would need to end happily (Everytime you go... happily...) [Hook] And I know, this is hard, this is hard, this is real bad Oh no real bad Cuz I don't even feel bad I know know know, I know know know, I know know know, I know, I know (Every time you go) [Verse 2] And I can play a little bit of "he said" "she said" And I ain't tryna kiss you when you smoking that wee-head And I ain't tryna miss you but I'm coking that bees nasty Tryna get that Honey honey honey ooh honey ima do it again Oh I'm mad cuz I'm thinking that we all cool And now the only thing you're thinking 'bout is law school And a situation that really doesn't involve you Well, then I'm a idiot [Hook] So if you're really gone It only gets better I say I'm moving on It only gets better I try to fill it up And I remember the stuff That made us just wanna rush like fools would do? If you really gone It only gets better I say I'm moving on It only gets better And I start to believe that music is what I need Now every story would need to end happily [Hook] And I know, this is hard, this is hard, this is real bad Oh no real bad Cuz I don't even feel bad I know know know, I know know know, I know know know, I know, I know, I know This is hard, this is hard, this is real bad It's real bad I don't even feel bad I know know know, I know know know, I know, yeah I know Every time you

Spread Your Wings

QUEEN "News Of The World"
Sammy was low Just watching the show Over and over again Knew it was time He'd made up his mind To leave his dead life behind His boss said to him 'Boy you'd better begin To get those crazy notions right out of your head Sammy who do you think that you are ? You should've been sweeping up the Emerald bar' Spread your wings and fly away Fly away, far away Spread your little wings and fly away Fly away, far away Pull yourself together 'Cos you know you should do better That's because you're a free man He spends his evenings alone in his hotel room Keeping his thoughts to himself, he'd be leaving soon Wishing he was miles and miles away Nothing in this world, nothing would make him stay Since he was small Had no luck at all Nothing came easy to him Now it was time He'd made up his mind 'This could be my last chance' His boss said to him 'Now listen boy! You're always dreaming You've got no real ambition, you won't get very far Sammy boy, don't you know who you are ? Why can't you be happy at the Emerald bar ?' So honey Spread your wings and fly away Fly away, far away Spread your little wings and fly away Fly away, far away Pull yourself together 'Cos you know you should do better That's because you're a free man C'mon honey Fly with me

Before You Hit The Ground

JONNY LANG "Wander This World"
(Kevin Bowe, Jonny Lang) I seen every one of the faces you wear Low, high and everything in between Your eyes are fixed on the prize like a dead man's stare Tick. tock. The hands on the clock don't care Buzz is good Feelin' fine One of these days You'll be out of time God ain't gonna look for you Down in the lost and found You better look up or you're gonna be gone Before you hit the ground You'll keep dippin' in til the well run dry Hope you don't get thirsty later I know talking to you's just a waste of my time I'm gonna stop tellin' you how to live your life Chorus Solo One more. Time to score so make it fast When you lose your mind you got no mind left to lose Three, four open the door to your last chance And when you get where you're goin' you won't be comin' back You better look up or you're gonna be gone Before you hit the ground
