ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics - Soul '69

Tracks Of My Tears

Original and similar lyrics
People say I'm the life of the party Because I tell a joke or two Well, although I may be laughing loud and hearty Deep inside I'm blue So take a good look at my face You'll see my smile seems out of place And if you look closer, it's easy to trace The tracks of my tears, I need you, need you Since you left, if you see me with someone else Acting like I'm having big fun Well, although he may look fine He's not a really man, you're the only one So take a good look at my face You'll see my smile seems out of place And if you look closer, it's easy to trace The tracks of my tears, I need you, need you I'm masquerading, my hope is fading Since you put me down My smile is my make up I wear since my break up with you Baby, take just one good look at my face You'll see that my smile seems out of place And if you look closer, it's easy to trace The tracks of my tears Oh baby, take just one good look at my face You'll see that my smile is out of place And if you look closer, easy to trace The tracks of my tears, oh Oh, look at my face You'll see that my smile seems out of place And if you look closer

No Wicked Grin

JOHN HIATT "Mystic Pinball"
I can see by your tears With all of the years You still hear the call of the blue And I can see by your face It's a lonely old place You've gone and gotten into I've got this smile I've had for a while It ain't exactly brand new It's no wicked grin It's good and worn in And I'd like to give it to you Through trouble and pain Through wind and through rain I think it will fit you just right When you gave it to me I couldn't be free Now I'm standing right here in your light And when your life's upside down It might look like a frown Depends on how you wanna see So here's lookin' at you And when I'm upside down too It looks like you're smilin' to me I can see by your tears With all of the years You still hear the call of the blue And I can see by your face It's a lonely old place You've gone and gotten into I've got this smile I've had for a while It ain't exactly brand new It's no wicked grin It's good and worn in And I'd like to give it to you

She'll Get Over It

AMANDA STOTT "Chasing The Sky"
In the blink of an eye Sparks fly and fires die Some things weren't meant to last No you won't be the first To break that heart of hers And you won't be the last So let her go let her go let her go Let her go let her go let her go She'll get over it in time One less burden on her mind Hurt a little bit She'll get over it When those tears drop from her face Someone else will take your place And she'll be over you for good So let her go let her go let her go Try to tell her goodbye Oh no your mouth goes dry And your heart start to sink Then you look in her eyes Oh you just might be surprised She's stronger than you think So let her go let her go let her go Let her go let her go let her go She'll get over it in time One less burden on her mind Hurt a little bit She'll get over it When those tears drop from her face Someone else will take your place And she'll be over you for good Make up your mind (make up your mind) You can't take forever She'll get over you in time So let her go let her go let her go She'll get over it in time One less burden on her mind Hurt a little bit She'll get over it When those tears drop from her face Someone else will take your place And she'll be over you for good

No More Rain (In This Cloud)

ANGIE STONE "Black Diamond"
[Intro] No more rain in this cloud No more rain in this cloud [1] - My sunshine has come And I'm all cried out And there's no more rain in this cloud My sunshine has come And I'm all cried out And there's no more rain in this cloud There's no hiding place When someone has hurt you It's written on your face, and it reads 'Broken spirit, lost and confused' 'Empty, scared, used and abused, a fool' Oh, ain't it funny that the way you feel Shows on your face (It's written all over your face, yeah) And the smile you used to wear Seems a little bit out of place (Tracks of your tears) People oh, hold on In time it gets a little better, whoa [Repeat 1] So you want to live and to you I shall give All the space that you requested Hope you don't live to regret it So you say you're in your prime Baby, don't waste your time Remember my love, it's only a thin line (It's never too late) [Repeat 1] Spring has come and winter's gone, my love But don't look around for me, child I'll be gone (I'll be gone, gone, gone, gone) Not afraid because the seasons have changed I'm gonna count my blessing then just follow the sun Cuz you see [Repeat 1 while:] Now, I wanna take a minute to kick it like this Y'all wit' me Y'all know what I'm talkin' about You know what to do There's no hiding place When you're hurting No, no, no Baby, don't want teardrops Drying up on my pillow (I used to think the world of you) Only room for raindrops Don't belong on my smile (Baby) And there's no rain in this cloud (There's, there's nothing I would not do) Baby, don't want teardrops Drying up on my pillow (You broke me down) Only room for raindrops Don't belong on my smile (You broke me way down) And there's no more rain in this cloud (You you you, baby broke me down) [Repeat 1 while:] What goes around, comes around What goes up, must come down Things you do, come back to you Y'all believe that Goes around, comes around What goes up, must come down

There Will Be A Day

JEREMY CAMP "Speaking Louder Than Before"
I try to hold on to this world With everything I have But I feel the weight of what it brings, And the hurt that tries to grab The many trials that seem to never end, His word declares this truth, That we will enter in this rest With wonders anew But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings That there will be a place with no more suffering [Chorus:] There will be a day with no more tears, No more pain, and no more fears There will be a day when the burdens of this place Will be no more, we'll see Jesus face to face But until that day, We'll hold on to you always I know the journey seems so long You feel you're walking on your own But there has never been a step Where you've walked out all alone Troubled soul don't lose your heart Cause joy and peace he brings And the beauty that's in store Outweighs the hurt of life's sting But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings That there will be a place with no more suffering [Chorus] I can't wait until that day Where the very one I've lived for always Will wipe away the sorrow that I've faced To touch the scars that rescued me From a life of shame and misery Oh, this is why, this is why I sing... [Chorus:] There will be a day with no more tears, No more pain, and no more fears There will be a day when the burdens of this place Will be no more, we'll see Jesus face to face There will be a day with no more tears, No more pain, and no more fears There will be a day when the burdens of this place Will be no more, we'll see Jesus face to face There will be a day He will wipe away the tears [3x] There will be a day

Fireline Road

JAMES MCMURTRY "Just Us Kids"
My name is Alice Walker, they never told me why I’m not named for anybody, it’s a name out of the sky They thought it was pretty I guess, way back when I’ll change it some day I like to pretend, I’m Just a visitor here Like on one of those shows In a house full of people I don’t hardly know But we'll all get to home in a week or so Back to real life And I’m picking up the carpet in the corner where I crash I’m too tired to separate the pennies from the trash And I don’t guess it matters even why Jesus died I can tell you about sins They got this duplex up on Fire Line Road It’s way out from town, so the rent’s pretty low, Not much more than a cinder block cell Just like the one next door And the next one as well And the bus don’t run out here but three times a day The 7-11, it’s a full mile away And there’s a car in the yard, mostly rust and dents We moved here in it, but it hasn’t run since Forget my name, can you forget my face Gonna lose myself in some finer place Finer Places, where I’ll go I’ll leave no trace out on Fire Line Road And there’s a pile of daddy’s quick-picks scattered on the floor Among the half empty bottles, that chair against the door In case he comes home drinkin’, with lovin on his mind I’d never let it happen, but that don’t stop him tryin’ My sister weren’t so lucky, he got to her too soon She never saw it coming, he knew just what to do To keep her silent I swear to god I’ll kill him if I can He said she made him do it, after all he’s just a man Forget my name, can you forget my face Gonna lose myself in some finer place Finer Places, where I’ll go I’ll leave no trace out on Fire Line Road Now she snorts that crank, and stares at the phone She ain’t big as a minute, just skin on bone She bites her nails right down to the quick And they’ve taken her babies, and they won’t give them back And I know she loves them and god knows she tries, But when you’re that far down you’re just going to get high It’s like eating or breathing to the rest of us She can’t even feel bad without the stuff Forget my name, can you forget my face Gonna lose myself in some finer place Finer Places, where I’ll go And I’ll leave no trace out on Fire Line Road My name is Alice Walker, they never told me why
