ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics - What You See Is What You Sweat

I Dreamed A Dream

Original and similar lyrics
There was a time when men were kind When their voices were soft And their words inviting There was a time when love was blind And the world was a song And the song was exciting There was a time Then it all went wrong I dreamed a dream in time gone by When hope was high And life worth living I dreamed that love would never die I dreamed that God would be forgiving Then I was young and unafraid And dreams were made and used and wasted There was no ransom to be paid No song unsung, no wine untasted But the tigers come at night With their voices soft as thunder As they tear your hope apart And they turn your dream to shame He slept a summer by my side He filled my days with endless wonder He took my childhood in his stride But he was gone when autumn came And still I dream he'll come to me That we will live the years together But there are dreams that cannot be And there are storms we cannot weather I had a dream my life would be So different from this hell I'm living So different now from what it seemed Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.

A Song For You

LEON JACKSON "Right Now"
I've been so many places in my life and time I've sung a lot of songs I've made some bad rhymes I've acted out my life on stages with ten thousand people watching But we're alone now and I'm singing this song to you I know your image of me is what I hope to be, I've treated you unkindly But Darling can't you see There's no one more important to me Baby, can't you see through me, 'cause we're alone now And I'm singing this song for you, you taught me precious secrets Of a true love withholding nothing, you came out in front When I was hiding, But now am so much better An if my words don't come together,listen to the melody 'Cause my love is in there hiding I love you in a place where there's no space or time, I love you from my life Your a friend of mine, and when my life is over Remember, when we were together We were alone, and I was singing this song to you I love you in a place where there's no space or time, I love you from my life Your a friend of mine, and when my life is over Remember,remember when we were together We were alone, and I was singing this song to you We were alone, and I was singing this song to you. We were alone, and I was singing this song to you.

Shh... [Aesop Rock (Dose One):] (Well or, and this is, New York City) Where the shiftiest sources leak out the back door For more and this is New York City (Oh, I see these hear walk I, simply a shade of shepherd Seems we share fate, honestly) Oh, now wait a minute I notice there making mockeries of mad men Tend not to bend in the honesty My twenty thousand leagues ending grants sardonic, the sea (The view from this here segue crowds a listeners nothing special simply Listeners, how we dissolve it's spores and I'll tell you not flying) And I live beneath the scenic yeah, where the fossils pledged allegiance Where the centipedes and serpents bigot on territorial disagreements, The uprooted turned booty and hacked pleasure to skinny ribbons and I'll Suckle my skull caught beneath assumptions pumping pistons (Left the joke to wick, it, He walks whose out now, we, Aesop walls up) We tune out the pouts of hiding, Twilight street merchants, we, deity freely and been here before... [Dose One (Aesop Rock):] Murder, of holy, in cushion Partisan, part of the ceiling seems to be leaking, oh, oh, it's the wall Forbid box been broken, from man of everywhere, that's what I sleep, I love you It's not easy tying knots, whose paycheck may get rained Outstanding I shall smudge, invest, it's dull here, since we need I go beyond Grey, lonely, this forest is very very different, Friend hail things like magnets all the way meant was (It only takes one slacker) Traveling up, it only takes one slacker [Aesop Rock:] It only takes one slacker, to attack a lack, gritty and complies with time With regulations poachers poaching just to jump the batteries I'm juiced, noosed father, no dissed deduce By the ambiance of motives and the modus operandi's I'm supportive, sort of here to modify those monsters Tried to side wind pleasure captains round my hip line, My sit times on some here I lay my bricks alone to build these walls among Us dreams can spread our spores but can I run with the alumnus fungus After date rape, and it germs, and I burn for less fortunate starlight Chasers forced to use there last match to ward off the glaciers Pack a day profess cloud spitter literate pencifist missed the pissed drunk of concert Dull and system missed the funk I'm in a lull [Dose One: Overlaps Aesop Rock's lines] I'm thinking of a number from one to red, is a beautiful color To shade paper hat ink, I'm thinking of a beautiful color... Paper hat [Aesop Rock:] I'm thinking of a number From one to home, one riduiculous tennament with no wings to spread I'm home again inside my box of cardboard daze, I'm thinking of home And I'm home again... [Aesop Rock (Dose One):] (Funny how, faces show up, waters for me, my mouth and snore) It could've been me but it wasn't The crash and burn and burn and crash infected could collect fee indirectly but it doesn't (These are broken cards given To dues missed of friendly lips tied life is going blank, slap look, It's mirrored universe and one god per so many square feet, and Everything counts, higher life forms are dirty, dirty Aesop, every penny Saved, is this the city of dreams?) And I'm down to Earth (I'm down to earth, road) My zero hour snuffed doc, where the marked the day the mirth burns The time allotted, knotted loops around the plotted, boycotted the wattages Toys for the prodding of the rotting bottled hostage One time down cloud me as the useless playtime string and think it smirked Worthy well, your with me, from the icicle sweat to the self pity Sickly thread bare slid back my needle point life willow Man I purposely spun straw to gold to lace each last stitch perfectly It must have been the dust, the dust, my god, the dust he clutched the Dust, father to rust encrust the luck with which I touch togetherness... (Toy, bird, in my teeth, empathy, dwell, in merciful spring, friend)

Take Time

JON YOUNG
We've all lost somebody Close to us we love dearly, Hard to discuss but I done lost a few were close near me. I know the times were hard, Felt no one on ur side. I wish he talked about it Instead he took his life. And now we all hurt, Teary eyed and askin why? His momma cryed, And I can try to say its Alright. But deep inside Im hurtin, So whats I spose to do? Cuz I wish he woulda thought of what he'd go and put us through. We mourn his death. But more importantly rejoice his life. We laugh at pictures, And forget about the stress n strife. We tell our stories bout him Like “dogg remember when?” The memorys and thoughts My God its like they'll never end. But that's a good thing, Cuz even though he gone from us. He in our hearts and Anytime he never far from us. So take the time And remember those we have lost. No longer with us but Never ever have we forgot. [REFRAIN:] Take time to remember cuz you by my side. Take time to remember how you touched my life. Take time cuz we always gone miss you, Anytime, Anywhere, cuz our thoughs are always with you. [REPEATED] Dark times, dark skys, While the rain drops. It hides the tears and I pray to make the pain stop. I even plea bargain, Beg to God to bring him back. If times were like they were Then I wouldn't have to sing this track. But I can't change what happens, Only deal with what life gives me. I ask my father and I hope he's proud of the life I'm living. I hope he can forgive me, For the wrongs I have committed. Its been so many years And damn homie I still miss him. I make this song for all of ya'll Who ever lost some body. Your mother, brother, sister, lover, Best friend, uncle, cousin. And it don't matter how they lost life, The point is, That they memory will live on Through rejoicing. Don't be afraid to talk to em, I promise that they hear you. You didn't get to say good-bye? Say it now, they right near you. So take a minute, Think about it and remember them. I know it can be hard But I promise that you'll meet again. [REFRAIN x2]

God Don't Make Mistakes

JAMIE O'NEAL
It was one of those days when she couldn't find a single ray of sunshine There wasn't even a cloud up in the sky After thirteen years at the factory they sorry mam but we're downsizin That's the way life is, good luck with the rest of it She looked me in the eye and said this ain't the first time I've taken the fall, but let me tell you girl what's gotten me through is keepin faith through it all Cause there'll be Dead ends and road blocks, Tough times and hard knocks Seems like you're always wonderin why you're at the right place at the wrong time Wheels movin but you feel stuck, like your life's spinnin in a big mud When you're out there runnin around on a wild goose chase, There's a reason to keep believin, God don't make mistakes Everybody said you gotta give it up You can't keep that child, It's just too tough at seventeen, You're just a baby Well she cried and she prayed, made up her mind Said this beautiful life that's growin inside needs a chance to have a hand in God's plan Everyone told her they'd never by, well he just turned sixteen Made it straight to the top of his class, the captain of the football team Yeah, there'll be Dead ends and road blocks, Tough times and hard knocks Seems like you're always wonderin why you're at the right place at the wrong time Wheels movin but you feel stuck, like your life's spinnin in a big mud When you're out there runnin around on a wild goose chase, There's a reason to keep believin, God don't make mistakes Oh, there'll be Dead ends and road blocks, Tough times and hard knocks Seems like you're always wonderin why you're at the right place at the wrong time Wheels movin but you feel stuck, like your life's spinnin in a big mud When you're out there runnin around on a wild goose chase, There's a reason to keep believin, Keep believin! God don't make mistakes! Yeah, yeah Oh, God don't make mistakes!

Whiskey Lullaby

ALISON KRAUSS "A Hundred Miles Or More: A Collection"
She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind Until the night 1st Chorus He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger And finally drank away her memory Life is short but this time it was bigger Than the strength he had to get up off his knees We found him with his face down in the pillow With a note that said I'll love her till I die And when we buried him beneath the willow The angels sang a whiskey lullaby (Sing lullaby) The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath She finally drank her pain away a little at a time But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind Until the night 2nd Chorus She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger And finally drank away his memory Life is short but this time it was bigger Than the strength she had to get up off her knees We found her with her face down in the pillow Clinging to his picture for dear life We laid her next to him beneath the willow While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby
