Billy Dean lyrics

Northern Industrial Town

Original and similar lyrics
I went out drinking with Thomas Paine He said that all revolutions are not the same They are as different as the cultures That give them birth For no one idea Can solve every problem on Earth So don't expect it all to happen In some prophesized political fashion For people are different And so are nations You can borrow ideas But you can't borrow situations In Leningrad the people say Perestroika can be explained this way The people who told us that two and two is ten Are now trying to tell us the two and two is five We're living in a North Sea Bubble We're trying to spend our way out of trouble You keep buying these things but you don't need them But as long as you're comfortable it feels like freedom My American friends don't know what to do But they'll wait along time for a Beverley Hills coup War! What is it good for It's good for business

Legend In My Living Room

ANNIE LENNOX "Diva"
When I was just seventeen I ran away from home To be with all the pretty people To be on my own. Bright lights and trains and bedsit stains And pavements paved with gold And I believed in everything That everybody told me... Have mercy Have mercy on me. I found myself in a lonely place With a suitcase full of dreams And I soon grew up to realize What living in the doghouse means. But everyday I told myself Good things gonna happen soon 'Cause I knew that I was going to be A legend in my living room. Have mercy Have mercy on me. (Welcome to this perfect world) Now everyday on a dead end street Is where I spend my time. The dust has been collecting On the corners of my mind. But I've shed my tears in bitter drops Until the thorn trees bloomed To take the spiky fruit To crown myself the Queen of doom. Have mercy Have mercy on me.

Excess

I believe in I deceive in Bottom weaving I can breathe in Make a wish in Flower fishing Moving vibration Mild relation I'm jamaican on your radio station Got a curse in Could be worse in You first In a hearse in Good as dead in Nothing left in Nothing left in Some be heading I need a head rest in And a feed from a warm breast A man making hits With my child-bearing hips Underground like Who's it sound like You all sound the same But you don't know my name I believe in people lying I believe in people dying I believe in people trying I believe in people crying I believe in people balking I believe in people talking I believe in people breathing I believe in people being We all sound the same You don't know my name Rearrange and Things don't change Things remain Feel the strain Stress Catch my breath (There'll be a new tale of) Get some rest (He and I) From the mess (In fact any time) I couldn't care less (Every day) Sugar cane (Write fictional stories) Is like smack to my vein Shook fame (If you want to) But I don't complain (On the street) I believe in different reasons I believe in breath through seasons I believe when snow flakes fall I believe in buildings tall I believe in people bombing I believe in people warring I believe diseases coming I believe that's why I'm running Keep living Keep living You gotta ask (There'll be a new tale of) Before he attacks (He and I) You got the flats (In fact any time) Dub my sacks (Every day) You've got the city (Writing fictional stories) Move out of the country I'm scrunching (If you want to) Friends that are punchy (On the street) I believe in people falling I believe in people warring I believe diseases coming I believe that's why I'm running I believe in people balking I believe in people talking I believe in people breathing I believe in people being Keep living(X6)

Fly Away

JOHN DENVER "Windsong"
It's cold here in the city It always seems that way And I've been thinking about you almost everyday Thinking about the good times Thinking about the rain Thinking about how bad it feels alone again I'm sorry for the way things are in China I'm sorry things ain't what they used to be But more than anything else I'm sorry for myself 'Cause you're not here with me Our friends all ask about you I say you're doing fine And I expect to hear from you almost anytime But they all know I'm crying And I can't sleep at night They all know I'm dying down deep inside I'm sorry for all the lies I told you I'm sorry for the things I didn't say But more than anything else I'm sorry for myself I can't believe you went away I'm sorry if I took some things for granted I'm sorry for the chains I put on you But more than anything else I'm sorry for myself For living without you

Plain Truth

DEVO "Total Devo"
who are you and who am I except a couple of people wasting lots of time worrying about the future forever asking why some people go on living while others die before their time yet there's never been a reason whatever is is right if only just because its much too big a fight like the painter who is way ahead or worse still far behind you only punch yourself out when you start swinging blind these are the things too often gone unsaid these are the things that keep you better off than dead these are the things that keep running through your head woo oooo these are the things too often gone unsaid who are you and who am I except a couple of people with nothing else to do but follow vain obsessions making gestures towards the truth while trying to ignore it when its convenient to the symbols we believe in sometimes turn inside out reshaping each dimension were so sure about dreams get so frustrated fantasies turn pranks a simple ounce of common sense is money in the bank.

Poems, Prayers And Promises

JOHN DENVER "Poems, Prayers And Promises"
I've been lately thinking About my life's time All the things I've done And how it's been And I can't help believing In my own mind I know I'm gonna hate to see it end I've seen a lot of sunshine Slept out in the rain Spent a night or two all on my own I've known my lady's pleasures Had myself some friends And spent a night or two in my own home And I have to say it now It's been a good life all in all It's really fine To have a chance to hang around And lie there by the fire And watch the evening tire While all my friends and my old lady Sit and pass the pipe around And talk of poems and prayers and promises And things that we believe in How sweet it is to love someone How right it is to care How long it's been since yesterday And what about tomorrow And what about our dreams And all the memories we share The days they pass so quickly now Nights are seldom long And time around me whispers when it's cold The changes somehow frighten me Still I have to smile It turns me on to think of growing old For though my life's been good to me There's still so much to do So many things my mind has never known I'd like to raise a family I'd like to sail away And dance across the mountains on the moon I have to say it now It's been a good life all in all It's really fine To have the chance to hang around And lie there by the fire And watch the evening tire While all my friends and my old lady Sit and watch the sun go down And talk of poems and prayers and promises And things that we believe in How sweet it is to love someone How right it is to care How long it's been since yesterday What about tomorrow What about our dreams And all the memories we share
