CHRIS REA lyrics - Chris Rea

Guitar Street

Original and similar lyrics
There's a crazy sense of duty As he licks between his fingers Wipes the ketchup from his face and hands There's a strong determination That his teachers never witnessed Never close enough to understand He's like a bull just bred for fighting He don't deliver nothing Outside the only thing that he knows School report just says he's lazy His brother says he's crazy But take a look 'cos there he goes Through the avenues of fashion To the palaces of dreams All the way down Guitar Street To some guitars are hot-rods All along the quest for macho To others a would-be ticket out of town For Joe a six-string sten gun In the 'Panto-revolution' And Stevie's all just strictly sound He's like a bull just bred for fighting He don't deliver nothing Outside the only thing that he knows School report just says he's lazy His brother says he's crazy But anyway take a look 'cos there he goes Through the avenues of fashion To the palaces of dreams All the way down Guitar Street

Lawless Avenues

JACKSON BROWNE "Lives In The Balance"
(Jorge Calderon & Jackson Browne) Papa hit him, Mama kissed him Made him go to Catechism With the sisters in their black and white And all the time those city streets Were teaching him another kind of wisdom When to run and when to fight Up at the playground after school Listening to tales of the prison system And those lawless avenues Dawn on a half darkened street A child's footsteps repeat And something there turns them Down those lawless avenues Silent Joe went down so bad He was the strongest fighter the avenues had Stabbed in the chest he went down swinging Someone from some other part of town No one even seen it coming down And you don't hear no church bells ringing And in the violent night the police light Sweeps across the lots and the yards Following those lawless avenues Down on a half darkened street Armies advance and retreat And struggle to take control From those lawless avenues Manuelito's sister Rosa Ran away with a surfer from Hermosa Manuelito, cuida a Rosa, Hay mira como estan las cosas! (Manuelito take care of Rosa ...Look at how things are) But who could blame her after she saw Every boy die who could have gotten close to her Rosa es joven u solo quiere ver la belleza del mundo (Rosa is young and only wants To see the beauty of the world) Manuel said: 'You gotta fight for what you want in this life' Just before they shipped him overseas to 'Nam Otra guerra sin razon Otra guerra sin fin, sin honor (Another war without reason, Another war without end, without honor) And she was fighting to understand When they shipped Manuelito's body home All she heard was one more shot Echoing down lawless avenues Hoy amigo, tal igual como ayer, La lucha en el barrio no cambia Nuestros hijos son los que han de crecer Por ley de la calle, viviendo entre abrazos Y chingazos (Today my friend, just like yesterday, The struggle in the barrio doesn't change. Our children are the ones to grow up By the law of the street Living between hugs and blows) Down on a half darkened street Fathers' and sons' lives repeat And something there turns them Down those lawless avenues En el calor de la calle (In the heat of the street) Buscan valor en la calle (Looking for valor in the street) Hasta final de la calle (Till the end of the street)

Can't Stop Me

JADAKISS "The Last Kiss"
[Verse 1:] Mhmm, yes, I does that. Stays hot, I ain't got to get my buzz back What everybody trying to be now; I was that They could never stop me; that's why I love rap Been living the life, praising ice. Bang the baddest chicks in the world, maybe twice The swag, the gear, the bread, all the whips is a year ahead I only fear the FEDs Forty-five on the other side of the peep hole Head shot from point blank; call it a free throw Funny, 'cause I had divisions since Calico Back then, I still ain't reached my peak, though Louie loafers, Pollo pea coat Call me whenever the bosses meet, yo I drove papi crazy, so the industries never gonna stop me, baby [Verse 2:] I'm gonna call it confidence, 'cause I ain't cocky I just know one thing: They can't stop me Whether I'm on "Ef" or LA, or they swap me; it's all good, because I know the gangsters got me First thing's first "they jar us" abruptly I treat the rap game like a large monopoly One on one they can't guard me properly But when they double team me the odds are sloppy I move like them eighty milligrams of oxy Send your sister back to your family knockneed Got too hot for the grams, and got weed In the rap bracket he remains the top seed Revolver holds six; quick to blow three Audio heroin, so you don't OD Shooters know you, but you don't know me The block is crazy, can't stop me, baby [Verse 3:] Once I start I ain't gonna stop the squeezing And the gauze ain't gon' be able to stop the bleeding And your girl ain't gon' be able to stop the weezing When she get that phone call from the doc; we even You could not stop me, so stop believing Ring tone rap, this is not the season I punch lines hard enough to stop your breathing And the ladies will still pay a lot to see him I'm gonna get rich long as I got my freedom And usually when you get hit it's for a reason If you in the hood, better dodge the Ds, and watch your Qs, and be on your Ps, and Thank you all for coming out this evening Having a good time with your liquor, and treason Even if they knock me, then continue to watch me They still wouldn't be able to stop me

Marriott, U.S.A.

JOAN BAEZ
My name is Chaffey, I'm from Marriott, U.S.A. I'm a high school graduate and I'm looking for a way To chase my future down and lay it at my feet So I can answer all the questions of my old friends on the street I lie awake at night and I think about the years The petty victories and all the hidden tears And about the girl I love who had to set me free She said she'd never marry anyone ambitionless as me The Marriott Daily is delivered to my door It brings the outside in and I've seen it all before Though all my golden dreams and all my brazen schemes May scatter like a rainbow on an open sea Oh no, you won't find me staring down an M16 You took my brother from the Marriott High School all-star team You took my brother from Marriott and from me My dad's made window shades for twenty-seven years He's had his share of laughter and an equal share of tears And I still live in the second room of my parent's hall My brother watches me from the stationary frame upon the wall Mom tends the garden and occasionally perms her hair She's not political, she sticks to her own affairs But they voted the cowboy in and they think he's doing fine He's created some very new and interesting, innovative lies And the Marriott Daily is delivered to my door It brings the outside in and I've seen it all before Though all my golden dreams and all my brazen schemes May scatter like a rainbow on the open sea Oh no, you won't find me staring down an M16 You took my brother from the Marriott High School all-star team You took my brother from Marriott and from me We celebrated when they came home from Iran We tied a bunch of yellow ribbons on the van Drove into Marriott, went into church and prayed But secretly I asked the Lord if this is how heroes are made Speaking of heroes, a word about my dad Son of mine, take your time 'cause now you're all we have And if you refuse to go, I'll support you all the way And that will surely be a first for the folks in Marriott, U.S.A. And the Marriott Daily is delivered to my door It brings the outside in and I've seen it all before Though all my golden dreams and all my brazen schemes May scatter like a rainbow on an open sea Oh no, you won't find me staring down an M16 You took my brother from the Marriott High School all-star team You took my brother from Marriott and from me

Laugh At You

ABK (ANYBODY KILLA) "Dirty History"
A mind is a terrible thing to waste High school reunion wouldn't show my face I was always looked at a little different And I got blamed for everything, even if I ain't do the shit It was hectic, a total fuckin' nightmare A room full of preps, and one thug with braided hair Runnin' through the halls screamin' "Fuck all ya'll!" Brass knuckle punch jackin' all jock's jaws Insane in the cranium, people always starin' Pointin' at me, laughin' close enough so I can hear 'em Until the day that I got my revenge When they found one student stabbed to death with a pen Whole school goin' through some emotional stress Gotta half day off cause of that bullshit Let me take another victim see if I can get a whole day Remember that bitch Lisa? They just found her in the hallway I ain't playin' no more, stop laughin' 'Cause all that chit-chattin' as got this killa crackin' Teacher's pet, bullethole in ya chest Whole football team damn near layed to rest Half the students missin', and no one knows shit They haven't got a clue that it was all me, bitch Higher education learn a little something ya'self Who's next to be got, not too many left I'm so glad this year's almost over And maybe next year, before they laugh, they'll look over the shoulder New students comin' in, I'mma still be in the same grade Murder after murder all the way until I graduate Crazy killa, crazy killa's what they call me No evidence, but I'm still the number one suspect Never once was invited to a party And if I ever was, all I'd do is bring bloodshed [Chorus 2x] They don't like me They don't want me Ever since I got here They treated me strange They got me going crazy Ain't nobody feelin' my pain Shed no more tears So many years, my head's been clear But now I understand to make all those around fear [Repeat 25x until end, through all the chaotic sounds] They're all gonna laugh at you!

Reason 346

JIMMY EAT WORLD "Jimmy Eat World"
They're disregarding us telling me I'm blind. Trying to rid my mind, and if worst comes to worst I think I'll be first to never be the same. We're not to blame. I wasn't there. Hair in her eyes and it didn't cost a thing. Fell to my knees. Stuck on like fleas. Saw on TV and it took effect. And who were they to judge It could've be way worse, it didn't have to strain. They bound us sleep which didn't mean a thing. Calling in for free. Sick of being down while coming through a fall. I want out. We're not to blame. I wasn't there. Hair in her eyes and it didn't cost a thing. Fell to my knees. stuck on like fleas. Saw on TV and it took effect. Come on down. Come on down. Now round this (chos ) found an (ink ) Where not one trace left of you that's clear where found your face. Dreams and my full Circle K, dreams and my full Circle K, dreams and my full Circle K. That's where your mom can find you now.
