The Exception

Original and similar lyrics
In a paparazzi photograph she was stepping from a car The tired eyes betrayed the smile of the faded singing star At the publishers reception on the launching of her book She told the grimy details and the toll the details took The tours, applause, awards of course But as the years went by, those fundamental things still applied Oh but she thought she'd be the exception Oh yes she thought she'd be the exception But don't we all think we're the exception Sometimes, sometimes The workaholic millionaire and his pretty younger wife Had everything there was out there in the ad mans perfect life But she left him for the milkman and then moved into his flat Everyone said silly girl to do a thing like that The house, the cars, the credit cards but he didn't ask her why He knows that there's some things even cash can't buy Oh yes he thought he'd be the exception Oh yes he thought he'd be the exception But don't we all think we're the exception Sometimes, sometimes If a handout to the hungry and the homeless Is a fiver in the fickle hand of fate Does it mean we'll be there on the guest list When we get to heaven's gate No pain, no gain, that's what they're saying and it's hard to disagree But I thought somehow they weren't including me Oh but I thought I'd be the exception Oh yes I thought I'd be the exception But don't we all think we're the exception Sometimes, sometimes

Sorry, Blame It On Me

AKON "Konvicted"
As life goes on I’m starting to learn more and more about responsibility And I realize everything I do is affecting the people around me So I want to take this time out to apologize for things that I've done And things that haven't occurred yet And the things they don’t want to take responsibility for I’m sorry for the times that I left you home I was on the road and you were alone I’m sorry for the times that I had to go I’m sorry for the fact that I did not know That you were sitting home just wishing we Could go back to when it was just you and me I’m sorry for the times I would neglect I’m sorry for the times I disrespect I’m sorry for the wrong things that I’ve done I’m sorry I’m not always there for my sons I’m sorry for the fact that I'm not aware That you can’t sleep at night when I am not there Because I'm in the streets like everyday I'm sorry for the things that I did not say Like how you are the best thing in my world And how I'm so proud to call you my girl [Bridge:] I understand that there are some problems And I am not too blind to know All the pain you kept inside you Even though you might not show If I can't apologize for being wrong Then it’s just a shame on me I’ll be the reason for your pain and you can put the blame on me [Chorus:] You can put the blame on me [4x] Said you can put the blame on me [3x] You can put the blame on me I'm sorry for the things that he put you through And all the times you didn’t know what to do I'm sorry that you had to go and sell those packs Just trying to stay busy till you heard from Dad And you would rather be home with all your kids As one big family with love and bliss And even though Pops treated us like kings He got a second wife and you didn’t agree He got up and left you there all alone I’m sorry that you had to do it on your own I’m sorry that I went and added to your grief I’m sorry that your son was once a thief I’m sorry that I grew up way too fast I wish I would’ve listened and not be so bad I’m sorry that your life turned out this way I’m sorry that the FEDS came and took me away [Bridge] [Chorus] I’m sorry that it took so long to see They were dead wrong trying to put it on me I’m sorry that it took so long to speak But I was on tour with Gwen Stefani I’m sorry for the hand that she was dealt For the embarrassment that she felt Just a little young girl trying to have fun Her daddy should've never let her out that young I’m sorry for Club Zen getting shut down I hope they manage better next time around How was I to know she was underage In a 21 and older club they say Why doesn’t anybody wanna take blame Verizon backed out disgracing my name I’m just a singer trying to entertain Because I love my fans I’ll take that blame Even though the blame’s on you [3x] I’ll take that blame from you And you can put that blame on me [2x] You can put that blame on me And you can put that blame on me And you can put that blame on me [2x]

Easy Way

First Degree
You acclaim the beauty of the morning Singing in the rain Say how you do You got the easy way, everyday You glide through your life You're delight, your smile is like the ocean Briny wind is on your side Say how you do You never got a doubt, decry about No fears 'bout your fate You don't turn your head just sail away You never mind and make your day You're afraid, nothing's gonna stop you Nobody got's to hate Say how you do You never getting hopeless or helpless No trash on your mind It's a shame you never saw the hungry children You didn't realize the pain Say how you do Your heaven gots no clouds no doubts You don't think about

Solidarity

Five Iron Frenzy "All The Hype That Money Can Buy"
How's your life? How are things? Great they're going okay! Something stale and superficial, not to ruin your day. Something swell, something gay, with the toothiest smile, something sappy, something happy, something smells like bile. I don't want to burst your bubble, not to rain on your parade, underneath my skin I'm tired, limping down the path I've made. The clap of thunder in my veins, breaks on barren manifold, still and small and so mundane, the greatest story ever told. Are you crawling through the dismal? Gray of nothing, frostbite kills. Does this world make light of weaving, Shrouds to bury, graves to fill? I am just a kindred spirity, a runner who is running still. Welcome to the longest mile, the most costly thing you'll ever hold, wonderful is the journey, the greatest story every told. All my dreams are slowly dying. I can count my years in scars. The only one that's never left me, has carried me so very far. I've heard it said that he wastes nothing, so beautiful to behold, the Author of my hope is writing, the greatest story ever told.
