HOWARD JONES lyrics - In The Running

City Song

Original and similar lyrics
It was that night at nowhere, I saw you standing there Darlin' you were hungry for life, an innocent in this land What is it about this city, that brings us all to life Ten millions souls vibrating, They're shimmering in the night You mustn't think of staying, The price is more than you'd think It's giving up the sweetest part of you, For this heartless prize When does a vision of heaven become a living hell Ten million souls vibrating, they're acting it out for real Where do all the lonely people go, When they want some lovin' Where do all the lonely people hide, when they feel like cryin' It was that night at nowhere, a cold glass in your hand Darlin' you were angry with life, a prisoner in this land What is it about this city, that brings us all to life Ten millions souls vibrating, They're shimmering in the night Where do all the lonely people go, When they want some lovin' Where do all the lonely people hide, when they feel like cryin' Where do all the lonely people go, in this crowded city Where do all the lonely people hide, there's no sanctuary Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide Nowhere to handshake, nowhere to smile Won't you talk with me Spend some time and give me life When does a vision of heaven become a living hell Ten million souls vibrating They're shimmering in the night Where do all the lonely people go, in this crowded city Where do all the lonely people hide, there's no sanctuary A vision of heaven A vision of heaven

California Dreamin'

Dream Warriors
[Featuring GangStarr] [Chorus] the life you is walking through such a bitch day in to day out the same old thing kid [Verse 1 Spek] bring me to the end and I'll be me open up your eyes wide so you can see it's thick to be me how I kick my rhymes down pat within the circle how we do when we kick that fact but where's the meaning? I take it one night by one night but where's the meaning? I take it one day by every day I pick a rhyme I chose and put it number one inside my placement so look to find the signs inside my basement no tears sell us full of samples with ample time to loop it's just the beats from the dead from my head with my troop and it be cool if all the time was like studio time but days are long enough for Spek with the rest of my time I think I'm manic depressive and not agressive enough you can try to be hard but damn you still won't be rough life is whack for the ?? life is phat if you flow life is waitin' for a deal when you like got no dough [Chorus] [Verse 2 - Spek, Lu] in the middle of my nights I check my late night flicks I'm up at night trying to write and late night I get my kicks that is I'm out to get my main feature the low budget picture in my room and in between I write scriptures picture this the day's just a claender's notch and every kid becomes the one who wanna ride it on the crotches and when I'm finished when my flick is almost done when my rhyme is half done when I check a late re-run I lose to the groove soul sounds soothe me well sometimes my mind wonders sometimes heaven could be hell I pass the fools who has never known my name when I think about the deal sometimes I need someone to blame I add members to the show who knows a fan for the ones that wanna capture the essence of level to the hip-hop their directions they groke who's representing us? the critics holy smoke [Chorus] [Verse 3 - Lu] place text in images replacing old versions documents displayed as homemade glue without a clue you your loophole is deckin' in the halls to ring bells in fear of losing clientels my work place is infinite but can't plan it like my screens appearance is translusive but with a hard ??? I display I cruhser critics as easy as... skip this step if you wanna control key available to only keyboards you can't afford Q he's the shift he's the roller can't understand your education is basic (science) so many words and everything is being said yet people get pissed when people wanna your way but not their way so which way's the right way I'm going hungry in the belly of the beast that uncleans the serpent I walk like the lion I'm a leash [Chorus]

Regrets

Black Train Jack
Up in the morning got to get outside A few hours early to get some overtime The sun splashes on the wall right after dawn Charge his battery got to last all night Coffee and a cigarette starts his day off right In Central Park a dog runs across the lawn Regrets Work every day just trying to stay ahead Slaving like an animal he wishes he was dead Uptown downtown through the underground New York subways make a certain sound Everybody's got somewhere to go He thinks to himself as he looks to check the time The latent images in other peoples minds Autumn mornings have thoughts all their own This cannot be what life is for He's fighting a war Just to remain alive On the way home he stops At the local video store Because he rented Annie Hall On the night before He's got a burritto in his bag He's staying in tonight Because what's the use in going out On a Tuesday night This cannot be what life is for He's fighting a war Just to remain alive Happiness should not be a dream Or only a scheme Who's foundation is based on lies Next day got to do it again there is no end Until the day he dies Find something that you will enjoy And do it now boy Because this is our only life

Blind Genius

ANDRE NICKATINA "Khan! The Me Generation"
Man, a new Rolls Royce hit the Popeyes drive-thru I had to tell my driver I'll guide you See my life thru a BlackBerry Some people like that But I think its kinda scary I'm somethin like a sailboat baby jus tryna sail away And you can tell I'm never comin back after today I bundle up for the night air Even though its cold and dark yo I still wear white Nike Airs I cop like 4 pairs It reminds me of Michigan and Antwan Jobear I hit the night like I'm el presidentay Don't wanna be up in the kizer perementay yo And I rush outta town like Picasso I rap pain A perfect picture yo Then I come right back Then I embrace my criminal mind, a criminal kind Heres your chance if you see a criminal shine Cuz my style is real 'Pac yo with the Pun set A lotta Tuxedos before I gotta jet I like breakfast in the nighttime MGA made a clock man its fight time [CHORUS:] Man this the life of a blind genius And even though I can see let me tell you what I mean is I'm so blind by material things Yeah sometimes I don't see whats in front of me mane Yeah ya heard right I hit the night life And shake the whole scene up like a pair of dice I tell the bartender thats too much ice And she over charging on the Hennessy price I don't freestyle I don't free lance I said paced out I say pay fast I know homies that passed in the weight class But it was pushin weight that they all passed at And when I gamble don't catch me on a bad day Like when the warriors had just lost the other day You send me to a preacher I confess You said its all good I said lets bet I think of Khan at the crack of dawn And then I hit my closet for a new Sean John I'm in the middle of a premier pack I put vocals in the burgundy 'lac Yo my perm is like jet black Man its the life of a blind soul Its like a hustla tryna sell you fake gold Or like a married man who ain't never faithful But talk down on a pimp when he break hoes [CHORUS] I hit my court date smellin like straight weed Plus I had a fat knot in my blue jeans You might have to pray for me when I hit Vegas because my mind is wrapped up in the latest and the greatest My aphrodisiac is the payest Never to play us or delay us And everyone that know me homie know I gotta shopping fetish If you think I'm buyin you somethin you best forget it Backwards like Benjamin button Or SuperBad somethin like McLovin Hotter than the oven Baby that boils the crack And When it comes to rap I'm like a spoiled brat And you can catch me some days, hair oiled back And countin on somethin thats a royal stack At the tuxedo party in royal black They had barbeque I said foil that [CHORUS]

Mistakes

KING LIL G "90's Kid"
[Intro:] But those mistakes behind me Cast shadows to remind me I truly hope god never gives up on us [Verse 1:] Its kinda hard for me to listen to that drake shit I'm far from being heartbroken, fucking yo main bitch Roll up a blunt with me, smoke a blunt with me Your enemies my enemies, come shoot a gun with me I seen some beautiful women in salt lake city I traveled thru the east, its gangsta & grimy in philly People tell me I change, well maybe you never knew me I have to switch up the page, to a different chapter in my life I wanna progress Maybe see you in heaven and show you what I possess Ambitions like no one else We did it with no ones help Fuck all you people who criticize, saying that I would fail 65 thousand dollar bail I put money in my homie's books the first day in jail It changed my life, when I read your fan mail I made mistakes in my life and I regret em fo'real (but those mistakes behind me) (cast shadows to remind me) [Interlude:] People can't expect you to be perfect all of a sudden you know? We all mistakes no matter what baby I'm just trying to be better [Verse 2:] Baby tell me, do you know what love is? Sometimes I feel I do the most for the people I fuck with Your girl is beautiful as fuck but she can't be trusted They told you rumors bout her fucking, when you got busted Don't even trip though, ain't nobody perfect You lost your family in a jail cell Now was it worth it? is it worth it? You feeling worthless, searching for god Tell me whats the purpose You facing life, now you feeling nervous But it ain't nothin', life keeps going on You stay behind bars, I'm in the streets smoking bomb I guess its karma, for all the people you went & robbed You were just a young boy tagging on the walls You could've backed off, but something got your ass involved Who am I to tell you, what the fuck is right from wrong All we knew was lil homie put your weapon in place No time for my conscious mind, please forgive my mistakes (but those mistakes behind me) (cast shadows to remind me) [Outro:] I try to do my best just like you We can't judge each other for the bullshit we go through Cause as much as you fucking up I be fucking up too But believe me we can overcome this, hell yeah All my homies who feel lost in this world Keep your head up..keep your head up

Don't Look Down

HOODIE ALLEN "Making Waves"
Yeah You're crashing in right now It's Making Waves By your new favorite crew Hoodie Allen We gonna start it off right now With out further ado We're coming live to you People start to listen and they wonder if the beat break I'll be rolling rich even if I rock the cheap skates Life's a yearbook, never get a retake And all the good times going faster than a speed date You wonder why we late? Good question Never thought we'd make it here now who'd guess it? New lesson: Treat these moments like a blessin I'm trynna find direction and you trynna GPS it And no BSing on this roller coaster we thrilled We just cut the line trynna get the seat filled And now you're strapped in acting like we chilled I know you love it when we go and let the beat build We feel better then we ever been I need to clear my head excedrin I'm taking off to somewhere big and I be hoping that you getting in But if you don't I know I'll see you when I get home They say the road is just your favourite place to get grown So for the people that I dissed and I led on You can be the people that I miss when I head on I feel so high tonight I don't wanna see the ground Don't look down, don't look down Life can be so simple When living in the clouds Don't look down Don't look down Ain't no better time than the present Maybe if we never count the future And I promise if I said it then I meant it And I never meant to be the one to shoot your Dreams down, see clouds and the sounds just opened up And if they looking for a change then I hope it's us I know it's tough, so is anything that's worth it I'm making it my business to deserve it I feel so high tonight I don't wanna see the ground Don't look down Don't look down Life can be so simple When living in the clouds Don't look down Don't look down
