Iron And Wine lyrics

The Trapeze Swinger

Original and similar lyrics
Please, remember me Happily By the rosebush laughing With bruises on my chin The time when We counted every black car passing Your house beneath the hill And up until Someone caught us in the kitchen With maps, a mountain range, A piggy bank A vision too removed to mention But Please, remember me Fondly I heard from someone you're still pretty And then They went on to say That the pearly gates Had some eloquent graffiti Like 'We'll meet again' And 'Fuck the man' And 'Tell my mother not to worry' And angels with their gray Handshakes Were always done in such a hurry And Please, remember me At Halloween Making fools of all the neighbors Our faces painted white By midnight We'd forgotten one another And when the morning came I was ashamed Only now it seems so silly That season left the world And then returned And now you're lit up by the city So Please, remember me Mistakenly In the window of the tallest tower call Then pass us by But much too high To see the empty road at happy hour Leave and resonate Just like the gates Around the holy kingdom With words like 'Lost and Found' and 'Don't Look Down' And 'Someone Save Temptation' And Please, remember me As in the dream We had as rug-burned babies Among the fallen trees And fast asleep Aside the lions and the ladies That called you what you like And even might Give a gift for your behavior A fleeting chance to see A trapeze Swing as high as any savior But Please, remember me My misery And how it lost me all I wanted Those dogs that love the rain And chasing trains The colored birds above there running In circles round the well And where it spells On the wall behind St. Peter's So bright with cinder gray And spray paint 'Who the hell can see forever?' And Please, remember me Seldomly In the car behind the carnival My hand between your knees You turn from me And said 'The trapeze act was wonderful But never meant to last' The clown that passed Saw me just come up with anger When it filled with circus dogs The parking lot Had an element of danger So Please, remember me Finally And all my uphill clawing My dear But if i make The pearly gates Do my best to make a drawing Of G-d and Lucifer A boy and girl An angel kissin on a sinner A monkey and a man A marching band All around the frightened trapeze swingers Na-na Na-na-na Na-na Na-na...

Human (Outro)

JOELL ORTIZ "Human"
Fuck it Had to talk my shit to y'all, don't hate it or love it Just respect it and be honored That I'm standin' in your presence, it's the Yaowa We ain't promised tomorrow I grew up in a single household, my mama was father My uncle was junkie My cousin was a dickhead tryin' to punk me My other cousin got bodied cause of a stupid color My projects is a live set, we shoot at each other Some niggas is 'bout it, some niggas is scared But even the 'bout it niggas fear, the worry is shared Vision blurry, impaired Pickin' up pace in the hood and I hurry to where Same corner store, same faces in front of it Same dice game, same 40 and same blunt is lit Same couple of schemes to get a hundred quick Some niggas is grimy, scheme on who they runnin' with But see I was smart, I bought another clip Never wait to get shot at to shoot, that's some dummy shit It was just me, no brothers or sis No one to tell I'm plummeted to a fuckin' abyss Them drug dealers at my door again My mom's meetin' 'em in the hall again I swear when I grow up I'm killin' all of them Man that shouldn't be your thoughts after 10 But that's the life that I was brought up in I never had a choice Walkin' through the livin' room, hearin' my granny voice Like "Don't you be just like the rest of them Your boy [?], yeah they arrested him" But little Joell, he ain't let it get the best of him Fuck it Had to talk my shit to y'all, don't hate it or love it I'm just human I'm only human I'm talkin' pre-music Pre-money, pre-fame, pre-groupies, just highwaters Comin' out the snow, peelin' your socks off yah Freezin' just to find out there's no hot water Man I had packed roaches That couch is 20 years old but it's the best sofa Moms ain't cook yesterday so ain't no leftovers Still every fuckin' Halloween I would egg yolk yah We lit the staircase up with cap gun revolvers Playin' cops and robbers Funny, I'm lookin' back now, we all wanted to be robbers We didn't respect the coppers We used to go up to the roof and throw rocks at the choppers Fast forward, I'm at the table, the rock gettin' chopped up That Reebok sneaker box is startin' to get guapped up Your jewelry and clothes, that's startin' to pop up I'm a teenager now, much more than a monster I stole a Hyundai Elantra and crashed it into a Honda I'm in the backway with a bird and I'm standin' behind her I remember that first feeling, remember that first feeling No condom, I was illin' Dead ass Young, dumb with a gun and just feining to turn you to a dead ass I remember that night I borrowed my nigga Fred's mask And they found son in the street, nobody know what happened but Yeah I still jump out of my sleep Let me leave that right there before I incriminate myself Behind this beat My life ain't sweet It's sort of like finders keepers And you'll be surprised by some of the shit these finders keep Keep, I can no longer do I can't keep this all to myself, I must give some to you Before music, the only check I got was summer youth Yeah I'm a rapper but I'm still... I'm still one of you Human

I Drove Her Out Of My Mind

JOHNNY CASH "Out Among The Stars"
She gave me my walking papers and ran off with someone new Cuz he bought her things my wages couldn't buy So I turned to ups and downers and everything between Still I can't get her good lovin' off my mind Well today I bought a Cadillac the kind she's always wanted I called and asked her if she'd like to ride She said this is our last date I said that's alright with me cause tonight I'm driving her out of my mind Yeah I'll take her on a scenic cruise right off of Lookout Mountain Cause she said I never took her out when she was mine She'll see all seven states as we drive to the pearly gates tonight when I drive her out of my mind All the papers will read "Lovers leap again off Lookout Mountain" Cause i wrote a note that called it suicide But my epitaph will say "he killed his pain yesterday when he finally drove that woman off his mind" Well now here she comes to greet me dressed to kill and so am I Hope she asks me if this cadillac will fly And I know that I'll die laughin' when I show her that it will when I drive that woman right out of my mind Hell I'll take her on a scenic cruise right off of Lookout Mountain Cause she said I never took her out when she was mine She'll see all seven states as we drive to the pearly gates tonight when I drive her out of my mind They'll say Johnny Cash was quite a smash down here in Chatanooga last night when he drove her out of his mind Yeah that Cadillac dealer's in for a big surprise too 99 dollars down, 99 dollars a month Yeah it's gonna be just gorgeous (ooh to the pearly gates) (ooh to the pearly gates) (ooh to the pearly gates ...)

The Soul

JOE BUDDEN "Halfway House"
[Verse 1:] Same characters but the show's different, Just listen, it feels like the soul been missing I remember copping that compact disc just to take off the wrapping It was more then rapping Read credits, till every name's embedded One day, I'm a be just like them, bet it! One day, I'm a come and lace the team with their favorite things When I grace the screen, coasting! I mean, it's nothing like what I was hoping No emotion, we just going through the motions I used to watch the videos just to see the new shit Wanted to see it first, I thought I'd be exclusive Remember getting hyped off my first casio Suped up writing my first verse, it was ass though Acappella, no beat and a bad flow Damn I miss the good ol' days, when we had soul! [Hook:] When we had soul! [Beat rides] [Verse 2:] I remember each day putting my favorite song on replay But my tape deck would always eat tapes I'd put my finger in the middle trying to fix it Just for the shit to end up sounding twisted Pressing clothes before school, I was matching Liked the girl in class, got mad when she was absent Wasn't a baller and I ain't have no game, So what could I do besides ignore her? (OR!) My first fight with no brothers to get I remember being scared as shit and he had all this lip And I ain't have hands not a bit, just knew that I ain't wanna get hit So staring at the clock, I ain't trying to see 3 o'clock hit But I never found the back door, (Him) He ended up with a tapped jaw (As for me) I ended up with that bad broad Damn, I miss the good ol' days, I wish we had more [Hook] [Verse 3:] Maybe I'm feeling like a kid today I mean, I used to want to have a house party watching House Party, Kid & Play I had the low tops kicks and the fade I remember my first piece of ass from a hot chick Surprised she gave it to me, was shocked I got it Ol' girl image of me was all ruined Had to be thinking "the fuck's this boy doing? " So hard I flirted just to be all nervous Wish she could see me now, I'm so perverted! I tell her "I'm so glad I found you. Are you ready for round two? Or can I mount you? " And Ol pic's I used to look like a clown dude, When I had know idea what I'd amount to A nigga used to be outta control Man, I miss the good ol' days, when we used to have soul! [Hook]

It Coulda Been Worse

LYFE JENNINGS "I Still Believe"
[TALKING:] Yea, Yo you always complaining about how bad stuff is. Complaining about the light bill, hey its people that dont got lights, you know? So I wanna tell everybody listening man embrace your struggle cause no matter what man true story it could've been worse [VERSE 1:] I was going through some changes in my life. Cussing and complaining every night. Telling God the way he treating me aint right, and how I dont deserve it. A voice from some where came to me and said you got the audacity to fix your mouth to disrespect, how soon we forget. [HOOK:] And he said remember when you were sick and you got better, remember I put your family back together, remember I could have cut you off forever. So no matter how bad you think it hurts. [CHORUS:] It could've been worse, you could've been dead. You could've been paralyzed, confined to a bed. You could've lost everything, you should've lost everything. But somebodys watching you, and gave you another chance. [VERSE 2:] Its so funny how we think we got it rough, when there are babies who got mothers hooked on drugs, and this depression got some folks loosing their home. They spent their whole lives saving for. It's better in comparison, tell me you'll switch places with them, you only got to God to complain but have you ever went to him to just say thanks? So no matter how bad you think it hurts [HOOK:] And remember he didnt let that disease take you, remember he didnt even get a thank you, he love you just to hate you so no matter how bad you think it hurts [CHORUS x3]
