JACKSON BROWNE lyrics - Running On Empty

The Road

Original and similar lyrics
(Danny O'Keefe) Highways and dancehalls A good song takes you far Your write about the moon And you dream about the stars Blues in old motel rooms Girls in daddy's car You sing about the nights And you laugh about the scars Coffee in the morning cocaine afternoons You talk about the weather And you grin about the rooms Phone calls long distance To tell how you've been Forget about the losses, you exaggerate the wins And when you stop to let 'em know You've got it down It's just another town along the road The ladies come to see you If your name still rings a bell They give you damn near nothin' And they'll say they knew you well So you tell 'em you'll remember But they know it's just a game And along the way their faces All begin to look the same And when you stop to let 'em know You got it down It's just another town along the road Well it isn't for the money And it's only for a while You stalk about the rooms And you roll away the miles Gamblers in the neon, clinging to guitars You're right about the moon But you're wrong about the stars And when you stop to let 'em know You got it down It's just another town along the way

Sing / A Sky Full Of Stars

MADDI JANE
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh It's late in the evening Glass on the side I've sat with you For most of the night Ignoring everybody here Wish that they would disappear So we could get down now Well I don't wanna know If you're getting ahead of the program I want you to be mine, baby Won't you pull me close And take a step into no-man's land Into a sky full of stars I wanna give you my heart Go on and tear me apart Well I don't care if you do As long as I'm with you Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh This love is a blaze I saw flames from the side of the stage And the fire brigade comes in a couple of days Let it go until our roads are changed Singing we found love at a local rave No, I don't really know what I'm supposed to say But I can figure it out and I can hope and pray Told him my name and said, "It's nice to meet ya" Babe, where you're from, I don't think I've seen ya I already know he's a keeper The smile's making me a believer From this one small act of kindness I'm in D-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-deep, yeah Cause in a sky full of stars You know you're lighter the more it gets dark Cause in a sky, cause in a sky full of stars I think I saw you, ohhhh you oh I think I see you I think I see you

(We Are) The Road Crew

MOTORHEAD "Ace Of Spades"
Another town another place, Another girl, another face, Another truce, another race, I'm eating junk, feeling bad, Another night, I'm going mad, My woman's leaving, I feel sad, But I just love the life I lead, Another beer is what I need, Another gig my ears bleed, We Are The Road Crew Another town I've left behind, Another drink completely blind, Another hotel I can't find, Another backstage pass for you, Another tube of super glue, Another border to get through, I'm driving like a maniac, Driving my way to hell and back, Another room a case to pack, We Are The Road Crew Another hotel we can burn, Another screw, another turn, Another Europe map to learn, Another truckstop on the way, Another game I learn to play, Another word I learn to say, Another bloody customs post, Another fucking foreign coast, Another set of scars to boast, We Are The Road Crew

Rocks On The Road

JETHRO TULL "Catfish Rising"
There's a black cat down on the quayside. Ship's lights, green eyes glowing in the dark. Two young cops handing out a beating: know how to hurt and leave no mark. Down in the half-lit bar of the hotel there's a call for the last round of the day. Push back the stool, take that elevator ride. Fall in bed and kick my shoes away. Rocks on the road. Can't sleep through the wild sound of the city. Hear a car full of young boys heading for a fight. Long distance telephone keeps ringing out engaged: wonder who you're talking with tonight. Who you talking with tonight Rocks on the road. Tired plumbing wakes me in the morning. Shower runs hot, runs cold playing with me. Well, I'm up for the down side, life's a bitch and all that stuff: so come and shake some apples from my tree. Have to pay for my minibar madness. Itemised phone bill overload. Well now, how about some heavy rolling Move these rocks on the road. Crumbs on the breakfast table. And a million other little things to spoil my day. Now how about a little light music to chase it all away To chase it all away.

I Don't Even Try

JOHN HIATT "Riding With The King"
I thought I had your number - there must be some mistake I dialled 6 - 3 - 7 - 11 - 88 I got some geezer; said his girlfriend's on the town I said, "I've got the wrong number," and I slammed the phone down Thought about it for a minute 'til the anger went away I figure every dog in town is gonna have his day Well, I could count the teardrops, or I could wonder why Well I used to be your lover - now I don't even try It was champagne parties and sweet love sins Now it's warm beer at midnight and girlie magazines I stack the empty cans up like a freshman in school It's the kind of thing you're into when you ain't nobody's fool Got my socks in the oven, something's growing in the sink I can't begin to face the day without a couple of drinks Ain't had a decent meal since you made me cry Well I used to be your lover - now I don't even try Memories, take a look at what you've done to me It's gettin' so all I do is watch TV Can't even prove that I'm alive Well, I thought I had your number - there must be some mistake I dialled 6-3-7-1-1-8-8 I got some geezer; said his girlfriend's on the town I said, "I've got the wrong number," and I slammed the phone down But I know the number's right and you're his girl Though I wouldn't want to face it for the whole wide world Don't come back baby, I think I'm gonna die Well I used to be your lover, now I don't even try I used to be your lover, now I don't even try

3 To 10 / CB's Caddy Party Part III

LUCKY BOYS CONFUSION "Throwing The Game"
It's 3 to 10 the pigs are here Give me 10 seconds to slam my beers No wounded soldiers kill them all The pigs found me in a bathroom stall They called me an addict, fucking alcoholic Now I got bread and water, slamming In a room with padded walls I was very much alive when I stepped off of the southwest Thinking about the brew that is cool, cause we keep it in fridge, yes It's about six the fix, the fix running I drop the beat kid you keep it bumping Suzie's friends dropping hints, what am I supposed to do All the rooms are taken and the bitch's got a curfew Barely 18 and bro she's a freak I think she needs a piece of this 420 Geek All the rooms are taken, well there's always the backseat Keep that caddy rocking, well there's always the backseat Let's take this from the top cause on top's where I like to be Let me introduce you to my headboard girly On the queen size we're doing our thing Crack! There goes the boxspring Mama's knocking on the door 'Who do you got in there' 'It's that god damn lucky boy!' Mama just wants to share I'd have given it to her mom, but daddy-o he had a shotgun Oh shit, your mama's knocking, well there's always the backseat Officer R. Cappelan treating me like a felon Don't make me get crazy on you like Curtis Mellin
