JAMES TAYLOR lyrics - Before This World


Original and similar lyrics
I'm not smart enough for this life I've been livin', A little bit slow for the pace of the dream. It's not I'm ungrateful for all I've been given; But nevertheless, just the same... I wish to my soul, I was back in Montana, High on my mountain and deep in the snow. Up in my cabin, over the valley, Under the blankets with you. Over the ocean from here. Over the mountains from there. Who can imagine the scale of the forces That pushed this old mountain range up in the sky? Tectonic creation, erosion, mutation; Somethin' to pleasure God's eye. The world is a wonder of lightnin' and thunder, And green of the ground as we fall from the sky. The old and new faces, the tribes and the races... Thousands of places to try. Over the ocean from here. Over the mountains from there. One sits and waits while the other one wanders, And squanders his time with a life on the road. Down from the mountain, across the wide ocean, The world is in motion and cannot be slowed. Enough for today... the demands of the moment, The thing on my mind is the work in my hand. Wood for the woodstove and water for coffee, Somethin' I can still understand. We got a few friends but not many neighbors, The trip into town takes us most of the day. And after, "Hello", and "it's sure good to see you", It seems like there's nothin' to say. Over the ocean from here.

Cocoa Brovaz "The Rude Awakening"
Let me ask this question real quick, umm, as far as the Smif-N-Wessun and the name change and everything like that; now how did that come about? How did that evolve into the Cocoa Brovaz and everything like that? That was jealousy, man. That's all that is, man. (Jealousy, man) Jealousy and ignorance, man.

Durango Mountain Caballero

JOHN DENVER "Rocky Mountain Holiday"
You know I love the trail I'm on And the friends who ride with me The country that we're passing through Is a paradise to see, a haven for my spirit The homeland of my dreams My heart flies through the wilderness And on an eagle's wings And oh I love the waterfall And the way the river sings From snow-capped peaks both proud and tall Through forests deep and green The highway of the mountains The lifeblood of the land I can hear my mother speak to me And hold my father's hand Durango Mountain caballero Take me for a ride On the backbone of this mighty land The Continental Divide To the place where earth and heaven Meet the mountains and the sky In the heart of Colorado, Rocky Mountain High And oh I love the campfire And the circle that I'm in The stories and the laughter They should never, ever end Forever in my memory Forever in my song On a San Juan mountain trail ride I'll carry you along

Cheyenne Anthem

KANSAS "Leftoverture"
(Kerry Livgren) From the mountains to the sun, life has only just begun We wed this land and pledge our souls to meet its end, Life has only just begun Here my people roam the earth, in the kingdom of our birth Where the dust of all our horses hides the sun We are mighty on the earth, on the earth You have come to move me, take me from my ancient home, Land of my fathers I can't leave you now We will share it with you, no man owns this earth we're on Now the wheels are rolling, hear the howling winds of war It's my destiny to fight and die Is there no solution, can we find no other way, Lord let me stay Under the endless sky and the earth below Here I was born to live and I will never go, oh no But we cannot endure like the earth and the mountains Life is not ours to keep, for a new sun is rising Soon these days shall pass away, for our freedom we must pay All our words and deeds are carried on the wind, In the ground our bodies lay, here we lay

AESOP ROCK "Appleseed"
[Aesop Rock:] Yo, I surf an axiom kicked in a center fold of ugly tenements Oh distribute sour inhalants regulate lobby developments Today summon the rug rat oblivious to what's delicate Tomorrow siphon imperfection out the fetus prior to selling it There is a brain in the thicket tap circle cupping the port to accord it Teeter thorn storm plunges more but conformers the pouring's half the entry Plated pearly gates a chanted axis with high gentry hinging our binging on Public picket fencing Squirming in terms in conditions of un-satisfact destiny magnet Where the ebony should of cracked shit ratio tragic Lose sight suit oh mavericks clash at futility pageants I post froze in a blaze at a grand combustion A leader's deception connection wiper with a barn responds his friend With an eye socket full of needles and a will to die for nothing And that's glory abide thy crass itinerary barely suitable for common slum cats And the lemmings will follow you to the blood bath All aboard that awful train through shames patch where I'd trade my window Seat for one pane of replacement stain glass, see I bow to the the gods of opacity I don't mind y'all looking in, it's just watching Sin City steam slips under my skin And I'm about half way to nausea, half way to contentment 2 halves post made a dance evoked a whole lot of resentment Build a pen around master dome patriarch close to four peters Woke to rope cubicles combines with combines suitably ingenious Let's soak my feet in lake infinity the time vibe strapped to dignity my Symmetries vivid image still can't mimic the victory comfort is a drug and I'm numb as fuck Yet some prefer the hum and others tend to suck the life out of the crux like One, two, three, four, and I'm a tug dummy hug the hungry pull the lever push the button Drink the garbage split the homage reap the harvest target everyone Beckon eyes idols that have a malleable colony till the fire ant dropped the Sweet leaf grief your dreams a needle in a needle stack claiming safety pin physics Baby tin blizzards collide while ole iron sides trust the rivets I'm sick of the picker the litter soaking the spot lit when I know they Know they owe all thanks to the end all Aesop Rock shit watch this Build me a home; build me a home of brick and wood and everything good With a front porch where I can jar fire flies by night And smoke stogs till the day meets twilight Build me a home, build me a home with a green grass hill with running a water In a backyard with a sandbox and a garden of foreign flowers Build me a home with a basement and an attic Where I can store remnants of the day I once slept in build me a home No skull is sacred in the races Locked in a pagan doctrine watching born again faces gamble up patience fail blatant Ochre and sienna war paintings stain plague community harking as wrapped It's overlooking out crops Give you one life to laugh at catalog bliss on The least common attachment ten seconds of glittering silence Pilot is flight redefine stagnant Most emotions host an entire lesson Congressional less one stone merely for the exceptional spectacle now Listen the pause heed tall falls the voidance of the suit dispersed Await a straightened arrows a perfect circle has been fastened to the Blimp side buy in my grin and clusters that's better than colony my own Fathers son is the holy ghost suck that theology I king for a day of Peasant for a pleasant life blood on the easel and my eagle eyelids Spots runaway pirates look I despise squatters with a, ohh, cry me a River a quarter how'd you afford that dog and sour dialogue I put my hook in the pond I put my worm In the hook I put my trust in the worm That he'd bring me something to cook I felt a tug on my line and I lugged a trash can On my pole with a note from the worm attached that Read, "Thanks for nothing asshole! " Simple parables of nature making Character giddy and riddle me a similar situation mix city quick put Your honor on the line doors to the monks blood thirsty barracuda Serpents and report on powers of devil treatment church links I'm a Fence sitter lips torn by both polars and their working I can only model throttle at the dream catching matching a patchy holist with a Sovereignty harbored and charged my hate breed in a minute he's picket Spitting stitches to fix the britches in the gaps one night I broke in Bridges give us traps and tried to walk to get stogs just like hop Scotch between polar caps and I'm, blue in the face when every second is a waste of breath Making that classic mockery of every step Oh build me a home, build me a home please with a light in the window and A red front door and a picket fence and a fire place and a sturdy frame And we can sit I'll tell you my name build me home...
