JIM REEVES lyrics - Essential

I'm Gettin' Better

Original and similar lyrics
In a vine-covered shack in the mountains Bravely fighting the battle of Time There's a dear one who's weathered life's sorrow It's that silver haired Daddy of mine If I could recall all the heartaches Dear old Daddy, I've caused you to bear If I could erase those lines from your face And bring back the gold to your hair If God would but grant me the power Just to turn back the pages of Time I'd give all I own if I could but atone To that silver haired Daddy of mine. I know it's too late, dear old Daddy To repay for the heartaches and care But dear Mother is waiting in Heaven Just to comfort and solace you there If I could recall all the heartaches Dear old Daddy, I've caused you to bear If I could erase those lines from your face And bring back the gold to your hair If God would but grant me the power Just to turn back the pages of Time I'd give all I own if I could but atone To that silver haired Daddy of mine

Queen Of Pain

ALKALINE TRIO "Alkaline Trio/Hot Water Music"
There's a fire forming not too far from here. Out on the east coast maybe it resides in you my dear. We're worn out on all courtesy we've made our curtain calls. Like vampire bats deprived of blood into the New York City night we crawl. And you've got a funny way of showing off your bathroom surgery. You said you were just cooling down from plans of leaving me. There something i should tell you for we may not have much time... I've never met arms like yours. And the stars at night are big and bright deep in your eyes miss vincent. You told me once i made you smile we both know damn well i didn't. I'm not much of a jester but i'd test poison food for you your majesty. You're royal blue. I'm loyalty, my king of pain there's a hard rain falling, flooding your attic it's clear. It can't put out the fire which resides in you my dear. There's something i should tell you for we may not have much time. I've never seen scars like yours.

Daddy's Baby Girl

JIMMY NEEDHAM "Clear The Stage"
They said you have me wrapped around your finger Like the ribbons that you wear in your hair Maybe 'cause when I see your little fingers holdin' onto mine I don't have a care You've got me buyin' you bows and dresses Oh, what a beautiful mess that this is I think I'm in love She's two foot three Eyes blue and green I just can't get enough She got my heels over my head Or better yet, she got me movin' to the beat of her drum And if love were time, I would spend all mine Just livin' inside her world 'cause she's daddy's baby girl They warned that you'd demand all my attention Not to mention you're my very first child It's true I'm spending nearly half an hour Making faces just to get you to smile You've got me doing these silly little dance moves I hope this don't make it onto youtube Soon she'll crawl, then walk, then talk, she's here for a while Then sweet sixteen, and like a dream, she's down the aisle I believe I'm in love She's two foot three Eyes blue and green I just can't get enough She got my heels over my head Or better yet, she got me movin' to the beat of her drum And if love were time, I would spend all mine Livin' inside her world Cause she's daddy's baby girl She may leave, but she'll always be my world 'cause she's daddy's baby girl

Carey

JONI MITCHELL "Blue"
The wind is in from Africa Last night I couldn't sleep Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here Carey But it's really not my home My fingernails are filthy, I got beach tar on my feet And I miss my clean white linen and my fancy French cologne Oh Carey get out your cane And I'll put on some silver Oh you're a mean old Daddy, but I like you fine Come on down to the Mermaid Cafe and I will buy you a bottle of wine And we'll laugh and toast to nothing and smash our empty glasses down Let's have a round for these freaks and these soldiers A round for these friends of mine Let's have another round for the bright red devil Who keeps me in this tourist town Come on, Carey, get out your cane I'll put on some silver Oh you're a mean old Daddy, but I like you Maybe I'll go to Amsterdam Or maybe I'll go to Rome And rent me a grand piano and put some flowers 'round my room But let's not talk about fare-thee-welIs now The night is a starry dome. And they're playin' that scratchy rock and roll Beneath the Matalla Moon Come on, Carey, get out your cane And I'll put on some silver You're a mean old Daddy, but I like you The wind is in from Africa Last night I couldn't sleep Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here But, it's really not my home Maybe it's been too long a time Since I was scramblin' down in the street Now they got me used to that clean white linen And that fancy French cologne Oh Carey, get out your cane I'll put on my finest silver We'll go to the Mermaid Cafe Have fun tonight I said, Oh, you're a mean old Daddy, but you're out of sight

Little Man

ATMOSPHERE "You Can't Imagine How Much Fun We're Having"
[Verse 1] Dear Jacob I won't take up too much of you time I know you're trying to get your video game-grind on And that's fine Just gimme a second to empty my face Before I hit the road again to go and win this paper chase I've been watching you man I'm proud of you man You're growing up to be the best man that you possibly can I know you understand Why I go out of town I also know my days are colder when you're not around Sometimes I wonder what it's like to be adapted to the fact That daddy never lived inside the same shack And sometimes I get this pain in my stomach's pit It's what I get I'm convinced it's my punishment For those nights I got drunk and let go at some bar In some city with some people I don't know For all the times that the lines on your face Reminded me of the days before the dagonflies escaped It trips me out how you pick up all my traits From the way that you spit to the fists that you make I watch the way you try to keep your mom happy Daddy learned that from you You're supposed to learn that from daddy I can't teach much when it comes to women I drive safe and slow but don't know nothing 'bout the engine You're doing good little man thats all I really meant I love you You're my best friend, thanks for listening [Verse 2] Dear Craig What up bones? How it goes? Yeah, me? Well, you know, you know, same old, same old Sorry that the phone calls ain't too routine Just been runnin' around the globe tryin' to do my thing Sometimes the weeks fly a little too fast And sometimes I go to sleep a little too trashed Other times I'm not sittin' on enough cash And other times today feels too much like the past Sometimes at night I would watch y'all fight A child wonderin' Why your life just ain't alright? What's the violence about? Why's it in my house? And even the memories are turned up too loud Yeah, I got some issues in my head Knew we should've started fixing 'em back when she left you I'm not trying to get you down, I know you're different now But your little man justs wants you to listen now I'm over thirty, can't maintain relations All these women wanna hurt me and I just don't have the patience I can't trust 'em And they're not much help When they start to push and pull the buttons I don't trust myself What pride, fists, and words just might do? I'm afraid of my fate, don't wanna turn out like you I've never hit a woman I won't do coke And for that alone I love you and I wanna thank you old man [Verse 3] Dear Sean What's goin' on? Not much to say Just checkin' in wit'cha trying to see what's wrong today I know there's gotta be something kickin' your bruises How's the love? How's the music? How's the self-abusiveness? Got a lot to lose, it's breakin' your shoulders So you let your paranoia place your bets for you Too many cigarettes, messin' up your voice Too many arguments, tryin' to test your poise The only women that love you are fans and family Mom has no choice, but fans leave you randomly No heavy rotation In any location You're not ready to face that you have no steady vocation Plus you're gettin' old, your raps are exhausted Stop it, everybody knows that you've lost it Singin' for these kids you don't know When you should be at home with your own instead you're on your telephone Fightin' with your girl like it's you against the world Another drunk hotel bedroom corner, curled up like a naked fetus Come and save him Jesus Place him back in time before the Reaganomics and Adidas Sometimes you're not impressed with the work you've done And love isn't love if you didn't hurt someone Your son says, "Hi dad." Your dad says, "Whats up?" And me, I wanna thank you, but I won't, I'll just say, "Good luck."

World Keeps Spinnin'

JOE BUDDEN "Escape Route"
[Talking] Yeah... Escape Route Let's go [Hook] And the world keeps spinning! (Nigga) I feel like the world keeps spinning (Spinning) And the world keeps spinning It's like the world keeps winning And to spite me the world keep grinning [Verse 1] I ain't trying to bother none So how I end up bothered son? Yeah you damn right I'm my father's son Minus prison, minus over 20 years in the system But don't take away the wisdom Holy water won't cleanse him Hardheaded, won't convince him A nigga wear pride like it's denim Fuck ?? get along with me I'm alright with everything that's wrong with me And that's how it's going to be That opinion is mine, motherfucker, it belong to me So get mad at it, half beast, half addict Can halfass it and be better than rap bastards Black 'matic, give me rheumatism asthmatic I spit high class acid, I'm positive, now that's magic I'm trying to change shit like a Panther Asking the right questions but getting the wrong answers [Hook] [Verse 2] I could talk about how a nigga trade slugs Boast about, toasting, what the .38 does But a nigga seen what happened to the family of J-Hud So I thank God for every morning I wake up Wait up! Confront is if everything's fine? But my grandmother's dying, and shes 89 Older but her mind about as sharp as mine If this world were mine I would rewind time To a time when her heart didn't leak that fluid She needs surgery, doctors talking stupid Said "she already lived her life so she can afford to lose it" Talking like their tools is useless Ain't that some shit, she gotta approve it Grandma ready to go, she'd rather them not do it No matter how much it might hurt me Another lesson learned, some fights ain't fight worthy Jersey [Hook] [Verse 3] I'm waiting on a true revival I'ma call you a coward if you alive and suicidal (WHY?) Either be grateful for everything God said you supposed to get Or pull the trigger and get over it Hip Hop's supposed to give, all this weight on my back But you ain't gotta spot me, I can shoulder it Life's a rollercoaster, that ride gonna be easy Why don't you believe me? My parents was high when they conceived me Say I got a couple control issues I disagree, I just like to control issues My train of thought, my state of mind Is I could change the world one state at a time With the madness of every hater alive Got an agenda, I just feel like ya'll should cater to mine Ideas brilliant, perservere, I'm resilient Until the world change, I be right here chilling Nigga [Hook]
