RAY STEVENS lyrics - A Brighter Day - Volume 2

Mr. Businessman

Original and similar lyrics
Itemize the things you covet As you squander through your life Bigger cars, bigger houses Term insurance for your wife Tuesday evenings with your harlot And on Wednesdays it s your charlatan analyst, he s high upon your list You ve got air conditioned sinuses And dark disturbing doubts about religion And you keep those cards and letters going out While your secretary s tempting you Your morals are exempting you from guilt and shame Heaven knows you re not to blame (CHORUS:) You better, Take care of business Mr. Businessman What s your plan? Get down to business Mr. Businessman if you can (Before it's too late and you throw your life away) 1st time Did you see your children growing up today And did you hear the music of their laughter As they set about to play Did you catch the fragrance of those roses in your garden Did the morning sunlight warm your soul, Brighten up your day Do you qualify to be alive or is the limit of your senses so as only to survive Hey yeah..... Spending counterfeit incentive Wasting precious time and health Placing value on the worthless Disregarding priceless wealth You can wheel and deal the best of them And steal it from the rest of them You know the score, their ethics are a bore Eighty-six proof anesthetic crutches prop you to the top Where the smiles are all synthetic And the ulcers never stop When they take that final inventory, Yours will be the same sad story everywhere No one will really care, no one more lonely than This rich important man, let s have your autograph Endorse your epitaph (CHORUS)


Verse: No one sits with him, he doesn't fit in But we feel like we do when we make fun of him Cause you want to belong do you go along? Cause his pain is the price paid for you to belong It's not like we hate him or want him to die But maybe he goes home and thinks suicide Or he comes back to school with a gun at his side And a kindness from you might have saved his life Tag: Heroes are made when you make a choice Chorus: You could be a hero Heroes do what's right You could be a hero You might save a life You could be a hero, You could join the fight For what's right for what's right for what's right Verse: No one talks to her, she feels so alone She's in too much pain to survive on her own The hurt she can't handle overflows to a knife She writes on her arm, wants to give up her life Each day she goes on is a day that she is brave, Fighting the lie that giving up is the way, Each moment of courage her own life she saves When she throws the pills out a hero is made Tag Chorus Verse: No one talks to him about how he lives He thinks that the choices he makes are just his Doesn't know he's a leader with the way he behaves And others will follow the choices he's made He lives on the edge, he's old enough to decide His brother who wants to be him is just nine He can do what he wants because it's his right The choices he makes change a nine year old's life Chorus x2


STACIE ORRICO "Stacie Orrico"
I saw him shaking his change in a coffee cup Asked for a dollar but I told the man to give it up Said he's hungry i dont think that it's true I bet my dollar he'd just spend it on booze I turned my back on him and began to walk away But then i heard a little voice inside me say What if it's really true? What if he's hungry? What if it's not for him? Does he have a family? How'd you get here How'd you end up on the street Where did you go wrong Wonder what I'd do if it were me Chorus: A new point of view A walk in your shoes I wish I could get inside your head To see what you see When you look at me Cause I could have lived your life instead Verse2: It was 90 degrees in the Summer heat She was veiled in black all the way down to her feet This is America doesn't she know Somebody take her shopping buy her some clothes She came up to me I didn't understand a word I was about to leave then another thought occurred She must be really lost scared and frustrated I should try again to see what she's saying How'd you get here How'd you get so far from home What was it that made you leave Wonder what I'd do if it were me Chorus: A new point of view A walk in your shoes I wish I could get inside your head To see what you see when you look at me Cause I could have lived your life instead I wanna see oh see what you see And I wanna feel oh feel just what you feel Chorus(2x) Cuz I could have lived your life instead(2x)

Even If

Stranded in the middle of a hurricane I've got an umbrella but nowhere to stay Do I give up now or do I face the cold I better get some boldness Looking to the left I see it coming I'm alone and I'm scared and it's heading my way Do I run Do I hide Do I dare close my eyes Do I face the fear inside Time after time Lord I'll keep running back to You Keep running back to You I, I realize this time that I'll be fine (Chorus) Even if the stars fell like rain Even if tomorrow never came Even if the world I know should crumble Nothing's gonna stand in my way Even if the sun left the sky And even if these tears never dry Even if the mountains fall and tumble If what's left of me is taken I will not be shaken Landed in the middle of the desert And I'm wondering why what keeps me alive When the water I drink and the air that I breathe is dry Time after time Lord I'll keep running back to You Keep running back to You I, I realize this time that I'll be fine (Chorus) Even in the darkest night I know I'll be alright The world is bound to change But You always stay the same You give me joy You give me hope You give me love that doesn't change (Chorus x 2)

Time's Up

JADAKISS "Kiss Of Death"
[Jadakiss] Yeah, yo, I'm the nigga with the perpetual oyster bars Mother of pearl delivery, voice of God's hard just being the boss Being I can't go to jail cause them years'll cost me Don't get me wrong, lay a nigga down if he force me Rather just sit back and roll a dutch Think how I'ma put the game in the cobra clutch Think about how I'ma get the 'caine over Customs Never underestimate niggaz, or over trust them Uh...yeah them M's is right in my face I just gotta throw my Timbs on and tighten my lace If it don't jam, the Tech will spray When I spit everybody gotta split like pepper spray Cause I'm a nigga that hate to settle I'm a man of the Lord but I still can't escape the devil Moved away and still can't escape the ghetto, what [Chorus: Nate Dogg] The time to talk is up So bring the heat, play time is over While you running your mouth I'm creeping up over your shoulder A gun, a knife, a bat, a brick, anything I can get my hands on Call my bluff, start acting up, and I'll leave you underground [Jadakiss] I know how to get my pairs off me They can cry and die from high blood pressure cause tears are salty It's a symptom if you bobbin your head Know that he's sick, know the flow is ridic', now throw him a grip When I get it, you already know I'm throwin them bricks Puttin purple everywhere, daddy, I'm throwin them nicks That's right, homey, you can't move me I ain't goin nowhere, I'm in the hood like bootleg movies All you shootin is the breeze, a bootleg uzi I'm just waitin on a que like Suzie, don't lose me These penitentiary chances that I take Should be able to get the mansion by the lake But I invest my bread into something else Into something else that'll make something melt You just gotta feel the kid if not rap for the fact of how real he is, whatever [Chorus] [Jadakiss] Aiyo, niggaz know the champ is in here He took it from crack to rap, now he put out two anthems a year And I just wanna rock for a century Then chase the book with the documentary If you, can't do nothin other than flow Life's a bitch like the mother from +Blow+, let's go Don't make me put your heart in your lap Fuck ridin the beat, nigga, I parallel park on the track Hop out lookin crispy, fresh and new In the six, but it's a BM, and it's Pepsi blue And, I don't know you. But I know a man becomes a man from all the shit that he go through Ya'll ain't fuckin with Jason After I cash in, there's really no justification Of how I'm gonna change the game, so don't get outta line Cause this little nine will change your frame, what up [Chorus]

Future Plans

(Keith Urban) It's six Monday morning, she's back into her routine Kicks off the covers and thinks about last night's dream Shower and coffee, she heads for the train Thinkin' how every day's the same There's gotta be more than life of her own All that she wants is a man to come home too CHORUS: She's lookin' for someone to love her And stay forever true Just somebody who she can believe in And say they need her too She's lookin' for somebody to hold her Until the light of day Someone she can make future plans with And know he's here to stay Late in the evening she is dreamin' in black and white An old love story she wishes portrayed her life No one would know what goes on her mind Thinkin' it's only a matter of time Till someday she finds what she's lookin' for And her ship'll come sailin' into her shore REPEAT CHORUS 2x
