RAZORLIGHT lyrics - Up All Night

In The City

Original and similar lyrics
Well it's a close one, a real close one And no-one gets hurt, but she's got twice the fun But now they kiss in the rain And did someone call out someone's name From a white cadillac on a wide wind To her white dress across the great divide Into the warm moonlight And she's been reading Bukowski for days And she leans over, spits her name in my face And says 'Well now you know how it feels' Well now you know how it feels And I was looking for you Looking for you Looking for you in the city last night The boys in the band steal a kiss in the mystery of the night 11:59 to zero, live a blonde hair in jeans, holds her tight Turns on the heat and starts to fight and sayin' 'that's my man' Well the myth of love must have been there The spirit of possession was there And the boys over at the bar Yeah they're mixing up their medicine The girls were on their mobile trying to get reception Johnny's shadow's getting long but he keeps on singing His shadow getting long but he keeps on singing: And I was looking for you Looking for you Looking for you in the city last night And people so strange People so strange People just keep talking in the city last night Take off your shades and scroll down to number nine You're living on the guest list, up against the big rack Head back, hand highs, it's getting loud in here Think you're going to have to shout And she's tearing off her clothes He's stirring all his drinks, oh yeah Streets divide them It's an empire of signs Honey say she can read And it looks like trouble And it tastes like chocolate if you want it It looks like trouble And it tastes like chocolate if you want it Still I was looking for you Looking for you Looking for you in the city last night And people so strange People so strange People just keep talking in the city last night And I was looking for you And I was looking for you And I was looking for you in the city last night And I was looking for you Yeah I was looking for you Yeah I was looking for you in the city last night It's alright! It's alright! If you say my name It's alright!

Wishing Well

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT "The Airborne Toxic Event"
Standing on a bus stop Feeling your head pop Out in the night In the kind of night Where you want to be out On the street, on the street Crawling up the walls Like a cat in heat And the air is thin And it blows through your skin And you feel like something Is about to begin But you don't know what And you don't know when So you tear at your hair And you scratch at your skin You wanna run away, run away Just get on the fucking train and leave today And it doesn't matter where you spend the night You just might end up somewhere in a fight, in a fight Or caught in your room in a concrete shell Fighting all alone, with yourself, with yourself And you just wanna feel like a coin that's been tossed In a wishing well, a wishing well A wishing well, a wishing well Well you're tossed in the air And you fell and you fell Through the dark blue waters Where you cast your spell Like you were just a wish that could turn out well So you stand on the corner Where the angels sit And you think to yourself, "This is it, this is it This is all that I have All I can stand Is this air in my lungs And this coin in my hand That you tossed in the air And I fell, and I fell All the way to the bottom Of the well, of the well." Like those soft little secrets That you tell, that you tell To yourself when you think No one's listening too well And the walls spin And you're paper-thin From the haze of the smoke And the mescaline The sweat of your brow Under unmade sheets In your ear with the noise From the darkened streets Where you ran far and wide You screamed, you cried You thought suicide was an alibi But you were always a mess You were always aloof Yeah, it's awful, I guess But it's the awful truth It was true from the first To the last words that she read And she emerged from the dark Like a ghost in my head She said, "I haven't forgot Any words that you said I just stare at the clocks And I cry in my sleep And I tear up your letters And I burn them in heaps And I gather the ashes In that hole in the ground Where we fell"

Ballad Of Yarmouth Castle

GORDON LIGHTFOOT "Sunday Concert"
Well, it's four o'clock in the afternoon And the anchors have been weighed From Miami to Nassau, She's bound across the waves She'll be headin' south through Biscayne Bay Into the open sea Yarmouth Castle, she's a-dyin' and don't know it Now the many years she's been to sea She's seen the better times She gives a groan of protest As they cast away her lines And the grumble of her engines And the rust along her spine Tells the Castle she's too old to be sailin' But the sands run out within her heart A tiny spark glows red It smoulders through the evening There's laughter overhead Now the men are served, and the cards are dealt And the drinks are passed around Deep within the fire starts a-burnin' Now it's midnight on the open sea And the moon is shining bright Some people join the party And others say good-night There's many who are sleeping now It's been a busy day And a tiny wisp of smoke is a-risin' Oh Lord, she groans, I'm burning! Let someone understand! But her silent plea is wasted In the playin' of the band Everybody's dancin' on her deck And they're havin' such a time Then a voice says Shut up and deal, I'm losin' Deep within the Yarmouth Castle The fire begins to glow It leaps into the hallways And climbs and twists and grows And the paint she wore to keep her young Oh Lord, how well it burns And soon that old fire is a-ragin' Up beneath the bridge it's climbin' fast the captain stands aloft He calls up to the boatswain, 'n' says Boatswain, we are lost For the ragged hoses in the racks No pressure do they hold And the people down below Will soon be dyin' All amidships, oh she's blazin' now It's spreadin' fore and aft The people are a-scramblin' As the fire blocks their path The evil smoke surrounds them, And they're fallin' in their tracks And the captain in his lifeboat is a-leavin' Oh then the ship, Bahama Star Comes steamin' through the night She sees the Castle blazin' And 'tis a terrible sight Jump down, jump down! the captain cries We'll save you if we can! Then the paint on his funnels is a-fryin' God help the ones who sleep below And cannot find the way! Thank God for those we've rescued Upon this awful day. Now the heroes, they are many, But the times are growin' slim And now from stern to bow She's a-blazin' Oh the Yarmouth Castle's moanin' She's cryin' like a child. You can hear her if you listen Above the roar so wild Is she cryin' for the ones who lie Within her molten sides? Or cryin' for herself, I'm a-wonderin' But the livin' soon were rescued The ones who lived to tell From the Star they watched her As she died there in the swells Like a toy ship on a mill pond She burned all through the night Then slipped 'neath the waves In the mornin'

Night Riders

Boot Camp Clik "For the People"
Night riders, ni-night riders Night riders, ni-night riders [Steele] Let the games begin A few good men called in on assignment time to rhyme with War General connection, black Smif-N-Wessun Watch your section, the night moves in three directions calculatin, watch those steps you takin You never know who lies in the shadows waitin [Tek] For you to make a slipup cause they clocked your moves Peep where you stashed the night and how you rock the ice jewels You was at the bar mackin, blowin up the Jack when they caught you off point and stripped you of your royal fashions You thought it couldn't happen -- cause youse the talk of the block But you just been rocked in your man's gamblin spot [Buckshot] Ride on, you see B.D.B. when you come on down You see Smoky Ride when you come on down You see S-T when you come on down You see B.C.C. I float, I fly, I walk with the devil by my side, always and forever days I battle the demon, schemin on my riches Cause my family switched from un to organized thoughts and we organize now, how you like that? We strike right, B.D. got you on the eye so I got you trapped, but it seems like the blueprint ain't made for that, those devilish and wickedness ways But look at how the wicked get splayed The image that the wicked is goin in time, but time is the illusion, Buck keep the conclusion You better believe when you walk dem streets Walk witcha eyes up when you rise up I see, cause every mornin that I wake up there's always a five in the air ready to fuck with me So what cha'll here to represent -- Boot Camp What we here to represent -- Boot Camp What cha'll people represent -- Boot Camp What we here to represent -- B.C.C. When you come on down, you see B.D.B. When you come on down, you see S.T. When you come on down, you see Smoky Ride When you come on down, you see B.C.C. What cha'll here to represent -- the Boot Camp [Buckshot] Hah, connection connect to resurrect those who think mind detect if you keep my people in check, one thought elevate, manifest light We keep my people equal in my eyesight [Steele] Duck Down Entaprizin, tryin to get right I fight cause I believe there's more to life There's a mark on my head, but ain't the mark of the beast but I got beef cause the beast keep runnin up in my piece [Tek] I'm hearin rumors fly about me that I moved from the hood Bought a crib out in 'Lanta like it's really all good And there I push a Ac' with my wifey and seeds Got hits that play the yards and I'm sittin on G's Cause Da Shinin went gold but you've been falsely told Don't believe in everything your ears and eyes behold [Buckshot] And just when you thought it was safe -- surprise Open your eyes -- B.C.C.'s on the rise Heh, don't get mad, you see, change is good If what you learn don't change, yourself then why are you learnin what you learnin? Listen, change is good and we doin this elevatin in the neighborhood So all my people if you wit me, throw your hands in the air and let me know you're with B.C.C. *singing to end*

One Night In Bangkok

C21
Bangkok, Oriental setting And the city don't know that the city is getting The creme de la creme of the chess world in a Show with everything but Yul Brynner Time flies -- doesn't seem a minute Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it All change -- don't you know that when you Play at this level there's no ordinary venue It's Iceland -- or the Philippines -- or Hastings -- or -- or this place! One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free You'll find a god in every golden cloister And if you're lucky then the god's a she I can feel an angel sliding up to me One town's very like another When your head's down over your pieces, brother It's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity To be looking at the board, not looking at the city Whaddya mean? Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town -- Tea, girls, warm and sweet Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite Get Thai'd! You're talking to a tourist Whose every move's among the purest I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble Not much between despair and ecstasy One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble Can't be too careful with your company I can feel the devil walking next to me Siam's gonna be the witness To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness This grips me more than would a Muddy old river or reclining Buddha And thank God I'm only watching the game -- controlling it -- I don't see you guys rating The kind of mate I'm contemplating I'd let you watch, I would invite you But the queens we use would not excite you So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage parlours -- One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free You'll find a god in every golden cloister A little flesh, a little history I can feel an angel sliding up to me One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble Not much between despair and ecstasy One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble Can't be too careful with your company I can feel the devil walking next to me
