Good Lyrics thread

Discussion in 'Music genres, Bands and Artists' started by RastaFloyd, Jul 3, 2004.

  1. hey, sorry if this has been done before, im new here. Anyway this is a thread for posting lyrics to good songs. I'll start with
    Ben Harper - Burn One Down

    Let us burn one from end to end,
    And pass it over to me my friend.
    Burn it long, we'll burn it slow,
    To light me up before I go.

    If you don't like my fire, then don't come around,
    'cause I'm gonna burn one down.
    Yes, I'm gonna burn one down.

    My choice is what I choose to do,
    And if I'm causing no harm, it shouldn't bother you.

    Your choice is who you choose to be,
    And if you're causin' no harm, then you're alright with me.

    If you don't like my fire, then don't come around,
    'cause I'm gonna burn one down.
    Yes, I'm gonna burn one down.

    Herb the gift from the earth,
    And what's from the earth is of the greatest worth.
    So before you knock it try it first,
    Oh, you'll see it's a blessing and not a curse.

    If you don't like my fire, then don't come around,
    'cause I'm gonna burn one down.
    Yes, I'm gonna burn one, oohhh.
     
  2. One Sweet World

    Nine planets round the sun
    Only one does the sun embrace
    Upon this watered one
    So much we take for granted

    So let us sleep outside tonight
    Lay down in our mother's arms
    For here we can rest safely

    If green should slip to gray
    But our hearts still bloody be
    And if mountains crumble away
    And the river dry
    Would it stop the stepping feet

    Take all that we can get
    When it's done
    Nobody left to bury here
    Nobody left to dig the holes
    And here we can rest safely

    One sweet world
    Around a star is spinning
    One sweet world
    And in her breath I'm swimming
    And here we will rest in peace

    (p.s. - try the ben and jerry's "one sweet whirl")
     
  3. "Light my fire" by the doors

    You know that it would be untrue
    You know that I would be a liar
    If I was to say to you
    Girl, we couldn't get much higher

    Come on baby, light my fire
    Come on baby, light my fire
    Try to set the night on fire


    Rest in peace Morrison

  5. 2-Pac "Dear Mama"

    You are appreciated

    [Verse One: 2Pac]

    When I was young me and my mama had beef
    Seventeen years old kicked out on the streets
    Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face
    Ain't a woman alive that could take my mama's place
    Suspended from school; and scared to go home, I was a fool
    with the big boys, breakin all the rules
    I shed tears with my baby sister
    Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids
    And even though we had different daddy's, the same drama
    When things went wrong we'd blame mama
    I reminice on the stress I caused, it was hell
    Huggin on my mama from a jail cell
    And who'd think in elementary?
    Heeey! I see the penitentiary, one day
    And runnin from the police, that's right
    Mama catch me, put a whoopin to my backside
    And even as a crack fiend, mama
    You always was a black queen, mama
    I finally understand
    for a woman it ain't easy tryin to raise a man
    You always was committed
    A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it
    There's no way I can pay you back
    But the plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated


    Lady...
    Don't cha know we love ya? Sweet lady
    Dear mama
    Place no one above ya, sweet lady
    You are appreciated
    Don't cha know we love ya?


    Now ain't nobody tell us it was fair
    No love from my daddy cause the coward wasn't there
    He passed away and I didn't cry, cause my anger
    wouldn't let me feel for a stranger
    They say I'm wrong and I'm heartless, but all along
    I was lookin for a father he was gone
    I hung around with the Thugs, and even though they sold drugs
    They showed a young brother love
    I moved out and started really hangin
    I needed money of my own so I started slangin
    I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks
    It feels good puttin money in your mailbox
    I love payin rent when the rent's due
    I hope ya got the diamond necklace that I sent to you
    Cause when I was low you was there for me
    And never left me alone because you cared for me
    And I could see you comin home after work late
    You're in the kitchen tryin to fix us a hot plate
    Ya just workin with the scraps you was given
    And mama made miracles every Thanksgivin
    But now the road got rough, you're alone
    You're tryin to raise two bad kids on your own
    And there's no way I can pay you back
    But my plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated


    Pour out some liquor and I reminsce, cause through the drama
    I can always depend on my mama
    And when it seems that I'm hopeless
    You say the words that can get me back in focus
    When I was sick as a little kid
    To keep me happy there's no limit to the things you did
    And all my childhood memories
    Are full of all the sweet things you did for me
    And even though I act craaazy
    I gotta thank the Lord that you made me
    There are no words that can express how I feel
    You never kept a secret, always stayed real
    And I appreciate, how you raised me
    And all the extra love that you gave me
    I wish I could take the pain away
    If you can make it through the night there's a brighter day
    Everything will be alright if ya hold on
    It's a struggle everyday, gotta roll on
    And there's no way I can pay you back
    But my plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated
     
  6. THURSDAY LYRICS

    "Understanding In A Car Crash"

    Splintered piece of glass falls in the seat, gets caught
    These broken windows, open locks, reminders of the youth we lost
    In trying so hard to look away from you
    we followed white lines to the sunset
    I crash my car everyday the same way

    Time to let this pass
    (the time it takes, the time it takes to let go)
    Time runs through our veins
    (it starts and stops and starts and stops again)
    We don't stand a chance in this threadbare time
    (the time it takes, the time it takes to let go)
    Time to let this pass
    (the time it takes, the time it takes to let go)

    Staring at the setting sun
    No reason to come back again
    The twilight world in blue and white
    The needle and the damage done

    I don't want to feel this way forever
    A dead letter marked return to sender

    The broken watch you gave me turns into a compass
    It's two hands still point to the same time 12:03, our last goodbye

    So push the seats back a little further
    I can see the headlights coming
    So push the seats back a little further
    Roll the windows down and take a breath
    I can see the headlights coming
    They paint the world in red and broken glass

    Time to let this pass
    (the time it takes, the time it takes to let go)
    Time runs through our veins.
    (it starts and stops and starts and stops again)
    We don't stand a chance in this threadbare time
    (the time it takes, the time it takes to let go)
    Time to let this pass
    (the time it takes, the time it takes to let go)

    Staring at the setting sun
    No reason to come back again
    The twilight world in blue and white
    The needle and the damage done

    I don't want to feel this way forever
    A dead letter marked return to sender

    The spinning hubcaps set the tempo for the music of a broken window
    the cameras on and the cameras click
    we open up the lens and cant stop

    Staring at the setting sun
    No reason to come back again
    The twilight world in blue and white
    The needle and the damage done

    I don't want to feel this way forever
    the lights are on and the cameras click
    we open up the lens to broken glass

    Staring at the setting sun
    No reason to come back again
    The twilight world in blue and white
    The needle and the damage done

    i don't want to feel this way forever
    a dead letter marked return to sender

    (I'll never understand
    Understanding in a car crash)
     
  7. Dizzee Rascal
    "The Lost Lyrics"

    Yo, raised in the gutter I was told I should fight,
    I create and cause confusion from the left to the right,
    I'm sweet as a nut I'm doing alright cosy and comfortable,
    Still I try and avoid the sergeant, PC and the constable,
    Raised in the gutter I was told I should put,
    I create and cause confusion from the bottom to the top,
    I'm doing ok I can honestly say,
    This year I'm flying through,
    I could easily find myself a job but I ain't trying to,
    I keep it clear and frank,
    Relax with the pressure,
    I'm dirty and I'm stank,
    But ain't nobody fresher,
    My haters make enquiries, make it obvious they care,
    But when it comes to my location they would love to be aware,
    But I could be in the manor, I could be overseas,
    I could well be definitely making peas,
    I could be live at Wembley warming up for Jay-Z,
    But I'm definitely certain that you can't see me,
    Definite I hustle, blood, Definitely I grind,
    So you can try anything you want,
    I definitely don't mind,
    I definitely got my ting, I definitely know your face,
    So don't jump out of your pram, I'll definitely put you in your place,
    Definite I hustle, blood, Definite I grass,
    So you can try anything you want,
    I'll definitely just laugh,
    Definitely got my sword,
    It's definitely really sharp,
    So don't keep talking like yo' brat, I'll definitely get dark,
    Definite I hustle, blood, Definitely I fly,
    So you can try anything you want, I'll definitely just sigh,
    I definitely know I'm real,
    I definitely know you ain't,
    So don't try and be no devil cos I'm definitely no saint,
    Definite I hustle, blood, Definite I grin,
    So you keep taking this for a joke, I'll definitely just grin,
    Definitely can't have heard,
    Definitely couldn't know,
    Don't talk like your on top I'll leave you definitely below.
     
  8. check out mah sig
     
  9. I'm a backdoor man
    Oh, baby, I'm a backdoor man.
    The men don't know, but their little girls understand.
     
  10. Rage against the machine
    Bullet In The Head

    This time the bullet cold rocked ya
    A yellow ribbon instead of a swastika
    Nothin' proper about ya propaganda
    Fools follow rules when the set commands ya
    Said it was blue
    When ya blood was red
    That's how ya got a bullet blasted through ya head

    Blasted through ya head
    Blasted through ya head

    I give a shout out to the living dead
    Who stood and watched as the feds cold centralised?
    So serene on the screen
    You was mesmerised
    Cellular phones soundin' a death tone
    Corporations cold
    Turn ya to stone before ya realise

    They load the clip in omnicolour
    Said they pack the 9, they fire it at prime time
    The sleeping gas, every home was like Alcatraz
    And mutha fuckas lost their minds

    Just victims of the in-house drive-by
    They say jump, you say how high
    Yeah
    Just victims of the in-house drive-by
    They say jump, you say how high
    Run it!

    (Tom Busts his insanity out)(Solo)

    Just victims of the in-house drive-by
    They say jump, you say how high
    Just victims of the in-house drive-by
    They say jump, you say how high

    Check-a, check-a, check it out
    They load the clip in omnicolour
    Said they pack the 9, they fire it at prime time
    The sleeping gas, every home was like Alcatraz
    And mutha fuckas lost their minds

    No escape from the mass mind rape
    Play it again jack and then rewind the tape
    And then play it again and again and again
    Until ya mind is locked in
    Believin' all the lies that they're tellin' ya
    Buyin' all the products that they're sellin' ya
    They say jump and ya say how high
    Ya brain-dead
    Ya gotta fuckin' bullet in ya head

    Just victims of the in-house drive-by
    They say jump, you say how high
    Yeah
    Just victims of the in-house drive-by
    They say jump, you say how high

    Uggh! Yeah! Yea!

    Ya standin' in line
    Believin' the lies
    Ya bowin' down to the flag
    Ya gotta bullet in ya head

    Ya standin' in line
    Believin' the lies
    Ya bowin' down to the flag
    Ya gotta bullet in ya head

    A bullet in ya head
    A bullet in ya head
    Ya gotta bullet in ya fuckin' head!

    Yeah!
    Yeah!(END)

    Fuck the American goverment!
    Its all corruption and lies.
     
  11. Hell yeah, listening Rage Against The Machine lyrics while stoned is a story in hand!
     
  12. I love listening to Guster!!

    Fa-Fa

    When you look in the mirror,
    wish you were somebody else
    Just a perfect reflection,
    you and no one else
    Minutes run into hours,
    hours run into days
    You're still waiting for someone who never ever came

    Fa Fa-Fa Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa
    Never be the same again
    Fa Fa-Fa Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa
    Never be the same again

    You were always saying something,
    you swear you'd never say again
    You were always saying something,
    you swear you'd never say again
    Fa Fa-Fa Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa
    Never be the same again
    Fa Fa-Fa Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa
    Never be the same again

    Go and run through the hallways,
    and find your way to the door
    You will end up like always,
    back where you were before
    Can you look in the mirror,
    wish you were somebody else
    But it's still your reflection,
    you and no one else
    You were always saying something,
    you swear you'd never say again
    You were always saying something,
    you swear you'd never say again

    Fa Fa-Fa Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa
    Never be the same again
    Fa Fa-Fa Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa
    Never be the same again

    No matter where you go,
    you'll never find your way home
    You'll never find your way home no matter where you go
    You were always saying something,
    you swear you'd never say again
    You were always saying something,
    you swear you'd never say again

    Fa Fa-Fa Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa
    Never be the same again
    Fa Fa-Fa Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa
    Never be the same again
     
  13. Bob Dylan - Mr. Tambourine Man

    Hey Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Though I know that evenin's empire has returned into sand,
    Vanished from my hand,
    Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping.
    My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet,
    I have no one to meet
    And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.

    Hey Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship,
    My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip,
    My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels
    To be wanderin'.
    I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
    Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way,
    I promise to go under it.

    Hey Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Though you might hear laughin', spinnin', swingin' madly across the sun,
    It's not aimed at anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
    And but for the sky there are no fences facin'.
    And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme
    To your tambourine in time, it's just a ragged clown behind,
    I wouldn't pay it any mind, it's just a shadow you're
    Seein' that he's chasing.

    Hey Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind,
    Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
    The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
    Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
    Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
    Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
    With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
    Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

    Hey Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
    Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
     
  14. when i first read the title of the thread, Burn One Down was what i was going to put.... but Ben Harper is still awesome soo...Alone

    This empty room it fills my mind
    Freedom it leaves me confined
    Every single wall has cracked
    But in this life you can't turn back

    I don't want to live,
    I don't want to live alone
    Alone
    Alone
    Alone

    As these words are with my tongue
    I question why they're even sung
    I have promised but I lied
    I don't even know myself inside

    I don't want to be,
    I don't wanna be here alone
    Alone
    Alone
    Alone

    Today and tomorrow have become one
    Every single thing has become none
    Human nature is a beast
    What I've done the most to show I have the least

    Please don't leave me here,
    please don't leave me here
    Don't you leave me alone
    Alone
    Alone
    Alone
     
  15. a song by a very unknown band called flaw this is the chorus to "my letter"

  16. bobby brown by frank zappa, it's about the rapper bobby brown, who frank despised. He made this song about him and it's great.

    Hey there people I'm Bobby BRown
    They say I'm the cutest boy in town
    My car is fast, my teeth are shiney
    I tell all the girls they can kiss my hiney

    Here I am at the famous school
    I'm dressing sharp and I'm acting cool
    I got a cheerleader here, wants to help with my paper
    Let her do all the work and maybe later I'll rape her

    Oh God I am the american dream

    I do not think I'm too extreme

    And I'm a handsom son of a bitch

    I'm gonna get a good job and be well rich

    ( get a good, get a good, get a good, get a good job)

    Women's liberation
    Came creeping all across the nation
    I tell you people, I was not ready
    When I Fucked this dyke by the name of Freddy

    She made a little speach then
    uuh, she tried to make me say when
    She had my balls in a vice, but she left the dick
    I guess it's still hooked on but now it shoots too quick

    Oh God I am the american dream
    But now I smell like vaseline
    I'm a miserable son of a bitch
    Am I a boy or a lady, I don't know which
    ( I wonder, wonder, I wonder, wonder)

    So I went out and bought me a leisure suit
    I jingle my change, but I'm still kinda cute
    Got a job doing radio promo
    And none of the jocks can even tell I'm a homo

    Eventually me and a friend
    Sort of drifted along into S&M
    I can take about an hour on the tower of power
    As long as I gets a little golden shower

    Oh God, I am the american dream
    With a spindle up my butt 'till it makes me scream
    And I'll do anything to get ahead
    I lay awake nights saying "Thank you, Fred"



    Oh God, oh God, I'm so fantastic


    Thanks to Freddie, I'm a sexual spastic


    And my name is Bobby Brown


    Watch me now, I'm going down

    And my name is Bobby Brown


    Watch me now, I'm going down
