Got on my ride, seen you from afar
And I couldn't stop myself from looking hard
You wore these jeans; Girl, you wore these jeans
And you made a thug wanna cry something terrible
I had to have, have you for myself, baby
You don't know what those jeans do to me
Make me wanna get down on one knee
You got that thunder and it only makes me wonder
How it feels to get up in those jeans
I am a fallen zero;
Below the glaciers of the evil
I am a golden superhero
Above the sun and all the people
Throw me a lifeline, won't you, please?
I'm watchin the news but I'm not at ease
Throw me a lifeline, won't you, please?
Come to the place where I used to play
And put on your peace wires for a day
Look at the radios in the sun
Can you let it pass you by?
I’ve been doin’ my own thing
Love has always had a way of havin’ bad timing
But to my great surprise, ever since I looked in your eyes
I had one question for you
Well, I know it's just a spring haze
But I don't much like the look of it
And if omens are a godsend like men
Certain these clouds go somewhere
Billowing out to somewhere
In a single engine cessna
You say we'll never make it there
So all we do is circle it
I was raised, a little young nigga doin bad shit
Talked much shit cuz I never had shit
I remember gettin whupped in class,
And if I didn't pass, mama whupped my ass
Is it my fault papa didn't plan it out,
Walked out, left me to be the man of the house?
I couldn't take it, tried to make a profit
So I dropped, got a Glock and I clocked grips.
It's not your situation
I just need contemplation over you
I'm not so systematic
It's just that I'm an addict for your love
You're sleepy, go to bed
Wanna step? Go 'head and jet!
Now wake up from your dreamin, cuz you're dealin with the Pep
Like Oakley from the Knicks, yes, I'm havin' a ball
You think because you're leavin that I'm gonna take a fall?
It's a small thing, it was really too small
Livin large, boy, I'm standin 10 feet tall!
Now my heart won't dent, keep the money I lent;
And don't forget, I pay the rent, this is MY apartment!
My first mistake was
I wanted too much time;
I had to have him morning, noon and night
If I would have known then
The things that I know now
I might not have lost the time I complain about.
you, you're attached by a hot wire through my eye
you, you're attached by a quiet wire through my ear
you, you're attached by these sweet pictures you've dug in my brain
I'm on a concrete way
The wind is blowing to the north-northwest
It smells like sand of the southern island
Shame, such a shame
I think I kind of lost myself again
Really should be leaving but I stay
Ranar likul viernopal kar
Ranar likul viernopal
Lenar panar virakeral kar
Lenar panar virakeral
Ehnar lakitu luyarpal kar
Ehnar lakitu luyarpal
Luyan henar terarkel kar
Luyan henar terarkel llukaparsi
Hitori de wa, tooi ashita wo
Yoake no mama de, koesou de

Woke up this morning, found a letter that she wrote
She said she's tired that I'm always on the road
Too hard to swallow being alone
She wants someone at night that she can hold
I promise, she's so self conscious,
She's got no idea what she's doin in college
The major she's majorin in don't make no money
But she won't drop out, her parents'll look at her funny
Now, tell me that ain't insecure
The concept of school seems so secure
Sophomore three years, ain't picked a career,
She's like, "Fuck it, I'll just stay down here and do hair"
I wish I didn't feel it
I know it just ain't right
But it seems to pop up in my head morning, noon and night
I just can't release it;
The memory of you
Mama never told me love would leave me so damn blue
Ain’t found a way to kill me yet
Eyes burn with stinging sweat
Seems every path leads me to nowhere
Wife and kids household pet
Army green was no safe bet
The bullets scream to me from somewhere
You know that I am too
Of what you say is true
I'll never find someone quite like you again
I'll never find someone quite like you, like you
It was a stormy night
You know, the the kind where the lightning strikes
And I was hangin out with some of my artsy friends
The night was long, the night went on
People moving out until the break of dawn
Inscense was burning, so I'm feelin right
Pleased to meet you
Nice to know me
What's the message?
Will you show me?
Broken glass everywhere
People pissing on the stairs, you know they just don’t care
I can’t take the smell, I can’t take the noise
Got no money to move out, I guess I got no choice
Rats in the front room, roaches in the back
Junkies in the alley with a baseball bat
I tried to get away, but I couldn’t get far
Cause the man with the tow-truck repossessed my car
1989, the number, another summer
Sound of the funky drummer
Music hittin' your heart cause I know you got soul
Listen if you're missin' y'all
Swingin' while I'm singin'
Givin' whatcha gettin'
Knowin' what I know
While the Black bands sweatin'
And the rhythm rhymes rollin'
Got to give us what we want
Gotta give us what we need
Our freedom of speech is freedom or death
We got to fight the powers that be
On a dark new year's night
On the west coast of Clare
I heard your voice singing
Your eyes danced the song
Your hands played the tune
T'was a vision before me.
I've been watchin you for very long
Trying to get my nerve built up to be so strong,
I really want to meet you, but I'm kind of scared
Cuz you're the kind of lady with so much class
I get my thoughts together for the very next day
But when I see you, lady, I forget what to say
Your eyes and hair, such a beautiful tone
The way you dress and walk, it really turns me on
Last time I posted something like this, nobody really commented, because I listen to a lot of different music than most people.
Now, I could use that as an excuse to go off on a "nobody gets me" riff, but screw that. I think that's a well established fact by now. Instead, I'm gonna post it AGAIN just to display my musical tastes.
