Amy Winehouse Close To The Front

Only paid attention in your lessons

I Sat close at the front so I could see

Your enthusiastic demonstrations

Teaching to a class of only me

And I couldn?t speak directly to you

Without stuttering or turning red

So looking back I don’t know how I handled it, yeah

Futile frustration in my head

[Chorus 1x:]

I can’t help but analyze your actions,

Neglecting mine

Before I know I’ve fallen hard

And now I tread water in time

Hated it when I saw them together

I sat around waiting for shit to end

Unconsciously I tried to sabotage it

To get revenge on my best friend

Because I was in love with him before her

I had just cause to grieve

So not long after she broke up with him

I got my closure on new years eve

[Chorus 2x]

I love all the bickering and insults

And when I shout at you and you smile

Making coffee while my mind spills over

How I catch your art once in a while

Shouldn?t I have grown a little wiser?

Why haven’t I learned my lesson yet?

And although I have made my love progresses

I tend to learn as much as I forget

[Chorus 3x]

Amy Winehouse Brother

Brother

It’s so much that I could never say to your face

But by now

You should know the world and all its ways

So find your place

How do I find words that do not condescend

When she bore you before me

Cause she doesn’t need a child she needs a friend

A son, not a sob story

(Now you look out for her the way she did for you)

And your priority it must be heard

(Now you look out for her the way she did for you)

Cause we’ll never be the way we were

She can’t always be there just to hold you down

Our mother

When you are at a age now, well life turns around

My brother

Realize that you don’t have to answer to no man

Responsibility comes down to you

But how can I expect you to understand

When you live life like it’s so run-through

(Now you look out for her the way she did for you)

And your priority, it must be heard

(Now you look out for her the way she did for you)

Cause we’ll never be the way we were

The way we were

We’ll never be

At your priority, it must be her

Amy Winehouse October Song

Today my bird flew away

gone to find her big blue jay

Starlight before she took flight

I sung a lullaby of bird land everynight

I sang a lullaby every night

sang for my Ava every night.

Ava was the morning, now she’s gone

she’s reborn like Sarah Vaughan

In the sanctuary she has found

birds surround her sweet sound

and Ava flies in paradise

and Ava flies in paradise

With dread I woke in my bed

to shooting pains up in my head

Lovebird, my beautiful bird

Spoken ’til one day she couldn’t be heard

She spoke until one day she coudlnt be heard

she just stopped singing

Ava was the morning, now she’s gone

she’s reborn like Sarah Vaughan

In the sanctuary she has found

birds surround her sweet sound

and Ava flies in paradise [x3]

Amy Winehouse My Own Way

I’ve never been in love before

Such a foolish thing to be

Seems to me the price is high

But I’ll keep my own company

And I do what I want, when I feel

Watch them fall so easily

Temporary insanity

Some say that true love is blind

Me, I like to clarify

While I, just take, my own time

And I

I’ll go my own way

I walk when I wanna

Talk, talk when I wanna

Finding my own way

I walk when I wanna

Talk, talk when I wanna

Seems to be illogical

Love that’s unconditional, yeah

Give your heart to someone else

But save a little for yourself

That’s why I’m taking my own time

And I’m

I’ll go my own way

I walk when I wanna

Talk, talk when I wanna

Finding my own way

I walk when I wanna

Talk, talk when I wanna

Don’t get me wrong

It’s kind of cynical

But it’s scares me, though

So I’m careful with my heart

It’s the only one I got

I cannot commit to that shit

I’ll go my own way

I walk when I wanna

Talk, talk when I wanna

Finding my own way

I walk when I wanna

Talk, talk when I wanna

Amy Winehouse It’s My Party

[Chorus]

It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to

Cry if I want to, cry if I want to

You would cry too if it happened to you

Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone

But Judy left the same time

Why was he holding her hand

When he’s supposed to be mine?

[Chorus]

It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to

Cry if I want to, cry if I want to

You would cry too if it happened to you

Play all my records, keep dancing all night

But leave me alone for a while

‘Til Johnny’s dancing with me,

I’ve got no reason to smile

[Chorus]

It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to

Cry if I want to, cry if I want to

You would cry too if it happened to you

[Instrumental Bridge]

Judy and Johnny just walked through the door

Like a queen with her king

Oh, what a birthday surprise

Judy’s wearing his ring

[Chorus]

It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to

Cry if I want to, cry if I want to

You would cry too if it happened to you

[repeat and fade out]

Amy Winehouse Do Me Good

[Verse 1]

Do me good

Got back together with my man last night

But I think I was dreaming he didnt feel quite right

I pressed his chest under my fingertips

Beside myself I sighed and reminded of his lips

[Hook]

Im confused and quizical

Funny dontcha know

I just wan get physical

Let me tell ya how

[Chorus]

Do me good I’ll tell you anything you want to hear

Do me good do me good do me good do me good

Do me good and all this craziness will disappear

Do me good do me good do me good do me good

(We out)

[Verse 2]

Its like he was designed with me in mind

Hes so good from behind

Hes beautifully defined

I miss him most of all when it got late

Attempt to hear him breathing

Or feel his shifting weight

[Hook]

Im confused and quizical

Funny wontcha know

I just wan get physical

Let me tell ya how

[Chorus]

Do me good I’ll tell you anything you want to hear

Do me good do me good do me good do me good

Do me good and all this craziness will disappear

Do me good do me good do me good do me good

(We out)

[Break]

[Chorus x3]

Amy Winehouse Fool’s Gold

She sits home and dreams

That her man will leave his mark on her hand

He’s not all he seems

But she’s seen a dress, she has the flowers planned

Now she won’t be happy

Till she looks down and sees the engagement ring

It’s for security

Cause she will be waiting years for her wedding

For me it ain’t real, it’s fools gold

There too many fools sold, not an excuse

For me it ain’t real, it’s fools gold

I don’t hear everything I’m told

He won’t change her life

He just chasing tail and wasting her time

She calls herself his wife

He calls her at 8 and says be here by 9

She don’t notice how when she gets the ring it’s not a good fit

So next time that they row she throws it out

It goes to the last girl he hit

For me it ain’t real, it’s fools gold

There too many fools sold, not an excuse

For me it ain’t real, it’s fools gold

I don’t hear everything I’m told

So take the gold you find

And for your own sake hold it in your hand

Now make sure you bite down

And watch your tooth don’t break on that wedding band

For me it ain’t real, it’s fools gold

There too many fools sold, not an excuse

For me it ain’t real, yes it’s fools gold

Fools gold, fools gold

Amy Winehouse Tears Dry On Their Own

All I can ever be to you

Is a darkness that we knew

And this regret I’ve got accustomed to

Once it was so right

When we were at our height

Waiting for you in the hotel at night

I knew I hadn’t met my match

But every moment we could snatch

I don’t know why I got so attached

It’s my responsibility

And you don’t owe nothing to me

But to walk away I have no capacity

He walks away

The sun goes down

He takes the day

But I’m grown

And in your way

In this blue shade

My tears dry on their own

I don’t understand

Why do I stress the man

When there’s so many bigger things at hand

We could a never had it all

We had to hit a wall

So this is inevitable withdrawal

Even if I stop wanting you

A perspective pushes through

I’ll be some next man’s other woman soon

I can not play myself again

I should just be my own best friend

Not fuck myself in the head with stupid men

He walks away

The sun goes down

He takes the day

But I’m grown

And in your way

In this blue shade

My tears dry on their own

So we are history

Your shadow covers me

The sky above

Ablaze

He walks away

The sun goes down

He takes the day

But I’m grown

And in your way

In this blue shade

My tears dry on their own

I wish I could say no regrets

And no emotional debts

‘Cause as we kiss goodbye the sun sets

So we are history

The shadow covers me

The sky above

Ablaze that only lovers see

He walks away

The sun goes down

He takes the day

But I’m grown

And in your way

My blue shade

My tears dry on their own

He walks away

The sun goes down

He takes the day

But I’m grown

And in your way

My deep shade

My tears dry on their own

He walks away

The sun goes down

He takes the day

But I’m grown

And in your way

My deep shade

My tears dry

Amy Winehouse Amy Amy Amy / Outro

Attracts me, till it hurts to concentrate,

Distract me, stop me doing work I hate

Just to show him how it feels;

I walk past his desk in heels

One leg resting on the chair

From the side he pulls my hair.

[Chorus:]

Amy Amy Amy

Although I’ve been here before

Amy Amy Amy

He’s just too hard to ignore

Masculine you spin a spell

I think you’d wear me well

Amy Amy Amy

Where’s my moral parallel?

It takes me half an hour to write a verse

He makes me imagine it from bad to worse

My weakness for the other sex

Every time his shoulders flex

The way the shirt hangs off his back

My train of thought spins right off track

[Chorus]

His own style, right down to his Diesel jeans

Immobile, I can’t think by any means

Underwear peeks out the top

I’ll let you know when you should stop

From the picture my mind drew

I know I’d look good on you

[Chorus]

Creative energy abused

All my lyrics go unused

When I clock black hair blue eyes

I drift off I fantasize

[Chorus x2]

Amy Winehouse Some Unholy War

If my man was fighting

Some unholy war

I would be behind him

Straight shook up beside him

With strength he didn’t know

It’s you I’m fighting for

He can’t lose with me in tow

I refuse to let him go

At his side and drunk on pride

We wait for the blow

We put it in writing

But who you writing for

Just us on kitchen floor

Justice done,

Reciting my stomach standing still

Like you’re reading my will

He still stands in spite of what his scars say

And I’ll battle ’til this bitter finale

Just me, my dignity and this guitar case

Yes my man is fighting some unholy war

And I will stand beside you

And who you dying for

B – I would have died too

I’d have liked too

If my man was fighting

Some unholy war

If my man was fighting
