Ivy Levan It Ain’t Easy

Inside me, a fire’s still burning

I wake up each morning

Tryna to figure it out

I know that the world keeps turning

But I keep on hurting

The one I care about

But I keep on trying

And I keep on trying

Oh, you’ll never see

That it ain’t easy, it ain’t easy

Loving me

Loving me

Loving me

Stay with me and things will get better

I never say never

But there’s never a doubt

I don’t want to end up divided

I’ve already decided

That I’ll find this one out

But I keep on trying

And I keep on trying

Oh, you’ll never see

That it ain’t easy, it ain’t easy

Loving me

Loving me

Loving me

Loving me

Baby sit tight, it’s a long ride

As long as I die with you by my side

Now that you’re here, I never want you to leave

You best believe that…

It ain’t easy

No it ain’t easy, no it ain’t easy

No it ain’t easy, loving me

Ivy Levan 27 Club

You, you tried to play it safe

But I am planning my escape.

Yeah you want your picket fence,

but I can’t even pay the rent.

I’d rather burn out then spend my life waiting.

I wanna go down, down in history.

Everybody’s gonna know me when I die,

So I don’t give a damn if I survive.

I’d rather burn out then spend my life waiting.

You keep it slow and steady.

I am more then good and ready.

And you set on for second place,

but I won’t even run the race.

I’d rather burn out then spend my life waiting.

I wanna go down, down in history.

Everybody’s gonna know me when I die,

So I don’t give a damn if I survive.

I’d rather burn out then spend my life waiting.

Yeah, yeah, ooh ooh

I’d rather burn out then spend my life waiting.

I wanna go down, down in history.

Everybody’s gonna know me when I die,

So I don’t give a damn if I survive.

I’d rather burn out then spend my life waiting.

Ivy Levan Johnny Boy

Whatever happened to the days

We were in love like one of those Shakespeare plays

We’d buy that house up on the hill

Keep the flowers you gave me on the windowsill

But you left me hanging on the end of the line

Going “hello, hello, where’s my Johnny boy?”

Promised me forever, everything would be fine

Oh, “hello, hello, where’s my Johnny boy?”

You didn’t give a reason, you didn’t tell me why

No you just, left me hanging on the end of the line

Going “hello, where’s my Johnny boy?”

Since you’ve been gone, I’ve been so low

Just sitting around staring at the telephone

Cause I bought that house up on the hill

There’s nothing but dust on empty windowsills

But you left me hanging on the end of the line

Going “hello, hello, where’s my Johnny boy?”

Promised me forever, everything would be fine

Oh, “hello, where’s my Johnny boy?”

You didn’t give a reason, you didn’t tell me why

No you just, left me hanging on the end of the line

Going “hello, where’s my Johnny boy?”

This ain’t my home sweet home

Loving you is all I know

This ain’t my home sweet home

No this can’t be home sweet home

Loving you is all I know

This ain’t my home sweet home

You left me hanging on the end of the line

Going “hello, hello, where’s my Johnny boy?”

Promised me forever, everything would be fine

Oh, “hello, hello, where’s my Johnny boy?”

You didn’t give a reason, you didn’t tell me why

No you just, left me hanging on the end of the line

Going “hello, where’s my Johnny boy?”

Ivy Levan Misery

You got back this morning, sometime around ten

Said you won’t, then you go and do it again

Hmmm, and now I don’t trust us, can’t hear what you say

Cause I know what you’ll do to get your way

Oh, sometimes the one that you think that you love, turns out to be a fake

I hope you’re happy for all of the misery you’ve made

I hope you’re happy for all of the misery you’ve made

And I hope it follows you down to your grave

You’re gonna carry that weight, carry that weight

You’re gonna carry that weight for all the misery you’ve made (oh, baby)

Go on and tell me that story, sliding rot through your teeth

But you got someone else all over your sleeve, hey

Stop tryna be clever, we both know you’re not

Only act like you care cause you got caught

Oh, sometimes the one that you think that you love, turns out to be a fake

I hope you’re happy for all of the misery you’ve made

I hope you’re happy for all of the misery you’ve made

And I hope it follows you down to your grave

You’re gonna carry that weight, carry that weight

You’re gonna carry that weight for all the misery you’ve made

The misery you’ve made, the misery you’ve made (oh)

The misery you’ve made

Ivy Levan I Don’t Wanna Wake Up

Drank too much last night

Bottles everywhere

Woke up in my shoes, what’s a girl to do?

Oh I’m hurtin like a motha, baby please

[Chorus:]

I don’t wanna wake up (no, no, no)

No not today (no, no, no)

Got all fucked up (all fucked up)

I got hell to pay (hell to pay)

I don’t wanna wake up (no, no, no)

No not today (no, no, no)

I told you once, I told you twice

Now let me sleep my blues away

Drank too much last night

I got whiskey in my hair (have mercy)

There’s a grizzly in my bed, a pounding in my head

And it’s raging like a locomotive, no

Hey ladies (yeah?)

I need to break this thing down for just one second

You ever had one those long, long crazy nights?

And you swear you’d never do it again

But you know that shit ain’t true

[Chorus x2]

Ivy Levan Money

They say I shot a man down

For not picking up the check

What they don’t know it won’t hurt ’em

So keep moving down the line

Just cause I like my diamonds bright

Ain’t saying I’m wrong or if it’s right

But baby I haven’t been wrong before

[Chorus:]

Cash is everything I need so show me the money!

Cash is everything I need so give it to me honey!

Oh what you see…is what you get!

And you ain’t seen…nothing yet!

They say I broke a man down

For not giving me respect

Should’ve spent more cause worth I’m it

I just ain’t got the time

You better choose your battles right

Shoot when you see whites’ others’ eyes

Oh baby I wish you had the dough

But you don’t

[Chorus]

Daddy ain’t got no cash

Daddy go six foot deep

Daddy ain’t got no green

Daddy got to go asleep

Daddy ain’t got no cash

Daddy ought to go six deep

Daddy ain’t got no green

Daddy got to go asleep

[Chorus x2]
