The Middle East My Grandma Was Pearl Hall

Mothers

Love their children

Even when they

Are violent.

‘Cause all good

Sons and daughters

Love the ones they

Look like.

Fathers

Keep their kids safe

On the street

Men died.

‘Cause all good

Sons or fathers

Know that kids are

Frightened

Of them.

Went home

With your rocket

But a nearing

Spirit.

Survived

A death adder

But you drowned in

Liquid.

You learned

From your father

How to husband

Animals.

And I learned

from my father

That all men

Are animals.

Jesus,

you’re a fire

In my foreskin

everyday.

Burning

Oh you’re burning

Dead and lonely

You remain.

He is We Love Life

Lalalalalalala

Love Life, what’s that?

Lalalalalalala

Love Life, what’s that?

Hush now.

Quiet down.

Can you hear my heart racing?

Falling to my knees cause I’ve been a chasing a lie. (a lie)

Love life

I don’t know what I was thinking, dipped my toes in, now I’m sinking

I guess it hurts a bit but I’m over it now.

Heartaches and mistakes,

how many hits can a good girl take?

I’m tired of hurting, slowly learning

Irate you’re too late.

Look at the mess that you’ve created

First date you, slight hate

Love life

What’s that?

Lalalalalalalalala Love Life

What’s that?

Lalalalalalalalala Love Life

What’s that?

I tried,(i tried) yes I tried.

But it takes two to make it

I’m obsessed and you can’t fake it

Denied

Deep inside

I wanna break your heart too

Lead you on and up to drop you.

I guess it hurts a bit but I’m over it now.

Heartaches and mistakes, how many hits can a good girl take?

I’m tired of hurting, slowly learning

Irate you’re too late,

Look at the mess that you’ve created

First date you, slight hate

Love life

What’s that?

Lalalalalalalalala Love Life

What’s that?

Lalalalalalalalala Love Life

What’s that?

Grey clouds above me

Like when you said you love me

Winds blowing me away

But part of me will always stay

Eyes closed, arms wide

Embrace the storm that I feel inside

No more crying, no more crying

I don’t mind a chop or two

But god I love that sound, sound

Thunder of my inner chaos slowly calming

Down, down

I look up in the sky

No longer seeing you

Look up in the sky

See the sun coming through

Lalalalalalalalala Love Life

What’s that?

Lalalalalalalalala Love Life

Heartaches and mistakes, how many hits can a good girl take?

I’m tired of hurting, slowly learning

Irate, you’re too late,

Look at the mess that you’ve created

First date you, slight hate

Love life

What’s that?

Lalalalalalalalala Love Life (What’s that?)

Lalalalalalalalala Love Life (What’s that?)

Lenka The Show

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle

Life is a maze and love is a riddle

I don’t know where to go I can’t do it alone I’ve tried

And I don’t know why

Slow it down

Make it stop

Or else my heart is going to pop

‘Cause it’s too much

Yeah, it’s a lot

To be something I’m not

I’m a fool

Out of love

‘Cause I just can’t get enough

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle

Life is a maze and love is a riddle

I don’t know where to go I can’t do it alone I’ve tried

And I don’t know why

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment

I’m so scared but I don’t show it

I can’t figure it out

It’s bringing me down I know

I’ve got to let it go

And just enjoy the show

The sun is hot

In the sky

Just like a giant spotlight

The people follow the sign

And synchronize in time

It’s a joke

Nobody knows

They’ve got a ticket to that show

Yeah

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle

Life is a maze and love is a riddle

I dont know where to go I can’t do it alone I’ve tried

And I don’t know why

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment

I’m so scared but I don’t show it

I can’t figure it out

It’s bringing me down I know

I’ve got to let it go

And just enjoy the show

Just enjoy the show

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle

Life is a maze and love is a riddle

I dont know where to go I can’t do it alone I’ve tried

And I don’t know why

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment

I’m so scared but I don’t show it

I can’t figure it out

It’s bringing me down I know

I’ve got to let it go

And just enjoy the show

dum de dum

dudum de dum

Just enjoy the show

dum de dum

Just enjoy the show

I want my money back

I want my money back

I want my money back

Just enjoy the show

Laura Marling Next Time

It feels like a long time since I was free

It feels like the right time to take that seriously

It feels like the trees are a peculiar green

It feels like the air is hung heavily

I don’t want to be the kind

Struck by fear to run and hide

I’ll do better next time

It feels like warning signs were there for us to see

It feels like they taught us ignore diligently

I feel her, I hear her weakly scream

Am I really so unkind

To turn around and close my eyes?

I’ll do better next time

I’ll do better next time

It feels like the last breath we will ever share

It feels like the last time I’ll run my fingers through you hair

I can no longer close my eyes

While the world around me dies

At the hands of folks like me

It seems they fail to see

There may never

Next time be

Nazareth Demon Alcohol

Hard times comin’ so the messenger said

Better guard your liquor like your own homestead

Took it under cover, then we took it underground

In temptation, we had another round

Governor came, ’bout eleven or twelve

Under so much pressure,’couldn’t help himself

Word got out to the national guard

Spread like a fire in a lumber yard

Saddle up boys,and call up the mission

A hundred strong in the providence hall

Pray boys for the prohibition

Damn that demon alcohol

Cavalry came, and we were tumblin’ dice

Wouldn’t let them in ‘cos they wouldn’t ask nice

Drank to the health of friends and foe

Thanks to the Lord, but he never did show

Second wind gone as the second wave came

Manned in command, in the president’s name

Kept at bay, kept knockin’ at the door

Couldn’t care less ‘cos we all wanted more

Saddle up boys and call up the mission

A hundred strong in the providence hall

Pray boys for the prohibition

Damn that demon alcohol

Dried up supplies ’till the morning sun

Never realized where it all could’ve gone

List up boys, it’s plain to see

Hell is merely sobriety

Saddle up boys and call up the mission

A hundred strong in the providence hall

Pray boys for the prohibition

Damn that demon alcohol

Saddle up boys and call up the mission

A hundred strong in the providence hall

Pray boys for the prohibition

Damn that demon alcohol

The saddle up, boys

You better pray, boys

Saddle up, boys

You better pray, boys

Damn that demon alcohol.

Jordan Smith I’ll Be Home For Christmas

I am dreaming tonight of a place I love

Even more than I usually do

And although I know it’s a long road back

I promise you

I’ll be home for Christmas

You can count on me

Please have snow and mistletoe

And presents under the tree

Christmas Eve will find me

Where the love light gleams

I’ll be home for Christmas

If only in my dreams

I’ll be home for Christmas

You can count on me

Please have snow and mistletoe

And presents under the tree

Christmas Eve will find me

Where the love light gleams

I’ll be home for Christmas

If only in my dreams

If only in my dreams

Xandria Sweet Atonement

Speak to me one last time, smile at me once more,

I cannot bear this distance, our memories galore

In lucid dreams I’m dancing, my cries echo unheard

Your soul now deaf to my every bitter word

My muted love, may you rest forever

Cradled to the sounds of this lullaby:

In our sweet atonement we slumber secretly

We’ll never comprehend that we never should have been

Oh this true love story is buried in memories

Let me crawl inside you to open your weary eyes,

Heal the wound that broke you, recover all goodbyes

My muted love, when were we raided?

Who dare leave us, jaded and torn

In our sweet atonement we slumber secretly

We’ll never comprehend that we never should have been

Oh this true love story is buried in memories

And my voice was silenced the moment we started to dream…

Sarah Close Only You

Your heartbeat bleeds on the front steps

I’m following the voice in my own head

This morning left you lying in our white bed

I don’t think this is for me anymore, I said, I said

You’re so heavy I can’t see the skies

You’re making plans and then forgetting mine

Nothing to look for now you found your treasure

And I’ve been asking myself when is this gonna get better?

I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

Still love you like before

But all we do keeps falling through

So I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

I need a little more

I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

I move outside of the lines you draw

In colours you said we weren’t meant for

And you can call me selfish for wanting more

Well it’s a voice that I can’t ignore, I said, I said

You’re so heavy I can’t see the skies

You’re making plans and then forgetting mine

Nothing to look for now you found your treasure

And I’ve been asking myself when is this gonna get better

I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

Still love you like before

But all we do keeps falling through

So I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

I need a little more

I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

All we’ve tried, yeah, still not right

Think we have to lose to grow

No more fights and wasted lies

Have to do this on my own

I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

I need a little more

I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

Still love you like before

But all we do keeps falling through

So I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

I need a little more

Than only you, than only you

Shedaisy Twist Of The Magi

I sold your Rolex

To buy that gold Versace dress

I set free your whiny French poodle

So you can get your beauty rest

[Chorus:]

And I did it all for you

I did it all (I did it all) for you

This Christmas (This Christmas)

All your dreams (all your dreams)

Will come true

I put your mother on a Greyhound (You did what?)

You’d always hoped she’d have the chance to see the world (leave our mom alone)- now she can

I torched your Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues (no, no, no, no)

So I could be your only girl – and now I am

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge:]

How can I forget

All you’ve done for me, I’ll get you yet

This is the season to give

But I can never forgive the damage that you’ve done

(Damage that you’ve done)

This must be love

I sank your bass boat (Not my bass boat, no, no, no)

So you’d have more time to spend with me

I hocked your grandma’s diamond earrings

For the down payment on my SUV

(Fully loaded, heated seats, in hunter green-is this for me?)

[Repeat Chorus]

Kate Dearaugo Famous For Leaving

I fall in love in just one day

It’s always been that way

I pull you in, spit you out

It’s what I’m about

Everytime

Here I go, on my own

Sayin’ goodbye again

[CHORUS:]

I don’t mind, bein’ alone

I don’t mind, fleein’ from home

I don’t mind, bein’ alone

Hell, baby, you shooda known..

That I’m famous for leaving

It gets harder every time

Who could know I’m famous for leaving?

But it’s different this time

Different this time

I like the way you frustrate me

It must be what I need

You have a way of pushin’ through

Whatever I throw at you

Anytime

Here I go, on my own

Sayin’ goodbye again

[CHORUS:]

I don’t mind, bein’ alone

I don’t mind, fleein’ from home

I don’t mind, bein’ alone

Hell, baby, you shooda known..

It gets harder every time

You know I’m famous for leaving

But it’s different this time

So right

You are, so right

It’s gonna be alright, alright

So right

It’s gonna be alright

Here I go, here I go

Here I go again

I don’t mind, bein’ alone

I don’t mind, fleein’ from home

I don’t mind, bein’ alone

Hell, baby, you shooda known..

That I’m famous for leaving

Heyyy..

[CHORUS:]

I don’t mind, bein’ alone

I don’t mind, fleein’ from home

I don’t mind, bein’ alone

Hell, baby, you shooda known..

That I’m famous for leaving

It gets harder every time

You know I’m famous for leaving

But it’s different this time

But it’s different this time

I don’t mind

Here I go, here I go

Here I go again

Here I go, here I go

Here I go again
