Katy Perry – Roar lyrics

[Verse 1]
I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sit quietly, agreed politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

[Pre-Chorus]
You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus:]
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar

[Verse 2]
Now I’m floatin like a butterfly
Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero

[Pre-Chorus]
You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus]
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar
Roar-or, roar-or, roar-or

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar

Chris Cornell – Reach Down lyrics

Now I caught a blessing on the wind,
I’m feeling lighter than the breath from a dove. I wanna reach down, (I wanna reach down!), and pick the crowd up. I’ve got no hands to tie behind my back,
And I’m sparking like a heart attack. Ooh, I had an angel shine my wings. Carry back in my hand,
To the Promised Land,
To the Promised Land. And you said, “Hey this is where I wanna sit and buy you a drink someday.”
Well you were goin’ to the dog shows, but you kinda lost your way. But he said, “Little man, you got no business bein’ all fustrated.”
Ooh, “You gotta rest, you gotta rest, you gotta rest…”

You gotta reach down, and pick the crowd up. I wanna reach down, and pick the crowd up. Now you said, “I got all this room and no money to decorate it.”
So you got some local customer put you in touch with the man upstairs. Ooh, I wanna rest, I wanna rest, I wanna rest… So don’t you think of me crying louder than some billion dollar baby. (Yeah, yeah.)
Love was my drug, but that’s not what I died of. Carry back in my hand,
To the Promised Land,
To the Promised Land. Carry back in my hand, (Oh yeah!)
To the Promised Land, (to the Promised Land)
To the Promised Land, (ooh yeah)
Oh! And pick the crowd up! She said, “Nothin’ but the best for the golden boy.”
She made the promise not to tell,
I had her under the spell,
Singing golden words in a broken voice. Well I had a dream the other night,
You were in a bar in the corner on a chair. Whoa… To the Promised Land. Oh, I wanna reach down, and pick the crowd up. Whew

Yeah, I wanna reach down (Oh yeah!), and pick the crowd up. I wanna reach down, and pick the crowd up. Wearin’ a long white leather coat,
Purple glasses and glitter in your hair. And now I got room to spread my wings,
And my message is of love.

Drake – Headlines lyrics

She said she miss the old drake
Girl, don’t tempt me… If they don’t get it, they will be over you
That new shit that you got is overdue
You better do what you supposed to do
I’m like “why I got to be all that?”
But still, I can’t deny the fact
That it’s true, listening to you expressing all them feelings
Soap opera rappers, all these niggas sound like all my children
And that’s who you thinking is about to come and make a killing
I guess it really is just me, myself and all my millions
You know that they have not even got it like that
You going to hype me up and make me catch your body like that
Cause I live for this, it isn’t just a hobby like that
When they get my shit and play it, I did not even got to say it
They know. They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know

[Chorus]
That the real is on the rise
Fuck them other guys, and I even gave them
A chance to decide, now that’s something they know
They know, they know, they know

[Outro]
I be yelling out: money over everything, money on my mind
Tell them I apologize, happened over time
They know Tell her I apologize
Happened over time. [Verse 1]
I might be too strung out on compliments
Overdosed on confidence
Started not to give a fuck and stop fearing the consequence
Drinking every night because we
Drink to my accomplishments
Faded way too long, I’m floating in and out of consciousness
And they saying I’m bad, I agree with that
I took my time with all this shit
I still believe in that
I had someone tell me I fell off, ooh I needed that
And that they want to see me pick it back up
Well, where’d I leave it at? I know I exaggerated things, now I got it like that
Stuff my napkin in my shirt cause I’m just mobbing like that
You know good and well that you don’t want a problem like that
You going to make someone around me catch a body like that
No, don’t do it, please don’t do it
Cause one of us goes in, and we all go through it
And Drizzy got the money, so Drizzy going to pay it
Told my brothers, I am not even got to say it
That’s just something they know
They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know

[Chorus]
That the real is on the rise
Fuck them other guys
I even gave them a chance to decide
Now, that’s something they know
They know, they know, they know

[Verse 2]
I be yelling out money over everything
Money on my mind. Then she want to ask
When it got so empty.

Anthrax – The Devil You Know lyrics

I’ve been a man of brutal means
Dealing out my business, it’s so obscene
I’m not crossed, just recognized
As the son of a bitch that pulled it right between your eyes
An unexploded ordinance
Variate the deviance
A Glasgow Kiss or a Molotov
I’m about to blow it all

Countless, broken by the horror
A heroes end is still the end
My kind won’t be seen again

Let the right one in
Ya gotta go with the devil you know
It’s a goddamn sin
Ya gotta go with the devil you know
I’m ready, ready to begin
You bastard
Let the right one in
Ya gotta go with the devil that you know

What goes around comes around
And what comes around is gonna get beat down
I don’t let anything go to waste after the cold reveal of my murder face
Another right that I made wrong
Another I don’t belong
Of all the thing I said that stick
Nothing good can ever come of this

Countless, broken by the horror
A heroes end is still the end
My kind won’t be seen again
And if ya don’t know, now you know

I’ve been a man of brutal means
Dealing out my business, it’s so obscene
I’m not crossed, just recognized
As the son of a bitch that pulled it right between your eyes
An unexploded ordinance
Variate the deviance
A Glasgow Kiss or a Molotov
I’m about to blow it all

Countless, broken by the horror
A heroes end is still the end
My kind won’t be seen again

Let the right one in
Ya gotta go with the devil you know
It’s a goddamn sin
Ya gotta go with the devil you know
I’m ready, ready to begin
You bastard
Let the right one in

Ya gotta go with the devil that you know

What goes around comes around
And what comes around is gonna get beat down
I don’t let anything go to waste after the cold reveal of my murder face
Another right that I made wrong
Another I don’t belong
Of all the thing I said that stick
Nothing good can ever come of this

Countless, broken by the horror
A heroes end is still the end
My kind won’t be seen again
And if ya don’t know, now you know

Let the right one in
Ya gotta go with the devil you know
It’s a goddamn sin
Ya gotta go with the devil you know
I’m ready, ready to begin
You bastard
Let the right one in
Ya gotta go with the devil that you know

It’s just the devil in me
There’s no hypocrisy
What you see is what you see
What you get is what you get
It’s just the devil in me
There’s no hypocrisy
What you see is what you see
What you get is what you get

Let the right one in
It’s a goddamn sin
I’m ready, ready to begin
Let the right one in

Let the right one in
Ya gotta go with the devil you know
It’s a goddamn sin
Ya gotta go with the devil you know
I’m ready, ready to begin

It’s a goddamn sin
Ya gotta go with the devil you know
I’m ready, I’m ready
You bastard
Let the right one in
Ya gotta go with the devil that you know

My Darkest Days – Without You lyrics

If I had my way I’d spend every day right by your side
And if I could stop time, believe me I’d try for you and I
And each moment you’re gone, is a moment too long in my life
So stay right here, right now

[Chorus:]
‘Cuz without you I’m a disaster (The moment you go)
And you’re my ever after (Just thought you should know)
Cuz I need to know where you’ll enter (just say you’ll stay with me)
I want you to say you’re gonna stay with me (just say you’ll stay with me)
I die every day that you’re away from me

If the world ceased to spin, you could start it again with just one smile
And if the seas turn to sand with the wave of your hand, it would rain for miles
But the thought you gone makes everything wrong in my life, so stay right here, right now

[Chorus:]
‘Cuz without you I’m a disaster (The moment you go)
And you’re my ever after (Just thought you should know)
Cuz I need to know you’ll enter (Just say you’ll stay with me)
I want you to say you’re gonna stay with me (Just say you’ll stay with me)
I die every day that you’re away from me

My heart breaks with every beat, I can’t explain what you do to me
So just say you’ll promise me, please, take me if you ever leave
But the thought you gone makes everything wrong in my life, so stay right here, right now

[Chorus:]
‘Cuz without you I’m a disaster (The moment you go)
And you’re my ever after (Just thought you should know)
Cuz I need to know you’ll enter (just say you’ll, stay with me)
I want you to say you’re gonna stay with me (just stay, oh, stay with me)
I die every day that you’re away from me

So just say you’ll promise me, please, take me if you ever leave
My heart breaks with every beat, I die every day that you’re away from me

Moriarty – Jimmy lyrics

Jimmy won’t you please come home
Where the grass is green and the buffaloes roam
Come see Jimmy your uncle Jim Your auntie Jim and your cousin Jim
Come home Jimmy ’cause you need a bath
And your grandpa Jimmy is still gone daft

Now there’s buffalo Jim and buffalo Jim
There’s Jim buffalo now didn’t you know
Jim Jim Jimmy it’s your last cigarette
And there’s buffalo piss and it’s all kind of wet
Jumbo Jimmy you’d better hold your nose
All roads lead to Rome with the buffaloes

And the Buffaloes used to say be proud of your name
The Buffaloes used to say be what you are
The Buffaloes used to say roam where you roam
The Buffaloes used to say do what you do

Hey you’ve gotta have a wash but you can’t clean your name
You’re not called Jimmy you’ll be Jimmy just the same
The keys are in a bag in a chest by the door
And one of Jimmy’s friends has taken the floor
Jimmy won’t you please come home
Where the grass is green and the buffaloes roam
Dear old Jimmy you’ve forgotten you’re young
But you can’t ignore the buffalo song

And the Buffaloes used to say be proud of your name
The Buffaloes used to say be what you are
The Buffaloes used to say roam where you roam
The Buffaloes used to say do what you do

X4 If you remember you’re unknown
Buffaloland will be your home

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Those Canaan Days lyrics

The summers were endlessly gold
The fields were a patchwork of clover
The winters were never too cold
We’d stroll down the boulevards together
And everything round us was fine
Jacob
Now the fields are dead and bare
No joie de vivre anywhere
Et maintenant we drink a bitter wine
Brothers
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go? Eh bien, raise your berets
Simeon
To those Canaan days
Brothers
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days Simeon
Do you remember the good years in Canaan? The splendor of Canaan’s cuisine
Our extravagant, elegant soires
The gayest the Bible has seen
It’s funny but since we lost Joseph
We’ve gone to the other extreme
No-one comes to dinner now
We’d only eat them anyhow
I even find I’m missing Joseph’s dreams
Brothers
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go? Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days
Simeon
Do you remember those wonderful parties? Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days
Simeon
It’s funny but since we lost Joseph
We’ve gone to the other extreme
Perhaps we all misjudged the lad
Perhaps he wasn’t quite that bad
And how we miss his entertaining dreams
Brothers
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Gethsemane lyrics

Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain
Show me theres a reason for your wanting me to die
Youre far too keen on where and how but not so hot on why
Alright Ill die! If I die what will be my reward? Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain? Then I was inspired
Now I’m sad and tired
After all I’ve tried for three years, seems like ninety
Why then am I scared to finish what I started
What you started — I didn’t start it
God thy will is hard
But you hold every card
I will drink your cup of poison,
Nail me to your cross and break me
Bleed me, beat me, kill me
Take me now
Before I change my mind…. See how I die! Id have to know Id have to know my Lord
I’d have to know, have to know my Lord
Why should I die? Just watch me, just watch me die! Id have to know Id have to know my Lord
I’d have to know I’d have to know my Lord
Id have to see Id have to see my Lord
I’d have to see I’d have to see my Lord
If I die what will be my reward? Would the things I’ve said and done matter any more? But if I die
See the saga through and do the things you ask of me
Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me, nail me to their tree
I’d wanna know I’d wanna know my God
I’d wanna see Id wanna see my God
Why I should die
Would I be more noticed than I ever was before? Why should I die? I only want to say
If there is a way
Take this cup away from me
For I don’t want to taste its poison
Feel it burn me,
I have changed
I’m not as sure
As when we started
Then, I was inspired
Now I’m sad and tired
Listen, surely I’ve exceeded expectations
I Tried for three years, seems like thirty
Could you ask as much from any other man?

Yoko Kanno – Inner Universe lyrics

Where was life when it had a meaning… Beskoneshnyj beg… Stand alone… Calling, calling, for the place of knowing
There’s more than what can be linked
Calling, calling out, never will I look away
From what life has left for me

Yearning, yearning, for what’s left of loving
S toboi ostat’sya dol’she
Calling, calling now, spirits I am calling
S oboi ostat’sya dol’she
Calling, calling, in the depth of longing
Soboj ostat’sya dol’she… ((Vocalization))

Angeli I demoni kruzhili nado mnoj
Rassekali ternii I mlechnye puti
Ne znaet schast’ya tol’ko tot
Kto ego zova ponyat ne smog

Mana du vortes, Mana du vortes
Aeria gloris, Aeria gloris
Mana du vortes, Mana du vortes
Aeria gloris, aeria gloris

I am calling, calling now
Spirits I am calling
S toboi ostatsa dol’she
Calling, calling, in the depth of longing
S toboi ostat’sya dol’she

Mana du vortes, Mana du vortes
Aeria gloris, aeria gloris
Mana du vortes, Mana du vortes
Aeria gloris, aeria gloris

Stand alone… Lyubit’… Nothing’s real anymore and… Beskoneshnyj beg… Mana du vortes, Mana du vortes
Aeria gloris, Aeria gloris
Mana du vortes, Mana du vortes
Aeria gloris, aeria gloris … Poka zhiva, ya mogu starat’sya na letu ne upast’
Ne razuchit’sya mechtat’…

Boston – Peace Of Mind lyrics

Look ahead. (yea

Now you’re climbin’ to the top of the company ladder
Hope it doesn’t take too long
Can’t cha see there’ll come a day when it won’t matter
Come a day when you’ll be gone

I understand about indecision
But I don’t care if I get behind
People livin’ in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind. Take a look ahead, take a look ahead, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah… Now everybody’s got advice they just keep on givin’
Doesn’t mean too much to me
Lot’s of people out to make-believe they’re livin’
Can’t decide who they should be. (Scholz) I understand about indecision
But I don’t care if I get behind
People livin’ in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind. Now if you’re feelin’ kinda low ’bout the dues you’ve been paying
Future’s coming much too slow
And you wanna run but somehow you just keep on stayin’
Can’t decide on which way to go
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I understand about indecision
But I don’t care if I get behind
People livin’ in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind. Whoa! Take a look ahead, take a look ahead.

Georges Brassens – Maman, Papa lyrics

Maman, maman, en faisant cette chanson
Maman, maman, je r’deviens petit garзon
Alors je suis sage en classe et pour te faire plaisir
J’obtiens les meilleures places, ton dйsir
Maman, maman, je prйfиre a mes jeux fous
Maman, maman, demeurer sur tes genoux
Et sans un mot dire, entendre tes refrains charmants
Maman, maman, maman, maman

Papa, papa, en faisant cette chanson
Papa, papa, je r’deviens petit garзon
Et je t’entends sous l’orage user tout ton humour
Pour redonner du courage a nos cњurs lourds
Papa, papa, il n’y eut pas entre nous
Papa, papa, de tendresse ou de mots doux
Pourtant on s’aimait, bien qu’on ne se l’avouвt pas
Papa, papa, papa, papa

Maman, papa, en faisant cette chanson
Maman, papa, je r’deviens petit garзon
Et, grвce a cet artifice, soudain je comprends
Le prix de vos sacrifices, mes parents
Maman, papa, toujours je regretterai
Maman, papa, de vous avoir fait pleurer
Au temps oщ nos cњurs ne se comprenaient encor pas
Maman, papa, maman, papa.

Reunion – Life Is A Rock lyrics

B. Bumble and the Stingers, Mott the Hoople, Ray Charles Singers
Lonnie Mack and twangin’ Eddy, here’s my ring we’re goin’ steady
Take it easy, take me higher, liar liar, house on fire
Locomotion, Poco, Passion, Deeper Purple, Satisfaction

Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
Gotta turn it up louder, so my dj told me (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
At the end of my rainbow lies a golden oldie

Fm, am, hits are clickin’ while the clock is tock-a-tickin’
Friends and Romans, salutations, Brenda and the Tabulations
Carly Simon, I behold her, Rolling Stones and centerfoldin’
Johnny Cash and Johnny Rivers, can’t stop now, I got the shivers
Mungo Jerry, Peter Peter Paul and Paul and Mary Mary
Dr. John the nightly tripper, Doris Day and Jack the Ripper
Gotta go Sir, gotta swelter, Leon Russell, Gimme Shelter
Miracles in smokey places, slide guitars and Fender basses
Mushroom omelet, Bonnie Bramlett, Wilson Pickett, stop and kick it

Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
Gotta turn it up louder, so my dj told me (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
At the end of my rainbow lies a golden oldie

Arthur Janov’s primal screamin’, Hawkins, Jay and
Dale and Ronnie, Kukla, Fran and Norma Okla
Denver, John and Osmond, Donny
Jj Cale and zz Top and ll Bean and De De Dinah
David Bowie, Steely Dan and sing me prouder, cc Rider
Edgar Winter, Joanie Sommers, Osmond Brothers, Johnny Thunders
Eric Clapton, pedal wah-wah, Stephen Foster, do-dah do-dah
Good Vibrations, Help Me Rhonda, Surfer Girl and Little Honda
Tighter, tighter, honey, honey, sugar, sugar, yummy, yummy
Cbs and Warner Brothers, rca and all the others

Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
Gotta turn it up louder, so my dj told me (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
At the end of my rainbow lies a golden oldie

Spoken:
Listen–remember, they’re playing our song! Rock it, sock it, Alan Freed me, Murray Kaufman, try to leave me
Fish, and Swim, and Boston Monkey,
Make it bad and play it funky. (Wanna take you higher!) B.

Aled Jones – Walking In The Air lyrics

[Verse 1]
We’re walking in the air
We’re floating in the moonlight sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly

[Verse 2]
I’m holding very tight
I’m riding in the midnight blue
I’m finding I can fly so high above with you

[Verse 3]
Far across the world
The villages go by like dreams
The rivers and the hills, the forests and the streams

[Chorus]
Children gaze open mouthed
Taken by surprise
Nobody down below believes their eyes

[Verse 4]
We’re surfing in the air
We’re swimming in the frozen sky
We’re drifting over icy mountains floating by

[Chorus]
Suddenly swooping low
On an ocean deep
Rousing up a mighty monster from his sleep

[Verse 5]
We’re walking in the air
We’re dancing in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly

[Outro]
We’re walking in the air
We’re walking in the air

Peter Hammill – This Side Of The Looking Glass lyrics

I let you slip away so soon. We all make our futures
But I have lost mine;
I’m hoping for a miracle
But finding no sign… These words are not enough to save my soul,
They just mock me from the mirror.. No friendship no comfort no future no home,
The past lingers with me:
You’re all the love I’ve ever known
Without you I’m nothing
But empty and silent,
Reflecting on all that I’ve lost. Can you hear me? I’m cold and I’m yearning,
I’ve told you I’m burning,
My eyes can’t stand the light… I’m lost, I’m dumb, I’m blind,
I am drunk with sadness,
Sunk by madness –
The wave overwhelms me,
The mirror repels me,
The echo of your laugh
Drifts through the looking-glass
And I am alone. The stars in the heavens still shine
Up above me: how lovely they’d seem
If you were with me
But you’re gone through the looking-glass
And I am left to pass these nights alone. This is my song
I am dying; you are gone. Without you they mean nothing at all The stars in their constellations,
Each one sadly flickers and falls… Like a stray dog in the night
I’ll shuffle off alone.

Bootsy Collins – Love Song lyrics

Love song
One that we can dance to
One we’ll romance to
This is a love song
One that we can dance to
One that we’ll romance to
Inspired by the look in your eyes
I roam to see the melody
Yeah baby, to the tune of a love that I knew
Should come between you and me
To the rhythm of the way you walk and the way you talk
My heart just skips a beat (to the rhythm, to, to the rhythm)
I love seein’ them crescendo into full-fledge harmonies
And we’re singin’
And we’re singin’
Love song
One that we can dance to
One we’ll romance to
This is a love song
One that we can dance to
One that we’ll romance to
Girl I’m crazy about you
I get so excited, I can hardly think
You see there’s one thing about you girl
Ah, that keeps my heart turnin’
Turnin’, turnin’ girl
To the rhythm of the way you walk
And the way you talk
I can’t believe the way I feel about you Girl I’m not complaining It’s
About this feeling that I’m ridin’
I feel so good that words can’t explain So fascinating n’ exciting
I just want the world to know
You are the music that I sing
Love song, ooh yeah, yeah, yeah
Love song
L-O-V-E
L-O-V-E
Love
I want cha, I got to have you yeah
Love song
Listen girl, baby
Love song
I love you, I need you
In this love song, yeah
Love song
Got to have your love yeah, baby
This is a love song…
