Gallant – TOOGOODTOBETRUE Lyrics

Make a little circle right before you fall apart
Too good to be true
I lay down with cautions like the way you fold your arms
Too good to be true
Take a little piece of this before you fall apart
[Verse 2: Sufjan Stevens]
And now you’re shaken from something
Here come the assumptions
You say you’ve got skin on the table
But you’re not afraid of
Friends that you no longer reply to
You give an [?]
Then lay down in deep constellation
Hope you can make it
[Chorus: Gallant]
Too good to be true
Take a little piece of this until the winter start
Is it true? [Chorus: Gallant]
Take a little piece of this until the winter start
Make a little circle right before you fall apart
I lay down with caution like the way you fold your arms
Take a little piece of this before you fall apart
[Verse 1: Gallant]
We’ve been wrestling something, reckless assumptions
Lately you’ve been skipping the parties, loving nobody
You say you’re not distant for nothing, just wanna feel something
But this all this [?] time with loving, if you want private
[Chorus: Gallant]
Is it true? Make a little circle right before you fall apart
Too good to be true
I lay down with cautions like the way you fold your arms
Too good to be true
Take a little piece of this before you fall apart
[Outro: Rebecca Sugar]
Oh-oh-oh-ooh, oh-oh-oh-ooh
Oh-oh-oh-ooh, oh-oh-oh-ooh
Oh-oh-oh-ooh, oh-oh-oh-ooh
Oh-oh-oh-ooh, oh-oh-oh-ooh
Oh-oh-oh-ooh, oh-oh-oh-ooh Take a little piece of this until the winter start
Is it true?

Jeremy Zucker – ​thinking 2 much Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I was unimportant
You were just a friend
No one even noticed
We were just pretend
[Chorus]
But oh god, this sucks
Always, you’re thinking too much
Baby, slow down, realize
There’s more here for you
[Verse 2]
I was on the border
You were choosing sides
Kiss me in the morning
Miss me in the night
[Chorus]
But oh god, we suck
Always, we’re thinking too much
Baby, slow down, realize
There’s more here for you
You’re thinking too much, baby
You’re thinking too much, baby
Slow down, take time
You’re alway thinking too much, baby
Slow down, realize, yeah realize, yeah
[Bridge]
All light is fading
But you look amazing
And my mind is racing
We’re all losing patience
I might as well fake it
Since acting’s your favorite
Thought this was vacation
I won’t keep you waiting
[Verse 3 – EDEN & Jeremy Zucker]
You run a forest as the sunrise
Cutting down, come down
Two down in one try
Wanna go before it burns out
(And my mind is racing) Past blows, but it’s sun drench
Past turns in the summer bent
(We’re all losing patience) Seems less when you know better
Better off for it
(I might as well fake it) Star skies like a road map
The second I thought, not sure of it
(Since acting’s your favorite) At some point it’ll come back
Just don’t wait for it
(Thought this was vacation) At some point it’ll come back
Just don’t wait for it (I won’t keep you waiting)
[Outro]
Won’t keep you waiting no more (what’re you doing)
You’re thinking too much, baby

Back at it, I’m so back at it

Hand me the crown, I wear this shit now, ayy
[Bridge: A]
Plastic, y’all so plastic
And the last thing
I want is you to claim what I gave
(You won’t claim what I gave)
Passive, I was so passive
But now I’m blastin’
Through anything you place in my way
(Better get out my way)
[Hook: A]
Back at it, I’m so back at it

Back at it, I’m so back at it
All those lames will never blur my lane again
Pathetic, yo, was pathetic
No more shame, no, I feel like the man again

AJR – Role Models Lyrics

Look at this mess, wake up Mr. [Intro]
3, 4
[Chorus]
All my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
And, I will unravel if you rip away my best pieces
Would’ve never come so far, without someone there to start again
I truly love the art, when I kinda hate the artist
But, All my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
Wrong reasons
[Verse 1]
This time of year, I’m feelin’ weird, might be allergies
Wanna move out, but when I move out, who’ll be proud of me
Thought I was made, from [?], put that crown on me
Thought I was made, from Louis C.K
[Chorus]
But, all my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
(Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
And, I will unravel if you rip away my best pieces
(Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
Would’ve never come so far, without someone there to start again
I truly love the art, when I kinda hate the artist
But, All my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
(Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
Wrong reasons
[Verse 2]
I used to say, just what’s on my brain, cause you always did
You used to be, so special to me, now you’ve taken it
Look at this mess, should I forget, what you gave to me? West
[Chorus]
Cause, all my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
(Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
And, I will unravel if you rip away my best pieces
(Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
Would’ve never come so far, without someone there to start again
I truly love the art, when I kinda hate the artist
But, All my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
(Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
Wrong reasons
Would’ve never come so far, without someone there to start again
I truly love the art, when I kinda hate the artist
But, All my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
(Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
Wrong reasons

Kesha – Here Comes The Change lyrics

One day I’ll be gone
The world will keep turning
I hope I leave this place
Better than I found it
Oh it’s hard, I know it’s hard
To be the lightning in the dark
Hold on tight you’ll be alright
You know it’s time
Here comes the change
We’re comin’ of age
This is not a phase
Here comes, here comes, the change
Is it a crazy thought? That if I had a child
I hope they live to see the day
That everyone’s equal
Oh it’s hard I know it’s hard
To be the right inside the wrong
Hold on tight we’ll be alright
You know it’s time
Oh here comes the change
Oh we’re comin’ of age
This is not a phase
Here comes here comes the change
Hope there’ll come a time when we
Where we can live in and die free
I hope and pray
There’ll come the day
And it’s comin’ soon
Oh here comes a change
We’re comin’ of age
This is not a phase
Here comes, here comes, the change
Oh here comes the change
We’re comin’ of age
This is not a phase
Here comes, here comes, the change
It’s time to change
We are the change
Oh here comes the change

Johnny Orlando – To Last Summer… Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Thinking ’bout the things that you said to me last summer
Thinking ’bout the memories, last summer
Last summer
All I’m trying to do, is to get a little rewind
Go back to the first time
I look to my girl’s eyes
Saw her wayside, chilling in a Levi’s
Love at first sight, blessing in a disguise
[Pre-Chorus]
Remembering how she made me feel
That kind of love instantly, so real
I just wanna go back to last summer
Last summer, Last summer, Last summer
[Chorus]
If I could I’d never leave
I’m still burning in the heat
Of you and me and last summer
Last summer
If I could I’d hit repeat
I would build a time machine
Take me back to last summer
Last summer, last summer
[Verse 2]
I wonder if she ever got my letters
We got a story for the masses
The kind of love that’ll never turn to ashes
It’s drastic, summertime classic
Staring up at the moon in June
Mesmerized by her in July
Wish we didn’t have to end so soon
What a bummer, last summer
Last summer
[Chorus]
If I could I’d never leave
I’m still burning in the heat
Of you and me and last summer
Last summer
If I could I’d hit repeat
I would build a time machine
Take me back to last summer
Last summer, last summer
[Pre-Chorus]
Remembering how she made me feel
That kind of love instantly, so real
I just wanna go back to last summer
Last summer, last summer
[Chorus]
If I could I’d never leave
I’m still burning in the heat
Of you and me and last summer
Last summer
If I could I’d hit repeat
I would build a time machine
Take me back to last summer
Last summer, last summer
[Outro]
Take me back, take me back
Last summer
Take me back, take me back
Take me back to last summer
Last Summer
Last Summer

Moneybagg Yo – Pyscho Mode Lyrics

[Intro]
Aye, I’m in pyscho mode(pyscho mode)
Uh, I’m a crazy head
Yeah, hey
[Chorus]
Stop actin’ gangster on the gram(stop)
My street credit authentic caps lock, yours spam(paper)
Full of lean at interscope wit’ ruffles in my hand(high)
2 rings, 80 bands, drippin’ Gucci, dapper Dan
Got me fly like a kite(like a kite), like a kite(like a kite), like a kite(kite), took off outta sight(pew, pew)
I can see the light, white
Houses just like heaven
Garage in my master bedroom
And the Wraith got Delta legroom(skrt)
[Verse]
I don’t [?] wit’ niggas at all like some white folks(you crazy)
I’m a pyscho, iced out, money Michael
You’re pockets Lipo, he hurtin’ get a medic pillow
Pillow talkin’, that’s pathetic
Might get dry fit, I ain’t sweatin’ it
Pay my ties wit’ the fifties, wipe my ass wit’ the hundreds
First she love then she dump me, wishy washy like the laundry
Shootin’ dice like it’s Jumanji, in the jungle with the monkeys
Grip her head, I’m hella scrunchy, eat me up, she got the munchies
Then you tweet about one bitch
And then your other hoes got mad at you(yeah)
Copy and paste in the same text, like where the [?] you goin’ to?(ha)
It’s the same nigga sendin’ shots(it’s twice), he and 2
I had [?] his wife and on his birthday, think he know it too(damn)
Bank account, three commas(a trey baby), that’s no typo
Gangster grill, DJ Drama(sheesh), my teeth a light show
Told them niggas get from ’round me, that’s a iso
I can’t let ’em cross me up(what’s that called?)
That’s a ivo(I’m ballin’ tho’)
[Chorus]
Stop actin’ gangster on the gram(stop)
My street credit authentic caps lock, yours spam(paper)
Full of lean at interscope wit’ ruffles in my hand(high)
2 rings, 80 bands, drippin’ Gucci, dapper Dan
Got me fly like a kite(like a kite), like a kite(like a kite), like a kite(kite), took off outta sight(pew, pew)
I can see the light, white
Houses just like heaven
Garage in my master bedroom
And the Wraith got Delta legroom(skrt)
[Outro]
I’ma pyschom I-I’ma pyscho, I’m-I’m-I’ma pyscho
Iced out, money Michael

Soulja Boy – Front Door Back Door Lyrics

[Verse]
Young Draco nigga, you know I’m real nigga
I slide in that Bentley, they think I’m drug dealer
Jump out the top and my young nigga flip the switch
Quarter million in one day just to be specific
Fuck with Draco nigga I empty the clip
Had to go run it up, trappin’ through the 6
Hop out the Rari, I look like the man
Round 250,000 on my Instagram
Look at it bitch, she staring, she my biggest fan
Whippin’ my wrist in the pot like a ceiling fan
Who is him? I ain’t ever heard of him
Make the wrong move then you know Draco’s shoota gon murder him
Hop in the Lamborghini then I swerve on ’em
Junkie hit my front door, know what I’m servin’ him
Front door back door, with the draco
Front door back door, front door back door
Trappin’ a nigga runnin’ up them pesos
Call up my plug he gon pull up with a whole case load
Stackin’ up M&M’s just like they Lego’s
Call up my shooters, they shoot when I say so
Fuck with Lil Soulja, I’m sprayin’ with the draco
Servin’ the junkies, run up a bankroll
Ballin’ on niggas, I sprained my ankle
Ran up them M’s, nigga I got pesos
Fuck with the gang and we shootin’ shit up
Fuck on yo bitch, you know what’s up
I do a show, I’m on a tour bus
I’m in LA, now I’m up in New York
Fifty thousand in one day, that’s just Soulja
Young nigga puttin’ them bricks in a Rover
VVS diamonds, they come out the water
Young Draco nigga, I’m fuckin’ yo daughter
Young Draco nigga, Ferrari the sport
Young Draco nigga trappin fuck nigga, come place yo order
Titanic my chain, put it in the water
VVS Audemars look like some coke
Young Draco pull up shootin’ shit at that Madi Gras
I take a brick, ship it to Panama
100 bricks, put it in my momma house
Whip out that draco like what they talkin’ bout?

Imagine Dragons – Zero Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I find it hard to say the things I want to say the most
Find a little bit of steady as I get close
Find a balance in the middle of the chaos
Send me low, send me high, send me never demigod
I remember walking in the cold of November
Hoping that I make it to the end of December
27 years and the end of my mind
But holding to the thought of another time
But looking to the ways at the ones before me
Looking for the path of the young and lonely
I don’t want to hear about what to do
I don’t want to do it just to do it for you
[Chorus]
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to always feel, feel
Like I’m empty and there’s nothing really real
I’m looking for a way out
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to never feel, feel
Like I’m good enough for anything that’s real, real
I’m looking for a way out
[Verse 2]
I find it hard to tell you how I want to run away
I understand it always makes you feel a certain way
I find a balance in the middle of the chaos
Send me up, send me down, send me never demigod
I remember walkin’ in the heat of the summer
Wide-eyed one with a mind full of wonder
27 years and I’ve nothing to show
Falling from the doves to the dark of the crow
Looking to the ways of the ones before me
Looking for the path of the young and lonely
I don’t want to hear about what to do, no
I don’t want to do it just to do it for you
[Chorus]
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to always feel, feel
Like I’m empty and there’s nothing really real, real
I’m looking for a way out
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to never feel, feel
Like I’m good enough for anything that’s real, real
I’m looking for a way out
[Bridge]
Let me tell you ’bout it, well let me tell you ’bout it
Maybe you’re the same as me
Let me tell you ’bout it, well let me tell you ’bout it
They say the truth will set you free
[Chorus]
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to always feel, feel
Like I’m empty and there’s nothing really real, real
I’m looking for a way out
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to never feel, feel
Like I’m good enough for anything that’s real, real
I’m looking for a way out

“Strawberry supplies aren’t the problem, but we will need to have some conversations to get the ice-cream organised.”Agriculture Minister Mark Furner said the State Government would support the idea and offered the parliamentary kitchens for preparation.”This is a great way to assist our strawberry growers,” he said.

“Copycat examples [of sabotage] continue to damage the industry, and it makes me sick to the stomach that one of my grandchildren could be the victim of a fool that’s out there.”If we can get behind our strawberry industry and support them — purchase the punnets, slice them and dice them.”The Minister also noted that he would be happy to offer his services to scoop ice-cream.”Back in my day as a young fellow I was scooping ice-cream at an old milk bar at Chermside, raising pocket money — I’ll be right in there in the thick of it.”Volunteers neededBill McDonald, an ambassador for the hospital foundation, said they had been inundated with offers from people keen to help.”It’s a win-win as we’re going to buy the strawberries from the farmers,” he said.”It gives people confidence that they can eat strawberries again.”It is hoped the sundaes will be on sale at pop-up stalls early next week in the Brisbane CBD. The famous Ekka strawberry sundae is about to be made outside of showtime for the first time in a bid to help farmers rocked by the needle contamination scare.More than 100,000 of the sundaes are made every year at the Ekka by the Prince Charles Hospital Foundation, with all monies raised going to medical research.Foundation chief executive Michael Hornby told ABC Radio Brisbane Breakfast that his team would use surplus strawberries and sell the desserts at pop-up stalls in Brisbane’s CBD.”The farmers and the strawberry industry absolutely deserve the chance,” he said.”We will have to turn to our partners and the Ekka for help and promotion, and we would need a lot of volunteers to help out.”

During the Ekka more than 3,000 volunteers are needed to make the sundaes.”We’ve been with the Ekka for 29 years and we coordinate it each year, but we can make this happen,” Mr Hornby said.”This is a strong message to the consumers not only in Brisbane but across Australia as it’s a national dilemma, so let’s fix it.”Recipe under lock and keyEkka (RNA) chief executive Brendan Christou was also supportive and said he would allow the licensed recipe to be used for the cause.”We’ve never done it outside of Ekka time, so this would be a first but it’s such an important thing to do,” he said.”The ice-cream and the recipe are a special blend that is only made at the Ekka by Lick Ice-Cream.

Now, City of Karratha Mayor Peter Long and council rangers work in collaboration with SAFE for the betterment of animals, by preventing them from roaming the streets or being kept in cages.Ms Hedley said carers can be located anywhere for SAFE to try to find a foster home, and sometimes a new permanent home, in the digital age.”I’ve saved animals over the years from all sorts of places. They don’t have to be in a specific location,” she said.”Animals can stay in their area in foster homes and we can advertise them online.”If I get a call about an animal in trouble I’m not going to say ‘oh, it’s too hard’.

People from the Lort Smith Hospital in Victoria, AWL Queensland, AWL NSW, Dogs Homes of Tasmania, SAFE in WA and AWL SA met with workers, volunteers and carers.Richard Mussell, president of Animal Welfare League Australia, said that SAFE WA had been highly influential in educating welfare centres across Australia about the foster care model.”It’s difficult for local government to manage dogs and cats,” Mr Mussell said.”Quite often they don’t have a bricks and mortar facility and they often don’t have an RSPCA or an AWL in that area.”Working with volunteer groups — and a foster model where you’re spreading the care across many people — is a perfect way of trying to address that.”His facility in Adelaide alone has seen the numbers of foster carers, in the homes of South Australians, double since they adopted the SAFE model.Support in remote and regional areasMs Hedley has been dedicating her life to the cause of re-homing animals since 2003 when she founded SAFE after finding dogs roaming the streets of towns across   the Pilbara.

More than 23,000 animals have been re-homed by SAFE and well over 70 per cent have gone to other parts of Australia with a very low return rate of animals, even though Ms Hedley does take animals back if it does not work out.”With enough footage, Skype and honest carers, you can get enough of a feel for an animal,” Ms Hedley said.”It can be a dog in Broome and a new owner in Albany, it opens up a whole new world.”People are matched with dogs or cats that suit their needs, and after lengthy discussions between SAFE volunteers, foster carers, and the prospective new owners, animals are transported to new homes.Hema Mageswaran from Karratha always wanted a dog, but had no experience with pets at all.She said her fostering came with a lot of education and support from SAFE.When the new owners contacted Ms Mageswaran, they were keen to know about behaviours, sports, outdoors, temperament and her actual size before buying her.”The SAFE model in WA offers the prospective new owner the opportunity to speak to the [foster] carer and get information about the animal’s behaviour — how they might be with small children, how they might be with other animals, whether they are digging up the yard or whatever,” Mr Mussell said.When SAFE volunteers drop her at Karratha airport, Stella will fly to Perth and be collected to travel by car to her new Esperance home.Mr Mussell said it is this diversity of operations that is key to educating national members about the benefits of home-based foster care.He said he believed the ‘no bricks and mortar’ model is cost-effective and better for animals, and the community. She was working for the Australian Bureau of Statistics at the time. We fly them all over the place.”In a deal with Qantas, the animals travel on the passenger discounted rate and new owners pay approximately $500 for the costs of immunisation, de-sexing and microchipping and $150 for a flight.A real-life example of interstate travel recently came from the Tennant Creek area of the NT where the animal welfare person on the ground organised transport to Darwin, and from there the animal was advertised on local webpages and sites where carers were found.”We want extend our carer base,” Ms Hedley said.”People aren’t used to looking on a WA site for animals in the NT, so we need to work on that.”Wingellina is another remote location on the corner of WA, SA and NT where SAFE manages carers and adoption by getting animals to Alice Springs, then flies them to WA.”It’s like internet dating,” Ms Hedley said.”You make educated decisions for animals, as well as people.”I don’t want to offend people who have shelters, it’s not a condemnation of what was done before, but with technology nowadays we’re in a whole new world.”Animals in aged care facilitiesIn a recent national strategy paper, Animal Welfare League Australia advocated to help recognise aged care facilities that allow pets in an attempt to reduce numbers of abandoned animals by the elderly.Even though laws on pets are state-based, the issue is common across the whole of Australia, so aged care bodies are keen to work with AWL on creating a successful model that works.”One of the top five reasons why people will surrender a pet to an organisation like SAFE or AWL is because they’re moving into a facility where they don’t allow pets,” Mr Mussell said.”There’s masses of research to show that the human animal bond is very special, in particular as people are getting older.”The companionship of having an animal, even just giving people exercise or a reason to look after an animal, is positive for their wellbeing.”There’s an amazing aged care facility in Tamworth where they have all sorts of farm animals, rabbits and cattle dogs.”This facility had a program for their dementia residents with the rabbits and the effects have been phenomenal.”Matching people with pets

SAFE’s Sue Hedley says remote locations are no barrier in fostering-out animals. A Karratha woman is sharing her life mission with other welfare agencies to see that no healthy, re-homable animal is euthanased, and to get all abandoned pets out of cages.Sue Hedley and her team at Saving Animals From Euthanasia (SAFE) has inspired animal welfare groups across the country to reassess their business models.”To really do that completely you need a lot of behavioural support and a lot of people available for that,” she said.A visiting delegation of 12 people from Animal Welfare League Australia this week saw the evidence needed to inspire them to increase the numbers of volunteer, in-home foster carers of companion animals, in conjunction with their shelters.
