The Vamps – My Place Lyrics

[Chorus: Brad Simpson]
Let’s go back to my place
Look at that face, I don’t ever wanna let you down
Let’s love mistakes and heartbreaks
I never wanna see you frown
It’s not so far away, who cares if they say? We were stuck in a little town
I can tell by the look, it’s written on your face
Let’s go back to my place
[Bridge: Brad Simpson]
Rollercoasters, baby take a ride
Looking for another a chance to change your mind
We don’t have to go too far tonight
Just back to my place
Look at that face, I don’t ever wanna let you down
Let’s love by mistakes and heartbreaks
But baby where we headed now? We were stuck in a little town
I can tell by the look, that’s written on your face
Let’s go back to my place
[Verse 2]
Coffee stains, on my pillowcase
And the way you smile, when the neighbors complain
Why’d you play your cards close to your chest? Inside my head, an empty space
Tried every way to clear my brain
It’s an attitude I can’t escape
[Pre-Chorus: Brad Simpson]
‘Cause for a while it goes when I breathe in
Stays for a minute disappears when you touch my skin, oh
I don’t wanna go
[Chorus: Brad Simpson]
Let’s go back to my place
Look at that face, I don’t ever wanna let you down
Let’s love by mistakes and heartbreaks
I never wanna see you frown
It’s not so far away, who cares if they say? We were stuck in a little town
I can tell by the look, it’s written on your face
Let’s go back to my place
[Chorus: Brad Simpson]
Let’s go back to my place
Look at that face, I don’t ever wanna let you down
Let’s love by mistakes and heartbreaks
I never wanna see you frown
It’s not so far away, who cares if they say? [Verse 1: Brad Simpson]
Should I stay, another day? We were stuck in a little town
I can tell by the look, it’s written on your face
Let’s go back to my place Wasting time when we could waste our breath
Speaking ’bout how we’d change the world from my bedroom
[Pre-Chorus: Brad Simpson]
‘Cause for a while it comes when I breathe in
Stays for a minute disappears when you touch my skin, oh
Baby say you’re home
[Chorus: Brad Simpson]
Let’s go back to my place
Look at that face, I don’t ever wanna let you down
Let’s love by mistakes and heartbreaks
I never wanna see you frown
It’s not so far away, who cares if they say?

Oh Wonder – Solo Lyrics

[Chorus: Both]
I need to be solo
Freedom in the mono
Find a space and let go
I need to be solo, solo
Now I’m breathing in and I’m breathing out
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
I’m breathing in and I’m breathing out
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
[Verse 3: Both]
Their mouths are dripping dryer as their souls are slipping higher
It’s like treading on a wire laced with kerosene and fire
The night will soon expire as their bodies soon retire
Limbs entangled in kaleidoscopes of prima donna choirs
Ahh, ahh, ahh, ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh
[Chorus: Both]
I need to be solo
Freedom in the mono
Find a space and let go
I need to be solo, solo
Now I’m breathing in and I’m breathing out
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
I’m breathing in and I’m breathing out
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
[Outro: Both]
I need to be solo
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
Freedom in the lie low
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
Find a space and let go
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
I need to be solo, solo
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
I need to be solo
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
Freedom in the lie low
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
Find a space and let go
Breathing in and I’m breathing out
I need to be solo, solo
Breathing in and I’m breathing out [Verse 1: Both & Josephine]
A room filled up with faces and the air so thick I taste it
Locking lips like they all wasted, tangled hips like it’s a spaceship
Heavy heads are racing down the hallways to the basement
Where the darkness fills the space and they can feel themselves erasing
Can you feel yourself erasing? They’re bursting at the corners as the ceiling’s getting shorter
And I’m stuck between a talker and a VHS recorder
The heat seeps through the border as our ice melts down to water
Can you feel it getting smaller?

Olivia O’Brien – RIP Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You don’t make time like you used to
Got a new girl, new friends, brand new
I swear it’s like I don’t even know you
Yeah, I miss the old you
I kinda want to fight like we used to
To make it alright like we used to
Anything, ’cause I didn’t want to lose you
But this time we’ve gone too far
We’ve gone too far
[Pre-Chorus]
This new you, this new dude
Don’t know him, don’t want to
I wish that I still knew the old him, the old you
[Chorus]
R-I-P to the old you
I miss the old you
It’s like you’re dead to me now
R-I-P to the old you
I fucking miss you
I would have never let you down like you did to me
Now you’re dead to me
R-I-P
[Verse 2]
You’re acting like the people that we hated
You’re hanging with the worst and I hate it
All you do now is get too faded
You think you’re the shit now
Now everything is too complicated
You can try, but there’s no way to save it
Because you’re too caught up in that fake shit
I wish that we could just restart, just restart
[Pre-Chorus]
This new you, this new dude
Don’t know him, don’t want to
I wish that I still knew the old him, the old you
[Chorus]
R-I-P to the old you
I miss the old you
It’s like you’re dead to me now
R-I-P to the old you
I fucking miss you
I would have never let you down like you did to me
Now you’re dead to me
R-I-P
R-I-P to the old you
I fucking miss you
It’s like you’re six feet in the ground
[Bridge]
One day you gon’ miss me
You’ll come running back and you’ll hit me up
But I won’t answer that shit, nah, I won’t answer that shit, nah
One day I won’t miss you
When I’m drunk and sad I won’t hit you up
Because I’ll be over that shit yeah, I’ll be over that shit yeah
[Chorus]
R-I-P to the old you (R-I-P to you)
I miss the old you (I miss you)
It’s like you’re dead to me now (dead to me)
R-I-P to the old you (R-I-P)
I fucking miss you (I miss you)
I would have never let you down (never let you down)
Like you did to me (like you did to me)
Now you’re dead to me (dead to me now)
R-I-P
R-I-P to the old you (R-I-P)
I fucking miss you (I miss you)
It’s like you’re six feet in the ground

Fuck around and set the bitch off like Queen Latifah
Hold on, hold on, yeah, going all out ’bout my dog like Scooby-ee
And a nigga trap door swinging like Bizzy B, woah
Outdated temporary tag on a Bentley B (Bentley B)
Two tone wire bag, double R, park it on the streets, yeah, hold on
Two tone wire bag, big tires tear up the streets, rwar
Looking at your kid, I might be the papi (sheesh)
65 pointers in the Cuban sheesh (damn, woah, sheesh)
Diamonds on the backside tearing up my skin, sheesh
Uh, your old man tryna do it like me, sheesh
[Chorus: Chance The Rapper]
Please, please
Treat me like you know who I am

[Verse 2: Chance The Rapper]
I got money on my card
Put some money on they books, that’s a yard
I declare war on the beast for my God, sheesh
Gross 3 mil off the new hat
If I could go back, I make the two cap
Love me in my city like Cusack
Get a little beat and I’ll loop that
Get a little money, I’ll oop that
Split it with my niggas in the group chat
Left for a minute then I flew back
Had to ask Bruce “where the truth at?”
Had to ask Rahm “where the truth at?”
Now I can’t ride with the roof back
Tell ’em I don’t play around with other people’s kids
Got an office in the steakhouse
Gotta bid for the ribs
Got a meeting at the Ritz
Gave a trip to my rib
‘Cause she leaving where I live but I see her in a min
Got a Michael prayer card for the good luck, ay
Bra push up when I pull up, ay
Got a little money from the tour, yeah
Spend it all on baby pull ups, ay
Big old Bentley, bitch I mix the Henny with the Simply
Lemonade exterior, Lorenzos under Bentleys
Put you in the friend zone if you start acting too friendly
Bought a baby Benzo and some Kenzo just for Kensli
Wake up real early but I eat late
Go and hit the streets with that brief case
Time to shake down another cheap skate
You could tell he’s lying, cheesecake
[Verse 3: Young Thug]
Make a nigga bitch tap out
Then put you in the fours with a real big body
Bitch said nigga need to stop got 100 racks on me
Can’t fit in my pocket
I’m a street nigga, I’ma eat me some soup, I’ma let my bitch eat pasta
Told y’all niggas ain’t stopping
Black card in my wallet, I’ma feed my partner
I was at one of my shows feeling like Cam’ron with the pink Margielas
We was tryna beat a murder capital, riding around the town with the pink Beretta
When I got in touch with the money, me and shawty fucked around and filled my schedule
Momma just sent me a picture got Indian in my family through my God damn nana
Young nigga fucked ’round, dropped out school, learned it all through the ID channel
Young nigga fucked around and ran out of bullets in the .40, got to get a banana
These young niggas go brazy, done got that money, they still might pop
So many blue faces on me right now, young nigga still gamble
35 racks for the factories, I steal mammals
I ain’t no rapper nigga, I teach ya
I’m a big dog, no pedigree, I eat racks
Boomerang your bitch sweet, she coming back
[Chorus: Chance The Rapper]
Please, please
Treat me like you know who I am
Please, please
Bitch I know who I am, uh

Travis Scott – Butterfly Effect

[Intro]
Murda on the beat so it’s not nice

For this life, I cannot change
Hidden Hills, deep off in the main
M&M’s, sweet like candy cane
Drop the top, pop it, let it bang (pop it, pop it)

All the dogs, all the dogs low creep right behind me in the Phantom
Never go, never go dip on this estates Santana
Yeah, run it back, turn the lights on when I hit up Green Lantern
Yeah, fly the broads, fly the dogs down to Atlanta
Yeah, in the cut in Medusa, lay low I might be

All That Remains – The Greatest Generation Lyrics

ALL THAT REMAINSThe Greatest Generation Lyrics
If you’ve been wondering
Just what is made of [?]
A generation unsolved
My father’ father
May God rest his soul
He told me something you should know
You put your shoulder to the wind
I want the reverse
A generation I want
I want one of the greatest, tell me this
At night we fade away
You know I want one to believe us
To leave us
Remember what made us great
Remember what made us great
They talking shitty things
To all the wonders that you see
They did it all to us
You put your shoulder to the wind
You shake your fingers to the bone
I want the reverse
A generation I want
I want one of the greatest, tell me this
At night we fade away
You know I want one to believe us
To leave us
I am forever grateful
I am forever grateful
I’ll make it great this way
Remember what made us great
Remember what made us great
Instrumental
Remember what made us great
Remember what made us great
I want a generation
I want to believe us
To leave us
I want a generation
I want to believe us
To leave us
Remember what made us great
Remember what made us great

Arlo Guthrie – When A Soldier Makes It Home Lyrics

ARLO GUTHRIEWhen A Soldier Makes It Home Lyrics
words and music by Arlo Guthrie
Halfway around the world tonight
In a strange and foreign land
A soldier packs his memories
As he leaves Afghanistan
And back home they don’t know too much
There’s just no way to tell
I guess you had to be there
For to know that war was hell
Chorus:
And there won’t be any victory parades
For those that’s coming back
They’ll fly them in at midnight
And unload the body sacks
And the living will be walking down
A long and lonely road
Because nobody seems to care these days
When a soldier makes it home
They’ll say it wasn’t easy
Just another job well done
As the government in Kabul falls
To the sounds of rebel guns
And the faces of the comrades
Being blown out of the sky
Leaves you bitter with the feeling
That they didn’t have to die
Chorus
Halfway around the world tonight
In a strange and foreign land
A soldier unpacks memories
That he saved from Vietnam
Back home they didn’t know too much
There was just no way to tell
I guess you had to be there
For to know that war was hell
And there wasn’t any big parades
For those that made it back
They flew them in at midnight
And unloaded all the sacks
And the living were left walking down
A long and lonely road
Because nobody seemed to care back then
When a soldier made it home
The night is coming quickly
And the stars are on their way
As I stare into the evening
Looking for the words to say
That I saw the lonely soldier
Just a boy that’s far from home
And I saw that I was just like him
While upon this earth I roam
And there may not be any big parades
If I ever make it back
As I come home under cover
Through a world that can’t keep track
Of the heroes who have fallen
Let alone the ones who won’t
Which is why nobody seems to care
When a soldier makes it home

One million stars woven to shine a light against violence

Weaving one million stars to end bullying and violence

(Drive)
Bundaberg health service uses art to help end violence
(ABC Radio Brisbane: Jessica Hinchliffe)
The project quickly expanded to more than 100 star-weaving communities across Australia and as far away as Canada, the UK and Pacific islands.Local libraries, refugee groups, country women’s associations and sporting groups have all taken part in making the stars in what the group calls star-weaving jams.The now Brisbane-based weaver is collating the one million stars for an art installation at next year’s Commonwealth Games as a global symbol for “working together and creating peaceful communities”.

“People are helping each other to learn how to weave them and many people cut up old newspapers and catalogues,” she said.”When people feel the stillness and mindfulness when they fold the four pieces of paper together, they make a statement to see an end to violence.”The Museum of Brisbane has the task of designing the concept of how the stars will come together in one place as part of the arts and culture festival for the Games.”We’re currently collecting the stars and working as a team to logistically decide how we’re going to display this large project,” museum director Renai Grace said.”We’re yet to confirm the exact location but we know we’re going to create something as spectacular as the project itself.”She said the people coming in to weave the stars at the museum had been diverse.”We have a gentleman that comes in each week and drops 2,000 stars to us … (ABC Radio Brisbane: Jessica Hinchliffe) Photo:
A small installation of the stars is hanging in the Museum of Brisbane. it’s been incredible,” Ms Grace said.”The diversity of people weaving the star has been wonderful; boyfriend and girlfriends, parents and their children, tourists and older generations.”Stars will be collected till the end of July and can be sent to the One Million Stars headquarters in Brisbane. Meet the woman who has made it her mission to encourage communities to weave more than one million stars as a symbol against violence.Artist Maryann Talia Pau started the One Million Stars to End Violence project in 2012 following the death of Jill Meagher in her local community while she lived in Melbourne.Motivated by the words of Martin Luther King’s Strength To Love, Ms Talia Pau taught residents how to weave stars as a way of rebuilding trust.”I wanted the stars to be a symbol of light and courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence, including violence against women, bullying and racism.”I’m a weaver and I know the joy weaving brings to me personally, so I came up with this idea to get everyone to weave a million.”

Currently 750,000 stars have been counted at the group’s headquarters, with dozens of cartons arriving daily filled with more.”The stories that come in with the stars showing what the stars mean to the weavers is extraordinary,” Ms Talia Pau said.”The weaving helps people talk about violence and it’s a tough conversation, so these stars help people believe in the impossible.”To humbly offer my art to my community, then to Queensland, and now the rest of the world and for people to take ownership of it is so beautiful.”
