[Verse 1]
I’m weary of the ways of the world
Be weary of the ways of the world
I’m weary of the ways of the world

[Refrain 1]
I’m gonna look for my body, yeah
I’ll be back real soon
I’m gonna look for my body, yeah
I’ll be back real soon
I’m gonna look for my body, yeah
I’ll be back real soon
[Bridge]
But you know that a king is only a man
With flesh and bones, he bleeds just like you do
He said, “Where does that leave you?”
And, “Do you belong?”
I do, I do

[Verse 2]
Be leery ’bout your place in the world
You’re feeling like you’re chasing the world
You’re leaving not a trace in the world
But you’re facing the world

[Refrain 2]
I’m gonna look for my glory, yeah
I’ll be back real soon
I’m gonna look for my glory, yeah
I’ll be back real soon
I’m gonna look for my glory, yeah
I’ll be back real soon

But you know that a king is only a man
With flesh and bones, he bleeds just like you do
He said, “Where does that leave you?”
And, “Do you belong?”
I do, I do

Woah
Oh, woah

[Verse 1]
I tried to drink it away
I tried to put one in the air
I tried to dance it away
I tried to change it with my hair

[Verse 2]
I ran my credit card bill up
Thought a new dress would make it better
I tried to work it away
But that just made me even sadder
[Verse 3]
I tried to keep myself busy
I ran around in circles
Think I made myself dizzy
I slept it away, I sexed it away
I read it away

[Refrain 1]
Away, away, away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away, away

[Hook 1]
Well it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds
Yeah, it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds

[Verse 4]
I tried to run it away
Thought then my head be feeling clearer
I traveled 70 states
Thought moving round make me feel better

[Verse 5]
I tried to let go my lover
Thought if I was alone then maybe I could recover
To write it away or cry it away
Don’t you cry baby

[Refrain 1]
Away, away, away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away, away

[Hook 2]
But it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds
Yeah, it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal…

Away, away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away, away

Comments Off on Solange – Interlude: Dad Was Mad lyrics


I was the first, one of the first. My first day, a state trooper caught me, put me in the backseat of the car, and meeting the other black kids, was six of us. And seeing all of those parents, and also KKK members having signs and throwing cans at us, spitting at us. We lived in the threat of death every day. Every day. So I was just lost in this vacuum between integration and segregation and, and racism. That was my childhood. I was angry for years… angry, very angry

[Verse 1]
I gave it all away that night, it was taking a little time, oh
I gave it all I got but now you better know that I know for sure, oh

[Refrain]
You made my bed, dealt with it when the lights went out
Now looking back for temporary nothings
But I bet on it, you’ll all be here when the lights come out
Still looking for nothing
[Pre-Chorus]
I gave it all I got to know now
I don’t want no part of it no longer, no longer
Looked around this place enough to know now
I don’t want to waste the time to know you, to know you

[Chorus]
Don’t you wait for me
Don’t you wait for me
Don’t you wait for me
Don’t you wait for me

[Verse 2]
Now, I don’t want to bite the hand that’ll show me the other side, no
But I didn’t want to build the land that has fed you your whole life, no
Don’t you find it funny?

You made my bed, dealt with it when the lights went out
Now looking back for temporary nothings
But I bet on it, you’ll all be here when the lights come out

Comments Off on Solange – Interlude: Tina Taught Me lyrics


[Spoken Word Interlude: Tina Lawson]
I think part of it is accepting that it’s so much beauty in being Black and that’s the thing that, I guess, I get emotional about because I’ve always known that. I’ve always been proud to be Black. Never wanted to be nothing else. Loved everything about it, just…

It’s such beauty in Black people, and it really saddens me when we’re not allowed to express that pride in being Black, and that if you do, then it’s considered anti-white. No! You just pro-black. And that’s okay. The two don’t go together. Because you celebrate Black culture does not mean that you don’t like white culture or that you putting it down. It’s just taking pride in it, but what’s irritating is when somebody says, you know, “They’re racist!”, “That’s reverse racism!” or, “They have a Black History Month, but we don’t have a White History Month!”
Well, all we’ve ever been taught is white history. So, why are you mad at that? Why does that make you angry? That is to suppress me and to make me not be proud

[Verse 1: Solange]
Don’t touch my hair
When it’s the feelings I wear
Don’t touch my soul
When it’s the rhythm I know
Don’t touch my crown
They say the vision I’ve found
Don’t touch what’s there
When it’s the feelings I wear

What it means to me
Where we chose to go
Where we’ve been to know
They don’t understand

You know this hair is my shit
Rode the ride, I gave it time

They say the glory’s all mine
Don’t test my mouth
They say the truth is my sound

[Pre-Hook: Solange]
They don’t understand
What it means to me
Where we chose to go
Where we’ve been to know
They don’t understand

If you don’t understand us and understand what we’ve been through, then you probably wouldn’t understand what this moment is about. This is home. This is where we from. This is where we belong

And if it ain’t for the better of the people, nah, ’cause you, you robbing and stealing from the people that been there for so many years, not just come and destroy, and knocking our neighborhoods down. You know, when they come here, you invisible. You know, you don’t even have a number in the system. Nobody cares about you. Everything is about dollars and cents, you know, even when you’re talking the government, you know, even when you’re talking about the, the, the preachers and the people that’s running the community. And we have to show them the evolution of where we come from. I’m about to send a message to the world, like…

[Interlude: Master P]
And they offered me a million dollar deal, and had the check ready. Said I wouldn’t be able to use my name. I was fighting my brother, because “Man, you shoulda took the million dollars!” I said “No, what you think I’m worth? If this white man offer me a million dollars I gotta be worth forty, or fifty… Or ten or something.”
To being able to make “Forbes” and come from the Projects. You know, “Top 40 Under 40.” Which they said couldn’t be done. Had twenty records on the top “Billboard” at one time. For an independent company. Black-owned company. You know, going to the white lady’s house where my Grandmother lived at, and say, “Look, you don’t have to work here no more Big Mama! We got more money than the people on St. Charles Street.”
And I, I took that anger and said, “I’mma put it into my music.” I tell people all the time, “If you don’t understand my record, you don’t understand me, so this is not for you.”

Don’t clip my wings before I learn to fly
I didn’t come back down to Earth to die

Made this song to make it all y’all’s turn
For us, this shit is from us
Get so much from us

Don’t feel bad if you can’t sing along
Just be glad you got the whole wide world
This us
This shit is from us
Some shit you can’t touch

I went away
This concrete don’t have love for me
I took a day
Too much talk and not much to see
I know you always speak on something
So I’ll leave on the mic for you

[Chorus]
And I’m going all the way
But I’ll leave on the lights for you
Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah
In going all the way
And now you’re almost out of view
Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah

‘Cause when I say what I mean, you ought to know
You’ve got to know

Away, away, away

Look what remains
Pour ashes where they claimed my name
They say I changed
But a pity if I stayed the same
Thinking that everything is funny
But don’t say that the jokes on you

[Spoken Word Interlude: Master P]
But man, I done been through it all, so I, I said, “I wanna tell my story.” ‘Cause I never cried or nothing, and that’s where the “Make ’em say uhh uhh,” that’s like my pain. That’s basically what it is. That’s my battle cry. Think about it. None of us are perfect. We live in an imperfect world
You know, only God can judge me, that’s how I look at it. The people that’s sitting around pointing their fingers, imagine all the stuff they’re probably doing. Whether you’re police officers, doctors, lawyers, presidents, whatever, you got good and bad in everything. You know, we’re putting people on a pedestal that’s just a human like us. You know, I mean, they got more drugs in the rich neighborhoods than they got in the hood. A lot of their kids dying from overdose and things like that, think about it. Black kids have to figure it out! We don’t have rehabs to go to. You gotta rehab yourself. But for us, you can’t pull the plug on us and tell us it’s over. Not me!

[Chorus: Solange & Kelela]
Candy red things gonna spin
With that big body, boy, you’re bound to win
And that armor in your mouth
You’re gonna shine
Your wrist talking, boy, it’s only time
Put the incense on
Cover up the smell
And if your boys go down, I know you’ll never tell
You’re a superstar
You’re a superstar
Always shining in the night
And your skin glowing in the moonlight

[Verse: Solange]
The streets say you’re a king
The world says you’re a failure
And your mother is a queen
But damn she always tells ya
“You gon’ end up like your daddy
But damn that nigga fresh
So if it all comes out to plan
You gon’ end up like the best.”
You say, “Look on the TV… they all want to be me.”
For nothing, whatever it’s worth, it’s something
Ain’t no apologizing, for all of the things you want
So if dreams only go so far
They’ll come to where you are
[Chorus: Solange & Kelela]
Candy red things gonna spin
With that big body, boy, you’re bound to win
And that armor in your mouth

Cover up the smell
And if your boys go down, I know you’ll never tell
You’re a superstar
You’re a superstar
Always shining in the night
And your skin glowing in the moonlight

[Outro: Kelela]
Your love is kind
Your love is kind
But your love ain’t blind
Your world is kind
Your world is kind
But your world ain’t blind

Comments Off on Tim Rice – Joseph’s Dreams (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) lyrics


Narrator
Joseph’s coat annoyed his brothers
Brothers
But what makes us mad
Are the things that Joseph tells us of the
Dreams he’s often had
Joseph
I dreamed that in the fields one day
The corn gave me a sign
Your eleven sheaves of corn
All turned and bowed to mine
My sheaf was quite a sight to see
A golden sheaf and tall
Yours were green and second-rate
And really rather small
~ Brothers ~
Small! This is not the kind of thing
We brothers like to hear
It seems to us that Joseph and his
Dreams should disappear
~ Joseph ~
I dreamed I saw eleven stars
The sun the moon and sky
Bowing down before my star,
It made me wonder why
Could it be that I was born
For higher things than you?
A post in someone’s government
A ministry or two
~ Brothers ~
The dreams of our dear brother are
The decade’s biggest yawn
His talk of stars and golden sheaves
Is just a load of corn
Not only is he tactless but
He’s also rather dim
For there’s eleven of us and
There’s only one of him
The dreams of course will not come true
That is, we think they won’t come true
That is, we hope they won’t come true
What if he’s right all along?
The dreams are more than crystal clear
The writing on the wall
Means that Joseph some day soon
Will rise above us all
The accuracy of the dreams
We brothers do not know
But one thing we are sure about;
The dreamer, dreamer, the dreamer, dreamer, the dreamer,
Dreamer, the dreamer, dreamer, the dreamer, dreamer, dreamer,
Dreamer, dreamer has to go!

Ché: Goodnight and thank you, Magaldi
You’ve completed your task
What more could we ask of you now?

Please sign the book on your way out the door
That will be all
If we need you, we’ll call
But I don’t think its likely somehow

Eva: Oh, but it’s sad when a love affair dies
The parting, the closing of doors
But we must be honest, stop fooling ourselves

Ché: Which means “Up yours!”

Ché & Eva: There is no one, no one at all
Never has been and never will be a lover
Male or female
Who hasn’t an eye on
In fact they rely on
Tricks they can try on their partner
They’re hoping their lover will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don’t blame them
You’re the same

Ché: Goodnight and thank you, whoever
She’s in every magazine
Been photographed, seen, she is known
We don’t like to rush but your case has been packed
If we’ve missed anything, you could give us a ring
But we don’t always answer the phone

Eva: Oh, but it’s sad when a love affair dies
But when we were hot, we were hot
I know you’ll look back on the good times we shared

Ché: But Eva will not!

Ché, Eva, and Eva’s suitors: There is no one, no one at all
Never has been and never will be a lover
Male or female
Who hasn’t an eye on
In fact they rely on
Tricks they can try on their partner
They’re hoping their lover will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don’t blame them
You’re the same

Ché: Goodnight and thank you, whoever
She’s in every magazine
Been photographed, seen, she is known
We don’t like to rush but your case has been packed
If we’ve missed anything, you could give us a ring
But we don’t always answer the phone

Eva: Oh, but it’s sad when a love affair dies
But when we were hot, we were hot
I know you’ll look back on the good times we shared

Ché: But Eva will not!

Ché, Eva, and Eva’s suitors: There is no one, no one at all
Never has been and never will be a lover

Tricks they can try on their partner
They’re hoping their lover will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don’t blame them
You’re the same

Ché: Goodnight and thank you, whoever
We are grateful you’ve found
Her a spot on the sound radio
We’ll think of you every time she’s on the air
We’d love you to stay
But you’d be in the way
So do up your trousers and go

Eva: Oh, but it’s sad when a love affair dies
The decline into silence and doubt
Our passion was just too intense to survive

Ché: For God’s sake, get out!

Eva’s suitors: Oh but this line’s an embarrassing sight
Someone has made us look fools
Argentine men call the sexual shots
Someone has altered the rules

Ché: Fame on the wireless as far as it goes
It’s all very well, but every girl knows
She needs a man she can monopolize
With fingers in dozens of different pies

Eva’s suitors: Oh, but it’s sad when a love affair dies

Joseph
I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain
To see for certain what I thought I knew
Far far away, someone was weeping
But the world was sleeping
Any dream will do

Joseph & Children
I wore my coat, with golden lining
Bright colors shining, wonderful and new
And in the east, the dawn was breaking
And the world was waking
Any dream will do
Joseph
A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colors faded into darkness
I was left alone
Joseph & Children
May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do

Joseph
A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colors faded into darkness
I was left alone

Joseph & Children
May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do

Comments Off on Tim Rice – Angel In Heaven (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) lyrics


Father we’ve something to tell you, a story of our time. A tragic but
Inspiring tale, of manhood in its prime. You know you had a dozen sons?
Well now that’s, not quite true. But feel no sorrow, do not grieve, he
Would not want you to.

There’s one more Angel in Heaven, there’s one more star in the sky.
Joseph we’ll never forget you. It’s tough but we’re gonna get by.

There’s one less place at our table. There’s one more tear in my eye.
But Joseph the things that you stood fer, like truth and light never die.
When I think of his last great battle, a lump comes to my throat.
It takes a man who knows no fear to wrestle with a goat.
His blood-stained coat is tribute to his final sacrifice. His body may
Be past it’s peak but his soul’s in paradise.

So long little Jo!
Adios Buckeroo!
Ten four good buddy…

There’s one less place at our table. There’s one more tear in my eye.
But Joseph the things that you stood fer, like truth and light never die!
Carve his name with pride and courage, let no tear be shead.
If he had not laid down his life, we all would now be dead.

Comments Off on Sabrina Carpenter – On Purpose lyrics


Your eyes crashing into my eyes
Was I accidentally falling in love
Your words didn’t mean to heal the hurt
We’re coincidentally more than enough

All these days I never thought
That I would need someone so much, who knew?
But I don’t think I ever planned
For this helpless circumstance with you

You’re scared, I’m nervous
But I guess that we did it on purpose, on purpose, on purpose
Baby, I know it’s weird but it’s worth it
Cause I guess that we did it on purpose, on purpose, on purpose
But I guess that we did it on purpose
But I guess that we did it on purpose

My dreams running into your dreams
It’s as if we wished on the same star
And my time changing all of your time
It’s a butterfly effect on my heart

All these days I never thought
That I would need someone so much, who knew?(Who knew)
But I don’t think I ever planned
For this helpless circumstance with you(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

You’re scared, I’m nervous
But I guess that we did it on purpose, on purpose, on purpose
Baby, I know it’s weird but it’s worth it
But I guess that we did it on purpose, on purpose, on purpose
But I guess that we did it on purpose
But I guess that we did it on purpose

Lost in darkness
You’re my focus
Love me hopeless
But I guess that we did it on purpose
Lost in darkness
You’re my focus
Love me hopeless
Oh, you’re scared

You’re scared, I’m nervous
But I guess that we did it on purpose, on purpose, on purpose
Baby, I know it’s weird, but it’s worth it
Cause I guess that we did it on purpose, on purpose, on purpose

Lost in darkness
You’re my focus
Love me hopeless
But I guess that we did it on purpose
Lost in darkness
You’re my focus
Love me hopeless
But I guess that we did it on purpose

Some folks dream of the wonders they’ll do,
Before their time on this planet is through.
Some just don’t have anything planned,
They hide their hopes and theirs heads in the sand.

Now I don’t say who is wrong who is right,
But if by chance you are here for the night.
Then all I need is an hour or two to tell the tale of a dreamer like you.

We all dream a lot.
Some are lucky, some are not.
But if you think it, want it, dream it,
Then it’s real.
You are what you feel.

But all that I say,
Can be told another way.
In the story of a boy who’s dreams came true.
And he could be you.

Comments Off on Tim Rice – Potiphar (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat) lyrics


Narrator:
Joseph was taken to Egypt in chains
And sold
Where he was bought by a captain named Potiphar

Potiphar had very few cares.
He was one of Egypts millionaires.
Having made a fortune buying shares
In pyramids.
Potiphar had made a huge pile.
Owned a large percentage of the Nile.
Meant that he could really live in style
And he did.

Joseph was an uniportant
Slave who found he liked his master,
Consequently worked much harder,
Even with devotion.
Potiphar could see that Joseph
Was a cut above the average
Made him leader of the household,
Maximum promotion.

Potiphar was cool and so fine,
But his wife would never tow the line.
It’s all there in chapter thirty-nine of
Genesis.
She was beautiful but evil.
Saw a lot of men against his will.
He would have to tell her
That she still was his.

Joseph’s looks and handsome figure
Had attracted her attention
Ev’ry morning she would beckon
“Come and lie with me, love.”
Joseph wanted to resist her
‘Till one day she proved too eager.
Joseph cried in vain,
“Please stop! I don’t believe in free love!”

Potiphar was counting shekels
In his den below the bedroom
When he heard a mighty rumpus
Clattering above him.
Suddenly he knew his riches
Couldn’t buy him what he wanted
Gold would never make him happy
If she didn’t love him.

Letting out a mighty roar,
Potiphar burst through the door:
Joseph, I’ll see you rot in jail.
The thing you have done are beyond the pale.

Poor, poor Joseph, locked up in a cell.
Things aren’t going well, hey,
Locked up in a cell.

Poor poor joseph
Locked up in a cell
Things aren’t going well, hey,
Locked up in a cell

Locked up
In a cell

Narrator
Next day, far from home
The brothers planned the repulsive crime
Brothers
Let us grab him now
Do him in, while we’ve got the time
Narrator
This they did and made the most of it
Tore his coat and flung him in a pit
Brothers
Let us leave him here
All alone and he’s bound to die
Narrator
Then some Ishmaelites
A hairy crew came riding by
In a flash the brothers changed their plan
Brothers
We need cash. Let’s sell him if we can
Narrator, Female Ensemble & Children
Poor, poor Joseph, what’cha gonna do?
Things look bad for you, hey, what’cha gonna do?
Poor, poor Joseph, what’cha gonna do?
Things look bad for you, hey, what’cha gonna do?
Brothers
Could you use a slave
You hairy bunch of Ishmaelites
Young, strong, well-behaved
Going cheap, and he reads and writes
Narrator
In a trice the dirty deal was done
Silver coins for Jacob’s favorite son
Then the Ishmaelites
Galloped off with the slave in tow
Off to Egypt where
Joseph was not keen to go
It wouldn’t be a picnic he could tell
Joseph
And I don’t speak Egyptian very well
Narrator
Joseph’s brothers tore
His precious multi-colored coat
Having ripped it up
They next attacked a passing goat
Soon the wretched creature was no more
They dipped his coat in blood and guts and gore
Narrator, Ensemble & Children
Oh now brothers, how low can you stoop?
You make a sordid group, hey, how low can you stoop?
Poor, poor Joseph, sold to be a slave
Situation’s grave, hey, sold to be a slave
Sold to be a slave

Comments Off on Tim Rice – Mountain Duet (Chess) lyrics


This is the one situation
I wanted most to avoid
Nothing I say will convince him
This isn’t a trick.

A drink on clear moonlit night
I relax, she smiles,
There’s something peculiar
Going on.

So through no fault of my own
I’m stuck here to carry the can.
Embarrassed, uncertain, marooned.

Now she can’t be working for them
I mean us
She seems to know what she’s doing,
But where is he?

He has to turn up,
He wanted this meeting,
Didn’t he?

Maybe he’s scared,
But he didn’t seem scared
In the game.

Oh, I just couldn’t care less.
He can go right ahead,
Go and wreck his career,
I know I’ve done my best.

Well, at least
She’s a good looking spy.

What if my Russian friend
Thinks that my plans
Are more of an intimate kind?
If I don’t say something
And soon
He’ll go.
Maybe I’m on nobody’s side!

Listen, I hate to break up the mood.
Get to the point,
Begin the beguine.
Haven’t you noticed
We are a protagonist short,
In this idyllic,
Well-produced scene?

He couldn’t wait
To join you up here.
Maybe he walked
Cable cars scare him.

Never mind him,
I haven’t missed him so far.

Maybe it won’t do any harm
To struggle on without his charm.
Funny how all at one I feel
That he can go jump off the mountain
I won’t care!

This is the one situation
I wanted most to avoid.

My dear opponent
I really can’t imagine why.

So I am not dangerous then?
What a shame.

No, you’re not dangerous.
Who could think that of you?
You

You are so strange.
Why can’t you be
What you want to be?
You should be scheming,
Intriguing,
Too clever by half!

I have to hand it to you
For you’ve managed
To make me forget
Why I ever agreed on this farce.
I don’t know why
Know why

I can’t think of anything
I would rather do
Than be wasting my time
On mountains with you.

Who’d ever think it?
Such a very pretty setting.
Tell me what’s the betting,
Very pretty plotting, too.
No matter
I’ve done all your work for you.

Freddie.

Who’d ever guess it?
Daughter in collaboration
With the very nation
Gave her father third degree.
Where’s Daddy, dead,
Or in the KGB?

While my second has been curling up with my
Opponent, I have agreed to new terms with
Global Television, which in short means more money
For you as well, but that can’t be helped. Therefore,
This meeting is unnecessary. The match can continue
And we don’t have to be friends.

Comments Off on Holes And Hearts – Young And Wasted lyrics


Young and wasted
I feel out of my mind
Painted faces
Float above the sky
Don’t know where I’ve been
With These Shots of jameson
They Got my head spinning
Oh, I hope this never ends
These are the best years
Of our mindless nights
Only freedom
There’s no sleep in sight
Caught up in being fools
In such a careless way
Its us against the rules
And Oh I wish that I could stay

Ohh ohhh, party all the time
Pride in our good time, its intoxicated romance
Ohh ohhh,
Soaking up the love,in our fascination sun dance
Ohhh ohhh
Some dont feel the same, we’re a cult without a name
Ohhh ohhh
Only fun instead and were all young and wasted.

There’s no worries
Only love with us
A celebration
Nothing serious
About those dessert roads
About those Vegas nights
This is our glowing home
Dancing under neon lights
And I feel welcome
Nowhere else but here
In the arms of
Many youthful years
A dizzy spirit ride
Rewinds behind my eyes
And now I’ve realized
I will not forget this life

Ohh ohhh, party all the time
Pride in our good time, its intoxicated romance
Ohh ohhh,
Soaking up the love,in our fascination sun dance
Ohhh ohhh
Some dont feel the same, we’re a cult without a name
Ohhh ohhh
Only fun instead and were all young and wasted.

Comments Off on James Arthur – Say You Won’t Let Go lyrics


I met you in the dark
You lit me up
You made me feel as though
I was enough
We danced the night away
We drank too much
I held your hair back when
You were throwing up

Then you smiled over your shoulder
For a minute, I was stone cold sober
I pulled you closer to my chest
And you asked me to stay over
I said, I already told ya
I think that you should get some rest

I knew I loved you then
But you’d never know
Cause I played it cool when I was scared of letting go
I know I needed you
But I never showed
But I wanna stay with you
Until we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go

I wake you up with some breakfast in bed
I’ll bring you coffee
With a kiss on your head
And I’ll take the kids to school
Wave them goodbye
And I’ll thank my lucky stars for that night

When you looked over your shoulder
For a minute, I forget that I’m older
I wanna dance with you right now, oh
And you look as beautiful as ever
And I swear that everyday you’ll get better
You make me feel this way somehow

I’m so in love with you
And I hope you know
Darling your love is more than worth its weight in gold
We’ve come so far my dear
Look how we’ve grown
And I wanna stay with you
Until we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go

I wanna live with you
Even when we’re ghosts
Cause you were always there for me
When I needed you most

I’m gonna love you till
My lungs give out
I promise till death we part
Like in our vows
So I wrote this song for you
Now everybody knows
That it’s just you and me
Until we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go

Just say you won’t let go
Oh, just say you won’t let go

Comments Off on Green Day – American Idiot lyrics


[Verse 1]
Don’t wanna be an American idiot,
Don’t want a nation under the new media.
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind fuck America.

[Chorus]
Welcome to a new kind of tension,
All across the alien nation,
Where everything isn’t meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow,
We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow,
For that’s enough to argue.

[Verse 2]
Well maybe I’m the faggot America,
I’m not a part of a redneck agenda.
Now everybody do the propaganda,
And sing along in the age of paranoia.

[Chorus]
Welcome to a new kind of tension,
All across the alien nation,
Where everything isn’t meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow,
We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow,
Okay, if that’s enough to argue.

[Hook]
Don’t wanna be an American idiot,
One nation controlled by the media.
Information nation of hysteria,
It’s calling out to idiot America.

[Chorus]
Welcome to a new kind of tension,
All across the alien nation,
Where everything isn’t meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow,
We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow,
For that’s enough to argue.

[Verse 1]
I’m a poor wayfaring stranger
While traveling thru this world of woe
Yet there’s no sickness, toil, nor danger
In that fair land to which I go

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m going there to see my Father
I’m going there no more to roam

[Chorus]
I’m only going over Jordan
I’m only going over home

[Verse 2]
I know dark clouds will hang ’round me,
I know my way is rough and steep
Yet beauteous fields lie just before me
Where God’s redeemed their vigils keep

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m going there to see my mother
She said she’d meet me when I come

[Chorus] x2
I’m only going over Jordan
I’m only going over home

I’m only going over home
