We Can Run, But We Can't Hide Lyrics

We Can Run, But We Can't Hide Lyrics

We don't own this place, though we act as if we did, It's a loan from the children of our children's kids. The actual owners haven't even been born yet. But we never tend the garden and rarely we pay the rent, Some of it is broken and the rest of it is bent Put it all on plastic and I wonder where we'll be when the bills hit. [Chorus:] We can run, But we can't hide from it. Of all possible worlds, We only got one: We gotta to ride on it. Whatever we've done, We'll never get far from what we leave behind, Baby, we can run, run, run, but we...

New Speedway Boogie Lyrics

New Speedway Boogie Lyrics

Please don't dominate the rap, jack, if you've got nothing new to say. If you please, don't back up the track this train's got to run today. I spent a little time on the mountain, I spent a little time on the hill I heard someone say "Better run away", others say "better stand still". Now I don't know, but I been told it's hard to run with the weight of gold, Other hand I have heard it said, it's just as hard with the weight of lead. Who can deny, who can deny, it's not just a change in style? One step down and another begun and I wonder how...

Shakedown Street Lyrics

Shakedown Street Lyrics

You tell me this town ain't got no heart. Well, well, well, you can never tell. The sunny side of the street is dark. Well, well, well, you can never tell. Maybe that's cause it's midnight, in the dark of the moon besides. Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, Maybe the dark is from your eyes, You know you got such dark eyes! Nothin' shakin' on Shakedown Street. Used to be the heart of town. Don't tell me this...

Standing On The Moon Lyrics

Standing On The Moon Lyrics

Standing on the moon I got no cobweb on my shoe Standing on the moon I'm feeling so alone and blue I see the Gulf of Mexico As tiny as a tear The coast of California Must be somewhere over here - over here Standing on the moon I see the battle rage below Standing on the moon I see the soldiers come and go There's a metal flag beside me Someone planted long ago Old Glory standing stiffly Crimson, white and indigo - indigo I see all of Southeast Asia I can see El Salvador I hear the cries of children And the other songs of war It's like a mighty...

Katie Mae Lyrics

Katie Mae Lyrics

Well you know Katie Mae is a good girl Folks say she don't run around at night I made a mistake and she don't run around at night Yes, you can bet your last dollar Katie Mae will treat you right. Well some folks say she must be a Cadillac But I say she got to be a T-model Ford Yes she got the shape alright, but she can't carry no heavy load. And she walks this life Her daddy got oil wells in his backyard Every time she got to working that woman she never has to work too hard. I say bye-bye poor Katie Mae These are the last words I got to...

Looks Like Rain Lyrics

Looks Like Rain Lyrics

Awoke today, felt your side of the bed; The covers were still warm where you been layin'. You were gone, oh gone, my heart was filled with dread; You might not be sleeping here again. But it's alright cause I love you, and that's not going to change. Run me around and make me hurt again and again. But I'll still sing you love songs, written in the letters of your name. The rain is gonna come, oh it surely looks like rain Did you ever waken to the sound of street cats making love? You guess from the cries you were listening to a...

When Push Comes To Shove Lyrics

When Push Comes To Shove Lyrics

Shaking in the forest, what have you to fear? Here there may be tigers, to punch you in the ear. With gloves of stainless steel, bats carved out of bricks Knock you down and beat you up and give your ass a kick. When push comes to shove, you're afraid of love. Shaking in the desert, now wherefore do you cry? Here there may be rattlesnakes, to punch you in the eye. With Shotgun's full of silver and bullet's made of glass String barbed wire at your feet, that will not let you pass. When push comes to shove, you're afraid of love. When push comes...

Sugar Magnolia Lyrics

Sugar Magnolia Lyrics

Sugar magnolia, blossoms blooming, heads all empty and I don't care, Saw my baby down by the river, knew she'd have to come up soon for air. Sweet blossom come on, under the willow, we can have high times if you'll abide We can discover the wonders of nature, rolling in the rushes down by the riverside. She's got everything delightful, she's got everything I need, Takes the wheel when I'm seeing double, pays my ticket when I speed She comes skimmin' through rays of violet, she can wade in a drop of dew, She don't come and I don't follow, waits...

Feel Like A Stranger Lyrics

Feel Like A Stranger Lyrics

Inside you're burnin' I can see clear through Your eyes tell more than you mean them to Lit up and flashin' like the reds and blues Out there on the neon avenue Well I, feel like a stranger (feel like a stranger) Well the music's thunderin', restless and hot You keep firin' me glances across the room And I can't stop wonderin' just what you got Get the feeling I'm going to find out real soon But I feel like a stranger (feel like a stranger) So let's get on with the show, let's go Yes, and the wheels it's smokin 'round midnight You show me a...

Mama Tried Lyrics

Mama Tried Lyrics

The first I remember knowin' was that lonesome whistle blowin' And a youngin's dream of growin' up to ride. On a freight train leavin' town, not knowin' where I was bound No one could steer me right, but mama tried. Was the only rebel child from a family meek and mild Mama seemed to know what lay in store In spite of all my Sunday learnin' For the bad I kept on turnin' and mama couldn't hold me anymore. And I turned 21 in prison, doin' life without parole No one could steer me right, but mama tried, mama tried Mama tried to raise me better,...

Knockin' On Heaven's Door Lyrics

Mama, take this badge off of me, I can't use it anymore It's gettin' dark, too dark for me to see I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door Knock, Knock, Knockin' on heaven's door Mama, put my guns in the ground, I can't shoot them anymore That long black cloud is comin' down I feel like I'm knockin' on Heaven's door

Bird Song Lyrics

Bird Song Lyrics

All I know is something like a bird within her sang, All I know she sang a little while and then flew on, Tell me all that you know, I'll show you snow and rain. If you hear that same sweet song again, will you know why? Anyone who sings a tune so sweet is passin' by, Laugh in the sunshine, sing, cry in the dark, fly through the night. Don't cry now, don't you cry, don't you cry anymore. Sleep in the stars, don't you cry, dry your eyes on the wind. All I know is something like a bird within her sang, All I know she sang a little while and then...

Saint Of Circumstance Lyrics

Saint Of Circumstance Lyrics

This must be heaven, tonight I cross the line. You must be the angel, I though I might never find. Was it you I heard singing, Oh while I was chasin' dreams. Driven by the wind, like the dust that blows around, And the rain fallin' down, but I never know. Got to be heaven, cause here's where the rainbow ends. If this ain't the real thing, then it's close enough to pretend. When that wind blows, when the night's about to fall. You can hear the silence call, it's a certain sort of sound, Like the rain fallin' down. Holes in what's left of my...

Saint Stephen Lyrics

Saint Stephen Lyrics

Saint Stephen with a rose, in and out of the garden he goes, Country garden in the wind and the rain, Wherever he goes the people all complain. Stephen prospered in his time, well he may and he may decline. Did it matter, does it now? Stephen would answer if he only knew how. Wishing well with a golden bell, bucket hanging clear to hell, Hell halfway twixt now and then, Stephen fill it up and lower down and lower down again. Lady in blue, dipped in moonlight, writing "What for?" across the morning sky. Sunlight splatters, dawn with answer,...

Fire On The Mountain Lyrics

Fire On The Mountain Lyrics

Long distance runner, what you standin' there for? Get up, get out, get out of the door Your playin' cold music on the barroom floor Drowned in your laughter and dead to the core. There's a dragon with matches that's loose on the town Takes a whole pail of water just to cool him down. Fire! Fire on the mountain! Almost ablaze still you don't feel the heat It takes all you got just to stay on the beat. You say it's a livin', we all gotta eat But you're here alone, there's no one to compete. If Mercy's a bus'ness, I wish it for you More than...

100,000 Tons Of Steel Lyrics

100,000 Tons Of Steel Lyrics

I know these rails we're on like I know my lady's smile, We see a dozen dreams in every passing mile. Can't begin to count the trips she and I have made, But I wish I had a dollar for each time we've both been down this grade. And 100,000 tons of steel, made to roll. The brakes don't work and this grade's too steep, her engine's sure to blow. And 100,000 tons of steel, out of control, She's more a rollercoaster than the train I used to know. It's one hell of an understatement, to say she can't be beat. She's tempermental, more a bitch than a...

Black Muddy River Lyrics

Black Muddy River Lyrics

When the last rose of summer pricks my finger, And the hot sun chills me to the bone, When I can't hear the song for the singer, And I can't tell my pillow from a stone, I will walk alone by the black muddy river, And sing me a song of my own, I will walk alone by the black muddy river, And sing me a song of my own. When the last bolt of sunshine hits the mountain, And the stars start to splatter in the sky, When the moon hits the southwest horizon, With the scream of an eagle on the fly, I will walk alone by the black muddy river, And listen...

Built To Last Lyrics

There are times that you can beckon There are times when you must call You can shake a ton of reckoning But you can't shake it all There are times when I can help you out And times that you must fall There are times when you must live in doubt And I can't help at all Three blue stars / Rise on the hill Say no more, now / Just be still All these trials / Soon be past Look for something / Built to last Wind held by the collar Got a cloud held by the breeze You can walk on coals of fire But sometimes you must freeze There are times when you...
