Re: Your Favourite Lyrics?

Postby Gary Troup on Thu Mar 03, 2011 1:57 am

Lately I've been hard to reach, I've been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world where they can be alone
Are you calling me? Are you trying to get through
Are you reaching out for me, like I'm reaching out for you?

I'm just so ****' depressed, I just can seem to get out this slump
If I could just get over this hump
But I need something to pull me out this dump,
I took my bruises, took my lumps
Fell down and I got right back up
But I need that spark to get psyched back up
In order for me to pick the mic back up
I don't know how or why or when I ended up in this position I'm in
I'm starting to feel distant again
So I decided just to pick this pen
Up and try to make an attempt to vent
But I just can't admit
Or come to grips with the fact that I may be done with rap
I need a new outlet, I know some ****'s so hard to swallow
And I just can't sit back and wallow
In my own sorrow
But I know one fact I'll be one tough act to follow
One tough act to follow
I'll be one tough act to follow
Here today, gone tomorrow
But you'd have to walk a thousand miles

In my shoes, just to see
What it's like, to be me
I'll be you, let's trade shoes
Just to see what it'd be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other's minds
Just to see what we find
Look at **** through each other's eyes
But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful, oh
They can all get ****
Just stay true to you
So don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
Oh, they can all get ****
Just stay true to you

I think I'm starting to lose my sense of humor
Everything's so tense and gloom
I almost feel like I gotta check the temperature of the room
Just as soon as I walk in
It's like all eyes on me
So I try to avoid any eye contact
'cause if I do that then it opens a door for conversation
Like I want that... I'm not looking for extra attention
I just want to be just like you
Blend in with the rest of the room
Maybe just point me to the closest restroom
I don't need no **** man servant
Trying to follow me around and wipe my ass
Laugh at every single joke I crack
And half of them ain't even funny like
"Ah, Marshall, you're so funny man, you should be a comedian, god damn"
Unfortunately I am, I just hide behind the tears of a clown
So why don't you all sit down?
Listen to the tale I'm about to tell
Hell, we don't gotta trade our shoes
And you ain't gotta walk no thousand miles

[Chorus]

Nobody asked for life to deal us
With these **** hands we're dealt
We have to take these cards ourselves
And flip them, don't expect no help
Now I could have either just
Sat on my ass and **** and moaned
Or take this situation in which I'm placed in
And get up and get my own
I was never the type of kid
To wait by the door and pack his bags
Who sat on the porch and hoped and prayed
For a dad to show up who never did
I just wanted to fit in
At every single place
Every school I went
I dreamed of being that cool kid
Even if it meant acting stupid
Aunt Edna always told me keep makin' that face it'll get stuck like that
Meanwhile I'm just standin' there
Holdin' my tongue tryna talk like this
'Til I stuck my tongue on that frozen stop sign poll at 8 years old
I learned my lesson then cause I wasn't tryna impress my friends no more
But I already told you my whole life story
Not just based on my description
'cause where you see it from where you're sitting
Is probably 110% different
I guess we would have to walk a mile
In each other's shoes, at least
What size you wear? I wear 10s
Let's see if you can fit your feet

[Chorus]

Lately I've been hard to reach, I've been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world where they can be alone...
So are you calling me, are you trying to get through, oh?
Are you reaching out for me, I'm reaching out for you?
So oh oh

Yeah... To my babies. Stay strong.
Daddy will be home soon
And to the rest of the world, God gave you the shoes
That fit you, so put 'em on and wear 'em
And be yourself, man, be proud of who you are
Even if it sounds corny,
Don't ever let no one tell you you ain't beautiful

If I don't say this now I will surely break
As I'm leaving the one I want to take
Forgive the urgency but hurry up and wait
My heart has started to separate

Oh, oh, oh
Be my baby
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
I'll look after you

There now, steady love, so few come and don't go
Will you, won't you be the one I always know?
When I'm losing my control, the city spins around
You're the only one who knows, you slow it down

Oh, oh, oh
Be my baby
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
I'll look after you

If ever there was a doubt
My love she leans into me
This most assuredly counts
She says most assuredly

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Be my baby
I'll look after you

It's always have and never hold
You've begun to feel like home
What's mine is yours to leave or take
What's mine is yours to make your own

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Be my baby
Oh, oh, oh

You know TS, when I opened this post, for a split second I thought it was a completely different song. When I saw words "Baby" and "oh"... :|
I could have totally lost any respect for you. :whistle:

Tijon- One way track

One way train one way track
One time that we'll never look back
Its a leap of faith as we fade away
And we'll never look back on our runaway track

Sleep little boy the nightmares will go away
It's only ****ed cause his nightmares reality
Every night tastes the salt of his own tears
Pillows are puddles understand this boy's fears
Paper thin walls, hears his moms call, screamin for help
And he knows that he ain,t no help, but **** it
Cuz he sees in himself what a man should be
And at 10 he seeing **** that no man should see
So he mans up busts in the door
Sees his step father choking her out, falls to the floor
Risks every inch of his life, gives every inch of his fight
But he ain't have a chance, this a man and a child
Denial, fair description of his mothers depiction
Prescription drugs in vein, numbed her out Novocain
No vacays same track everyday
So he turns his music up, his escape from the pain
Runaway

Catch a runaway train, never look back
This our one way out a one room shack
On a shady day, We gon' fade away
And we'll never look back, On our runaway track

One way train, One way track
One time that we'll never look back
It's a leap of faith as we fade away
And we'll never look back, on our runaway track

Let's pretend Marshall Mathers never picked up a pen
Let's pretend things would have been no different
Pretend he procrastinated had no motivation
Pretend he just made excuses that were so paper thin
They could blow away with the wind
Marshall you’re never gonna make it
Makes no sense to play the game
There ain’t no way that you’ll win
Pretend he just stayed outside all day and played with his friends
Pretend he even had a friend to say was his friend
And it wasn’t time to move and schools were changing again
He wasn’t socially awkward and just strange as a kid
He had a father and his mother wasn’t crazy as ****
And he never dreamed he could rip stadiums he's just lazy as ****
**** a talent show in a gymnasium bitch
You won’t amount to **** quit daydreaming kid
You need to get your cranium checked
You thinking like an alien it just ain’t realistic
Now pretend they ain’t just make him angry with this ****
And there was no one he could even aim when he’s **** it
And his alarm went off to wake him but he didn’t make it to the rap Olympics
Slept through his plane and he missed it
He’s gon’ have a hard time explaining to Hailie and Lainey these food stamps and this WIC ****
Cuz he never risked ****, he hopes and he wished it but it didn’t fall in his lap
So he ain’t even here
He pretends that…

Can you lie next to her
And give her your heart, your heart
As well as your body
And can you lie next to her
And confess your love, your love
As well as your folly
And can you kneel before the king
And say I'm clean, I'm clean

But tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with my whole heart
Oh tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with my whole heart

A white blank page and a swelling rage, rage
You did not think when you sent me to the brink, the brink
You desired my attention but denied my affections, my affections

Ohhhhh Ohhhh (repeat)
Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life
Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life
Ohhhhh Ohhhh (repeat)

What is life?
Life is like a big obstacle
Put in front of your optical to slow you down
And every time you think you've gotten past it
It's gonna come back around and tackle you to the damn ground
What are friends?
Friends are people that you think are your friends
But they're really your enemies, with secret identities
And disguises, to hide their true colors
So just when you think you close enough to be brothers
They wanna come back and cut your throat when you ain't lookin'
What is money?
Money is what makes a man act funny
Money is the root of all evil
Money'll make them same friends come back around
Swearing that they was always down
What is life?
I'm tired of life

All the lyrics from the new 3DD album :D
You were the best thing I'll ever give up
And it's hard to see the truth
When you think you're still in love
The only way to get on with my life
Is to say goodbye, so goodbye

It's time to let you go, it's what we have to do
It's time to give this up, I think that we both knew
There's nothing left to say and nothing left to prove
And now it's time to turn and walk away from
What's left of me and you
What's left of me and you

...
This world asks for so much
Despite what you give it's just never enough
Then you're left cold tired and alone
Searching for something that's already gone
You try not to be afraid
Bound down by all of these things that they say
And you feel like you're all by yourself
But I’ll be right here when there's nothing else

Lay down
Rest here in peace in my arms now
Knowing you're safe
From the storms and the rain
And from all of your pain
And I’ll be here when only the silence remains
When only the silence remains

Your fears they know that you're scared
Wherever you go they seem to meet you there
And you face them all on your own
Never the weak always the strong
And you win most of the time
Never once claiming that victory's mine
And you carry this burden alone
But this candle's burned at both ends for so long

...
You give what you give cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won’t take you
And they want you to be what they make you
It’s already over and done
When you’re young


etc etc!
It doesn't matter who we were... It only matters who we are.

Life sucks, and then you die. And then it still sucks.

She's sitting there getting liquored up at the bar

She says it's quicker to count the things that ain't wrong with you

Than to count the things that are

Fancy girls on Long Beach Boulevard
Flagging down all of these flashy cars

And Lord knows she's beautiful
Lord knows the usuals leaving her body sore
She take the little change she make to fix her nail cuticles
Lipstick is suitable to make you fiend for more
She play Mr. Shakur, that's her favorite rapper
Bumping "Brenda's Got a Baby" while a pervert yelling at her
And she capture features of a woman, but only 17
The 7 cars start honking, she start running like Flo-Jo
Don't care if they Joe Blow
If they got money to blow a blow job is a sure go
And sure enough don't see a dime of dirty dollars
She give all to her daddy but she don't know her father, that's ironic
See a block away from Lueders Park, I seen the El Camino parked
In her heart she hate it there, but in her mind she made it where
Nothing really matters, so she hit the back seat
Rosa Parks never a factor when she making ends meet

Fancy girls on Long Beach Boulevard
Flagging down all of these flashy cars

And Lord knows she's beautiful
Lord knows the usuals leaving her body sore
Her anatomy is God's temple
And it's quite simple, her castle is 'bout to be destroyed
She's always paranoid, watching the law inside the streets
Undercovers the dummies that look like decoys
Remember the sergeant let her slide, said if he seen
What's between her thighs he'd compromise, to no surprise
She took the ultimatum 'round the alleyway and gave him
A warm welcome that filled him right below the navel
Though he was wired up like a pair of jumping cables
His eyes was closed shut, prior charges, he had waived 'em
It was a block away from Lueders Park, I seen a squad car parked
And in her heart, she hate it there but in her mind, she made it where
Nothing really matters, so she hit the back seat
Cause Rosa Parks never a factor when she topping off police

Fancy girls on Long Beach Boulevard
Flagging down all of these flashy cars

And Lord knows she's beautiful
Lord knows the usuals leaving her body sore
As she bust down like a 12 bunk on tour
She suddenly realized, she'll never escape the allure
Of a black man, white man, needing satisfaction
At first, it became a practice, but now she's numb to it
Sometimes she wonder if she can do it like nuns do it
But she never heard of Catholic religion or sinners' redemption
That sounds foolish, and you can blame it on her mother
For letting her boyfriend slide candy under her cover
Ten months before she was ten he moved in and that's when he touched her
This **** is the **** reason why Keisha rushing through that
Block away from Lueders Park, I seen the El Camino park
And in her heart she hate it there but in her mind, she made it where
Nothing really matters, still she hit the back seat
And caught a knife inside the bladder, left for dead, raped in the street
Keisha's song

My little sister eleven, I looked her right in the face
The day that I wrote this song, sat her down and pressed play

Fancy girls on Long Beach Boulevard
Flagging down all of these flashy cars

First got it when he was six, didn't know any tricks
Matter of fact, first time he got on it he slipped
Landed on his hip and busted his lip
For a week he had to talk with a lisp like thisss
Now we can end the story right here
But shorty didn't quit, it was something in the air
Yeah, he said it was something so appealing
He couldn't fight the feeling, something about it
He knew he couldn't doubt it, couldn't understand it
Branded since the first kickflip he landed
Labeled a misfit, a bandit
Ka-kunk ka-kunk ka-kunk, his neighbors couldn't stand it
So, he was banished to the park
Started in the morning, wouldn't stop 'til after dark
Yeah, when they said "It's getting late in here
So I'm sorry, young man, there's no skating here"

And so he kick, push, kick, push
Kick, push, kick, push; coast
And away he rolled
Just a rebel to the world with no place to go
And so he kick, push, kick, push
Kick, push, kick, push; coast
So come and skate with me
Just a rebel looking for a place to be
So let's kick, and push, and coast

My man got a little older, became a better roller
Yeah, no helmet, hell bent on killing himself
Is what his mama said but he was feeling himself
Got a little more swagger in his style
Met his girlfriend, she was clapping in the crowd
Love is what was happening to him now
He said "I would marry you
But I'm engaged to these aerials and varials
And I don't think this board is strong enough to carry two"
She said "Bow, I weigh a hundred and twenty pounds
Now, let me make one thing clear
I don't need to ride yours, I got mine right here"
So she took him to a spot
He didn't know about, some odd-end apartment parking lot
She said "I don't normally take dates in here"
Security came and said "I'm sorry, there's no skating here"

And so they kick, push, kick, push
Kick, push, kick, push; coast
And away they roll
Just lovers intertwined with no place to go
And so they kick, push, kick, push
Kick, push, kick, push; coast
So come and skate with me
Just a rebel looking for a place to be
So let's kick, and push, and coast

Before he knew, he had a crew, that wasn't no punk
In their Spitfire shirts and SB dunks
They would push 'til they couldn't skate no more
Office building lobbies wasn't safe no more
And it wasn't like they wasn't getting chased no more
Just the freedom was better than breathing, they said
An escape route, they used to escape out
When things got crazy, they needed to break out
They head to any place with stairs
Any good grinds, the world was theirs
And their four wheels would take them there
Until the cops came and said "There's no skating here"

And so they kick, push, kick, push
Kick, push, kick, push; coast
And away they rolled
Just rebels without a cause with no place to go
And so they kick, push, kick, push
Kick, push, kick, push; coast
So come roll with me
Just a rebel looking for a place to be
So let's kick, and push, and coast
