Lyrics for the Day – Once in A Lifetime

My God! What have I done? And how did I get here?

th (1).jpg

And you may find yourself
Living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself
In another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house
With a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself
Well
How did I get here?

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…

Water dissolving
And water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Under the water
Carry the water
At the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
Into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go to?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right?
Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself
My God!
What have I done?!

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
Into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Look where my hand was
Time isn’t holding up
Time is an asterisk
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Yeah, the twister comes
Here comes the twister
Same as it ever was…

Lyrics for the day – Words of Love

While working on “of LOVE”, “LOVE is”, “in LOVE”, and “A Certain LOVE”

th (8).jpg

Hold me close and
Tell me how you feel
Tell me love is real
Mm, mm, mm, mm

Words of love you
Whisper soft and true
Darling I love you
Mm, mm, mm, mm

Let me hear you say
The words I want to hear
Darling when you’re near
Mm, mm, mm, mm

Words of love you
Whisper soft and true
Darling I love you
Mm, mm, mm, mm

Lyrics for the Day – I Must Have Someone Else’s Blues

Love the Great Lake Swimmers — maybe it’s the connection to Lake Michigan…

th (3).jpg

I can’t seem
To keep out
Of the rain
I’m in a storm
That I can’t shake away
Salvation
I thought of nothing less
I’ll keep driving ’till I run out of gas
Salvation
Yes it was here all along
Still can’t figure out what went so wrong
Keep on the sunny side
Keep on
Keep on

I lost my heart
I’m looking for clues
I must have someone else’s blues
A bad bit of weather that I can’t defuse
I must have someone else’s blues
I can’t help staring at my shoes
I must have someone else’s blues
I leave my door and trouble ensues
I must have someone else’s blues

Keep on the sunny side
Keep on
Keep on

I lost my heart
I’m lookin’ for clues
I must have someone else’s blues
A bad bit of weather that I can’t defuse
I must have someone else’s blues
I can’t help staring at my shoes
I must have someone else’s blues
I leave my door and trouble ensues
I must have someone else’s blues

II must have someone else’s blues
I must have someone else’s blues
A bad bit of weather and I can’t defuse
I must have someone else’s blues
I can’t help staring at my shoes
I must have someone else’s blues
I leave my door and trouble ensues
I must have someone else’s blues

Lyrics for the Day -Barrier Reef

Lots of great Old 97’s songs. Hadn’t heard this one for awhile until it was played on The Loft (SiriusXM) today.

th.jpg

The Empty Bottle was half empty
Tide was low, and I was thirsty
Saw her sittin’ at the bar
Well you know how some girls are
Always makin’ eyes
Well she wasn’t makin’ eyes
So I sidled up beside her
Settled down and shouted, Hi there
My name’s Stewart Ransom Miller
I’m a serial lady-killer
She said, I’m already dead
That’s exactly what she said
So we tripped the lights fantastic
We was both made of elastic
Midnight came and midnight went
And I though I was the President
She said, Do you have a car
And I said, Do I have a car

What’s so great
About the Barrier Reef
What’s so fine
About art
What’s so good
About a good times van
When you’re working on a broken
Working on a broken
Working on a broken man
When you’re working on a broken
Working on a broken
Working on a broken man

My heart wasn’t in it
Not for one single minute
I went through the motions with her
Her on top and me on liquor
Didn’t do no good
Well I didn’t think it would

What’s so great
About the Barrier Reef
Yeah what’s so fine about art
What’s so good
About a good times van
When you’re working on a broken
Working on a broken
Working on a broken man
When you’re working on a broken
Working on a broken
Working on a broken man
When you’re working on a broken
Working on a broken
Working on a broken man

Lyrics for the Day – 40 Dogs

Another favorite from the DOGS playlist

th (2).jpg

Well if I spell it out
If I get it out
Will you hear me when I tell you about
What I have to say before it gets too late
It’s not as easy as I said it’d be
But there’s something right about you and me
Something right about you and me
Well you’re the color of a burning brook
You’re the color of a sideways look from an undercover cop in a comic book
You’re the color of a storm in June
You’re the color of the moon
You’re the color of the night
That’s right
Color of a fight
You move me
You’re the color of the colored part of The Wizard of Oz movie

We’re like Romeo and Juliet
We’re like 40 dogs
Cigarettes
We’re like good times that haven’t happened yet
But will
And I can tell you where we’re gonna be
When the whole world falls to the sea
Well be livin’ ever after
Happily

All the boys taking you for granted
Tell you what they want with their eyes all slanted
I don’t like the way they look at you
I don’t like the way they talk to
I don’t like the way they talk to you
I wouldnt let ’em talk to you like that
Put ’em up high
Teach for the ceiling
Tell them that I’ma walk, damn it, I’m real
And it ain’t no crime, it’s just dreams we’re stealing
Anything to get more of this feeling
You take the high and I’ll take the low
We’ll get there before you know
We ain’t got no time to waste
We got too much life to taste

We’re like Romeo and Juliet
And 40 dogs
Cigarettes
We’re like good times that haven’t happened yet but will
And I can tell you where we’re gonna be
When the whole world falls to the sea
Well be livin ever after
Happily

Sometimes you remind me of a moonbeam
On the ghost of a moonbeam out on the beach
Down by the coast
Slip into Manila
Like the most
Beautiful thing
I’ve ever seen
Come out tonight, come out with me, baby
We’ll throw the careful into the crazy
Turn the sky black into a sky blue
Turn the close shave into a hoo-hoo
What I say is true
Make a fire, gotta burn a few
Make a fire, gotta burn a few
We can do what we want to do

We’re like Romeo and Juliet
40 dogs
Cigarettes
We’re like good times that haven’t happened yet
But will
I can tell you where we’re gonna be
When the whole world falls to the sea
We’ll be livin’ ever after
Happily
