You better, you better, you bet.

A drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I’m holding you closer than most ‘cause you are my heaven

I don’t wanna waste the weekend
If you don’t love me pretend
A few more hours then it’s time to go

As my train rolls down the east coast I wonder how you keep warm
It’s too late to cry
Too broken to move on

And still I can’t let you be
Most nights I hardly sleep
Don’t take what you don’t need from me

It’s just a drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
Its like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I’m holding you closer than most ‘cause you are my heaven

Misplaced trust and old friends
Never counting regrets
By the grace of God I do not rest at all

New England as the leaves change
The last excuse that I’ll claim
I was a boy who loved a women like a little girl

And still I cant let you be
Most nights I hardly sleep
Don’t take what you don’t need from me

It’s just a drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I’m holding you closer than most ‘cause you are my

Heaven doesn’t seem far away anymore
No
No
Heaven doesn’t seem far away

Heaven doesn’t seem far away anymore
No
No
Heaven doesn’t seem far away
Oh
Oh

A drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I’m holding you closer than most ‘cause you are my heaven
You are my heaven

You can stop your crying, I’m never coming back
You can stop your crying, just walk down the tracks again
I just can’t take the pressure, it’s all too much for me
I just can’t take the pressure, please just let me be

See I’ve been, breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
Making plans now, for far too long
Yes I’ve been breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
It’s time I left, it’s time I’m moving on.

I’m gonna find a city, call the streets my own
I’m gonna find a city, drink until it’s gone
The girls there, look so pretty, treat me oh so well
The girl there look so pretty, all just empty shells to me

See I’ve been, breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
Making plans now, for far too long
Yes I’ve been breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
It’s time I left, it’s time I’m moving on.

When I need the shelter, I’ll know just who to call
When I need the shelter, I’ll be knocking on your door
But when it comes to dying, I’ll do it on my own
I’ve never been too clever, I’ve always just hung on.

See I’ve been, breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
Making plans now, for far too long
Yes I’ve been breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
It’s time I left, it’s time I’m moving on.

— James Vincent McMorrow - Breaking Hearts

“Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
Sold my coat when I hit Spokane
Bought myself a hard pack of cigarettes in the early morning rain
Lately my hands they don’t feel like mine
My eyes been stung with dust and blind
Held you in my arms one time
Lost you just the same
Jolene
I ain’t about to go straight
It’s too late
I found myself face down in a ditch
Booze in my hair
Blood in my lips
A picture of you holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don’t know what love means
Still don’t know what love means
Jolene
Been so long since I seen your face
Or felt a part of this human race
I’ve been living out of this here suitcase for way too long
A man needs something he can hold onto
A nine pound hammer or a woman like you
Either one of them things will do
Jolene
I ain’t about to go straight
It’s too late
I found myself face down in a ditch
Booze in my hair
Blood on my lips
A picture of you holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don’t know what love means
Still don’t know what love means
Jolene
Jolene
Jolene”

I wish that I had known in
that first minute we met,
the unpayable debt
that I owed you.

'Cause you'd been abused
by the bone that refused
you and you hired me
to make up for that.

And walking in that room
when you had tubes in your arms,
those singing morphine alarms
out of tune.

They had you sleeping and eating and
and I didn’t believe them
when they called you a hurricane thunderclap.

When I was checking vitals
I suggested a smile.
You didn’t talk for a while.
You were freezing.

You said you hated my tone.
It made you feel so alone
so you told me I had to be leaving

But something kept me standing
by that hospital bed.
I should have quit but instead
I took care of you.

You made me sleep and uneven
and I didn’t believe that
when they told me that there
was no saving you.

— Kettering - The Antlers

I was cutting the rug
Down at place called The Jug
With a girl named Linda Lou
When in walked a man
With a gun in his hand
And he was looking for you know who
He said, “Hey there, fellow
With the hair colored yellow
Whatcha tryin’ to prove?
‘Cause that’s my woman there
And I’m a man who cares
And this might be all for you”
I said, “Excuse me”

I was scared and fearing for my life
I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
‘Cause he was lean, mean
Big and bad, Lord
Pointin’ that gun on me
“Oh, wait a minute, mister
I didn’t even kiss her
Don’t want no trouble with you
And I know you don’t owe me
But I wish you’d let me
Ask one favor from you”

"Oh, won’t you
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
Gimme three steps toward the door?
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
And you’ll never see me no more”

For, sure

Well the crowd cleared away
And I began to pray
And the water fell on the floor
And I’m telling you, son
Well, it ain’t no fun
Staring straight down a forty-four
Well, he turned and screamed at Linda Lou
And that’s the break I was looking for
Well, you could hear me screaming a mile away
I was headed out toward the door

"Oh, won’t you
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
Gimme three steps toward the door?
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
And you’ll never see me no more”

Show me the back door

#musicilistento #OH THIS SONG MAKES ME DANCE LIKE A FREAK

I remember the day it stands clear in my mind
We went down to Dun Laoighaire to wave you goodbye
Your ma was quietly weeping, there was a tear in my eye
your sailing to Gallipoli to die

You looked so young as you stood there with a glint in your eye
and you sang rebel songs as the streamers flew high
Your ma she turned away and I heard her sigh
you are sailing to Gallipoli to die

You were all that we had, your mammy and me
when you marched head erect you were proud as could be
but it killed your poor ma and it slowly killing me
when you were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli

We got only one letter we knew right away
It said deepest regrets your son was bold and he was brave
you were only 19 yet your mammy and I
let you sail to Gallipoli to die

You were all that we had, your mammy and me
when you marched head erect you were proud as could be
but it killed your poor ma and it slowly killing me
when you were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli

You fought for the wrong country you fought for the wrong cause
and your ma often said that it was Ireland’s great loss
all those fine young men who marched to foreign shores to fight the war
when the greatest war of all was at home

You were all that we had, your mammy and me
when you marched head erect you were proud as could be
but it killed your poor ma and it slowly killing me
when you were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli
