Lyrics

Love Gets Me By

There’s a cap in the corner, where I like it
It’s where I want it
It’s hanging high
There’s a shoo fly shining through the window
He wants my apple
Just fly on by
There’s a candle burning on my table
It makes the time slow
It's burning bright
It's times like now that life’s worth living
And I’m gonna live it until I die

Chorus:

Baby, the grass is growing
The pool is overflowing
And I’ve got just one answer
Love gets me by x3

I take a walk at night, momma says I’m crazy
Well, yeah maybe I do try
But I’m not going to live my life in a bubble
Someone’s made me
My soul would cry

Chorus:
Bridge: Hallelujah! x3
Chorus:
Outro: Hallelujah!!! Love gets me by

Peaches n Cream

Keep him in my heart possess him in my soul.
Strut a little faster flip up my collar, hold it there.
Cold bitter wind on my face it takes its toll.
You flow in through my head and exit out my toes.

How long will I tarry how long am I going to stay?
I need to limit the boundaries for where I’ll be your slave.
Swaggering by their fashion is their strength.
The sun goes down and I wish I’m at the bay.

Chorus:
But, peaches n cream, peaches n cream will be my dinner tonight.
Said, peaches n cream, peaches n cream will be my dinner tonight.

I raise my hand and the cabby comes on by.
Where are you going to take me
I don’t care just get out of here.
I hasten to leave and I hasten to get home.
Evasion from my soul, I am alone.

Chorus:

Don’t Take A Love (Unless It’s On Fire)

I like him. I like him. I like him.
Though I don’t know how he feels about me.
I think about him. I wait for his call.
I can’t believe I do it all,
and I don’t know how he feels about me.

Chorus:

Well, my friends daddy told her something that I like.
He said, “Don’t take a love unless it’s on fire.”
No, no, no.
Don’t take a love unless it’s on fire.

Yeah
Well he can work. He can call.
He can make you queen of all
if it’s what he wants to do.
So, girl enjoy your life. You’re complete.
If he is the one you think he will come running after you.

Chorus:
Bridge:
Build a wall. Build a wall. You give your heart too easily.
Build a wall. When true love calls it will tear it down piece by piece.

Well, the game of love it can be fun
But it leaves you worn out when it’s done
Even if it goes your way.
So, I’ll keep it light, and I won’t lose heart.
If he wants me, he’ll do his part and I won’t hold out for that day.
Chorus:

 

In Love

We’ve all got our weaknesses.
We’ve all got our images.
We’ve all got our time constraints.
We’ve all got our baggage.
We’ve all got our doses of life’s cruel language.
We’ve all got our doses of pain.
We’ve all got our lucky charms, our favorite numbers.
We’ve all got a need to belong.

Chorus:

In love (x7)

We’ve all got our double lives.
A different set of lies.
We’ve all got a dream inside
We’ve got to let survive.
We’ve all got a dirty tale,
We are too scared to reveal it.
We’ve all got a space to live in time.
We’ve all got a race to win,
A different place to spin it in.

We’ve all got a need to be…

Chorus

Found Me A Rock

When you gonna say baby come home?
When you gonna admit you’re all alone?
I’ve got me a place that I call my own
So when you gonna say “baby, come home?”

Chorus:
I’ve found me a rock and I just can’t live without it
Like a song, I can’t sing without it
If I come back, I’ll tell you all about it
I’ve found me a rock, and I just can’t live without it
I’ve found me a rock, and I just can’t live without it

You need some time to think I need to understand
I want you with me baby if you can
figure out a way to be my man
In the meantime, I’m walking tall again

Chorus:

Crystal Breaks

Crystal breaks, shattered in a million pieces, it’s all around me.
And I don’t want to know how I got here, no not really.
Give and take.
Give till is hurts cuz it’s deep in your convictions
Bestowing all your naïve trust, thinking it’s investing.

Chorus:
But don’t you see child?
It’s all in your head.
What you think is real
Say the screaming teachers
Get out of your dream
Cuz we can’t feel it
But stay in there hiding
You’ve got one up on the world
If it makes you smile
stay in there child

My friend goes anywhere he can
just to get away from his daddy
He hits him almost every night
he comes home drinking heavy
His headphones pressed against his ears
gives him peace of mind and serenity
The music seems to tranquilize every cell in his body

Chorus:

Occasional Rumble

Billy Jones is tired, he hasn’t slept all night
Been waiting for his daughter to come home
Julie ran away from her pumped up fight
Now they are both alone
Making love in the kitchen is the pair next door
Their life is so blissfully fresh
Maybe they’ll stay home from work and have some more
What could be better than this?

Chorus:

An occasional rumble from the room upstairs
Occasional rumble
An occasional rumble from the room upstairs
Occasional rumble na na na na….
Suzie Q’s a cutie with her perfect hair
Her life is in her control
Everyday at noon she packs up all her cares
And takes a therapeutic stroll
See Freddy in the park, he has nothing to eat
And no place to call home.
People walking by why your life is so neat
Freddy is all alone. See him he is all alone.

Chorus:
Bridge:
Who’s my momma? Who’s my poppa? My sister, my neighbor too?
Na na na na na, Na na na na na, who am I and who are you?
Who am I and who are you?

The Traveler(Rocky Road)

Tell about your rocky road. Tell about your rocky road.
Have you come across any holes there in your rocky road?
Have you fallen in one so deep? Did it take away your sleep?
Did it take you a while to find a light?
Did it take you a while to climb out?
Tell about your rocky road.
Tell about the ones you met. You know, the ones you won’t forget.
Were they angles in disguise…some of the ones you met?
Did they help you around the corners?
Did they help you up the hills?
Or did they say, “I’m not going to wait for you” and “I’m not going to walk beside you.”
Tell about the ones you met.
There is a man, he is walking down the road.
And down the road there is a fork.
And in the fork there is a great big stone.
And on the stone there sits a boy.
Now there is a boy, he is sitting on a stone.
And the stone, it’s in the middle of the fork.
And the fork, it’s just down the road.
And down the road is a man.
He doesn’t know where to go.

Chorus:

He's never been this way before. X2
It’s unchartered for the traveler.
You know he’ll never be this say again.
Now the man, he gives the boy a coin.
And the coin, goes straight into his pocket.
And out of the pocket comes the boy’s hand.
And his hand it points down the road that-a-way.
See the man he is looking on down the road.
He doesn’t know how far he has to go.
He doesn’t even know if it’s the right road for sure.
And can he trust that boy?

Chorus:
Bridge:
Saying, I want to go down the right road.
I want to go down the right road.
Boy now I gave you my nickel.
And do you even know? Do you? Do you? Do you even know?
Now the boy, is sitting there silently on the stone.
And the man he is staring there in the road.
And the boy, he is just sitting there silently on the stone.
While the man scratching his head stares on down the road.
There’s not a house or a telephone pole
Not a sign saying which way to go
There is not a single soul except that boy
