Tightrope

Janelle Monáe

Whoaaa!
Another day (adabadee, nigga)
I take your pain away

Some people talk about ya like they know all about ya
When you get down they doubt ya
And when you tip it on the scene, yeah they talkin’ bout it
Cause they can’t tip on the scene
They just talk about it, t-t-t-talk bout it
When you get elevated
They love it or they hate it
You dance up on them haters
Keep getting funky on the scene
While they jumpin’ round ya
They trying to take all of your dreams
But you can’t allow it
Cause baby whether you’re high or low
Whether you’re high or low
You gotta tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
T-t-t-tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Baby, baby, baby, whether you’re high or low (high or low)
Baby whether you’re high or low (high or low)
You got to tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Now let me see you do the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
And I’m still tippin’ on it

See I’m not walkin’ on it
Or tryin to run around it
This ain’t no acrobatics
You either follow or you lead, yeah
I’m talkin’ bout ya
Keep on blaming the machine, yeah
I’m talkin’ bout it
T-t-t-talkin’ bout it
I can’t complain about it
I gotta keep my balance
And just keep dancin on it
We gettin funky on the scene
Yeah you know about it
Like a star on the screen
Watch me tip all on it

Then baby whether I’m high or low (high or low)
Baby whether you’re high or low (high or low)
You gotta tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Yeah, tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Baby, baby, baby
Whether you’re high or low (high or low)
Baby whether you’re high or low (high or low)
Tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Baby let me see you tight rope (tip, tip on it)
And I’m still tippin’ on it

You gotta keep your balance
Or you fall into the gap
It’s a challenge but I manage
Cause I’m cautious with the strap
Do damage to your cabbage that
A doctor cannot patch
Why you don’t want no friction
Like the back of a matchbook
Daddy Fat Sax will fold you
And your MacBook
Close shows, shut you down
Before we go-go backwards
Act up, and whether we high or low
We gonna get back-up
Like the Dow Jones and NASDAQ
Sorta like a thong in an ass crack
Come on

I tip on alligators and little rattlesnakers
But I’m another flavor
Something like a terminator
Ain’t no equivocating
I fight for what I believe
Why you talkin’ ’bout it
J-j-just talkin’ ’bout it
Some callin’ me a sinner
Some callin’ me a winner
I’m callin’ you to dinner
And you know exactly what I mean
Yeah I’m talkin bout you
You can rock or you can leave
Watch me tip without you

N-n-now whether I’m high or low
(High or low)
Whether I’m high or low
(High or low)
I’m gonna tip on the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)
Mmm
(Tip, tip on it)

Baby, baby, baby
Whether I’m high or low
(High or low)
High or low
(High or low)
I got to tip on the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)
Now baby tip on the tightrope

You can’t get too high
(You can’t get too high)
I said you can’t get too low
(We can’t get too low)
Cause you get too high
(You can’t get too high)
No, you’ll surely be low
(No, you’ll surely be low)
1, 2, 3, ho!

Yeah, yeah
Now shut up, yeah
Yeah, now put some voodoo on it
Ladies and gentlemen, the funkiest horn section in Metropolis
Yeah, oh
We call that classy brass

Ohh ohh
Oh!Do you mind?
If I play the ukulele
Just like a little lady
Do you mind?
If I play the ukulele
Just like a little lady

Bright Blue Rose

Christy Moore

I skimmed across black water, without once submerging
Onto the banks of an urban morning
That hungers the first light, much much more
Than mountains ever do.
And she like a ghost beside me goes down with the ease of a dolphin
And emerges unlearned, unscathed, unharmed.
For she is the perfect creature, natural in every feature
And I am the geek with the alchemists stone.
For all of you who must discover, for all who seek to understand

For having left the path of others, you find a very special hand

And it is a holy thing, and it is a precious time
And it is the only way
Forget-me-nots among the snow, it’s always been and so it goes
To ponder his death and his life eternally
For all of you who must discover, for all who seek to understand

For having left the path of others, you find a very special hand

And it is a holy thing, and it is a precious time
And it is the only way
Forget-me-nots among the snow, it’s always been and so it goes
To ponder his death and his life eternally
One bright blue rose outlives all those
Two thousand years and still it goes
To ponder his death and his life eternally

Nanci Griffith – Love at the Five & Dime

Nanci Griffith Love at the Five and Dime

Love at the Five & Dime

Nanci Griffith

Rita was sixteen years
Hazel eyes and chestnut hair
She made the Woolworth counter shine

And Eddie was a sweet romancer
And a darn good dancer
And they waltzed the aisles of the five and dime

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

Dance a little closer to me
Hey, it’s closing time
And love’s on sale
Tonight at this five and dime

Eddie played the steel guitar
And his mama cried ’cause he played in the bars
And he kept young Rita out late at night

Soon they married up in Abelene
Lost a child in Tennessee
But still that love survived

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

One of the boys in Eddie’s band
Took a shine to Rita’s hand
So , Eddie ran off with the bass man’s wife

Oh, but he was back by June
Singin’ a different tune
Sporting Miss Rita back by his side

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

Eddie played in the barroom band
‘Til arthritis took his hands
Now he sells insurance on the side

And Rita’s got her house to keep
She sells dime store novels with a love so sweet
And they dance to the radio late at night and still sing

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

The Corrs – Breathless [Official Video]

Breathless is the first single by The Corrs from their third studio album, In Blue.

Lyrics

Go on, go on
Leave me breathless
Come on
Hey, yeah

The daylight’s fading slowly
But time with you is standing still
I’m waiting for you only
The slightest touch and I feel weak

I can not lie
From you, I can not hide
And I’m losing the will to try
Can’t hide it (can’t hide it)
Can’t fight it (can’t fight it)So go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me
Until I can’t deny this
Loving feeling
Make me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah, come on
Yeah

And if there’s no tomorrow
And all we have is here and now
I’m happy just to have you
You’re all the love I need somehow

It’s like a dream
Although I’m not asleep
And I never want to wake up
Don’t lose it (don’t lose it)
Don’t leave it (don’t leave it)So go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me
Until I can’t deny this
Loving feeling
Make me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah, come on

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And I can’t lie
From you, I can not hide
And I’ve lost my will to try
Can’t hide it (can’t hide it)
Can’t fight it (can’t fight it)

So go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me
Until I can’t deny this
Loving feeling
Make me long for your kiss

Go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Go on, go on

Oh, my life is changing everyday
In every possible way
And oh, my dreams
It’s never quite as it seems

Because it came from you

A different way to be

Impossible not to do

You’re what I couldn’t find
A totally amazing mind
So understanding and so kind
You’re everything to me
Sing it for me!

Oh, my life is changing everyday
In every possible way

And oh, my dreams

Trisha Yearwood – How Do I Live Without You?

How Do I Live

LeAnn Rimes

How do I get through one night without you
If I had to live without you
What kinda life would that be
Oh I, I need you in my arms, need you to hold
You’re my world, my heart, my soul

If you ever leave
Well, baby you would take away everything
Good in my life
And tell me now

How do I live without you?
I want to know
How do I breathe without you?
If you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive
How do I, how do I, oh how do I live

Without you
There’d be no sun in my sky
There would be no love in my life
There’d be no world left for me

And I, well baby, I don’t know what I would do
I’d be lost if I lost you

If you ever leave
Well, baby you would take away everything
Real in my life
And tell me now

How do I live without you
I want to know
How do I breathe without you
If you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive
How do I, how do I, oh how do I live

Please tell me baby how do I go on

If you ever leave
Well, baby you would take away everything
Need you with me
Baby don’t you know that you’re everything
Good in my life

And tell me now
How do I live without you
I want to know
How do I breathe without you
If you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive
How do I, how do I, oh how do I live

How do I live without you?
How do I live without you, baby?
How do I live

The Corrs & Bono – Summer Wine

The Corrs & Bono “Summer Wine” & “When The Stars Go Blue” Live

Summer Wine

Nancy Sinatra

Strawberries, cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things

I walked in town on silver spurs that jingled to
A song that I had only sang to just a few
She saw my silver spurs and said let’s pass some time
And I will give to you summer wine
Oh, oh summer wine

Strawberries, cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Oh, oh summer wine

My eyes grew heavy and my lips they could not speak
I tried to get up but I couldn’t find my feet
She reassured me with an unfamiliar line
And then she gave to me more summer wine
Oh, oh summer wine

Strawberries cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Mmm-mm summer wine

When I woke up the sun was shining in my eyes
My silver spurs were gone, my head felt twice its size
She took my silver spurs, a dollar and a dime
And left me cravin’ for more summer wine
Oh, oh summer wine

Strawberries, cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you my summer wine

Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton – You’ll Never Be the Sun

Lyrics

You’ll never be the sun turning in the sky
And you won’t be the moon above us on the moonlit night
And you won’t be the stars in heaven although they burn so bright
But even on the deepest ocean you will be the light

You may not always shine as you go barefoot over stones
You might be so long together or you might walk alone
And you’ll find that love comes easy
Or that love is always right
So even when the storm clouds gather you will be the light

And if you lose a parting side when love turns round on you
Leaving the past behind is knowing you’ll do like you always
Holding you blind
keeping you true

You’ll never be the sun turning in the sky
and you won’t be the moon above us on the moonlit night
and you won’t be the stars in heaven although they burn so bright
but even on the deepest ocean you will be the light
you will be the light
you will be the light
