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

Best of the Night: Billie Eilish Actually Looks Happier Than Ever

Did Billie Eilish even know she was performing at the Grammys? The way she rocked out while singing “Happier Than Ever,” jumping up and down and smiling at her brother, guitarist-producer Finneas, she seemed like she was owning a moment all her own. Not even pouring rain — or the fact that she would walk away with zero trophies among the seven she was nominated for, an egregious shutout given the year she had — could ruin the good time she was having on top of a prop mobile home as she belted “Just leave me aloooo-ho-ho-hone.” But she didn’t lose herself completely; she still remembered to hold up her T-shirt, repping late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, sharing in her triumph. 

Lyrics

When I’m away from you, I’m happier than ever
Wish I could explain it better
I wish it wasn’t true, hm
Give me a day or two to think of something clever
To write myself a letter
To tell me what to do, mm-mmm

Do you read my interviews?
Or do you skip my avenue? (My avenue)
When you (when you) said you were passing through
Was I even on your way?
I knew when I asked you to (when I asked you to)
Be cool about what I was telling you
You’d do the opposite of what you said you’d do (what you said you’d do)
And I’d end up more afraid

Don’t say it isn’t fair
You clearly weren’t aware that you made me miserable
So if you really wanna know

When I’m away from you (when I’m away from you)
I’m happier than ever (happier than ever)
Wish I could explain it better (wish I could explain it better)
I wish it wasn’t true (wish it wasn’t true), mmm-hmm

You call me again, drunk in your Benz
Driving home under the influence
You scared me to death, but I’m wasting my breath
‘Cause you only listen to your fucking friends
I don’t relate to you
I don’t relate to you, no
‘Cause I’d never treat me this shitty
You made me hate this city

And I don’t talk shit about you on the internet
Never told anyone anything bad
‘Cause that shit’s embarrassing, you were my everything
And all that you did was make me fucking sad

So don’t waste the time I don’t have
And don’t try to make me feel bad
I could talk about every time that you showed up on time
But I’d have an empty line ’cause you never did
Never paid any mind to my mother or friends
So I shut ’em all out for you ’cause I was a kid

You ruined everything good
Always said you were misunderstood
Made all my moments your own
Just fucking leave me alone

So understanding and so kind

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 – Wrecking Ball by Neil Young

Emmylou Harris ‘Wrecking Ball’

Lyrics

My life’s an open book, you read it on the radio
We’ve got nowhere to hide, we got nowhere to go
But if you still decide you want to take a ride

Meet me at the Wrecking Ball, Wrecking Ball
I’ll wear something pretty and white
And we’ll go dancing tonight
Meet me at the Wrecking Ball, Wrecking Ball
I’ll wear something pretty and white
And we’ll go dancing tonight

I see smokey eyes right across the bar
I’ve seen that look before shining from star to star
Though I can’t take that chance
If you’ve got time for one dance

Meet me at the Wrecking Ball, Wrecking Ball
I’ll wear something pretty and white
And we’ll go dancing tonight
Meet me at the Wrecking Ball, Wrecking Ball
I’ll wear something pretty and white
And we’ll go dancing tonight

The restless line of cars goes stretching down the road
But I won’t telephone ’cause you might say hello
What is it makes me feel this way?
What is it makes me want to say?

Meet me at the Wrecking Ball, Wrecking Ball
I’ll wear something pretty and white
And we’ll go dancing tonight
Meet me at the Wrecking Ball, Wrecking Ball
I’ll wear something pretty and white
And we’ll go dancing tonight

Kacey Musgraves – Butterflies (Audio)

Butterflies

Kacey Musgraves

I was just coastin’, never really goin’ anywhere
Caught up in a web, I was gettin’ kind of used to stayin’ there
And out of the blue
I fell for you

Now you’re liftin’ me up, ‘stead of holdin’ me down
Stealin’ my heart, ‘stead of stealin’ my crown
Untangled all the strings, round my wings, that were tied
I didn’t know him and I didn’t know me
Cloud nine, was always out of reach
Now I remember what it feels like to fly
You give me butterflies

Kiss full of color, makes me wonder where you’ve always been
I was hiding in doubt ’til you brought me out of my chrysalis
And I came out new
All because of you

Now you’re liftin’ me up, ‘stead of holdin’ me down
Stealin’ my heart, ‘stead of stealin’ my crown
Untangled all the strings, round my wings, that were tied
I didn’t know him and I didn’t know me
Cloud nine, was always out of reach
Now I remember what it feels like to fly
You give me butterflies
Yeah, you give me butterflies

Now you’re liftin’ me up, ‘stead of holdin’ me down
You’re takin’ my hand, ‘stead of takin’ my crown

Untangled all the strings, round my wings, that were tied
I didn’t know him and I didn’t know me
Cloud nine, was always out of reach
Now I remember what it feels like to fly
You give me butterflies, hmm hmm hmm
You give me butterflies, hmm hmm hmm

The Cranberries – When You’re Gone (OMV)

The Cranberries – When You’re Gone (Official Music Video)

[Verse 1]
Hold onto love
That is what I do
Now that I’ve found you
And from above
Everything’s stinking
They’re not around you

[Pre-Chorus]
And in the night
I could be helpless
I could be lonely
Sleeping without you
And in the day
Everything’s complex
There’s nothing simple
When I’m not around you

[Chorus]
But I miss you when you’re gone
That is what I do
Hey, baby
And it’s going to carry on
That is what I knew
Hey, baby

Do-be-da, do-be-da
Do-be-da, do-be-da

[Verse 2]
Hold onto my hands
I feel I’m sinking
Sinking without you
And to my mind
Everything’s stinking
Stinking without you

[Pre-Chorus]
And in the night
I could be helpless
I could be lonely
Sleeping without you
And in the day
Everything’s complex
There’s nothing simple
When I’m not around you

[Chorus]
And miss you when you’re gone
That is what I do
Hey, baby
And it’s going to carry on
That is what I knew
Hey, baby
