SHELBY LYNNE: I CAN'T IMAGINE


SHELBY LYNNE is one of my favourites. There are a lot of gems in each one of her records, and this is I CAN'T IMAGINE from her last album, with the same title. A collection of great songs that begins with this one. Hope you like it.





LYRICS

I can't imagine
How you're feeling
I can't imagine
What's been going on
I know it's hard for you this evening
To cry the blues out loud until they're gone

Nothing I can say
Could ever change it
I ain't afraid of your pain
I can heal it baby

The road out of here is golden omen now
Wait out the moon in this riverbed tonight

I can't imagine how you're feeling
I can't imagine what's been going on
I know it's hard for you this evening
To cry the blues out loud until they're gone

Walking in the shadows
Of blooming beauties
Facing the few
Who held onto me baby
The voices pass
Fading off the coast
The desert skies
Calling me home

I can't imagine how you're feeling
I can't imagine what's been going on
I know it's hard on you this evening
To cry the blues out loud until they're gone
Cry the blues out loud until they're gone
Cry the blues out loud until they're gone...

GRETCHEN PETERS: BLACKBIRDS


I think GRETCHEN PETERS is one of the most intelligent singer-songwriters of the contemporary music. Her lyrics are filled with irony and can be very disturbing. I can't get out of my head BLACKBIRDS, much more than a Story about domestic violence. Hope You Like it.




LYRICS

Verse 1]
The blackbirds came at dusk and they roosted in the cane
Raised such a ruckus that it shook my windowpane
And I’m covered up in dirt and I stink of kerosene
And no matter what I do I can’t get clean
Last thing I remember was your footsteps in the hall
Whisky in your voice and a shotgun on the wall
Now there’s shadows in the shadows, there’s trouble in the cane
And there’s things you do that you just can’t explain

[Chorus]
Uneasy lies the head – unfaithful is the heart
Ungrateful and unlucky and untrue
And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go
Only the blackbirds and you

[Verse 2]
Come harvest in the cane fields the sky turns black with smoke
So I took our father’s gun and a heavy piece of rope
And I left you lying there like rotten fruit upon the ground
And I lit a torch and I burned the whole thing down

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Our father was a farmer he planted fields of cane
He planted seeds of evil and we harvested the shame
Oh but I’m the last one standing there’s no one left to tell
And when it’s my time I’ll see you both in hell

COUNTING CROW: SCARECROW


All we were expecting the return of COUNTING CROWS and They are here to stay, because their new album Somewhere Under Wonderland is full of great songs like the first albums of the band. This is SCARECROW, the first way to begin to listen this band again. Hope You Like.




LYRICS 

Mary steers clear of the men from space
Back alley kid with an American face
She wants the wine
He brings a case to carry them on through
I said you know what I now
About the bedroom boys
Udercover Russians in a pink Rolls Royce
They bang the drum, she sets the beat
They carry Miss America out into the street
She sings Snowman! Scarecrow! John Doe! Buffalo!
I wish you wouldn't go
I got the arms to reach you
I am the scarecrow
Oh, guess you oughta know
I got the hands to teach you
I am the scarecrow
Snowman sideshow
I fell out of love
In the snowbound days
Riding the subway in a Valium haze
I need the white, she gets the blues
It carries us on through
All these American boys
At the park 'n' shop
Selling their memories fro a dollar a pop
Ivan the ancient spaceman race fan
Corners the market on American tastes
And says Spaceman! Scarecrow! Peepshow! Freakshow!
I wish you wouldn't go
But I got the arms to reach you
I am a scarecrow
Oh I guess you oughta known
That I got the hands to teach you
I am a scarecrow
Hmm Punk rock video
All the sudden light inside you dies
Maybe you're going on alone
Maybe you're going all alone
She dreams of sunlight, sings of smaller things
White sugar bowls and wedding rings
And you're going on from me alone
You're going on, you're on your own
She was married alive in a Moscow surgery
Hoping to die in a cold war nursery
All of the kids back home
Believe in much more than we do
It's a memory play, where the memory fades
Into pictures you took
Into records we played
Spy vs. Spy, Scrarecrow and I
Out across the darkness where the bomber jets fly
Singing Spaceman! Smokeshow! Scarecrow! Geronimo!
I wish you wouldn't go
I got the arms to reach you
I am the scarecrow
Oh, no no no no no no no
Oh, I guess you oughta known
That I got the hands to teach you
I am a scarecrow
Snowman freakshow
Come one, come on, come on
Oh, I wish you wouldn't go
But I got the arms to reach you
I am the scarecrow
Oh, hell no
Oh, I guess you oughta know
That I got the hands to teach you
I am the scarecrow
Listen on the midnight radio radio station go!

I will rescue you

ELBOW: NEW YORK MORNING.


I'm absolutely hooked at the new album of ELBOW and I think that one song like NEW YORK MORNING is full of magic. Hope You Like.



In a Live Performance:




LYRICS

The first to pour a simple truth in words
Binds the world in a feeling all familiar
'Cause everybody owns the great ideas
And it feels like there's a big one round the corner
A tenner, up and out into New York
Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
And oh, my giddy aunt, New York can talk
It's the modern road where folk are nice to Yoko
Every bone of rivet steel, each corner stone an anchor
Jenga jutts and rusty water tower, pillar-posted sign
Every painted lining battered, like a building in this town
Sings a life of proud endeavor and the best that man can be
Me, I see a city and I hear a million voices
Planning, drilling, welding, carrying their fingers to the nub
Reaching down into the ground, stretching up into the sky
Why? Because they can, they did and do so you and I could live together
Oh my God, New York can talk
Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
Everybody owns the great ideas
And it feels like there's a big one round the corner
Oh my God, New York can talk
Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
Everybody owns the great ideas
And it feels like there's a big one round the corner
Oh my God, New York can talk
Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
Everybody owns the great ideas
And it feels like there's a big one round the corner
The desire to part sure symphony
The desire like a distant storm
For love, be good for me
And it feels like there's a big one round the corner
Oh my God, New York, you talk
Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
Everybody owns the greats ideas
And it feels like there's a big one round the corner
The way the day begins
Decides the shade of everything
But the way it ends depends on if you're home
For every soul, a pillow at a window, please
In a modern room, where folk are nice to Yoko
