“Sometimes It’s A Bitch”

Well, I’ve run through rainbows

And castles of candy

I’ve cried a river of tears

From the pain

I try to dance with

What life has to hand me

My partner’s been pleasure

My partner’s been pain

There are days

When I swear I could

Fly like an eagle

And dark desperate hours

That nobody sees

My arms stretched triumphant

On top of the mountain

My head in my hands

Down on my knees

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

Sometimes love’s blind

And sometimes it sees

Sometimes it’s roses

And sometimes it’s weeds

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

I’ve reached in darkness

And come out with treasure

I’ve laid down with love

And I woke up with lies

What’s it all worth

Only the heart can measure

It’s not what’s in the mirror

But what’s left inside

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

Sometimes love’s blind

And sometimes it sees

Sometimes it’s roses

And sometimes it’s weeds

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

You gotta take it as it comes

Sometimes it don’t come easy

I’ve run through rainbows

And castles of candy

And I’ve cried a river of tears

From the pain

I tried to dance with

What life had to hand me

And if I could

I’d do it all over again

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

Sometimes love’s blind

And sometimes it sees

Sometimes it’s roses

And sometimes it’s weeds

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

Sometimes the picture

Just ain’t what it seems

You get what you want

But it’s not what you need

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

Well it’s a breeze

It’s a breeze, it’s a breeze

DailyDDoSe™ by @ELyssaD™

“Vienna” by Billy Joel

Slow down you crazy child

You’re so ambitious for a juvenile

But then if you’re so smart tell me,

Why are you still so afraid? (mmmmm)

Where’s the fire, what’s the hurry about?

You better cool it off before you burn it out

You got so much to do and only

So many hours in a day (Ay)

But you know that when the truth is told

That you can get what you want

Or you can just get old

You’re gonna kick off before you even get halfway through (Oooh)

When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?

Slow down you’re doing fine

You can’t be everything you want to be before your time

Although it’s so romantic on the borderline tonight (tonight)

Too bad, but it’s the life you lead

You’re so ahead of yourself that you forgot what you need

Though you can see when you’re wrong

You know you can’t always see when you’re right (you’re right)

You got your passion, you got your pride

But don’t you know that only fools are satisfied?

Dream on, but don’t imagine they’ll all come true (Oooh)

When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?

Slow down you crazy child

Take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while

It’s alright, you can afford to lose a day or two (oooh)

When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?

And you know that when the truth is told

That you can get what you want or you can just get old

You’re gonna kick off before you even get halfway through (oooh)

Why don’t you realize… Vienna waits for you?

When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?

Why – Live

“Why” by Annie Lennox

How many times do I have to try to tell you

That I’m sorry for the things I’ve done

But when I start to try to tell you

That’s when you have to tell me

Hey… this kind of trouble’s only just begun

I tell myself too many times

Why don’t you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut

That’s why it hurts so bad to hear the words

That keep on falling from your mouth

Falling from your mouth

Falling from your mouth

Tell me…

Why

Why

I may be mad

I may be blind

I may be viciously unkind

But I can still read what you’re thinking

And I’ve heard is said too many times

That you’d be better off

Besides…

Why can’t you see this boat is sinking

(this boat is sinking this boat is sinking)

Let’s go down to the water’s edge

And we can cast away those doubts

Some things are better left unsaid

But they still turn me inside out

Turning inside out turning inside out

Tell me…

Why

Tell me…

Why

This is the book I never read

These are the words I never said

This is the path I’ll never tread

These are the dreams I’ll dream instead

This is the joy that’s seldom spread

These are the tears…

The tears we shed

This is the fear

This is the dread

These are the contents of my head

And these are the years that we have spent

And this is what they represent

And this is how I feel

Do you know how I feel ?

’cause i don’t think you know how I feel

I don’t think you know what I feel

I don’t think you know what I feel

You don’t know what I feel

Not Afraid

“Not Afraid” by Eminem

[Chorus:]

I’m not afraid (I’m not afraid)

To take a stand (to take a stand)

Everybody (everybody)

Come take my hand (come take my hand)

We’ll walk this road together, through the storm

Whatever weather, cold or warm

Just letting you know that, you’re not alone

Holla if you feel like you’ve been down the same road (same road)

[Intro (during Chorus):]

Yeah, it’s been a ride

I guess I had to, go to that place, to get to this one

Now some of you, might still be in that place

If you’re trying to get out, just follow me

I’ll get you there

You can try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay ’em

But you won’t take the sting out these words before I say ’em

Cause ain’t no way I’ma let you stop me from causing mayhem

When I say I’ma do something I do it,

I don’t give a damn what you think,

I’m doing this for me, so fuck the world

Feed it beans, it’s gassed up, if it thinks it’s stopping me

I’ma be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedly

And all those who look down on me I’m tearing down your balcony

No if ands or buts, don’t try to ask him why or how can he

From “Infinite” down to the last “Relapse” album

He’s still shitting, whether he’s on salary paid hourly

Until he bows out or he shits his bowels out of him

Whichever comes first, for better or worse

He’s married to the game, like a fuck you for Christmas

His gift is a curse, forget the Earth, he’s got the urge

To pull his dick from the dirt, and fuck the whole universe

[Chorus]

Okay quit playing with the scissors and shit, and cut the crap

I shouldn’t have to rhyme these words in the rhythm for you to know it’s a rap

You said you was king, you lied through your teeth, for that

Fuck your feelings, instead of getting crowned you’re getting capped

And to the fans, I’ll never let you down again, I’m back

I promise to never go back on that promise, in fact

Let’s be honest, that last “Relapse” CD was ehhh

Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground

Relax, I ain’t going back to that now

All I’m trying to say is get back, click-clack, blow

Cause I ain’t playing around

It’s a game called circle and I don’t know how, I’m way too up to back down

But I think I’m still trying to figure this crap out

Thought I had it mapped out but I guess I didn’t, this fucking black cloud

Still follows, me around but it’s time to exorcise these demons

These motherfuckers are doing jumping jacks now!

[Chorus]

And I just can’t keep living this way

So starting today, I’m breaking out of this cage

I’m standing up, I’ma face my demons

I’m manning up, I’ma hold my ground

I’ve had enough, now I’m so fed up

Time to put my life back together right now! (now)

It was my decision to get clean, I did it for me

Admittedly, I probably did it subliminally

For you, so I could come back a brand new me you helped see me through

And don’t even realize what you did, believe me you

I been through the ringer, but they could do little to the middle finger

I think I got a tear in my eye, I feel like the king of

My world, haters can make like bees with no stingers

And drop dead, no more beef flingers

No more drama from now on, I promise

To focus solely on handling my responsibilities as a father

So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof, like my daughters

And raise it, you couldn’t lift a single shingle on it!

Cause the way I feel, I’m strong enough to go to the club

Or the corner pub, and lift the whole liquor counter up

Cause I’m raising the bar

I’d shoot for the moon but I’m too busy gazing at stars

I feel amazing and I’m

[Chorus]
