THE BLACK CROWES

"She Talks To Angels"

She never mentions the word addiction

In certain company

Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan

After you meet her family

 

She paints her eyes as black as night now

Pulls those shades down tight

Yeah, she gives a smile when the pain come

The pain gonna make everything alright

 

Says she talks to angels

They call her out by her name

Oh yeah, she talks to angels

Says they call her out by her name

 

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket

She wears a cross around her neck

Yes, the hair is from a little boy

And the cross is someone she has not met

Not yet

 

Says she talks to angels

Says they all know her name

Oh yeah, she talks to angels

Says they call her out by her name

 

She don't know no lover

None that I ever seen

Yeah, to her that ain't nothin'

But to me, yeah me

Means everything

 

She paints her eyes as black as night now

She pulls those shades down tight

Oh yeah, there's a smile when the pain comes

The pain gonna make everything alright

Alright, yeah heah

 

She talks to angels

Says they call her out by her name

Oh, yeah, heah, angels

Call her out by her name

Oh, ooh, oh, oh, angels

They call her out by her name

 

Oh, oh, oh, she talks to angels

They call her out

Yeah, ee, eah, eah, eah, eah

Call her out

Don't you know that they

Call her out by her name?

 

Keith Urban

"You're Not My God"

It's just a piece of paper, it says, "In God We Trust"

A little sure felt good

But a lot was not enough

And everybody loved me when I was on a roll

And I thought I had everything

When I held the gold

 

But you're not my god

And you're not my friend

You're not the one that I will walk with in the end

You're not the truth

You're a temporary shot

You ruin people's lives and you don't give a second thought

You're not my god

 

Little white lines on a mirror

Cut neatly in a roll

Medicine that kept me from lookin' in my soul

I thought you were the answer

To all of my despair

And you almost had me six feet down

But I'm still breathin' air

 

'Cause you're not my god

And you're not my friend

You're not the one that I will walk with in the end

You're not the truth

You're a temporary shot

You ruin people's lives and you don't give a second thought

You're not my god

 

From the cradle to the grave

Temptations all around

But no matter how good the fix

It's gonna take you down

Now some call it a weakness

Some call it a sin

But it's all the same behind each game

I see your evil grin

 

But you're not my god

And you're not my friend

You're not the one that I will walk with in the end

You're not the truth

You're a temporary shot

You ruin people's lives and you don't give a second thought

 

Whoa, you're not my god

And you're not my friend

You're not the one that I will walk with in the end

You're not the truth

You're a temporary shot

You ruin people's lives and you don't give a second thought

You're not my god

 

You're not my god

Oh oh oh you're not my god

You're not my god

Mmmmm not my god

Not my god

You're not, you're not, you're not my god

No you're not

 

Amy Winehouse

"Rehab"

They tried to make me go to rehab but I said, 'No, no, no.'

Yes, I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know

I ain't got the time and if my daddy thinks I'm fine

He's tried to make me go to rehab but I won't go, go, go

 

I'd rather be at home with ray

I ain't got seventy days

'Cause there's nothing

There's nothing you can teach me

That I can't learn from Mr Hathaway

 

I didn't get a lot in class

But I know it don't come in a shot glass

 

They tried to make me go to rehab but I said, 'No, no, no.'

Yes, I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know

I ain't got the time and if my daddy thinks I'm fine

He's tried to make me go to rehab but I won't go, go, go

 

The man said, 'Why do you think you're here?'

I said, 'I got no idea

I'm gonna, I'm gonna lose my baby

So I always keep a bottle near.'

He said, "I just think you're depressed."

This me "Yeah, baby, and the rest."

 

They tried to make me go to rehab but I said, 'No, no, no.'

Yes, I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know

 

I don't ever wanna drink again

I just, ooh, I just need a friend

I'm not gonna spend ten weeks

Have everyone think I'm on the mend

 

It's not just my pride

It's just 'til these tears have dried

 

They tried to make me go to rehab but I said, 'No, no, no.'

Yes, I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know

I ain't got the time and if my daddy thinks I'm fine

He's tried to make me go to rehab but I won't go, go, go

 

Linkin Park

"Crawling"

[Chester Bennington:]

Crawling in my skin

These wounds they will not heal

Fear is how I fall

Confusing what is real

 

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface

Consuming confusing

This lack of self-control I fear is never ending

Controlling I can't seem

 

[Chester Bennington (Mike Shinoda):]

To find myself again

My walls are closing in

(without a sense of confidence and I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take)

I've felt this way before

So insecure

 

[Chester Bennington:]

Crawling in my skin

These wounds they will not heal

Fear is how I fall

Confusing what is real

 

Discomfort endlessly has pulled itself upon me

Distracting reacting

Against my will I stand beside my own reflection

It's haunting how I can't seem

 

[Chester Bennington (Mike Shinoda):]

To find myself again

My walls are closing in

(without a sense of confidence and I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take)

I've felt this way before

So insecure

 

Crawling in my skin

These wounds they will not heal

Fear is how I fall

Confusing what is real

 

Crawling in my skin

These wounds they will not heal

Fear is how I fall

Confusing confusing what is real

 

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface consuming

Confusing what is real

This lack of self-control I fear is never ending controlling

Confusing what is real

 

Aerosmith

"Amazing"

I kept the right ones out

And let the wrong ones in

Had an angel of mercy to see me through all my sins

There were times in my life

When I was goin' insane

Tryin' to walk through

The pain

When I lost my grip

And I hit the floor

Yeah,I thought I could leave but couldn't get out the door

I was so sick and tired

Of livin' a lie

I was wishin that I

Would die

 

[Chorus:]

It's Amazing

With the blink of an eye you finally see the light

It's Amazing

When the moment arrives that you know you'll be alright

It's Amazing

And I'm sayin' a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight

 

That one last shot's a Permanent Vacation

And how high can you fly with broken wings?

Life's a journey not a destination

And I just can't tell just what tomorrow brings

 

You have to learn to crawl

Before you learn to walk

But I just couldn't listen to all that righteous talk, oh yeah

I was out on the street,

Just tryin' to survive

Scratchin' to stay

Alive

[Chorus]

 

Desperate hearts, desperate hearts
