Brett Eldredge – Wanna Be That Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
The radio and a sundress
Making my world all a mess
Back corner of a cornfield
Bottle tops and a true spear
Pull the lever, lay the seat back laughin’
You slippin’ off your shoes
While the dashboard speakers sing every word of Night Moves

[Chorus]
I wanna be that song that gets you high
Makes you dance, makes you fall
That melody rewinds years
Once disappear, makes time stall
Wanna be those words that fill you up
Pull your windows down and keeps you young
Makes you believe you’re right where you belong
I wanna be that song
I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be, wanna be that song
Oh, I wanna be, I wanna, I wanna
[Verse 2]
I wanna stand with you in the third row
Window booth at a bar
Back pew on a Sunday pourin’ out your heart
(pourin’ out your heart)
When the bleachers are crowded
When you’re sittin’ all alone
When the rain is pourin’ and you need something to take you home

[Chorus]
Let me be that song that gets you high
Makes you dance, makes you fall
That melody rewinds years
Once disappear, makes time stall
Wanna be those words that fill you up
Pull your windows down and keeps you young
Makes you believe you’re right where you belong
I wanna be that song
I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be, wanna be that song
Oh, I wanna be, I wanna, I wanna

[Bridge]
When you’re searching the horizon(searching the horizon)
When your eyes look back
When you’re standing in the moment
Every life has a soundtrack

[Chorus]
Oh I wanna be, I wanna be, oh I wanna be
I wanna be that song that gets you high
Makes you dance, makes you fall
That melody rewinds years
Once disappear, makes time stall
Wanna be those words that fill you up
Pull your windows down and keeps you young
Makes you believe you’re right where you belong
I wanna be that song

[Tag]
When the highway’s calling
When the bottle’s dry
When the sky is falling and you’re asking yourself why
Oh, oh, I wanna be,(wanna be,wanna be) yeah, oh

Luke Bryan – Move lyrics

[Verse 1]
Your mama packed y’all up and moved you to the south
Packed a U-Haul cross a one-tree yard
To a tin roof shotgun house
You didn’t know nobody, didn’t talk too much
Had a rocking little body with a yankee strut
A little shy side, a little wild side
With your long blonde hair all pulled up
Then you got in with some southern belles
Cut your jeans off with a rebel yell
Learned the talk of the Bible belt
Now, girl, I melt when you

[Chorus]
M-O-V-E, I love it
Yeah, I love it when you get that beat
Boots on, stomp your feet
It’s like you’ve been waiting all week
Move like you do
All sexy and smooth
Like you love to
Oh, girl, look at you
Legs and your hips
[?] moonlit
When that song hits
Damn, you turn it loose
Stars of the southern sky
Buzz of the fire and ice
DJ plays that throwback tune
But I can’t move when you move
[Verse 2]
It’s like there’s something in the air
That turns you wild when a country song
Is way up loud and the sun goes down
Right about then, you lock eyes on me
You got me where you want me, where I wanna be
All up in the middle of your left and right
Just side to side, yeah, you’re right on time when you

[Chorus]
M-O-V-E, I love it
Yeah, I love it when you get that beat
Boots on, stomp your feet
It’s like you’ve been waiting all week
Move like you do
All sexy and smooth
Like you love to
Oh, girl, look at you
Legs and your hips
Live oak moonlit
When that song hits
Damn, you turn it loose
Stars of the southern sky
Buzz of the fire and ice
DJ plays that throwback tune
And I can’t move when you move

[Bridge]
Let me talk to you
M-O-V-E
I love it when you, love it when you feel the beat
C-O-M-E
Come on, I wanna see you

[Chorus]
Move like you do
All sexy and smooth
Like you love to
Oh, girl, look at you
Legs and your hips
Live oak moonlit
When that song hits
Damn, you turn it loose
Stars of the southern sky
Buzz of the fire and ice
DJ playing throwback tunes
I wanna move when you
But I can’t move when you
No, I can’t move when you move
No, I can’t move when you move

Andra Day – Rise Up lyrics

You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry-go-round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains

And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
When the silence isn’t quiet
And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains
And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you

All we need, all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
We will rise
We will rise
We’ll rise, ohh ohhh
We’ll rise

I’ll rise up
Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousands times again
And we’ll rise up
Rise like the waves
We’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
We’ll rise up
And we’ll do it a thousands times again
For you ohhhh ohhh ohh ohhh ohh
For you ohhhh ohhh ohh ohhh ohh
For you ohhhh ohhh ohh ohhh ohh

Zedd – Ignite lyrics

[Verse 1]
There’s a fire that burns inside
It’s an instinct that never lies
The target’s tattooed between our eyes

[Pre-Chorus]
Stand and fight
Under the lights on the high stage
A part of your life it can take away
Just like the blood running through your veins
[Chorus]
Everyone’s watching through your eyes
There’s only two options
Win or die, win or die
Win or die, die, die, die, die
It went from a spark to an open flame
Now destiny’s calling out your name
So reply, so reply

[Post-Chorus]
And ignite
Ignite
Ignite
Ignite

[Verse 2]
There’s a power that’s underneath
And you can’t see it ’til you believe
On the edge of infinity

[Pre-Chorus]
Feel the rush
Under the lights on the high stage
A part of your life it can take away
Just like the blood running through your veins

[Chorus]
Everyone’s watching through your eyes
There’s only two options
Win or die, win or die
Win or die, die, die, die, die
It went from a spark to an open flame
Now destiny’s calling out your name
So reply, so reply

[Post-Chorus]
And ignite
Ignite
Ignite
Ignite

[Outro]
It went from a spark to an open flame
Now destiny’s calling out your name
So ignite, so ignite

Jason Aldean – A Little More lyrics

They boarded up this water town
Ain’t nobody hanging ’round
Another grey September day
Was I crazy to think she’d stay

If that sun would have just
Hung up in that sky
Just a little bit yeah
Just a little bit longer
If those blue water waves
Could’ve stayed at our feet on the beach
Instead of going out with the tide
If that wind was a friend
It’d still be blowing in
Like a warm southern whisper on her
She might have stayed forever
And never ever left these arms
If only I
Had a little more summertime
I brace myself against the cold
And let her memory take hold
Stirring that old fire up
As if I don’t miss her enough

If that sun would have just
Hung up in that sky
Just a little yeah
Just a little bit longer
If those blue water waves
Could’ve stayed at her feet on the beach
Instead of going out with the tide
If that wind was a friend
It’d still be blowing in
Like a warm southern whisper on her
She might have stayed forever
And never ever left these arms
If only I
Had a little more summertime
Just a little more summertime

If that sun would have just
Hung up in that sky
Just a little yeah
Just a little bit longer
She might have stayed forever
And never ever left these arms
If only I
Had a little more summertime

Pink – Just Like Fire lyrics

[Verse 1]
I know that I am runnin’ out of time
I want it all, mmm, mmm
And I’m wishin’ they’d stop tryin’ to turn me off
I want it on, mmm, mmm
And I’m walkin’ on a wire, tryin’ to go higher
Feels like I’m surrounded by clowns and liars
Even when I give it all away
I want it all, mmm, mmm

[Pre-Chorus]
We came here to run it, run it, run it
We came here to run it, run it, run it
[Chorus]
Just like fire, burnin’ up the way
If I could light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I’ll be flyin’ free
I’mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me anyway
Just like fire, uh

[Verse 2]
And people like to laugh at you cause they are all the same, mmm, mmm
See I would rather we just go a different way than play the game
And no matter the weather, we can do it better
You and me together, forever and ever
We don’t have to worry ’bout a thing, ’bout a thing

[Pre-Chorus]
We came here to run it, run it, run it
We came here to run it, run it, run it

[Chorus]
Just like fire, burnin’ up the way
If I could light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I’ll be flyin’ free
I’mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me anyway
Just like fire, fire, fire
Run it, run it, run it
We came here to run it, run it, run it

[Verse 3]
So look, I came here to run it
Just cause nobody’s done it
Y’all don’t think I can run it
But look, I been here, I done it
Impossible? Please
Watch, I do it with ease
You just gotta believe
Come uh, come uh with me
Oh, what’s a girl to do?
(What, what?)
Hey, what’s a girl to do?
(What, what?)
Oh, what’s a girl to do?
(What, what?)
Mmmm, what’s a girl to do?

[Bridge: Acoustic]
Just like fire, burnin’ up the way
If I could light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way

[Chorus]
Just like fire, burnin’ up the way
If I could light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I’ll be flyin’ free
I’mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me anyway
Just like fire, fire

[Outro]
Run it, run it, run it
Just like fire
Run it, run it, run it

Disturbed – The Sound Of Silence lyrics

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed
By the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening

People writing songs
That voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

“Fools” said I, “you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach to you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming

And the sign said
“The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls”
And whispered in the sound of silence

Solange – Cranes In The Sky lyrics

[Verse 1]
I tried to drink it away
I tried to put one in the air
I tried to dance it away
I tried to change it with my hair

[Verse 2]
I ran my credit card bill up
Thought a new dress would make it better
I tried to work it away
But that just made me even sadder
[Verse 3]
I tried to keep myself busy
I ran around in circles
Think I made myself dizzy
I slept it away, I sexed it away
I read it away

[Refrain 1]
Away, away, away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away, away

[Hook 1]
Well it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds
Yeah, it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds

[Verse 4]
I tried to run it away
Thought then my head be feeling clearer
I traveled 70 states
Thought moving round make me feel better

[Verse 5]
I tried to let go my lover
Thought if I was alone then maybe I could recover
To write it away or cry it away
Don’t you cry baby

[Refrain 1]
Away, away, away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away, away

[Hook 2]
But it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds
Yeah, it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal…

Away, away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away, away

Solange – Interlude: Dad Was Mad lyrics

I was the first, one of the first. My first day, a state trooper caught me, put me in the backseat of the car, and meeting the other black kids, was six of us. And seeing all of those parents, and also KKK members having signs and throwing cans at us, spitting at us. We lived in the threat of death every day. Every day. So I was just lost in this vacuum between integration and segregation and, and racism. That was my childhood. I was angry for years… angry, very angry

Solange – Don’t You Wait lyrics

[Verse 1]
I gave it all away that night, it was taking a little time, oh
I gave it all I got but now you better know that I know for sure, oh

[Refrain]
You made my bed, dealt with it when the lights went out
Now looking back for temporary nothings
But I bet on it, you’ll all be here when the lights come out
Still looking for nothing
[Pre-Chorus]
I gave it all I got to know now
I don’t want no part of it no longer, no longer
Looked around this place enough to know now
I don’t want to waste the time to know you, to know you

Don’t you wait for me
Don’t you wait for me
Don’t you wait for me
Don’t you wait for me

[Verse 2]
Now, I don’t want to bite the hand that’ll show me the other side, no
But I didn’t want to build the land that has fed you your whole life, no
Don’t you find it funny?

You made my bed, dealt with it when the lights went out
Now looking back for temporary nothings
But I bet on it, you’ll all be here when the lights come out
Still looking for nothing

Solange – Interlude: Tina Taught Me lyrics

[Spoken Word Interlude: Tina Lawson]
I think part of it is accepting that it’s so much beauty in being Black and that’s the thing that, I guess, I get emotional about because I’ve always known that. I’ve always been proud to be Black. Never wanted to be nothing else. Loved everything about it, just…

It’s such beauty in Black people, and it really saddens me when we’re not allowed to express that pride in being Black, and that if you do, then it’s considered anti-white. No! You just pro-black. And that’s okay. The two don’t go together. Because you celebrate Black culture does not mean that you don’t like white culture or that you putting it down. It’s just taking pride in it, but what’s irritating is when somebody says, you know, “They’re racist!”, “That’s reverse racism!” or, “They have a Black History Month, but we don’t have a White History Month!”
Well, all we’ve ever been taught is white history. So, why are you mad at that? Why does that make you angry? That is to suppress me and to make me not be proud

Solange – Don’t Touch My Hair lyrics

[Verse 1: Solange]
Don’t touch my hair
When it’s the feelings I wear
Don’t touch my soul
When it’s the rhythm I know
Don’t touch my crown
They say the vision I’ve found
Don’t touch what’s there
When it’s the feelings I wear

[Pre-Hook: Solange]
They don’t understand
What it means to me
Where we chose to go
Where we’ve been to know
They don’t understand
What it means to me
Where we chose to go
Where we’ve been to know
[Hook: Solange]
You know this hair is my shit
Rode the ride, I gave it time
But this here is mine
You know this hair is my shit
Rode the ride, I gave it time
But this here is mine

[Post-Hook 1: Sampha & Both]
What you say, oh?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?

[Verse 2: Solange]
Don’t touch my pride
They say the glory’s all mine
Don’t test my mouth
They say the truth is my sound

[Pre-Hook: Solange]
They don’t understand
What it means to me
Where we chose to go
Where we’ve been to know
They don’t understand
What it means to me
Where we chose to go
Where we’ve been to know

[Hook: Solange]
You know this hair is my shit
Rode the ride, I gave it time
But this here is mine
You know this hair is my shit
Rode the ride, I gave it time
But this here is mine

[Post-Hook 2: Sampha & Both]
What you say, oh?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?

[Instrumental Break]

[Outro: Both]
What you say to me?
What you say to me?

What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?
What you say to me?

Solange – This Moment lyrics

If you don’t understand us and understand what we’ve been through, then you probably wouldn’t understand what this moment is about. This is home. This is where we from. This is where we belong

And if it ain’t for the better of the people, nah, ’cause you, you robbing and stealing from the people that been there for so many years, not just come and destroy, and knocking our neighborhoods down. You know, when they come here, you invisible. You know, you don’t even have a number in the system. Nobody cares about you. Everything is about dollars and cents, you know, even when you’re talking the government, you know, even when you’re talking about the, the, the preachers and the people that’s running the community. And we have to show them the evolution of where we come from. I’m about to send a message to the world, like…

Solange – Interlude: For Us By Us lyrics

[Interlude: Master P]
And they offered me a million dollar deal, and had the check ready. Said I wouldn’t be able to use my name. I was fighting my brother, because “Man, you shoulda took the million dollars!” I said “No, what you think I’m worth? If this white man offer me a million dollars I gotta be worth forty, or fifty… Or ten or something.”
To being able to make “Forbes” and come from the Projects. You know, “Top 40 Under 40.” Which they said couldn’t be done. Had twenty records on the top “Billboard” at one time. For an independent company. Black-owned company. You know, going to the white lady’s house where my Grandmother lived at, and say, “Look, you don’t have to work here no more Big Mama! We got more money than the people on St. Charles Street.”
And I, I took that anger and said, “I’mma put it into my music.” I tell people all the time, “If you don’t understand my record, you don’t understand me, so this is not for you.”

Solange – F.U.B.U. lyrics

[Intro: Solange]
One for us

[Chorus 1: Solange]
All my niggas in the whole wide world
All my niggas in the whole wide world
Made this song to make it all y’all’s turn
For us, this shit is for us
[Chorus 2: Solange]
All my niggas let the whole world know
Play this song and sing it on your terms
For us, this shit is for us
Don’t try to come for us

[Chorus 3: Solange]
All my niggas got the whole wide world
Tell them niggas that it’s all our turn
This us, some shit is a must
Some shit is for us

[Verse 1: Solange]
When you know you gotta pay the cost
Play the game just to play the boss
So you thinking what you gained, you lost
But you know your shit is taking off, oh
When you driving in your tinted car
And you’re criminal, just who you are
But you know you’re gonna make it far, oh

[Verse 2: Solange]
When you feeling all alone
And you can’t even be you up in your home
When you even feeling it from your own
When you got it figured out
When a nigga tryna board the plane
And they ask you, “What’s your name again?”
Cause they thinking, “Yeah, you’re all the same.”
Oh, it’s for us

[Chorus 4: Solange]
All my niggas in the whole wide world
Made this song to make it all y’all’s turn
For us, this shit is for us
Some shit is a must
This shit is for us

[Verse 3: Solange]
When it’s going on a thousand years
And you pulling up to your crib
And they ask you where you live again
But you running out of damns to give, oh
I hope my son will bang this song so loud
That he almost makes his walls fall down
Cause his momma wants to make him proud
Oh, to be us

[Chorus 5: Solange]
And all my niggas in the whole wide world
Made this song to make it all y’alls turn
For us
This shit is for us
Sometimes we don’t trust
This shit is for us

[Verse 4: BJ the Chicago Kid and The-Dream]
And we bomb on sight, on sight we must charge
Host of my emotion, it’s your call
Liquor in my system, we must crawl
Addiction, disobey the law
Don’t clip my wings before I learn to fly
I didn’t come back down to Earth to die

[Chorus 6: Solange]
All my niggas in the whole wide world
Made this song to make it all y’all’s turn
For us, this shit is from us
Get so much from us
Then forget us

[Chorus 7: Solange]
Don’t feel bad if you can’t sing along
Just be glad you got the whole wide world
This us
This shit is from us
Some shit you can’t touch

[Outro: All]
Ooh, oh baby
For us baby
Yeah
It’s all for us baby
Nobody else, baby
All for us baby

[Intro]
We been lovers on a mission
We been lovers on a mission (All the way)
But what’s love without a mission?
We been lovers on a mission (All the way)

And I know I gotta go ahead and take some time

A safe place tonight
Let’s play it safe tonight
Baby, we’ve, we’ve been lovers on a mission (All the way)
So let’s take an intermission

Solange – Junie lyrics

[Intro: Nia Andrews and Kelly Rowland]
…have it, yeah

[Verse 1: Solange]
First one’s a fool, who’ll be the fool now?
Who’s gonna get in line?
First one to go, first one to fight the way
Let’s go to moonlight, then they will never find
Let’s go to home, free from the mother mind
Come on along, along, along, along, along, along, along
[Chorus 1: André 3000]
Jump on it
Jump on it, on it
Jump on it
Jump on it

[Verse 2: Solange]
Hit ’em with a left
Hit ’em with they knock, knock
Hit ’em with a play
Then away, and away, and away, and away

[Verse 3: Solange]
Hit ’em with a knock, knock
Hit ’em on the top
Hit ’em when they flock, flock
Hit ’em with a shock, shock
Then away, and away, and away, and away

[Verse 4: Solange]
Hit ’em when they watch
Hit ’em with a dot, dot, dot, dot, dot
Then I’m up, up, up and away, and away, and away, and away

[Verse 5: Solange]
Hit ’em when they watch
Hit ’em when they cop, cop, cop what you got
Then away, and away, and away, and away, and away, and away

[Chorus 2: André 3000]
Jump on it
Jump on it, on it
Jump on it

[Verse 6: Solange]
You want to be the teacher
Don’t want to go to school
Don’t want to do the dishes
Just want to eat the food

[Outro: Solange]
But what you gonna do
When they saw all your moves and practiced em daily?
Protect your neck, or give invitations?

Solange – Don’t Wish Me Well lyrics

[Verse 1]
I went away
This concrete don’t have love for me
I took a day
Too much talk and not much to see
I know you always speak on something
So I’ll leave on the mic for you

[Chorus]
And I’m going all the way
But I’ll leave on the lights for you
Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah
In going all the way
And now you’re almost out of view
Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah
[Post-Chorus 1]
‘Cause when I say what I mean, you ought to know
You’ve got to know
I don’t let it go
‘Cause when I say what I mean, you ought to know
You’ve got to know
I won’t let it go
Away, away, away

[Verse 2]
Look what remains
Pour ashes where they claimed my name
They say I changed
But a pity if I stayed the same
Thinking that everything is funny
But don’t say that the jokes on you

[Chorus]
And I’m going all the way
But I’ll leave on the lights for you
Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah
I’m going all the way
And now you’re almost out of view
Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah, oh woah

[Post-Chorus 2]
‘Cause when I say what I mean, you ought to know
You’ve got to know
I won’t let it go
Away, away, away, away

Solange – Interlude: Pedestals lyrics

[Spoken Word Interlude: Master P]
But man, I done been through it all, so I, I said, “I wanna tell my story.” ‘Cause I never cried or nothing, and that’s where the “Make ’em say uhh uhh,” that’s like my pain. That’s basically what it is. That’s my battle cry. Think about it. None of us are perfect. We live in an imperfect world
You know, only God can judge me, that’s how I look at it. The people that’s sitting around pointing their fingers, imagine all the stuff they’re probably doing. Whether you’re police officers, doctors, lawyers, presidents, whatever, you got good and bad in everything. You know, we’re putting people on a pedestal that’s just a human like us. You know, I mean, they got more drugs in the rich neighborhoods than they got in the hood. A lot of their kids dying from overdose and things like that, think about it. Black kids have to figure it out! We don’t have rehabs to go to. You gotta rehab yourself. But for us, you can’t pull the plug on us and tell us it’s over. Not me!

Solange – Scales lyrics

[Chorus: Solange & Kelela]
Candy red things gonna spin
With that big body, boy, you’re bound to win
And that armor in your mouth
You’re gonna shine
Your wrist talking, boy, it’s only time
Put the incense on
Cover up the smell
And if your boys go down, I know you’ll never tell
You’re a superstar
You’re a superstar
Always shining in the night
And your skin glowing in the moonlight

[Verse: Solange]
The streets say you’re a king
The world says you’re a failure
And your mother is a queen
But damn she always tells ya
“You gon’ end up like your daddy
But damn that nigga fresh
So if it all comes out to plan
You gon’ end up like the best.”
You say, “Look on the TV… they all want to be me.”
For nothing, whatever it’s worth, it’s something
Ain’t no apologizing, for all of the things you want
So if dreams only go so far
They’ll come to where you are
[Chorus: Solange & Kelela]
Candy red things gonna spin
With that big body, boy, you’re bound to win
And that armor in your mouth
You’re gonna shine
Your wrist talking, boy, it’s only time
Put the incense on
Cover up the smell
And if your boys go down, I know you’ll never tell
You’re a superstar
You’re a superstar
Always shining in the night
And your skin glowing in the moonlight

[Outro: Kelela]
Your love is kind
Your love is kind
But your love ain’t blind
Your world is kind
Your world is kind
But your world ain’t blind

Solange – Closing: The Chosen Ones lyrics

[Spoken Word Interlude: Master P]
That’s what make my life complete, knowing that it’s a higher being, a higher power, knowing that these people done paved they way. You know, our great-great-grandfathers and grandmothers that came here, they found some kind of way to make the rhythm. You know, and they kept rhythm, no matter what
Now, we come here as slaves, but we going out as royalty, and able to show that we are truly the chosen ones

Tim Rice – Joseph’s Dreams (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) lyrics

Narrator
Joseph’s coat annoyed his brothers
Brothers
But what makes us mad
Are the things that Joseph tells us of the
Dreams he’s often had
Joseph
I dreamed that in the fields one day
The corn gave me a sign
Your eleven sheaves of corn
All turned and bowed to mine
My sheaf was quite a sight to see
A golden sheaf and tall
Yours were green and second-rate
And really rather small
~ Brothers ~
Small! This is not the kind of thing
We brothers like to hear
It seems to us that Joseph and his
Dreams should disappear
~ Joseph ~
I dreamed I saw eleven stars
The sun the moon and sky
Bowing down before my star,
It made me wonder why
Could it be that I was born
For higher things than you?
A post in someone’s government
A ministry or two
~ Brothers ~
The dreams of our dear brother are
The decade’s biggest yawn
His talk of stars and golden sheaves
Is just a load of corn
Not only is he tactless but
He’s also rather dim
For there’s eleven of us and
There’s only one of him
The dreams of course will not come true
That is, we think they won’t come true
That is, we hope they won’t come true
What if he’s right all along?
The dreams are more than crystal clear
The writing on the wall
Means that Joseph some day soon
Will rise above us all
The accuracy of the dreams
We brothers do not know
But one thing we are sure about;
The dreamer, dreamer, the dreamer, dreamer, the dreamer,
Dreamer, the dreamer, dreamer, the dreamer, dreamer, dreamer,
Dreamer, dreamer has to go!

Tim Rice – Good Night And Thank You (Evita) lyrics

Ché: Goodnight and thank you, Magaldi
You’ve completed your task
What more could we ask of you now?

Please sign the book on your way out the door
That will be all
If we need you, we’ll call
But I don’t think its likely somehow

Eva: Oh, but it’s sad when a love affair dies
The parting, the closing of doors
But we must be honest, stop fooling ourselves

Ché: Which means “Up yours!”

Ché & Eva: There is no one, no one at all
Never has been and never will be a lover
Male or female
Who hasn’t an eye on
In fact they rely on
Tricks they can try on their partner
They’re hoping their lover will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don’t blame them
You’re the same

Ché: Goodnight and thank you, whoever
She’s in every magazine
Been photographed, seen, she is known
We don’t like to rush but your case has been packed
If we’ve missed anything, you could give us a ring
But we don’t always answer the phone

Eva: Oh, but it’s sad when a love affair dies
But when we were hot, we were hot
I know you’ll look back on the good times we shared

Ché: But Eva will not!

Ché, Eva, and Eva’s suitors: There is no one, no one at all
Never has been and never will be a lover
Male or female
Who hasn’t an eye on
In fact they rely on
Tricks they can try on their partner
They’re hoping their lover will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don’t blame them
You’re the same

Ché: Goodnight and thank you, whoever
She’s in every magazine
Been photographed, seen, she is known
We don’t like to rush but your case has been packed
If we’ve missed anything, you could give us a ring
But we don’t always answer the phone

Eva: Oh, but it’s sad when a love affair dies
But when we were hot, we were hot
I know you’ll look back on the good times we shared

Ché: But Eva will not!

Ché, Eva, and Eva’s suitors: There is no one, no one at all
Never has been and never will be a lover
Male or female
Who hasn’t an eye on
In fact they rely on
Tricks they can try on their partner
They’re hoping their lover will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don’t blame them
You’re the same

Ché: Goodnight and thank you, whoever
We are grateful you’ve found
Her a spot on the sound radio
We’ll think of you every time she’s on the air
We’d love you to stay
But you’d be in the way
So do up your trousers and go

Eva: Oh, but it’s sad when a love affair dies
The decline into silence and doubt
Our passion was just too intense to survive

Ché: For God’s sake, get out!

Eva’s suitors: Oh but this line’s an embarrassing sight
Someone has made us look fools
Argentine men call the sexual shots
Someone has altered the rules

Ché: Fame on the wireless as far as it goes
It’s all very well, but every girl knows
She needs a man she can monopolize
With fingers in dozens of different pies

Eva’s suitors: Oh, but it’s sad when a love affair dies

Tim Rice – Any Dream Will Do (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) lyrics

Joseph
I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain
To see for certain what I thought I knew
Far far away, someone was weeping
But the world was sleeping
Any dream will do

Joseph & Children
I wore my coat, with golden lining
Bright colors shining, wonderful and new
And in the east, the dawn was breaking
And the world was waking
Any dream will do
Joseph
A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colors faded into darkness
I was left alone
Joseph & Children
May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do

Joseph
A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colors faded into darkness
I was left alone

Joseph & Children
May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do

Tim Rice – Angel In Heaven (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) lyrics

Father we’ve something to tell you, a story of our time. A tragic but
Inspiring tale, of manhood in its prime. You know you had a dozen sons?
Well now that’s, not quite true. But feel no sorrow, do not grieve, he
Would not want you to.

There’s one more Angel in Heaven, there’s one more star in the sky.
Joseph we’ll never forget you. It’s tough but we’re gonna get by.

There’s one less place at our table. There’s one more tear in my eye.
But Joseph the things that you stood fer, like truth and light never die.
When I think of his last great battle, a lump comes to my throat.
It takes a man who knows no fear to wrestle with a goat.
His blood-stained coat is tribute to his final sacrifice. His body may
Be past it’s peak but his soul’s in paradise.

So long little Jo!
Adios Buckeroo!
Ten four good buddy…

There’s one less place at our table. There’s one more tear in my eye.
But Joseph the things that you stood fer, like truth and light never die!
Carve his name with pride and courage, let no tear be shead.
If he had not laid down his life, we all would now be dead.
