Lyrics

I ain’t got style like a magazine
No my shoes don’t shine
I ain’t got pride like a beauty queen
Can’t even walk a straight line
Somebody say the best things in life are on the inside
Say my name all my love’s in vain in the welfare line

Nobody told me there’d be days like these
There’s gotta be something more than misery
It’s the salt that stings

As good as it gets
I want the sunshine
As good as it gets
Champagne all the time
As good as it gets
I’ll live on wine and roses
So hold me closer
Until I break a sweat
It ain’t as good as it gets

I’m working on dreams
Call ‘em jelly beans
They make me laugh out loud
When the crowd screams
It is good indeed
And makes my mama proud

Somebody say the best things in life get ‘em while I can
Say my name I think it’s gonna rain I got to find my man
Nobody told me where the sun’s gonna shine
Heaven is only when the good’s inside
Right before I die

As good as it gets
I want the sunshine
As good as it gets
Champagne all the time
As good as it gets
I’ll live on wine and roses
So hold me closer
Until I break a sweat
It ain’t as good as it gets

Somebody say

Wanna break out wanna break out
Won’t you let me in
Wanna make out wanna make out
Fill my cup again
I wanna break out I wanna break out
Won’t you let me in
I wanna make out I wanna make out
Fill my cup again to the fucking rim

As good as it gets
I want the sunshine
As good as it gets
Champagne all the time
As good as it gets
I want the sunshine
As good as it gets
Champagne all the time
I’ll live on wine and roses
So hold me closer
If I don’t break a sweat
It ain’t as good as it gets

As good as it gets
Somebody say
As good as it gets
If I don’t break a sweat
It ain’t as good as it gets

Writer & Composer: Beth Hart

Love is cold hard and cruel
Yeah on the way down
When a man just don’t want you
No part of you around
Love is cold hard and cruel
Yeah on the way down
All the way down

I ain’t no soldier ain’t no saviour
I ain’t no winner and I ain’t that proud
I’m just a woman a jealous woman
Who wants to love you love you out loud

But she is so pretty
She is a beauty she is a lady
Laughing in the clouds

Jealousy look what you’ve done to me
Jealousy look what you’ve done
Jealousy look what you’ve done to me
Now she’s loving you not me

If I could take back
You know I would take back
Every mistake in my face
I would try harder try and be stronger
I would love longer in every way
But she is so lovely

She’s like a painting in the garden
I can’t catch my breath

Jealousy look what you’ve done to me
Jealousy look what you’ve done
Jealousy look what you’ve done to me
Now she’s loving you not me

Love is cold hard and cruel
Yeah on the way down
When a man just don’t want you
No part of you around
Love is cold hard and cruel
Yeah on the way down
All the way down

Oh Father come together
My sisters and all my brothers
Apathy getting crazy
Help me understand
There’s water there fire
Which one should I aspire
Compassion or reaction
What will command

Reach out and hold me
Reach out and bite my hand

I’m like a one-eyed chicken and a two-legged dog
Shrinking heads in the chicken then I piss on the lawn
I’m not the kind of woman that you want to take home
Only heaven knows a devils pain
I just can’t change

I’m digging digging digging digging digging on you
Digging digging digging digging digging on me
We’re digging digging digging digging digging are we
What we’re gonna do

Oh Father make it better
Make my love shine bigger than ever
Tell Jesus never leave us this is my prayer
There’s kindness there’s cruelty
A little bit of both inside of me
Come love me come heal me
Make me aware

Reach out and hold me
Reach out and bite my hand

I’m like a one eyed-chicken and a two-legged dog
Shrinking heads in the chicken then I piss on the lawn
I’m not the kind of woman that you want to take home
Only heaven knows a devils shame
I just can’t change

So glad you made it or I’d be nothing at all
I’m tired and faded I’m like a wrecking ball

I’m like a one-eyed chicken and a two-legged dog
Shrinking heads in the chicken then I piss on the lawn
I’m not the kind of woman that you want to take home
Only heaven knows a devils pain
I just can’t change

I just can’t change

I’m digging digging digging digging digging on you
Digging digging digging digging digging on me
We’re digging digging digging digging digging are we
What we’re gonna do

Lonelier tonight than a sinking stone
And I can hardly breathe
I am drowning in the dark
Wrong is never right still I’m breaking bones
And every part of me
Hear the pounding of my heart

Mama I can hardly wait
To take a little chance on fate
Chew it up and spit it out
Finally see what love’s about

I’m living loving laughing over you
Tossing turning trying over you
Kicking screaming crying over you
Wanting needing dying to get over you

Mama always said that you’ll know better
When you do grow up
All that you got to do is breath
Take a little look inside yourself
And see what turns you on
And then you will finally see

Mama I can hardly wait
To take a little chance of fate
Kick it up into the sky
Finally see what love feels like

I’m living loving laughing over you
Tossing turning trying over you
Kicking screaming crying over you
Wanting needing dying to get over you

Lay me down under the covers
‘Cause this life makes me sick

I beg your attention from my generation
This is all your fault
You feed me distractions and sell misdirections
This is all your fault

The blind are trying to lead the way
It’s time someone had something to say
But nothing changes we’re all strangers
Faces in the crowd
If these are the choices we get from our voices
Then you can count me out

Lay me down over the ocean
Where the good life still exits
Lay me down under the covers
‘Cause this life makes me sick

We’re alienated suppressed and sedated
This is all your fault
Don’t want compensation from your hate corporation
This is all your fault

The lost are trying to lead the way
The cost is left for us to pay
But nothing changes we’re all strangers
Faces in the crowd
If these are the choices we get from our voices
Then you can count me out

Lay me down over the ocean
Where the good life still exits
Lay me down under the covers
‘Cause this life makes me sick
It makes me
It makes me
It makes me
Sick

I beg your attention from my generation
This is all your fault
I am not discouraged or the slightest bit nervous
You’ve been voted out

You’re going down motherfucker

Lay me down over the ocean
Where the good life still exits
Lay me down under the covers
‘Cause this life makes me
Lay me down over the ocean
Where the good life still exits
Lay me down under the covers
‘Cause this life makes me sick
It makes me
It makes me
It makes me
Sick

Are you liar or are you a thief
Are you a dog ‘cause I am the leash
Are you a son or are you a bitch
I am your god the scratch you can’t itch

Face forward son
Face forward son
You are your gun

I beat you down your back I will break
I’ll make you beg I’ll make your soul shake
This ain’t no nursery so kiss that floor
This is your life the American core

Face forward son
Face forward son
Face forward son
Face forward son
You are your gun

Are you a son or are you a bitch
I am your God the scratch you can’t itch

When you cant find the light
That got you through a cloudy day
When the stars ain’t shining bright
You feel like you’ve lost your way
When those candle lights of home
Burn so very far away
Well you got to let your soul shine
Just like my mama used to say

She used to say soulshine
It’s better than sunshine
It’s better than moonshine
Damn sure better than rain
And if the people don’t mind
We all feel this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine through the break of day

Growing up I thought I had it made
I could make it on my own
But life can take the strongest man
Make him feel so alone
Now sometimes I feel the cold wind
Blowing through my aching bones
I think back to what my daddy said
He said girl it’s the darkest before the dawn<

Let your soul shine
It’s better than sunshine
It’s better than moonshine
Damn sure better than rain
And if the people don’t mind
We all feel this way sometimes
You got to let your soul shine
Shine through the break of day

Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness
Like a woman has shot down to his very soul
A woman too God knows she can feel like this
And when the world seems cold
You got to let your spirit take control

You got to let your soul shine
It’s better than sunshine
It’s better than moonshine
Damn sure better than rain
And if the people don’t mind
We all feel this way sometimes
You got to let your soul shine
Shine through the break of day
You got to let your soul shine
Shine through the break of day

It was you and me sitting in an apple tree
At the summers end we were only 17
We held on so tight that September night
Then you promised me

We’re never getting older
We’re never gonna be that way
Remember when I told ya
We would make it out someday
Let them say we’re crazy ‘cause we’ve already won
When you promised me we’d be forever young

I got your letter I can’t seem to put it down
It makes it better to have a piece of you around
They’re all just strangers their words don’t mean a thing
I swear I’ll die here I swear that I’d do anything
To be back again at the summer’s end
When you promised me

We’re never getting older
We’re never gonna be that way
Remember when I told ya
We would make it out someday
Let them say we’re crazy ‘cause we’ve already won
When you promised me we’d be forever

Sooner or later times gets the best of you
I should have known better you gotta do what you gotta do
If I had me a river I’d sit and watch it run by
I’d never let it run dry I’m never gonna say goodbye

We’re never getting older
We’re never gonna be that way
Remember when I told ya
We would make it out someday
They still say we’re crazy and I still say we won
When you promised me we’d be forever young

Forever young
Forever young
Forever young
Forever young
Forever young

Go on and crash the car
Take the keys I won’t get far
Nowhere will do just fine
Here I am again beginning at another end
There’s no turning back this time

Don’t let me down
I need you now
To make it easy
Dying ain’t that hard
So in a little while
I’m gonna make it easy

The sweet sunshine won’t let me be
A good man wants to marry me
I burn my house to the ground
Wine and roses and a symphony
The best things in life are terrifying me
I break my heart every time

Don’t let me down
I need you now
To make it easy
Dying ain’t that hard
So in a little while
I’m gonna make it easy

Do you want the good news
Or the bad news
Do you want the good things
No you want everything
Keep your possessions
I’ve made my decision
And it was easy, easy
I’ve waited for this all my life

Don’t let me down
I need you now
To make it easy
Dying ain’t that hard
So in a little while
I’m gonna make it easy

I need you now to make it easy
Dying ain’t that hard
So in a little while
I’m gonna make it easy
Make it easy
Make it easy
Make it easy

Hell is on the TV
The world I know is screaming
What a way to cut me down
Everything is shaking
No give and only taking
If I could only kill that sound

If there is anyone still up there
Won’t you take a good look around
Please heaven look down

She will never go to school today
Or know the home or know the way
Doesn’t she deserve a chance
Her daddy can’t keep from drinking
His heart had drowned and it’s sinking
Something come and save that man

If there is anyone still up there
Won’t you take a good look around
When will heaven look down

And don’t don’t don’t don’t leave
And don’t don’t don’t don’t leave
I’m begging you God please
Down on broken knees
If you can hear me now
Take a good look around
Then heaven look down

And I don’t really know the way out
And I don’t think that I can take it anymore

Hell is on the tv
The world I know is screaming
What a way to cut me down

And don’t don’t don’t don’t leave
And don’t don’t don’t don’t leave
I’m begging you God please
Don’t leave don’t leave
Don’t don’t don’t don’t leave
I’m begging you God please
Down on broken knees
If you can hear me now
Take a good look around
And now take a good look around
And heaven look down

No more scars no more stones
No more words I can’t take it no more
No more bullets no country hypocrisy
Can’t take it no more
Your promises wash away like rain

And I’ll be missing you
I’ll be missing you
I don’t want to fight no more
I’ll be missing you

No more danger your angers
The stranger I can’t take it no more
No more ruthless excuses they’re useless
I can’t take it no more
We’re only children after all, all

But I’ll be missing you
I’ll be missing you
I don’t want to fight no more
I don’t want to fight
I’ll be missing you

We’re only children after all
I swear I saw you needing me
We’re only children after
Children after
Children after all

No more scars no more stones
No more words I can’t take it no more
No more ruthless excuses they’re useless
I can’t take it no more

And I’ll be missing you
I’ll be missing you
I don’t want to fight no more
I’ll be missing you
I’ll be missing you
I don’t want to fight no more
I don’t want to fight
I’ll be missing you
I’ll be missing you
I’ll be missing you

Roll the top down
Feel the dark
Whole I’m not now
Kill it apart

Years are running by like these old roads
Tears are falling down like waterfalls
Like water

Roll the top down
Feel the dark
Whole I’m not now
Kill it apart

Years are running by like these old roads
Tears are falling down like waterfalls
Like water

Shadow boxer
Save some for me
Ever after
I don’t believe

Years are rolling by like these old roads
Tears are falling down like waterfalls
Like water

Years are running by like these old roads
Tears are falling down like waterfalls
Water

Mama don’t, don’t gimme none
Don’t gimme none of that lip
Gotta get me some before the devils comes
Gotta get me some of that shit

 

Mama don’t, don’t gimme none
Don’t gimme none of that lip
Gotta get me some before the devils comes
Gotta get me some of that shit

Years are rolling by like these old roads
Tears are falling down like waterfalls
Like water

Years are rolling by like these old roads
Tears are falling down like waterfalls
Water

Mama don’t, don’t gimme none
Don’t gimme none of that lip
Gotta get me some before the devils comes
Gotta get me some of that shit

Hell is on to me
This desert wants a she
Black fire becomes the road

Diving down the dark
Gold inside my heart
Black fire begins to blow

Yeah I’m crashing down
And there’s no one for miles around
Crashing down on the road
On the road on the quiet side of the road

I begin to run
Begging for someone
Bring mercy for my soul

Too damn tired to breath
I’m too damn scared to scream
And my will begins to slow

Yeah I’m crashing down
And there’s no one for miles around
Crashing down on the road
On the road on the quiet side of the road

I guess that I just don’t know better
Or I’d change my ways I’d change everything
But we all can’t live forever
So I’ll take my fate and swallow hole

I can hear his heels
The scratching of his tail
He’s coming for my gold

On his chest it reads
Liars tramps and thieves
My name is big and bold

Crashing down
And there’s no one for miles around
Crashing down on the road
On the road on the quiet side of the road

Say yeah
Say yeah
Say yeah
Yeah

Holding my breath not taking a step
The good church has closed its doors on me
God don’t like my dirty feet
Burning the lawn everyone’s gone
Ain’t no barbeque going on today
I drink my dinner in the shade

Days and days go by
Children laughing still I don’t smile at all
Mary’s calling to me can’t you see what I see
She would never let me down

It’s been a long time at the bottom
I spend a lot of time way down there
It’s been a long time at the bottom
I don’t know how I made it here

Been living a lie my kisses are dry
I got nowhere else left to run
My love is blind deaf and dumb
Heaven can’t wait to lock up the gate
Tell me that I never could belong
I had my chance but got it wrong

Days and days go by
Children laughing still I don’t smile at all
Mary’s calling to me can’t you see what I see
She would never let me down

It’s been a long time at the bottom
I spend a lot of time way down there
It’s been a long time at the bottom
I don’t know how I made it here

Mother Mary stay with me don’t let me die
You’re the only good part left of my trash
God knows I can’t change me
I’ve tried and tried I never meant to make you cry

It’s been a long time at the bottom
I spend a lot of time way down there
It’s been a long time at the bottom
I don’t know how I made it here
