Abraham's Daughter lyrics

Abraham's Daughter
(Win Butler/Rťgine Chassagne/T. Bone Burnett)

Abraham took Isaacís hand
And led him to the lonesome hill
While his daughter hid and watched
She dared not breathe she was so still

Just as an angel cried for the slaughter
Abrahamís daughter raised her voice

Then the angel asked her what her
Name was she said I have none
Then he asked how can this be
My father never gave me one

And when he saw her raised for the slaughter
Abrahamís daughter raised her bow
How darest you child defy your father
You better let young Isaac go

Tomorrow Will Be Kinder lyrics

Tomorrow Will Be Kinder
(Lydia Rogers/Laura Rogers)

Black clouds are behind me
I now can see a head
Often my wonder why I try
Hoping for it in
Sorrow away my soldier's down
And trouble hunts my mind
But I know the pray than 12 not last
And tomorrow will be kind

Tomorrow will be kinder
It's true I've seen it before
A brighter day is coming my way
Yes tomorrow will be kinder

Today I've cried a many tear
And pain is in my heart
Around me lies a summer sea
I don't know where to start
But I feel one thunder my skin
The stars have all..
The wind has blown but now I know
That tomorrow will be kinder

Tomorrow will be kinder
It's true I've seen it before
A brighter day is coming my way
Yes tomorrow will be kinder

Tomorrow will be kinder
Yes tomorrow will be kinder

Nothing to Remember lyrics

Nothing to Remember
(Neko Case)

I spend my life
Becoming invisible
It's hard to maintain
And it's hard to get by
I don't recall
Fight or flight setting in
I have no introduction
I just breath it in like the air
And there's nothing to remember
There is nothing to remember

I owe you nothing
That's all I've got for you
And you'll borrow nothing
That's what you expect of me
So send me a lot
Out of thin sailors knots
And I fear underneath
Your radiant thoughts
My footsteps now
They will echo loudly
All I owe, all I owe
Strides I spend to the finish line
All I owe, all I owe
Strides I spend to the finish line
I'll give you those

You told me something
That scared me to death
Don't take me home
I can't face that yet
I'm ashamed that I'm barely human
And I'm ashamed that
I don't have a heart you can break

I'm just action
And at other times reaction

All I owe, all I owe
Strides I spend to the finish line
All I owe, all I owe
Strides I spend to the finish line
I'll give you those
Just don't make me go home
Give me something to remember
Give me something to remember
Give me something to remember

Safe & Sound lyrics

Safe & Sound (feat. The Civil Wars)
[Taylor Swift, Joy Williams, John Paul White, T-Bone Burnett]

I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, "I'll never let you go"
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, "Don't leave me here alone"
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Don't you dare look out your window darling
Everything's on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold onto this lullaby
Even when the music's gone
Gone

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
La La (La La)
La La (La La)
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
La La (La La)

Just close your eyes
You'll be alright
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound...

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh oh oh

Dark Days lyrics

Dark Days
(Punch Brothers)

Mother, listen to my heart.
Mother, listen to my heart,
Just as one beat ends, another starts.
You can hear no matter where you are
Sister, hide our love away
From the evil we both know.

[Chorus]
It can see us through these dark days,
Though they seem to darken as I go.
Our love will see us through these dark, dark days sister,
'Til it lights the way back home.
Sister, hide our love away.
It can turn the whole world upside down

Shake it 'til the sky falls to the ground.

We don't have to reap the fear they sow,
Friends, as long as we hide our love away,
In the good they'll never know.

[Chorus]
It can see us through these dark days,

Though they seem to darken as I go.
Our love will see us through these dark, dark days sister,
'Til it lights the way back home.
Sister, hide our love away.
Mother, listen to my heart,
Just as one beats ends, another starts.
You can hear no matter where you are.

One Engine lyrics

One Engine
(Colin Meloy)

One engine barely makes it away,
One engine barely makes it away.
Hold on, they're breaking their bonds,
Hold on, they're breaking their bonds,
One engine barely makes it away.

And the martyr line,
It's a bitter pill.
And the line of right,
It will barely make you feel.

I'd like to get you in some kind of way,
Some kind of trouble in some kind of way.
Bear down they'll run you aground,
Bear down they'll run you aground,
We all must suffer awhile in a way.

And the martyr line,
It's a bitter pill.
And the line of right,
It will barely make feel,
Make you feel, barely make you feel.
Make you feel.

And the martyr line,
It's a bitter pill.
And the line of right,
It will barely make you feel,
Make you feel, barely make you feel.
Make you feel.

One engine, one engine, one engine barely makes it away.

The Daughter's Lament lyrics

The Daughter's Lament
(Rhiannon Giddens)

Come in come in my father dear
And spend this hour with me
For I have a meal and a very fine meal
I fixed it up for thee thee
I fixed it up for thee
No I ain't coming in, no
I ain't coming in
To spend this hour with thee
For I have to go down in the mines
I'll return this night to thee thee
I'll return this night to thee
It's she got up her arrow and her bow
Her arrow and her string
And its she went down to the forest deep
And sweetly she did sing sing
And sweetly she did sing
But spoke up, spoke a mockingjay.
Up from a willow tree

Saying you had a father in the mines
Who's gone this day from thee thee
Who's gone this day from thee
Whoa be whoa be oh mockingjay
Whoa be whoa be to thee
I'll send an arrow through your heart
For to bring such news to me me
For to bring such news to me
But spoke up, spoke that mockingjay
Don't waste your time with me
Go home and mind that pretty little girl
Her father no more to see see
Her father no more to see
It's she went home to her house that night
That house so cold and mean
And she held her sister close to her side
And never more did sing sing
And never more did sing

Kingdom Come lyrics

Kingdom Come
(Joy Williams/John Paul White)

Run, run, run away
Buy yourself another day.
A cold wind's whispering
Secrets in your ear
So low only you can hear
Mmm mmm

Run, run, run and hide
Somewhere no one else can find.
Tall trees bend their lean pointing where to go
Where you will still be all alone
Oooh oooh

Don't you fret my dear
It'll all be over soon.
I'll be waiting here,
For you...

Run fast as you can
No one has to understand.
Fly high across the sky
From here to kingdom come.
Fall back down to where you're from

Oooh oooh

Don't you fret my dear,
It'll all be over soon.
I'll be waiting here,
For you!
For you, Oh lord!
For you

Don't you fret my dear (Don't you fret my dear)
It'll all be over soon. (It'll all be over soon)
And I'll be waiting here

Don't you fret my dear, Oh!
It'll all be over soon. Oooh!
I'll be waiting here
For you For you For you

Run, run, run away
Run, run, run away

Take The Heartland lyrics

Take the Heartland
(Glen Hansard)

I'm gonna hide my heart
Behind the peacock's fan,
And keep my friends real close,
Yeah, this is how it's gonna go.
I'm gonna find my knife and run
It through those stitches,
Throw my friends down in the ditches
Before they even know what
I've come here for.

Take the Heartland with a sense of revenge
Take the Heartland and make it look easy
Take the Heartland you'll die in the end
Take the Heartland
I'm gonna grow my hair down
To my face like a Fidel
Castro; like a Che Guevara
Or a Fidel Castro
And I'm gonna grant my folk
My life's one last wish
And I'm gonna take

Their life with a knife
And I'm gonna sit and wait, not fall
Take the Heartland with a sense of revenge
Take the Heartland and make it look easy
Take the Heartland we'll die in the end
Take the Heartland Should
I kill you with my sword, yeah?
Or should I kill you with this word?
You say sit, you say stand,
You say stop, you say go,

You say sit, you say stop,
You say what, you say no,
You say go, you say sit,
You say stand, you say stop,
You say go, you say sit,
And you sit and you watch us all.
Should I kill you with my sword, yeah?
Or should I kill you with this word?
Take the Heartland
Take the Heartland
Your sense of revenge

Take the Heartland
You make it look easy
Take the Heartland
I set myself by the west,
By the watch, by the wall,
I set myself by the wish,
By the watch, by the wall,
I set myself by the words,
By the watch, by the wall,
I set myself by the words,
By the voice that I heard.

Come Away to the Water lyrics

Come Away to the Water
(Glen Hansard)

Come away little loss
Come away to the water
To the ones that are waiting only for you
Come away little loss
Come away to the water
Away from the life that you always knew
We are calling to you

Come away little light
Come away to the darkness
In the shade of the night weíll come looking for you
Come away little light
Come away to the darkness
To the ones appointed to see it through
We are calling for you
We are coming for you

Come away little lamb
Come away to the water
Give yourself so we might live anew
Come away little lamb
Come away to the slaughter
To the ones appointed to see this through
We are calling for you
We are coming for you

Come away little lamb
Come away to the water
To the arms that are waiting only for you
Come away little lamb come away to the slaughter
To the one appointed to see this through
We are calling for you
We are coming for you
We are coming for you
We are coming for you

Run Daddy Run lyrics

Run Daddy Run
(Miranda Lambert/Angaleen Presley/Ashley Monroe)

Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run.

All the songs you used to sing to me
Would rock birds to sleep
I need you now so please somehow
Put rockets on your feet

Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run.

Saw the dark air coming from a million miles away.
Oh how Iíve dreaded this god forsaken day.

Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run.

Mamaís been crying in the kitchen
Sisterís been afraid of the dark.
Iíve been gathering the pieces of all these shattered hearts.
And I donít care where you go to
And I donít care where you land
But just get out of here daddy as fast as you can
Oh, oh, oh

Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run.

Run daddy run, run daddy run,
Run daddy run, run daddy run.

Rules lyrics

Rules
(Megan Keely/Brandon Keely)

You say you know love, but you are just reflecting words you hear.
No iron in your veins to give you any sense of pain or fear.
It's just another lie, it's just another calculation,
And when the power's out, we're just another old sensation.

This blood keeps me alive, but what is it that runs through you?
Electricity and wires, dictating everything you do.
You tell me that you hear me and all your memories are real,
But how do I know you don't just feel what you've been told to feel?

We run around the rules,
We run around the rules,
We run around the rules,
Round and round, two by two, we run around the rules.

There's water in your eyes and I know i'm the reason that it's there,
But still I don't feel bad because I know it's you are more a spare.
And just behind your eyes are switches that can turn back on,
To clear away today 'til all your memories are gone

We run around the rules,
We run around the rules,
We run around the rules,
Round and round, two by two, we run around the rules.

we run around the rules,
We run around the rules,
We run around the rules,
We run around the rules,
Round and round, two by two, we run around the rules.

Eyes Open lyrics

Eyes Open
(Taylor Swift)

Everybody's waiting
Everybody's watching
Even when you're sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open

The tricky thing
Is yesterday we were just children
Playing soldiers
Just pretending
Dreaming dreams with happy endings
In backyards, winning battles with our wooden swords
But now we've stepped into a cruel world
Where everybody stands and keeps score

Keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open

So here you are, two steps ahead and staying on guard
Every lesson forms a new scar
They never thought you'd make it this far
But turn around, oh they've surrounded you
It's a showdown, and nobody comes to save you now
But you've got something they don't
Yeah you've got something they don't
You've just gotta keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes

Keep your feet ready
Heartbeat steady
Keep your eyes open
Keep your aim locked
The night goes dark
Keep your eyes open
Eyes Open
(Taylor Swift)
Everybody's waiting
Everybody's watching
Even when you're sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open

The tricky thing
Is yesterday we were just children
Playing soldiers
Just pretending
Dreaming dreams with happy endings
In backyards, winning battles with our wooden swords
But now we've stepped into a cruel world
Where everybody stands and keeps score

Keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open|

So here you are, two steps ahead and staying on guard
Every lesson forms a new scar
They never thought you'd make it this far
But turn around, oh they've surrounded you
It's a showdown, and nobody comes to save you now
But you've got something they don't
Yeah you've got something they don't
You've just gotta keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes

Keep your feet ready
Heartbeat steady
Keep your eyes open
Keep your aim locked
The night goes dark
Keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping

Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping

Keep your eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open

Lover Is Childlike lyrics

Lover Is Childlike
(Ben Knox Miller/Jeff Prystowsky/Jocelyn Adams)

Meet me down by the whale watch
Meet me down by the sea
Meet me down at Coney Island
We'll go out on the sea

So don't ask me no questions
'Cause I don't cry no wolf
Back through the winds of the ferris wheel
See your doubt in the surf
You might think she's quite right
But my lover is childlike

See the fish swimmin' upstream
Back to the hills
Want no part in the whale watch
If you couldn't tell
My lover ain't quite right But my lover is childlike

She don't care for country
In her tatters and rags As the band plays the anthem
She whispers, "God hates flags"

Just a Game lyrics

Just a Game
(Jasmine van den Bogaerde)

I don't know where I am,
I don't know this place.
Don't recognize anybody,
Just the same old dirty face.
See these people, they lie,
And I don't know who to believe anymore.

But there comes you,
To keep me safe from harm
There comes you,
To take me in your arms
Is it just a game?
I don't know.
Is it just a game?
I don't know.

He denies to break my heart
So homesick and confused
But I know I must play my part
When tears I must conceal,

There comes you,
To keep me safe from harm
There comes you,
To take me in your arms

Is it just a game?
I don't know
To keep you safe from my world

Take my hand and my heart races
Flames illuminate our faces
And we are on fire
Blow a kiss to the crowd
They're our only hope now.

And I know my place.
And I know my place.
We're all just pieces in their games.

Deep in the Meadow (Lullaby) lyrics

Deep in the Meadow (Lullaby)

Deep in the meadow, under the willow
A bed of grass, a soft green pillow
Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes
And when again they open, the sun will rise.

Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you.

Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when again it's morning, they'll wash away.

Here it's safe and here it's warm
And here the daisies guard you from every harm
And here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you
Here is the place where I love you
