Matthew Arnold

West London

Crouched on the pavement, close by Belgrave Square
A tramp I saw, ill, moody, and tongue-tied.
A babe was in her arms, and at her side
A girl; their clothes were rags, their feet were bare.

Some labouring men, whose work lay somewhere there,
Passed opposite; she touched her girl, who hied
Across, and begged and came back satisfied.
The rich she had let pass with frozen stare.

Thought I: "Above her state this spirit towers;
She will not ask of aliens, but of friends,
Of sharers in a common human fate.

She turns from that cold succour, which attends
The unknown little from the unknowing great,
And points us to a better time than ours."

Matthew Arnold

The Scholar-Gipsy

Go, for they call you, Shepherd, from the hill;
Go, Shepherd, and untie the wattled cotes:
No longer leave thy wistful flock unfed,
Nor let thy bawling fellows rack their throats,
Nor the cropp'd grasses shoot another head.
But when the fields are still,
And the tired men and dogs all gone to rest,
And only the white sheep are sometimes seen
Cross and recross the strips of moon-blanch'd green;
Come Shepherd, and again begin the quest.

Here, where the reaper was at work of late,
In this high field's dark corner, where he leaves
His coat, his basket, and his earthen cruise,
And in the sun all morning binds the sheaves,
Then here, at noon, comes back his stores to use;
Here will I sit and wait,
While to my ear from uplands far away
The bleating of the folded flocks is borne,
With distant cries of reapers in the corn—

Black Pearl

Deep down in Mississippi
I found a sweet delta blue
She weaved a little southern spell on me
Made a little voodoo
She was born the bright side of midnight
When her mama was seventeen
She was a hot blooded - god fearin' - gospel girl
The finest that I ever seen

Chorus

She's black coffee - little bit 'o cream
Sweet brown sugar - my midnight dream
Black pearl - my kinda girl
Just the kind of thing to rock my world
Black pearl - my kinda girl

Met her in a dixie diner
Put on the southern hospitality
I can still smell her sweet molasses

Body

Hush child lay your sweet lips on me
this greed bigger than you and me
will you come again
body
tongue tied and a visceral third degree
feel warm center of gravity
wash us all away
body never lies
will you come again
will we stay friends
oh you paralyze
there are times when I wish
that I was you
thick skinned cities you drive me through
better than me you're a women
seven days and my system is free again
we rise lose it on obvious
falling away sorry for the way
your child is on fire
lick these my ruby lips

Cuttooth

I wanna be in the wallpaper
Or run away to the foreign legion
I wanna be in the wallpaper
Or run away to the foreign legion

And as the tanks roll into town
As the tanks roll into town
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you

As the tanks roll into town
As the tanks roll into town
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you

I dont know why I feel so tongue-tied
I dont know why I feel so skinned alive

Hold you till the arms are sore
Until you cannot feel it any more

Who's That Girl?

Who's that girl?

The language of love
Slips from my lover's tongue
Cooler than ice cream
And warmer than the sun
Dumb hearts get broken
Just like china cups
The language of love
Has left me broken on the rocks

But there's just one thing
(Just one thing)
But there's just one thing
And I really wannna know

Who's that girl
Running around with you?
Tell me
Who's that girl

Why Don't You & I

Since the moment I spotted you
Like walking round with little wings on my shoes
My stomach's filled with the butterflies... and it's alright
Bouncing round from cloud to cloud
I got the feeling like I'm never going to come down
If I said I didn't like it then you know I'd lied

[Pre-Chorus:]
Every time I try to talk to you
I get tongue-tied
Turns out that everything I say to you
Comes out wrong and never comes out right

[Chorus:]
So I'll say 'why don't you and I get together and take on the world
and be together forever
Heads we will and tails we'll try again
So I say why don't you and I hold each other and fly to the moon
and straight on to heaven
Cause without you they're never going to let me in

My Burnin Heart

Tupac:
I lay awake tonite
Because I wanna be with u
If u were beside me Id playfully kiss u
Each time I see u the feeling gets stronger
U sit with me closer we stare a lot longer
Reach for my drink and for a second we touch
Words r muttered I stutter
Cause I want u taht much
The situation is a no win
Cause hes my best friend
But now Im guilty
Im fallin for his girlfriend
I know its wrong but my heart is filled with purity
I offer passion but he offers security
Its like a trap that Im sinkin into
I wake up sweaty when Im thinkin of u
Then we make our contact
And I cant hold back
I try to shake it but the feeling comes right back

My Paper Heart

Please just dont play with me my paper heart will bleed
This wait for destiny wont do
Be with me please I beseach you
Simple things, that make you run a-way
Catch you if I can
Tears fall, down your face
The taste, is something new
Something that I know
Moving on is, easiest when I am around you.
So bottle up old love,
And throw it out to sea,
Watch it away as you cry
Now a year has past
The seasons go
Please just dont play with me
My paper heart will bleed
This wait for destiny wont do
Be with me please I beseach you
Simple things, that make you run a-way
Catch you if I can
