all Ben Harper lyrics



With My Own Two Hands
I can change the world
With my own two hands
Make a better place
With my own two hands
Make a kinder place
With my own two hands
With my own
With my own two hands
I can make peace on earth
With my own two hands
I can clean up the earth
With my own two hands
I can reach out to you
With my own two hands
With my own
With my own two hands

I'm gonna make it a brighter place
I'm gonna make it a safer place
I'm gonna help the human race
With my own
With my own two hands

I can hold you
With my own two hands
I can comfort you
With my own two hands
But you got to use
Use your own two hands
Use your own
Use your own two hands

With our own
With our own two hands
With my own
With my own two handsback to top
When It's Good
You're a prison I can't escape
You're a decision I never make
Heard me laughing
You heard me weep and moan
When it's good, it's good
When it's gone, it's gone

They say time will kill the pain
I say pain is gonna kill my time
Lord won't you save me
Or leave me alone

When it's good, it's good
When it's gone, it's gone

I hang your picture above my mind
Don't do anything you can't deny
I could never be your pawn
When it's good, it's good
When it's gone, it's gone

Some drink to remember
Some to forget
Some for satisfaction
Some to regret
I hope a brighter day to you I've shown

When it's good, it's good
When it's gone, it's goneback to top
Diamonds on the Inside
I knew a girl
Her name was truth
She was a horrible liar
She couldn't spend one day alone
But she couldn't be satisfied
When you have everything
You have everything to lose
She made herself a bed of nails
And she's planning on putting it to use
But she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
Diamonds

A candle throws it's light into the darkness
In a nasty world so shines a good deed
Make sure the fortune that you seek
Is the fortune that you need
Tell me why the first to ask
Is the last to give every time
What you say and do not mean
Follows you close behind

She had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
Diamonds
Diamonds

Like the soldier long standing under fire
Any change comes as a relief
Let the giver's name remain unspoken
She is just a generous thief

She had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds
Oh - diamonds
She had diamonds
She wore diamonds

Touch from Your Lust
I need to sleep but I'm too tired
I need to come down but I'm too wired
When the sun comes up I miss the moon
Cause I know tomorrow is gonna come too soon
She only wants to be wanted
But time crumbles blue roses to dust
Now I long to feel the touch from your lust

Scars on your back tell where you've been
But I'll roll like the ocean if you'll blow like the wind
Sweet texas angel what have your blue eyes seen
I'll be your country gentleman
If you will be my mason dixon queen
Queen

She only wants to be wanted
But time crumbles blue roses to dust
Now I long to feel the touch from your lust

So much sweeter than all the rest
You're what lies between pain and death
Sinners and saints call you by name
If you're gonna take the praise
You're gonna have to learn to take the blame

She only wants to be wanted
But time crumbles blue roses to dust
Now I long to feel the touch from yourback to top
When She Believes
The good lord is such a good lord
With such a good mother too
They have blessed me
In the good graces of you
I have heard a hundred violins crying
And I have seen a hundred white doves flying
But nothing is as beautiful
As when she believes in me

How good it must feel
To be so young and free
And a song that pleases a queen
Will always please me
I have heard the wisest of wisdom
And I have dined in palaces and kingdoms

But nothing is as beautiful
As when she believes in me

Now, all of life
Is just passing the time
Until once again
Your eyes look into mine
I have been adored by a stranger
And I have heard the whispering angel

But nothing is as beautiful
As when she believes in meback to top
Brown Eyed Blues
If I knew being here with you today
Would mean being alone tomorrow
I would gladly trade all of my tomorrows away
For a moment with you
Brown eyed blues
You can find yourself another fool

Can you look
Into my eyes
Or has your heart gone blind
Can you look
Into your own
And find the safe place to hide

Brown eyed blues
You can find yourself another fool

Why be with a stranger
When you could be with your friend
If you're ever lonely you know I'm lonely too
And I'll stay lonely until I'm again with you

Brown eyed blues
You can find yourself another foolback to top
Bring the Funk
When it's on the one you know the funk's begun
When you are down and out there is no doubt
You need the funk
Just bring the funk
Bring the funk
Bring the funk
Now what's the problem everybody's got them
Just get the hole out of your soul
And bring the funk
Bring me the funk
Bring the funk

If you got a glass closet don't you throw no bones
There's only getting until the getting's gone
So pass me the funk
Got to have my funk
I need my funk
Got to have my funk

Some are jiving
Some are shuck
Some are just down on their luck
They just need the funk
They got to have the funk
Got to have the funk
Just bring 'em some funk
Just bring the funk
Bring it

Stay black
Stay black
Stay white
Stay brown
Just get on down
Bring the funk
Got to bring the funk
Bring the funk
I need it

Well it's got to be solid
That's what you call it
Funk me up funk me down
Funk me sideways funk me all ways
Bring the funk
Got to bring the funk
Bring the funk

Some things money can't fix
Some things only money will do the trick
It's not the end of the world but I can see it from here
So bring me the funk
Just bring me the funk
Bring the funkback to top
Everything
Behind all of your tears
There's a smile
Behind all of the rain
There's a sunshine for miles and miles
Everything
Everything
You mean everything
You mean everything
Everything to me

The colors of your garden
They're yellow, blue and green
And the sound of your sweet voice
It's better than all my dreams

Everything
Everything
You mean everything
You mean everything
Everything to me

Your my first thought in the morning
When I rise
You're my last thought in the evening
When I rest my head at night

Everything
Everything
You mean everything
You mean everything
Everything to meback to top
Amen Omen
What started as a whisper
Slowly turned into a scream
Searching for an answer
Where the question is unseen
I don't know where you came from
And I don't know where you've gone
Old friends become old strangers
Between the darkness and the dawn
Amen omen
Will I see your face again
Amen omen
Can I find the place within
To live my life without you

I still hear you saying
All of life is a chance
And is sweetest
When at a glance
But I live a hundred
Lifetimes in a day
But I die a little
In every breath that I take

Amen omen
Will I see your face again
Amen omen
Can I find the place within
To live my life without you

I listen to a whisper
Slowly drift away
Silence is the loudest
Parting word you never say
I put your world
Into my veins
Now a voiceless sympathy
Is all that remains

Amen omen
Will I see your face again
Amen omen
Can I find the place within
To live my life without youback to top
Temporary Remedy
I killed a snake with a bible
I was living a johnny cash song
I'm afraid for this I may be liable
So it's best I be moving - moving along
Just a temporary remedy
Running through my veins

Summer lasted through november
Funny when it's gone you miss cold
Words can be spoken for a lifetime
We can never hear until we're told

Just a temporary remedy
Running through my veins

They tell me nothing is perfect
Then tell me why is it a word
Yesterday's news is tomorrow's blues
Now they're perfectly blurred

Just a temporary remedy
Running through my veinsback to top
So High So Low
Once you know you can never
You can never turn back
But I understand
' cause we all fear what we lack
Being with you
Makes me tired as hell
And it's so high so low

Now if I was strong
And you were male
You'd be dead
And I would be in jail

Being with you
Makes me tired as hell
And it's so high so low

Don't go making promises
You know you won't keep
Weddings turn to funerals
Both with songs that make you weep

Being with you
Makes me tired as hell
And it's so high so lowback to top
Blessed to Be a Witness
Corcovado parted the sky
And through the darkness
On us he shined
Crucified in stone
Still his blood is my own
Glory behold all my eyes have seen
I am blessed to be a witness

Some have flown away
And can't be with us here today
Like the hills of my home
Some have crumbled and now are gone
Gather around for today won't come again

I am blessed to be a witness

So much sorrow and pain
Still I will not live in vain
Like good questions never asked
Is wisdom wasted on the past
Only by the grace of God go i

I am blessed to be a witnessback to top
Picture of Jesus
It hangs above my altar
Like they hung him from a cross
I keep one in my wallet
For the times I feel lost
In a wooden frame with splinters
Where my family kneels to pray
And if you listen close
You'll hear the words he used to say
I've got a picture of jesus
In his arms so many prayers rest
We've got a picture of jesus
And with him we shall be forever blessed

Now it has been spoken
He would come again
But would we recognize
This king among men
There was a man in our time
His words shine bright like the sun
He tried to lift the masses
And was crucified by gun

He was a picture of jesus
With him so many prayers rest
He is a picture of jesus
In his arms so many prayers rest
With him we shall be forever blessed

Some days have no beginning
And some days have no end
Some roads are straight and narrow
And some roads only bend
So let us say a prayer
For every living thing
Walking towards a light
From the cross of a king

We long to be a picture of jesus
In his arms so many prayers rest
I long to be a picture of jesus
With him we shall be forever blessedback to top
She's Only Happy in the Sun
I know you may not want to see me
On your way down from the clouds
Would you hear me if I told you
That my heart is with you now
She's only happy in the sun
She's only happy in the sun

Did you find what you were after
The pain and the laughter brought you to your knees
But if the sun sets you free
Sets you free
You'll be free indeed
Indeed

She's only happy in the sun
She's only happy in the sun

Every time I hear you laughing
Hear you laughing
It makes me cry
Like a story of life
Of life
Is hello goodbye

She's only happy in the sun
She's only happy in the sun
She's only happy in the sun
She's only happy in the sunback to top
