all Sheryl Crow lyrics



Run, Baby, Run
She was born in november 1963
The day that aldous huxley died
And her mama believed
That every man could be free
So her mama got high, high, high
And her daddy marched on birmingham
Singing mighty protest songs
And he pictured all the places
Where he knew that she'd belong
But he failed and taught her young
The only thing she'd need to carry on
He taught her how to

Run baby run baby run baby run
Baby run

Past the arms of the familiar
And their talk of better days
To the comfort of the strangers
Slipping out before they say
So long
Baby loves to run

She counts out all her money
In the taxi on the way to meet her plane
Stares hopeful out the window
At the workers fighting
Through the pouring rain
She's searching through the stations
For an unfamiliar song
And she's pictures all the places
Where she knows she still belongs
And she smiles the secret smile
Because she knows exactly how
To carry on

So run baby run baby run baby run
Baby run

From the old familiar faces and
Their old familiar ways
To the comfort of the strangers
Slipping out before they say
So long
Baby loves to runback to top
Leaving Las Vegas
Life springs eternal
On a gaudy neon street
Not that I care at all
I spent the best part of my losing streak
In an army jeep
For what I can't recall
Oh I'm banging on my tv set
And I check the odds
And I place my bet
I pour a drink
And I pull the blind
And I wonder what I'll find

[chorus]
I'm leaving las vegas
Lights so bright
Palm sweat, blackjack
On a saturday night
Leaving las vegas
Leaving for good, for good
I'm leaving for good
I'm leaving for good

Used to be I could drive up to
Barstow for the night
Find some crossroad trucker
To demonstrate his might
But these days it seems
Nowhere is far enough away
So I'm leaving las vegas today

Chorus

I'm standing in the middle of the desert
Waiting for my ship to come in
But now no joker, no jack, no king
Can take this loser hand
And make it win

Chorus

I quit my job as a dancer
At the lido des girls
Dealing blackjack until one or two
Such a muddly line between
The things you want
And the things you have to do

Chorus

I'm leaving las vegas
And I won't be back
No I won't be back
Not this timeback to top
Strong Enough
God, I feel like hell tonight
Tears of rage I cannot fight
I'd be the last to help you understand
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Nothing's true and nothing's right
So let me be alone tonight
Cause you can't change the way I am
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I'll believe
Lie to me
But please don't leave

I have a face I cannot show
I make the rules up as I go
It's try and love me if you can
Are you strong enough to be my man?

When I've shown you that I just don't care
When I'm throwing punches in the air
When I'm broken down and I can't stand
Will you be strong enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I'll believe
Lie to me
But please don't leaveback to top
Can't Cry Anymore
Took your car
Drove to texas
Sorry, honey
But I suspected we were through
And I can't cry anymore
Since I left
Been feelin' better, cause that's
What you get when you
Stay together too long
And I can't cry anymore

[chorus]
Wouldn't it be good if we could hop a flight to anywhere
So long to this life
So much for pretending
Bad luck's never-ending
And now I know that

Money comes is
But the fact is
There's not enough to
Pay my taxes
And I can't cry anymore
Well, got a brother
He's got real problems
Heroin - no
There's just no stopping him tonight
And I won't cry anymore

Chorus

It's never ending

It could be worse
I could've missed my calling
Sometimes it hurts
But when you read the writing on the wall
Can't cry anymore

Chorus

And too much time I've been spending
With my heart in my hands
Waiting for time to come and mend it

I can't cry anymoreback to top
Solidify
Pouring in and around the great wellspring
Of simple feeling
And I need bearings in the face of your
Cool cool fire
Walking backwards with the pounding of your voice
Makes my soul tired
And concrete is
As concrete doesn't
And voices can drown

Why should i
Why should i
Why should i
Why should i
Solidify
Make me real
So you can see me

I guess you thought
I'd hide the sun from my liquid thoughts and
Make ice for you
You thought I'd seed my clouds
With the rain of your personal dreams
I guess you thought I'd throw confetti
At your parade of lofty thoughts
I guess you thought I'd shine good morning
In some good morning jack
Surprise

Why should i
Why should i
Why should i
Why should i?

The Na-Na Song
Video countdown cyber phallic optics
Profligate talk shows scrounging for a topic
Rock-a-buy gravy train cradle's gonna rock me
37 million's what larry parker got me
World war xiv, my first sony
Beatles wrote the nike song and called it macaroni
Billy jean burger king chauvinist pig pen
U.s. army only wants a few straight men

Na-na, na-na na-na, na-na na-na na-na

Panaflex soloflex genuflect pope
What the world needs now is babies, gun and hope
Guardian angel dust in the wind cries mary
Wanna be madonna but the price is too high, very
Perfect rhythm nazis in the pagan rhythm nation
Everybody's equal in the glow of radiation
Gotta four-wheel drive and I park it in the driveway
When I get drunk I drive it on the parkway
Gotta get a tv set for my car
Tonight's the battle of the network stars

Na-na, na-na na-na, na-na na-na na-na
Na-na, na-na na-na, na-na na-na na-na

Sanaflush bud-bowl makin' me sick
Cause anybody in a helmet looks just like a dick
Steely dan rather be hammer than a nail
The serbs, the poles, and the check's in the mail
Eat sleep live die fucking record label
G gordon liddy under the table, table, table
Clarence thomas organ grinder frank dileo's dong
Maybe if I'd him I'd have had a hit song

No One Said It Would Be Easy
It's obvious the trouble we're in
When your father pulls up in a mercedes benz
He says he just happened to be in the neighborhood
But before he leaves he slips the landlord the rent
You say, 'it's just a question of eliminating obstacles'
As you throw your dinner out the kitchen door
You say, 'i know how you try'

But honey, let's eat out tonight

[chorus]
No one said it would be easy
But no one said it'd be this hard
No one said it would be easy
No one thought we'd come this far

You can't seem to ever fold up a shirt
I bring it up and you think I'm a jerk
But I think we're here to stay
I can't imagine it any other way

Chorus

Sometimes I wonder who he's picturing
When he looks at me and smiles

No one said it would be easy
No one said it'd be this hard
No one said it would be easy
No one thought we'd come this far
Oh, and look we've come this farback to top
What I Can Do For You
I'm so glad you're awake
That you're not like the others
Cause they're so straight-laced
And no fun
Gosh that's nice
That lingerie
Makes me feel like
Oh, I don't know

You're a very pretty thing
You remind me of someone
You must have heard
Some awful nasty things about me, but

What I can do for you
There's no one else
On god's green earth can do
What I can do for you
There's no one else
On god's green earth can do

Just ask anybody
They'll tell you that it's true
There's no one else on earth
Can do the things that I can do for you

You're never gonna make it
All by yourself
You're gonna need a friend
You're gonna need my help
I have so much to offer
If you just be nice
If you do what I say
And don't make me say it twice

Do you mind if I just
Rub my hand up thus
Come on just my hand
Come on just my hand
You got to understand
I'm gonna be your man
I'm gonna be your man
You're gonna need me

All I Wanna Do
Hit it!
This ain't no disco
It ain't no country club either
This is la!

All I wanna do is have a little fun before I die,
Says the man next to me out of nowhere
It's apropos
Of nothing
He says his name's william but I'm sure,
He's bill or billy or mac or buddy
And he's plain ugly to me
And I wonder if he's ever had a day of fun in his whole
Life
We are drinking beer at noon on tuesday
In a bar that faces a giant car wash
The good people of the world are washing their cars
On their lunch break, hosing and scrubbing
As best they can in skirts in suits

They drive their shiny datsuns and buicks
Back to the phone company, the record store too
Well, they're nothing like billy and me, cause

[chorus]
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over santa monica boulevard

I like a good beer buzz early in the morning
And billy likes to peel the labels
From his bottles of bud
He shreds them on the bar
Then he lights every match in an oversized pack
Letting each one burn down to his thick fingers
Before blowing and cursing them out
And he's watching the bottles of bud as they spin on
The floor

And a happy couple enters the bar
Dangerously close to one another
The bartender looks up from his want ads

Chorus

Otherwise the bar is ours,
The day and the night and the car wash too
The matches and the buds and the clean and dirty
Cars
The sun and the moon but

We Do What We Can
Downstairs they're playing kenton
The house set to swing
I lay in my bed
And listen to everything
Cause leo's in rare form tonight
His trombone sings so sweet
This is the room
Where they all come to meet

He said
I do what I can
I live for the moment
And that's who I am
Yeah that's who I am

And isn't it good
If we could freeze moments in time
We all would
But I do what I can
I do what I can

Downstairs he's playing kenton
The magnavox sighs
But oh how the music has changed
In all of our lives
He says 'nobody listens
To modern jazz'
And I'll never have what those guys have

He says
I do what I can
I work for a living
And that's who I am
Yeah that's who I am

And it's good to be alive
But everything's different since leo died
I do what I can

Is this the end of the modern world
What could it mean for a young girl
Who sees the pain on his face
He does what he can

The procession on the tv screen
What could it possibly mean for a man
Who's come this far just to turn around
Could there still be life in kenton's swing
With the kennedys gone and everything
Those sad rows of houses with their optimistic colors
Democrat grandparents and draft-dodging brothers
Riots down the street and discontented mothers
We do what we can

Downstairs it's quiet
Less alive somehow
Somehow he was everything that I am now

And he says
I do what I can
I work for a living
And that's who I am
And that's who I am

But it's good to be alive
And these are the choices
We make to survive
You do what you canback to top
I Shall Believe
Come to me now
And lay your hands over me
Even if it's a lie
Say it will be alright
And I shall believe

I'm broken in two
And I know you're on to me
That I only come home
When I'm so all alone
But I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me
Please say honestly you won't give up on me
And I shall believe
And I shall believe

Open the door
And show me your face tonight
I know it's true
No one heals me like you
And you hold the key

Never again
Would I turn away from you
I'm so heavy tonight
But your love is alright
And I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me
Please say honestly
You won't give up on me
And I shall believe
I shall believe
And I shall believeback to top
