John Legend Everybody Knows Lyrics

[ 0 ] January 21, 2009

Everybody Knows by John Legend

It gets harder every day, but I can’t seem to shake the pain
I’m trying to find the words to say, please say
It’s written all over my face, I can’t
Function the same when you’re not here
I’m calling your name and no one’s there
And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
But I wish you the best, I guess.
‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

I don’t care what the people say
They brought it all in anyway
Baby don’t fill up your head with he-said, she-said
It seems like you just don’t know
The radio’s on, you tuning me out,
I’m trying to speak, you’re turning me down
And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
But I wish you the best, I guess.
‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

Oh I wish you’d understand
Oh, just an ordinary man
Listen we’d have known
Everybody knows, but nobody really knows
And I know one day you’ll see, nobody has it easy
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
I wish you the best, I guess.

‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

Fish in the Sea

[ 2 ] January 2, 2009

depressed fish in the sea“There are tons of fish in the sea, but what if I don’t know how to fish?” ~ Matthew Henrickson

Now even the fish are depressed. What am I supposed to ‘catch’ ?

The San Diego Union Tribune posted this short article:

“Researchers have found that antidepressants in rivers and lakes, part of the flood of pharmaceuticals washing into the environment, make fish sad, casuing them to cease eating or looking for mates. Some fish even stop swimming, preferring instead to simply hang vertically in the water.”

Even though “fish in the sea” is a metaphor, seems so real doesn’t it?

ATL Movie Poem Loves Deceit by Big Rube

[ 39 ] December 22, 2008

Update: Many people seem to know the general idea, but still don’t fully get it. I wrote my own Interpretation of Loves Deceit. I tried to break it down the best I could and understood.

If you’ve seen ATL you know it has a dramatic ending. “Uncle George” recites a nice poem called Loves Deceit by Big Rube. Big Rube is a rapper from Atlanta and has done more poetry on ATL and other places.

“Love’s Deceit”

Pleasure turns to the pain of lessons learned from the strain of the questions burned in my brain about whether love is humane in its touch
These thoughts are like salmon swimming upstream in the tears of your deceit
Fighting a current hurt that kills more than is created by the chaos of our intertwined emotions
Chaotic because the anchor of Eros’ arrow has been plucked from the vessel of my undying infatuation
Separation not as simple as the distance between us
My mind no longer possessed by the demons that had been the overseers of my enslavement to your lies
The seeds of these lies rooted so deeply they’ve cracked the foundation of what we once shared
Allowing the faith in us I had sealed inside to gush out like a river
Ripping the image of our future together from my thoughts as violently and as brutally as if it were a child being taken from its mothers arms
I’m left surrounded in darkness but I refuse to be swallowed by it
My loneliness like night air; invisible to the eye obvious to the touch, in its cold uncomfortable ness
Yet If I could do all over again I’d do it in the same skin I’m in
To lay down and let love die, just stay down and let love lie
No, no, no, no, not I
I’ll stay around and let love fly
Even though I’ve seen its darkest form; deceit
Nothing else could tastes this warm or feel this sweet

by Big Rube

Listen to the poem on Youtube.

Baby Boy Movie Prayer Quote

[ 5 ] December 21, 2008

If you know me, you know I’m not big on religion, God, and prayers. It just really has never sunk in much for me. However watching Baby Boy they pray and I had to write it down. It’s a great prayer in the movie from Omar Gooding with Tyrese.

Dear Lord,

Please forgive us for all are sins we have brought upon us. And look down upon us with forgiveness for all are sins we will have in the future. I know you understand that brothers ain’t perfect, but we try lord. We try to keep our heads up in bad times. This is a bad time. Show us the way. And if you can’t show us the way… then forgive us for being lost.

Watch it on Youtube.

I Love, You Love Lyrics by John Legend

[ 1 ] December 18, 2008

John Legend I Love, You Love Lyrics

Hush my baby, Don’t you cry.
I’ll dry your eyes. Fulfill your heart’s desire.
Let’s go in. Try again.
Careful this time. Broken promises linger in our mind.

I’ll give in completely. Hearts break so easy.
I know. Believe me. Oh, I’ve tried.
But my arms can hold you. My kiss console you.
I’ll come and love you tonight.

Chorus
And I…
I love, I love, I love
Love hurts sometimes
But this feels right.

You…
You love, you love, you love
Though you’ve been burned
You still return.

Verse 2
Come and share my house, my home, and all I own.
I’d love to give to you.
Aren’t you tired of going along this lonely road?
It takes its toll on you.

Give me your emotion, your heart’s devotion.
Give anything you like.
And I’ll give understanding. Life’s so demanding.
I’m all you need to get by.

Chorus
And I…
I love, I love, I love
Love hurts sometimes
But this feels right.

And You…
You love, you love, you love
Though you’ve been burned
You still return.

I love, I love, I love
Love hurts sometimes
But this feels right.

And You…
You love you love you love
Though you’ve been burned
You still return.

Still return
Still return to love (Oh)
Keep coming back to love (Ah oh)

Empty Vase

Empty Vase
November 22, 2008

The flowers I got you
Just sit and look beautiful
They drink their water
Soon it runs dry.

The flowers
that I once bought for you
That made me smile
And drank that water
No longer are there.

They withered away and died
They never made you smile
You never noticed the effort
You never stopped to smell the roses
You never saw me trying.

How Could You Be So Heartless?

[ 0 ] December 3, 2008

How Could You Be So Heartless?
11/30/2008

I try to hold you close
And you push me away
Somehow it’s not the same
How could you be so heartless?

I try to figure out your life
But you tell me to stay out of your business
You ask me where I’m going
Just so you can be alone
When did being together start to mean we weren’t alone?
How could you be so heartless?

I try to tell you I love you
To show you
Bring it back to when I felt
Like you loved me.
For what I took for granted.
Fopr what you don’t seem to care for.

How could we be so heartless?

by Matthew Henrickson

Inspired by the song of course. Check out the Heartless Lyrics by Kayne West.

Heartless Lyrics by Kayne West

[ 0 ] December 2, 2008

Heartless Lyrics by Kayne West

In the night, I hear ’em talk,
the coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless..
How could you be so heartless?
Oh.. How could you be so heartless?

[Verse 1]
How could you be so, cold as the winter wind when it breeze, yo
Just remember that you talkin’ to me though
You know need to watch the way you talkin’ to me, yo
I mean after all the things that we’ve been through
I mean after all the things we got into
Hey yo, I know of some things that you ain’t told me
Hey yo, I did some things but that’s the old me

And now you wanna get me back and you gon’ show me
So you walk around like you don’t know me
You got a new friend, well I got homies
But in the end it’s still so lonely

[Chorus]
In the night, I hear ’em talk,
the coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless..
How could you be so heartless?
Oh.. How could you be so heartless?

[Verse 2]
How could be so Dr. Evil, you bringin’ out a side of me that I dont know..
I decided we weren’t gon’ speak so
Why we up 3 A.M. on the phone
Why does she be so mad at me fo’
Homie I dont know, she’s hot and cold
I won’t stop, I won’t mess my groove up
‘Cause I already know how this thing go
You run and tell your friends that you’re leaving me
They say that they don’t see what you see in me
You wait a couple months then you gon’ see
You’ll never find nobody better than me

[Chorus]
In the night, I hear ’em talk,
the coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless..
How could you be so heartless?
Oh.. How could you be so heartless?

[Verse 3]
Talkin’, talkin’, talkin’, talk
Baby let’s just knock it off
They don’t know what we been through
They don’t know ’bout me and you

So I got something new to see
And you just gon’ keep hatin’ me
And we just gon’ be enemies
I know you can’t believe
I could just leave it wrong
And you can’t make it right
I’m gon’ take off tonight
Into the night…

[Chorus]
In the night, I hear ’em talk,
the coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless..
How could you be so heartless?
Oh.. How could you be so heartless?

Shontelle T-Shirt Lyrics

[ 1 ] November 27, 2008

Obviously not meant for a man to sing to, but anyone can relate. Not so much with dresses or Jimmy Choo’s, but all the emotion, feeling, and words are all there. I never used to go out without you Not sure I remember how to.

T-Shirt Lyrics by Shontelle

Try’na decide Try’na decide
If I really wanna go out tonight
I never used to go out without ya
Not sure I remember how ta

Gonna be late Gonna be late
But, all my girls don’t have to wait ’cause
I dont know if I like my outfit
I tried everything in my closet

(Chorus)
Nothin feels right when Im not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Takin them off ’cause I feel a fool
Try’na dress up when Im missin you

Imma step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball with something Hanes
In bed I lay

With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on

(Verse 2)
Hey

Gotta be strong gotta be strong but Im
Really hurtin now that you’re gone
I thought maybe I’d do some shopping
But I couldnt get past the door and

Now I dont know, now I dont know If Im
Ever really gonna let you go
And I couldnt even leave my apartment
I’m stripped down, torn up about it

(Chorus)
Nothin feels right when Im not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Takin them off ’cause I feel a fool
Try’na dress up when Im missin’ you

Im’a step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball with something Hanes
In bed I lay

With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on
(’cause I missed you, ’cause I missed you)
With nothing but your T-shirt on
(said I missed you … baby)

(Repeated On Verse 2)
Now I dont know, now I dont know If Im
Ever really gonna let you go
And I couldnt even leave my apartment I’m stripped down, torn up about it

(Half Chorus)
Nothing feels right when Im not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Taking them off ’cause I feel a fool
Try’na dress up when Im missin you

Imma step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball with something Hanes
In bed I lay

(Chorus)
Nothing feels right when Im not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Taking them off ’cause I feel a fool
Try’na dress up when Im missin you

Imma step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball with something Hanes
In bed I lay

With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on

Through It All

[ 0 ] November 24, 2008

Digging deep in the archives of my poems. Through it all, I found this. Going old… Feb 2004.

Through It All

Through the blood and tears
Through the shots and beers
Through the drugs and pills
Through the shakes and chills
Through the loneliness and heartache
Through each mistake
I’m still here…
