“I Heard It Through The Grapevine”

oh, I bet you’re wond’rin’ how I knew
’bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys you know I love you more
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Dontcha know that I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
Oh I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, ooh, ooh, ooh)

I know a man ain’t supposed to cry
But these tears I can’t hold inside
Losin’ you would end my life you see
’cause you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself
That you love someone else
Instead I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
And I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

People say believe half of what you see
Son, and none of what you hear
But I can’t help bein’ confused
If it’s true please tell me dear
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before?
Dontcha know I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Baby I heard it through the grapevine
Ooh I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Honey, honey, I know
That you’re lettin’ me go
Said I heard it through the grapevine

Lyric by Marvin Gaye

“I Love The Way You Lie” by Eminem

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that’s alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that’s alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

I can’t tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there’s a steel knife
In my windpipe
I can’t breathe
But I still fight
While I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right
It’s like I’m in flight
High of a love
Drunk from the hate
It’s like I’m huffing paint
And I love it the more that I suffer
I sufficate
And right before im about to drown
She resuscitates me
She fucking hates me
And I love it
Wait
Where you going
I’m leaving you
No you ain’t
Come back
We’re running right back
Here we go again
It’s so insane
Cause when it’s going good
It’s going great
I’m Superman
With the wind in his bag
She’s Lois Lane
But when it’s bad
It’s awful
I feel so ashamed
I snap
Who’s that dude
I don’t even know his name
I laid hands on her
I’ll never stoop so low again
I guess I don’t know my own strength

You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe
When you’re with them
You meet
And neither one of you
Even know what hit ’em
Got that warm fuzzy feeling
Yeah them chills
Used to get ’em
Now you’re getting fucking sick
Of looking at ’em
You swore you’ve never hit ’em
Never do nothing to hurt ’em
Now you’re in each other’s face
Spewing venom
And these words
When you spit ’em
You push
Pull each other’s hair
Scratch, claw, bit ’em
Throw ’em downPin ’em
So lost in the moments
When you’re in ’em
It’s the rage that took over
It controls you both
So they say it’s best
To go your separate ways
Guess that they don’t know ya
Cause today
That was yesterday
Yesterday is over
It’s a different day
Sound like broken records
Playin’ over
But you promised her
Next time you’ll show restraint
You don’t get another chance
Life is no Nintendo game
But you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave
Out the window
Guess that’s why they call it window pane

It wasn’t you
Baby it was me
Maybe our relationship
Isn’t as crazy as it seems
Maybe that’s what happens
When a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is
I love you too much
To walk away though
Come inside
Pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don’t you hear sincerity
In my voice when I talk
Told you this is my fault
Look me in the eyeball
Next time I’m pissed
I’ll aim my fist
At the dry wall
Next time
There will be no next time
I apologize
Even though I know it’s lies
I’m tired of the games
I just want her back
I know I’m a liar
If she ever tries to fucking leave again
I’mma tie her to the bed
And set the house on fire

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that’s alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that’s alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Lyics from his new record “Recovery”

“The Paper Sleeve” by Jaymie Thorne

i watched him place it
with care upon the player
turntable spinning backwards
taking me back in time
raised arms steeped us in music
looking for hidden pictures
on the colorful covers
adding doodles to make it mine
lyrics repeating until
memorized, the song was owned
listening for secret sounds
that made it onto the tracks
switching speeds to change the mood
lip synching to known scratches
all the things he would never know
in quite the same way
i love that he took great care
slipping it back in the paper sleeve

“The Choice” by Delevie/Morgan

They packed him with explosives
Which they hid beneath his clothes
They filled his heart with lust
For the destruction of his foes

They said his death was nothing
But the price that must be paid
To fan the flames of hate and strife
Maximize the loss of life
Making peace impossible
By making them afraid.

He made his date with destiny
With heaven in his eyes
The bomb he wore was gonna blow him straight To paradise

Where he would spend eternity
In opulence and style

And all at once a little girl
Walked straight into his perfect world
She caught his eye, he looked at her
And she looked back and smiled.

She smiled into his face
With all the innocence of youth
And in that moment all at once
He understood the truth
He looked his hatred in the eye
And hatred looked away.
And there’s at least one terrorist
In paradise today.

When she smiled his soul awoke
His heart said, “that’s enough”
There’s no way in this world
You can betray this baby’s love
This act of hate is over
And if God will not forgive
He’ll have to pass on paradise
And let this baby live.

He winked at her and walked away
Without a single word
And in the evening news
They said an act of grace occurred
A human bomb exploded
But the damages were slight
Newsman said he evidently wired it wrong
And consequently detonated in a field

And died alone tonight

She smiled into his face
With all the innocence of youth
And in that moment all at once
He understood the truth
He looked his hatred in the eye
And hatred looked away.
And there’s at least one terrorist
In paradise today.

Love lifts you to heaven
That’s what gets you into heaven
Nothing but love lifts you to heaven
That’s what takes you to heaven .

“Borrowed & Blue” by L. K. Thayer (lyrics)

L. K. Thayer & Brian BecVar

Wiped the tears from my face
When I saw you walkin’ down the aisle
Sensed it would happen but thought
At least not for awhile
When you smiled at me I swear my heart
Was gonna break in two
Now I feel like something borrowed
And I’m feelin’ like something blue

Blue like the moon, blue like your eyes
How much in love you were, I didn’t realize
Now I feel like something borrowed
And I’m feelin’ like something blue

You only borrowed my love, when I gave it to you to hold onto
I wanna hold onto you now but nothin’s left except my love
And it’s true, I’m feelin’

Blue like the moon, blue like your eyes
How much in love you were, I didn’t realize
Now I feel like something borrowed
And I’m feelin’ like something blue
