"One Lovely Day" (2012)

One Lovely Day lyrics - Citizen Cope

[Verse 1:]
She won't give in,
She won't crack a smile or a grin.
She won't give in,
But she sure is different.

It's written in red
All in her eyes,
There's no disguise.
Well, she lost so much in Tivoli.

[Chorus:]
Together we could go,
To where there ain't no more pain,
Together we could fly,
To where there's time for you and I.
Together we could walk
To the river, stand with the families,
Move to the sound of the band from Atlantis,
One lovely day,
One lovely day,
One lovely day,
One lovely day.

[Verse 2:]
She won't let on,
The feelings she got ain't so strong,
She won't let on,
But I'm never gonna leave her alone.

It's written in red
All in her eyes,
There's no disguise.
Well she lost so much in Tivoli.

[Chorus x2]

Something To Believe In lyrics - Citizen Cope

They say that loving yourself
Is loving someone else
It’s like you've always been right there
When I needed you

Standing in the night
Trying to get it right
Coz this here life will test you
Over and over and over again

You keep giving me
Something to believe in
And I keep giving all
‘Cause the walls are falling down

You keep giving me
Something to believe in
And I keep giving all
‘Cause the walls are falling down

‘Cause the walls are falling down
‘Cause the walls are falling down
‘Cause the walls are falling down

Is it impossible to be learned?
Is it impossible to be taught?
‘Cause everybody could be burned
And anybody could get caught

Standing in the night
Trying to get it right
Coz this here life will test you
Over and over and over again

You keep giving me
Something to believe in
And I keep giving all
‘Cause the walls are falling down

You keep giving me
Something to believe in
And I keep giving all
‘Cause the walls are falling down

‘Cause the walls are falling down
‘Cause the walls are falling down
‘Cause the walls are falling down
‘Cause the walls are falling

Dancer From Brazil lyrics - Citizen Cope

I dreamt of cash in my head
I dreamt of princess in foreign lands
I dreamt of love and affection
My lord’s blessings

I asked answers to the questions
They got so many guessing
And they all point the same direction
The same point that I’m missing

My dancer from Brazil
A love I can’t conceal
I’ve been after love for years
And I think I’m getting near
To my dancer from Brazil
From Brazil

Back Then lyrics - Citizen Cope

Before the laws and the social orders
Before the cause of the lieutenant's orders
Before the rise of pop culture
Before the guards at the borders
Before the expectation led to life's frustrations
Before the path to salvation was cloudy by the deep depths of temptation

[Chorus]
Back then, it was alright to pretend
That all we really had was within and a little sky to spin
Back then, love had a place to stay
And wasn't getting turned away
It took my whole life to realize it's just a blink away to back then

With holy sons, holy daughters, holy sisters, holy brothers, holy skies, holy waters
For those who came before us on the way to what's come before us
Before the expectations led to life's frustrations
Before the path to salvation was clouded by the deep depths of temptation

[Chorus]

DFW lyrics - Citizen Cope

I was at DFW, I had to call you
I had to say goodbye to my baby today
Reminded of the days abode to save the air force base
Well boo, you are a star, you always are
You are so full of grace
And we ain't spoken in so so long, but I think about you everyday
It's been a hard living, 'cuz you never know
When you be lifted from the gift of living
I try to keep it hidden, but the tears burn down my face
She came to me from heaven, but right now I gotta put her on a 727
I promised it'd be different, but it makes me lie today

If all we have is a story to pass and a memory to embrace
And all of this, I had to say goodbye to my baby today
I had to say bye bye to my baby [x2]
Had to say bye bye, goodbye, goodbye to my baby today

I had to say goodbye, goodbye, goodbye to my baby today [x4]

Peace River lyrics - Citizen Cope

I come from a place
Run by a man named Mr. Paige
He took everything and he wanted more
A gun and a knife and he'd use the law

He'd smack you in the head in public
He'd kick you down and he'd think nothing of it
Keep your head down, swallow your pride
If you wanna live to see the night and

I guess I had my fill
Of playing from the valley to the top of the hill
And even though I got away
I couldn't shake Mr. Paige

And I've fulfilled all my desires
I couldn't put out the fire
Things going in my head
That I need him put to rest

So I will take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Checked on day been giving me a call
And I'm done fallin'

So I will take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Swimming in the Peace River for more
Oh ho, darling

I packed my bags and went
To a place I promise I'd never been
Coming from a cowarly stance
It turned me into a cowardly man

Y'all wouldn't believe what I've seen
Mr. Paige, he was broke at the knees
Somebody so brave and strong
Just turned weak and worn

The fear, it disappeared
And the hate it followed it
To a place it occupied
Be replaced by love and lies

So I will take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Checked on day been giving me a call
And I'm done fallin'

So I will take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Swimming in the Peace River for more
Oh ho, darling

For A Dollar lyrics - Citizen Cope

Moved to the city to settle a vendetta
Ran from a stellar to the hands of Isabella
Was a good earner, got a little butter
Moved to Calcutta, got rich by the summer
Learned that an eye for an eye made the whole world blind
City by city, they built sin city
Mr. Benjamin must have got or needs a schilling
'Cuz he'd rather not walk in the gobs from the prison

And there ain't nowhere this lonely road
This lonely road won't go
What pleases your heart
It's not always what eases your spirit or your soul
For a dollar, will you heal she?
For a dollar, will you feed he?
For a dollar, would you mind explaining to me why today got bought by tomorrow?
For a dollar, will you hold me?
For a dollar, will you love me?
For a dollar, would you mind explaining to me why today got bought by tomorrow?

Southern Nights lyrics - Citizen Cope

Southern night.
Have you ever felt a southern night?
Free as a breeze, not to mention the tree.
Whistling tunes that you know and love so.
Southern nights, just as good even when close your eye.
I apologize to anyone who can truly say that he has found a better way.
Feels so good, it feels so good,
It’s frightening wish I could, stop this world from fighting.

La da da da da da la da da da
La da da da da da da da da da

Southern skies. Have you ever noticed southern skies?
Its precious beauty lies just beyond the eye.
It goes running through your soul like the stories told of old.
Old man, he and his dog that walked that old hand.
Every flower touches his cold hand,
As he slowly walked by weeping willows they would cry for joy, joy.
Mystery, like there’s so many others in the trees.
Go in the night, in the southern sky.
Southern night, feels so good,
It’s frightening wish I could, stop this world from fighting.

Southern night.

A Wonder lyrics - Citizen Cope

It's been 18 months, you stopped smoking cigarettes
And quit the job, put the serpent to bed
Then you moved, played the Russian Roulette
And now she got the smile, and a skip in her step, and now
It's a fine time just to see your face
It's a fine time, just a touch of shade
It's a fine time just to feel embraced
It's a fine time, such a fine time

[Chorus x2]
A wonder, it would be so nice if I could take you with me tonight
And how, how you add to my quality of life if I can take you with me

I roll dice on a seven, double down on 11
Try to be forgiven for the sins I committed
Wish to include you in my mission
Travel everyday with the lost and the gifted
It would take me to the south of France
Even though I never had a chance
I've gotta go to Mexico just to feed my soul
Wish you would come along, come along

[Chorus x2]

Summertime lyrics - Citizen Cope

From the hot to cold, spring to the fall
You and I was meant to be together in love
Something ‘bout a wound down in my soul
Something on my mind easy be told

3 steps, 3 steps behind these 2 hands
These 2 hands of mine
You’ve got that 1 thing that can make a man blind
And grow in my past fame

In the summertime, in the wintertime
You talk to us, you talk to us
In the summertime, in the wintertime
You talk to us, you talk to us

In the summertime, in the wintertime
You talk to us, you talk to us
In the summertime, in the wintertime
You talk to us, you talk to us

From the hot to cold, spring to the fall
You and I was meant to be together in love
Something ‘bout a wound down in my soul
Something on my mind easy be told

3 steps, 3 steps behind these 2 hands
These 2 hands of mine
You’ve got that 1 thing that can make a man blind
And grow in my past fame

In the summertime, in the wintertime
You talk to us, you talk to us
In the summertime, in the wintertime
You talk to us, you talk to us

In the summertime, in the wintertime
You talk to us, you talk to us
In the summertime, in the wintertime
You talk to us, you talk to us

"The Rainwater LP" (2010)

Keep Askin' lyrics - Citizen Cope

Keep askin'
How long will my love it last
Always
Keep askin'
How long will my days they pass
Always
Keep asking me my love
Keep asking help from above

There comes a time
And a place when
You kind of mind living
Day to day when
Country to country
And state to state where
They all got their leaders
Who all push their wheight
Another mother lost
Another child today
Bet tommorow that will
Be yesterday's
Bet you double that
Some people enraged
On the corner
With their voices
Raising judgement day

Keep askin'
How long will my love it last
Always
Keep askin’
How long will my days they pass
Always
Keep askin’ me my love
Keep asking help from above
Keep askin’ me my love
Keep asking help from above

Healing Hands lyrics - Citizen Cope

I will never forget your healing hands my love
I thought my heart had stopped
I swore I had given up
I will never forget your healing hands my love
You gave me daylight you gave me sunlight

Turn the tape recorder on
He just left Jackie O for Marilyn Monroe
We're all bought and sold
For tobacco, firearms and alcohol
What's a pocket full of gold
Without a woman that you could hold
Can't afford to be on the back burner no more
Now I got a lot of places to go

Cause the actions of a few
Have put a world in harms way
And history has proven
That they killed our leaders dead
And I don't know about your right and wrong
I got a muse
From the east to the west
All I know is if I never said it before
I'm going to say it with my last breath

I will never forget your healing hands my love
I thought my heart had stopped
I swore I had given up
I will never forget your healing hands my love
You gave me daylight you gave me sunlight

Find something you can sell
Set you on a trail
Have a ball and a belle
Buy a ticket out of Hell
Not as far as I could tell
Very Well

Bubba I'm a bust your tail
My uncle Clarence hit
The hammer with nail
Wash your hand before
You come to the meal
Cut out the light
Cause it comes with a bill

Cause the violence of a few
Have put a World in harms way
And history has proven that they
Killed our leaders dead

Well I don't know about your right and wrong
I got a muse from the east to the west
All I know is if I never said it before
I'm going to say it with my last breath

I will never forget your healing hands my love
I thought my heart had stopped
I swore I had given up
I will never forget your healing hands my love
You gave me daylight you gave me sunlight

I will never forget your healing hands my love
I thought my heart had stopped
I swore I had given up
I will never forget your healing hands my love
You gave me daylight you gave me twilight

Never forget...

I Couldn't Explain Why lyrics - Citizen Cope

In a couple of hours
The morning is coming
And I'm hittin' the door runnin,
The gasoline is burning
And I couldn't explain why

The message that I have been given
Could have us drown
In the river
Still I gotta deliver it
And I couldn't explain why

I hold a couple of grudges
Could have had a couple of touches
If I hadn't had a couple of crutches
And I couldn't explain why

The world keeps turning
The sun keeps burning
For all to learn what
Heavens only knows
Why do some
Get taken too young
All these answers
That heaven only knows

The wheels are turning
Churching all types of emotion
Strong as the oceans
And I couldn't explain why

This message that I have been given
Could have me drown by the river
Still I gotta deliver it
And I couldn't explain why

I hold a couple of grudges
Could have had a couple of touches
If I hadn't had a couple on crutches
And I couldn't explain why
