My Hallelujah

  • 04:03 Lyrics
    My Hallelujah

    My Hallelujah
     
    Loved my baby, ain't that enough?
    Why'd you have to go and make a widow of
    My Hallelujah
    Now he's gone and I'm still here
    Nothing for me in the atmosphere
    No Hallelujah  
     
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    All that I have left
    Are thoughts of a photograph
    Black suit, gold ring, white dress  
     
    Maybe you're just too far away
    To hear me call for my baby
    My Hallelujah
    Because if you were me, you'd have come through
    Do anything that you had to do
    For Hallelujah  
     
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    All that I have left
    Is a ghost from Christmas past
    White lights, green wreath, red dress  
     
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    All that I have left
    Is his voice and it's fading fast
    Grey sky, brown box, black dress

    Labor of Love

    Labor of Love
     
    You found me when I was hungry
    We got fat off a pipe dream 
    And it's a sad, sad thing when you're through
    With a fantasy  
     
    I lost the fight to keep you
    On my terms, maybe no one could
    It may be a mad, mad thing to let go
    But I think you knew I would  
     
    You were a labor of love
    I held on to you with a boxing glove
    Now you're ringside looking up
    You were a labor of love  
     
    You can try to make friends from lovers
    But wine will never be water again
    And you can't hold on to a man 
    Who won't be held that way  
     
    You were a labor of love
    I held on to you with a boxing glove
    Now you're ringside looking up
    You were a labor of love  
     
    Oh what a ruckus in my head
    Oh what a burden is this heart
    It's starting to get easier
    And that's the hardest part

    Lovesick

    Lovesick 
     
    I'm lovesick, sick of love
    My heart's just about had enough
    I'm tired of games and all that stuff
    I can't find no one to fall in it with
    I'm lovesick, sick of love  
     
    Everybody's got a song
    It serenades the night along
    But some melodies rise and fall in minor keys
    Missing harmonies  
     
    I'm lovesick, sick of love
    My heart's just about had enough
    I'm tired of games and all that stuff
    I can't find no one to fall in it with
    I'm lovesick, sick of love  
     
    Poets and philosophers
    Write it down in prose and verse
    They give you something you can quote to someone else
    If you think it helps  
    Me, I'm lovesick, sick of love
    My heart's just about had enough
    I'm tired of games and all that stuff
    I can't find no one to fall in it with
    I'm lovesick 
     
    Some folks put the bottle down
    The day they wake up on the ground
    I never drank much but I know how it feels to drown
    Trouble out

    The Good Life

    The Good Life
     
    There's an empty vase
    Where roses would go
    If flowers were the kind of thing he thought of
    On his way home
     
    But he's honey sweet
    And I'm a honey bee
    And our love will still be buzzing when the seasons change
    And the flowers have gone
     
    He's got me high
    All the clouds are jealous
    He's Christmas in July
    He's the summertime
    He's got me high
    Like a bottle of red or a bottle of white
    And if he's half the man I think he is, he's all I need
    To live the Good Life
    The Good Life
     
    My heart
    Has been rich and poor
    But if we never have more than we do right now
    Then I'm rich for sure

    Leaving For Memphis

    Leaving For Memphis
     
    A coat's no match for the wind outside
    Winter's come early this year
    And it feels like Chicago has just lay down to sleep
    Her colors have all disappeared  
     
    He was born here in this city
    I moved here from a Tennessee town
    With a suitcase and a promise, from a man who said he loved me
    But we're all out of love now  
     
    So I'm leaving for Memphis
    Just watch me go
    Leaving for Memphis
    Where the Mississippi rolls
    It takes a good strong current
    To move a heart sometimes
    When you've lost your direction
    Things like that are hard to find  
     
    It's hard to know what to do sometimes
    So you step back and wait for a sign
    You can wait for a taxi; you can wait for an airplane
    Or you can wait for a man to make up his mind  
     
    So I'm leaving for Memphis
    Just watch me go
    Leaving for Memphis
    Where the Mississippi rolls
    It takes a good strong current
    To move a heart sometimes
    When you've lost your direction
    Things like that are hard to find  
     
    When you've done everything that you can do
    When you've spent all your currency on words
    Maybe the silence of an empty room
    Will be the loudest thing he's ever heard  
     
    So I'm leaving for Memphis
    Just watch me go
    Leaving for Memphis
    Where the Mississippi rolls
    It takes a good strong current
    To carry a heart away
    So I'm leaving, leaving, leaving
    Yes I'm Leaving, leaving, leaving
    I'm leaving for Memphis
    Unless he asks me to stay

    Let Me Come Over

    Let Me Come Over 
     
    All of my days are awash
    Without you here I am drowning
    And the sun from these Marlboro skies
    Cannot dry up the memory of you  
     
    Let me come over
    Let me come over
    Let me come over
    To you  
     
    It 'd take three thousand miles to your heart
    By bus plane or train or by magic
    If I rode each one back in time to reach you
    Would you be mine?  
     
    Let me come over
    Let me come over
    Let me come over
    To you  
     
    Darling my cup
    just filled right up
    It runneth right over  
     
    I watch for you like I'm waiting
    For company
    You once said all of your days were awash without me
    But you are without me  
     
    Let me come over
    Let me come over
    Let me come over

    Where Were You

    Where Were You  
     
    I am throwing punches in the air
    I can sweat and curse but nobody's there
    You said you'd find me no matter how I got lost
    Where were you when I needed you most  
     
    I am standing at the corner again
    Watching two roads cross, twist and bend
    You stood behind me no matter which way I chose
    Where were you when I needed you most
    Where were you when I needed you most  
     
    It is easy to lie together at night
    In the darkness, trouble in easy to hide
    You said you'd stay here until the daylight rose
    Where were you when I needed you most
    Where were you when I needed you most

    Ballad of Hank Williams

    Ballad Of Hank Williams
     
    My heart went to music
    My heart went to drink
    My soul, straight to music
    Kept me here in hard times I think  
     
    And I think I speak the gospel
    When I tell you this truth:
    That if Jesus wore my shoes
    He'd reach for the bottle too
     
    Long is the night
    Proud is the curtain call
    In the brightest light
    Dark are the shadows that fall  
     
    And that Lord's been a knockin'
    He's come to grant me my wish
    Because there are things worse than dying
    When you've been living like this  
     
    Long is the night
    Proud is the curtain call
    In the brightest light
    Dark are the shadows that fall  
     
    There's a song in everyone
    Mama told me when I was young
    Why was mine so short?
    Hell mama, where are you now?  
     
    When that sun takes its bow
    Oh Lord, lay my head down
    In the back seat of a Caddy
    With those wheels still spinnin' round
    With those wheels still spinnin' round

    Better At You

    Better At You 
     
    I wish I were better at being good at more things
    Like parties and dancing, take-offs and landings
    I wish I were better at being good at more things
    And you, I wish I were better at you  
     
    Your shades are drawn tight
    You're in there with the dark
    Sometimes I try to find you 
    Sometimes I catch a spark
    And I'll grasp for the light every time it comes
    But for you, no light will ever be enough
    And you, I wish I were better at you
    I wish I were better at you  
     
    It's not how you planned it
    And you'll be damned if
    You let anyone know
    But it's no secret
    And you can't keep it
    Here anymore  
     
    I wish I were better at being good at more things
    Like faith when the train wrecks, hope for the suspects
    I wish we were closer; that's my apology
    And you, I wish I were better at you
    I wish you were better at me
    I wish we were better
    I wish we were better

    Rain Cloud

    Rain Cloud  
     
    If you think you know this weather
    Stick around, it will change
    If you think you know this man
    He will do the same  
     
    He’s always been a quiet man
    Some days he’s quiet like a hurricane
    Our love is like a coastal town, storm winds blowing ‘round
    Now I'm waiting for the rain  
     
    'Cause he’s rolling like a rain cloud
    When his arms get heavy, he lets it all fall down
    Floods come, water so deep
    I swear sometimes we’re both going to drown
    He’s rolling like a rain cloud
    Rolling like a rain cloud  
     
    He's got thunder in his head
    Sometimes lightning’s coming out of his mouth
    I'm going to keep some candles burning tonight
    In case all the power goes out  
     
    Because he’s rolling like a rain cloud
    When his arms get heavy, he lets it all fall down
    Floods come, water so deep
    I swear sometimes we’re both going to drown
     
    He’s rolling like a rain cloud
    Tears fall from his eyes
    There's nothing I can say
    No words are going to keep us dry
    He’s rolling like a rain cloud
    But lost inside somewhere
    Is a man who used to be
    Such a blue sky
