Paying dues and learning vices

When the big guns start to shooting
With the bullets of deception, honey
With a smile upon your face
You're going from second hand to almost new

Well I try to live life eye to eye, to eye to eye
But I say, I find it far too tall, tall, tall, tall, tall

Show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme, gimme
You gimme gimme gimme temptation, baby
Show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme, gimme
You gimme gimme gimme temptation, baby

Sing along sing along baby
Sing along for the love of the children

And if this was to be true
Say I'd give all the tea in China
And maybe all the tulips
In Amsterdam

Well I try to live life eye to eye,
But I say, I find it far too tall, tall, tall, tall, tall

Show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme, GIMME
You gimme gimme gimme temptation
Show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme, GIMME
You gimme gimme gimme temptation

Sing along baby, for the love of the children

First you make me move
Until I'm so damn close
Take me back again, take me back again
They'll say I'm mighty thankful
But it's much too easy, good god y'all
Paying dues and learning vices
But no, but no, but oh no
You won't waste my fucking spirit

My spirit

Waste my spirit

Yeah, show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme, GIMME
Cause you gimme, GIMME
You gimme gimme gimme temptation
Show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme,
You gimme
You gimme gimme gimme temptation

I want peace, love and understanding
Peace, love and understanding
Peace, love and understanding
To the last

Sing along sing along baby
Sing along sing along baby
Sing along for the love of the children

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Well I try to live life eye to eye, to eye to eye
But I say, I find it far too tall, tall, tall, tall, tall

Say I find it far too tall

Jesse with the long hair....
Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
