lyrics CD X

BUT I AIN’T GOT YOU       Paroles et musique : J.A. Brassett.

I’ve got a car, I’ve got a pad

I’ve got everything

Any man could wanna have

But I ain’t got you

Yes I ain’t got you

Crying all the time

Till the cold daylight

Cos I ain’t got you

 

So get on a bus, step on a train

Get this poor boy

Out of this pain

Cos I ain’t got you

Yes I ain’t got you

I’ve got a diamond ring

That ain’t doing anything

Cos I ain’t got you.

EVERY TIME I SEE YOU     Paroles et musique : J.A. Brassett.

Every time I call you

The telephone just rings

Every time I need some help

You just let me sing

And I’m still singing

Same old tune.

 

Every time I see you

You always seem so full

You’ve got everything I need

But you don’t even see me

I’m standing by the wall

Kind of invisible

 

You break my heart

You leave me cold

I don’t even know what’s going on

But I love you all of the time

Because you’re mine.

 

I wanna tell you

What it’s all about

I wanna tell you all the inside out’s

I wanna tell you the reason why.

 

People like us

We’ve got no use you see

People like us

We just love to bleed

And I’m bleeding all of the time.

FURTHER THAN JUPITER      paroles et musique :    J.A. Brassett.

 

Outside in the rain

Just a bus ride away

Just a ticket from your place.

Step down into the road

Look for you

Address unknown.

 

Windows with eyes that don’t see

Nobody’s talking

And there’s no air to breathe.

Just when I think that I’m

Breaking through the fog.

 

You’re further than Jupiter

The other side of Mars

 

How come a boy like me

Could wander so far.

 

You’re further than Jupiter

The other side of Mars

Outside of the universe

Further than the stars.

 

Just when I think that I’m

Gonna make it this time

GOT A BROKEN HEART    paroles et musique : J.A. Brassett. 

Have you heard it on the news I’ve got a broken heart

Have you heard it on the news I’ve got a broken heart

You’ve got me rocking and a reeling

I swear you’ve got no feelings.

 

I’ve got the hots for you mamma, why do you treat me so cold

I’ve got the hots for you mamma, how come you treat me so cold

Won’t you just throw me a line

You know I’ll help you out some time.

 

You make me wanna run and hide, you make me wanna scream and shout

You make me wanna run and hide, you make me wanna scream and shout

Now I’m telling everybody

The way you hang me out.

 

When I see you I wanna run and hide

When I’m with you I wanna break down and cry

You’re just a chain of misery

And it all comes back to me

I don’t wanna see you anymore

I’m gonna shoot you down for sure.

KEEP THAT HAMMER DOWN       paroles et musique : J.A. Brassett. 

Got a thousand miles on my shoes

Eight wheels a rollin

I’m still rollin along.

 

Got a two week shirt on my back

All my trouble in a sack

I’m still rollin, still rollin along.

 

Keep that hammer down boy

Keep that hammer down

Wheels keep rollin around boy

Keep that hammer down.

 

Chimney stacks not burning now

Everything’s just falling down

But I’m still rolling, still rolling along.

 

Diesel chuggin in my pants

That engine’s smellin, brakeman’s yellin

Oh, I’m comin home.

 

KID IN A CONVERTIBLE    paroles et musique : J.A. Brassett/ Frederic Leclair 

Kid in a convertible

Better watch out

Drug dealing blues

That’s what he’s all about

Got a big wad of money

The size of a brick

He ain’t fooling me

He’s just somebody’s sidekick

Just a trick…

 

He’s got flames on his engine

Got big fat tyres

But he ain’t fooling me

He’s just small fry

Big fish will shoot him

As soon as pass by

There’s only one thing he loves

That’s my my my money.

 

There’s blood on the streets

There’s blood in the fields

There’s blood on your sleeve

And you don’t even feel alright

At the end of the line

There’s a man with a gun

He don’t take shit from anyone

If you cross his path

Take heed of what I said

You step out of line

He’ll just shoot you dead.

 

R’n R HISTORY         Paroles et musique : J.A. Brassett. 

Saw you rolling down the street last night

In a little red coupé

I was chit chattin Cadillacing traffic lights

Said « You wanna come out to play »

Everybody’s down the strip

On a drag race trip

How about you and me

We can have a ball

We can beat ‘em all

Let’s do some rock and roll history

Can you feel it ?

 

It was a coffee bar scene

Down in Baker Street

We were bopping the whole night long

Saw you by the stand

I took you by the hand

And we started dancing

You said you were a secretary

I said I’m a bassman

Your eyes looked up to the sky

You said « You’re just a fool

You’re not even cool »

I don’t care,

I wanna do some rock and roll history.

Can you feel it ?

 

Meanwhile over here

In the back seat of the flicks

I was helping you out

Trying to get some kicks

It feels so good to be out of the cold

The winter in this place

Is no fun at all

It seems to me

Whichever way you’re looking

There’s only one place to be

You can walk the line

Till the day you die

Better make a little rock and roll history. 

 

ROAD TO RUIN        paroles et musique : J.A. Brassett. 

I was a child I was a boy

And the whole world was my toy

When I started on the road to ruin.

 

Sixteen years old

A little bad, a little bold

Walking on the road to ruin.

 

Road to ruin

Road to ruin

Walking on the road to ruin.

 

Too angry to be told

I wanna live before I’m old

Walking on the road to ruin.

 

From the green fields of my home

To the mountains I did roam

Walking on the road to ruin.

 

Some people come and gone

But I still carry on

Walking on the road to ruin.

 

With my guitar in my hand

I’m still looking for the promised land

Walking on the road to ruin. 

 

SAW HER AGAIN     Paroles et musique : J.A Brassett. 

She gave me a smile and she said

I’m living all alone

You wanna walk me home

Everyone can see

So I decided to hang around

Walked that girl across that town

Got to her place

She said it’s getting late

 

I saw her again last night

I knew it was never to be

That girl’s got a hold on me

But she will never be mine

No matter how hard I try

I think of her every night

She’s got such a hold on me

She will never be mine.

 

So I decided to hang around

Walked that girl across the town

Such a long time ago

I just say So Ho

That’s the way it’s always been

Out of my heart

But in my dreams

That’s the way, that’s just the way.

TIP TAP ON THE BOARDS    paroles et musiques :  J.A. Brassett. 

You say you can’t carry on

With a burden on your back

You saw your last pay about a month ago

And you know that job ain’t coming back

Then the rent man comes a knocking

With a tip tap on the boards

He don’t care for your sorry tale

Say’s he’ll put you out that door.

 

Ain’t no use to worry

Or to wish your life away

No use losing sleep about it

Or crying all through the day

As sure as the sun will rise

And set at the close of the day

I’ll tell you from the heart

It won’t get better anyway.

 

You know it’s the summer time

And that old sun will always shine

You know your broken heart

Will get better if you give it the time

Then the debt man comes a knocking

With a tip tap on the door

He ran off with all your money

Now he’s just come back for some more.
