Gino Vannelli – Ghost Train Lyrics

Hear the train whistle blow rolling down the line
Come to rescue this heart of mine
Hear the rumble and roar of the moonlight express
Our one last chance at a better world than this

(All aboard)
A better world than this
(All aboard)

Every traveler sat silent as a stone
A lot like but not quite flesh and bone
Yet I would not be dulled or driven to fright
By a train of the lost souls in the half light

Then a voice
From a hooded robe
Of black
Whispered, "Pale to me, here we go
There ain’t no
Turning back"

"All aboard", cried the train guy
Make ready for your magic mountain ride
Say goodbye to the world down below us
Here’s your one-way ticket to the other side
All aboard, the ghost train
Drop all your trappings at the door
Wave goodbye to the boy in the window
You won’t be seeing him anymore
Whoa, oh, whoa, whoa

Like a bat outta hell we shot into space
While down below in the blue-green glow, I saw a weeping face
It was the face of a child that cut me to the bone

And I heard him say, "Don’t go away, a-papa please come home"

Had no clue
As to who was crying
In the dark
But it hurt so bad
That I certainly had
A change of heart

"All aboard", cried the train guy
Make ready for your magic mountain ride
Say goodbye to the world down below us
Here’s your one-way ticket to the other side
All aboard, the ghost train
Drop all your trappings at the door
Wave goodbye to the boy in the window
You won’t be seeing him anymore

(All aboard)
Oh no no
(All aboard)
Oh no no, whoa, whoa

And so I left off the train, fell into my skin
Through mountains of Peru back to the land of the living
To a cottage in the woods into the arms of a woman
Who held my head to her belly and a-said, "We’re gonna have a son"

(We’re gonna have son)
Mmh, we’re gonna have son
(We’re gonna have son)

All aboard
All aboard
All aboard
The ghost train

Aston Merrygold – Share A Coke Lyrics

I set a rocket launcher
And landed on the moon
I take a trip to China
In my hot air balloon
Swam the deepest oceans
From London to Peru
I stay awake all night
Just to think about

You and I
Make simple something special
All we do is try
Cause trying is acceptable
Wishing you could be
Right here next to me (to me)

So when you’re mad
Or feeling blue
Don’t be so cold
Cause here’s the truth
Of all the things on my list to do
I’d rather just share a coke with you

I could travel across the canyon
Then sail upon a cruise
Bungee jump in Paris

Or party in Cancun
There’s always something missing
If I can’t be with you (you, you)

Oh because, you and I
Make simple something special
All we do is try
Cause trying is acceptable
Wishing you could be
Right here next to me (to me)

So when you’re mad
Or feeling blue
Don’t be so cold
Cause here’s the truth
Of all the things on my list to do
I’d rather just share a coke with you

With you, with you, with you
With you, with you, with you
Of all the thing son, my list to do
I’d rather just share a coke with you

Future – Mask Off lyrics

[Intro]
Call it how it is
Hendrix
I promise, I swear, I swear
You heard, spit it, yo

[Chorus]
Percocets, molly, Percocets
Percocets, molly, Percocets
Rep the set, gotta rep the set
Chase a check, never chase a bitch
Mask on, fuck it, mask off
Mask on, fuck it, mask off
Percocets, molly, Percocets
Chase a check, never chase a bitch
Don’t chase no bitches

[Verse 1]
Two cups, toast up with the gang
From food stamps to a whole ‘nother domain
Out the bottom, I’m the livin’ proof (Super)
Ain’t compromising, half a million on the coupe
Drug houses, lookin’ like Peru
Graduated, I was overdue
Pink molly, I can barely move
Ask about me, I’m gon’ bust a move
Rick James, thirty-three chains
Ocean air, cruisin’ Biscayne
Top off, that’s a liability
Hit the gas, boostin’ my adrenaline
