Chung Ha – Call It Love Lyrics

[청하 “Call It Love” 가사]
[Verse 1]
웃을 수 있을 때
많이 웃어둘걸
너를 떠올리면
아파지기 전에
[Verse 2]
누릴 수 있을 때
맘껏 누려볼걸
사랑에 빠져서
들떠있던 맘을
[Pre-Chorus]
새벽 공기만
조금 달라졌을 뿐
사랑인 것은
다를 게 없는데
너로 채워지던 날부터
비워내는
이 순간까지
[Chorus]
I, I call it love
I, I call it love
너를 품던 날도
너를 놓던 밤도
I, I call it love
I call it love
내겐 다 사랑이야
그럴 수 있던 건
[Verse 3]
어쩌면 그렇게
아름답기만 해
누군가 말하는
사랑이라는 게
[Pre-Chorus]
내게는 벅찼던
때론 벅차오르던
그 순간들이
다를 게 없는데
누군가는 고갤 젓겠죠
어쩌면 나의 그대마저도
[Chorus]
I, I call it love
I, I call it love
너를 품던 날도
너를 놓던 밤도
I, I call it love
I call it love
내겐 다 사랑이야
그럴 수 있던 건
[Bridge]
맘이 흐려져서
내가 지쳐서
그댈 포기했다
생각 말아요
정말 나만 생각했다면
끝은 달라졌겠죠, oh
[Chorus]
I, I call it love
I, I call it love
너를 품던 날도
너를 놓던 밤도
I, I call it love
이렇게 아파도
여전히 사랑이야
그때도 지금도

Boston Manor – Playing God Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Hujan – Sedih Lyrics

Kini ku sepi tak mahu buang masa lagi mencari – mencari
Dinding nya terlalu tinggi ku cuma mahu tahu apa di sebelah – tak salah
Tunduk elak memang helah nya
Tangan umur 3 tahun cuma genggam satu semesta
Tak sakit
Tak sakit nawaitu nya ada
Tergesa gesa rasa gelisah ini pasrah
Ku lihat kabur ku harus akur aku tunduk

Bloxx – Coming Up Short Lyrics

[Chorus]
She said, “I want to be yours” but I’m coming up short
And I don’t know why
She said, “I want to be yours” and I’m going blind
And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why
[Break]
[Chorus]
She said, “I want to be yours” but I’m coming up short
And I don’t know why
She said, “I want to be yours” and I’m going blind
And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why
[Outro]
I’m coming up short, I’m coming up short

I’m coming up short, I’m coming up short [Verse 1]
I think you’ve gone too far
And now I’m losing you
And I’ve had the cleanest sheet
And   now   I’m back in   the backseat
It’s colder where you are
And   I know that you find it hard
But I think that   it’s   just   a game that   I’ve got to   play
[Pre-Chorus]
Tell me
Oh, won’t you tell me? Oh, won’t you? Oh, won’t you? Oh, won’t you tell me

What you’re thinking? [Chorus]
She said, “I want to be yours” but I’m coming up short
And I don’t know why
She said, “I want to be yours” and I’m going blind
And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why
[Verse 2]
I think we’ve gone too far
And now I’ll tell the truth
That I’ve had the weirdest week
And now I’m back in the backseat
It’s colder when we’re apart
And I know that you find it hard
But I think that’s it’s just a game that I’ve got to play
[Pre-Chorus]
Tell me
Oh, won’t you tell me?

Chloe Lilac – Cigarettes Lyrics

Wake up needing
Your nicotine
And I’m fiending
Got trouble breathing
I’m a sucker
For you, oh oh
I can’t help it
Baby, you’re so cruel
Hey, even though
You’re always next to me
Baby, I
I never wanna leave, oh, oh, oh
Just wish you’d hold me
Like you hold your cigarettes
Your cigarettes
Under your nose
Between your lips
When you’re needing me
I’ll be your fix
Baby, I’m a sucker
For you, oh oh
I can’t help it
Baby, you’re so cruel
Even though
You’re always next to me
Baby, I
I never wanna
Just wish you’d hold me
Like you hold your cigarettes
Your cigarettes
Cigarettes, cigarettes. cigarettes ,cigarettes
Cigarettes

Sel – Lengvai Lyrics

Aplink tiktai migla
Dangus tuojau pavirs drėgme
Ir aš jaučiu joje tave
Tavo dvelksmas šalia
Šalin blogas mintis
Pasidalink su manimi
Savo šiluma
Tavo dvelksmas šalia
Rytas ateis
Kaip ateina mirtis išdidi
Bet prieš mirtį dažnai
Širdyje nurimsti visai
Išnyks veidai migloj
Tarp begalybės kitų vaizdų
Eikš pas mane
Tavo dvelksmas šalia
Ilsėkis nuo tylos
Ilsėkis nuo minios triukšmų
Nuo jų pabėk paslapčia
Tavo dvelksmas šalia
Rytas ateis
Kaip ateina mirtis išdidi
Bet prieš mirtį dažnai
Širdyje nurimsti visai
Neklausk manės kas
Atsitiks po bemieges nakties
Aš nieko nežinau būk rami
Nežinau išties

Geographer – You Say You Love Me Lyrics

[Intro]
You say you love me [x4]
[Verse 1]
You say you love me but you don’t
You say you need me but you know I just can’t cope
With all the dreaming and the hope
You just want to use me up and leave me even let me go
[Hook]
You say you love me
I wanna know what you mean
I need to know how you feel
You say you love me
[Verse 2]
I know you want me in your life
It’s just the way you want me that doesn’t feel so right
I know you’re tryna ease my mind
Oh, but it’s not so reassuring if you don’t know for certain
You’re everything I wanted
You’re everything and more
You keep looking over my shoulder at that open door
This world is full of silence
And I am just a thought
You’ll never find me if you keep on looking for the only one
[Hook]
[Bridge]
You say you love me [x4]
[Hook [x4]]

Gregory Isaacs – My Relationship Lyrics

How you’re getting on in college? Hi, love! Now there’s a lot of rumours been going around
Friends are trying to slander our name

Wild Wes – Get Da Funk Outta Ya Lyrics

Get the funk outta ya! Hey!

Chase Atlantic – Even Though I’m Depressed Lyrics

Stay patient
All I have to do is stay patient
Life’s changing
So I might have to make some rearrangements
I roll the dice and I feel so alive and then I’m lifeless
And I don’t like it
But honestly, the irony is priceless ’cause
I’m caught on the fence
I’m either happy or I wish I was dead
My life is a mess
I kinda like it even though I’m depressed
I’m caught on the fence
I’m either happy or I wish I was dead
My life is a mess
I f*cking love it even though I’m depressed
Only call it a living ’cause I’m still alive
Only open up the doors if they’re suicide
I’m anxious to my core but I’m doing fine
Try to keep my distance from the law
Keep my peace of mind
You can’t change in a day
So I spend every second taking care of my brain
I might fill up all the emptiness with diamonds and chains
And if you wanna get to steppin’ you’ll get punched in the face
But it’s alright
I’m caught on the fence
I’m either happy or I wish I was dead
My life is a mess
I kinda like it even though I’m depressed
I’m caught on the fence
I’m either happy or I wish I was dead
My life is a mess
I f*cking love it even though I’m depressed
Well even though I’m depressed I’m not sorry
I don’t wanna leave this bed at all
I’ve got a brick on my chest
Hell is gripping my legs
And there’s a demon, he’s ten foot tall
But honestly, he doesn’t seem like much of a threat
I’m caught on the fence
I’m either happy or I wish I was dead
My life is a mess
I kinda like it even though I’m depressed
I’m caught on the fence
I’m either happy or I wish I was dead
My life is a mess
I f*cking love it even though I’m depressed

Throwing Muses – Milan Lyrics

Get out of here
One step backward
You lost your way
Your haunted virtue
You threw it away What makes you gold-flecked? You talk backwards like i do
Hold still
Your cold voodoo just smacked her upside the head
Blood squeezed through your veins
You wear memories as false pain
Who better than you to bless her
Baptize the dead? Get out of here
Warm blooded
Cold hearted
You can’t finish what you started
Clear sailing
Murky water
You’re still the smoothest talker
All twisted up
Ham-fisted
You don’t want the devil’s daughter
Wasted
Inebriated
You don’t want her
But you brought her here
All’s fair in new orleans
So spend the night whimpering
Can’t stand the heat? All’s fair in new orleans
So spend the night whispering
Can’t stand the heat?

Boston Manor – Brand New Kids Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Flesh and sinew, you’re poetry and soil
Leave nothing on the bone
Your apple never spoils
Time’s infinite   and   so is my   kiss
You’re swimming in the stars
You’re swimming   in the bliss
[Pre-Chorus]
I gotta get out of bed because I’m floating away
Just like a hole inthe head, I know I’m falling down
Don’t wanna hit the ground
[Chorus]
I’m in love with a drug and it loves me too
I don’t need no one else cause I’ve got what I want right here next to you
Cause we do what we want when we’re all brand new
We’re the brand new kids and you won’t see us cause we look like
Look like you
[Verse 2]
I’ll swallow you, the roses on your lips
The music on your tongue
The feeling of your skin
So float me down the river in a tube
It’s only me and you
And I’m a lead balloon
[Chorus]
I’m in love with a drug and it loves me too
I don’t need no one else cause I’ve got what I want right here next to you
Cause we do what we want when we’re all brand new

Look like you

Hujan – Oh No! Lyrics

Anak indie yang tak tahu malu
Come on! Oh no! Aww aww aww
Semakin jauh dirimu ku rasa
Melodi sedih dalam kepala

Jawabmu
Aww aww aww
Lemah ragaku tak kenal rupa
Belum pernah ku lihat indahnya

Lpb Poody – Kill The Beat Lyrics

[Chorus]
Kill the beat, I’ma hit it with a hook

Buckin’ since a jit, yeah my nigga double K
Cut as f*ck, cut the grass if you see a snake
Gettin’ to the cake like all I wanna do is bake
All my niggas eatin’, might as well go grab a plate
I’m really in the field like I play for Florida State
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
All my niggas shooters, they some real steppers
Glock twenty-three, call him Devin Hester
We the glizzy gang, remember runnin’ with Berettas

No Moses, I pray but I just gotta stay focused
People always tell me you the one so bitch I’m chosen
Swimmin’ in that p*ssy, I just dove in her lil ocean
Hit her then I quit her so you know her heart is broken
In my own zone while I’m sippin’ on this potion
Slidin’ on the beat, bitch I’m smoother than some lotion
Freestylin’ bitch, ’cause that’s what I do
Freestyle for him and freestyle for who
No I’m not a crip, I’m all about a blue
Five double-oh, just don’t forget the two
It’s a murder scene, ’cause I really kill the beat
Think I was beefin’ with the beat
Yeah I done caught a first degree
RIP, let this bitch rest in peace, look
[Chorus]
Kill the beat, I’ma hit it with a hook

Yeah I know you feel the beat, look
I say I know you feel the beat, look

Chloe Lilac – Special Lyrics

Yeah I know you’re one of those guys
The artistic type with them womanizer eyes
Yesterday reminds   me   of deep blue
Sitting   in that staircase with you
Tried to   justify the reasons you ain’t my baby
We both know those are lies
But when I’m with you the world melts away
Wish you would be mine again
All my friends go to art school
Shit I guess that makes me feel kinda cool and
I feel like I’m drowning in a kiddie pool
You say that I’m so special, you think that you’re so special
Like this was something special
Don’t call me special anymore
Remember when I hated your guts
Some stupid shit, guess that’s what was up
Though you’ll talk nice just to get in my pants
Then leave me with no warnings in advance
Said you were with it but I think that you’re high
But we both know babe, I don’t mind
When I’m with you the world melts away
Wish you would be mine again
All my friends go to art school
Shit I guess that makes me feel kinda cool and
I feel like I’m drowning in a kiddie pool
You say that I’m so special, you think that you’re so special
Like this was something special
Don’t call me special anymore
All my friends go to art school
Shit I guess that makes me feel kinda cool and
I feel like I’m drowning in a kiddie pool
You say that I’m so special, you think that you’re so special
Like this was something special
Don’t call me special anymore

Lpb Poody – New Heater Lyrics

That p*ssy lacking
You know we double backing
[Verse 1]
Aye hold on
I just seen an opp turn this bitch around
Pray that he don’t run cause if he do we gon’ walk em down
We got hella shots me and them niggas just to go around
That smoke is up and it’s stuck and it ain’t coming down
[Hook]
New Glock a new k just bought a new chop
A new blunt a new 8th to smoke a new opp
New sauce a new juice I’m talking 2Pac
New flow a new swag this shit just too hot

Stack that paper like some lego just to stash it in the shoebox
Trapping gotta lay low I be walking round with two knots
Stop lying on your dick trying to come up you need a new plot
Saying you gone do this and that but we know you not
This that new heater I’m solo surfing in this two-seater
Feed her like she never ate before I got a new eater
Achoo my flow so sick I caught a new fever
SIppin on that lean bitch I got juice call me a two-liter
Niggas claiming they want beef I grab the paper plate
Mac sauce add it to the meat it got a better taste
Never skip a lesson come to class so I can demonstrate
Rapping painting pictures for you niggas I can illustrate
Clutching on my semi hand stay up on my pistol
Quinn in the cut ready to shoot like Derek Fisher
In the hole tryna rebound some shit like I’m a center
Niggas be referees not in the game they so official
[Hook]
New Glock a new k just bought a new chop
A new blunt a new 8th to smoke a new opp
New sauce a new juice I’m talking 2Pac
New flow a new swag this shit just too hot
[Verse 3]
My nigga creeping it ain’t no motherf*cking sleeping
That smoke up in the air so puff and pass while you chiefing
We beefing well let me go and grab the season
Tryna make me cut the barrel but I won’t cry for no reason
Can’t trust a bitch cause all you hoes be deceiving
Like Steven, I told him I can’t wait ’til we get even
Can’t believe it these niggas showing too many signs of treason
Caught the p*ssy nigga lacking left him dead and now they grieving
My niggas came from nothing robbing clubbing and thieving
No time for discussions say pull up and now we leaving
Caught the p*ssy out in public he ducking dodging and weaving
He claiming that we beefing its pressure he gotta eat it
[Hook]
New Glock a new k just bought a new chop
A new blunt a new 8th to smoke a new opp
New sauce a new juice I’m talking 2Pac
New flow a new swag this shit just too hot
[Outro]
Aye c’mon man 2019 is my year nigga … stepping on all these f*ck niggas necks mack truck status…
Let’s smoke a new opp
Oh yeah
