Frozen Plasma – Irony Lyrics

Hey these may be the final words
We may ever get to say
So let’s not worry about small regrets
It’s too late for that anyway

Hey you eternal optimist
Have you still not had enough?
No place left to hang your trust
Shattered illusions fade to dust

If you could show me a true sign
That shining light that leads me down
A path I’d been in search of former life
I never saw but should have known

Hey you melancholy clown
Tell me how the story ends
Will it become another tragic tale
or nothing left here to retent

An ironic twist of fate
A scary view so far away
Yet I search the gray tomorrow
And wonder where you’ve gone
Some doors are better left unopened
Some things are better left unseen
Once you set it all in motion
Things will never be the same

Never be the same

Franz Ferdinand – Van Tango Lyrics

Van Tango had a mean old scene, Van Tango
Mean old scene, Van Tango
Van Tango had a mean old scene, Van Tango
Mean old scene, Van Tango
He worked night-shift at the opera
Mean old scene, Van Tango
Watching the girls go by
Girls go by, Van Tango
He’s singled out tonight
Singled out, Van Tango
He’s singled out every night
Singled out, Van Tango

Caretaker of the night
He’s the king of the night
Caretaker of the night
He’s the king of the night
Caretaker of the night
He’s the king of the night
Caretaker of the night
Watch out he’s the king of the night

Van Tango had a mean old scene, Van Tango
Mean old scene, Van Tango
Van Tango had a mean old scene, Van Tango
Mean old scene, Van Tango
He wore his quaff Venetian style
Venetian style, Van Tango
His fags were cheap, but with a filter
Really cheap, Van Tango

He don’t suck up to no-one tonight
Don’t suck up, Van Tango
He don’t suck up to no-one at all
Don’t suck up, Van Tango
Van Tango, Van Tango
Van Tango, Van Tan-Tan–Tan-Tan-Tango

Caretaker of the night
He’s the king of the night
Caretaker of the night
He’s the king of the night
Caretaker of the night
He’s the king of the night
Caretaker of the night
Watch out he’s the king of the night

Van Tango, Van Tango, Van Tan-Tan–Tan-Tan-Tango
Van Tango, Van Tango, Van Tan-Tan–Tan-Tan-Tango
Van Tango, Van Tango, Van Tan-Tan–Tan-Tan-Tango
Van Tango, Van Tango, Van Tan-Tan–Tan-Tan-Tango

Caretaker of the night
He’s the king of the night
Caretaker of the night
He’s the king of the night
Caretaker of the night
He’s the king of the night
Caretaker of the night
Watch out he’s the king of the night

Fred Buscaglione – Guarda Che Luna Lyrics

Guarda che luna, guarda che mare,
da questa notte senza te dovr? restare
folle d’amore vorrei morire
mentre la luna di lass? mi sta a guardare.

Resta soltanto tutto il rimpianto
perch? ho peccato nel desiderarti tanto
ora son solo a ricordare e vorrei poterti dire

guarda che luna, guarda che mare!

Ma guarda che luna, guarda che mare,
in questa notte senza te vorrei morire
perch? son solo a ricordare e vorrei poterti dire
guarda che luna, guarda che mare!
Guarda che luna, guarda che mare! Che luna!

Banquets – Lyndon B. Magic Johnson Lyrics

I used to run, I had dimes slipping through my hands
I left these kids behind
I had a town that could understand
And I put all my faith in loving arms
And brought myself back home
By day, in debt, by night, I slept
In a bed that would soon be broke

And when I went blind
Step one: Burning eyes by the sun

Back to brash and lonely, please don’t deserve me
For every ‘try’, I got a ‘fail’
I should have more bitter within me
But I just need some hurt to heal

I hope you burn your hands picking up the coals
Picking up the coals
I hope you burn your hands picking up the coals
Picking up the coals

Bob Marley: Legacy Series Gets Webby Award Nomination

Bob Marley legacy lives on and continues to rake in deserved accolades. In the latest accomplishment for the Marleys, the 12-part, mini-documentary web series, Bob Marley: Legacy, has been nominated for one of the most prestigious online awards, a Webby Award.

The series takes a deeper look at the late reggae legend’s life and formed part of the yearlong celebration of his life and impact in 2020. The celebration was called Marley 75 as it would have been his 75th birthday last year.

The Webby Awards nominations, which were released on April 20, showed that Bob Marley: Legacy was nominated in the Best Video Series in the music category. The series was a joint effort and was presented by Universal Music Enterprises, Tuff Gong, and Island. The Webby Awards recognizes the best websites, podcasts, apps, and other internet services for a given year. It is widely considered the Internet’s highest honor and is often referred to as “Oscars of the Internet.”

The awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. That group is made up of over two thousand industry experts and technology innovators. Some of the categories that are awarded include websites, advertising, and media, online film, and video. One of the trademarks of the show is the short acceptance speech by winners, which is only five words long.

Bob Marley: Legacy resonated with fans in a year that was plagued by the racist violence in the US, which saw the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement. It was especially pertinent as many around the world cried for equal rights and justice for black lives. The first episode of the series called “75 Years A Legend,” has already brought in over one million views.

The Marleys gave thanks for the recognition through Bob Marley’s Instagram page that posted: “Give thanks to the team @umgcatalog for helping us shine a light on these new perspectives of Bob’s life and legacy.”

“This unique YouTube series provides fans with a refreshing and cinematic journey through the life, legacy, and relevance Bob Marley still holds in this present day. Bob Marley remains one of the most followed posthumous artistes on social media in this digital era, and Marley75 serves to bring his music and message to the digital foreground, reaching new audiences and perspectives with innovative content and ground-breaking technology,” a release about the show stated.

The Marley family will celebrate another milestone this year as it will be the 40th year since he passed away at just 36-years-old. The Webby Awards winners will be revealed on Tuesday, May 18. Fans can vote on the People’s Voice Award online until Thursday, May 6.

Kodak Black Says Sexual Assault Caused His Album Delay

Kodak Black says recent controversies surrounding his sexual assault case is to be blamed for his album delay.

The Pompano Beach rapper has announced that he is delaying the release of his forthcoming album due to the current controversies surrounding him. In a video posted on social media, the rapper said he was advised by his team to delay the release of the much-anticipated project, which would be his first since being released via a Donald Trump pardon.

“I wanted to give y’all an album but these platforms say it’s too much talk about this bulls**t and we should kinda wait, so can y’all please shut up,” Kodak tweeted.

On Wednesday, April 28, Kodak Black pleaded guilty to charges of assault and battery, rising from an incident in 2016 involving a high school student in Florence County, South Carolina. Prosecutors say Kodak pushed the girl into a wall and onto a bed before assaulting her in a hotel room.

Kodak Black had previously denied the allegations, but in court on Wednesday, he explained that he was trying to have a “romantic encounter” with the alleged victim. It is alleged that his attempts were not welcomed, and the student revealed that Kodak then bit her. The rapper agreed the claims were true.

He told the court, “I apologise. I’m hopeful we can all moved forward. I wish her the best in her life.”

The 23-year-old rapper, whose real name is Bill Kapri, received 18-months probation and a 10 year suspended prison sentence. He also agreed to attend counseling as a part of the negotiated plea. In addition, the court ordered that Kodak cannot drink alcohol, use drugs, or possess guns under the terms of his probation.

The rapper has had his fair share of run-ins with the law. He was previously sentenced to 46 months in prison over weapons charges before Trump pardoned him on his last day in office. Despite his troubles, the rapper has always come through with music for his fans. In 2018, he had a number one album in the U.S. Fans who were looking forward to the album are still appealing to him to release the project amid the controversy, or as they see it, the publicity.

PnB Rock – Need Somebody Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Damn, I fucked up pretty bad
Yeah, I know I was tripping, I know what you thinking, yeah right, what’s the difference?
I was creeping on the low and fucking all these bitches
Whole time you knew ’cause that’s just woman’s intuition
Thinking with my head, not the one on my shoulders
By the time I realized we was already over
I was high all the time, barely I was sober
You was falling out of love and I ain’t even notice
Liar liar, heart’s on fire
It’s crazy how you always felt like the only one trying was you
Sorry for the liеs when all you wanted was the truth
Without you by my sidе, shit, I don’t know what to do
Begging on my knees, it’s so hard for me to leave, we got all these memories
The good, the bad, the worst, the perfect
I’m fighting for our love because it’s worth it

[Pre-Chorus]
Damn, why you wanna leave? You know that nigga ain’t me
Thugging but I’m stressing lowkey, I’m waiting on you to call me, yeah

[Chorus]
Girl, you know you need somebody
‘Cause everybody need somebody
Girl, just let me be somebody for you

[Verse 2]
Me losing you is scary like drowning
Or with no parachute jumping off a mountain
I fucked up about a million times but who’s counting
I seen tears pouring out your eyes like fountains
This whole situation got a nigga stressing
But I’d never give up except if you get pregnant
By another nigga, shit, that would hurt me bad
‘Cause bitch, you already know I’m supposed to be the dad
Got a nigga all up in my feelings, yeah, I’m in my bag
Like if you did this shit I did to you, could I still take you back?

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t leave, you know that nigga ain’t me
Thugging but I’m stressing lowkey, I’m waiting on you to call me, yeah

[Chorus]
Girl, you know you need somebody
‘Cause everybody need somebody
Girl, just let me be somebody for you
Girl, you know you need somebody
‘Cause everybody need somebody
Girl, just let me be somebody for you

Tiny Meat Gang & Quinn XCII – Daddy Lyrics

[Intro]
We packin’ Diamond Pistols

[Chorus: Quinn XCII]
I changed my bio
It says “Father,” don’t say “Daddy”
All my friends will tip their caddies
Whenever we finish up eighteen holes
Game night is lit now
Always make noise when I sit down
That don’t mean I don’t spend dollars
Whenever I go to Home Depot

[Verse 1: Cody Ko]
Yeah, let’s get this show on the road
Refund check, gonna spend it on a boat (Ahoy)
Because I’d rather be fishin’
Tevas lookin’ colder than the beer I’m sippin’ (Ice)
I leave the decorating to my wifе (Yeah)
But I’ma rearrange hеr insides (Hahaha)
Ha, the dad dick is no joke
Shit hangin’ like a panorama photo (Ayy)
I built a deck around the house and then I painted it
Didn’t like the kitchen so I renovated it
After Johnny’s Little League, hit the local Applebee’s
Clean the plate and tell the waitress that I hated it (God, I hated it, haha)
And when we at Target, I back in and park it (Back in and park it)
I stay in the whip and I check the stock market (Check the stock market)

[Chorus: Quinn XCII]
I changed my bio
It says “Father,” don’t say “Daddy”
All my friends will tip their caddies
Whenever we finish up eighteen holes
Game night is lit now
Always make noise when I sit down
That don’t mean I don’t spend dollars
Whenever I go to Home Depot

[Verse 2: Noel Miller]
I got two jet skis in the garage
Sleepin’ with my wife and my dog named Ménage
Got a career, baby, not a lil’ job
I say, “Get on your knees,” I’m just talkin’ ’bout God
My wallet too fat, fuckin’ with my back
‘Bout ten credit cards, what you know about that?
Every time I swipe, get a lil’ kickback
That dresser too heavy, daddy gonna lift that
I love to play poker (Poker)
Lay pipe in some loafers (Loafers)
Whip you around like a chauffer (Chauffer)
I play with real guns, not no controller (Controller)

[Bridge: Quinn XCII]
I’m on the Internet and they call me Daddy
All this housework made me so chatty
Power tools, oh, that make me savvy
No, I haven’t tried to **** the nanny

[Chorus: Quinn XCII]
I changed my bio
It says “Father,” don’t say “Daddy”
All my friends will tip their caddies
Whenever we finish up eighteen holes
Game night is lit now
Always make noise when I sit down
That don’t mean I don’t spend dollars
Whenever I go to Home Depot

Thomas Rhett – More Time Fishin’ Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You’re thinkin’ ’bout calling in sick
Or just blowing off work
And drive right by that exit sign
Where I punched the clock from 9 to 5
I roll the window down and I flip it the bird

[Pre-Chorus]
Park my truck down at the dock
See if this cellphone can skim like a rock

[Chorus]
You can spend your whole life tryin’ to make a killin’
But what’s it all worth without a little livin’?
Don’t wanna look back at all the things I’m missing
And wake up wishin’ I spend more time fishin’, yeah
More time fishin’, yeah

[Verse 2]
I don’t care if I don’t catch a thing
As long as I catch a buzz and a tan, mmm
Just a couple chea fold up seats
I can sit up out on the bank and hold your hand
And a cold can

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m tired of wastin’ my time
On traffic jams and boss man’s and chasin’ a dime

[Chorus]
You can spend your whole life tryin’ to make a killin’
But what’s it all worth without a little livin’?
Don’t wanna look back at all the things I’m missing
And wake up wishin’ I spend more time fishin’, yeah
More time fishin’, yeah

[Bridge]
Whoa, whoa
Yeah, yeah

[Bridge]
A little more spin you ’round in the kitchen
A little more Otis Redding, red wine sippin’
A little less 5AM
A little more sleepin’ in
A little more take it slow backroad drive

[Chorus]
You can spend your whole life tryin’ to make a killin’
(Tryin’ to make a killin’)
But what’s it all worth without a little livin’? (Hey, yeah)
Don’t wanna look back at all the things I’m missing
(All the things I’m missing)
And wake up wishin’ I spend more time fishin’, yeah
More time fishin’, yeah

[Outro]
Oh, whoa
Oh, whoa
More time fishin’
Mmm, mmm

Manchester Orchestra – Let It Storm Lyrics

[Intro]
You like the echo in here?

[Verse 1]
Waiting in your line
You gotta go this time
Wouldn’t waste my time
You wouldn’t lie, you wouldn’t lie
Baby’s breath, another secret kept
Another lost regret
Another movement in the thread

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, don’t mind, I wouldn’t hurt you
Oh, don’t mind, I wouldn’t search you
Desert you, convert you

[Chorus]
I don’t wanna hold back my faith anymore
I don’t wanna fall into that man again
I just wanna keep both my feet on the floor
So let it touch me
And let it storm

[Verse 2]
Fairness in your time
You had a lot, let it slide
You wrote it down, let it hide
You felt it blossom in your mind
Fear is for thе faux so let it go, let it go
You lay it down, watch it grow
You let it livе, you take it home

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, don’t mind, I wouldn’t hurt you
Oh, don’t mind, I wouldn’t search you
Desert you, convert you

[Chorus]
I don’t wanna hold back my faith anymore
I don’t wanna fall into that man again
I just wanna keep both my feet on the floor
So let it touch me
And let it storm

[Bridge]
When the guilt’s got you strapped to your bed
Gnashing teeth while you bargain your debt
You just can’t get it out of your head
Call it holy

[Chorus]
I don’t wanna hold back my faith anymore
I don’t wanna fall into that man again
I just wanna keep both my feet on the floor
So let it touch me
And let it storm

[Outro]
You like the echo in here?

COIN – Different Moons Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Far away but I still love you
I care to see you holding on
But I don’t know if it’s right for us
To keep these two hearts
Glued together

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m giving it time
I’m giving it time to settle
I’m living the life
Not sure if it’s worse or better

[Chorus]
So I’ll try I’ll try
To break your heart
In the nick of time
I’ll forge I’ll fight
But I fall short every time
I do
With your eyes out the window
When your head hits the pillow
Who’s on your mind
Right at that time
Am I even in the game?
Is it anybody’s race?
When your head hits the pillow
But I’m stuck in the middle

[Verse 2]
Far away but I still love you
I care to see you holding on
But I don’t know if it’s right for us
To keep these two hearts
Glued together
I don’t wanna fall asleep
If you can’t wake up next to me
I don’t know if it’s right for us
To keep these two hearts
Glued together

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m giving it time
I’m giving it time to settle
I’m living the life
Not sure if it’s worse or better

[Bridge]
I-I wanna make it work
Wanna make it work
Wanna make it
Wanna make it work
Wanna make it work (repeated)

[Outro]
I’m giving it time
I’m giving it time to settle
I’m living the life
Not sure if it’s worse or better

Manchester Orchestra – Annie Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I thought this time I might just walk away from you
You were a thief, yeah, and I was the proof
But you don’t ever cry, so no telling the truth
The first time that I tried to run away from you
You gave me a list, said, “Now, baby, you choose”
But it wasn’t engraved, it felt more like a bruise

[Chorus 1]
Oh, I wasn’t ashamed then
Of my degree
The fear that I once paid for now was free
But I wasn’t afraid then
Of who I’d become
In a desperate vain attempt to talk to God
I saw, I saw

[Verse 2]
Now I’m the same, lost my decree, and it paid for you
I was a liar, I was stuck in the fog
Yeah, and you were turnеd around, I was pretty much lost
I’m the first of four that tried to cast away from you
Into thе dark, you were a spear
I was holding your head, you were watching me kneel

[Chorus 2]
I was barely born then
I was hardly evolved
I was pacing back and forth to calm the squall
So I ran out of reasons
Of places to fall
Would you take my heart and nail it to your wall?
I saw, I saw

[Bridge]
Once you reach the top it takes your air
Are you hollow?
Are you holl-lower than you think you’ve ever been?
Are you hollow?
Are you hollow?

[Chorus 3]
I don’t want to believe it
Stuck in my thought
I’ve been trying to replicate the mask of God
Now I’m starting to feel it
Now the guilt’s falling off
When I turned my eyes around, I learned to talk
I saw, I saw

Manchester Orchestra – Angel of Death Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Driving with the angel of death
I pass by your old department
Sniffing up the pills you left
Inside the limousine
Nobody could tell me how far
You said, “We’ll stop to read each tea leaf”
Nobody could tell me how long
Just pacing patiently

[Chorus]
I arrive
In the form of a radical being
You arrive
But the story can never be told

[Refrain]
(It’s harder now to hold you)

[Verse 2]
Sleeping with the angel of death
I still find you in my shadow
Learning how the mirror reflects
I lose myself in you
I was told it wouldn’t be long
“Life’s a basket full of cravings”
Bettеr than the evil you know
Repеat yourself in me

[Chorus]
You arrive
On the hood of your step father’s Lincoln
The surprise
You couldn’t remember the words
I’m on fire
And the guilt’s doing all of the thinking
I’m alive
But it isn’t the same as before

[Bridge]
Slowly we become a single mold
Watching as my skin becomes your skin and starts to hold
I was told that there’s a wonder in the place our bodies go
Driving ’round the sins of both my lives will keep you cold
I deserve it, I’ve been stalling, I’ve been selfish, I’ve been wrong
Finally I heard my name, the absolution called
Now I need it, now I crave the writing burned into the wall
Sitting in your hands to watch the ending of it all

[Chorus]
I arrive
In the eyes of my grandfather’s daughter
In the light
But I couldn’t remember your words
I survived
And the guilt’s falling off me in pieces
I’m alive
And it isn’t the same as before

[Verse 3]
I thought this time I might just walk away from you
If I’m the thief and you’re the proof, it’s pain to choose
It felt like a first, but it wasn’t new
It felt like a sin, it was more like a noose

[Refrain]
It’s harder now to hold ya
It’s harder now to hold ya

[Verse 4]
I’m ashamed, lost my decree, it paid to lose
The first of sixty thousand hours obsessed with you
It wasn’t a lie, but it wasn’t the truth
I tried blaming me, ended up blaming you

[Refrain]
It’s harder now to hold ya
It’s harder now to hold ya
It’s harder now to hold ya
It’s harder now to hold ya

Justine Skye & Rema – Twisted Fantasy Lyrics

[Verse 1: Justine Skye]
You hit me on the late night
I was coming through to get my head right
I can’t even lie I had a drink or two
Anything I can to get my mind off you
Twisted fantasies in my head
And I don’t wanna talk I wanna show you instead
You hit me right on time
Wonder where you at when you’re not on my mind (Hey)
What happened to the vibing, boy, you killed it
Another fuckboy off the list, as I predicted
How come shit could never be consistent?
Try to find another me, won’t get it
What happened to the vibing, boy, you killed it

[Chorus: Justine Skye]
If you wanna come down, my way

If you nuh trust me, won’t wait
If you can’t trust me, won’t stay

[Verse 2: Justine Skye]
Smoke just a little bit, vibe just a little bit
Drink just a little bit and I’ll get rid of it all (Hey)
Get rid of it all, baby
We smoke just a little bit, fight just a little bit
Drink just a little bit, can we get rid of it all
Get rid of it all, baby
And I ain’t tryna play innocent
When you look into my eyes like that
And you’re looking at the time I left
You’re something, you know what, baby
Tryna tell myself
It’s a likkle burnt out, I guess
But I’m constantly trying, oh no

[Chorus: Justine Skye & Rema]
If you wanna come down, my way
Let me remind you, replay
If you just trust me, you’ll stay

If you want something that you can’t say
If you nuh trust me, won’t wait
If you can’t trust me, won’t stay
(Pull up, pull up, pull up, pull up)

[Verse 3: Rema]

Now you jumping into conclusion, telling me I do not love you enough, woah, woah, woah, woah
