Jailbird

Verse 1
Looking back at my life, I know where I screwed up
Chasing a stupid fantasy that soon went corrupt
My lilac-tinted glasses obscured my clear view
Next thing Iím broke and with bills that are overdue.
-
Is this supposed to be my happy ending?
Never could keep a job, but Iíd say yes to spending
I always thought that I could buy happiness
Yet thatís not the case with my bank account in minus.

Chorus 1
Iím an unwanted jailbird stuck with this stupid curse
Just like a floating iceberg thereís more to me below the surface
All I wanted was to pursue my happiness, but now Iím stuck in a rut
Cuz Iím an unwanted jailbird and most would say that Iím f*****.

Verse 2
Between you and me, I can honestly say I have no regrets
Sure I screwed up now and then, but with all due respect
This is the most excitement Iíve ever had in my life
Iíve actually learned what it means to feel alive.

Chorus 2
Iím an unwanted jailbird stuck with this stupid curse
Just like a floating iceberg thereís more to me below the surface
All I wanted was to pursue happiness, and Iíve succeeded
Just because Iím a jailbird doesnít mean Iím stupid.

Pull up on you in that orange lambo I maid it in a minute. † †
† †
I swear your pockets on slim fast bitch you hold no weight. † †
My money so afluent so I keep it on my plate. † †
Talking like you cardi saying you making bloody moves. † †
Meanwhile, you in the slums with yo momma catching the blues. † †
I swear I'm the original ain't no new editions. † †
No more hitting me up so stay the fuck up out my mentions. † †
† †
I'm dead to the drama, † †
You mess we me its your karma. † †
All that regret is in your conscience, † †

Jailbreak

 

[verse i]
an ajar door
between me and the sky
an endless silence
keeps me tied in my mind †
all that followed me
trying to hold me down
I could just walk out of here
but I can't go now †
 

[chorus]
on my own, I forged this cage of mine
locked me inside for a long long time †
time has come to set me free of the ties †
break this silence between yours and mine
a storm is sewing the sea to the sky
painting †the shadows with colours of light
pain is cruel so is the night
am getting closer to the edge of the light
 

[verse ii]
the lilac rays on
the vermillion sky
the torrid wind blows
drawing vertical lines
on the door of my cage
I built for my shame
now shattered and collapsed
I hear you calling my name
 

[chorus]
on my own, I forged this cage of mine
locked me inside for a long long time †
time has come to set me free of the ties †
silence is broken so as the lies
a storm is sewing the sea to the sky
painting †the shadows with colours of light
pain is ending so is the night
am getting closer to the edge of the light
 

[outro]
am standing on the edge of the light

Jailbird(song)

 
verse1  
time#between# the cell door closed  
and the key was turned regime imposed
do not judge my crimes to hard
reach out and pardon this poor sod
chorus 1
(to love to hard my only crime
but my woman crossed a double line
in bed with that #lilac# underwear
my best friend going at it spare
the chair it waits with cap and ties
the green mile walk down a cat call isle
jailbirds last rights, whats your desire
and I will walk the green mile with a smile)
verse2
for passion brings that secret tryst  
clouds your mind that drugs cant fix
give the pigs the finger one digit
beginning my stretch with load-a- shit
verse3
a crime of love my wounds still bleed
in my defense just did a social deed
a twin should be sitting on this stool
a two faced lie made my life so cruel
  † † † † † † † † † † † Middle 8 bars
chorus 2
and I pray at night for forgiveness please
that in happiness I once believed
hey you hey you hey you out there
my woman in my favorite lilac bra
and modeled †the skimpy underwear
hey †you took my woman it aint fair
 
now I'm happy I suppose
caught them in wild sexual throws
cast aside caught a glimpse of her lilac hose
my blood boiled and the red mist rose  
my blood boiled and the red mist rose
 
Chorus 1 repeat
 
they new what was coming when they saw the gun
I signed there# ending# with a dum dum slug
my happiness as their life ebbed
reflecting now on my prison bed
 
when the blindfold time comes round  
and they say now is the time do you repent
I curse them and said Id do it all again
for my lilac woman waits for me
for my lilac woman was the devils seed
for my lilac woman was the devils seed
 
Chorus 1 repeat
 
†† † † † † † the end

Jailbird

Little jailbird why do you cry?
Your song is somewhere between happiness and sorrow,
Are you lost amidst the lavenders and the lilacs?
Are you afraid that your life is ending tomorrow?


Youíve never known why youíve been this way,
That little bit of sadness tends to hang around,
Itís like the blues, you choose to sing them,
Youíve found that youíve always like the sound.

Youíve never really looked at the root of it,
Itís one of those guilty pleasures you like to feel,
You get a tinge of it so you like to binge in it,
So you wallow in the misery and all its appeal.

And yet by the end of each day you find a way,
To get back to that sheer divine state of mind,
All the while the tears you shed and even bled,
Seem to have been forgotten and left behind.

Little jailbird why do you cry?
Your song is somewhere between happiness and sorrow,
Are you lost amidst the lavenders and the lilacs?
Are you afraid that your life is ending tomorrow?


Do you like that volley of the poetic melancholy?
Do you flirt with the dark to embolden your art?
Does it fire your senses and inspire you to be profound?
Or is it because you lack something in your heart?

Your song sweetly educes and uses such an inflection,
Like a subconscious affection one really canít hear,
But you feel the attraction without any objection,
And freely give yourself without any worry or fear.

Little jailbird, why do you cry with that soulful tune,
Do you sing the blues over the choices you made?
Will your wings ever spread and fly away from here?†††
Or are you really happy and you like this masquerade?

Little jailbird why do you cry?
Your song is somewhere between happiness and sorrow,
Are you lost amidst the lavenders and the lilacs?
Donít be afraid anymore because today is tomorrow?
