Nichole Nordeman – Hush, Hush (Every Mile Mattered Album)

This is where your ship went down
Right there
Stern and bow
You took on waves
Took on water
You took the blame, even harder
You drug a net across the ocean floor
Beer bottles and a broken oar
You washed on shore beneath the moon
And I’m not sure you want me to
But I’ll put you back together
Hush, hush
You don’t have to have the answers
Hush, hush
I will gather all the branches
I will light a fire for you
Rest your head ‘til you’ve had rest enough
Hush, now hush
Hush, hush
It’s worse in the light of day
It hurts the things they say
You wrote big letters in the sand
You watch the sky and wave your hands
But I love you if they never come
I love you in the scorching sun
One cup of water at a time
‘Til you remember you are mine
And I will love you back together
One cup of water at a time
‘Til you remember you are mine
I am the calm, I am the sea
Your rescue and recovery
And I am the storm that swallowed you
I let you bleed, I thought you knew
And I am the bottom, and I am the floor
I am the deep you never knew before
I let you sink
And I let you go
But I caught you in the undertow
And I am the shore
And I am the flame
And mercy is My name
Hush, hush
Hush now

Nichole Nordeman – Lean (Every Mile Mattered Album)

[Verse 1]
Trying and tripping and torn
Reaching for more, but coming up less
Why are my memories of
You as the judge, me as the mess
[Pre-Chorus 1]
I want the medal
Don’t want to settle
I want the victory lap, You in the stands
Why is it hard to believe
You just want me
Just as I am
[Chorus]
I could stand, I could fall
You want all of me
I could run, I could crawl
You will always be
You’re not impressed, with all of my best
Not disappointed, when I don’t land on my feet
In everything, You are asking me
To lean
[Verse 2]
When did we learn to perform
To need the encore, to know who we are
When did we forget our place
Is not on a stage but safe in Your arms

[Pre-Chorus 2]
When will I let go
Be still and just know
When will I see, when will I just believe
[Chorus]
I could stand, I could fall
You want all of me
I could run, I could crawl
You will always be
You’re not impressed, with all of my best
Not disappointed, when I don’t land on my feet
In everything, You are asking me
To lean
[Bridge]
You ask me to trust
When You say I was enough
You made me lean
[Chorus]
I could stand, I could fall
You want all of me
I could run, I could crawl
You will always be
You’re not impressed, with all of my best
Not disappointed, when I don’t land on my feet
In everything, You are asking me
To lean

Nichole Nordeman – Dear Me (Every Mile Mattered Album)

[Chorus 2]
And hold all the mothers, whose babies bleed from bullet holes
And feel all the hunger, the bellies and the bones
Shout for the prisoner, cry for justice, loud and long
And march with the victims, as Jesus marches on
And sit at all the tables, ’cause Jesus eats with everyone
And dance to the music, if you can’t sing its native tongue
And cry for the wombs, the mothers and the empty arms
And hold high the warriors, fighting now for freedoms’ song
[Bridge]
And love, love, love, love
Like it’s your own blood
And love, love, love, love
As you have been loved
Love, love, love, love
Like it’s your own blood
Love, love, love, love
As you have been loved
Love, love, love, love, love
Like [you have been?]
Love, love, love, love, love
It’s all about love! [Verse 1]
Dear Me …
This is a letter to the girl I used to be
Dear Me …
There are some things that you should know
It’s not my intention to embarrass or to shame you
What’s inside the rear-view mirror is closer than it appears
We do the best that we know how, with what we have been given
And the difference between you and I is, I’ve been given time
In time, you’ll see
[Verse 2]
Dear Me …
This is a letter to the girl I used to be
Some things are not as simple as we said
Remember when we thought there were a handful of some magic words to pray
A guarantee and a down payment on a mansion
Remember all the rules we made about the Body and the Blood
The hoops we made them jump through
Though He offers it to everyone
I’m so sorry
[Chorus 1]
Do you remember now the things I said I thought that I deserved
My flag, and safety, a place to learn
The things I know I didn’t earn
And bless their hearts, I’m sure it’s hard
But handouts don’t help anyone
And all the talk about the system
I sure hope someone can fix them
I said those things

[Verse 3]
Dear Me …
This is a letter to the girl I used to be
You’ll see, you’re gonna take the long way
And there is nothing you could do or say to separate you
From the love of God who made you just exactly as He meant to
And you cannot imagine all the places you’ll see Jesus
But you’ll find Him everywhere you thought He wasn’t supposed to go
So, go!.. Love, love, love, love, love
His name is love
Love, love, love, love, love

[Verse 4]
Dear Me …
You did not learn this in a day or two or three
So ask a lot of questions
But Jesus loves us, this I know
And there are no exceptions Go!..

Nichole Nordeman – You’re Here (Every Mile Mattered Album)

Nothing below or above me
Could get in the way
This is what You say

[Pre-Chorus]
Anywhere You are is sanctuary
Everywhere You are is where I’m free
[Chorus]
You’re here, You’re here
The only invitation that You need
Is the very air I breathe
You’re here, You’re here
I will never be alone
You will be always be my home…
[Bridge]
You were at the altar, preacher’s hand upon my head
You were in the water, when I came up clean instead
You’re still in my story, when my tears fall on the dirt
You’re there in the morning, wrapping grace around what hurts
You were in the questions, in the silence on the phone
You were paying cab fare, making sure I made it home
I believed in too far, I believed in my worst fear
But You were never moving closer, You were only always here! [Outro]
You will always be my home
I don’t have to be alone
Don’t have to be alone
You will always be my home [Verse 1]
In my younger years
I found You beneath the steeple
In the faces of Your people
Could hear You in the hymns
In my younger years
Then later on
I met You on a road, once winding
Seeking but not always finding
With the building gone
You still loved me later on
[Pre-Chorus]
Anywhere You are is sanctuary
Everywhere You are is where I’m free
[Chorus]
You’re here, You’re here
The only invitation that You need
Is the very air I breathe
You’re here, You’re here
I will never be alone
You will be always be my home
‘Cause You’re here
[Verse 2]
In the same small room
Staring at the life I’ve chosen
Hoping that the door’s still open
To give my heart to You
In this same small room
What could separate
Me from all the ways You love me?

Nichole Nordeman – Every Mile Mattered (Every Mile Mattered Album)

[Pre-Chorus]
I see shoulda beens, coulda beens
Written all over your face
Wrong turns and bridges burned
Things you wanna change
[Chorus 1]
It’s history
You can’t rewrite it
You’re not meant to be trapped inside it
Every tear brought you here
Every sorrow gathered
Yeah, it’s history
And every mile mattered
Mattered, mattered, mattered
Mattered, mattered, mattered
[Verse 2]
Get the box off the top shelf, with the black and white
Snapshots of your old self, in a better light
Ghosts and regrets back again, I can see it in your eyes
Send them home, let ’em go
Don’t you think it’s time? You drew a circle around Georgia, can you tell me why? Yeah

[Chorus 1]
It’s history
You can’t rewrite it
You’re not meant to be trapped inside it
Every tear brought you here
Every sorrow gathered
It’s history
And every mile mattered
[Bridge]
And every road and every bend
Every bruise and bitter end
All you squandered, all you spent
It mattered, it mattered
Mercy always finds a way
To wrap your blisters up in grace
And every highway you’d erase
It mattered, it mattered
[Chorus 2]
But it’s history
It don’t define you
You’re free to leave
It all behind you
Every tear brought you here
Every sorrow gathered
It’s history
And every mile mattered! Every mile mattered! [Verse 1]
Spread the map on the table, with the coffee stain
Put your finger on the places, show me where you’ve been
Is that California, where your teardrops dried?

Royce Da 5’9″ – Barely Human (feat. Tech N9Ne)

[Intro: Krizz Kaliko]
Oheya
Oheya
Ey
Ey
I’m barely
Human
[Chorus: Krizz Kaliko]
Just stroke my ego
Call me your hero
I’m damned to be this good
I’m barely human
[Verse 1: Tech N9ne]
Cold heart
Sinister sicking ya so-so art
If ya seeking a beating, I can treat and give heapins
Make your ‘fro blow ‘part before yo’ flow starts
Wanna be chopping ’em, knocking ’em all in coffins
And I’m stopping ya slow go kart when I go Mozart
Intricate, never vintage in my sentences
I’m gonna make a bro go shart
Look at me, I’m gonna favor the yeti but with a machete
You better be ready, you in the medi of a killing
I’m deadly when I shred these
Somebody check my head please, I’m edgy
And I’m steady giving hella loving
And I thank you to my niggas who led me to the red beef
Barely human, rarely you in the midst of some scary ruins
Until ya try to swipe my independence, Harry Truman
The Nina, the Nickel, we coming very soon and
Building the wack rapper cemetery to bury you in

[Chorus: Krizz Kaliko]
Just stroke my ego
Call me your hero
I’m damned to be this good
I’m barely human
You stroked my ego
Now I’m your hero
I’m damned to be this good
I’m barely human
[Verse 2: Royce da 5’9"]
King Nickel, Lee Majors
Spending old money, the cake’s stale
I beam triple like three lasers on three pistols on a weight scale
It seem simple, I’m pro-meth, I’m pro-magazine
This literature unfold half
Your team lean with you and I’m a nomad
Roaming out in the street killing MC’s pencils, making ’em rethink
What they write and might end up in yo’ pad
I’m getting dome in my kingdom where
I promise it’ll be no crowning (I promise)
The flow harder than Medusa postpartum
The father of the child’s coast guarding post-crowning
I’m getting money my nigga, it’s funny that nobody thought of you
And if it truly is true to music and induce it to life then my future
Will sound like autotune
Bad grammar and y’all be fucking up no commas
For you to compare me to ’em
He would have to be out of his mind if he barely human

[Chorus: Krizz Kaliko]
Just stroke my ego
Call me your hero
I’m damned to be this good
I’m barely human
You stroked my ego
Now I’m your hero
I’m damned to be this good
I’m barely human

[Verse 1: Camila Cabello]
He didn’t walk up with that "how you doin’?"

And papa says he got malo in him
He got me feelin’ like

DJ Green Lantern – Ill (feat. Royce Da 5’9″ & Conway)

[Intro: Westside Gunn]
I’m so ill
(Welcome to Hell where you are welcome to sell)
I-ill
(All scars, we earn ’em, all cars, we learn ’em)
I’m so ill
(When them shells come, you better return ’em)
I-i-ill
[Verse 1: Royce Da 5’9"]
Uh, I came in here with enforcers and with the goons
I never fail, I aim for the stars, came up short and I hit the moon
I’m more G than Voorhees before he had the pumpkin face
Mac 11 thumpin’, chase bitches never dump them, make ’em get out
Control their minds, keep them down on that sunken place
Which is why your boy remains on top
I tell the baddest bitch around
"Hoe, you look like Tory Lanez jump shot"
I use to think raw sex was the sacred shit
‘Til I switch to faithful, ate some sushi from off the chest
Of a naked chick, now I just be dissing hoes
Yeah momma, your son’s grown
I literally turned down your wife so many times
Her pussy lips eyes grilling you while you’re licking it with your fronts on
Either get out my face or I’m defacin’ you with a comment
Rappers like a bunch of baby birds waitin’ for me to vomit
Nigga say that they the illest rhyming, now they got to see me
I’m what’chu call them Detroit problems, now they got DP
Now I got the AR, so now they gotta back up
Lying ’til they got a twelve inch nose, now they got three feet
I’m who your hoes thirst for, you’re the worst floor
Took the Book of Ryan, I keep my story low, I’m the first floor
[Chorus: Westside Gunn]
I-i-ill
(When them shells come, you better return ’em)
I-i-ill
[Verse 2: Conway]
Word on the streets is niggas mad, don’t ruffle a nigga’s feathers
Tell them sucka niggas I said, "Fuck them niggas," whatever
You niggas know y’all can’t fuck with me nigga, never
You can line them niggas up, put a bunch of niggas together
Yeah, extended clip in the pot
The kinda shit that I’m on is reminiscing the pot
Grippin’ the Glock, bandana on, look at the cops
Pickin’ this watch, got the hammer drawn, lift from the top
Nigga you not no gangsta, you just a rapper, I can tell
I can tell it’s fishscale, bust the plastic, I can smell
This for niggas behind the wall to keep the ratchet in they cell
Better stab you ’til you yell, while they passin’ out the mail, yeah
My automatic full of shells, they try to take me out before
But I had to just prevail
I know the goons, the little savages as well
I know the plug, make the call and get a package in the mail
It’s passionate that I’m rapping with these rap niggas for real
Street nigga, but I’m rappin’ like I graduated Yale
I ain’t attracted to the plaques and all the sales
‘Cause if I ain’t the illest rapper, then actually I failed
Look, you must got it confused
Come at me sideways, and get you yo’ spot on the news
You gotta be fooled, shawty get yous, goons body you smooth
Put you in a funeral home, body get views
[Outro: Westside Gunn]
I’m so ill
(Welcome to Hell where you are welcome to sell)
I-ill
(All scars, we earn ’em, all cars, we learn ’em)
I’m so ill
(When them shells come, you better return ’em)
I-i-ill

Alex Cameron – Stranger’s Kiss (feat. Angel Olsen)

[Verse 1: Alex Cameron]
Don’t even bother climbing out of the well
That ain’t no way to get out of the hell that you’re in
If you wanna see the back of it, girl
You better start digging down with your pail of tin
I got shat on by an eagle, baby
Now I’m king of the neighborhood
And it feels like I could
Just peel the gym pants off a single mother
But this run of good luck don’t got me feeling all that good
[Chorus: Alex Cameron]
And it hurts, and it hurts
But I don’t wanna talk about it
‘Cause in my dreams, I miss you
Then I wake up to reality’s bliss
Now all I ever wanted and all I ever needed is right here
In the stranger’s kiss
[Verse 2: Angel Olsen]
Don’t bother flying when we jump off the cliff
Make sure it’s head first if you don’t want to deal with what ifs
I know you’re wondering if you’ll feel it again
Just keep on digging it down with your pail of tin
No shame in sleeping with the seagulls, baby
This town’s a tourist trap, it’s no place to be in
They made a meme out of my legacy, darling
My hands are caught in the net and they’re pale and thin

[Chorus: Angel Olsen]
And it hurts, and it hurts
Well I don’t wanna talk about it
‘Cause in my dreams, I miss you
And I wake up to reality’s bliss
All I ever wanted and all I ever needed was right here
In the stranger’s kiss
[Verse 3: Alex Cameron & Angel Olsen]
Me and Roy, we got a pretty mean posse
With a Down syndrome Jew from the real estate crew
He keeps me busy with a shift now and then
But it don’t ever really stop me from thinking of you
I know you’re wondering why you wish you were dead
And there’s no solace in the fact that it’s all in your head
Try not to focus on the pain that you’re in
Just keep on digging it down with your pail of tin
[Chorus: Alex Cameron & Angel Olsen]
If it hurts, but it hurts
But I don’t wanna talk about it
‘Cause in my dreams, I miss you
And I wake up to reality’s bliss
All I ever wanted and all I ever needed is right here
In the stranger’s kiss

[Outro: Alex Cameron & Angel Olsen]
‘Cause in my dreams, I miss you
And I’ll just stick ’em right there in the bin
Thought I needed buckets of gold
When all I needed was a dirty pail of tin

The National – Carin At The Liquor Store

[Verse 1]
I was a worm, I was a creature
I get on the ground the second I’d see you
You cannot command your love
I wasn’t a catch, I wasn’t a keeper
I was walking around like I was the one who found dead John Cheever
Hand in glove
[Chorus]
So blame it on me
I really don’t care
It’s a foregone conclusion
[Verse 2]
I see you in stations and on invitations
You’d fall into rivers with friends on the weekends
Innocent skies above
Carin at the liquor store, I can’t wait to see you
I’m walking around like I was the one who found dead John Cheever
In the house of love
[Chorus]
So blame it on me
I really don’t care
It’s a foregone conclusion
It wasn’t so bad, I wasn’t that sick
Got taken by love, I wasn’t that quick
Foregone conclusion
It’s gonna be different after tonight
You’re gonna see me in a different light
It’s a foregone conclusion

[Chorus]
So blame it on me
I really don’t care
It’s a foregone conclusion
I’m already seeing stars in the air
It’s a foregone conclusion

Machine Gun Kelly – Go For Broke (feat. James Arthur) (Lyric Video)

You can get high or you can get low
You can stay young or you can grow old
Let it go, ooo ooo
‘Cause I’mma I’ma go for broke
You could go hard or you could go home
You could live life or you could just fold
Let it go, ooo ooo
‘Cause I’ma I’ma go for broke
Look, I started with a dollar and a dream, right
So I could show these people how to dream, right
I could show ’em how to aim for the stars
And take it to the arenas from the streetlights
Damn, oh this is what the top feels like? (whoa)
I still remember Ramen noodle meal nights
I still remember checkin’ my account
And having 26 dollars, when I signed my record deal night
And I remember being cold
And my apartment used a heater from the kitchen stove
Highs and lows, it’s how it goes
So I gotta roll somethin’ up
Just to cope with the pressures of growin’ up, man
What a week
We made it to the bar ’cause we need heal up
You gotta play for keeps
‘Cause aces tend to stay with dealers
You got to believe it
But I’ma sinner too so I ain’t preachin’
Just keep on dreamin’
‘Cause all the bad days come for good reasons, ay
You could get high or you could get low
You could stay young or you could grow old
Let it go, ooo ooo
‘Cause I’ma I’ma go for broke
You could go hard or you could go home
You could live life or you could just fold
Let it go, ooo ooo
‘Cause I’ma I’ma go for broke
Yeah, and if I had a dollar
For everytime they told me what I wouldn’t be
I would be a rich man with a crib on a big hill (ha forreal)
But I gotta work to get paid
Earn my own way
Work the third shift, burn the whole splits
Says burn up (Hold up, let me get it)
Look, failure is not an option, I gotta be at the top
Like I’m sorry, but I don’t really feel sorry for y’all
I’m sorry I got a new number that you can’t call
I’m sorry to everyone who still wants me to fall
Hold up, you know what, I ain’t sorry at all
So I, hope that it was worth it when you was searched and you found what glitters ain’t gold
And I, knew I wasn’t perfect but I know that I made it all on my own
So you could get high or you could get low
You could stay young or you could grow old
Let it go, ooo ooo
‘Cause I’ma I’ma go for broke
You could go hard or you could go home
You could live life or you could just fold
Let it go, ooo ooo
‘Cause I’ma I’ma go for broke
Paid my dues, so I see you later
Love is much more that paper
So let it go, I just hit the road, I just let it go
Yeah, paid my dues, so I see you later
Love is much more that paper
So let I it go, I just hit the road, I just let it go
You could get high or you could get low
You could stay young or you could grow old
Let it go, ooo ooo
‘Cause I’ma I’ma go for broke
You could go hard or you could go home
You could live life or you could just fold
Let it go, ooo ooo
‘Cause I’ma I’ma go for broke
