Kelly Z and "the Lot"

ALL I EVER WANT IS  THE BLUES

It’s got me, got me coming round

It’s got me, got me coming round

I can’t hear another sound

Cause it’s got me, got me coming round

All I really want is the blues 

 

It’s got me tied up in it’s spell

It’s got me tied up in it’s spell

Nothing really else to tell

Cause it’s got me tied up in it’s spell

All I ever want is the blues 

 

Muddy Waters sang it right

BB King he played it tight 

Bessie Smith sang it sweet 

And I can’t get off my feet.

 

Got me, got me up all night

It’s got me, got me up all night

It’s the only thing that’s right

Cause it’s got me, got me up all night

All I ever want is the blues 

 

Robert Johnson’s mean guitar

Stevie Ray he took it far

Etta James sang her song

And I can last all night long

 

It’s got me, got me jumping up

It’s got me, got me jumping up

It has got that certain touch 

Cause it’s got me got me jumping up

All I really want is the blues 

 

Howlin’ Wolf he had a sound 

Buddy Guy he laid it down

Koko’s voice was ten feet tall

And Bonnie Raitt learned it all

 

Got me, got me going strong

It’s got me, got me going strong

I can last all night long

Cause it’s got me, got me going strong

All I ever want is the blues

All I ever want is the blues

All I ever want is the blues

 

ALL HOPE AIN’T LOST

Times are tough I hear too many say

Greed and money getting the way 

Ain’t nothing good about it

Time for a brand new day 

 

Politicians making deals to keep their jobs

Big bad boss holding on to what he’s got 

Ain’t nothing good about it

When it’s paid for and bought 

 

 

All hope ain’t lost   All hope ain’t lost

All hope ain’t lost   All hope aint’ lost

All hope ain’t lost   All hope ain’t lost

Until, until you give up 

 

Don’t give up, give up, give up

 

All hope ain’t lost   All hope ain’t lost

All hope ain’t lost   All hope ain’t lost

All hope ain’t lost   All hope ain’t lost

Until you give up

 

Don’t give up, give up, give up

 

Let the rivers grow with opportunity for all

Let the rivers flow to help the weak help the small 

Ain’t nothing good about it 

When you build a great big wall 

 

All hope ain’t lost   All hope ain’t lost

All hope ain’t lost   All hope ain’t lost

All hope ain’t lost   All hope ain’t lost

Until you give up

 

Don’t give up, give up, give up

Don’t give up, give up, give up

Don’t give up, give up, give up

 

 

ALYSSA

It’s there in your heart not trapped in your mind

And easier to feel than to search out and find

And Alyssa she knew the way to get you through 

She was never behind but one step ahead of the blues

 

Some just don’t know what’s right there to see

Looking for easy to set them free 

And Alyssa she knew these things don’t get you through

She was never behind but one step ahead of the blues

She was never behind but one step ahead of the blues

 

Don’t hold on to worry when the answer is there

Don’t try to fix every why, when and where

Take a deep breath and throw away your fears

Cause it’ll all be gone before you know that you’re here

 

She was never behind but one step ahead of the blues

 

Don’t hold on to a worry when the answer is there

Don’t try to fix every why, when and where

Take a deep breath and throw away your fears

Cause it’ll all be gone before you know that you’re here.

 

Stop chasing the questions when its all right there

No one promised this life would be fair

And Alyssa she knew the way to get us through

She was never behind she was one step ahead of the blues

She was never behind she was one step ahead of the blues

She was never behind she was one step ahead of the blues

 

WOE IS ME 

I hear you crying   

Crying all night long

 

Won’t you listen to me  

I got many things to say

About the way you look at things  

That get in your way

Cause you’re so sad   

And you’re so mad  

You don’t know what you have

You focus on your bad luck  

And all the things that you lack

 

You tell me your in ruin 

And have many bills to pay

A job you that you can not stand 

You have to do each day

Oh you’re so sad   

And you’re so mad  

You don’t know what you have

You focus on your bad luck  

And all the things that you lack

 

Woe is me  Woe is me

I don’t need no crying baby  

I got you crying all day long

 

You know I care about you 

But you’re dragging me down

I’m running out of reasons  

To keep you around

Cause you’re so sad  

And you’re so mad 

You don’t know what you have

You focus on your bad luck 

And all the things that you lack

 

Woe is me  Woe is me

I don’t need no crying baby  

I got you crying all night long

 

Woe is me  Woe is me

I don’t need no crying baby   

I got you crying all day long

 

Won’t you listen to me   

Just might brighten up your day

Try to be grateful  

When good things come your way 

Cause you’re so sad  

And you’re so mad 

You don’t know what you have

You focus on your bad luck 

And all the things that you lack

 

Woe is me   Woe is me

I don’t need no crying baby  

I got you crying all day long

 

Woe is me   Woe is me

I don’t need no crying baby

I got you crying all day long

I don’t need no crying baby  

I got you crying all night LONG 

 

 

SAFE AND WARM  

Many times in my life  

I couldn't find what was right

Searching for someone like you  

To hold me and love me

Keep me safe and warm 

Oh I’m finally Home 

 

Took me time to see you there 

With your loving care

I was blind but now I see  

You hold me and love me  

Keeping me safe and warm  

Oh I’m finally home

 

When I smile I see you there   

When I cry I see you there

Oh you're the one, you’re the one

You’re the one who always cared about me 

And I finally see

 

That you always had my back 

You kept me on the right track

I'm so grateful that you care for me 

That you hold me and love me  

You keep me safe and warm 

Oh I'm finally home

 

When I smile I see you there   

When I cry I see you there

Oh you're the one, you’re the one

Who always cared about me 

And I finally see

 

Made no difference where I'd been 

You still love me again and again

I’ll never feel alone  

Cause you hold me and love me 

Keep me safe and warm 

Oh I'm finally home

 

You hold me, You love me

You keep me safe and warm

Oh I'm finally home

 

Rise Up

 

 

BROKE MYSELF

You can break a leg

Skiing down a hill

And break the bank 

With an overdue bill

You can break a tie 

Letting somebody win

And break a priest

With too many sins

 

But nothing compares 

To what a heart can do

I broke myself loving you

 

You can break the rules

Get ahead of the line

And break the day 

With a sunset sky

You can break a promise 

With just one word

And break a friendship

Over something you heard

 

But nothing compares 

To what a heart can do

I broke myself loving you

It broke my spirit yeah

 

I may be in trouble

I’m losing my friends

I’ve got to put the puzzle

Together again

Put the pieces back together again

 

But nothing compares 

To what a heart can do

I broke myself loving you

It broke my spirit yeah

 

I may be in trouble

I’m losing my friends

I’ve got to put the puzzle

Together again

Put the pieces back together again

 

You can break the law

Hurting somebody else

And break a sweat

Trying to save yourself

You can break the peace 

With a selfish hand

And break it down

Playing in a band

 

But nothing compares 

To what a heart can do

I broke myself loving you

It broke my spirit yeah

Broke my spirit baby

I broke myself loving you

Loving you

It broke my spirit yeah

Loving you Loving you

I broke myself loving you 

 

 

LET IT BREATHE

You walk down the darkest roads 

I tried to follow you there

With all I believed in you 

Until your love wasn’t fair. 

 

But there’s a light in my heart for you  

Let it guide you back to me

While your gone I hope you find peace of mind  

And you learn to let it breathe

 

Angry days fill your empty world

Since you chose that lonely road

And with all that’s in front of you

You only feel the heavy load

 

But there’s a light in my heart for you

Let it guide you back to me

While your gone I hope you find peace of mind

And you learn to let it breathe

 

Your mind needs to settle down

Your soul needs to rest

You need to tear those walls down

And find a way 

To let it breathe

 

Something dark has a hold on you

Just my love can’t fix the pain

So when you find the rest of you

We can both face the rain

 

Cause there’s a light in my heart for you

Let it guide you back to me

While your gone I hope you find peace of mind

And you learn to let it breathe

 

Your mind needs to settle down

Your soul needs to rest

You need to tear those walls down

And find a way 

 

Your mind needs to settle down

Your soul needs to rest

You need to tear those walls down

And find a way

 

Your mind needs to settle down

Your soul needs to rest

You need to tear all those walls down

And find a way 

To let it breathe

 

DIRT

When the dirt starts to feel clean

And the hurt starts to feels tender

It’s time to go

 

When your breath starts to strangle

And your shame feels like a gift

It’s time to go 

It’s time to go

 

Walk through that door to the sun

Stand with the others as one

They’ll keep you straight when you bend

So the broken pieces can mend

 

When the pain makes you feel better

And your hope stings like a bee

It’s time to go 

 

When a hand feels like a thorn 

And your cage feels safe and warm

It’s time to go 

It’s time to go

It’s time to go 

It’s time to go

 

Walk through that door to the sun

Stand with the others as one

They’ll keep you straight when you bend

So the broken pieces can mend

 

When the screams feel like love

And the abuse fits like a glove

It’s time to go 

It’s time to go

It’s time to go 

It’s time to go

It’s time to go 

It’s time to go

 

Walk through that door to the sun

Stand with the others as one

They’ll keep you straight when you bend

So the broken pieces can mend

 

Walk through that door to the sun

Stand with the others as one

They’ll keep you straight when you bend

So the broken pieces will mend

 

When the dirt starts to feel clean

And the hurt starts to feel tender

It’s time to go

 

A LITTLE BIT OF THIS

A little bit of this, a little bit of that 

A touch of good can turn around any bad

And salty makes the sweet taste just right

 

A little bit of cream can sooth a sour taste

Thicken with flour so it won’t go to waste 

And hot can make the cool feel just right 

 

All together we can be

A perfect homemade recipe

 

A little bit of spice can fire up a meal

If we cook it together it’ll make us feel

That we’re doing everything just right

 

A little bit of hope, a little bit of love

Keeps us happy and thinking of 

How we make each other fit just right

 

All together we can be

A perfect homemade recipe

 

Da da dee dum, da da dee dum

Da da da da da, da da dee dum

Da da dee da da dee da

 

A little bit of you and a little bit of me 

Is what I hope I’ll always see

Cause we’ve learned to treat each other right

 

A little bit of pepper and a little bit of salt

Can help us break down any wall 

Together we can make the world just right

 

All together we can be

A perfect homemade recipe

 

Da da dee dum, da da dee dum

Da da da da da, da da dee dum

Da da dee dum, da da da da da

 

CAN’T TAKE MY SOUL

Every Morning that I wake up I got a brand new day

Every morning that I wake up I got a brand new day

You can’t take my soul away

 

You can take my money when they lay me down

You can take my money when they lay me down

But you can't put my soul six feet underground

 

You can take my guitar when it's time to go

Yeah you can take my guitar when it's my time to go

But you'll never ever take my soul

 

Cause I'm gonna fly, I'm gonna fly

Straight to the sky, straight to the sky

Cause you can't take my soul when I die

 

You can take my stuff when I'm dead and gone

You can take my stuff when I'm dead and gone

But you'll never ever take my song

 

Cause I'm gonna fly, I'm gonna fly

Straight to the sky, straight to the sky

Cause you can't take my soul when I die

 

You can take my body burn it to ash

You can take my body burn it all to ash

But my soul will forever last

 

Cause I'm gonna fly, I'm gonna fly

Straight to the sky, straight to the sky

Cause you can't take my soul when I die

 

Every morning that I wake up I got a brand new day

Every morning that I wake up I got a brand new day

And you can’t take my soul away

 

Cause I'm gonna fly, I'm gonna fly

Straight to the sky, straight to the sky

Cause you can't take my soul when I die

You can't take my soul when I die

You can't take my soul when I die
