"Amelita" (2013)

Sunshine lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

You tell me that you don't like people
You can only believe in yourself
You pity all those who lack your higher breeding
So I can see the reason you don't have anybody left

Could it be the way you wear your fur on the inside,
Prefer not to go outside where the sky's way too blue?
Tonight you'll grace us with all your inner presence
While your back-handed compliments let the air out of the room

Hey, don't rain on my parade and kill a perfect day, wasting my time
Hey, you always find a way to bring me down when I feel fine
We call you sunshine

I'm just an angel that sits upon your shoulder
Says the world will pass you over while you're waiting for a crown
You're no stranger to the art of how to fake it
You play until you break it, you make it hard to be around

Hey, don't rain on my parade and kill a perfect day, wasting my time
Hey, you always find a way to bring me down when I feel fine
We call you sunshine
We call you sunshine

Hey...
Hey...

Someday you'll be up on your mountain
High above the clouds where you can never be found
But you start a fire just to beg for intervention
You like the drama and attention, God forbid we bring you down

Hey, don't rain on my parade and kill a perfect day, wasting my time
Hey, you always find a way to bring me down when I feel fine
Hey, don't rain on my parade and kill a perfect day, wasting my time
Hey, you always find a way to bring me down when I feel fine
We call you sunshine
We call you sunshine

Amelita lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

Amelita, come to see ya
And I finally now know the truth
Oh I found you, in your costume,
And the comb in your hair is the proof
Am I right, Amelita?
You just stand there with nothing to say
While they watch yo play the leader
So I’ve come here to take you away

Or they love you, and we lost you
When he promised to make you a star
Oh he fooled you, and it cost you
And the age on your face show the scars
Oh my good friend, I can see you
As a young girls with stars in her eyes
What a beauty, such a dancer,
Now you lay out your heart as a prize
Have you no pride?
You’ve got the rest of your life

I take your hand, let’s go tonight
Just leave it all, I promise you’ll
Be fine across the bridge, the lights of town
You smile, and never turn around
I remember you and Amelita
Have you no pride?
You’ve got the rest of your life

Where have you gone my friend
Then light in your eyes is gone, gone, gone
I take your hand, let’s go tonight
Just leave it all, I promise you’ll
Be fine across the bridge, the lights of town
You smile, and turn around and run
Amelita, have you no pride?
You’ve got the rest of your life

I take your hand, let’s go tonight
Just leave it all, I promise you’ll
Be fine across the bridge, the lights of town
You smile, and then you turn around and then run
Amelita, have you no á¹—ride?
You’ve got the rest of your life
Have you no pride?
Hey yeah

Aimless Upward lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

Part of me is a climbing vine
A ball of nerves like a ball of twine
Laws of love and gravity
We are seeds with promises to keep

Part of me is a setting sun
In my skin and in my lungs
Almost wholly mystery
We are seeds with promises to keep

My eyes are wide
Aimless upward I will rise and
I'll be fine to take my time

It's a gift to see the stormy skies
But too much rain and the waters rise
I've got steady hands when my roots are deep
We are seeds with promises to keep

My eyes are wide
Aimless upward I will rise and
I'll be fine to take my time
Take my time

We fool ourselves with our happy tunes
Convinced the beauty is in the bloom
Can I let go of my vanity
We are seeds with promises to keep

My eyes are wide
Aimless upward I will rise and
I'll be fine to take my time

And eyes are wide
Aimless upward and I will rise and
I'll be fine and take my time
Yes, I'll take my time

A Guy Like You lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

I'm sittin' here alone on Sunday
Just thinkin' if I had my own way
I'd be sippin' on a gin and tonic
In an oxford with your scent on it

Just happy hangin' out
Nobody tryin' to figure me out
Nobody tryin' to figure me out

Well I've had my days of hell and heartbreak
But good times so "what the hell" I say

I'm just happy hangin' out
Nobody tryin' to figure me out

I look up and smile at the clouds and I
Make a kiss and throw a wish out
I run home just to write it all down
Anything to make it work out
With a guy like you

I fooled a friend and I got your number
I'm old fashioned so I wait and wonder
We go on hypothetical dream dates
I hear you laugh and I see your sweet face

And all's perfect in the world today
Yeah, it's just a crazy little game I play

I look up and smile at the clouds and I
Make a kiss and throw a wish out
I run home just to write it all down
Anything to make it work out
With a guy like you

Yeah, I look up and smile at the clouds and I
Make a kiss and throw a wish out
I run home just to write it all down
Anything to make it work out
With a guy like you

I'm sittin' here alone on Sunday
Just hopon' you will be here some day

Gets You Down lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

When life gets you down
What you gonna do?
[x2]

Are you gonna stick your head in the sand?
Are you gonna turn and run just like that?
Are you gonna take a fall or a stand today?

When hearts break you down
What you gonna do?
[x2]

Are you gonna pitch a fight and cry?
Are you gonna beg the reasons why?
Are you gonna say and do what's wrong or right?

Well you could always love me
Yeah you can always love me
Yeah you could always love me

And if it don't feel right
At least you tried

When I let you down
What you gonna do?
[x2]

Are you gonna slip away in the night?
Are you gonna hold the babies tight?
Are you gonna give me more of your maybes and mights?

Well you can always love me
You could always love me x2

And if it don't feel right
At least you tried

You could always love me
And if it don't feel right
At least you tried
But did you try?

The Road You Take lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

I've been thinkin' 'bout
What it takes to fall in love these days
I've been going 'bout it the wrong way
I've come to realize
I can't be afraid to give my heart away
Never knowing if you'll stay

I thread the needle's eye,
And take a chance to know just how it feels
When you take a leap of faith
Right in front of me is the proof I need to know
that I believe we only get the love we make

Ahhh, I, I am not alone
And I, I can journey on
I won't leave it all to fate
It's the road I take

Lines and gravity it's the price
We pay to be here in the end
And we all live with our mistakes in times of clarity,
I see the bones we break aren't always gonna mend
But no apology's too late

Ahhh, I, I am not alone
And I, I can journey on
I won't leave it all to fate
It's the choice you make
It's the road we take
It's the choice I make on the road I take

I've come to realize
that the roads we take have water on the bridge
I've come to realize it can be a long wait
When it's all insanity and the walls you built
have all come caving in
And you don't know what you can take

Ahhhh, you are not alone and
Ahhhhh, you can journey on
Don't you leave it all to fate
It's the road you take
And the road goes both ways
It's the choice we make
It's the road you take
It's the road you take

Skyline lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

What am I doin' here
In such a lonely place?
Birds fly below
I'm high up in my cage

Wide awake again
Or am I dreamin'?
Trains passing by
World's spinning 'round my head

Then I heard a sweet voice cry
Telling me, yeah it's gonna be alright

I just look at the skyline
A million lights are lookin' back at me
And when they shine
I see a place I know I'll find some peace
I just look at the skyline

I used to rush around
To keep busy in the day
Then we'd sit up and drink
We might find something new to say
No, I can't live this way...

But then I heard that sweet voice cry
Telling me, yeah it's gonna be alright

I just look at the skyline
A million lights are lookin' back at me
And when they shine
I see a place I know I'll find some peace
I just look at the skyline

I look at the skyline
A million lights are lookin' back at me
And when they shine
I see a place I know I'll find some peace
I just look at the skyline

What am I doin' here
In such a lonely place?

The Coast lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

I'm gonna head down to the coast
Where nothin' ever seems to matter
You know I love it there the most
When every piece of my world gets scattered

Blue skies, green water
White birds in the air
Brown skin, blue collar
And the wind blowin' in my hair

And I wrote you this little note
And I never even sent the letter
But I still want you to know
I found a place I feel a whole lot better with...

Blue skies, green water
White birds in the air
Brown skin, blue collar
And the wind blowin' in my hair

Blue skies, green water
White birds in the air
Brown skin, blue collar
And the wind blowin' in my hair

I'm gonna leave my old winter coat
And I won't even need a sweater
I'm gonna sit out on a boat
'Cause it's time for some sunny weather and...

Blue skies, green water
White birds in the air
Brown skin, blue collar
And the wind blowin' in my hair
In my hair...

Blue sky, green water
White birds in the air
Brown skin, blue collar
And the wind blowin' in my hair

And the wind blowin' in my hair

Delight (Something New Under The Sun) lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

Baby can't you see
You don't have to try so hard with me
And baby can't you see
You don't have to talk so loud to me

I'll make some time when you're around
Just come on by
Just come on by
Take a chance on me

'Cause you know and
I know we're on our way

To something new under the sun
Something new under the sun
Something new under the sun
Something new under the sun

Baby can't you see
You don't have to use that line on me
And baby can't you see
You won't ever waste your time on me

'Cause I'll ease your mind when you're down
Just come on by
Just come on by
Take a chance on me

'Cause you know and
I know we're on our way

To something new under the sun
Something new under the sun
Something new under the sun
Something new under the sun

To something new under the sun
Something new under the sun
Something new under the sun
Something new under the sun

When I look to the sky
And the spark from your eyes lights up the night
My heart is on fire
As our two universes collide
Yeah, we have arrived
Animation, we come to life
Celebration of something so right
The creation in perfect time
Of something new under the sun

See You In The Spring lyrics - Court Yard Hounds (feat. Jakob Dylan)

Cold Chicago nights
Chains on tires
You're diggin' out snow
That wind, it just ain't right
I made up my mind
I'm headin' home

Well babe, can't you give it time?
I'll keep you warm at night
This town is all I know
And I could see you in my life
Stay inside (I can't go outside)
Just please don't go (so I gotta go)

'Cause baby, your Winter is nothing but prison
It drives me away
And maybe, come Summer, then we'll be together
Our time will come again
'Til then I'll see you in the Spring
Ah, so don't throw it all away
Throw it all away...

The end of Spring and June arrives
Won't you take a flight?
Come down to San Antone
That heat, feels like I'm on fire
No, it just ain't right
It makes me sweat at night
I'd rather be alone
(It's just not right...it's just not right to be so alone)

'Cause baby, your Summer is nothing but prison
It drives me away
And maybe, come Winter, we can't be together
But love will come again
'Til then I'll see you in the Spring
Ah, so don't throw it all away
Throw it all away

You know I live just to see your eyes
I'll meet you half way
I'll meet you half way by the runaway sign
(Makes me fall when for me you'll find a way,
I'll find you baby)

'Cause baby, your Winter is nothing but prison
It drives me away
And maybe, come Summer, we can't be together
Our time will come again
When I'll see you in the Spring
Ah, so don't throw it all away

Ah, don't throw it away

Ah, so don't throw it all away... throw it all away

Ain't No Son lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

I've got somethin' to say
I'm scared and so afraid
Can you take me as I am?
Come what may, our blood is all the same
I am still your little man

He said...
You ain't no son to me
You ain't no son to me
8 lb. baby boy I bounced on my knee
No, you ain't no son of mine
You ain't no son of mine
Ah, forget it girls
There ain't no use in tryin'
Don't expect to get my love for free
And don't blame me

You know this ain't no fun for me
This ain't no fun for me
All boys should be boys
That's how it should be
Yeah, you ain't comin' home
Nah, you ain't comin' home
'Til you walk a straight line
You'll be out on your own

Don't expect to save your soul for free
When you're the one who turned your back on me

Aren't you a sight to see?
Yeah, you're a sight to see
What you call freedom
Makes you look like a freak
Yeah, you must get around
'Cause it sure got around
Don't you know that I can't show my face in this town?

Don't think I'm gonna get you up off your knees
When you're the one who turned your back on me

Stranger, stranger on the wall
When the neighbors come to call
I just don't know what to say
So I put you away
This time I won't leave a trace
I'll fill up the empty space
When I put you, I put you away

He said...
You ain't no son to me
You ain't no son to me
8 lb. baby boy I bounced on my knee
No, you ain't no son of mine
You ain't no son of mine
Ah, forget it girls
There ain't no use in tryin'
Don't expect to get my love for free
When you're the one who turned your back on me
Don't blame me
Yeah don't blame me
Don't blame me

Shame on me, shame on me, shame on me

Fairytale lyrics -

Every girl wants the fairytale
I guess I do too
We're restless, we're young
With so much to prove

You ask me to wait
But wait I won't do
'Cause the time I've been wasting
I could be spending with you

Take me... we'll run away
Out of this town 'til it fades
And they'll say we're wrong
But with you I'm alright either way

Money can burn
And money can talk
But it's love that makes the girl
Get up and walk

Ah, all I want's my turn
Yeah, I could be happy just livin' to learn

So take me... we'll run away
Out of this town 'til it fades
And they'll say we're wrong
But with you I'm alright either way

Take me... we'll run away
Out of this town 'til it fades
And they'll say we're wrong
But with you I'm alright either way...

We'll run away
I can't take this town one more day
And they'll say we're wrong
But with you I'm alright either way

Every girl wants the fairytale
I guess I do too

I Miss You lyrics - Court Yard Hounds

I, I would follow you
Around the world and back again
Yes, I'd give anything
Just to see your face another day

Time is a precious thing
When tomorrow you fly away
Yeah, I'll see you on the phone
But it's not you, just shades of gray

And I miss you
I can't wait to kiss you
Yes, I miss you
I can't wait to kiss you when you come around

I, I can make a choice
To fade away or make a stand
And you gave me my voice
But being gone wasn't in my plan

And I miss you
I can't wait to kiss you
Yes, I miss you
I can't wait to kiss you when you come around

Boy, you've been everywhere
You go around the world and back again
With you I can be myself
But tonight I'm going to be alone

And then I miss you
I can't wait to kiss you
Yes I miss you
I can't wait to kiss you
And I miss you
I can't wait to kiss you
Yes I miss you
I can't wait to kiss you
When you come around

Come around...
