Cardi B & Offset’s Atlanta Mansion Flooded By Hurricane Ida

Cardi B shared unsettling images of property damages due to Hurricane Ida.

Despite celebrating the birth of their baby boy, Cardi B and Offset might be dealing with some insurance claims for property damages. News reports and viral videos depict terrifying sights of infrastructure damage, Subways submerged underwater, and even people being swept away by Hurricane Ida’s floodwaters over the last few days. There have also reportedly been nine tragic deaths as a result of the flooding.

This weather system has seen the destruction of many cities, including New York, New Jersey, and New Orleans, as well as Atlanta, according to Cardi B‘s home assessment.

Cardi B’s house, unfortunately, was not exempt from the hurricane’s course. She documented the disaster and subsequent destruction on her Instagram Stories. Her hardwood flooring showed some damage after her Atlanta home was flooded, and residual water can still be seen covering the floors. Her bathroom also showed significant flooding, with debris lying on floors. The rapper captioned the photos of the devastation to her property with phrases like “THIS STORM AINT NO H*E” and “Storm is no joke.”

In 2019, Offset and Cardi relocated to the three-story mansion in Buckhead, Atlanta, which is home to several celebrities such as Tyler Perry and Kenny Rodgers. The home was originally listed for $5.8 million, but the ultimate price has yet to be determined. Fortunately, the damage to the star’s property was limited, and she, as well as her family, are in good health.

Fans are happy that the celebrity is safe, but this flooding pales in comparison to the catastrophic destruction in New York. Viral clips showing the devastating flooding and power outages in New York and other major cities have been circulating on social media platforms, and an outpouring of prayers has been issued as a result. There has also been a state of emergency declared in New York City as of Thursday, September 2nd.

Hurricane Ida is reported to be one of the most destructive hurricanes to hit Louisiana, coming in second only to Hurricane Katrina in terms of damage. On August 23rd, the storm began as a tropical wave in the Caribbean Sea. However, it grew stronger as it moved away from the Caribbean, eventually becoming a hurricane. On August 29th, it made landfall at Port Fourchon, Louisiana, and it has been wreaking havoc ever since.

Sara Evans – Anywhere Lyrics

Hey, you and me baby
We’re flying on a wing a prayer
Can’t tell you where we’re going
I just know that we’re gonna get there
Got all that we need in a cart in a checkout line
Hey, I’ll bag while you scan
I bet we beat the traffic in time
Top down, now you’re singin’
It’s such a beautiful day
I don’t care what you’re thinking
Baby, put your map away

‘Cause we can go anywhere
Yeah, we can go anywhere
I don’t care
California, Mississippi, all the way to New York City
As long as you ride shotgun with me
Anywhere
Love will get us there

Tell your boss maybe you’ll come back
And maybe you won’t
Well, in life sometimes people take chances

Most times they don’t
Don’t wanna sit on the side of the road
While our dreams pass me by
I’m sick of livin’ my life in park
I wanna live in it drive

‘Cause we can go anywhere
Yeah, we can go anywhere
I don’t care
California, Mississippi, all the way from New York City
As long as you ride shotgun with me
Anywhere
Love will get us there

Anywhere
Yeah, we can go anywhere
I don’t care
California, Mississippi, all the way to New York City
As long as you’re riding shotgun with me
Anywhere
Yeah, we can go anywhere
Oh, we can go anywhere
Love will get us there

Comments Off on Interview with The Tubes’ Fee Waybill: Good Music Stands the Test of Time


















By DONNA BALANCIA

Fee Waybill the creatively outrageous frontman and singer-songwriter for the Tubes sat down for a Q and A with California Rocker publisher Donna Balancia. With a tour coming up, and new music released, Waybill said his beloved band is back in the saddle. His new solo album is Fee Waybill Rides Again.

CR: Fee Waybill, how are you and what is happening with you and the Tubes?

Fee Waybill: We’ve just begun to get back into rehearsal, we’ve been rehearsing because we haven’t done a gig for a year-and-a-half! So I’ve been going up to San Francisco. Everybody else in the Tubes lives up in the Bay Area. Our drummer has a studio, an art studio that we’ve kind of turned into our rehearsal room. And we’ve been up there rehearsing, trying to remember the songs that we used to play. So that’s pretty much what we’ve been doing. Getting ready to to get back on the road here.

CR: What are some of the dates?

FW: We’re doing the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano and then we’re doing a casino in Scottsdale Arizona, called The Talking Stick which we played at a number of times before. And then we’re going to Quarry Park Amphitheater in Rocklin, California, which is outside Sacramento and we’re doing a show there with the with The Smithereens opening for us on that show.

And then we’re back in New York, Buffalo, New York City, Cincinnati Virginia, all over. It’s crazy because everybody is working this fall, everybody’s in the same boat, where we haven’t worked since March of 2020, so everybody’s going out this fall.

We did a lot in 2019 before this whole thing came down, we did about 50 or 60 shows. We were we were everywhere and all over the place and had a whole lot of shows lined up. We’re “re-booking” them.
None of us have experienced this on such a global level.

CR: Do you live here in LA?

FW: I’ve been in L A for years. My wife, Elizabeth, and I bought like a fixer-upper, an old Spanish two-bedroom, or three-bedroom, small. And so we’ve been we’ve been remodeling ever since. We we turned our garage into an art studio and completely completely gutted it and started over. And my wife’s an artist and working on pottery and painting. And so she’s got a beautiful big room downstairs to to work on art. And and then the house, we kind of live on the side of a hill. The house keeps us busy.

And I play polo. I belong to an arena Polo Club out in the valley – the California Polo Club and I actually have four horses. Two of them are retired and two of them. I’m riding so I do that on the weekends. And then, you know, I’ve been working on a current project … a flower press for my wife. And I’m working on a totem pole.

Fee and Elizabeth – Courtesy

CR: So you really keep yourself in good shape. Is that part of an athletic routine to stay in shape?

FW: Oh yeah, I work out, and have been working out my whole life. I mean, I’m on stage where you know, would do bondage with no clothes on and uh, you know, I’ve gotta stay fit. I used to live in Venice and I went to Gold’s Gym all the time for years. We’re really athletic, my wife plays tennis like five or six times a week and we go up to Franklin Canyon and walk the dog.

CR: It sounds like you’ve managed to keep a really good sense of humor throughout the years. It must be tough for musicians who have been crippled by this Coronavirus to keep going.

FW: One good thing is I released my solo album in April, Fee Waybill Rides Again. Richard Marx is my best friend and we’ve worked together for 35 years and Richard helped me put together this solo record and he and I wrote all the songs together. We had been recording you know, pretty much through 2019. We were recording and putting together the record, and some of the songs had we had in the can for years. And Richard was busy and I was busy and he kept saying, “Let’s finish this off.” We started in 2014 and we finished at the end of 2019. Then I started working on the cover and the art and Elizabeth helped me, we put a pyramid on the cover.

Fee Waybill Rides Again

CR: What does the pyramid represent?

FW: Elizabeth and I met at a pyramid in 1991. We met on a solar eclipse in Guatamala in 1991. And you know, the, the guy she was with recognized me, she didn’t know who I was, she never heard of me, which was kind of refreshing for me. And she was with her boyfriend at the time and he came walking out of the jungle with her and said, “Hi Fee, hey, what are you doing here?” I saw Elizabeth and I immediately was smitten and we spent the day together and then we kind of went separate ways. You know, they went north, and we went back to Belize, where we were staying and I never saw her again. And thought, “well, it was a nice one-day thing. Then eight months later, I’m working out in the Santa Monica Athletic Club with a friend, and she comes walking in the door. And she wasn’t even a member. She was a guest of a person who was a member and she came walking in the door and walked up to me and said, ‘Hi, remember me, we met in Guatemala?’ Yeah, I kind of went. ‘Okay.’ And that’s, that’s 30 years ago, we’re still together. I love her more than anything … And she’s helping us now. She’s our merch seller and VIP meet and greet host.

CR: Tell us more about ‘Fee Waybill Rides Again

FW: So the album was ready to release and the Pandemic happened. We released anyway and it’s been great.

CR: Which of the tracks on the album summarizes or encapsulates your lease on life and what we’ve been through?

FW: There’s a couple of rants on the album, “Promised Land” is kind of a little rant about, you know, Madoff, the housing crash and the whole climate crisis.

And then, “Man of the World” is kind of total sarcasm about the fixation of people with their damn phone and social media and apps. And, and you know, “Don’t want to Pull the Trigger” is is about temptation.

Lifelong pals Richard Marx and Fee Waybill – Courtesy

CR: It’s cool how you have Richard explaining the licks to you in the beginning of the song.

FW: Yeah, that was Elizabeth’s idea. Richard texted me, that’s how we write normally, you know, he’ll send me a text and he’ll just do a la la la la la, I listen to it a thousand times and then something happens and Elizabeth said, “Oh my God. That’s so cool. Why don’t you put that as the intro to the song?” I told Richard, he went, “Oh, that’s a good idea.” And then and then we have a guy, this brilliant young engineer in Chicago. His name is Matt and he pulled it off.

The other songs on the album are kind of, you know, they’re kind of sad, kind of sad songs about like “Say Goodbye” I wrote while we were broken up. … The songs, they kind of were created over a period of about six years and during that time a couple of times we had broken up and we thought we were going to get divorced and then I went my way and she went her way. And then we kind of figured, “No, no, this is not good” and then we got back together.

The one song that I didn’t write is “Still You on the Inside.” It’s kind of an autobiography kind of song. I didn’t write that, Richard wrote that song with Chad Kroeger from Nickelback and they submitted it to Daughtry. Daughtry turned it down, so I told Richard I want to do it.

CR: I don’t know how the young kids make make any money off recording today. What kind of advice do you give to the younger people?

FW: Don’t quit your day job! I mean, the business is so completely different now. In between the top of the hill, the Lady Gagas, and the indies, there’s such a gap, pretty much record companies, you know, all they deal with is the superstars and the big ones. Everybody else does social media, they do it in-house, they do it themselves. And now with streaming I mean nobody’s making any money off streaming. And so the the money from sales has dried up. unless you’ve got 40 billion streams for Lady Gaga or for Katy Perry or some huge rapper or something, you better be able to play live. That’s what I would tell people today, don’t write songs and fix it on a computer because you can’t do that live. And, you know, unless you can play Live, you’re not going to make any money.

CR: What’s the secret to longevity?

FW: For as old as we are, we’re pretty resilient. Rodger and I and Rick and you know, we’ve been doing this now for 45 years and still doing a 2 to 1/2-hour shows. I’m still doing Quay Lewd with 18 inch platforms. We’re doing The Completion Backward Principle show, we’re doing the whole album in order. A lot of a lot of these dates that we have coming up are dates that were rescheduled from 2020 dates, where we hadn’t done Completion Backward Principle yet. I think that’s the best record we did. I think it wasn’t the biggest hit like Outside Inside, but you know, “Talk to you Later” and “Don’t Want to Wait Anymore.” And I think it’s less production somehow, you know, that record was the first record with Capitol and David Foster had just produced Boogie Wonderland with with Earth Wind & Fire and he had never done a Rock N Roll album. There was just something magical about it, he didn’t he wasn’t, you know, it wasn’t an R&B album, although we liked R&B and he kind of always kind of tended in that direction but it was a Rock N Roll album. And, and I mean, it just it all just clicked for us. I think that’s our best record. And although, you know, Outside Inside was our biggest album.

CR: Who is the Tubes fan and why are they devoted?

FW: I think the ’80s were such a special time and, you know, we grew up in the eighties and the people that went to college in the eighties and listened to the Tubes music in the eighties … you know .. I love the Journey guys, and I love the REO guys. But we, you know, we were — weird. We we did a big show. We had dancers, we had costumes, we had props. We had, you know, we had video. We did video. It was art. Our mantra was “Art For Art’s Sake” and, you know, we would, we would put it all together. It’s insane show with. I mean, we went out with five, girls, dancers and we had eight dancers, and, and more dancers. And then we had band members, you know, 35 people on the road and we lost a fortune and we didn’t care and the manager kept saying, “You can’t do this, we can’t afford it.” And we’d say “We don’t care. We’ll do it.” Well and we made our own costumes and we made our own stuff. We did our own artwork for the album. We did our own photography, we did everything ourselves.

And we were fortunate enough to run into Kenny Ortega who we met early on. And Kenny was a dancer, a guy from San Francisco, he was on a Jesus Christ, Superstar regional tour and he wanted to choreograph and we met him, he saw him, he came to see us and he said “I’d love to help you guys put something together, your crazy show,” and we went “Great, okay.” And I mean, Kenny Ortega completely changed our world, and he’s gone on to fame and fortune.

Also, everybody knows we have a good reputation and, you know, we can play, we’re going to present a show. It’s going to be a great show. And we’re constantly changing. One show we did Fellini and, you know, I was Marcello Mastriani and it was all like a whole Italian show. We did a cowboy show with like an Ennio Morricone and, and the Spaghetti Western show, you know, the theme was the Good Bad and the Ugly, was the opening of the show.

CR: Are there any things on your bucket list that you want to achieve over the next 50 years?

FW: Roger and I have been writing songs over the years I’d like to do another Tubes album, but it would be kind of a self-released kind of thing.

But Number 1 on my list is Broadway. I am desperate to act on Broadway. I don’t know if you know this or not but I’ve been in a few movies acting-wise. But the stage is where I’ve been, acting on stage at a Summer Stock theater in Augusta, Michigan. It’s an old milk barn, a quonset hut milk barn turned into a beautiful theater and it’s right outside of Kalamazoo in Southwest Michigan. And I’ve been working there on and off every other year or so, since about 1998.

In 1998, the son of the patriarch there, his name is Brendan Ragazzi. He went to, he went to San Jose State, in the ’80s and was a big Tubes fan. And so he somehow got ahold of me back in ’98 and said,” I want you to come to my theater and do ‘Rocky Horror.’” so I went to the barn theater in ’98 and did Frank N. Furter, Rocky Horror Show. And and then the next year, I went back and I did it again and again, and I did it. And and then I’ve done other plays there, Spamalot the Monty Python musical. I played King Arthur, I’m channeling Tim Curry. You know whatever I do and either Rocky Horror with Frankenfurter or King Arthur.

Yeah, so I want to be on Broadway. Richard says “Manifest it.” That’s what I’m doing by telling you. Yes, I want to play the King of England in Hamilton. We enjoy Broadway. Elizabeth and I we went to see a bunch of plays in New York City, and it’s so great. I mean, New York is so great. If I can do Broadway, I’ll die happy. I’m hoping that some producer will read this, that’s why I mention this in interviews. I just know it’s going to happen for me.

The Tubes are hitting the road, tour dates are here:

Aug 20 – San Juan Capistrano, CA

Paul Young – Hope In A Hopeless World Lyrics

The baby’s born in New York City
Wrapped in a blanket that’s tattered and worn
Mama’s doing the best she can
Findin’ hope in a hopeless world

Her eldest boy
Well he stayed in school
Listen to mama
Didn’t drink or use
But every job he wants
He gets refused
Is there hope in a hopeless world

Looking for hope in a hopeless world
Searchin’ for love in such hateful times
Tryin’ to stay strong
While the mind gets weak
I’m lookin’ for hope in a hopeless world

On a corner stands a young girl
The home she left was from the better part of town
Her daddy did things she’d rather not talk about
Is there hope in a hopeless world

You gotta quarter for the homeless
Spare some changes for a soldier who fought the war
Put some money in those hats and in those tins
Give them hope in a hopeless world

Gotto find hope in a hopeless world
Lookin’ for love in such hateful times

Lookin’ for hope in a hopeless world
I got to ease my mind
Ease my mind

You gotta listen to the voice inside you

That speaks of love
Don’t compromise , realise
The time is quickly passing by
There are mountains to climb
You can’t be standing still

The churches are full but the prayers are not heard
Saturday’s child don’t want to go to Sunday school
Whatever happened to the golden rule
Teach them hope in a hopeless world
Somebody out there’s got to listen
Somebody out there’s got to know what I’m talking about
Raise your hand if you’re with me

Give them hope in a hopeless world
Gotta find hope in a hopeless world
Gotta in love
Gotta find love in hateful times
Gotta find love
Gotta find love and free your mind
Gotta find love
Is there hope in a hopeless world
Is there hope in a hopeless world

Afrojack & David Guetta – Hero Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Little girl, only seventeen years old
Life just got in the way
Don’t know what to say
She’s heard it all before
Lying on her bedroom floor
Thinking my life has to be worth more
She dreams of going to New York City
Her heart’s already there
But her head’s fighting a war
Little girl, only seventeen years old
Looking for a star but it’s just too dark

[Pre-Chorus]
When streams get a little bit wider
And it’s hard to swim across the water
And the scars get a little bit deeper
And a flame turns into a fire
Tonight whеn you need a way home
Someone to lеan on, some kind of hero
It’s there when you look in the mirror
Staring back at you

[Chorus]
There’s a hero in you
You
You
There’s a hero in you
You
You
There’s a hero in you

[Verse 2]
Old man trying to make it on his own
Looking at the space where his wife once was
Wants to find just something to believe in
He hears a knock at the door this evening
She says I’m going to New York City to follow my dreams
Would you come with me?
Little girl, only seventeen years old
Looking at the stars in her granddad’s eyes

[Pre-Chorus]
And the streams get a little bit wider
But together they cross the river
And the scars get a little bit lighter
And the sky looks a little brighter
Tonight when you need a way home
Someone to lean on, some kind of hero
It’s there when you look in the mirror
Staring back at you

[Chorus]
There’s a hero in you
You
You
There’s a hero in you
You
You
There’s a hero in you

Joe Budden Angered By Plane Supporting R. Kelly

R. Kelly has become one of the most despised artists ever since the revelation that he will have to face multiple sexual assault charges. While most of the popular opinion has been turned against him, it seems he has at least one die-hard supporter in New Jersey. The fan even went through the trouble of paying for a banner on a plane to make his or her feelings known.

The former Slaughterhouse rapper caught the fan’s message and decided to share it with his followers as well as his disgust with the person responsible. Joe Budden, who seemed confused by the entire incident, recorded the moment on his phone before posting it on various social media accounts.

In the short clip, he can be heard saying: “Look at this, only in New Jersey,” before adding: “Are you fucking kidding me, buddy? This is what you waste your good, hard-earned money on to see? You gotta be shitting me.”

— 2Cool2Blog (@2Cool2BIog) April 19, 2021

The message that the fan paid for reads, “R. Kelly was set up for monetary gain!” Very few people share this person’s sentiments as Kelly’s music has been more or less canceled and is rarely played on major radio stations or networks anymore. His troubles began soon after the multi-part docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly.

Following that, he was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Illinois in February 2019. The “Your Body’s Calling” singer was slapped with 10 federal sexual abuse and obstruction of justice charges later that year. That wasn’t the end of it either as he later faced another 18 federal charges between Illinois and New York courts all in 2019. He is expected to be moved from Cook County jail to New York City ahead of his sex trafficking trial this summer, according to various media reports.

Earlier today (April 19), the New York Post revealed that an alleged R. Kelly associate, Michael Williams, copped a plea deal. He apparently admitted that he lit one of the accuser’s father’s rental cars on fire as he tried to silence and intimidate the family of Azriel Clary. She is one of the alleged victims, according to the docuseries, who was living under his supervision.

Barleyjuice – State Of Desiree Lyrics

On a Christmas night, on a Dublin flight,
we did toast with stars in our eyes.
And the lights of New York City shone,
like a million diamonds from the sky.

We had come to work in the promised land,
where we dreamed we’d be happy all the day.
Now it’s been two years and I am left here,
in the state of Desiree

In the bustling throng of the customs queue
we were tired and yearned just to lay.
And we separated without thought
at the hand of the TSA.

And I answered questions about me youth,

and they searched me and let me walk away,
and when I turned around she could not be found,
my darling Desiree.

Let the rain fall down upon my brow,
for my love has gone awry.
Did she leave me here for a Yankee boy,
on the dos-legged blue S flight(?)
Did she lose recall, has she been detained,
Was she linked to the IRA?
Oh the years go by and I’m not set free,
From the state of Desiree.

The years go by, I am not set free,
The state of Desiree.

Bell X1 – Sugar High (Live At Brattle Theatre, Boston) Lyrics

Let’s build up tall into the sky
We can sit on those beams and smile
And eat our sandwiches and smoke cigarettes
Like those boys who built New York City
No fear of falling, oh, it looks so pretty
Oh look, a funeral, a carnival

Sugar, sugar so high, high

Let’s build all this shit, no one’s ever gonna buy
When we come ’round we’ll blame the sugar high
And act all sheepish and kinda sorryish

They’ll just sit there like monuments
Plastic flapping in the wind like a flag so sad

Sugar, so high, high

Hey Charlie, don’t you know?
Seanie, don’t you know?
Paddy, don’t you know the Baileys?
Good old boys at the races

Yeah, in a big tent at the races

He’s a friend of mine, he’s a friend of yours
He’s a friend of ours like not so wise guys
Yeah, not so wise guys

And they’ll do anything for sugar, sugar so high, high
Yeah, anything for sugar, sugar so high, high

Anything, anything
Can’t let go of the good times
Good times, good times

Sugar so high
Sugar, sugar so high

Free to those who can afford it
To those who can afford it
Very dear to those who can’t
Those who can’t

Free to those who can afford it
To those who can afford it
Very dear to those who can’t
Those who can’t

And it’s God fearing, foreign car steering
60 thou Jabar wearing, just beat a trial hearing
You should catch me walking cocky out the courtroom (diddy bopping!)
Like eat my dust, a buck 40 for the Porsche zoom (ZOOOOOOOOOM!)
Back in population (what else?)

We on top of things, and we got them things (them birds)
But we only sell them birds, you tryna cop a wing? (you a petty hustler)
I know the real Rich…the REAL Richard Porter
RIP he left the hood to us, we own the corners! (HARLEM!)

And when the photo’s flash (SMILE!), Gallardies going pass
Lights, camera’s, autographs…”Wet Willies”, call a cab
The fast life is pricey, the time piece is icey (BLINGING!)
And my niggaz moving fish scale just like the Pisces!
Momma raised a thug, lawyers when we face the judge (Kelina!)
This is the chance we take to try and put ya brain on drugs
…and we invade the clubs standing on the furniture
Throwing gang signs, two stepping with our burners tucked (EASTSIIIIDE!)
and we will burn you up like three star alarm
WE ARE THE BOMB HUNDRED G’S ON THE CHARM (Byrd Gang!)
You’d think I own the cleaners how I wash that paper

[Chorus Two]

[Chorus One]

[Jim Jones]
The young and the restless…live life reckless
House money on the necklace the pigs want him arrested
Cause I’m obsessed with the guns and the vest’s

The rock star living (what else?), the hot cars and women (LAVISH LIFE!)
…the God forgive him, hope the cop cars don’t get ’em (SQUALIIIIIIIIE!)
This for them niggaz that…at the club, throwing stacks (BALLIN!)
At Star Wars, they threw two I threw four back!

My hat to the back, I stay flyer than a Frisbee

And the clouds still moving with the squamy (loaded)
and the gangsta’s don’t die, we get MONEEEEY and move to Miami!

When it’s repping time, I get on extra grind
40 cal, an extra nine Dipset the cities mine!

[Chorus Two]

Lion Babe – Native New Yorker Lyrics

Running pretty, New York City girl, 25, 35
Hello baby, New York City girl

You grew up riding the subways running with people
Up in Harlem, down on Broadway
You’re no tramp but you’re no lady
Talking that street talk
You’re the heart and soul of New York City

Love is just a passing word
It’s the thought you had in a taxi cab
That got left on the curb
When he dropped you off at East 83rd

You’re a native New Yorker

You should know the score by now
You’re a native New Yorker

There you are, lost in the shadows
Searching for someone
To set you free from New York City

Where did all those yesterdays go
When you still believed
Love could really be like a Broadway show
You are the star, when did it close?

You’re a native New Yorker
No one opens the door
For a native New Yorker

Rihanna Shows Plenty Cleavage On Date Night With A$AP Rocky

Fans are raving about Rihanna’s latest outfit for a night out with A$AP Rocky.

As one of the biggest female style icons on the planet, Rihanna tends to turn heads everywhere she goes. During her latest buzzworthy outing, the Savage X Fenty boss was spotted in a sexy leather ensemble while out in New York for dinner with her rumored boyfriend A$AP Rocky.

The beauty and fashion mogul was showing cleavage in an alluring mesh and leather pairing. Clad in an unbuttoned Bottega Veneta leather shirt that is worth around $4,000 according to Page Six, RiRi gave onlookers a glimpse of her black mesh bra and distinguishing chest tattoo.

The singer also donned a mesh Bottega Veneta coat and vintage YSL fur with white pumps and an R13 baseball cap. The overall look captured the attention of fans and admirers, some of who are probably extremely jealous of A$AP Rocky right now.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky just recently returned from their Christmas trip in Barbados where they were seen hand in hand on a pier enjoying some quality time. The couple met up in New York on Monday to have dinner at popular Italian restaurant Emilio’s Ballato.

According to ENews, a source says they arrived separately. “They entered the restaurant through different doors and tried to be discreet. A$AP Rocky entered behind a bodyguard and ducked inside quickly. Once everyone arrived, they sat together with a group of friends,” the source said. The couple also left the restaurant separately as according to this source, “They stayed for over two hours before leaving separately. Rihanna left with friends and avoided being seen with Rocky.”

The dinner was reportedly held to honor late A$AP Mob artist A$AP Yams, who died on January 18, 2015. Every year on the anniversary of his death, the Mob gathers for “Yams Day”. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were even spotted together at last year’s tribute in New York City, the 2020 Yams Day Benefit Concert.

Rihanna and A$AP have been trying to keep their relationship under wraps, but she is taking him home to the Caribbean and showing up two consecutive years to honor his departed friend. It’s safe to say these two are emotionally invested.

Do you think the couple has big Valentine’s Day plans?

Sam Hunt – Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s Lyrics

Play this song

[Intro]
Yeah, man, oh man, oh man

[Verse 1]
Bartender looked at me like
“Pony up, man, we’re closin’ down”
I paid the tab, and I turned around
Got on that phone on the way home
And ended up down the rabbit hole again
It’s funny how you haven’t changed a bit
But you’re twice as pretty
Glad you finally got to see New York City
And I know it’s not a race
But it looks like you’re gettin’ over me
Faster than I’m gettin’ over you
But hey, what you gon’ do?

[Chorus]
I’m sick of sittin’ at the house, dyin’ on my phone
Wishin’ I was somewhere I can be alone
Try to let you go, somethin’ always reminds me
I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s
I’m tired of gettin’ drunk, tired of bein’ free
Tired of seein’ pictures I don’t wanna see
Girl, you’re everywhere, everywhere but behind me
I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s

[Verse 2]
Back then, I could’ve convinced myself
That maybe you called when I was out
But you didn’t know what to say, so you didn’t leave a message
And that you’re probably at home right now, sound asleep
‘Cause goin’ out isn’t really your thing
And I wouldn’t have a clue what you been up to lately
Or who you been up to it with
But when I don’t miss your calls, I miss you callin’
And I go ’round and ’round again

[Chorus]
I’m sick of sittin’ at the house, dyin’ on my phone
Wishin’ I was somewhere I can be alone
Try to let you go, somethin’ always reminds me
I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s
I’m tired of gettin’ drunk, tired of bein’ free
Tired of seein’ pictures I don’t wanna see
Girl, you’re everywhere, everywhere but behind me
I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s

[Bridge]
Modern love, it’s the modern hearts breakin’
I’m just a product of my generation, and I
‘Bout had enough, watchin’ you gettin’ on with your life

[Chorus]
Baby, I’m sick of sittin’ at the house, dyin’ on my phone
Wishin’ I was somewhere I can be alone
I try to let you go, somethin’ always reminds me
(I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s)
I’m tired of gettin’ drunk, tired of bein’ free
Tired of seein’ pictures I don’t wanna see
Girl, you’re everywhere, everywhere but behind me
I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s

[Outro]
Hearts breakin’
I’m a product of my
Oh, a product of my generation, oh, and I
My baby, my baby

Mandy Moore – Fifteen Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Young girl, up early
Wasn’t old enough to drive
Took a trip from Seminole County
With her mother by her side
Next up, New York City
World was falling at her feet
She thought she was making music
But she was only filling seats

[Chorus 1]
No regrets, with a few exceptions
Every wrong turn, was the right direction
Still a part of me
Still a part of me

[Verse 2]
Glowsticks, pink cotton candy
A touch of glitter on her lips
On parade for the radio station
So they’ll play her biggest hits
Missed prom, missed graduation
No college end of Fall
On the road with a boyband, singing
For the people in the mall

[Chorus 2]
No regrets, with a few exceptions
Learning to love all the imperfections
That are still a part of me
Still a part of me
Still a part of me
Still a part of me

[Instrumental Break]

[Bridge]
Somewhere between the demo
And the lonely public eye
So real, real famous
Without even knowing why

[Chorus 3]
No regrets, with a few exceptions
Every wrong turn was the right direction
Learning to love all the imperfections
That are still a part of me
Still a part of me
Still a part of me
Still a part of me

Tall Tall Trees – The Wind, She Whispers Lyrics

There is truth and there are stories
From the day when she was born
Like the hearts that beat before me
I will try
I will try
I will try

She was born near New York City
Where the lights can burn your eyes
It’s no wonder why it’s so pretty
Where the stars fall from the sky

Like the wind, she whispers sweetly
In my ear she sings in rhyme
Though the words I can’t remember
I will try
I will try
I will try

In the morning she’s an angel
After noon, she stands a child
By the evening time she’s singing
All through the night she dreams so wild

Like the wind, she whispers sweetly
In my ear she sings in rhyme
Though the words I can’t remember
I will try
I will try
I will try

Just to be there when the sun goes down
Not to freak out when the darkness rolls around
Doesn’t anybody see what I see?
Might be impossible to heal this body

No one tells me when I’m dreaming anymore
I’m drifting endless on a sea without a shore
Oh, my love, shine shine shine
And maybe I might finally find her tonight
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try, try
I will try, try
I will try, try

Drop top Rolls, she tryna catch a breeze like

Jonathan Ayaz – Oceans Lyrics

This life is crazy
Moving different places
New York City or west coast before the Fall
Only got some time
To make this mine
Let’s make this moment last, f**k it up til the last glass

Oh, we’re all just wanderers
Oh, taking it turn by turn
Oh, gonna let the record burn
Oh, oh

Just let the waves crash down
We’re gonna make the most of right now
Won’t be taken by the oceans
Won’t be taken by the oceans
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

So many doubt us
Crazy’s what they call us
Cuz we refuse to say anything will get in our way
Try to take my style
Catch up it’ll take a while
I’m in a different lane, making them go insane

Oh, we’re all just wanderers
Oh, taking it turn by turn
Oh, gonna let the record burn
Oh, oh

Just let the waves crash down
We’re gonna make the most of right now
Won’t be taken by the oceans

Pete Molinari – New York City Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m alive in New York City
I’m alive in New York City
New York City is keeping me alive

Ain’t no need to strive in New York City
No need to strive in New York City
Ah, New York City is keeping me alive

[Chorus]
Well it’s not so bad
Ah, but then it’s really not that good
Where I go I see all the people sad
They wouldn’t help even if they could

[Verse 2]
I’m alive in New York City
Your spirit dies in New York City
Ah, New York City is keeping me alive

[Chorus]
Well if I just had
Another chance to do some good
Where I go I see all the people sad
I help you, I help you if I could

[Verse 3]
I’m alive in New York City
I’m alive in New York City
New York City is keeping me alive

I’m alive in New York City
Your brains get fried in New York City

Chelsea Cutler – Crazier Things Lyrics

[Snippet]

[Verse 1]
I’ve been trying not to think about it, I can’t help it
I know you don’t wanna hear from me, but I am selfish
And it kills me inside that you can drink on Friday nights
And not even pick up the phone
Yeah, it amazes me that you move on so easily
From someone that you once called home

I wish you had enough discipline for the both of us
Just because I don’t know how to turn off the way I feel
I know you always fell out love so damn easily
But honestly, I don’t think you ever had something real

[Pre-Chorus]
Until you met me, drinks in New York City
f**k, you looked so pretty
Think I fell in love before I even knew your birthday
Kissed you on our first date
Somehow I knew someday
This would hurt ’cause I could never let you go

[Chorus]
Oh, I’ll spend my whole life
Hoping your heart is free, heart is free
Oh, I’ll spend my whole life
Hoping your heart is free, heart is free
Oh I’ll spend my whole life
This ain’t part of me, part of me
‘Cause you had all of me honestly

[Verse 2]

[Pre-Chorus]
Until you met me, drinks in New York City
f**k, you looked so pretty
Think I fell in love before I even knew your birthday
Kissed you on our first date
Somehow I knew someday
This would hurt ’cause I could never let you go

[Chorus]
Oh, I’ll spend my whole life
Hoping your heart is free, heart is free
Oh, I’ll spend my whole life
Hoping your heart is free, heart is free
Oh I’ll spend my whole life
This ain’t part of me, part of me
‘Cause you had all of me honestly

Haha (Nitrose)
This a sick one, yeah
New York City, the city of dreams
Yeah, uh, yeah

[Verse 1: G-Eazy]
Staying up, they’re like, “What do you got against sleep?”
Playing Donnis first tape, presented by 10.Deep
Spending money like, “Fuck it,” because I ain’t cheap
Look, when you go away, it ain’t shit that you can keep
Feel like fuck it, we partying, going mad dumb
Up&Down, all these Soho girls wanna have fun
Life is easy when all you doing is taking photos
She got a couple of scars, but she don’t like to show those
Her agent books her a cover and everything is great
I can’t recall where I met her, a simple twist of fate
She ain’t used to all-nighters, so she thinks 6 is late
The sun is up and these demons still tryna pass a plate
Couple drugs in my system, faded, my vision is blurry
Phone on one percent, I called an Uber quick in a hurry
Die, fuck it, I’m here, now my phone is dead
I’m fucked up, I know I should go to bed, but fuck it

[Chorus: G-Eazy]
We don’t never really sleep, I’m still up now
Dodging raindrops, tryna duck clouds
I don’t fuck with people, I don’t like crowds
It’s my world and I don’t give a fuck now, yeah
Got me thinking ’bout my life
If I could do it all again, I’d do it twice
If I could do it all again, Lord, forgive me for my sins
This city never sleeps under bright lights, yeah

[Verse 2: Dex Lauper]
Can’t believe my brother died outside of grandma house
He just took a bullet to the brain, now I’m standing under a cloud
No one ever gonna give a fuck about you now
That’s why I ride around with a stain and there ain’t no looking down
As a youngin, the devil pulled up and mama gave him my soul
When you try and buy your masters back, and then your death’s the goal
But how you gon’ tell me about this life when you ain’t got your soul?
Drug you up like a puppet, and then they go and take control
I lost my brother, had to go ‘head and look at my life
If I regret it or I’m just go’n ‘head and just get that ice
If I’m in Inglewood, then I’m just with my blooda Ice
I’m on a time where I might just go ahead and risk my life
See all them times when you do wrong, know you gon’ pay the price
I swear that karma the biggest bitch I met up in my life
In this industry, that’s all they know is sacrifice
They tried to go tell me they just wanna take my life

[Chorus: G-Eazy]
We don’t never really sleep, I’m still up now
Dodging raindrops, tryna duck clouds
I don’t fuck with people, I don’t like crowds
It’s my world and I don’t give a fuck now, yeah
Got me thinking ’bout my life
If I could do it all again, I’d do it twice
If I could do it all again, Lord, forgive me for my sins
This city never sleeps under bright lights, yeah

Taylor Swift – False God Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
We were crazy to think
Crazy to think that this could work
Remember how I said I’d die for you?
We were stupid to jump
In the ocean separating us
Remember how I’d fly to you?

[Pre-Chorus]
And I can’t talk to you when you’re like this
Staring out the window like I’m not your favorite town
I’m New York City
I still do it for you, babe
They all warned us about times like this
They say the road gets hard and you get lost
When you’re led by blind faith, blind faith

[Chorus]
But we might just get away with it
Religion’s in your lips
Even if it’s a false god
We’d still worship
We might just get away with it
The altar is my hips
Even if it’s a false god
We’d still worship this love
We’d still worship this love
We’d still worship this love

[Verse 2]
I know heaven’s a thing
I go there when you touch me, honey
Hell is when I fight with you
But we can patch it up good
Make confessions and we’re begging for forgiveness
Got the wine for you

[Pre-Chorus]
And you can’t talk to me when I’m like this
Daring you to leave me just so I can try and scare you
You’re the West Village
You still do it for me, babe
They all warned us about times like this
They say the road gets hard and you get lost
When you’re led by blind faith, blind faith

[Chorus]
But we might just get away with it
Religion’s in your lips
Even if it’s a false god
We’d still worship
We might just get away with it
The altar is my hips
Even if it’s a false god
We’d still worship this love
We’d still worship this love
We’d still worship this love, ah

[Outro]
Still worship this love
Even if it’s a false god
Even if it’s a false god
Still worship this love

Play this song

[Verse 1]
Took a trip to San Francisco
All  our friends said we would jive
Didn’t  work, so I left for Fresno
It was quite a scenic drive
Pulled over to watch the children in the park
Used  to only worry about them after dark

[Chorus]
I’m  still looking for my own version of America
One without the gun, where the flag can freely fly
No  bombs in the sky, only fireworks when you and I collide
It’s just a dream I had in mind
It’s just a dream I had in mind
It’s just a dream I had in mind

[Verse 2]
Took  a flight to New York City
I miss that Hudson River line
Took the train back to Lake Placid
That’s another space and time
Where we used to go to drive-ins and listen to the blues
So many things that I think twice about before I do, yeah

[Chorus]
I’m still looking for my own version of America
One without the gun, where the flag can freely fly
No bombs in the sky, only fireworks when you and I collide
It’s just a dream I had in mind
It’s just a dream I had in mind
It’s just a dream I had in mind

It’s just a dream I had in mind

Uh, live from the DM, I’m hollerin’ at your BM
We discussin’ which color casket you ’bout to leave in
I did this shit for no reason, I’m lettin’ rookies battle
But how did I get in this battle with A Boogie’s shadow?
Big Apple, New York City, more to pity
How could I beef with a dude only poppin’ in four cities?
I made Forbes with Diddys and sat top floors with 50s
And now I’m fully open, I play the bully on ’em
Call for your squad, you rest, you get decimated
You lookin’ like a Styles P nephew that never made it
Forever hated on niggas like Boogie and me
’Cause we was poppin’ in New York and every hood that you see
The day you beat me will be the day you see see
HOT 97 feedin’ you more lovin’ than they feed me
Don’t let these niggas gas you on that podcast and CC
Highbridge, the Label, but only one of y’all on TV
Only one of y’all’ll see awards and eat with the stars
It ain’t really hard to figure out who I’m speakin’ up for
Now that my foot and knee in the door, let’s talk about it, no walkin’ out it
We ’bout to see Le’Quincy body with the chalk around it
I got the full baggage
You drive a Jeep Wrangler, the basic edition, shit ain’t even the full package
Someone tell Quincy I turn beef into mince meat
Hottest of the century, why did he go up against me?
I show niggas love and hatred niggas wanna throw back
He tempted me but never had this energy for Kodak
You paid DreamDoll for a feature to get the pussy
And somehow you think you fuckin’ with me
The first night I seen DreamDoll I fucked her for free
And now you walk around like somehow you got one up on me
Nigga please, this your brother part
This nigga found Soulja Boy’s Gucci headband and wore it in his cover art
Why battle with A Boogie’s shadow?
Why battle with A Boogie’s shadow?
He ain’t even a chapter, he ain’t even a factor
QP and Bubba touchin’ way more money than him, they ain’t even the rappers
It hurts when you kill a nigga you love
Ironic that the salt thrown from the niggas that’s slugs
Chewin’ these niggas with no ingestion
I got a real message for my brother Quincy, my nigga, it’s time to go get tested
It’s a couple hoes in Starlets I know you infected
You really out here fuckin’ raw with a scrotum infection
And what’s worse is you know it, still you go unprotected
You need to focus on a hit, need to go get a record
See you can find a Don Q in the ho nigga section
Go get injected with whatever medicine you need to clear up
‘Cause them pills ain’t workin’ for every time it flare up
Yuck, I’ma let you breathe on that
I’m really beggin’ that you think about your physical health
You’ll never see your fuckin’ album on a physical shelf
I’ll beat your ass, whip your kid with the belt
You never flipped it to sell
You’re not a hustler, your daddy was a customer
I got the info from your baby mama playin’ nympho
You drive a foreign but them 25 hundred dollar hosts ain’t enough for you to pay those rentals
You a shameless mental, well my aim is mental, fuck it
My whole mood I showed y’all fuck it
My dick, I done told y’all suck it
I’ll punch your fat ass in your stomach
And make everything in it go up it
You wrote a tape for your nigga that died
You made a promise it would pop and that the shit would be live
Hurts that you had to tell my nigga a lie
‘Cause that mixtape flopped and so did your other five
Put the gun aside, my nigga, you ain’t the one to shoot
Big guns, nigga, you got locked for a 22
Pussy gotta keep a gun on his waist
‘Cause you lil’ niggas scared to get punched in your face
Jada said it best, Quincy made his bed to rest
Invest in a better vest
Better for my case, these bullets rather hit your head than chest
Quit actin’ like you the mob
You tryna play Gianni
But you got ran out of Amazura and Avianne
The Bridge is over, The Bridge is over
I got an extra long clip that’ll hit your soldiers
My hand shoot like shampoo hit his head and shoulders
I’ll send his nine year old a Barbie just to send condolence
Uh, not the money on the head
40 minutes on stage can put a hundred on his head
I made so much millis and hundreds of this bread
I can have the whole Highbridge comin’ for his head
Top floor, Glock’s stocked in the top drawer by the 38
Bound to bring Le’Quincy Anderson up to the pearly gates
Your daughter just came from turnin’ eight
And takin’ L’s right in front of her is what you tryna perpetrate?
All this blood make me regurgitate
Don’t let my Bronx niggas move and have to boost up the murder rate
But since we’re goin’ here, I’ll let you know I’m here
‘Cause this record right here’s ’bout to give you more shine than A Boogie ever gave you in your whole career
I spit fire, you from the east side of the Bronx, you just a Highbridge dick-rider
You mad at my nigga Mula ’cause his shit hotter
I know how it feels
Nah, I’m lyin’, I don’t know how it feels
I just know that everywhere I go a nigga know I’m s’posed to be real
And I don’t know how exposin’ me feel, fuck nigga

[Outro]
Just to keep it real, I’m only doin’ this shit with you once
You know, I…. I hope, I hope you enjoyed this shit though
I hope, I hope you take this as a blessing, you know?
This, this is a lot of pay-per-view time you’re gettin’ right now
I know you not used to this, you a little frightened
But it’s okay, my son, you know I still fuck with you, nigga
And you know, I mean, at least off of this, at least the celebrities might know your name now, you know?
Like… I hope I did that for you
Oh, in other words too, you wild ugly, nigga
Wild fuckin’ ugly, nigga
You wild ugly, nigga
Fuck outta here

Anne-Marie – Perfect 2 Me Lyrics

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t feel like putting makeup on my cheeks
Do what I wanna
Love every single part of my body
Top to the bottom
I’m not a supermodel from a magazine
I’m okay with not being perfect

[Chorus]
‘Cause that’s perfect to me (ooh, woah, ooh)
‘Cause that’s perfect to me (ooh, woah, ooh)
‘Cause that’s perfect to me (ooh)

[Verse 1]
No matter where I go, everybody stares at me
Not into fancy clothes, I’m rockin’ baggy jeans
Gettin’ too close for comfort but comfort is what I need
So I eat my body weight in chocolate and ice cream, huh
Maybe I bite my nails and don’t think before I speak
Don’t fit in any crowd, don’t ever get much sleep
I wish my legs were bigger, bigger than New York City
And I’ll love who I want to love, ’cause this love is gender-free

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t feel like putting makeup on my cheeks
Do what I wanna
Love every single part of my body
Top to the bottom
I’m not a supermodel from a magazine
I’m okay with not being perfect

[Chorus]
‘Cause that’s perfect to me (na, na, na-na, na, na, na-na, na, na, na-na)
‘Cause that’s perfect to me (la, la, la-la, la, la, la-la, la, la, la-la)
‘Cause that’s perfect to me

[Verse 2]
Sometimes I wake up late and don’t even brush my teeth
Just wanna stuff my face with leftover mac and cheese
You know I get depressed, are you impressed with my honesty?
Still I’ll wear what I wanna wear ’cause I’m cool with what’s underneath, mmm
I wanna kiss someone that I’ll never see again
I wanna go somewhere and go there with all my friends
I wanna take my family to go and see Eminem
‘Cause my sister’s been in love with him since like we were 10

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t feel like putting makeup on my cheeks
Do what I wanna
Love every single part of my body
Top to the bottom
I’m not a supermodel from a magazine
I’m okay with not being perfect

[Chorus]
‘Cause that’s perfect to me (na, na, na-na, na, na, na-na, na, na, na-na)
‘Cause that’s perfect to me (la, la, la-la, la, la, la-la, la, la, la-la)
‘Cause that’s perfect to me

[Bridge]
If you don’t wanna wear makeup, don’t wear makeup
If you don’t wanna break up, then kiss and make up
Remember if you wanna, you can go home
You can say that enough is enough, ah
Alright, this is your time
Time for your life to be yours

[Outro]
Don’t feel like putting makeup on my cheeks (oh, oh)
Do what I wanna (no, no, no)
Love every single part of my body (I love every single part of my body)
Top to the bottom
I’m not a supermodel from a magazine (yeah)
I’m okay with not being perfect
‘Cause that’s perfect to me

5 Seconds Of Summer – Lie To Me lyrics

[Verse 1: Luke]
I saw you looking brand new overnight
And I caught you looking too, but you didn’t look twice
You look happy, oh
You look happy, oh

[Pre Chorus: Luke & Calum]
Flashing back to New York City
Changing flights so you stay with me
Remember thinking that I got this right

[Chorus: Luke & Calum]
Now I wish we never met
Cause you’re too hard to forget
Now I’m cleaning up your mess
I know he’s taking off your dress
I know that you don’t, but if I ask you if you love me
I hope you lie, lie, lie
Lie to me

[Verse 2: Luke]
Sitting under the moonlight, it’s just you and me
If I make to dawn then it won’t be hard to sleep
I ain’t happy, oh
At least you’re happy, woah

[Pre Chorus: Luke & Calum]
Flashing back to New York City
Changing flights so you stay with me
How I must have thought I had this right

[Chorus: Luke & Calum]
Now I wish we never met
Cause your too hard to forget
While i’m cleaning up your mess
I know he’s taking off your dress
I know that you don’t, but if I ask you if you love me
I hope you lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie to me

Singing, la la la la la..
And I know that you don’t, but if I ask you if you love me
I hope you lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie to me

Ulrik Munther – Daughter lyrics

[Verse 1]
Early morning I watch you sleep
Not everyone is as lucky as me
I kiss your forehead before I leave
Soon you’ll be old and forget how it feels
To be young and in love
For the very first time build our home of our own
Have a child … what it’s like
When the sun is begining to rise

[Chorus]
Oh, how I hope that if we have a daughter
She’ll grow up to be like you
If she sometimes takes after her father
That would be okay too

[Verse 2]
We could move to another country
Grow our own food, get a couple of sheep
Or a place in maybe New York City
Right by the Statue of Liberty
Cause I know I’ll be fine
Just as long as I’ve got you right here by my side
There’s no fear in my eyes
So take me wherever you like

[Chorus]
And oh, how I hope that if we have a daughter
She’ll grow up to be like you
And if she sometimes takes after her father
That would be okay too

Owl City – New York City lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m digging through the glove box
I thought I had a map in here
The driver’s door doesn’t lock
I bought the car my junior year
There’s candy in my backpack
And you can pick our soundtrack
We’re heading for the East Coast tonight
So pack your bags and hold on tight
Cause we’re taking off
We’re taking off

We’re taking off

[Chorus]
Run away with me
We’re on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go so
Run away with me
And say hello to New York City

[Verse 2]
Feet up on the dashboard
We’re driving with the windows down
Did you forget your phone cord?
We’ll buy one in the next small town
Get dinner at an IHOP
A shower at a truck stop
We’ll listen to some Johnny Cash
Take my hand and don’t look back
Cause we’re moving on

We’re moving on

[Chorus]
Run away with me
We’re on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go so
Run away with me
And say hello to New York City

Run away
Run away
Run away
Run away

[Chorus]
Run away with me
We’re on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go so
Run away with me…

[Outro]
Stroll the downtown streets
And tell me that you don’t feel giddy
Lady Liberty
Ain’t throwing us a wink or is she?
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go so
Run away with me
And say hello to New York City
Say hello to New York City
Say hello to New York City

Portugal. The Man – Mr. Lonely (feat. Fatlip) lyrics

[Intro]
(New York City, 1977, here we go)

[Verse 1: Zoe Manville & John Gourley]
Are you living your teens in a shed?
Is growing up giving you the bends?
Is my little sunshine getting jealous of the moonbeams
Feeling gloomy in your bed?
You left your friends where the pavement ends
The road of broken bones begins
Between here and now
There’s glitter falling and a banner that says “welcome to hell”
Make yourself at home but leave behind free will
Can you feel me now?

[Pre-Chorus: John Gourley & Zoe Manville]
You know I can’t feel this pain in my heart
Because it’s hard to see it falling apart
Maybe I’m too blind to see why trouble finds me
But if it’s here I’d rather see where it leads
Call me Mr. Lonely

[Chorus: Zach Carothers & Zoe Manville]
You can call me anything, call me if you know me
You can call me king, I got 48 below me
You can call me anything, call me if you know me
You can call me king but there ain’t a lot below me
You can call me king, I’m the king, you wanna know me
But no one calls me, call me Mr. Lonely

[Verse 3: John Gourley]
The stars are falling and I bet they got some stories to tell
Be like long ago when I knew you well
Listen for a change
Can you hear it now?

[Pre-Chorus: John Gourley & Zoe Manville]
You know I can’t feel this pain in my heart
Because it’s honestly been falling apart
Maybe I’m too blind to see how trouble finds me
Well if it’s here I’m gonna see where it leads
Call me Mr. Lonely

[Chorus: Zach Carothers & Zoe Manville]
You can call me anything, call me if you know me
You can call me king, I got 48 below me
You can call me anything, call me if you know me
You can call me king but there ain’t a lot below me
You can call me king, I’m the king, you wanna know me
But no one calls me, call me Mr. Lonely

[Verse 4: Zoe Manville]
Do you whisper your dreams to the deaf (hello?)
Deny that it’s all in your head (that thought)
The bitter past sleeps, sitting pretty in a limousine
Lookin’ cruely under-fed (the real king)
Leave your friends where the pavement ends
The road of broken promise begins
Feet, don’t fail me now

[Verse 5: Fat Lip]
Broken promises, alcohol anonymous
Inducted in the hall of fame for vomitin’
I puked around the world, I’m the Duke of Earl
I used to have a girl but she wasn’t happy
She left me naturally, she left with Natalie
They left in the back of a taxi, they was laughin’ at me
So I lit the club, bottles up, poppin’ shit
False sense of happiness, perhaps I’ll take what I get
I guess it’s better than nothin’, right?
Least I got this blunt to light
I’m doin’ what I want tonight
Tomorrow I’m like “fuck my life”
Laugh once, cry twice
I’m bad at takin’ good advice
Man this lonely life ain’t nothin’ nice

Lauv – I Like Me Better lyrics

[Verse 1]
To be young and in love in New York City
To not know who I am but still know that I’m good long as you’re here with me
To be drunk and in love in New York City
Midnight into morning coffee, burning through the hours talking
Damn

[Chorus]
I like me better when I’m with you
I like me better when I’m with you
I knew from the first time, I’d stay for a long time, ’cause
I like me better when, I like me better when I’m with you

[Verse 2]
I don’t know what it is but I got that feeling
Waking up in this bed next to you swear the room, yeah, it got no ceiling
If we lay, let the day just pass us by
I might get to too much talking, I might have to tell you something
Damn

[Chorus]
I like me better when I’m with you
I like me better when I’m with you
I knew from the first time, I’d stay for a long time, ’cause
I like me better when, I like me better when I’m with you

[Bridge]
Stay awhile, stay awhile
Stay here with me
Stay awhile, stay awhile, oh
Stay awhile, stay awhile
Stay here with me
Lay here with me, ooh

[Chorus]
I like me better when I’m with you (yes I do, yes I do, babe)
I like me better when I’m with you (oooh noo)
I knew from the first time, I’d stay for a long time, ’cause
I like me better when, I like me better when I’m with you

[Outro]
(I like me, I like me)
(Look who you made me, made me, oh noo)
Better when
I like me better when I’m with you
