EP: "Dark End Of The Street" (2008)

Dark End Of The Street lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by James Carr)

At the dark end of the street
That's where we will always meet
Hiding in shadows where we don't belong
Living in darkness to right our wrong

You and me at the dark end of the street
You and me

I know time's gonna take its toll
We have to pay for the love we stole
It's a sin and we know it's wrong
But our love keeps comin' on strong

Steal away to the dark end of the street

They're gonna find us
They're gonna find us
Someday they may come along and find us alone somewhere

You and me at the dark end of the street
You and me

And when the daylight cover rolls around
And if by chance we're both taken in and taken downtown
But if we should meet before then, then just walk on by
Oh, sweet baby, please don't you cry

Cuz tonight we'll share the same dream
At the dark end of the street
You and me
You and me
You and me

At the dark end of the street

Fortunate Son lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Creedence Clearwater Revival)

Some folks are born made to wave the flag
Ooh, the red, white and blue
And when the band plays "Hail to the Chief"
They point the cannon right at you, Lord

It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no senator's son, no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, no

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Ah, they really help themselves
But when the tax man comes to the door
Lord, the house look a rummage sale, oh yeah

It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no millionaire's son, no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, no

Some folks inherit star-spangled eyes
Ooh, they send you down to war
And when you ask them, "How much should I give?"
Oh, they only answer, "More"

It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no military son, no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, no

It ain't me, it ain't me, no
It ain't me, it'll never be me
I ain't no fortunate one, no

Ye Auld Triangle lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Brendan Behan)


A hungry feeling, came o'er me stealing
And the mice they were squealing in my prison cell
And that auld triangle, went jingle jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal.

Oh to start the morning, the warden bawling
Get up out of bed you, and clean out your cell
And that auld triangle, went jingle jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal.

Oh the screw was peeping and the lag was sleeping
As he lay weeping for his girl Sal
And that auld triangle, went jingle jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal.

On a fine spring evening, the lag lay dreaming
And the seagulls were wheeling high above the wall
And that auld triangle, went jingle jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal.

Oh the wind was sighing, and the day was dying
As the lag lay crying in his prision cell
And that auld triangle, went jingle bloody jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal.

In the female prison there are seventy women
And I wish it was with them that I did dwell
And that auld triangle, went jingle jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal

I've Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now) lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Otis Redding)

I've been loving you too long to stop now
There were time and you want to be free
My love is growing stronger, as you become a haven to me
Oh I've been loving you a little too long
I don't wanna stop now, oh
With you my life,
Has been so wonderful
I can't stop now
There were times and your love is growing cold
My love is growing stronger as our affair (affair) grows old
I've been loving you a little too long, long,
I don't want to stop now
oh, oh, oh
I've been loving you a little bit too long
I don't wanna stop now
No, no, no
Don't make me stop now
No baby
I'm down on my knees Please, don't make me stop now
I love you, I love you,
I love you with all of my heart
And I can't stop now
Don't make me stop now
Please, please don't make me stop now
(Good god of mine)I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you
I love you in so many different ways...
I love you in so many different ways

Who Knows Where The Time Goes lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Sandy Denny)

Sad, deserted shore
your fickle friends are leaving
but i am not alone
while my love is near

who knows where the time goes?
who knows where the time goes?

sad, deserted streets
your fickle friends are leaving
i still count the time
when my love was here

who knows where the time goes?

It Ain't Fair lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Aretha Franklin)

People
All around me
But I don't even
Have a friend
Lord knows
I been trying
And he knows
I just can't win
Everything I do
Yeah
Seems to turn
Out wrong
Sometimes
I wish now
That I never
Been born
Whoa

Nobody
Nobody cares
Nobody cares
Baby
You know
I've had my share
Just ain't fair
(Just ain't fair)
Just ain't fair
(Just ain't fair)

Some folks
Got it easy
They live
The life of love
And play
Lord knows
I got
To struggle now
Trying
To make my way

Yeah
I'm walking all day
I'm gonna
Reach the town
I believe
I hope
I can make it yeah
Beacuse my feet
Ain't gonna
Let me stop
Talking about
Jesus

Nobody
Nobody cares
Nobody cares
Baby
I've had my share
Just ain't fair
Just ain't fair
It just ain't fair
It just ain't fair
It just ain't fair
I've had my share

New York lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Liza Minnelli)

Start spreadin' the news
I'm leavin' today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

These vagabond shoes
Are longin' to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

I want to wake up in a city that doesn't sleep
To find I'm cream of the crop and top of the heap

These little-town blues
Are meltin' away
I'll make a brand-new start of it
Oh, in New York

If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
New York
It's up to you
New York

Ramblin' (Wo)man lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Hank Williams)

Well I love you baby
But you got to understand
When the Lord made me
He made a ramblin' woman
He made me, he made me

Some folks
Some folks might say that I'm no good
That I wouldn't settle down if I only could
I love to see the towns go crawling by
There's something I've got to do
Before I die

I love you baby
But you got to understand
When the Lord made me
He made a ramblin' woman
He made me, he made me

Some people say
That I do just fine
Cause I hear sweet song
Moving down
And when that old southern train comes calling me
There's something over the hill
I just got to see

Well I love you
I love you baby
But you've got to understand
When the Lord made me
He made me
He made a ramblin' woman
He made me, he made me

Now when I'm gone
When I'm gone and at my grave you stand
Just say God's called home your ramblin' woman

I love you
I love you baby
But you've got to understand
He made me, a ramblin' woman
He made me

Metal Heart lyrics - Cat Power

Losing the star without a sky
Losing the reasons why
You're losing the calling that you've been faking
And I'm not kidding

It's damned if you don't and it's damned if you do
Be true, 'cause they'll lock you up in a sad, sad zoo
Oh, hidy-hidy-hiding, whatcha trying to prove?
By hidy-hidy-hiding
You're not worth a thing

Sew your fortunes on a string
And hold them up to light
Blue smoke will take
A very violent flight
And you will be changed and everything
And you will be
In a very sad, sad zoo

I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see you
How selfish of you
To believe in the meaning of all the bad dreaming

Metal heart, you're not hiding
Metal heart, you're not worth a thing

Metal heart, you're not hiding
Metal heart, you're not worth a thing

Silver Stallion lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Lee Clayton)


I'm gonna steal a silver stallion
With not a mark upon his silky hide
Teach him he can trust me like a sister
One day we'll saddle up and ride

And we're gonna ride
We're gonna ride
Ride like the one-eyed Jack of Diamonds
With the Devil close behind
We're gonna ride
We're gonna ride...

I'm gonna find me a reckless man
Razor blades and ice in his eyes
Just a touch of sadness in his fingers
Thunder and lightning in his thighs

And we're gonna ride
We're gonna ride
Ride like the one-eyed Jack of Diamonds
With the Devil close behind
We're gonna ride
We're gonna ride...

I'm gonna chase the sky forever
With the man, the stallion and the wind
The sun is gonna burn into a cinder
Before we ever pass this way again

And we're gonna ride
We're gonna ride
Ride like the one-eyed Jack of Diamonds
With the Devil close behind
We're gonna ride
We're gonna ride...

Aretha, Sing One For Me lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by George Jackson)

Me and my baby, we had a big fight
We ended our romance the same night
In an angry mood, he walked out the door
I said this song's going to an Aretha Franklin show

Hey, Aretha, sing one for me
Let him know our life's in misery
Will you sing a song that will touch his heart
And make him sorry that we are apart

I don't know if taking requests is part of your show
Do me this favor and I'll love you forever
Many romances have been saved by your sound
You've touched so many lovers, so many times

Hey, Aretha, sing one for me
Let him know our life's in misery
Will you sing a song that will touch his heart
And make him sorry that we are apart

"Think", "Respect", "Call Me", "A Bridge Over Troubled Waters"
And "I Can't See Myself Leaving You"

Hey, Aretha, sing one for me
Let him know our life's in misery
Will you sing a song that will touch his heart
And make him sorry that we are apart

"Think", "Respect", "Call Me", "I Never Loved a Man Like I Love You"
And "I Can't See Myself Leaving You"

Lost Someone lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by James Brown)

I lost someone
A million to one
Ten thousand people
Under my false

Someone, the one, my one
The only one
That's the someone
The someone
The only one
That someone
That I lost

He's nothing but a stranger
Come on home to me
I'm so weak on my knees
Help me, help me please
Please, please
Good god almighty I love you

I lost someone
One trillion to one
A million people
Under the big old sun I see
My one on the street
Looking like a bum
That's my one
That's my someone
He's the one
He's
Help that one

He's nothing but a stranger
Bring him home to me
He's so weak on both his bended knees
Can you help me, help me please
Gee whiz, I miss the one that I need
I lost someone

Lord, Help The Poor And Needy lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Jessie Mae Hemphill)


Lord, help the poor and needy in this land, in this land...
when we all raise together and face the rising sun
Lord, help the poor and needy in this land

Lord, help the motherless children in this land, in this land...
when we all raise together and face the rising sun
Lord, help the motherless children in this land

Lord, help the war-torn peoples in this land, in this land...
when we all raise together and face the rising sun
Lord, help the war-torn peoples in this land

I Believe In You lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Bob Dylan)

They ask me how I feel
And if my love is real
And how I seem to think that I know I'm gonna make it through.
They look at me and frown,
They drove me from this town,
They don't want me around
'Cause I believe.

They show me to the door,
They said don't come back no more
We don't like the way you think you do.
So I walked out on my own
One thousand miles from home
But I don't feel alone
'Cause I believe.

I believe in you even through the all tears and laughter,
I believe in you even though we're apart.
I believe in you even on the morning after.
Oh, when the dawn is nearing
When the night is disappearing
This feeling will still be here in my heart.

Please don't let me drift too far,
Keep me safe and same where you are
So I can always be renewed.
And what you've given me here today
Is worth everything I could pay
And no matter what everyone will say
'Cause I believe
I believe, I believe,
I believe, I believe in you.

I believe in you when we've had no time together.
I believe in you when white turns to black,
I believe in you even though we'll all be outnumbered.
Oh, the earth will be shakin'
And friends will be forsaken
Please, we can't go back.

Song To Bobby lyrics - Cat Power


I wanna tell you
I've always wanted to tell you
But I never had the chance to say
What I feel in my heart from the beginning til my til my dying day

I was fifteen, sixteen maybe
In the park I was waving my arms
You were wet with sweat
And you sang the song I was screaming
I wanted you to

Another time was in South Carolina
It's always been the third encore
Whose wind came blowing in
Can you tell me who were you singing for
Oh my God, can you tell me who you were singing to

A phone call from your New York City office
You were supposedly asking to see me
And how I wanted to tell you
That I was just only four hundred miles away
Who could believe that you were calling I was in DC
I was four hundred miles behind
Backstage pass in my hand
Giving you my heart was my plan I wish I could tell you

My chance
In the middle of the stadium in Paris, France
Can I finally tell you
Can I finally tell you
To be my man
April in Paris, can I see you
Can you please be my man

Don't Explain lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Billie Holiday)
Hush now, don't explain
You're the cause of all my trouble and pain
Unless you're mine
Don't explain

My love, my love, my love, don't explain
There is nothing within me now to gain

You know that I love you, but look at what lovin' has done
All my thoughts were real and so sincere
I was so completely yours.

I know I hear folks ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-chatter
And I know you cheat
Right or wrong, right now it doesn't matter
You're with me, sit down, have a seat,
It's your turn to feel the pain.
It's your turn to weep.
Don't explain

Hush now, don't explain,
There is nothing within me now to gain.
I'm gonna skip out ??
Don't explain.
Don't explain.

Woman Left Lonely lyrics - Cat Power

(originally by Ella Brown)

A woman left lonely
will soon grow tired of waiting
she'll do crazy things
on lonely occasions

a simple conversation
with a new man now and again
makes a touchy situation
when a good thing's comin' to an end

and when she gets lonely
she's thinkin' 'bout her man
she knows he's takin' her for granted
honey, she doesn't understand

well, the fevers of the night,
they burn an unloved woman
yeah, those red-hot flames
try to push old love aside

a woman left lonely
is just a victim of her man, yes she is
when he can't give up his whole world, no
she's got to do the best that she can

a woman left lonely
that lonely girl
oh..

Blue lyrics - Cat Power

Blue
Songs are like tattoos
You know I’ve been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away

Hey blue
Here is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in

You’ve got to keep thinking
There’re so many sinking
You got to keep thinking
We can make it through these waves

Acid, booze and ass
Needles, guns and grass
Lots of laughs
Lots of laughs

Everybody’s saying that hell’s the hippest way to go out
I don’t think so
But I’m gonna take a look around it though
Blue, I love, I love you
I love you

Blue, here is a shell for you
Inside you’ll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me
Blue
From me
