Lyrical Friday

Welcome to Lyrical Friday! Music is so important in all of our creative journeys as well as in our own personal soundtrack of life.  So many songs have influenced me and I want to use this day to put up a video and lyrics of songs from all genre’s that I find to have some sort of beauty or impact, or that I just think are amusing!

 

I have a thing for Everlast. It falls back with that lyrical poet thing and the sexy raspy voice.  Many of you may remember him from House Of Pain (I saw them live).  His albums have been a far cry from the House of Pain days, but they have a unique appeal.  My favorite album so far has been Eat at Whitey’s which he did back in 2000.

 

Black Coffee from the 2000 album Eat at Whitey’s

 

Black Coffee

She smelled like flowers, she tastes like toffee
She kissed me slowly, she held me softly
Got too close and she backed up off me
Left me stone cold sober just like black coffee
Just like black coffee
She told me that she’d always be thinkin’ of me
She said she wanted me to know that she really did love me
She said she never put no one else above me
Except her monkey, she’s like a junkie
Just like a junkie, just like a junkie

It was April 25th, it’s up around 80
Found a spot out in the park where the grass is shady
She said her mom’s from Jamaica said her father’s from Haiti
Such a pretty lady, she’s such a lady

She smelled like flowers, she tastes like toffee
She kissed me slowly, she held me softly
Got too close and she backed up off me
She left me stone cold sober just like black coffee
Just like black coffee, just like black coffee , just like black coffee
