Lyrical Friday

Kid Rock has always been a love of mine… secret or not so secret 😉 I have yet to see him live but hope to still get that opportunity some day. There has always been something about him that is catchy, fun and often over the top. His first album in 1990 Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast is a far cry from his 2010 album Born Free. Very different in style and content.  He has done a lot through the years that all types of music lovers can find joy in. He now rolls with the country rock thing and his latest is no longer really rap.  I dig it though and will probably always be a fan for whatever reason. For Lyrcial Friday, I had to pick Picture featuring Sheryl Crow, cause frankly nothing else was appropriate. 🙂 I do love this song and Kid Rock will always hold a special place in my musical heart.

Picture from Kid Rocks 2001 Album Cocky featuring Sheryl Crow

 
“Picture”
(feat. Sheryl Crow)

[Kid Rock]
Livin’ my life in a slow hell
Different girl every night at the hotel
I ain’t seen the sun shine in 3 damn days
Been fuelin’ up on cocaine and whisky
Wish I had a good girl to miss me
Lord I wonder if I’ll ever change my ways
I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can’t look at you while I’m lyin’ next to her
I put your picture away, sat down and cried today
I can’t look at you, while I’m lyin next to her[Sherly Crow]
I called you last night in the hotel
Everyone knows but they wont tell
But their half hearted smiles tell me
Somethin’ just ain’t right
I been waitin’ on you for a long time
Fuelin’ up on heartaches and cheap wine
I ain’t heard from you in 3 damn nights
I put your picture away
I wonder where you been
I can’t look at you while I’m lyin’ next to him
I put your picture away
I wonder where you been
I can’t look at you while I’m lyin’ next to him
I saw ya yesterday with an old friend[Kid Rock]
It was the same ole same “how have you been”
[Both]
Since you been gone my worlds been dark & grey
[Kid Rock]
You reminded me of brighter days
[Sheryl Crow]
I hoped you were comin’ home to stay
I was headed to church
[Kid Rock]
I was off to drink you away
[Both]
I thought about you for a long time
Can’t seem to get you off my mind
I can’t understand why we’re living life this way
I found your picture today
I swear I’ll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I found your picture today
I swear I’ll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I just called to say, I love you come back home

  1. That’s a good Kid Rock track, I always enjoyed the way their voices worked with each other. I actually saw Kid Rock play live, it was when Joe C was still alive and was a really good show. It’s funny, back to a previous Lyrical friday, you did the chili peppers and I of course new them, even have a couple of their albums, but I would never hear them anymore, and ever since seeing that post I hear them all the time- you must have some pull with the Music Directors this way-lol

    1. I keep hearing he puts on a great show. I can’t wait till he comes my way again, I will for sure have to see him this time.
      If only I had some pull with worlds musical directors! How awesome would that be. Life works funny that way with a lot of things. I have experienced that with words, movies or music… never heard it before, then I hear it all the time! I wonder if it is just a conscious thing. Something is now pulled to the forefront and we are now more aware. 🙂
