Fantastic SONG LYRICS

I thought it would be nice to have a chance to speak about what song lyrics really get to you. Here’s one of mine..

“I come awake,
with the gift to womankind

you’re still asleep,
but the gift don’t seem to mind”



WAKE UP AND MAKE LOVE WITH ME by Ian Dury and the Blockheads

The line is so crude - but ohhhh so honest!

Times, Nothing's right, if you ain't here
I'll give all that I have, just to keep you near
I wrote you a letter, I tried to, make it clear
You just don't believe that i'm sincere
I've been thinking about you, baby.
- Massive Attack - Live with Me (sung by Terry Callier)

Since hearing that song, would have to be one of my favourite lyrics to date. Its a song that you listen to, and just go 'wow, thats intense'

Either that, or Tool - Rosetta Stoned, based on the 'ahhh FUCK' principle that occurs to me all too often:

Quote:
Overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position.
Such a heavy burden now to be the One
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.

But I forgot my pen
Shit the bed again ...
Typical.

Riots by the people for the people
Who are only destroying themselves
And when you see a frightened
Person who is frightened by the
People who are scorching this earth."


I'M JUST A SINGER IN A ROCK AND ROLL BAND by The Moody Blues
Great lyrics that are even more apt today than when the song was released in 1972!

I've got a bunch, but I'll start with about my favorite:

Loneliness and frustration
We both came down with an acute case
And when the lights came up at two
I caught a glimpse of you
And your face looked like something
Death brought with him in his suitcase

Your pretty face
It looked so wasted
Another pretty face
Devastated
The French Inhaler
He stamped and mailed her
"So long, Norman"
She said, "So long, Norman"


The French Inhaler - Warren Zevon

Great choice Fast Forward. Coincidentally, my choice would be the opening song of that album "Lost in a Lost World" I just couldn't pull out the best of this song, its all so good. Seventh Sojourn was recorded in 1972, all things considered these lyrics really are as applicable today as they were then, unfortunately.

I woke today, I was crying
Lost in a lost world
So many people are dying
Lost in a lost world
Some of them are living an illusion
Bounded by the darkness of their minds
In their eyes it's nation, against nation, against nation
With racial pride
Sad hearts they hide
Thinking only of themselves
They shun the light
(shun the light)
They think they're right
(think they're right)
Living in their empty shells

Oh, can you see their bodies thrashing
(so many people, so many people)
Crashing down around their feet
Angry people in the street
Telling them they've had their fill
Of politics, people who kill

Grow... the seed of evolution
(so many people, so many people)
Revolution everyone
It's just another form of gun
To do again what they have done
(so many people, so many people)
With all our brothers, youngest sons.
(so many people, so many people)

Everywhere you go you see them searching
Everywhere you turn you feel the pain
Everyone is looking for the answers
Well look again, come on my friend
Love will find us in the end
Come on my friend
(on my friend)
We've got to bend
(got to bend)
Down on our knees and say a prayer

Oh, can you see the world is pining
(so many people, so many people)
Pining for someone who really cares enough to share his love
With all of us so we can be
An ever loving family
Have we forgotten who loves who
(so many people, so many people)
Children from a family tree
That's longer than a centipede
Started long ago when you and I
Where only love....
(so many people, so many people)

I woke today, I was crying
Lost in a lost world
So many people are dying
Lost in a lost world
So many people, so many people
People lost in a lost world
So many people, so many people
People lost in a lost world

I often find that the most beautiful and inspiring lyrics are those that don't seem to be anything particularly special on their own - they don't bring you to any particular conclusion and yet through the ambiguity of the lyrics and the beauty of the music, you're pulled in and forced to look beyond the ambiguity of the words, assign them their significance and see a part of yourself reflected in the words of someone else.

Radiohead - Scatterbrain

I'm walking out in a force ten gale.
birds thrown around, bullets for hail.
the roof is pulling off by its fingernails.
your voice is rapping on my window sill

yesterday's headlines blown by the wind.
yesterday's people end up scatterbrain.
then any fool can easy pick a hole. (I only wish I could fall in)
a moving target in a firing range.

somewhere I'm not
scatterbrain.
somewhere I'm not
scatterbrain.
lightning fuse
powercut.
scatterbrain

FF, for fear of dominating this thread and sort of derailing it, I'll post this wonderful YouTube video set to Lost in a Lost world and no more. Keep in mind this song was recorded 35 years ago. When I listened to it then I had thoughts of Viet Nam. Of the Cold War. Of a totally different world that we live in today. Or maybe not so different, after all.

Slow dance at the end of the night
Everyones looking who cares if its right
You're head on my chest, I held you so tight
Don't care what they had to say
My feet were to drunk to keep step in time
But we held fast and we made it through fine
You smiled a lot
Hell, you smiled a lot
Chairs up on tables and mopping up floors
And we're still dancing just like before
You held me tight
Ah, you held me tight
Light from the disco ball surrounds us with stars
And I looked like trouble right from the start
You told me so
Hell, you told me so
Smoking the cigarettes more than I should
My hands wont stop shaking and that can't be good
I would forget you if I only could
Think about anything else
Well that slow dance didn't last very long
So now I guess I'll be moving on
It was nice
Goddamn it was nice"

I love this song and the lyrics hit me harder than any other song ever has.

Looking out the window, the trees are getting closer it seems.
Thinking bout you Darling.
Adding up the cost of these dreams.

Strapped to this projectile, just a blink ago I was back in school.
Smoking by the gym door, practicing my rock-star attitude

And I'm scared shitless of what's coming next.
I'm scared shitless, these angels I see in the trees are waiting for me.

The engines have stopped now. We all know we are going down. Last call for alcohol.
Sure wish I could have another round.

And I'm scared shitless of what's coming next.
Scared shitless, these angels I see in the trees are waiting for me.
Waiting for me.

Friends in the swamp.
Friends on the ground, in the trees.
Angels and fuselage.

So, today I'm in a lovey mood and I've got three songs...

When your body gets weak - Babyface

Tonight I'm gonna hold you
I'm gonna touch you, and lay you down
Tonight I'm gonna kiss you
I'm gonna taste you, all the way down

Tonight you don't have to be lonely
You need only to call me
And I will be down

When your body gets weak
And you need some affection, oh baby
I'll lay you down
When your body's in need
And you need some attention, oh lady
I'll lay you down

Tonight when I've been inside you
I'll lay down beside you,
and stay all night long,
yes I will
[ Lyrics provided by www.mp3lyrics.org ]
Tonight I just want you to teach me
Girl I just want to please thee
So just let's get it on, baby

Tonight there be no intermissions
I have only one mission
That's turning you on

[ HOOK ]

Tonight you don't have to be lonely
You need only to call me
And I will be down

[ HOOK ]

The Day - Babyface

Twas late December the news came
And I got so excited, I cried all day
And you were such a lovely, precious SIGHT
When I saw our baby in your eyes

It was like falling deep in love
I heard the angels cry above
I felt a blessing straight from God
The day that you gave me a son

I called 'bout everyone I knew
Just think, I'll be a father 'cause of you
There's no greater love than what you gave
A brand new baby on the way

HOOK

Oh such tears of joy, I've never known
I can't remember
It's like a song, I've never heard
I've never sung, but know the words

HOOK

and

The Colour of my Love - Celine Dion

I'll paint my mood in shades of blue
Paint my soul to be with you
I'll sketch your lips in shaded tones
Draw your mouth to my own

I'll draw your arms around my waist
Then all doubt I shall erase
I'll paint the rain that softly lands on your wind-blown hair

I'll trace a hand to wipe out your tears
A look to calm your fears
A silhouette of dark and light
While we hold each other oh so tight

I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Swearing that we'll never part
That's the colour of my love

I'll paint the truth
Show how I feel
Try to make you completely real
I'll use a brush so light and fine
To draw you close and make you mine

I'll paint the truth
Show how I feel
Try to make you completely real
I'll use a brush so light and fine
To draw you close and make you mine

I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Swearing that we'll never part
That's the colour of my love

I'll draw the years all passing by
So much to learn so much to try

And with this ring our lives will start
Swearing that we'll never part
I offer what you cannot buy
Devoted love until we die

those are just three for now...but really really good quality FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC lyrics

Descriptions of emptiness and longing that I've listened to a time or two:

Sometimes In winter I gaze into the streets
and walk through snow and city sleet
behind your room.

Sometimes in winter forgotten memories
remember you behind the trees
with leaves that cry.

By the window once i waited for you,
laughing slightly you would run,
trees alone would chill us in the meadow,
making love in the evening sun.

Now your gone girl,
and the lamp posts call your name,
i can hear them in the spring of frozen rain.

Now your gone girl,
and the times slow down til dawn
its a cold room
and the walls ask where you've gone

Sometimes in winter I love you when the good times seem like memories
in the spring that never came.

Sometimes in winter, i wish the empty streets would fill with laughter
from your tears to ease my pain.

******************************

The summer had inhaled
And held its breath too long.
The winter looked the same,
As if it had never gone,
And through an open window,
Where no curtain hung,
I saw you, I saw you,
Coming back to me.

One begins to read between
The pages of a look.
The sound of sleepy music,
And suddenly, you're hooked.
I saw you, I saw you,
Coming back to me.

You came to stay and live my way,
Scatter my love like leaves in the wind.
You always say that you won't go away,
But I know what it always has been,
It always has been.

A transparent dream
Beneath an occasional sigh
Most of the time,
I just let it go by.
Now I wish it hadn't begun.
I saw you, I saw you,
Coming back to me.

Strolling the hill,
Overlooking the shore,
I realize I've been here before.
The shadow in the mist
Could have been anyone
I saw you, I saw you,
Coming back to me.

Small things like reasons
Are put in a jar.
Whatever happened to wishes,
Wished on a star?
Was it just something
That I made up for fun?
I saw you, I saw you,
Coming back to me.

*****************************

Sometimes, in the morning
I catch a falling dream
Disappearing scene.
And I think about a someone
That I will never see again
And now it's only me again.

Sometimes, in the morning
I think I hear a phrase
Echo through the haze,
And it's just beyond my vision
It's something that she said one night
Before we went to bed one night.

Sometimes, in the morning
When I go back to sleep
Trying hard to keep,
All my memories in motion
Wishing she were here my love
Whispering in my ear, my love.

You see your vision and no one else's
Your every word filled with sarcasm
Crucify people with invisible knowledge
Verbal destruction with each compulsion
We will see where you go
The future for you is nowhere
Every minute a cliche of your kind
Too much to say from a person with no respect
Your accusations you will regret
From the mentally blind come ideas that are poison
Take away the power, a shallow person you will find.

What would you do without your pathetic narrow-minded approach to life,
that reflects your lack of abilities
Your opinions are self-destructive
Despair is your gain, delight is corruption
Destined to fall prey to your stories,
creating problems for your consumption
We will see where you go
The future for you is nowhere
Every minute a cliche of your kind
Too much to say from a person with no respect
Your accusations you will regret
From the mentally blind come ideas that are poison
Take away the power, a shallow person you will find.


Death - Mentally Blind

The lyrics in this song apply to way too many people it seems O_o

Death - Trapped In A Corner

I want to watch you drown in your lies.
The end of your masquerade, a matter of time
Intertwining lies, domination, control
Feed his twisted nature
It is sickening to see dreams die
A word of advice, fate's patience is growing short.
Fake down to your mind and appearance
You will fall short of the dreams to destroy
In time you will find yourself trapped in a corner
These four words my friend, I promise you will not forget

I am one of many that see through your lies
Hiding will do you no good, many seek revenge.
Soon to become a victim of what you live to create, and cannot have.
It is sickening to see dreams die
A word of advice, fate's patience is growing short.
Fake down to your mind and appearance
You will fall short of the dreams to destroy

EDIT: Here's a live clip of Angels and Fuselage.



Here's another Drive-by Truckers song I love. It's called "Sounds Better in the Song" and is off the "Decoration Day" album:

When I saw her standing there, with her bright eyes and shining hair,
she was looking back at me.
Some are meant to sing, some are meant to talk and some aren’t meant to say a thing.
But when she opened up her mouth and that sweet voice came out
I lost track of my own name.
Now she’s found herself, and I lost mine
and I’m just another guy who can’t give her anything.

Well the drifter, He holds on to his youth just like it was money in the bank.
And “Lord knows, I can’t change” sounds better in the song
than it does with hell to pay.
I might as well of slipped that ring on your finger from a window of a van
as it drove away.
Now she’s found herself, and I lost mine
and I’m just another guy who can’t give her anything.

Dreams are given to you when you’re young enough to dream them
before they can do you any harm.
They don’t start to hurt, until you try to hold on to them after seeing how they really are.
She used to dream them with me, every single crazy one,
until they started hurting her too, now she’s got some of her own
and outgrowing me, might be the best thing for her she’s ever done.

A light that shines as bright as hers can’t be kept in the shadows for too long.
A heart that wants to live and a soul that wants to give
can’t just sit at home alone.
Lord, she’s give me everything and never wanted anything I couldn’t give.
Just what was inside of me.
And now she’s found herself, and I lost mine
and I’m just another guy who can’t give her anything.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

BTW. Do you know how the group "Lynyrd Skinner" got its' name?

The band comprised of high school friends where one of the teachers hated them for having long hair (yeah, it was that long ago) and generally badgered them for their "rock attitude". So when it came time to give the band a name they decided to give the teacher the utmost insult they could think of .... yep the teacher's name was Lynard Skinner. Rock on!

Lights out tonight
trouble in the heartland
Got a head-on collision
smashin' in my guts, man
I'm caught in a cross fire
that I don't understand
But there's one thing I know for sure girl
I don't give a damn
For the same old played out scenes
I don't give a damn
For just the in betweens
Honey, I want the heart, I want the soul
I want control right now
talk about a dream
Try to make it real
you wake up in the night
With a fear so real
Spend your life waiting
for a moment that just don't come
Well, don't waste your time waiting

(Chorus)
Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you've gotta pay
We'll keep pushin' till it's understood
and these badlands start treating us good

Workin' in the fields
till you get your back burned
Workin' `neath the wheel
till you get your facts learned
Baby I got my facts
learned real good right now
You better get it straight darling
Poor man wanna be rich,
rich man wanna be king
And a king ain't satisfied
till he rules everything
I wanna go out tonight,
I wanna find out what I got
Well I believe in the love that you gave me

I believe in the love that you gave me
I believe in the faith that could save me
I believe in the hope
and I pray that some day
It may raise me above these

(Chorus)

mmmmmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmmm

For the ones who had a notion,
a notion deep inside
That it ain't no sin
to be glad you're alive

I wanna find one face
that ain't looking through me
I wanna find one place,
I wanna spit in the face of these badlands

Badlands - Springsteen

Sometimes the faster it gets,
the less you need to know,
but you gotta remember
the smarter it gets,
the further it's gonna go
when you blow at high dough....

Wrenched into the world, deanesthetized
Blurry images fight their way through halfway opened eyes
Awakened by alarm, fifteen minutes of hygiene
Twenty minutes of eating, thirty seconds to the door
I looked outside, I looked into the eyes
Of the impersonal mob I've seen a thousand times before
Feelings under covers like books on a shelf
If we're scared of one another
We must be scared of ourselves

More than just another crowd
We need a gathering instead
Drink drink in the badlands, liquid bread for the poor
Another member of the crowd goes down to drown at the liquor store
Choose your escape in the heartland of product and demand
When you feel like a wasp in the swarm
You gotta get away anyway that you can


Operation Ivy's The Crowd

Abso-fucking-lutely amazing lyrics from such young kids in '89.
