Favourite song lyrics

334 posts in this topic

What's your favourite lyric from a song. Doesn't have to be profound or something only a genius can truely understand. Just a line or two of a song you always enjoy hearing.

I have a few,

The Queen is Dead by The Smiths

So I broke into the Palace,

With a sponge and a rusty spanner,

She said, Eh I know you and cannot sing,

I said that's nothing you should hear me play piano

In the Land of Grey and Pink by Caravan

In the land of grey and pink where only boy-scouts stop to think,

They'll be coming back again, those nasty grumbly grimblies

Time by Pink Floyd

Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way,

The time is gone, the song is over, thought Id something more to say

And one which always makes me laugh,

I've Got Two Legs by Monty Python

I've got two legs from my hips to the ground,

And when I move them they walk around,

When I lift them they climb the stairs,

And when I shave them they ain't got hairs

"Walk A Mile In My Shoes" by Joe South

~~There are people on reservations and out in the ghettos

And brother there but for the grace of God go you and I

If I only had the wings of a little angel

Don't you know I'd fly to the top of the mountain, and then I'd cry.

Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes

And before you abuse, criticize and accuse

Walk a mile in my shoes.~~

Soundgarden "4th of July"

Shower in the dark day,

clean sparks diving down.

Cool in the waterway,

where the baptized drown.

Naked in the cold sun,

breathing life like fire.

I thought I was the only one,

but that was just a lie.

Good Stuff :tu:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgSY0QRkAQI

Swan Swan H lyrics

(Berry/Buck/Mills/Stipe)

Swan, swan, hummingbird

Hurrah, we are all free now

What noisy cats are we

Girl and dog he bore his cross

Swan, swan, hummingbird

Hurrah, we are all free now

A long, low time ago, people talk to me

Johnny Reb, what's the price of fans

Forty a piece or three for one dollar?

Hey captain, don't you want to buy

Some bone chains and toothpicks?

Night wings, her hair chains,

Here's your wooden greenback, sing

Wooden beams and dovetail sweep

I struck that picture ninety times,

I walked that path a hundred ninety,

Long, low time ago, people talk to me

A pistol hot cup of rhyme

The whiskey is water, the water is wine

Marching feet, Johnny Reb, what's the price of heroes?

Six in one, half dozen the other,

Tell that to the captain's mother,

Hey captain, don't you want to buy,

Some bone chains and toothpicks?

Night wings, her hair chains

Swan, swan, hummingbird

Hurrah, we are all free now

What noisy cats are we

Long, low time ago, people talk to me

A pistol hot cup of rhyme,

The whiskey is water, the water is wine

TOOL

Wings for Marie (Pt 2)

Listen to the tales and romanticize,

How we'd follow the path of the hero.

Boast about the day when the rivers overrun.

How we rise to the height of our halo.

Listen to the tales as we all rationalize

Our way into the arms of the savior,

Feigning all the trials and the tribulations;

None of us have actually been there.

Not like you.

Ignorant siblings in the congregation

Gather around spewing sympathy,

Spare me.

None of them can even hold a candle up to you.

Blinded by choice, these hypocrites won't see.

But, enough about the collective Judas.

Who could deny you were the one who

Illuminated your little piece of the divine?

And this little light of mine, a gift you passed on to me;

I'm gonna let it shine to guide you safely on your way,

Your way home ...

Oh, what are they going to do when the lights go down

Without you to guide them all to Zion?

What are they going to do when the rivers overrun

Other than tremble incessantly?

High is the way, but all eyes are upon the ground.

You were the light and the way they'll only read about.

I only pray, Heaven knows when to lift you out.

Ten thousand days in the fire is long enough;

You're going home.

You're the only one who can hold your head up high,

Shake your fists at the gates saying:

"I've come home now!

Fetch me the spirit, the son, and the father.

Tell them their pillar of faith has ascended.

It's time now!

My time now!

Give me my, give me my wings!"

You are the light and way that they will only read about.

Set as I am in my ways and my arrogance,

(With the) burden of proof tossed upon the believers.

You were my witness, my eyes, my evidence,

Judith Marie, unconditional one.

Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescents.

Difficult to see you in this light.

Please forgive this bold suggestion, but

Should you see your Maker's face tonight,

Look Him in the eye, look Him in the eye, and tell Him:

"I never lived a lie, never took a life, but surely saved one.

Hallelujah, it's time for you to bring me home."

Come hear the moon is calling,

The witching hour draws near,

Come hear the bell is tolling,

Mortals run in fear,

Hold fast the sacrafice,

Prepare the altar now and hear the virgin cry,

All hell breaks loose,

For now it's the time to die,

Unveil the pentagram,

Hell's breaking loose.

Come watch the holy men,

And feel the heat of satan's breath,

And feel the demons lust,

Come taste blood,

Who look on in disgust,

Look in the sky's and see,

The warriors of death,

All hell breaks loose,

Hell's breaking loose,

Our work is now complete,

Witching hour.

The blood runs fast and free,

And satan takes his bride,

And cry's of blasphemy,

All hell rejoices at the child,

That she will bear,

And satans only son,

Shall be the worlds despair,

All hell breaks loose,

Hell's breaking loose,

Witching hour

I don't mean to dwell

But I can't help myself

When I feel the vibe

And taste a memory

Of a time in life

When years seemed to stand still

I close my eyes

And sink within myself

Relive the gift of precious memories

In need of a fix called innocence

When did it begin?

The change to come was undetectable

The open wounds expose the importance of

Our innocence

A high that can never be bought or sold

Symbolic acts - so vivid

Yet at the same time

Were invisible

Savor what you feel and what you see

Things that may not seem important now

But may be tomorrow

Do you remember when

Things seemed so eternal?

Heroes were so real...

Their magic frozen in time

The only way to learn

Is be aware and hold on tight

I close my eyes

And sink within myself

Relive the gift of precious memories

In need of a fix called innocence

When did it begin?

The change to come was undetectable

The open wounds expose the importance of

Our innocence

A high that can never be bought or sold

Poison Cup by M. Ward:

She said if love,

if love,

is a poison cup... then drink it up.

'Cause a sip,

a sip,

or a spoonful won't do. Won't do nothin' for you,

...except mess you up.

Oxford Comma by Vampire Weekend:

Why would you lie 'bout how much coal you have? Why would you lie about something dumb like that?

Why would you lie 'bout anything at all? First the window, then it's to the wall.

Lil' Jon he always tells the truth.

The Breeze by Dr. Dog:

Is it a dream, keeping you awake?

Is it the stillness that makes you shake?

If you need to know for sure... whats on the ocean's floor. Then sing.

Do you like things, the way they seem?

Or are you lookin' behind the scenes.

Well if you got to know... what it takes to make it so. Just believe.

Are there dark parts,

to your mind?

Hidden secrets,

left behind.

Where no one ever goes, but everybody knows. It's alright.

First Sight by These United States:

With her mouth making movements, to introduce thoughts,

I sat, deafened by trust- on that sofa across.

Quietly calculating, the logistics of lust,

...of when unspoken things couldn't happen between us.

And once all those were done and we got through love,

we would shoot from the hip- reacting off of the cuff.

Splitting up at the fork when the going got rough, with a plan- for a point- to rejoin on the road further up.

All windows thin where the ice carved its' flowers,

I would hold her. Let the wind beat back those hours.

Then standing on subway trains clutching her dress, dependant, on her balance since-the-walls-were-useless.

And while it's alright to hold tight, please don't try to hold on. 'Cause its a homerun hit- love, 'cause it's going and gone.

But then the world turns so fast it was astoundingly still,

and it must've been that moment made of midnight on the hill.

24 hours later.....

OK so here are a few...

Near to you by: A Fine Frenzy

Near to you, I am healing

But it's taking so long

'Cause though he's gone

And you are wonderful

It's hard to move on

Yet, I'm better near to you.

You and I have something different

And I'm enjoying it cautiously

I'm battle scarred, I am working oh so hard

To get back to who I used to be

He's disappearing

Fading steadily

I'm so close to being yours

Won't you stay with me

Between the Lines by: Sara Barailles

My memory is cruel

Im queen of attention to details

Defending intentions if he fails

Until now, he told me her name

It sounded familiar in a way

I could have sworn i'd heard him say it ten thousand times

If only i had been listening

Leave unsaid unspoken

Eyes wide shut unopened

You and me

Always between the lines

Between the lines

Gravity by: Sara Barailles

Something always brings me back to you.

It never takes too long.

No matter what I say or do I'll still feel you here 'til the moment I'm gone.

You hold me without touch.

You keep me without chains.

I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your reign.

Set me free, leave me be. I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity.

Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I'm supposed to be.

But you're on to me and all over me.

I Know Him By Heart by: Vonda Shepard

There's a secret path I follow

To a place no one can find

Where I meet my perfect someone

I've kept hidden in my mind

Where my heart makes my decisions

'Till my dream becomes a vision

And the love I feel

Makes him real someday

'Cause I know he's out there somewhere

Just beyond my reach

Though I've never really touched him

Or ever heard him speak

Though we've never been together

We've never been apart

No we've never met

Haven't found him yet

But I know him by heart

Am I living in an illusion?

Wanting something I can't see

If I compromise, I'd be living lies

Pretending love's not meant to be

'Cause I know my heart's worth saving

And I know that he'll be waiting

So I'll hold on and I'll stay strong 'till then

No we've never met

Haven't found him yet

But I know him by heart

No we've never met

Haven't found him yet

But I know him by heart

Counting to 100 By: Matt Wertz

So you go hide

And I'll come seek

Maybe someday in the middle

We just might meet

because I'm counting to a hundred

And I promise I won't peek

As you go hide

And I come seek

How much longer will this game go on

I guess summer time will tell

Cause I hate to hear that you're all alone

Overlooked in search of someone else

It's kind of funny; as a general rule my least favorite music is country music and I really am not a fan of sappy love songs in general either.

However, two of my favorite songs are pretty much epic love songs and one could arguably be called a country song LOL

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, Crosby, Still, and Nash (plain text lyrics)

(YouTube Video)

... Chestnut brown canary

Ruby throated sparrow

Sing a song, don't be long

Thrill me to the marrow

Voices of the angels

Ring around the moonlight

Asking me, said she so free

How can you catch the sparrow

Lacy lilting lyric

Losing love lamenting

Change my life, make it right

Be my lady

And, for some odd reason I've always adored this epic love song as well: LOL

El Paso, Marty Robbins (full lyrics from Marty Robbins' Web site)

(YouTube Video)

...

So in anger

I challenged his right for the love of this maiden

Down went his hand for the gun that he wore

My challenge was answered in less than a heartbeat

The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor

Just for a moment I stood there in silence

Shocked by the foul, evil deed I had done

Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there

I had but one chance and that was to run

Out through the back door of Rosa's I ran

Out where the horses were tied

I caught a good one, it looked like it could run

Up on its back and away I did ride Just as fast as

I could from the West Texas town of El Paso

Out to the badlands of New Mexico ....

Alice in Chains "Angry Chair" great song. :tu:

Sitting on an angry chair

Angry walls that steal the air

Stomach hurts and I dont care

What do I see across the way

See myself molded in clay

Stares at me, yeah Im afraid

Changing the shape of his face

Candles red I have a pair

Shadows dancing everywhere

Burning on the angry chair

Little boy made a mistake

Pink cloud has now turned to gray

All that I want is to play

Get on your knees, time to pray, boy

I dont mind, yeah

I dont mind, i-i-i

I dont mind, yeah,

I dont mind, i-i-i

Lost my mind, yeah

But I dont mind, i-i-i

Cant find it anywhere

I dont mind

Corporate prison, we stay

Im a dull boy, work all da y

So Im strung out anyway

Loneliness is not a phase

Field of pain is where I graze <---- I like this image for some reason B)

Serenity is far away

Saw my reflection and cried

So little hope that I died

Feed me your lies, open wide

Weight of my heart, not the size

Pink cloud has now turned to gray

All that I want is to play

Get on your knees time to pray

Germs ~ "Manimal"

I came into this world like a puzzled

panther

Wanting to be caged

But something stood in the way

I was never quite tamed

Black Flag ~ "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme"

Sitting here I'm a loaded gun

Waiting to go off

I've got nothing to do

But shoot my mouth off

Black Flag ~ "Best One Yet"

You say you don't like the things I've done

You say you don't like what I've become

When you look into the mirror, tell me what you see

When you see yourself then you'll see me

This will be the best one yet

This will be the best one yet

This will be the best one yet

Gary Numan ~ "This Wreckage"

And what if God's dead

We must have done something wrong

This dark facade ends

We're independent from someone

This wreckage I call me

Would like to frame your voice

This wreckage I call me

Would like to meet you, meet you

Soon

Joy Division ~ "Heart and Soul"

Existence well what does it matter?

I exist on the best terms I can.

The past is now part of my future,

The present is well out of hand.

The present is well out of hand.

The Waitresses ~ "Jimmy Tomorrow"

My goals?

My goals are to find a cure for irony

and make a fool out of God.

Throbbing Gristle ~ "Six Six Sixties"

I am one of the injured

A tear blurs flesh

Dissolving

Like an injured dog

Like wasted limbs

Get smaller

Pain is the stimulus of pain

But then of course nothing is cured

This is the world now

Move a fin and the world turns

Sit in a chair and pictures change

Try to eat us

And get trapped

Or injured

Just

This song is just plain eerie...

Gather round o young ones

Listen to the night

Black as death and loud as hell

Only men take fright

Sit around my flame bright

Warm your bones and hear

Virgins die and demons cry

Throw away your fears

Suffer not the children

Sleep tight our fathers

Guard our mothers well

Vampires and werewolves

Erupt your dreams our spell

The evening sabbat song

A Longing to be free

Lost children wander waiting

Barefoot in the sea

Suffer not the children

Suffer not the children

Or be deemed a damned disgrace

Blessed be the wench

The witch delivers in his grace

Gather around my young ones

We can go away

I'll guide you in the night

Follow me

Tonight we'll find a path

The Hell born sinners trail

Beware! None shall stop us

Innocence guards our way

The amulets of kings

Our voodoo games

We know but never tell

Of our infernal names

Suffer not the children

Melee=Built To Last

I've looked for love in stranger places,

but never found someone like you.

Someone whose smile makes me feel I've been holding back,

and now there's nothing I can't do.

'Cause this is real, and this is good.

It warms the inside just like it should,

but most of all it's built to last.

All of our friends saw from the start.

So why didn't we believe it too?

Whoa yeah, now look where we are.

You're in my heart now.

And there's no escaping it for you.

'Cause this is real, and this is good.

It warms the inside just like it should,

but most of all it's built to last.

Walking on the hills that night with those fireworks and candlelight

You and I were made to get love right

'Cause this is real, and this is good.

It warms the inside just like it should,

but most of all it's built to last.

'Cause you are the sun in my universe,

considered the best when we've felt the worst

and most of all it's built to last.

Melee=She's Gonna Find Me Here

Now I don't have to climb the highest mountain

And I don't have to sail the seven seas.

Now I don't have to push myself through desert sands

'Cause she's gonna find me here.

And I don't have to put on all my best clothes

And I don't have to put on a show.

Now I don't have to act like a total stranger

'Cause she's gonna find me here.

When she finally arrives

It will be right on time.

And I'll know that it's real

'Cause the light in her eyes

Will look through and show what a fool I had been

To search far and wide with my heart in my hands.

And I don't have to worry about her

'Cause I know she's fine, now, on her own.

Now can put my mind on things in my own life

'Cause shes gonna find me here.

You know that she's gonna find me here.

And when she finally arrives

It will be right on time.

And I'll know that it's real

'Cause the light in her eyes

Will look through and show what a fool I had been

To search far and wide with my heart in my hands.

Now I don't have to cut up my heart

Into pieces so small

And give them to those who don't care.

Now I don't have to search for one girl

In the depths of my soul

'Cause she's gonna find me

'Cause she's gonna find me

You know she's gonna find me here.

I don't have to search far and wide

'Cause she's gonna find me here

Prodigal Son's Prayer Dierks Bentley

(featuring The Grascals)

Father meet me with your arms wide open

The world's done broken your prodigal son

Down the road I traveled

Everything raveled only came undone

Father lead me down to the river

Wash me in the water 'til I'm whiter than snow

I know I'm not worthy

But tell me there's mercy for the wanderin' soul

I lost my way but now I'm on my knees

If it's not too late won't you tell me please

You gotta place for me

A little grace for me

Father meet me in the cool green valley

In all of your glory when my days are done

Name me as one of your chosen

Heaven's unbroken prodigal son

Father meet me with your arms wide open

Lead me down to the river

Meet me in the cool green valley

Name me one of your chosen

Heaven's unbroken prodigal son

Fruit Cakes by Jimmy Buffet

Religion is in the hands of some crazy-*** people

Television preachers with bad hair and dimples

The gods honest truth is its not that simple

Its the buddhist in you, its the pagan in me

Its the muslim in him, shes catholic aint she?

Its the born again look its the wasp and the jew

Tell me whats goin on, I aint gotta clue

A Pirate Looks at Fourty by Jimmy Buffet

Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call

Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall

Youve seen it all, youve seen it all

Watched the men who rode you switch from sails to steam

And in your belly you hold the treasures few have ever seen

Most of em dream, most of em dream

One Particular Harbour by Jimmy Buffet

And there's that one particular harbour

Sheltered from the wind

Where the children play on the shore each day

And all are safe within

Most mysterious calling harbour

So far but yet so near

I can see the day when my hair's full gray

And I finally disappear

"I am the Highway" by Audioslave

Pearls and swine bereft of me

Long and weary my road has been

I was lost in the cities

Alone in the hills

No sorrow or pity for leaving I feel

I am not your rolling wheels

I am the Highway

I am not your carpet ride

I am the sky

Friends and liars don't wait for me

'Cause I'll get on all by myself

I put millions of miles

Under my heels

And still too close to you

I feel

I am not your rolling wheels

I am the highway

I am not your carpet ride

I am the sky

I am not your blowing wind

I am the lightning

I am not your autumn moon

I am the night, the night..

Yeeah

I am not your rolling wheels

I am the Highway

I am not your carpet ride

I am the sky

But I am not your blowing wind

I am the lightning

I am not your autumn moon

I am the night, the night..

Yeeeh, Yeeeh, Yeeeh, Yeeeh.

Good stuff. :tu:

World So Cold by 12 Stones

It starts with pain

Followed by hate

Fueled by the endless questions

No one can answer

A stain

Covers your heart

Tears you apart just like a sleeping cancer

Now I don't believe men are born to be killers

I don't believe this world can't be saved

How did you get here and when did it start

An innocent child with a thorn in his heart

What kind of world to we live in

Where love is divided by hate

Losing control of our feelings

We all must be dreaming this life away

In a world so cold

Are you sane? Where's the shame

A moment of time passes by

You cannot rewind

Who's blame and where did it start

Is there a cure for your sickness, have you no heart?

Now I don't believe men are born killers

I don't believe the world can't be saved

How did you get here and when did it start

An innocent child with a thorn in his heart

What kind of world do we live in

Where love is divided by hate

Losing control of our feeling

We're dreaming this life away

What kind of world do we live in

Where love is divided by hate

Selling our souls for no reason

We all must be dreaming this life away

In a world so cold

There's a sickness inside you that wants to escape

It's a feeling you get when you can't find your way

So how many times must you fall to your knees

Never, never, never, never, never do this again

It starts with pain followed by hate

Now I don't believe men are born to be killers

And I don't believe this world can't be saved

What kind of world do we live in

Where love is divided by hate

Losing control of our feelings

We're dreaming this life away

What kind of world do we live in

Where love is divided by hate

Selling our souls for no reason

We all must be dreaming this life away

In a world so cold

In a world so cold

Locking Up The Sun by Poets Of The Fall

They're locking up the sun, the light of reason gone,

n' hope has been succesfully undone

The question's burning on, where is it coming from,

no-one seems to know the monster born

It's a bad trip on a sinking ship, when no-one seems responsible

Scapegoat to rock the boat, yeah, we need someone expendable

Volunteers to face the fears, can we be sensible

And find a way to break the fall, find out the cure for all

Is there a hero somewhere, someone who appears and saves the day

Someone who holds out a hand and turns back time

Is there a hero somewhere, someone who will never walk away

Who doesn't turn a blind eye to a crime

They're locking up the sun, they have their chosen one,

you know this time they'll make him play along

They're taking to the arms, the fathers and their sons,

there's nowhere left to run and hide

It's a bad trip on a sinking ship, when no-one seems responsible

Scapegoat to rock the boat, yeah, we need someone expendable

Volunteers to face the fears, can we be sensible

And find a way to break the fall, find out the cure for all

Is there a hero somewhere, someone who appears and saves the day

Someone who holds out a hand and turns back time

Is there a hero somewhere, someone who will never walk away

Who doesn't turn a blind eye to a crime

And in the emptiness, there's a solution,

just look within yourself for absolution
