Best (or great) Song Lyrics....


Recommended Posts

Well, won't you lend your lungs to me?
Mine are collapsing
Plant my feet and bitterly breathe
Up the time that's passing.
Breath I'll take and breath I'll give
Pray the day ain't poison
Stand among the ones that live
In lonely indecision.

Fingers walk the darkness down
Mind is on the midnight
Gather up the gold you've found
You fool, it's only moonlight.
If you try to take it home
Your hands will turn to butter
You better leave this dream alone
Try to find another.

Salvation sat and crossed herself
Called the devil partner
Wisdom burned upon a shelf
Who'll kill the raging cancer
Seal the river at it's mouth
Take the water prisoner
Fill the sky…

This is my favorite lyric of all time:

And if California slides into the ocean
Like the mystics and statistics say it will
I predict this motel will be standing until I pay my bill

Don't the sun look angry through the trees
Don't the trees look like crucified thieves
Don't you feel like Desperados under the eaves
Heaven help the one who leaves

Put this song in my top 5.

Magic Power - Triumph

Something's at the edge of your mind
You don't know what it is
Something you were hoping to find 
But you're not sure what it is
Then you hear the music 
And it all comes crystal clear
The music does the talking
Says the things you want to hear


[Chorus]

I'm young, I'm wild and I'm free
I've got the magic power of the music in me

I love how the chorus changes slightly the next time it comes up, after a verse about a girl listening to the radio waiting for a song (who does that anymore! ;) )

She's young now, she's wild now, she wants to be free
She gets the magic power of the music from me

 

saw Rik Emmett in concert in Triumph and 2 man acoustic 8 times. Couldn't hit those crazy high notes in the last years, but can still bring it on guitar

You get the car, I'll get the night off
You'll get the chance to take the world apart
And figure out how it works
Don't let me know what you find out

I need a car, you need a guide, who needs a map?
If I don't die or worse, I'm gonna need a nap
At best I'll be asleep when you get back

I wanna see it when you find out what comets, stars, and moons are all about
I wanna see their faces turn to backs of heads and slowly get smaller
I wanna see it now
I wanna see it now

I want specifics on the general idea
I wanna think what I should know
I want you to do me what to show

I wanna see the movies of my dreams
I wanna see the movies of my dreams
I wanna see the movies of my dreams
I wanna see the movies of my dreams

I wanna see it when you get stoned on a cloudy breezy desert afternoon
I wanna see it untame itself and break its owner
I wanna see it now
I wanna see it now

This is what I vow;
He shall have my heart to keep,
Sweetly will we stir and sleep,
All the years, as now.
Swift the measured sands may run;
Love like this is never done;
He and I are welded one:
This is what I vow.

This is what I pray:
Keep him by me tenderly;
Keep him sweet in pride of me,
Ever and a day;
Keep me from the old distress;
Let me, for our happiness,
Be the one to love the less:
This is what I pray.

This is what I know:
Lovers' oaths are thin as rain;
Love's a harbinger of pain-
Would it were not so!
Ever is my heart a-thirst,
Ever is my love accurst;
He is neither last nor first:
This is what I know.

I think we could add a number of Townes Van Zandt songs to this thread.

Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care
Leave but don't leave me
Look around and choose your own ground

For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He's making a list
He's checking it twice
He's gonna find out who's naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you're sleeping
And he knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

Getadelt wird, wer Schmerzen kennt
Vom Feuer, das die Haut verbrennt
Ich werfe ein Licht
In mein Gesicht
Mein heißer Schrei
Feuer frei

Bang bang
Bang bang

Geadelt ist, wer Schmerzen kennt
Vom Feuer, das in Lust verbrennt
Ein Funkenstoß
In ihren Schoß
Ein heißer Schrei
Feuer frei

Bang bang
Bang bang

Feuer frei

Bang bang
Bang bang
Feuer frei
