RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

He left home on a winter's day, 1969

And he hoped to find all the love he had lost in that earlier time.

It's poetry in motion

And now she's making love to me

Only so many tears you can cry

To the one that is broken

And now you can say, your love,

Will never die...

Thomas Dolby is an interesting guy... made more money off pioneering ringtone technology for cell phones than for his music. He's also been involved in the TED series of talks by handling their music for them.

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

Our best friend died a lonely man

In some Palm Springs hotel room

I got the call last Christmas Eve

And they told me the news

I tried all night not to break down and cry

As the tears rolled down my face

I felt so cold and empty

Like a lost soul out of place

I'd "like" this post (if I could).

Interesting fact.

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

Got out of town on a boat, goin' to the southern islands.

Sailing a reach before a followin' sea.

She was makin' for the trades on the outside,

And the downhill run to Papeete Bay.

Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas.

We got eighty feet of waterline.

Nicely making way.

In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you.

But on a midnight watch I realized, why twice you ran away.

Think about,

Think about how many times I have fallen,

Spirits are using me, larger voices callin'.

What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten

I have been around the world,

lookin'... lookin' for that woman, girl,

who knows love can endure

And you know it will.

And you know it will.

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

Now, for ten years we've been on our own and moss grows fat on a Rolling Stone, but...
That's not how it used to be
When the Jester sang for the king and queen in a coat he borrowed from James Dean
In a voice that came from you and me
Oh, and while the King was looking down the Jester stole his thorny crown
The courtroom was adjourned - no verdict was returned
And, while Lenin read a book on Marx the quartet practiced in the park, and...
We sang dirges in the dark the day the music died

We were singing, bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing...
This'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die


From American Pie by Don Mclean (an amazing storyteller in all of his works).

Now I think I know what you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they're not listening still
Perhaps they never will


Don Mclean. 109

Whiskey Lullaby by Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss

She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night

He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said I'll love her till I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
Until the night

She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,
I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky,
But why, why, why can't it be, can't it be mine?

Pearl Jam

You're always seventeen in your hometown.

Cross Canadian Ragweed

d I love to watch you laugh and smile
I love to watch you dream
I love it when you take my hand
Just to let me know you believe in me
I love it that you’re my girl
I love that I’m your man
Now that you’re in my life, baby, I know
Exactly who I am

Wade Bowen

If I’m going down, I’m going down in flames
from this moment on, aint nothin gonna be the same
one thing’s for certain, everybody’s gonna know my name
if I’m going down, I’m going down in flames

Snippets from Fountain of Sorrow - Jackson Browne

You were turning 'round to see who was behind you
And I took your childish laughter by surprise
And at the moment that my camera happened to find you
There was just a trace of sorrow in your eyes

But when you see through love's illusions, there lies the danger
And your perfect lover just looks like a perfect fool
So you go running off in search of a perfect stranger
While the loneliness seems to spring from your life
Like a fountain from a pool

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

O' beautiful, for spacious skies
But now those skies are threatening
They're beating plowshares into swords
For this tired old man that we elected king
Armchair warriors often fail
And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers clean up all details
Since daddy had to lie

But I know a place where we can go
And wash away this sin
We'll sit and watch the clouds toll by
And the tall grass wave in the wind
Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair spill all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence


From the End of the Innocence by Don Henley
