re: Lyrics that hit you



If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'



Bob Dylan - The Times They Are A-Changin'

quote:

"You run and you run, to catch up to the sun but its sinking.
Racing around, to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way, but your older.
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death."
--Time, Pink Floyd





Pink Floyd's lyrics are deep as can be. Most of their albums have an entire plot that each song spells out. Pure artistry.

re: Lyrics that hit you


Pale in the flare light
The scared light cracks and disappears
And leads the scorched ones here
And everywhere no one cares
The fire is spreading
And no one wants to speak about it
Down in the hole
Jesus tries to crack a smile
Beneath another shovel load
Cause I heard it in the wind,
and I saw it in the sky,
and I thought it was the end,
and I thought it was the 4th of July
-Soundgarden, 4th of July.

You could pick a lot of Pink Floyd songs.

Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb have some deep lyrics as well.

When nothing is owed or deserved or expected
And your life doesn't change by the man that's elected
If you're loved by someone, you're never rejected
Decide what to be and go be it

The phone don't ring
And the sun refused to shine
Never thought I'd have to pay so dearly
For what was already mine
For such a long, long time
We made mad love
Shadow love
Random love
And abandoned love
Accidentally like a martyr

re: Lyrics that hit you


I'll be the weeping willow drowning in my tears
You can go swimming when you're here
And I'll be the rainbow after the tears are gone
Wrap you in my colors and keep you warm

otis, that's how strong my love is


I cut my teeth on the stone of a teenage romance
I was the salt of the earth, I was hard, and the last of the independents
And in the breath from my chest I was blowing kerosene
My lips and fingertips were stone, I wore my heart on my jeans
I sang the blues like the dogs left too long in the street
I still sing the blues with the dogs
gaslight, wherefore art thou, elvis

re: Lyrics that hit you


Well I'm finding it harder
to be a gentleman every day
all the manner that I've been taught
have slowly died away
but if I held the door open for you
It would make your day

You think that I care
about me and only me
when every little girl needs help
climbing up a tree
well I know it don't take much
to satisfy me

Maybe it's whatever's in my mind
that's distracting me
but if i could find emotion
to stimulate devotion
well then you'd see

Well I'm finding it hard to say
that I need you twenty times a day
I feel comfortable so baby why
don't you feel the same?
have a doctor come and visit us
and tell us which one is sane

Well I never said I wouldn't
Throw my jacket in the mud for you
but my father gave it to me so
maybe I should carry you
then you said
"You almost dropped me"
so then I did
and I got mud on my shoes

And if my thought-dreams could be seen
They’d probably put my head in a guillotine
But it’s alright, Ma, it’s life, and life only

re: Lyrics that hit you


She warned once about her luck
Put out her match with a tear
She said I'm bored to death and born to,
Look, you want way the hell away from here
He said you don't look that tough to me
Leaned and lit a cigarette
How 'bout you wait and see just what you regret
Until we get what we get

cory branan, survivor blues


My mother was dead by the time i was born
In the black of my eyes the gypsy nurse warned
She could already see my path torn between the sun and the moon
So i walked it and i walked it straight
Until i passed through so many a gate
That not even the blame and the hate of my father could follow

Avett Brothers


Literally too many too list from this band.

One that recently struck after celebrating four years with my s.o.:

Hold on a minute,
It ain't time to leave.
Tell me how you're feeling one more time.

Four long years and I just can't believe
that I'm still yours and you're still mine.

re: Lyrics that hit you


quote:


I got love for my brother, but we can never go nowhere
unless we share with each other. We gotta start makin' changes.
Learn to see me as a brother 'stead of 2 distant strangers.
And that's how it's supposed to be.
How can the Devil take a brother if he's close to me?
I'd love to go back to when we played as kids
but things changed, and that's the way it is
I see no changes. All I see is racist faces.
Misplaced hate makes disgrace to races we under.
I wonder what it takes to make this one better place...
let's erase the wasted.
Take the evil out the people, they'll be acting right.
'Cause both black and white are smokin' crack tonight.
And only time we chill is when we kill each other.
It takes skill to be real, time to heal each other.
And although it seems heaven sent,
we ain't ready to see a black President, uhh.
It ain't a secret don't conceal the fact...
the penitentiary's packed, and it's filled with blacks.
But some things will never change.
Try to show another way, but they stayin' in the dope game.
Now tell me what's a mother to do?
Bein' real don't appeal to the brother in you.
You gotta operate the easy way.
"I made a G today" But you made it in a sleazy way.
Sellin' crack to the kids. "I gotta get paid,"
Well hey, well that's the way it is.

re: Lyrics that hit you


One of my all time favorite lyrics to any song:

quote:

I've got a little black book with my poems in.
Got a bag with a toothbrush and a comb in.
When I'm a good dog, they sometimes throw me a bone in.

I got elastic bands keepin my shoes on.
Got those swollen hand blues.
I got thirteen channels of shite on the T.V. to choose from.
I've got electric light.
And I've got second sight.
I got amazing powers of observation.
And that is how I know
When I try to get through
On the telephone to you
There'll be nobody home.

I've got the obligatory Hendrix perm.
And the inevitable pinhole burns
All down the front of my favorite satin shirt.
I've got nicotine stains on my fingers.
I've got a silver spoon on a chain.
I've got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains.

I've got wild staring eyes.
And I've got a strong urge to fly.
But I got nowhere to fly to.
Ooooh, babe when I pick up the phone

"Surprise, surprise, surprise..."
There's still nobody home.

I've got a pair of Gohills boots
But I got fading roots.



RHCP has some great lyrics as well:

quote:

My mouth fell open
Hoping that the truth
Would not be true
Refuse the news

I'm feeling sick now
What the frick am I
Supposed to do
Just lose and lose

First time I saw you
You were sitting
Backstage in a dress
A perfect mess

You never knew this
But I wanted badly for you to
Requite my love

Left on the floor
Leaving your body
When highs are the lows
And lows are the way
So hard to stay
Guess now you know
I love you so

I liked your whiskers
And I liked the
Dimple in your chin
Your pale blue eyes

You painted pictures
Cause the one
Who hurts
Can give so much
You gave me such

quote:

I'm an ocean in your bedroom
Make you feel warm
Make you wanna re-assume
Now, we know it all for sure

I'm a dance hall
Dirty break beat
Make the snow fall
Up from underneath your feet

Not alone, I'll be there
Tell me when you wanna go

I'm a meth lab, first rehab
Take it all off
And step inside the running cab
There's a love that knows the way

I'm the rainbow
In your jail cell
All the memories of
Everything you've ever smelled

Not alone, I'll be there
Tell me when you want to go

Sideways falling, more will be revealed my friend
Don't forget me, I can't hide it
Come again, get me excited

I'm an inbred and a pothead
Two legs that you spread
Inside the tool shed
Now, we know it all for sure

I could show you
To the free field
Overcome and more
Will always be revealed

Not alone, I'll be there
Tell me when you wanna go

Sideways falling, more will be revealed my friend
Don't forget me, I can't hide it)
Come again, get me excited

I'm the bloodstain
On your shirt sleeve
Coming down and more are coming to believe
Now, we know it all for sure

Make the hair stand
Up on your arm
Teach you how to dance
Inside the funny farm

Not alone, I'll be there
Tell me when you wanna go

I'll be there but
Tell me when you wanna go
Come again and
Tell me when you wanna go

More will be revealed my friend

re: Lyrics that hit you


If I could throw this
Lifeless lifeline to the wind
I'd leave this heart of clay
See you walk, walk away
Into the night
Through the rain
Into the half-light
Through the flame
If I could through myself
Set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away
See you break, break away
Into the light
And to the day

Bad, u2
