"Parachutes" as written by and Stone Gossard Eddie Vedder....
Why deny all the troubles when combined
With the missing links it don't feel like home now

That your gone all the troubles suddenly explained infinitum
You're always wishing and never here at home

You all the dreams we shared and
Lights we turned on
But the house is getting dark

And I don't want to know your past
But together share the dawn
And I won't need nothing else
Cause when we're dead
We would've had it all and died

I would've fallen from the sky til you
Parachutes have opened now

Heaven knows if there's a ceiling
Come so low with the kneeling
Please know that I got all the friends I'm needing
Before my light go out
As the doors are closing now

And far away will be my home
And to grasp this, I don't know
But I don't need
Further back and forth, a wave will break on me today

And love
Wish the world could glow again with love
One can't see to have enough

And war
Break the sky and tell me what it's for
I'll travel there on my own

And love
What a different life
Had I not found this love with you

    General CommentLOL, no I haven't heard the songs yet,...

    but there was a leak and some guys on the red mosquito forum were discussing the songs, and one of them decided to start a thread of "the leaked lyrics" or something,...

    These are just the finished products of that thread ;)

    And I thought it'd be one hell of an idea to post up the lyrics before the album came out to discuss them,...

    I've heard that this song has been compared to sounding like the beatles,.. Almost like it's a Pearl Jam sort of tribute to them,...

    but yeah I haven't heard any of the leaked songs,..
    I can wait
    "not me, not now, what smart kids say to leaks:)"

    General Commenti've heard this song, its quite different from the others on the album. Very good song. slowish paced and the words are coherent. Eddies voice is very intresting, the tune isn't "set" it changes on every few words. Amazing song

    General Commentthis song, lyrically, reminds me of the film 'Big Fish'. It could have replaced 'Man of the Hour' as PJ's song for that soundtrack.

    I believe it to be a dying person's last words to the love of their life. Very romantic song.

    I think its " I don't wanna know your plans" not "past".
