"Gossamer" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
you will fly away again
you will
straight into the heart of the sun
straight into the heart of everyone
you will break my heart against
my will
I will be dead out of a gun
I will be dead out of everyone

fly, fly away when you say you won't
you follow when you swear you just don't
I can't rule you no more

we'll buy you another sun
we'll buy you another sun to love
we'll buy you another sun

we'll buy you another sun
go find you another sun to gun down
go find you
another sun

you don't want me anymore
you don't love me anymore
no more

(uli john roth solo)

you will fly away again you will
you will fly away again you will
bleed into the heart of the sun
you will break my heart against my will
you will break my heart against my will
love bleeding out of your gun

    General CommentThis performance on If All Goes Wrong had me completely floored. My favorite band for quite a few years now, and I knew Corgan's talent was incredible, but I didnt realize he was God of music.

    General CommentAmazing song. I think it's about someone trying to reason with a former lover.

    General CommentHere are the complete lyrics:

    You will fly away again, you will
    Straight into the heart of the sun
    Straight into the heart of everyone

    You will break my heart against my will
    I'll be dead of your gun
    I'll be dead of everyone

    You fly away when you say that you won't
    You laugh alone when you swear you just don't
    I can't rule you no more

    Go buy you another son
    Go find you another son to love
    Go buy you another son

    Go find you another son
    Go buy you another son to gun down
    Go find you another son

    You don't want me anymore
    You don't need me anymore
    No more

    You will fly away again, you will
    You will fly away again, you will
    Straight into the hearts of the sun
    You will break my heart against my will
    You will break my heart against my will
    I'll be dead of your gun

    Fifty two crows in a field of love
    I've got fifty two crows in the field of love
    Well, one crow turns to the other crow and says
    I know we got bad luck, but look at him flying over there
    Rather be a crow

    Fifty two ladies in a field of love
    Fifty two maidens in a field of love
    Well, one girl turns to the other girl and says
    Hey, have you seen my love anywhere
    It's been so long since he was home
    Boo-hoo

    Two white horses unloved
    Two white horses unbound
    Come take me to my burying grounds
    We're going to take my grave with silver spades
    And everyone will wave
    And we'll all pretend we're on TV
    All my dreams are on TV
    All my dreams are on TV
    The constitution will not be televised
    And everybody sleep well

    We ain't going anywhere
    We ain't going anywhere
    We ain't going anywhere
    We ain't going anywhere
    I don't even, even care
    We ain't going anywhere
    I don't even, even care
    We ain't going anywhere anymore

    I don't wanna, wanna die
    I don't wanna, wanna die
    I don't wanna, wanna die
    I don't wanna, wanna die
    I don't wanna, wanna die
    I don't wanna, wanna die
    I don't wanna, wanna die
    I don't wanna, wanna die ever again

    The scary part
    Again, this is the scary part
    Scary part

    General Commentthere still isnt a proper recording out there and so the lyrics are in flux. (personally, i think "Gossamer" is the best song of the last decade."

    quick example-i have heard:
    we'll buy you another sun
    we'll buy you another sun to love
    we'll buy you another sun

    as:
    Go find you another son
    Go buy you another son to gun down
    Go find you another son

    and also as:
    Go find you another son
    Go buy you another son to kill
    Go find you another son
