Meat Loaf – Martha Lyrics 17 years ago
this is originally by Tom Waits...
Meat Loaf does a great cover of it but still... how could it beat the original? Tom Waits is one of the greatest artists the world will ever know...
the lyrics are quite obvious...
one of the saddest songs ever written

Nirvana – Pennyroyal Tea Lyrics 17 years ago
It is quite strange and sad that no one has mentioned Leonard Cohen besides congergation...
he started out a poet (and still is)... then put out two novels (Beautiful Losers is often considered one of the greatest books from Canada) and started a music career in the late 60's until well... hes still around...
hes often considered one of the greatest song writers along with Dylan...
originally he did folk music and later changed quite a bit...
his work is considered both extremely depressing and very romantic
now go and buy everything the man has done because he is amazing

I'm not exactly sure what the line in this song is supposed to mean because i don't know much about Nirvana or Kurt (i've always found the group dreadfully overrated)... but its probably not a good thing as Leonards known for being quite the depressing man

To make bright and clear your path
And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
And guide you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

And I believe in Love
And I know that you do too
And I believe in some kind of path
That we can walk down, me and you
So keep your candlew burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she will keep returning
Always and evermore

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms
