|The Cowboy Junkies – Anniversary Song Lyrics||13 years ago|
Reminds me of a poem by Saul Williams
I drew him
like a bath
then sat and soaked
watching the bubbles
as a ring
around the tub
gave us the age
Happy Anniversary, Babe
I wear your ring
|Bob Dylan – Idiot Wind Lyrics||13 years ago|
|The masochist in me has listened to this song about 2000 times this past year. It feels like he is puncturing my heart and I feel searing pain. And I am addicted to it. I LOVE THIS SONG.|
|The Proclaimers – I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) Lyrics||13 years ago|
I once walked 500 miles and everything else these guys are singing about
and I'd do it again in a heartbeat
|The Rolling Stones – Shine A Light Lyrics||13 years ago|
It's the nicest thing you can say to someone.
"Make every song your favourite tune!"
|Kate Bush – Running Up That Hill Lyrics||13 years ago|
A race to the top with no winners
but still did you hear an
I love you?
|The Police – Wrapped Around Your Finger Lyrics||13 years ago|
|You know I am|
|Coldplay – Viva la Vida Lyrics||13 years ago|
|Something about sand castles and what doesn't kill you makes you stronger?|
|Lucinda Williams – Bus To Baton Rouge Lyrics||13 years ago|
|I once dreamed of moving to Paris with an old BF. When I told him about it he replied, "Paris is in flames, baby". So I picked myself up and dusted myself off and decided, well, why don't we then simply move to french speaking cajun country? I thought of New Orleans but remembered that it was destroyed by that wicked rain "Hurricane Kat". And didn't Barbara (not Kate) Bush say that everyone is better off because of it? What a crazy old bat. Anyway, I then thought that he and I could take the bus to Baton Rouge. I had such a lovely dream of this life. It was like "heaven on earth" as they say. What happened to that dream? SAME EXACT thing as the person above me. Only I escaped at the last second with my scorched, shredded, spent NUB of a soul. I've decided no more dreaming in French. I'm gonna Viva La Vida.|
|Blitzen Trapper – Furr Lyrics||13 years ago|
This song reminds me of a poem by one of my favorite poets, Saul Williams.
I have faith
in who you are becoming
in who you are
you are the wolf
having run through a stream (or a storm)
to stand on a mountain peak
|Grateful Dead – China Doll Lyrics||13 years ago|
|Listened to Reckoning/For The Faithful the other day and this song knocked the wind outta me. It means a lot to me.|
|Queen – Don't Try Suicide Lyrics||13 years ago|
|I don't know if I know anyone who has ever tried to commit suicide. It makes me sad that someone would feel so hopeless about life. Tomorrow is a new day. If you are someone who has tried suicide or feels suicidal, you need to remember that you have loads of people who love you and give a damn. And that bit about not getting into heaven is SUCH a crock of shit.|
|Wilco – Impossible Germany Lyrics||13 years ago|
|I agree with you|
|Bon Iver – Skinny Love Lyrics||13 years ago|
Just last a year
Pour a little salt we were never here
Those lines were written for me
|Van Morrison – Listen To The Lion Lyrics||13 years ago|
The other day I was listening to "Too Late To Stop Now" and this song. All this SOUL business reminded me of my favorite poem by Walt Whitman. "A Noiseless Patient Spider". I'm not going to type it out because I recently lost an eye in a tragic accident. Check it out yourselves because it is beautiful.
Love this song!
|Golden Earring – Radar Love Lyrics||13 years ago|
We've got a wave in the air,
We've got a line in the sky
Maybe they have a unique way of expressing their love.
|The Who – Love, Reign O'er Me Lyrics||13 years ago|
|I listen to this song every single day.|
|My Morning Jacket – The Way That He Sings Lyrics||13 years ago|
My appreciation of music has always been visceral. In the past, I've been able to listen to a song once and have a good grasp on the lyrics and a basic understanding of the meaning. Well, this year I actually tried to dissect a song or two. I learned that sometimes there really is a much deeper meaning behind certain songs than I had realized. I grew so much from stepping out of my comfort zone into unknown territory. Still, I'm no intellectual. This song describes how I am "hard-wired".
It's just the way that he sings,
not the words that he says, or the band,
I'm in love with this soul, it's a meaning that I understand.
Sometimes you just can't explain WHY you have a connection to the music. It's a beautiful mystery.
