Yep, I am rocking the house this morning people!
Tall, Dark Handsome Stranger lyrics
Performed by HEART
(H. Knight/A. Hammond)
I'm so tired of these men trying to impress me with nothing
The same old routine and the smooth fancy talking
Now I know and...
Everybody sees right through
There's no escaping what you do
Do to me, do to me
I swear that you're just sinking in
Like a stain that's on my skin
I try to fight but I won't win
Anyhow, it's too late for me now cos'
Your love's like ultraviolet
I can feel it burn...
This song came out just after my grandfather died and everything is so much like his last 2 weeks .I never left him and he was so bad he tried too talk but couldn't ..when he died a big piece of me went with him.
For you Grandad...we never really left each other did we
And I'd give up forever to touch you cause I know that you feel me somehow Youre the closest to heaven that I'll ever be and I dont wanna go home right now And all I can taste is this moment and all I can breathe is your life and sooner or later its over I just...
I love love love this song. It's gotten me through so much. Sometimes I just sit and listen to it on replay, over and over and over again. I have the lyrics memorized, and I sing along and harmonize with them. I really really love this song. It's beautiful. I imagine laying next...
As the clouds divide
I sit and wonder
When our time will come
From the Northern Lights
To the Southern Cross
Between the earth and
The Milky Way
I must chart my course
As I go back and forth
And I wonder if it ever will change
Maybe not so far away
"Do you care,
about all the little things,
or anything at all?"
"I wanna feel all the chemicals inside."
"Just to know I'm alive."
"Don't tell me if I'm dying,
cause I don't wanna know."
"If I can't see the sun,
then maybe I should go."
"Do you believe in the day that you...
Like headlights in the rain
Drifting back again
Somewhere out there gathered in the dust
Sometimes I can't remember that was us
The stars divide
Our worlds collide
Surrounded like the air
You were with my everywhere
Somewhere out there lying in the...
everything that i'm dreaming
I seem to be stuck
Never seem to know what i believe in
Brother always told me, stay out of trouble
Now i'm in too deep
Like living in a bubble
I can feel everything going in and out of conscience
Making me doubt myself
My dreams are all nonsense...
water against the rocks
Looking back, I can't see.
The boats leaving, out on me
No shoes, bare foot.
No make-up, the new look
Where's my home, where you at?
Find my husband, feed my cat
It's getting cold, people leave
No more love, we can achieve
Hey, hey, hey, someone...
it, rock with it,
When we gonna stop with it,
Lyrics that mean nothing,
we were gifted with thought,
Is it time to move our feet to an introspective beat,
It ain't the speakers that bump hearts, it's our hearts that make the beat.
we both know we've been here before
we both know what can happen
Hold on my heart
cos I'm looking over your shoulder
ooh please don't rush in this time
don't show her how you feel
Hold on my heart
throw me a lifeline
I'll keep a place for you
somewhere deep inside...
She'd a bruise so black they watched it fade through the full spectrum of colors.
They kept it like a pet; a private joke they told no others.
And how the tissue repaired, and how it turned to yellow
And she found it disgusting, 'cause it didn't match her clothing.
He said "that...
(definitely not out)
Yeah, why did you call me again?
I bet I bet we don't make it (I bet we don't make it)
Cause I never take advice from my (friends)
Friends in very high places
They're only making bets to themselves,
selves they're very, very selfish,
We'll keep you in mind...
Sometimes, I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
And I can't help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear
Take the wheel and steer
It's driven me before
And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal
But lately I am beginning to find that I
Should be the one...
I have nothing left to give
I have found the perfect end
You were made to make it hurt
Disappear into the dirt
Carry me to heaven's arms
Light the way and let me go
Take the time to take my breath
I will end where I began
And I will find the enemy within
Cause I can feel it...
I open my lungs dear
I sing this song at funerals... no rush.
These lyrics heard a thousand times, just plush.
A baby boy you've held so tightly,
This pain it visits almost nightly
Missing hotel beds, I feel your whole touch.
I will await dear, a patience of eternity, my crush...
lies in the books
To make a citizen out of you
Because they sleep with a gun
And keep an eye on you, son
So they can watch all the things you do
Because the drugs never work
They're gonna give you a smirk
'Cause they got methods of keeping you clean
They're gonna rip up your...
Turn down the lights, turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me, tell me no lies
Just hold me close, don't patronize - don't patronize me
Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
something, I'm giving up on you
I'll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you
And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all
And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to...
you’re falling apart
I might have been a kidder, but our love was from the stars
Can see I’m in trouble, but I know this is for real
My love is always different, I’m still playing the field
You look tragic when you call me all the time
You make me feel like I’m caught...
so wheres my kids at?
These muthafuckas hatin', soundin' funnier than Sinbad
I'm ill as the pills that they give you when you collapse
This, that, the other, kiss your mother with that mouth?
We the ******** that she warned you about
My favorite part from "Party on fifth ave...
like my dreams are a tent and I'm turning inside out
the pattern made of happier times becomes plain and boring...again
just like paper rots and then turns yellow
all my words freeze up inside this machine.
knock knock knock
embracing a silent space...
But listen pretty lady
You don't have to be alone
So baby don't cut
Baby don't cut
You can do anything
Just promise baby you won't cut
I know your heart is hurting
You feel the world has end
You may just feel that blade
Your holding is your only friend
But baby don't...
And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't wanna go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it's over
I just don...
Time, is going by, so much faster than I,
And I'm starting to regret not spending all of it with you.
Now I'm, wondering why, I've kept this bottled inside,
So I'm starting to regret not telling all of this to you.
So if I haven't yet, I've gotta let you know...
I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone
I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
If time is what you needed
You're not mine
I rather not believe you're fine
Rather think you're up all night
You knew me when you met me
Let's not fight
I'm just a little feisty
Maybe, maybe I would lose my mind
I don't wanna
Let you go away
The promise that shouldn’t have been made
Will try to steal our future today, too
Even if I gain the things I wanted
I wonder why I can’t be good at laughing honestly
The overflowing tears aren’t of weakness or regret
They’re pieces that pain produced
No matter in what...
of the bottle is my only friend
I think I'll slit my wrists again and I'm
Gone, gone, gone, gone
My legs are dangling off the edge
A stomach full of pills didn't work again
I'll put a bullet in my head and I'm
Gone, gone, gone, gone
Gone too far yea I'm gone...
One of the best songs I have ever heard. Alice in Chains is true grunge, but the fact that they can make such a beautiful song and masterfully convey in a short amount of words the feeling of utter lonely desperation is truly amazing. I think many of us can relate.
True story, he was in the middle of divorcing his wife. He was on stage when these lyrics came to him. He ask his band to start playing slow. The words just came to him. Afterward he broke down and cried on stage. That's real music ..........
I was at Atlanta Fest this past year with my church and I had an amazing experience with this song. Imagine a hyped up crowd getting into the moment seeing one of their favorite artists on stage. Then all of a sudden he tells the crowd that he's not up there for their adoration...
I can stay awake for days
If that's what you want
Be your number one
I can fake a smile
I can force a laugh
I can dance and play the part
If that's what you ask
Give you all I am
I can do it
I can do it
I can do it
But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
