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.
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...
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...
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 ..........
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...
I'm dreamin' how you would be dreamin' and hoping you over
I give what you give and I never back out of decisions
I feel what you feel and I'm hoping and prayin' and willing
I'm nervous you nervous you drinkin' I'm drinkin' we rockin'
I'm talkin' you talkin' I'm in it...
Is there anybody in there
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home
Come on now
I hear you're feeling down
I can ease your pain
And get you on your feet again
I'll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts
If you walk away, I'll walk away
First tell me which road you will take
I don't want to risk our paths crossing someday
So you walk that way, I'll walk this way
And the future hangs over our heads
And it moves with each current event
'til it falls all around like a cold, steady...
Drawing me in and you kicking me out?
Got my head spinning, no kidding
I can't pin you down
What's going on in that beautiful mind?
I'm on your magical mystery ride
And I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me
But I'll be alright
My head's underwater
But I'm breathing fine...
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
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...
"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...
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...
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...
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...
when the rest of me is down
You, you enchant me even when you're not around
If there are boundaries, I will try to knock them down
I’m latching on, babe, now I know what I have found
I feel we're close enough
Could lock in your love
I feel we’re close enough
Could I lock...
I've feared has come to life
And whatsoever I've fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded
Now I'm doing time
Now I'm doing time
'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days
Whomsoever I've cured, I've sickened now...
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...
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...
thinks what I think,
Nobody dreams when they blink
Think things on the brink of blasphemy
I'm my own shrink
Think things are after me, my catastrophe
At my kitchen sink, you don't know what that means
Because a kitchen sink to you
Is not a kitchen sink to me, ok friend...
make you sad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
...always look on the bright side
Always look on the light side
kind of love
That will last always
I need somebody uplifting
To take me away
I want a lover who knows me
Who understands how I feel inside
Someone to comfort and hold me
Through the long lonely nights
'Till the dawn
Why don't you take me away
Dreamlover come rescue...
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...
See I smoke when I drank
I'm heavy weight like a tank
Burn more green than forest fires
Barney chills in my drank
I'm not mentally stable
See I'm lyrically nuclear
I explode on a track

I was an angel,
Living in the garden of evil,
Screwed up, scared, doing anything that I needed,
Shining like a fiery beacon.
You got that medicine I need,
Fame, liquor, love, give it to me slowly.
Put your hands on my waist, do it softly,
Me and God, we dont get along, so now I...
shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack and Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
We'll have Halloween on Christmas
And in the night we'll wish this never ends
We'll wish this never ends.
Ba ba da da
Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got (ba ba da da)
Not much of a girlfriend
I never seem to get a lot (ba ba da da, ba ba da da)
It's been some time since we last spoke
This is gonna sound like a bad joke
But momma I fell in love again
though I missed the chance for this,
I confess that I can’t wait,
Until it’s gone
No I mean this every single day
So go if you can’t burn inside
‘Cause the world don’t need
Another hopeless cause
Though it makes me who I am
‘Cause it makes me who I am
And you made me...
she have to go
So young I just don't know why
Things happen half the time
Without reason without rhyme
Lovely, sweet young woman
Daughter, wife and mother
Makes no sense to me
I just have to believe
She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and...
for half an hour
We'll speak of what a waste I am
And how we missed your beat again
I swear we need to find some comfort in this run-down place
To bridge the gap of this concious state that we live in
And I'm short on time
How come you try
To place us all
And fit the...
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...
That love was meant for beauty queens👩
And high school girls with clear skin smiles😄
Who married young and then retired.
The valentines I never knew💏
The Friday nights charades of youth
We're spent on on more beautiful...
For those of us who knew the pain...
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...
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...
I stare at my reflection in the mirror:
"Why am I doing this to myself?"
Losing my mind on a tiny error,
I nearly left the real me on the shelf.
No, no, no, no, no...
Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars!
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be...
if I could touch your body oh not everybodys got a body like you.
But I gotta think twice bfore I give myheart away, and I know all the games you play because I play them too
Oh but I need some time off of THAT EMOTION,time to pick my heart off of the floor, oh well when love...
And you could see the melody
That's been calling out your wrongs
And this never will be right with me
And now you're trying to desperately
But i'm tongue tied and terrified of what i'll say
But i never told you everything
I'm losing hope and fading dreams
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
