    What are your favourite SONG LYRICS?

    Many of us simply LOVE MUSIC, and the words to the songs that we love,....so in this thread I would like you all to share with us the lyrics of the songs you love most dearly.

    If you are presenting any song lyrics in this thread, can you also state,

    The artist/band name, and a youtube link to the music.


    I will get the ball rolling with one of my very favourite songs from the 1971 album by David Bowie called 'Hunky Dory'...called:

    Quicksand



    I'm closer to the Golden Dawn
    Immersed in Crowley's uniform
    Of imagery
    I'm living in a silent film
    Portraying Himmler's sacred realm
    Of dream reality
    I'm frightened by the total goal
    Drawing to the ragged hole
    And I ain't got the power anymore
    No, I ain't got the power anymore

    I'm the twisted name on Garbo's eyes
    Living proof of Churchill's lies, I'm destiny
    I'm torn between the light and dark
    Where others see their targets, divine symmetry

    Should I kiss the viper's fang?
    Or herald loud the death of Man
    I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought
    And I ain't got the power anymore

    Don't believe in yourself, don't deceive with belief
    Knowledge comes with death's release
    Aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah

    I'm not a prophet or a stone-age man
    Just a mortal with the potential of a superman
    I'm living on

    I'm tethered to the logic of Homo Sapien
    Can't take my eyes from the great salvation
    Of bullshit faith

    If I don't explain what you ought to know
    You can tell me all about it or the next Bardo

    I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought
    And I ain't got the power anymore

    Don't believe in yourself, don't deceive with belief
    Knowledge comes with death's release
    Aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah

    Don't believe in yourself, don't deceive with belief
    Knowledge comes with death's release
    Aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah

    'It can all start from a seed'

    Built to Last by the Grateful Dead https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8s6MCvMONVM

    There are times when you can beckon,
    There are times when you must call.
    You can take a lot of reckoning,
    But you can't take it all.

    There are times when I can help you out,
    And times when you must fall.
    There are times when you must live in doubt
    And I can't help at all.

    Three blue stars rise on the hill
    Sing no more now just be still
    All these trials soon be past
    Look for something built to last

    A wind held by the collar,
    Yes, a cloud held by the breeze
    You can walk on coals of fire
    But sometimes you must freeze

    There are times when you offend me
    And I do the same to you
    If we can't or won't forget it
    I guess we could be through

    One blue star sets on the hill
    Call it back you never will
    One more star sinks in the past
    Show me something built to last

    Built to last till time itself falls tumbling from the wall
    Built to last till sunshine fails and darkness moves on all
    Built to last while years roll past like cloudscapes in the sky
    Show me something built to last or something built to try

    There are times when you get hit upon
    Try hard but you can't give
    Other times you'd gladly part
    With what you need to live

    Don't waste your breath to save your face
    When you have done your best
    And even more is asked of you
    Fate will decide the rest

    All the stars are gone but one
    Morning breaks here comes the sun
    Cross the sky now sinking fast
    Show me something built to last

      Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
      telling myself it's not as hard, hard, as it seems...

      Going to California.
      The Fourth Album.
      Led Zeppelin.

      The song is reportedly about Canadian singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell.
      "So we're just done with phrasing, right, that's not a thing anymore?."

      "He's like Jesus, just dumber and fatter, and holds the Bible upside down".

        Pink Floyd - A Pillow of Winds

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uThZ1uuLLWM

        A cloud of eiderdown draws around me
        Softening the sound
        Sleepy time when I lie
        With my love by my side
        And she's breathing low
        And a candle dies

        When night comes down, you lock the door
        The book falls to the floor
        As darkness falls and waves roll by
        The seasons change
        The wind is warm

        Now wakes the owl, now sleeps the swan
        Behold a dream, the dream is gone
        Green fields, a cold rain is falling
        In a golden dawn

        And deep beneath the ground
        The early morning sounds and I go down
        Sleepy time when I lie
        With my love by my side
        And she's breathing low
        And I rise like a bird
        In the haze when the first rays touch the sky
        And the night winds die
        Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
        Removes the colours from our sight,
        Red is gray and yellow white,
        But we decide which is right . . .

        And which is an illusion

          Luba is a Canadian musician, singer, songwriter and recording artist from Ukrainian descent.

          Her voice is amazing compared to what is out there today.

          Everytime I See Your Picture

          by Luba

          In my mind
          I've got it all figured out
          But the head
          Does not always rule the heart
          And I try to place him
          Out of body and soul
          Just when I thought Id made it
          His images start taking their toll
          On me
          I feel his memory haunting me
          Time and Again
          I feel weak because

          Every time I see your picture I cry
          And I learn to get over you
          One more time because
          Every time I see your picture I cry
          Oh I cry

          There you rest inside the walls
          Of a flame
          Hurts so bad
          I can almost feel your eyes
          Calling out my name and so
          Out of body and soul
          You're everywhere I go
          Illusion or reality I don't know
          I feel your memory haunting me
          Time and again
          I feel weak because

          Every time I see your picture I cry
          And I learn to get over you
          One more time because
          Every time I see your picture I cry
          Oh I cry

                I'm a little twisted...so I'll let this Brit tell you all about it...

                Lyric Vid...

                [YOUTUBEIF]otjtfNQvoIo[/YOUTUBEIF]

                *edit*

                Look at me I'm chasing
                After dreams left in the storm
                What I am is all
                That really matters now
                That lies are gone -
                That lies are gone,
                All the lies are gone,
                The lies are gone.

                Tempting fate and losing
                Friends along the way I loved
                No regrets
                I'm standing
                With a needle in my heart -
                Needle in my heart,
                Needle in my heart,
                Needle in my heart.

                You'll never know
                My life means everything
                Still I scream because
                There's nothing left to do until the end.

                The world goes on
                With all that I've become
                And still I scream inside
                For all the pain I've taken hasn't changed.

                Nothing's changed at all
                The truth is like a chain
                Heaven's calling me
                The place that I belong
                Killing pain -
                Killing pain.

                Close my eyes a million faces
                Get inside my mind.
                Take a breath and fill my troubled
                Soul with all mankind.
                Killing pain -
                Killing pain,
                I'm killing pain,
                Killing pain.

                The world goes on
                With all that I've become.
                And still I scream inside
                For all the pain I've taken hasn't changed...

                The man in black
                I'm coming back to spew my evil hate.
                My crown of horns and bloody thorns
                I'll dig up what you fear.

                I am the shape that's in your room that watches over you.
                I am the needle in your heart - your disillusioned God.

                I am God, I am fate, I am all the sins you make, yeah - hate.
                I am black, I am white, I am the blood upon the knife, yeah - hate.

                Since time began I made a vow to drag you underground;
                To steal your soul of purity and watch you waste away.

                I am pure, I am right, I'm the God that makes you fight, yeah - hate.
                I am life, I am death, I will steal your final breath, yeah - hate.

                I prey upon your broken dreams your weakness gives me strength.
                I'm laughing at your silent screams I'll crush you with my hate.

                You take it all
                And face the fear that's here
                Until the Silence Screams
                it leaves you with no choice to carry on.

                You'll never fall
                When all is said and done
                The only Scream is here
                The journey never ends - it's just begun...

                The lies that never learned
                The needles in my heart
                And things will never change
                So everytime I scream I'm killing pain.
                Climb Aboard !!

                    The Last Resort

                    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebPrketcQDA

                    "The Last Resort"

                    She came from Providence,
                    the one in Rhode Island
                    Where the old world shadows hang
                    heavy in the air
                    She packed her hopes and dreams
                    like a refugee
                    Just as her father came across the sea

                    She heard about a place people were smilin'
                    They spoke about the red man's way,
                    how they loved the land
                    And they came from everywhere
                    to the Great Divide
                    Seeking a place to stand
                    or a place to hide

                    Down in the crowded bars,
                    out for a good time,
                    Can't wait to tell you all,
                    what it's like up there
                    And they called it paradise
                    I don't know why
                    Somebody laid the mountains low
                    while the town got high

                    Then the chilly winds blew down
                    Across the desert
                    through the canyons of the coast,
                    to the Malibu
                    Where the pretty people play,
                    hungry for power
                    to light their neon way
                    give them things to do

                    Some rich men came and raped the land,
                    Nobody caught 'em
                    Put up a bunch of ugly boxes,
                    and Jesus people bought 'em
                    'nd they called it paradise
                    The place to be
                    They watched the hazy sun, sinking in the sea

                    You can leave it all behind and sail to Lahaina
                    just like the missionaries did, so many years ago
                    They even brought a neon sign: "Jesus is coming"
                    Brought the white man's burden down
                    Brought the white man's reign

                    Who will provide the grand design?
                    What is yours and what is mine?
                    'Cause there is no more new frontier
                    We have got to make it here

                    We satisfy our endless needs and
                    justify our bloody deeds,
                    in the name of destiny
                    and in the name of God

                    And you can see them there,
                    On Sunday morning
                    They stand up and sing about
                    what it's like up there
                    They call it paradise
                    I don't know why
                    You call someplace paradise,
                    kiss it goodbye

                      Ostani đubre do kraja


                      Dok stojim za sankom delimicno pijan
                      mrzeci pomalo i sebe i druge,
                      ubijam lagano konjak, cigarete,
                      prijatelje dobre, moje verne sluge.
                      Nisam od onih koji cvile,
                      vise te nemam i sta tu mogu,
                      ja cu se posle odvuci kuci
                      samo da popijem jos jednu s nogu.

                      Nisi valjda luda da se stidis
                      sto si me prognala istocno od raja
                      bar se nasmesi kada me vidis,
                      ostani djubre do kraja!!!

                      Nisi valjda luda da se stidis
                      sto si me prognala istocno od raja
                      bar se nasmesi kada me vidis,
                      ostani djubre do kraja.

                      Znam, necu moci jos dugo da zaspim,
                      beskrajno duge, proklete noci,
                      kako su pogresni dani bez tebe,
                      tu mi ni pice ne moze pomoci.

                      Nisi valjda luda da se stidis
                      sto si me prognala istocno od raja
                      bar se nasmesi kada me vidis,
                      ostani djubre do kraja!

                      Nisi valjda luda da se stidis

                      bar se nasmesi kada me vidis,

                      Translation from Serbian

                      Stay like scum till the end

                      While standing at the counter, partially drunk
                      hating a bit myself and others,
                      I'm slowly destroying cognac, cigarettes,
                      good friends, my faithful servants.
                      I'm not one to whine,
                      I have no more of this, and they can not help,
                      I'll drag myself home after
                      only drink one more foot.

                      You're not crazy to be ashamed
                      because you banished me to the east of Eden
                      At least smile when you see me,
                      stay scum till the end !!!

                      You're not crazy to be ashamed
                      because you banished me to the east of Eden
                      At least smile when you see me,
                      stay scum till the end.

                      I know, I wont be able to sleep a long time,
                      endlessly long, bloody night,
                      How wrong are the days without you,
                      I do not drink that can help.

                      You're not crazy to be ashamed
                      because you banished me to the east of Eden
                      At least smile when you see me,
                      stay scum till the end!

                      You're not crazy to be ashamed
                      because you banished me to the east of Eden
                      At least smile when you see me,
                      stay scum till the end!

                        - Uh, yeah, I think I'm gonna go down to the shore.
                        - Whadda ya gonna do down there?

                        - Don't forget your Motley Crue t-shirt; y'know all proceeds go to get their lead singer out a' jail.
                        - Uh huh.
                        - Can't wait to go down. Hey uh, were ya gonna check out the sand bar while you're down there?

                        - Ah, it's a place that lets sixteen year-old kids drink.
                        - Ah, cool.
                        - Ya hey, guess who's gonna be there?
                        - Uh, who?
                        - My favourite cover band, Crystal Shit.
                        - Wow.
                        - Yeah, they do a Doors show, you'd be really impressed, in fact, it goes a little like this:

                        Love me two times baby
                        Love me twice today
                        Love me two times girl
                        Cause I got AIDS
                        Love me two times baby,
                        Once for tomorrow,
                        Once cause I got AIDS

                        - Uh...
                        - Pretty good Jim Morrison impersonation there.
                        I hope those guys have a good sense a' humour and don't take us into court.
                        - Uh, what's the court?
                        - Never mind that, the important thing here...
                        - You mean the People's Court.
                        - The... Now, that's another story.
                        The important thing here is that we get to the part
                        Where you ask me how I'm gonna get down to the shore.
                        - Oh, how you gettin' down to the shore?
                        - Funny you should ask, I've got a car now.
                        - Ah wow, how'd ya get a car?
                        - Oh, my folks drove it up here from the Bahamas.
                        - You're kidding!
                        - I must be, the Bahamas are islands.
                        Okay, the important thing here is that, uh, you ask me what kinda car it is.
                        - Uh uh, what kinda car do ya' got?
                        - I've got a bitchin' Camaro...

                        Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro!
                        I ran over my neighbors
                        Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro!
                        Now I'm in all the papers

                        My folks bought me a bitchin' Camaro
                        With no insurance to match
                        So if I happen to run you down
                        Please don't leave a scratch

                        I ran over some old lady
                        One night at the county fair
                        And I didn't get arrested
                        Because my dad's the mayor

                        Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro!
                        Donuts on your lawn
                        Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro!
                        Tony Orlando and Dawn

                        When I drive past the kids
                        They all spit and cuss
                        Cause I've got a bitchin' Camaro
                        And they have to ride the bus

                        So you'd better get out of my way
                        When I come through your yard
                        Cause I've got a bitchin' Camaro
                        And an Exxon credit card

                        Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro!
                        Hey man where ya headed?
                        Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro!
                        I don't want unleaded!

                          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5CjaqZb5nM


                          There are places I remember
                          All my life though some have changed
                          Some forever not for better
                          Some have gone and some remain
                          All these places have their moments
                          With lovers and friends I still can recall
                          Some are dead and some are living
                          In my life I've loved them all

                          John Lennon/Beatles

                              THE TURTLES LYRICS
                              "It Was A Very Good Year"

                              When I was seventeen
                              It was a very good year
                              It was a very good year for small town girls
                              And soft summer nights
                              Wed hide from the lights
                              On the village green
                              When I was seventeen

                              When I was twenty-one
                              It was a very good year
                              It was a very good year for city girls
                              Who lived up the stair
                              With all that perfumed hair
                              And it came undone
                              When I was twenty-one

                              When I was thirty-five
                              It was a very good year
                              It was a very good year for blue-blooded girls
                              Of independent means
                              Wed ride in limousines
                              Their chauffeurs would drive
                              When I was thirty-five

                              But now the days grow short
                              I'm in the autumn of the year
                              And now I think of my life as vintage wine
                              from fine old kegs
                              from the brim to the dregs
                              And it poured sweet and clear
                              It was a very good year

                              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SgihMpC9S4

                              My therapist says I am a habitual liar and an attention seeker, therefore nothing I say/write is true and under no circumstances should I be believed nor held accountable for anything I say. all photo's are paintings

                              People are born with the instinct to fight against their own death, to struggle with their last breath against even the most unavoidable and uncompromising ends.
