Title: What's your favourite song lyrics?
Post by: Brendarella on September 04, 2017, 12:43:32 am
For me, I love the lyrics from No Church in the Wild by Jay Z.

Human beings in a mob
What's a mob to a king?
What's a king to a god?
What's a god to a non-believer?
Who don't believe in anything? Nothing at all.
We make it out alive
All right, all right
No church in the wild

I also like Carole King's track "You Light Up My Life"

I never knew how good I could feel
Loving you's left me with nothing to conceal
Yeah.you really light up my life
You give me faith, and hope,
and love, and light.

George Jones -- He Stopped Loving Her Today

He said, "I'll love you till I die"
She told him, "You'll forget in time"
As the years went slowly by
She still preyed upon his mind

He kept her picture on his wall
Went half-crazy, now and then
He still loved her through it all
Hoping she'd come back again

Kept some letters by his bed
Dated 1962
He had underlined in red
Every single 'I love you'

I went to see him just today
Oh, but I didn't see no tears
All dressed up to go away
First time I'd seen him smile in years

He stopped loving her today

My dad is where I picked it up from. :happy  He has been subjecting me to it since I was a baby.  George was definitely one of the greats.

One of my favorites
I keep trying to find a life
On my own, apart from You
I am the king of excuses
I've got one for every selfish thing I do
What's going on inside of me?
I despise my own behavior
This only serves to confirm my suspicions
That I'm still a man in need of a Savior
I want to be in the Light
As You are in the Light
I want to shine like the stars in the heavens
Oh, Lord be my Light and be my salvation
Cause all I want is to be in the Light
All I want is to be in the Light
The disease of self runs through my blood
It's a cancer fatal to my soul
Every attempt on my behalf has failed
To bring this sickness under control

And a real classic
Oh Lord my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds
Thy hands have made
I see the stars
I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout
The universe displayed
Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great thou art
How great thou art
Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art
And when I think of God,
His son not sparing,
Sent Him to die,
I scarce can take it in;
That on the cross, my burden
gladly bearing He bled and died
to take away my sin

One of my all time favorites..

Jimmy Webb – "The Highwayman"

I was a highwayman
Along the coach roads I did ride
With the sword and pistol by my side
And many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
And many a soldier shed his life blood on my blade
They fin'lly hung me in the spring of '25
But I am still alive

I was a sailor
And I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide
I sailed a schooner 'round the horn of Mexico
I went aloft to furl the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they say that I got killed
But I am living still

I was a dam builder
Across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around
Seems like it all goes 'round and 'round
And 'round and 'round

I'll fly a starship
Across the universe divide
Until I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll be back again
And again, and again, and again.

"She got a big booty, so I call her big booty" - 2 Chainz, Birthday Song


But seriously,

"She's a certified mind blower knowing full well that I don't
I may suggest there's somewhere from which I might know her
Just to get the ball to roll
Drunken monologues, confused because
It's not like I'm falling in love I just want you to do me no good
And you look like you could" - Arctic Monkeys, Number One Party Anthem

Dead Can Dance - Children Of The Sun:

As ancient as the sun
We came from the ocean
Once our ancestral home
So that one day
We could all return
To our birthright
The great celestial dome

We are the children of the sun
Our journey's just begun
Sunflowers in our hair
We are the children of the sun
There is room for everyone
Sunflowers in our hair


Project Pitchfork - Conjure:

I wanna be a creature
Before humanity is on earth
No hate, no wars, no ignorance, no force
Only one with mother earth
No sorrow escorts us from our birth
Be a bridge over the river of love
From justice to happiness
Set up by the hands of freedom
From justice to happiness
Set up by the hands of freedom

Yet wishes could be true
Don't turn away, it could be you
The answer will roar at us
If we listen into ourselves
We twaddle since centuries
About justice and peace
We're living in a material world
Supported through avarice
Mendacity is our life
We conceal love and light

I only know one song with the word "mendacity" in the lyrics.  Now, I know two.

Quand on verra dans le miroir
Nos faces ridées pleines d’histoires
Quand on en aura moins devant
Qu’on en a maintenant
Quand on aura enfin du temps
Et qu’on vivra tranquillement
Quand la maison sera payée
Qu’y restera plus rien qu’à s’aimer
On va s’aimer encore


On va s'aimer encore is by Vincent Vallière, a Québécois singer.  This first verse sets the stage by saying that our wrinkled, story-telling faces...with more years behind than ahead...we'll live quietly...the house us paid...there's nothing left to do but love each other and we will continue to love each other.

It's quite meaningful as bith my wife and I feel that this song captures the strength of our relationship and marriage.

You probably heard Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance) before. Seen Gladiator? She composed the score together with Hans Zimmer :smiley:

No wonder I loved that Gladiator music.

Now I've just discovered "Rakim" by Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard.

I don't want to hate you
I don't want to take you.
But I don't want to be the one to cry.


Sometimes love just ain't enough.

Cold wind blows, I am shivering
My body? aches as my heart is breaking
Why is life making me hollow?
Why is happiness casting me in the shadows?
In the shadows.

Hold on, dont turn and walk away
Save me
And I cried these words but nobody came

Im all alone, running scared
Losing my way in the dark
I tried to get up, stand on a prayer
But I keep crashing down hard
This is my side of the story
Only my side of the story
Nobody cares, nobodys? there, no one will hear
My side of the story

Here are a few samples from songs I like

Vamps - Vampire's Love:

The dazzling smile
Was just beyond my reach
How sweet and innocent you were

If I could cross my night into the sun
All my words to you
I still wonder what I'd say

Stray dream of you
Lights the chain of stars to find the way
In the darkest night of my lost and frozen heart
Long ago


Dir en Grey - Glass Skin:
 
The bells of reality rings out loudly from down deep within 
And disappears along with all the wind

Billy Talent - Saint Veronica:

And while the angels sleep
All of the devils are awake
Waiting to steal your love
Right outside of Heaven's gate
And all the sacred hearts
Can't numb the feeling from the pain
Cause when the drugs don't work
You're gonna curse His holy name

The Cure - A Strange Day:

And the sand
And the sea grows
I close my eyes
Move slowly through drowning waves
Going away
On a strange day
