pieces of great song lyrics
beautiful words from songs

The following are bits and pieces of the Brain Candy collector's favorite song lyrics, accumulated through the years. In the case of some shorter works, the entire song is included.

 

And as we wind on down the road
our shadows taller than our soul
there walks a lady we all know
who shines white light and wants to show
how everything still turns to gold
and if you listen very hard
the tune will come to you at last
when all are one and one is all
to be a rock and not to roll.
- - - Led Zeppelin, "Stairway to Heaven"

All you touch and all you see,
Is all your life will ever be.
- - - Pink Floyd, "Breathe"

All of us get lost in the darkness
Dreamers learn to steer by the stars
All of us do time in the gutters
Dreamers turn to look at the cars
- - - Rush "The Pass"

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come:
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
- - - John Newton, "Amazing Grace"

And Honey, I miss you and I'm being good.
And I'd love to be with you if only I could.
- - - Bobby Goldsboro, "Honey"

And if I can't be with you I would rather have a different face
And if I can't be near you I would rather be adrift in space
And if the gods desert us I would burn this chapel into flames
And if someone tries to hurt you I would put myself in your place
- - - Neil Finn "Try Whistling This"

And if she asks you why you can tell her that I told you
That I'm tired of Castles in the Air
I've got a dream I want the world to share in castle walls
Just leave me to despair

Hills of forest green where the mountains touch the sky
A dream come true, I'll live there 'til I die
I'm asking you, to say my last good-bye
The love we knew, ain't worth another try
- - - Don McLean "Castles in the Air"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
- - - Harry Chapin, "Cat's In the Cradle"

And the seasons, they go round and round,
And the painted ponies go up and down.
We're captive on the carousel of time.
We can't return, we can only look
Behind from where we came,
And go round and round and round in the circle game.
- - - Tom Rush, "The Circle Game"

And the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls,
And tenement halls,
And whispered in the sounds of silence.
- - - Paul Simon, "Sounds of Silence"

And though you want to last forever,
You know you never will,
You know you never will,
And the good-bye makes the journey harder still.
- - - Cat Stevens "O Very Young"

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking.
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older.
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
- - - Pink Floyd, "Time"

Are you lonesome tonight?
Do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a bright sunny day?
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?
- - -Roy Turk and Lou Handman, "Are You Lonesome Tonight"

Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take you to
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo Montego, baby why don't we go
Ooh I wanna take you down to
Kokomo, we'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go, way down in Kokomo.
- - -Beach Boys, "Kokomo"

Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me,
Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee.
- - - Stephen Foster, "Beautiful Dreamer"

Because you're mine
I walk the line.
- - - Johnny Cash, "I Walk the Line"

Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
- - -Lorenz Hart, "Blue Moon"

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you.
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new.
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I love you more.
- - -Beatles "In My Life"

Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire
- - -Robbie Kreiger , "Light My Fire"

Day is done
gone the sun
from the lake
from the hill
from the sky
all is well
safely rest
God is nigh
- - - Anonymous "Taps"

Doesn't anybody stay in one place any more?
- - - Carole King, "Far Away"

Don't go changing, to try and please me
You never let me down before.
- - - Billy Joel, "Just the Way You Are"

Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, baby, and I don't want to miss a thing.
'Cause even when I dream of you,
The sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you baby, and I don't want to miss a thing.
- - - Aerosmith "Don't want to miss a thing"

Down the street the dogs are barking
And the day is getting dark.
As the night comes in a-falling,
The dogsīll lose their bark
And the silent night will shatter
From the sounds inside my mind,
For Iīm one to many mornings
And a thousand miles behind.
From the crossroads of my doorstep,
My eyes they start to fade,
As I turn my head back to the room
Where my love and I have laid....
- - - Bob Dylan "One Too Many Mornings"

Driving that train, high on cocaine
Casey Jones you'd better watch your speed
Trouble ahead, trouble behind
And you know that notion just crossed my mind
- - - Robert Hunter (Grateful Dead) "Casey Jones"

Every breath you take and every move you make
Every bond you break, every step you take
I'll be watchin' you

Every single day and every word you say
Every game you play, every night you stay
I'll be watchin' you
- - -Sting, "Every Breath You Take"

Every time I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It goes by, like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay
- - - Aerosmith, "Dream On"

Fly away, to the rainbow in the sky
Gold is at the end for each of us to find
There the road begins, where another one will end
Here the four winds know who will break and who will bend
All to be the Master of the Wind
- - - Manowar, " Master of the Wind"

Fred Jones was worn out from caring for his often
screaming and crying wife during the day, but

ease the pain would set the house ablaze
with a cigarette
- - - Ben Folds Five, "Cigarette" (that's the whole song)

Gentle on the surface of his thoughts his body floats
Unweighed down by passion or intensity
Yet unaware of the depth upon which he coasts
And he finds a home in me
For what misfortune sows, he knows my touch will reap
- - -Fiona Apple, "Pale September"

He not busy being born is busy dying.
- - - Bob Dylan, "It's Alright, Ma"

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill?
He sounds too blue to fly.
The midnight train is whining low,
I'm so lonesome I could cry.
- - - Hank Williams, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry"

How can I be sure
in a world that's constantly changing?
How can I be sure where I stand with you?
Whenever I, whenever I am away from you
I wanna die
cause you know I wanna stay with you.
How do I know?
Maybe you're trying to use me;
flying too high can confuse me;
touch me but don't take me down.
- - - The Young Rascals, "How Can I Be Sure?"

How I wish

Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year

Running over the same old ground.

The same old fears
Wish you were here

I don't believe in forever, or love as a mystical state
I don't believe in the stars or the planets
or angels watching from above
But I believe there's a ghost of a chance
we can find someone to love
and make it last.
- - - Rush "Ghost Of A Chance"

i like a tombstone, cuz it weathers well,
and if it stands or if it crumbles, only time will tell.

and you can carve my name in marble, you must cut it deep;
there'll be no dancing on the gravestone, you must let me sleep.
---suzanne vega, "tombstone"

I met a girl who sang the blues
and I asked her for some happy news,

They caught the last train to the coast
The day the music died.

Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I will always love you.

We're the ones who have to fly.

in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes

Is this the real life
Is this just fantasy
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality

Because I'm easy come, easy go; little high, little low
anyway the wind blows doesn't really matter to me
To me

To hear the angels sing.

- - -Gerry Goffin and Carole King, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?"

Unforgettable, that's what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too
- - - Irving Gordon, "Unforgettable"

To watch for you,
To see you through?

When it seems like the night will last forever,
And there's nothing left to do but count the years,
When the strings of my harp to sever,
And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears...

And dream me a dream of my own,
I will walk alone by the black muddy river,
And sing me a song of my own.
- - - Robert Hunter (Grateful Dead) "Black Muddy River"

And for the heavens are those who can fly.

When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all
I'm on your side when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water I will lay me down

While we're living
The dreams we have as children
Fade away

All you have to do is call
And I'll be there,
You've got a friend.

In some celestial voice.

And kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose Freewill

But not on my time.

You say you want, your story to remain untold
All the promises we made
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you.

You know a dream is like a river
Ever changing as it flows.
And a dreamer's just a vessel
That must follow where it goes.
Trying to learn from what's behind you
And never knowing what's in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores.

And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beautiful as you feel.
