Best song lyrics in the world
 
Well I guess you guys can reply to this with your favorite song lyrics so we can make this into a thread...and sorry Mods if you want this in the movies/music section..I just figured more people would notice it here. Anyways I really wanted to put the lyrics to this song up and recommend ya'll DL and/or listen to it at some point in your life if you haven't already. It was written a long time ago...but re-recorded many times over the years by many artists, like Johnny Cash.

The version of the song I love the most is rare and hard to find but it was performed by the late Jeff Buckley, an Orange County up and comer with awesome blues guitar skills and a singing voice unmatched by many. He had a 2.8 octave pitch range. Tragically he was still pretty young when he drowned...probably in his 20's.

A Satisfied Mind

How many times

have you heard someone say

if I had his money

I'd do things my way

but little they know

that it's so hard to find

one rich man in ten

with a satisfied mind



once I was living

in fortune and fame

and all that I dreamed of

to get a start in life's game

then suddenly it happened

I lost every dime

but I'm richer by far

with a satisfied mind



'cause money won't buy back

the youth when you're old

or a friend when you're lonely

or a heart that's grown cold

the wealthiest person

is a pauper at times

compared to the man

with a satisfied mind



well, my life is ended

all timed but out

my friends and my loved ones

I'll even slow down

but there's one thing for certain

when it comes my time

I'll leave this old world

with a satisfied mind

[Sage Francis] Crack Pipes
I'd give a twenty one gunshot
salute
With a toy rifle that you bought me but it
won't shoot
And all is well because there's been
one too many shots
The sterile robots want to talk to me
about Detox
Stop the presses, there's been an
update
Delivered via 1:30 AM phone call
When an only
half-informative source talks discretely
Meet me-- at the
family room at the side of the Intensive Care Unit
Immediately, I'll carry a tune
The sirens so loud,
can't hear my music
Keep free-- of negative thoughts,
everything'll be fine
We all assume... That it would
go back to the way things were
That it would go back to
normal soon
Saw the moon in a way that I never seen it
before
When I looked up that night into the sky wondering
why
Lookin' for answers, guess I ain't ask
right
I'm guessin most of yall out there know exactly
what that's like
What that's like, now tell me
what's that like?

It's like a whirlwind of
emotions that occurs when moms and dads fight
It's
like when a girl grins, an emotion of hers
That holds your
arm, and grabs tight
Hurl him into the ocean, one of them
cold sweat heat flash types
When(?) extreme fluctuations
and temperature changes
Have been known to crack
pipes...
...crack pipes...crack pipes...

Meet
me-- half way if i go that extra length just to help your
strength
Meet me-- at the AA meeting, needing to take more
then 12 steps
Bring me to your hiding place, so I can face
your vice grip
I'll chisel every single monkey off
your back with this ice pick
Come meet up with me on the
sidelines when the game is over
Just to say hello, then
afterwards, backstage
To let me know that you enjoyed the
show
And go to grandma's house for Sunday dinner
Sit at the head of the table, take away the fatal flaw
you made the day before, I seen you bleed
Meet me-- on
Christmas Eve, we can fight but make up before you leave
Make visits with the rest of those who rest in pieces on my
dreams
Meet me at the fork in the road where lost souls get
indecisive
Meet me at the crossroads so I can have someone
to walk into the light with

Promoter (of Earthbound causes) Clutch

Warmed up my motor, swindled the promoter
Took a lunatic for a ride
And a little voice said inside my head
Rosemary baby, I got the thyme

Suffering madness and the Pharoahís plague
I, Akhenaten tell you some other day
No thank you, thatís enough for me
A little bit of Ritalin goes a long way

Ready to rock if you want to roll
Please step away from the vehicle
Ragnarock and revolutionize
Gimme just a minute while I clarify

Cooled down my temper, tried to remember
What it was I wasnít to lose
And I probably could were it not for
The beer and the broads and the broads and the booze.

Hooked on stupid, and the whole shebang
I never have ever felt the same
No thank you, thatís enough for me
Thatís prozacly not what I need

Ready to rock if you want to roll
Please step away from the vehicle
Ragnarock and revolutionize
Gimme just a minute while I clarify

Lips of an Angel -- Hinder

Honey why you calling me so late
It's kinda hard to talk right now
Honey why you crying is everything okay
I gotta whisper cause I can't be too loud
Well, my girl's in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you
I guess we never really moved on
It's really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak
And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

It's funny that you're calling me tonight
And yes I dreamt of you too
And does he know you're talking to me
Will it start a fight
No I don't think she has a clue
Well my girl's in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you
I guess we never really moved on
It's really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak
And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

It's really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak
And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel
(And I never wanna say goodbye)
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel
Honey why you calling me so late

You Could Be Mine - Guns - N - Roses
 
I'm a cold heartbreaker
Fit ta burn and I'll rip your heart in two
An I'll leave you lyin' on the bed with your ass in the air
I'll be out the door before ya wake
It's nuthin' new ta you
'Cause I think *we've seen that movie too


'Cause you could be mine
But you're way out of line
With your bitch slap rappin'
And your cocaine tongue
You get nuthin' done
I said you could be mine


Now holidays come and then they go
It's nothin' new today
Collect another memory
When I come home late at night
Don't ask me where I've been
Just count your stars I'm home again


'Cause you could be mine
But you're way out of line
With your bitch slap rappin'
And your cocaine tongue
You get nuthin' done
I said you could be mine


You've gone sketchin' too many times
Why don't ya give it a rest
Why
Must you find
Another reason to cry


While you're breakin' down my back n'
I been rackin' out my brain
It don't matter how we make it
'Cause it always ends the same
You can push it for more mileage
But your flaps r' wearin' thin
And I could sleep on it 'til mornin'
But this nightmare never ends
Don't forget to call my lawyers
With ridiculous demands
An you can take the pity so far
But it's more than I can stand
'Cause this couchtrip's gettin' older
Tell me how long has it been
'Cause 5 years is forever
An you haven't grown up yet


You could be mine
But you're way out of line
With your bitch slap rappin'
And your cocaine tongue
You get nuthin' done
I said you could be mine
You should be
You could be mine


Yeah!

Jeff Buckley is AMAZING and so is his father! [:D] Good to see people who actually know who he is. I like his songs "Halelujah", "If You Knew", and "So Real".

Now I would attempt to post some of my favorite lyrics on here, but I would soooo whore up this thread cuz I have way too many [:p]
