    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    I saw her leave the luau with the one who parked the cars...

    This could easily turn into a Zevon thread.  The man was amazing and I am proud to have known him.

    I saw him live many times but my favorite story is from a performance in Portland, Maine circa 1990.  He was playing what I think at the time was called The Great Northeast Music Hall, although the venue went through about a dozen or so names through the years (originally The Loft - home to the late, great Bill Chinnock).  The show was very late.  The sold-out crowd was waiting outside the locked doors, more and more impatiently as time passed.  Finally, the doors opened and folks had about enough time to get themselves a drink or two when Warren came out with a blazing set.  Between songs early in the set, he explained the delay:  the new, neophyte owner of the the club read in the contract that the show was to be "solo acoustic," but neglected to read the staging requirements.  "The hammerhead thought we didn't need a PA," explained Zevon, to audiences' amusement and delight.  All was forgiven for the delay and it turned out to be a great show.

    I urge anyone who wants to hear Zevon live with a full band to get a copy of Stand in The Fire, recently re-released on CD and digitally.  "Get up and dance or I'll KILL ya!"  There will never be another one like him.

    I didn't have to come to Maui
    To be treated like a jerk
    How do you think I feel
    When I see the bellboys smirk?

    Two, three, the count with nobody on,
    He hit a high fly into the stand.
    Roundin' third he was headed for home.
    It was a brown-eyed, handsome man,
    That won the game. It was a brown-eyed, handsome man.
    -Chuck Berry

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    So, so you think you can tell
    Heaven from Hell,
    Blue skies from pain.
    Can you tell a green field
    From a cold steel rail?
    A smile from a veil?
    Do you think you can tell?

    Did they get you to trade
    Your heroes for ghosts?
    Hot ashes for trees?
    Hot air for a cool breeze?
    And cold comfort for change?
    Did you exchange
    A walk on part in the war,
    For a lead role in a cage?

    How I wish, how I wish you were here.
    We're just two lost souls
    Swimming in a fish bowl,
    Year after year,
    Running over the same old ground.
    What have we found
    The same old fears.
    Wish you were here.

    Pink Floyd - Wish you were here.

    All that you touch
    All that you see
    All that you taste
    All you feel.
    All that you love
    All that you hate
    All you distrust
    All you save.
    All that you give
    All that you deal
    All that you buy,
    beg, borrow or steal.
    All you create
    All you destroy
    All that you do
    All that you say.
    All that you eat
    And everyone you meet
    All that you slight
    And everyone you fight.
    All that is now
    All that is gone
    All that's to come
    and everything under the sun is in tune
    but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

    Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon (Eclipse)

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

     One of my sentimental favorite lyrics.
    Moody Blues-Nights in white satin

    Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
    Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
    Beauty I'd always missed with these eyes before.
    Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

    'Cos I love you, yes I love you, oh how I love you.

    Gazing at people, some hand in hand,
    Just what I'm going through they can't understand.
    Some try to tell me, thoughts they cannot defend,
    Just what you want to be, you will be in the end.

    And I love you, yes I love you,
    Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

    Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
    Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
    Beauty I've always missed, with these eyes before.
    Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

    'Cos I love you, yes I love you,
    Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.
    'Cos I love you, yes I love you,
    Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

    Breath deep
    The gathering gloom
    Watch lights fade
    From every room
    Bedsitter people
    Look back and lament
    Another day's useless
    Energy spent

    Impassioned lovers
    Wrestle as one
    Lonely man cries for love
    And has none
    New mother picks up
    And suckles her son
    Senior citizens
    Wish they were young

    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

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    I used to go to the gymn 6 days a week and workout to Def Leppard's Adrenalize album a lot. White Lightning seemed to get me pumped up more than any other song, especially this part:


    You wanna leave but you can't let go
    You wanna stop but you can't say no
    (You never laugh about it, you just can't live without it)
    You've had enough but you just want more
    You never get what you're looking for
    (You never laugh about it)

    You've got both ends burning
    Like a moth to a flame
    You're going off the rails
    Like a runaway train
    It's a no-win situation
    And there's no way out
    And no one will ever hear you - Scream and shout

    [Repeat Bridge]

    Run - He's coming to claim you
    Run - Nowhere to hide away
    Run - You dance with danger
    Run - Oh you gotta ride

    The White Lightning - On a dead end street
    White Lightning - Where the deadbeats meet
    White Lightning - It's a one way ride
    White Lightning - Oh, there's nowhere to hide

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    The one that always gets me going 4 and great live.

    Alright!

    We are scanning the scene
    in the city tonight
    We're looking for you
    to start up a fight
    There's an evil feeling in our brains
    But it's nothing new
    you know it drives us insane

    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy!
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy

    There is no escape
    and that's for sure
    This is the end we won't take any more
    Say goodbye to the world you live in
    You've always been BITCHING
    but now you're KILLING

    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy!
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy!!

    Our brains are on fire
    with the feeling to kill
    And it won't go away
    'til our dreams are fulfilled
    There is only one thing on our minds
    Don’t try running away
    `cause you’re the one we will find

    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy!
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Ahahahaha!

    D-A-M-N Good choice. Always thought they should have done a video to this song.

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    Always liked this one from ELP, especially the live version, Lake at his very best.

    Do you wanna be an angel
    Do you wanna be a star
    Do you wanna play some magic
    On my guitar
    Do you wanna be a poet
    Do you wanna be my string
    You could be anything

    Do you wanna be the lover of another undercover
    You could even be the
    Man on the moon

    Do you wanna be the player
    Do you wanna be the string
    Let me tell you something
    It just don't mean a thing

    You see it really doesn't matter
    When you're buried in disguise
    By the dark glass on your eyes
    Though your flesh has crystallised
    Still...you turn me on

    Do you wanna be the pillow
    Where I lay my head
    Do you wanna be the feathers
    Lying on my bed
    Do you wanna be the cover
    Of a magazine
    Create a scene

    Every day a little sadder
    A little madder
    Someone get me a ladder

    Do you wanna be the singer
    Do you wanna be the song
    Let me tell you something
    You just couldn't be more wrong

    You see I really have to tell you
    That it all gets so intense
    From my experience
    It just doesn't seem to make sense
    Still...you turn me on

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    Ok, here goes for classical, my favorite song is Ave Maria, sung by Luciano Pavorotti.  In Latin.
    So I won't post the lyrics for that one.  Laughing    hahah!!  really, it's gorgeous. 

    Also, Girlfriend in a Coma .... twisted, these lyrics have had lots of interpretation,  I've always been drawn to this song.

    Girlfriend in a coma, I know
    I know - it's serious
    Girlfriend in a coma, I know
    I know - it's really serious

    There were times when I could
    Have "murdered" her
    (But you know, I would hate
    Anything to happen to her)

    NO, I DON'T WANT TO SEE HER

    Do you really think
    She'll pull through ?
    Do you really think
    She'll pull through ?
    Pull through ...

    Girlfriend in a coma, I know
    I know - it's serious
    My, my, my, my, my, my baby, goodbye

    There were times when I could
    Have "strangled" her
    (But you know, I would hate
    Anything to happen to her)
    WOULD YOU PLEASE
    LET ME SEE HER !
    Do you really think
    She'll pull through ?
    Do you really think
    She'll pull through ?
    Pull Through ...
    As I whisper my last goodbyes

    I know - IT'S SERIOUS ...

    Great song and great words...on a humorous note, I always thought as a lyricist, there was nobody who was more of a rhyme-aholic than Greg Lake.  Sadder... madder...ladder.

    Very true, Lucky Man is the same way. And both songs have references to feathers and a pillow or a mattress.
