Hey, I felt the coldness of my winter
I never thought it would ever go
I cursed the gloom that set upon us, 'pon us, 'pon us, 'pon us
But I know that I love you so
Oh, but I know
That I love you so
These are the seasons of emotion
And like the wind, they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion
I see the torch
We all must hold
This is the mystery of the quotient, quotient
Upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall
Just a little rain

I chose Ten Years Gone. Even though I really like Thank You and I think it's a really sweet song, it sort of echoes a lot of sentiments found in a lot of other songs. In other words, TYG is a little more original. Besides the line "We are eagles of one nest, the nest is in our souls" alone is a great line.

My all time favorite line of any song!

Why don't you take a good look at yourself and describe what you see
And baby, baby, baby, do you like it?
There you sit, sitting spare like a book on a shelf rustin'
Ah, not trying to fight it
You really don't care if they're coming oh, oh
I know that it's all a state of mind, oh.
If you go down in the streets today, Baby, you better
You better open your eyes
Folk down there really don't care, really don't care
Don't care, really don't
Which, which way the pressure lies

I've always liked the lyrics to "Kashmir", but my fav Zep lyrics are from "Candy Store Rock". A downer song painted as an upbeat song. I think he found some writing inspiration during a difficult time (as many do). I also get the feeling this song is about drugs as much as it is about sex. Just a hunch.

He's singing 50's style "it's all right", obviously a nod to "That's Alright" - but the vibe of the song and the delivery say everything is NOT alright. I love it when a performer/songwriter can get away with doing something like that. It's not easy.

I think he's singing as much to himself as he is whoever the subject is in his song. Pretty meta for a guy like Robert, especially back in 75. He's a huge Dylan fan and Dylan did that quite a bit throughout his career so maybe that's where that came from.

Lennon did a similar double meaning approach with "I Feel Fine" (hint: the character in the song does not feel fine), and many years later Beck made a very fun upbeat song called "Girl" ... about a serial killer!!

SPECIAL BONUS ANSWER:

"One thing I do have on my mind, and if you can clarify .. please do. It's the way etc .."

These lyrics are SO BAD but at the same time all kinds of awesome.

Barney: "Umm ... Betty? Something I've been meaning to ask you ..."

Betty: "Yes?"

Barney: "When we have our special time, I couldn't help but notice ... you keep calling me Fred. But my name's Barney. Sorry to bring it up, but it's concerning me. It's been 14 times now. I was hoping you could clarify?"
