Favorite Led Zeppelin Lyrics

Recommended Posts

What is your favorite line or verse in all of Led Zeppelin's music? What line speaks to you, has some special meaning, or just sounds cool? Please explain your choice.

Mine is from Kashmir and is incidentally in my signature:

I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been...

I think this line emphasizes Led Zeppelin's power as a group. Traveling through time and space signifies an almost God-like quality their musically legacy has, and "to be where I have been" speaks to the insane peaks Led Zeppelin reached; places few other bands have or ever will get to.

Ten Years Gone - "We are eagles of our nest, the nest is in our soul"

From In The Light. Just believe then you can't go wrong.

The next line of, In the light, you will find the road, is good too.

From Fool In the Rain;

"There's a light in your eye that keeps shining, like a star that can't wait for the night"

To me it speaks of happiness and an enthusiasm for life.

Ten Years Gone ~ Did you ever really need somebody, And really need 'em bad.. Did you ever really want somebody, The best love you ever had

The Rain Song ~ I cursed the gloom that set upon us...But I know that I love you so

Everything that's small has to grow.

And it has to grow!-The song remains the same

The last line is actually, "And it always grows".

"Took my seed from my shakin' frame..."

Those words are pure carnal imagery brilliance.

'The mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth', Achilles Last Stand. When I hear that line I imagine Robert stood at the top of the Atlas mountains being inspired.

'And our time is flyin', see the candle burnin' low. Is the new world rising, from the shambles of the old?', The Rover

Well, I've got a number of favourites, so, I'll just post my top 3 :

1. From "Ten Years Gone" - Did you ever really need somebody, And really need 'em bad

Did you ever really want somebody, The best love you ever had.

Personally, I find these lines to be very touching! :wub:

2. From "In The Light" - And if you feel that you can't go on. And your will's sinkin' low, Just believe and you can't go wrong. In the light you will find the road.

Very beautiful and inspiring! :D

3. From "The Rover" - And our time is flyin' see the candle burnin' low, Is the new world risin', from the shambles of the old, If we could just join hands

Something about the way Robert sings it, just sends chills down my spine! :wub:

Ten Years Gone, I'm Gonna Crawl and In The Light are some of the best lyrics in their catalog.

These are just a few of the lyrics I like. I really like the live concert lyrics such as Knebworth, Royal Albert Hall & Earl's Court. If you listen to Kashmir [Knebworth], the lyrics are a little different and rearranged differently. And the same with Dazed & Confused [Royal Albert Hall].

Kashmir

"Sit with elders of the gentle race

This world has seldom seen

Th' talk of days for which they sit and wait

All will be revealed.."

Stairway To Heaven

"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, yeah, to be a rock and not to roll.

And she’s buying a stairway… to heaven...."

Over The Hills & Far Away

"Many have I loved - Many times been bitten

Many times I've gazed along the open road.

Many times I've lied - Many times I've listened

Many times I've wondered how much there is to know.

Many dreams come true and some have silver linings

I live for my dream and a pocketful of gold. "

Ramble On

"Leaves are falling all around, It's time I was on my way.

Thanks to you, I'm much obliged for such a pleasant stay.

But now it's time for me to go. The autumn moon lights my way.

For now I smell the rain, and with it pain, and it's headed my way.

Sometimes I grow so tired, but I know I've got one thing I got to do... "

No Quarter

"Close the door, put out the light.

You know they won't be home tonight.

The snow falls hard and don't you know?

The winds of Thor are blowing cold.

They're wearing steel that's bright and true

They carry news that must get through. "

when i graduated high school, we were allowed to decorate our graduation caps. our mascot happened to be an eagle, so mine said “when the eagle leaves the nest, it’s got so far to go” (ten years gone). i’ve always been a huge zeppelin fan so it meant a lot to me :) 

i also LOVE “yesterday i saw you kissing tiny flowers, but all that lives is born to die” (that’s the way). so poetic and beautiful.

We are eagles of one nest. 

The nest is in our souls 

Just typing that gives me goose bumps. That song and the lyrics are so evocative.
