Your Song lyrics

Recommended Posts

That part with "knockin' at the door" could use some cowbell. I need to hear it, baby!

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say you're a huge fan of the Saturday Night Live episode involving Blue Oyster Cult, "Don't Fear the Reaper," and Will Ferrell. :D

(I wish I could find a full fucking clip of it but all the damn YouTube videos are either just audio, sped-up, or lame remixes)

I stopped watching SNL in 1986, so I'm not really following you? Don't sweat the U-tube thing, this computer is not set up for it to play. You don't believe that I play a washtub bass with a cowbell and scratchboard on it? It's got a picture of Bo Diddley on the tub part, and my wife hates every second of it. Someday I'll post the U-tube video here, just give me a few decades to catch up on all this technology...

My Brother's Keeper

If you won't share your brother's load

And choose to walk a separate road

Too beaten down to spare a smile

Please remember all the while

There are those who will carry you

You don't believe it but it's true

While you're sanctioning your space

Let your brother run his race

If you can't seem to find the time

And feel your spirit's in decline

And suffer fear inside your weak and restless heart

Terrified to make a start

Must it always bring you pain

To let the caring without shame

Make their world a better place

Must you find that a disgrace

'The Profiteers'

Those dirty bastard oil baron's claim:

IT'S ALL SUPPLY AND DEMAND!!

And as they rake in record profits they say:

Who really gives a damn??

The leftist politician's cry:

HOW CAN YOU LIVE WITH YOURSELVES??

Your profits are absurd!!

And 'condemn' the greedy CEO's

With harsh lawyerspeak words.

But the politician's are full of shit too

As they rake in a profit or two

With every gallon sold it's GOLD!!

Without it what would they do???

What would they do?

<_<

State tax on gas: 28.6 cents a gallon

Federal tax: 18.4 cents a gallon

State tax on diesel: 29.2 cents a gallon

Federal tax: 24.4 cents a gallon

Altogether the gov't. takes in about a dollar a gallon for doing absolutely nothing.

Sounds just like the Mafia.

<_<

a little each day, or so they say

is how to get things done

but more and more of everyday

im feeling numb

no mercury a-risin

no rainbow on the horizon

no lover in my life

noeone to hold me tight

no moon and starry skies

no heaven in my eyes

i just cant live without you

what am i to do?

i just cant live without you

im so lonely and so blue

i feel my life is slippin away

im gettin older everyday

wandering around

cant get my feet back on the ground

baby can you hear me?

dont you feel it too?

i just cant live without

im so lonely and so blue

ive turned another corner

but the street is dimly lit

cant seem to find a home

im lost because of it

i cant feel happy, i cant feel safe

i cant feel anything in this place

yes, im lonely and im blue

but what am i to do?

i just cant live without you

a little each day........

my first attempt: "can't let go"

i can't let go

no, i can't let go

and its time for you to know

that its my turn to grow

but i, i can't let go of the past

i'm sorry our love didn't last

and the kids, theyr'e growing up fast

and i, i can't let go

no i, i can't let go

how did did you become my foe?

now the boy, he's starting to know

that I, i can't let go of my dreams

this life's much harder than it seemed

and its time for my heart to come clean

I can't let go

I can't let go

now my love, my love's gone cold

and its time for you to know

that i, i'm ready to part with the past

my soul to be free at last

and the end, its coming up fast

and i'll just let go, i'll just let go

now i, i just let go

Okay, a love song...

My Love

In the beginning there was love

Looked in your eyes, thanked the Lord above

Who'd ever thought it'd come to this

Who'd think our love would go so thouroughly amiss

I tried to give you all of my love

You were the only one I was thinking of

I know we made some bad mistakes

Found out the hard way just what makes you run away

My love I miss your ebony eyes

Where are you now darlin, can you hear me cry

My love come wipe away all my tears

I'll miss loving you for the rest of my years

Too many times you were afraid

Life's little ups and downs made your feelings fade

I tried to help you belive in yourself

Now our precious love's a picture on my shelf

My love I miss your ebony eyes

Where are you now darlin, can you hear me cry

My love come wipe away all my tears

I'll miss loving you for the rest of my years

And I know it's hard

When you feel you couldn't take another day

Sometimes it's hard

When you feel your loving slowly slip away

Still one night without your lovin's like a thousand long lonely days

My love I miss your ebony eyes

Where are you now darlin, can you hear me cry

My love I know who's holding you now

And after all this time I still want you somehow

My love

This song is called "The River",the chorus is wordless,originally i only had the first and third verses and it was about my depression and third one was altered,it used to be about manic depression,but i changed some lyrics and added the second verse and now it's dedicated to the people of Zimbabwe,FUCK MUGABE!!!

"The River Runs,

Deep and silent,

Like memories,

Inside a dream,

And all that is,

And all that will be,

Flows through The River,

And returns to the sea

I wait in my cell,

Between heaven and hell,

I screamed for peace,

But i was silenced with a shell,

The devil in disguise,

Said that he was colourblind,

But that was a cover,

For the genocide

In the end,

Everything fades out,

When everything's gone

Except the will to be

Will we live on our Knees,

Or die on our feet,

Doomed on election day,

As The River washes over me."

Opinions?

For Better Or Worse.

A light was slowly gathering

Just behind the curve

It's purpose, to illuminate

The sinners of this world

Now wretched and of little use

Just a sliver still remains

The beacon is extinguished

And the sinners go untamed

So weak and feeble, a withered beam

For better or worse child...

...A light

A shot was fired into flesh

To tranquilize the youth

Seduction of the gulible

Is easier than truth

Lies are used as currency

Traded by the few

Selling on their excrement

To radicals like you

So young and useless, a palsied fool

For better or worse child...

...A shot.

Now a change is somersaulting

In upon the wind

Coating everybody and

Everything

Wrought iron and heavy chains

Swing in the archways above

Your mother decries the senseless death

And preaches senseless love.

So cold and noxious, a vicous sway.

For better or worse child...

...A change

(Wright/Carnation)

All lyrics are copywrited.

this is one i wrote about my little boy. he has aspergers syndrome, which is related to autism, but milder. he has a few problems fitting in socially and is a bit behind at school.

Sleep Tight

you dont feel like me

it seems to be

life is mixed up

your head is breaking up

spinning in a sea

dont worry little man

ill be here for you

doin all that i can

to help you get through

one and one turn into six

and i wish i could fix

your hurting mind

im trying to find

the forest from the sticks

dont worry little man

ill be here for you

doin all that i can

to help you get through

its gonna be alright

always alright

its gonna be alright

sleep now dream now

sleep tight, its alright

another one for my "honeydew"....................

SWAY

come to me baby

come on over, over

hold my hand

carry my heart

take it with you

when we're apart

reach into my love

feel the way

sway, sway

moving slowly

take me away, away

sway, sway

im wanting, baby

come on over, over

show your desire

dont be shy

im loving you baby

and you dont know why

feel inside my love

know the way

sway, sway

moving slowly

take me all the way

sway, sway

I first happened on it bout 2003

something reminiscent in the melody

ohhhh did ya write that song for me

how I hoped that it could be

I did a little searchin

just a little too late

Pack all those feelings back away

in my memory to hide

Now again it comes to mind

Did you write that song for me

when I hear it I can't help but think

It all floods back to me

my hearts aloft and I am dreamin

that I touched you somehow

did you cry for me?

did you pray for me?

then pen it in your mastery

and have you figured out that she is me

there are so many subtleties

ohhhh so I hope one day I'll know

to my uncle david, RIP. He passed on at 10:10 on 10/10

ahhhhhh david

what was done to you

what did you do

I will never know

but I don't believe the lies the doctors told

these pills will cure it all

schitzophrenia they say

it happens all the time

you'll be doin just fine

then you just begin to lose your mind

it just slips right on its way

no I don't believe its true

I wish I knew what you knew

seen the secrests that you hold

seen the place that ripped away your soul

I think theres somethig that you can't tell

asecret buried with the dead

three friends left home

just a couple of months

and came back different men

one died crosslegged on the beach

overdose of reds

one hung himself at home

and one went nuts with schitzophrenia

I must admit... a very small part of me hesitates in showing these lyrics. That said, that part of me is so small to be almost inconsequential. However, to appease it, I will start with a very brief history of how this came about.

About 4 weeks ago, I was goofing around on my guitar and starting soloing a slow 12-bar in Dminor. I kept up with it for a little while. About a week after first culling that together, I threw on an album set I made called Evil Woman Blues (I've made tons of different personal "Blues Standards" sets, Evil Woman Blues being just one of them), which was a compilation of Blues and Blues-derived songs about how a woman done the singer wrong, from artists such as Charlie Patton all the way to Led Zeppelin and further on to Stevie Ray Vaughn and Keb Mo. Well, after listening to it, I figured all good Blues artists had at least one song about how a woman done them wrong, so why not me? So here's what I did.

Using the cliche lines found in nearly every one of the songs, I threw together this little ditty (which, honestly, means nothing to me because, so far, I haven't actually experienced this) together. Keep in mind these lyrics are rough and need some polishing. In fact, I wouldn't mind some help with it...

It is, basically, a guitar solo with lyrics. It is a slow, mournful 12-bar blues in Dminor, so imagine that when you're reading these lyrics:

------------------------------

Evil Woman Blues

I wanna tell you 'bout a little woman

Did an evil thing to me

I wanna tell you 'bout a little woman

Did an evil thing to me

You know she made so angry

So much I could not see

You know when she walked

She shook just like a willow tree

You know when she walked

She shook just like a willow tree

I guess I couldn't keep her satisfied

You know she walked all over me

(solo 1)

Every day I went to work

Brought home my hard-earned pay, yeah

Every day I went to work

Brought home my hard-earned pay, yeah

I know she took that money

And gave to another man

When I opened my front door

I'd hear my back door slam

When I opened my front door

I'd hear my back door slam

So I said to myself

"I must have a back-door man"

(solo 2)

So one day I got my gun

Shot that evil woman down

So one day I got my gun

Shot that evil woman down

And now I'm here behind these bars

Wearin' my murder crown

This story has a lesson

For the men listenin' to my sorrow

This story has a lesson

For the men listenin' to my sorrow

Watch out for evil woman

And if you find a girl you like

But she's taken

You best leave her alone

(Turn-around, end)
