favorite lyric written by plant in a zep song


Recommended Posts

Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light

To chase a feather in the wind

Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight

There moves a thread that has no end.

For many hours and days that pass ever soon

The tides have caused the flames to dim

At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom

Is this to end or just begin?

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again

One voice is clear above the din

Proud Arian one word, my will to sustain

For me, the cloth once more to spin.

Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time

He is the force that lies within

Ours is the fire, all the wamth we can find

He is a feather in the wind.

All of my love, All of my love, All of my love, to you!

All of my love, All of my love, All of my love, to you!

I love the metaphor of a thread that has no end that time weaves into the cloth of your life, which then lives on in the lives of those whom you love, long after you are gone.

I saw a lion he was standing alone, with a tadpole in jar.

That line makes me feel like this :wacko: and this :D.

Now, I'm not too sure of this theory, but I once read the 'tadpole in a jar' was slang for when a guy was REALLY horny and about to burst ... they based part of their reason that a tadpole resembles a spermatoza under a microscope. Like I said, I'm not too sure about that theory ...

Or, it could just be innocence of early summer days, when a boy might collect tadpoles and keep them in a jar of water.

Who knows ... Bobby Plant's gonna take his lyrical cunnumdrums to his grave and we'll never know.

Here's a few of my favorites.

"We are eagles of one nest, the nest is in our souls"

"I don't know what to say about it

When all you ears have turned away

But now's the time to look and look again at what you see

Is that the way it ought to stay"

"Wandering & wandering, What place to rest the search

Where the mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth"

"Spend my days with a woman unkind

Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine"

There are so many good ones though. It's hard to choose!

Here's a few of my favorites:

Ten Years Gone

Did you ever really need somebody,

Really need 'em bad

Did you ever really want somebody,

The best love you ever had

Do you ever remember me, baby?

Did it feel so good?

'Cause it was just the first time

And you knew you would

Thank You

If the sun refused to shine,

I would still be loving you.

When mountains crumble to the sea,

There will still be you and me.

Over the Hills And Far Away

Many dreams come true

And some have silver linings

I live for my dreams

And a pocketful of gold.

I really like ''The Rain Song''... BUT (and it's a BIG but), John H. Bonham is my hero, and I mean like... really my hero, I'm not a drummer (yet, because I hope to be one day), I wish I could play some songs from LZ in Rock Band.

Anyway, my favorite from John Bonham(read: LEd Zeppelin) are Moby Dick, Achilles Last Stand, Stairway To Heaven, Four Sticks, Ramble On...

In fact, I just LOVE Led Zeppelin (you don't have any idea... that band and Tool, make me start drumming)... and I'm 21... is it strange or something, anyway, sorry for derailing this thread!

Not strange at all to be inspired to drum after discovering Zep :D

Many times I loved

Many times been bitten

Many times Ive gazed

Along the open road.

Many times Ive lied

Many times Ive listened

Many times Ive wondered

How much there is to know. - Over The Hills And Far Away

"My lover, she is lyin' on the dark side of the globe..." - The Rover

Youve been learnin, baby, I bean learnin,

All them good times, baby, baby, Ive been yearnin,

Way, way down inside honey, you need it,

Im gonna give you my love,

Im gonna give you my love. - Whole Lotta Love

Sisters of the way-side bide their time in quiet peace,

Await their place within the ring of calm;

Still stand to turn in seconds of release,

Await the call they know may never come.

In times of lightness, no intruder dared upon

To jeopardize the course, upset the run;

All was joy and hands were raised toward the sun

As love in the halls of plenty overrun.

Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast,

Unending dances shadowed on the day.

Within their walls, their daunting formless keep,

Preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay.

Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep,

Just turn a coin, bring order to the fray;

And everything is soon no sooner thought than deed,

But no one seemed to question in anyway.

How keen the storied hunter's eye prevails upon the land

To seek the unsuspecting and the weak;

And powerless the fabled sat, too smug to lift a hand

Toward the foe that threatened from the deep.

Who cares to dry the cheeks of those who saddened stand

Adrift upon a sea of futile speech?

And fall to fate and make the 'status plan'

Lord wherever were you to reach...

A man I know, went down to Louisiana,

had himself a bad, bad fight

And when the sun peeked through

John Cameron with Suzanna,

He kissed the whiskers, left & right

Whiskers!

Now, now, now, fright subsides

Out at a hotel in the quarter, our friends check in to pass the night

Now love gets hot, but fire preceded water

Poor whiskers set the room alight.

Whiskers!

Down on Bourbon street, You know it's right

You can see my friend, they run around all through the night

Most everywhere, Until the closet's bare

Run for the razor, Doin' up my hair

New Orleans queens, Sure know how to schmooze it

Maybe for some that seems alright

When I step out, strut down with my sugar

She'd best not talk like Barry White!
