Poetic Lyrics.


I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,
your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,
many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
in city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
but now it's come to distances and both of us must try,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time,
walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme,
you know my love goes with you as your love stays with me,
it's just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea,
but let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,
your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,
many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
in city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
but let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

- Leonard Cohen, "Hey That's No Way to Say Goodbye"



"Meet me there,
In the blue.
Where words are not,
Feeling remains."

- Sunny Day Real Estate, "In Circles"



"These fragile bodies have a touch and taste
This fragrant skin, this hair like lace
Spirits open to a thrust of grace
Never a breath you can afford to waste."

- Bruce Cockburn, "Lovers in a Dangerous Time"



"The best thing in heaven
is supposed to be the sun
that shines between two mountains
and melts the Devil's gun."

- Rheostatics, "Dope Fiends and Boozehounds"



"Hate was just a legend,
War was never known.
People worked together
and they lifted many stones.
They carried them to the flatlands
but they died along the way
and they built up with their bare hands
what we still can't do today.

And I know she's living there
and she loves me to this day.
I just can't remember where,
or how I lost my way."

Neil Young, "Cortez the Killer"



"Once I thought I saw you
in a crowded hazy bar,
dancing on the light from star to star"

Neil Young, "Like a Hurricane"



"Long you'll live and high you'll fly
Smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
All you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be."

Pink Floyd, "Breathe"



"I search all the time on the ground for our shadows cast side by side,
just a reminder that I haven't gone crazy, that you exist and are mine.
And I know that your skin is as warm and as real as the smile in your eyes,
but I have to keep touching, and smelling and tasting, for fear it's all lies."

- Cowboy Junkies, "Angel Mine"



"Plant a rose tree on his grave
and on mine plant a vine,
as seasons pass and markers fade
watch them slowly intertwine."

- Cowboy Junkies, "White Sail"



"She is so beautiful,
she is so young and old.
I look at her and I see
the beauty of the light of music."

- REM, "You Are the Everything"



"You're in my blood like holy wine,
you taste so bitter and so sweet.
I could drink a case of you
and I'd still be on my feet..."

- Joni Mitchell, "A Case of You"



The car is on fire
and there's no driver at the wheel...
and the sewers are all muddied
with a thousand lonely suicides.
And a dark wind blows.
The government is corrupt,
and we're all on so many drugs
with the radio on and the curtains drawn.
We're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine
and the machine is bleeding to death.
The sun has fallen down
and the billboards are all leering
and the flags are all dead at the top of their poles.

It went like this:
the buildings toppled in on themselves
mothers clutching babies...
picked through the rubble, and pulled out their hair.
The skyline was beautiful on fire
all twisted metal sretching upwards
everything washed in a thin orange haze.
I said "Kiss me, you're beautiful -
these are truly the last days!"
You grabbed my hand, and we fell into it,
like a daydream, or a fever.

We woke up one morning
and fell a little further down.
As sure as the valley of death
I open up my wallet
and it's full of blood.

- Godspeed You! Black Emperor, "The Dead Flag Blues"



"Because your candle burns too bright,
I almost forgot it was twilight..."

- Elliott Smith, "Twilight"



She placed her ring on the sill,
the dishes piled high.
She's on the front porch step
and the air smells like snow.
She's thinking of the siege to come
and how she'll miss those weekends
in the park with the sun on her face
and her book by her side and that
lingering taste that he left on her tongue.

He lifts his glass from the table.
It leaves a ring where it stood.
He sees the light from the window
caress her like he knows he should.
He's remembering the first time he kissed her
and how he'd wake
and immediately he'd miss her,
like a spell, with each breath,
he'd taste her breath like a haunting,
irritating as hell.

Do you remember when you'd pray to never see the day
when someone would make you feel this way
'cause you knew they would cut right through you.
And once inside, you were afraid they'd find
nothing to hold on to.

He puts her ring on her finger,
she brushes back his hair.
He takes a sip from his glass,
she inhales the cold fall air.
They're thinking of the long road ahead
and the strength that they will need
just to reach the end.
And there in the silence they search for
the balance between this fear that they feel
and a love that has graced their lives."

- Cowboy Junkies, "Ring on the Sill"



"I miss you."

- Slint, "Good Morning, Captain"



"I miss you,
but not in a Slint way."

- Pinback, "AFK"
