Lyrics Of The Day

Recommended Posts

Of course. What else?

In the breaking of the morning you'll be dancing on the soft lawn

You'll be sinking at the anchor that stopped you from taking my gold

You'll be running up the highway singing

"I'm the king the king of you all!"

When you look back to where you started I'll be there waving you on.

 

I Speak Because I Can - Laura Marling

Day after day your home life's a wreck

The powers that be just breathe down your neck

You get no respect, you get no relief

You gotta speak up and yell out your piece

 

So back off your rules

Back off your jive

Cause I'm sick of not living

To stay alive

Leave me alone

I'm not asking a lot

I just don't want to be controlled

That's all I want

That's all I want

That's all I want

That's all I want

I tried buying it last year to no success -I was unhappy to find it isn't on iTunes unless you buy the whole album. Fo' shame.

 

It might've changed now though.

I found a version that could only be bought with the whole album, but further browsing found it available as a single. I had to go through Offspring>Browse by popularity or something I think.

The Boy Least Likely To - A Fairytale Ending

 

 

When I was young I was valiant and bold

I fought off dragons and wrestled with trolls

I was stupid

But I was brave

 

I’m still as stupid as I was before

And although I’m not that young anymore

I’m still valiant

In my own little way

 

Limping off into the sunset

With our tails between our legs

Remembering how it all started

And wondering if this is the way that

My fairytale ends

 

I still remember how gallant I felt

In a suit of armor that I made myself

Out of tin foil

And milk bottle tops

 

I guess that I’m just like everyone else

I find it difficult to be myself

So I pretend

To be something I’m not

 

But in the end everything has to

Turn back into pumpkins and frogs

I wish that it didn’t have to

And I’m wondering if this is the way that

My fairytale ends

Ends

 

Limping off into the sunset

With our tails between our legs

Muttering quietly to myself

And wondering if this is the way that

My fairytale ends

Ends

 

I want to make a video for this. With an impressionist art style and cutesy but frightening dragons.

Calm down on the artistic interpretation in the colouring and font size of the lyrics, I don't think people give that much of a shit.

Yes. They probably give even less of a shit about it than I do about how you feel about me doing it.

 

I see the song in that manner (in fact I see it in a more vivid manner, but I can't be bothered to sketch it out and upload it). This is the creative board afterall. If I wish to express lyrics visually then so be it. I wasn't doing it for "people", I was doing it for me.

You're bad.

 

I actually read Ashley's post, because it looked interesting.

Touchy. By posting it surely you want other people to see the lyrics. There's not really too much point in doing it for yourself if you can visualise it more vividly in your head.

 

Seems... Ostentatious.

 

You carry on though, I won't make any further remarks.

I would like people to read/listen but I know people probably won't. That's the thing with threads like this; its a craps shoot as to whether people will read.

 

This was merely one way to visualise it with words (and here seems as good as place as any, plus the ease of doing it on a computer rather than writing it down myself). I intend to visualise it with art later on.

 

But feel free to remark. I wouldn't try and impose limitations on discussions against my opinion. I'm not The Daily Mail.

 

(but I do have ostentatious tendencies :heh:)

I'm looking for the Tower of Learning

I'm looking for the copious prize

I saw it in your eyes what I'm looking for

I saw it in your eyes what I'm looking for

 

I really do fear that I'm dying

I really do fear that I'm dead

I saw it in your eyes what I'm looking for

I saw it in your eyes what will make me live

 

 

 

 

 

All the sights of Paris

Pale inside your iris

Tip the Eiffel Tower with one glance

Stained glass cathedrals with one glint

I had a dream you came to me,

Said you shall not do me harm anymore!

And with your knife, you evicted my life

From its little lighthouse on the seashore.

 

 

 

And I saw that my blood had no bounds,

Spreading in a circle like an atom bomb,

Soaking and felling everything in its path

And welling in my heart like a birdbath.

 

 

 

It is too short, the day we are born

We commence with our dying,

Trying to serve with the heart of a child;

 

Oh, Kingfisher, lie with the Lion!

Disc 3 of Have One On Me is the most superlatively great thing I've ever been forced to conceive in my mind.

I'm unfazed by Esme, and I haven't analysed Autumn since I first got the album, but wasn't blown away.

Now with 80 plays on iTunes:

 

I don't want to set the world on fire

I just want to start a flame in your heart

 

In my heart I have but one desire

And that one is you

No other will do

 

I've lost all ambition for worldly acclaim

I just want to be the one you love

 

And with your admission that you feel the same

I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of

 

Believe me

 

I don't want to set the world on fire

I just want to start a flame in your heart

 

I have a feeling that I may have influenced Goafer's iTunes purchases again. Beautiful song for a beautiful game, it's like the Inkspots made it for the purpose.

 

Feels weird having posted this like Daft.

Well hey do you do Judo

when they surround you?

A little mental yoga

will they disappear?

 

It's grim but never dubious as motives go

One thing she'll always promises

promises is a show

 

Thunder wishes it could be the Snow

Wishes it could be as loved as she can be

These gifts are here

for her

for you

for me

 

I watch me be this other thing and never know

if I'm marooned or where the purple people go

then lily white matricide

from vicious words

it doesn't leave a scratch

so therefore no one's hurt

 

Thunder wishes it could be the Snow

Wishes it could be as loved as she can be

These gifts are here

for her

for you

for me

 

And on and on

The nurses make it clear

Just when you've escape

you have yourself to fear

a restaurant that never has to close

Breakfast, every hour

it could save the world

 

so hey do you do Judo in your finery?

an angel's face is tricky to wear constantly

 

Thunder wishes it could be the Snow

Wishes it could be as loved as she can be

These gifts are here

for her

for you

for me

For her

 

for her...

Right I promise this'll be my last post in here for at least a month, but this has me in rapture and I'm in love:

 

desert2.jpg

 

Beulah Land

Got a wasted gun

Licorice man

Some you are

Sometimes

Got something in that saying

Beulah girl

You better hitch me up

 

Got some candy

And sweet saying

Give me religion

And a lobotomy

Beulah land

Beautiful home

Tell me when

I don't need you anymore

 

Said that somewhere

You're gonna get something

You're so

You're right in the middle

And then I'm you

Something is coming back again

I said

You

Maybe I don't wanna go

To where you're not

 

So

Beulah land

Gonna find me a warm

Place to bathe

This body on down

Got a rubber boat

And a crocodile

Gonna float on past your home

 

And say when

Just say when

Just say when

Well, if it's so deep you don't think that you can speak about it,

Just remember to reach out and touch the past and the future.

Well, if it's so deep you don't think you can speak about it,

Don't ever think that you can't change the past and the future.

 

What would we do without you?

 

You might not, not think so now,

But just you wait and see -- someone will come to help you.

Passion Pit - Moth's Wings (Stripped Down Version)

 

 

 

 

Dear friend, as you know

Your flowers are withering

Your mother's gone insane

Your leaves have drifted away

But the clouds are clearing up

And I've come reveling

Burning incandescently

Like a bastard on the burning sea...

 

You're just like your father

Buried deep under the water

You're resting on your laurels

And stepping on my toes

Whose side are you on?

What side is this anyway?

Put down your sword and crown

Come lay with me on the ground...

 

You come beating like moth's wings

Spastic and violently

Whipping me into a storm

Shaking me down to the core

But you run away from me

And you left me shimmering

Like diamond wedding rings

Spinning dizzily down on the floor...
