Live Long...

Are you ever overwhelmed by every little thing....taste, thoughts, sights, sounds...

Kings of Convenience - "Live Long"

Summerchild that sits by the water
weaving sunlight threads in his hands
the golden river that day a shelter
a stream where he could make pebbles dance

you looked around you, nobody had taken
any notice of what you saw: against the evening sky a formation
a million black birds looking like one

live long
save ten years to remember
live long
hold it in front of your eyes once more

My Champagne and this song consume me...


For all that I am....I am not.

I like it ... don't know "Kings of Convenience" though

This is something I've written down ...some random thoughts/feelings... translated freely

Dream of -

Every time I see you

A distant yearning becomes an obsession
I long for winter nights, together, close
A nice fire burning, warm, like you, caring
Not thinking but feeling
Holding you, feeling, your heart beating.
Looking in your eyes, drifting with your dreams, thoughts
Wanting to never see you hurt, protecting
Our minds like one, melting

If only it were true.
Not a spasm of my imagination.
If only I had the chance, redo my life.

If only

That's beautiful. Really. I think things that are intense / painful (emotionally) are beautiful. It's hard to "feel" - so anytime I read something that can make that happen - it's good.

What a creative bunch of guys here. *is a little nonplussed*

The song that goes with the lyrics for Live Long *makes* the lyrics. Sometimes it's the other way around....where the music is so-so but the lyrics are so good that it ends up being a good song.

These are some lyrics I love - that I posted with a photograph on dA. (I'd love to post some poetry - but I'm not that brave, yet. Bravo to you, beste C.)

The Weight of My Words - Kings of Convenience

There are very many things
I would like to say to you
But I've lost my way
And I've lost my words

There are very many places
I would like to go
But I can't find the key
To open my door

The weight of my words
You can't feel it anymore
The weight of my words
You can't feel it anymore

There are very many ways
I would like to break the spell
You've cast upon me

Because all the time
I sacrificed myself
To make you want me
Has made you haunt me

The weight of my words
You can't feel it anymore

The weight of my words
You can't feel it anymore

The weight of my words
You can't feel it anymore

There are very many things
I would like to say to you
But I've lost my way
And I've lost my words

There are very many places
I would like to go
But I can't find the key
To open my door
For all that I am....I am not.

I'm glad someone likes my stuff. :)

Do you know how embarrassed I am to have to go out on the side of the road and take pics....or even worse - in the city. :s

Supposedly..I'll get over it.

You'll make me, huh...

While we are on the subject of lyrics ...

These I find very nice ...simple but nice ...they always remind me of a lost love ...so it's probably an extra bonus.

She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I stared too long
I'd probably break down and cry

Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love of mine

She's got eyes of the bluest skies
And if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by

... Sweet Child of Mine - Guns and Roses

never thought I'd see GaR lyrics in this thread .....

Rock ON :)

my personal all time favourite lyrics are

Led Zeppelin : Since I've been Loving You

no particular reason, and I was twelve when I bought the album [1970 ish :shock:] so the 'I walk into my front door, and hear my back door slam' bit went STRAIGHT over my head .........
Beware of Geeks bearing GIF's :shock:

Actually Guns and Roses' "apetite for destruction" was one of my first CD's I ever bought ... along with Bruce Springsteen "Born in the USA" ... 8)

Aah Memories ...

Some more lyrics ... short but to the point ... If you read between the lines you can feel the pain.

Hey little girl is your daddy home
Did he go and leave you all alone
I got a bad desire
I’m on fire

Tell me now baby is he good to you
Can he do to you the things that I do
I can take you higher
I’m on fire

Sometimes it’s like someone took a knife baby
Edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
Through the middle of my soul

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running through the
Middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
I’m on fire


Bruce Springsteen - I'm on fire

:shock: That is the only song I like of his. Like is an understatement.

You know what the tragedy is...is that song is WAY too short. :(
