"The day I tried to live I stole a thousand beggar's change
and gave it to the rich"


- Soundgarden: "The Day I Tried To Live" from the album "Superunknown"

I reckon Chris Cornell writes the most awesome lyrics. Anyone heard any really interesting/cool/awesome/just plain weird lyrics? Post 'em here...

EDIT: Since the last song was in spanish and when it was translated, it might've looked like gibberish so I'll change it (lyrics are only about 25% of a song anyways):
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty
in the moonlight
overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne,
she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah


- Rufus Wainwright - Hallelujah

A long long time ago
I can still remember how that music used to make me smile...

So, bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Singin' this'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die


-Don McLean: American Pie

Been Dazed and Confused for so long it's not true
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you
Lots of people talk and few of them know
soul of a woman was created below


- Led Zeppelin: "Dazed And Confused" from their debut album "Led Zeppelin"

now if you get a little too high tonight
don't drink and drive
don't drink and drive baby
if you get a little too high
you get your buddy to drive you home
or get your girlfriend to... drive you home
or get your buddy's girlfriend to... drive you home ;) ;)


- George Thorogood doing his bit to prevent drinking & driving during a live performance of "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" on the album "30th Anniversary Tour: Live"

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby, died in the church
And was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt
From his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?


-The Beatles: Eleanor Rigby

If I let you, you would make me destroy myself
In order to survive you, I must first survive myself
I can sink no further, and I cannot forgive you
There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you.
I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain
I will use my mistakes against you, there's no other choice
I'm shameless now, I'm nameless now, I'm nothing now, I'm no-one now
But my soul must be iron, 'cause my fear is naked
I'm naked and fearless
And my fear is naked


- Tool: "Bottom" with Henry Rollins

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.


- The Beatles: "Let It Be"


When you were young
And your heart was an open book
You used to say live and let live
(You know you did, you know you did, you know you did)

But if this ever changing world in which we live in
Makes you give in and cry
Say live and let die


- The Beatles: "Live and Let Die"


Na na na na na, na na na, hey Jude ;)

- The Beatles: "Hey Jude"


and my favourite...

He roller-coaster, he got early warning
He got muddy water, he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking cos he's so hard to see

Come together
Right now
Over me


- The Beatles: "Come Together"

I think about you all the time
But I don't need the same
It's lonely where you are come back down
And I won't tell em your name


- Goo Goo Dolls: "Name"


The shots in the dark from empty guns
Are never heard by anyone


- Goo Goo Dolls: "Naked"

Both from the album "A Boy Named Goo"

I... will be watching over you
I... am gonna help you see it through
I... will protect you in the night
I'm smiling next to you
In Silent Lucidity

- Queensrÿche: Silent Lucidity
