Great lyrics [Nov. 5th, 2003|10:47 am]
[Current Mood |predatorylyric-posting]

I'm bored, so I was looking through some lyrics trying to find some good ones to post. The following are some of my favorite songs. It's not the same without the music, but you kind of get the idea.

Tracy Chapman--Talkin' Bout a Revolution
Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

While they’re standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what’s theirs

Don’t you know
You better run, run, run...
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run...

Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution

Cat Stevens--Angelsea

She moves like an angel
And seven evening stars
Dance through the window
Of her universal house

He voice a crystal echo
Lies humming in your soul
So patiently awaiting
For your ears to behold

She ripples on the water
Leaves diamonds on the shore
And fish from every distance
Watch her ocean cellar door
Her breath a warm fire
In every lovers heart
A mistress to magicians
And a dancer to the gods
And a dancer to the gods

Her clothes are made of rainbows
And twenty thousand tears
Shine through the spaces
Of her golden ochre hair
Ooh my babe i want you
And on my life i swear
My conscience will i follow you forever
If you meet me everywhere
Yes if you if you meet me everywhere

Cat Stevens--The Wind

I listen to the wind
To the wind of my soul
Where i'll end up well i think,
Only god really knows
I've sat upon the setting sun
But never, never never never
I never wanted water once
No, never, never, never

I listen to my words but
They fall far below
I let my music take me where
My heart wants to go
I swam upon the devil's lake
But never, never never never
I'll never make the same mistake
No, never, never, never
