Why fear death? Just because you know the song will end, is that any reason not to listen?
I'll publish, right or wrong: Fools are my theme, let satire be my Song.Rochdale
Tori Amos had a major influence on how I craft words in a Song . Until I heard 'Little Earthquakes' all my lyrics used really obvious analogies like rain for tears .
Thou wast not born for death, immortal Bird! No hungry generations tread thee down; The voice I hear this passing night was heard In ancient days by emperor and clown: Perhaps the self-same Song that found a path Through the sad heart of Ruth, when, sick for home, She stood in tears amid the alien corn; The same that oft-times hath Charm’d magic casements, opening on the foam Of perilous seas, in faery lands forlorn.john keats
Sweet bird! thy bower is ever green, Thy sky is ever clear; Thou hast no sorrow in thy Song, No winter in thy year.john logan
Once I sat upon a promontory, And heard a mermaid, on a dolphin's back, Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath, That the rude sea grew civil at her Song .william shakespeare
I sing the hymn of the conquered, who fell in the battle of life, The hymn of the wounded, the beaten who died overwhelmed in the strife; Not the jubilant Song of the victors for whom the resounding acclaim Of nations was lifted in chorus whose brows wore the chaplet of fame, But the hymn of the low and the humble, the weary, the broken in heart, Who strove and who failed, acting bravely a silent and desperate part.william wetmore story
I'm too depressed to go on, You'll be sorry when I'm gone.Blink-182
Only reapers, reaping early In among the bearded barley, Hear a Song that echoes cheerly From the river winding clearly, Down to towered Camelot.Tennyson
His goodness stands approved,Unchanged from day to day;I'll drop my burden at His feet,And bear a Song away.Philip Doddridge
I just wanted to pay tribute to him and talk about the situation." When asked if it was a conscious thing to give an eastern flavor to the Song, Sheik says "Definitely... I know that he was, like, a big fan of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and he was listening to a lot of that kind of music. There's also just a really mournful quality to that kind of string playing." Sheik says, "I wanted to send him off and say a few things about how much his music moved me and other people.jeff buckley
There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run And the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun Long before the white man and long before the wheel When the green dark forest was too silent to be real... Oh! The Song of the future has been sung All the battles have been won On the mountain tops we stand All the world at our command We have opened up the soil with our teardrops and our toilgordon lightfoot
The songwriting style, to me, is superior... there was a certain amount of joy in it, no matter how sad the Song is. You get joy in listening to these Buddy Holly or Roy Orbison sad lyrics. I'm attracted to songs that have balance between the darks and the lights and giving them all equal opportunity.m. ward
I wrote a little Song for you With a melody I'd borrowed put to words that didn't rhyme To repeat what you already knew; As the stones thrown at your window tapped in syncopation, You kept a distance out of fear you'd break, But what good's a single windchime, hanging quiet all alone?aaron weiss
Builders, raise the ceiling high, Raise the dome into the sky, Hear the wedding Song! For the happy groom is near, Tall as Mars, and statelier, Hear the wedding Song!
