hi,
AS we all know, River was passionate about music and many of his fave
bands ( beatles, led zeppelin, xtc, the smiths etc ) deliver many
messages through their lyrics. Many lyrics are meaningful and raise
our thoughts and conscious. It will be interesting to know which
songtexts and lyrics mean something special for you or inspires you
in some ways?
Here´s the one which inspires me the most: ( I wish that somedays
this dream will come true )
Imagine by John Lennon
Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Deb

Hi Debbie,
I love the song Imagine by John Lennon also. I would say that
Everybody Hurts by R.E.M. has some inspiring lyrics
also. "Waterfalls" by TLC is a pretty powerful song too. I'll
just write some lyrics to 'Waterfalls' :
Lonely mother gazin' out of the window
staring at a son that she just can't touch
If, at any time, he's in a jam, she'll be by his side
but he doesn't realize he hurts her so much.
But all her prayin' just ain't helpin' at all
Cuz he can't seem to keep himself out of trouble
so he's goes and makes his money the best way he knows how
another body layin' cold in the gutter
Listen to me...
Don't go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to
I know that you're gonna have your way or nothing at all
but I think you're moving too fast.

these are just some lyrics to waterfalls by TLC.
Another song that has a lot of meaning to me is "Remember Me This
Way' by Jordan Hill.

thanks, Debbie and have a good day.
luv,
Shirl

Hi Debbie and Shirl,
I also like Everybody Hurts by R.E.M, I love watching the video and
reading people's thoughts, and Debs, when I read Imagine, I liked
the lyrics so much, I'm downloading it now.
A song I heard today that reminded me of this thread is Peace on
Earth by U2, here are the lyrics:

Peace On Earth Lyrics
By U2

Heaven on Earth, we need it now
I'm sick of all of this hanging around
Sick of sorrow, sick of the pain
I'm sick of hearing again and again
That there's gonna be peace on Earth

Where I grew up
There weren't many trees
Where there was, we'd tear them down
And use them on our enemies

They say that what you mock
Will surely overtake you
And you become a monster
So the monster will not break you

And it's already gone too far
Who said that if you go in hard, you won't get hurt?
Jesus, can you take the time
To throw a drowning man a line?
Peace on Earth

Tell the ones who hear no sound
Whose sons are living in the ground
Peace on Earth
No whos or whys
No one cries, like a mother cries
For peace on Earth
She never got to say goodbye
To see the colour in his eyes
Now he's in the dirt
Peace on Earth

They're reading names out over the radio
All the folks, the rest of us won't get to know
Sean and Julia, Garreth, Ann and Breda
Their lives are bigger than any big idea

Jesus, can you take the time
To throw a drowning man a line?
Peace on Earth
To tell the ones who hear no sound
Whose sons are living in the ground
Peace on Earth

Jesus, in the song you wrote
The words are sticking in my throat
Peace on Earth
Hear it every Christmas time
But hope and history won't rhyme
So, what's it worth?
This peace on Earth

Peace on Earth
Peace on Earth
Peace on Earth

Mona

Hey Shirl & Mona,
Thanks for posting REM & U2´s lyrics.
I love everybody hurts and peace on earth a lot. Both are fantastic
bands which had written many great lyrics.
Mellie, I haven´t heard " 100 years by 5 for Fighting" before. Would
you like to post the lyric here?
Heres another lyric which I like a lot:

Friends by Led Zeppelin

Bright light almost blinding, black night still there shining,
I can't stop, keep on climbing, looking for what I knew.

Had a friend, she once told me, "You got love, you ain't lonely,"
Now she's gone and left me only looking for what I knew.

Mmm, I'm telling you now, The greatest thing you ever can do now,
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now, It's very easy just...

Met a man on the roadside crying, without a friend, there's no
denying,
You're incomplete, they'll be no finding looking for what you knew.

So anytime somebody needs you, don't let them down, although it
grieves you,
Some day you'll need someone like they do, looking for what you knew.

Mmm, I'm telling you now, The greatest thing you ever can do now,
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now, It's very easy just...


Hugs,
Deb
