Patty (aracataka) | 13 comments What words in a song(s) have truly touched you? For me it is a phrase in "Breathe" by Pink Floyd: "All you touch and all you see,Is all your life will ever be." The whole song is just AMAZING!! But...those are the words I love the most!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fx6iIp...


Carol Cork *Young at Heart Oldie* (httpsrakesandrascalswordpresscom) For me, it is "Unbreakable" by Westlife. The whole song is beautiful but I particularly like the following:

"Swept away on a wave of emotion
Overcaught in the eye of the storm
And whenever you smile
I can hardly believe that you're mine
Believe that you're mine"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hm2i1w...

Amanda M. Lyons (amandamlyons) Tons of examples of this is music for me. I'll have to come back with a list.


 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) I think a lot of Sting's lyrics really get to me.

He's a good songwriter.

I could name a bunch of his songs as example:

Book of My Days
A Thousand Years
Straight to My Heart
I Burn for You
Desert Rose
When We Dance

Randi (The Artist Formerly known as Guitar Chick) (guitarchick) | 328 comments Pretty much anyrthing by Heart, Patti Rothberg, Led Zeppelin, and some others can be use for awesome quotes.


message 9: by Patty (new)

Patty (aracataka) | 13 comments Yes! Zeppelin & Heart are great and from Patti R I just love the following:
"My oh my
Don't you even try
To make sense of all you see
The devil loves a double standard
And heaven isn't selling cheap"

Gotta love that!

Sting -- Russians

We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
What might save us, me, and you
Is if the Russians love their children too
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rk78e...

Sting -- Shape Of My Heart

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX4jAp...

Sting -- Seven Days

Monday, I could wait till Tuesday
If I make up my mind
Wednesday would be fine, Thursday's on my mind
Friday'd give me time, Saturday could wait
But Sunday'd be too late
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=920BnH...

Sting -- Fragile

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are
How fragile we are how fragile we are
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCUtBZ...

Sting -- Fortress Around Your Heart

And if I built this fortress around your heart
Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
Then let me build a bridge
For I cannot fill the chasm
And let me set the battlements on fire
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Gd0cv...

Sting -- Why Should I Cry For You

But would north be true?
Why should I?
Why should I cry for you?
Dark angels follow me
Over a godless sea
Mountains of endless falling,
For all my days remaining,

What would be true?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHhZKS...

Sting -- If I Ever Lose My Faith In You

If I ever lose my faith in you
There'd be nothing left for me to do

I could be lost inside their lies without a trace
But every time I close my eyes I see your face
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ma6Tng...

Mariah Carey -- My All

I'd give my all to have
Just one more night with you
I'd risk my life to feel
Your body next to mine
'Cause I can't go on
Living in the memory of our song
I'd give my all for your love tonight
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SvA90...

Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston -- When You Believe

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxIN79...

Mariah Carey -- Without You

Well I can't forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way
The story goes
You always smile but in your eyes
Your sorrow shows
Yes it shows
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcmy6C...

Mariah Carey -- Hero

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IA3Zv...

Mariah Carey;Boyz II Men -- One Sweet Day

And I know you're shining down on me from Heaven.
Like so many friends we've lost along the way.
And I know eventually we'll be together.
One sweet day.
Sorry, I Never told you, all I wanted to say
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXxRyN...

Mariah Carey -- Butterfly

Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun

If you should return to me
We truly were meant to be
So spread your wings and fly
Butterfly
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stcdNj...

Mariah Carey -- Looking In

It seems as though I've always been

Somebody outside looking in
Well, here I am for all of them to bleed
But they can't take my heart from me
And they can't bring me to my knees
They'll never know the real me

Lori - these are great. Had never heard Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston -- When You Believe. Loved it!

I love Mariah Carey. If i had to pick one female singer to listen to everyday it would be her. She's kind of a goof ball and sometimes she says some off the wall shit, but she can sing her ass off. And she's so pretty, even when she gains 20 or 30 pounds. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her!!! :) I had all of her Cd's, (not the best of or christmas) and now i'm missing 3 of them. And quite a few others, as far as missing Cd's go. The gossip is she's going to have a baby!!!


message 15: by Lonnie (last edited Jul 29, 2010 06:48PM) (new)

Lonnie multiple Roger Clyne and the Peacemaker songs but specifically Your Name On a Grain of Rice and the line: What good is my love song... if you ain't around to here it?

Poignant!

Wow...RCPM!! The one line that really gets to me is: "An empty heart is the heaviest weight to hold" from "Love, Come Lighten My Load".


message 17: by Lonnie (new)

Lonnie Finally an RCPM fan!!!! Yeah!!!

Patty, I have been dropping RCPM all over this board. You should look for them and add some insight. How long have you been a fan? Seen them lately?


message 18: by Dana * (new)

Dana * (queenofegypt) My favorite lyrics come from Sting, Chris Isaak, and The Eagles.

Look at us baby, up all night
Tearing our love apart
Aren't we the same two people who live
through years in the dark?
Ahh...
Every time I try to walk away
Something makes me turn around and stay
And I can't tell you why

When we get crazy,
it just ain't to right,
(try to keep you head, little girl)
Girl, I get lonely, too
You don't have to worry
Just hold on tight
(don't get caught in your little world)
'Cause I love you
Nothing's wrong as far as I can see
We make it harder than it has to be
and I can't tell you why

I don't know when I realized the dream was over
Well, there was no particular hour, no given day
You know, it didn't go down in flame
There was no final scene, no frozen frame
I just watched it slowly fade away

And I've been waiting in the weeds
Waiting for my time to come around again and
Hope is floating on the breeze
Carrying my soul high up above the ground and
I've been keepin' to myself
Knowin' that the seasons are slowly changing
Even though you're with somebody else
He'll never love you like I do

Her mother, her father
Never showed her any affection at all
I wonder if it hurts her now
Now that it's too late they call

I told her I'd be there
It's easy to say what you want to believe
I told her I'd love her
And now that it's too late I see

I let her down
It's true
I let her down

So helpless, pretending
Hoping that somehow somebody would see
So desperate for someone
I guess that she thought that someone was me

Only the lonely, know this feeling ain't right.

There goes my baby, there goes my heart, they're gone forever, they're so far apart.
But only the lonely, know why I cry. Only the lonely, only the lonely

Chris Isaak's cover of Onley the Lonely is pretty good but I still prefer the orignal. Roy Orbison has a 'haunted soul' sound to his voice.

Sultry Chris Isaak words always get to me - no matter what time of day! Hits me raw!! And Sting & Eagles are true poets!


message 22: by Lonnie (new)

Lonnie it was Lonnie who commented but... you should see them again when they come near you. The new lead guitarist (Jim Dalton) is so much better and a nicer guy than Steve Larson.

Fiona Apple -- Never Is A Promise

You'll say you understand, you'll never understand
I'll say I'll never wake up knowing how or why
I don't know what to believe in, you don't know who I am
You'll say I need appeasing when I start to cry
But never is a promise and I'll never need a lie
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5XptS...

Fiona Apple -- Shadowboxer

Oh it's so evil, my love
The way you've no reverence to my concern
So I'll be sure to stay wary of you, love
To save the pain of once my flame and twice my burn
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnXjIS...

Toni Braxton -- Un-break My Heart

Take back that sad word good-bye
Bring back the joy to my life
Don't leave me here with these tears
Come and kiss that pain away
I can't forget the day you left
Time is so unkind
And life is so cruel without you here beside me
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2Rch6...

Toni Braxton -- You’re Makin Me High

I want to feel your heart and soul inside of me
Let's make a deal you roll, I lick
And we can go flying into ecstasy
Oh Darlin' you and me
Light my fire
Blow my flame
Take me, take me, take me away
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggULcg...

Gretchen Wilson -- Good Morning Heartache

Good morning heartache
Here we go again
Good morning heartache
You're the one who knew me when
Might as well get used to you hanging round
Good morning heartache sit down
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhrvt1...

Gretchen Wilson -- I Don't Feel Like Loving You Today

But you know I will anyway,
Even though we make it hard sometimes.
I'll wind up forgiving you and probably loving you,
For the rest of my life.
But I don't feel like loving you today.

I just don't feel like loving you today.

Yeah i was going to do that one, but i couldn't find a video that was good.


message 27: by Amanda (new)

Amanda M. Lyons (amandamlyons) There’s tons more but I already took up a ton of room:

Peter Gabriel "In Your Eyes"

love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zrzr4R...

Hurt “Alone With the Sea”


Because i've strangely become immune
To the thought of seeing you
And the smell of cheap perfume
With all the liquor i've consumed
There's no more beauty in this
There's no more beauty in this
There's no more beauty in this world
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YC3oIL...

Symphony of Science “ We Are All Connected”
Sagan:
The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it
But the way those atoms are put together
The cosmos is also within us
We're made of star stuff
We are a way for the cosmos to know itself
Across the sea of space
The stars are other suns
We have traveled this way before
And there is much to be learned
I find it elevating and exhilarating
To discover that we live in a universe
Which permits the evolution of molecular machines
As intricate and subtle as we
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGK84P...

VAST “Touched”
touched, you say that i am too
so much, of what you say is true
i'll never find some quite like you again
i'll never find some quite like you, like you
the razors and the dying roses
plead i don't leave you alone
the demi-gods and hungry ghosts
oh god, god knows i'm not at home
i'll never find someone quite like you again
i'll never find someone quite like you again
i, i looked into your eyes and saw
a world that does not exist
i looked into your eyes and saw
a world i wish i was in
i'll never find some quite as touched as you
i'll never love some quite the way
that I loved you

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8S_R13...


The Tea Party “Psychopomp”

You wanted this
So sad to see
The sweet decay
Of ecstasy
And you want it all
And you want it all
A frozen sun,
Would guide you there
As shadows hide
The deep despair
And you want it all
I'll give you something more
And you'll fade away
One last kiss before
You fade away.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMZoia...

Depeche Mode “In Your Room”
In your room
Where time stands still
Or moves at your will
Will you let the morning come soon
Or will you leave me lying here
In your favorite darkness
Your favorite half light
Your favorite consciousness
Your favorite slave
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5qmK6...

Depeche Mode “Only When I Lose Myself”
Something beautiful is happening inside for me
Something sensual, it's full of fire and mystery
I feel hypnotized, I feel paralyzed
I have found heaven
There's a thousand reasons
Why I should not spent my time with you
For every reason not to be here I can think of two
Keep me hanging on
Feeling nothing's wrong
Inside your heaven
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l35XzU...


Tori Amos “Silent All These Years”
I got something to say you know
But nothing comes
Yes I know what you think of me
You never shut-up
Yeah I can hear that
But what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his
With her name still on it
Hey but I don't care
Cause sometimes
I said sometimes
I hear my voice
And it's been here
Silent All These Years
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42jcad...

Tori Amos "Black-Dove (January)"

She was a january girl
She never let on how insane it was
In that tiny kinda scary house
By the woods
By the woods
By the woods

Bette Midler “The Rose”
Some say love it is a river
that drowns the tender reed
Some say love it is a razor
that leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love it is a hunger
an endless aching need
I say love it is a flower
and you it's only seed

It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of wakingthat never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
and the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love
in the spring
becomes the rose
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR6okR...

U2 “All I Want is You”
You say you want your love to work out right
To last with me through the night
You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold
Your love not to grow cold
All the promises we break
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you
Bronski Beat “ Smalltown Boy”
And the answer you seek
Will never be found at home
Pushed around and kicked around
Always a lonely boy
You were the one
That they'd talk about around town
As they put you down
And as hard as they would try
They'd hurt to make you cry
But you'd never cry to them
Just to your soul
No you'd never cry to them
Just to your soul
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N41gOP...
Moody Blues ‘Nights in White Satin”
Nights in white satin
Never reaching the end
Letters I’ve written
Never meaning to send
Beauty I’ve always missed
With these eyes before
Just what the truth is
I can’t say anymore
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPg3_3...

Bruce Springsteen ‘I’m On Fire”
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
Im on fire
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrpXAr...

Andrew Lloyd Weber “memory”
Memory
All alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-L6rE...

Elvis Presley ‘Mama Liked the Roses”
Oh, mama liked the roses she grew them in the yard
But Winter always came around and made the growing way too hard
Oh, mama liked the roses and when she had the time
She'd decorate the living room, for all us kids to see
When I hear the Sunday bells ringing in the morning
I remember crying when she used to sing
Oh, mama liked the roses but most of all she cared
About the way we learned to live
And if we said our prayers

You know I kept the family bible
With a rose that she saved inside
It was pressed between the pages
Like it had found a place to hide

Oh, mama liked the roses in such a special way
We bring them every Mother's Day
And put them on her grave
Oh, mama liked the roses Mmmm
Mama liked the roses
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mua1j9...

Righteous Brothers “Unchained Melody”
Oh my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long lonely time,
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much,
Are you still mine?
I need your love,
I need your love
God speed your love to me.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwXzpT...
Patrick Swayze – She’s Like the Wind
She's like the wind through my tree
She rides the night next to me
She leads me through moonlight
Only to burn me with the sun
She's taken my heart
But she doesn't know what she's done

Feel her breath on my face
Her body close to me
Can't look in her eyes
She's out of my league
Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She's like the wind

[SOLO:]

I look in the mirror and all I see
Is a young old man with only a dream
Am I just fooling myself
That she'll stop the pain
Living without her
I'd go insane

Feel her breath on my face
Her body close to me
Can't look in her eyes
She's out of my league
Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She's like the wind

Feel your breath on my face
Your body close to me
Can't look in your eyes
You're out of my league
Just a fool to believe
(Just a fool to believe)
She's like the wind
(Just a fool to believe)
Just a fool to believe
(She's like the wind)
Just a fool to believe
(Just a fool to believe)
She's like the wind
(Just a fool to believe)
Just a fool to believe
She's like the wind

(Just a fool...)
(She's like the wind)
(She's like the wind)
(Just a fool...)
(She's like the wind)
(Just a fool...)

Annie Lennox - Love Song For A Vampire
Come into these arms again
and lay your body down
The rhythm of this trembling heart
is beating like a drum
It beats for you it bleeds for you
it knows not how it sounds
For it is the drum of drums
it is the song of songs
Once I had the rarest rose
that ever deemed to bloom
Cruel winter chilled the bud
and stole my flower too soon
Oh loneliness Oh hopelessness
to search the ends of time
For there is in all the world
no greater love than mine.
Love o love o .... still falls the rain
Love o love o .... still falls the night
Love o love o .... damned forever
Let me be the only one
to keep you from the cold
Now the floor of heaven is laid
the stars are bright as gold
They shine for you they shine for you
they burn for all to see
Come into these arms again
and set this spirit free
Eurythmics – here comes the rain again
Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
(Here is comes again, here it comes again)
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

Cyndi Lauper – All Through the Night
All through the night
I'll be awake and I'll be with you
All through the night
This precious time when time is new
Oh, all through the night today
Knowing that we feel the same without saying

We have no past we won't reach back
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwkUY7...

Sinead O’conner – Troy


I'll remember it
And Dublin in a rainstorm
And sitting in the long grass in summer
Keeping warm
I'll remember it
Every restless night
We were so young then
We thought that everything
We could possibly do was right
Then we moved
Stolen from our very eyes
And I wondered where you went to
Tell me when did the light die
You will rise
You'll return
The phoenix from the flame
You will learn
You will rise
You'll return
Being what you are
There is no other Troy
For you to burn
And I never meant to hurt you
I swear I didn't mean
Those things I said
I never meant to do that to you
Next time I'll keep my hands to myself instead
Oh, does she love you
What do you want to do?
Does she need you like I do?
Do you love her?
Is she good for you?
Does she hold you like I do?
Do you want me?
Should I leave?
I know you're always telling me
That you love me
Just sometimes I wonder
If I should believe
Oh, I love you
God, I love you
I'd kill a dragon for you
I'll die
But I will rise
And I will return
The Phoenix from the flame
I have learned
I will rise
And you'll see me return
Being what I am
There is no other Troy
For me to burn
And you should've left the light on
You should've left the light on
Then I wouldn't have tried
And you'd never have known
And I wouldn't have pulled you tighter
No I wouldn't have pulled you close
I wouldn't have screamed
No I can't let you go
And the door wasn't closed
No I wouldn't have pulled you to me
No I wouldn't have kissed your face
You wouldn't have begged me to hold you
If we hadn't been there in the first place
Ah but I know you wanted me to be there oh oh
Every look that you threw told me so
But you should've left the light on
You should've left the light on
And the flames burned away
But you're still spitting fire
Make no difference what you say
You're still a liar
You're still a liar
You're still a lawyer

Amanda M. Lyons (amandamlyons) Sinead O’Cooner – Three Babies
Each of these
My three babies
I will carry with me
For myself
I ask no one else will be
Mother to these three
And of course
I'm like a wild horse
But there's no other way I could be
Water and feed
Are not tools that I need
For the thing that I've chosen to be
In my soul
My blood and my bones
I have wrapped your cold bodies around me
The face on you
The smell of you
Will always be with me
Each of these
My three babies
I was not willing to leave
Though I tried
I blasphemed and denied
I know they will be returned to me
Each of these
My babies
Have brought you closer to me
No longer mad like a horse
I'm still wild but not lost
From the thing that I've chosen to be
And it's `cause you've thrilled me
Silenced me
Stilled me
Proved things I never believed
The face on you
The smell of you
Will always be with me
Each of these
My three babies
I will carry with me
For myself
I ask no one else will be
Mother to these three

Tattle Tale – Glass Vase Cello Case
Breathe into my hands
Or cup them like a glass to drink from;
Are you still,
still breathing.
Are you still,
breathing.
Are you still,
still breathing.
Are you still,
breathing.
Breathe into my hands
Or cup them like a glass to drink from

Placebo - "Song To Say Goodbye"

You are one of God's mistakes,
You crying, tragic waste of skin,
I'm well aware of how it aches ,
And you still won't let me in.
Now I'm breaking down your door,
To try and save your swollen face ,
Though I don't like you anymore,
You lying, trying waste of space..

Before our innocence was lost,
You were always one of those ,
Blessed with lucky sevens ,
And the voice that made me cry .
My Oh My.

You were mother nature's son ,
Someone to whom I could relate ,
Your needle and your damage done,
Remains a sordid twist of fate.
Now I'm trying to wake you up ,
To pull you from the liquid sky ,
Coz if I don't we'll both end up ,
With just your song to say goodbye.
My Oh My.

A song to say goodbye,
A song to say goodbye ,
A song to say...

Before our innocence was lost,
You were always one of those,
Blessed with lucky sevens,
And the voice that made me cry.

It's a song to say goodbye.

Youth Group – Forever Young (cover of alphaville song)
Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies
Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don't have the power, but we never say never
Sitting in a sand-pit, life is a short trip
The music's for the sad men.

Can you imagine when this race is run
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders, we're getting in tune
The music's played by the mad men

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody, some are the beat
Sooner or later they all be gone
Why don't they stay young?

It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
Youth is like diamonds in the sun
and diamonds are forever

So many adventures couldn't happen today
So many songs that we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?

Moby - The Sky Is Broken
see the storm is broken
in the middle of the night
nothing left here for me
it's washed away
the rain pushes
the buildings aside
the sky turns black
the sky
wash it far
push it out to sea
there's nothing left here
for me
i watch it lift up to the sky
i watch it crush me
and then i die
speak to me baby
in the middle of the night
pull your mouth
close to mine
i can see the wind coming down
like black night
so speak to me
like the winds outside
it's broken up, pushing us
hear the rain fall
see the wind come to my eyes
see the storm broken
now nothing
speak to me baby
in the middle of the night
speak to me
hold your mouth to mine
'cause the sky is breaking
it's deeper than love
i know the way you feel
like the rains outside
speak to me

Marts  (Thinker) (thinkersutopia) | 182 comments Here's that entire tune:

"And you're like a 90's jesus
And you revel in your psychosis
How dare you
And you sample concepts like hors d'euvres
And you eat their questions for dessert
Is it just me or is it hot in here?

And you're like a 90's kennedy
And you're really a million years old
You can't fool me
They'll throw opinions like rocks in riots
And they'll stumble around like hypocrites
Is it just me or is it dark in here?

Well you may never be or have a husband
You may never have or hold a child
You will learn to loose everything
We are temporary arrangements

And you're like a 90's noah
And they laughed at you as you packed all of your things
And they wonder why you're frustrated
And they wonder why you're so angry
And is it just me or are you fed up?


And may god bless you in your travels in your conquests and queries "

Robin (goodreadscomtriviagoddessl) I personally love the lyrics to the Rose by Bette Midler
The Rose
Some say love it is a river, that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower, and You its only seed.

It;s the heart, afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance
It's the dream, afraid of waking, that never takes a chance
It's the one who won't be taken, who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dyin' that never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely, and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow, lies the seed that with the suns love, in the spring becomes the rose.

i agree. he's a great wordsmith. Nothing like The Sun album has the most killer Sting tunes i believe. Very original and unique sound for the time.

Robin (goodreadscomtriviagoddessl) the lyrics I love are from Stings Fields of Gold Song, I love both the video and his lyrics.
Fields of Gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley, you'll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we walk in fields of gold.
So she took her love, for to gaze awhile. upon the fields of barley in his arms she fell as her hair came down, among the fields of gold. Will you stay with me, will you be my love, among the fields of barley. We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we lie in fields of gold.

Very poetic in my estimation.
