    Hold your tongue, my daughter dear
    Be still and be content
    For there's men enough in Galloway
    You need not so lament

    Oh there's men enough in Galloway
    Alas, there's none for me
    For I never had a love but one
    And he's drowned in the sea
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Brant Bjork - Too Many Chiefs

    Oh in the sun he hides from you
    Cause you smile and then you tell him lies
    But the boy always knew
    That they'd choke upon his pride
    And as the greed eats his sand
    Turns to stone all that lived
    And all he builds is made by hand
    And the love and the love he always gives
    Oh when they look in to his eyes
    They just wont leave him alone
    C'mon leave him alone
    And he knows you're not that blind
    He knows you too well
    Just choose not to see
    He only knows whats beating in his heart
    So he never speaks his mind
    But he says his prayers and tries so motherfucking hard
    You know he does everyday
    And the lord says give it time
    Or check it out bro i'll fucking try
    Oh when they look in to his eyes
    But they just wont leave him alone
    C'mon please leave him alone
    And he knows they're not that blind
    You're not that blind he knows you too well
    You just choose not to see
    What a shame

    Stop
    Red lights in the distance
    You never been to that district they reference
    Trunk full of hashish and mescaline
    Your mind is a mess and this bitch is undressin'

    A)
    Mash on the throttle like a G
    Put a bottle to your teeth
    Say fuck it, you're a free man

    B)
    Pull over to the side of the street,
    Keep your hand on the shotty sitting up under the seat, or

    C)
    Let the cop pull you over say something slick,
    On some Jay-Z "99 Problems"-type shit

    D)
    All of the above in your head,
    but it really doesn't matter cause you already dead.

    No obituaries for the most part
    Nobody cares, you are not even a co-star
    Just an extra
    They read about it as a number --
    Names got money in their wallet.

    The Honey Trees-Orchard

    You were the coal
    She was the fire
    That warmed your skin
    And all within
    Memories to hold
    Her trembling fingers
    Held all they'd known
    As she went on

    Oh, sweet orchard
    Shade the growing light
    Holding softly to my weary eyes

    Thousands of all
    Hunger inside
    These withering eyes
    Too tired to cry
    A face, hiding so silently
    Burns to know
    The love that grows here

    Oh, sweet orchard
    Let forgiving strands of light
    Break my silence
    Burn the night
    Oh, sweet waters
    Flow with love for me inside
    Cast me quietly unto morning's light

    Oh, burn through the night, burn
    Oh, love burn through the night

    Sleeping At Last-Joy

    It is the calm water
    In the middle of an anxious sea.
    Where heavy clouds part and the sunrise starts
    A fire in the deepest part of me.
    So I let go and in this moment, I can breathe.

    The clumsy start of adolescence,
    The glue that mends our broken remnants,
    An overwhelming sense of reverence,
    It's a glimpse of light in a mine of gold.

    A silver lining spilling over,
    The rumor of buried treasure,
    The starting line of an adventure,
    It's a glimpse of light in a mine of gold.

    It's an afterglow, it's an echo
    Still ringing out in spite of me.
    It's the faint outline of the divine
    In the hiding place of my periphery.
    So I let go and in this moment, I can breathe.
    I can breathe.

    The setting sun through open windows,
    The honoring of every shadow,
    A gratitude for all that follows,
    It's a glimpse of light in a mine of gold.

    The countless stars we're sleeping under,
    It's the brightest sparks that we remember.
    When our eyes are closed, we still see embers,
    A glimpse of light in a mine of gold.
    It's a glimpse of light in a mine of gold.

    Paper Aeroplane Sail

    All I ever wanted was to stay
    But I fell outside your consciousness for days
    Drove across a desert full of rain
    Watching as the landscape underneath us changed

    We are brokenhearted now
    We were all full starts and doubt
    I'll be the one who finds me out
    When your ship comes in, to let it sail is the hardest thing

    Every little line upon your face
    I could crawl into and hibernate for days
    The sun came and shone into the space
    Growing up like ivy edges scrapped away

    We are brokenhearted now
    We were all full starts and doubt
    I'll be the one who finds me out
    When your ship comes in, to let it sail is the hardest thing
    To let it sail is the hardest thing

    Bob Dylan - A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

    Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
    Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
    I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains,
    I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways,
    I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests,
    I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans,
    I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard,
    And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard,
    And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

    Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
    Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
    I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
    I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
    I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin',
    I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin',
    I saw a white ladder all covered with water,
    I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,
    I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children,
    And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

    And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son?
    And what did you hear, my darling young one?
    I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin',
    Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world,
    Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blazin',
    Heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin',
    Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin',
    Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter,
    Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley,
    And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

    Oh, who did you meet, my blue-eyed son?
    Who did you meet, my darling young one?
    I met a young child beside a dead pony,
    I met a white man who walked a black dog,
    I met a young woman whose body was burning,
    I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow,
    I met one man who was wounded in love,
    I met another man who was wounded with hatred,
    And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

    Oh, what'll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
    Oh, what'll you do now, my darling young one?
    I'm a-goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a-fallin',
    I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest,
    Where the people are many and their hands are all empty,
    Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters,
    Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison,
    Where the executioner's face is always well hidden,
    Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
    Where black is the color, where none is the number,
    And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it,
    And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it,
    Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin',
    But I'll know my song well before I start singin',
    And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
    Funny - I noticed the thread and was going to post these, then they're first up. I think this was maybe the finest thing Dylan ever wrote. maybe the closest he came to being mentioned in the same breath as Leonard Cohen.

    God I love lyrics this is my kind of thread.
    pale September- Fiona apple
    Pale September
    I wore the time
    Like a dress that year
    The autumn days
    Swung soft around me
    Like cotton on my skin
    But as the embers
    Of the summer
    Lost their breath
    And disappearred
    My heart went cold and
    Only hollow rhythms
    Resounded from within
    But then he rose
    Brilliant as the moon in full
    And sank in the
    Burrows of my keep
    And all my armour
    Falling down
    In a pile at my feet
    And my winter giving
    Way to warm
    As I'm singing him to sleep
    He goes along just
    As a water lily
    Gentle on the surface
    Of his thoughts
    His body floats
    Unweighed down by
    Passion or intensity
    Yet unaware of the
    Depth upon which he coasts
    And he finds a home in me
    For what misfortune sows
    He knows my touch will reap
    And all my armour
    Falling down
    In a pile at me feet
    And my winter giving
    Way to warm
    As I'm singing him to sleep
    All my armour
    Falling down
    In a pile at my feet
    And my winter giving
    Way to warm
    As I'm singing him to sleep

    I want you - third eye blind
    The suckers loose themselves
    In the games they learn to play
    Children love to sing but
    Then their voices slowly fade away
    People always take a step away
    From what is true
    That's why I like you around
    I want you
    Oh you do you do...
    You make me want you
    An open invitation to the dance
    Happenstance set the vibe that we are in
    No apology because my urge is genuine
    And the mystery of your rhythm is so feminine
    Here I am and I want to take a hit
    Of your scent cause it bit so deep into my soul
    I want you
    Yeah, you do you do...
    You make me want you
    Oh you do you do...
    Send me all your vampires
    I want you
    And I can't get enough, oh I can't get enough
    And I can't get enough
    The village church yard is filled with
    Bones weeping in the grave
    The silver lining of clouds
    Shines on people Jesus couldn't save
    You want to know how deeply my soul goes
    Deeper than bones
    Deeper than bones
    And I can't get enough
    Oh, I can't get enough
    Oh, I can't get enough
    Oh, I can't get enough
    After we did it by the window sill
    Smoke rings drift into the midnight sky
    Presently in the quilt that your mother made
    A candle burns to fight off the gloom
    I said to live in this way is not for the meek
    And like a jazz DJ you talk me into sleep
    I said there'll be no regrets when the worms come
    And they will surely come
    You do you do...
    Make me want you
    Send me all your vampires
    Yeah you do...
    Make me want you

    The Lunar Year Porcelain

    My brain is porcelain.
    I'm a contortionist
    I want to breathe you in
    As your light breathes

    Like wine and lilac
    Betrothed inside your veins.
    Your bones are verdant and fair
    I would die without you.

    My brain is porcelain.
    I'm a contortionist
    A fiend of circumstance,
    I break at zeal's first glance.
    My vice is my own mind
    I would die without you.

    You dress my loveless spine
    and braid my muzzled hair
    You rip my heart in two
    I would die without you
    I would die without you.

    My brain is porcelain
    My brain is porcelain...
