Dass es Künstler gibt, die mehr als nur "I Love You" oder "Take My Heart" zum Besten geben, wissen wohl alle. In vielen Texten sind richtige Perlen versteckt, die schon fast literarischen Wert haben. Ich habe mich mal auf die Suche nach Songtexten gemacht und bin auf eine sehr gute Website gestossen. Einige der schönsten Songpassagen habe ich mal rausgepickt, wer Lust hat, findet hier noch mehr:
of us get lost in the darkness, dreamers learn to steer by the stars.
honest man's pillow is his peace of mind.
ask me what I think of you, I might not give the answer that you want me to.
new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.
many ears must one man have before he can hear people cry? Yes, and how many deaths will
it take 'til he knows that too many people have died?
rather be a hammer than a nail.
we were blind and had no choice, would we hate each other by the tone of our voice?
you smile at me I will understand, cause that is something everybody everywhere does in
the same language.
better to burn out, than to fade away.
matter what you do, you'll never run away from you.
die on our feet, than keep living on our knees.
old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea. All we do, crumbles to the ground though
we refuse to see, dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind.
me dead flowers to my wedding and I won't forget to put roses on your grave.
words of the prophets are written on the subway walls.
one year you find ten years have gotten behind, no one told you when to run, you missed
the starting gun.
learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school.
just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl year after year.
better start swimming or sink like a stone, cause the times they are a-changing.
bought a guitar to punish your Mom.
woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.
leads to a very rough road, but it also breeds creation.
the people grow colder, I turn to my computer and spend my evenings with it like a friend.
go changing to try to please me, you never let me down before.
on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and
got a smile inside, so put it on your face and wear it with pride.
your age and not your shoe size.
once in a moment, it all comes to you. As soon as you get it, you want something new.
reach the sea, if you can't get past the sand. Can't touch the sky, if you can't reach up
your hand. Can't give, if you give nothing back.
have a point of view, knows not where he is going to, isn't he a bit like you and me?
ever wish you were someone else, you were meant to be the way you are exactly.
rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.
know the good old days weren't always good and tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems.
and roll just used to be for kicks, now a days it's politics.
