favourite lyrics of lately

15 Feb

“I lit a thin green candle to make you jealous of me
But the room just filled up with mosquitoes
They heard that my body was free”
(Leonard Cohen, “One of Us Cannot Be Wrong”)

“We made some small talk. That’s where it should have stopped.”
(Bruce Springsteen, “Highway 29”)

“Don’t criticize what you can’t understand.”
(Bob Dylan, “The Times They Are A-Changin'”)

“If it ain’t fear that holds us
It’s fear that tears us down

Some grow weak in anger
Few grow weak in pain

Our Father loves you, always”
(Mandolin Orange, “Hey Adam”)

“You were a phonograph, I was a kid
I sat with an ear close, just listening

Well, time has a way of throwing it all in your face
The past, she is haunted, the future is laced
Heartbreak, ya know, drives a big black car
Swear I was in the back seat, just minding my own

The song in my head, well was all that I had”
(Gregory Alan Isakov, “Big Black Car”)
