Sky Blue And Black Lyrics

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Song: Sky Blue And Black
Artist: Jackson Browne
Album: I'm Alive
Year: 1993

"The most important thing about that song to me is the expression of love in the face of, you know like, after the -- it's all -- after it's all over. It's a person still trying to keep a world that he experienced -- and that is gone. And it's -- and it's not a bad thing to do. It's like that song's a funeral -- it's really -- it's saying "you're all these things that I carry with me and I'll never stop looking for you in these other places. It's the most complete expression of love I could -- I could, I could find -- and uh, in myself. You can't ever have it so that it didn't happen, it wasn't there, you weren't, you know, there. And it's a way of -- it's part forgiveness and part, um, decision to go on loving cause loving -- loving is better than -- hating."

- Jackson Browne, on Sky Blue And Black

I'll Do Anything Lyrics

Song: I'll Do Anything
Artist: Jackson Browne
Album: I'm Alive
Year: 1993

You hold a life there in your hands
You probably don't know
Somehow your dreams became my plans
Somewhere long ago

Think about the things we've done and where we've been
Your touch made me a king
I don't want to live without your love again
I'll do anything

To make you see what I'm imagining
To know the pleasure your smile can bring
To keep the light from vanishing
I'll do anything

I'll Do AnythingCollapse )

Farther On Lyrics

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Title: Farther On
Artist: Jackson Browne
Album: Late For The Sky
Year: 1974

In my early years I hid my tears
And passed my days alone
Adrift on an ocean of loneliness
My dreams like nets were thrown

To catch the love that I'd heard of
In books and films and songs
Now there's a world of illusion and fantasy
In the place where the real world belongs

Still I look for the beauty in songs
To fill my head and lead me on
Though my dreams have come up torn and empty
As many times as love has come and gone

Farther OnCollapse )

The Load Out Lyrics

Title: The Load Out
Artist: Jackson Browne
Album: Running On Empty
Year: 1977

Now the seats are all empty
Let the roadies take the stage
Pack it up and tear it down

They're the first to come and last to leave
Working for that minimum wage
They'll set it up in another town...

For America Lyrics

Image hosting by Photobucket

Title: For America
Artist: Jackson Browne
Album: Lives In The Balance
Year: 1986

As if I really didn't understand
That I was just another part of their plan
I went off looking for the promise
Believing in the Motherland

From the comfort of a dreamer's bed
And the safety of my own head
I went out speaking of the future
While other people fought and bled
