Best lyrical line

Recommended Posts

Geeze 5 pages and not one mention of the greatest Lyrical band ever!!!

 

Led Zeppelin wrote some of the greatest lyrics of all time

 

Stairway to Heaven

 

There's a lady who's sure

All that glitters is gold

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

 

When she gets there she knows

If the stores are all closed

With a word she can get what she came for

 

There's a sign on the wall

But she wants to be sure

'Cause you know sometimes words have

Two meanings

 

In a tree by the brook

There's a songbird who sings

Sometimes all of our thoughts are

Misgiven

 

In my thoughts I have seen

Rings of smoke through the trees

And the voices of those

Who stand looking

 

And it's whispered that soon

If we all call the tune

Then the piper will lead us to reason

 

And a new day will dawn

For those who stand long

And the forests will

Echo with laughter

 

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow

Don't be alarmed now

It's just a spring clean

For the May queen

 

Yes, there are two paths you can go by

But in the long run

There's still time to change

The road you're on

 

Your head is humming and it won't go

In case you don't know

The piper's calling you to join him

 

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow?

And did you know

Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

 

Kashmir

 

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face

With stars to fill my dream.

I am a traveler of both time and space

To be where I have been.

 

To sit with elders of a gentle race

This world has seldom seen.

They talk of days for which they sit and wait

When all will be revealed.

 

Talk an' song from tongues of lilting grace

Whose sounds caress my ear.

But not a word I heard could I relate

The story was quite clear.

 

Oh pilot of the storm who leaves no trace

Like thoughts inside a dream

Who hid the path that led me to that place

Of yellow desert screen.

 

My shangri-la beneath the summer moon

I will return again.

Sure as the dust that floats high in June

When movin' through Kashmir.

 

Oh father of the four winds, fill my sails

'Cross the sea of years

With no provision but an open face

Along the straits of fear.

 

Achilles Last Stand

 

It was an April morning when they told us we should go

And as I turned to you, you smiled at me, how could we say no?

 

With all the fun to have, to live the dreams we always had

With all the songs to sing, when we at last return again

 

Sending off a glancing kiss, to those who claim they know

Below the streets that steam and hiss, the devil's in his hole

 

Oh to sail away, To sandy lands and other days

Oh to trust the dream, Hides inside and never seen.

 

Into the sun the south the north, at last the birds have flown

The shackles of commitment fell, in pieces on the ground

 

Oh to ride the wind, To tread the air above the din

Oh to laugh aloud, With dancing eyes we caught the crowds, yeah

 

To seek the man whose pointing hand, The giant step unfolds

To guide us from the curving path, That churns up into stone

 

If one bell should ring, in celebration for a king

So fast the heart should beat, As proud the head with heavy feet, yeah

 

Days went by when you and I, bathed in eternal summers glow

As far away and distant, Our mutual child did grow

 

Oh the sweet refrain, Soothes the soul and calms the pain

Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again

 

Wandering and wanderings, What place to rest the search

The mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth

 

Oh The mighty arms of Atlas,

Hold the heavens from the earth

From the earth... Earth...

 

No Quarter

 

Close the door, put out the light.

No, they won't be home tonight.

The snow falls hard and don't you know?

The winds of Thor are blowing cold.

They're wearing steel that's bright and true

They carry news that must get through, oooh

 

They choose the path where no-one goes.

 

They hold no quarter.

They hold no quarter.

 

Walking side by side with death

The devil mocks their every step

The snow drives back the foot that's slow

The dogs of doom are howling more

They carry news that must get through

To build a dream for me and you

 

They choose the path where no-one goes.

 

They hold no quarter.

They ask no quarter.

They hold no quarter.

They ask no quarter.

 

The pain, the pain without quarter.

They ask no quarter.

Yeah! Without quarter, quarter, yeah!

They need no quarter.

The dogs of doom are howling more!

I hear the dogs of doom are howling more!

 

Ten Years Gone

 

Then as it was, then again it will be

Though the course may change sometimes

Rivers always reach the sea

Flyin' the skies of fortune, each our separate ways

On the wings of maybe, downing birds of prey

Kind of makes me feel sometimes, didn't have to grow

But as the eagle leaves the nest, it's got so far to go

 

Changes fill my time, baby, that's alright with me

In the midst I think of you, and how it used to be

 

Did you ever really need somebody, And really need 'em bad

Did you ever really want somebody, The best love you ever had

Do you ever remember me, baby, did it feel so good

'Cause it was just the first time, And you knew you would

 

See the eyes now sparkle, Senses growing keen

Tasted love along the way, See your feathers preen

Kind of makes makes me feel sometimes, Didn't have to grow

We are eagles of one nest, The nest is in our soul

 

Vixen in my dreams, a great surprise to me

Never thought I'd see your face the way it used to be

Oh darlin', oh darlin'

 

I'm never gonna leave you. I never gonna leave

Holdin' on, ten years gone

Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone

Aiyyo, you betta flee hobbes, or get your head flown three blocks

L keep rapper's hearts pumpin like reeboks

And every year I gain clout and my name sprouts

Some brothers'd still be large if the crack never came out

I got the wild style, always been a foul child

My guns go poom-poom, and yo' guns go pow-pow

I'm known to have a hottie open, I keep the shottie smokin

Front and get half the bones in your body broken

And when it comes to gettin nookie I'm not a rookie

I got girls that make that chick toni braxton look like whoopie

I run with sturdy clicks I'm never hittin dirty chicks

Got thirty-five bodies, buddy don't make it thirty-six

Step to this you're good as gone, word is bond

I leave mics torn when I put it on

 

[kid capri]

[big l]

Nobody can take nuttin from big l but a loss chief

The last punk who fronted got a mouth full of false teeth

I'm known to gas a hottie and blast the shottie

Got more cash than gotti (you don't know? ) you betta ask somebody

Big l is a crazy brother, and I'm a lady lover

A smooth kid that'll run up in your baby mother

I push a slick benz, I'm known to hit skinz

And get endz and commit sins with sick friends

Cause I'm a money getter, also a honey hitter

You think you nice as me? ha ha, youse a funny nigga

I flows, so one of my shoes, wouldn't be clever to miss

I'm leavin competitors pissed

To tell you the truth, it gets no better than this

I'm catchin wreck to the break of dawn

And it's on, yo it's a must that I put it on

 

[kid capri]

Yeah, so put it on big l, put it on

[big l]

Peace to my homies in the gangsta lean, I see you when I get there

And it's a fact I keep a gat in my arm reach

I charm freaks and bomb geeks from here to palm beach

I'm puttin rappers in the wheelchair, big l is the villain

You still fear, cause I be hangin it hard and my shit is for real here

If you battle l you picked the wrong head

I smash mics like cornbread, you can't kill me I was born dead

And I'm known to pull steel trigs and kill pigs

I run with ill kids and real nigs who peel wigs

My rap's steady slammin, I keep a heavy cannon

It's a new sherriff in town, and it ain't reggie hammond

This is one of Tupac's best songs in terms of lyrics/story - Mama's just a lil girl:

 

[Verse 1: Tupac]

 

She was ..

Born A heavy set girl with pig tails and curls

A heart full of gold

Still it won't change the world

Though she could never understand why

Some underhanded plans, witnessed a man die

Was only 15

Should have been a beauty queen

Still see here crying by the caskets when here parents got killed

Little girl don't cry

'Coz even though they died

You can best believe they watching over thee from the sky

Never asked for this misery

But look at what you gettin'

It's a blessing in disguise

When you find out your pregnant

No money, no home

And even though you all alone

You'se got to do this on your own

So baby go on

I wish you luck

And if you need me, call

Just come to me and let me feed you all

I can understand

The way it feels when you fighting the world

Facing all this drama

When mama's just A little girl

 

[Chorus]

 

Mama

Don't know why

Mama's just a little girl

Given that she's a ??

Time ain't on her side

Mama's just a little girl

(Mama's just a little girl)

She gotta hold her head up high

 

[Verse 2: Tupac]

 

At 16 what a beautiful thing

The very essence of a jet black ebony queen

And who could tell she would get pregnant at an early age

She didn't listen, had sex

Watch her belly raise (hey)

Got violated by someone she dated

If this is fate I hate to see the seed she created

So we wait, though it takes time to build the body and the mind

She reclines 9 months

Then finally its time

What do we find?

A little grown boy a mind with a tortured soul

Addicted to a life of crime at no time of the growing stage

He learned his values on the streets at an early age

Watch for police

Don't come home (why)

'Coz mammas acting crazy

At the hospital

'Bout to have another baby

Like the rose from concrete

Grown within

Blessed with twins

How the hell can mamma raise 3 men

So we began a closest family

Such insanity

A happy home

For one act inhumanity

Plus mammas said the seed was corrupted

Used the rubber belly

Begging us to breathe if she love us

Now mamma sits quiet

Sipping peppermint schnapps

Turned the house into a spot and made her watch for cops (hey)

How could mamma bring a thug like me into this world?

She ain't the cause of all the drama

Cause mommas just a little girl

 

[Chorus]

 

Mama

Don't know why

Mama's just a little girl

Liven if she is or not

Time ain't on her side

Cause ama's just a little girl

(Mama's just a little girl)

She gotta hold her head up high

(How could she raise us)

 

[Verse 3: Tupac]

 

Now

Would she remain in the same spot?

The gunshots rang, they came from the cane spot

Now look here

I see her clutching her son

In her arms she hurt

Her heart bleeding as she watched her seed die in the dirt

Fulfill prophecy

But who could stop the grief?

I walk around trying to hold the world up on top me

Probably be an innocent man

But still I'm the victim of a curse

What could be worse?

Nothing but pain

Since my birth, taught me functions at the pen

Cause everybody's in paying back society

I'm guilty of a life of sin

I watched the drama occur

My eyes blurred 'fore I jet it

I wonder why we all have to die for we get it

Though we shed tears

So many peers I done buried

Worried and scared

Knowing I'ma see the cemetery

Must be prepared in this cold world

No-one cares

No it ain't fair

But we all there

And do our share

In this land of underhanded schemes and plans

Vivid dreams of a nigga having g's in hand

Mamma told me not to be a punk

F*ck what you talking about coward

What you n*ggas want?

Changes - Tupac

 

And still I see no changes. Can't a brother get a little peace?

There's war on the streets & the war in the Middle East.

Instead of war on poverty,

they got a war on drugs so the police can bother me.

Hilltop hoods have some of my favs

 

Dumb enough -

 

It’s a comedy festival; they’re so unintelligible,

Can’t work out if they got peas for brains, or they’re just vegetables,

It’s sounds pathetic as me being anorexic,

I do damage like a paralytic, paramedic with no anaesthetic,

Girls shake my hand, guys want to hug me it’s a worry,

If I forgot your name I’m sorry, you’re probably pretty ugly

 

I’ll make origami of your lyrics,

Geez that’s good Suffa, what is it?...It’s a swan

 

The Certificate -

 

Cause I'm a cocky ***k, Hit your girl and I knock her up

Be like what the ***k? In the net like a hockey puck. (score!)

Rappers get embarrassed when they see the way that we work

They try hard, they're shamed like fat guys swimming in T-shirts

 

 

My crews got it made, rockin the place

With more dope rappers to match every pram chillin at collonades

Binary star - Reality Check

 

[One.Be.Lo]

This is how I represent I rock the mic 110 percent

It's intimate, I keeps the party moving like a imigrant

Binary Star, superstar its no coincidence

Every verse is intricate, this ain't a circus in a tent

We don't get down like them clowns and the kids

I'm use to being indegent, who said its all about the

Benjamin's?

I wanna fortune, I wanna make music and hit the lottery

Fortunately my music is never watery

That's how its gotta be, as far as I can see

Maybe you should grab a telescope to see my veiw its

like astronomy

It aint all about economy

so the fact that these wack emcees is making G's don't

bother me

Honestly, my number one policy is quality

never sell my soul is my philosophy

High velocity, lyrics like Nastradamus make a prophecy

I told you cats a long time a go it ain't no stoppin'

me

I bomb your set that's not a threat its a promise

Got everybody ridin' on my wagon like the Amish

But still I never claim to be a big rap star

So no matter who you are its still Allah hu akbar

Better believe this, most rappers can't achieve this

I'm bad to the bone but x-rays can't even see this

See I'm strategic I letcha money talk bullshit walk

While I keep it rollin' like parapalegics

Whoever's on the microphone let it be known

You in danger, I got next(necks) like the Boston

Strangler

You ain't never heard an emcee speak like this

And Rodney King ain't never felt a beat like this

I have about a thousand, as I'm sure everyone else does. But these words have caused wonder ever since I heard this track.

about the bullets that kill, about the bones that may break.

But later on, on the drive home,

I called her mom, from a payphone,

I said I was the cops, and your husband's in jail.

Anyway, another lyric ive always like is the intro of Hit em up - Tupac

- I ain't got no motherf**king friends

That's why I f**ked your bitch

Hoping for the best but expecting the worst,

INXS - Never Tear Us Apart

 

I told you that we could fly, 'cause we all have wings, but some of us don't know why.

 

I was standing, you were there, two worlds collided, and they could never, ever tear us apart.

 

Judging by some of the preferences in here, probably known to quite a few as the song from the opening scene in Donnie Darko.
