Oh and I would just die if you you ever took your love away

Now I am no devil but I've got things on my mind
And they're gonna come out and they're gonna come up time to time

-----

What can I keep for myself if I tell you my hell?

-----


In my faded jeans and far away eyes
And salty carnival kiss
That all my former lovers say
Was once magnificent

-----


But me, I never believed
'Cause I've been so lonely
I can't imagine that kind of sympathy

-----

She said, "I'm man enough my baby come see about me"

-----

I had a dream about you once
I could barely see your form
I met you between the wax and the needle
In the words of my favorite song

lol....ditto this too.

oh wait... for some reason the decided to cut one of the three best verses Brian has ever written...

I was fucking livid at this when they cut it out

I like that verse too, but you're very, very consistently negative on Handwritten. It's fine, but at some point you'll be beating a dead horse. I just hope you stop before that point comes.

My favorite lyric...cluster, if you will, would be this part of Mulholland Drive. Perhaps partly because it's pretty similar to my current situation, but I'd like to think anyone would appreciate these lyrics.

In the deep, dark parking lot pressed up against my car
With your hands around my neck I felt the pounding of your heart
And the summer night was giving in to the lure of Autumnís sway
I canít seem to forget that night or how I heard you say
That Iíd just die if you ever took your love away

So its okay for people who love the album to keep talking about why the love it, but if you dislike parts you need to shut up? I thought this was a gaslight discussion site... discussion goes both ways.

Seconded. Some people need to chill out and stop taking offence if someone makes a slightly critical observation. We are all fans of the band but this forum is for discussing exactly how we feel about the music.

Sure, I can agree with that. I don't think any of us disliked the third verse of Biloxi. But some people are acting like Brian discovered the elixir of life and then threw it away. The lyrics are good, but they're not Bob Dylan good.

So many good ones!

I dance with your ghost, oh but that ainít the way, I canít move on and I canít stay the same.

Whatís your favorite song? Thatís mine, Iíve been crying to it since I was young.
Iíve been holding my breath, are you holding your breath, for too many years to count?
Thereís nothing like another soul thatís been cut up the same.
I can understand you need a minute to breathe and to sew up the seams after all this defeatÖ and all this defeat.
And to ease the loss of youth, and the many, many years Iíve missed youÖ

How much time do we have? If I wanted to I could start over again.
And maybe time will tell you why Iíve got so much hell to sell you.
I just wonít be there to stand for it, not one more minute will I stand for it.

In the deep, dark parking lot pressed up against my car, with your hands around my neck I can feel the pounding of your heart.
Who came to drive you around this town, like I used to drive you all around with the radio on, through the mist of Mulholland.

Iíll be with you through the dark so that you do not go through the dark alone, or on your own.

The place where you were in my heart is now closed, I already live with too many ghosts.
With everything discovered just waiting to be knownÖ
Now she screams how I promised her more than this. Take it easy baby, it ainít over yet.
And if thereís something you need, and if thereís something you find, whatever gets you through the night, whatever gets you through the night.

How blue is your heart? Is it sad enough to break? She said ďitís sad enough to break.Ē
How long was your life? Was it cold and strange like mine?
I met you between the wax and the needle in the words of my favorite song.
And it took years, my baby, just to come clean. Every street light a reminder, and all those apologies, and the night was lonely next to me, even the night was lonely next to me.

In the last hours before the sunrise Iím not sure if I passed out or closed my eyes. I woke into a dream where I know I knew somebody just got their claws in you. And your breath heaves in silent anythings, like a subconscious ritual.
If youíre gonna break my heart, it might as well be tonight.

Oh, and every word of Mae.

Might be my favorite on the album.... Very Happy

"I'm in love with the way you're in love with the night. And it travels from heart to limb to pen."

I also like:

"And there used to be a movement in the way your dress would wave. From your hips on down like electric through the ground."

This, for me, is by far the best on the album and quickly becoming one of my all time favourites

"Here in the dark, I cherish the moonlight
I'm in love with the way you're in love with the night
And it travels from heart to limb to pen"

My top 5 are easily

"We wait for kingdom come...with the radio on"
"I've learned that nothing truly matters, that you cannot find for free"
"Radio, oh radio, do you believe there's still some magic left inside our souls?"
"I'm in love with the way you're in love with the night"
"And there used to be a movement in the way your dress would wave, from your hips on down like electric through the ground"

And I also love "turn the key and engine over," but I've forgotten 45 exists since the album came out...

^^^^^This.

Some of the most profound and touching lyrics I've ever heard.

There are alot of great lines on the record, but these are the ones that kind of stuck in my head

"Pull it out, turn it up, what's your favorite song? That's mine, I've been crying to it since I was young"

"Hey, waking up, please shake it out,
Does anything's still moving since you're educated now
And all grown old and travelled so well?
Do you still hear the sound of thunder while you lie up by yourself."

I love how the verses in Howl tie to each other.... One is from the girl's perspective and one is from the guys.... I ddn't like the song as much as others at first, but then once I put the words all together, it really changed a lot for me!

"Did you sleep last night, and do you remember dreams?
Do I ever cross your mind and do you ever think of me?"

____

"Have you seen my heart?
Have you seen how it bleeds?"

____

"There's nothing like another soul that's been cut up the same"
____

"No I am no angel but I've got nothing to hide
Can you say the same thing for yourself tonight?"

____

"Try it on for size my darling, see what a man you can make of me"

___
