Jeff Buckley

You & I – Jeff Buckley

you and i.
ah, the calm below that poisoned river wild, you and i.
tears that dry on a rude awakened child.
where you look down. i?ve walked before,
burning holes with eyes of liquid brown.

if we had only known, in a way we wouldn?t reach this ground.
you were my only home, silver eyes. i want to see you shine.
and we will feel the weight. fall away from us in time. searching our past for the true.

you and i,
you and i,
you and i.
all for you.

where you think you?ll fall, i adore you.
where you shut your soul, i will open for you.
if we had only known in a way we?d never reach this ground.
i know, silver eyes, I can see us shine.
i said, we will feel the weight fall away from us in time.
searching our past for a true you and i,
you and i,
you and i.
all for you.

Kangaroo – Jeff Buckley

i first saw you
you had on blue jeans
your eyes couldn’t hide
anything
i saw you leaving, oh

i saw you staring out in space

i next saw you
you were at the party
thought you was a dream
oh so flirty

i came against

didn’t say excuse
knew what i was doing
we looked very fine
as we were leaving

just like saint joan
doing a cool jerk
oh, i want you
like a kangaroo

Hallelujah – Jeff Buckley

i heard there was a secret chord
that david played and it pleased the lord
but you don’t really care for music, do you
well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
the baffled king composing hallelujah

hallelujah…

well your faith was strong but you needed proof
you saw her bathing on the roof
her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
she tied you to her kitchen chair
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the hallelujah

hallelujah…

baby i’ve been here before
i’ve seen this room and i’ve walked this floor
i used to live alone before i knew you
i’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
but love is not a victory march
it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

hallelujah…

well there was a time when you let me know
what’s really going on below
but now you never show that to me do you
but remember when i moved in you
and the holy dove was moving too
and every breath we drew was hallelujah

well, maybe there’s a god above
but all i’ve ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
it’s not a cry that you hear at night
it’s not somebody who’s seen the light
it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

hallelujah…
