ELVIS PRESLEY lyrics

Snowbird

Original and similar lyrics
Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green The snowbird sings a song he always sings And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring When I was young my heart was young then too Anything that it would tell me, that's the thing that I would do But now I feel such emptiness within For the thing that I want most in life Is the thing I can't win Spread your tiny wings and fly away And take the snow back with you Where it came from on that day The one I love forever is untrue And if I could you know that I would fly away with you The breeze along the river seems to say That she'll only break my heart again should I decide to stay So little snowbird take me with you when you go To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow

Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms

John McDermott "When I Grow Too Old To Dream"
Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms : To my mother Beleive me if all those endearing young charms Which I gave on so fondly today Were to change by tomorrow and fleet in my arms Like the fairy gifts fading away Though would still be adored as this moment thou art Let thy loveliness fade as it will And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart Would entwine itself verdantly still It is not while beauty and youth are thine own And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear That the fervour and faith of a soul can be known To which time will but make thee more dear No the heart which has truly loved never forgets But as truly loves on to the close As the sunflower turns on her guard when he sets The same look which she turned when he rose

Highlands

BOB DYLAN "Time Out Of Mind"
Well, my heart's in the highlands, gentle and fair Honey suckle bloomin' in the wildwood air Bluebells blazin' where the Aberdeen waters flow Well, my heart's in the highlands, I'm gonna go there when I feel good enough to go. Windows were shakin' all night in my dreams Everything was exactly the way that it seems Woke up this mornin' and I looked at the same old page Same old rat race, life in the same old cage. I don't want nothin' from anyone, ain't that much to take Wouldn't know the difference between a real blonde and a fake Feel like a prisoner in a world of mystery I wish someone would come and push back the clock for me. Well, my heart's in the highlands, wherever I roam That's where I'll be when I get called home The wind it whispers to the buck-eyed trees of rhyme Well, my heart's in the highlands, I can only get there one step at a time. I'm listening to Neil Young, I gotta turn up the sound Someone's always yellin', 'Turn him down' Feel like I'm driftin', driftin' from scene to scene I'm wondering what in the devil could it all possibly mean. Insanity is smashin' up against my soul You could say I was on anything but a roll If I had a conscience, well I just might blow my top What would I do with it anyway, maybe take it to the pawn shop. My heart's in the highlands at the break of dawn By the beautiful lake of the black swan Big white clouds like chariots that swing down low Well, my heart's in the highlands, only place left to go. I'm in Boston town, in some restaurant I got no idea what I want Or maybe I do but, I'm just really not sure Waitress comes over, nobody in the place but me and her. Well, it must be a holiday, there's nobody around She studies me closely as I sit down She got a pretty face, with long white shiny legs I said, 'Tell me what I want,' she say, 'You probably want hard boiled eggs.' I say, 'That's right, bring me some.' She says, 'We ain't got any, you picked the wrong time to come.' Then she says, 'I know you're an artist, draw a picture of me.' I said, 'I would if I could but I don't do sketches from memory.' Well, she then, she says, 'I'm right here in front of you, or haven't you looked' I say, 'All right, I know but I don't have my drawing book.' She gives me a napkin, she say, 'You can do it on that.' I say, 'Yes I could but I don't know where my pencil is at.' She pulls one out from behind her ear She says, 'All right now go ahead, draw me, I'm stayin' right here.' I make a few lines and I show it for her to see Well, she takes her napkin and throws it back and says, 'That don't look a thing like me.' I said, 'Oh, kind Miss, it most certainly does.' She say, 'You must be jokin',' I say, 'I wish I was.' Then she says, 'You don't read women authors do ya' at least that's what I think I hear her say Well, I said, 'How would you know and what would it matter anyway' Well she says, 'You just don't seem like you do.' I said, 'You're way wrong.' She says 'Which ones have you read then' I say, 'I've read Erica Jong.' She goes away for a minute and I slide out, out of my chair I step outside back to the busy street but nobody is goin' anywhere. Well, my heart's in the highlands with the horses and hounds Way up in the border country far from the towns With the twang of the arrow and the snap of the bow My heart's in the highlands, I can't see any other way to go. Every day is the same thing, out the door Feel further away than ever before Some things in life it just gets too late to learn Well, I'm lost somewhere, I must have made a few bad turns. I see people in the park forgettin' their troubles and woes They're drinkin' and dancin', wearin' bright colored clothes All the young men, with the young women lookin' so good Well, I'd trade places with any of 'em in a minute, if I could. I'm crossing the street to get away from a mangy dog Talkin' to myself in a monologue I think what I need might be a full length leather coat Somebody just asked me if I've registered to vote. The sun is beginnin' to shine on me But it's not like the sun that used to be The party's over and there's less and less to say I got new eyes, everything looks far away. Well, my heart's in the highlands at the break of day Over the hills and far away There's a way to get there and I'll figure it out somehow Well, I'm already there in my mind, and that's good enough for now.

Too Much Too Young

Little Angels
Breaking out of school and we were kicking hard. A lot of good dreams and a lot of false starts. Swore we wouldn't get old before our time. So what's the matter boy are you wondering where it went? The memory's better than it was back then, you could not wait to leave it all behind. But there is one thing I know I ain't quite ready to go. Too much, too young. I won't do time when I've just begun Too much, too young. What about love, what of songs unsung? Too much too young I'll never go backward, I'll always go on... I want more, give me, oh just a little bit more! I don't want a house or a three piece suite- Those thing dont matter to me, I'm happy sleeping on your kitchen floor. So if you ain't happy following my star. lend me some money, give me your old car, 'cos you dont really need it anymore. I've got some living to do, and I ain't waiting for you. Sometimes I wonder If I'll ever live again well I can tell you, if I do, I'd make that change I've got my share of regrets but I ain't afraid to say I've paid the price I have to pay. Well once upon a time when we were so young well what were we then lies tattered and torn, well I guess that's just the way it goes I've got to move on to the other side. I can see this thing is a-hurting your pride maybe I'll be back to say goodbye - who knows! Nobody stand in my way I'll take tomorrow today.
