"For My Friends" (2008)

For My Friends Lyrics – Blind Melon

I remember we used to sit out back and drink until the morning light
Always bummin' smokes and talking trash about the pleasure we had
Summers come and gone
And the winter needs a song
And I guess I keep movin' along in a ride that I have in my head
Ride that I have in my head

Oh we used to drop some pills and sing til we lose our voice
Chasing our dreams, we tried to put em' in a bag and save em' for another day yeah
Oh I feel,these memories are real
Times you can't steal
For the love that I have for my friends
Love that I have for my friends

I just can pretend I need you
You ain't no other love I never had
Soon you will find my log
Its a beat that will never stop
Its the loneliest time apart

Love that I have for my friends
Love that I have for my friends
Love that I have for my friends
Love that I have for my friends

With The Right Set Of Eyes Lyrics – Blind Melon

You've been on your own since you learned how to adjust to
You felt like you had to baby sit your owners just to feel like all the others

All you wanted was...
Something that was normal and stable
You've always been so aware and so able
But you still seem so far away
It's difficult to enjoy all the holidays
It's nothing more than the same as the other days
But you can't feel any other way

You have to tell yourself why
Gotta keep your spirit alive
Gotta keep yourself movin' forward
You never gave into anything around you
With something you could never afford

All you wanted was
Something that was normal and stable
You've always been so aware and so able
But you still seem so far away
It's difficult to enjoy all the holidays
It's nothing more than the same as the other days
But you can't feel any other way

When you wish for this
You'll ditch everything else
It just floats away and crawls out your skull
All you wanna do is crawl inside your hole
Disappear forever

Something that's normal and stable
You've always been so aware and so able
But you still seem so far away
It's difficult to enjoy all the holidays
It's nothing more than the same as the other days
But you can't feel any other way

Forever
Forever
Forever
Forever

Wishing Well Lyrics – Blind Melon

When you fall back down
And you lost your crown
Get back up, walk around
Turn that frown upside down

Take my hand once again
We will all understand
Help you find a new plan

Whoooooa
It's time to help you
Get you back on your feet and on your way
If the tables were turned around
I know you'd be there for me
It all works out

Don't get lost and forget
Turn the lights off and rest
Don't you worry no more
Heal your pain and your sores
We'll be there when you wake
No more sweat or the shakes
Feel the love if you can
Lost your mind, feel insane

Whoooooa
You're feeling hopeless
And all your dreams have gone away
Take the time to heal your sorrows
And disappear from the world
Live for tomorrow

Hope you changed your ways
There's not much more to say
When the dark turns to gray
Broken hearts fade away

Whoooooa
It's time to help you
And get you back on your feet and on your way
If the tables were turned around
I know you'd be there for me
It all works out

And i hope that it all works out [x5]

Sometimes Lyrics – Blind Melon

There's a price you will pay when you're on top of the world
Oh, when everyone wants to be your friend or companion
There's a fine line between your own heaven and hell
Oh, when everything goes your way, you still feel abandoned

Sometimes, nothing's better than something
Sometimes, you're better off lonely

Why is it when times are good, everyone sticks around
But when things start to go the other way,
They split and forget you
My own philosophy has been good to me
I try to stay to myself and don't get caught in the shit storm

Sometimes, nothing's better than something
Sometimes, you're better off lonely
And my airplane is taking off slowly

Most of the time I really don't mind
It's pointless to waste all of my time thinking about this shit
I spend most of my days trying to unwind and forget about it

I still worry if you're ok
I still wonder if you're the same…

Remember when times were good and so simple-minded
And then somewhere along the way we lost all connections
When you strip away, all that's left is a guilty conscience
If I took a guess, I would bet you think this song is about you
Don't you, don't you, don't you

Sometimes, nothing's better than something
Sometimes, you're better off lonely
My heart is stranded and frozen
And my airplane is taking off slowly

Most of the time I really don't mind
It's pointless to waste all of my time, thinking about this shit
I spend most of my days trying to unwind and forget about it

I still worry if you're ok
I still wonder if you're the same…

Tumblin Down Lyrics – Blind Melon

I went drivin' today
Couldn't help but think of how
You're with somebody else
And now you've got a child

It's been a few years
Since I saw you last
I know you're doin' fine
You don't miss the broken glass

Well I won't waste your time
So I won't come around
I didn't mean to make you cry
I just wanted to make you proud

But it all come tumblin' down
Well it all comes tumblin' down
Yes it all comes tumblin' down
Whenever you're around

Through the years
We tried to make it work
It'd start with a yellin' match
And end up gettin' hurt

And now you're gone
I've changed my shallow ways
I hoped you'd get to see them
But you will never know

Somedays
I miss the noise we used to make
And then I stop and think
That I ain't ever goin' back

Cause it all comes tumblin' down
Yes it all comes tumblin' down
Well it all comes tumblin' down
Whenever you're around

Please don't forget about what we've had or lost
I'll take it everywhere I go from here on out
I know you'll do the same
Whatever life you make

Down On The Pharmacy Lyrics – Blind Melon

You're fooling no one but yourself
You finally made it to your own hell
It took the bottom to shake your will
You forgot to love and forgot to feel

They locked you up, you're scratching the ceiling
You're down on your knees, you're praying for something
You're looking real high, (line to live for?)
What do you do and where do you go now

I know a place for you to hide
The past catches up with you one day
And stares you in the face and takes you away
The blindness always seems to win
And one day you will wake up with nothing to give

You've been strung out for awhile
I know that you know that we know you know
You're living a story that's already been made
You're burning the pages that you keep fading
The more you keep hiding the more we keep fighting
The less you keep trying, the sooner you're dying
The more that you give up, the more that you give back
The cleaner that you get, the sweeter that life is
The sooner that you know, the sooner the shit flows

Ya got to give it up now, ya gotta let it rest
The time is right now, you know it's right

It's time that you tear down that wall inside
The past catches up with you one day
And stares you in the face and takes you away
The blindness always seems to win
And one day you will wake up with nothing to give

Please forgive me, please forgive me.......

You never think it will ever turn out the way it does when you start out
The past catches up with you one day
And stares you in the face and takes you away
The blindness always seems to win
And one day you will wake up with nothing to give
Lah, lah, lah-da, lah-da-da

Please forgive me, please forgive me, please forgive me...

Make A Difference Lyrics – Blind Melon

I've got peace on my mind a pistol full of insistence
Enough blood to fill a lake, but does it make a difference?
Tolerance was the sermon
No matter how dubious
The fundamental thinking just turned so malicious

There's a few people spinning gold
Some just try to save their soul
But I wonder what to do
Money bills and secret guns
I know i can't help everyone
But I can take on one or two
That's what I'll do

Ive got to pick a god so many of them to witness
Did I follow the right one?
Does it make a difference?
Inside there's a substance
Fuel for my pennance
The whole world is hurtin' bad
Can i make a difference?

There's a few people spinnin' gold
Some just try to save their soul
But I wonder what to do
Money bills and secret guns
I know i can't help everyone
But I can take on one or two
That's what I'll do

It's beautiful in the world
It's beautiful in the world
Yeah

A few people spinnin' gold
Some just try to save their soul
But I wonder what to do
Money bills and secret guns
I know i can't help everyone
But I can take on one or two
That's what I'll do

Harmful Belly Lyrics – Blind Melon

Scratch my eyes out for you
Strap dynamite to my side
Shed a carcass for you
I'll empty out my soul
I'm begging you just give me a chance
Stick with me and we'll see the rest
Oh I'm paralyzed

I'll carve your name here in my chest
Kill for you and nothing less
I'll burn alive no second thoughts
Just to hear your scratchy voice

Rain is falling from your face
Drink the rest it still remains on you
It feels so good it starts to hurt
Hurts so bad it starts to burn

I'll frame your eyes here on my wall
Feel your love when you are gone
It makes me sad when you are sad
I feel down when you are down
I'm begging you just give me a chance
Stick with me and we'll see the rest

Rain is falling from your face
Drink the rest it still remains on you
It feels so good it starts to hurt
Hurts so bad it starts to burn

Why would you ever change?
It's a mystery
Hell would finally come apart
You would hurt and see
You're the reason I came like I'm all worked up again

Rain is falling from your face
Drink the rest it still remains on you
It feels so good it starts to hurt
Hurts so bad it starts to burn

Last Laugh Lyrics – Blind Melon

You didn't wake up before you hit the ground
I didn't stay up long enough to see you falling
You never asked for the world but then
You jumped from the rooftop
Because you had to have the last laugh

Look where you are
Look where you are now
Look where you are
I heard you say
Everyday above ground was a good one

You never see her
Hair in braids and blue eyes
Because we didn't try hard enough
She's still waiting to hear you sing
A song for her

You jumped from the rooftop
She still asks me

Where are you now, Where are you now
Where are you now, I heard you say
Everyday above ground was a good one

I want to live so much that I am going to die
I want to run so fast that I am going to fall
I probably said it once before I apologize
This will be the last time
This will be the last time

Where are you now, Where are you now
Where are you now, I heard you say
Everyday above ground

Where are you now, where are you now
Where are you now, I heard you say
Everyday above ground,
Everyday above ground
Was a good one.

Hypnotize Lyrics – Blind Melon

What would you do if I told you
You wouldn't have to worry anymore
Throw all your scars in the ocean.
Sink to the floor and disappear forever

Dreaming that's got me by this far
Without it I'd be lost in the wind
Some days I can't get out of my own bed
Others I play along instead

It's been a long time since I forgot about all my crimes
Walk away from all that drags me down
Soon I think I'll get hypnotized
And start a new life

No long delays, don't hesitate, no complicated scenarios
Let's get right on down to the point
Don't hold me down, right to the ground, let's get unwound and lose that frown
So much more than we live for
You got fast forward through all of the bullshit times
You got to clear out the dust for room to breathe

Stay away from all negativity
That'll bring you down

Don't let the good sink in to deep in your soul
You've got to get outside
It's never too late to make a change in your life
And to feel alright

You've got to get rid of the old
And bring the new right on in
Don't pretend
Oh give in
And just get it done

Father Time Lyrics – Blind Melon

Have you heard about the mice
They're makin love they're growin up
They made it back to circle us
Have you heard about the snake
He figured that'd he'd shed his skin
Slide away, again, begin

It's easy to retreat than to face yourself
And let things fall in place
There's no words to describe the way I feel today
But I still feel okay

Do you think you look like hell
It's hard to hug you from a shell
Give it up for the snail
It's not easy for the bee's
They pack a knife, to the job
They try to keep from getting robbed

It's easy to retreat than to face yourself
And let things fall in place
There's no words to describe the way I feel today
But I still feel okay

Human heart (?) is that a crush
Father time looks over us
You'll miss it all if you rush
Did you listen to the doors
It waits around without a sound
So gather round so listen whoooooaoaaaaaoaoooaoaoa

It's easy to retreat than to face yourself
And let things fall in place
There's no words to describe the way I feel today
But I still feel okay [repeat]

So High Lyrics – Blind Melon

Does it ever seem like you're living in a story someone else wrote
Everything you've done was all scripted out
Getting thrown in all directions but the path I want isn't there
I was told it's a few steps away

I could die in the sky and
Leave this world behind
I'd get so high
Live free

Have you ever felt like someone was watching you with no eyes
You try to spot them out but they all hide
Oh well I'm standing on a tower of endless thinking
Oh would you like to have a thought with me

Oh and the world seems like one big buzz of peace
We'll be floating on below

What would it take for me to find a way to survive
A cut so deep it shows the other side

I could die in the sky and
Leave this world behind
I'd get so high
Live free

And the world seems like one big buzz of peace
We'll be floating on the love
If Lennon was here he would sing this part
If Lennon was here he would sing this part

Cheetum Street Lyrics – Blind Melon

It was late one night in Southern Texas
My dad was playing in a rock-n-roll band
He took me along to a place called Cheatem Street
My bags were packed, I was ready to meet you for the first time
Oh but a phone call would have been nice

I guess you're stuck with what was given to you
And the world couldn't change my spirit
This will remain the same

You were young and living like you wanted to
I understand because I packed up and left just like you did
At 17 you think you got the whole world in your hands
Oh in so many ways you did

I don't want to have you worry no more
Let's forgive and forget and finish what we started
So we can move on

I want you to know I really needed you then
And I can use you now
I talked to you by listening to all of those stupid songs
I would sit along side of the fence

Now you're doing fine and you're gigging here and there
It's been nice to know you for the past few years
When you're living the same dream it's easy to read each other for sure
Ohhh it could have turned out so different

I guess you're stuck with what was given to you
And the world couldn't change my spirit
This will remain forever

I don't want to have you worry no more
Let's forgive and forget and finish what we started
So we can move on

"Nico" (1996)
