Profound & Cool Lyrics



A project in motion by David Kerekes.

Here is a list of lyrics to songs that I have been listening to and jotting down whenever the mood takes me. They are in the order that I jotted them down, which is why lyrics from the same song sometimes figure back to back.

Sometimes I will be listening to a track and it will make me laugh. Other times there is a depth to the lyrics that I doubt was the intention of the songwriter. Or maybe it was. Something about the delivery will often make me sit up and take note. And because a lot of this material is old material, it has the measure of innocence about it, which is where the really weird stuff is.


95. "I've been waiting to show her, Crimson and clover, Over and over" - Crimson And Clover by Tommy James & The Shondells

94. "I can't wait one more day, can't find one more word to say, So I'll just get on my way. I'm comin' home. See the hills floatin' by, rollin' like a lullaby, rock me Lord I'm gonna cry. I'm comin' home. River wide, river deep, river runnin' in my sleep, finding that all rivers keep, I'm comin home. Comin', comin' home. Sing me one gentle song. Sing me one sweet gentle song, I've been achin' so damn long, I'm comin' home. I'm comin' home. I'm comin'. I am comin'. Home." - I'm Comin' Home (The Devil in Miss Jones original motion picture soundtrack, music composed by Alden Shuman)

Image cover lovers buggers & thieves
Lost legends and supergroups, the best, worst and oddest music to emerge from the explosive rock'n'roll breeding ground of the 1960s through to the 1980s. Lovers Buggers & Thieves, edited by Martin Jones, offers fresh perspectives on the likes of Led Zeppelin, the Beatles (a comprehensive guide to Fab Four bootlegs and "outfakes"), interviews with Australian garage punk and psych legends of the sixties, the musical legacy of Charles Manson, Skip Spence, Monks, the Sonics, Bonzo Dog Band, Screaming Lord Sutch, and other music and musicians dragged back from the edge.
