Quotes about slave to your words

Byron

Canto the Fourth

I
Nothing so difficult as a beginning
In poesy, unless perhaps the end;
For oftentimes when Pegasus seems winning
The race, he sprains a wing, and down we tend,
Like Lucifer when hurl'd from heaven for sinning;
Our sin the same, and hard as his to mend,
Being pride, which leads the mind to soar too far,
Till our own weakness shows us what we are.

II
But Time, which brings all beings to their level,
And sharp Adversity, will teach at last
Man, -- and, as we would hope, -- perhaps the devil,
That neither of their intellects are vast:
While youth's hot wishes in our red veins revel,
We know not this -- the blood flows on too fast;
But as the torrent widens towards the ocean,
We ponder deeply on each past emotion.

Tiriel

1

And Aged Tiriel. stood before the Gates of his beautiful palace
With Myratana. once the Queen of all the western plains
But now his eyes were darkned. & his wife fading in death
They stood before their once delightful palace. & thus the Voice
Of aged Tiriel. arose. that his sons might hear in their gates
Accursed race of Tiriel. behold your father
Come forth & look on her that bore you. come you accursed sons.
In my weak arms. I here have borne your dying mother
Come forth sons of the Curse come forth. see the death of Myratana
His sons ran from their gates. & saw their aged parents stand
And thus the eldest son of Tiriel raisd his mighty voice
Old man unworthy to be calld. the father of Tiriels race
For evry one of those thy wrinkles. each of those grey hairs
Are cruel as death. & as obdurate as the devouring pit
Why should thy sons care for thy curses thou accursed man
Were we not slaves till we rebeld. Who cares for Tiriels curse
His blessing was a cruel curse. His curse may be a blessing
He ceast the aged man raisd up his right hand to the heavens

Visions of the Daughters of Albion

The Eye sees more than the heart knows.

The Argument

I loved Theotormon
And I was not ashamed
I trembled in my virgin fears
And I hid in Leutha's Vale!

I plucked Leutha's flower,
And I rose up from the vale;
But the terrible thunders tore
My virgin mantle in twain.

Visions

Enslav'd, the Daughters of Albion weep; a trembling lamentation
Upon their mountains; in their valleys, sighs towards America.
For the soft soul of America, Oothoon wanderd in woe,
Along the vales of Leutha seeking flowers to comfort her;

Splinters

Self sent a twister
A tearin after me
Gonna bust my house to splinters yes
An take all thats dear to me
You say you saw it comin yeah
But still you did not flee
I was too weak I couldnt move
Held by growth of a tree
An yes I fell upon that rock
I did not die jus badly broken
An in time my healin it will come yeah
By the words that he has spoken
I fell upon that rock
Who is it now that loves you
Straight in the front door
An crooked out the back yeah
What is it now youre a slave to
On your knees out in your shack
I fell upon that rock yeah
Hes beyond the shadow

Still

My heart cried out to for you over an ocean
And your pain cried out for me across a wave
You hid half dead, numb to any emotion
'Cause you were a prisoner and I was your slave
We both stopped searching for any acceptance
And rejection always was our bitter pill
'Cause I have no precious gifts to give you
Only have four words; darling I love you
I love you still
I never thought someone would ever see
Or make a prisoner of my heart
But like a warrior dressed in armor
You carved your name in it right from the start
You held my sould a hostage
In your tower on the hill
And all I prayed for when I sleep
Or lay awake, is that you love me still
My heart cried out to for you over an ocean
And your pain cried out for me across a wave
'Cause we hid half dead, numb to any emotion

I Walk Away

You came
Out of this world to me
My life
Parted like the red sea
We flowed
Easy between the rocks and stones
Never seemed to stop us
The years
Ended in confusion
Dont ask me I dont know what happened
But I am
A man with a mission
Must be the devil I dont know
Its hard to let go
Of all that we know
As I walk away from you
Hurled from my home
Into the unknown
As I walk away from you
Reveal whatever you desire

If You Think I Dont Need You

(words & music by west - cooper)
If you think I dont need you
Then take a look in my eyes
Maybe these aint raindrops
Falling out of the sky
Since you been gone
Ive been so alone
If you think I dont need you
Then baby youre wrong
If you think I dont love you
What could I do to prove to you baby
My love is true
I sing the same old song
Since youve been gone
If you think I dont love you
Then baby youre wrong
My life aint been the same since you left me
I aint had a wink of sleep in seven days
I dont know what to do Im going crazy
I just walk the floor at night and call your name

Treat Me Nice

(words & music by jerry leiber - mike stoller)
When I walk through that door
Baby be polite
Youre gonna make me sore
If you dont greet me right
Dont you ever kiss me once, kiss me twice
Treat me nice
I know that youve been told
Its not fair to tease
So if you come on cold
Im really gonna freeze
If you dont want me to be cold as ice
Treat me nice
Make me feel at home
If you really care
Scratch my back and run your pretty
Fingers through my hair
You know Ill be your slave
If you ask me to
But if you dont behave

I Cant Escape From You

Recorded by hank williams, sr.
Words and music by hank williams, sr.
Ive [c] tried and tried to run and hide
To find a [c7] life thats [g7] new
But [c] where I go, I [f] always [c] know
I cant es-[g7] cape from [c] you.
A jug of wine to numb my mind
But what good does it do
The jug runs dry and still I cry
I cant escape from you.
These wasted tears are souvenirs
Of a love I thought was true
Your memory is chained to me
I cant escape from you.
There is no end, I cant pretend
That dreams will soon come true
A slave too long to a heart of stone
I cant escape from you.

Anything My Mama Don't Like

I'm no believer
I just listen to my own head
I'm no believer
I just call you liar instead
Keep all your sorrows
Words might be pathetically vain
Life is a fire
Light it and you can read your name
I'm the king of the night generation
I'm anything my mama don't like
I'm a slave of perverted nation
Anything my mama don't like
I am a flyer
Rising in the wake of my dreams
I am a tumbler
Life can be as good as it seems
I'm a child playing chess with tomorrow
I'm anything my mama don't like
I'm a clown and I beg, steal and borrow
Anything my mama don't like
