Quotes about the lying word

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Killed at the Ford

He is dead, the beautiful youth,
The heart of honor, the tongue of truth,
He, the life and light of us all,
Whose voice was blithe as a bugle-call,
Whom all eyes followed with one consent,
The cheer of whose laugh, and whose pleasant word,
Hushed all murmurs of discontent.

Only last night, as we rode along,
Down the dark of the mountain gap,
To visit the picket-guard at the ford,
Little dreaming of any mishap,
He was humming the words of some old song:
'Two red roses he had on his cap
And another he bore at the point of his sword.'

Sudden and swift a whistling ball
Came out of a wood, and the voice was still;
Something I heard in the darkness fall,
And for a moment my blood grew chill;

Matthew Arnold

Sohrab and Rustum

And the first grey of morning fill'd the east,
And the fog rose out of the Oxus stream.
But all the Tartar camp along the stream
Was hush'd, and still the men were plunged in sleep;
Sohrab alone, he slept not; all night long
He had lain wakeful, tossing on his bed;
But when the grey dawn stole into his tent,
He rose, and clad himself, and girt his sword,
And took his horseman's cloak, and left his tent,
And went abroad into the cold wet fog,
Through the dim camp to Peran-Wisa's tent.

Through the black Tartar tents he pass'd, which stood
Clustering like bee-hives on the low flat strand
Of Oxus, where the summer-floods o'erflow
When the sun melts the snows in high Pamere
Through the black tents he pass'd, o'er that low strand,
And to a hillock came, a little back
From the stream's brink--the spot where first a boat,
Crossing the stream in summer, scrapes the land.

Oily Water

LEAD IN ME AND ME IN WATER
DANGLING IN MY WORD
I SWALLOWED TO MUCH OILY WATER
IT KEEPS SLIPPING DOWN MY SPINE

IN A SENSE OF SELF DECLINE
GROWING FAT ON SOUND
IT'S ONLY AN EARLY MORNING DREAM
AND THE WHOLE WORLD WILL BE ALRIGHT

[CHORUS]

MY HEAD IS FULL OF SUSPICION
I'M COMING HOME SOMETIME
I'VE SWALLOWED TOO MUCH OILY WATER
IT KEEPS SLIPPING DOWN MY SPINE

IN A SENSE OF SELF IN DECLINE
LYING ON MY BACK
IT'S ONLY AN EARLY MORNING DREAM

Something Beautiful

[verse]
If you put your arms around me
Could it change the way I feel
I guess I let myself believe
That the outside might just
Bleed it's way in
Maybe stir the sleeping past
Lying under glass
Waiting for the kiss
That breaks this awful spell
Pull me out...of this lonely cell

[chorus]
Close my eyes and hold my heart
Cover me and make me something
Change this something normal
Into something beautiful

[verse]
What I get from my reflection

Ill Never Get Enough Of You

(gary portnoy, judy quay, jeannie napoli)
All last night we lay in bed making love
I never felt so much before with anyone
Never had to say a word
It was all right there
The warmth inside us flamed and circled everywhere
And if I never have another love
Well at least I had last night
Now I know how the feeling grows
cause you made me come alive
(chorus)
Ill never get enough, never get enough
Never get enough of you
Ill never get enough, never get enough
Never get enough of you
I only wanna give you more
Now youre gone, Im all alone just lying here
Waiting for the moment when Ill feel you near
Never asked if youd come back, Im to damn proud
I just smiled and touched your hair

Please Be With Me

By (d.allman)
Oh my word what could it be
Is it love or is it me
That makes me change so suddenly
Looking out feeling free
Sit here lying in my bed
Wondering what is was Id said
Made me think Id lost my head
When I know Id lost my heart instead
Chorus:
Wont you please read my signs be a gypsy
Tell me what I hope to find deep within me
Because you cant see my mind please be with me
Of all the better things Ive heard
Loving you has made the words
And all the rest seems so absurd
In the end it all comes out Im sure
Chorus:
Wont you please read my signs be a gypsy
Tell me what I hope to find deep within me

Inspector Mills

Inspector mills Id like to tell you bout a girl I saw
At a party just the other night in beverly hills
Inspector mills I hope you find her and it dont take long
Watch my feelings for her growing strong in a war of wills
Inspector mills
I cant attempt to point you in her direction
I didnt see her walking out of the door
If I had taken my time shed be standing here still
Inspector mills
I recall once in my life I felt this way before
But I let her go and closed the door, walk away
Inspector mills I cant attempt to show the hurt in me
And just how much I need the company; search the valleys and the hills
You gotta find her mr. mills
I cant attempt to point you in her direction
I was blinded by the look in her eyes
If I had taken my time shed be sitting here still
Inspector mills
Oo, someday soon I might be in love with her
Inspector mills I guess youve taken quite a look around

Pretty Pathetic

You should've heard me sobbing as I drove home that night,
Got in the bed and stayed there, for days I just layed there,
having been permanently changed but we wont get into that now,
lets take it from the start.
You should've seen me smiling, just like the world was mine,
she used to call me baby softly sometimes.
Well if I dwell on those days too long I feel like my life is over,
and thats no good so lets move on.
To the part where I began to sense her distance I barely can hold on tighter,
and that makes it worse, how am I supposed to take it when she says
"This is something I'm going through, its got nothing to do with you".
I had a special evening all planned out desperately determined to reignite
some spark between us she had to feel something for me,
a love as strong as ours doesnt just go away,
you cant just turn it off, unless she was lying all those times,
but I dont think so I really dont think so, the way she used to look at me,
made me a thousand feet high, the meaning of the word cool,
not the same geek who fumbled with his words that night, the ugliest night.
I sed sum pretty awkward things I got the feeling she felt sorry for me,
I shouldve seen it was hopeless an left it alone, but I had to go on embarassing myself,

Every Time I Close My Eye

Everytime i,
Close my eyes

Listen girl,

But every word I say,
Is straight from the heart

Never meant to hurt you
Oh girl, Im sorry
Of what I put you through
Girl Id do anything for one more chance

I want you back again
(want you back again)
Chorus:
cuz everytime I close my eyes
I see your face
And I wonder
When you close your eyes
