Emotionally wounding songs...

It's been a while since i last try to put the right words to describe feelings. Actually, you know that it's not easy to tell your feelings by words. Because even if you're the best poet, everyone will understand the words in their own way. Joni Mitchel's best effort Blue (1971), yeah i'm sure some of you know this perfect work. It's one of the best album to listen with a couple of tea on your hand. A great voice, meaningful words!
mp3: Joni Mitchell - The Last Time I Saw Richard (1971)

You don't want to be the saddest person or the happiest person in world. Sometimes it's really great to be on your own, thinking of what you left behind, what you will carry on. Maybe the most important one is being happy with what you've got. It's a closing song but a most appreciated one.
mp3: Lambchop - Is A Woman (2002)

After pure jazz vocal of Joni Mitchel and drunk voice of Kurt Wagner, Silver Jews gets a great choice. A marvelous indie rock, country rock combo, and a picky music for between young and old music lovers. Of course descriptions can't be as short as i do. If you want to breathe air of
a song, your favorite song, you should take a look at yourself in mirror while you're listening to.
Eyes don't lie.
mp3: Silver Jews - Living waters (1994)

Sometimes good is not well enough. It's from upcoming Jay Jay Johanson record, play the fool, spend the time, just say 'there is noone to call my friend'. But the most depressive thought is realizing all of these won't change anything.

Joni Mitchel - The Last Time I Saw Richard Lyrics

The last time I saw richard was detroit in 68,
And he told me all romantics meet the same fate someday
Cynical and drunk and boring someone in some dark cafe
You laugh, he said you think youre immune, go look at your eyes
Theyre full of moon
You like roses and kisses and pretty men to tell you
All those pretty lies, pretty lies
When you gonna realise theyre only pretty lies
Only pretty lies, just pretty lies

He put a quarter in the wurlitzer, and he pushed
Three buttons and the thing began to whirr
And a bar maid came by in fishnet stockings and a bow tie
And she said drink up now its gettin on time to close.
Richard, you havent really changed, I said
Its just that now youre romanticizing some pain thats in your head
You got tombs in your eyes, but the songs
You punched are dreaming
Listen, they sing of love so sweet, love so sweet
When you gonna get yourself back on your feet?
Oh and love can be so sweet, love so sweet

Richard got married to a figure skater
And he bought her a dishwasher and a coffee percolator
And he drinks at home now most nights with the tv on
And all the house lights left up bright
Im gonna blow this damn candle out
I dont want nobody comin over to my table
I got nothing to talk to anybody about
All good dreamers pass this way some day
Hidin behind bottles in dark cafes
Dark cafes
Only a dark cocoon before I get my gorgeous wings
And fly away
Only a phase, these dark cafe days

Lambchop Is A Woman Lyrics

In the hour of the girl
You can make this danger witness
Or whatever, without your heart
You can wish you could relate
If it's always gonna be
Sit beside me on a star
If you wake me up tonight

So you try to make it whole
With everybody here
More than a sony
To make the words throw up
Or show me the way
As they pick me up again
They will be there on the couch
They will make you better still
(can you be sure?)

Of anything you make
Maybe you can get a whiff
It's enough to make you gag
It's enough to make you sick
Each and every day
With the concrete and the masonry
When the paint that's on is dry
You can work it from your eye

And you take it from my heart
As you stand alone forever

From the roaming and the surf
And the cloudy cloudy day
Just a boss thing that is pure
Something specially for you
It's like everybody's needing it
And everybody's sure

(and if they say)
Is a woman, write this down
Put the paper, over there
More than it is
No more than it is



The Silver Jews - Living Waters Lyrics

Now people are good and people are bad
and I'm never
sure which one I am
so, come in out of the storm
what
you need is an imitation of home

your at
home
you're all alone
and nobody's calling on
the telephone

Now people are good and people are
bad
people they butch, people they brag
people they
test, people they breast(?)
people make sex, it's their
favourite thing to do(?)

so if you run, then run to
me
and if you can swim then swim to me
just come in out
of the storm
what you need is an imitation of
home

your at home
you're all alone
and
nobody's calling on the telephone
