    How am I supposed to know that you're high if you won't let me touch you?

    How am I supposed to know that you're high if you won't even dance?

    If I was to smile and I held out my hand
    If I opened it now would you not understand?

    Like the coldest winter chill
    Heaven beside you... Hell within
    Like the coldest winter chill
    Heaven beside you... Hell within
    Like the coldest winter will
    Heaven beside you... Hell within
    And you think you have it still, heaven inside you

    "Moonlight Drive"

    Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
    Let's climb through the tide
    Penetrate the evenin' that the
    City sleeps to hide
    Let's swim out tonight, love
    It's our turn to try
    Parked beside the ocean
    On our moonlight drive

    Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
    Let's climb through the tide
    Surrender to the waiting worlds
    That lap against our side

    Nothin' left open
    And no time to decide
    We've stepped into a river
    On our moonlight drive

    Let's swim to the moon
    Let's climb through the tide
    You reach your hand to hold me
    But I can't be your guide

    Easy, I love you
    As I watch you glide
    Falling through wet forests
    On our moonlight drive, baby
    Moonlight drive

    Come on, baby, gonna take a little ride
    Down, down by the ocean side
    Gonna get real close
    Get real tight
    Baby gonna drown tonight
    Goin' down, down, down



    THE DOORS-Moonlight Drive

    Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine
    Meltin' in a pot of thieves
    Wild card up my sleeve
    Thick heart of stone
    My sins my own
    They belong to me, me

  • And the truth will rise above
    and fiction fall beneath,
    though the lies may bite
    the truth has all the teeth,
    you see us as a window,
    you're happy that we're here
    Exposed to all the elements
    While inside all is clear

    And these children that you spit on
    As they try to change their worlds
    Are immune to your consultations
    They're quite aware of what they're going through

    Ch-ch-changes
    Oh, look out you rock 'n rollers
    Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

    Pretty soon now you're gonna get older
    Time may change me
    But I can't trace time
    I said that time may change me
    But I can't trace time

    THE DIRECTION OF THE EYE
    SO MISLEADING
    THE DEFECTION OF THE SOUL
    NAUSEOUSLY QUCK
    I DONT QUESTION OUR EXSISTANCE
    I JUST QUESTION OUR MODERN NEEDS.?

    Have listened to these lines for 20 years and the deeper I look the further ithey blow me the fck away,especially in today's world
    Yet to find lines that could match them,pure art

    Come as you are, as you were
    As I want you to be
    As a friend, as a friend
    As an old enemy

    Take your time, hurry up
    Choice is yours, don't be late
    Take a rest as a friend
    As an old

    Memoria, memoria
    Memoria, memoria

    Come doused in mud, soaked in bleach
    As I want you to be
    As a trend, as a friend
    As an old

    Memoria, memoria
    Memoria, memoria

    When I swear that I don't have a gun
    No I don't have a gun
    No I don't have a gun

    Memoria, memoria
    Memoria, memoria

    When I swear that I don't have a gun
    No I don't have a gun
    No I don't have a gun
    No I don't have a gun
    No I don't have a gun

  • When I'm tired and thinking cold
    I hide in my music, forget the day
    And dream of a girl I used to know
    I closed my eyes and she slipped away
    She slipped away.

    ... Don't we all do that sometimes

    Well I'm a runnin' down the road try'n to loosen my load
    I've got seven women on my mind
    Four that want to own me, two that want to stone me
    One says she's a friend of mine
    Take it easy, take it easy
    Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
    Lighten up while you still can
    Don't even try to understand
    Just find a place to make your stand, and take it easy
    Well, I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
    Such a fine sight to see
    It's a girl my Lord in a flat-bed Ford
    Slowin' down to take a look at me
    Come on, baby, don't say maybe
    I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me
    We may lose and we may win, though we will never be here again
    So open up I'm climbin' in, so take it easy
    Well, I'm a runnin' down the road tryin' to loosen my load
    Got a world of trouble on my mind
    Lookin' for a lover who won't blow my cover, she's so hard to find
    Take it easy, take it easy
    Don't let the sound of your own wheels make you crazy
    Come on baby, don't say maybe
    I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me

    As I sat sadly by her side
    The kitten she did gently pass
    Over to me and again we pressed
    Our different faces to the glass

    That may be very well, I said
    But watch the one fallin' in the street
    See him gesture to his neighbors
    And see him trampled beneath their feet

    All outward motion connects to nothin'
    For each is concerned with their immediate need
    Witness the man reachin' up from the gutter
    See the other one stumblin' on who can not see

    With tremblin' hand I turned toward her
    And pushed the hair out of her eyes
    The kitten jumped back to her lap
    As I sat sadly by her side

    Then she drew the curtains down
    And said, oh, when will you ever learn?
    That what happens there beyond the glass
    Is simply none of your concern

    God has given you but one heart
    You are not a home for the hearts of your brothers
    And God does not care for your benevolence
    Anymore than he cares for the lack of it in others

    Nor does he care for you to sit
    At windows in judgment of the world He created
    While sorrows pile up around you
    Ugly, useless and over inflated

    At which she turned her head away
    Great tears leapin' from her eyes
    I could not wipe the smile from my face
    As I sat sadly by her side

    As I sat sadly by her side
    As I sat sadly by her side
    As I sat sadly by her side

    Straight To You

    All the towers of ivory are crumbling
    And the swallows have sharpened their beaks
    This is the time of our great undoing
    This is the time that I’ll come running
    Straight to you
    For I am captured
    Straight to you
    For I am captured
    One more time

    The light in our window is fading
    The candle gutters on the ledge
    Well now sorrow, it comes a-stealing
    And I’ll cry, girl, but I’ll come a-running
    Straight to you
    For I am captured
    Once again

    Gone are the days of rainbows
    Gone are the nights of swinging from the stars
    For the sea will swallow up the mountains
    And the sky will throw thunder-bolts and sparks
    Straight at you
    But I’ll come a-running
    Straight to you
    But I’ll come a-running
    One more time

    Heaven has denied us its kingdom
    The saints are drunk and howling at the moon
    The chariots of angels are colliding
    Well, I’ll run, babe, but I’ll come running
    Straight to you
    For I am captured
    Straight to you
    For I am captured
    One more time

    Well, sweet little sista's high as hell, cheating on a halo
    Grind in an odyssey, a holocaust, a heart kicking on tomorrow
    And a breakdown agony, I said an extacy in overdrive
    We're riding on the world, Thunder kissin' nineteen sixty five, yeah wow

    "Moonlight Mile"

    When the wind blows and the rain feels cold
    With a head full of snow
    With a head full of snow
    In the window there's a face you know
    Don't the nights pass slow
    Don't the nights pass slow
    The sound of strangers sending nothing to my mind
    Just another mad mad day on the road
    I am just living to be lying by your side
    But I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road
    Made a rag pile of my shiny clothes
    Gonna warm my bones
    Gonna warm my bones
    I got silence on my radio
    Let the air waves flow
    Let the air waves flow
    Oh I'm sleeping under strange strange skies
    Just another mad mad day on the road
    My dreams is fading down the railway line
    I'm just about a moonlight mile down the road
    I'm hiding sister and I'm dreaming
    I'm riding down your moonlight mile
    I'm hiding baby and I'm dreaming
    I'm riding down your moonlight mile
    I'm riding down you moonlight mile
    Let it go now, come on up babe
    Yeah, let it go now
    Yeah, flow now baby
    Yeah move on now yeah
    Yeah, I'm coming home
    'Cause, I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road
    Down the road, down the road

    If I could throw this lifeless
    Lifeline to the wind
    Leave this heart of clay
    See you walk, walk away
    Into the night
    And through the rain
    Into the half-light
    And through the flame

    If I could, through myself
    Set your spirit free
    I'd lead your heart away
    See you break, break away
    Into the light
    And to the day

    Sad to, sad to think
    Sad to think of him all alone

    Lonesome friend, we all knew
    Always hoped you'd pull through

    No blame, no blame
    No blame, it could be you
    if not for love I would be drowning, I've seen it work both ways
