Built To Last Lyrics

in Built To Last Album

There are times that you can beckon
There are times when you must call
You can shake a ton of reckoning
But you can't shake it all
There are times when I can help you out
And times that you must fall
There are times when you must live in doubt
And I can't help at all

Three blue stars / Rise on the hill
Say no more, now / Just be still
All these trials / Soon be past
Look for something / Built to last

Wind held by the collar
Got a cloud held by the breeze
You can walk on coals of fire
But sometimes you must freeze
There are times when you offend me
And I do the same to you
If we can't or won't forget it,
then I guess we could be through

One blue star / Sets on the hill
Call it back / You never will
One more star / Sinks in the past
Show me something / Built to last.

Built to last till time itself
Falls tumbling from the wall
Built to last till sunshine fails
And darkness moves on all
Built to last while years roll past
Like cloudscapes in the sky
Show me something built to last
Or something built to try

There are times when you get hit upon
Try hard but you cannot give
Other times you'd gladly part
With what you need to live
Don't waste the breath to save your face
When you have done your best
And even more is asked of you
Let fate decide the rest.

All the stars / Are gone but one
Morning breaks / Here comes the sun
Cross the sky now / Sinking fast
Show me something / Built to last

We Can Run, But We Can't Hide Lyrics

We Can Run, But We Can't Hide Lyrics | Grateful Dead

We don't own this place, though we act as if we did, It's a loan from the children of our children's kids. The actual owners haven't even been born yet. But we never tend the garden and rarely we pay the rent, Some of it is broken and the rest of it is bent Put it all on plastic and I wonder where we'll be when the bills hit. [Chorus:] We can run, But we can't hide from it. Of all possible worlds, We only got one: We gotta to ride on it. Whatever we've done, We'll never get far from what we leave behind, Baby, we can run, run, run, but we...

I Will Take You Home (Little Girl Lost) Lyrics

I Will Take You Home (Little Girl Lost) Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Little girl lost In a forest of dreams. It's a dark old wood And it's damp with dew. Hoot owl hoots For a moment it seems Something big and cold Just got ahold of you. Just when everything gets scary, Daddy's come 'round for his darlin' again. Hold my hand with your little fingers. Daddy's loving arms gonna gather you in. Ain't no way the Bogeyman can get you, You can close your eyes, the world is gonna let you, Your daddy's here and never will forget you, I will take you home. I will take you home. Gonna carry you back home In my arms. I will...

Picasso Moon Lyrics

Picasso Moon Lyrics | Grateful Dead

South of Market in the land of ruin You get all manner of action Tinsel tigers in The Metal Room Stalking satisfaction. They got 'em packaged up for love and money Tattooed tots and chrome spike bunnies Check my conscience at the DMZ And roll on in, gonna roll in it, honey But I get a feelin like when big things collide Like the crack before the thunder, like I really ought to hide And here comes Metal Angel, she looks ready to ride; & What's that she's tryin' to show me..? What's that you're tryin' to show me..? [Chorus:] Picasso Moon,...

Blow Away Lyrics

Blow Away Lyrics | Grateful Dead

A man and a woman come together as strangers When they part they're usually strangers still It's like a practical joke played on us by our Maker Empty bottles that can't be filled [Chorus] Baby who's to say it could have been different now that it's done Baby who's to say that it should have been, anyway Baby who's to say that it even matters in the long run Give it just a minute And it will blow away It'll blow away You fancy me to be the master of your feelings You barely bruise me with your looks to kill Though I admit we were sometimes...

Standing On The Moon Lyrics

Standing On The Moon Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Standing on the moon I got no cobweb on my shoe Standing on the moon I'm feeling so alone and blue I see the Gulf of Mexico As tiny as a tear The coast of California Must be somewhere over here - over here Standing on the moon I see the battle rage below Standing on the moon I see the soldiers come and go There's a metal flag beside me Someone planted long ago Old Glory standing stiffly Crimson, white and indigo - indigo I see all of Southeast Asia I can see El Salvador I hear the cries of children And the other songs of war It's like a mighty...

Just A Little Light Lyrics

Just A Little Light Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Well, there ain't nobody safer than someone who doesn't care And it isn't even lonely when no one's ever there I had a lot of dreams once, but some of them came true... The honey's sometimes bitter when fortune falls on you So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise alright But here you're trembling like a sparrow, I will try with all my might To give you just a little sweetness... Just a little sweetness... Just a little light. I have always heard that virtue oughta be its own...

Foolish Heart Lyrics

Foolish Heart Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Carve your name Carve your name in ice and wind Search for where Search for where the rivers end Or where the rivers start Do everything that's in you That you feel to be your part But never give your love, my friend, Unto a foolish heart Leap from ledges Leap from ledges high and wild Learn to speak Speak with wisdom like a child Directly from the heart Crown yourself the king of clowns Or stand way back apart But never give your love, my friend Unto a foolish heart Shun a friend Shun a brother and a friend Never look Never look around the...
