Music is as old as mankind but to my mind there only few lyrics that really stand out without the voice that sings it and the instruments that play in the background. What I´m aiming at are lyrics of poetic value, that enrich everyday life by their insights, depth and meaning. Here are some of my favourites: "The blizzard of the world has crossed the threshold and has overturned the order of the soul." (The Future / Leonard Cohen) "A soul in tension that’s learning to fly, condition grounded but determined to try, can’t keep my eyes from the circling skies, tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I." (Learning to Fly / Pink Floyd) "The man in me will hide sometimes to keep from being seen, But that's just because he doesn't want to turn into some machine." (The Man In Me / Bob Dylan) Please feel welcome if you also want to contribute some of your favourite music.
