all Neil Young lyrics



Tell Me Why
Sailing heart-ships thru broken harbors
Out on the waves in the night
Still the searcher must ride the dark horse
Racing alone in his fright.
Tell me why, tell me why

Is it hard to make arrangements with yourself,
When your old enough to repay but young enough to sell?

Tell me lies later, come and see me
I'll be around for a while.
I am lonely but you can free me
All in the way that you smile
Tell me why, tell me why

Is it hard to make arrangements with yourself,
When your old enough to repay but young enough to sell?

Tell me why, tell me why
Tell me why, tell me whyback to top
After The Gold Rush
Neil Young - After The Goldrush




Well, I dreamed I saw the knights in armor coming,
Saying something about a queen.
There were peasants singing, and drummers drumming,
And the archers split the tree.
There was a fanfare blowing to the sun,
There was floating on the breeze.
Look at Mother Nature on the run,
In the Nineteen-Seventies.

Look at Mother Nature on the run,
In the Nineteen-Seventies.

I was lying in the burned-out basement,
With the full moon in my eyes.
I was hoping for replacement,
When the sun burst through the sky.
There was a band playing in my head,
And I felt like getting high.
I was thinking about what a friend had said,
I was hoping it was a lie.

Thinking about what a friend had said,
I was hoping it was a lie.

Well, I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flying
In the yellow haze of the sun.
There was children crying and colors flying,
All around the Chosen Ones.
All in a dream, all in a dream,
The loading had begun.
Flying Mother Nature's silver seed
To a new home in the sun.

Flying Mother Nature's silver seed
To a new home.back to top
Only Love Can Break Your Heart
When you were young and on your own
How did it feel to be alone?
I was always thinking of games that I was playing.
Trying to make the best of my time.

But only love can break your heart
Try to be sure right from the start
Yes only love can break your heart
What if your world should fall apart?

I have a friend I've never seen
He hides his head inside a dream
Someone should call him and see if he can come out.
Try to lose the down that he's found.

But only love can break your heart
Try to be sure right from the start
Yes only love can break your heart
What if your world should fall apart?

I have a friend I've never seen
He hides his head inside a dream
Yes, only love can break your heart
Yes, only love can break your heartback to top
Southern Man
Southern man better keep your head
Don't forget what your good book said
Southern change gonna come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast
Southern man

I saw cotton and I saw black
Tall white mansions and little shacks.
Southern man when will you pay them back?
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking
How long? how long?

Southern man better keep your head
Don't forget what your good book said
Southern change gonna come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast
Southern man

Lily belle, your hair is golden brown
I've seen your black man comin' round
Swear by God I'm gonna cut him down!
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking
How long? how long?back to top
Till The Morning Comes
I'm gonna give you till the morning comes
Till the morning comes, till the morning comes.

I'm only waiting till the morning comes
Till the morning comes, till the morning comes.back to top
Don't Let It Bring You Down
Old man lying by the side of the road
With the lorries rolling by,
Blue moon sinking from the weight of the load
And the building scrape the sky,
Cold wind ripping down the allay at dawn
And the morning paper flies,
Dead man lying by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes.

Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burning,
Find someone who's turning
And you will come around.

Blind man running through the light of the night
With an answer in his hand,
Come on down to the river of sight
And you can really understand,
Red lights flashing through the window in the rain,
Can you hear the sirens moan?
White cane lying in a gutter in the lane,
If you're walking home alone.

Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burning,
Just find someone who's turning
And you will come around.

Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burning,
Just find someone who's turning
And you will come around.back to top
Birds
Lover, there will be another one
Who'll hover over you beneath the sun
Tomorrow see the things that never come
Today

When you see me
Fly away without you
Shadow on the things you know
Feathers fall around you
And show you the way to go
It's over, it's over.

Nestled in your wings my little one
This special morning brings another sun
Tomorrow see the things that never come
Today

When you see me
Fly away without you
Shadow on the things you know
Feathers fall around you
And show you the way to go
It's over, it's over.back to top
When You Dance You Can Really Love
When we were living togetherI thought that I knew you would stay.Still when you left meI tried to pretend we could make it some way.
I don't care if all of the mountainsTurn to dust in the air.(What did you do to my life?)It isn't fair that I shouldWake up at dawnAnd not find you there(What did you do to my life?)
It's hard enough losingWithout the confusion of knowing I tried.But you've made your mind upThat I'll be alone now there's nothing to hide.
I don't care if all of the mountainsTurn to dust in the air.(What did you do to my life?)It isn't fair that I shouldWake up at dawnAnd not find you there(What did you do to my life?)back to top
I Believe In You
Now that you found yourself losing your mind
Are you here again?
Finding that what you once thought was real
Is gone, and changing?

Now that you made yourself love me
Do you think I can change it in a day?
How can I place you above me?
Am I lying to you when I say
That I believe in you
I believe in you.

Coming to you at night I see my questions
I feel my doubts
Wishing that maybe in a year or two
We could laugh and let it all out

Now that you made yourself love me
Do you think I can change it in a day?
How can I place you above me?
Am I lying to you when I say
That I believe in you
I believe in you.back to top
Cripple Creek Ferry
Hey, hey cripple creek ferry
Butting through the overhanging trees
Make way for the cripple creek ferry
The waters going down it's a mighty tight squeeze.

All alone the captain stands
Hasn't heard from his deck hands.
The gambler tips his hat and walks towards the door.
It's the second half of the cruise.
And you know he hates to lose.

Hey, hey cripple creek ferry
Butting through the overhanging trees
Make way for the cripple creek ferry
The waters going down it's a mighty tight squeeze.back to top
