all Neil Young lyrics



Don't Cry No Tears
Don't cry no tears around me
Don't cry no tears around me
'cause when all the water's gone
The feeling lingers on
Old true love ain't too hard to see
Don't cry no tears around me.

Well I wonder who's with her tonight?
And I wonder who's holding her tight?
But there's nothing I can say
To make him go away
Old true love ain't too hard to see
Don't cry no tears around me.

There's nothing I can say
To make him go away
Old true love ain't too hard to see
Don't cry no tears around me
Don't cry no tears around me.back to top
Danger Bird
Danger bird, he flies alone
And he rides the wind back to his home
Although his wings have turned to stone

And we used to be so calm
Now I think about you all day long that's the moment that he cracked
'cause you've been with another man long ago in the museum with his friends.
Here you are and here I am.

The jailbird takes the raps
And he finds himself spread-eagled on the tracks
But the training that he learned will get him nowhere fast.

And I know we should be free (with the rain pounding on his back he recalls)
But freedom's just a prison to me (the moment that he cracked long ago in the museum)
'cause I lied to keep it kind (with his friends)
When I left you far behind. (and like those memories the rain keeps pounding)
Down, down, down

And though these wings have turned to stone
I can fly fly fly away.
Watch me fly above the city
Like a shadow on the sky.
Fly, fly, fly.back to top
Pardon My Heart
It's a fallen situation
When all eyes are turned in
And a love isn't flowing
The way it could have been.

You brought it all on
Oh, but it feels so wrong
You brought it all on
No, no, no, I don't believe this song
You brought it all on.

It's a sad communication
With little reason to believe
When one isn't giving
And one pretends to receive.

You brought it all on
Oh, but it feels so wrong
You brought it all on
No, no, no, I don't believe this song
You brought it all on.

Pardon my heart
If I showed that I cared
But I love you more than moments
We have or have not shared.

You brought it all on
Oh, and it feels so good
You brought it all on
When love flows the way that it should
You brought it all on.

It feels so good
It feels so good
You feel good.back to top
Lookin' For A Love
I've been looking for a lover
But I haven't met her yet
She'll be nothing like I pictured her to be
In her eyes I will discover
Another reason why
I want to live and make the best of what I see.

Where the sun hits the water
And the mountains meet the sand
There's a beach that I walk along sometimes
And maybe there I'll meet her
And we'll start to say 'hello'
And never stop to think of any other time.

Looking' for a love that's right for me
I don't know how long it's going to be
But I hope I treat her kind
And don't mess with her mind
When she starts to see the darker side of me.

Looking' for a love that's right for me
I don't know how long it's going to be
But I hope I treat her kind
And don't mess with her mind
When she starts to see the darker side of me.

I've been looking for a lover
But I haven't met her yet
She'll be nothing like I pictured her to be
In her eyes I will discover
Another reason why
I want to live and make the best of what I see.back to top
Barstool Blues
If I could hold on to just one thought
For long enough to know
Why my mind is moving so fast
And the conversation is slow.
Burn off all the fog
And let the sun through to the snow
Let me see your face again
Before I have to go.

I have seen you in the movies
And in those magazines at night
I saw you on the barstool when
You held that glass so tight.
And I saw you in my nightmares
But I'll see you in my dreams
And I might live a thousand years
Before I know what that means.

Once there was a friend of mine
Who died a thousand deaths
His life was filled with parasites
And countless idle threats.
He trusted in a woman
And on her he made his bets
Once there was a friend of mine
Who died a thousand deaths.back to top
Stupid Girl
You're just a stupid girl
You really got a lot to learn
Start living again
Forget about remembering
You're such a stupid girl.

You're such a beautiful fish
Floppin' on the summer sand
Lookin' for the wave you missed
When another one is close at hand
You're such a stupid girl.

You're such a stupid girl.

I saw you in mercedes benz
Practicing self-defense
You got it pretty good I guess
I couldn't see your eyes
You're really stupid, girl.

You're such a stupid girl.back to top
Drive Back
Whatever gets you through the night
That's all right with me
When it's time to say goodbye
I have to make you see

You won't know me
I won't call you
I won't be there
To remind you
What you told me
When I showed you
In the morning
Let me know you'll

Drive back to your old town
I wanna wake up with no-one around
Drive back to your old town.

If somebody
Is haunting your mind
Look in my eyes
Let me hide you
From yourself and
All your old friends
Every good thing
Comes to an end.

Drive back, drive back, drive back.

Drive back to your old town
I wanna wake up with no-one around
Drive back to your old town.back to top
Cortez The Killer
He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
In that palace in the sun.

On the shore lay montezuma
With his coca leaves and pearls
In his halls he often wondered
With the secrets of the worlds.

And his subjects gathered 'round him
Like the leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many colors
For the angry gods to see.

And the women all were beautiful
And the men stood straight and strong
They offered life in sacrifice
So that others could go on.

Hate was just a legend
And war was never known
The people worked together
And they lifted many stones.

They carried them to the flatlands
And they died along the way
But they built up with their bare hands
What we still can't do today.

And I know she's living there
And she loves me to this day
I still can't remember when
Or how I lost my way.

He came dancing across the water
Cortez, cortez
What a killer.back to top
Through My Sails
Still glaring from the city lights
Into paradise I soared
Unable to come down
For reasons I'd ignored.

Total confusion,
Disillusion
New things I'm knowin'.

I'm standing on the shoreline
It's so fine out there
Leaving with the wind blowing
But love takes care.

Know me, know me
Show me, show me
New things I'm knowin'.

Wind blowing through my sails
It feels like I'm gone
Leaving with the wind blowing
Through my sails.back to top
