all Jimi Hendrix lyrics

Up From The Skies
I just want to talk to you, I won't do you no harm
I just want to know about your different lives on this here people
I heard some of you got your families
Living in cages tall and cold
And some just stay there and dust away
Past the age of old
Is this true?
Please let me talk to you.

I just want to know about the rooms behind your minds
Do I see a vacuum there or am I going blind?
Or is it just remains from vibrations and echoes long ago
Things like 'Love the World' and 'Let your fancy flow'
Is this true?
Please let me talk to you,
let me talk to you.

I have lived here before the days of ice
And of course this is why I'm so concerned
And I come back to find the stars misplaced
And the smell of a world that has burned
The smell of a world that has burned

Well maybe maybe, it's just a change of climate
I can dig it, I can dig it, baby, I just want to see
So where do I purchase my ticket
I would just like to have a ring side seat
I want to know about the new Mother Earth
I want to hear and see everythingback to top
Spanish Castle Magic
It's very far away, it takes about half a day to get there
If we travel by my dragonfly
No, it's not in Spain, but all the same
You know it's a groovy name
And the wind's just right

Hang on, my darling
Hang on, if you want to go
You know it's a really groovy place
And it's just a little bit of Spanish Castle Magic

The clouds are really low and they overflow
With cotton candy and battle grounds red and brown
But it's all in your mind
Don't think your time on bad things
Just float your little mind around - look out

Hang on, my darling, yeah
Hang on, if you want to go
It puts everything else on the shelf
With just a little bit of Spanish Castle Magic
With just a little bit of daydream here and thereback to top
Wait Until Tomorrow

Ain't No Telling

Little Wing
Well she was walking thru the clouds
With a circus mind that's running wild
Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams and fairy tales
(that's all she ever thinks about)
Riding with the wind

When I'm sad she comes to me
With a thousand smiles she gives to me free
It's alright, she says, it's alright
Take anything you want from me, anything
Fly on, Little Wingback to top
If 6 Was 9
If the sun refuse to shine
I don't mind
I don't mind
If the mountains fell in the sea
Let it be
It ain't me
Got my own world to look thru
And I ain't gonna copy you

Now if 6 turned out to be 9
I don't mind
I don't mind
If all the hippies cut off all their hair
I don't care
I don't care
Dig it
Got my own world to look thru
And I ain't gonna copy you

White collared conservative flashing down the street
Pointing their plastic fingers at me
They're hoping soon my kind will drop and die
But I'm gonna wave my freak flag high, high

Fall mountain, just don't fall on me
Hello, Mr. Businessman, why you ain't dressed like me?

I'm the one who has to die when it's time for me to die
So let me live my life the way I want to
Sing on, brother,
Play on, drummerback to top
You've Got Me Floatin'

Castles Made Of Sand
Down the street you can hear her scream 'You're a disgrace'
As she slams the door in his drunken face
And now he stands outside
And all of the neighbours start to gossip and drool

He cries 'Oh girl, you must be mad,
What happened to the sweet love you and me had?'
Against the door he leans and start a scene
As his tears fall and burn the garden green.

And so castles made of sand
Fall into the sea eventually

A little Indian brave who before he was ten
Played war games in the woods with his Indian friends
And he built a dream that when he grew up
He would be a fearless warrior Indian chief

Many moons passed and more the dream grew strong
Until tomorrow he would sing his first war song
And fight his first battle, but something went wrong
Surprise attack killed him in his sleep that night

And so castles made of sand
Melt into the sea eventually

There was a young girl whose heart was a frown
Because she was crippled for life and could speak a sound
And she wished and prayed she would stop living
So she decided to die

She drew her wheel-chair to the edge of the shore
And to her legs she smiled 'You won't hurt me no more'
But then a sight she'd never seen made her jump and say
'Look, a golden winged ship is passing my way'
And it really didn't have to stop, it just kept on going

And so castles made of sand
Slip into the sea eventuallyback to top
She's So Fine
back to top
One Rainy Wish
back to top
Little Miss Lover
back to top
Bold As Love
Anger he smiles, towering in shiny metallic purple armor
Queen jealousy, envy waits behind him
Her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground
Blue are the life giving waters taking for granted
They quietly understand.
Once happy Turquoise armies lay opposite ready
But wonder why the fight is on

But they're all bold as love
they're all bold as love
they're all bold as love
Just ask the Axis

My Red is so confident
He flashes trophies of war and ribbons of euphoria
Orange is young, full of daring
But very unsteady for the first go round
My Yellow in this case is not so mellow
In fact I'm trying to say that it's frightened like me
And all this emotions of mine
Keep holding me from giving my life to a rainbow like you

But I'm, yeah, I'm bold as love
Well, I'm bold, bold as love
I'm bold as love
Just ask the Axis, he knows everything
