Jeff Buckley Quotes
Words are beautiful but restricted. They're very masculine, with a compact frame. But voice is over the dark, the place where there's nothing to hang on: it comes from a part of yourself that simply knows, expresses itself, and is.
All flowers in time bend towards the sun, I know you say there's no one for you, But here is one.
Words are really beautiful, but they're limited. Words are very male, very structured. But the voice is the netherworld, the darkness, where there's nothing to hang onto. The voice comes from a part of you that just knows and expresses and is.
Music was like my first real toy. I was an only child for a while, and I was alone a lot of the time - and I liked it. I still like being alone.
I've always felt that the quality of the voice is where the real content of a song lies. Words only suggest an experience, but the voice is that experience.
I don't really need to be remembered. I hope the music's remembered.

Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and memories of the signs that it's over. It's over.
Maybe I'm too young to keep good love from going wrong, but tonight you're on my mind, so you never know.
She's a tear that hangs inside my soul forever.
I'm lying in my bed, blanket is warm, this body will never keep me safe from harm. I still feel your hair, black ribbons of coal. Touch my skin to keep me whole. If only you'd come back to me. To feel you at my side, wouldn't need no Mojo Pin to keep me satisfied.
Kiss me out of desire, but not consolation.
To young to hold on and to old to just break free and run.
A tune has to resonate with whatever is happening around it.
I don't want my reputation to take me over, I just want to be judged on my songs. I want people to come and see me because they want to, not because fashion dictates it.
I'm convinced I got signed because of who I am. And it makes me sad.
I made a statement all my own.
The Smiths hasn't been equaled. That goes for the composition of the songs, the lyrics, and the performance.
I've already created my own thing.
