@ALBUM: Presence ARTIST: Led Zeppelin @SONG: Achilles Last Stand It was an April morning When they told us we should go As I turn to you You smiled at me How could we say no? With all the fun to have To live the dreams we always had Woa the songs to sing When we at last return again Sending off a glancing kiss To those who claim they know To know the streets the seaman hears The devil is in his hole Oh to sail away To sandy lands and other days Oh to touch the dream Hides inside and never seen, yeah Into the sun the south the north Lies the first of hope The shackles of commitment fell In pieces on the ground Oh to ride the wind To tread the air above the din Oh to laugh aloud Dancing as we fought the crowd To seek the man whose pointing hand The giant step unfolds With guidance from the curving path That churns up into stone If one bell should ring In celebration for a king So fast the heart should beat As proud the head with heavy feet, yeah (Cool Guitar Solo) Days went by when you and I Made an eternal summers glow As far away and distant Our mutual time to grow Oh the sweet refrain Soothes the soul and calms the pain Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again Wandering upon the rings What place to rest the search The mighty arms of Atlas Hold the heavens from the earth The mighty arms of Atlas Hold the heavens from the earth From the earth Ooooooooooooooh I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way (2x) Ooh, ahh, etc... Oh the mighty arms of Atlas Hold the heavens from the earth Oooh, ahh, etc... ==================== @SONG: For Your Life You said I was the only, oh, oh With my lemon in your hand Exhibition is your habit Emotions second hand, oh, oh Had to pull away to save me Maybe next time around And she said, don't you wannit? Don't you want coca-coca-cocaine? Hadn't planned to, could not stand to Try it, friend, yeah, na, na, yeah Whoo ooh ooh ooh Heard a cry for mercy In the city of the damned Oh oh babe, damned Impossible to go lower The next stop's on the ground Oh, low on the ground You want to know is it quite over To fame and tears and losing hair And I said didn't mean to... did not mean to f-fail You didn't plan it, you overran it...yeeeeeeah! You wanna do it, you wanna You wanna do it when you wanna You wanna do it, do it when you wanna When you blow it, babe You got to blow it right Oh baby, if you fake it, mama Baby, fake with all your might When you fake it, mama Please fake it right For yourself, babe, will you fake it? You're fakin' it for your life For your life For your life For your life Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it Do it when you wanna Do it, do it, do it Do it when you wanna Oh, I can have you, baby But I don't know what to do, yeah Sometime, baby, nothin' I could do Wanna find myself a crystal Payin' through the nose And when they couldn't resist you I said "Just go with the flow" And now your stage is empty and now the curtain, baby please. Fold up your show Hadn't planned to Could not stand to (fryin!) Hadn't planned it I over ran in (fryin!) For your life For your life ==================== @SONG: Royal Orleans One town love You better take care how you use it Try to make it last all night And if you take your pick Be careful how you choose it Sometimes its hard to feel it bite Feel it bite A man I know, went down to Louisiana Had himself a bad, bad fight And when the sun peeks through John Cameron he sees (sandy???) He kissed the whiskers and left and right Whiskers! Now, now, now A fight subsides Out at a hotel in the quarter A friendship took a bash tonight Now love gets hot Look far for a sea with water Grew whiskers sittin' there through the night Whiskers! Down on Bourbon street You know it's right You can see my friend When they run around us in the night Most everywhere Until the closet's bare Run for the razor, fun Doin' up my hair New Orleans queens Sure know how to schmooz it Maybe for some that seems alright When I step out I'm struck down with my sugar She wears my cloak like fairy white Now, one town love Take care how you use it And try to make it last all night Take your pick Be careful how you choose it Sometimes it's hard to feel it bite. ==================== @SONG: Nobody's Fault But Mine Ah, ah, ah ... Oh, nobody's fault but mine Nobody's fault but mine, yeah Trying to save my soul to light Oh, it's nobody's fault but mine Devil he told me to roll The devil he told me to roll How to roll the line tonight Nobody's fault but mine Ah, ah, ah ... Somebody show me the (gun? door? gong?) Somebody show me the ding dong ding dong I will get down rolling tonight ?????????

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah La, la, la, la, la, la Corner of Bleeker and nowhere In the land of not quite day A shiver runs down my backbone Face in the mirror turns grey So, I looked 'round for a hitch from a reindeer Said you oughtta find him out in the day I turned 'round to look for the snowman To my surprise he'd melted away, yeah La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah La, la, la, la, la, la The moon and the stars out of order As the tide tends to ebb and sway The sun in my soul's sinking lower While the hope in my hands turns to clay I don't ask that my feet fall on clover I don't roam at opportunity's door Why don't you ask my advice, take it slower Then your story'd be your finest reward ?????????? La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah La, la, la, la, la, la Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh [guitar solo] Lost on the path to attainment Search in the eyes of the wise When I bled from the heart of the matter (matchhead?) I started bleeding without a disguise Now everything's finally happened Now and then you've got to take time to pause When you're down on the ground, don't be messin' around Or you'll land in a boat without oars La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah La, la, la, la, la, la Hey babe, Hey babe, Hey babe, I lost my way.

Let me tell you now, babe Let me tell you That it feels so good that it must be right Now my babe, Let me tell you That it feels so good that it must be right Now my babe, Let me tell you If it feels, if it feels, if it feels, if it feels so good, so good, so good Oh, yes. ==================== @SONG: Tea For One How come twenty four hours Baby sometimes seem to slip into days Oh twenty-four hours Baby sometimes seem to slip into days When a minute seems like a lifetime Ooh baby when I feel this way Sittin, lookin at the clock Oh time moves so slow I've been watchin for the hands to move Until I just can't look no more How come twenty four hours Baby sometimes seems to slip into days A minute seems like a lifetime Baby when I feel this way To sing a song for you I recall you used to say "Oh baby this one's for we too" Which in the end is you anyway How come twenty four hours Baby sometimes slip into days A minute seems like a lifetime Oh baby when I feel this way There was a time that I stood tall In the eyes of other men But by my own choice I left you woman And now I can't get back again How come twenty-four hours Sometimes slip into days Well well well A minute seems like a lifetime Baby when I feel this way A minute seems like a lifetime Oh baby When I feel this way...I feel this way -------------------------------------- Lyrics by Digital Graffiti, the Led Zeppelin mailing list.
