Buckley, Jeff - She Is Free Lyrics




Cold wind blow this waiting blood,
Flow into my ashen arms.
Ice stream prick my sleeping skin.
She is like the so black time,
Race on in and never go away.
She's just like this wind.

Black Car, with your creaking wheel,
Take away these thoughts of mine.

Once there was a crazy man
Staring from his drunken eyes,
Staring stony into her elbow's way
Stared at me and tellin' me,
'Stead of 'oh, poor lonely me,
I claw the bed and I claw my hair.

Oh black car, with your creaking wheel,
Take away these thoughts of mine.
Pictures sing in rhythm with 'em.
Dig the holes for me to sleep inside.

She is free,
A shadow crossing the sky,
Free from hope and this misery.
She's beautiful, so beautiful away from me.
She is free.
She is free.

Instead of me is this creaking wheel,
Take away these thoughts of mine
Pictures sing in rhythm with 'em
Dig the holes for me to sleep inside

Black car, with your creaking wheels
Take away these thoughts of mine
Catch us sing in rhythm with 'em.
Dig both holes for me to sleep inside

She is free.
Shadow crossing the sky.
Free from hope and this misery.
So beautiful away from me.
She is free.
She is free

    Cold wind blow this waiting blood
    Flow into my ashen arms
    Ice stream prick my sleeping skin
    She is like the so black time
    Race on in and never go away
    She's just like the wind
    Black car with your creaking wheel
    Take away these thoughts of mine
    Once there was a crazy man
    Staring from his drunken eyes
    Staring stony into her elbow's way
    Stared at me and telling me

    I claw the bed and I claw my hair
    Oh black car with your creaking wheel

    A shadow crossing the sky
    Free from hope and this misery
    She's beautiful, so beautiful away from me
    She is free
    She is free

    Shadow crossing the sky

    So beautiful away from me
    She is free
    She is free

    he sounds so young and shy here. I wonder if he knew the earth shattering potential he really had. I miss him dearly

    owenhunt

    But look at this this way...

    You are free! Away from him. Free to browse his songs like a phantom in the sky. You are released, from his triumphs and charms. In retrograde you soak in his B-sides. A creaking disc with your fingers upon the needle. You are FREE. :)

  6. J.S. Carie

    favorite track of these recordings

  7. katherinaJee55

    "I'm a romanticist, Not in a nostalgic sense nor in a psychotic sense, but just someone he carries romanticism in his heart. It has to do with hope, on the one hand, and a sleazy kind of cynicism on the other. I love reality for what it is, but also the reality as it should be: without human blood flowing through African rivers, without the mentally ill who are condemned to a life on the streets. I still take the world as it is, with all its misery, diseases, villains, heroes and saints. I do not want to live in another era. Hippies are boring and nostalgia is just fun for a short while. I do not like to fantasize, but I do like daydreaming. I do no build castles in the air." - Jeff Buckley ♥

    Dreamwell

    Wow. Thanks for that bit. "Reality as it should be" - that's the takeaway for me.

  8. Fergie Hunter

    I know EXACTLY how you feel Gabrielle Lima!!

  9. Gabby

    How am I ever going to get a boyfriend when the only man I have ever wanted is him.

    Dawsome

    omg I love you

    Franco Ignacio Torres

    He is the only reason of why i doubt of my sexuality.... :P

    Scott Naughton

    I turned bi for this man

    Jean Lowe

    @Scott Naughton he was very ackward in his skin in his younger days... in pain finding himself... I lived in OC... I know..:(.. too sad... he was consummed.. he changed so much being on the road... drained and trippin is the words

  10. elevenart

    Jeff, before voice training. wonderful.
    It's like a supermodel without makeup - still exquisite to behold

    Caveguy22

    Jeff had voice training?

  11. alanah brady

    hehe, even John Mayer would agree with that! strange how this old world turns, when John Mayer is even mentioned in comparison to the supreme Jeff Buckley!

  12. Pamela Chiarappa

    finally free,again, Jeff

  13. fufu8488

    i loves jeffs love songs. the happy ones or at least have a happy instrumental tune like jewel box and this one. makes one happy to feel pain as humans do and should. DONT HIDE WHO YOU ARE HE SAID SOMETHING LIKE THAT

  14. Fionnghula Thell

    what a lovely little weirdo...

  15. Fionnghula Thell

    I can't wait to order this album..just found out about it. I guess the internets are good for something anymore. :)

  16. El alado negro

    You´re welcome my friend. I hope see you soon in Chile, Lee Ranaldo is here in june, you could be the next.

    Good day (10:15 am- Coyhaique, Chile)

  17. Gary Lucas

    thank you so much my friend!

  18. El alado negro

    Is beautiful when Gary talks about this song with Jeff. Greetings from Chile.

  19. Brigita Mencigar

    ....yeah!!! Love forever from Slovenia

  20. Paula K

    John Mayer is NOTHING like Jeff Buckley and never will be. Jeff's voice and is much more amazing. TINML is right, that comparison is a HUGE insult to Jeff Buckley and his music.

  21. Gary Lucas

    at that time I used a DiMarzio pickup on my Gibson '46 J-45 and ran it through a couple pedals into a Roland JC-120 amp--Jeff's vocals are going into the other channel of that same amp here!

  22. lifeismelody11211994

    i love jeff...hes my inspiration...i feel i just found a pot of gold ....thanks for this:0

  23. alanah brady

    so right, nothing else to say!

  24. alanah brady

    love it, love you, love Jeff! thank you soooo much, love forever from Ireland

  25. jessfher1611

    Jesus, stop comparing Jeff to ANYONE!
    There is ABSOLUTELY NO COMPARISON.
    PERIOD.

  26. jessfher1611

    Fuck john mayer.

  27. TINML

    Wow that's an acoustic guitar? How'd you make it sound so "electric" ?

  28. Gary Lucas

    a Buckley/Lucas song--originally a demo of just Jeff's voice and my acoustic guitar
    recorded in my apt. in NYC 2/92
    horns and rhythm section later overdubbed by the producer Hal Willner for our "Songs to No One" album

    Armando Gonzalez

    I wish I could fill that void.

  29. splaticon5

    Love Gary's guitar in this song. Very metallic sound

  30. splaticon5

    @parkercr JM is great but he lacks some of that aggression that Jeff had. Even on Hallelujah, there was a touch of aggression lurking underneath, which to me is what makes the song so powerful.

  31. Junk Food

    something in this song reminds me of Van Morrison

    Reg Walsh

    Shades of the Blue Nile too.

  32. dlmoura2005

    @TINML agreed!

  33. GreenRad2012

    GSC: ..out of your claws and HELL-to-the-NO, I'm not looking back. I AM FREE.

  34. lalalynsy

    So beautiful...

  35. Mr Vibroverb

    i have the album this song is on. its a freakin awesome album!!!!!

  36. JD.McMillan

    lol yeah mayer doesnt come near in my opinion

  37. TINML

    @nat00ben06
    Agreed.

  38. Billy Pilgrim

    So much of what Jeff did is about emotion, expression and independence with a slight touch of vulnerability @ the right time. He was so much about that his voice lives on forever.

  39. Paolo Rocha

    Jeff, inmortal Jeff.
    there's a song I found in daylimotion called "Cruel" where Jeff is playing with Gary, really great song.

  40. Amy R.

    Words can't describe

  41. masigibanica

    TABS FOR THIS PLZZ

  42. parkercr

    you mean John Mayer sounds like Buckley? cause this sounds like Jeff at his finest. I think JM is great but he can't touch this

  43. TINML

    Yeah but an insult to Jeff Buckley

  44. makaveli88888

    fuckin unreal b4 his time rip jeff
