i know we could be so happy baby (if we wanted to be)

there's no easy answer, none to blame or forgive
two cripples dancing to the end we live
i'm not with you, but of you
not with you, but of you

you are soft and young to me
i am the ghost who come and goes
and i hope i'll catch you in the throes
of one last look at the wonder
one last look at the wonder

o, god, i love you
over the past we once knew
some other love becomes you
whatever else we come to
i know we could be so happy, baby
if we wanted to be

come soft and young to me
i am the ghost who comes and goes
i'm hoping that i'll catch you in the throes
of one last look at joy that we've become

but there's no easy answer, none to blame or forgive
we were two cripples dancing to the bitter end we live
i'm not with you, but of you
i'm not with you, but of you

o, god, i loved you
and all of the past we once knew
some other love becomes you
whatever else it comes to
i know we could be so happy, baby
if we wanted to be

we had a birthplace in common
we had separate beds and lives

i'll just sit here and glow
break out the oldest pictures
hang your ruined letters out to dry
we had a birthplace in common
and separate beds and lives
i know that we could be so happy, baby
if we wanted to be
i know that we could be so happy, baby
if we wanted to be

handwritten lyrics

off his posthumous album sketches for my sweetheart the drunk released in 1998
some handwritten lyrics from the jeff buckley: his own voice book

not with you but of you

laying down
eyes closed


ok ladies and gentlemen...i would like to introduce the new "fanpages" tab found up above on the navigation bar towards left !!! a place where i can make a dedicated page to whoever i want loll first up we've got jeff's page, which kinda inspired my fanpage concept in general cuz i just found too many god damn good pics of him to not display somewhere lol
so please stay tuned for more to be added to that tab over time, i think we all know it's just a matter of time before i get to making an elliott one... hehe
but in the meantime, here's another jeff song that's been stuck in my head lately. it's one that was just recorded by jeff at home on a 4 track..haunting. and just recently too i found out about the book i mentioned above that came out a couple years ago including some of his old lyrics, notes, etc., so i added a pic i found from that of an older draft of some lyrics for "we could be so happy together". i needddd to find a copy of this book !!
and lastly, the two pics above i found cuz of a tumblr post actually lol apparently this photographer merri cyr that toured with jeff a lot at one point was selling ( i'm not sure when ) some old test prints of jeff, all of which had been approved by him with a little heart drawing :00 sooo cute and cool i totally would've bought one had i know about em when they were around, but obviously by now they're long gone. maybe one day i'll get my hands on one... in the meantime, check out her website here to browse all the pics that were for sale, some really cool shots in there. and please enjoy jeff's page : )
