Pearl Jam – “Light Years” (written by Stone Gossard, Mike McCready & Eddie Vedder)

I’ve used hammers made out of wood
I have played games with pieces and rules
I’ve deciphered tricks at the bar
But now you’re gone I haven’t figured out why

I’ve come up with riddles and jokes about war
I figured out numbers and what they’re for
I’ve understood feelings and I’ve understood words
But how could you be taken away?

And wherever you’ve gone and wherever we might go
It don’t seem fair, today just disappeared
Your light’s reflected now, reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars

With heavy breath, awakened regrets
Back pages and days alone that could have been spent
Together, but we were miles apart
Every inch between us becomes light years now

No time to be void or save up on life
Oh, you got to spend it all

And wherever you’ve gone and wherever we might go
It don’t seem fair, you seemed to like it here
Your light’s reflected now, reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars

And wherever you’ve gone and wherever we might go
It don’t seem fair, today just disappeared
Your light’s reflected now, reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars

About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.
