Eddie Vedder – Better Man

https://youtu.be/8a5rWox3C1I

Waitin’, watchin’ the clock, it’s four o’clock, it’s got to stop
Tell him, take no more, she practices her speech
As he opens the door, she rolls over…
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

She lies and says she’s in love with him, can’t find a better man…
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can’t find a better man…
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Ohh…

Talkin’ to herself, there’s no one else who needs to know…
She tells herself, oh…
Memories back when she was bold and strong
And waiting for the world to come along…
Swears she knew it, now she swears he’s gone

She lies and says she’s in love with him, can’t find a better man…
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can’t find a better man…
She lies and says she still loves him, can’t find a better man…
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can’t find a better man…
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Yeah…

She loved him, yeah… she don’t want to leave this way
She feeds him, yeah… that’s why she’ll be back again

Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better… man…

Eddie Vedder - Better Man

Pearl Jam – Just a girl

Thieves in the window
Trouble down the hall
The resin white ceiling
Blood, dripping, flows
Out on the front line
Preachers sweep the earth
Out on their backsides
With nothing in common, with no problem

She’s just a girl…
Just…just a girl, yeah…
Just one time around
She has little chance to make good
Distance of her lie
Decided in the woods

Burning fires
She’s led to police
This maid in progress
Betrayin’ your mother’s need for a shelter

Oh, just a girl
Just…just a girl
Just one time around
She had little chance to make good
Treats them now, she’s young
But it can be taken away
Just one time around…can be taken away
We all make mistakes

Hush my baby…don’t you cry…
You’re my little alibi
Oh baby, please…I need some sleep
Hmm, now be taking
You with me

Just a girl (5x)

Eddie Vedder – Long Nights

Eddie Vedder – Long Nights

Have no fear
For when I’m alone
I’ll be better off than I was before

I’ve got this life
I’ll be around to grow
Who I was before
I cannot recall

Long nights allow me to feel
I’m falling
I am falling
The lights go out
Let me feel
I’m falling
I am falling safely to the ground
Ah…

I’ll take this soul that’s inside me now
Like a brand new friend
I’ll forever know

I’ve got this light
And the will to show
I will always be better than before

Long nights allow me to feel
I’m falling
I am falling
The lights go out
Let me feel
I’m falling
I am falling safely to the ground
Ah..

Eddie Vedder – Hard Sun

Muziek van de film ‘Into the Wild’

when I walk beside her
i am the better man
when I look to leave her
I always stagger back again
once I built an ivory tower
so I could worship from above
and when I climbed down to be set free
she took me in again

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

when she comes to greet me
she is mercy at my feet
when I see her pin her charm
she just throws it back again
once I sought an early grave
to find a better land
she just smiled and laughed at me
and took her blues back again

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

when I go to cross that river
she is comfort by my side
when I try to understand
she just opens up her eyes

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

once I stood to lose her
when I saw what I had done
bound down and flew away the hours
of her garden and her sun
so I tried to warn her
i’ll turn to see her weep
40 days and 40 nights
and it’s still coming down on me

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world
