Blind Melon - "I Wonder" Lyrics  

Posted in

I'm liking this topic of best lyrics, if you will. It's made me think about music as poetry. Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of song writers I like are dead. Shannon Hoon is no exception. "I Wonder" is one of my favorites.

All alone the broadening skies

Under the every night I will lie

Scratching claw and grip the rails

Every day my living hell

Oh God you know I've tried

I know how hard I tried

and oh I tried......

Hey I'd like to daze away to a

Place like no one has known

In a state of mind I could call mine

That only I could own

Where I could hum a tune anytime

I choose, and then there is no such thing as time

Where I can feel no pain just calm and sane

What a place for one to find

Now you see I'm watching everything

I do and they're watching everything I say

Why wont they leave me be?

Why am I even here? I wonder

You leave me wondering

Won't you stop watching me

I said they're watching me, watching me, watching me

Now in my corner I got the ceiling in my eyes

Arms holding up my knees

And rocking back and forth my life

I didn't mean to feel this way

When I walked into the door, Lord

Then they ripped away my memories

And I cant remember who I was before.

And I only wanted to be 16 and free.

......and I wonder.

  • My favorite part is in bold.
