Wait In The Fire
Be the best.
No negativity,
No weakness,
No acquiescence to fear or disaster,
No errors of ignorance,
No evasion from reality.
- Jeff Buckley

Jeff Buckley- Everybody here wants you.

From the posthumous LP ‘Sketches for my sweetheart, the drunk’

Contains one of my favourite lyrics ever;
'You're such a thing of wonder in this crowd, I'm a stranger in this town. You're free with me.
And our eyes locked in downcast love, I sit here proud. Even now you’re undressed in your dreams with me’

Jeff was the greatest male vocalist ever.

Once I Was by Tim Buckley, covered by Jeff Buckley

"A long time ago, when I was a little kid, my mom sat on a bed…and she put this record on, and uh, it was like the first song I’d ever heard that had my father’s voice. I must’ve been…six. and uh, I was bored. I was bored, I’m sorry, but what could you expect from a cat who was into like, Sesame Street at the time."

Once I was a soldier,

and I fought on foreign sands for you.

Once I was a hunter,

and I brought home fresh meats for you.

Once I was a lover,

and I searched behind your eyes for you.

And soon there’ll be another,

to tell you I was just a lie.

"Last Goodbye (Live)" by Jeff Buckley

Oh you know it makes me so angry ‘cause I know that in time
I’ll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye

I was in Memphis today, so naturally I had to visit Jeff Buckley’s last home (which I found with the help of his documentary and determination) and the Wolf River where he died. So emotional. So Real.

The memories fire
The rhythms fall slow
Black beauty, I love you so. (x)

Stories of Jeff: Part 7 - Sam Way
"Either I grabbed Dave’s hand or he grabbed mine; we had a little moment. Then I looked back and I saw Jeff with this smirk on his face. I tried to go into denial and pretend that Jeff hadn’t seen anything, but I’m sure that that was the point that he knew. Then I think about little moments after that and he played with us. He really played with us.
I remember one time in Paris when Dave and I had had a blazing row. I was really upset. Jeff, bless him, because we were friends, he was just protective of me. He came to my hotel room for a shower. He’s like, “I need to have a shower” and I was like, “Wow, Jeff hasn’t showered for weeks”. And he started going through my whole vanity bag or whatever and pulling out my bust firming cream and God knows what, and really ripping me about it. “What is you women have in here?”
Anyway, that was the time he sat me down and said, “You gotta remember there are boys and there are men, Dave is a boy”. That night I was sort of wandering around and he took his hat and put it on my head and said, “This is the happy hat. This is going to make you happy. You gotta hold onto it until you feel better”. So that became a little bit of a joke.
When Dave actually proposed to me onstage at Arlene Grocery, I remember, after getting dragged up on stage and Dave did this big proposal in front of everyone, Dave said, “Okay, Jeff. Am I a man now?” and Jeff said, “Yup! You’re a man now”.
