Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam


Pearl Jam – Yellow Ledbetter

This is one of my favorite tunes by Pearl Jam. When I listen to the song for the first time I did not understand the words but loved the song. Something about it was so moving and intense. I learned then that music transcends words and rhythms and becomes something else.  An emotional journey, this song touches me in a way no other does, and the words just don’t matter.  None the less, here are the lyrics and video by Pearl Jam.

Yellowledbetter
Unsealed
On a porch a letter sat
Then you said i wanna leave it again
Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand
And on the sand I wanna leave it again… yeah
On a weekend I wanna wish it all away yeah…
And they called and I said that I want what I said
And then I call out again
And the reason oughta leave her calm I know
I said i dont know whether
Im the boxer or the bag
Ah yeah ehh….
Can you see them
Out on the porch
But they dont wave
I see them round the front way yeah
And I know I dont want to stay…

Make me cry

Ooooh I see
I dont know theres something else
I wanna drum it all away
Oh I said I dont, I dont know whether Im a boxer or the bag
Ah yeah ehh….
Can you see them
Out on the porch
But they dont wave
I see them round the front way yeah
And I know I dont want to stay
I dont wanna stay (2x)
Dont
Dont wanna
Oh… yeah… oooh..
