Once I Was
Tim Buckley Lyrics


Once I was a soldier
And I fought on foreign sands for you
Once I was a hunter
And I brought home fresh meat 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

And sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Will you ever remember me

And though you have forgotten
All of our rubbish dreams
I find myself searching
Through the ashes of our ruins
For the days when we smiled
And the hours that ran wild
With the magic of our eyes
And the silence of our words

And sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Will you ever remember me

Ever remember me

Once I was a soldier
And I fought on foreign sands for you
Once I was a hunter
And I brought home fresh meat 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
And sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Will you ever remember me
And though you have forgotten
All of our rubbish dreams
I find myself searching
Through the ashes of our ruins
For the days when we smiled
And the hours that ran wild
With the magic of our eyes
And the silence of our words
And sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Will you ever remember me

RIP Tim Buckley 🖤

@I am Jaguar Paw! This is MY forest!
What idiocy.

Blind obedience is not patriotism.

If it was, then 'America - love it or leave it' could just as readily apply to the roughly 30 percent of our country(wo)men who still refuse to honor the results of the lawful 2020 election.

Get the Hell out Trumpies - why don't you?

Right?

Or are you too young to remember those morons that came up with that mocking 'Sore-Loserman' snipe in the wake of Florida 2000?

Not so funny now that the shoe's on the other foot, huh?

Disgusting hypocrisy.



Monet Pedrazzini

Once I was a soldier
And I fought on foreign sands for you
Once I was a hunter
And I brought home fresh meat 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

And sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Will you ever remember me

And though you have forgotten
All of our rubbish dreams
I find myself searching
Through the ashes of our ruins
For the days when we smiled
And the hours that ran wild
With the magic of our eyes
And the silence of our words

And sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Will you ever remember me

The world was not given enough of Tim or Jeff Buckley

Couldn’t agree more.

The combination of voice, instruments, emotion, and lyricism is just incredible. What a talent.

Suzanne England

The hours spent with this music in my late teens haunts me to this day, beautifully.
