Kings of Leon Lyrics


A single book of matches gonna burn what's standing in the way.
Roaring down the mountain, they're calling on the fire brigade.
Carry out the pictures and tell the kids that I'm okay.
If'n I'm forgotten, you'll remember me for the day.

I won't ever be your cornerstone.
I

All the black inside me is slowly seeping from the bone.
Everything I cherish is slowly dying or it's gone.
Little shaking babies and drunkards seem to all agree,
Once the show gets started it's bound to be a sight to see.

I won't ever be your cornerstone.
I don't want to be here holding on.
I won't ever be your cornerstone.
I

Watch her run, can you feel it?
Watch her run, can you feel it?
Watch her run, can you feel it?
Watch her run, can you feel it?

I won't ever be your cornerstone.
I don't want to be here holding on.
I won't ever be your cornerstone.
I

This song has so many aspects.
Here is one of them.
It is a dedication to the people who take care of someone, in no regard for themselves.
At the very beginning we see a younger man entering the bar and helping the other man stand straight.
The young man walks over to the guy being a douche to that lady, and a fight breaks out.
Without thinking about himself, he enters in order to stop the fight, engaging in a bigger one. Where we see the other dude punching him. For what? Trying to be nice.
As he is falling, we see a younger lady, helping an older man drink something.
The man might be drinking poison, but she is helping him. Regardless of herself, she chose to be there with that old man who is vividly crippled.
We see a dancer, who is in no regard of her shame, she is there to entertain everyone in her own way, even though there is a guy being thrown into the mirror behind her.
By the time we have someone jumping in to save the dude being beat up, or someone is about to finish him, the line appears. "Want your love. Can you feel it?"
And in that instance, the body of that young man is being lifted up, as if he is being raised into heaven.
And into heaven, he goes, being followed by others who share the same line of characteristics in this video.
By the end, everyone is going to the light eventually, its just that people who dont care for themselves, but for others, will have the blessing recieved earlier. Because they didnt put themselves at spot number 1.

The line:"Want your love. Can you feel it?" Can be told to anyone.

And if you feel like this song touches you, which it most likely does, you too dont want to be a cornerstone.
You arent. You just care for people, where you know you will not get anything in return.

Single book of matches
Gonna burn what's standing in the way
Roaring down the mountain
Now they are calling on the fire brigade
Bury all the pictures
And tell the kids that I'm okay
If I'm forgotten
They'll remember me for today.

I, won't ever be your corner stone
I...

All the black inside me
Is slowly seeping from the bone
Everything I cherish
Is slowly dying or it's gone
Little shaken babies
And drunkards seem to all agree
Once the show gets started
It's bound to be a sight to see

I won't ever be your cornerstone
I don't want to be here holding on
I won't ever be your cornerstone
I...

Watch her roll
Can you feel it

Watch her roll
Can you feel it

Watch her roll
Can you feel it

Watch her roll
Can you feel it

I won't ever be your cornerstone
I don't want to be here holding on
I won't ever be your cornerstone
I...

Dude, this song if so peaceful. it helped me stay strong when my pops died a week before my graduation. before walking the stage i asked my teachers if could put my head phones on and listen to this song. It gave me so much strength just to walk a few steps to grab my diploma and not cry at all but instead feel proud. This is all back in 2012 and i still love this song, a memory of my dad comes every time this song plays. thanks to kings of leon for this master piece
