hey guys, looking for some suggestions...
so I'm getting a tattoo on saturday with my best friend. they are matching... of a Jose Posada
skeleton and traditional style roses, with a banner with some grateful dead lyrics. Originally we had placed "maybe it was the roses" in the banner... but I had recently changed mine to "let there be songs to fill the air." Now my friend has decided she wanted to keep "maybe it was the roses," so now I was just thinking about whether or not I would want something else. I've been letting the dead sing to me nonstop for a few days... but I was just wondering if you all wanted to share your favorite lyric/quote. obviously I will be the one to choose what I want in the end, but since there's just sooo much music, I just want to be sure I didn't miss anything to consider! I'm running out of time D:
thanks guys, peace!
edit.... I thought maybe it would be helpful if I put some of the things that have been floating in my head...
-Maybe it Was the Roses
-Let there be songs to fill the air.
-Every silver linings got a touch of grey
-If you get confused listen to the music play.
-All he's lost he shall regain
-Speeding Arrow, Sharp and Narrow
-Like a steam locomotive, rolling down the track
-If I had the world to give;
-But I will give what love I have to give;
-If I had a Star to Give
-this is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago
(I can't narrow this one down, agh!)
-Just a box of rain, wind and water
Believe it if you need it, if you don't just pass it on
Sun and shower, Wind and rain
in and out the window, like a moth before a flame
-Going where the wind goes, Blooming like a red rose
-So the kids they dance And shake their bones
-Rain gonna come but the rain gonna go
-wade in the water and never get wet
