Brian Jonestown Massacre, The - Just For Today Lyrics




Lover
Is sad
Sad
But true

Lover
Well you shine
Like the sun
Why you seem so sad
Cannot say
What she's done

Lie if your high
Cause it's bringing me low
Sad outside
Yeah
Like never you'd know

Lover
Is sad
Too
Damn bad

So it's gone
Gone
Like our love
To the sun
And I wonder now
Yes, I wonder
Just the drug
You were on
Cause you seem high
Higher
Are you ever
Going mad
Can I ask you why
Why
I can feel
So bad hey

And you smile
And say
Lies

Lover
She say
She's been dying
And she's gone
'Cause it made her bad
When she saw you
On the trip
That you're on

And it made me drown
In my tears, as they fall
And it made me sad
I recovered
She recovered
She was gone

    I have no idea why I love this song so much. Its magic in the minds of the artists who write it, they somehow write something that speaks so clear to the soul.

  7. John Haslam

  31. Kry Knuz

    someone needs to mix this with deftones - change.

  32. Jeb Kerman

    If you actually thought about the lyrics, the lover was never on drugs. You (the singer) was tripping thinking she was on some mad drug! The Lover(girl) was going mad from him being on drugs all the time and accusing her of being high. WOW!

  33. JR Baccaglio

    Sound like ride like the wind

  34. Paul Thibaud

    I respect you Anton for never selling out. You truly love music.

  38. DuSlothster

    This sounds almost identical to tuesday afternoon by the moody blues. Don't know if it was sampled or not?

  39. phra1l phil Murray

    Never heard of them, but will listen to more. I like this atmospheric stuff. It's reminiscent of sixties psychedelia. I may be learning still in my dotage.

  42. Victor Ramírez

    Lover
    Is sad
    Sad
    But true

    Lover
    Well you shine
    Like the sun
    Why you seem so sad
    Cannot say
    What she's done

    Lie if your high
    Cause it's bringing me low
    Sad outside
    Yeah
    Like never you'd know

    Lover
    Is sad
    Too
    Damn bad

    So it's gone
    Gone
    Like our love
    To the sun
    And I wonder now
    Yes, I wonder
    Just the drug
    You were on
    Cause you seem high
    Higher
    Are you ever
    Going mad
    Can I ask you why
    Why
    I can feel
    So bad hey

    And you smile
    And say
    Lies

    Lover
    She say

    And it made me drown
    In my tears, as they fall
    And it made me sad
    I recovered
    She recovered

    R.Groen1908 Groenewerk

    Best song in the world!

    joe risch

    Damn that hits hard af, first time I’ve ever looked at the lyrics...:(

    Antonio Ribeiro

    Anton Newcombe is my brother in soul i love his songs the way i like to be.

    Doctor VonBrown

    Absolutely amazing start to a great album. Beautiful track!

  43. John Jones

    Let me grab my tambourine

  44. Hydro Gen

    God it touches me.

  45. Cactus Hands

    This song is so fucking perfect

  46. TunnelSnake

    This band's particular brand of neo-psychedelia has been reformulated by many newer bands and none have delivered as exceptionally as they have. Anton Newcombe has an impeccable talent for music. He can practically range from 60's psychedelic and pop to 80's influenced shoegaze to neo-psychedelia. He has a diverse taste in music and that's what makes this band wonderful.

  47. evgeny 11092016

    О*уенно!

  48. dethkon

    I love this song. Lyrics are so bitter sounding.

  49. Hydro Gen

    I say, this man really do know the blues.

  51. Robert Piparo

    I personally feel this was one of BJM's best albums!

  52. Lee Woodhead

    Kelly14UK

    +Belka h.j Brian Jones RIP 1942 - 1969.

    Belka h.j

    +Kelly14UK That's Anton Newcombe...

  63. Johnny Trash

    I was too busy studying music appreciation in the 90s at University to listen to all indie music. This band receives my approbation. I admire their combination of what appears to be improvisation, largo guitar playing and 1960s drug induced psychedelia. Too cool!

  64. Sitting Bull

    Tame Impala and all that just missing some real messages and feeling in their music.

    pchug

    red drib you sound like the biggest buzz kill of all time man.

    xavier carrabba

    tame impala and BJM are my 2 favourite bands, and kevin parker switched up his sound on currents as an ode to kylie minogue, psychedelic rock isnt cool, 90s rnb is cool. im not ignorant its straight facts motherfucker its lsd or its caps at a 90s rave festival in japanese designer- dont ever step to me

    monkem

    fuck you all

    Parasites

    @monkem agree

    De Ka

    @monkem let's change it to, fuck all who hate on tame impala. Lol. Sorry but Innerspeaker an Lonerism are two masterpieces that a single guy wrote. The guy who started all this, was the biggest idiot of all to compare BJM with Tame Impala, which is far beyond stupidity.

    Love both, Trip on both Fuck all of you

  65. Jay M

    i didnt think i would have a favourite jonestown song. and yet, here it is

  66. Luciano Nascimento

    viciante.

  67. pedjathegrke

    Incredible song.The feeling you experience while listening to it is unmatched....
    Brilliant!

    Hilton Jacobs

    It takes me to different places and different times, with different qualities of light. Few songs have ever done this for me. Love this band.

  68. roger falsanom

    Rock and fucking roll

  69. Andrew Leeson

  71. Handsome Timmy

    es mi bull no cato

  72. Jennifer M. Darkbloom

    Pure preternatural magic. 

  73. ManyDeathsLater

    This song is just pure emotion. I physically cannot stop listening to it, it blocks out the negative thoughts and replaces them with sweet music.

  74. eric newton

    Has anybody seen my arms? can't find them anywhere!

  75. ninlandon

    beautiful, just beautiful, this energy is off the charts id like to jump off a building to this song playing in my head

    Jennifer M. Darkbloom

    It makes me soar soar soar...the energy is insane and remarkable. 

  76. Jamie M

    BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE, the most perfect band ever on the planet, guna see them in july, 02 glasgow cant wait

    Keith Miller

    scottymanOhigh

    @Floyd The Barber how was it?

    Lommo

  77. Winged Skyrunner

    This makes me just sad :b the topic of the song is ...

  78. MrTorture187

    It's Called JESUS

  79. softsunglow

    Bjm brings me up when I'm down.

  80. anthony bell

    God. So good. It's songs like this that remind me why I continue to exist...

  81. Ward Capeci

    This is the music I will hear when I go to heaven...
    they play harps in hell.

  82. gabby s

    There is never a bad song from BJM, and there never will be.

  83. Stevan Djukic

    Its my generation.. good timing...

  84. mat zun

    is there a place where I can download the special features from dig?

  85. Evan Griffith

    My favorite BJM song. It's perfect.

  86. jopaprez

    no way to take acid before bed, you cant sleep unless you have a shit ton of sleeping pills.

  87. Miguel Jeronimo

    You, sir, rock. Amen

  88. Josh Zakovics

    If you mean in the scene where the crowd start attacking the camera crew and then Courtney runs off stage then they are playing a version of feel it

  89. Stephan de Hoop

    Fucking A!

  90. AuntyEsther

    Yeah, but you might spend the rest of your days in a state of catatonic ecstasy. Way to go!

  91. Danger Ranger Dan

    When I listen to this song I feel like I'm falling through the rain clouds of an overcast day with raindrops all around me, and they're falling right alongside me. As I'm just kind of tumbling down I'm reaching out to whoever is the object of my affection at the time, and they sit high in the clouds. And I just fall and fall until finally, in the reprise at the end, the music propels me right back up, shooting through the rain and clouds and out to I don't even know where...just away.

  92. Danger Ranger Dan

    That's funny, I've never tried drugs (except alcohol) and I've loved this band from the minute I heard their song "Straight Up and Down" in the opening credits of Boardwalk Empire.

    Doctor VonBrown

    So 7 years has passed, have you tried mushrooms yet?

  93. ryan hancock

    what a horrible thing to lay on somebody with a head full of acid
