Tim Buckley - Happy Time Lyrics




Ah, it's a happy time inside my mind
When a melody does find a rhyme
Says to me I'm comin' home to stay
Oh, Lord, home to stay
I'm comin' home to stay
Home to stay

Ah, lord, it's just the same old story
Something about love for glory
A nickel and a dime a dozen
Fame
Ah, it's such a shame
Ah, the way they use your name
Ah, you know it's such a shame
When it's only mine to sing a song
Hoping that you'd cross along my way
Before I have to move along
Ah, now move along
Ah, but I'll be back again
Ooh back again

Ah, it's a happy time inside my mind
When a melody does find a rhyme
Says to me I'm comin' home to stay
Oh, Lord, home to stay
I'm comin' home to stay
Home to stay

Sleep late now mama
Let the mornin' sun warm your bed
While I'm away
While I'm away

  3. Wishbone Jordy

    Tim Buckley helps you to feel better about yourself like never before that you believed you could by being open minded I think i can have a great day

  4. Chris A

    His music reflects his sadness of missing his son, maturity comes with age, understanding comes with intelligence

    Too bad he didn't find happy times in seeing his son, Jeff. The poor kid.

    Ah, it's a happy time inside my mind
    When a melody does find a rhyme
    Says to me I'm comin' home to stay
    Oh, Lord, home to stay
    I'm comin' home to stay
    Home to stay 

    Ah, lord, it's just the same old story
    Something about love for glory
    A nickel and a dime a dozen
    Fame
    Ah, it's such a shame
    Ah, the way they use your name
    Ah, you know it's such a shame
    When it's only mine to sing a song
    Hoping that you'd cross along my way
    Before I have to move along
    Ah, now move along
    Ah, but I'll be back again
    Ooh back again 

    Ah, it's a happy time inside my mind
    When a melody does find a rhyme
    Says to me I'm comin' home to stay
    Oh, Lord, home to stay
    I'm comin' home to stay
    Home to stay 

    Sleep late now mama
    Let the mornin' sun warm your bed
    While I'm away
    While I'm away

    Drew Watson

    such a poet. such timeless beauty in every word. bless Tim and Jeff

  19. Chris Ho

    Blue Afternoon is the first album I heard by Buckley. It's turned out to be the one I love most by him; though my three biggest favorite Buckley songs are not from it - Buzzin' Fly, Sweet Surrender and Once I Was.

  20. Burt472

    Extraordinary. Blue Afternoon is a magnificent album.

  21. Man O'Neal

    There's a movie called "Greetings from Tim Buckley". I haven't seen it and I'm not sure exactly what it's about. I think it might be more centered around Jeff than Tim. But anyway...check it out...you know...if you want to.

    Michael Vronksy

    I actually like that film.... a piece about both of the Buckleys and their music and how it overlapped etc.

  22. Trent Kozelek

    did it reminded to you "weird fishes"?

    Steve M.

    First time I've heard this song and I was just thinking that.

  23. Jan Keizer

    my favourite singer

  24. crividelic

    He was too talented even for the sixties!!! Their albums are MASTERPIECES...ETERNAL TIM!!

  25. andrew kilik

    someone should mak a movie of tim buckley, just like they did for "the doors. when your strange"...i would love that!!

  26. lavish lamouse

    one of the mildest songs of all time.
    why he died? and his poor son? so soon so soon
    dam drugs and booze

  27. Burt472

    So scaringly intense...........

  28. Raymantico

    a true favorite---sing it to myself occasionally--archetypal

  29. Burt472

    It's sad to see this particular song doesn't get any comments......Strange as it's so freakingly awesome.......C'mon People...Post away

  30. Burt472

    Beautiful Album and Unique singer/songwriter. He gave me a lot of emotions in the past and keep doing so still now.........Thank you Tim... You left us way too soon...........
