    Here are the lyrics: ( I hope that they are correct)
    by Jeff Buckley

    beware the bottled thoughts of angry young men
    secret compartments hide all of the skeletons
    little girl wants to make her home with him
    in the middle of the shore she wonders

    "don't know what you asked for"
    "don't know what you asked for"

    all young lovers know why
    nightmares blind their mind? s eye
    your rube is young and handsome
    so new to your bedroom floor
    you know damn well were you? ll go

    I've loved so many times and I've drowned them all
    from their coral graves they rise up when darkness falls
    with their bones they'll scratch the window
    I hear them call

    "don't know what you asked for"
    "don't know what you asked for"

    stay with me under these waves tonight
    be free for once in your life tonight

    "I've loved so many times and I've drowned them all" - what a touching lyric. I feel that way sometimes......but as if i've been drowned by the other person.

    I don't know the original version. Is it worth to download? (For sure it is a great song, but I couldn't imaging that it would be better than Katatonia's version :D ) I only have a 56k modem as my internet connection :mad:

    do you think for one second that the experienced Katatonia fan would not know this fact?

    thanks for sharing some information we already knew!!!

    Well Jeff Buckley had an extraordinary vocal extention, and then the way he sings on that song is really unique, I guess it would be difficult to sing as he did.
    By the way, am I wrong or Anthema have covered Nightmares by the Sea as well?

    Yes, I heard that song too and was somewhat confused because it didn't sound like Katatonia and not like Jeff Buckley either. Somebody said that they played that song in Istanbul so I thought it was from that gig.

    :lol: ..that avatar, grief..

    I thought I'd have to dig for this thread, but I'm glad it gave you something to talk about if only for a little while.

    I was a bit :err: at the line "Your rube is young and handsome, so new to your bedroom floor." that got me thinking. I never heard the word rube before, so... :rolleyes:

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    If the word is rube, and not another one, rube means " peasant, rough man, etc." in slang American ( at least that´s what I found in my dictionary). English is not my mother tongue, actually I thought that an American would have understood Buckley´s lyrics better than me...
