Mother Love Bone Lyrics

Mother Love Bone was an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington in 1988. The band was active from 1988 to 1990. Frontman Andrew Wood's personality and compositions helped to catapult the group to the top of the burgeoning late 1980s/early 1990s Seattle music scene. Wood died only days before the scheduled release of the band's debut album, Apple, thus ending the group's hopes of success. The album was finally released a few months later. Although Mother Love Bone is remembered by many as a very talented band in its own right, its legacy, for some, is overshadowed by Wood's death and the bands that its former members would later form, most notably Pearl Jam.

This is Shangra-la

i've been around the world, and i wrote a million songs
it's all a bore to me
i've slept in the gutter and i've lied with the dogs
it never bothered me
said the sherrif he come to, with his little boys in blue
they been looking for me, child
but with my crystal-sheen guitar i'm another ego star
so give it to me
get me to the stage...it brings me home again
this is shangri-la.
i'm tripping on it now...it brings me home again
this is shangri-la
i look bad in shorts, most of us do
don't let that bother me
i'm the football who is who, and i don't believe in smack
so don't you die on me
don't you die on me
cause love is all good people need
and music sets the sick ones free
without love no one grows, nothing gonna ever sing
because if this is shangri-la, honey
and you have gathered for the feast
my bread is your body, the wine is blood child
the wine is blood babe
the wine is...
give it to me!
get me to the stage...it brings me home again
this is shangri-la
i'm tripping on it now...it brings me home again
this is shangri-la
take me to the stage...it brings me home again
i'm tripping on it now...it brings me home again
oh, yeaaa...
