Once I Was Lyrics - Jeff Buckley

Review The Song (3)



(Tim Buckley tribute at St. Ann's church)

A long time ago, when I was a little kid, my mom sat on the bed and put this record on and..it's like the first song I ever heard..that had my father's voice..and I must admit it...I was..six...and I was bored...I was bored, I'm sorry...(....)

Once I was a soldier,
and I fought on foreign sands for you
Once I was a hunter,
and I brought home fresh meat for you
Once I was a lover
and I searched behind your eyes for you
Soon there’ll come another
to tell you I was just a lie.

And, sometimes I wonder,
for a while:
Do you ever remember me?

Though you have forgotten
all of our rubbish dreams,
I find myself searching
sponsored links
through the ashes of our ruins
for the days when we smiled,
and the hours that ran wild
with the magic of our eyes
and the silence of our words.

And, sometimes I wonder,
for a while:
Do you ever remember me?

THE SONG SPEAKS LOUD AND CLEAR. I AM A VIET NAM VET NOW LIVING OUTSIDE THE USA. THE LYRICS SPEAK TO THE FEELINGS STRIVINGS AND EMOTIONS OF THIS ONE TIME SOLDIER MICHAEL CHAI



Once he was | Reviewer: Susannah | 7/18/2007

I don't think another song has ever touched me the way Tim Buckley's "Once I was" did. Although I don't think I have actually heard it in maybe 20 years, it still plays in my head easily when I think about it. I remember exactly where I was when I heard he died...so young, so brilliant.



A classic | Reviewer: Jack Ellis | 12/27/2006

Tim Buckley's "Once I Was" hit me so hard the first time I heard it, over thirty-five or so years ago. He sang the song from the bottom of his soul/sole about love, rejection, and memories. It still plays in my mind after so many years: "Will you ever...remember me."
