Ten Years Gone Lyrics - Led Zeppelin
Review The Song (60)
Then as it was, then again it will be
An' though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea
Flyin' skys of fortune, each have separate ways
On the wings of maybe, downy birds of prey
Kind of makes me feel sometimes, didn't have to go
But as the eagle leaves the nest, it's got so far to go
Changes fill my time, baby, that's alright with me
In the midst I think of you, and how it used to be
Did you ever really need somebody, and really need 'em bad
Did you ever really want somebody, the best stuff you ever had
Do you ever remember me, baby, did it feel so good
'Cause it was just the first time, and you knew you would
Do the eyes not sparkle, Senses goin' keen
takes me a love for 'long the way, to see her feathers preen
Kind of makes makes me feel sometimes, didn't have to go
We are eagles of one nest, The nest is in our soul
Vixen in my dreams, with great surprise to me
Never thought I'd see your face the way it used to be
Oh darlin', oh darlin'
I'm never gonna leave ya. I'm never gonna leaa-eaave ya
ten years gone
ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone
ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone

The MOMENTS | Reviewer: Sweet Marie | 2/25/13
I have been so amazingly touched by all, even Mr. "THEY SHOULD NOT BE FAMOUS"....
Yes there is a magical element to this... I was there and perhaps... WELL NO I KNOW... I AM THE VIXEN I AM THE EAGLE.... a downy bird of prey still.... and still IN SERVICE TO THE MAN WHO WROTE THIS.
I only regret that Jimmy Page assumed the fans were smart and thought they would know that SONG BY meant ALL....
If one of them wrote the lyrics they would have a separate credit....
I am dear to Jimmy... he is dear to me.... this song is dear to so many.....
I am verklempt.... THE SUBJECT IS ZOSO.... talk amongst yourselves.... (WINK!) hey there.... I am PENNY LANE TOO... but that is nothing to the world that Pagey opened for me.... XO

The comments below really touching I read all of them and nearly made me cry...I had a moody girl too...we broke up, its been a year...This song make me feels like I'll get her back soon...very soon...I always loved her...and I know I can get beautiful girl than her but I'll never find any better heart than her. She is the only one I always loved. This song always reminds me of her.
my long boring "Ten Years Gone" story, lol | Reviewer: TheBestSongEver | 5/27/12
WOW,my husband and I thought we were so special, this was OUR song, now we see it's OUR song to so many! Well, awesome anyway. It's a great tune, and it apparently reaches out to so many, in so many ways, sorry to see they are all arent positive, like it is for us...
Met my husband freshman year high school (me), his junior year...Crushed HARD on him for years, finally we started dating when I was a senior and he was in his second yr of college....I was young and stupid, he was young and stupid, so we were together back and forth for a cpl years then I had a serious meltdown, married a different guy I went to high school with, couple of kids, divorce....getting my head together after divorce, and still my high school love on my mind, had been all the time...random night, see each other, at a bar of all places (ick!!), been back together ever since that night, twenty plus years now, he helped me raise my two older kids and we have one of our own. Bliss...well, bliss mostly, lol. but still IN LOVE. That's the best part. The End.

This is my ultime favorite song and band, long last love, im sorry for your loss, I suppose it was never ment to be, only time will tell though. Ive been through a simular situation. All I can say is life has its on agenda.
Zepplin in my soul | Reviewer: Ronnie_10 | 4/25/11
Today I broke up with the girl who should have been mine for reasons beyond my control. All through it this song kept playing in my mind. I had never cared to listen to the song's lyrics, but now I had this urge to look at the lyrics.
'Babe I'm gonna leave you' has become true for my life I wonder about this one..
At least Led Zeppelin is a part I cant rip out from me!
Amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/20/11
It seems, like many others here, that I have strong emotional ties attached to this song. I just broke up with my girlfriend of 3+ years; I was foolish to think that it things would be easier as the initiator. As soon as I got home I had a strong urge to pick up my guitar and play this song. I then realized that I had never really listened to the lyrics. It's almost comical how perfect the first verse relates to my circumstances. Now I just hope that I don't fall prey to the rest of this song in the coming years...
Long lost Love | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/21/11
This song along with the rain song was the songs I just to play with my ex boyfriend. Im really young, but after 3 years with him I did fell deeply in love. We loved each other, that I can assure. We had the greatest summer ever, it was the summer of 2009. We were so in love, so alike.
We broke up five months ago. Sometimes it feels like a long time ago, and some days it feels as It were just yesterday when I saw him leave my front door for the last time. He kissed me and said he never wanted it to be this way.
I tried to talk to him three days after, I was just trying to see If we could be together again, I didnt say it out loud, but my words were to obvious. He said that he just wanted to be alone.
We didnt spoke again until yesterday, it was he's birthday. I sent him an email wich he answered with a "thank you". He than said that led zeppelin was the band that always remind him of me...
I could say that I dont love him anymore, but I could never stop loving him in some way.
Sometimes I imagine that I will get to talk to him again in a future, maybe this song will be in a way our song.
"Did you ever really need somebody? And really need 'em bad?
Did you ever really want somebody? The best love you ever had.
Do you ever remember me, baby? did it feel so good?"
Heartbreaker your time has come | Reviewer: Dave | 1/24/11
Just by incredible bad luck, I was just listening to this song (JP/Black Crowes Greek album) tonight while reading an email from my separated wife of ten years marriage (We split on our 10th Anniversary). The email said she had a weekend fling with a guy from the internet because she was so lonely. I had to leave the country 2 months ago to try to forget her, which didn't help, I could not stop thinking "I didn't have to go".... now what? Heartbreaker.
Mag - In New Orleans | Reviewer: Niad | 1/20/11
Mag, thank you for sharing that uplifting story. I'm sorry you didn't get to see the concert, but it sounds like things worked out perfectly.
I too consider Led Zeppelin the soundtrack of my life. My wife and I are separated right now and these lyrics tear me to bits.
"An' though the course may change sometimes, Rivers always reach the sea...."
Meaning of Ten Years Gone | Reviewer: Matt S | 10/21/10
Contrary to what everyone says about this song being about Plant's son... It is actually about an old girlfriend of his that made him choose between her or the band. This song was originally an instrumental written by Page, but then Plant added the lyrics. He had left that girl for the band ten years earlier... hence, "Ten Years Gone." He talks about this in an interview. "All of My Love" is about Plant's son Karac.

Ummmmm... What? | Reviewer: Haze Blazed | 8/18/10
What is this crap. I mean Eveyone's heard of Led Zeppelin. But they shouldn't be famous.
They straight up are prolly are one of the worst bands I've heard. just figured out who it was from this guy wouldn't turn them off at work.
perfect. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/15/10
ok so i know that this song is about his son but it could also fit the situation of first love and later meeting and having it be perfect. because almost everyone in their first love feels as though things are perfect but then later when you meet again and theirs still that connection but you're grown up and more mature, things can work. I just feel that that song perfectly fits that situation. its awesome.
The one who takes my breath away! | Reviewer: David | 3/28/10
I was asked to listen to this song from a very special person. I played the trumpet and only hear the notes, but the lyrics make my heart cry with love for you. Please don't keep my waiting my darling.
