    for my creative writing class. right now i think i'm gonna go with yellow ledbetter by pearl jam. supposedly, it was nearly all improvisational, and the music that goes along with it makes it one of my top 5 favorite songs. the first stanza...

    On a porch a letter sat
    Then you said ’i wanna leave it again’
    Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand
    And on the sand I wanna leave it again... yeah
    On a weekend I wanna wish it all away yeah...
    And they called and I said that I want what I said
    And then I call out again
    And the reason oughta leave her calm I know
    I said ’i don’t know whether
    I’m the boxer or the bag’
    Ah yeah ehh....
    Can you see them
    Out on the porch
    But they don’t wave
    I see them round the front way yeah
    And I know I don’t know…I don’t what to stay…

    we then have to present, but we cant play the entire song so i figured this would do. anyone have any opinions on "powerful" lyrics? :hs:

    darkness at the break of noon
    shadows even the silver spoon
    the handmade blade the child's balloon
    eclipses both the sun and moon
    to understand you know too soon
    there is no sense in trying

    etc. lookitup
