Jeff Buckley

Jeffrey Scott "Jeff" Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), raised as Scotty Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. He was the son of Tim Buckley, also a musician. After a decade as a session guitarist in Los Angeles, Buckley amassed a following in the early 1990s by playing cover songs at venues in Manhattan's East Village, such as Sin-é, gradually focusing more on his own material. After rebuffing much interest from record labels and his father's manager Herb Cohen, he signed with Columbia, recruited a band, and recorded what would be his only studio album, Grace. more »

They say everything can be replaced
But every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man that put me here

I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say that every man must fall
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Some place so high above this wall

Say, I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any way now
I shall be released

Oh yeah
But you know, whoa
Ooh yeah

They're standing next to me in this lonely crowd
Is a man who swears he's not to blame
All day long I hear his voice shouting so loud
Crying out he has been framed

I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any way now
I shall be released

Everybody say with me

I see my light come shining
What about west or east
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released
