I've tried... Without much success. But I'd really like to know exactly what he's saying too!

And if I remember correctly, the liner notes for KTSA/BB85 state that Brian reworked "Oh Lord" with Steve Levine in 1984, so as to include it in BB85 - but it didn't make the cut.

I've been trying to figure out the lyrics to this for a long time now too. Maybe if we all post what we can make out, we can come up with most of the words. Actually, it would be great if somebody could transcribe the complete Cocaine Sessions tape.

Both...!  Grin

The same, a bit louder and with most of the hiss taken off. The difference is quite impressive.

Most of it is just too soft to even be able to infer, and the way he sings it obscures individual words, it's likely it was heavily ad-libbed... but just going on the sounds, this is what I came up with:

--
Oh lord, all my life with you,
there's so much to see
I'm not affraid.

Oh lord, let me hear their song
Let me be okay...forever more
Oh lord, when I believe, it's all that I know
All that I know.

Make me stand from everything
Let me see what there is to see
Oh lord, let me see all there is to see
Oh lord, when children see they're ever-loving.

Oh lord, please let me see all there is to see
Make me stand from everything
Let me see what there is to see.

I was born... [garbled] ...right now

Alright, okay, okay, okay, okay.

Oh lord, let me be alone
Let me live my life forever more.

Ohh, ohh, ahh, forever more

Oh lord, let me be alone
Let me be with my friends, ohh
Lord, I'm too scared.

Ohh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, ohh yeah.

This has got to be the most emotional song never released! Has Brian ever talked about it recently?
