The spinning don't stop when you leave the cradle
You just slow down“

„Every thread of creation is held in position
By still other strands of things living.“

—  Don McLean
Context: Every thread of creation is held in position By still other strands of things living. In an earthly tapestry hung from the skyline Of smouldering cities so gray and so vulgar, As not to be satisfied with their own negativity But needing to touch all the living as well. "Tapestry"

„I realized that songwriters should make their statements and move on, maintaining a dignified silence.“

—  Don McLean
Context: As you can imagine, over the years I have been asked many times to discuss and explain my song "American Pie" I have never discussed the lyrics, but have admitted to the Holly reference in the opening stanzas. You will find many interpretations of my lyrics but none of them by me. … Sorry to leave you all on your own like this but long ago I realized that songwriters should make their statements and move on, maintaining a dignified silence.

„Oh, and as I watched him on the stage
My hands were clenched in fists of rage
No angel born in hell
Could break that Satan's spell“

—  Don McLean
Context: So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick Jack Flash sat on a candlestick 'Cause fire is the Devil's only friend Oh, and as I watched him on the stage My hands were clenched in fists of rage No angel born in hell Could break that Satan's spell And as the flames climbed high into the night To light the sacrificial rite I saw Satan laughing with delight The day the music died.

„Now I understand what you tried to say to me
How you suffered for your sanity
How you tried to set them free
They would not listen —
They did not know how,
Perhaps they'll listen now.“

—  Don McLean
Context: Now I understand what you tried to say to me How you suffered for your sanity How you tried to set them free They would not listen — They did not know how, Perhaps they'll listen now.

„This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.“

—  Don McLean
Context: Weathered faces lined in pain Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand. For they could not love you, But still your love was true And when no hope was left in sight, on that starry starry night You took your life as lovers often do, But I could have told you, Vincent, This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.

„I can't remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride
But something touched me deep inside
The Day the Music Died.“

—  Don McLean
Context: A long long time ago I can still remember how that music used to make me smile And I knew if I had my chance That I could make those people dance And maybe they'd be happy for a while. But February made me shiver With every paper I'd deliver Bad news on the doorstep I couldn't take one more step I can't remember if I cried When I read about his widowed bride But something touched me deep inside The Day the Music Died.

I'm asking you to say my last goodbye.
The love we knew ain't worth another try.“

—  Don McLean

I've got a dream I want the world to share, And castle walls just lead me to despair.Hills of forest green where the mountains touch the sky, A dream come true, I'll live there till I die. I'm asking you to say my last goodbye. The love we knew ain't worth another try. "Castles in the Air"

The day you took my hand.“

„And the three men I admire most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died.“

—  Don McLean
Context: I met a girl who sang the blues And I asked her for some happy news But she just smiled and turned away I went down to the sacred store Where I'd heard the music years before But the man there said the music woudn't play And in the streets the children screamed The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed But not a word was spoken The church bells all were broken And the three men I admire most The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost They caught the last train for the coast The day the music died.
