And I wonder when I sing along with you if everything could ever feel this real forever.
If anything could ever be this good again.
The only thing I'll ever ask of you,
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when.
~ Everlong
I'm looking to the sky to save me,
Looking for a sign of life,
Looking for something to help me burn out bright.
I'm looking for a complication.
Looking cause I'm tired of lying.
Make my way back home when I learn to fly.
~ Learn to Fly
There goes my hero.
Watch him as he goes.
There goes my hero.
He's ordinary.
~ My Hero

Foo Fighters are an American rock band, formed in Seattle in 1994. It was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as a one-man project following the death of Kurt Cobain and the resulting dissolution of his previous band. The group got its name from the UFOs and various aerial phenomena that were reported by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II, which were known collectively as foo fighters.

Song lyrics[edit]

Foo Fighters (1994)[edit]

All songs written and composed by Dave Grohl.

  • This is a call to all my
    Past resignations.
    This is a call to all,
    This is a call to all my
    Past resignations.
    It's been too long.
  • I've been around all the pawns
    You've gagged and bound.
    They'll come back and knock you down and I'll be free.

    I've taken all and I've endured.
    One day it all will fade,
    I'm sure.

  • When I talked about it,
    Carried on,
    Reasons only knew.
    But it's you I fell into.

The Colour and the Shape (1997)[edit]

All songs written and composed by Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear, except where noted.

  • Don't want to be your monkey wrench,
    One more indecent accident.
    I'd rather leave than suffer this.
    I'll never be your monkey wrench.
    All this time to make amends,
    What do you do when all your enemies are friends?
    Now and then I'll try to bend,
    Under pressure wind up snapping in the end.
  • Too alarming now, to talk about.
    Take your pictures down, and shake it out.
    Truth or consequence, say it aloud,
    Use that evidence, race it around.

    There goes my hero.
    Watch him as he goes.
    There goes my hero.
    He's ordinary.

  • Come down and waste away with me, down with me.
    Slow how, you wanted it to be, I'm over my head, out of her head she sang,
    And I wonder when I sing along with you if everything could ever feel this real forever.
    If anything could ever be this good again.
    The only thing I'll ever ask of you,
    You've got to promise not to stop when I say when.
  • Tonight I'm tangled in my blanket of clouds,
    Dreaming aloud.
    Things just won't do without you, matter of fact,
    I'm on your back, I'm on your back, I'm on your back.

    If you walk out on me, I'm walking after you.
    If you walk out on me, I'm walking after you.

There Is Nothing Left to Lose (1999)[edit]

All songs written and composed by Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel and Taylor Hawkins.

  • Oh mirror mirror, you're coming in clear.
    I'm finally somewhere in between.
    I'm impressed, what a beautiful chest,
    I never meant to make a big scene.
    Will you resign to the latest design?
    You look so messy when you dress up in dreams.
  • You make me dizzy running circles in my head.
    One of these days I'll chase you down.
    Well look who's going crazy now.
    We're face to face my friend.
  • I'm looking to the sky to save me,
    Looking for a sign of life,
    Looking for something to help me burn out bright.
    I'm looking for a complication.
    Looking cause I'm tired of lying.
    Make my way back home when I learn to fly.
  • Lately I'm getting better,
    Wish I could stay sick with you.
    But there's too many egos left to bruise.
    Call it sin, you can call it whatever,
    Eating deep inside of you.
  • You believe there's something else
    To relieve your emptiness.
    And you dream about yourself.
    And you bleed and breathe the air.
    And it's on and on and on and on.
  • I'm in the sky tonight.
    There I can keep by your side.
    Watching the wide world riot and hiding out,
    I'll be coming home next year.

    Into the sun we climb,
    Climbing our wings will burn white.
    Everyone strapped in tight,
    We'll ride it out.
    I'll be coming home next year.

One by One (2002)[edit]

All songs written and composed by Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel and Chris Shiflett.

  • All my life I've been searching for something.
    Something never comes, never leads to nothing.
    Nothing satisfies, but I'm getting close,
    Closer to the prize at the end of the rope.
    All night long I dream of the day,
    When it comes around and it's taken away.
    Leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most,
    Feel it come to life when I see your ghost.
  • Winding through this maze you hold me in,
    Searching all these days to find the end.
    You're everything, you're everything I'm not.
    But I'm anything, I'm anyone you want.
  • It's times like these you learn to live again.
    It's times like these you give and give again.
    It's times like these you learn to love again.
    It's times like these time and time again.

In Your Honor (2005)[edit]

All songs written and composed by Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel and Chris Shiflett.

  • Pleased to meet you take my hand,
    There is no way back from here.
    Pleased to meet you say your prayers,
    There is no way back from here.
    But I don't care,
    No way back from here.
  • Are you gone and onto someone new?
    I needed somewhere to hang my head
    Without your noose.
    You gave me something that I didn't have,
    But had no use.
    I was too weak to give in,
    Too strong to lose.
    My heart is under arrest again.
    But I break loose.
    My head is giving me life or death.
    But I can't choose.
    I swear I'll never give in;
    I refuse.
  • I was down, I fell, I fell so fast,
    Dropping like the grains in an hourglass.
    Never say forever cause nothing lasts
    Dancing with the bones of my buried past.

    Never mind there's nothing I can do.
    Bet your life there's something killing you.

  • A little bit of resolve is what I need now.
    Pin me down, show me how.

Echoes (2007)[edit]

All songs written and composed by Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel and Chris Shiflett.

  • Spinning and spinning deeper,
    The wheel is spinning me.
    It's never ending,
    Never ending.
    Same old story.
  • A heart of gold but it lost its pride
    Beautiful veins and bloodshot eyes
    I've seen your face in another light
    Why'd you have to go and let it die?
  • Maybe the season
    The colors change in the valley skies.
    Dear God I've sealed my fate:
    Running through hell,
    Heaven can wait.

    Long road to ruin
    There in your eyes
    Under the cold streetlights
    No tomorrow.
    No dead end in sight.

  • It was meant to be
    But all along it never meant a thing.
    Never stopped to ask you why
    You didn't pass me by
    Did you see me in your life
    Flash before your eyes?
    Was it just that I wasn't hard enough,
    Hard enough for you.

Wasting Light (2011)[edit]

All songs written and composed by Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear.

  • Why won't you let me disobey?
    It's getting kinda late but I don't wanna wait no more.
    Well may I have this dance of day?
    Locked in your regrets,
    Passed your test of faith.

    Another time another place,
    Another line upon your face,
    Another in your way.

  • This indecision got me climbing up the walls
    I've been cheating gravity and waiting on the falls
    How did this come over me, I thought I was above it all?
    Our hopes gone up in smoke, swallow your crown.
  • Ain't that the way it always starts?
    A simple round of conversation
    Became a shameful equation.
    I flipped you station to station.
  • One of these days the ground will drop out from beneath your feet
    One of these days your heart will stop and play it's final beat
    One of these days the clocks will stop and time won't mean a thing
    One of these days their bombs will drop and silence everything.
  • A million miles away
    Your signal in the distance.
    To whom it may concern,
    I think I lost my way.
    Getting good at starting over
    Every time that I return.
