Force of Nature Lyrics from the Pearl Jam Album: Backspacer

Force of Nature is an expression sometimes given to people to describe their personality e.g. they are stormy, mood and come in an cause trouble...

Force of Nature is also the name of an Oasis song.


Lyrics: Force of Nature / Pearl Jam

Understand she’s a force of nature
Contraband hiding deep inside her soul
Exorcising her will to lose control
She lets go


A common man, he don’t stand a chance, no
Wonderland pulling Alice in the hole
No way to save someone who won't take the rope
And just let’s go


One man stands the edge of the ocean
A beacon on dry land
Eyes upon the horizon
In the dark before the dawn


Hurricane has the trade winds blowing
A gale force shaking windows in the storm
Shipwreck on the rock that he calls home
With one light on


Somewhere there’s a siren singing
A song only he hears
All the strength that you might think
Would disappear,.. Resolving


One man stands alone, Awaiting
For her to come home
Eyes upon the horizon
In dark before the darkness meets the dawn.


Makes me ache,... Makes me shake,...
Is it so wrong to think that love can keep us safe?


Last I saw, he was out there waiting
A silhouette in the black light, full moon glow
In the sand there he stands upon the shore
Forevermore


Somewhere there’s a siren singing
A song only he hears
All the strength that you might think
Would disappear, resolving


One man stands along, Awaiting
For her to come home
Eyes are closed,.. You cannot know
But his heart don’t seem to roam.

  28. This song is absolutely gorgeous. Gives me chills.
    I can't believe that anyone could NOT love this album. It's awesome and offers so much to so many people if they would take the time time to "hear" the lyrics and the messages they contain. This album is amazing! BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF WORK FROM THE BEST BAND EVER!! Thank you PJ for another work of art!! :)

  29. Have to Agree! Gives me the chills too.
    This album is truly unbelievable for all it offers lyrically and musically. U guys truly give life a new meaning with each album! Bless you and rock on!

  30. Agreed on chills. Probably one of the best Pearl Jam songs ever.

    ReplyDelete
  31. im still thinking its "it is so wrong to think that love can keep us safe", instead "is it!", like if it was it in a question way...:)

    ReplyDelete
  32. This song is one of the best ever written. It's hauntingly beautiful. I close my eyes and it carries me away to another time and place. This album is truly amazing. I also agree with "chills." I get chills throughout most of this album. Ed's voice seems to be the best and strongest it's ever been and the music will blow you away. I recommend headphones on this one. It's the ultimate way to experience Backspacer, I promise you! :)

  33. Wonderful album. Love it. Force of nature is my favorite, though. I agree with the previous comment: it carries me to another time and place. I feel like running and not stopping. Great song.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This song is just terrible and I hate it. Ha, ha... I can't go much further with that joke. Force of Nature is simply incredible. It's amazing how certain songwriters can capture so much emotion and speak to a vast number of people with their work. Eddie Vedder is not only a genius with his songwriting, but also with his presentation. The only PJ song I like more is Given to Fly!

  35. Force of Nature is among the best Pearl Jam ever have done. I traveled in Nepal, China, Bangladesh, Laos and Thailand in 2001 with only two albums, No Code and Yield, in my luggage, which spun constantly. Pearl Jam is not music for me, it's where I practice my religion.

  36. Beautiful....inspirational....haunting.....this song is a masterpiece! It's gorgeous from beginning to end. Anyone not listening to the breathtaking lyrics and music to this song is missing out on so much. It's a song of love, hope and perserverance. Of never giving up but only resolving to be stronger in whatever your quest may be. Turn it on and take it all in.

  41. to me they have never reached again the level of first 4 album ,now they are just boring

    ReplyDelete
  42. Linda cancion, llena de alegría y esperanza!
    El album suena distinto a los demás, y por un lado eso es bueno, aunque no lo veo con tanto contenido como por ejemplo el album "pearl jam" (el mejor album de la banda a mi parecer).
    De cualquier manera, la banda sigue teniendo esa química que tanto contagia y que siempre brindo a sus seguidores.
    Aguante Pearl Jam!
    Saludos para todos!

  43. Great song! que maciza la rola!
    One man stands along, awaiting
    4 her to come home... Fuck with whos/se doesn't understand u and your reasons
    Somewhere there’s a siren singing
    a song only he hears... only u can find your siren by yourself... sometimes u can see her sometimes a lifetime isn't enough.

  46. This character, of austere stark loneliness in a torment of love with full unwaivering heart strength, that veder has created here matches any our of greatest anti heroes. He is an anti hereo who we can all aspire to be like .

  47. it is an honor to say that the person that knows me the best in the world told me this is his song for me... amazing song, cant stop when I hear it! pure clear energy fron pj!!!

  48. Everytime I listen to this album, I experience something new: a new favority song, a chill on a different note, a beautiful phrase i hadn't really understood before & another emotion. This album is a song, a true piece of art, PJ truly know how to capture life at its most "intense".

  49. " . . . Membuat saya sakit Membuat saya goyang
    APAKAH BEGITU SALAH untuk berpikir bahwa cinta bisa membuat kita aman

    Terakhir saya melihat
    ia ada di luar sana menunggu
    Sebuah siluet dalam cahaya hitam
    bulan penuh cahaya
    DI PASIR SANA IA BERDIRI DI ATAS PANTAI
    Untuk selama-lamanya

    Di suatu tempat ada BERNYANYI SIRENE
    SEBUAH LAGU hanya ia mendengar
    Semua kekuatan yang Anda mungkin berpikir
    Akan hilang
    menyelesaikan

    Satu orang berdiri di sepanjang
    Menunggu
    Baginya untuk pulang
    Mata tertutup
    Anda tidak dapat mengetahui
    Tapi HATINYA tampaknya TIDAK BERKELIARAN "

  50. ... Somewhere there’s a siren singing
    A song only he hears
    All the strength that you might think
    Would disappear, resolving

    One man stands along, Awaiting

    Eyes are closed,.. You cannot know
    But his heart don’t seem to roam.

    ... Di suatu tempat ada bernyanyi sirene
    Sebuah lagu hanya ia mendengar
    Semua kekuatan yang Anda mungkin berpikir
    Akan hilang, menyelesaikan

    Satu orang berdiri bersama, Menunggu
    Baginya untuk pulang
    Mata ditutup, .. Anda tidak dapat mengetahui
    Tapi hatinya tampaknya tidak berkeliaran.
