You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher.

  • You know that it would be untrue
    You know that I would be a liar
    If I was to say to you
    Girl, we couldn't get much higher.

    • "Light My Fire" (1967); because Jim Morrison sang this as The Doors first hit, and he was the group's primary songwriter, this is often mistakenly thought by many to have been written by Morrison.
  • I didn't plan on rock 'n' roll. I wanted to learn jazz; I got to know some people doing rock 'n' roll with jazz, and I thought I could make money playing music. In rock 'n' roll you can realize anything that you can in jazz or anything. There's no limitation other than the beat. You have more freedom than you do in anything except jazz — which is dying — as far as making any money is concerned.
  • In The Doors we have both musicians and poets, and both know of each other's art, so we can effect a synthesis. In the case of Tim Buckley or Dylan you have one man's ideas. Most groups today aren't groups. In a true group all the members create the arrangements among themselves.
