This isn't about whole songs... it's just about lines here and there that stick in your head, or that make you laugh, or that have some sort of memory attatched to it


This Kiss-Faith Hill

Cinderella said to Snow White
"How does love get so off course
All I wanted was a white knight
With a good heart, soft touch, fast horse

i always have a chuckle at the fast horse line.. shes saying, a nice guy, romantic... oh, but he needs a fast car!

hehehe

========================

You're wrong not to trust one that knows you so well. I never betrayed you.. that was... Gabrielle

ooo I totally like this IDEA I hope I dont have to limit myself to one ..

well lets start with this one...

I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless
When I'm breathless I'll run till I drop, hey
The thoughts of a fool's kind of careless
I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block

hehe
Led Zepplin 'Fool in the Rain'

from A Case of You by joni mitchell

just before our love got lost you said
'i am as constant as the Northern Star'
and i said: 'constantly in the darkness,
where's that at?
if you want me i'll me in the bar...'

oh i could drink a case of you, darling
and i would still be on my feet...


hell, the whole damn song is quoteable...

i remember when you told me,
you said, 'love is touching souls,'
well surely you touched mine
'cause part of you flows out of me
through the lines from time to time


WHAT WOULD XENA DO?

are you sitting on the soap?

No, Gabrielle. You understand hate, but you don't give in to it. You don't know how much I love...that.

From Dusty Springfield, it's stuck in our minds right now:

The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes he was, he was, mmm, yes he was

"You can feel my lips undress your eyes"

Franz Ferdinand Darts of Pleasure

I keep thinking I'm mishearing that one, but let's assume I'm right, lol.

Damned if I could tell you exactly what it means, but I sure like the sound of it.

David Bowie did a song called "Young Americans" where he brilliantly, succinctly and aptly described unplanned teenage pregnancy.

"It took him minutes. It took her nowhere."

Good stuff. Smile

Guerrilla Radio - Rage Against the Machine:

"It has to start somewhere,
It has to start sometime
What better place than here?
What better time than now?

All hell can't stop us now"


Take Another Little Piece of My Heart - Janis Joplin

"Each time I tell myself I think I've had enough
Well I'm gonna show you baby, that a woman can be tough
So come on, come on, come on...
"

That entire song actually. Great song.

I offer no apologies for the things that I believe and say
And I like it that way


I was going to change
But I changed my mind

HOUNDS OF WINTER

Mercury falling
I rise from my bed
Collect my thoughts together
I have to hold my head
It seems that she's gone
And somehow I am pinned by
The Hounds of Winter
Howling in the wind

I walk through the day
My coat around my ears
I look for my companion
I have to dry my tears
It seems that she's gone
Leaving me too soon
I'm as dark as December
I'm as cold as the Man in the Moon

I still see her face
As beautiful as day
It's easy to remember
Remember my love that way
All I hear is that lonesome sound
The Hounds of Winter
They follow me down

I can't make up the fire
The way that she could
I spend all my days
In the search for dry wood
Board all the windows and close the front door
I can't believe she won't be here anymore

I still see her face
As beautiful as day
It's easy to remember
Remember my love that way
All I hear is that lonesome sound
The Hounds of Winter
They follow me down

A season for Joy
A season for sorrow
Where she's gone
I will surely, surely follow
She brightened my day
She warmed the coldest night
The Hounds of Winter
They got me in their sights

I still see her face
As beautiful as day
It's easy to remember
Remember my love that way
All I hear is that lonesome sound
The Hounds of Winter
They harry me down

Sting/1996/ from the album 'Mercury Falling'

I came upon a monster who was sleeping by a tree...
I looked & saw the monster was me...

David Bowie


most of Right place,Wrong time .. by Dr John


Gollums song.. 2 Towers



Where once was light now darkness falls
wher once was love .. love is no more
Dont say good-by
Dont say I didnt try

These tears we cry..Are falling rain
for all the lies you told us
the hurt the blame
And we will weep to be so alone
We are lost we can never go home....



So in the end I'll be what I will be ..
no loyal friend was ever there for me
Now we say good by
We say you didnt try

These tears you cry have come too late
take back the lies the hurt the blame
And you will weep when you face the end alone

You are lost you can never go home....
You are lost you can never go home....

Thats good for 5am starters.. Razz

in a moment we lost our minds here
and lay our spirit down
today we lived a thousand years
all we have is now

run to the water
and find me there
burnt to the core but not broken
we'll cut through the madnes...

from: Run to the Water, Live

also Live:
Looks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend" she said
And you can hear it in my whispered cries for love
I need your blissful touch to carry me away again
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just...

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory, but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

from Runaway

I like this, from the Concrete Blonde song Long Time Ago:

When you turned out the light
And walked out the door
I said to myself
'What did I come here for?'

Did you have a good time
Drinking whiskey and ryhme
And did you wanna be
Bonnie and Clyde?

What goes on in your mind?
What goes on in your head?
Who did you think I would be
Ha! well you got me instead

You think there's some connection
That I'm your female reflection
But no

I can be loyal
And I can be true
But that's for somebody else
And it will never be you

You think we're predetermined
But babe you're learning
Way too slow

Seems such a long time ago

He can see things
You'll never know how to see
He's three times the man
You'll never know how to be

I'll do anything he wants
And I'll go anywhere
He wants me to go

And if that isn't love
Then I guess I'll just never know

But it seems a long time ago

One that has stuck in my head since 1982:

I remember a feeling coming over me
The soldier turned and moved away

as well as the line
and you were waiting there
Swimming through apologies (sorr-eeee)


(there were only three songs I liked by Berlin and "The Metro" was one of them)

and before that one from 1978:

Time is running out
Lock up all your memories get out of here
You know that we can run
Today can last another million years
Today could be the end of me
It's 11:59 and I want to stay alive


(I'm still a large Blondie fan)

I don't know if this is the kind of thing you're looking for:

Drunk For You by Magic Dirt

Oh here I go again
Into oblivion
What's that you said just then
You know I can't just be your friend

Oh here we go again
Back to the start again
What's that you said just then
You know I can't just be your friend
You know it's not for you to mend
You know it's not for me to pretend

Every Saturday I sway when I drink your face away
Every Saturday I sway when I drink your face away

Oh here I go again
I thought of you just then
I got a burning
Underneath my skin

Every Saturday I sway when I drink your face away
Every Saturday I sway when I drink your face away

Don't you want it
Don't you get it
Don't you remember

I'm getting drunk for you 'cos I don't know what else to do
I'm walking into walls just to be where you are too
I'm getting drunk for you 'cos I don't know what else to do
I'm walking into walls 'cos I'm feeling like a fool

Every Saturday I sway when I drink your face away
Every Saturday I sway when I drink your face away

mmm...no, not really. that's kinda about escaping "the pain." i'm talking betrayal. lies, subterfuge, misrepresentation...

Tom Jones' Delilah comes to mind. but not necessarily the betrayal of a lover. maybe i'll just have to write the song i'm looking for...

Feeling guilty, worried, waking from tormented sleep
This old love has me bound but the new love cuts deep
If I choose now, I'll lose out, one of you has to fall
And I need you, and you

This one might not work either, as it IS the betrayal of a lover:

Why'd Ya Do It? by Marianne Faithfull

WARNING!! EXPLICIT LYRICS!!

When I stole a twig from our little nest
And gave it to a bird with nothing in her beak,
I had my balls and my brains put into a vice
And twisted around for a whole f***ing week.

Why'd ya do it, she said, why'd you let that trash
Get a hold of your c*ck, get stoned on my hash ?
Why'd ya do it she said, why'd you let her suck your c*ck ?
Oh, do me a favour, don't put me in the dock.
Why'd ya do it, she said, they're mine all your tools,
You just tied me to the mast of the ship of fools.
Why'd ya do it, she said, when you know it makes me sore,
'Cause she had cobwebs up her fanny and I believe in giving to the
poor.

Why'd ya do it, she said, why'd you spit on my snatch ?
Are we out of love now, is this just a bad patch ?
Why'd ya do it, she said, why'd you do what you did ?
You drove my ego to a really bad skid.
Why'd you do it, she said, ain't nothing to laugh,
You just tore all our kisses right in half!
Why'd ya do it, she said, why'd ya do what you did,
Betray my little oyster for such a low bid.

Why'd ya do it, she said, why'd you do what you did ?
You drove my ego to a really bad skid.
Why'd ya do it, she screamed, after all we've said
Every time I see your dick I see her c*** in my bed.

The whole room was swirling,
Her lips were still curling.
Why'd ya do it, she said, why'd you do what you did
Why'd ya do it, she said, why'd you do what you did
Why'd ya do it, she said, why'd ya do it, she said,
Why'd you do what you did ?

Oh, big grey mother, I love you forever
With your barbed wire pussy and your good and bad weather.
Why'd ya do it, she said, why'd you do what you did ...
Ah, I feel better now.
