    Anything will do, whether it's just a single line or a verse. I'll start with one:

    "I know I'm young, but if I had to choose her or the sun, I'd be one nocturnal son of a gun". Gym Class Heroes - Cupid's Chokehold.

    I have been reminiscing a bit tonight and listening to an old favourite band. This is from Portishead's song "Wandering Star"

    Please could you stay awhile to share my grief
    For its such a lovely day
    To have to always feel this way

    Muse ~ Neutron Star Collision

    I was searching
    You were on a mission
    Then our hearts combined like
    A neutron star collision

    I have nothing left to lose
    You took your time to choose
    Then we told each other
    With no trace of fear that...

    Our love would be forever
    And if we die
    We die together
    And lie, I said never
    'Cause our love would be forever

    The world is broken
    Halos fail to glisten
    You try to make a difference
    But no one wants to listen

    Hail, The preachers, fake and proud
    Their doctrines will be cloud
    Then they'll dissipate
    Like snowflakes in an ocean

    Love is forever
    And we'll die, we'll die together
    And lie, I say never
    'Cause our love could be forever

    Now I've got nothing left to lose
    You take your time to choose
    I can tell you now without a trace of fear

    That my love will be forever
    And we'll die we'll die together
    Lie, I will never
    'Cause our love will be forever

    These are quite dark, but compelling lyrics from the band Sugar on the song "Slick". I once thought it was Bob Mould recounting a car accident he was involved in, but I couldn't find anything indicating it was a first person account.

    All I remember is the sound
    Of squealing tires
    The road disappeared only to be
    Replaced by the sound of twisted steel
    The collision was swift
    And the next thing I knew
    Was that I might be dead
    All my life passed before my eyes
    When I opened my eyes
    I was looking at you

    They sent you here to take care of me
    I don't know your name
    I can't hear your voice
    I can't speak
    And all I do is wait for you to feed me

    This is a song done my the Main Ingredient. The lead singer was Cuba Gooding Sr. and we lost him a few months ago.

    I don't mind when you say that you're going away
    Just don't wanna be lonely
    And I don't care if you share
    Only moments a day
    I just don't wanna be lonely

    I'd rather be loved and needed
    Depended on to give a love I can't give
    When you're gone, when you're gone
    I just don't want to be lonely
    I'd just rather be loved
    I'd just rather be loved

    I don't mind when the time
    sets the sun to the moon
    I just don't wanna be lonely
    Let the stairs find you there
    at the end of the room
    I just don't wanna be lonely

    I'd rather be loved and needed
    Depended on to give a love I can't give
    When you're gone, when you're gone
    I just don't want to be lonely
    I'd just rather be loved
    I'd just rather be loved

    And I'd give up forever to touch you
    'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
    You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
    And I don't want to go home right now

    And all I can taste is this moment
    And all I can breathe is your life
    And sooner or later it's over
    I just don't wanna miss you tonight

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's meant to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am

    And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
    Or the moment of truth in your lies
    When everything feels like the movies
    Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's meant to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's meant to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's meant to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am

    I just want you to know who I am
    I just want you to know who I am
    I just want you to know who I am

    I LOVE THIS SONG!!
    We saw them in concert a few years ago. It was one of the best concerts I've ever been too! They sounded just like they do on the radio. Lead singer was fine to look at too. ;)

    Great Selection lady :)

    Details In The Fabric (feat. James Morrison)
    by Jason Mraz

    Calm down
    Deep breaths
    And get yourself dressed instead
    Of running around
    And pulling on your threads saying
    Breaking yourself up

    If it's a broken part, replace it
    If it's a broken arm then brace it
    If it's a broken heart then face it

    And hold your own
    Know your name
    And go your own way

    Hold your own
    Know your name
    And go your own way
    And everything will be fine

    Hang on
    Help is on the way
    Stay strong
    I'm doing everything

    Hold your own
    Know your name
    And go your own way

    Hold your own
    Know your name
    And go your own way

    And everything, everything will be fine
    Everything

    Are the details in the fabric
    Are the things that make you panic
    Are your thoughts results of static cling?

    Are the things that make you blow
    Hell, no reason, go on and scream
    If you're shocked it's just the fault
    Of faulty manufacturing

    Everything will be fine
    Everything in no time at all
    Everything

    Hold your own
    And know your name
    Go your own way

    Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
    Are the things that make you panic
    Are your thoughts results of static cling? (Go your own way)

    Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
    Are the things that make you panic (Go your own way)
    Is it Mother Nature's sewing machine?

    Are the things that make you blow (Hold your own, know your name)
    Hell no reason go on and scream
    If you're shocked it's just the fault (Go your own way)
    Of faulty manufacturing

    Everything will be fine
    Everything in no time at all
    Hearts will hold

    Oh I just called up to tell you that I'm ragged but right.
    A thief and a gambler and I'm drunk every night.
    I've got a great big handsome man to play around with my feet.
    A great big 'lectric fan to keep me cool while I sleep.
    I'm just a rambling woman, a gambling woman
    And gosh am I tight.
    But I just called up to tell you that I'm ragged but right.

    Here's the 2nd verse:

    A porterhouse steak three times for my board
    That's more than any self-respecting girl could afford
    I'll take a fifteen minute intermission in your V-8
    I'd like to make it longer but I've got a late date.
    I'm a rambling woman, a gambling woman,
    And gosh am I tight.
    But I just called up to tell you that I'm ragged but right.

    I've been looking through the dictionary
    For a word that's always running through my mind
    Though I love the name of Brother, I was looking for another
    And I must confess that word I could not find.
    Can it be that all its glories are forgotten
    And it's vanished with the language of the Greek?
    If it is t'will ever linger in my memory
    As the first word that I heard my daddy speak:
    Saloon, Saloon, Saloon.
    It runs through my brain like a tune.
    I don't like cafe and I hate cabaret but just mention saloon
    and my cares fade away.
    For it brings back a fond recollection
    Of a little old low-ceilinged room
    With a bar and a rail
    And a dime and a pail
    Saloon, saloon, saloon.

    Trying to fit your hand inside of mine
    When we know it just don't belong
    There's no force on earth
    Could make me feel right, no

    Trying to push this problem up the hill
    When it's just too heavy to hold
    Think now's the time to let it slide

    So come on let it go
    Just let it be
    Why don't you be you
    And I'll be me

    Everything's that's broke
    Leave it to the breeze
    Let the ashes fall
    Forget about me

    Come on let it go
    Just let it be
    Why don't you be you
    And I'll be me

    Drunk last night.
    Drunk the night before.
    We're going to get drunk tonight like we never got drunk before.
    Singing "Glorious! Glorious! A keg of beer for the four of us!
    Singing 'Glory be to God there are no more of us
    'Cause one of us could drink it all
    'Damned quick!'

    I first heard this right after we lost E's dad, I happened to see her live, front row and I cried. Like a baby.

    "Violet Eyes" by Jewel

    It's been awhile, since you've been around
    I've been drifting like a gypsy from town to town
    I've been to France and Rome
    Seen Duomos glittered dome
    I've laid beneath Spanish summer skies
    But I've seen nothing so lovely as your Violet Eyes


    Do you recall the turquoise seas
    On the isles off the shores of Greece
    I've sworn I won't forget
    Your exact smile or where we went
    I see you in everything
    And everywhere I go
    I see your Violet Eyes


    Seasons come and seasons pass
    Time can seem so fragile
    Like a looking glass
    Oh, I know there must be something
    More constant than time
    'Cause everywhere I go
    I see your Violet Eyes

    [Verse 3]
    If I could write a postcard to you
    And know that somehow it would get through
    I'm not sure I could express
    This aching in my chest
    I guess, I'll always miss you
    And everywhere I go
    I see your Violet Eyes


    Seasons come and seasons pass
    Time seems so fragile
    Like a looking glass
    Oh, I know there must be something
    More constant than time
    'Cause everywhere I go
    I see your Violet Eyes


    It was a year ago last Christmas
    That we spent in Hawaii
    We were laughing beneath the sand
    We were playing in the sea
    It'll be year coming this Forth of July
    When I held your hand
    And for the last time
    You closed your Violet Eyes


    Seasons come, ooh ahh, seasons pass
    Time seems so fragile
    It's as fragile as a looking glass
    I know there must be something
    More constant that time
    'Cause at night, when I sleep
    I feel you all around me
    I feel your eyes upon me
    I see your Violet Eyes

    Another favorite by Jewel. These words run so deep, doesn't matter what your faith is or where you live.


    "Innocence Maintained"

    Ophelia drowned in the water
    Crushed by her own weight Hitler loved little blue eyed boys
    And it drove him to hate
    Birds always grow silent before the night descends
    'Cause nature has a funny way of breaking what does not bend
    A hero's torso built of steel and Novocain
    His heart a bitter beat inside a bloodless frame
    There was a hole inside his soul a manicure could not fill
    So he found himself a whore to love while daisies choked in the window sill

    We've made houses for hatred
    It's time we made a place
    Where people's souls may be seen and made safe
    Be careful with each other
    These fragile flames
    For innocence can't be lost
    It just needs to be maintained

    A small town in Ohio
    Two boys are filled with violence
    And darkness spreads its legs for hate and ignorance
    We are given to a god to put our faith therein
    But to be forgiven, we must first believe in sin

    We've made houses for hatred
    It's time we made a place
    Where people's souls may be seen and made safe
    Be careful with each other
    These fragile flames
    For innocence can't be lost
    It just needs to be maintained

    I want to live bravely
    And love without fear
    I want always to feel the wings of grace near
    We all will be Christed when we hear ourselves say
    We are that to which we pray

    We've made houses for hatred
    It's time we made a place
    Where people's souls maybe seen and made safe
    Be careful with each other
    These fragile flames

    We've built houses for hatred
    It's time we made a place
    Where people's souls may be seen and made safe
    Be careful with each other
    These fragile flames
    For innocence can't be lost
    It just needs to be maintained

    When you came to me with your bad dreams and your fears
    It was easy to see that you'd been crying
    Seems like everywhere you turn catastrophe it reigns
    But who really profits from the dying
    I could hold you in my arms
    I could hold you forever
    I could hold you in my arms
    I could hold you in my arms forever

    When you kissed my lips with my mouth so full of questions
    It's my worried mind that you quiet
    Place your hands on my face
    Close my eyes and say
    Love is a poor man's food
    Don't prophesize
    I could hold you in my arms
    I could hold you forever
    And I could hold you in my arms
    I could hold you forever

    So now we see how it is
    This fist begets the spear
    Weapons of war
    Symptoms of madness
    Don't let your eyes refuse to see
    Don't let your ears refuse to hear
    Or you ain't never going to shake this sense of sadness
    I could hold you in my arms
    I could hold on forever
    And I could hold you in my arms
    I could hold forever
