"I remember that time you told me,
You said love is touching souls, surely you touched mine,
Cos part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time."

Joni Mitchell "A Case of You"

"Skin can feel my lips they tingle
Tense anticipation,
This one is an easy one, feel the word and melt upon it,
Words of love and words so leisured,
Words are poisoned darts of pleasure"


Franz Ferdinand "Darts of Pleasure" too sensual for words

And all of "Can't Stand Me Now" by the Libertines...a break up song indeed to rend your heart in two.

This old Judy Collins song means a lot to me and I'm so affected by it that I seldom listen to it any more, since it colors the rest of my day.

...When the winter finds you, you fly to where it's summer
Rooms that face the ocean, moonlight on your bed
Mermaids swift as dolphins paint the air with diamonds
You are like a seagull as you sail

Why do you fly bright feathered sometimes in my dreams?
The shadows of your wings fall over my face
I can feel no air, I can find no peace
Brides in black ribbons, witches in white
Fly in through the windows, fly out through the night...

Why do I think I'm dying sometimes in my dreams?
I see myself a child running thru the trees
Searching for myself, looking for my life
Looking everywhere crawling on my knees
I cannot see the leaves, I cannot see the light

Then I see you walking just beyond the forest
Walking very quickly, walking by yourself
Your shoes are silver, your coat is made of velvet
Your eyes are shining, your voice is sweet and clear
"Come on" you say "come with me, I'm going to the castle"

All the bells are ringing, the weddings have begun
But I can only stand here-I cannot move to follow
I'm burning in the shadows -and freezing in the sun

There are people with you living in your houses
People from your childhood who remember how you were
You were always flying, nightengale of sorrow
Singing bird with rainbows on your wings...

This one is more weird than anything else. But let's go with it anyway.

"Wring out my guilt and hang it on the line, it's been raining all week so it won't get a chance to dry. Looking in the pantry for a box of sorries, but I'm all run out. I've been locking all my doors and closing all my blinds, but it seems to find it's way back inside. If I could sweep it out the door, then it would be the end, but the wind keeps blowing it in again" - Bic Runga - "Sorry"

I Have several. Here are two:

Yesterday, when I was young,
So many happy songs were waiting to be sung,
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me,
And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see
Yesterday When I Was Young - Roy Clark


Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I would swear that there's someone somewhere
Watching me
Holding Out For A Hero - Bonnie Tyler

Wow, I haven't heard that one in years. Always makes me weepy. Great song, though.

When the wind blows down this hard,
Many a bond is broken.
See the water lie on the ground
From where the heavens opened.

Lord, how will you get through this night
With your dreams departed?
And who alone will comfort you?
Only the broken hearted.

So you've gone beyond your means,
Every wound is open,
Your best laid plans are out of reach,
And all your fears unspoken.

Chorus

Sweet revenge is spoken then;
In the twilight it is gone.
To living lies with no escape,
Lord, I would rather be alone.

I press my fingers to the wood
To tell you of my dreaming,
To sing you songs from olden times,
To keep the love light gleaming.

'Cause there's a place where we can go,
Where we will not be parted.
And who alone will enter there?
Only the broken hearted.

Only the broken, broken hearted.
Only the broken, broken hearted.
Only the broken, broken hearted.
Only the broken, broken hearted.

My other favourite Eric clapton song.

Here's one which I haven't been able tog et out of my head since I bought the album the other day. It sounds basic, but the song is a masterpiece.

Isobel - Björk

In a forest pitch dark
Glowed the tiniest spark
It burst into a flame
Like me
Like me

My name, Isobel
Married to myself
My love, Isobel
Living by herself

In a heart full of dust
Lives a creature called lust
It surprises and scares
Like me
Like me

My name, Isobel
Married to myself
My love, Isobel
Living by herself

When she does it she means to
Moth delivers her message
Unexplained on your collar
Crawling in silence
A simple excuse

Na na na nana
Na na na nana

It a towel of steel
Mature forges a deal
To raise wonderful hell
Like me
Like me

My name, Isobel
Married to myself
My love, Isobel
Living by herself

When she does it she means to
Moth delivers her message
Unexplained on your collar
Crawling in silence
A simple excuse

Na na na nana
Na na na nana
Na na na nana
Na na na nana

One of my recent favourites is from the Tim McGraw song 'Live Like You Were Dyin'. The line is;

'I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Fu Manchu'.

The reason that I like it is that 2.7 seconds isn't enough to qualify but it shows that win, lose or draw, he had the guts to give it a try.

Another line that I love is from a Blues Brothers album and they were covering someone elses version. The line;

'The way she did what she did,
when she did what she did to me,
made me think of you,
Ya baby, made me think of you.'

It seems so honest, sincere and heartfelt.

Take this soul,
stranded in some skin and bones;
take this soul
and make it sing

- U2, Yahweh, which feels to me like a prayer

I had a smile
stretch from ear to ear
to see you walking down the road

- Sarah McLachlan, I Love You, which makes me think every time of my very own Very Nice Young Man

'Life's short and hard like a bodybuilding elf' from Bloodhound Gang's 'Lift Your Head Up High And Blow Your Brains Out'. It may be in remarkably poor taste, but I like it nevertheless.

"I woke up with a start,
Rubbed my eyes from dreaming,
Turned around, looked at you, and the tears they start streaming.
I touch you, you touch me.
Our love has no meaning.
Trying hard to understand, but my mind is screaming and, (I don't love you anymore), don't love you anymore baby"
"Don't Love You Anymore" The Reels
and "Forever Now" originally by Chisel, but The Reels did a beautiful cover of this song. (Not so loud as Barnsie)

"Taking her seat at the bar
She don't talk to anyone
Plane leaving soon for afar
Where she don't know anyone
She thinks of her precious time
There's no-one she leaves behind
Who could change her mind

Is this the way it's gonna be forever
Is this the way it's gonna be forever
Is this the way it's gonna be
Forever now

Take a whole life's lonliness
Wrap it up in some tenderness
Send it off to some emptiness
With all my love
Cos it's only you and me
There'll be nothing we need to see
Only one thing can set you free
Is all my love

Making his way down the stairs
He can't help but looking back
Thinks of the things that they shared
There'll be no more turning back
He thinks of the day they met
The words that she said of love
He just can't forget

Just the way they wanna be forever
Just the way they wanna be forever
Tell me it will always be
Forever now

Take a whole life's lonliness
Wrap it up in some tenderness
Send it off to some emptiness
With all my love
It's only you and me
There'll be nothing we need to see
Only one thing can set you free
Is all my love
It's only you and me
There'll be nothing we need to see
Only one thing can set you free
Is all our love, oh yeah

Remember this one?

A SIMPLE MAN (Lobo)

...These are the things that bother me,
Not a lot of things across some sea,
I don't even have a master plan,
I guess that I am just a simple man...

One of my favourite songs EVER!! It's amazing.

"Light up dark fantastic passion
I know that you will surrender"

There are absolutely a MILLION song lyrics I love, I really couldn't pick one I'll say a few but I prob wont think of all the good ones!

"Tears from the sky in pools of pain, well baby tonight I'm gunna go and dance in the rain"

Queens of the Stone Age "Broken Box"

"Crediso is pouring out of my brain I swear I heard the floorboards they were creaking your name"

Kaiser Chiefs "Saturday Night"

"I heart of stone a smoking gun I can give you life I can take it away"

Bloc Party "Banquet"

Don't know why I like these lyrics I just do but there are many many more!!
