At this moment, you should be with us, feeling like we do, like you'd love to, but never will again. I miss you my dear Xiola. "Three Days" Jane's Addiction.

I know I'm going to get bashed for this one but

"Come up to meet you
tell you I'm sorry
you don't know how lovely you are"-Coldplay The Scientist

"Teenage angst has paid off well
now I'm bored and old"-Nirvana Serve The Servants

"You've got to pay your dues
if you want to play the blues
because you know it don't come easy"- Ringo Starr It Don't Come Easy

"When I get to the bottom
I go back to the top of the slide
where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
then I get to the bottom and I see you again"- The Beatles Helter Skelter

"I've got a cupboard with cans of food
Filtered water and picture of you
and I'm not coming out until this is all over"We Will Become Silouhettes The Postal Service

The prize for the Best Opening Lines (and verse) ... EVER surely must go to:

'God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"/
Abe said "Man, you must be putting me on"/
God said "No"/
Abe said "What?"/
God said "You can do what you want Abe but the next time you see me coming you better run"/
Abe said "Where do you want this killing done?"/
God said "Out on Highway 61"'

Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited

More people should turn Shel Silverstein words into song. <3 Johnny Cash and "A Boy Named Sue"

Didn't Shel actually record some of his own stuff to music?

"Somethin' filled up
my heart with nothin',
someone told me not to cry."
Wake up, the Arcade Fire

"I want to run, I want to hide..."

"Take my hand
You know I'll be there
If you can
I'll cross the sky for your love"

"Tell me what you see
Was it a dream? Was I in it?"
On your Own, The Verve
