Right now it is by the Strokes:

I didn't take no shortcuts
I spent the money that I saved up
Ah, momma runnin' out of luck
Like my sister don't give a fuck

or the Radiohead lyric in my signature.

Don't get sentimental
It always ends up drivel

Excellent (oh god, I AM Mr. Burns, lol). I haven't been able to stop listening to the Strokes in weeks!

Favorite lyric? I don't know...too many great songs out there and my brain is fried at the moment. Beer is calling!

They say we're in a state of emergency
So how come no one is panicking?
Where were you when they wrote the news?
And how are you? Are you feeling blue?
-Chantal Kreviazuk, Blue, 1999

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see.
-The Beatles, Strawberry Fields Forever, 1966.

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go 'round and 'round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go.
-John Lennon, Watching the Wheels, 1980.

What would it be? For me, it's from the song 'Name' by the Goo Goo Dolls.

"Don't it make you sad to know that life is more than who we are..."

I love Jeff Buckley's Last Goodbye - anyone that has ever broken up a relationship can totally relate to this song!!

This our last goodbye
I hate to feel the love between us die
But it's over
Just hear this and then I'll go
you gave me more to live for, more than you'll ever know.

This is our last embrace, must I dream and always see your face
Why can't we overcome this wall
Baby, maybe it's just because I didn't know you at all
Kiss me, please Kiss me
But kiss me out of desire, babe, and not consolation
You know, it makes me so angry 'cause I know that in time
I'll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye

Did you say, "no can't happen to me", and did you rush to the phone to call?
Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind saying, "maybe...you didn't know him at all"
Well, the bells out in the church tower chime
Burning clues into this heart of mine Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and the memory Of her sighs that, "it's over... it's over..."

Really need to hear him singing it though to get the full effect



------------------
Behind closed doors and under stars
It doesn't matter where you are
Collecting jewels that catch your eye
Don't let a soulmate pass you by

Meaning in Ohio? I'm from the Cleveland area, but I live in Bowling Green--I'm a senior at BGSU...

I have two favourite non-U2 lyrics. One is my siggy and the other one is from Lou Reed's Magic and Loss:

There's a bit of magic in everything
And then some loss to even things out

Marty

we live and learn from our mistakes

"Arbed amser ar ben fy hun
Cynal cof ac atgofion blin
Pwyth am bwyth
Chwant am chwant

A pob tro dwi'n codi'r ffon
Mae'n dweud 'Dial'
Dial anweddus
Nid grym arswydus
Aur, suth a mur

Tonfedd sur a chalon o ddur
Adeiladu ffiniau eglur
Newlid tonfedd
Nofio'r don

Dal yr abwyd nerth dy ben
Cwyd l'r wyneb
Dial anweddus
Nid grym arswydus
Aur, suth a mur"

Translation:

"Spending time on my own
Hold a memory and bitter recollections
Switch for switch, lust for lust

And each time I answer the phone
It says "revenge"
Indecent revenge, not a terrible power
Gold, frankincense and myrrh

A sour wavelength and a heart of steel
Building clear boundaries
Changing wavelength, swimming the wave

Hold the bait with all your might
Rise to the surface
Indecent revenge, not a terrible power
Gold, frankincense and myrrh"

"the world is in my chaos dream
but I am not invited
cos you don't know what people say
cos you don't know what people want to say
you're an abstract unknown boy
you and me talk freely at night
and this is my chaos
you've got a right to stay inside
I supply
you are the last one to know
cos I don't know"

"Itís a better way to feel
Donít be real, be postmodern"

I have too many....

"You can dream, but you can never go back the way you came" ~Jackson Browne

"I just found out there's no such thing as the real world, just a lie you've got to rise above" ~John Mayer

just about everything by Tori Amos and Sheryl Crow and Fiona Apple.....

"these tears i've cried
i've cried 1000 oceans
and if it seems i'm. floating.
in the darkness
well, i can't believe that i would kep.
keep you from flying
and i would cry 1000 more if that's
what it takes to sail you home
sail you home sail you home"
~Tori

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Beatles

There are places I remember all my life,
Though some have changed
Some forever, not for better,
Some have gone and some remain.

All these places had there moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall.
Some are dead and some are living.
In my life I've loved them all.

But of all these friends and lovers,
There is no one compares with you.
And these mem'ries lost there meaning
When I think of love as something new.

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before,
I know I'll often stop and think about them,
In my life I'll love you more.

Beatles
