I like anything by the Smashing Pumpkins. Billy Corgan is a brilliant lyricist.

*See my signature.

I adore Robert Smith of The Cure and Martin Gore of Depeche Mode for lyrics.

"If for kindness you substitute blindness,
please open your eyes."

~Condemnation, Depeche Mode.

I can't choose.. I really like pretty much anything Shirley Manson writes. I'm indecisive.

"You must not look down on someone just 'cos they are 14 years old. When I was that age I listened to the music of John Lennon and it changed my way of seeing things, so I'm just glad that 14 year olds are coming to see U2 rather than group X." - Bono, 1988

don't let anyone see us
say what they've seen and expose us
I've seen how they are and I hate it
they could never
talk about
where we've been

What a beautiful face I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
What a beautiful dream that could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me

What a curious life we have found here tonight
There is music that sounds from the street
There are lights in the clouds
Anna's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees

Now how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet
But now we keep where we don't know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago
Now he don't even know his name

What a beautiful face I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
And when we meet on a cloud I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing with everyone I see
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
when you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on.
Don't let yourself go, everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.

Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it's time to sing along.
When your day is night alone,
if you feel like letting go,
when you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on.

Everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts. Don't throw your hand. Oh, no. Don't throw your hand.
If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone.

Stand up to the blow
that fate has struck up on you
make the most of all
you still have coming to you
lay down on the ground
and let the tears flow from you
crying to the earth and trees
and heaven, finally, on your knees

let me live again
let life come find me wanting
spring must strike again
against the chill of winter
let me feel once more
the arms of love surround me
telling me the dangers passed
I need not fear the icy blast again

Can't help falling in love with you

Wise men say
only fools rush in
but I can't help
falling in love with you


Like a river flows
surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand
take my whole life too
for I can't help
falling in love with you


Like a river flows
surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand
take my whole life too
for I can't help
falling in love with you

Lloyd: What are the chances of a guy like you and a girl like me...ending up together?
Mary Swanson: Not good.
Lloyd: Not good like one in a hundred?
Mary Swanson: I'd say more like one in a million.
Lloyd: So you're telling me there's a chance?

"Have a Cigar" - Pink Floyd

Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar. You're gonna go far,
fly high, you're never gonna die, you're gonna make it if you try;
they're gonna love you.
Well I've always had a deep respect, and I mean that most sincerely.
The band is just fantastic, that is really what I think.
Oh by the way, which one's Pink?
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy,
we call it Riding the Gravy Train.

We're just knocked out, we heard about the sell out.
You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people.
We're so happy we can hardly count.
Everybody else is just green, have you seen the chart?
It's a helluva start, it could be made into a monster
if we all pull together as a team.
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy,
we call it Riding the Gravy Train.

I love that one. How about this one.

Garbage-Special
Do you have an opinion?
A mind of your own?
I thought you were special
I thought you should know
But I've run out of patience
I couldn't care less


Depeche Mode-In Your Room
I'm hanging on your words
living on your breath
feeling with your skin
will I always be here


I agree with you, Noodle, Martin Gore and Robert Smith are excellent lyricists.


------------------
Stay with the demons you drowned
Stay with the spirit I found
Stay and the night would be enough
