Just a snip of the lyrics to a favorite song of mine. Normally not into any sort of "pop" music but this struck me quite hard.

From Anna Nalick's Drink Me

I hope that you're impressed
She's so pretty, I'm jealous
And she's lost like Ellis
In a painted past
In a looking glass
I see me looking back

I'll take another drink me, baby
Slowly I'll disappear
And wear my life like a barbed-wire necklace
And let's play truth or dare

i love, love, LOVE these lyrics by Bright Eyes:

First Day of My Life
This is the first day of my life
Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours was the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
I don't know where I am, I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go

So I thought I'd let you know
That these things take forever, I especially am slow
But I realized how I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning?
And I thought it was strange, you said everything changed
You felt as if you just woke up

And you said
"This is the first day of my life
Glad I didn't die before I met you
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy"

So if you want to be with me
With these things there's no telling
We'll just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery

Besides, maybe this time is different
I mean, I really think you like me

I could probably come up with a billion song lyrics here... but you opened the can of worms. ;) Here's another one:

From The Shins' New Slang:

And if you'd 'a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i'd 'a jumped from my tree
And i'd a danced like the king of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would 'a fared well.

'Stickman' -Elliott Smith

i see if you�re shooting blanks
out of emptiness
ain�t nothing that he want to kill
maybe your time I guess
sit and spin the world and its flipside
and i listen backwards for meanings
'cause i�m a stickman

i trawl from memory
the stillest kind of life
sign after sign
we don't paint
it�s the sharpest knife
project what�s done so everyone can see
the severe yellow color reflects all
and i'm a stickman
frames they go
one by one
if i stood it up
you see i'm on the run
from some monster off screen
cue in suns
lonely makes me blue
envy turns me green

hate might paint me red
if i load my magazine
but not just now when its easy to stay clean
no one knows when you're bleeding
and i'm a stickman
a stickman
i'm a stickman

Man, i cam back to this post because i was thinking of music again. I think about it all the time actually...I want to post more killer lyrics.

junk bond trader- E.S.

the imitation picks you up like a habit
writing in the glow of the tv's static
taking out the trash to the man
give the people something they understand
a stickman flashing a fine line smile
junk bond trader trying to sell a sucker a style
rich man in a poor man's clothes
the permanent installment of the daily dose
and you tell off when you tell it like it is
your world's no wider that your hatred of his
checking into a small reality
boring as a drug you take too regularly
the athlete's laugh; the broken crutch
the first true love that folded at the slightest touch
brought down like an old hotel
people digging through rubble for things they can resell
happy holidays said sick savior
the leaving lover that i still favor
i won't take your medicine, i don't need a remedy
to be everything i'm supposed to be
i don't want nobody else
i can do it by myself
we're meant to be together
now i'm a policeman directing traffic
keeping everything moving, everything static
i'm the hitchhiker you'll recognize passing
on your way to some everlasting
better sell it while you can
better sell it while you can
better sell it while you can
better sell it while you can

do they share a special tie with a certain memory?
exactly describe your ideological views?

Oh... oh... :-) this is "our" song. Or at least, I like to think of it that way. My boyfriend and I. The entire album makes me teary-eyed. *sigh*

Thanks for making me smile.

Northstar- pretty much any song off the album pollyanna

'hey mr. density
you forgot to leave a number
you forgot to name a street'

'i bought the world as a gift
now its too heavy to lift
and that's exactly how i'll leave it'

'there's fake gold melting in my hand'
