Sing Me A Song.

Every once in awhile when I'm listening to a song one particular line will just jump out at me. It isn't necessarily a full thought but just the way something is worded that makes me think or I just like the way it sounds! Here are a few lines from various songs that I have always liked....

"Pulled up to the motel, vacancy was buzzing. Pink and dirty neon, settled on the hood." - Joy Ride, The Killers

Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness, But it's better than drinkin' alone..." - Piano Man, Billy Joel

"Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see the light Yeah, lying with me half-awake Oh, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day" - One Day Like This, Elbow

I want you flow from the pen, bow and brush with paper and string, and canvas tight with ink in the air, to dust your light? from morning to the black of night " - Melody of You, Sixpence None The Richer

"Temporal deadzone where clocks are barely breathing...." - First Train Home, Imogen Heap

"I was just guessing
At numbers and figures Pulling the puzzles apart Questions of science Science and progress Do not speak as loud as my heart" - The Scientist, Coldplay

"I wake up, it's a bad dream No one on my side I was fighting But I just feel too tired To be fighting Guess I'm not the fighting kind" - A Bad Dream, Keane


  1. "When busy street a mess with people would stop to hold, their heads, heavy" Imogen Heap -Hide & Seek
