Dreaming the dreams I've dreamed my friend, loving the love I've loved to love is just a word I've heard, when things are being said, stories my poor head has told me, cannot stand the cold, and inbetween what might have been and what has come to pass, a misbegotten yes alas and bits of broken glass." James Taylor - Long ago and far away

    The sordid way her loaded phrases infiltrate your skull
    - The Stills 'Gender Bombs'

    Just tell me it's tearing you apart
    Just tell me you cannot sleep
    - Bloc Party 'Blue Light'

    You gave me more to live for
    More than you'll ever know
    - Jeff Buckley 'Last Goodbye'

    Lonely is the room, the bed is made, the open window lets the rain in
    Burning in the corner is the only one who dreams he had you with him
    My body turns and yearns for a sleep that will never come
    - Jeff Buckley 'Lover, You Should've Come Over'

    When you sleep I will creep into your thoughts
    Like a bad debt that you can't pay
    Take the easy way and give in, and let me in
    -Morrissey 'The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get'

    We live in a beautiful World
    -Coldplay 'Don't Panic'

    I took my baby's breath
    Beneath a chandelier of stars and atmosphere
    -The Killers 'Midnight Show'

    and finally...

    Burn down the disco, Hang the blessed DJ
    Because the music that they constantly play
    It says nothing to me about my life
    - The Smiths 'Panic'

    That was fun!!

    I have a few lyrics that are important to me, but I am not certain I can choose my favourite.

    'Thank you India, thank you terror, thank you disillusionment.
    Thank you nothingness, thank you clarity, thank you.
    Thank you silence.'
    Alanis Morissette - Thank You.

    'That I would be good, even if I did nothing,
    that I would be good, even if I get the thumbs down,
    that I would be good, if I got and stayed.. sick,
    that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds.
    That I would be loved, even when I love myself.
    That I would be lost, even when I am overwhelmed.'
    Alanis Morissette - That I would be good.

    'All around me are familiar faces, worn out places.. worn out faces.
    Bright and early for the daily races, going nowhere, going nowhere.'
    Gary Juleys/Tears 4 Fears - Mad World.

    Ugh, I know more clever ones, but I like singing those ones...

    'Creep', by Radiohead:

    When you were here before
    Couldn't look you in the eye
    You're just like an angel
    Your skin makes me cry
    You float like a feather
    In a beautiful World
    You're so f*cking special
    Wish I were special


    Notwithstanding the opening verse to a lyric I composed myself:

    Sold myself a picture-perfect portrait of your Soul
    Hung it on my inner wall
    You held me in your thrall
    Your words were none to speak of
    And your mind was hardly there
    Sweet nothings so substantial
    Lest the Truth be all laid bare


    The latter could be deemed a tad more context-specific; however, both, I feel, provide a pretty apt summation of my prevailing emotional state. It sure as Hell ain't pretty; but that don't mean it ain't beautiful, neither.

    Well I woke up in mid-afternoon
    'Cause that's when it all hurts the most
    I dream I never know anyone at the party
    And I'm always the host
    If dreams are like movies
    Then memories are films about ghosts

    From Counting Crows, Mrs Potter's Lullaby. Their albums and especially, that one, This Desert Life, have incredible lyrics.

    Another, more recent song, whose lyrics I find incredibly touching and very disturbing:

    "I had a dream last night
    A nightmare to be exact
    I couldn't take the heat
    And the sweat dripped from our backs
    I didn't go
    I waited for the midnight sun
    I didn't want to leave you
    'Cause I don't have anyone

    Don't paint the sun anymore
    Paint the Moon
    And the stars in an autumn sky
    Paint me cool blue waters
    Shades of grey
    Just don't let me live my life this way
    Without You"

    "Till i see that house in the pale blue skies, with golden fields that will burn your eyes, so lets take a drive, underneath the sun" - Feeder - Tell All Your Friends

    Bic Runga - Election Night

    Come around for tea
    Dance me round and round the kitchen
    By the light of my T.V
    On the night of the election
    Ancient stars will fall into the sea
    And the ocean floor sings her sympathy

    Drive me miles away
    Escape the sky that we lay under
    Of all the dreams we cannot shake
    We're always shaking in our slumber
    In the car don't let me fall asleep
    I might leave my heart here on your vinyl seat

    Well the sound of the city's now long gone
    And in the silence of the park and every darkened cinema
    Feel the little changes coming on
    So come to me where you belong

    Of all the bright machinery
    Love's the strangest of inventions
    How could this all just turn on me?
    When all I wanted was perfection
    And you are
    That's what you are to me
    You're the brightest star when all the world's asleep

    John Mayer - 1983

    I've these dreams I'm walking home
    Home when it used to be
    And everything is as it was
    Frozen in front of me

    Here I stand 6 feet small
    romanticizing years ago
    it's a bitter sweet feeling hearing
    "Wrapped Around Your Finger" on the radio

    And these days I wish I was 6 again
    Oh make me a red cape
    I wanna be Superman

    Oh, if only my life was more like 1983
    all these things would be more like they
    were at the start of me
    had it made in 83

    Thinking bout my brother Ben
    I miss him every day
    He looks just like his brother John
    But on an 18 month delay

    Here I stand 6 feet small
    and smiling cause I'm scared as hell
    kind of like my life is like a sequel to a movie
    where the actor's names have changed
    oh well

    Well these days
    I wish I was 6 again
    Oh make me a red cape
    I wanna be Superman

    Oh, if only my life was more like 1983
    All these things would be
    more like they were at the start of me

    JM is a lyrical GENIUS...im sure there are better examples of his songwriting, but this is the only one i could find currently. Some of it is just so clever and unique.

    And Puff that Mighty Dragon ceased his fearless roar.
