Your favourite song verse?

Got many favourites, here's one of them...

With, without

And who'll deny that's what the fighting's all about

Get out of the way, it's a busy day

And I've got things on my mind

For want of the price of tea and a slice

The old man died.

"My doctor tells me I need to start slowing it down, but there's more old drunks than there are old doctors so lets all have another round."

The way that you hold me

Whenever you hold me

There's some kind of magic inside you

That keeps me from running

But just keep it coming

How'd you learn to do the things you do?

(Nobody does it better - Carly Simon)

It's a thrill to see your imagination

Just watching you is an education

What's in your mind, is my fascination

It blows my mind, it set's my heart racing

(You're my star - Stereophonics)

I'll add more as and when I remember :P

I love you, the best

Better than all the rest

I love you, the best

Better than all the rest

That I meet in the summer

Indian summer

That I meet in the summer

Indian summer

I love you, the best

Better than all the rest

(Indian Summer - The Doors)

What I am to you is not real

What I am to you, you do not need

What I am to you is not what you mean to me

You give me miles and miles of mountains

And I'll ask for the sea

She

May be the beauty or the beast

May be the famine or the feast

May turn each day into a heaven or a hell

She may be the mirror of my dreams

A smile reflected in a stream

She may not be what she may seem

Inside her shell

Buffet - A Pirate Looks at 40

I've done a bit of smugglin'

I've run my share of grass

I made enough money to buy Miami

But I p***ed it away so fast

Never meant to last

Never meant to last

Tonight let's close the door,

And hold on to the nearest thing.

Let's keep hanging on,

So we won't fall apart.

Let's make love tonight,

Like we've never had a broken heart.

Don't be afraid to close your eyes,

Pretend I'm somone that you love.

And I won't have to tell you lies,

Because it's not you I'm thinking of.

I see me through your eyes

Breathing new life, flying high

Your love shines the way into paradise

So I offer my life as a sacrifice

One of my favorite song writers is Gordon Lightfoot...

This song: "The House You Live In" is 'life' advice I would have liked to have told my son

- had I had a son...

Go first in the world, go forth with your fears

Remember a price must be paid

Be always too soon, be never too fast

At the time when all bets must be laid

Beware of the darkness, be kind to your children

Remember the woman who waits

And the house you live in will never fall down

If you pity the stranger who stands at your gate

When you're caught by the gale and you're full under sail

Beware of the dangers below

And the song that you sing should not be too sad

And be sure not to sing it too slow

Be calm in the face of all common disgraces

And know what they're doin' it for

And the house you live in will never fall down

If you pity the stranger who stands at your door

When you're out on the road and feelin' quite lost

Consider the burden of fame

And he who is wise will not criticize

When other men fail at the game

Beware of strange faces and dark dingy places

Be careful while bending the law

And the house you live in will never fall down

If you pity the stranger who stands at your door

When you're down in the dumps and not ready to deal

Decide what it is that you need

Is it money or love, is it learnin' to live

Or is it the mouth you must feed

Be known as a man who will always be candid

On questions that do not relate

And the house you live in will never fall down

If you pity the stranger who stands at your gate

And the house you live in will never fall down

If you pity the stranger who stands at your gate

Old Red Eyes is back

His shoulders ache all over and his brain is sore

He pours a drink and listens to his body thaw

They're only red from all the thoughts unused inside my head

They're only red from all the things I could have done instead

So when you look into these eyes I hope you realise

They could never be blue

Another one I like (I won't post the entire song this time I promise!) is by Al Stewart from the song "The Last Day Of June 1934", about the rise of Nazi Germany...

"On the night that Ernst Roehm died, voices rang out

In the rolling Bavarian hills.

And swept through the cities, and danced in the gutters

Grown strong like the joining of wills.

Oh echoed away like a roar in the distance

In moonlight carved out of steel.

Singing "All the lonely, so long and so long

You don't know how I long, how I long

You can't hold me, I'm strong now I'm strong

Stronger than your law"

The line about "Moonlight carved out of steel" has always been one of my favorites...

And another by Gordon Lightfoot - From "Farewell To Annabel"

"How many nights did you cry your dreams to sleep?"

Though you be left behind,

For the rose will grow on Greenland's ice,

Before we change our minds."

Here's one from SImon & Garfunkle:

(Last verse- though the whole song is just as good)

"

I am a rock

I am an island

I have my books

And my poetry to protect me

I am shielded in my armor

Hiding in my room

Safe within my womb

I touch no one and no one touches me

I am a rock

I am an island

And a rock feels no pain

And an island never cries"

One day me Ma's relations, they came to visit me,

Just as me Father's kinfolk were just sittin' down to tea.

We tried to smooth things over, but they soon began to fight,

An' bein' strictly neutral, I bashed everyone in sight!

It was the greatest mix-up, that you have ever seen,

Me Father he was Orange, an' me Mother she was Green!
