Lyrical quotes

100 song lyrics. Either write down a few numbers from 1-100 before you open the cut, and use those, just pick one or there is a handy random number generator here. They're all scrambled up anyway.

Going to try this myself as soon as I get some sleep.

(Cut for length.)

1. And suddenly I find myself
Listening to a man I've never known before
Telling me about the sea
All his love til eternity

2. When you're stoned, baby
And I am drunk

3. Your light eclipsed the moon tonight

4. Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette

5. Are you aware of how much you complicate me?

6. A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend with weed is better

7. Said I don't want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

8. Why did you come back with me tonight?
Is this love, or just infatuation for you?

9. Two summers with the light on
Too tired to fall asleep

10. Tell her about it
Tell her all your crazy dreams
Let her know you need her
Let her know how much she means

11. Don't be scared, you are alive

12. Well, I'm running down the road
Tryin' to loosen my load
I've got seven women on my mind

13. And they said that when we grew up
we'd get married and never split up
Oh we never did it, although I often thought of it

14. Give me the sense to wonder
To wonder if I'm free

15. Life may have just come to bury me
But I'm not afraid of what I see
I'm not afraid of the world

16. But who can say
If the love is not returned
It furthers by the day?

17. They all sit around and wait for me to give up
But I couldn't stop for death

18. Give me one reason to stay here
And I'll turn right back around

19. Wait a minute, I never told you how I feel
Probably because I don't really understand you

20. Tell her about it
Tell her everything you feel
Give her every reason to accept
That you're for real

21. And I tried so hard to resist
When you held me in your handsome fist
And reminded me of the night we kissed
And of why I should be leaving

22. We may lose and we may win
Though we will never be here again

23. I never knew that you'd get married
I would be living down here on my own

24. Prison doors sound like wedding bells
As you ask for change at the wishing well

25. To avoid complications
She never kept the same address

26. Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see

27. Spring blooms and you find a love that's true
But you don't know what now to do
Cause the chase is all you know
And she stopped running months ago

28. Well we were born within an hour of each other
Our mothers said we could be sister and brother

29. Love may have just come to bury me

30. Time has gathered us here by coincidence
That's why what we say doesn't make any sense

31. We tried to make it work, you in a cocktail skirt
And me in a suit, but it just wasn't me
You're used to wearing less, and now your life's a mess

32. On that damp and lonely
Thursday years ago

33. Got no reason for coming to me
In the rain running down

34. The dawn in all its majesty
Is stealing me away

35. And I said: "Let's all meet up in the year 2000,
Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown?
Be there, two o'clock by the fountain down the road."

36. Another heartfelt scar
I love you, Jessica

37. 36 hours but my mind is fresh
Live for the moment then I'm gone

38. But knowing now for certain that you were always right
Because if a breeze could blow you out of my life
It's only smoke and ashes baby
Only smoke and ashes baby

39. Observe the blood, the rose tattoo
Of the fingerprints on me from you

40. Do you remember in a favourite movie scene
Lovers kissed through hopeless tears

41. Listen boy, don't want to see you let a good thing slip away
You know I don't like watching anybody make the same mistakes I made

42. Too dumb to keep your clothes on
Too cynical to speak

43. You had one eye on the mirror as you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner

44. We were born before the wind
Who are we to understand?

45. I don't like this place, I don't like what it's become

46. I say there's fire down below
You say it's only smoke and ashes baby

48. But she didn't understand
She just smiled and held my hand

49. So you tell me that everything's alright
And you're doing fine, well don't believe the hype

50. Picture yourself on a train in a station
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes

51. As for me, well, I'll find someone who's not going cheap in the sales
A nice little housewife who'll give me the steady life
And not keep going off the rails

52. You may tire of me
As our December sun is setting
For I'm not who I used to be

53. You had me several years ago when I was still quite naive
Well you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave

54. These wrinkles masterfully disguise
The youthful boy below

55. I've been a lot of things
But never yours

56. All lies and jest, still,
A man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest

57. You never call me when you’re sober
You only want it cause it’s over

58. I'm missing you, that's all I know

59. I was the one that let you know
I was your sorry ever after, 74/75

60. You never let me know how you feel
Probably because I always confuse you

61. Sing along with the common people
Sing along and it might just get you through

62. On the back of a motorbike
With your arms outstretched, trying to take flight

63. I still see her face
As beautiful as day
It's easy to remember
Remember my love that way

64. You just didn't drink enough to say you love me

65. And I admit that I have spent some time in confusion
Not knowing what is or is not illusion

66. Too tired to unlock it
Too scared to ask for more

67. Feels like someone
Ripped my heart out
Painted it black
And called it love

68. Where were you while we were getting high?

69. Take a look in my face for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me

70. Funny how they could have lived
Yeah, funny how they really live

71. I'd heard rumors and I'd heard talk
About the trail you'd left of broken hearts

72. Take It easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy

73. Rent a flat above a shop
Cut your hair and get a job
Smoke some fags and play some pool
Pretend you never went to school

74. And all you see is where else you could be when you're at home
And out on the street are so many possibilities to not be alone

75. You and I had to be the standing joke of the year

76. Other evidence has shown
That you and I are still alone
We skirt around the danger zone
And don't talk about it later

77. Drag you down and pull you in
And tell you, nice? You'll never win

78. "Don't give away the goods too soon"
Is what she might have told me

79. Standing at the door of the Pink Flamingo crying in the rain
It was a kind of so-so love and I'm going to make sure it doesn't happen again

80. But my right is your wrong
And when you're right then I'm left with nothing

81. It's not easy
Nothing to say cause it's already said
It's never easy

82. I do believe that something somewhere sent me
To you, astray, and the bold raging flame of your heart is making me stay

83. Please forgive me If I act a little strange

84. Marlene watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all

85. And every road I walked would take me down to the sea

86. Feels like lightning running through my veins every time I look at you

87. I'll never let you down
Cause I'll never be around

88. Even if I am in love with you
All this to say, what's it to you?

89. She came from Greece, she had a thirst for knowledge
She studied sculpture at St. Martin's college

90. I believe that we are forever something which is incomplete

91. You walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot

92. So hold on to your dreams
Because your nightmares
Might seem like they're your reality

93. But Deborah, I just wanted you to know
I remember every single thing

94. She's a real nice girl and she's always there for you
But a nice girl wouldn't tell you what you should do

95. I don't recall a single care
Just greenery and humid air

96. Oh Deborah, do you recall?
Your house was very small with woodchip on the wall

97. And time has moved so fast that now there does not seem to be any
And once it felt that there was more than plenty

98. You will never understand
How it feels to live your life
With no meaning of control
And with nowhere else to go

99. And just dance, and drink, and screw
Because there's nothing else to do

100. They all tell me that I'm shamefully addicted
But it's loving you that sets me free
