Saying it With Lyrics

Sometimes, that's the only way to say what you're thinking about : )

"Turning back for home I'm feeling so alone
I can't believe.
Climbing on the stair, I turn around and see you smiling there
In front of me."
(David Gray "Babylon")

"Oh, it's never too late to start living
To get out and have some fun.
The sun'll be just as shiny in the morning
As the first day the world begun."
(Liam Clancy "The 200 Year Old Alcoholic")

"I've heard this life is overrated,
But I hope that this gets better as we go."
(3 Doors Down "Here Without You")

"You're racing with the wind, you're flirting with death,
So have a cup of coffee and catch your breath."
(Phish "Fee")

"Let's go drive 'til morning comes
Watch the sun rise and fill our souls up.
Drink some wine 'til we get drunk ..."
(Dave Matthews Band "Crush")

"Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around.
The past is gone, but something might be found
To take its place."
(Gin Blossoms "Hey Jealousy")

"Sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes."
(Michael Smith "The Dutchman")

"I don't know whether I'm the boxer or the bag."
(Pearl Jam "Yellow Ledbetter")

"I don't want to come back down from this cloud
It's taken me all this time to find out what I need."
(Bush "Comedown")

"Yeah, we'll look at the stars when we're together."
(Jack Johnson "Better Together")

"Even though the moment passed me by
I still can't turn away.
All the dreams you never thought you'd lose
Got tossed along the way."
(Goo Goo Dolls "Name")

"I was brain-dead, locked up, numb, not up to speed.
I thought I'd pegged you an idiot's dream."
(REM "What's the Frequency, Kenneth?")

"I believe in the sand beneath my toes
The beach gives a feeling, an earthy feeling
I believe in the faith that grows
And the four right chords can make me cry."
(Third Eye Blind "Semi-Charmed Life")

"Who's gonna drive you home tonight?"
(The Cars "Drive")

"Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for
Black velvet, and that little boy smile."
(Alannah Miles "Black Velvet")

"You know, I mean to tell you
All the things I've been thinking
Deep inside, my friend."
(Dave Matthews Band "Crush")
