Why don't we do it in the road?

I was lstening to my ipod and, once again, thinking about how beautiful, outrageous, memorable some lyrics are.  People come up with these amazing words that are forever ingrained in your mind.  Here are some lyrics that always stand out to me:

 

1. Something- The Beatles

Something in the way she moves, attracts me like no other lover.

2. Break on Through- The Doors

I found an island in your eyes, country in your arms.

3. Pink Floyd- Echoes

And no one sings me lullabies, and no one makes me close my eyes.  So I throw the windows wide, and call to you across the sky...

4. Creep- Radiohead

You float like a feather in a beautiful world.  I wish I was special...you're so f-ing special...

5.  A Day in the Life- The Beatles

Found my way upstairs and had a smoke.  And somebody spoke and I went into a dream...

6.  Graceland- Paul Simon

she said losing love is like a window in your heart.  Everybody sees you're blown apart. Everbody sees the wind blow.

 

I have more but must run to a meeting...I'll be back!  In the meantime, tell me some of your favorite lyrics! Smile

Why don't we do it in the road is interesting all right.... The Beatles had some pretty trippy stuff!

Goo Goo Dolls-

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonigh

Styx talking on evils of cocaine-

Harmless and innocent you devil in white
You stole my will without a fight
You filled me with confidence, but you blinded my eyes
You tricked me with visions of paradise

 ---The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had---

Re: Why don't we do it in the road?

Ah, one of my favorite lyrics ever:

"Cold Beer, hot lights, my sweet, romantic teenage nights"

Billy Joel, "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant" 

The song's on, it reminded me of this thread, so I had to share. 

 

"We are stardust, we are golden, we are billion year old carbon

And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden"

Re: Why don't we do it in the road?

 That is one of my absolute favorite lines from a song.  Used to be my myspace headline.

Nights in White Satin- The Moody Blues

Nights in white satin,
Never reaching the end,
Letters Ive written,
Never meaning to send.

Beauty I'd always missed
With these eyes before,
Just what the truth is
I cant say anymore.

cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.

Gazing at people,
Some hand in hand,
Just what Im going thru
They can understand.

Some try to tell me
Thoughts they cannot defend,
Just what you want to be
You will be in the end,

And I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you.

Nights in white satin,
Never reaching the end,
Letters Ive written,
Never meaning to send.

Beauty Id always missed
With these eyes before,
Just what the truth is
I cant say anymore.

cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you.

cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you.

The Blowers Daughter- Damian Rice

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off of you

And...

I'm Not in Love- 10CC

I'm not in love
So don't forget it
It's just a silly phase I'm going through
And just because
I call you up
Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made
I'm not in love, no no, it's because..

"You've got to be crazy, gotta have a real need."

"You And Me" - Lifehouse

What day is it? And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive
I can't keep up and I can't back down
I've been losing so much time

'Cause it's you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

One of the things that I want to say just aren't coming out right
I'm tripping on words
You've got my head spinning
I don't know where to go from here

There's something about you now
I can't quite figure out
Everything she does is beautiful
Everything she does is right

Be yourself...... Everyone else is taken!

 Spinal Tap - "Big Bottom"

The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin'
That's what I said
The looser the waistband, the deeper the quicksand
Or so I have read

My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo
I'd like to sink her with my pink torpedo

Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about bum cakes, my girl's got 'em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?

I met her on Monday, 'twas my lucky bun day
You know what I mean
I love her each weekday, each velvety cheek day
You know what I mean

My love gun's loaded and she's in my sights
Big game is waiting there inside her tights, yeah

Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about mud flaps, my girl's got 'em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?

Re: Why don't we do it in the road?

Lately, this pretty much describes my life.  I'm getting there, but I'm not quite where I want to be just yet...Kind of, I've fracked up for a long time, and just starting to fix all my old mistakes.  I'm finally at a point where I can actually see the progress I've made, and that's a good thing.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Wasted on the Way 

Look around me
I can see my life before me
Running rings around the way
It used to be

I am older now
I have more than what I wanted
But I wish that I had started
Long before I did

And there's so much time to make up
Everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way

So much water moving
Underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away

Oh when you were young
Did you question all the answers
Did you envy all the dancers
Who had all the nerve

Look round you now
You must go for what you wanted
Look at all my friends who did and got what they deserved

So much time to make up
Everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way

So much water moving
Underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away

So much love to make up
Everywhere you turn
Love we have wasted on the way

So much water moving
Underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away

Let the water come and carry us away

Deftones (its on my profile player)

"Be Quiet And Drive (Far Away)"

This town dont feel mine
I'm fast to get away-FAR

I dressed you in her clothes
Now drive me far - away, away, away

It feels good to know your mine
Now drive me far - away, away, away
FAR away
I dont care where just FAR - away And I dont care

FAR - away
And I dont care where just FAR - away

Re: Why don't we do it in the road?
Ooh, my kind of thread! I have a bunch of favorites but I'll try to keep this short (sort of).
 
Escape - Metallica
"See them try to bring the hammer down. No damn chains can hold me to the ground!"
 
And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
"The crack of doom! Father, your handsome son is heading home! Still the wind blows, calm and silent, carries news from a distant shore." 
(from the same song)
"And as the lion slaughters man, I am the wolf and you're the lamb!"
 
Flight of Icarus - Iron Maiden
"In the name of god, my father, I'll fly!"
 
Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten - Nile
"I await the day when the claws of doom shall rise.
To drag down in their reeking talons the weary and hopeless remnants of a jaded, decayed, war-despairing mankind.
Of a day when the Earth shall open wide and the black, bottomless, yawning abyss engulfs the arrogant civilizations of man.
Chthonic retribution shall ascend.
Amidst universal pandemonium and those who slither and crawl shall rise again once more to inherit the Earth." 
 
Yeah, that last one was definitely a mouth-full. But I love the lyrics and I love how the vocalist delivers it with such power and genuine rage. Gives me chills!
