Ten favorite lines, or stanzas, from songs.

Solo le pido a Dios
Que el dolor no me sea indiferente
Que la reseca muerte no me encuentre
Vacio y solo sin haber hecho lo suficiente


All that I ask of God
Is that the pain is not indifferent to me.
That dry dry death does not find me
Empty and alone, without having done enough

That is from one of my very all time favorite songs. Solo Le Pido a Dios was written and recorded by Leon Gieco, an Argentine, back in the 70's. It's a protest song that became an anthem for all the youth of South America back in those times. Most of those young people, who are now in their mid 40's can still sing that song by heart and DO, whenever it is performed.

Still I sent up my prayer
Wondering where it had to go
With heaven full of astronauts
And the Lord on death row.

Joni Mitchell, The Same Situation.
From the album Court and Spark.

Mother told me to be something
So I'm afraid

Matthew Good, Failing the Rorschach Test
Beautiful Midnight

I stepped up on the platform
The man gave me the news
He said you must be joking son
Where did you get those shoes?

Steely Dan, Pretzel Logic
Pretzel Logic

There's a flag pole rag
And the wind won't stop
That's my soul up there

The Police, King of Pain

When I hit those white lines I'm gonna be gone
Like a greyhound down the road

Kansas, Down the Road
Song For America
(you really need to hear the whole song but I use that line a lot)

And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after,
I'd wipe away your tears
Just close your eyes dear

Sarah McLachlan, Possession
(one of the most beautiful love songs ever written)

Koo koo ki chu
Koo koo koo ki chu

John Lennon, I Am The Walrus
(in his last interview in Playboy John was telling the interviewer which songs he had written and which had been written by Paul. When he was asked about the inspiration for this song he said "acid")

If dogs run free
Why not me
Across the swamp of time

Bob Dylan, If Dogs Run Free

If you can just get your mind together
Then come across to me
We'll hold hands and then we'll watch the sunrise
From the bottom of the sea

Jimi Hendrix, Are You Experienced?

Ooooh what a good idea. Love your choices. Especially Sarah. She is a goddess.
Great idea and song choices too, loving the MGB and the Sarah MacLachlan
