Lyrics of the Week

Postby Colboy on Fri Feb 09, 2001 1:04 am

"Father McKenzie
Writing the words of a sermon that no one hear,
no ones comes near.
Look at him working,
Darning his socks in the night when nobody's near,
What does he care?<P>...Ah, look at all the loney people..."<P> ---Elenor Rigby, Beatles<P>There. If the lyric's too long just trim it okay? You go girl! hehehehe

/*I thought about the army, I dropped out and joined a band instead...
Grew a moustache and a mod, got a job at Chic Filet --
Citing artistic differences, the band broke up in May
And in June reformed without me, and they got a different name
I nuked another Grandma's Apple Pie and hung my head in shame*/<P>Army, by Ben Folds Five<P>But that's a bit long. If you're looking for a one-line lyric, here's one of my favourites:<P>"It's coming from the feel that it ain't exactly real; or it's real, but it ain't exactly there."<P>Democracy, by Leonard Cohen<P>And if you think that the "Lyrics of the Week" isn't working out, perhaps set up a randomizer that displays a different lyric every time the screen loads. That'd be neat... of course, I have no idea how difficult that would be.

Whatever you do, <B>don't</B> drop "Lyric of the Week!" It's a great idea!<P>Unfortunately, I have no submissions at this time.<P>Dammit, song lyrics pop into my head all day long, but when it gets down to crunch time, I blank out! :P<P>I'll have to think on this.<P>------------------

Yeh. Like, you've got to put 'em somewhere.<P>The following (from Ani DiFranco's 'Blood in the Boardroom') have been chasing themselves around my head for a while; it's kind of a goofy song, but I like the image:<P>they can make straight lines
out of almost anything
except for the line
of my upper lip when it curls<P>mike

All right, I got one:<P>We were once so close to Heaven
Peter came out and gave us medals,
declaring us the nicest of the damned.<P>They Might Be Giants, "Road Movie to Berlin"<P>------------------

If I hadn't made me, I'd've fallen apart by now.
I won't let 'em make me, it's more than I can allow.
So when I make me, I won't be papier-mache.
And if I fuck me... I'll fuck me in my own way.<P>-Incubus, Make Yourself<P>Incubus is special <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">

"Now I'm walking again, to the beat of a drum,
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart....
Only shadows ahead, barely clearing the roof,
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief...."<P>--Crowded House, "Don't Dream It's Over"

Crowded House rulez! Hehehe yeah, Incubus' nice too although I'm not much of a fan. Anyway, you want a weird lyric? Post this up and let's see if you guys can figure this out. (If you're an anime freak you might know where this lyric came from.)<P>"Omoi de ni dakarete imawa okubyoo ni natte
Mitami sae kanjinarenai ikikata e nanderu"
by Cham (this is already a clue)<P>Enjoy!<P>

Another possible set of lyrics for the coming week:<P>"Once in a life, you can find the time to see....
Then you get to take it down, turn around, temporary sanity....
And the mountain disappears without a trace,
And all it took was a sudden leap of faith..."<P> - Kenny Loggins, "Leap of Faith"

"And it's one more day up in the canyon,
And it's one more night in Hollywood,
Been so long since I seen the ocean,
Think I should...."<P>Counting Crows, "A Long December"<P>Always a song I've felt would pull me out of bad moods.

"And you don't seem to understand
A shame, you seemed an honest man
And all those fears you hold so dear
Will turn to whisper in your ear..."
