The best song lyrics ever written

Well, at least, these are my favorites:

"What if the prince on the horse in your fairy tale is right here in disguise? And what if the stars you've been reaching so high for are shining in his eyes?"
- "The Stuff that Dreams are Made of" by Carly Simon

"Six o'clock already? I was just in the middle of a dream. I was kissing Valentino by a crystal blue Italian stream."
- "Manic Monday" by The Bangles

"Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy, she'll beat you if she's able. You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet. Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table. But you only want the ones that you can't get."
- "Desperado" by The Eagles

"You'll never find your gold on a sandy beach. You'll never drill for oil on a city street. I know you're looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks, but there ain't no coup de ville hiding at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box."
- "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad" - Meatloaf

What are some of your favorite lyrics?

"Come sleep on the beach
Keep within my reach
I just want to die with you here
I'm feeling so high with you here
I'm wet and I'm cold
But thank God I ain't old
Why didn't I ever say what I mean?
I should have split home at fifteen
There's a story that the grass is so green
What did I see? Where have I been?
Nothing is planned by the sea and the sand"


"Sea and Sand" -The Who


"Between the iron gates of fate,
The seeds of time were sown,
And watered by the deeds of those
Who know and who are known;
Knowledge is a deadly friend
If no one sets the rules
The fate of all mankind I see
Is in the hands of fools"


"Epitaph"-King Crimson


"Could we possibly see
The keeper of all the keys
One key to rule them, he keeps in the great hall
Underneath a dark tower we call
Now we beat on the drum
But wary a dancer's call
And now the children the oracle has seen
Play on the old debts of his creed
And he doesn't even realise
He doesn't realise
That it's all happening
To let him know there's a change
Coming up behind him
While he's hanging on to the chain
That's the key that binds him

Now the changes are made
The colour of a Renaissance Fair
Six feet the wind blow and eyes above do breeze
Song for thee oh, keeper of the keys
And he doesn't even realise
He doesn't realise
That it's all happening
To let him know there's a change
Coming up behind him
While he's hanging on to the chain
That's the key that binds him"


"Keeper of the Keys"-HP Lovecraft


"Daddy, daddy, come and look
See what I have found
A little ways away from here
While digging in the ground

Come away melinda
Come in and close the door
Its nothing, just a picture-book
They had before the war

Daddy, daddy, come and see
Daddy, come and look
Why, theres four or five
Little melinda girls
Inside my picture book

Come away melinda
Come in and close the door
There were lots of little girls like you
Before they had the war

Oh daddy, daddy, come and see
Daddy, hurry do
Why, theres someone
In a pretty dress
Shes all grown up like you
Won't you tell me why

Come away melinda
Come in and close the door
That someone is your mummy
You had before the war

Daddy, daddy, tell me if you can
Why can't things be
The way they were
Before the war began

Come away melinda
Come in and close the door
The answer lies in yesterday
Before they had the war"


"Come Away, Melinda"-Velvet Fog

John Lennon

imagine


Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one






Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

There's no accounting for taste.

FC,

I've been thinking about how I can respond conversationally without coming across as a total dick.
