You know you can tell alot about a person from which types of lyrics they seem to like and/or quote. So I'm going to showcase the first 10 english (or japanese that I understand) songs on my playlist. A lyric is what usually reels me into -why- I keep the song on my playlist. Just a single lyric more often then not. I have a weakness for a cleverly turned phrase.
Minor Earth, Major Sky by A-ha
"I can see me in this lonely town
Not a friendly face around.
Can you hear me when I speak outloud
Hear my voice above the crowd?"
Stay on These Roads by A-ha
"Where joy should reign
These skies restrain
'Shadow your love...'
The voice trails off again"</i>
Take on Me by A-ha
"Oh, the things that you say
Is it life or just to play
my worries away
You're all the things I've got to remember"
The Living Daylights by A-ha
"Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
Hundred thousand people...I'm the one they blame
I've been waiting long for one of us to say
Save the darkness, let it never fade away
In the living daylights. "
The Sun Always Shines on TV by A-ha
"I Reached inside myself
And found nothing there
To ease the pressure off
My ever worrying mind."
Time and Again by A-ha
"The sun brought me,
The moon caught me.
The wind fought me..
The rain got me...
The road sent me..
For years bent me.
The stars overwhelmed me.
Time and again.."
The Remedy by Abandoned Pools
"Say this world is not so shallow,
When you can't beg, steal or borrow
Save your breath, your soul is hollow
And this is all too much too swallow."
"Be Near Me" by ABC
"All my dreams came true last night
All my hopes and fears
All my dreams came true last night
"Poison Arrow" by ABC
"If I were to say to you,
'Can you keep a secret?'
Would you know just what to do..
Or where to keep it?"
"The Look of Love" by ABC
"When your girl has left you out on the pavement
And your dreams fall apart at the seams
Your reason for living's your reason for leaving.
Don't ask me what that means"
