"Look at us break our bonds in this kitchen, look at us rallying all our defenses." Alanis Morrissette, Underneath
"They paved paradise and put up a parking lot"- Joni Mitchell, Nig Yellow Taxi
Please don't confront me with my failures......I'm aware of them.......From "These Days".....Jackson Browne
I can't get no satisfaction....Cause I try and I try and I try and I try.......
I beg your pardon
but I never promised you a rose garden
Those were the days my friend.
We thought they'd never end.
We'd sing and dance forever and a day.
We lived the life we'd choose.
We'd fight and never lose.
For we were young and sure to have our way.
La la la la la la...
Those were the days . Oh yes, those were the days.
Boris Fomin 1900-1948
It's more than two lines, but you can't edit genius:
"You're faithful to the better man,
I'm afraid that he left.
So let me judge your love affair
in this very room where I have sentenced
mine to death."
Leonard Cohen - Take This Longing
I have a few:
Empire State of Mind by JayZ& Alicia Keys
"Now you're in New York,
These streets will make you feel brand new,
Big lights will inspire you"
Wait for me by Theory of a Deadman-
"You are not alone tonight
imagine me there by your side
it's so hard to be here so far away
from you. "
Switch off the moment by Dolores O'riordan
"I ask you now please, will you catch me when I fall
Or are you there at all"
How I wish, How I wish you were here- Pink Floyd
Dylan, following your lead, with the chorus of "My Back Pages" ...
"Ah, but I was so much older then
"I'm younger than that now."
"Godd@mn...you're a boy not a man
when you miss those lovin' arms."
