    Your favourite lyrics from songs

    I especially like the opening line of 'Design for Life' by Manic Street Preachers

    'Libraries gave is power' ......

    I was listening to a podcast featuring Lily Allen yesterday and was reminded of some of her lyrics, she’s really blunt but very clever I think. Even though I don’t actively listen to her songs I do like her & her talents. The Fear is a really good one.

    The jam
    Down in the tube station at midnight


    They smelt of pubs, and wormwood scrubs
    And too many right wing meetings
    My life swam around me
    It took a look and drowned me in its own existence
    The smell of brown leather
    It blended in with the weather
    Filled my eyes, ears, nose and mouth, it blocked all my senses
    Couldn't see, hear, speak any longer
    I'm down in the tube station at midnight, oh
    I said I was down in the tube station at midnight, oh

    "I don't wanna be left behind
    Distance was a friend of mine
    Catching breath in a web of lies
    I've spent most of my life
    Riding waves, playing acrobat
    Shadowboxing the other half
    Learning how to react
    I've spent most of my time

    Catching my breath, letting it go
    Turning my cheek for the sake of the show
    Now that you know, this is my life
    I won't be told what's supposed to be right"

    "You're in love with a psycho, and there's nothing you can do about it"

    I sing this to my husband.

    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today. And then one day you find ten years have got behind you. No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

    "We've all seen enough wrong and right To know everything's not black and white There's always something in between No matter how long or well you live You don't get anything you don't give Still no slate is clean For better or worse, anybody can Take a look around and find a better man Upright no matter how he's faring No matter what kind of shoes he's wearing The shoes he's wearing They don't make the man So many people out running around Handicapped before they hit the ground Thinking there's nowhere to go Shouldn't we all be looking for ways To keep on seeing our better days We're not chained to what we know But if your eyes are open and your mind is free There's no tellin' what a man can be Upright no matter how you're faring No matter what kind of shoes you're wearing The shoes you're wearing They don't make the man But if you can't walk through the best of times And the worst of times Find your feet still walking the line You'll never carry the load worth bearing"
