Music & Lyrics

I love music and poetic lyrics that really make you think, remember and smile.

Some words are so powerful that I wait for my favorite lines every time I hear certain songs. Sometimes, they're in the chorus and other times, I have to listen a little harder because they're like buried gems.

I've had some time in the car recently driving to and from Orange County and actually listened to my iPod, something I don't normally do anywhere but at the gym, and had the chance to revisit some of my favorite lyrics:

And every time she sneezes I believe it's love
Anna Begins - Counting Crows

You can wish on four leaf clovers, but all the fields have been plowed over
And there's nothin left to do but fly away

California - Kenny Chesney

It's only an inch from me to you
Depending on what map you use

Cleveland - Jewel

I wanna be the only one, for miles and miles
Except for maybe you, and your simple smile

Cowboy Take Me Away - The Dixie Chicks

Things ain't good but things ain't boring
Falling or Flying - Grace Potter & the Nocturnals

Late at night, I write my own movie
And I am the star when I close my eyes

Except I look like Julia Roberts

And you're just the poor jerk that I walk on by

For A While - Trisha Yearwood

A good day is any day that you're alive
Good Day - Paul Westerberg

We skirt around the danger zone and don't talk about it later
Marlene On The Wall - Suzanne Vega

There's no more heart to bruise

The Power of Goodbye - Madonna

You got a face with a view
This Must be the Place - Talking Heads

You have no right to ask me how I feel
You have no right to speak to me so kind
Separate Lives - Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin

What are some of your favorite lyrics?
