    They might be giants?
    Mine is;
    'If a double decker bus, kills the both of us, to die by your side is a heavenly way to die'

    Could never pick just one favourite but here's a few verses of a much loved song:


    Ever since I was a kid at school
    I messed around with all the rules
    Apologised then realised
    I'm not different after all

    Me and the boys thought we had it sussed
    Valentinos all of us
    My dad said we looked ridiculous
    But boy we broke some hearts
    In and out of jobs, running free
    Waging war with society
    Dumb blank faces stare back at me
    But nothing ever changed

    Promises made in the heat of the night
    Creeping home before it got too light
    I wasted all that precious time
    and blamed it on the wine

    Love, Love is a verb,
    Love is a doing word,
    Fearless on my breath



    Newton Faulkner - Teardrop

    Tarby - that song might make you sing - but everytime I hear it - something bad happens, it's a very unlucky song for me and is banned in my house, and i would walk out of a shop or anyone elses house if they were playing it!!!

    Like the smiths on though -
    prefer how soon is now lyric - there's a club if you'd like go
    you could meet somebody who really loves you
    so you go and you stand on your own
    and you leave on your own
    and you go home and you cry and you want to die...

    Such a happy chap isn't he? Wanted to name my mum's cat morrissey but she wouldn't let me!


    And the most rididculous song I get up singing to ???
    That goes to Vengaboys - Boom boom boom .... but shhh don't tell anyone, it's quite embarrasing isn't it?

    I wouldn't say this was a favourite as such but it's one that has stuck in my mind for years, as bad as Rick Astley....

    Congregation, please be seated and open your prayer guides to the book
    Of revelations, psalm 69

    Drinking the blood of jesus
    Drinking it right from his veins
    Learning to swim in the ocean
    Learning to prowl in his name

    The body of christ looked unto me
    A preacher with god-given hands
    He wants you to suck on the holy ghost
    And swallow the sins of man

    (Ministry, Psalm 69)

    We can dance if we want to
    We can leave your friends behind
    'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
    Well they're no friends of mine

    A place where they will never find
    And we can act like we come from out of this world
    Leave the real one far behind
    And we can dance

    i've waited hours for this
    i've made myself so sick
    i wish i'd stayed asleep today
    i never thought this day would end
    i never thought tonight could ever be

    No reason to get excited," the thief, he kindly spoke,
    "There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke.
    But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate,

    Now we're getting to the classy stuff, lol :thumbsup: Liddle o' me

    In this dirty old part of the city where the sun refuse to shine
    People tell me there ain't no use in trying
    Now, my girl, you're so young and pretty
    And one thing I know is true,
    You'll be dead before your time is due, (I know)

    Watch my daddy in bed and dying
    Watch his hair been turning grey
    He's been working and slaving his life away, (Oh yes I know)

    He's been working so hard
    I've been working too baby, (every night and day)

    With an ironclad fist I wake up and
    French kiss the morning
    While some marching band keeps
    its own beat in my head
    While we're talking
    About all of the things that I long to believe
    About love and the truth and
    what you mean to me
    And the truth is baby you're all that I need

    "Expecting To Fly"

    There you stood
    on the edge of your feather,
    Expecting to fly.
    While I laughed,
    I wondered whether
    I could wave goodbye,
    Knowin' that you'd gone.
    By the summer it was healing,
    We had said goodbye.
    All the years
    we'd spent with feeling
    Ended with a cry,
    Babe, ended with a cry,
    Babe, ended with a cry.

    I tried so hard to stand
    As I stumbled
    and fell to the ground.
    So hard to laugh as I fumbled
    And reached for the love I found,
    Knowin' it was gone.
    If I never lived without you,
    Now you know I'd die.
    If I never said I loved you,
    Now you know I'd try,
    Babe, now you know I'd try.
    Babe, now you know I'd try,
    Babe.

    From a song about getting old:

    "I can't see the lines
    I used to think I could read between"

    &
    "Like A Hurricane"

    Once I thought I saw you
    in a crowded hazy bar,
    Dancing on the light
    from star to star.
    Far across the moonbeam
    I know that's who you are,
    I saw your brown eyes
    turning once to fire.

    You are like a hurricane
    There's calm in your eye.
    And I'm gettin' blown away
    To somewhere safer
    where the feeling stays.
    I want to love you but
    I'm getting blown away.

    I am just a dreamer,
    but you are just a dream,
    You could have been
    anyone to me.
    Before that moment
    you touched my lips
    That perfect feeling
    when time just slips
    Away between us
    on our foggy trip.

    Who's this from?

    Snowtiger jogged my memory 'bout this one.

    She used to work in a diner
    Never saw a woman look finer
    I used to order just to watch
    her float across the floor
    She grew up in a small town
    Never put her roots down
    Daddy always kept movin',
    so she did too.

    Somewhere on a desert highway
    She rides a Harley-Davidson
    Her long blonde hair
    flyin' in the wind
    She's been runnin' half her life
    The chrome and steel she rides
    Collidin' with
    the very air she breathes
    The air she breathes.

    Thought this was 'hotukdeals' slogan ??? he he:-D

    If you want a lover
    Ill do anything you ask me to
    And if you want another kind of love
    Ill wear a mask for you
    If you want a partner
    Take my hand
    Or if you want to strike me down in anger
    Here I stand
    Im your man

    If you want a boxer
    I will step into the ring for you
    And if you want a doctor
    Ill examine every inch of you
    If you want a driver
    Climb inside
    Or if you want to take me for a ride
    You know you can
    Im your man

    Ah, the moons too bright
    The chains too tight
    The beast wont go to sleep
    Ive been running through these promises to you
    That I made and I could not keep
    Ah but a man never got a woman back
    Not by begging on his knees
    Or Id crawl to you baby
    And Id fall at your feet
    And Id howl at your beauty
    Like a dog in heat
    And Id claw at your heart
    And Id tear at your sheet
    Id say please, please
    Im your man

    And if youve got to sleep
    A moment on the road
    I will steer for you
    And if you want to work the street alone
    Ill disappear for you
    If you want a father for your child
    Or only want to walk with me a while
    Across the sand
    Im your man



    and for a one liner
    'the place is dead as heaven on a Saturday night'

    "Elvis isn't dead coz I heard him on the radio!"

    Last offering from me , too many good songs echoing around inside my head !
    These lyrics are taken from one of the most underrated albums ever ! I.M.O. of course

    The monkey sat on a pile of stone
    And he stared at the broken bone in his hand
    Strains of a Viennese quartet rang out across the land
    The monkey looked up at the stars
    And he thought to himself
    Memory is a stranger
    History is for fools
    And he cleaned his hands in a pool of holy writing
    Turned his back on the garden and set out for the nearest town
    Hold on hold on soldier

    When you add it all up
    The tears and the marrowbone
    There's an ounce of gold
    And an ounce of pride in each ledger
    And the Germans kill the Jews
    And the Jews kill the Arabs
    And the Arabs kill the hostages
    And that is the news
    And is it any wonder that the monkey's confused
    He said Mama Mama, the President's a fool
    Why do I have to keep reading these technical manuals
    And the joint chiefs of staff
    And the brokers on Wall Street said
    Don't make us laugh, you're a smart kid
    Time is linear
    Memory's a stranger
    History is for fools
    Man is a tool in the hands
    Of the great God Almighty
    And they gave him command of a nuclear submarine
    Sent him back in search of the Garden of Eden

    Used to like that Roachford song - the way that I feel, not heard it for ages
    Not a big fan of Queen but like a song off Innuendo - I can't live without you
    'I can't live with you
    but I can't live without you
    I can't breathe if you stay
    but I can't bear if you go away'

    Poems and Prayers and Promises, things that we believe in
    how sweet it is to love someone how right it is to care,
    how long its been since yesterday,
    what about tomorrow,
    what about or dreams and all the memories we share.

    I love the sentiment behind the following lyrics....



    Lets take a look at these crows feet, just look
    Sitting on the prettiest eyes
    Sixty 25th of decembers
    Fifty-nine 4th of julys
    You cant have too many good times, children
    You cant have too many lines
    Take a good look at these crows feet
    Sitting on the prettiest eyes


    and also.........

    I read bad poetry
    Into your machine
    I save your messages
    Just to hear your voice
    You always listen carefully
    To awkward rhymes
    You always say your name,
    Like I wouldn't know it's you,
    At your most beautiful

    At my most beautiful
    I count your eyelashes, secretly
    With every one, whisper I love you
    I let you sleep
    I know you're closed eye watching me,
    Listening
    I thought I saw a smile

    I think I'm coming over all soppy now!:oops:

    Son I'm thirty
    I only went with your mother cos she's dirty!!

    Then I'll use that voice that you find annoyin' and say something like
    "yeah, intelligent input, darlin', why don't you just have another beer then?"

    "Elvis isn't dead coz I heard him on the radio!"



    Reminds me of:

    "There's a guy works down the chip shop swears he's Elvis
    Just like you swore to me that you'd be true
    There's a guy works down the chip shop swears he's Elvis
    But he's a liar and I'm not sure about you"

    - Kirsty MacColl

    When I wake up in the morning, love
    And the sunlight hurts my eyes
    And something without warning, love
    Bears heavy on my mind

    Then I look at you
    And the world's alright with me
    Just one look at you
    And I know it's gonna be

    A lovely day (lovely day, lovely day, lovely day, lovely day)
    (Lovely day, lovely day, lovely day, lovely day)
    A lovely day (lovely day, lovely day, lovely day, lovely day)
    (Lovely day, lovely day, lovely day, lovely day)

    When the day that lies ahead of me
    Seems impossible to face
    When someone else instead of me
    Always seems to know the way

    (I am just an old romantic - love these words
    Makes me count my blessings
    )
