Ten of your favorite lines in songs...
And the wind is crying, from a love that won't grow cold
My lover, she is lying, on the dark side of the globe . . .
And our time is flyin' see the candle burnin' low
Is the new world rising, from the shambles of the old
If we could just join hands.
(Led Zeppelin, The Rover)
Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love
Can the child within my heart rise above
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the seasons of my life
Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you get bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older too
(Landslide, Stevie Nicks)
Spent my days with a woman unkind, Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
Made up my mind to make a new start, Going To California with an aching in my heart.
Someone told me there's a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
(Going to California, Led Zeppelin)
On a dark new year's night
on the west coast of Clare
I heard your voice singing.
Your eyes danced the song,
your hands played the tune.
T'was a vision before me . . .
As you turned to go, I heard you call my name.
You were like a bird in a cage, spreading its wings to fly.
'The old ways are lost', you sang as you flew and I wondered why.
(The Old Ways, Loreena McKennitt)
"L'amour et un oiseau rebelle, que nul ne peut apprivoiser,
et c'est bien en vain q'on l'appelle, s'il lui convient de refuser!
(Habanera from Carmen, Bizet)
Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
Travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something . . .
(Sweet Dreams, Eurythmics)
Non trove pace notte ne di, ma pur mi piace languir cosi.
(Voi che sapete from "Le Nozze di Figaro, W.A. Mozart)
Will you hold me sacred?
will you hold me tight?
Can you colorize my life I'm so sick of black and white?
Can you make it a little less old?
Will you make me some magic, with your own two hands?
Can you build an Emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something that I can take home?
(I Would Do Anything for Love, Meatloaf)
I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in.
’cause I got too much life,
Running through my veins, going to waste.
(Feel, Robbie Williams)
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give fate a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
(I Hope You Dance, LeeAnn Womak)
