Lyrics meme

Lyrics meme (seen in various journals):
1. On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first twenty-five songs on the list (no matter how cheesy or embarrassing).
2. Write down one (or two) line(s) of the song. Try to avoid lines that include the title.
3. Have your friends comment and see if they know the songs.
4. When someone guesses correctly, strike out the line and list the correct name of the song next to it.

(Note: I had to go through about 50 songs to get 25 that had words and weren't author-unknown folk tunes or jazz standards.)




1. Mistakes are made because words, words are misunderstood

2. Drives you crazy, sends you screaming for the door

3. It could be you / It's a sky blue sky / Satellites are out tonight "Let X=X," Laurie Anderson

4. People walkin' on the moon / Smog will get you pretty soon

5. My heart is beating, I'm alive / But I don't call this living

6. The swan was in her movement, / and the morning in her smile "The Queen of Argyll" (my version is by Silly Wizard)

7. I’ve had to work much harder than this / For something I want don’t try to resist me "Open Your Heart," Madonna

8. Sleep, I sleep every day / Wipe the cobwebs away, I need to be loved

9. They tell me life begins at 40 / Well if that's true I hope time crawls

10. I can feel the knives inside my brain / I stand alone at the threshold of my pain

11. My footsteps are ticking like water dripping from the tree

12. Enterprise, expedition / Invitation and invention

13. Come with me to the weary town / discos silent under tiles

14. No more uniforms, we don't care / about the color of your shirt, shoes, skin or hair

15. All the birds that were singing are flown, except you alone.

16. Bodies without minds / I hear you're the one with the bleeding heart

17. They cut off my voice / so I grew two voices

18. So it's time we take a ride / We can cast all of your hang-ups over the seaside

19. I'm just a simple guy, I live from day to day / A ray of sunshine melts my frown and blows my blues away

20. i had dreams long ago / of the love i would surely know / but it didn't turn out like that

21. We swore each other everlasting love / She said well yeah I know

22. Your voice is moving through me / You talk as if you knew me

23. now if you're sad and feeling blue / Go out and buy a brand new pair of shoes

24. You took a poison arrow / And you aimed it at my heart

25. So many tears I was searching / So many tears I was wasting, oh.
