lyrical quiz meme

via lysana: The idea of this meme/quiz is as follows: I hit Shuffle on my MP3 player and picked my favorite line or two from the lyrics of the first 20 songs (1) from unique artists (2) with lyrics (3) in English (4) that weren't simply endless repeats of "jump with my baby tonight" or similar. If you feel so inclined, guess artists in the comments. I'll post the answers Wednesday.

1 So you think you'll take another piece of me / to satisfy your intellectual need
2 Their flesh was awakened to its ancient melody / But they bound it with ropes of self-righteous civility
3 She lives in the place in the side of our lives / where nothing is ever put straight
4 The only things real to us are the words
5 You're gonna walk back through the heartaches / you're gonna walk back through the pain
6 Why, why, why, why, why, why are you never home ?
7 Hey rain, get out of my window/ 'cause he ain't here with me
8 He brewed a song of love and hatred, / oblique suggestions, and he waited
9 She has a toke and makes a joke about the alley man / Never pleasured from the treasure in a garbage can
10 Midnight creeps so slowly into hearts of men who need more than they get
11 Protons, neutrons I ate a rock from the moon
12 You better save it babe / Save it for your rainy day
13 I think we should put some mountains here. Otherwise, what are all the characters going to fall off of?
14 Splitting, splitting sound / Silver heels spitting, spitting snow.
15 Guiding a ship, it takes more than your skill / it's the compass inside; it's the strength of your will.
16 Sheep on hillside, bird on bough / Pause and listen in amaze
17 Every time your eyes meet mine / Clouds of qualm burst into sunshine
18 Backwoods folks is old and brittle / But they sway like a tree to the sound of a fiddle
19 The general sat, and the lines on the map / moved from side to side
20 Welcome here from outer space / The milky way still in your eyes

I think several of these won't be hard for old-timers like me. Not sure about the others.
