Springsteen was the first to come to mind for me too. From "Brilliant Disguise":


Tonight our bed is cold
I'm lost in the darkness of our love
God have mercy on the man
Who doubts what he's sure of

Roy Tucker

Girl, your eyes have the mist from the smoke of a distant fire.

I will choose a path that's clear. I will choose free will.

Begging mercy for their si-i-i-ns, satan laughing spreads his wi-i-i-ngs.

This was never one of my favorite songs, but...


"The record shows I took the blows, and did it my way!"

And GAC will probably like this one...


"Now I need a place to hide away, oh, I believe in yesterday."

...and one from Garth...


"So tell that someone that you love just what you're thinking of, if tomorrow never comes"

"And in the end, the love you get, is equal to the love you give"

That was the first one that came to mind for me.

Some of mine:

"Nothing really matters...nothing really matters to me"

"And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death"

"Think of me when you close your eyes
But don't look back when you break your ties
Yeah think of me when you're coming down
But don't look back when leaving town today"

"If the real thing dont do the trick
No, you better make up something quick
You gonna burn burn burn burn it to the wick
Ooooooohhhh, barra barracuda."

"cause Im hung up on dreams Ill never see,
Yeah babe, oh help me babe,
Or this will surely be the end of me, yeah."

"At night, when all the worlds asleep,
The questions run so deep
For such a simple man.
Wont you please, please tell me what weve learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am."

"Ghosts appear and fade away"

"Did you stand by me
No, not at all
Did you stand by me
No way"

And last but not least:

"So now I'm praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don't think that I can really survive
I'll never break my promise or forget my vow
But God only knows what I can do right now
I'm praying for the end of time
It's all that I can do
Praying for the end of time, so I can end my time with you!!!
Boy:
It was long ago and it was far away
and it was so much better than it is today
Girl:
It never felt so good
It never felt so right
And we were glowing like
A metal on the edge of a knife"

Other Beatles I've liked....

"You say you want a revolution, well, you know
We all want to change the world"

"Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly"

"Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner, but he knew it couldn't last."

"I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together."

"Half of what I say is meaningless"

"Let me take you down"

"She said I know what it's like to be dead"

"It took awhile for her to figure out she could run, but when she did, she was long gone, long gone"

"If you want to talk fishin', I guess that'll be okay"

"I wonder if anyone would think I've flipped if I went to L.A. via Omaha"

There was this big bang once and we were left here to fill in the blanks
There was this big bang once, now we're aimlessly drifting in space
We're gonna need an explanation for rational thought
Enlightenment and the weight of our hearts
In a world of entropy, why can't we just simply be?
And don't feed me lines, intelligent design

There was this big bang once, why are we back down on our knees, huh?

All of these are from my favorite band, So most of there songs are really deep.

1. "This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.
Embrace this moment. Remember. We are eternal.
All this pain is an illusion."

2. Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescents.
Difficult to see you in this light.
Please forgive this bold suggestion, but
Should you see your Maker's face tonight,
Look Him in the eye, look Him in the eye, and tell Him:
"I never lived a lie, never took a life, but surely saved one.
Hallelujah, it's time for you to bring me home."

3. So, as one, survive
Another day and season
Silence, legion. Save your poison.
Silence, legion. Stay out of my way.
