    I like that song. It and nothing else comprise the top 1 list of all-time best songs.

    In my shoes a walking sleep
    And my youth I pray to keep
    Heaven send Hell away
    No one sings like you anymore

    "...every new beginning comes from some other beginningís end..." -- Semisonic, from "Closing Time"


    "And now, I'm glad I didn't know
    The way it all would end, the way it all would go.
    Our lives are better left to chance. I could have missed the pain
    But I'd have had to miss the dance." -- Garth Brooks, from "The Dance"


    "Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
    Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
    That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
    Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers" -- Garth Brooks, from Unanswered Prayers


    And it seems to me you lived your life
    Like a candle in the wind
    Never knowing who to cling to
    When the rain set in
    And I would have liked to have known you
    But I was just a kid
    Your candle burned out long before
    Your legend ever did -- Sir Elton John, from Candle In The Wind

    "I shot a man in Reno/ Just to watch him die..."

    Greatest lyric in the history of lyrics. Cash is truly the man.

    "I am the way
    I am the light
    I am the dark inside the night
    I hear your hopes
    I feel your dreams
    And in the darks I hear your screams
    Don't turn away just take my hand
    And when you make your final stand
    I'll be right there
    I'll never leave
    All I ask of you is believe"
    -"Believe" by Savatage, Streets (1991)

    "I don't know where the years have gone
    Memories can only last so long
    Like faded photographs, forgotten songs
    And the things I never knew
    When the skin is thin, the heart shows through
    Please believe me what I tell you is true

    Where's the lights, turn 'em on again
    One more night to believe and then
    Another note for my requiem
    A memory to carry on
    The story's over when the crowds have gone"
    -"When the Crowds Are Gone" by Savatage, Gutter Ballet (1989)

    "As I lay there late at night
    Building castles in the air
    Out of alibis and all those little lies
    And then I look inside
    And pray that I don't care

    I don't care

    I don't care

    Hey there you way out there in the distance"
    -"Sleep" by Savatage, Edge of Thorns (1993)

    "The night is growing dark
    From somewhere deep within
    It shelters like an ark
    And always takes you in

    And the mind goes numb
    'Till it's feeling no pain
    And the soul cries out
    For a handful of rain"
    -"Handful of Rain" by Savatage, Handful of Rain (1994)

    "Take your answers and your promises, believe me I don't care
    I have held on to your words until I found them only air
    What good are your promises if you can always take them back?
    Still, I hang on every word till my hands are bleeding"
    -"One Child" by Savatage, Dead Winter Dead (1995)

    "And all at once the waves were getting higher
    And as they crashed I thought I heard them say
    There'd be a time when men would all be wiser
    When everyone, everyone,
    Yes everyone is
    -"Anymore" by Savatage, The Wake of Magellan (1997)

    What's the reason
    Every tear isn't weighed the same
    Could you have died in vain
    If we have short memories

    And Jesus would you then come down from your cross
    Return every nail and say we are lost

    And in the dark we seek your silent company
    For each hope that arrives and fades from memory
    Still after all this time our loss you won't concede
    For in the dead of night the rumor is
    Your hands they still bleed
    Still bleed
    Still bleed
    Still bleed

    It would seem then
    That somehow you still trust
    You have more faith than us
    Perhaps that is how it should be"

    Scrap Irony, is it just me, or have you not been around these parts much for quite a while?

    I would place your username in the RedsZone Hall of Fame, by the way. It has always been one of my favorites.

    Thanks. Work keeps me from conributing as much as I'd like. (Last year, I taught, coached football, basketball, and sponsored two drama productions. I also took three classes for my master's.)

    This year, I've already cut out football and am probably going to cut basketball, too, so I should have more time for important things like Redszone.

    OK, I'm goin' out on a limb here, but here it is, an excerpt from Warrant's "Cherry Pie":

    "swingin' in the kitchen cause she wanted me to feed her, so I mixed up the batter and she licked the beater"

    I also want to add that as I've grown older, my musical tastes have changed greatly. Now I would never even consider this kind of "poetry" to listen to. When I was 19, I absolutely admired bands like this. Now when I look back I think what????? I wanted to look and act like these clowns.

    Too many to mention. Depends on my mood.

    A few more:

    in a coffee shop in a city
    which is every coffee shop
    in every city
    on a day which is every day
    i pick up a magazine
    which is every magazine
    and read a story then forgot it right away

    they say goldfish have no memory
    i guess their lives are much like mine
    the little plastic castle
    is a surprise every time
    it's hard to say if they are happy
    but they don't seem much to mind


    cuz when i look around
    i think this, this is good enough
    and i try to laugh
    at whatever life brings
    cuz when i look down
    i just miss all the good stuff
    when i look up
    i just trip over things


    guess that push has come to this
    so i guess this must be shove
    but before you throw those stones at me
    tell me what's your house made of
    if you think you know what i'm doing wrong
    you're going to have to get in line


    tell you the truth i prefer the worst of you
    too bad you had to have a better half
    she's not really my type
    but i think you two are forever
    and i hate to say it but you're perfect together

    Re: What are your favorite song lyrics?

    Looking through some photographs I found inside a drawer
    I was taken by a photograph of you
    There were one or two I know you would have liked a little more
    But they didn't show your spirit quite as true

    You were turning 'round to see who was behind you
    And I took your childhood laughter by surprise
    And at the moment that my camera happened to find you
    There was just a trace of sorrow in your eyes

    Fountain of Sorrow - Jackson Browne

    Where the vulture glides descending
    On an asphalt highway bending
    Through libraries and museums, galaxies and stars
    Down the windy halls of friendship
    To the rose clipped by the bullwhip
    The motel of lost companions
    Waits with heated pool and bar.

    Thasher - Neil Young

    You told me once that you were mine alone forever
    And I was yours 'till the end of eternity
    But all our vows are broken now and you will never
    Be the same except in memory.

    Remember me when the candle lights are gleaming
    Remember me at the close of a long, long day
    It would be so sweet when all alone I'm dreaming
    Just to know you still remember me.

    Remember Me - Willie Nelson
