RE: A few lyrics from a song you may like.
She sends me blue valentines
All the way from Philadelphia
To mark the anniversary
Of someone that I used to be
And it feels just like a warrant
Is out for my arrest
Baby, you got me checkin'
In my rearview mirror
That's why I'm always on the run
That's why I changed my name
And I didn't think you'd ever find me here

To send me blue valentines
Like half-forgotten dreams
Like a pebble in my shoe
As I walk these streets
And the ghost of your memory
Baby, it's the thistle in the kiss
It's the burglar that can break a rose's neck
It's the tattooed broken promise
I gotta hide beneath my sleeve
I'm going to see you every time I turn my back

She sends me blue valentines
Though I try to remain at large
They're insisting that our love
Must have a eulogy
Why do I save all of this madness
Here in the nightstand drawer
There to haunt upon my shoulders
Baby, I know
I'd be luckier to walk around everywhere I go
With this blind and broken heart
That sleeps beneath my lapel

Instead, these blue valentines
To remind me of my cardinal sin
I can never wash the guilt
Or get these bloodstains off my hands
And it takes a lot of whiskey
To make these nightmares go away
And I cut my bleedin' heart out every night
And I'm going to die just a little more on each St. Valentines day
Don't you remember, I promised I would write you
These blue valentines
Blue valentines
Blue valentines

~ Tom Waits

A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels. ~ Albert Einstein

To keep in silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a slut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Though my life was in a rut
Till I thought of what I'd say
And which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom, boom, boom
Hey, he said, grab your things I've come to take you home

"Solsbury Hill" by Peter Gabriel -- But I think the second line is "My friends would think I was a nut."

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

This is how it feels when you take your life back,
This is how it feels when you finally fight back.
When life pushes me I push harder,
What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger!

Not Gonna Die Tonight-Skillet (yeah yeah It's Skillet but I like them.)

A man hears what he wants to hear, and disregards the rest.

Mmm mm mmm mmm....

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: A few lyrics from a song you may like.
I'm singing this borrowed tune
I took from the Rolling Stones
Alone in this empty room
Too wasted to write my own

Neil Young, "Borrowed Tune" (sung to the tune of "Lady Jane")

...from my favorite Neil Young album, Tonight's the Night

RE: A few lyrics from a song you may like.
I started singin' bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry

Them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
And singin' "This'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die"

Happy birthday to you
You live in a zoo
You look like a monkey
And you smell like one too

The Toadies - Jigsaw Girl

Give me your hand and I will hold it forever
On my nightstand in a box with your love letters
I love you dear, and I know we will not be parted
I'll keep you near, scattered around my apartment

RE: A few lyrics from a song you may like.
They say there are strangers who threaten us
In our immigrants and infidels
They say there is strangeness too dangerous
In our theaters and bookstore shelves
That those who know what's best for us
Must rise and save us from ourselves

Quick to judge
Quick to anger
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear walk hand in hand...

I am I said to no one there
No one heard my voice, not even the chair.

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
