Meme Monday

Alright, guys! Being the music lover I am, I decided to go with another music theme today. My family always laughs at me because when I want you to love a song as much as I do, I'm constantly saying, "Ok, be quiet and listen to these lyrics..." (getting my family to be quiet and listen to an entire song is quite a task). I LOVE lyrics and generally pick my favorite songs based on them. :) So today, we're going to share favorite song lyrics. :)

A few of my faves:

1.) Most Romantic: "Everytime I think of you, I always catch my breath."

2.) Most Frequently True: "It's no surprise to me I am my own worst enemy, 'cause every now and then, I kick the living s*** out of me."

3.) Most Useful: "You can't find the answers 'til you learn to question; you won't appear stupid, just ask for direction. You're insecure and it clouds your perception, so stop and listen and learn a lesson in love without condition."

What are some of your favorites?

Here are some of my favorite lines that came to me:
Someday when the kids are older we will teach them to fly. You and me together can do anything, baby.

These are the times to remember, cause they will not last forever.

Happy is what happens when your dreams come true.

Thanks for that. You made lunch at my desk more entertaining!

A couple of Better Than Ezra lyrics for you . . .

"A Hollywood flat where we'd laugh about our fortunes/
Where we held jobs in this bar down at 3rd and San Vicente/
And Ramen Noodles at 4:30 in the morning/
Where we barely could survive, I was never more alive" (Under You)

"Well I wish I could kill you,
savor the sight/
Get into my car, drive into the night/
Then lie as I scream to the heavens above/
That I was the last one you ever loved" (Porcelain)

"Now, retreating from the light/
I love it when we fight/
It makes me think at least you still care" (Live Again)

And know that if I knew
All of the answers I would
Not hold them from you'd
Know all the things that i'd know
We told each other, there is no other way)-No other way, Jack Johnson

You're going to miss this
You're going to want this back
You're going to wish these days
Hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're going to miss this (Trace Adkins)

Love's the only house big enough for all the pain in the world (Martina McBride)

Don't worry, be happy

Ooooh, Josh - Do you remember how much I LOVE the song Porcelain? (And how horrified I was when I finally listened to the words and realized he wants to kill her 'cause she dumped him? haha)

Leslie, I DO remember you loving that song. That's one reason I posted it (the other being that it's still my favorite BTE song).

By the way - saw them for the first time ever in October, and they were incredible. The greatest rock band ever assembled!!!

Another thing I'll always remember about you is how "wierd" your spelling was (especially for an English teacher!)

I STILL think of you every single time I spell "weird". It's your mocking of that in my head that helps me remember the correct way. Geez, the abuse!!! :)
