Another lyric game! Even though the last one is still unfinished


17 jui. 2008, 18h08m

Winamp on shuffle, first lines of the song this time. Let's see what kind of weird, off-the-wall stuff it comes up with, you know the drill

1. She grabs her magazines / She packs her things and she goes

2. I'm a deep sea diver with my fins. / And underneath your current, I do swim. Grizzly Bear - Deep Sea Diver

3. Instrumental >_<

3! Another suburban family morning / Grandmother screaming at the wall / We have to shout above the din of our rice crispies The Police - Synchronicity II

4. wtf, another instrumental Fix the Sky a Little - 65daysofstatic

4!! It's important that you run and it's important that you rise / It's important that you set yourself upon a new disguise

5. There's a song that's inside of my soul / It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again
Switchfoot - Only Hope

6. You'll take my life but I'll take yours too / You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
Iron Maiden - The Trooper

7. Midnight, our sons and daughters / Were cut down and taken from us / Hear their heartbeat

8. (Not first lyrics, too easy) And dance around the room to accordion keys / With the needle that sings in your heart / Catching signals that sound in the dark
Neutral Milk Hotel - Two-Headed Boy

9. Your prettiness is seeping through / Out from the dress I took from you, so pretty / And my emptiness is swollen shut always / Always a wretch I have become

10. (First lyrics were too lame, so these are mildly better) But every single second that you / Hold me in your arms / You build me up you raise me up / You kill me with your charms

11. I can see a storm awaiting / Quietly anticipating / Don't deny it, no debating / A lie for a lie

12. Too obscure to find lyrics for, nor can I figure out the first set, so you get a freebie: Call It Sane - Faraquet

13. Well into the desert you must go / so into the desert we go / call it a ritual / call it whatever you will Wolf Parade - Call It a Ritual

14. I wish I would've met you / Now it's a little late / What you could've taught me / I could have saved some face
Filter - Hey Man Nice Shot

15. Too alarming now to talk about / Take your pictures down and shake it out

16. Well billy rapped all night about his suicide / How he kick it in the head when he was twenty-five

17. Virgil Caine is the name, and I served on the Danville train, / Til Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again. / In the winter of '65, We were hungry, just barely alive.

18. Between the darkness on the street / And the houses filling up with light / Between the stillness in my heart / And the roar of the approaching night

19. Waiting on an angel / One to carry me home / Hope you come to see me soon / Cause I don' t want to go alone

20. ah yes, through-composed film scores: Journey to the Island - John Williams

20. I'm going to chicago that's the last thing my baby said / I'm packing up my bags i'm gonna leave this town right away / I'm gonna find that girl if i have to hitch hike around the world

21. On the street where you live / The girls talk about their social lives / They're made of lipstick, plastic and paint

22. In fields where nothing grew but weeds, / I found a flower at my feet, / Bending there in my direction
Rise Against - Good Left Undone

23. In the town where I was born, / Lived a man who sailed the sea The Beatles - Yellow Submarine

24. The city has sex with itself, I suppose
As the concrete collides, the scenery grows

Bright Eyes - The City Has Sex

25. You're such a strange girl / I think you come from another world / You're such a strange girl / I really don't understand a word

26. I believe in clean breaks / I keep the old troubles away / But you're making sure / I was lying when I said / I can leave this behind
Dashboard Confessional - Clean Breaks

27. Skip town. slow down / push it to the east coast / Step down turn around / push it to the west

28. I've been waiting for a good day / I've been holding back long enough / I've been hurting to tell you some things

29. To the bottom dear I had to fall / but you really caught me / you really caught me, dear

30. Oh, Sleeping Bear! / Ran to the top and got scared / Of what I could see Sufjan Stevens - Sleeping Bear, Sault Saint Marie

31. Some plans were made and rice was thrown / A house was built, a baby born / How time can move both fast and slow / Amazes me

32. I ask myself should I put my finger to the left, no / I ask myself should I put my finger to the right, no / I say it really doesn't matter where I put my finger

33. I don't feel like I have this much instrumental stuff. Jazz this time Here's That Rainy Day - Toots Thielemans

33. Starts with one I can’t feel / It’s all in your mind anyway / I can’t heal / make me feel this way

34. I swear I tried again / You’re never visible on the weekdays / When I need you to / Do what you can’t afford to do

35. Blistering Pree, all smiling and swollen / Makes babies to breathe / With their hearts hanging open all over the sheets Neutral Milk Hotel - A Baby For Pree

36. So long ago, I don't remember when / That's when they say I lost my only friend / Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
The Wallflowers - One Headlight

37. She homed with thieves, kicked up dirty leaves / She was a maniac, no one's heart attack

38. I feel unhappy, I feel so sad, / I lost the best friend that I ever had / She was my woman, I loved her so

39. I was getting ready to be a threat / I was getting set for my accidental suicide / the kind where no one dies, no one looks too surprised

40. Here we go to another candle I know / all the girls there playing on a jelly roll / time to take a ride
Sonic Youth - Dirty Boots

41. With your feet in the air and your head on the ground / Try this trick and spin it / Your head will collapse / When there's nothing in it
The Pixies - Where Is My Mind?

42. You gotta be good, you gotta be strong / You gotta be two thousand places at once

43. What the world needs now is love sweet love / It's the only thing that theres just too little of Jackie DeShannon - What The World Needs Now Is Love

44. Streetlights outside my window / Surrender to the dawn / A million reasons I should sleep / But I can't think of one

45. I wanted to be with you alone / And talk about the weather / But traditions I can trace against the child in your face

46. Is this a sign of our demise? / Or is it just the opposite? / I love you and I miss you / What else is there to say?

47. I'm having trouble trying to sleep / I'm counting sheep but running out Green Day - Brain Stew

48. There's a gap in between / there's a gap where we meet / where I end and you begin

49. I close my eyes / Only for a moment and the moment's gone

50. I've got my things; I'm good to go / You met me at the terminal / Just one more plane ride, and it's done

    oo, excellent, I was worried nobody would happen to come across this journal with the new layout. Carey Mercer is a bit difficult to decipher, I know I wouldn't be able to pick it out either but I do love them to death

    43. What the World Needs Now is Love - I would have said Burt Bacharach, I guess it's a cover?

  • downinahole55

    Out of pure curiosity, I just looked it up and the song was written by Burt Bacharach but the first recorded version was by Jackie DeShannon
