Lyric Quiz

I love that Quiz! So here it goes, and:

NO CHEATING! Or I'll do this to you..

Step 1: Put your media player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play.
Step 3: Bold out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own!

1. Mary calls from far away
sure there is another
Walks the floor cause she can't settle down

2. Two-dollar color pictures from a photo booth
Dirty, stepped-on, lying out on the floor of their room

Drive All Over Town

3. Don't be scared of anything at all
Everything we have is all we need


4. Everybody wants a piece of some easy enterprise,
can't this world cut your face and carry the news that you've got a gift to be given?

5. There's a war inside of me
Do I cause new heartbreak to write a new broken song

You Wouldn't Like Me

6. Every step takes a beat of your heart
Through a city that's falling apart

Love Steals Us From Loneliness

7. Hey, calling all imaginary friends!
Today, don't want no one to tell me how it ends

Imaginary Friends

8. Oh great intentions
I've got the best of interventions

Come On, Feel The Illinoise!

9. First we drink our coffee now,
and talk about nothing in particular.

10. everything is right
we don't need to force it


11. Today I saw my father, standing in the graveyard, looking very somber, looking for his mom.
Everything Has Changed

12. And under the boughs unbowed
All clothed in a snowy shroud

The Crane Wife 3

13. Strange winds are blowing me down this way.
There's no prize in sight but the pain in my feet but I won't remember after tonight.

14. So you've got your own little story to tell
Some girls they ask to put them on your knees

15. I felt my vocal chords weakening
I felt my concave thoughts

16. Among the afflictions,
With which I've been marked,

Then Go

17. I know your body's like a cloud
Floating around the softer side of things you know

18. For those who've slept
For those who've kept
Themselves jacked up
How Jesus wept


19. ...
The Only Moment We Were Alone

20. Well i'd like to think i'm the mess you'd wear with pride.
Like some empty dress on the bed you've layed out for tonight.

I Go to the Barn Because I Like The

21. We're gonna make it to the church on time
We're gonna make it to the church on time

Church On Time

22. This southern cross is full of holes
Frozen and over

23. Corporate or Colonial
The movement is unstoppable

Clairaudients (Kill or Be Killed)

24. Deathtraps are difficult to bypass,
when your running right through the night

25. Oh my distorted smile will tighten its grip
Now somebody is asking when you will disappear

    When you have a look at the bands, you can guess which band 19 is. People that like that band will know immediately :P So I guess you never listened to them, which is very bad, cause I like them :)
