Yes! It’s that day of the week again where I tell you about my Top Ten.
Today being my Top Ten Song Lyrics.
I’m crazy about music, as I am about books and writing, because part of music is composition (of the melody and of wordings) And music is the poetry of the soul.
So here it goes! (Taking my best friend Tris‘ advice I’m gonna start with number 10.)
10. “No, all girl just don’t wanna have fun. We take it fast, take it slow, we can come undone
We’re so much more than a magazine, can’t you see?
It’s a fight with society.
I’ve been living in movie, so make believe, tired of the script – I was losing me.
I’m rewriting happy endings. I realize, I take the pen, I control the line.”
– Megan and Liz (A Girl’s Life)
9. “For those days that felt like a mistake
For those times when love’s what you hate
Somehow .. We’ll keep marching on.
For those nights that I couldn’t be there
It’s makes it harder to know, to know that we’ll keep moving on.”
– The Pacific (We’re marching on)
8. “I know that I’ve got issues
But you’re pretty messed up too.
Either way I’ve found out.. I’m nothing without you.”
– Kelly Clarkson (My life would suck without you)
7. “Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why
It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time”
– Green Day (Good Riddance)
6. “It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live for ever
I just wanna live while I’m alive.”
– Bon Jovi (It’s my life)
5. “I don’t wanna be anything other than what I’ve been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and I’ve peace of mind
I’m tired of looking ’round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Or who I’m supposed to be
I don’t wanna be anything other than me.”
– Gavin DeGraw (I don’t wanna be)
5. “A penny for my thoughts, oh, no, I’ll sell ’em for a dollar
They’re worth so much more after I’m a goner
And maybe then you’ll hear the words I been singin’
Funny when you’re dead how people start listenin’.”
– The Band Perry (If I die young)
4. “If I could say what I wanna say .. I’d say I wanna blow you.. Away
Be with you every night… Am I squeezing you too tight?
If I could see what I wanna see.. I would see you go down .. On one knee .. Marry me today.
Guess I’m wishing my life away.. With these things I’ll never say.”
– Avril Lavigne (Things I’ll never say)
3. “Happy is the heart that still feels pain
Darkness drains and light will come again
Swing open your chest and let it in
Just let the love, love, love begin.”
– Ingrid Michaelson (Everybody)
2. “Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life.”
– The Fray (How to save a life)
1. “This is my last glance that will soon be memory.”
– Maroon 5 (Daylight)
Phewww. That was hard. Seriously! There were so many songs and so many lovely lyrics. But I chose those which really touched me!
So, hope you like it!
Does anyone have any ideas of what I should do next Tuesday? Lemme know.
