I cry out to God
Seeking only His decision;
Gabriel stands and confirms
I've created my own prison

To be really silly AND old, I still remember this song as one of the best for women-Nancy Sinatra
"These boots are made for walkin
and thats' just what they'll do
one of these days these boots
are gonna walk all over you"

Great thread Janet! Could be bigger than Ben Hur though.  Just a couple to start off with, sorry, Couldn't pick a favorite verse though!

Darling Be Home Soon
(John Sebastian)


Come and talk of all the things we did today
Hear and laugh about our funny little ways
While we have a few minutes to breathe
And I know that it's time you must leave

So darlin' be home soon (Darlin' be home soon)
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darlin' be home soon (Darlin' be home soon)
It's not just these few hours but I've been waitin' since I toddled
For the great relief of havin' you to talk to

And now a quarter of my life is almost passed
I think I've come to see myself at last
And I see the time I spent confused
Was the time I spent without you
And I feel myself in bloom

But go and beat your crazy head against the sky
Try and see beyond the houses in your eyes
It's okay to shoot the moon

For the great relief of havin' you to talk to
      


IRIS
(The Goo Goo Dolls)

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
'Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

(break and solo)

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

O.K....many a year back I spent countless nights drinking and listening to Joe Cocker singing this one.  Great lyrics that can still make me cry.

"The Moon's a Harsh Mistress" by Jimmy Webb

See her as she flies, golden sails across the sky.
Close enough to touch, but careful if you try.
Though she looks as warm as gold,
the moon's a harsh mistress.
The moon can be so cold.

Once the sun did shine, and, Lord, it felt so fine.
The moon, a phantom rose
through the darkness and the pine,
and then the darkness fell.
The moon's a harsh mistress, it's hard to love her well.

I fell out of her eyes. I fell out of her heart.
I fell down on my face. Yes, I did,
and I tripped and I missed my star,
and I fell and fell alone.
The moon's a harsh mistress.
The sky is made of stone.
The moon's a harsh mistress.
She's hard to call your own.

"What if"
by Creed

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
what if eye for an eye?


And "higher"
when dreaming Im guided through another world
Time and tme agian
At sunrise i fight to stay asleep
cause i dont want to leave the comfort of this place..

"At nude weddings everybody can see the best man!" "I have a glass house with no windows" "save a horse, ride a cowboy!!!"

They said someday you'll find- all who love are blind. Oh, when your heart is on fire- you must realize smoke gets in your eyes. The Platters," Smoke Gets in Your Eyes"

You wouldn't worry about what people thought about you if you knew how seldom they did.

"Why you gotta be so mean to me?
Why you gotta drag me down just to make me see?
You know I dont listen good and I'm always in need.
Why you gotta be so mean to me?!" -Tonic

"Even though it seems I have everything
I don't wanna be a lonely fool
All of the women
All the expensive cars
All of the money don't amount to you
I can make believe I have everything
But I can't pretend that I don't see
That without you girl my life is incomplete"

I love this but I don't know who sings it.

Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time
Don't you think it's time.

Dee..that song is by the Judds  
Love can Build A bridge - Judds          


I'd gladly walk across the desert
with no shoes upon my feet                            
To share with you the last bite
of bread I had to eat
I would swim out to save you
In your sea of broken dreams
When all your hopes are sinking
Let me show you what love means

(chorus)Love can build a Bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time
Don't you think it's time

I would whisper love so loudly
Every heart would understand
That love and only love
Can join the tribes of man

I would give my heart's desires
So that you might see
The first step is to realize
That it all begins with you and me


When we stand together
It's our finest hour
We can do Anything, Anything
If we keep believing in the power
Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time
Don't you think it's time
