We present...

....the really good lyrics we came upon last night...

"Goodbye, dry eyes - I've watched your plane fade off west of the moon,
And it felt so strange to walk away alone...
The hours that were yours are cool like empty rooms,
The thoughts we used to share I now keep alone,
I woke last night and spoke to you, not thinking you were gone,
And it felt so strange to lie awake alone..."

-'No Regrets', Midge Ure

"Lose myself in glossy pages, dull magazines..."
-'Damned Don't Cry', Visage

"On the plaza, we're dancing slowly, lit like photographs..."
-'Plaza', John Foxx

"I fell asleep on your sofa and had a dream about a small child in dungarees who caught his hands in the doors of the Paris metro, Then my face cracked open and you were there you were there dressed in green saying something obscene. But then that's why I came here in the first place, Oh well that and the tea."
-'Acrylic Afternoons', Pulp

"Ain't it a shame that at the top still those soft skin boys can bruise you,
Yes, I fell for a streaker, oh..."

-'California', Rufus Wainwright

"Filmstar, giving it class,
Living it fast, it looks so easy..."

-'Filmstar', Suede

"Miniskirts were in style when she danced down the aisle back in '63,
But it's hard to get by when your arse is the size of a small counTREEEEEE!"

-'National Express', The Divine Comedy

"...envy will hurt itself,
Let yourself be beautiful,
Sparkling, love, flowers and pearls and pretty girls..."

-'The Power Of Love', Frankie Goes To Hollywood

"We're like crystal, we break easy..."
-'Crsytal', New Order

"We're taking sides again;
I just wept, I couldn't understand why you started this again...
And every day you send me more,
It makes it worse, is this a plan of yours to ensure I don't forget?
I'd write and tell you that I've burned them all, but
You never send me your address -
I've kept them, anyway..."

-'Messages', OMD

"She said 'listen I've been telling you, I'm into something cruel,'
He said 'give me what got into you, I don't care what you do...' "

-'Falling', Alison Moyet

"But oh to paint her eyes so red, and her lips so blue,
Carve a legend on her arm, 'Caroline 452',
When they come to call for her, I will be there too -
Observe : Radio Silence
Maintain : Radio Silence"

-'Radio Silence', Thomas Dolby

"We were the boys...but we're not any more...no now we're so mature...now we've got insured..."
-'We Are The Boys', Pulp. LOVE PULP!

"A danish and coffee to take away,
By cab I'm only minutes away
From breakfast at Tiffany's,
A place I feel so much at ease,
The man upstairs is trying to sleep,
He wants to take some photos of me in my birthday suit,
It's driving him through the roof..."

-'Hollywood Girl', Menswe@r

There were more. I have no time.

    So I was just thinking, ugh, I'm too crazy to post another song, why would I even bother anyway, when I was suddenly reminded of a track I had on Now…

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

  • (no subject)

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
