How to Be dead by Snow Patrol.
Please don't go crazy, if I tell you the truth
No you don't know what happened
And you never will if
You don't listen to me while I talk to the wall
This blanket is freezing, it's been out in the hall
Where you've had me for hours
Till I'm sure what I want
But darling I want the same thing that I wanted before
So sweetheart tell me what's up I won't stop no way
Please keep your hands down
And stop raising your voice
It's hardly what I'd be doing if you gave me a choice
It's a simple suggestion can you give me sometime
So just say yes or no
Why can't you shoulder the blame
Coz both my shoulders are heavy
From the weight of us both
You're a big boy now so let's not talk about growth
You've not heard a single word I have said...
Oh, my God
Please take it easy it can't all be my fault
I haven't made half the mistakes
That you've listed so far
Oh baby let me explain something
It's all down to drugs
At least I remember taking them and not a lot else
It seems I've stepped over lines
You've drawn again and again
But if the ecstacy's in the wit is definitely out
Dr. Jekyll is wrestling Hyde for my pride
It's a really good song.
btw, I got the lyrics from AZlyrics.com
First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

"...Einstein, disguised as Robin Hood
With his memories in a trunk
Passed this way an hour ago
With his friend, a jealous monk
He looked so immaculately frightful
As he bummed a cigarette
Then he went off sniffing drainpipes
And reciting the alphabet
Now you would not think to look at him
But he was famous long ago
For playing the electric violin
On Desolation Row..."
Dylan - Desolation Row (c) 1965
This one goes through my head fairly often, and when I saw the title of the thread, back it came. Must have something to do with my fondness for mangos.

When she woke up late
in the morning light
and the day had just begun
She opened up her eyes and thought
Oh, what a morning
It's not a day for work
it's a day for catching tan
just lying on the beach and having fun
She's going to get you
"All that she wants" - Ace of Base
I hadn't listened to that song in a long while, but I happened to find the MP3 in one of the network computers just yesterday...
Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

A song called Going to Pasalacqua by Green Day.
I toss and turn all night
Thinking of your ways of affection
But to find that it's not different at all
I throw away my past mistakes
And contemplate my future
that's when I say...
What the hey!?!?
Would I last forever?
You and I together, hand and hand
We run away (far away)
I'm in for nasty weather
But I'll take whatever you can
give that comes my way (far away)

Here in the land that Abraham was promised to receive we listen to you catechize from your pulpit overseas. You mourn the proofs of our barbarity. Dry your eyes, oh Pharisee. We both speak a settler’s cant. We both read from the same old played out scripts and hum familiar tunes, broadcast on fixed frequencies, stuck in locking grooves. We both profess noble intent as we civilize human impediments. So if your hands are clean then noblesse oblige that you wipe that “who me?” look off of your face and concede our designs separated by nothing more than place and time. Different scenes, same crimes. Pray, let him who’s without sin cast the first statues of the former rogues turned folk heroes that your forefathers hung. Don’t lecture me about plundered soil while you loaf upon your father’s spoils. We want nothing more than what you already have: a comforting set of exculpatory “facts” like, say, the myth of an empty land and a conquest so complete we can pull these tanks from our streets and hand the loose ends over to bureaucrats and become just like you – lounging carefree in your cafes, absolved from sin and human grenades. Entre nous, how did your desert bloom?
Ha ha ha! That reminds me of when Mr. Harlot and I were in university and I was living in residence. We were sitting in my room with the window open one warm night and some guys walked by down on the pathway singing at the top of their lungs:
"I WEAR MY SUNGLASSES AT NIGHT
SO I CAN, SO I CAN...... "
"See at night?"
And then they bust into hysterical laughter, and so did Mr. Harlot and I.

There are places I'll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all
