Friday Song Lyrics

I'm working on a revised 100 Things, but this time, I'm going to put it up as one ginormous post...so for now, you'll have to make do with Friday Song Lyrics.

1) Because for some reason, listening to this song last night, over and over again, I was struck by the many ways it's true in my own life.

Kathy's Song by Simon and Garfunkel

And so you see I have come to doubt
All that I once held as true
I stand alone without beliefs
The only truth I know is you

And as I watch the drops of rain
Weave their weary paths and die
I know that I am like the rain
There but for the grace of you go I

2) Watching Last Kiss and listening to the LIVE version of this (the band not the way it's performed), I realized that when things are right, it's in no way difficult to stay true.

Walk the Line by Johnny Cash

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I walk the line

3) Because I'm trying and trying and trying to find The Chorallaries of MIT version of this song for WG's birthday (a special request...anybody out there in the great state of Massachusets have access to a recording?).

Say Goodbye by Dave Matthews Band

So here we are tonight, you and me together
The storm outside, the fire is bright
And in your eyes I see what's on my mind
You've got me wild, turned around inside

4) Because the Plain White T's are about far more than Hey There Delilah.

Making a Memory by the Plain White T's

You and me
We should be
Making a memory whenever we're together, yeah
Look at me
Can't you see
We were meant to be
Making a memory

5) In respect of the sheer simplicity and beauty of the song, because we can all use a little simplicity and beauty every once in a while.

I Want to Hold Your Hand by the Beatles

Oh yeah, i'll tell you something,
I think you'll understand.
When i'll say that something
I want to hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand.

Oh please, say to me
You'll let me be your man
And please, say to me
You'll let me hold your hand.
Now let me hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand.

I really like this idea. We have recently been listening to Kathy's Song as well - the lyrics are quite striking. It is also interesting to look into who Kathy was to them...she appears in other songs.
