Time can come and take away the pain
But I just want my memories to remain
To hear your voice
To see your face
There’s not one moment I’d erase
You are a guest here now
Regina Spektor - How
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Joni Mitchell - River
Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side.
Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side
Last time I saw youHedwig and the Angry Inch - The Origin of Love
We had just split in two.
You were looking at me.
I was looking at you.
You had a way so familiar,
But I could not recognize,
Cause you had blood on your face;
I had blood in my eyes.
But I could swear by your expression
That the pain down in your soul
Was the same as the one down in mine.
That’s the pain,
It cuts a straight line
Down through the heart;
We called it love.
Got no time to for spreadin’ rootsLed Zeppelin - Ramble On
The time has come to be gone
And though our health we drank a thousand times
It’s time to ramble on
Here comes that shit again
I got a Halloween head
Head full of tricks and treats
It leads me through the nighttime streets
Black cats and fallen trees
Under ladders, always walkin’
Salt shaker spills, just throw it over your shoulder, babe.
Ryan Adams, Halloweenhead.
I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all
Joni Mitchell - Both Sides Now
Out here in the fields
I plowed for my meals
I get my back into my living
I don’t need to fight
To prove I’m right
I don’t need to be forgiven
The Who - Baba O’Riley
The guilty undertaker sighs,
The lonesome organ grinder cries,
The silver saxophones say I should refuse you.
The cracked bells and washed-out horns
Blow into my face with scorn,
But it’s not that way,
I wasn’t born to lose you.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
Honey, I want you.
Bob Dylan - I Want You
But I wish there was somethin’ you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talkin’ anyway
But don’t think twice, it’s all right
Bob Dylan - Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right
Quand il pleut sur ParisJuliette Gréco - Sous le Ciel de Paris
C’est qu’il est malheureux
Quand il est trop jaloux
De ses millions d’amants
Saturday sun came early one morningNick Drake - Saturday Sun
In a sky so clear and blue
Saturday sun came without warning
So no-one knew what to do.
Saturday sun brought people and faces
That didn’t seem much in their day
But when I remember those people and places
They were really too good in their way.
In their way
In their way
Saturday sun won’t come and see me today.
Think about stories with reason and rhyme
Circling through your brain.
And think about people in their season and time
Returning again and again
And Saturday’s sun has turned to Sunday’s rain.
So Sunday sat in the Saturday sun
And wept for a day gone by.
I, I can rememberThe Magnetic Fields - Heroes (Bowie Cover)
Standing by the wall
And the guns shot above our heads
And we kissed as though nothing could fall
I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rainJames Taylor - Fire and Rain
I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I’d see you again.
I remember that time you told me, you said,
”Love is touching souls”
Surely you touched mine
‘Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time
Joni Mitchell - A Case of You
