Kell's List of Lyrics

I'm having an intense desire to send y'all a new list - so here are my some of my favorite lines of some great songs (in no particular order):

1) In the place my wonder comes from - there, you will find me (Bruce Cockburn, Love Song)

2) Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays... (Bruce Springsteen, Thunder Road)

3) Redemption comes like sunrise to wake you from your sleep - for the Night won't last forever (Charlie Peacock - The Night Won't Last Forever)

4) I am the 4th of July - I'm throwing you a fire in the sky - You could go blind in my light - but you were looking for an orchid, and I will always be a dandelion...(Antje Duvekot - Dandelion)

5) I watch this woman in a tight sequined lizard dress - Tosses her scarlet hair like a sly caress... She got midnight voice like some beckoning saint - She got something special but you she ain't - See how I miss you (Bruce Cockburn - See How I Miss You)

6) All the diamonds in the world that mean anything to me - are conjured up by wind and sunlight sparkling on the sea...
(Bruce Cockburn - All the Diamonds in The World)

7) I guess I should have known by the way she parked her car sideways that it wouldn't last (Prince - Little Red Corvette)

8) Sittin' here wishing on the cement floor - Just wishing that I had something you wore..." (Pixies - Cactus)

9) I wear my shadows where they're harder to see - I guess that means I'm travelling toward the light (Bruce Cockburn - Birmingham Shadows)

10) You wave your hand and they scatter like crows - you know they've nothing that will ever capture your heart... They are just thorns without the rose - be careful of them in the dark (Tom Waits - Downtown Train)

11) It's colder than a well digger's ass (Tom Waits - I just put this in here for Fran)

12) Go on up to the mountain of mercy - to the crimson perpetual tide. Kneel down on the shore, be thirsty no more - go under and be purified. (The Choir -Beautiful Scandalous Night)

13) I'm so in love with you it's humbling - have mercy - have mercy on me" (Jan Krist - Mercy)

14) Of all my demon spirits I need you the most - I'm in love with your ghost (Indigo Girls - Ghost)

15) Love is not a victory march - it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah (I've been corrected. I said Jeff Buckley - but it's really Leonard Cohen. Thanks! - Hallelujah)

16) Let us be lovers - we'll marry our fortunes together. I've got some real estate here in my bag! (Simon & Garfunkel - America)

    "If dreams were lightening and thunder desire- this old house would've burned down a long time ago." Keb Mo- Make Me and Angel

    I loved your post. A couple of those were some of my favorites.

    In response to your comments: I'm STRESSED OUT but I'm okay. My dad is fine but my mom is a mess. He's the one that wanted a divorce but my mom didn't want to stay in the house so he stayed. Gabe is very sweet and supportive. We're just trying to float through day to day for now and help them out. I'm starting to even out but I was a basket case for a couple of weeks and I keep getting shingles which I'm prone to when I'm stressed. Very frustrating.

    On the flip side: I'm really happy that everything is going well for you guys and I'm am finding the married life splendid myself. We should all go on a cruise. :)
