"Oh girl I'm afraid just to give you the bun
My heart's in the need to hold on to my love
But when you get close
I want you to know
I start to get weak and I can't let you go" - Keith Martin - I'll Never Find Someone Like You

Nice thread AndrewII
But there are so many... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Excuse me but can I be you for a while
My dog won't bite if you sit real still
I got the Anti-Christ in the kitchen yellin' at me again
Yeah I can hear that

Been saved again by the garbage truck
I got something to say you know but nothing comes
Yes I know what you think of me you never shut up
Yeah I can hear that

But what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his with her name still on it
Hey but I don't care
Cause sometimes I said sometimes I hear my voice and it's been
silent all these years

Tori Amos "Silent All These Years"

:D LOL @ Croft Woman!!


Καλοκαιρινά ραντεβού πάνω στο σώμα σου
Καλοκαιρινά σ'αγαπώ στην αμμουδιά
Όλο το νησί ένα βότσαλο στα πόδια σου
Ολόκληρη η γη, η δική σου αγκαλιά...


It's a Greek one. I wish I could translate it perfectly :( so that you all could understand its reall meaning... That's ok... (and it's not offensive of course)...

"well I jumped into the river too many times to make it home
I'm out here on my own, drifting all alone
if it does't show give it time
to read between the lines
cause I see the storm was getting closer
and the waves they get so high
seems everything weve ever knowns here
why must it drift away and die"

Hmmm.. I have lots, wish I could choose one...

Scattered seeds, buried lives, mysteries of our disguise revolve
Circumstance will decide
Cause nobody loves me,its true
Not like you do"

"And songs, are never quite the answer
Just a soundtrack to life"

more subtle than something someone contrives, your movements echo that I have seen the real thing...

This whole song is full of good lines.

Somethin' Stupid
Written by Carson Parks

I know I stand in line
Until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go some place to dance
I know that there's a chance
You won't be leaving with me

Then afterwards we drop into
A quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying somethin' stupid like
I love you

I can see it in your eyes
You still despise the same old lines
You heard the night before
And though it's just a line to you
For me it's true
We've never seemed so right before

I practice everyday
To find some clever lines to say
To make the meaning come true
But then I think I'll wait
Until the evening gets late
And I'm alone with you

The time is right
Your perfume fills my head
The stars get red
And oh, the night's so blue
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying somethin' stupid like
I love you

The time is right
Your perfume fills my head
The stars get red
And oh, the night's so blue
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying somethin' stupid like
I love you

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

[Originally recorded by Nancy and Frank Sinatra]

Lucky that my breasts are small and humble
So you don't confuse them with mountains

-from "Whenever, Wherever; Shakira

I think that is just one of the most hilarious lines ever! :D
