Song Lyric Survey (Stolen from Lauren!)

Normal questions, harder answers.  Only answer in song lyrics.

Current relationship status:  "I've never been so alone, And I've never been so alive." (Third Eye Blind, Motorcycle Driveby)

Your first love:  "Had to find some higher ground, had some fear to get around.  You can't say what you don't know, later on won't work no more."  (Tom Petty, Square One) 

Do you believe in love at first sight? "I don't know if I can do that."  (Luke Bryan, I Don't Know If I Can Do That)

Your most recent ex:  "I keep letting you back in, how can I explain myself.  As painful as this thing has been, I just can be with no one else.  See I know what we've got to do, you let go, and I'll let go too."  (Ex Factor, Lauryn Hill)

Your best friend:  "And I won't be far from where you are if ever you should call, you meant more to me than anyone I've ever loved at all.  But you taught me how to trust myself, and so I say to you, this is what I have to do."  (Missy Higgins, Where I Stood)

Sex:  "You keep me in a daydream, keep me going strong."  (Superstitious, Stevie Wonder) 

Marriage:  "I don't care for your fairytales.  You're so worried 'bout the maiden though you know she's only waiting on the next best thing."  (Fairytale, Sara Barellies)

Life:  "If you think time will change your ways, don't wait too long."  (Madeleine Peyroux, Don't Wait Too Long)

Death:  "When someone said count your blessings now, I guess I just didn't know how...I'll keep you locked in my head until we meet again...and I won't forget you."  (Pink, Who Knew)

Your regrets:  "Now I've made some mistakes, I've lost some friends a long the way.  But I don't carry it because it's made me a better chick...I may not be what I'm supposed to, but I can tell you right now I ain't what I used to be."  (Mary J. Blige, Reflections)

High School:  "She used to tie her hair up in ribbons and bows, sign her letters with X's and O's."  (She's An American Girl, Trisha Yearwood) 

Your worst enemy:  "There are people in your life who have come and gone, they let you down and they hurt your pride.  You better put it all behind you baby; life goes on.  You keep carrying that anger, it will eat you up inside."  (Don Henley, Heart of the Matter)

Authority:  "I opened my mouth and I heard myself, it can get pretty lonely when you show yourself, guess I could have made it easier on myself but I, I could never follow."  (Dixie Chicks, Long Way Around)

Politics:  Listen to all of Ray Lemontagne's "How Come."  But in particular:  "And justice can be a thief, and freedom can be an empty cup from which everybody wanna drink." 

Your religious stand/views:  "I hope that everybody can find a little flame.  Me, I say my prayers and then light myself on fire, walk out on a wire once again...." (Counting Crows, Goodnight Elizabeth)

Monday:  "Just another manic Monday..."  (The Bangles, Manic Monday.  Cliche and unoriginal, but soooo true.  Plus, this one was one of my favorite songs as a child and I would put this tape on repeat!)

Tuesday:  "The first sight of morning is grey and alarming, It's so disappointing the day has come so soon."  (Brandi Carlile, Late Morning Lullaby).  I HATE Tuesdays.

Wednesday:  "I'm halfway there...living on a prayer" (yup, that's some old school Bon Jovi for you!)  Did I mention I'm not a fan of the mid-week?  This is getting painfully unoriginal...

Thursday: "But what you've done here is put yourself between a bullet and a target, and it won't be long before you're pulling yourself away..."  (Bullet and A Target, Citizen Cope)

Friday:  "Heads California, Tails Carolinas, somewhere greener, somewhere warmer."  (Heads California, JoDee Messina)  Damn, but Fridays just make me want to hop in Gretta-Jetta and head...anywhere.  

Saturday:  OBVIOUSLY--"Worked hard all week, got a little jingle on a Tennessee Saturday night."  (Alabama, Dixieland Delight)  

Sunday:  "Although though now, most of my days are spent alone."  (Amos Lee, Arms of a Woman).  Loneliest day of the week.

Coffee:  "If the way you drank your coffee was the way you looked at me, I could take both my hands of the TV."  (Lisa Loeb, Lisa Listen)

Tea:  "And I'm weeping for honey and milk..." (Warm Whispers, Missy Higgins)

Alcohol:  "Bottle of red, bottle of white, ever kind of mood you're in tonight."  (Scenes from an Italian Restaurant, Billy Joel)

Cigarettes:  "I said no, no, no."  (Rehab, Amy Winehouse)

Lunch meat:  Hmm....don't eat it. 

Food:  "Love love love love love, Looove love love!!!"  (Bottle It Up, Sarah Barellies).

Color:  "When you have awoken, from all the dreams broken, come and dance with me, dance with, into the colors..."  (Ben Harper, Into the Colors)

Anything you'd like to add:  "She is young and she still has her confidence, and it's not too  late to tie up those loose ends." (Loose Ends, Rosie Thomas)

This would be hard to do, it requires a lot of though. LOL. Maybe I will give it a go.

I think this might be my distraction from papers later on today.
