    I am doing a project and am looking for quotes to add to it.

    Examples:

    Politicians will become honest.

    Lindsay Lohan will stop getting arrested.

    Cable companies will stop robbing people blind.

    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will stop being an a$$hole.


    You get the idea.big_smile

        Don't wish it away
        Don't look at it like it's forever
        Between you and me
        I could honestly say
        That things can only get better

        And while I'm away
        Dust out the demons inside
        And it won't be long
        Before you and me run
        To the place in our hearts
        Where we hide

        And I guess that's why
        They call it the blues
        Time on my hands
        Could be time spent with you
        Laughing like children
        Living like lovers
        Rolling like thunder under the covers
        And I guess that's why
        They call it the blues

        Just stare into space
        Picture my face in your hands
        Live for each second
        Without hesitation
        And never forget I'm your man

        Without me girl
        Cry in the night if it helps
        But more than ever I simply love you
        More than I love life itself

        And I guess that's why
        They call it the blues
        Time on my hands
        Could be time spent with you
        Laughing like children
        Living like lovers
        Rolling like thunder under the covers
        And I guess that's why
        They call it the blues

        Wait on me girl
        Cry in the night if it helps
        But more than ever I simply love you
        More than I love life itself

        And I guess that's why
        They call it the blues
        Time on my hands
        Could be time spent with you
        Laughing like children
        Living like lovers
        Rolling like thunder under the covers
        And I guess that's why
        They call it the blues

        To fade.
