      "I love you if you smoke,
      I love you if you drink,
      I love you for the words
        you stuck inside my throat,
      I love you for your sin,
        and the way you turned away..
      I hear you in the darkness,
      And i will hold you till the day.."

    For reasons that may or may not ring a bell with others on here, I love the line from the Jekyll and Hyde song, "This Is the Moment":  "This is the moment, when all I've done - when all the dreaming, scheming, and screaming become one."   smile  Besides the meaning, it like the use of words there.

    And she bangs, she bangs
    Oh baby
    When she moves, she moves
    I go crazy

    like a bee
    Like every girl in history
    She bangs, she bangs

    Lady E, so weird that you brought up that song; because - honest - I was actually considering the words, "..lifted me up when I couldn't reach" and "you were my voice when I couldn't speak".  Then I went with the line I did.   Apparently, the words of that song hit more people than I realize.   (Some of us may have to overlook who sang that song because the words are what they are.  smile  ).

    I loved this old school song back in the 80's.

    There's a hero,
    If you look inside your heart,
    You don't have to be afraid of what you are,
    There's an answer,
    If you reach into your soul,
    And the sorrow that you know will melt away.

    And then a hero comes along,
    With the strenght to carry on,
    And you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive,
    So when you feel like hope is gone,
    Look inside you and be strong,
    And you'll finally see the truth that a hero lies in you.

    Violin:  Rockapella

    And he kept a vow from years before,
    "I'll never play the violin."
    He met a girl with rosy cheeks,
    She laughed when he would tell a joke
    But she left him for another man,
    A man who played the violin.
    With a broken heart he sells his clothes
    And books aboard a leaky ship
    To find some peace in a foreign land
    And learn to play the violin.
    But before you know it the ship goes down
    And fish are swimming in his mouth
    But he promises the next go 'round
    He'll learn to play the violin.

    The galaxy song by Monty Python ... actually the whole song, but here's the best bit:

    "...
    The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
    In all of the directions it can whizz
    As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
    Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.
    So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
    How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
    And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
    'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth. "

    Dust in the wind by kansas

    I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
    All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
    Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind.
    Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
    All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

    Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind

    [Now] Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
    It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy.

    Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind
    Dust in the wind, everything is dust in the wind.

        Was listening to Hotel California earlier in someone's car when they asked me, "Is this song a ghost story?"

        There is mention of spirits and coming to a door.  Or is all this merely metaphorical, California standing in for some purgatory place?

        Maybe you could enlighten me?
