Idiot wind,
Blowing down the backroads heading south,
You're an idiot babe,
It's a wonder that you still know how to breath.

"Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream.
Stronger and harder than a bad girl's dream.
Make a bad one good, make a wrong one right.
Power of love will keep you home at night.

You don't need money, it don't take fame.
Don't need no credit card to ride this train.
It's strong and it's sudden,
it can be cruel sometimes.
But it might just save your life...
That's the power of love."

- The Power Of Love
(C. Hayes / Huey Lewis)
Huey Lewis & The News 1985

Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4 - As/Stevie Wonder

But if you know what life is worth,
You will look for yours on earth - Get Up, Stand Up/Bob Marley

A couple of lyrics from Springsteen are among my favorites.

In "Thunder Road" ,discussing leaving home to start their own life together, he asks the girl:
"My car's parked out back, are you ready to take that long walk, from your front porch to my front seat???"

In "Badlands":
"A poor man wants to be rich
A rich man wants to be king
A king ain't satisfied 'til he owns everything"

I think this is an interesting series of lines from Marillion's album "Misplaced Childhood" and the song is called "Bitter Suite":

She was a wallflower at sixteen
She'll be a wallflower at thirty four
Her mother called her beautiful
Her daddy said, "A whore".

Through these eyes I've seen love and I've seen hate
I've seen the violence and the tears
Through these eyes I got my schoolin' on the streets
I've seen the things in life you don't wanna see
