"How's the weather?
Weather or not, we're together.
Together we'll see it much better.
I love you, I love you forever.
You know where I can be found.

How can I be sure?
In a world that's constantly changing.
How can I be sure?
I'll be sure with you."

- The Rascals
(Felix Cavaliere / Eddie Brigati)

Ms. 90 says:
Why should I listen to those, who think that I should move on
Maybe what they see as drama, I see more as art
- What Is Love/Vivian Green

My eyes are green
Cause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend

"That's all I wanted,
but sometimes love can be mistaken for a crime.
That's all I wanted,
just to see my baby's blue eyes shine.

If you are the desert, I'll be the sea.
If you ever hunger, hunger for me.
Whatever you ask for, that's what I'll be.
So when you remember ones who have lied,
who said that they cared but then laughed as you cried,
Beautiful darling...don't think of me, because all I ever in your eyes.
And love can't lie.
Greet me with the eyes of a child.
Heaven is a kiss and a smile.
Just hold on, hold on...I won't let you go."

A couple of my fave lyrics from my favorite band, They Might Be Giants:

"No one in the world ever gets what they want, and that is beautiful;
Everybody dies frustrated and sad, and that is beautiful"
~ "Don't Let's Start" (1986)

"Money's all broke, and food's going hungry;
If it wasn't for disappointment, I wouldn't have any appointments"
~ "Snowball in Hell" (1988)

"An Indian Summer, Carrie was all over the floor.
She was a wet net winner and rarely ever left the store.
She'd sing and dance all night, and wrong all the right out of me."

"The tricks of the night keeping me in a daze.
Open the bar and I pull down my shades.
Glance in the mirror, back into bed.
Get up at the same time to party again.

I got the sunlight blues.
I can't find my shoes.
The only thing on TV is the good morning news."

The Union Pacific is due for a visit,
And believe me, I got a plan.
But the plan's no good without the train,
And when you need a train it never comes.

She came onto him like a slow movin' cold front
His beer was warmer than the look in her eyes
She sat on a stool, he said, "What do you want?"
She said, "Give me a love that don't freeze up inside."
~~John Hiatt, "Icy Blue Heart"

"You ain't that good" is what you said down to the letter.
But you like the way I hold the microphone.
Sometimes I'm good but when I'm bad I'm even better.
Don't give me no lip, I got enough of my own."

- Aerosmith

"I've never met you, yet never doubt dear.
I can't forget you, I've thought you out dear.
I love your profile and I know the way you kiss.
Just the thing I miss, on a night like this.

If dreams are made of imagination,
I'm not afraid of my own creation.
With all my heart my heart is here for you take.
Why should I quake? I'm not awake..."

That's a great song. However, the actual lyric is:
