Sticky Lyrics

My search for a decent status message on Gmail got desperate today. Like all troubled netizens do, I headed to Google uncle for an answer. He lead me to this wonderful thread on pinkfloyd.ws that lists the members’ favourite lines from Pink Floyd songs.

Apropos of nothing, this reminded of my collection of favourite lyrics that I have been maintaining for the last few months. Here a re few of them. Some have been my status message on Gmail and / or my ‘lyrics for the moment’ at the end of posts on this blog. All of them from English songs.

People are crazy and times are strange
I am locked in tight
I am out of range
I used to care
But things have changed – Bob Dylan, Things have changed

Endlessly gazing in nocturnal prime
She spoke of her vices and broke the rhyme
But baffled herself with the final line
My promise is made but my heart is thineOpeth, Face of Melinda

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you awayAerosmith, Dream On

So give me a sign before I die
Show me you’ve heard my prayer
Veil of mist, hazy my view
The entrance to Death
Appears – 3rd and the Mortal, Death Hymn

You can checkout any time you like,
But you can never leave! Eagels, Hotel California

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There’s a hunger still unsatisfied – Pink Floyd, High Hopes

She cant remember a time when she felt needed
If love was red then she was colour blind – Savage Garden, To the moon and back

So, what are your favourite lyrics? Put them up if you don’t mind sharing. They could be from any language.

    In any case the status message will be gone when you logoff! So Whatz the point? IMO nothing to become ‘desperate’ for!

    Mine is very simple.

    To be is to do; To do is to be; Do be do be do

    I dunno what the hell it means. Read it somewhere on the net. My mind is as confusing as the line above.

    I liked your earlier one: “If I am smart then I will run away, But I am not so I guess I’ll stay.”.. yeah. you are not smart. 😛

    @Ycee: It is important. I am logged into gmail almost all day.

    @Ekta: I am not an SEO. I do write content but have no experience in writing for serials. 😐

    @Liju: If it reflects your state of mind, then nothing like it!

    @Aravind: Part of the desperation was due to the desire of getting rid of that one.

    @Vandana: Indeed. Google uncle is everywhere. His presence grows all the time.
