Step 1: Put your music player (iTunes, etc) on random.
Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 30 songs that play.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from.
Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly

1. i saw the sun go down, and now it's coming up
somewhere in the time between
i was bitten, must have been the devil

2. i never was there
was there when it counts
i get my way
you're so like me

3. what would you think if i sang out of tune,
would you stand up and walk out on me?
lend me your ears and i’ll sing you a song,
and i’ll try not to sing out of key.

4. mama said "boy if i ever
catch you round here again,
you ain't never gonna have nobody else-
not a woman or a man."

5. i am smellin' like the rose
that somebody gave me on my birthday deathbed.

6. i'm a psychosomatic sister
running around without a leash.
you can take me home
but i will never be your girl

7. i'm sure i'm not being rude
but it's just your attitude
that's tearing me apart.

8. my thighs have been involved in many accidents
and now i can't get insured
and i don't need to be lured by you

9. maybe i should drop you at your door.
or leave tonight and vanish up the shore.
anywhere but here.

10. there's a destination a little up the road
from the habitations and the towns we know
a place we saw the lights turn low
jig-saw jazz and the get-fresh flow

11. i was lyin' in a burned out basement with the full moon in my eyes.
i was hopin' for replacement when the sun burst through the sky.
there was a band playin' in my head and i felt like getting high.

12. so this is what it's like living in limbo
first i'm high then i'm solo

13. and I always catch the back of your head in the crowd.
please don't turn around
it's never you and it ruins those memories

14. the place i saw was far beneath the surface of the sea.
my sight was poor but i was sure the sirens sang their songs for me.

15. dig if u will the picture
of u and i engaged in a kiss
the sweat of your body covers me
can u my darling,
can u picture this?

16. forgot my woman, lost my friends,
things I'd done and where i've been
sleep in sweat the mirrors cold
see my face it's growin' old

17. i gave you 'geek love' but you didn't want to read it.
i said you have to cause it says it all.
it's about the things that weave people together,
and the finer points of surgery.

18. are you just playing, making passes?
well, my heart could use some glasses.

19. we come from the land of the ice and snow,
from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.

20. you had the best
but you gave her up
cause dependency might interrupt

21. if i don't make it known that
i've loved you all along
just like sunny days that
we ignore because
we're all dumb and jaded

22. i raise a toast to all our saviors,
each so badly behaved.
it's too bad that their world
is the one that they saved.

23. meet me in outerspace
i will hold you close, if you're afraid of heights

24. wait -
they don't love you like i love you.

25. god is the sweat running down his back
the water soaked her blonde hair black

26. and the sky was made of amethyst
and all the stars looked just like little fish

27. my sister came over, she was out of her mind.
she said, "jesus has a twin who don't know nothing about sin."

28. breathe out
so i can breathe you in.

29. so pure, so rare
to witness such an earthly goddess
that i've lost my self control

30. feel the rhythm with your hands
steal the rhythm while you can.

wow. i like songs with cool lyrics. that was really fun. seriously, i will send a cookie to whoever gets the most right. i got lots of cookies for my birthday.
