    When I was in high school I used to collect song lyrics in a notebook, sometimes the whole song, sometimes bits and pieces. Lately I have been hearing songs and lines that I remember having cared about. I think my all time favorite is from Carol King:

    You've got to get up every morning
    With a smile on your face,
    And show the world all the love in your heart.
    Then people are gonna treat you better,
    You're gonna find, yes you will,
    That you are beautiful as you feel.

    Do you have a favorite?

    Right know I can't think of any, but at 2:00 AM when I should be sleeping, they keep running though my mind! LOL But then only part of them and I lay awake trying to remember the rest of it! ;)

    I love music and have kept lists of song lyrics, titles and artists I love over the years. It amazes me how people can put so much meaning into a few short lines!

    One of my all time favorites:

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace...


    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one


    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world...


    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    I want to go back...to the islands...
    Where the shrimp boats tie up...to the pilings...
    Give me oysters and beer...
    For dinner every day of the year...
    And I'll feel fine...I'll feel fine...

    Jimmy Buffett

    I love ANY island - especially tropical :)

    I have a few:

    "I don't care what consequence it brings,
    I have been a fool for lesser things"

    Billy Joel talking about love in his song The Longest Time.

    I have many many favorite songs. I think my all time favorite is "Jesus Loves Me." I found myself singing it one day when I was eight years old. I was feeling extremely sad and just started singing it and felt better. It still works today and I am many years older. I sing either Annie's song or Jiminy Cricket's song when I am feeling stressed. They put a smile on my face everytime. I wrote about "Our" favorite love songs on another post. Forever and Last Date.

    You are so beautiful to me
    Can't you see?
    You're everything I hoped for
    You're everything I need...
    You are so beautiful to me.

    It was playing a lot when my son was born. Whenever I hear it, it brings tears to my eyes. Also...

    The lyrics to What a Wonderful World by the great Louis Armstrong.
    And I think to myself...... what a wonderful world!

    This is one of those forgotten Elton Tunes but is one of my favorites .

    Music by Elton John
    Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
    From the soundtrack Friends

    I hope the day will be a lighter highway
    For friends are found on every road
    Can you ever think of any better way
    For the lost and weary travellers to go

    Making friends for the world to see
    Let the people know you got what you need
    With a friend at hand you will see the light
    If your friends are there then everything's all right

    It seems to me a crime that we should age
    These fragile times should never slip us by
    A time you never can or shall erase
    As friends together watch their childhood fly

    Making friends for the world to see
    Let the people know you got what you need
    With a friend at hand you will see the light
    If your friends are there then everything's all right

    Scowlkat, this has to be one of the best songs every written. The theme is a lot like my favorites :)
    John Lennon was such a visionary. I still miss him :(

    "Signs, Signs, Everywhere's a Sign
    Blocking the scenery and breaking my mind.
    Do this, don't do that. Can't you read the sign?"

    kept going through my head today. I've been on the road way too much--LOL.

    Allison Krauss "When you say nothing at all"

    It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
    Without saying a word you can light up the dark
    Try as I may I could never explain
    What I hear when you don't say a thing


    Alan Jackson "Remember When"

    Remember when I was young so were you
    time stood still love was all we knew
    You were the first, so was I
    made love and then you cried
    Remember when
    Remember when we vowed the vows walked the walk
    Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
    lived and learned, life threw curves
    There was joy, there was hurt
    Remember when

    Enya "Only Time"


    :cry: :cry: :D :D :D Allison krauss played at our wedding
    and Alan Jacksons' song makes me cry everytime I hear it.
