Lyric Speak

Who me? I. Feet don't fail me now, take me to the finish line. 
Tonight, I'm walking on air. 
Sarah's friend, she lost her mind, she left him and made it look sexy now. 
Oh, yea, feel it baby? I do to. 

Come to me now, lay your hands over me, even if it's a lie, say it will be alright and I shall believe.
Don't tell me you love me, don't tell me you love me, don't tell me, I don't want to know. 
You were the first thing that I thought of when I thought I drank you off my mind. 
I wanna leave you, I wanna lose us, I wanna give up, but I wont. 

I know a girl, she puts the color inside of my world. 
What's your favorite color baby!?! 
It's our party we can do what we want to. 

They call me the breeze, I keep blowing down the road. 
Lovin' you is killing me.
If you ever leave me baby, leave some morphin at my door. 

Elvis is my daddy, Marilyn's my mother, Jesus is my bestest friend. 
Sister Christian oh the time has come, and you know that your the only one to say, Ok. 
You can't afford no ring, you cant afford no ring, I shouldn't be wearing white and you can't afford no ring! 

Just one night all we got, just one night all we got. 
I woke up and called this morning, the tone of your voice was a warning that you don't care for me anymore.
I'm in my penthouse half naked, I made this meal for you naked, so where the hell you at? 

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone, I hear you call my name and it feels like home. 
Though the treasures of this life may fade, your love endures forever. 
What are you looking at?! 
It's been a mystery, but still they try to see why something good an hurt so bad.

Double D, big full breast on my baby.
We belong, we belong to the light.
Every body's talkin' all this stuff about me, why don't they just let me live.

Summer after high school when we first met.
I'm not lovin you the way I wanted to.
This ain't no disco, ain't no country club either, this is LA. 

Baby sneezes, mommy pleases, daddy breezes in.
The first time ever I saw your face.
Listen as the wind blows from across the great divide, voices trapped in yearning, memories trapped in time.

When your day is long and the night, the night is yours alone.
They told him, don't you ever come around here.
Your love is like a tidal wave spinning over my head drowning me in your promises that are left unsaid.

One of these nights, one of these crazy old nights.
You think I'm pretty without any make up on.
Dirt road in the twilight, woods so cool and dark, up ahead pail neon, somewhere a dog barks.

When you give it up for gone but your still digging in the mire.
Friday night you and your boys went out to eat.
Another night slowly closes in and it feels so lonely.

Play house, put my favorite record on.  
It's been a hard days night and I been working like a dog.



This poem is made up of the first sentence of songs on my iTunes. I thought it would be a fun creative writing experiment,  I put on my earphones, hit shuffle on iTunes, and typed the first line of each song only. I allowed myself to skip songs if the lyrics didn't start up right off the bat or I didn't know them well enough to type quickly. I think it turned out pretty sweet.
