On my way home this evening, I was listening to my iPhone, and the random song selection from iTunes.  I laughed the whole way home (oh, and I sang at the top of my lungs too!)… I couldn’t make this playlist up if I tried.  I’ve chosen some “appropriate” lyrics from those songs. and I’ll leave it at that….

Bruce Springsteen – Dancing In The Dark

Message keeps getting clearer
radio’s on and I’m moving ’round the place
I check my look in the mirror
I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
Man I ain’t getting nowhere
I’m just living in a dump like this
There’s something happening somewhere
baby I just know that there is
You can’t start a fire
you can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire
even if we’re just dancing in the dark
You sit around getting older
there’s a joke here somewhere and it’s on me
I’ll shake this world off my shoulders

James – Laid

This bed is on fire
With passionate love
The neighbours complain about the noises above
But she only comes when she’s on top

Kelly Clarkson – Breakaway

I’d just stare out my window
Dreaming of what could be
And if I’d end up happy
Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Rob Thomas – Ever The Same

Just let me hold you while you’re falling apart
Just let me hold you and we’ll both fall down
Fall on me tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same
Call on me
I’ll be there for you and you’ll be there for me

Ashlee Simpson – Pieces of Me

It seems like I can finally rest my head on something real
I like the way that feels
Ohhhhh
It’s as if you know me better than I ever knew myself
I love how you can tell
All the pieces, pieces, pieces of me
All the pieces, pieces, pieces of me
I am moody, messy
I get restless, and it’s senseless
How you never seem to care
When I’m angry, you listen
Make me happy it’s your mission
And you won’t stop til I’m there
Fall… Sometimes I fall so fast
When I hit that bottom
Crash, you’re all I have
How do you know everything I’m about to say?
Am I that obvious?
And if it’s written on my face…
I hope it never goes away… yeah

The Clarks – Sun Don’t Shine

Addiction is gradual
Love is a chemical
God is habitual
Pain is desirable
