The Lyric Game!

The rules are simple! I will kick us off with a song. The following poster will post lyrics with one word in common with my song. And so on.

For example:

My post:
Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
Over the fields we go
Laughing all the way!

Your post:
Well the weather outside is frightful
And inside it’s so delightful
So as long as we’ve no place to go
Let it snow Let it snow Let it snow!

With snow being the common word. Bold the word that is common to the previous post.

Creativity is a plus for this game. Do try to stay away from common words like “is”. Add the artist and title to your post so that we can look up artists we haven’t heard of and whatnot.

And…that’s it. Remember, you’re posting lyrics with one word in common with the –previous- post and bolding that common word.

So let’s begin!

One by one, the guests arrive
The guests are coming through
The open-hearted many
The broken-hearted few
And no one knows where the night is going
And no one knows why the wine is flowing
Oh love I need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
Oh . . . I need you now
And those who dance, begin to dance
Those who weep begin
And "Welcome, welcome" cries a voice
"Let all my guests come in."
And no one knows where the night is going ...

Naughty lil song... Kiwi by Maroon 5...


You’re such a flirt, I know you hurt
And so do I, I empathize
I see you out, you never cared
A conversation that we never shared

But it’s so strange, it’s something new
Amazing feelings that I have for you
I close my eyes when I’m alone
Wonder what it’d be like to make you moan

I wanna give you something better
Than anything you’ve ever had
A stronger and a faster lover
The world, it disappears so fast

Sweet kiwi
Your juices dripping down my chin
So please, let me
Don’t stop it before it begins

So give it up, and don’t pretend
And spread your arms and legs across the bed
And when you shake, you won’t regret
The things I whisper in your ear
(What?) I said:

I wanna give you something better
(You wanna give me something better)
Than anything you’ve ever had
(Than anything I’ve ever had)
A stronger and a faster lover
(A stronger and a faster lover)
The world, it disappears so fast
(It disappears so fast)

Sweet kiwi
Your juices dripping down my chin
So please, let me
Don’t stop it before it begins

I can’t wait to take you home
Fingers through your hair
Kisses on your back
Scratch me with your nails

Save me from myself
Show me how to care
Get everything out
Dripping everywhere
Lipstick smeared all over your face
How much longer must we wait?
Don’t think that I can wait

Sweet kiwi
Your juices dripping down my chin
So please, let me
Don’t stop it before it begins (hey, yeh)

Sweet kiwi (wanna give you something better than this)
Your juices dripping down my chin (hey, yeh)
So please, let me (wanna give you something better than this)
Don’t stop it before it begins

Don’t stop it before it begins
Don’t stop it before it begins
Don’t stop it before it begins
Don’t stop it before it begins

You're Gonna Go Far Kid - Offspring
Show me how to lie
You’re getting better all the time
And turning all against the one
Is an art that’s hard to teach
Another clever word
Sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you get back into line
A mob jumps to their feet

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man, he never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you steal away
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You’re gonna go far, kid

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives

Slowly out of line
And drifting closer in your sights
So play it out I’m wide awake
It’s a scene about me
There’s something in your way
And now someone is gonna pay
And if you can’t get what you want
Well it’s all because of me

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man, I never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you’ll lead the way
Show the light of day
Nice work you did
You’re gonna go far, kid
Trust, deceived!

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives

Now dance, fucker, dance
He never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

So dance, fucker, dance
I never had a chance
It was really only you

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives

Clever alibis
Lord of the flies
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives

Road to Joy - Bright Eyes (did a whole phrase this time! Anyone else want to try that?)

The sun came up with no conclusion
Flowers sleeping in their beds
This city's cemetery's humming
I’m wide-awake, it’s morning

I have my drugs, I have my woman
They keep away my loneliness
My parents they have their religion
But sleep in separate houses

I read the body count out of the paper
And now it’s written all over my face
No one ever plans to sleep out in the gutter
Sometimes that’s just the most comfortable place

So I'm drinkin', breathin', writin', singin'
Every day I'm on the clock
My mind races with all my longings
But can't keep up with what I got

And so I hope I dont sound too ungrateful
What history gave modern man
A telephone to talk to strangers
Machine guns and a camera lens

So when you're asked to fight a war thats over nothin'
Its best to join the side thats gonna win
No one's sure how all of this got started
But we're gonna make 'em God damn certain how its gonna end
Oh yeah we will, oh yeah we will!

Well I could have been a famous singer
If I had some one else's voice
But failures always sounded better
Let's fuck it up boys, make some noise!

The sun came up with no conclusions
Flowers sleepin' in their beds
The city cemetary's hummin'
I'm wide awake, its mornin'!

The Man with the Woman Head - Captain Beefheart & Frank Zappa

Are you with me on this, people?

The man with the woman head...
Polynesian wallpaper made the face stand out -
a mixture of Oriental and early vaudeville jazz poofter
forming a hard, beetle-like, triangular chin,
much like a praying mantis.

Smoky razor-cut, low on the ear neck profile.
The face the color of a nicotine-stained hand.
Dark circles collected under the wrinkled, folded eyes,
map-like from too much turquoise eyepaint.

He showed his old tongue through ill-fitting wooden teeth,
stained from too much opium, chipped from the years.
The feet: brown wrinkles above straw loafers.
A piece of coconut in a pink seashell caught the tongue y
and knotted into thin white strings.

Charcoal grey Eisenhower jacket zipped into a loaded green ascot.
A coil of ashes collected on the white-on-yellow daks.

Four slender bones with rings and nails endured
the weight of a hard fast black rubber cigarette holder.
I could just make out Ace as he carried the tray and mouthed,
"You cheap son of a bitch" as a straw fell out of a Coke, cartwheeled into the gutter.

So this was a drive-in restaurant in Hollywood...
So this was a drive-in restaurant in Hollywood...
So this was a drive-in restaurant in Hollywood.

Woman King by Iron and Wine

Blackbird claw, raven wing
Under the red sunlight
Long clothesline, two shirtsleeves
Waving as we go by

Hundred years, hundred more
Someday we may see
A woman king
Wristwatch time
Slowin' as she goes to sleep

Black horsefly, lemonade
Jar on the red anthill
Garden worm, cigarette
Ash on the windowsill

Hundred years, hundred more
Someday we may see
A woman king
Sword in hand
Swing at some evil and bleed

Black hoof mare, broken leg
Eye on the shotgun shell
Age old dog, hornet nest
Built in the big church bell

Hundred years, hundred more
Someday we may see
A woman king
Bloodshot eye
Thumb down and starting to weep

Pink Cigarette - Mr. Bungle

Hush me , touch me
Perfume, the wind and the leaves
Hush me , touch me
The burns, the holes in the sheets
I'm hoping the smoke
Hides the shame I've got on my face
Cognac and broken glass
All these years I've been your ashtray

I found a pink cigarette
On the bed the day that you left
And how can I forget that your lips were there
Your kiss goes everywhere, touches everything but me

Hush me , touch me
Champagne, your hair in the breeze
Hush me , touch me
Lipstick, a slap on my cheek
Your eyes cried at last
Told me everything I was afraid to ask
Now I'm dressed in white
And you've burned me for the last time

I found a pink cigarette
On the bed the day that you left
And how can I forget that your lips were there
Your kiss goes everywhere, touches everything but me

You'll find a note and you'll see my silhouette...
There's just 5 hours left until you find me dead
There's just 4 hours left until you find me dead
There's just 3 hours left until you find me dead
There's just 2 hours left until you find me dead
There's 1 more hour and then you will find me dead
There's just.....................

When I Get Home You're So Dead - MayDay Parade

The words are coming
I feel terrible
Is it typical for us to act like this?
Am I just another scene from a movie
That you've seen one hundred times?
Cause baby, you weren't the first, or the last, or the worst
And I've got to fill the blanks in the past with a verse
We could sit around and cry
But frankly, you're not worth it anymore

So say hello to all the boys
At the top of this table that you're under
Lipstick lullabies
This is sorry for the last time
And baby, I understand how you're making new friends
This is how you get by
The moral this time is
Girls make boys cry
And I...

On any other day I would shoot the boy
But your simple toy had caused a scene like this
Leave him hanging on the walls
Just a picture in the hall
Like a hundred more
(Like a hundred more)
Consider this as a gift as you taste him on your lips
And he's making you scream with his hands on your hips
I hope he's leaving you empty, baby
This is just a fix for such a simple little whore

So say hello to all the boys
At the top of this table that you're under
Lipstick lullabies
This is sorry for the last time
And baby, I understand how you're making new friends
This is how you get by
The moral this time is
Girls make boys cry

And your name remains the same
All that has changed is this pretty face
So pull the trigger
It never gets closer
You want to start over
But never start over
Pull the trigger
It never gets closer
You want to start over
But never start over

So say hello to all the boys
At the top of this table that you're under
Lipstick lullabies
This is sorry for the last time
And baby, I understand how you're making new friends
This is how you get by
The moral this time is
Girls make boys cry
And I...

Say hello, say hello
Lipstick lullabies
This is sorry for the last time
And baby, I understand how you're making new friends
This is how you get by
The moral this time is
Girls make boys cry

Blue Movie - Sneaker Pimps

(I had a little trouble with the lyrics, I think these are close)

Get on that gospel train for my lord is coming soon

So you had me going to any dive that taste just left
In a week of soloing, getting off on electro-flesh
All the boys and all the girls, making out and taking turns
The sound was going down, I can see how Jesus wept

Get on the gospel train for my lord has come too soon
Watching movies, true blue movies
Get on that gospel train for my lord has come too soon
Watching movies, true blue movies

Exposure on a tv screen, technicolor rainbow kiss
Bruises on a solarplex, baby faced the biting lips
All the boys and all the girls, cutting ice with instant thrills
Insects on incest friends, heaven dust that judas spilled

Get on that gospel train for my lord has come too soon
Watching movies, true blue movies
Get on the gospel train for my lord has come too soon
Watching movies, true blue movies

So whatever happened to love talk and polite remarks
Mind willing and her body weak, she's a star in a galaxy of real go-fars
I'm the boy on all the girls
Taking off their bible belts soiled doves on self-destruct
And I can see how Jesus felt (fell?)

Sia - Sunday


For those who've slept
For those who've kept
Themselves jacked up
How Jesus wept
Sunday
Sunday

For those in need
For those who speed
For those who try to slow their minds with weed
Sunday
Sunday

For those who wake
With a blind headache
Who must be still
Who will sit and wait
For sunday, to be monday


(start chorus-thing)

Yeah, it will be ok
Do nothing today
Give yourself a break
Let your imagination run away

(end chorus-thing)


For those with guilt
For those who wilt
Under pressure
No tears over spilt milk

("Sunday" x 6)

(chorus-thing x 2)

"Sunday Morning" by No Doubt

Sappy pathetic little me
That was the girl I used to be
You had me on my knees
I'd trade you places any day
I'd never thought you could be that way
But you looked like me on Sunday
You came in with the breeze
On Sunday Morning
You sure have changed since yesterday
Without any warning

I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you well... so well

You're trying my shoes on for a change
They look so good but fit so strange
Out of fashion so I can complain

You came in with the breeze
On Sunday Morning
You sure have changed since yesterday
Without any warning

I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you well... so well

I know who I am, but who are you?
You're not looking like you used to
You're on the other side of the mirror
So nothing's looking quite as clear

Thank you, for turning on the light
Thank you, now you're the parasite
I didn't think you had it in you
And now, you're looking like I used to!

You came in with the breeze
On Sunday Morning
You sure have changed since yesterday
Without any warning
And you want me badly
You cannot have me

I thought I knew you
I've got a new view
I thought I knew you well...oh well

Philosopher Kings - You Don't Love Me

We don't make love in the afternoon.
On the stairs, in the restroom.
When you're here you're never in the mood.
You don't love me like you used to do.

I don't know cause I've been wrong before,
but somethings gone behind the bedroom door.
It's in your kiss it's in the way you move.
You don't love me like you used to do.

Give all I can til I can't give no more.
I'm still the same boy that you knew before.
I'm still the first you gave your body to.
You don't love me like you used to do.

Nah.Nah.Nahhhh.Nah.Nah.Nahhh.Nah Nah.Nah.
Nah.Nah.Nahhhh.Nah.Nah.Nahhh.Nah Nah.Nah.
Nah.Nah.Nahhhh.Nah.Nah.Nahhh.Nah Nah.Nah.
You don't love me like you used to do.

When was it ,baby, you turned away.
Your blood ran so cold.
Lately, I can't sleep at night without you girl I'd
be nothing at all.

Do all I can to make each day seem new.
With every hour I feel I'm losing you.
Keep your excuses, keep your pity too.
You don't love me like you used to do.

We don't act the way that lovers should
When people ask I say that it's all good.
You don't love me like you used to.
I don't love you like I used to do.

This isn't my usual genre of music but the video caught my attention
