Lyrics meme

Seen this in a few places on my flist but mirabehn is the one I'm doing the copy/paste thing from so...


1. Open your MP3 software (Winamp, iTunes, whatever) and set your playlist to shuffle.
2. Record a lyric or two from each song you come to, and post them. I'm only doing 20 because while I have lots of tracks I only have a few artists. *shrug*
3. Those reading this post: see if you can guess what the songs are, and comment with your guesses.

1. To think I might not see those eyes/Makes it so hard not to cry

I just can’t get the hang of hanging on/Everytime I try to grab it the will is gone

3. And it feels like a dirty dream/Like I’m walking to the guillotine

4. Constantly searching to find something new/But what will you find when you think that nothing’s true? - American English, Idelwild - guessed by an anonymous poster

Lie awake drinking late is all that’s left to do/Not a sound but the rain on the pale blue roof

Sleep in peace when day is done/And this old world is a new world/And a bold world/For me

And he must confess/All the impure thoughts of his beautiful temptress

I tried to kill the pain/But only brought more - Tourniquet, Evanescene - guessed by invisionary

9. You look like an angel/Your skin makes me cry - Creep, Radiohead - guessed by Michelle on the BBB

10. Twenty-four little hours/Brought the sun and the flowers/Where there used to be rain - What A Difference A Day Makes, Jamie Cullum - guessed by willowmina

11. The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in/Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin London Calling, The Clash - guessed by velvetwhip

12. You got wings/But you can’t fly/You got so much pain inside - Very Kind, Will Young - guessed by smileawhile

13. We’re so creative, so much more/We’re high above but on the floor - Not An Addict, K's Choice - guessed by ludditerobot

14. Told what to do, miming to a tape/While a team of experts make sure you’re looking great

You drain me dry and make me wonder why I’m even here

I was thinking ‘bout the time, when we were young/Swimming against the tide/Was I blind, ‘cause all I saw/Was the future in your eyes

you don’t have to say, what you did/I already know, I found out from him

I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes/I have to turn my head until my darkness goes - Paint It Black, Rolling Stones - guessed by aaronlisa

19. Never has there been an evening like…/This is what they wanted/Always to feel hunted

I’ve got this feeling/That there’s something that I’ve missed/Don’t you breathe

Edited to add - I'm going to mark the ones people guess off so you can't cheat... *grin*
