  • Mood:

take it I'm on late breaks then...

we have a new start in the department, a new graduate trainee actually, and this is his second week. He's not been trained to cover the desk (although I'm more than sure he could handle it if needs be) and it's break time. Every other supervisor has left the office so I guess that means I'm on late breaks so that GT doesn't end up having to cover the enquiry desk then. (There is one other member of staff in here as well but it's not unknown for there to be a queue at the desk).


since I'm bored and slept in a little this morning so don't have my laptop with me, I'm going to do a lyrics contest thingy. Rather than spam you mercilously with three posts in quick succession, I'll edit the lyrics in here when I finally do get to go on break...

So here is the contents of my mp3 player (it's only 44 songs, don't panic!). A point each for getting the song and artist. Some are obscure, some artists have more than one song on here...

1. There is a darkness deep in you, a frightening magic I cling to
2. Sometimes I swear it feels like this worry is my only friend
3. The grey coats of the infantry, victims looking for sympathy
4. Well who gives a damn about the profits of Tesco?
5. The very things that make you live are killing you
6. It’s hard to argue when you won’t stop making sense
7. Those three words are said too much, they’re not enough
8. Now I understand why words mean so much to you, they’ll never be about you
9. Losing coins calling next of kin
10. I have no regrets, if it all ends now I’m set
11. Somebody cried out he ain’t here, killed ourselves a woman, that’s all
12. Falling gently on the cushion you can come and sing to me
13. Turn on the boob tube, I’m in the mood to obey
14. Blood on her skin dripping with sin
15. One step too far is not far enough away from here
16. Ineloquence and anger are all we have
17. We’ll fight them on the beaches, yes we’ll fill ‘em full of lead
18. Something tells me this is bringing me down
19. Is it too late to remind you how we were
20. The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love
21. My head is getting tired, darkness looms
22. The laughter penetrates my silence as drunken men find flaws in science
23. She knows the human heart and how to read the stars
24. Your breakfast will get cold, I really have to go
25. For once I want to be the car crash, not always just the traffic jam
26. The man on the wireless cries again, it’s over
27. She couldn’t stand the massacre game, so she dyed her hair, adopted another name
28. She used to have a carefree mind of her own
29. His little heart beat so fast that I am ashamed to be running away
30. Days of speed and slow time Mondays. Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
31. With a careful hand he wiped at the tears that ran down my face
32. The great night out that will continue till the end of the week
33. You’d never take a walk with me, would you?
34. Flesh and bone by the telephone
35. This is where we wake in the ditch, and this is where our bodies sing no more
36. Now there’s majesty in a burned out caravan
37. And if I had you, all the stars wouldn’t fall from the sky and the moon wouldn’t start to cry
38. I caught myself in the mirror and couldn’t help but see how beautiful I look with her standing next to me
39. Rule number seven says you can’t touch the women but they can grab whatever they want to
40. I pray for your innocence in a war you’ll never win
41. Every shirt I’ve worn, the collar’s been blue
42. I saw the rain-dirty valley, you saw Brigadoon
43. Look at all this blood we’ve spilt I can’t deal with all this fundamental guilt
44. Hanging out their old love letters on the line to dry

And that's yer lot... Comments are screened and I'll put the answers (and winners) up on Wednesday night.
