What Lyric Sums You Up?

Friday, August 10, 2012
So I was thinking, what lyric sums you up? I have one that sums me up in my younger days, when I was on the make and trying to impress girls. It was a manipulative pose on my part. From Jewel's Foolish Games:
You're always the mysterious one with
Dark eyes and careless hair,
You were fashionably sensitive
But too cool to care.
What lyric sums you up? Let us know in the comments.


  1. Asking only workman's wages
    I come looking for a job
    But I get no offers


    I have squandered my resistance
    For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
    All lies and jests


    I was no more than a boy
    In the company of strangers.....
    In the quiet of the railway station, runnin' scared

  2. At different times....growing up....young adult....

    Well she was an American girl
    Raised on promises
    She couldn't help thinkin'
    That there was a little more to life somewhere else
    After all it was a great big world
    With lots of places to run to
    And if she had to die tryin'
    She had one little promise she was gonna keep

    Oh yeah, all right
    Take it easy, baby
    Make it last all night
    She was an American girl

    Well it was kinda cold that night
    She stood alone on her balcony
    Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by
    Out on 441 like waves crashin' on the beach
    And for one desperate moment
    There he crept back in her memory
    God it's so painful when something that's so close
    Is still so far out of reach
