List: Lyrics That Have Struck Me Lately

  • she remembers how fearless it feels to take off with the wind at her heels
  • my love I am the speed of sound
  • bring your renegade heart home to me
  • your rails have always outrun mine
  • defiant to the end we hear the call
  • there’s a smell here of gravel and cigarettes lit, when the match made them sweet, when the engine turned over and beat up our street… Oh that was a day to remember
  • it’s do or die, no taking sides anymore
  • they’re gonna rip up your heads, your aspirations to shreds, another cog in the murder machine
  • we only do it for the scars and stories
  • no one dies upon a kiss, and only fools believe in bliss
  • well, you’re where you should be all the time, and when you’re not you’re with some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend
  • I don’t care what you think as long as it’s about me; the best of us can find happiness in misery
  • you, aniseptically clean, and me like a broken machine
  • cigarrette smiles, 45 miles to the swimming pool–the liquor store sings a love song in my ear as we drive by
  • let us ride, let us ride home again with a story to tell
  • an answering machine that only speaks the truth, the inclination to climb up on the roof
  • our bags are packed so we can leave tonight for the war
  • let’s hotwire a cadillac, take it to hell and back
  • every Judas once loved a Jesus
  • they’re gonna clean up your looks with all the lies in the books
  • you, hard shiny and cold, and me I’ve been feeling so old
  • let the guitar scream like a fascist
  • don’t give in, don’t give up, but give thanks for the glorious fight
  • everyone has a song, has a song
  • god is great and god is good, but he’s also made of wood
  • candy lips telling jokes in the back seat of your car
  • I’ve really been on a bender and it shows, so why don’t you blow me one kiss before she goes?
  • sailing out into this empty ocean in a bottle
  • a kiss and I will surrender–the sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead
  • bye, bye, beautiful–don’t bother to write
  • we’re not the least afraid of the coming storm, because we have the sound of sunshine to keep us warm
  • free love on the streets, but in the alley it ain’t that cheap now
  • the mollusks, they have won
  • babe I know you’re sweet bird youth and you’ll fly home
