Line(s) of the Day #StopandStare

Stop and Stare single cover

This town is colder now, I think it’s sick of us
It’s time to make our move, I’m shaking off the rust
I’ve got my heart set on anywhere but here
I’m staring down myself, counting up the years.

The opening lines to the song ‘Stop and Stare’ by One Republic from their debut album Dreaming out Loud (2007).

Line(s) of the Day #SomebodythatIusedtoknow

Somebody i used to know art cover

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember.

Taken from the song ‘Somebody I used to know’ by¬†Belgian-Australian singer songwriter Gotye, from his third album Making Mirrors (2011).

Line(s) of the Day #Innuendo

Queen Innuendo

While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand
While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land
While there’s a wind and the stars and the rainbow
Till the mountains crumble into the plain
Oh yes we’ll keep on tryin

The opening lyrics from the album title track ‘Innuendo’ (1991) from the British band Queen. The song is actually longer than the song ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ which was itself six minutes long.

Line(s) of the Day #HowDeepIsYourLove

How Deep is your Love

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again.

The opening lyrics of ‘How Deep is your Love’ by The Bee Gees, from the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever (1977).

Line(s) of the Day #Royals

Royals

I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I’m not proud of my address,
In a torn-up town, no postcode envy

Taken from the song ‘Royals’ from the album Pure Heroine by Lorde

I’m ripping your posters off the wall
I’m moving the boxes into the hall
I stop when I hear a drumbeat call
Must be a sign, it is time

Taken from the song ‘Pull my Heart Away’ from the album Everything is New (2009).
