Line(s) of the Day #Time

the dark side of the moon album cover

Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rain,
And you are young and life is long, and there is time to kill today,
And then one day you find, the years have got behind you,
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

Taken from the song Time from the seminal album The Dark Side of the Moon (1974) by hugely influential alternative rock group Pink Floyd. Along with its iconic cover, the album was a worldwide smash, is regularly voted one of the best ever and has sold over 45 million copies. It is one of my favourite Pink Floyd songs, along with Comfortably Numb.

Line(s) of the Day #Disintegration

The Cure Pictures of You

I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they’re real
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures
Are all I can feel

Taken from the song Pictures of You by The Cure, from the album Disintegration (1989). The album has long been one of my favourites.

Line(s) of the Day #NothingCompares2U

Noothing Compares 2U

I could put my arms around every boy I see
But they’d only remind me of you

Taken from the song Nothing Compares 2U by Irish singer Sinead O’Connor from her second album I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got (1990). Originally written by Prince for his side project The Family, the song later achieved huge success and topped both sides of the Atlantic.

Line(s) of the Day #TheMission

The Mission

Silver and gold and it’s growing cold
Autumn leaves lay as thick as thieves.
Shivers down your spine chill you to the bone
‘Cos the mandolin wind is the melody that turns your heart to stone.

The opening lines of the song ‘Butterfly on a Wheel’ by the Mission, from their album Carved in Sand (1990)

Line(s) of the Day

The Scientist

Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh, let’s go back to the start
Running in circles, coming up tails
Heads only science apart

Taken from the song’ The Scientist by Coldplay from the album ‘A Rush of Blood to the Head’ (2002)

Line(s) of the Day

Secret Garden

You’ve gone a million miles
How far did you get?
To that place where you can’t remember
And you can’t forget
