Guess the song!

As part of  Josie’s Writing Workshop this week (in which the prompt was to write something based upon either a song or lyrics) I have twisted it slightly into a ‘guess the song’ quiz. I might do a ‘proper’ entry too, haven’t decided yet.

The lyrics I’ve chosen are all ones that touch me in some way. As it is often remarked in the twitter world that I have cheesy taste in music, I guess you’ll all find it really easy?!

One last thing – don’t cheat!

At the behest of @himupnorth, on the ground that it’s too hard, I have made it easier by adding an extra 2 lines to each set of lyrics – except no.10 as that one is obvious.


You know I’d never ask you to change
If perfect is what you’re searching for, then just stay the same
So, don’t even bother asking if you look ok
You know I’ll say


Maybe it’s intuition
But some things you just don’t question
Like in your eyes I see my future in an instant
And there it goes I think I’ve found my best friend


Life is not tried it is merely survived
If you’re standing outside the fire
There’s this love that is burning
Deep in my soul


One sentimental moment in your arms
Is like a shooting star right through my heart
It’s always a rainy day without you
I’m a prisoner of love inside you


And the sun poured in like butterscotch
And stuck to all my senses
Oh won’t you stay
We’ll put on the day


Oh what else can I do
But try to give her more than she got from you
And when she wakes up suddenly and she says you name to me
I’ll just hope its force of habit and not need


All of the beautiful colors are very very meaningful
Yeah, well you know, gray is my favorite color
I felt so symbolic yesterday
If I knew Picasso I would buy myself a gray guitar and play


And love is blind and that I knew when,
My heart was blinded by you
I’ve kissed your lips and held your head.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed


I know where you hide alone in your car
Know all of the things that make you who you are
I know that goodbye means nothing at all
Comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls


You scumbag you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy christmas your arse I pray god it’s our last
