Show a little faith...there's magic in the night!
So very many to choose from but from Backstreets: One soft infested summer me and Terry became friends, trying in vain to breath the fire we was born inCatching rides to the outskirts, tying faith between our teeth, sleeping in that old abandoned beach house and getting wasted in the heat....
I gota find out how it feels I wana no if love is wild I wana know if love is real!!!!
Wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims and strap your hands 'cross my enginesYes please
This one is missing, in my opinion:"The highways jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power driveEverybodys out on the run tonight but there's no place left to hide"
"Fear's a powerful thingIt'll turn your heart black you can trustIt'll take your God filled soulFill it with devils and dust"
Dave was even better with the God have mercy line!
As tough as picking your top 10 favorite songs. Here's one of my faves that wasn't included: "ain't no one leaving' this world buddy without their shirttail dirty or their hands bloody"
So many..but most striking...has to be..."God have mercy on the man...who doubts what he's sure of" Think about that...brutally great!
'And when the promise was broken I was far away from homeSleepin' in the back seat of a borrowed carThunder Road, for the lost lovers and all the fixed gamesThunder Road, for the tires rushing by in the rain'Beautiful, such a sense of complete defeat, and then echoing what some have said above, "From Small Things' is an absolute nugget, a gem of a little song, packed with sharp lyrics'first she took his order, then she took his heart'
Sorry, Mike, Dave Edmunds recorded "From Small Things," but Bruce Springsteen wrote it.
Sorry Frank, Dave Edmunds wrote " From Small Things "
You could do this for days and not come up with a definitive list..................Tonite this fool's halfway to heaven and just a mile outa hell,and I feel like I'm comming home
And your strength is devastating in the face of all these odds.
Some guys they just give up livingAnd start dying little by little, piece by pieceSome guys come home from work and wash upThen go racing in the streets
So many great lyrics. But my one of my favorites was left out.She shot him dead on a sunny Florida road.When they caught her, all she said was she couldn't stand the way he drove.
Great list.Kids flash guitars just like switch blades hustling for the record machine
Not enough space above.Now there's tears on the pillow darling where we slept and you took my heart when you left without your sweet kiss my soul is lost, my friend Now tell me how do I begin again?
