1. i've got my theories, and you've got your doubts...
Exact Science

2. well find a way regardless
to make some sense out of this mess
well, it's a test, but i believe
a kiss is all we need


3. now time should have put this behind us
some things i won't soon forget
bride and bridle are too close in a man's mind
and i know you think my sentence was too light.
you, you weren't true.
but i can't blame a woman who changes, three thousand, six hudred, and fifty odd days i waited.
time, i did my time.
now i long since quit feeling my hands.

4. you can get it wrong and still you think that it's alright.
We Can Work It Out

5. we work and we worry
this old world's in such a hurry
so many things we just don't see.
some people are cryin', some people stop tryin',
and i was slippin' away, you came a pulled me through.
i wanna stay in the land of the living with you

6. father mckenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
no one was saved.

Eleanor Rigby

7. the life that you've always wanted a thousand miles away
like no man's like an architect
like moving in one place
we can live forever
we can fade away.

On The Campaign Trail

8. good thing there's no mercy rule in love cause i would long be beat.
touchdown turnaround

9. and history books forgot about us and the bible didn't mention us.

10. if i could only visit the places that you hide.

11. i hit the ground and i'm downtown
the street's alive there's people round.
wonder how i did it all before.
you know, i've walked away from more...
i'm ten feet tall today
and no one can explain
and no one can obtain
and i will buckle under strain.

12. what's left of death is more than fear
let dust be dust and the good lord near.
it's a little too much to ask of faith,
a little too late to wait for fate.
so tell the angels what you've seen
scarecrow's shadow on the nazarene.
ohh ohh oh oh
ohh ohh oh oh

13. you are not an open book
i am worn and torn
i am overdrawn

Open Book

14. anticipation has the habit to set you up.
The View from the Afternoon

15. i want to die today, and make love with you in my grave.
Les OS

16. i see the fire, i see the end.
The Seer's Tower

17. dressed up like a million-dollar trooper,
tryin hard to look like gary cooper (super duper)

Puttin' on the Ritz

18. no nonsense makes no sense at all.
forget what you don't know,
you said i heard it,
i even listened i finally learned,
sharing and taking turns.
now it's our chance, we'll feel complete
i'll ask you to dance and if you'll agree
it's me and you
that makes us two with four left feet

Four Left Feet

19. eager for action and hot for the game..
Life In The Fast Lane

20. but there's no one here, to break my fall.
there's no one here, to pick me up off the floor.

Call of Distress

21. we'd like to take you home with us,
we'd love to take you home.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

22. well my heart is where it's always been,
my head is somewhere in between,
give me one more chance,
let me be your lover tonight.
oh yeah, check it out,
you're the real thing.

Even Better Than the Real Thing

23. do you think i'm really cool and sexy,
and i know you want to get with me.
last time lover, do you wanna be my last time baby,
could it be your first time maybe.

Last Time Lover

24. the girl with crimson nails, has jesus round her neck

25. well my heart knows me better than i know myself so i'm gonna let it do all the talking.
Black Horse and the Cherry Tree

26. the setting sun's the only thing that's shining on you.
Yellow Sun

27. she thought that she could buy happiness by, by the bottle.
The Fourth Drink Instinct

28. what's holding up her face, nothing but blue skies.
Love Is a Place

29. oh sinners let's go down,
down in the valley to pray.

Down to the Valley

30. no, i'm no one's wife but oh, i love my life.
and all that jazz.

All That Jazz

31. i'm on fire and now i think i'm ready to bust a move.
The Future Freaks Me Out

32. lyin, cheatin, hurtin, that's all you seem to do.
Your Time Is Gonna Come

33. it's so beautiful, our lunacy. it's so beautiful.
Disconnect the Dots

34. so far dishonest as the day is long.
The Enemy

35. the phone is a fine invention, it allows me to talk endlessly to you.
about nothing disguising my intentions which i'm afraid, are wildy untrue.

You Are What You Love

36. here i go again, react without a plan.
Mama's Room

37. caviar and cigarettes, well- versed in etiquette.
Killer Queen

38. i pray that you won't follow,
through the crooked streets behind me.
i pray that you won't follow
like so many who i've roamed there.
so i'm leaving for paris
don't you try to find out where i am
just you try to take care of yourself.

39. can we take the next hour and talk about me?
I'm Actual

40. if she had half a mind, well she might not take this song quite so seriously,
so put the notebook down, and take off your dress.


41. but when i get home to you, i find the things that you do, will make me feel alright.
A Hard Day's Night

42. the crazy hippies, they're running scared.
she shut her eyes and imagined the desert.

Act Of The Apostle Part 1

43. born like sisters to this world,
in a town where blood ties are only blood.


44. i was just guessing at numbers and figures,
pulling the puzzles apart.

The Scientist

45. twenty years of bad decisions haven't taught me much at all.

46. i'll bury this town tonight.

47. look in my eyes, what do you see?
i'm hanging upside down like a chimpanzee.

Keep Sending Me Black Fireworks

48. it was your hello that kept me hanging on every word.
and your goodbye that keeps me from listening for your voice around each corner.

She Changes Your Mind

49. he had the whisper of lust,
he said no touching tonight,
she closed her eyes in his trust.
she said tuck me in
he knew his judgement was sound
still he pulled back the sheets
and said you better lie down cause the angels are watching.


50. so here we are, reinventing the wheel.
shaking hands with a hurricane.
