Okay, let’s do it!

Write the first ten songs that come on shuffle - no skipping, no cheating. A new twist has been added on - quote a favorite lyric from each song, and at the end tag 10 people. I was tagged by canifall grazie amica mia! :)

- Ultravox - Reap The Wild Wind

“I have seen in times go by
I have felt a different shadow on the wall
A strangle hold on a certain feeling“

- Ultravox - One Small Day

“One day where every hour could be a joy to me
And live a life the way it’s meant to be”

- Josh Pyke - Leeward Side

“And one day you will unfold and fall into the untold
And one day you’ll long to be dancing away from me“

- Adam Lambert - Whataya Want From Me

“…I wouldn’t even try but I think you could save my life“

- Paul Simon - Hearts and Bones

“You take two bodies and you twirl them into one
Their hearts and their bones
And they won’t come undone
hearts and bones“

- Queen - We Will Rock You

“We will, we will rock you“ (?!)

- Simon and Garfunkel - I am a Rock

“I won’t disturb the slumber of feelings that have died
If I never loved I never would have cried”

- Genesis - Mama

“You’re taking away my last chance
Don’t take it away
Can’t you feel my heart?”

- Queen - I Want It All

“I’m a man with a one track mind
So much to do in one life time”

- Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

“I don’t wanna die
I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all”

I’ll tag brianmaylove brianmeh rhapsody-under-pressure mama-mia-let-him-go and everyone who wants to do it ;-)


Find what you love, and let it kill you.
Wear it like a mantle tightly tied,
With a strangle hold on your throat.

Run towards it with reckless abandon
Through miles and miles of fleeting futility
That’s dusted enough with subtle beauty
That keeps you going
Chasing illusions in the dark
To no end.

Whip yourself with self loathe and mockery
Until you are no more
Until you realize that you do not deserve whatever it is you’re looking for
Yet have the strength to get up,
To fool yourself into thinking
That a single drop of that golden nectar
Would make this all worthwhile.

Sacrifice every single second of your living moments
Into this mindless pursuit
That no one else can see.
Then at the end of your life,
You’re left powerless
Too frail to continue chasing
Yet no one can sympathize with your plight
They called you, “mad”, “freak” and other names when you were young
And maybe they were right.

Blind faith in hand, and your two feet to run
Life goes on, because time waits for no one.

Breakfast got a little messy…I guess you could say I was rather thirsty. Good thing Carlisle’s hair net came in handy! “Every vampire’s secret tool,” he told me. I struggle to determine if he meant for strangling someone or for holding back one’s beautiful locks but it certainly came in handy for the latter, just now.
