    Yes to John Prine. My favorite: Naked as the eyes of a clown. From that's the way the world goes round.

    Jeff Tweedy has a gift, especially for opening lines.

    - I dreamed about killing you again last night,
    and it felt all right to me. Via Chicago
    - All my daydreams are disasters
    she's the one, I think I love
    rivers burn, and then run backwards
    and to her, that's enough. New Madrid

    I could go on and on.

    It was raining on the sun
    The ground beneath my feet was crumbling
    Day and Night had come undone
    It was the season of my wandering

    Baby, take your tongue out of my mouth, I am kissing you goodbye ~ Jeff Daniels (yep the actor Jeff Daniels)

    and this jewel

    Have a good life...then die! I hope it hurts so much it makes you cry. I hope it’s torturous and slow, I hope you know you’re gonna go. Have a good life then die!

    the Guy just cracks me up.

    You said you didn't give a **** about hockey
    And I never saw someone say that before
    You held my hand and we walked home the long way
    You were loosening my grip on Bobby Orr
