I played that song Friday night, likely the only time ever in my life I'll do so.
Awfully different without you
Don't get around much anymore
Well it's too bad, and it's too sad
but I'm in love with you
Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is to see you
Don't send me no more letters no
Not unless you mail them
From Desolation Row
When I'm watchin' my tv and a man comes on and tell me
How white my shirts can be
But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
The same cigarettes as me

I swear, but now I'm playing time
Against my troubles, oh
I'm coming slow but speeding
- Dave Matthews
I ain't got time for make believin'
My time is short but I'm here to stay
And no politics will cure the grieving
So I choose my life and I choose it my way

UFO - This Kids
'Lawyer proved I wasn't born, I was only hatched'

The one song who's lyrics have stuck with me is The Beatles 'In my life'
There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all.....
In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains
'These old love letters, well I just can't keep 'em,
Like the gambler says, read 'em and weep'
It Makes No Difference - The Band
