Song Quotes

The following are a list of song quotes that I have a particular fondness for. Some quotes have a personal meaning to me, some create a sense of nostalgia, while others are just plain funny. Regardless, here they are, in no real order.

Is it any wonder I've got,
too much time on my hands,
it's ticking away with my sanity.

Man in the Wilderness

I've felt this way many times. You're surrounded by things that are very close to what you need, but not close enough.

the TV or the magazines.
They show you photographs of how your life should be,
but they're just someone else's fantasy.

when everyone has gone.

you can see the stars and still not see the light.
