Cause it's been entirely too long. And besides, if you're annoyed by these, you totally don't have to play, do you?

1. I remember when you broke my favorite teacup/ You just smiled that silly smile and made me upset.

2. Why you take for instance this old broken heart/ If you will just replace the missing parts/ You will be surprised to find how good it really is.
"Bargain Store", Dolly Parton, [livejournal.com profile] hecubot
3. He says "Baby there are things we all cling to all our life/ It's time to let them go and become my wife."
"Misguided Angel", Cowboy Junkies, [livejournal.com profile] lyrajane
4. My mother made my tits outta clay/ My boyfriend told me that he'd take me away.
"Angry Inch", Hedwig and the Angry Inch (John Cameron Mitchell), [livejournal.com profile] hecubot
5. They keep it on the higher shelf/ The older and more pure it grows/ It has no color in itself/ But it can make you see rainbows.
"Love is Like a Bottle of Gin", Magnetic Fields, [livejournal.com profile] hecubot
6. They're gonna wanna know how we got in here/ And they're gonna wanna know how we plan to get out.
"Shameless", Ani DiFranco, [livejournal.com profile] pyrric
7. You have drunk a bitter wine/ With none to be your comfort/ You who once were left behind/ Will be welcome at love's table.
"By Way of Sorrow", Cry Cry Cry, [livejournal.com profile] nestra

8. You had a talent for excuses/ An innocent who'd been coerced/ You had to have it all rehearsed

9. There was a guy/ An underwater guy who controlled all the sea/ Got killed by ten million pounds of sludge
"Monkey Gone to Heaven", Pixies, [livejournal.com profile] hecubot

10. There's not a lot I believe anymore/ I mistrust everything I am longing for

11. Upheld by the simplicities of pleasure/ They gain the light, they formlessly entwine
"Alexandra Leaving", Leonard Cohen, [livejournal.com profile] pyrric

12. It's always in the smile that greets you/ When the morning sun it wakes you/ In the beauty of her bright blue eyes/ Like beauty of the Northern skies

13. Arithmetic arithmetock/ Turn the hands back on the clock/ How does the ocean rock the boat?/ How did the razor find my throat?
"Alice", Tom Waits, [livejournal.com profile] hecubot

14. now peace and love like a willow tree/ have hung their heads and wept for me/ and I'm looking for someone

15. Strange, it's not like/ Anything we've faced before
"Exposition Song", Giles in Buffy ep "Restless", [livejournal.com profile] nestra

16. What kind of rule/ Can overthrow a fool/ And leave the land with no stain.

17. He says he'd love to live with me/ But for an ancient injury/ That has not healed
"Willy", Joni Mitchell, [livejournal.com profile] resonant8

18. And I'll be at your side/ When you're falling down/ You'll be feeling fine/ When you hit the ground
19. I bet you wonder how far you have now danced your way back into debt/ This is the only kind of love as I understand it that there really is

20. Put my clarinet beneath your bed/ Till I get back in town.
"Tango Til They're Sore", Holly Cole (in my case), [livejournal.com profile] pyrric
