Anyone fancy a game? Post some lyrics you love/resonate say why you love them and other posters guess what song they're from.

Mine is "it was cold and it rained and I felt like an actor"

Whenever it's cold and rainy (I live in the North, this is often) and I'm walking down the street I often feel like I'm in a film and it makes me think of this lyric.

5 Years. David Bowie

Your a little star struck innuendos
Inadequacies an' foreign bodies,
And the sunlight shining through the crack in the window pane
Numbs my brain.

I've heard it said,
That people come into our lives
For a reason
Bringing something we must learn.
And we are led to those
Who help us most to grow if we let them.
And we help them in return.
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you.

"For Good". Kristin Chenowith, Wicked soundtrack?

I knew 'Five Years' but not the others. How about
"Berenice, those insect eggs are hatching out and I think I'm going deaf in one ear and my balance is shot..."
from one of my favourite now-defunct bands.

Van Morrison - forgotten the title - cerse?

It's Van Morrison - T.B. Sheets

"So make the best of this test, and don't ask why. Its not a question, but a lesson learned in time"

My favourite song ever, which has got me through some interesting times.

Green Day - Good Riddance
That's a fabulous song smile

"She's been afraid of the Cuisinart since 1977
Now when she opens up the house
Well, she won't set foot in the kitchen"

One of my favourite bands, I love the way their songs tell stories (poignant, silly, funny, or just real life).

"Duch of the Terrace, never grew up
I hope she never will
Broken down TV sits in the corner
Picture's standing still
Standing still"

Although these moments are just in my head
I'll be thinking about them as I'm lying in bec
And all that I believe might not even come true
But in my mind I'm having a pretty good time with you.

And now the end is here!
There's no more pills, to swallow!
The bitter taste I feel, won't lead me to, tomorrow!

Sugar - "5 years' time". Noah and the Whale.

Once again we walk this lonely road. There are times that we are wading through the rain and cold. We're lost in memories of what we left behind, relive the dreams, the endless screams of pain inside.

It resonates with me as I do this often. I remember what I've left behind, and I remember the pain and the hurt.
