Favorite Lyrics...Part 1

I have decided to share my favorite lyrics with blogland. Whether you wanted to know, or not. :)

This one is from Cleveland by Jewel (there will probably be a few from her)

Went walking underneath the shadows
Where dark and suede secrets lay
When night's knife falls gently down
Hearts helplessly fall to the ground
Underneath a velvet sky
Only words can lie

I wanna tell you everything
I wanna make your toes curl
You'll be my only boy
And I'll be your only girl
There's not much I can say
You're in Cleveland today
You're in Cleveland today

Stewardesses like Cosmo magazine
Vogue makes me nervous, I feel so plain
I could face the world fearlessly
If you would face it here with me
With just our four hands and four eyes
Traffic cops will compromise

Daffodils and roulette wheels and rusty automobiles
Somewhere our things share the same windowsill
Somewhere our hearts exist independent of time
Somewhere we are whole
One body, one body and one mind

From the air things look so ridiculous
Our fears so small, our fights so vain
I want to pilot a plane with you
So all our problems look small too
It's just an inch from me to you
Depending on what map you use

I've never been a fan of Jewel's music, but I read a poem once of hers that has sort of haunted me for years...

Can you imagine
how silent
a plane crash would be
if you were deaf?

How unbearably loud a rape?

I think that is like the most "wow" sort of thing to think about...has stuck with me for years.
