The All Seeing I (Jarvis Cocker and Tony Christie)

'Marie has set up home with a man who's half my age
A halfwit in a leotard stands on my stage'.

It just makes me laugh. Funny, sad and sweet all at once.

You are the only thing, in every room you're ever in......Starlings, by Elbow.

And possibly every other Elbow track ever written.

"She was one in a million...so there's five more just in New South Wales" The Whitlams

I read something about Elbow once that said (something like) they articulate what every emotionally-suppressed man is actually thinking ... Their lyrics are lovely.

I like most of Ed Sheerans. Favourite is from his song Drunk and its:

"What didn't kill me
it never made me stronger at all"

Also The Band Perry, If I Die Young:

"A penny for my thoughts, oh, no, I'll sell 'em for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin"

My user name Iw after a line in the song. 'Isn't it ironic. Xxx

She is gone, but she was here, and her presence still lingers in the air, oh what a taste of perfect love, but she was gone and it doesn't matter anymore - Willie Nelson She is gone

I love Ed Sheeran's lyrics. I'd love to know if these men who write beautifully expressed, emotional lyrics are that emotionally literate in real life? Are they all deep thinkers who can express their emotional inner workings to their partner?

RunDougalRunQuiteFast Wed 25-Jun-14 22:28:28

Too many emotions there, sorry!

I am what I am
I am my own special creation
So come take a look
Give me the hook or the ovation

It's my world that I want to have a little pride in
My world and it's not a place I have to hide in
Life's not worth a damn
Till you can say, hey world, I am what I am

I am what I am
I don't want praise, I don't want pity
I bang my own drum
Some think it's noise, I think it's pretty

Love that song

"I guess I shoulda known by the way you parked your car sideways that it wouldn't last" - Little Red Corvette Prince

And all the words of First Cut is the Deepest - Cat Stevens

While 3 chambers of my heart beat true and strong with love for another,
The 4th, the 4th is yours for ever.

Elbow again. This actually made me pull the car over in a layby and weep.

We can't dance, we don't talk much
We just ball and play.
But then we move like tigers on Vaseline
Bowie - Hang Onto Yourself

And I've walked down life's lonely highways, hand in hand with myself.
Lou Reed - I Found a Reason.

All of Dance Me To The End Of Love by Leonard Cohen

wigglesrock Wed 25-Jun-14 22:45:01

Kim147 - that song always takes me back - it was my 17 year old selfs out for the night with a group of friends and a sneaky carry out in the park before the disco song grin

But it's hard to get by, when your arse is the size of a small country.

National Express, Divine Comedy.

bayrans Wed 25-Jun-14 22:54:50

Excuse me if I spoke too soon, my eyes have always followed you around the room...

Noel Gallagher and HFBs

I love the lyrics to Unstoppable - Rascall Flatts

You find your faith that's been lost and shaken
You take back what's been taken
Get on your knees and dig down deep
You can do what you think is impossible
Keep on believing, don't give in
It'll come and make you whole again
It always will, it always does
Love is unstoppable

maudpringles Wed 25-Jun-14 22:56:50

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time...

How long will I love you - Ellie Goulding. Listened to it whilst in labour with my daughter and it's such a lovely song. Reminds me of having her every time I hear it grin

My love Isobel
Married to myself

Bjork

Love Divine Comedy, many funny and touching lyrics there!

Ronnie Williams in millennium
"Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough" brilliant to have got that in a song and got away with it.

StandardHeight Wed 25-Jun-14 23:01:06

Robbie not blimin Ronnie

Its four in the morning, the end of december
I'm writing you now just to see if you're better
New York is cold but I like where I'm living
there's music on Clinton street all through the evening
