Name That Tune

Selected lyrics are posted below. Just a few of my most favorite. They are all on my iPod.


Try to name as many as you can.


How long...
How long must we sing this song?
How long? how long...

you don't know me, you don't even care,
you don't know me, you don't wear my chains...

I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20

When he first came to the mountains his life was far away
On the road and hangin' by a song
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care
It keeps changin' fast and it don't last for long

Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more

All day
Staring at the ceiling
Makin' friends with shadows on my wall

all of the things that I want to say
just aren't coming out right
I'm tripping inwards
you got my head spinning
I don't know where to go from here

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
Ive looked around enough to know
That youre the one I want to go
Through time with

and so you're back
from outer space
I just walked in to find you here
with that sad look upon your face

When Im with you
I shake inside
My hearts all tangled up
My tongue is tied its crazy

Gonna wrap my arms around you
Hold you close to me
Oh, babe, I wanna taste your lips
I wanna fill your fantasy, yeah

Why cant you see
What youre doing to me
When you dont believe a word I say?

I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It's personal, Myself and I

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Aww take me back to the start

You see it all around you
Good lovin' gone bad
And usually it's too late when you, realize what you had

Hells bells I should have got #12...funny how if I "sing those lines like Elvis" magically turns into Suspicious Minds...

Also, I should have known you'd have a Colplay tune in the mix a bakery!

I got so excited when I saw this! King Arthur Flour has made digital backgrounds that will work in Zoom, Slack, Teams & GoToMeeting! T...
