Name That Tune

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

DO NOT CHEAT AND LOOK THEM UP.

Try to name as many as you can.

#1
How long...
How long must we sing this song?
How long? how long...


#2
you don't know me, you don't even care,
you don't know me, you don't wear my chains...


#3
I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20


#4
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


#5
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more


#6
All day
Staring at the ceiling
Makin' friends with shadows on my wall


#7
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


#8
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


#9
and so you're back
from outer space
I just walked in to find you here
with that sad look upon your face


#10
When Im with you
I shake inside
My hearts all tangled up
My tongue is tied its crazy


#11
Gonna wrap my arms around you
Hold you close to me
Oh, babe, I wanna taste your lips
I wanna fill your fantasy, yeah


#12
Why cant you see
What youre doing to me
When you dont believe a word I say?


#13
I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It's personal, Myself and I


#14
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


#15
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"...it magically turns into Suspicious Minds...

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

Zoom....in 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...
