guess the song

October 31st, 2005

i got this from sarah
Step 1) check the list of the last 10 MP3s you listened to
Step 2) find their lyrics
Step 3) Put in your LJ (i’m changing it to “your blog” thankyouverymuch) some excerpt of those lyrics
Step 4) Dare your friends to guess the title and artist!

‘s magnificque, ‘s what I seek
You should care for me.
‘s elegant, ‘s what I want,
‘s what I love to see.

My dear, itâ™s four leaved clover time,
From now on my heartâ™s working overtime,
‘s exceptional, ‘s no bagatelle,
That you should care for…
That you should care for…
That you should care for me…

Clouds are breaking, heaven’s come to earth
Hearts awakening let the church bells ring
And all you ever do is change the old for new
People we believe that

3. answer: mr. brightside (the killers) [guessed by sarah]
Gotta gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now Iâ™m falling asleep
And sheâ™s calling a cab
While heâ™s having a smoke
And sheâ™s taking a drag

Inside us all there is a void
All mankind is searching for the one who fills the soul
In Him there’s hope in Him there’s life
The world cries for a savior that’s right before their eyes
What is man that He takes us in as His children to be His own
And what are we that He wants to be our Father
All that I can say is…

5. answer: bring me to life (evanescence). [guessed by sarah]
all this time i can’t believe i couldn’t see
kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
i’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
got to open my eyes to everything
without a thought without a voice without a soul
don’t let me die here
there must be something more

What have I been given by Your grace?
Will I come to understand this mystery I embrace?
Make of me a new creation now,
Fill me with all you are and be all I am some how.

i have long pursued her
as a harlot and a whore
but she will feast upon me
she will drink and thirst no more

so when you taste my flesh and my blood
you will know you’re not alone

there is none that can replace her
though there are many who will try
and though some may be her bridesmaids
they can never be my bride

deeper, i wanta scream
i want you to hear me
i want you to find me
i, i want to believe
but all i pray is wrong
and all i claim is gone

well, i, i got a question
i got a question
where are you?

Tell me that someday you’ll be returning
And maybe
Maybe I’ll believe
It’s just enough to see a shooting star
To know you’re never really far
It’s just enough to see a shooting star
To know you’re never really gone

From glass alabaster she poured out the depths of her soul.
O foot of Christ would you wait if her harlotries known?
falls a tear to darken the dirt.
Of humblest offerings to forgive the hurt.
She is strong enough to stand in your love.
I can hear her say..
I am weak. I am poor, I’m broken

Lord but I’m yours.
Hold me Now. hold me Now.
Let the first without sin cast the first stone if you will.
To say that my bride isn’t worth half the blood that I’ve spilled.
Point your finger and laugh if you choose to say my beloved is borrowed and used

leave your answers/guesses in the comments. good luck!

and now i’m gonna go lie down to see if my back will feel any better. grr

+ day or night: night
+ band: dang. this is a hard one. it really depends on my mood at that second. i’m a big fan of ani difranco, good Christian music (like sara groves, ginny owens, skillet, david crowder, chris tomlin, third day… etc).. and lately i’m really into bands like the killers and coldplay. eh. just check out my audioscrobbler page to see what i’ve been listening to lately 🙂

+ big or little: uhh.. what?
+ here or there: both please.
+ red or blue: red
+ new or old: both (it really depends on what it is.)
+ character on “saved by the bell”: that’s a tough one. i’d say zac, but he was most people’s favorite… i’d say screech, but he’s a jerk in real life (he’s been into the apple store here in milwaukee… just in case you were wondering “where is he now…” type questions.)… so i’ll go with jessie. 😛
