Sweet Ass Lyrics and Lines Part 1 of 500

I haven't really been able to think of something to write about for today because I've been busy sleeping/thinking about all the work I have to do so this post is a bit of a cop-out. I was listening to Bon Iver's "re:stacks" and I thought to myself, I love the lyrics to this song. Naturally then I started thinking of all my favourite lyrics, or some of the best lyrics I've ever heard. Sometimes lyrics can save a song (or completely ruin it) and sometimes they can hold more weight than perhaps intended simply because of what is going on in your life at the time.

So this is a look at some lines that I think are really clever or meaningful and that I probably put in my MSN name at one time in high school. Also I didn't realize that this was a huge undertaking and so there will be a part two and probably a part three to this. I mean srsly I just spent hours going through songs and looking up lyrics. This is from A-N and there's a zillion in between that I missed so I have no idea how I'm going to organize this are you even reading anymore

I love Muse, and it's so irritating to me that it's been made popular by Twilight, of all things.

After polling the other 2 biggest Tegan and Sarah fans I know, I downloaded So Jealous to take to the gym.

I know it may seem a bit fast, but I'm in love. I'm sure Tegan and Sara and I will have many happy years together in the future. Thank you SO MUCH for introducing us (don't know why I haven't bothered before, they've been recommended to me for years).

And at least one perk of getting into a band late in the game is that there is instant gratification when you want to hear more. :D

Oh, it totally is. It just makes me feel like my love is a tiny bit dirty.
