  • She's got one big breast in the middle of her chest/ And an eye in the middle of her nose.
    So says I, if you look her in the eye/ You're better off looking up her nose.
    -The Royal NoneSuch
  • Just like the earth, just like the sun/ Two worlds together are better than one. -Worlds Apart
  • Did the morning come too early, was the night not long enough?
    Does a tear of hesitation fall on everything you touch?
    Well, it might just be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
    Maybe leavin's not the only way to go. -Leavin's Not The Only Way to Go
  • Then I'd be free at last, free at last
    Great God Almighty I'd be free at last.
