if anyone cares - to avoid those extra blank lines, write everything on a "single" line (let the text wrap automatically in the box without hitting "return") and close list items explicitly (with </li>) to separate individual entries. quonsar will explain why this happens.

In my imagination
- There is no complication
- I dream about you all the time

In my mind
- a celebration
- The sweetest of sensation
- Thinking you could be mine

In my imagination (2)
- There is no hesitation
- We walk together hand in hand

I'm dreaming
- You fell in love with me
- Like I'm in love with you
- But dreaming's all I do
- - - If only they'd come true

I should
- be so lucky
- Lucky
- lucky
- lucky

I should
- be so lucky in love

I should
- be so lucky
- Lucky
- lucky
- lucky

I should
- be so lucky in love

Very good years:
  • When I was seventeen
    • For small town girls
    • For soft summer nights
    • For hiding from the lights on the village green
  • When I was twenty-one
    • For city girls
      • Lived up the stair
      • Had perfumed hair
    • It came undone
  • When I was thirty-five
    • For blue-blooded girls of independent means
    • Riding in limousines driven by chauffeurs
  • Now
    • The days grow short
    • In the autumn of the [metaphorical] year
    • Thinking of my life as vintage wine
      • From fine old kegs
      • From the brim to the dregs
      • Poured sweet and clear

  • a courtyard
    • violets in bloom (a lot; resembling an ocean)
    • animals
      • in curious poses
      • sensing an intense connection of an emotional/ sexual nature ("heat") between us
Why you should not have left me standing:

    • and I am alone
Theories as to why you've left me standing:
  • I am too demanding
  • You are too demanding
  • I am like my father

    Who We Are:
    - whoever we are, wherever we're from
    - we should've noticed by now our behavior is dumb

    Areas To Improve:
    - it's going to take a lot more than trying to remove
    - the other race or the other whatever
    - from the face of the planet altogether

    Materials Needed:
    - A french bomb to poof them out of existence
    - Leave their real estate just where we need it

    - God made us out to be just like him
    - If we are dumb
    - Then god is dumb
    - and maybe a little ugly n the side

    (yeah, wordy I know. I need practice)

    Life :
    - Is bigger than you.

    You :
    - Are not me.

    I :
    - Said too much.
    - Set it up.
    - Haven't said enough.

    In the corner :
    - Me.

    In the spotlight :
    - Me. Losing my religion.

    Things I don't know if I can do :
    - Keep up with you.

    I thought :
    - That I heard you laughing.
    - That I heard you sing.
    - That I saw you try.

    Every waking hour I am :
    - Choosing my confessions.
    - Trying to keep an eye on you.

    Consider :
    - This.
    - Hint of the century.
    - Slip that brought my knees.

    What if? :
    - These fantasies come flailing around.

    That was :
    - Just a dream.

    It's funnier if you keep the list short and sort of summarize the main points. This one is hilarious, for example. It's not so funny when you just list every word of the freaking song in an outline format.

    Only if you didn't go to the second page on the main link. I think the original one on there is a better working-out of it. But dhartung certainly wins for picking the song that this works best with.

    I will use this opportunity to illustrate why I don't like Ben Harper.

    What oppression does:
    - preys on us when we sleep
    - chases after:
    . - the tired
    . - the poor
    . - the weak
    - knows it means only harm
    - reaches out with its long arm
    - won't be let near Ben Harper
    - shall learn to fear Ben Harper
    - seeks population control
    - to divide and conquer is its goal

    Who I always have to steal my kisses from:
    - you
    - you
    - you
    - you

    - Ben harper don't want that kind of it in his life anymore
    - always seems to be around when it begins
    - never seems to be around when it ends
    - people spend so much time every day giving it away
    - Ben Harper won't let his roam
    So give Ben Harper your:
    - forever (not a day less will do)

    Excuse me, Mister,
    - do you have the time? Or are you so important that it stands still?
    - won't you lend me your ears? Or are you not only blind but do you not hear?
    - but isn't that you're oil in the sea? And the pollution in the air, whose could that be?

    This is so bloody fun I have to go again. Forgive me.

    Things you never knew:
    - love
    -- until you crossed the line of grace
    - how low you'd stoop to make that call
    - what was on the ground
    -- until they made you crawl
    - that the heaven you keep you stole

    Things you never felt:
    - wanted
    -- until you had someone slap your face
    - alive
    -- until you'd almost wasted away

    - had to win
    - couldn't just pass
    - [were] the smartest ass at the top of the class

    You had:
    - flying colors
    - family tree
    - lessons in history
    - Catholic blues
    - convent shoes
    - stick-on tattoos
    --now making the news
    - holy war
    - northern star
    - Sermon on the Mount from the boot of your car

    - get up off your knees
    - leave me out of this mess

    Love is:
    - hard
    - tough
    - not what you're thinking of
    - big
    -- bigger than us

    - streets capsizing
    - spilling over down the drain
    - shards of glass
    - splinters like rain
    - you could only feel your own pain

    - talk getting nowhere

    November, December:
    - remember
    - we just started again

    It's what lovers:
    - steal
    - deal

    Why I found it hard to receive:
    - 'cause you, my love, I could never believe
