I could be here and now

One of These Things First :: Nick Drake
from the album, Bryter Layter (1970)

“I could have been your pillar,
could have been your door,
I could have stayed beside you,
could have stayed for more.
Could have been your statue,
could have been your friend,
a whole long lifetime could have been the end.
I could be yours so true.”

They Don’t Know (1979) :: Kirsty MacColl

Born to Run :: Bruce Springsteen
from the album, Born to Run (1975)

Happy Birthday, Born to Run! 40 years!

“Just wrap your legs ’round these velvet rims,
and strap your hands ‘cross my engines,
together we could break this trap.
We’ll run till we drop,
baby we’ll never go back,
oh-oh, will you walk with me out on the wire,
`cause baby I’m just a scared and lonely rider,
but I gotta know how it feels;
I want to know if love is wild.”

The Jean Genie :: David Bowie
from the album, Aladdin Sane (1973)

“A small Jean Genie snuck off to the city,
strung out on lasers and slash back blazers,
and ate all your razors while pullin’ the waiters,
talking bout Monroe and walkin’ on snow white,
New York’s a go-go and everything tastes right;
poor little Greene.”

I wouldn’t trade you for another girl

Mother of Pearl (live) :: Roxy Music
from the album, Stranded (1973)

“It’s the same old story,
all love and glory,
it’s a pantomime.
If you’re looking for love,
in a looking glass world,
it’s pretty hard to find.”
