I saw you standing in the corner
On the edge of a burning light
I saw you standing in the corner
Come to me again in the cold, cold night…

(The White Stripes – In the cold, cold night; 2003)




Moon in shadows, hiding faces in a blue-eyed dead-end-night
Broken dreams and colder heart-beats standing tender by my side
Light is fading into darkness, time to kiss your soul good night
Waiting for the everlasting, god-almighty golden light…

(Bandits – Shadows, 1997)


2014-01-27Because there’s too many fish in the sea
Too many fish in the sea
Well there’s short ones, tall ones, fine ones, kind ones
Too many fish in the sea…

(The Marvelettes, 1964)



I don’t understand about complementary colors
And what they say
Side by side they both get bright
Together they both get gray

But he’s been pretty much yellow
And I’ve been kinda blue
But all I can see is
Red, red, red, red, red now
What am I gonna do

(Fiona Apple, 2005)
