Favorite Lyrics

With great thanks for the poetry meme posted by artaxastra and tricksterquinn, I thought I'd try a variant, and post favorite song lyrics (or portions of same), in hopes of seeing what some of my friends' favorite song lyrics are. C'mon out and play - y'know ya wanna! (And Quinn, no fair using "On a hot summer night, would you offer your heart to the wolf with the red roses?")

And here's one of mine:

Now me, I thank God for my bad memory,
I've forgotten some of the stupid things that I've done.
I've come to a little wisdom, through a whole lot of failure,
So I watch more carefully what rolls off my tongue.

You pray for rain, but you don't want it from a storm,
You find a rose, and cut your finger on a thorn.

So go on and cry, Ophelia,
It's the only thing to do sometimes.
I'm crying too, I'm right there with you,
It's all right, Ophelia, everybody cries.

Cry Ophelia, Adam Cohen
