The Lyric Headers

Months ago I replaced the blog's logo with lyrics taken from songs. This was inspired by a WGE training session where, from memory, I reeled off my favourite lyrics and Ana rated them in the order that she liked. I liked the idea of having them as quotes, stripped of the music and singing to see if they worked on their own.

Some did and some didn't, so I looked elsewhere. Last week I replaced the lyrics with a standard header with the intent of a new series of quotations from novels and movies. This... doesn't work as well as I hoped as the vernacular used in some films is a little unimaginative. So, I've replaced them with more of my favourite lyrics, starting with this current one from Yo La Tengo. As the logo's are gone, below is the previous headers archived.

Sit with me a while and let me listen to you talk about your dreams and your obsessions, I'll be quiet and confessional... the violets explode inside me when I meet your eyes, then I'm spinning and I'm driving like a cloud of starlings... Darling is this love?

I said "Kiss me, you're beautiful, these are truly the last days" and we fell into it, like a daydream or a fever.

Your thoughts are the strangest place I've ever been, stranger even than Los Angeles - it's like a cinema where they never ask you to leave.

11am soon became 1am and the next day, and it seems that I've spent some 20 years just gazing at your face... and in her eyes she seemed to know me, seemed to search into my soul.

Last night I dreamt that somebody loved me. No hope, no harm, just another false alarm.
