But your hair kept getting in the way
Your lips dropped in to tell me how you'd been

I'd fall asleep and then
I'd dream of you again...

So, I am in the twilight of my youth
Not that I'm going to remember
And have you seen the moon tonight
Is it full?
Still burning its embers
The people dancing in the corner, they seem happy
But I am sad
I am still dancing in the coma of the drinks I just had
Can you recommend an education or drugs
Because I am bored with you already
And I am in the twilight of my youth
Not that I am going to remember
Dancing and slowly finding the truth
- Ryan Adams, Anyone Want to Take me Home?

I don't believe in destiny or the guiding hand of fate
I don't believe in forever, or love as a mystical state
I don't believe in the stars or the planets
or angels watching from above
But I believe there's a ghost of a chance
we can find someone to love
and make it last.
- Rush, Ghost Of A Chance

I'm woven in a fantasy, I can't believe the things I see
The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall,
and with each passing day I feel a little more like something dear was lost.
It rises now before me,
a dark and silent barrier between all I am,
and all I would ever want to be.
It's just a travesty, towering, marking
off the boundaries my spirit would erase.
- Kansas, The Wall
