Buzz Lyrics Quiz 2010 #1

Tags: , songs

It’s been a looooong time since I ran a lyrics quiz.  So long, in fact, that I forgot how many I’ve done and can’t easily research it.  Thus, we start from #1 again :)

Here are the rules.  I give you a song lyrics.  You give me title and artist for each in the comments section.  Winner gets…love and admiration…and quite possibly many songs stuck in their head!  These songs come from all genres and eras.  Nothing is off limits!  Also, no cheating (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc…do this for real!)

1 – Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup, They slither while they pass

2 – Another promise, another scene.  Another packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed

3 – She makes a man wants to speak Spanish

4 – What about yesterday? What about us? What about the seas? What about us?

5 – Don’t fall away and leave love bleeding in my hands, in my hands again

6 – Close like Starsky and Hutch, Stick the Clutch

7 – Through the storm we reach the shore.  You give it all but I want more

8 – Beneath the stains of time the feelings disappear. You are someone else, I am still right here

9 – But got it just don’t get it till’ there’s nothing at all

10 – Take these chances, place them in a box until a quieter time

BONUS – I got a Lincoln Continental and a sunroof Cadillac

Good luck!
