I am 32 flavors and then some

Lyrics I’m obsessed with right now:

“Fade like a fashion, the moment is passing
And I can’t stay much longer in the dark”
Sandra McCracken – “500 Miles”

“We raise our glasses to puzzle pieces
and the way they fit together
we never saw till now.
Here’s to questions that meet their answers
in the bright light of hindsight,
it’ll all come clear, somehow.”
Tara Leigh Cobble – “Here’s to Hindsight”

“I’m tired of looking ’round rooms
Wondering what I’ve got to do
Or who I’m supposed to be
I don’t want to be anything other than me”
Gavin DeGraw – “I Don’t Want to Be”

“This is for all you girls about 25
In little apartments, just trying to get by
Living on, on dreams and spaghettios
Wondering where your life’s going to go”
Martina McBride – “This One’s for the Girls”

“Someday I’ll fly, someday I’ll soar
Someday I’ll be, so damn much more
Because I’m bigger than my body gives me credit for”
John Mayer – “Bigger Than My Body”

“I hope you meet someone your height
So you can see eye to eye
With someone as small as you”
Nickel Creek – “Somebody More Like You”
(Because it makes me laugh, not because I actually feel that way.  I’m not in a bitter place right now.)

“All the other girls here are stars
You are the Northern Lights”
And also:
“Well I know you are waiting
And I know that it is not for me
But I’m here and I’m waiting
And I saved you the passenger seat
And I won’t be your last dance
Just your last good night”
Josh Ritter – “Kathleen”

“Squint your eyes and look closer
I’m not between you and your ambition
I am a poster girl with no poster
I am thirty-two flavors and then some”
Ani Difranco – “32 Flavors”

“And it’s true
I tend to follow in his stride
Instead of side by side
I take his cue
True, but there’s no question
There’s no doubt
I said I’d stick it out
And follow through
And when I do”
That part always breaks my heart.
The Last 5 Years — “A Part of That”

“How full of doubts I am
Though full of grace Thou art”
I don’t remember who wrote it right now. But it’s an old hymn. And it’s good. Very good.

“All unholy and unclean
I am nothing but sin;
On thy mercy I rely
Give me Christ, or else I die”
Same as before. Excellent.

I was going to continue with other music-related lists, which I started jotting down between designing and editing pages tonight, but the document got to be three pages long and it got to be just after 1 a.m. I’m going to bed instead.

  1. I *love* that song “Kathleen”. For obvious reasons. 😉

    Great lyric choices, Auntie!

  2. That’s fine for Martina McBride to talk about Spaghetti-Os — I’m 23 and male and living on ramen. I can’t afford Spaghetti-Os. Dammit. ::bitter young journalist grumbling::

  3. I love that Nickel Creek lyric. I always laugh at it too! Hahah, mostly ’cause that’s totally something I would have said at several points in my life.

  4. Ryan (projS3/SLIPSTR3AM)

    32 Flavors… I remember that song. I haven’t listened to Ani in a long while.

  5. That Nickel Creek lyric is funny, my friend Sarah loves them and made me listen to it over and over again. :o)

    32 flavors was my theme song for so long and I love love love that Gavin Degraw… even before it was the OTH theme.
