20 Song Lyrics Meme; Tonight's 24

Gacked from rilina: On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first twenty songs on the list (no matter how cheesy or embarrassing), and write down your favourite lyrics. Then, have your friends comment and see if they know the songs.

Though I wouldn't put it past some of the people on my flist to figure out most of them. Anyway, here goes:

1. Then I'll dream about churches / with great tall spires / Cathedrals and candles / chimneys and choirs

2. With death comes the morning / Unannounced and new

3. Wet grounds, late September / The foliage of the trees

4. I drank deep from the river / And sealed up my fate / I should have seen the trap, baby / Before it was too late

5. Some days seem to drag on forever / you need all your strength just to keep your head together / soon you'll see things are gonna get better at last...

6. My aim is steady, my sights have been set / I look for perfection inside of this wreck

7. Thinking about His sacrifice / Leaves me with a choice to make / So many stand just out of reach / With eternity at stake

8. Don't mistake me to be broken down / Just because I'm on my knees

9. She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running / Like a watercolour in the rain

10. No matter how I try, can't fault your success / Makers of their destiny must always / Deal so close to the vest

11. But you're kidding yourself if you think this correspondence will end / I can always pretend words I don't have the courage to send

12. 'Cause I love you / But you're ruining my smile

13. Why do I fear for you more than my own self / When it comes down to both our lives?

14. And your earth moves beneath / Your own dream landscape

15. My hopes my dreams come true / My life I give for you / My heart or wedding ring / My all my everything

16. I find I've wandered far from home / but home is in me wherever I roam / I thought I was an hour or a year behind / but the hours and the years are only time

17. You say it's getting better / you say it's all right / but I never felt darkness / the way I feel it tonight...

18. Lie back / leave the light on / don't you cry, dear / I'll be here...

19. She comes to speak to me / I freeze immediately / Cause what she says sounds so unreal...

20. It's the way we feel tonight / lends some warmth to our cold and lonely lives...

There are three cover versions in this list: bonus points for guessing which band/artist did the covers.

As for my comment on tonight's episode of 24:

And speaking of spoilerless, that's how I want to be for this show, so if you know anything about the next couple of episodes, don't tell me, please. Now onto the commentary:

AIEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! I can't handle the suspense! *weeps and tears hair out*

I like the characters and the overall premise of the show much better on Alias than I do on 24, but I have to say, it's the latter that's been grabbing me every week and holding me on the edge of my seat. I was actually yelling instructions to the characters tonight, I was so caught up in what was going on -- they didn't listen to me, of course. Sigh.
