So I just recalled a game we used to play with our teacher when I was in grade school.
I'll change the game a little bit to make it easier. :)

This game is about linking songs together using the lyrics in the song. To start the game, I will post some lines from a song of my choosing and highlight a word form the lyrics. The next poster should find a song with the highlighted word present in his/her song's lyrics.

For example:

Numb by LinkinPark:
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you


Next post:

Want To by Sugarland:
The whole world could change in a minute
Just one kiss could stop it spinning
We could think it through
But I don't want to, if you don't want to


Next post:

I Think I'm In Love by Beck:
I think I'm in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so
I think I'm in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so


Here are the rules of the game:
Title of the song should be included. Artist/Singer/Composer is optional. Including it would be better. ;)
At least 2 lines of the song. You can post the entire song if you want. :)
Underline the word from the previous song and highlight the word in your song for the next poster.
The highlighted word could be anywhere in the lyrics you post. Just make sure that you don't choke the next poster with words like universe or something like that. :)
The title is not counted as part of the lyrics. If the previous word is say and the title of your song has say in it but none in the lyrics, that song is not valid.
You can highlight more than one word to give the next poster some choices. The next poster can choose any one of them but only one.
All songs must be in English since this is an English speaking posting site.
Songs must not conflict with the TOU.

Added Rules:
Song cannot be repeated for the next, uhm, 5 posts?

Hope this turns out to be a fun game! I'll start.

Misery Business by Paramore

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now

Faron Young We've Got Something In Common

We've got something in common oh Mr Carpet on the floor
Oh we both get stepped on each time she walks out the door
And it's true that neither one of us can leave


(note...never heard this song...but google is awesome)

Diana Krall - Peel Me a Grape

Peel me a grape, crush me some ice
Skin me a peach, save the fuzz for my pillow
Talk to me nice, talk to me nice
You've got to wine and dine me

The Used - The Taste of Ink (that's gotta be better than your song)

Is it worth it can you even hear me
Standing with your spotlight on me
Not enough to feed the hungry
I'm tired and I felt it for awhile now
In this sea of lonely
The taste of ink is getting old

Hungry Heart by Bruce Springsteen

Everybody's got a hungry heart

Lay down your money and you play your part
Everybody's got a hungry heart

You highlighted 2 words, so I found a song with both in the same line:

Ryan Adams - She Wants to Play Hearts

I am a broken toy
For a lonely girl
Use once and destroy
And go find some more
Back home, kids play in the leaves in the park
She wants to play a game of hearts

I stand corrected. I was thinking of someone else. The Used oughta be sued for misrepresentation; their name always makes me think they're edgier than they are (since they're pretty much the opposite of edgy).

Ooooohhhh. Well what about this!

--=Shine Jesus Shine=--
Shine Jesus Shine
Fill this land with the Father's glory
Blaze Spirit Baze
Set our hearts on fire
Flow River Flow
Flood the nation with grace and mercy
Send forth Your word
Lord and let there be light


sari, prepare an ad! dsennete, get ready with the posters!
We need more players! :)

Ace of Base - Happy Nation

Happy nation living in a happy nation
Where people understand
And dream of the perfect man
A situation leading to sweet salvation
For the people for the good
For mankind brotherhood

i was gonna call you out for highlighting more than one word but i re-read the rules and apparently that's allowed...but i just have to match one of the ones you highlighted not a ll of them so...
