This is the lyrics meme from [ profile] kviri and many others. Well, mostly - I took liberties with the numbers, skipped ones that were instrumental / not in English / etc., stuff like that. These are the first one or two lines - try to figure out the artist and song title. Good luck! :)

(I'm pretty sure they're all correct, because I'm rather bad at recognizing lyrics myself, so I looked them up.)

1) See the dust fly / Too late, too late to say goodbye

2) Well, it's not far down to paradise, at least it's not for me

3) You've had your last regrets / Reached your final depths

4) You dress me up, I'm your puppet

5) I hear the ticking of the clock / I'm lying here, the room's pitch dark

6) Check your weapons at the door / You don't live here anymore

7) I want to breathe you in, deep into a place you've been before I knew what I was wishing for

8) I've been dreaming for so long / To find a meaning to understand

9) There is freedom within, there is freedom without / Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

10) We used to swim the same moonlight waters / Oceans away from the wakeful day

11) Languid waves of desperation / Fall before the rains

12) Cover the mirror / Hide in your dreams

13) Like anyone would be I am flattered by your fascination with me

14) We pretend to be afraid / Underneath our twilight

15) I lost myself in shapeless oceans / Whose depths concealed more than they showed

Well, #12 is Bury My Lovely, the iconic song from October Project. The rest of them sound like they *could* be October Project!

#2 is Sailing by Christopher Cross. Poor guy. One-hit-wonder.

#5 is Heart, "Till Then"? I can't recall the actual title.

#9 is Don't Dream It's Over, by...nrrgh...that band. [Looked it up: Crowded House.]

He wasn't a one-hit wonder. He had three hits. :)

Sailing, Arthur's Song (The Best That You Can Do), and Ride Like The Wind.

Hmm. I know I know #15, but I'm not placing it...

Nothing else rings a bell.

OK, now that I'm mentally hearing it as a male vocalist rather than female, I'll say A23(*).

But I can't name the song. It's not any of the ones off of Storm. I don't know that you own Contempt or Defiance, so it's probably from Failure. I'm pretty sure it's not "Naked", "I Am The Rain", or "Awake" - I think I'd remember those openings better - nor "King of Insects", which I routinely skip and thus wouldn't seem so familiar.

(* = Can't claim credit for actually realizing this; I Googled. But had I made that mental shift I think I'd have gotten it?)

I think that's track #6 on Failure? Couldn't tell you the name of the song, though. :)

13) Uninvited - Alanis Morrisette

I damned well better get this one. I remember how nuts we went trying to find this for you. :)

Yeah, yeah, I'm still alive and kicking.


Ha! I finally know one!

I have never in my life been able to name one, but....

2. Christopher Cross - Sailing
4. Rent - Pet Shop Boys or Liza Minelli (I have both versions, I don't know which one you have)
5. Heart - Alone
9. I know this one, but I don't know either the artist or the title. Just the song. ;) Child of the 80s I am, mm?
12. October Project - Bury My Lovely

#11 is Citadel by Cruxshadows. Gah, that took entirely too long to figure out.

#14 is Nightmares, by The Last Dance.

I believe #15 is "Divide" by Assemblage 23.

And #9 is now playing in my head, but I can't remember the title or singer. It's an 80's tune. "Hey now, hey now / Don't dream it's over / They come, they come / A world between us"
