    Default What’s your pick- sexiest lyric

    Yeah dark’s the right word - a lot of Florence’s earlier songs carry the same dark tones, most famously ‘Kiss with a fist’ and ‘Drumming’. Thankfully she’s in a better headspace now and her songs are a lot more positive but with the same lyrical wit, and outstanding live performances.

    Another of hers that walks an odd line between dark, sexual, and who knows what is ‘Girl with one eye’-

    She told me not to step on the cracks
    I told her not to fuss and relax
    Pretty little face stopped me in my tracks
    But now she sleeps with one eye open
    That's the price she'll pay

    I took a knife and cut out her eye
    I took it home and watched it wither and die
    Well, she's lucky that I didn't slip her a smile
    That's why she sleeps with one eye open
    That's the price she'll pay

    I said, hey, girl with one eye
    Get your filthy fingers out of my pie
    I said, hey, girl with one eye
    I'll cut your little heart out 'cause you made me cry

    I slipped my hand under her skirt
    I said don't worry, it's not gonna hurt
    Oh, my reputation's kinda clouded with dirt
    That's why you sleep with one eye open
    But that's the price you pay

    I said, hey, girl with one eye
    Get your filthy fingers out of my pie
    I said, hey, girl with one eye
    I'll cut your little heart out 'cause you made me cry

    You made me cry
    You made me cry
    You made me cry
    If you also agree that an animals suffering should be avoided rather than encouraged, consider what steps you can take.

    That is brilliant lyrical verses. She wrote a lyrical poem , tuned it and set it to music....
    She is without doubt a poet/songwriter/singer--and it seems to me at she is a very very talented one at that....
    I am going to check out more of her song lyrics as they are actually top class poetry.
    That she also veers into the dark side, shows an exploring intellect, searching soul and true poet's heart, IMHO..-Tyr

    A couple of great songs from when I was in High School or just after! And "Always and Forever" I believe was my prom song in high school as well!

    I probably have another 300 or so lined up! While I love rock and metal, I've always loved the mellow ballads!

    Always and Forever

    Always and forever
    Each moment with you
    Is just like a dream to me
    That somehow came true, yeah

    And I know tomorrow
    Will still be the same
    'Cause we got a life of love
    That won't ever change and

    Everyday love me your own special way
    Melt all my heart away with a smile
    Take time to tell me you really care
    And we'll share tomorrow together
    Ooh baby, I'll always love you forever
    Ever, ever, ever

    There'll always be sunshine
    When I look at you, yeah
    It's something I can't explain
    Just the things that you do

    And if you get lonely
    Call me and take
    A second to give to me
    That magic you make and

    Everyday love me your own special way
    Melt all my heart away with a smile
    Take time to tell me you really care
    And we'll share tomorrow together
    Ooh baby, baby, I'll always love you forever
    Ooh baby, ooh baby, yeah baby, yeah baby, forever

    Always love you forever
    Always love you forever
    Always love you forever

    Yes, I'm the one who
    Yes, I'm the one who loves you
    Always and forever, I love you

    "I Remember You"

    Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
    The wind would whisper and I'd think of you
    And all the tears you cried – they called my name
    And when you needed me I came through

    Paint a picture of the days gone by
    When love went blind and you would make me see
    I'd stare a lifetime into your eyes
    So that I knew that you were there for me
    Time after time you were there for me

    Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
    Love letters in the sands - I remember you
    And through the sleepless nights, through every endless day
    I wanna hear you say, "I remember you."

    We spent the summer with the top rolled down
    Wished ever after would be like this
    You said I love you babe, without a sound
    I said I'd give my life for just one kiss
    I'd live for your smile and die for your kiss

    Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
    Love letters in the sands - I remember you
    And through the sleepless nights, through every endless day
    I wanna hear you say, "I remember you."

    We've had our share of hard times
    But that's the price we paid
    And through it all we kept the promise that we made
    I swear you'll never be lonely

    Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
    Washed away a dream of you
    But nothing else could ever take you away
    'Cause you'll always be my dream come true
    Oh my darling, I love you

    Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
    Love letters in the sands - I remember you
    Through the sleepless nights, through every endless day
    I wanna hear you say, "I remember you."

    Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
    Love letters in the sands - I remember you.
    Through all the sleepless nights, through every endless day
    I wanna hear you say, "I remember, I remember you!"


    "Heaven"

    I've got a picture of your house
    And you're standing by the door.
    It's black and white and faded,
    And it's looking pretty worn.
    See the factory that I worked
    Silhouetted in the back.
    The memories are gray but man they're really coming back.

    I don't need to be the king of the world
    As long as i'm the hero of this little girl

    Heaven isn't too far away
    Closer to it everyday
    No matter what your friends might say

    How I love the way you move
    And the sparkle in your eyes
    There's a color deep inside them
    Like blue suburban skys
    When i come home late at night
    And you're in bed asleep
    I wrap my arms around you
    So I can feel you breathe

    I dont need to be a superman
    As long as you will always be my biggest fan

    Heaven isn't too far away
    Closer to it everyday (Ah, ah)
    No matter what your friends might say
    We'll find our way, yeah

    Now the lights are going out,
    Along the boulevard
    Memories come rushing back and makes it pretty hard
    I've got nowhere left to go
    And no one really cares
    I don't know what to do
    But I'm never giving up on you.

    Heaven isn't too far away
    Closer to it every day
    ohhhh ohhh
    No matter what your friends say
    I know we're gonna find a way
    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.
    Winston Churchill

    I prefer lyrics capturing a moment in time and reminding the listener of the energy surrounding love. Intimacy. Simple lyrics speaking to the cosmic-type connection between the right man with the right woman.

    I have a few -

    John Mayer - Your Body is a Wonderland:

    "Something 'bout the way the hair falls in your face
    I love the shape you take when crawling towards the pillowcase
    You tell me where to go and though I might leave to find it
    I'll never let your head hit the bed without my hand behind it"

    Zac Brown Brand - Beautiful Drug

    This lyric is probably the most-simple description of what love feels like - the symptoms.

    "She lets her hair down
    And all of mine stand up"

    it's perfect.

    Matt Nathanson - Come on get higher

    "I miss the sound of your voice
    And I miss the rush of your skin
    And I miss the still of the silence
    As you breathe out and I breathe in"
    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.
