Talking Heads – "Once In A Lifetime" (1980)
"And you may find yourself Living in a shotgun shack, And you may find yourself In another part of the world, And you may find yourself Behind the wheel of a large automobile, And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, With a beautiful wife, And you may ask yourself, well How did I get here? … And you may ask yourself What is that beautiful house? And you may ask yourself Where does that highway go to? And you may ask yourself Am I right? Am I wrong? And you may say yourself, "My God! What have I done?"
Depeche Mode – "Waiting for the Night" (1990)
"And when I squinted, The world seemed rose-tinted, And angels appeared to descend, To my surprise, With half-closed eyes, Things looked even better, Than when they were opened … Been waiting for the night to fall, Now everything is bearable, And here in the still, All that you feel is tranquility"
Moloko – "The Time Is Now" (2000)
"You're the first thing, And the last thing on my mind, In your arms I feel, Sunshine"
Modjo – "Lady (Hear Me Tonight)" (2000)
"Lady, Hear me tonight, Cause my feeling, Is just so right, As we dance, By the moonlight, Can't you see, You're my delight"
Muse – "Hysteria" (2003)
"'Cause I want it now, I want it now, Give me your heart and your soul, And I'm breaking out, I'm breaking out, Last chance to lose control"
Lana Del Rey – "Born To Die" (2012)
"Feet don't fail me now, Take me to the finish line, Oh my heart it breaks, every step that I take, But I'm hoping at the gates, They'll tell me that you're mine … Lost, but now I am found, I can see that once I was blind, I was so confused as a little child, Trying to take what I could get, Scared that I couldn't find, All the answers, honey"
