    Bright Eyes has a fairly vast discography, it's really difficult to choose favorites...

    "Does he kiss your eyelids in the morning

    when you start to raise your head and does he

    sing to you incessantly

    in the space between your bed and wall?

    Does he walk around all day at school

    With his feet inside your shoes

    looking down every few steps to pretend he walks with you?

    Oh does he know that place below your neck

    that is your favorite to be touched and does he

    cry through broken sentences, like I love you far too much

    Does he lay awake listening to your breath

    Worried you smoke too many cigarettes..."

    "This is the first day of my life

    I'm glad I didn't die before I met you

    And now I don't care I could go anywhere with you

    And I'd probably be happy."

    "I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health

    I said there's nothing I can do for you you can't do for yourself

    He said oh yes you can, just hold my hand, I think that that would help

    So I sat with him a while and asked him how he felt

    He said I think I'm cured

    No in fact, I'm sure

    Thank you stranger

    For your therapeutic smile."

    "I want a lover I don't have to love

    I want a girl who's too sad to give a f*ck

    Where's the kid with the chemicals?

    I thought he said to meet him here but I'm not sure

    I've got the money if you've got the time

    she said it feels good

    I said I'll give it a try..."

    "We made love on the living room floor

    With the noise in the background from a televised war

    And in that deafening pleasure, I thought I heard someone say

    If we walk away they'll walk away."

    "Now I do as I please, and I lie through my teeth

    Someone might get hurt, but it won't be me

    I should probably feel cheap

    But I just feel free

    And a little bit empty."

    "Oh my morning's coming back

    The whole world’s waking up

    All the city buses swimming past

    I’m happy just because

    I found out I am really no one."

    "And the truth is I've been dreaming of some tired tranquil place,

    Where the weather won't get trapped inside my bones"

    -June on the West Coast

    "..but we cry, and we dance, and we stumble into love with perfect, awkward grace"

    - A Celebration Upon Completion

    "And just when I got fed up with that gray sky

    The sun came out of nowhere like a bar fight

    And it knocked out the wind and it bruised me with light

    And I felt grateful for living just like I feel tonight"

    -Well Whiskey

    This is the first day of my life.

    I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.

    But now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you

    And I'd probably be happy.

    The song that makes me cry the most is a song called "My Immortal" by Evanescence. Beautiful , but sad written lyrics. A very powerful song that brings me to tears from the very first line of the song being sung. Every time. Amy Lee can sing the hell out of that song.
