New Barenaked Ladies Album! You know I'm all about the lyrics. Here are my favorite lyrics from each song.
On the best of days there'll be joy and pain
You're right in front of me, I got a melody / If you got a malady, I got the remedy
Time makes the lemons lose their zest
What Do We Need?
Over and over and over again / I leave my family to be with my friends
Older, I'm older, I'm older again / I love it more than anything, but please make it end
I won't scramble my words, not this time
The mistake you made was /Having seen the breakthrough that would take you
Fifty for a While
I get the drift if it's real loud
It's just a little white lie from a little white guy
See the Tower
It's a Jagged Pill to swallow whole
You hold it down when I'm not around
It hadn't knocked my head clean off, but I was sure concussed
The Dream Hotel
And they've built a giant wall of pancakes in the park
I Am Asking You To
No one as loved as you are should not feel loved enough
The Peace Lady
Though I remember the cheer girl and the bike thief man / I vote for the peace lady whenever I can
I think after a few listens that Fifty for a While, Too Old, and I Am Asking You To will be my favorites, given they are about being old or your relationship growing old.
