    It sounds like it could be, but I'm just not pulling it out of my head.

    Okay - another genre deviation here .... This may be way too easy - will be for someone who is into the genre, but I'm trying to gauge what kind of music might be a fit for this thread.

    As we taxi toward the runway
    With the smog and haze reminding me
    Of how I feel
    Just a country boy who's learning
    That the pitfalls of the city are extremely real

    I felt that with all the different tastes in music within the forums, I could easily lose my way. I don't listen to certain genres of music and those I do listen to, I don't always get the words right. That doesn't stop me from singing along and making up words as I go. What's been fun has been seeing lyrics I should know, but sticking someone else's voice to it thinking it looks like a "this band's" song. I'm guilty of Tom Petty, The Eagles and Stevie Nicks so far and was wrong on each. It's still a lot of fun. Some dark lyrics though. I worry for the composers.

    Cool kids never have the time
    On a live wire right up off the street
    You and I should meet

    Junebug skipping like a stone
    With the headlights pointed at the dawn
    We were sure we'd never see an end to it all

    And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
    And we don't know just where our bones will rest
    To dust I guess
    Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

    Double-cross the vacant and the bored
    They're not sure just what we have in store
    Morphine city slipping dues down to see

    That we don't even care as restless as we are
    We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
    And poured cement, lamented and assured
    To the lights and towns below

    Faster than the speed of sound
    Faster than we thought we'd go
    Beneath the sound of hope

    Justine never knew the rules,
    Hung down with the freaks and ghouls
    No apologies ever need be made
    I know you better than you fake it to see

    That we don't even care to shake these zipper blues
    And we don't know just where our bones will rest
    To dust I guess
    Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

    The street heats the urgency of now
    As you see there's no one around

    I laugh at your comment about making up words because I think we all do that. I loved that commercial that came out a few years ago where a married couple was driving down the road and one started singing the words to "Rocket Man", and the other was surprised at some of the lyrics that he/she had never really grasped before. Those same lyrics had always been lost on me too, and I always kind of fumbled through when singing along with the song. I think that happens a lot. Now that we have the internet I've at times looked up lyrics that I never could figure out.

    A long time ago, yeah
    Before you was born dude
    When I was still single
    And life was great
    I held this job as a traveling salesman
    That kept me moving from state to state

    Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
    State of Louisiana
    Wondering where a city boy could go
    To get a little conversation
    Drink a little red wine
    Catch a little bit of those Cajun girls
    Dancing to Zydeco

    Along come a young girl
    She's pretty as a prayerbook
    Sweet as an apple on Christmas day
    I said good gracious can this be my luck
    If that's my prayerbook
    Lord let us pray

    Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
    State of Louisiana
    Wondering where a city boy could go
    To get her in a conversation
    Drink a little red wine
    Dance to the music of Clifton Chenier
    The King of the Bayou

    Well, that was your mother
    And that was your father
    Before you was born dude
    When life was great
    You are the burden of my generation
    I sure do love you
    But let's get that straight

    Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
    Across the street from The Public
    Heading down to the Lone Star Cafe
    Maybe get a little conversation
    Drink a little red wine
    Standing in the shadow of Clifton Chenier
    Dancing the night away

    'll shine up the old brown shoes
    Put on a brand new shirt
    I'll get home early from work
    If you say that you love me

    Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you crying?
    Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you crying?
    Feeling all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dying
    Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you crying?

    I could see the city light
    Wind was blowing, time stood still
    Eagle flew out of the night
    He was something to observe
    Came in close, I heard a voice
    Standing stretching every nerve
    Had to listen had no choice
    I did not believe the information
    (I) just had to trust imagination
    My heart going boom boom boom
    "Son," he said "Grab your things,
    I've come to take you home."

    To keep in silence I resigned
    My friends would think I was a nut
    Turning water into wine
    Open doors would soon be shut
    So I went from day to day
    Tho' my life was in a rut
    "Till I thought of what I'd say
    Which connection I should cut
    I was feeling part of the scenery
    I walked right out of the machinery
    My heart going boom boom boom
    "Hey" he said "Grab your things
    I've come to take you home."
    (Back home.)

    When illusion spin her net
    I'm never where I want to be
    And liberty she pirouette
    When I think that I am free
    Watched by empty silhouettes
    Who close their eyes but still can see
    No one taught them etiquette
    I will show another me
    Today I don't need a replacement
    I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
    My heart going boom boom boom
    "Hey" I said "You can keep my things,
    they've come to take me home."

    and I will show for you
    show for me, I will show for you
    yea, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you
    only you
    you've been coming through
    going to build that powerr
    build, build up that power, hey
    I've been feeding the rhythm
    I've been feeding the rhythm
    going to feel that power, build in you
    come on, come on, help me do
    yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you
    I've been feeding the rhythm
    I've been feeding the rhythm
    it's what we're doing, doing
    all day and night

    A lot of people got the words wrong to Tiny Dancer by Elton John. It was even in an episode of Friends where Phoebe is singing "Hold me closer, Tony Danza". Since it was the title of the song, I'm at a loss on that one. I joined the choir at church and there was a song that everyone else was familiar with. I didn't know all the words so I replaced two of them. They sang "You are my consternation and my meditation" while I sang "You are my constipation and my medication". True story.
