Yellow Wendy

Writer's Block: More than words

Which song lyrics send shivers down your spine and really hit you emotionally?

Overall, a whole bunch mostly by the same artists -- The Smiths, Bjork, The Cure... The lyrics are just so evocative and/or are expressing things so close to how I feel or have felt.

Zooming in on a few examples:

"Seasick, Yet Still Docked"
(Morrissey, in full miserable mode)

I am a poor freezingly cold soul
So far from where
I intended to go
Scavenging through life's very constant lulls
So far from where I'm determined to go

Wish I knew the way to reach the one I love
There is no way ...
Wish I had the charm to attract the one I love
But you see, I've got no charm
Mmm...
