Like a circle in a spiral Like a wheel within a wheel Never ending or beginning On an ever-spinning reel As the images unwind Like the circles that you find In the windmills of your mind.— Michel Legrand
Devotion Popular Song quotations
We found love in a hopeless place.
So I'm not very popular here with those inside the system, as you might guess. I never wanted to be.
Go on and try to tear me down I will be rising from the ground
Blue moon you saw me standing alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own.
How many times can a man turn his head, and pretend that he just doesn't see?
You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss, A sigh is just a sigh;
The fundamental things apply, As time goes by.
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, No escape from reality. Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see, I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy, Because I'm easy come, easy go, Little high, little low, Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.
If you don't know the blues... there's no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music.
Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels The dizzy dancing way you feel As every fairy tale comes real I've looked at love that way.
Reality TV is sleazy, it is manipulative. It is as momentary as anything in popular culture.
The road goes on forever and the party never ends.
Love can touch us one time And last for a life time And never let go till We're gone.

When my soul was in the lost-and-found You came along to claim it.
There's beauty in the silver singing river There's beauty in the sunrise in the sky But none of these and nothing else can match the beauty That I remember in my true love's eyes
Written in these walls are the stories that I can't explain
But, in fairness to them, too, the popular song per se is really a pretty shallow medium to perform in.
In your eyes the light the heat in your eyes I am complete in your eyes I see the doorway to a thousand churches in your eyes the resolution of all the fruitless searches in your eyes I see the light and the heat in your eyes oh, I want to be that complete I want to touch the light, the heat I see in your eyes
I wish I could write a beautiful book to break those hearts that are soon to cease to exist: a book of faith and small neat worlds and of people who live by the philosophies of popular songs.
If you listen to a lot of the songs that are popular now, there's very little melody in there. People love the beat. But to musicians, it's melody, because we understand how elusive it is and how hard it is to hold.
Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam, Be it ever so humble, There's no place like home.
Joy to the world All the boys and girls now Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea Joy to you and me
Send the haters all my love. X and O.

To dream the impossible dream, to reach the unreachable star!
Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a coolibar tree, And he sang as he sat and waited for his billy-boil, You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.
All so convinced that you're following your heart cause your mind don't control what it does sometimes.
I've seen fire and I've seen rain I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend But I always thought that I'd see you again.
I'm so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose.
Clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose. Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night. You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light. And I will remember you. Will you remember me? Don't let your life pass you by. Weep not for the memories.
