Lyrical lines - **Update

(I stole this from my friend Garnet.)

Because creativity elludes me tonight, and I thought this was fun, I decided to do it here. I set my ipod on random and have included here a few lines from the first 20 songs to pop up. See if you can figure out what songs they are from. As they are guessed, I'll strike out the lines and let you know the song title and artist, along with who guessed correctly first, and a link to their site. (Spiral, you aren't allowed to play - yet.) Have fun!

**Update - All done. Thanks all for playing!

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
