What makes a good song GREAT are good lyrics…. I LOVE lyrics.  With that – I’m going to start (and try to sustain) a ‘weekly lyric’ post – I’m setting out to make this as un-profound as possible, simply posting a lyric/week from any genre of music that has struck a chord with me (or that has come up in conversation with someone).

From Shane and Shane‘s Christmas album Glory in the Highest and the song “Born to Die”

He said, “You don’t take my life.

You won’t take my life.

You don’t take my life…

I lay it down.”
