A theme applies to the artists of all of the songs, including the tie-
breakers. However, for a few of these, the theme applies figuratively
rather than literally.


Blindly searching for lyrics on the Internet is not in the spirit
of the GOLQs, and we disapprove of this practice.

Entries are due by 5:00 p.m. EDT (GMT-4) on Sunday, May 31, 2015.

If I were you
I'd take a permanent vacation

I've been in this town so long
It's back in the city
I've been taken for lost and gone
And unknown for a long, long time

Now I'm crying
But deep down inside
Well I did it to him
Now it's my turn to die

The room will change today
I have no place to stay
Thinking about the subway

And I knew (I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew)
She had made me happy (happy, happy)
(She had made me very happy)
Flowers in her hair (in her hair)
Flowers everywhere (everywhere, everywhere)

It ain't me
It ain't me
I'm no Senator's son

And I'm so glad we made it
So glad we made it

One thing isn't very clear, my love
Should the teacher stand so near, my love
Graduation's almost here, my love

Never had you on my mind
Now you're there all the time

Will cause you pain
Although you love them
They'll stop you just the same

People, they rush everywhere
Each with their own secret care

Open up your arms
And let me waltz on in
Open up your heart
And let me live again

I, I don't want
To ever say goodnight
I need you
I want you near me

I'm not content to be with you in the daytime
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time

Let your hair down, girl
Let it hang down on me

Honey in the morning
Honey in the evening
Honey at suppertime
So be my little honey
And love me all the time

I love the way you always treat me tenderly
But darling most of all

So long, my honey
Goodbye, my dear

There's a beat for you
In every toast to the wine

Lonely rivers sigh
Wait for me, wait for me
I'll be comin' home
Wait for me

Look at how they wobble
He's the best in town
I think I'm in trouble
She forgets that I'm around

I want him
And I need him
And someday, some way, woh-woh-woh
I'll meet him

Your life is so lonely
Like a child without a toy
Then a miracle: a boy
And that's called glad

Over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle in the night

The tears are always cloudin' your eyes
When you're without love


Now all the boys in my block
Try to bop the blues
They dance all night til daylight
In their boppin' shoes
They danced so long
They danced away their blues

In my room
Nothin' but gloom
Nothin' but lonely misery
Nothin' but pain and a memory
And I'm alone
