I love songs and I love lyrics. Sometimes they don't even necessarily make sense, or there's no context, but it doesn't matter. They just fit. Here's a great song I came across as I was writing my work in progress (a love story).

El Condor Pasa by Simon and Garfunkel

I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail.
Yes I would.
If I could,
I surely would.
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail.
Yes I would.
If I only could,
I surely would.

CHORUS
Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone
A man gets tied up to the ground
He gives the world
Its saddest sound,
Its saddest sound.

I'd rather be a forest than a street.
Yes I would.
If I could,
I surely would.

I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet,
Yes I would.
If I only could,
I surely would.
