Questionable Lyrics

Here's another lyric game. Guess the artist/song that each question belongs to.

1. Am I wrong? Have I run too far to get home?

2. Does anybody know a way that a body could get away?


3. Did I miss out on you?

4. How do you do it - make me feel like I do?

5. Has anybody wasted tears on loneliness that everyone becomes when they're not alright?

6. You don't know which page to turn to, do you?

7. Do they just mean to be mean?

8. Hows' your boy been?

9. Oh can you feel it? Do you believe it?


10. Is there another reason for your stain?

11. How dare you?! How old are you now, anyway?

12. Will the wind ever remember the names it has blown in the past?

13. What's your name? Who's your daddy? Is he rich like me?

14. Where'd you get your information from, huh? D'ya think that you can front when revelation comes?

15. Do you take plight on my tongue like lead? Do you fall gracefully into bed anymore?

16. Don't you think that you need somebody? Don't you think that you need someone?

17. Have you seen your mother, girl? Has she gone away?


18. Who was I to come between a whore and her money?

19. Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?

20. If you could make everybody poor so that you could be rich, would you do it?


21. Could we leave before it gets bad?

22. You really think you're in control?

23. Where do I go to fall from grace?

24. Do you want to find alligator cowboy boots they just put on sale?

25. Where have all my friends gone?

Good work so far, gang. Jeff, your oldness really worked to your advantage this time. And all that time you spent learning Soul Asylum tablatures.

I'm awarding the point to Alison for the Zombie's "Time of the Season", but disallowing Casey's New Pornographers guess, as she picked the wrong song. From the wrong album.
