I'm having my students write today about their all-time favorite line/lyric from a song, and I'm planning to share one or two of PJ's with them. However, there are so many great ones, it's hard to choose. What should I share? Decisions, decisions...

    Hmmm...I always thought the line was: "Everything has chains, absolutely nothing's changed."

    "have you seen the way that tree bends?
    Does it inspire?
    Leaning out to catch the sun's rays
    A lesson to be applied
    Are you getting something out of this
    All encompassing trip?"

    Wrong lyrics, but either way you must have a thing for contradictions. :p

  • I turned my back, now there's no turning back


    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky, but why, why, why can't it be mine?


    If he can't sleep, how will he ever dream?


    I know I was born and I know that I'll die... the in between is mine.


    He who forgets will be destined to remember



    God, there's so many, I just keep thinking of more.

    If I wasn't teaching them, I'd probably think that too. But you'd be surprised how much they enjoy hearing their teacher talk about music, even if it's not the style they usually listen to.

    Right now many of them are IN LOVE with the ITW soundtrack!

    I teach 8th and 9th and they think they know everything:

    How about
    Searching hope, I'm shown the way to run straight
    pursuing the greater way for all,... human light.

    How I choose to feel,... Is how I am.
    How I choose to feel,... Is how I am.

    I will not lose my faith
    It's an inside job today

    Holding on, the light of night
    On my knees to rise and fix my broken soul

    Again.

    "Are you woman enough to be my man?"

    :D

    that and any line from either I Am Mine or Present Tense.
