Choice Lyrics -

He had a pickup truck, and thedevil's eyes
He stared at me and I felt a change
Time meant nothing, never would again

The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day 'til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way

6Foreigner - Feels like the first time

Choice Lyrics -

I have waited a lifetime, spent my time so foolishly
But now that I found you, together we'll make history

5Coldplay - Clocks

Off of Coldplay's second album, A Rush of Blood To the Head, Clocks was built off of a piano riff that popped into vocalist Chris Martin's head. When they wrote the song, they had already recorded 10 songs for their second album, so Clocks was pushed aside as something to work on for the third album. After the band's manager heard the song, he encouraged them to rework it and put it on A Rush of Blood To the Head.

Choice Lyrics -

Confusion never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks
