You say it's all in my head
And the things I think just don't make sense
So where you been then? Don't go all coy
Don't turn it round on me like it's my fault
See I can see that look in your eyes
The one that shoots me each and every time.
You grace me with your cold shoulder
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her.
You shower me with words made of knives
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her.
--
Cold Shoulder, written by Adele and Sacha Skarbek

At eighteen the heart shoots like a pebble from a slingshot
and the head doesn't sit on the shoulder.

 
Nazim Hikmet
 

Iíve been walking my mind to an easy time,
My back turned towards the sun.
Lord knows the cold wind blows itíll turn your head around.
Well, thereís hours of time on the telephone line,
To talk about things to come.
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground.

 
James Taylor
 

Once upon a time...
When the cold wind that blows,
when the cold wind that blows in my heart,
it was a summer breeze and she would meet me in Chinatown,
for opium and tea
and she always brought me flowers
but I spared you those old ballads
All those songs I couldnít play
But every giro day sheíd dress me like a lady boy
And take me high out of the way
Donít let the horse chase the new deal away, no
If we make love in the morning
I see your eyes look like two marbles in your head

 
Peter Doherty
 

And he walks round blocks and blocks looking for the door of the humming tinsel windowed skyscraper, round blocks and blocks and still no door. Every time he closes his eyes the dream has hold of him, every time he stops arguing audibly with himself in pompous reasonable phrases the dream has hold of him. Young man to save your sanity you've got to do one of two things... Please mister where's the door to the building? Round the block? Just round the block... one of two unalienable alternatives: go away in a dirty soft shirt or stay in a clean Arrow collar. But what's the use of spending your whole life fleeing the City of Destruction? What about your unalienable right, Thirteen Provinces? His mind unreeling phrases, he walks on doggedly. There's nowhere in particular he wants to go. If only I still had faith in words. (pp. 365-366)

 
John Dos Passos
 

I don't make sense in this interview. I don't make sense in photo shoots. I don't make sense unless I'm making music. And the music is literally the only reason I'm here. I know I'm not the tall, dark, handsome rock star guy. I know I'm not the most charismatic person. I know I'm not that interesting or funny. It really is about me being a musician and a songwriter. That is the only reason I exist here.
