the 2nd annual (plus one day) lyrics quiz!

OK. Here's the deal. Whoever answers the most correctly within one week gets a paid year of LJ again! Email me your answers at sff90@hotmail.com with the header of MUSIC QUIZ, otherwise I will think it's spam and delete it. Good luck, and if you answer all sixteen correctly, I will raise my opinion of you by two whole points!

1) Did you see the frightened ones?
Did you hear the falling bombs?
The flames are all gone, but the pain lingers on.

2) all of your life you've lived in a world as pure as eden's sixth day
now all you've been allowed is taken away
they will not let you be so proud
and you have felt the fear growing inside
protest follows far and wide they'll see how long
it will take til you fall from so much denied
your soul it aches relentless from the fear
that they will never guess so unfair that
they can make you feel so small
and the fear you know is real

3) love is trembling
trembling like the little bird we hold within our hands
love is bending
bending towards the worried brow
here, let me wipe away your tears
love is kneeling
above the broken body the ever-upturned face
love is missing
all the words are broken, help me
I cannot find my way
no, I can't
I need you love
come on love

4) Throughout our wanderings in a land of lies.
We fell from gods grace into a sea of storms.
In self renovation, celebration of love.
These both are virtues we seem to have left behind.

5) everything that matters is gone
all the hands of hope have withdrawn
could you try to help me hang on?
it runs...

6) Do you think I'm beautiful?
Or do you think I'm evil?
Will you take me for a ride?
The one that never ends
Too loose, too tight, too dark, too bright
A lie, the truth, which one shall I use?
If the lie succeeds
Then you'll know what I mean
When I tell you I have secrets
To attend

7) There's no time for us
There's no place for us
What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us

8) Still
Breathless and on again
Inside today
Beside me today
Around broken in two

9) Fool enough to almost be it
Cool enough to not quite see it
Pick your pockets full of sorrow
And run away with me tomorrow

10) Hot tears flow as she recounts
Her favourite worded token
Forgive me please for hurting so
Don't go away heartbroken no

11) Never know how I wanted to feel
Never quite said what Iwanted to say to you
Never quite managed the words to explain to you
Never quite knew how to make them believable
And now the time has gone
Another time undone

12) so i'll walk the plank and i'll jump with a smile
if i'm gonna go down
i'm gonna do it with style
and you won't see me surrender
you won't hear me confess
'cuz you've left me with nothing
but i've worked with less

13) Deck the halls
I'm young again
I'm you again
racing turtles
the grapefruit is winning
seems I keep getting this story twisted
so where's Neil when you need him

14) you've got the most unbelievable blue eyes I've ever seen
you've got me almost melting away as we lay there under blue sky
with pure white stars exotic sweetness a magical time

15) I never realised the lengths I'd have to go
All the darkest corners of a sense I didn't know
Just for one moment I heard someone call
Looked beyond the day in hand - there's nothing there at all

16) I'm hearing right and wrong so clearly
there must be more than this
it's only in uncertainty
that we're naked and alive
I hear it through the rattle of a streetcar
hear it through the things you said
I can get so scared
listen to the wind
