Take my quiz, and win a prize!

Let's see how well you know music, or at least the music that I listen to. I have listed sixteen beginnings to songs. If you answer the most correctly, and the fastest, I will buy a year of LJ for you! You have one week starting now. So, let the competition begin!

1) You hurt me baby
I flinch so when you do
Your kisses scourge me
Hyssop in your perfume
Oh, I do not fear you
And slave I only use
As a word to describe the special way I feel for you

2) It is complete now - two ends of time
are neatly tied
A one-way street, she's walking to the
end of the line
And there she meets the faces she sees in
her heart and mind

3) It doesn't hurt me.
Do you want to feel how it feels?
Do you want to know that it doesn't hurt me?
Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making?
You, it's you and me.

4) Every time we do this
I fall for her
Wave after wave after wave
It's all for her
"I know this can't be wrong" I say
(And I'll lie to keep her happy)
"As long as I know that you know
That today I belong right here with you"

5) I thought I'd found a reason to live
Just like before when I was a child
Only to find dreams made of sand
Would just fall apart and slip through my hands

6) Guess the dreams always end
They don't rise up just descend
But I don't care anymore
I've lost the will to want more
I'm not afraid - not at all
I watch them all as they fall
But I remember when we were young

7) You're everything
That's why I cling to you
When I emerge
My thoughts converge to you
To you
The world is so small
Compared to you
And everybody's wrong
Compared to you
To you

8) I'm so alone tonight
My bed feels larger than when I was small
Lost in memories, lost in all the sheets and all old pillows
So alone tonight, miss you more than I will let you know
Miss the outline of your back, miss you breathing down my neck
All out to get you, once again, they're all out to get you, once again

9) Under a blackened sky
far beyond the glaring streetlights
sleeping on empty dreams
the vultures lie in wait.

You lay down beside me then
you were with me every waking hour
so close I could feel your breath.

10) It's like there's a straight way you know, you know
I've told you before it's as thin as ice
As thin as the razor snow
Don't freeze in the snow
Don't bake in the heat
I'll be your breath
There's a place where we can meet

11) staring at the sea...
will she come?
is there hope for me
after all is said and done
anything at any price
all of this for you
all the spoils of a wasted life
all of this for you...

12) In the shadow cast as you were leaving
In the beauty of the ending day
There is always something to return to
Something you allow
To slip away

13) Oh, can't anybody see,
We've got a war to fight,
Never found our way,
Regardless of what they say.

How can it feel, this wrong,
From this moment,
How can it feel, this wrong.

14) All alone now
Except for the memories
Of what we had
And what we knew
Every time I try to leave it behind me,
I see something that reminds me of you

15) I know what youre doing, I see it all too clear
I only taste the saline when I kiss away your tears
You really had me going, wishing on a star
But the black holes that surround you are heavier by far

16) Last night I dreamt
That somebody loved me
No hope, no harm -
just another false alarm
Last night I felt
real arms around me
No hope, no harm -
just another false alarm

Good luck to all.
