Revenge of the lyrics

Not that I think anyone cares, but here are the answers to the song lyrics quiz I posted last Thursday. The ones in boldface were never identified. I'm a little surprised no one got the one from Mary Poppins.

  1. He rules a crowded nation inside his mind - 10,000 Maniacs, "Not the Man" (identified by caerwynx)
  2. And now she's in me, always with me - Ben Folds, "Tiny Dancer" (caerwynx and pidgehuss)
  3. The promise of love is hard to ignore - Crowded House, "Private Universe"
  4. You were right about the stars; each one is a setting sun - Wilco, "Jesus, Etc." (hcwoodward)
  5. Her fortress is a faithful heart - Cathedral Choral Society, "I Vow To Thee, My Country"
  6. Summer came and passed away, hardly seemed to last a day - "ELO, "It’s Over"
  7. I've been so lonely here, so lonely - Dar Williams, "Mortal City"

  9. I wished I had somebody special to blame - Fountains of Wayne, "Please Don’t Rock Me Tonight"
  10. Why'd you have to break all my heart? - Rufus Wainwright, "14th Street" (hcwoodward)
  11. Come on, baby, don't be cold as ice. - The Beatles, "One After 909" (spidey_88)
  12. What about the things you need, versus the things you don't have? - Al Green, "Give It Everything"
  13. She knows just how to make me laugh when I feel blue - Elvis Presley, "She’s Not You"
  14. And when from death I'm free, I'll sing and joyful be - Word of Mouth Chorus, "What Wondrous Love Is This?" (kls)
