Description: The 400 Lyrics Challenge!

Okay, so I saw the original Lyrical Drabbles challenge, and decided to make my own. It took me a few months to get all these together (and another month to get them in order. Towards the end, I said "Screw it!" and just threw them together.) So I really hope I get responses to this. Your task? To write drabbles based on what these quotes inspire you to write! BUT there are RULES you must follow if you're going to do this!

- Use these lyrics in DIALOGUE, as in conversation.
- The characters MUST NOT sing these. They must be SPOKEN.
- Also, you cannot have the music playing or have the actual band there, singing. These lyrics are not to show any connection to the songs they are from.
- Please put the lyrics in bold, italics, or underline them to let me know where they are. I don't want to hunt for them.
- You are not required to do them all, though I'd love you forever if you do. Neither are you limited to just these lyrics. You may use as many as you like.
- You don't need to make the whole quote as one part of the conversation. Many of these lyrics are quite long. You may break them up and spread them out throughout the story.
- You are also not restricted to one lyrics per drabble. If you think you can make a conversation using every lyric, go ahead, as long as you build a story around it and make it comprehensive to the reader. Make it make sense!
- All characters, pairings, yaoi, yuri, OCs, Reader-Inserts, or otherwise are acceptable. If you must write smut, write it! If you feel a fluffy moment, go with it! If someone gets bashed, bash them! Go by how the lyrics make you feel.
- I will love you forever if you do any of the following characters for me: NoFace [Spirited Away], Axel [Kingdom Hearts], Basch [FF XII], Davy Jones [PotC], Jack Sparrow [PotC], Jack Skellington [TNBC], Greg House [House, MD], The Phantom [PotO], Jacob Black [Twilight]. Thanks~!

276. "I dreamed a dream in days gone by, when hope was high and life worth living."
277. "You have brought me to that moment when words run dry, to that moment when speech disappears into silence."
278. "You never wonder if I care. I'll always be there."
279. "I gave my heart away, it came back like a boomerang."
280. "Baby, maybe we should just sleep on it tonight and give our hearts just one more chance to change our minds."
281. "Say goodbye for the last time, 'cause every night to God I'd pray to give me strength to let you go before you went away."
282. "I dreamed I was missing. You were so scared, but no one would listen 'cause no one else cared."
283. "I can be the one. You can be mine too."
284. "You were gone. All this time you just didn't know it yet."
285. "Who do you think you're kidding? He's the earth and Heaven to you."
286. "Blamin' all of my roots, I showed up in boots and ruined your black-tie affair."
287. "Keep doin' what you're doin', I'mma make you mine."
288. "I feel I'm cursed with a thirst for loving with access denied."
289. "Do you know what you do to me? Everything inside of me is wanting you and needing you."
290. "I'll never let this go. I'm in a different state every night. We're kept together by highways and telephone lines."
291. "Your spirit and my voice, in one combined."
292. "I toasted you, said 'Honey, we may be through, but you'll never hear me complain'."
293. "On a lover's leap, with a freeway view, sitting on my hood, thinkin' about you."
294. "Bigger things came from smaller things, baby. Yeah, maybe we are a little crazy. But I see that look in your eye, and I can tell you're ready to roll. I just need to know. How far do you wanna go? How far do you wanna go?"
295. "Guess this means you take back all you said before like how much you wanted anyone but me."
296. "Framed pictures start to be put on the walls, constant visits while I'm out on the road."
297. "She tried to use me, now she's on to someone new."
298. "I'm strong on the surface, not all the way through."
299. "When will the blood begin to race? The sleeping bud burst into bloom? When will the flames at last consume us?"
300. "I need you like a lighthouse on the coast."
301. "I never knew I had another side, but girl, with you I'm Jekyll and Hyde."
302. "You take me by my hand and you're leading me blind."
303. "I know it's getting late. Let the music play. It's ok to stay the night."
304. "How can I decide what's right when you're clouding up my mind?"
305. "Said you'd never come back, but here you are again."
306. "Well, I guess I was wrong, I just don't belong, but then I've been there before."
307. "I can't wait 'til we meet again."
308. "Let your soul take you where you long to be. Only then can you belong to me."
309. "When the lights are down low and you nibble on my neck, I can't be held responsible for what might happen next. No tellin' what I'll do when I get you in my hands. With a woman like you, I'm a dangerous man."
310. "Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you."
311. "Hearts break too fast when they're sentimental. Can't stay, won't last when it's love at first sight, so why are my convictions blinded by your spotlight?"
312. "I am a man who will fight for your honor. I'll be the hero that you're dreaming of."
313. "Awake, I hope I'm on my way to a coast where I know the roads like the back of my hand. Familiar landscapes."
314. "Think of me. Think of me fondly when we've said goodbye."
315. "Well I bumped into your best friend; said you're talkin' and thinkin' of leavin' everything you've ever known. How far do you wanna go?"
316. "The last one out is number nine, but here I am, biding time again, and waiting on train number 10."
317. "You have come here in pursuit of your deepest urge, in pursuit of that wish which 'til now has been silent."
318. "I've never been perfect, but neither have you."
319. "Well it's midnight, damn right. We're wound up too tight."
320. "Ain't no ride like a 65' Mustang. Ain't no cool like James Dean cool. Ain't no man alive tough as old John Wayne and ain't no woman like you."
321. "My shame, my self-control has suffered enough, and everybody wants to be loved!"
322. "This was never the way I planned. Not my intention."
323. "You spin me right round, baby, right round."
324. "Closed off from love, I didn't need the pain."
325. "I didn't mean it when I said I didn't love you so."
326. "The hour has begun. Eyes have now opened."
327. "In your mind, you've already succumbed to me, dropped all defenses; completely succumbed to me."
328. "She said, 'I bet you don't remember me' and I said, 'Only every other memory'."
329. "I wonder what life would be like if my shoulder could bear the weight of all this adding up I feel."
330. "I let you take me from 'This is forever' to 'That's just the way love goes'."
331. "I won't soothe your pain. I won't ease your strain."
332. "If I can't have you, then I don't want anyone."
333. "I won't ask for much this Christmas, I won't even wish for snow."
334. "I'm not comfortable in my own skin; I'm ashamed to be myself."
335. "Breaking up's the best thing we'll ever do; couldn't go back even if I wanted to."
336. "Yeah the fool on the hill is beatin' down another night."
337. "And I know that this is new like your first day of school, and you're feeling awkward like you miss your home, and it leaves you with an empty feeling."
338. "Go away from my window. Leave at your own chosen speed."
339. "I never meant to hurt you. You know how much I love you. I know you love me so, but it's time to let me go."
340. "I'm just gonna keep on waiting underneath the mistletoe."
341. "It starts with one."
342. "I never knew that everything was falling through."
343. "Every night in my dreams, I see you, I feel you. That is how I know you go on."
344. "This smoking gun of a mouth of mine has many victims to its name. But this time it was your words that killed me."
345. "I walked in and there you were, looking better than I ever remembered. Smiling that smile like nothing ever happened."
346. "Where do you go when you're lonely? I'll follow you when the stars go blue."
347. "With me is where you belong. Right here, right here. Don't leave me."
348. "Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime and never let go 'til we're gone."
349. "You never even knew about the heartache I've been going through."
350. "Tale as old as time, true as it can be. Barely even friends, then somebody bends unexpectedly."
351. "I was so high I didn't recognize the fire burning in her eyes."
352. "I feel insane every single time I'm asked to compromise."
353. "Soon, I'll be back from all this work, and I'll make love to you."
354. "Don't you hear me whisper in your ear, 'Forget him, you're what I'm waiting for'?"
355. "I was a quick wet boy diving too deep for coins."
356. "We're no strangers to love. You know the rules and so do I."
357. "You have my heart in your hands. You have my heart so don't let it go."
358. "No, no, no, it ain't me, babe. It ain't me you're looking for, babe."
359. "If you wanna live, let live."
360. "We are what we're supposed to be, illusions of your fantasy."
361. "He was a boy, she was a girl. Can I make it any more obvious?"
362. "I ain't no high-class broad."
363. "A full commitments what I'm thinking of."
364. "I can't get to you. I swear I've tried. If I can't get to you, I'll never love again!"
365. "I will always love you. I will never leave you alone."
366. "There's a place that I go that nobody knows, where the rivers flow and I call it 'home'."
367. "When they start talking, she starts walking right back to my arms. She can turn every head, but she never lets it go to her heart."
368. "Just then I found a note in my pocket. It read, 'I don't ever want to see you again', and I guess that explains why I can't remember the rest of the night."
369. "Take me away to better days. Take me away, a hiding place."
370. "What we do is what you wish to do."
371. "I'm a stranger and someone left me for dead and I need to decide what to do next."
372. "Your smile of beauty hides such fear."
373. "Northern dolls say 'Pretty please', dot their 'i's and cross their 't's."
374. "I'm doing this tonight. You're probably gonna start a fight. I know this can't be right."
375. "You wished that you could start this over, instead you left me in a coma."
376. "And if your heart stops beating, I'll be here wondering 'Did you get what you deserve'?"
377. "I never cared how I dressed before, but I cared that night. Anticipation ran through my bones and my clothes never fit right."
378. "They weren't just saying 'goodbye'. They weren't just seeing me off. They were just making sure that I don't forget where I'm from. 'Go out there and do your family proud, son'."
379. "You possess heaven. Your lonely reflections are not what I see."
380. "Have you heard the news that you're dead?"
381. "I'm some respects I suspect you've got a respectable side."
382. "What happened to our love? It used to be so good."
383. "Don't you believe everything you hear, darling. I've never lied before."
384. "That was such a short goodbye. Never get to say exactly what I want in front of you. I always fall apart at the worst thoughts of crashing down."
385. "Look into my eyes and you will see what you mean to me."
386. "I smile up to the sky and know I'll be alright."
387. "You don't have to settle for me at all. I'll never be the one you want. I'll never ever be the one under your arms."
388. "When you're gone, though I try, how can I carry on?"
389. "I try and try to forget you, girl, but it's just too hard to do, every time you do that thing you do."
390. "Look at you, sittin' on that tailgate, all barefoot, beautiful, and brown-eyed."
391. "When winter comes in summer, when there's no more forever, that's when I'll stop loving you."
392. "I don't know if I can yell any louder. How many times have I kicked you out of here or said something insulting?"
393. "You've got a piece of me, and honestly my life would suck without you."
394. "I know you'll quiver when fingers touch your side, but it all coincides someway."
395. "I realize that there is all this doubting, things we're both scared about that we'll never see them coming."
396. "Oh, can't you see that for worse or for better, we're better together? Please, just come back home. No, don't say that you're sorry, and I won't say I told you so."
397. "My heartbeat beats me senselessly."
398. "Just watchin' you breathin's blowin' me away. All I can think about tonight..."
399. "Oh I should have never laid eyes on you. Now I'm tangled up. What can I do?"
400. "Sometimes it's like we're deep in nothing but love. The slightest thing can grow so foolishly. Remind me, please."

End note: If you know what song the lyric is from, please let us know in the author's note of your story. I picked all my favorite lyrics from my favorite songs and artists, and you'll get brownie points if you know who or what I'm talking about. I'm also going to be writing drabbles for this challenge, in case you need anything to go by. Happy writing!

UPDATE! Thanks very much to mai_beyblader_17 for noticing that 197 and 287 were the same. Number 287 will be changed. Thanks again!
