Topanga Canyon—John Phillips

“Oh Mary, I’m in the deep waters/ And it’s way, way over my head/ Everyone thought I was smarter/ Than to be this dead”

Between the Bars—Elliott Smith

“Drink up baby, look at the stars/ I’ll kiss you again between the bars”

Shelter From the Storm—Bob Dylan

“Well I’m living in a foreign country but I’m bound to cross the line/ Beauty walks a razor’s edge someday I’ll make it mine/ If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born/ ‘Come in’ she said/ ‘I’ll give you shelter from the storm.'”
