Everybody Knows (Leonard Cohen):

 

"Everybody knows you've been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes"

"River of Souls"  by Dan Fogelberg

 

"I take my place along the shore
And I wait for the tide
It seems I've passed this way before
In an earlier time
To every man the mystery
Sings a different song
He fills his page of history
Dreams his dreams and is gone"

Since You Went Away (Monkees)

 

"You said you couldn't tell the doormat from my face
You said if I had brains I would pawn them
Could be I've finally gotten up off of my thumbs
Could be that you're the one that was on them. . . .

You said without your help I couldn't tie my shoes
You said without a doubt I'd be stranded
Could be that you were right and I had to fly the coop
Could be the eagle finally has landed"

Piano Man - Billy Joel

 

And the waitress is practicing politics

As the businessmen slowly get stoned

Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness

But it's better than drinkin' alone

Huddle by the puddles in the shadows where the drains run"

Knife Edge - Emerson, Lake, and Palmer.  Just a step, cries the sad man. Take a look down at the madman.  https://youtu.be/XwIehM-x6kA

Piano Man - Billy Joel

 

John at the bar is a friend of mine

He gets me my drinks for free

And he's quick with a joke

Or to light up my smoke

But there's some place that he'd rather be

You can find clever lyrics in most songs written by David Bowie. I was watching a documentary about his early work, and how Space Oddity was the song brought him to the forefront of the pop music scene. It was mentioned how the song characterizes the pop culture and commercialization of all things outer space after the Apollo moon landing in 1969. The entire song is brilliant, but outstanding line that they pulled from the song was this one . . . 

 

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
