Name that tune

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

But I only get as far,
as the next whiskey bar,
I buy another cheap cigar,
and I'll see you every night

Tom Waits, Muriel

"Life springs eternal
On a gaudy neon street
Not that I care at all
I spent the best part of my losing streak
In an Army Jeep
For what I can't recall
Oh I'm banging on my TV set
And I check the odds
And I place my bet
I pour a drink
And I pull the blind
And I wonder what I'll find"

ugh sheryl crowe

escaping through the lily fields
i came across an empty place
it trembled and exploded
and left a bus stop in its place
the bus drove by and i got on
That's when it all began
There was cowboy Neal
At the wheel
Of a bus to never-ever land
Thou may'st break, but shalt not bend me

"that's it for the other one"

::

so i'll cross my heart and hope to die
before, i have, the chance to lie
to you my dear
who i wish no harm
i know the end will turn out wrong

see i've been known to fall in love
but sometimes, love just isn't enough
my heart will stray
before too long

so please listen when i sing this song

Apparently your song lyrics are just too gosh darn difficult and my conscience won't let me Google for it. DOH! Somebody figure this out or give us a hint, dmbgg!

They aren't popular, so I guess it might have been too tough.

its city and color's forgive me... i've heard that around you but never known the name so now im listening to it
how about

Or when it's getting late and rainy out in New York State
You hang a louie off the thru-way
And you go and grab yourself a cheeseburger
At the little gem diner off the six niner

Diner my shiny shiny love
In the night you're all I'm thinking of
Diner my shiny shiny love
Thou may'st break, but shalt not bend me

And that is Diner by Martin Sexton.

Let's have a real one...

"oh i dont know the sufferings of people outside my front door.
and i join the oppressors of those i choose to ignore.
im trading comfort for human life
and that's not just murder, it's suicide.
and this too shall be made right."

Allow others a chance to play, lol.

But yes it is D-Webb, Google it and you will surely come up with the answer.

Here's one for you non-googlers. Googlers, take off, eh? :)

In Liverpool, On Sunday
No traffic
On the avenue
The light is pale and thin
Like you
No sound, down
In this part of town
Except for the boy in the belfry
He's crazy, he's throwing himself
Down from the top of the tower
Like a hunchback in heaven
He's ringing the bells in the church
For the last half an hour
He sounds like he's missing something
Or someone that he knows he can't
Have now and if he isn't
I certainly am

Yeah I want to throw you out into space.
I want to do whatever it takes, takes, takes.
Well every time I pull you close,
Push my face into your hair,
Cream rinse and tobacco smoke,
That sickly scent is always, always there.
