First Line Meme

Hello loves! Another music meme, this one ganked from innocentsmith. I've listed a bunch of first lines of songs. See if you can guess the song from the line. Some are obvious, and some are obscure. If you guess three or more, I'll upload the song of your choice. Okay, actually, even if you don't even try to guess any and just ask me for music, I'll do it, 'cause I like sharing my music. :D

In other news, my Yuletide fic is going pretty well, and it's been quite an experience writing it. A struggle, but also fun. I've been getting tons of help and support from my writing buddies - you know who you are! - and I thank you very much for that. I would've torn all my hair out long before now without you guys. MWAH.

I'm also working on a fluffy smutty schmoopy Christmas J/W fic that will have NO PLOT WHATSOEVER. So there. :p

How are you all doing? Come say hi!

ETA: I'm striking out the ones that have been guessed. Any that aren't guessed by tomorrow or the day after I'll post the artist/title. This is fun! :)

ETA2: I've added some extra lines on the ones that are left. Some of them are obscure, but there's a few I'm surprised no one's gotten!

ETA3: Results up! And at msliz4857's request, a few of my favorites are here (at least, these are my favorites at this moment, although I really like all of them, and I'll post any that you request):

Jeff Buckley, Lover, You Should've Come Over
U2, One
Pink Floyd, Learning to Fly
Blind Faith, Can't Find My Way Home
Sting, Fragile
