i do dig this song quite a bit. (i realize it's a cover, but i like this version much better)

elvis costello - she

she may be the face I can't forget
the trace of pleasure or regret
may be my treasure or the prize i have to pay
she may be the song that summer sings
may be the chill that autumn brings
may be a hundred different things
within the measure of a day

she may be the beauty or the beast
may be the famine or the feast
may turn each day into a heaven or a hell
she may be the mirror of my dreams
a smile reflected in a stream
she may not be what she may seem
inside her shell

she, who always seems so happy in a crowd
whose eyes can be so private and so proud
no one's allowed to see them when they cry
she may be the love that cannot hope to last
may come to leap from shadows in the past
that i remember 'till the day i die

she may be the reason i survive
the why and wherefore I'm alive
the one i care for through the rough and ready years

me, i'll take the laughter and her tears
and make them all my souvenirs
and when she goes I've got to be
the meaning of my life is she
