Song lyrics that could be consang (but aren't)

on Wed 3 Jan - 14:15
This one came up as I was driving to work. "Child of Mine" from Fleetwood Mac's great Bare Trees album.

If you shift the context just a little... Smile

Little child of mine
You'll be loving like your little mother did
Heard it somewhere before
I won't leave you, no not like my father did

Any others?

Oh I'm glad you posted this, I have a few. And funny, you put the lyrics as quoted by him. But that's true too.
This may be my favourite, it appears in one of my stories: XYLØ - America
--------
Close your eyes
Take it slow
We will find a new place to go
This will all be over soon

And if the stripes keep us apart
I will write your name up in the stars
Keep myself close to you

They say we can stay in America
You can be free in America
But I'm sick of listening to everyone
I just want you
I just want you
I just want you
--------

And here's a song my friend showed me: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - This Love Is Fucking Right!
--------
n a dark room I can see you shining bright
you don't have to tell me twice, it's alright
in a dark room we can do just what we like
you're my sister, and this love is fucking right
--------

and I've heard Jim Croce's 'Time in a Bottle', he wrote for his son, shortly before he died.
It feels different, knowing that.

I think I have other ones too? but my music collection's cluttered, and I don't remember their names. But if I do! definitely will post them here

"Backstroke lover always hidin' 'neath the cover
'Till I talked to my daddy he say
He said, you ain't seen noting
'Till you're down on a muffin
Then you're sure to be a-changin' your ways

I met a cheerleader, was a real young bleeder
All the times I can reminisce
Ah the best thing lovin' with her sister and her cousin
Started with a little kiss, like this"

-------

For years and years I thought that Steven Tyler was saying "The best thing is loving with your sister and your cousin, and its started with a little kiss...."

And that’s another possibility. Misconstrued consang lyrics!

If I recall correctly, Steven Tyler had little or no contact with his biological daughter Liv until she was grown (she was essentially raised by her mother and another man). I think he also said some things that might be familiar to people who've experienced GSA. This has caused me to speculate.

Liv was totally in love with Steven Tyler, before she knew he was her father. Had posters of him up on the walls of her room. She thought that Todd Rundgren was her dad growing up. Her mom is the real life "Penny Lane."

Here's another, from Downton Abbey.
'Did I Make The Most of Loving You?'
I always thought the lyrics were "Two unlived lives with lies to live", which really felt about right for me & my sis. But, it seems they're not saying that.

Taylor's 'You Belong With Me', I can see that. It does fit.

I'm surprised how much "You Belong with Me" fits. I've heard it a number of times and never took it that way. They could also have been close friends throughout their lives, though unrelated.

I have more trouble with "I Think We're Alone Now". Being a older song, to me it feels much like a regular teenage couple that don't want adults knowing they're fooling around. But I do see where it has a rather illicit feel to it.

A song that sounds really consang to me is "Sister Golden Hair Surprise". I'm sure it's not, though.
