in

Sometimes you want to run away Sometimes you think you do But you never had a dream like this before And you don't want to ask for more Sometimes you leave a mark Before you know the score

A Quote by Ric Ocasek on danger, imagination, justice, listening, relationships, songs, thinking, and words

The best thing you can do for a song is to hear it on the radio and to imagine what it could mean to you and then kinda forget the words. Just imagine how you felt when you heard it, if it was one of your songs. If it became one of your songs. If it meant whatever it meant for you and as soon as you see the visual, you get a rapid eye movement relationship with the song instead of an imaginative one. I think that can be dangerous because I don't think I'd want to be listening to a song on the radio and thinking about the video. Whatever that one interpretation was

A Quote by Ric Ocasek on friendship, insanity, life, and people

They're caught where there's no way out or where you can't see out. What are you going to do about it? I don't have the answer. If I did there would be no insane asylums. But I see a lot of people, a lot of my friends in the same predicament. Many times in my life, I was there myself.

A Quote by Ric Ocasek on country, environment, happiness, heaven, love, society, songs, and trying

This environment [New York] is heaven. I love walking down the street and seeing faces and drama and happiness and sadness and dirt and cleanliness. I could never be a country person, sitting around trees trying to write a song. I would rather be in the middle of society, whether it's growing or crumbling

A Quote by Ric Ocasek on facts, justice, people, songs, time, and words

Once they're on paper, they're gone. I like to do as much with the words, as far as image goes, so that it's really left open for a lot of things, even though I remember a specific impression of something I had at the time. I can't say a song is about this or that; in fact, I wouldn't even want to. I just prefer to have people live it anyway they want. Because it's theirs after that. There's nothing I can do about it anymore
