Name That Song, round 7

Yes, folks, it's that time of year again. It's time for Name that Song, with your host, boggyb!

I'm using the standard ruleset for this:
Step 1: Put your media player on random.
Step 2: Post the first few lines from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly. Wait a few days before posting the answers to give everyone a chance.
Using a search engine is, as always, not permitted. Violaters will be snarked at.

Bring on the wall lyrics!

Oh, if I could only get some sleep,
Creaky noises make my skin creep,
I need to get some sleep,
I can't get no sleep...

Look at the red, red changes in the sky
Look at the separation in the borderline
But don't look at everything here inside
And be afraid, afraid to speak your mind

#3 (guessed by allegramente)
Lacrimosa dies illa,
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus

#4 (guessed by ariskari)
I watch how the moon sits in the sky on a dark night,
Shining with the light from the sun
But the sun doesn't give the light to the moon assuming,
The moon's gonna owe it one

I worked my days on a Galway Farm
In the sun and rain and wind and storm
But once a year I'll chance my arm
And cross the sea to England

There were two sisters side by side
Sing I-dum, sing I-day
There were two sisters side by side
The boys are born for me
The eldest for young Johnny cried
I'll be true unto my love if he'll be true to me

In this world you tried
Not leaving me alone behind
There's no other way
I prayed to the gods let him stay
The memories ease the pain inside,
Now I know why

Parce mihi domine, nihil enim sunt dies mei
Quid est homo, quia magnificas eum

Spare me your judgements and spare me your dreams
'Cause recently mine have been tearing my seams
I sit alone in this winter clarity which clouds my mind

The king and his men
Stole the queen from her bed
And bound her in her bones
The seas be ours
And by the powers
Where we will we'll roam

For the pain and the sorrow caused by my mistakes
Won't repent to a mortal whom is all to blame
Now I know I won't make it
There will be a time we'll get back our freedom
They can't break what's inside
I'll face it cause it's the heart of everything

Baby's got an atom bomb,
A mother fuckin' atom bomb,
Twenty two mega tonne,
I ain't ever seen so much fun

#13 (guessed by allegramente)
Dies irae! Dies illa
Solvet saeclum in favilla
Teste David cum Sibylla!

True Thomas sat on Huntley bank
And he beheld a lady gay
A lady that was brisk and bold
Come riding o'er the ferny brae

Is this a question of time
Is this a question of space
I've been out of my mind
I'm coming up for air
To work it out

White fool, come to a new land
There's a dark moon on the sand
Then nothing was ever the same again
This land is in their hands

I see love, I can see passion
I feel danger, I feel obsession
Don't play games with the ones who love you

Hey was there something that you wanted to say?
I don't know what to do when you look that way
Cigarettes and tequila at six
And the sun going down on our life as it is

I have a wish, just a silly old wish
I have a dream, just a silly old dream

Like the wind, hovering high
Like the clouds drifting by
We can fly
We can fly

She read her fairy tales
And brought the words to life
Found a friend she'd waited for

Working in the rain cutting down wood
Didn't do my little brother much good
Lost two fingers in a chainsaw bite
All he does now is drink and fight
Sells a bit of grass hots up cars
Talks of travel never gets far
Loves his kids left his wife
An everyday story of country life

Hakuna Matata!
What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata!
Ain't no passing craze

H-eight is the one for me
It gives me all I need
And helps me co-exist with the chill

Turn around and smell what you don't see
Close your eyes… it is so clear
Here's the mirror, behind there is a screen
On both ways you can get in

#26 (guessed by ariskari)
Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head

One more time
I gonna celebrate
Oh yeah, all right
Don't stop the dancing

#28 (guessed by allegramente)
Imtheochaidh soir is siar
A dtáinig ariamh an ghealach is an ghrian

Consider the flowers of the field in their beauty
More lovely that even the clothes of a king
Consider the birds of the air
Flying high, flying free
You are precious to me

The grid
A digital frontier
I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer

Lines are now closed!
