Song Names -> Song Titles Not Used as Lyrics -> E

Some songs have titles that aren't used in the lyrics, and end up becoming better known for their lyrics than their title. Bob Dylan's "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" is better known for the refrain "Everybody must get stoned" than it is for the title.

Electric Light Orchestra Across the Border "I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh / If I don't get to the border then I'll write" Across the Border is never used, although border is in the chorus, and across is used once during the lyrics. - Doug N.
Elton John Border Song Should be called "Holy Moses" since that's mentioned more than once in the song. - Paul Warren

Elvis Presley An American Trilogy The title has been assigned to this medley of three songs, none of which contains the medley's title (not surprisingly).

Emery Piggy Bank Lies This is where you say, "It's not what it looks like"
He's got his hands wrapped around your waist
And I want this - do you want it?
And I hate this, but you flaunt it
It sounds absurd, so I waited for my own eyes
To put a face on the person that built these lies
And I want this - do you want it?
Could've fooled me, 'cause I bought it - Jonathan S.
Emery Churches And Serial Killers There is a part of me that always sees the easy way out (Is this the easy way?)
If it doesn't hurt, then not another word (then take me back inside...)
You keep the reasons all but hidden, it feels like we will drown (is this is where we were...)
Do I hold on, when it's so far gone?
- Jonathan S.
