Berlin's, "Sex (I'm A..)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'm a boy!
Why They're Nonsensical:
This line doesn't make sense because lead singer Terri Nunn, a female, sings this line. Unlike other songs by this band (which feature vocals by Nunn only), this one also contains male vocals (I think it's bassist John Crawford); the man and woman alternate singing of the lines. However, in the "I'm a..." lines, the man only sings "I'm a man."

Berlin's, "Take My Breath Away"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
When the mirror crashed I called you
And turned to hear you say
If only for today
I am unafraid
Why They're Nonsensical:
So imagine you're sitting in a room and someone call you into the room to say, "Hey, this mirror just crashed." Your normal response would be "What were you doing when it crashed? Why are you telling me this? Do something! Clean it up!" I guess "If only for today" works because you'll have to go to Home Depot to buy a new freakin' mirror because your house is falling apart and your girlfriend likes to watch mirrors crash. I would be very afraid if I lived in a house with crashing mirrors.
