Years ago I heard The Doors' song "Touch Me" on a car radio (or maybe it was a CD my stepdad was listening to... I don't remember). One of the lines was "Till the stars fall from the sky, for you and I". I remember it sounded really odd to me, and being the little pedant that I am, I immediately pointed out the error. My stepdad recognized the error, but said that it's just poetic license. But it still sounds strange to me, poetic or not.
