What's your favorite lyric from a song?


Just curious what stays with people...

To quote from only part of my favorite lyricist's song:

Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Bob's still going strong.

Title: Into The Blue

...

Gasoline rainbows swimming in the puddles in the street
Whichever way the wind blows we've got the whole damn
World crawling at our feet
Laughing canyons and everglades
Candle flames and razor blades
Dancing through the poppy fields, hand in hand we cascade

Into the blue, only with you
Into the blue, only with you, into the blue

There's a singing dwarf on the streets of new york
There's a shuffling man with plastic on his head
There's a preacher woman crying in the traffic
Crying for the living crying for the dead
The waste of it all, the waste of it all
And there's more at stake than we could ever know
'cos when we're together we always fall
Into the blue, only with you
Into the blue, only with you, into the blue

Title: Love Me To Death


Let me come inside your ivory tower
Let me come inside your hallowed walls
God, it's heaven in here
Fix me with your hand of praise
Fix me with your touch of precious thrills
Your fingers dance across my skin
Reaching out for the pride of man

Hand in hand, flesh in flesh
We're walking through the fire of love
Breath by breath, and flame by flame
We burn 'til the sun rises and shines hot
Love come gushing, love runs free
My love comes all over you
My love comes for you

Love me to death, my flower
Run bare fur through my hair
Naked on my lips
Love me to death, my precious
Smother me in kisses
Drown me with your waves of falling sweetness

Hold me dear, bury me deep
Bless me with your word of savage honour

Title: Swoon


I, more than adore you
Naked, standing before you
Hold out your arms
And open yourself wide
Hold me dear
Bury me deep inside
Feel, feel the glow
You make me swoon

I, wanna turn you on
Wanna take you high
Sleight of hand
Slip of the tongue
Sweet, how sweet you taste

And the heat
The heat you make
You make me swoon, you make me swoon

I, more than adore you
Naked, standing before you
Hush, baby hush
Rush, here comes the rush
You make me swoon, you make me swoon
You make me swoon, you make me swoon

Title: Ever May You Shine


Sone crazy holy roller trying to sell you jesus
Trying to sell you helter skelter
He sells you genocide, he sells you kingdom come
Now watch the little piggies run for shelter
Cease to exist, just come and say you love me

Welcome to the family, meet sadie and gypsy
They'll creepy crawly under your skin
And every time a bell tolls, and you've blood on your hands
An angel, an angel gets her wings
Cease to exist, just come and say you love me

And you had jesus until i came along
So come and join this freak show of mine
There's a place for you with use, a place for you in heaven
All that glitters is not gold, in heaven
Even you may shine

He preaches revelation, chapter and verse
And all dead swine grow up a sacred cow
Too many christ's and never enough crosses
Who shall we crucify now?
Cease to exist, just come and say you love me

Shine on

all words by Wayne Hussey

Thanks
too much more too list
shorter of breath- and one step closer to death.

No need to go on with that piece it speaks for itself. I am not a HUGE Floyd fan, but I do enjoy there glum/witty lyrics.
I was a little too tall
CouldÂ’ve used a few pounds
Tight pants points hardly reknown
She was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points all her own sitting way up high
Way up firm and high

Bob Seger, Night Moves

I can still hear the guitar riff...

I just replied to a post here yesterday saying this was the first album I ever bought, what a classic.
