What's your favorite lyric from a song?


Just curious what stays with people...

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.
From Ray Wylie Hubbard's The Messenger:
"Our fears are like dragons guarding our most precious treasures." (And he's quoting the French poet Relke)

From Guy Clark's The Cape:
"He's one of those that knows that life is just a leap of faith, so spread your arms, and hold your breath, and always trust your cape."

From Trout Fishing in America's (Ezra Idlet & Keith Grimwood)Eleven Easy Steps:
"No imagination's the only thing that can stop me."
Please don't confront me with my failures/
I have not forgotten them.

--Paul Westerberg
Savatage: 'I've wasted my time 'till time wasted me'.

David Lee Roth: 'I don't know where I'm goin' but I can't wait to get there'
'Now take the traveller and the tourist
the essential difference is
the traveller don't knows where he is goin'
and the tourist don't know where he is
Small world 'till they lose your luggage'

And finally, from Queensryche:
'I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
It's neve worth the pain that you feel'.

But I'm a real happy guy :)
