What's your favorite lyric from a song?

Just curious what stays with people...

Jeez cd318, I only listened for about 30 seconds a couple of days ago, but I would never have guessed that it was the Kinks performing. The original version has Dave performing the vocal which was pretty unusual.

Political World Bob Dylan

We live in a political world
Where mercy walks the plank
Life is in mirrors
Death disappears
Up the steps into the nearest bank.



Thankfully music can provide a welcome respite but there's no way of escaping the fact in 2022.

The most embarrassingly confessional first verse I've heard must be this one. 

The Wedding Present - 'Nobody's Twisting Your Arm'.


And when I called your house
I'm sure your sister thought that I was somebody else
I heard a laugh down the phone
And then the answer came that you weren't at home (ohh)
