What's your favorite lyric from a song?

Just curious what stays with people...

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)




That’s what you might call a real haunting song of loss.

It reminded me of this one originally written by Nick Cave, but performed here by Shane McGowan.




Last night I lay trembling
The moon it was low
It was the end of love
Of misery and woe

Then suddenly above me
Her face buried in light
Came a vision of beauty
All covered in white

Now the bell-tower is ringing
And the night has stole past
O Lucy, can you hear me?
Wherever you rest


and the further i get from the things that i care about, the less i care about how much further away i get. the cure, fear of ghosts.

"If you look at your reflection at the bottom of the well
What you see is only on the surface
When you try to see the meaning, hidden underneath
The measure of the depth can be deceiving
The bottom has a rocky reputation"

-The Confessor (Joe Walsh)
