I'm sure this one is on the post somewhere but I didn't feel like finding it so I started this new one.

My favorite part of a song is at the end of papa by prince on the come album.

everybodys crazy deep down we're all the same every single one of us knows some kind of pain in the middle of all this crazy one thing still remains if you love somebody life won't be a pain and there's always a rainbow at the end of rain

Refer to my signature below. It's from one of my favorite John Prine songs. I don't know why, maybe 'cause it makes me want to sing along whenever I hear it... [Smile]

Well, this may not be my favorite, but is one of my favorites.

"Well I can't really believe
No one was sent to get me
And I feel like I'm being erased
No one got left here"

This is from Cold's song "No one", I find this one very beautiful...

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our souls
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
To be a rock and not to roll

the great Led Zeppelin

Well, Tom! Hope you're feeling ok, you never grace this section with your presence!
We have a breakup song thread here, I'll see if I can find it.
We had some really good ones!

I can't think of any one line that seems more profound than another, just like I could never choose an instrument I liked more except I wasn't into brass or percussion that much, story of my life I suppose.

Simon and Garfunkel speak to my heart.
Just heard "Slip Slidin' away" in the grocery store line yesterday.

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone the song is over, thought I'd something more to say.

Classic lines from the Track "Time" on Pink Floyd's Dark side of the moon.

This one is a bit long..

"Well I drempt I saw you walking up a hillside in the snow. Casting shadows on the winter sky as you stood there counting crows. One for sorrow, two for joy, three for girls and four for boys, five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret never to be told. There's a bird that rests inside you, sleeping underneath your skin. When you open up your wings to speak, I wish you'd let me in."

"A Murder of One" Counting Crows.

Told ya it was long [Smile]

"the secret of life is enjoying the passage of time, any fool can do it, there aint nothing to it. No one knows how we got to the top of the hill. But since we're on our way down, we might as well enjoy the ride. The secret of love is in opening up your heart. It's ok to feel afraid, but don't let it stand in your way no, cause everyone knows that love is the only road."

James Taylor, "Secret O'life"

Our time is done, my love,
We've laid it all to waste,
One thousand moonlit kisses,
Can't Sweeten this bitter taste,
My desire for you is endless,
And I'll love you 'til we fall,
I just don't want you no more,
And that's the sweetest embrace of all.

"The Sweetest Embrace" by Nick Cave

A couple of "quickies" along the lines of "I'd give my right arm to have written these (left handed...)

"There you are standing in the bar and you're giving me grief about the GDR and that chip on your shoulder gets bigger as you get older" from Accident Waiting To Happen by Billy Bragg

"I'd like to read, I'd like to write but where I live I learn to fight, so don't you ever say that we're the same" from "Gangster" by Electronic.

There is a line in the Pearl Jam song "Black" from the album TEN, that is very sad and beautiful.......

"...I know someday you'll have
a beautiful life, I know you'll
be a star...in somebody else's
sky, but why, why can't it be,
why can't it be mine?..."

It is a constant reminder to me of the past, and a long lost love - I feel as if I could have written that lyric myself.......

My favourite song of all time (apart from the one my dad wrote for me when I was younger) has got to be "Flying Without Wings" by Westlife. It's about the moment when you look around, and realise how happy you ar made by certain things in your life. To me, it carries the message that we shouldn't take things for granted and always value everything that gives us happiness. It's beautiful and always makes me cry. I can't just pick out one line, so I'll post the whole song (I hope I don't compromise any copyright laws!!!!)

FLYING WITHOUT WINGS
Everybody's looking for that something
Something that makes their life complete
You find it in the strangest places
Places you never thought it could be
Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover's eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you've found that special thing
You're flying without wings

Some find it sharing every morning
Some in their solitary lives
You find it in the works of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry
You find it in the deepest friendships
The kind you cherish all your life
And when you know how much that means
You've found that special thing
You're flying without wings

So impossible as it may seem
You've got to fight for every dream
Cos who'se to know
Which one you let go
Would have made you complete

Well for me it's waking up beside you
To watch the sun rise on your face
To know that I can say "I love you"
In any given time or place
It's little things that only I know
Those are the things that make you mine
And it's like flying without wings
Cos you're my special thing
I'm flying without wings

And you're the place my life begins
And you'll be where it ends
I'm flying without wings
And that's the joy you bring
I'm flying without wings

A bit short this one. It comes from a John Denver song. The title escapes me but I always thought the phrase in the song was clever, so it stuck with me. It was, 'You just sorta...stomped on my Aorta'

I hope I won't be seen as being greedy here, but my most favourite song in the world ever is Child Psychology by Blackboxrecorder. Its also where my signature comes from... If I may be permitted to quote them lyrics wholesale (well, as they sound like to me anyway):

I stopped talking when I was five years old
I didn't want anything to do with the outside world
I was happy being quiet, but of course they wouldn't leave me alone
My parents tried every trick in the book
From speech therapists to child psychologists
I could have anything if only I asked for it out loud
Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it
Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it

But of course this episode couldn't last forever
I'd made my point and it was time to move on
Time to peel back the next layer of deceit
My school reports read that I showed no interest
A disruptive influence: I felt sorry for them in a way
But when they finally expelled me it didn't mean a thing
Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it
Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it

The November day I came home the Christmas decorations were already up
Spray on snow, flashing lights and an artificial tree
Which played Silent Night over and over again
My parents welcomed me with loving arms
But pretty soon they were back at each others throats
Normal happy childhood resumed
Batteries not included
Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it
Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it

"And I need you more than want you
and I want you for all time"

From Witchita Lineman by Glen Campbell

I also love the bit in the song where it sounds like morse code - de de de dedededede etc.

Just lovely.

"You fill up my senses, like a light in a forest, like
The mountains in Springtime, like a walk in the rain, like a
Sorm in the desert, like a
Sleepy blue ocean,
Come let me love you, come fill me again....Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you.
Come let me love you--Come fill me again."

"Annie's Song", John Denver

I wish I could have written it for my husband.

This song was written by my dear friend Jason. He was in a local band in the Pittsburgh area, so you guys have probably never heard the song. It's called "Wings of Wax" and it's one of my favorite songs:

Torn tickets in a scrapbook. Torn Lives still breathing.
Do you remember how sacred all the first times you have know.
Familiar as April. Sometimes something so simple.
And all cannot be forgiven or forgotten though never shown.
Now you're paying your tax. Wings made of wax. Flying just a little to close to the sun.
You're melting away, a tired actor in a play. Only yesterday when you were young.
'Though your spring may echo laughter. Neil Young still searchin' for that heart of gold.
But in that mine there is an ending and a lifetime to begin.
I drink to mysteries unanswered.
I drink to all the dead still living
and all the ghosts of Pennsylvania who've seen it all before, but couldn't win.
Now you're paying your tax. Wings made of wax, flying just a little too close to the sun.
You're melting away. Tired actor in a play.
Only yesterday when you were young.

This song is really special to me. It reminds me of the feeling I get sometimes when I think I've thrown it all away. It is intensely personal, but I thought I'd share it here. [Smile]

I've got so many fav lines in songs that I could spend all day mentioning them all. My fav at the moment though is the song "Machine Ballerina" by Suzanne Vega. It's just full of great lines.


Am I an afternoon's pastime?
a thing on a string
to be thrown and retrieved
like a phone call received
on somebody's birthday
to tease and delight
and then say goodnight
and then just say goodbye?

Am I a toy on a tray ?
a soft piece of clay
queen or clown for the day
machine ballerina
soldier of tin
standing so loyal
while you sit so royal
then I'm put away?

Ch: For your approval,
perusal,
and your possible
refusal,
I'm amusing,
I'm a puppet for your play.

Am I your Mad Magazine?
skin trampoline
pin-up pinball machine
your fantasy girl
of puzzling parts
but none fits or starts
we match wits but not hearts
I'm heard but never seen?

Chorus again

Another fav is my signature below which is from "Dumb" by Nirvana
