Thread: Favorite Song Verse?

    And when you feel life aint worth living,
    You got to stand up and take a look around,
    Look up way to the sky.
    And when your deepest thjoughts are broken,
    Keep on dreaming boy,
    Cause when you stop dreaming it's time to die.

    Blind Melon - Change

    also...

    Well I haven't always been a perfect person,
    I haven't done what mum and dad had dreamed.
    But on the day I die I'll say,
    "At least I fu***** tried."
    That's the only eulogy I need.
    That's the only eulogy I need.

    Frank Turner - Eulogy

    Since the start of the 17th century
    There's been the scent of unseasoned wood burning in the air
    And the conquest of nature meant nothing at all
    While we betray exception we take all that is there
    Motives are translucent in the reflection of shame
    The actions ghostly remnants of our ancestral ways

    And unwittingly, you just take your place in this parade
    The voracious march of godliness makes us all the same anyway
    Since the dawn of our human family
    There's been concentrated sepsis blowing in the breeze
    And we turned on each other with ferocity
    Desperation, forced, without reprieve
    But the missions were misguided and the trammeled led astray
    The air resounds with thunder as the victors seized the day
    And the haunting voice of history lives ignored but not betrayed
    The voracious march of godliness will get us close to heaven one day

    Bad Religion -- "The Voracious March of Godliness"

    It all starts with a name and flows from there. A ridiculous moniker springs to mind and it launches like a multi-lubed slippery-sloop down chutes made of buttery-floops. Down, down, down. We watch, spellbound. Rapturous. Glockenspiel. We do our due diligence with penitence and penicillin. Do what’s due, then dew drops on your moon-pops.

    Open up the gates of the church and let me out of here
    Too many people have lied in the name of Christ
    For anyone to heed the call
    Too many people have died in the name of Christ
    That I can't believe it all

    And now I'm standing on the grave of a soldier that died in 1799
    And the day he died it was a birthday
    And I noticed it was mine
    And my head didn't know just who I was
    And I went spinning back in time
    And I am high upon the altar
    High upon the altar, high
    [I]"The world stands out on either side No wider than the heart is wide;
    Above the world is stretched the sky, No higher than the soul is high.
    The heart can push the sea and land Farther away on either hand;
    The soul can split the sky in two, And let the face of God shine through.
    But East and West will pinch the heart That can not keep them pushed apart;
    And he whose soul is flat -- the sky -- Will cave in on him by and by."
    [/I]

    I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
    I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
    I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
    The Christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top
    I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
    For 50 million hands upraised and open toward the sky

    I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
    I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me
    I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good
    I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro's hood

    I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
    I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
    I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
    I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

    I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
    I wish...
    I wish...

    "Working Class Hero"
    by John Lennon

    As soon as your born they make you feel small
    by giving you no time instead of it all
    Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
    Working Class Hero is something to be
    Working Class Hero is something to be

    They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
    They hate you if you're clever and despise a fool
    Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
    Working Class Hero is something to be
    Working Class Hero is something to be

    When they've tortured and scared you for 20 odd years
    then they expect you to pick a career
    When you can't really function you're so full of fear
    Working Class Hero is something to be
    Working Class Hero is something to be

    Keep you doped with religion, sex and T.V.
    and you think you're so clever and classless and free
    but you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
    Working Class Hero is something to be
    Working Class Hero is something to be

    There's room at the top I'm telling you still
    but first you must learn how to smile as you kill
    if you want to be like the folks on the hill
    Working Class Hero is something to be

    Yes , A Working Class Hero is something to be
    If you want to be a hero well just follow me
    If you want to be a hero well just follow me


    The only one who can heal you is you.

    You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
    Oh and that's alright with me
    -- Bruce Springsteen, Thunder Road

    Not the best pick-up line ever, but that's alright with me.

    The only one who can heal you is you.

    Ooo, just remembered this one from The Lumineers' Morning Song. Not what you'd call a feel good tune, but brilliant lyrics.


    And it's a shame that it ends this way,
    With nothing left to say.
    So just sit on your hands while I walk away,
    It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame.

    When my hands begin to shake,
    And bitterness is all I taste,
    And my car won't stop,
    'Cause I cut the brakes,
    I hold on, to a hope in my fate.

    Woah-oh, ah-ah, hey-hey
    May you return to love one day.
    Well I hope, and I pray,
    You get what you gave.
    Woah-oh, ah-ah, hey-hey.

    This is life
    What a f***ed up thing we do
    What a nightmare come true
    Or a playground if we choose
    And I choose

    I enjoy the inept lyrics in the song "Ai No Corrida" performed by Quincy Jones (and written by Chaz Jankel and Kenny Young):

    Pinch me, I'm dreaming
    But if it is don't let me know
