I love the line ‘You’ll be my Louisiana, I’ll be your Mississippi from the Blake Shelton song Honey Bee.
I notice that I am always picking a certain line from a song and then it is my favorite part of that song. This line is special because my hubby is a Louisiana man and you can’t have Louisiana without Mississippi right? Just reminds me of us.
Post your favorite lines!

one that comes to mind right now is
“…but there ain’t no Coupe Deville hidin’ at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box.”
From Meat Loaf’s “Two Outta Three Ain’t Bad.”

I LOVE Blake Shelton’s new song too!
My favorite would have to be:
“And people that I barely knew,
love me cause I’m part of you”
From Keith Urbans new song Without You

I love “Only love can break your heart” fron a song of the same name by Neil Young. I’m getting it tattooed on my rib. I also love “Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun” from Lady Gaga’s Poker Face. Yes I am a nerd. Lol!

Mine is from Everything by Michael Buble – “And I can’t believe, uh that I’m your man, And I get to kiss you baby just because I can”
Its also our first dance song..

OK, I would never ever be able to narrow it down to just one, the same way I can’t narrow down one favorite song, because their are happy fun songs I love, and devastatingly sad songs I love, and some in between, and they all register about the same on my love scale, but for different reasons. So with that in mind, I’m listing a couple of my favorite lines.
“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”-The End, The Beatles,
“It occured to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to Father Time’ and “Love is watching someone die”-What Sarah Sad, Death Cab for Cutie
“I love you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm, your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm.”-Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye, Leonard Cohen
“And nothing matters when we’re dancing, in tat or tatters you’re entrancing, be we in Paris or in Lansing, nothing matters when we’re dancing.”-Nothing Matters When We’re Dancing, The Magnetic Fields
“If I could make days last forever, if words could make wishes come true, I’d save every day like a treasure and then, again, I would spend them with you.”-Jim Croce, Time in a Bottle

I don’t know why, but the lyrics of this beautiful song, Standing on the Moon, came to mind when I saw the thread title. The first time I heard it sung, I cried. I wish I had heard it sung by the [deceased] songwriter.
Here’s the very version I saw at a Rex Foundation benefit. I’m so glad someone recorded it. Lovely song. The ending is the best. 🙂
Standing on the moon
I see the battle rage below
Standing on the moon
I see the soldiers come and go
There’s a metal flag beside me
Someone planted long ago
Old Glory standing stiffly
Crimson, white and indigo – indigo
Standing on the moon
With nothing left to do
A lovely view of heaven
But I’d rather be with you – be with you
If the names McCartney or Lennon are on it, it’s a great lyric in my book. Even non-sensical lyrics sound awesome with their touch. The last lines of I am the Walrus can make me cheer and they are non-sensical.
