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!

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

you won’t have to strain to look into my eyes.”

You’re the only song I want to hear – Death Cab for Cutie, Soul Meets Body

There’s a hole in my heart that can only be filled by you – Extreme, Hole Hearted

You’re in my blood like holy wine; you taste so bitter and so sweet. I could drink a case of you and still be on my feet. – Joni Mitchell, Case of You

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. 🙂

Favorite verse:

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

The refrain:

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.  Smile
