    hey people. .. post here your favourite lines from the songs that u like. . .or any line or phrase that you particularly like. ..

    mine :

    We've been through this such a long long time
    Just tryin' to kill the pain
    But lovers always come and lovers always go
    And no one's really sure who's lettin' go today
    Walking away
    If we could take the time to lay it on the line
    I could rest my head
    Just knowin' that you were mine
    All mine

    ( GnR - November Rain )

    Lyrics of 25 minutes by MLTR..

    After some time I've finally made up my mind
    she is the girl and I really want to make her mine
    I'm searching everywhere to find her again
    to tell her I love her
    and I'm sorry 'bout the things I've done

    I find her standing in front of the church
    the only place in town where I didn't search
    She looks so happy in her weddingdress
    but she's crying while she's saying this

    Boy I've missed your kisses all the time but this is
    twentyfive minutes too late
    Though you travelled so far boy I'm sorry your are
    twentyfive minutes too late

    Against the wind I'm going home again
    wishing me back to the time when we were more than friends

    But still I see her in front of the church
    the only place in town where I didn't search
    She looked so happy in her weddingdress
    but she cryed while she was saying this

    Chorus: Boy I've missed your kisses all the time but this is
    twentyfive minutes too late
    Though you travelled so far boy I'm sorry your are
    twentyfive minutes too late

    Out in the streets
    places where hungry hearts have nothing to eat
    inside my head
    still I can hear the words she said

    Boy I've missed your kisses all the time but this is
    twentyfive minutes too late
    Though you travelled so far boy I'm sorry your are
    twentyfive minutes too late

    I can still hear her say.......

    tejas ..........

    I've got lots, but lets try to narrow it down.

    1. And not to put your halo down
    Around your neck and tug you off your cloud
    But I’m more then just a little curious
    How you’re planning to go about
    Making your amends to the dead
    To the dead

    ---- The Noose by A Perfect Circle

    2. Clever got me this far, then tricky got me in
    Eye on what im after, don't need another friend.
    Smile and drop the cliche`, till you think im listening
    I'll take just what i came for, then i'm out the door again.

    --- The Package by A Perfect Circle

    3. I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
    If you can show me something worth fighting for
    I'm gonna buy this place was what i said
    Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head.

    ---- A Rush of Blood to the Head by Coldplay

    The piece you read in my signature. Its from the song "I wish you were here" by Incubus.

    This is all i can remmember right now. More if i recollect later.

    Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
    In a world of magnets and miracles
    Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
    The ringing of the division bell had begun

    Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway
    Do they still meet there by the Cut

    There was a ragged band that followed our footsteps
    Running before time took our dreams away
    Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
    To a life consumed by slow decay

    The grass was greener
    The light was brighter
    With friends surrounded
    The nights of wonder

    Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
    To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
    Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
    Dragged by force of some inner tide

    At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
    We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

    Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
    There's a hunger still unsatisfied
    Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
    Though down this road we've been so many times

    The grass was greener
    The light was brighter
    The taste was sweeter
    The nights of wonder
    With friends surrounded
    The dawn mist growing
    The water flowing
    The endless river

    Forever and ever

    1. My signature, of course. I love the way the whole complexity of the theme of The Silmarillion is reduced to such simple words.

    2. Pink Floyd - Wish you were here

    So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
    blue skies from pain.
    Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
    A smile from a veil?
    Do you think you can tell?
    And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
    Hot ashes for trees?
    Hot air for a cool breeze?
    Cold comfort for change?
    And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
    How I wish, how I wish you were here.
    We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
    Running over the same old ground.
    What have we found? The same old fears.
    Wish you were here.

    Hmm.. thats the best part of any song... the freedom of interpretation. Different people can interpret it in many different ways but the song actually does have a theme. The random pictures are used as imagery to talk about former frontman Syd Barret not being with the band during its successful period. But who knows.

    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow
    share their dreams
    With you and me
    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow dream away
    in the wind of change
    The wind of change
    Blows straight into the face of time
    Like a stormwind
    that will ring the freedom bell
    For peace of mind
    Let your balalaika sing
    What my guitar wants to say

    -"winds of change" by scorpions

    And I know, it’s a sin putting words in the mouths of the dead. And I know it’s a crime to weave your wishes into what they said. And I know — only fools venture where them spirits tread. ‘Cause I know, every word, every sound bouncing ‘round my head. Is just static on the radio. Everything I think I know is just static on the radio.

    From "Static on the Radio" By Jim White. Its damn goooood. :) Check it out if you can, the vocals are amazing.

    Wage the war on organized crime
    Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks
    Behind the lines
    Some people risk to employ me
    Some people live to destroy me
    Either way they die

    They killed my wife, and my baby
    With hopes to enslave me
    First mistake... last mistake!
    Paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants
    Next mistake... no more mistakes!

    Fill the cracks in, with judicial granite
    Because I don't say it, don't mean I ain't
    Thinkin' it
    Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
    I know what I said, now I must scream of the
    And the lack of mercy killings

    I love this Song...

    one of my favs
    We got the afternoon
    You got this room for two
    One thing I've left to do
    Discover me
    Discovering you

    One mile to every inch of
    Your skin like porcelain
    One pair of candy lips and
    Your bubblegum tongue

    And if you want love
    We'll make it
    Swimming a deep sea
    Of blankets
    Take all your big plans
    And break 'em
    This is bound to be a while

    Your body Is a wonderland
    Your body is a wonder
    (I'll use my hands)
    Your body Is a wonderland

    Something 'bout the way your hair
    falls in your face
    I love the shape you take when crawling
    towards the pillowcase
    You tell me where to go and
    Though I might leave to find it
    I'll never let your head hit the bed
    Without my hand behind it

    You want love?
    We'll make it
    Swimming a deep sea
    Of blankets
    Take all your big plans
    And break 'em
    This is bound to be a while
    Your body Is a wonderland
    Your body is a wonder
    (I'll use my hands)
    Your body Is a wonderland

    Damn baby
    You frustrate me
    I know you're mine all mine all mine
    But you look so good it hurts sometimes

    Your body Is a wonderland
    Your body is a wonder
    (I'll use my hands)
    Your body is a wonderland
    Your body Is a wonderland

    and this too..

    Leningrad by bily joel
    Victor was born
    The spring of 44
    and never saw
    His father anymore
    The child of sacrifice
    child of war
    Another son who never had
    A father after Leningrad
    Went off to school
    and learned to serve his state
    follow the rules
    and drank his vodka straight
    the only way to live
    was drown the hate
    the russian life was very sad
    and such was life in leningrad

    I was born in 49
    A cold war kid in the McCarthy times
    Stop 'em at the 38th parallel
    blast those yellow reds to hell
    cold war kids were hard to kill
    under their desks in an air raid drill
    haven't they heard we won the war
    what do they keep on fighting for?

    Victor was sent
    to some red army town
    served out his time
    become a circus clown
    the greastst happiness
    he'd ever found
    was making russian children glad
    when children lived in leningrad.

    The children lived in Levittown
    hid in the shelters underground
    Til the soviets turned their ships around
    torn the cuban missiles down
    and in that bright October sun
    we knew our childhood days were done
    I watched my friends go off to war
    What do they keep on fighting for?

    So my child and I came to this place
    to meet him , eye to eye and face to face
    He made my daughter laugh
    Then we embraced
    We never knew what friends we had
    Until we came to Leningrad.

    right now i can't see better lyrics than these ... :

    And you can't fight the tears that ain't
    Or the moment of truth in your lies
    When everything feels like the movies
    Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd
    When everything's made to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am

    iris - goo goo dolls

    here are my top ten songs by lyrics ...... as you all just said .... its hard to narrow down the list ...
    1. i like everything bryan adams writes .... for its simplicity and heartfeltness .... even the 'i wanna be your underwear' stuff .... but i don't think anything says i love you better than these lines :

    'Look into my eyes , and you'll see what you mean to me' .... nothing better has been said in one line according to me .... then there's a song by him called "you're still beautiful to me" love each line ... then there's "heaven" and "have you ever loved a woman" ... i like him better as a songwriter .....

    2. BON JOVI's Always .... AMAZING lyrics .... also his "in these arms"
    3. sweet child of mine by GNR ... didn't expect that from AXL at all
    3. two steps behind by deff leppard .....again .... beautiful
    4. nothing else matters by metallica
    5. don't wanna miss a thing by aerosmith
    6. wild world by Cat Stevens
    7. Truly madly deply by savage garden

    10. 25 minutes by MLTR

    2. chinese radio by a less known group called london boys ....

    3. heal the world by michael jackson

    4. November rain by GNR

    5. Hotel california for the sheer number of its intepretations ....we actually did a literary thesis on this song as a class and had 33 different possible meanings come out of it .... ranging from the song being labelled the story of a struggling artist new to success ... to one that said it was about 'someone trying to kick the drug habit'

    6.sad but true metallica

    7.kiss from a rose by seal ... (could be put in romantic ... ?? dunno ???

    8. lose yourself by eminem : hate the guy but that one song ..... phew ...

    9. ironic -alanis morisette its way too funny ... lol ...

    10. This one ..... it goes like ....

    very very tough to nail any one song......... there are lots.. in most cases its only a few lines and not the whole song that kick ass.

    for now, i'll just allude to a song that (sadly) very few give due credit to...

    "Motorcycle Drive By"

    Summer time and the wind is blowing outside
    In lower Chelsea and I don't know
    What I'm doing in this city
    The sun is always in my eyes
    It crashes through the windows
    And I'm sleeping on the couch
    When I came to visit you
    That's when I knew,
    That I could never have you
    I knew that before you did
    Still I'm the one who's stupid
    And there's this burning
    Like there's always been
    I never been so alone
    And I've never been so alive

    Visions of you on a motorcycle drive by
    The cigarette ash flies in your eyes
    And you don't mind, you smile
    And say the world doesn't fit with you
    I don't believe you, you're so serene
    Careening through the universe
    Your axis on a tilt, you're guiltless and free

    I hope you take a piece of me with you
    And there's things I'd like to do
    That you don't believe in
    I would like to build something
    But you never see it happen
    And there's this burning
    Like there's always been
    I've never been so alone
    And I've, I've never been so alive
    And there's this burning
    There is this burning yeah yeah yeah.......

    Where's the soul I want to know
    New York City is evil
    The surface is everything but I could never do that
    Someone would see through that
    And this is our last time
    We'll be friends again
    I'll get over you, you'll wonder who I am
    And there's this burning
    Just like there's always been
    I've never been so alone, alone
    And I've, and I've never been so alive
    So alive

    I go home to the coast
    It starts to rain I paddle out on the water
    Taste the salt and taste the pain
    I'm not thinking of you again
    Summer dies and swells rise
    The sun goes down in my eyes
    See this rolling wave
    Darkly coming to take me
    And I've never been so alone
    And I've never been so alive

    by Third Eye Blind

    the 5 paragraphs in the song express 5 consecutive ideas..... who among you have seen "Taxidriver" by martin sorcece ??

    Floyd rules when it comes to Lyrics
    My Favourite though is something unusual:
    "I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the
    most of us...very hard to explain why you're mad, even
    if you're not mad..." (from Speak to Me)

    ...donno why but this one has stuck on to me
