Lyrics - great lines

Postby TheHero » Wed Mar 29, 2017 11:26 pm

Please share great lyrics.


Roger Taylor's song; Good Times Are Now:
One line gets stuck in my brain:


Nobody get's out of here...alive


In context with the song:

Live for the present it's the only one we have
Nobody get's out of here...alive
Life in the future might never come to pass
You know - good times are now

Sail Away Sweet Sister (To The Sister I Never Had)

The whole thing is incestuous; here is just a sample:

Babe, are you feeling sore?
You don't wanna play no more
How come you behave this way


The line that really creeps me out:

Always be in love with you

So many to choose from, but a beautiful, poetic and emotive lyric From 'Save Me' that is often overlooked:

'I hang my head and I advertise a soul for sale or rent,
I have no heart, I am cold inside, I have no real intent'

Any lyric from Teo Toriatte, particularly
"When I'm gone
No need to wonder if I ever think of you
The same moon shines
The same wind blows
For both of us, and time is but a paper moon... be not gone

Though I'm gone
It's just as though I hold the flower that touches you
A new life grows
The blossom knows
There's no one else could warm my heart as much as you... be not gone"

Or White Queen
On such a breathless night as this
Upon my brow the lightest kiss
I walked alone
And all around the air did say
My lady soon will stir this way
In sorrow known

Last One, Drowse

It's the sad-eyed, goodbye, yesterday moments I remember
It's the bleak street, weak-kneed partings I recall ... or,

Half of the time
We'd broaden our minds
More in the poolhall than we did in the schoolhall
