Title says it all pretty much. What is your favorite line/verse from a song? What makes them so great/interesting? Go into detail, and please explain why, as we don't want a list, now do we? Feel free to go super into detail and analyze what makes it so amazing! :D

Mine is from the album ¡Dos! by Green Day. It's the chorus of a song called Lazy Bones.

"I can't take it anymore
Not with all the liars
Like a prisoner of war"

Basically, I love it because in the song it's my favorite part, and that it also connects to recent events in my life. My parent's won't get off my back about everything I've messed up on, and I have to explain things to them every day. Then the next day they bring it up and pretend that the conversation last night didn't exist (hence liars) and it keeps going ON AND ON AND ON IN A VICIOUS ****ING HORRIBLE CYCLE. They do NOT listen to me at all and it feels like they're trying to break me and have me admit I'm doing something that I'm not.

Te amo, te amo, she's scared to breathe
I hold her hand, I got no choice
Pulled me out on the beach, danced in the water, I start to leave
She's begging me and asking why it's over


This lyric is emotionally, lovely. I like it.

FRANK OCEAN - BAD RELIGION LYRICS

I feel in love with this song the first time I heard it. It actually inspired one of my fan fics.

And lose ourselves along the way


This song lyric would probably be far from being my all-time favorite. But it fits the topic. This specific verse has just been stuck in my head for a while, and it just keeps me going. Especially when I find myself pondering on the somewhat questionable real life choices I've made in the recent past. I find it oddly inspiring, even though I can think of many other songs that I prefer over the song that the lyric came from itself. So yeah, it's probably gonna change in the near future, but for now, this is it.

Its a beautiful time to live right now
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
The sky is burning through the clouds
Doo doo doo doo doo doo cant you see

I believe theres someone who can see the picture from beyond
Casting to us images like stars remaining through the dawn
And all our faded memories in multi-color can be seen
And everything we ever knew now in panoramic view
If you could see the world from every angle
Watch it all untangle
Trace it all back to the start
Thered be chain reactions in every part

It really marks what I stand for, which is why I love it so much. The lyrics puncture the surface, diving deeper into what this world is all about.

LOL, no I'm kidding. That song just sucks imo'

But to be serious my favorite lyric would be this
Quote:
Tupac - Changes
I see no changes all I see is racist faces
misplaced hate makes disgrace to races
We under I wonder what it takes to make this
one better place, let's erase the wasted
Take the evil out the people they'll be acting right
'cause both black and white is smokin' crack tonight
and only time we chill is when we kill each other
it takes skill to be real, time to heal each other
And although it seems heaven sent
We ain't ready, to see a black President, uhh
It ain't a secret don't conceal the fact
the penitentiary's packed, and it's filled with blacks
But some things will never change
try to show another way but you stayin' in the dope game
Now tell me what's a mother to do
bein' real don't appeal to the brother in you
You gotta operate the easy way
"I made a G today" But you made it in a sleazy way
sellin' crack to the kid. " I gotta get paid,"
Well hey, well that's the way it is

Most of the lyrics from No Surprises by Radiohead.

A heart that's full up like a landfill
A job that slowly kills you
Bruises that won't heal

You look so tired unhappy
Bring down the government
They don't
They don't speak for us

I'll take a quiet life
A handshake of carbon monoxide

No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises

Silent
Silent


I won't do the whole thing but I do get touched by these lyrics a lot, one of my fave songs for that reason.

hot girls we have problems too

except we're hot
the world needs to open their eyes
and realise
we're not perfect and sometimes we lie!


THIS IS TOTAL GENIUS.

...

K, lol, jk.

If I were to pick a favorite song based on lyrics, it would be the stuff in Dare You To Move by Switchfoot.

Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next
What happens next

[Chorus]
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
Tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

[Chorus]

Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened before


Pure gold.

"Reality is a lovely place but I wouldn't want to live there,but I wouldn't wanna live there." in particular is my favorite lyrics. I'm sure alot of you figured that out by how often it's in my signature.
They just really stuck out to me and it's a pretty true statement. The reality I picture in my head is far better than the real reality. I've always wanted to live in the world I imagine in my head, but unfortunately I can't. I really wish I could live in the made up world in my head cause life would be better.

steve vai - all about eve

And though the sun goes down
The fever you adore is burning in your breast
Helpless in the fall from paradise into your bed
For here it is sown, in time we forget what is man

Don’t let your body cry
This game of love is war
And I’m already dead

You say- Hold me down and wash away
This hunger from my flesh
And make me reborn in sweet innocence
Come on and make me live

It’s voodoo that you possess
(Your heaven is danger)
Deny your dark side, I know
All about your secret life
Oh Eve

And so the moon is high
I see that love is blind
To the fire in your eyes

As our garden fiercely burns
We have no place to hide
Naked and cold running from the wind
Now wrapped in skin

It’s voodoo that you possess
(Your heaven is danger)
Deny your dark side, I know
All about your secret life

It’s voodoo that you possess
(Your heaven is danger)
Behind those lucid eyes
The shadow of the serpent lies
Oh Eve
All about Eve

Some of my other favorites;

"you can't be caught red handed if you're not red handed"
"what god takes away, let's refill all your holes with mud"

Probably a bunch more I can't think of at the moment.

What LilJz1234 said. One of my favorite lyrics too, but I like the quote in the song.

Quote:
“You gotta make a change. Its time for us as a people to start making some changes, lets change the way we eat, lets change the way we live, and lets change the way we treat each other. You see the old way wasn't working so its on us, to do what we gotta do to survive.”

LOVG: Historia de un Sueño

Promete que serás feliz, te ponías tan guapa al reír
Y así, solo así, quiero recordarte, así, como antes,
Así, adelante, así, vida mía ahora te toca a ti, sólo a tí, seguir nuestro viaje
Se esta haciendo tarde, tendré que marcharme,
En unos segundos vas a despertar...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Promise that you will be happy, you are so good-looking when laughing
And like this, only like this I want to remember you, like this, as before
Like this, onwards, like this, my life now it is up to you, you alone, to continue our trip
It is getting late, I will have to leave.
In a few seconds you are going to wake up

This is from Nas is the song Topless

Ya skins ya traveling bag of your existence.
Yours is shabby and scab while mines glistenin.
Vivid on my skin how many continents I've visit then you could journey with me to different places by listenin.


Nas is one of the best storytellers ever when it comes to lyrics. I really like the last line here from "Vivid...listenin". He is telling the listeners that they can follow his story and his life through his songs.

Both from the same song and I like them for the same reason. I didn't put them in the quote together because they're from different parts of the song. I don't have time to explain all of it at the moment, but I might later.

I shouldn't even have to explain this. The raw emotion that is built up during this entire song really jumps at me in this verse especially... All the feels, man. ;__;

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

So if you love me, let me go. And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care. I can't destroy what isn't there.
Deliver me into my Fate - If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you...
My smile was taken long ago / If I can change I hope I never know

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
I couldn't face a life without your light
But all of that was ripped apart... when you refused to fight

So save your breath, I will not hear. I think I made it very clear.
You couldn't hate enough to love. Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren't my friend. Then I could hurt you in the end.
I never claimed to be a Saint...
My own was banished long ago / It took the Death of Hope to let you go

So Break Yourself Against My Stones
And Spit Your Pity In My Soul
You Never Needed Any Help
You Sold Me Out To Save Yourself
And I Won't Listen To Your Shame
You Ran Away - You're All The Same
Angels Lie To Keep Control...
My Love Was Punished Long Ago
If You Still Care, Don't Ever Let Me Know
If you still care, don't ever let me know...

(snuff, by Slipknot)
