Basically any lyric from The Saltwater Room by Owl City; it's just such an adorable song with really sweet lyrics. Specifically though;

"Time together is just never quite enough, when you and I are alone I've never felt so at home;
What will it take to make or break this hint of love? We need time, only time;
When we're apart whatever are you thinking of? If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone?;
So tell me darling do you wish we'd fall in love? All the time, all the time.

The chorus of this song is just so sweet and it always makes me feel emotional regarding a semi-ex and the time that he played this song to me. He was singing it on Skype after we'd had an emotional conversation and when it got to the chorus... just hngg. This lead to the song having a special feeling for me and especially with the hopeful lyrics of the chorus, they're words that I've always held close to my heart. The whole notion of two people feeling this way about each other is wonderful and the way the lyrics are sung really brings out the warmth in them.

Right now it's these:

"Born we are the same, within the silence, indifference be thy name
Torn we walk alone, we sleep in silent shades
The grandeur fades, the meaning never known"


"If nothing in the world can change our children will inherit nothing"

Those are from the song "Born" by Nevermore.

Awesome progressive/groove metal aside, the first lines speak to me that no matter what race we are, what religion we believe or not believe, how smart or stupid we are, strong or weak we are, we are all born the same in that we live through life not really knowing what our species' true purpose of being is. We often times cut ourselves off from each other and never really try to understand one another despite our differences. We all live and die without truly knowing the reason why we all do so. If there even is a universal meaning to life to begin with.

The second name speak to me just as it is. The way the world is now, if we don't stand up and actually change what we see wrong, there might one day not be a world for our future generations.
The biggest flaw with voluntaryism is its inefficiency, caused by the basic condition of human selfishness.

♫Oh, we kid ourselves, there's future in the ****ing / But there is no ****ing future♫ ('We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed - Los Campesinos!)

You can fill in the blanks. Suffice to say, I find it wonderfully poetic in its vulgarity.

"But I'm too tired to fall asleep."
"And I'm scared to death that I'll never be afraid

I like these because as far as my brain can comprehend there is no way these feelings could exist in real life. These are both in songs by the electronica band Owl City.

I love it :D and it is so very true at the moment.

As for me I find it very hard to choose just one for me it is probably

Heart-shaped Box
She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak,
I've been locked inside your heart shaped box for weeks.
I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap,
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black...


Meat-Eating orchids forgive no one just yet.
Cut myself on angel hair and baby's breath.
Broken hymen of your highness, I'm left black,
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back...

both are from Nirvana's Heart-Shaped Box... It i hard for to explain why I love these lyrics but they just hit me for some reason.
"We have to change our way of thinking if we
really want to change the future."

This is from Sail Away by Styx.

I'm sailing away,
Set an open course for the virgin sea,
'Cause I've got to be free,
Free to face the life that's ahead of me,
On board, I'm the captain, so climb aboard,
We'll search for tomorrow on every shore,
And I'll try, Oh Lord I'll try, to carry on

I look to the sea,
Reflections in the waves spark my memory,
Some happy, some sad,
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had,
We lived happily forever, so the story goes,
But somehow we missed out on the pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on

These lyrics just speak to me. It talks about moving on and living life, and childhood memories. I just find it touching. It's one of the only songs I listen to and NEVER get tired of. If you haven't, listen to it!

Now this looks like a job for me so everybody just follow me cuz we need a little controversy, cuz it feels so empty without me.

I don't know why I like these lyrics in particular. Probably cuz they're so damn catchy.

I don't typically listen to songs for lyrics, rather I listen for good rhythm and music in the background. But there are a lot of lyrics I do like, I probably couldn't list them all But yeah, anyone who reads them is probably going to find them weird but oh well xP

"And in her eyes you see nothing, no sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years"

"... But time makes you bolder,
Children get older
I'm getting older, too..."

"I hear the horses thunder
Down in the valley below
I'm waiting for the angels of Avalon,
Waiting for the eastern glow"

Probably my all time favorite for some reason:
"I want to be a lion
E-everybody else can pass as cats"
And no, surprisingly it's not entirely because it has to do with lions lol

There's more but I'll stop there.

So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

This part of Hero (by Mariah Carey) lyrics encouraged me to never give up and motivates me.

I feel in love with this song the first time I heard it. It actually inspired one of my fan fics.
I was singing that all during work yesterday. Couldn't get it out of my head, and now it's back in my head, good times.

Shook Ones II by Mobb Deep and everything by CunningLynguists strike me like a firebrick when I listen to them. I have several favorite love songs- one of them being A Song for You by Leon Russell, another being Sea of Love by Phil Phillips and the Twilights. Both are fairly simple but strong. Two of my all time favorite songs are also love songs: Case of You by Joni Mitchell and Take it With Me by Tom Waits. The latter kills me when he sings, "all that you've loved is all you own."
Case of You is entirely brilliant:

Just before our love got lost you said
"I am as constant as a northern star"
And I said "Constantly in the darkness
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar"

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh Canada
With your face sketched on it twice
Oh you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet

Oh I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
oh I would still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid

I remember that time you told me you said
"Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine
'Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time
Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet

Oh I could drink a case of you darling
And I would still be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours
She knew your life
She knew your devils and your deeds
And she said
"Go to him, stay with him if you can
But be prepared to bleed"

Oh but you are in my blood
You're my holy wine
You're so bitter, bitter and so sweet

Oh, I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

"If I can't be my own, I'd feel better dead"
That was from the song Nutshell, by Alice in Chains. Not much explaining to be done on this one, it pretty much speaks for itself. It just speaks so much to me. I would definitely reccomend this to anyone to listen to.

Seeds of eulogy to sew along with dreams
Fill the needs that can leave us grieving alone
A symphony resounding in our minds
Guides us through what we knew would come all along

Oh, and of course:

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
My hate for you defines my lust
Bridges to bridges, you're nothing to me
Welcome world, Miss Anne Thrope

My favorite song lyric is “Never mind I will find someone like you”. It a wonderful song sung by Adele.

"This has to be, the most beautiful,
the most peaceful place, i've ever been to.
It's nothing like, i've ever seen before.

When I think how far i've come I cant beleive it, yetI see it.
Then I see family, I see the way we used to be..."

-Phil Collins - Welcome

Absolutely beautiful lyrics.

I'm a massive Australian metal fan so most of my favourite songs and lyric are from these bands if you're into this kind of music check these bands out.

Home Is For The Heartless: Parkway Drive
"If home is where the heart is, why do I feel so f...... heartless?"
The crumbling skyline cuts a vicious horizon,
sinking its teeth into the cold September sky.
Decaying towers of steel reach with crooked spires for the heavens,
like bones of the hollow chest of this town, torn wide for the scavengers.

Carrion: Parkway Drive

In a moment I'm lost
Dying from the inside
Her eyes take me away
Tear me apart from the inside out"

Open Letter: The Amity Affliction
"I'm not searching the sky for a reason to live
'cause I found beauty right here and found the passion to give,
so let me give you my heart, let me give you my tears,
let me give you my life, let me give you my fears."

Oof, so many:

Do you collect the souls you've lost
In the top of your dresser drawer
Count the number of tears displaced
On lonely bedroom floors
A machine where your heart once was
Slowly takes the place of you
Only hold the memories now
Of a love I thought I knew


Now we both have separate lives and lovers
Insignificantly enough we both have significant others

Both by Anberlin, the first from their sond "Breaking", the latter from "A Day Late".
