    What is your favorite song lyric?

    It can be one single lyric or a string of lyrics that you love.  And tell us why you love it so much.

    Most anything by the Rolling Stones, especially their blues numbers, and especially 'Not Fade Away' (which is really a Buddy Holly tune). The Stone's music touches my history, my heart, and carries deep meaning...the transience of life, love, pain, and irreverence.

    Blackbird singing in the dead of night
    Take these broken wings and learn to fly
    All your life
    You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

    I don't know if I can say it's my favorite, but one that I love along with the opening notes to the song is, Crazy, by Patsy Cline.  My parents played her music often and I think part of it is the great memories I have of my childhood and how my parents loved each other so much.  Even if the song is somewhat 'blue', the great yearning in her voice is soothing.  But I have a lot of favorite lyrics!

    "When Iʼm looking at the ground
    Itʼs an inbred feedback loop that drags me down
    So itʼs time to lift my brow
    And remember better days
    When I loved to worship you and all your ways
    Singing sweetest songs of praise
    Why are you downcast, oh my soul?
    Why so disturbed within me?
    I can remember when you showed your face to me"
    -"Satisfied In You (Psalms 42)" by The Sing Team
    i like this lyric because there are times when i've been so uplifted and happy and singing praise and then all of a sudden its like ive taken a spiritual nose dive and i can't understand why the days around me and my heart feel so heavy and downcast. the only thing i can really do is remember how much i loved to worship and be happy and sing praises nonstop and that there will be better days. it's okay to feel sad but lets pick ourselves up and remember the days when we could sing and laugh and dance and do the things that we loved to do and lets start doing them again and for me that was singing worship even in the quiet of my room, it didn't have to be in front of crowds of people. smile  i love this song <3

    "You said you'd never compromise
    With the mystery tramp but now you realize
    He's not selling any alibi's
    As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
    and say 'do you want to make a deal?'
    How does it feel?
    You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns when they all did tricks for you.
    Never understood that it ain't no good, you shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you.
    You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
    who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat.
    Ain't it hard when you discover that he really wasn't where it's at
    after he took from you everything he could steal?"
    - Bob Dylan, like a rolling stone

    I just love both verses. They're humbling. They give listeners an ego check.
