Favorite Piece of Song Lyrics

I know, I know! Leave me alone, I'm in a good mood.

My favorite, because I always assumed if Bruce had met me, he would have written it about me,(a girl can dream) Plus, I just heard this on the radio.

"You ain't no beauty, but hey, you're allright".

"Je Suis Prest"

i love pretty much anything from dylan, but the following is one of my favorites:

"let me ask you one question
is your money that good
will it buy you forgiveness
do you think that it could
i think you will find
when your death takes its toll
that all the money you made
will never buy back your soul"

“Try to learn to let what is unfair teach you.” – David Foster Wallace

"Live through this and you won't look back
There's one thing I want to say, so I'll be brave
You were what I wanted, I gave what I gave
I'm not sorry I met you, I'm not sorry it's over
I'm not sorry there's nothing to save"

-Your Ex-lover Is Dead - Stars

I don't even know where to begin...I'm just gonna put down the first thing that pops into my head.

Ok, Butterfly by Weezer. Every word is beautiful.

Yesterday I went outside
With my mama's mason jar,
Caught a lovely butterfly
When I woke up today
Looked in on my fairy pet
She had withered all away
No more sighing in her breast

I'm sorry for what I did
I did what my body told me to
I didn't mean to do you harm
Everytime I pin down what I think I want it slips away
The ghost slips away

Smell you on my hands for days
I can't wash away your scent
If I'm a dog then you're a b!tch
I guess you're as real as me
Maybe I can live with that
Maybe I need fantasy
Life of chasing butterfly

I'm sorry for what I did
I did what my body told me to
I didn't mean to do you harm
Everytime I pin down what I think I want it slips away
The goal slips away

I told you I would return
When the robin makes his nest
But I ain't never coming back
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry

"Float like a cannonball, sting like a shark."
Basically all of the lyrics of CB4's "Straight Outta Lo Cash" are this good, but almost none are rated G.

Love is a Mattlefield.

I have to tell you, that the moment I read the thread title and before I had clicked on it, this was the phrase that immediately popped into my head.

The first that springs to mind that would pass the draconian word filter:

You know that I care what happens to you,
And I know that you care for me.
So I don't feel alone,
Or the weight of the stone,
Now that I've found somewhere safe
To bury my bone.
And any fool knows a dog needs a home,
A shelter from pigs on the wing.

Neatly chiseled, well groomed, drop dead handsome face.

"You're sitting in your comfort you dont believe Im real,
You cannot buy protection from the way that I feel.
Your progressive hypocrites hand out their trash,
But it was mine in the first place, so Ill burn it to ash."

"When you fall in love with me
We can dig a hole by the willow tree
Then, I will *** you until you die
Bury you and kiss this town goodbye

It will be unhappy, it will be sad
But, it will be understood that I am bad!
So don't you go and lie to me
'Cause everyday is Judgment Day with me"

You may be right, I may be crazy, but it just might be a lunatic you're looking for
turn out the lights, don't try to save me, you may me wrong for all I know but you may be right.

"They say there's a heaven for those who wait
Some say it's better but I say it ain't
I'd rather laugh with the sinners
than die with the saints."

OMG...anything on that lp. Beginning to end, the perfect recording.
All those great songs on "Honky Dory" too...Love 'The Bewlay Brothers"..
I sing "Kooks" to my grandsons all the time!

"Je Suis Prest"

Kat's picture

Just look out around us
People fightin' their wars
They think they'll be happy
When they've settled their scores
Let's lay down our weapons
That hold us apart
Be still for just a minute
Try to open our hearts

More love, I can hear our hearts cryin'
More love, I know that's all we need
More love, to flow in between us
To take us and hold us and lift us above
If there's ever an answer
It's more love

Quick to judge, quick to anger.
Slow to understand.
Ignorance and prejudice
and fear walk hand in hand.

So get up, get, get get down
911 is a joke in yo town
Get up, get, get, get down
Late 911 wears the late crown

You say faith is a crutch for a mind that's closed,
but you guzzle your crutch and shove it up your nose.

"I lose a pill, and I'm wrecklessly reckin' the house
That was supposed to be breakfast, where the heck is it now
There's the neckless I lost, clingin' to Stephanie's blouse
Man I should check to see if my mom left any out
Nope, guess I'll re-route
Maybe somewhere in the depths of the couch
Oh, jackpot, yeah, open sesame mouth
Down the hatch, and the feelin' you can't match it"

When the king speaks, fishtown.us would be wise to listen.
