« on: January 08, 2011, 09:19:13 PM »
I was reading through another topic and their was a breif discussion about favorite lines, so I figured it would be fun to start a thread about.

Here are some of mine.
 
I drove around for hours, I drove around for days
I drove around for months and years and never went no place. (Modest Mouse, Interstate 8)
 
Life it rents us
And yeah I hope it put plenty on you
Well I hope mine did too. (Modest Mouse, The View)
 
As life gets longer, awful feels softer
And it feels pretty soft to me
And if it takes shit to make bliss
Well I feel pretty blissfully. (Modest Mouse, The View)
 
I backed my car into a cop car the other day.
Well he just drove off, sometimes life's OK. (Modest Mouse, Float On)
 
I could at least name another fifty Modest Mouse lines, as I feel nobody comes close to Isacc Brock in terms of wity writing. That would be boring, so I will name other bands.
 
Sometimes you would send me a birthday card with a five dollar bill, I never understood you and I guess I never will. ( Everclear, Father of Mine)
 
Ten long years in a straight line
They fall like water
Yes, I guess I fucked up again. (Everclear, Strawberry)
 
There is always gonna be someone better than me
I guess i never had a chance. (Everclear, The New Disease)

I'm sure I can think of loads more better ones I like, but these are the first ones that come to mind:

Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You aint a beauty, but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me - Springsteen, Thunder Road

Come pick me up   
Take me out   
Fuck me up   
Steal my records   
Screw all my friends   
They're all full of shit   
With a smile on your face   
And then do it again   
I wish you would    - Come Pcik me up, Ryan Adams (I love all the lyrics in this song)


She could pull the sunlight through me - Counting Crows, Miami

Well, maybe there's a god above 
but all i've ever learned from love 
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you   - Hallelujah, Leonard Cohen (Jeff Buckley)

So keep your bankroll lottery eat your salad day deathbed motorcade

My pain is self-chosen
  At least I believe it to be
  I could either drown
  Or pull off my skin and swim to the shore
  Now I can grow a beautiful shell for all to see

When I find my piece of mind, I am going to give you some of my good time. (RHCP, Soul to Squeeze)
 
Yes I live for the day when I can hear you say
You make me feel like a whore. (Everclear, You Make Me Feel Like a Whore)

I think I lost my smile
I think you lost yours too. (Everclear, Summerland) Check out the whole song, my favorite lyrics of any song, ever!
 
I heard the policeman say
Just another overdose, Just another overdose! (Everclear, Heroin Girl) This lyric is not clever, but you have to understand the context. Art's brother died of a heroin overdose and he was coming back from somewhere, when he arrived he saw the police on the street, to find out his brother had died. He then heard the cop say "just another overdose". He says it once, then screams it as if he is saying "just another overdose that it my fucking brother." Great line when you listen to the song and understand it.

I loved them all through high school.  After 2002 STP took over and became my fav band but I have some great memories listening to sparkle and fade and so much for the afterglow

Mother, you had me, but I never had you,
I wanted you, but you didn't want me,
So I got to tell you,
Goodbye, goodbye.
Father, you left me, but I never left you,
I needed you, but you didn't need me,
So I got to tell you,
Goodbye, goodbye

Scott Weiland aside...

"Where it's pointless to be high 'cause it's such a long way down"  All the madmen - Bowie

"And don't look at me with those eyes, I can't seem to find the right lie" - I can't see your face in my mind, one of many by Morrison

"When we get back, I'll drop a line" The Crystal Ship - The Doors (the entire song actually, but always loved the way it ends)

"Tell everyone waiting for Superman
That they should hold on as best they can
He hasn't dropped them, forgot them, or anything
It's just too heavy for Superman to lift"
Waiting for a superman - The Flaming Lips

"My ship leaves in the midnight can't say I'll be back too soon"  Seasons of wither - Aerosmith

"Maybe there's a God above but all I've ever learned from love was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you" hallelujah - Leonard Cohen

"You gave me three cigarettes to smoke my tears away" Cheers darlin' - Damien Rice
"We grew with the speed of light but crashed in the night"

"But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes that will cut you to ribbons sometimes." - Here's Looking At You, Kid - The Gaslight Anthem

"Do I trust my heart or trust my mind? Why is truth so hard to find in this world?" - Stare At The Sun - Thrice

Basically any lyric by those two bands are real quality.

Arguably my favorite Aerosmith song. Other nights, it's Lord of the Thighs. Yesterday it was Dream On. FINE just oooooozes sex!!

Dedicated. Disgusting. Disturbing.

I'm just sittin' on this merry-go-round, and the music is too loud..
