Your favourite song verse?

1,996 posts in this topic

Hello there, pilgrims.

What's your all-time fave verses from songs.. not the whole song, just a verse that has resonated with you. Obviously we'll all have many, but there's surely only a few that can at times make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end.

What are they? (if you don't mind me askin)

I love these words....

Come and lay down by my side

Till the early morning light

All Im taking is your time

Help me make it through the night

:)

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose

Nothin', it ain't nothin' honey, if it ain't free

And feelin' good was easy, Lord, when she sang the blues

You know feelin' good was good enough for me Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee

Hi there El! Good thread!

Here is my favourite:

Bring me sunshine in your smile bring me laughter all a while

In this world where we live there should be more happiness

So much joy you can give to each brand new bright tomorrow

Make me happy through the years never bring me any tears

Let your arms be as warm as the sun from up above

Bring me fun bring me sunshine and bring me love :wub:

"My life,

You electrify my life,

Let's conspire to ignite

All the souls that would die just to feel alive"

and

"And there will come a time,you'll see, with no more tears.

And love will not break your heart,but dismiss your fears.

Get over your hill and see what you find there,

With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair"

`Cause I`ve had my share of broken dreams

And more than a couple of falls

And in chasin` what I thought were moonbeams

I have run into a couple of walls

But in looking back at the faces I`ve been

I would sure be the first one to say

When I look at myself today

Wouldn`ta done it any other way

I used to travel a lot for work. Her lovin’ kept me sane. And still does.

I can hear her heart beat for a thousand miles

And the heavens open every time she smiles

And when I come to her that’s where I belong

Yet I’m running to her like a rivers song

She gives me love love love love crazy love

She’s got a fine sense of humor when I’m feelin low down

And when I come to her when the sun goes down

Take away my trouble take away my grief

Take away my heartache in the night like a thief

Yes I need her in the daytime

Yes I need her in the night

Yes I want to throw my arms around her

Kiss her hug her kiss her hug her tight

And when I’m returning from so far away

She gives me some sweet lovin’ brighten up my day

Yes, it makes me righteous, yes it makes me feel whole

Yes, it makes me mellow down into my soul

She gives me love love love love crazy love

Van Morrison

Sorry couldn't pick just one verse :no:

I look at the world and i notice its turning..

While my guitar gently weeps..

With every mistake we must surely be learning.

Still my guitar gently weeps..

One of the best Beatles tracks ever imo and by the vastly underused and missed George Harrison..

I find John Butlers words in Zebra very inspiring

It's not who breaks the ribbon boy

It's how you get across.

That lines always sticks with me.

Anyone ever sing the wrong words to a song for years and then find out what the real words are? I used to know a singer that sung p***in in a bottle yeah in The Cult's Little Devil which is a great song whilst it is being mentioned. I only heard the real lyrics to Wuthering Heights not all that long ago.

Damn that can be funny!

You should be counting your blessings

From the sky

Your eagle eyes found the great blind faith

I could be kicking the bucket

But you should know

I never had very good aim

(from stray cat strut)

I slink down the alley looking for a fight

Howling to the moonlight on a hot summer night

Singin' the blues while the lady cats cry,

"Wild stray cat, you're a real gone guy."

I wish I could be as carefree and wild,

but I got cat class and I got cat style

I wanna stand with you on a mountain

I wanna bathe with you in the sea

I wanna lay like this forever

Until the sky falls down on me

One track mind, like a goldfish,

Stuck inside my petri dish.

I can't breathe, and I can't smile,

This better be worth my while

When my love said to me..

Meet me down by the gallow tree..

For its sad news i bring..

About this old town and all thats its offering..

Some say troubles abound..

Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down..

One day we'll return here...

When the Belfast Child sings again..

Simple Minds(like me actually) .-. Belfast Child
