Your favourite line or verse from a song

From Pink Floyds ‘Comfortably Numb’

When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb

      “Fill your heart with love today, don’t play the game of time. Things that happened in the past, only happened in your mind, only in your mind, so forget your mind and you’ll be free”

      A gypsy wind is blowing warm tonight
      The sky is starlit and the time is right
      And still you’re tellin’ me you have to go
      Before you leave there’s something you should know
      Yeah, something you should know babe

      “They are not long the days of wine and roses
      Out of a misty dream
      Our path emerges for a while, then closes
      Within a dream”

      The full lyrics to Vincent by Don McClean.

      Such a beautiful but sad song.

      Starry, starry night
      Paint your palette blue and gray
      Look out on a summer’s day
      With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
      Shadows on the hills
      Sketch the trees and the daffodils
      Catch the breeze and the winter chills
      In colors on the snowy, linen land
      Now, I understand what you tried to say to me
      And how you suffered for your sanity
      And how you tried to set them free
      They would not listen, they did not know how
      Perhaps they’ll listen now
      Starry, starry night
      Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
      Swirling clouds in violet haze
      Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue
      Colors changing hue
      Morning fields of amber grain
      Weathered faces lined in pain
      Are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand
      Now, I understand, what you tried to say to me
      How you suffered for your sanity
      How you tried to set them free
      They would not listen, they did not know how
      Perhaps they’ll listen now
      For they could not love you
      But still your love was true
      And when no hope was left inside
      On that starry, starry night
      You took your life as lovers often do
      But I could have told you, Vincent
      This world was never meant for one
      As beautiful as you
      Starry, starry night
      Portraits hung in empty halls
      Frameless heads on nameless walls
      With eyes that watch the world and can’t forget
      Like the strangers that you’ve met
      The ragged men in ragged clothes
      The silver thorn of bloody rose
      Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow
      Now, I think I know what you tried to say to me
      How you suffered for your sanity
      How you tried to set them free
      They would not listen, they’re not listening still
      Perhaps they never will

      You can be anything you want to be

      Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be

      Be free with your tempo be free be free

      Surrender your ego be free be free to yourself

      Extract from “Innuendo” by Queen

      There’s a good life
      Right across the green fields
      And each generation
      Stares at it from afar
      But we keep no check
      On our appetites
      So the green fields turn to brown
      Like paper in fire

      John Mellencamp- Paper in Fire

      Well the young queen, she fixed him with an arrogant eye
      She said, “You won’t understand, and you may as well not try”
      But her face was a child’s, and he thought she would cry
      But she closed herself up like a fan

      Suzanne Vega – The Queen and the Soldier

      I want to be the girl with the most cake
      I love him so much, it just turns to hate
      I fake it so real I am beyond fake
      And someday you will ache like I ache

      Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’
      ‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
      But time makes you bolder
      Even children get older
      And I’m getting older too

      Fleetwood Mac – Landslide

      Well I’ll be dammed
      here comes your ghost again
      but that’s not unusual
      it’s just that the moon is full
      and you happened to call

      Joan Baez.

    • Dead Poet 8th November 2021 at 9:05 am

      There are just so many lines from songs i love , i could quote all day long & probably all night 🙂

    • Lunamoon 8th November 2021 at 2:59 pm

      To many to choose from I’ll get back to you when I hear the relevant one

    • Dead Poet 9th November 2021 at 9:50 am

      I guess it’s also the time, the place & who you were with, years on you hear that song & those lyrics that take you back to that moment to a time you thought was forever & now just a bitter sweet memory.

      So Many options from the Pink Floyd back catalogue, here’s a couple

      One day older, one day closer to death (Time)

      It doesn’t have to be this way, all we have to do is keep talking (Keep Talking)

      But I think my all time favourite lyric is from Seasick Steve –

      “I was born with nothing, and I’ve still got most of it left!”

    • Shell69 23rd November 2021 at 4:26 pm

      When I see your face
      There’s not a thing that I would change
      Cause you’re amazing
      Just the way you are
      And when you smile
      The whole world stops for a while…….

      Bruno Mars

      Sorry, it’s a bit soppy !!
