Thread Name: The Best Song Lines EVER--For Us Newbies
Subject: RE: The Best Song Lines EVER--For Us Newbies
Oh so many!

One that always moves me is a line from 'She Moves Through the Fair.' which goes...

"She's gone her way homeward with one star awake. Like a swan in the evening moves over the lake."

Don't know why but it gives me a really beautiful tingle in the heart.

One that amazes me with it's audacity and the fact that it became popular is from a Guns 'n' Roses song ( and I use that nomenclature advisedly).

"....I used to love her, but I had to kill her, now she's buried in ma bayck yaarrrddd." Sheesh! Who gets off on that crap?
