Some of you I've noticed note a great line from some songs....
For me, one of the best was in Dylan's "Chimes of Freedom"..I flipped when I heard it...never can get it out of my head...

"Starry eyed and laughing as I recall when were caught
Trapped by no track of hours for they hang suspended"....

That and the lyrics by Reed in the VU..Sweet Jane here...

"Standing on the corner
Suitcase in my hand
Jack's in his corset,Jane's in her vest
Me, honey, I'm in a rock'n'roll band
Riding in a Stutz bearcat,jim
Those were different times
They studied rules of verse
And those ladies they just rolled their eyes"

man I think this is just one of the best in all of rock when it's linked with his music......

rocker,

Good Lyric selections but I'm afraid I have to go with the bard of Stretford for my lyrical inspiration. His words always resonate with me coming from Manchester

Farewell to this lands cheerless marshes
Penned in like a between a boar between arches
Her very lowness with her head in her sling
I'm very sorry but it sound like a wonderful thing

do you like the part you're playing?"

"When she wakes up in the morning
She writes down all her dreams
Reads like the book of revelations
Or the Beano or the unabridged ulysses"

Courtesy of Doherty and Barat. My opinion of Pete Doherty has severely declined in recent years but I have to admit his lyrical talents are up there with the best.

This is the time and this is the time and it is time, time, time, time, time, time, time.....

great lyric Kula John, i think "What a waster" is the ilberteens best track, i have "up the bracket",and like "can,t stand me now" but i don,t rate Mr. Docherty, or what he stands for these days.
I have to have a think about my favourite lyric, although......
"hanging on in quiet desparation is the English way" from Floyd,s Dark side of the moon has allways struck a chord with mw

I think "Can't Stand me Know" is Pete's best lyric, I agree about the Floyd lyric but I think "Dogs" lyrically is the best thing Roger ever wrote

Brave dreams
That are kindled from ashes
Rise out over all the battle below
Spread wings over all that he passes
So his life can stay immortal to his country
All the shades of green that fall beneath this tree
So let the winds of change
That rearrange the country
Let it also sow a seed of memory

Through the rhythm of darkened time

Painted black by knowledge crime

And repetition's pointless mime

Instilling values the sick define

It weaves the fabric that keeps you blind

And ties your hands and coats your mind

But on my stilts I'm above the slime

Come on up if you can make the climb

But who am I?

Who am I?

Who am I?

WOW!! This was a hard one..nearly went with natures way by Spirit, and loads of others...but after loads of soul searching (l.o.l).......

This is the time of life
That i am living
And i,ll face each day with a smile...
(A.L.)

May you never lay your head down
Without a hand to hold
May you never make your bed out in the cold
May you never lose your temper
If you get hit in a bar _room fight
May you never lose your woman overnight

This is my favourite -

Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac - Oh Well (part one)

I can't help about the shape I'm in,
I can't sing I ain't pretty and my legs are thin,
But don't ask me what I think of you,
I might not give the answer that you want me to.........Oh well!

Now when I talked to god I knew he'd understand,
He said stick by me and I'll be your guiding hand,
But don't ask me what I think of you,
I might not give the answer that you want me to........Oh well!
