Single Line/verse Of A Song

Recommended Posts

Soo we all have our favourite Matthew Good lyrics, but how about your favourite single lines or verses from other artists?

 

Alexisonfire-Get Fighted

So make sure you love

Like you've never been hurt

And when you dance, dance

Like there's no one watching you

 

Oh, 'cuz this shit's not about pants

And this shit's not about shirts

And this shit's definitely not about hair

(This shit is 'bout having a good fucking time)

Maybe the music isn't dead

Maybe the music isn't dead

Maybe we all just forgot what it fucking sounded like

 

<3 I sing it at the top of my lungs like every time!! ;)

Stuck in the middle of the road

for better or worse we'd compromise

You may have won my hand, dear

She lives with a broken man

A cracked polystyrene man

Who just crumbles and burns

 

He used to do surgery

On girls in the eighties

But gravity always wins

Underoath's "Reinventing Your Exit"

"12th and Hyde on a Sunday

Feeling like we're gold

And we're nothing short of invincible

 

It starts again

Can you feel it?

It takes your breath away

Stop saying that we're invincible

(it's round and round)

You're uninviting, unrewarding

And I'm misinforming you

 

We all wanna be, wanna be somebody

Right now we're just looking for the exit

This is the way I would have done things

Up against the wall

You've got me up against your wall"

Weezer:Undone - The Sweater Song

if you want to destroy my sweater

Hold this thread as I walk away

Watch me unravel Ill soon be naked

Lying on the floor, Ive come undone

 

Unwritten law:Seeing Red

So follow the leader down

And swallow your pride and drown

When there's no place left to go

Maybe thats when you will know

 

Unwritten Law: Save Me

And I'm sick of my sickness

Dont touch me, you'll get this.

I'm useless, lazy, perverted,

and you hate me.

 

Damien Rice: Rootless Tree

FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU

and all we've been through.

I said leave it, leave it, leave it,

it's nothing to you.

And if you hate me, hate me, hate me, hate me so good

that you just let me out

let me out, let me out?

Its hell when you're around.

Let me out, let me out, let me out.

Hell when you're around.

Let me out, let me out, let me out.

 

City & Colour:Day Old Hate

I Fall, I Fall, I Falter

 

Those are just a few..there are many more lol!

U2-One

 

Have you come here for forgiveness,

Have you come to raise the dead

Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much, more than a lot

You gave me nothing, now it's all I got.

We're one, but we're not the same.

Well, we hurt each other, then we do it again.

 

Soundgarden-Burden In My Hand

 

Close your eyes and bow your head

I need a little sympathy

Cause fear is strong and love's for everyone

Who isn't me

So kill your health and kill yourself

And kill everything you love

And if you live you can fall to pieces

And suffer with my ghost

Nine Inch Nails- Something I can Never Have

In this place it seems like such a shame

though it all looks different now

I know it's still the same

everywhere I look

you're all I see

Just a fading fucking reminder

of who I used to be.

If you were marked with a bullet

I'd jump in front of it

I'd rather die for love than die for the want of it

Forever alive, forever forward

I have no use at all for any more words

 

With A Bullet - Sam Roberts

 

 

you're looking for a love

that will see you through your darkest days

and her soft brown hair

is as long as the Canadian highway

 

Hard Road - Sam Roberts

 

I keep trying, but I'm not satisfied

I'm not crying, I've got something in my eye

death cab for cutie-i will follow you into the dark

 

if heaven and hell decide

that they both are satisfied

illuminate the nos on their vacancy signs

if there's no one beside you

when your soul embarks

then i'll follow you into the dark

 

-it's sappy mush, but i love it.

Sorrow drips into your heart through a pinhole

Just like a faucet that leaks and there is comfort in the sound

While you debate half empty of half full, it slowly rises, your love is gunna drown

Matt Mays-Time of Your Life

 

One dark night walkin' home alone

A strange woman came down to me

Dressed in white and under a halo of golden light

She said 'boy you've got it all wrong you've got to concentrate more on the party and song'

I'll never forget the last thing she said

She said 'have the time of your life 'til you're dead'

 

Do you think you can be saved

Or is it too late for you?

With everything you have

And everything that you do

Now time will lock you away,

Yeah and throw away the key

But there ain't not a lock that can hold me

Have the time of your life 'til your dead

 

Die tryin'

 

Matt Mays-Wicked Come Winter

 

The northern lights in the skies at night

The attention they demand

Boats and Birds by Gregory and the Hawk

 

if you be my star i'll be your sky

you can hide underneath me and come out at night

when i turn jet black and you show off your light

but you can sky rocket away from me

and never come back if you find another galaxy

far from here, with more room to fly

just leave me your stardust to remember you by

if you be my boat i'll be your sea

a depth of pure blue just to probe curiosity

ebbing and flowing and pushed by a breeze

i live to make you free

but you can set sail to the west if you want to

and past the horizon til i can't even see you

far from here where the beaches are wide

just leave me your wake to remember you by

Besides Matthew Good...

 

Gatsbys American Dream - You All Everybody

 

"I hate this place and all these guys and their fancy clothes

it doesn't seem like music at all"

 

The Shins - Caring is Creepy

 

"Hold your glass up, hold it in, never betray the way you've always known it is."

 

Death Cab For Cutie - Your Heart is an Empty Room

 

"And all you see is where else you could be when you're at home, there on the street are so many possibilities to not be alone"

 

Sex Pistols - E.M.I

 

"Don't judge a book just by the cover

Unless you cover just another

And blind acceptance is a sign

Of stupid fools who stand in line

Like

 

E.M.I E.M.I E.M.I"

 

And plenty more I can't think of.

i can't pick just one part of this song, so here's 'struck a nerve' by bad religion.

 

There's an old man on a city bus

Holding a candy cane

And it isn't even christmas

He see's a note in the obituary

That his last friend has died

There's an infant clinging

To his overweight mother in the cold

As they go to shop for cigarettes

And she spends her last dollar

On a bottle of vodka for tonight

And I guess it struck a nerve

Like I had to squint my eyes

You can never get out

Of the line of sight

Like a barren winter day

Or a patch of unburned green

Like a tragic real dream

I guess it struck a nerve

 

Every day I wander

In negative disposition

As I'm bombarded by superlatives

Realizing very well that I am not alone

Introverted

I look to tomorrow for salvation

But I'm thinking altruistically

And a wave of overwhelming doubt

Turns me to stone

And I guess it struck a nerve

Sent a murmur to my heart

We just haven't got time

To crack the maze

Like a magic speeding clock

Or a cancer in our cells

A collision in the dark

I guess it struck a nerve

 

I try to close my eyes

But I cannot ignore the stimuli

If theres a purpose for us all

It remains a secret to me

Don't ask me to justify my life

The Afghan Whigs-Be For Real

So don't give me the world today

and then tomorrow take it away

 

The Afghan Whigs- Neglekted

Intoxicated, by your aggression

I offer you my one possession

You can fuck my body, baby

But pleeze, don't fuck my mind

 

Cranberries- Linger

You know Im such a fool for you

You got me wrapped around your finger

Do you have to let it linger

My heart is broke

But I have some glue

Help me inhale

And mend it with you

 

Billy Talent-Surrender

Even though I know what I'm looking for

She's got a brick wall behind her door

I'd travel time and confess to her

But I'm afraid she'd shoot the messenger

Jealousy's a bad invention

When you push on glass, it's bound to break

fresh in my mind, from brand new:

 

from limosine:

do me a favour, baby, don't reply

cuz i can dish it out, but i can't take it

 

from the arches bows are broken:

who do you carry a torch for my young man?

do you believe in anything?

do you carry it around just to burn things down?

FCPREMIX by the Fall of Troy

 

Slow down!

This is slippin' through my mind

This conversation has run out of time.

 

Honey,

I know you know what I mean,

And that's the one thing that you soon will find

 

I know

That you really wanna go,

My mind is runnin' outta gas just relax and recap and relapse tonight.

 

My body's jumpin' and I,

Go through the motions,

And I'm leaving on this journey,

Maybe someday I'll come running home to you!

 

I don't wanna see the day,

My words cannot make it safe. (Come running home, come running home!)

Her heart, in my hands,

It's too bad.

No regrets.

I don't wanna see the day,

Her tears are falling on my grave. (Come running home, come running home!)

This is my one chance to take back.

No regrets.

 

Let's go!

I just wanna let you know,

This situation leaves me outta breath.

 

We'll drive

'til the love that's in your eyes,

Drops to the ground, unravels like a thread.

 

I know

That you really wanna go,

I only think about her, must get to her, cannot lose her.

You know,

That I will not let this die,

Life support systems and my mind on Rewind and Rewind and REWIND!

 

I don't wanna see the day,

My words cannot make it safe. (Come running home, come running home!)

Her heart, in my hands,

It's too bad.

No regrets.

I don't wanna see the day,

Her tears are falling on my grave. (Come running home, come running home!)

This is my one chance to take back.

No regrets.

Coheed & Cambria: Wake Up

 

I'm going to ride this plane out of your life again.

I wish that I could stay but you argue.

More than this I wish you could've seen my face

In backseat staring out the window.

 

I'll do anything for you,

Kill anyone for you.

 

So leave yourself intact

'Cause I will be coming back.

In a phrase to cut these lips,

I love you.

 

The morning will come

In the press of every kiss

With your head upon my chest

Where I will annoy you

With every waking breath

Until you decide to wake up.

 

I've earned through hope and faith

The curves around your face

That I'm the one you'll hold forever.

If morning never comes for either one of us,

Then this I pray to you wherever.

 

I'll do anything for you.

This story is for you.

('Cause I'd do anything you want me to... for you.)

I'll do anything for you,

Kill anyone for you.

 

So leave yourself intact

'Cause I won't be coming back.

In a phrase to cut these lips,

I loved you.
