    oh could go for days and days. but as of right now i can say....
    "cannot seem to make the dots connect..."
    "I know i coulda been something had i held on..."
    "put it in my pocket when it shoulda been framed..."
    "all this hope and nowhere to go...this is how...i used to feel...but no more..." (this one gets me when I feel there's no use!)
    many more i'll catch y'all later on this one!

  • My favourite is "Don't see some men as half-empty - see them as half full of shit..."

    Also, "Everything you imagined needn't be stuck in your mind"
  • I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky but why can't it be mine?

    I miss you already

    my first favourite line by Peal Jam was from light Years
    'no time to be void or save upon life
    you've gotta spend it all'
    and there are many others...
    i like almost every song by pj i have ever heard... i'm just sorry there are a lot of that i couldn't hear
    of course, there are some non-pj lines that i like, but they're not in english, so i will not post them at this time
    ' turn to my nemesis, a fool not a fucking god'
    Pearl Jam pieces...

    yeah it's pretty hard to come down to one line isn't it?

    plus they kinda at different moments of your life different songs (and lines) are important......and they just all f*ckin roooooooooooooooooooock!!!!!!!!!!

    squrrel, you read my mind...

    the one i'm into right now:

    any new realizations would have to wait til he had more time, more time...

    time to dream, to himself, he waves goodbye, to himself
    i'll see you on the other side... another man...moved by sleight of hand...

    ok, i may be crazy for reading all 16 pages posted...
    there are some lines that nobody mentiones and i really like them..

    There's a girl on a ledge, who's got nowhere to turn
    Because all the love that she had was just wood that she burned

    It's like she's lost the invitation to the party on earth

    Yeah she's her own disease, crying to her doll
    But only love...can break her fall

    It's out of my hands, making your hands meet

    My will is crashing, synapses flashing slow

    the human tide rolls in
    like a ball that's spinning

    I was alone and far away, hey..
    when I heard the band start playin'
    on the lip...late take off (this one i love)

    I pledge my grievance to the flag
    cause you don't give blood then take it back again

    On the edge of a know-nothin' town
    Feelin' quite superior, the aged come

    After all is done, and we're still alone
    I won't be taken, yet I'll go...

    so much talk it makes no sense at all

    You are a tower, of strength to me
    The darkening hour, sees light again

    Love is a tower, of strength to me
    I am the shoreline, but you're the sea

    and so many more....
    Pearl Jam pieces...

    he looks just like me, a mirror

    the more you read we've been deceived..
    yeah every day it becomes clearer

    not my enemey
    no not my enemy
    dont speak for me

    I'll ride the wave where it takes me
    I'll hold the pain...Release me"
    - Release

    I know I was born and I know that I'll die
    the in between is MINE!

    and like weeds with big leaves
    stealing life from whats beneath

    and I'm not living life without you, I'm selfish and clear
    and your not leaving here without me, I don't wanna be without my best friend.

    you been taught whipped into shape now they got you in-line
    stand behind the stripes, there will be order, so give up your mind.

    hold me and make it the truth
    cause when all is lost there will you
    cause to the universe I don't mean a thing
    and there's just one word that I still believe and its love.

    lots and lots of them
    No need to be void, or save up on life

    You got to spend it all

    love can keep on moving in both directions....

  • lost his faith in love and tremor christ.
  • I will hold the candle, til it burns up my arm. I'll keep taking punches until their will grows tired.

    Screw it. The whole damn song is one amazing lyric to me.

    Pearl Jam pieces...

  • "Don't need a hand, there's always arms attached."
  • there are so many...

    today the song grievance means the most to me.
  • its from the state college boot... I've loved you for as long as i've known you, I've loved you and I'll always need you..." then what really brings tears to my eyes is the save it for later thing where at the end ed cries out "don't let me down"... I get all watery eyed and sad, it takes me back to when the love of my life left me behind... you could say that she let me down...
    I wish I was the verb to trust and never let you down.

    It's VERY VERY hard but these two at the moment:


  • "and he who forgets, will be destined to remember"

    me you wouldn't recall, cause i'm not my former.
  • All that's sacred comes from youth, Dedications naive and true

    Standin' like a statue, a chin of stone, a heart of clay

    Seek my part, devote myself, my small self, like a book amongst the many on the shelf
    Become a vehicle that blossoms truth and freedom

    Won't let the darkness swallow me." - Down
