“You glorify the past when the future dries up”

“I have a will for survival, so you can hurt me then hurt me some more”

“Who can forgive forgiveness where forgiveness is not?”

“I’m alive, I’m being born, I just arrived”

“An angel in Devil's shoes, Salvation in the blues”

“You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl”

“I can’t be holding on to what you got, when all you got is hurt”

“Your voices will be heard”

“I could never take a chance, of losing love to find romance”

“It’s a beautiful day, don’t let it get away”

“The sky over our head, we can reach it from our bed”

“The sun is coming up on the ocean, this love is like a drop in the ocean”

“The worst of us are a long, drawn-out confession, the best of us are geniuses of compression”

“Where you live should not decide, whether you live or whether you die”

“It’s not a hill, it’s a mountain, as you start out the climb”

“Every generation gets a chance to change the world, pity the nation that won’t listen to your boys and girls”

“If I could, I would, let it go”

“You’ve gotta cry without weeping, talk without speaking, scream without raising your voice”

“If you walk away, I will follow”

“Sometimes, the end is not coming”

“I’m nearly great but there’s something missing”

“I’m hanging on, you’re all that’s left to hold onto”

“Love is big, it’s bigger than us”

“Angry words won’t stop the fight, two wrongs won’t make it right”

“Time won’t take the boy out of this man”

“Stop helping God across the road like a little old lady”

“Josephine, be careful of small men with big ideas”

“Not even news today, so many lost in the sea last night”

“I can’t believe the news today, I can’t close my eyes and make it go away”

“We’re the ghosts of love and we haunt this place”

“What you got they can’t steal it, no they can’t even feel it”

“I know it aches, how you heart it breaks”

“You can reach, but you can’t grab it”

“Slow down my beating heart, slowly love”

“You plant a demon seed, you raise a flower of fire”

“I’m not afraid of anything in this world, there’s nothing you can throw at me that I haven’t already heard”

“At the moment of surrender, of vision over visibility”

“One day I’ll die, the choice will not be mine”

“I’m not afraid to die, I’m not afraid to live”

“I’m a man, I’m not a child, a man who sees, the shadow behind your eyes”

“You’re the reason I sing, you’re the reason the opera is in me”

“Beneath the noise, below the din, I hear your voice, it’s whispering”

“The songs are in your eyes, I see them when you smile”

“I want the lot of what you got, and I want nothing that you’re not”

“Let me love you, let me rescue you, let me bring you where two roads meet”

"Take your head out of the mud baby.... Put flowers in the mud baby"

"I believe in the kingdom come, that all the colours will bleed into one"

"Well it's too late tonight to drag the past out into the light"

"We're one but we're not the same, we get to carry each other, carry each other"

"Time is a train - makes the future the past, leaves you standing in the rain with your face pushed up against the glass"

"Your love is teaching me how to kneel"

"What you don't have, you don't need it know, what you don't know you can feel it somehow"

"I know I'm not a hopeless case"

"And if you save your love, save it all - save it all"

"Of science and the human heart, there is no limit"

"You're the reason why the opera is in me"

"I'll show you a place with no sorrow or pain..... Where the streets have no name"

"I'll see you again when the stars fall from the sky and the moon has turned red over one tree hill"

"You're all that's left to hold onto"

"I can lose myself, you I can't live without"

"They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon, you know I don't see her when she walks in the room"

"I remember when we could sleep on stone, now we lie together in whispers and moans"

"And the battle's just begun, there's many lost, but tell me who has won?"

Okay, okay.....I kid, I kid.  Here are some of my actual favorites.

All the promises we make from the cradle to the grave when all I want is you - All I want is you

It's what lovers deal, it's what lovers steal, you know I found it hard to receive, 'cause you, my love, I could never believe  - Please

Her skin is pale like God's only dove. Screams like an angel for your love. Then she makes you watch her from above. And you need her like a drug.  - So Cruel (any lyric from So Cruel would make my top list)

I did not notice the passersby and they did not notice me.

mother-f**king rock and roll

we're the ghosts of love and we haunt this place... everyone's here with me tonight... everyone but you

can you hear me when I sing... you're the reason I sing... you're the reason why the opera's in me. {gives me chills every time}
