^Love that second line. "I guess it's the price of love, I know it's not cheap..."

"The more you take the less you feel. The less you know the more you believe."

"I want to be the song that you hear in your head."

And on a similar note: "The songs in your head are now on my mind. You put me on pause, I try to rewind..."

"Walk out into a sunburst street. Sing your heart out. Sing my heart out."

October:
"October and the trees are stripped bare
Of all they wear.
What do I care?

October and kingdoms rise
And kingdoms fall
But you go on
And on."

If God Will Send His Angels:
"Jesus never let me down
You know Jesus used to show me the score.
Then they put Jesus in show business
Now it's hard to get in the door."

Kite:
"In summer I can taste the salt in the sea
There's a kite blowing out of control on a breeze
I wonder what's gonna happen to you
You wonder what has happened to me."

Probably the whole of Stay, Faraway so Close.  I generally like most of the lyrics on the album Zooropa, but that song is the best. 

If I had to choose specific lyrics, I'd probably go for the following (different song):

My father is a rich man
He wears a rich man's cloak
Gave me the keys to his kingdom coming
Gave me a cup of gold

He said I have many mansions
And there are many rooms to see
But I left by the back door
And I threw away the key

I love the lyrics from Lemon!

"And these are the days when our work has come asunder
And these are the days when we look for something other"

Also In A Little While...

"Man dreams one day to fly
A man takes a rocketship into the skies
He lives on a star that's dying in the night
And follows in the trail
The scatter of light"
