NLOTH-- what's your favorite lines?
« on: March 01, 2009, 09:46:37 AM »

Here's mine............

Only love
Only love can leave such a mark

But only love
Only love can heal such a scar
…..
Only love unites our hearts





Of vision over visibility

Escape yourself and gravity
Hear me, cease to speak that I may speak

Every beauty needs to go out with an idiot

It’s not a hill, it’s a mountain
As we start out the climb
Listen for me, I’ll be shouting
Shouting to the darkness
Squeeze out sparks of light


I gotta stand up to ego but my ego’s not really the enemy
It’s like a small child crossing an eight lane highway
On a voyage of discovery

God is love
And love is evolution’s very best day

Who can forgive forgiveness where forgiveness is not
Only the lamb as white as snow

I wasn’t gonna buy just anyone’s cockatoo

But I’m running down the road like loose electricity

We are people borne of sound
The songs are in our eyes
Gonna wear them like a crown

Laughter is eternity
If joy is real

We’re into growing up
Women of the future
Hold the big revelations

Let me in the sound, sound
Meet me in the sound

Choose your enemies carefully ‘cos they will define you

Justify
Til we die
You and I
Will magnify

Women of the future hold the big revelations

Magnificent and Boots are the only 2 songs I've heard.  Trying to abstain until Tuesday

Every night I have the same dream
I’m hatching some plot, scheming some scheme
Oh yeah

Justified till we die
You and I will magnify

Oh, the magnificent

Magnificent

I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

Hear me, cease to speak that I may speak
Shush now

Lights flash past
Like memories
A speeding head, a speeding heart
I’m being born, a bleeding start
The engines roar, blood-curdling wail
Head first, then foot
Then heart sets sail

Now the wolves are every passing stranger
Every face we cannot know

Every day I die again, and again I’m reborn
Every day I have to find the courage
To walk out into the street
With arms out
Got a love you can’t defeat
Neither down nor out
There’s nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe now

Choose your enemies carefully ‘cos they will define you
Make them interesting ‘cos in some ways they will mind you
They’re not there in the beginning but when your story ends
Gonna last with you longer than your friends

The roar that lies on the other side of silence
The forest fire, that is fear so deny it

Quite a few lyrics from Magnificent I see - have to say it's my fav on the album

I was born
I was born to sing for you
I didn’t have a choice but to lift you up
And sing whatever song you wanted me to
I give you back my voice
From the womb my first cry, it was a joyful noise

I was speeding on the subway thru the stations of the cross.

Is anyone else bothered by the "ATM machine" line?  Not that is doesn't sound right but the M in ATM stands for machine, so they are basically saying machine twice.

I was punching in the numbers,at the Automatic Teller Machine...I guess that doesn't work either.

Same here - I'm incredibly fussy about grammar. But I still love the song!

As for favourite lyrics, I have many, but these ones just stand out for me:
"Choose your enemies carefully ‘cause they will define you
Make them interesting ‘cause in some ways they will mind you
They’re not there in the beginning but when your story ends

I love lots of lines on the CD but my absolute favorite right now is

"The roar that lies on the other side of silence"

others that i like:

"Like we had years instead of days"

"Every night I have the same dream,
I'm hatching some plot, scheming some scheme"
