The Top TenXW

1"When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look but it was gone, I cannot put my finger on it now. The child is grown, the dream is gone." - Comfortably Numb

How did I know this was going to be #1? Because it's the best lyric they ever wrote. Beautiful lyric, beautiful song, beautiful album. - BKAllmighty

2 "And then one day you find ten years have got behind you. No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun." – Time

And then one day you find ten years have got behind you. No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

Brilliant lyrics. No more words for it.

3"For long you live and high you fly, and smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry, and all you touch and all you see is all your life will ever be." - Breathe
4"It was only a fantasy. The wall was too high as you can see. No matter how he tried he could not break free, and the worms ate into his brain." - Hey You
5"Encumbered forever by desire and ambition, there's a hunger still unsatisfied. Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon, though down this road we've been so many times." - High Hopes
6"So you think you can tell heaven from hell, blue skies from pain. Can you tell a green field from cold steel rail? A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell?" - Wish You Were Here

Love these lyrics. Simply the best.

7"Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air. And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves an echo of a distant time comes willowing across the sand... And everything is green and submarine." - Echoes

I seem to be one of the only people that favors Echoes, personally I think it exceeds all others. - Beatlesboy9

8"If the cloud bursts thunder in your ear, you shout and no one seems to hear. And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes, I'll see you on the dark side of the moon." - Brain Damage

There is no dark side in the moon, really. Matter of fact, it's all dark. - PetSounds

9"The prisoner who now stands before you was caught red handed showing feelings, showing feelings of almost human nature. This will not do." - The Trial

For a time I could recite this entire song! Except for the schoolteacher's section. I could never completely understand what he was saying. - higgsboson2142

10"And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too, I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon" – Brain Damage

The whole song is perfect; this is one of my favorite parts, though, I must say.
