1 It says home is where your heart is, But what a shame, Cause everyones heart doesn't beat the same - Jesus of Suburbia
Green Day have so many inspirational and meaningful lyrics, especially in Jesus of Suburbia, but this is undoubtedly the best line from a Green Day song ever.
All of Green Day's songs have this "do what you want and don't let other people's opinions affect you" vibe and I love it! I feel like it's telling us that it's okay to be different and want something different from life than the people around us.
This is my all time favorite, who didn't cheer when they heard this. - garretthernandez
2 It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right, I hope you had the time of your life - Good Riddance (Time of your life)
People don't like this song because it's overplayed and that is true but it's still a great song and the lyrics are beautiful
Most beautiful song ever
3 Oh therapy, can you please fill the void, am I retarded or am i just overjoyed - Jesus of Suburbia
The best - wriddhak

8 Dearly beloved, are you listening? I can't remember a word that you were saying. Are we demented or am I disturbed? The space that's in between insane and insane - Jesus of Suburbia.
Insane and insecure-it is
I was about to make the same comment!

11 Im sick to death of your every last breath and i don't give a f*** anyway - Let Yourself Go
I just love this line... In fact this whole song is so good that I can't stop myself listening to it...! Every nomination of this list is too good that I'm gonna vote each nomination.. Billie and co., every time I listen to your music it just rocks my world... I forget my every tension... I listen to them in every situation I'm in... Whether I'm in pleasant situation or whatever... Green day is my life... Blood in my veins and Billie is love of my life... Hell yeah Green day forever

14 I made a point to burn all of the photographs, she went away and then I took a different path, I remember the face but I can't recall the name, now I wonder how Whatsername has been... - Whatsername
Great lyrics in this song my favorite one is “remember whatever it seems like forever ago... and in the darkest night if my memory serves me right I’ll never turn back time forgetting you but not the time”

15 Here comes the rain again, falling from the stars, drenched in my pain again becoming who we are. - Wake Me Up When September Ends
These are the rawest lyrics I have heard for Green Day
16 With money to burn on a minimum wage, well, i don't give a s*** about the modern age - American Eulogy (Mass Hysteria, Modern World)
This is an extremely powerful line. This line brings back one of the biggest themes in American Idiot. The way our world is depending on technological advances and that we just need to be able to live how we want to. How society is now is we all are basically forced to adapt to the modern world. This line is one of the many in American Eulogy that really gives the biggest explanation about nearly the entire album of 21st Century Breakdown.

Beautiful. Billie Joe kind of paints a Van Gogh wih words. 11/10

I love this quote it has such a powerful meaning for the thoughts of the past!
I love dis line
19 Did you try to live on your own? When you burned down the house and home? Did you stand too close to the fire? Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone
This line is the best ever line billie ever wrote..! Whenever I'm disturbed, this line in fact this song makes me feel like there is someone around me, that cares for me,... Yeah this is quiet stupid... But Green day has helped me recover from all the drama of life... They are everything to me..!
