Best Closing Lyrics In Songs

Every good movie, game, show needs a good ending! And it's nothing different with songs. That's why I count down the 10 greatest closing lines in songs!

The Top Ten

1 "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave" Hotel California - The Eagles

Classic line of a classic in the Rock genre! Also one of the best guitar solos and outros ever! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

Of course. Probably no other contender for the #1 spot.

2 "And I'm going down all the way I'm on the Highway to Hell" Highway To Hell - AC/DC

COOLEST HARD ROCK OUTRO EVER! I love Angus Youngs insane solo at the end! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

3 "There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark." Eclipse - Pink Floyd

I love Dark Side of the Moon and this was an amazing closing line to the entire album! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

4 "Yesterday seems as though it never existed. Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye. Goodbye..." - Metallica, Fade to Black

So depressing in such a sad song! You can feel the hopelessness of it and it's followed by an amazing Hammet solo! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

5 "Any way the wind blows" Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Bohemian Rhapsody = greatest lyrics ever
And the closure is no exception! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

6 "I turned around, saw a light shining through. The door was wide open" The Glass Prison - Dream Theater

This is one of my favorite lines in Dream Theater songs! Unlike Fade To Black it's more of an happy ending to the song! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

7 "Can't stop the spirits, when they need you. This life is more than just a read - through." Can't Stop - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Sums up the entire dynamic song in one single closing line! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

8 "A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial" Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana V 1 Comment
9 "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss" Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
10 "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love, you make" The End - The Beatles

Greatest line in music history. Last song, last take, last time they were ever in the recording studio together. They walked out the door, knowing they were the best band that ever was, and the best that ever would be.

The Newcomers

? "Compton, U.S.A. made me an angel on angel dust." - m.A.A.d. City - Kendrick Lamar

This line perfectly summarizes m.A.A.d city's narrative about the corrupting effect growing up in Compton had on Kendrick. Although Kendrick is a "good kid" (an angel, so to speak), life in "m.A.A.d city" has pressured him to engage in morally dubious activities. Furthermore, these closing lyrics reveal the meaning of the acronym m.A.A.d (me an angel on angel dust).

The Contenders

11 "I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky. But why, why, why can't it be. Why can't it be mine?" Black - Pearl Jam

Pearl Jam everybody! One of the greatest Alternative bands of all time! This is such a deep song and this is by far its best line! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

12 "These songs of hobbits, dwarves, and men, and elves, come close your eyes, you can see them, too" The Bard's Song - Blind Guardian
13 "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now" My Back Pages - Bob Dylan
14 "All the lonely people, where do they all belong?" Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles
15 "A time for love, a time for hate, a time for peace, I swear its not too late" - Turn! Turn! Turn! - The Byrds
16 "In my life, I love you more" In My Life - The Beatles
17 "Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down" Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel
18 "With a friend at hand, you will see the light, if your friends are there, then everything's all right" Friends - Elton John
19 "And the signs said the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls, tenement halls, and whispered in the sounds of silence" Sounds of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel
20 Where do you go when you come to the end of your dream?" Netherlands - Dan Fogelberg
