Greatest Individual Song Lyrics (Just 1 Sentence)

fruitslicer2000
So many beautiful lines have originated across all fields of music, ever since the very first opera of the 1500s to the rappers of the past 20 years, there is both literary eloquence and excellence to accompany a memorable tune. Of course, some are better than others. Think about the sound of the words and the resulting musical effect as well as meaning. If you are going to post a new lyric, ensure it isn't too long (not the whole song or an entire verse etc.), and provide the song it's from and the artist, in the form of some of the other entries. If it is not originally in English, provide an official translation, not one from a translator application because that will likely fail to do the words justice.

The Top Ten

1 And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make - The Beatles, The End And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make - The Beatles, The End

Yes, yes, yes! The historical significance of this lyric, being the last all four Beatles would ever record truly gives weight to what they, and all music, is about. A statement that incentivises you to embrace the ultimate emotion that keeps the world going and to give it as much as you receive it. That's all that mattered in the end of The Beatles (they finished this song at peace with one another and accepted this was the end), and that is, fundamentally, all matters in the human condition. To come at the end of the great Abbey Road medley (well, almost the end anyway) makes this incredibly deep, philosophical statement feel earned, and the music that surrounds it is truly extraordinary. No matter what you feel about the band or the medley, it is universally irrefutable, that this is one of the highlights of their entire repertoire. And that's saying something! - Andthisisolaf
