Best Verses In Music HistoryDonut The greatest verses of any genre of any genre to ever grace the wonderfulness of music:
The Top Ten
That verse has been permanently etched on my memory since I first heard the song. What a brilliant work. - PetSounds
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence." - Donut
And as we wind on down the road!
Our shadow's taller than our souls!
There walks a lady we all know!
Who shines white light and wants to show!
How everything still turns to gold!
And if you listen very hard!
The truth will come to you at last!
When all is one and one is all,
To be a rock, and not to roll!
And she's buying a stairway,
To heaven... - MontyPython
Woe woe woe woe woe oh
If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May Queen
Yes there are two paths you can go by
but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on
And it makes me wonder…ohhh ooh woe
Your head is humming and it won't go - in case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady can you hear the wind blow and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind - Donut
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say - Donut
I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn't play
And in the streets the children screamed
The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken
And the three men I admire most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died
And they were singin - Donut
Reading the lyrics, compels me to listen to the song! - keycha1n
I loved every verse of this song. - zxm
Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They're all drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made
Exchanging all precious gifts
But you'd better take your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
When you ain't got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal. - Donut
Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed
Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear
But not a word I heard could I relate, the story was quite clear
Oh, oh. - Donut
"I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on." - Juan-Luis
Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.
Suddenly I'm not half the man I used to be.
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly. - Donut
It's the perfect pop song. - PetSounds
If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you - Billyv
There's no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams
And you will lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind? - Donut
I am a Eminem fan and this verse is killer - YanRocky
Sorry, can't remember the lyrics off-hand but I do know they are inspirational. This doesn't mean I am an Eminem fan, OK? - Britgirl
Little girl, why don't you stop your crying? I'm gonna make you feel alright!
My name is Ivor, I'm an engine
I know him well,
I know why you feel blue!
Just 'cause he's late,
don't mean he'll never get through!
He told me loves you.
He ain't no liar, I ain't either!
So let's have a smile for an old engine driver.
So let's have a smile for an old engine driver!
Please take a sweet. (Take a sweet! )
Come take a walk with me! (Walk with me! )
We'll sort it out! (Sort it out! )
Back at my place, maybe! (Back at my place, maybe! )
It'll come alright,
you ain't no fool, I ain't either!
So why not be nice to an old engine driver?
Better be nice to an old engine driver.
Better be nice to an old engine driver... - MontyPython
Mirrors on the ceiling
The pink champagne on ice
And she said: "We are all just prisoners here of our own device" (Can you understand?! )
And in the master's chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can't kill the beast
Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
"Relax" said the night man
"We are programmed to receive
You can check-out any time you like
But you can never leave! " - peyman_eun
It gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. - Metal_Treasure
This is the KILLER VERSE!
The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'. - Donut
Who was born in a house full of pain
Who was trained not to spit in the fan
Who was told what to do by the man
Who was broken by trained personnel
Who was fitted with collar and chain
Who was given a pat on the back
Who was breaking away from the pack
Who was only a stranger at home
(Stranger at home)
Who was ground down in the end
Who was found dead on the phone
Who was dragged down by the stone - FredTheGooner
I watch the ripples change their size but never leave the stream of warm impermanence. And so the days float through my eyes, but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on, as they try to change their worlds, are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through. - PetSounds
I feel so dumb now. I can't believe I forgot Bowie! Thanks for adding that part, though. - Donut
"Don't talk to strangers
Cause they're only there to do you harm
Don't write in starlight
'Cause the words may come out real
Don't hide in doorways
You may find the key that opens up your soul
Don't go to Heaven cause it's really only Hell
Don't smell the flowers
They're an evil drug to make you lose your mind
Don't dream of women
'Cause they'll only bring you down" - Metal_Treasure
"And in the end,
The love you take,
Is equal to the love you make"
Greatest lines in music history, from the greatest band of all time.
Cause there's no comfort in the waiting room
Just nervous paces bracing for bad news
And then the nurse comes round
And everyone lifts their head
But I'm thinking of what Sarah said
That "love is watching someone die! "
So who's gonna watch you die?! - peyman_eun
A thousand pictures can be drawn from one word
Only who is the artist
We gotta agree
A thousand miles can lead so many ways
Just to know who is driving
What a help it would be
So if you want this world of yours to turn about you
And you can see exactly what to do
Please tell me
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band - Billyv
Isn't life strange
A turn of a page
A book without light
Unless with love we write
To throw it away
To lose just a day
To the quicksands of time
You know it makes me want to cry, cry, cry -- - Billyv
"In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind
These songs of hobbits, dwarves and men
Come close your eyes
You can see them too". - Metal_Treasure
If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts would tell
Just like an old time movie
'bout a ghost from a wishing well
When you reach the part where the heartaches come
The hero won't be me
Heroes often fail
But if you read between the lines
you'll know that I'm just trying to understand
The feelings that you left
- tough decision as to which of the three verses of this song is the songs' best, but this is what they build to... - Billyv
No one but me can save myself now, it's too late
Now I can't think, think why I should even try
Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death Greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye
Compacts the emotion of an entire song in a few lines. Not to mention this overall is one of the greatest songs of all time. - Songsta41
It's actually only going, "o", but still, it summarizes the song up greatly and really relaxes you. - MontyPython
You better make your face up in your favorite disguise!
With your buttoned up lips and roller blind eyes!
With your empty smile and your hungry heart!
Feel the fire rising from your guilty past!
With your nerves in tatters as the cockshell shatters!
AND THE HAMMERS, BATTER, DOWN YOUR DOOR!
YOU BETTER RUN! - MontyPython
There's Winston Churchill dressed in drag,
he used to be a British flag, plastic bag, what a drag.
The frog was a prince, the prince was a brick, the brick was an egg,
the egg was a bird.
(Fly away you sweet little thing, they're hard on your tail)
Hadn't you heard?
(They're going to change you into a human being! )
Yes, we're happy as fish and gorgeous as geese,
and wonderfully clean in the morning - FredTheGooner
The cattle quietly grazing at the grass down by the river
where the swelling mountain water moves onward to the sea:
the builder of the castles renews the age-old purpose
and contemplates the milking girl whose offer is his need.
The young men of the household have all gone into service
and are not to be expected for a year.
The innocent young master - thoughts moving ever faster -
has formed the plan to change the man he seems.
And the poet sheaths his pen while the soldier lifts his sword.
And the oldest of the family is moving with authority.
Coming from across the sea, he challenges the son who puts him to the run. - FredTheGooner
I pulled into Nazareth, was feeling 'bout half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
Hey, mister, can you tell me, where a man might find a bed?
He just grinned and shook my hand, "No" was all he said. - zxm
There's a feeling I get when I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking - zxm
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 - zxm
And as her young man dies
On a cold and gray Chicago morning
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto - zxm
There's nothing in the street
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Is now the parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight - zxm
In a place you always dream of, where your soul is always free
Silver stages, golden curtains, filled my head plain as could be
As a rainbow grew around the sun, all my stars above, who died
Came somewhere beyond the scene you see
These lovely people played for me - zxm
