Noteworthy Lines from Songs

Postby Scarlet » Sun Dec 30, 2012 4:01 pm

Not entire lyrics of songs, but lines, phrases, or wording that stand out for you for whatever reason.

From Falling Away with You, by Muse:
"Staying awake to chase a dream"

A simple line, but one that so eloquently and concisely captures that post-dream semi-awake state of mind, when you're trying to place into memory fragments of dreams you know you'll lose if you fall asleep again, or trying to continue a dream from which you have just awoken.

From Hoodoo, by Muse:
And I've had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
to be a better man

The curse of peaceful or contented stagnation.
