meaningful lyrics quotes?

i'm making a collage of lots of lyrics from different songs that i think are very meaningful or beautiful or just very true. i know this is a really general question but can anyone just say a couple lines from some songs that they think are really well put and poetic?

    "Abraham Lincoln once turned to somebody and said,

    "do you ever find yourself talking to the dead?'

    Bruce Cockburn from Postcards from Cambodia

    Sadness and regret:

    Danny My Friend,

    I think You knew me better,

    Than i ever knew you,

    cause you read every chapter ,

    and I just glossed right over them ,

    and pretended I knew,......

    Later in the song

    i wish i could have been for you a more consistent friend,

    the chapters that i skipped im gonna have to read again...

    and I cant let it be cause part of me died with you,

    and there's lots of pages missing from my book,

    cause you had more to give,

    than what I took.

    Kevin Gilbert from Song for a Dead Friend

    anger and betrayal:

    How long will this take baba?

    How long have we been sleeping?

    Do you see me hanging on to every word you say?

    How soon will i be holy?

    How much will this cost Guru?

    How much longer until you completely absolve me?

    Allanis Morrisette from baba


    ... you say you got your reasons,

    I hear it all the time ,

    You call it dark and treason and a crime,

    to question why?

    I dont want to be a refugee

    i just want a single guarantee.

    i dont want to be a refugee,

    i just want the right to disagree

    Camel from Refugee (album : Stationary Traveller (about East Germany)


    She's going to change the world (x3)

    But she cant change ME

    Chris Cornell from Cant Change Me

    Funny :

    Peel me a grape

    crush me some ice

    Skin me a peach save th fuzz for my pillow

    talk to me nice

    you got to wine me and dine me

    dont try to fool me , bejewel me

    either amuse me , or lose ,

    im getting hungry,

    Peel me a Graaaape!

    Diana Krall from Peel me a grape

    Don't be afraid

    I've taken my beating

    I've shared what I made

    I'm strong on the surface

    Not all the way through

    I've never been perfect

    But neither have you

    "Leave Out All The Rest" By Linkin Park

    Such a sad and beautiful song!

    Its all because of you

    I wish you never told me

    I wake up screaming now

    So real these voices in my head

    So real these voices in my head

    I wake up screaming now

    I wish you never told me

    I wish I never knew

    "Scared" By Three Days Grace

    Get up, get out, get away from these liars

    'Cause they don't get your soul or your fire

    Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine

    And we'll walk from this dark room for the last time

    "Open Your Eyes" By Snow Patrol

    This song is so sweet! I encourage you to listen to it now!!!

    When I see your smile

    Tears roll down my face

    I can't replace

    And now that I'm strong I have figured out

    How this world turns cold and it breaks through my soul

    And I know I'll find deep inside me

    I can be the one

    "Your Guardian Angel" By The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

    Amazing song! The beat, the lyrics, everything!

    I know some things that you don't

    I've done things that you won't

    There's nothing like a trail of blood

    To find your way back home

    I was waiting for my hearse

    What came next was so much worse

    It took a funeral to make me feel alive

    "Life is Beautiful" By Sixx AM

    I just know there's no escape now

    Once it sets its eyes on you

    But I won't run, have to stare it in the eye

    Stand my ground, I won't give in

    No more denying, I've got to face it

    Won't close my eyes and hide the truth inside

    If I don't make it

    Someone else will stand my ground

    "Stand My Ground" By Within Temptation

    Heaven's gates won't open up for me

    On these hands and knees I'm crawlin

    Oh, I reach for you

    Well I'm terrified of these four walls

    These iron bars can't hold my soul in

    All I need is you

    Come please I'm callin

    And oh I scream for you

    Hurry I'm fallin, I'm fallin

    "Savin Me" By Nickelback

    One of my all time fav songs...there's something about it that lets me listen to it for hours without getting tired of it.

    Thats all I got for now...hope I helped :D

    "I got a flask inside my pocket, we can share it on the train

    And if you promise to stay conscious I will try and do the same

    We might die from medication, but we sure killed all the pain

    But what was normal in the evening by the morning seems insane"
