and now for something completely different

As I was trying to fall asleep the other night, I was doing something I frequently do when insomnia rears it's ugly head, I was reciting song lyrics. For some reason, my mind went to the Eagles song "There's A Hole in the World". (that looks funny written out. ha!).

Anyhow, that song, though repetitive, contains one of my favorite lines ever written, probably:
"they say that anger is just love disappointed".
And suddenly, instead of reviewing lyrics, I was thinking about anger and love, and I decided that whomever "they" are, they are right!
Then, I started considering other song lyrics, and what I thought were some of the better, more meaningful ones. My mind ran the gamut, from an oldie called "You Don't Own Me", to Country, because MM loves the lyric "Bubba hollered out, 'reckless, hell! I hit just where I was aiming!'". So many things to choose from,
and then I fell asleep.
So, now I want to know from you (few) readers, what is your favorite, meaningful song lyric?

The line in my favorite song of all time, "you help me sing my song, you right me when I'm wrong" sums up my marriage very well ("Maybe, I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney")

I dearly love a good lyrical turn of phrase.

There are far too many to choose from... hmmm... I could seriously name too many, and my mind is drawing a complete blank. Tired. :)

I am thinking of Sir Paul's Feet in the Clouds from Memory Almost Full ... "Love is fab, it's like a stab in the heart My hidden treasure, made to measure, for my pleasure, I had it my way"
