Best Lyric Ever

#1

I am idly wondering what others consider the best song lyrics ever.
a few contenders I thought of are:
" 'scuse me while I kiss the sky"
“I’m so hot for her, she’s so cold- like a tombstone”
“got to get you into my life”
“the girls will come and go- they’re just like streetcars”
“imagine there’s no heaven- it’s easy if you try, no hell below us, above us only sky”
“if you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with”
“you coulda heard a pin drop, when he turned and locked the door” (OK, maybe not Kenney Rogers)

how about some more?

what else?

Brighter Than Sunshine
It is on the CD Aqua Lung, Strange and Beautiful.
“Brighter Than Sunshine”

I never understood before
I never knew what love was for
My heart was broke, my head was sore
What a feeling

Tied up in ancient history
I didnt believe in destiny
I look up you’re standing next to me
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
Brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, i don’t care
I’m yours and suddenly you’re mine
Suddenly you’re mine
And it’s brighter than sunshine

I never saw it happening
I’d given up and given in
I just couldn’t take the hurt again
What a feeling

I didn’t have the strength to fight
Suddenly you seemed so right
Me and you
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It’s brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don’t care
I’m yours and suddenly you’re mine
Suddenly you’re mine

It’s brighter than the sun
It’s brighter than the sun
It’s brighter than the sun, sun, shine.

Love will remain a mystery
But give me your hand and you will see
Your heart is keeping time with me

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It’s brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don’t care
I’m yours and suddenly you’re mine
Suddenly you’re mine

“But fortunately I have the key to escape reality
And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
It don’t cost very much, but it lasts a long while
Won’t you please tell the man I didn’t kill anyone
No, I’m just tryin’ to have me some fun”

John Prine - Illegal Smile

You could have a steam train if you’d just lay down your tracks.
You could have an aeroplane flying if you bring your blue sky back.
All you do is call me.
I’ll be anything you need.

You could have a big dipper going up and down and around the bends.
You could have a bumper car bumping, this amusement never ends.

I want to be your sledgehammer.

All my life, you’ve haunted me, I love you so.
