Favorite line from HTDAAB

What are your favorite lines from the songs off of HTDAAB

"Hanging out to dry, with my old clothes, finger still red from a prick of an old rose, well the HEART THAT HURTS IS A HEART that BEATS can hear the drummer slowing"

" A feeling so much stronger than a thought, your eyes are white, and though your soul it CANT BE BOUGHT YOUR MIND CAN WONDER"

"freedom has a scent like the top of a newborn baby's head"

" GOd I need your help tonight"

" I need to let you know, you dont have to go it alone"

"CAN YOU HEAR ME WHEN I SING, YOUR THE REASON I SING, YOUR THE REASON WHY THE OPERA IS IN ME"

"Lay down your guns, all you daughters of zion, all you abrahams sons"

"Where is the love, love and peace"

" THe more you see the less you know"

" Ive seen you walk unafraid"

" Can you see the beauty inside of me, what happened to the beauty I had inside of me"

" You can make me perfect again"

" No I could never take a chance, of losing love to find romance"

" You can run from, love and if its really love it will find you and catch you by the heal"

" Take this soul and make it sing" YAHWEH" " YAWEH"

" Take this mouth so quick to critisize, take this mouth give it a kiss"

" Take this heart, take this heart, take this heart and make it break"

Sorry for having so many, but I like them, and I actually quote them all the time to people, and they ask me what the heck am I talking about.

"Time won't leave me as I am,
but time won't take the boy out of this man."

"I'm alive, I'm being born.
Just arrived, I'm at the door.
Of the place I started out from, and I want back inside."

"let me take some of the punches for you tonight"

With a mouth full of teeth you ate all your friends
And you broke every heart, thinking every heart mends

" Can you see the beauty inside of me, what happened to the beauty I had inside of me"

"You can make me perfect again"

"The more you see the less you, the less you find out as you grow."

"And you feel like no one before...I kneel cause I want you some more..."

"How can I hurt when I'm holding you."

"I'm not broke, but you can see the cracks..."

"The more you know the less you feel
Some pray for others steal
Blessings are not just for the ones who kneel… luckily"

"take this soul stranded in some skin and bones take this soul and make it sing"

"take this mouth so quick to critisize take this mouth give it a kiss"

"tell me now why the dark before the dawn"

"take this heart and make it pray"

Among others...as I have said before this album is very under rated lyrically.

all of those listed have been great ones so far..

and I'd like to add

"I miss you when you're not around, I'm getting ready to leave the ground"

and

"beneath the noise
below the din
I hear your voice
it's whispering
in science and in medicine
I was a stranger
you took me in"

I'm not broke but you can see the cracks
You can make me perfect again

I'm alive, i'm being born
I just arrived, I'm at the door,
of the place I started out from and I want back inside

As you enter this life, I pray you depart
with a wrinkled face and a brand new heart

here's my heart, I'll let you break it

I want the lot of what you got and I want nothin that your not

Of science and the human heart, there's no limits
There's no failure here sweetheart, just when you quit

yes, this is a great line. and is also preceeded by another one "the only pain is to feeling nothing at all"

i would highlight also the closing lines:
"what no man can own, no man can take
take this heart and make it break"

where you live should not decide/whether you live or whether you die


I've got the nightly news to get to know the enemy


Can you hear me when I sing?/ You're the reason I sing/You're the reason why the opera is in me/ Hey, got to let you know/ a house just don't make a home/don't leave me here alone.

"Baby slow down
The end is not as fun as the start
Please stay a child somewhere in your heart"

This line made me cry like a baby one day after I dropped of my 16 year old daughter at school. It made me think about how fast children grow up, and how parents want them to stay young.
