If you are anything like me, you love a great lyric that comes across when you are listening to music. All genres can certainly contain great lyrical passages that often really mean something to you.
I would like to see a bunch of those lyrics posted here. Preferably from the classic rock and classic metal genres. That includes all subdivisions of rock music, like progressive rock or folk rock or country rock or power pop. Also preferably fairly short passages, not paragraphs or sixty word sentences.
Everybody post up to five of your favorite lyrics below…
I love this one that I heard last night:
”I stood arrow straight, unencumbered by the weight of all these hustlers and they’re schemes” - Bob Seger (Like A Rock)
“Lonely is only a place” - Cheap Trick (If You Want My Love)
“You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave” - Eagles (Hotel California)
