My Favorite Lyrics, part 3 -- One Liners

Sometimes you listen to an entire song just for a few precious, poignant words. These lines are usually saved for climatic bridges or the ends of songs. Here are some of my favorite lines that transform otherwise good tunes to great personal anthems.

"The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun." -- "Can You Read My Mind," The Killers

"There's a storm that's raging through my frozen heart tonight." -- "Missing You," John Waite

"I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert, but I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime." -- "Big Country," Big Country

"You can't expect the world to bend to you, you only feed the fire of anger and our disbelief; I can't be everything to everyone and I can't be everything you think I should be." -- "Resignation," Face to Face
