did you grow up lonesome and one of a kind
were your records all you had to pass the time.


and


look at the damage, the fortunes came for the richer men,
while we're left with gallows, waiting for us liars to come down and hang.

This is an easy question for a blue collar boy like myself.

'your tattooed knuckles, oh how they grind down. Try to be a man; tough just like your father."

i really like that line too, but i think it's more about the way it's sung and the music right then, the whole thing together, that's probly my favorite part of my favorite song on AS.

Gotta be:
If you're anywhere in Manhattan
In the next eight days or so
Let me know
Speak soon, stay lucky.

or

And we're hustling under but we live in the city
And we keep it down when we take a beating
Yeah, we keep it down with the radio on
And if you find a good man, don't take him home

I like the flow of the words but I don't quite know what he's trying to say with it.

I'm going for:

"The clothes I wore just don't fit my soul anymore"

Strikes me everytime, hits close to home.

Basically the whole last song.

I'm a cannonball to a house on fire and you're slow like Motown soul

Not another soul could love you
Like my rotten bones do


So give me the fevers that just won't break
And give me the children you don't want to raise


And whoa-oa-oa-oa nobody knows I've been crazy for so long without you (well, pretty much the whole song)


Did you grow up a good girl,
Your daddy's pride?
Did you make all the right moves,
Take all the right drugs right on time?


So don't sing me your songs about the good times
Those days are gone and you should just let them go


I could probably go on. Laughing

I think it would have to be either

"Was I good to you, the wife of my youth
Not another soul could love you
Like my rotten bones do"
From The Spirit of Jazz

or

"But, He said, he just doesn't miss her
and he, he says, it's somewhere in his framework"
From Boxer

american slang -
and you can dance with the queen if you need, and she will always keep yours cards close to her heart. oh, so close to her heart, before they tear you apart.

stay lucky -
you've been pacing around and waiting for some moment that might never arrive. what you don't have, you don't need it anymore. what you don't have, you don't need it anymore.


the diamond church street choir -
i might have moved away from home, and slept out there on my own a milions miles away in a storm, but the beat never leaves and the tempo's a relief. to my aching bones rambling all over. but if i'm gone for too long i can always hum along. so don't you never forget what i told you.

the queen of lower chelsea -
american girls, they want the whole world, they want every last little light in new york city.

where they say these days nothing comes cheap, and everything has a price, everyone has a price. not nothing is free, not even me.

where thou die, i shall die, and there thou shalt burry me.

orphans -
so i left you to find my own hatful of rain

but the clothes i wore just don't fit my soul anymore.

old haunts -
so don't sing me your songs about the good times. those days are gone and you should just let them go.

Definitely.

That song reminds me a lot of a relationship in my life.

american slang - "you told me fortunes in american slang"

boxer - "you found the bandages inside the pen and the stitches on the radio"

bring it on - "if its better than my love, baby bring it on"

orphans - "when we were young, we were diamond sinatras"

queen of.. - "did you grow lonesome, one of a kind, we're your records all you had to pass the time?"

"we hustled in London but we live in the city, and we keep it down while we take a beating, we keep it down with the radio on"

spirit of jazz - "not another soul could love you like my rotten bones do"

"i'm a cannonball to a house on fire, and you're slow like motown soul"

stay lucky - "it feels like all you'd have to do is step outside, stop pacing around and waiting for some moment that might never arrive"

"you're never gonna find it when your knees got so weak"

"It took so long to get me back on my feet, it takes so long to find the words and the beat"

"mama never told me there'd be days like these till it was much to late recover"

"if you're anywhere in manhattan in the next eight days or so, let me know, speak soon, stay lucky"

"what you don't have you don't need it anymore"

"You took it all gracefully on the chin
Knowing that the beatings had to someday end
You found the bandages inside the pen
And the stitches on the radio"
-Boxer

and

"The clothes I wore just don't fit my soul anymore"
and
"Whatever they left I kept it for my own heart"
-Orphans

"Old haunts are for forgotten ghosts"
-Old Haunts


At least at the moment those are my favorites.

I'd have to say in Stay Lucky

'but you're never gonna find it when your knees they got so weak'

Simple but effective lyrics and message which I probably feel the most connection to on American Slang.

Was I good to you, the wife of my youth?
Not another soul could love you like my rotten bones do.

^Probably my favourite lyric.

She Loves You is filled with lyrics that hit home for me too, hard to pick out certain ones that I like best.
