Post your favorite song lyrics here and where they came from, Gaslight included. I'm not talking entire songs, I'm talking one liners, like:

"You said, 'I love you more than the stars in the sky, but your name just escapes me tonight'" - "1930" by The Gaslight Anthem

"I fell asleep most nights with your pictures right behind my eyes...your eyes" - "The Blues, Mary" by Brian Fallon

"I'm not leaving this place unless I'm leaving with you, 'cause you're the only person with a half-decent heart here, and I know you will put it to use 'til it's gone" - "The Big Sleep" by Streetlight Manifesto

"Annie says, 'The saddest day I came across was when I learned that life goes on without me'" - "A Better Place, a Better Time" by Streetlight Manifesto

"And I got nothin' for you darlin' but a story to tell about the rain on the pavement and the sound as it fell" - "Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis?" by The Gaslight Anthem

"I lean on you sometimes just to see you're still there. Your feet can't take the weight of one, much less two; we hit concrete" - "Kiss the Bottle" by Jawbreaker

"And if the sky falls tonight, we'll all run outside and catch stars in the streetlight" - "Stars In the Streetlight" by Chamberlain

"Go on west or come to me, just stay the same; don't ever change" - "Wait At Milano" by Tim Barry

Also, pretty much all of Thunder Road and Bobby Jean. I'll stop there and add more later, as I could go on and on.

Awesome song! I wanna get a tattoo saying "STAY FREE" across my knuckles at some point.

I'm struggling to think of many song lyrics at the moment, but one of my favourites is -

"We learnt more from a three minute record
Than we ever learnt in school" - from No Surrender by Bruce Springsteen

"This mechanical impulse knows not loyalty or mercy" Against Me! - "Animal"

"We sing with our heroes, 33 rounds per minute, we're never going home 'till the sun says we're finished, I'll love you forever if I ever love at all" C'mon really? Like you guys don't know

"And there aint no turning back when a train is off its track and there's nothing we can do but watch it crash!" Streetlight Manifesto - "Watch it Crash"

I can go on all day, so I'll stop right there before I get to carried away

Fuck the Goo Goo Dolls, they can suck my balls

They look like the dogs that hang out at the mall

Eminem can suck it, so can Dr. Dre

They can suck each other just because they're gay

They can suck a dick, they can lick a sack

Everybody shout, "Heavy metal's back!"


Deep.

Question, what does the TGA quote mean? Never really made sense to me.

Also I was gonna put the California Burritos one too but I figured someone else would do it lol

I've read some places that it's referring to listening to Bob Dylan with a friend, but I'm not entirely sure since I always took it into a personal meaning for myself and never really paid attention to what it meant.

And I had a feeling that someone would say something about that California Burritos lyric XD

"Ha, you think it's funny, turning rebellion into money."

-(White Man) In Hammersith Palais by The Clash. It's punk rock in a nutshell basically.

"The sun ain't yellow, it's chicken!"
-Tombstone Blues - Bob Dylan

Those are just off the top of my head.

I think someone once mentioned on here that 84 is something to do with a timber delivery company, and it refers to Brians pre-TGA job as a roofer. I'm not familiar with this though so maye one of our American users can enlighten you a bit more!

Stepped on and beaten down

"When I finally get around to calling home, I'll have long forgotten the area code" - "Heart BPM" by Fake Problems

"You made me promise that I would let you know if I found myself
struggling to cope. How can I lay that on you when you're struggling
yourself? It's times like this that nothing seems to change. You are
her eyes and legs now so she can keep her strength. I used to hold on
to belief that things would work out in the end...There's no shame in hoping for a miracle." - "Rearranging the Dust" by Apologies, I Have None

I tried to get myself a job
Because that's the way that things are
Wanna have nice things and go far
Well I'm sorry honey, I ain't got much money
But I can sure play this here old guitar
As the years went on, I made a few mistakes
It was a trouble bound for this young man
The police knockin' at my door,
"Well he don't live here no more, and he's playin' in a rock 'n' roll band."

Steal a little and they throw you in jail, steal a lot and they make you king

Bob Dylan - Sweetheart like you


Your snakeskin suit and your alligator boot
You won't need a launderette, you can send them to the vet!

Koka Kola - The Clash

But I believe in this-and it's been tested by research
he who fucks nuns will later join the church


Death or Glory - The Clash
