We’ve done First Notes and Opening Lines so

it’s time to do Last Lines. What are your most 

memorable last lines of your fav songs? If

you’re so inclined, tell us why also 🎼💜


And in the end, the love you take

Is equal to the love you make”

The End, Fab 4️⃣

The final lines from this song from the incredible Abbey Road Medley have always resonated 

to me in the deepest way. To me they represent 

equality, purity, love and religion all wrapped up in one. This stands as one of the best last lines ever, imo 🎼💜

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me

Your candle burned out long before 

your legend ever did


Candle In The Wind - Elton John


Though written for Marilyn Monroe, and adapted later for Diana, these lyrics could represent many whom we lost in their prime. 

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” - Jimi Hendrix

Taxi-Harry Chapin 


And here, she's acting happy
Inside her handsome home
And me, I'm flying in my taxi
Taking tips and getting stoned

I go flying so high, when I'm stoned

Wind-Up-Jethro Tull


I don't believe you:
You had the whole **bleep** thing all wrong
He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays

”I can hear it in your voice whenever we are

talking like this, I can see what you believe

in when his name is mentioned and I die”

The circle is small, Gordon Lightfoot

Anyone who’s ever been cheated on will

understand that pain

I hate to steal this one from KT but:


I hope some day you will join us, and the world will live as one


Imagine: John Lennon.....nuff said

Of course, I have to include Bruce:


It's A town full of losers and I'm pulling out of here to win.  Thunder Road


All about leaving a small town for the city lights

A classic line from a classic song.... Hotel California:  Eagles

Honored Social Butterfly

”You could be my Silver Springs

blue green colors flashing”

Silver Springs, The Mac, Live

We all have a “Silver Springs”, you know

the one you let get away or walked away

from you. I’ve had a few 😥When they did

this song in Concert, I cried. That’s what

it means to me 🎼💜

" 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain "  (Last line except for the La La La's) 😊


A Horse With No Name - America


Always loved the song. To me it is getting away from it all and soaking in nature. Getting away from people and the world that can hurt you.

The following verse book-ends the song Our House by CSN&Y:


I'll light the fire
You place the flowers in the vase
That you bought today


The tone of the delivery is what sets the opening and closing apart.  The Opening sounds like two people getting home after running errands.  The Closing conjures the image of a couple contentedly dozing off together on the couch for a late morning nap on a peaceful weekend.

There are a thousand more

Where he came from

Where he came from

I'm sure...

---"Wednesday November 6: The Snail Song" by The Pineapple Thief


This beautiful song reminds us that we are responsible for our own actions on this planet, and that all life has value. It tells the story of how the narrator stepped on a snail as he walked about, but regarded it as a small occurrence.
