LAST LINES

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 🎼💜

Dirty deeds, dirty deeds (Done dirt cheap)

Yeah  

Dirty deeds done dirt cheap, AC/DC

Social Butterfly

"If everything should turn around
And it's me who feels so down and out
You could be the kind of company
To share a load and know how bad it feels
Everybody needs to have a friend"

 

"Everybody Needs a Friend" - Wishbone Ash

 

Always loved these lyrics and the beautiful guitar(s). The first part of the song tells about how he could be a friend when someone is in need. The last lines tell that he hopes they will be a friend if he is in need. Friendship has always been important to me, since growing up moving every couple of years. Make friends then lose them. So I treasure all.

”Sad faces painted over with those magazine 

smiles, heading out to somewhere won’t be 

back for awhile”

Dreamboat Annie, Heart

The title song from this iconic album has 

awesome lyrics and musicality. Just a

gorgeous song 🎼💜

Who wants to live forever?

Who wants to live forever?

Forever is our today

Who wants to wait forever anyway?

 

Who Wants To Live Forever  -  Queen

 

Written by Brian May for the film Highlander, where the principal character is immortal. Sadly, he faces the loss of his wife who is not. I think it is often forgotten what a brilliant songwriter Brian May is.

”In my life I love you more”

In my life, Fab 4️⃣

It’s not just the words, it’s the way Lennon

sings it. This is a beautiful and pure love

song with John at his finest 🎼💜

Social Butterfly

Time-Pink Floyd 

 

Far away, across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells

"Disappear" - Dream Theater 

 

"You were strong, I was trying
I gave you my hand
I said it's okay
Letting go time to leave here
And I'll carry on
The best that I can
Without you here beside me
Let him come take you home"

 

 

Very moving sad song about loss of a loved one and the struggle to go on without them. Loss affects us, past and future.

Putting under sad songs that make you cry.

I am the voice of Never-Never-Land

The innocence, the dreams of every man

I am the empty crib of Peter Pan

A silent kite against the blue blue sky

Every chimney, every moonlit sight

I am the story that will read you real

Every memory that you hold dear

 

Storytime - Nightwish

 

So yeah, I kinda like this song! 😎

 

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

Seeing clearer, what I’ve done

I refuse to let things go

i could never once admit I’m wrong

And what do I have to show?

Seeing clearer what’s at stake

And the things I have to change

I just hope I can, it’s not too late

Too get a chance to end this pain

 

Last Man Standing - Hammerfall

 

He’s writing about pride, a man who sold his soul to win at all costs. But with age came wisdom, and now he sees how wrong he was, and the need to change his ways. He still has hope. 

Metal has some of the most poignant lyrics in music. 🤘

Never heard of them so had to give a listen.

Really good song with a definite message.

Always a chance for redemption if one 

owns up to their choices

”I’m the burning bush, I’m the burning fire

"I said I'm hooked on a feeling
And I'm high on believing
That you're in love with me
I'm hooked on a feeling"

 

Hooked On A Feeling - Blue Swede

 

Such a joyous song...we could always use more of this.

Honored Social Butterfly

Two songs whose last lines express a similar piece of wisdom:

 

Desperado:  Eagles  (You better let somebody love you before it's too late)

 

Nature Boy: Nat King Cole  (The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return)

Honored Social Butterfly

Sticking with the amazing lyricist, Bernie Taupin …

 

I hope you don’t mind

I hope you don’t mind 

That I put down in words 

How wonderful life is while your in the world 

 

Your Song - Elton John

I'll tell you everything I've learned, and Love is all... he said.

”Don’t keep me waiting here 

Lead me to your door”

The Long and winding Road, Fab 4️⃣

I’ve read this song is an ode to their

break up. I know it is one of their most

beautiful songs that ends on a positive

note 🎼💜

Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

 

"Yeah
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss"

 

In the context of the rest of the song, seems to be a call to do a better job of learning from so as to stop repeating History.

"If we had love before, we can have it back, once more."

 

LOST WITHOUT YOUR LOVE- Bread

 

Honored Social Butterfly

”Love is all you need, Oh yeah,

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah”

All you need is love, Fab 4️⃣

I’ve never been shy about my eternal

love for this song. At the songs end,

they go thru a long chorus of Love is 

all you need with some Cat Calling then

Paul launches into She loves you yeah,

yeah,yeah which is another song I love.

Just so amazingly clever and the perfect

end to a perfect song 🎼💜

Taxman-Beatles 

 

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”

I hate to steal this one from KT but:

 

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

Of course, I have to include Bruce:

”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 🎼💜
