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 🎼💜

"Rocks in the Ocean" - Al Stewart

Beautiful song about taking for granted a love you are given, then losing it and regretting it.


He still listens out for her foot on the stair
As he looks for her down through the years
And the friends that he had have all left one by one
For their words weren't reaching his ears
He chooses instead now to wander alone
To a song that only he hears 

Honored Social Butterfly

Light of the world, shine on me

Love is the answer

Shine on us all, set us free

Love is the answer

Love is the answer, England Dan&John

Ford Coley

This beautiful, pure, spiritual song about love 

from 1979 still holds true today 🎼💜

Honored Social Butterfly

You want a piece of my heart

You better start from the start

You wanna be in the show

Come on baby let’s go

Working for the weekend, Loverboy

This light hearted song about new

romance with its catchy lyrics and 

driving beat is just so fun 🎼💜

Honored Social Butterfly

What you don’t have, you don’t need it now

What you don’t know, you can feel it somehow 

What you don’t have, you don’t need it now

Don’t need it now 

Was a beautiful day

Beautiful Day -


Bono said it was about “a man who has lost everything, but finds joy in what he still has.” 

Other interpretations, including my own: Live in the present, don’t let it get away, appreciate what you have, and not be concerned about material things. 


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

Here am I floating ‘round my tin can

Far above the moon

Planet Earth is blue

And there’s nothing I can do

Space Oddity, Bowie

The lyrics and changes in tempo make

this song incredible. One of his best 🎼💜

Social Butterfly

Good night
Good night, everybody
Everybody, everywhere
Good night

The color of the sky I’m told

My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue, yeah

Oh, don’t forsake me ‘cause I love you

Don’t forsake me ‘cause I love you, yeah

Oh What a Beautiful Morning

Oh What a Beautiful Day

And I’ve Got A Beautiful Feeling 

Everything’s Going My Way

Ain’t that what you said?


Liar, liar


Liar, liar

Liar, Three Dog Night

The lying is bad enough but he’s there to

continually remind her about it 🎼💜

"Ballad of a Thin Man"   Dylan


"Because something is happening here/But you don't know what it is/Do you, Mister Jones".

Honored Social Butterfly

And we’ll bask in the shadow of yesterday’s triumph 

Sail on the steel breeze

Come on, you boy-child

You winner and loser

Come on, you miner for truth and delusion, and shine


Shine On You Crazy Diamond  (end parts 2 & 3) - Pink Floyd 


We won’t forget you, shine on, Syd.

Well you wore out your welcome with random precision 

Rode on the steel breeze 

Come on, you raver, you seer of visions

Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine


Shine On You Crazy Diamond  (end of part 1) - Pink Floyd 

“Random precision” is an interesting choice of words, here.

Someday when we’re dreaming

Deep in love, not a lot to say

Then we will remember 

Things we said today


Things We Said Today - The Beatles

It’s a fascinating song, the way it’s written. McCartney called the song “future nostalgia” that is “projecting something in the future that exists now”. It sounds dark as it alternates between minor and major chords, though the lyrics are romantic. Did he already suspect that his romance with girlfriend Jane Asher was already doomed?



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

"In the Year 2525" - Zager & Evans


"Now it's been ten thousand years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what, he never knew, now man's reign is through
But through eternal night, the twinkling of starlight
So very far away, maybe it's only yesterday" 


About the future, that isn't as much science fiction as we thought. (also in First Lines)

Honored Social Butterfly

You with the moves like Jagger

I got the moves like Jagger

I got the mooooooves like Jagger

Moves like Jagger, Maroon 5

The ultimate compliment is to have

a song named after you 🎼💜

Social Butterfly

"Truly Madly Deeply" - Savage Garden


"I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish, I'll be your fantasy.
I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need.
I'll love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do


I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me."


Beautiful love song. 



Social Butterfly

"To The Moon and Back" - Savage Garden

"She's saying, love is like a barren place
And reaching out for human faith is
Is like a journey I just don't have a map for
So baby gonna take a dive and push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that she's hanging all her hopes on the stars"


About a women that has hard life, past heartaches, can't trust, looks for love and someone that listens and wants to rescue her. 

Honored Social Butterfly

Everyday is sunshine, girl you’re on my mind

One of a kind, one of a kind love affair is

Makes me want to, want to be with you 

(One of a kind) baby, baby, baby

One of a kind (Love Affair)   Spinners

Celebrating the most special and perfect

love that isn’t going to make it to forever.

My most fav Spinners song 🎼💜

Social Butterfly

Mother, did it need to be so high?


Mother-Pink Floyd

Regular Social Butterfly

"The rivers are full of crocodile nasties
And he who made kittens put snakes in their grasp
He's a lover of life but a player of pawns
Yes, the King on His sunset lies waiting for dawn
To light up His Jungle as play is resumed
The monkeys seem willing to strike up the tune

Well, let's bungle in the jungle
Well, that's all right by me, yes
I'm a tiger when I want love
And I'm a snake when we disagree"


Bungle In The Jungle - Jethro Tull


...always thought Machiavelli's The Prince (Like Galileo's Dialogue) reads like a satire written with just enough care to save the author's skin from the full wrath of 'the powers that be'.

Labelling it a 'literary classic' is a sad statement about the culture. These days it could be titled 'Creating a Sartrean Hell For Dummies'.

Honored Social Butterfly

All my sorrow

Sad tomorrow

Take me back to my own home

Reflections of my life, Marmalade

This amazing song from 1969 offers

a message about the world we live

in today. Also the conflict between

living unhappily and death, not the

option he wants 🎼💜

Honored Social Butterfly

A time to gain, a time to lose

A time to rend, a time to sew

A time for love, a time for hate

A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late


Turn! Turn! Turn!  -  The Byrds  (Pete Seeger)

Upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall
It's just a little rain


Rain Song-Led Zeppelin 

Honored Social Butterfly

Making friends for the world to see

Let the people know you got what you need

With a friend at hand you will see the light

If your friends are there, then everything’s 

all right

Friends, Sir Elton John

This beautiful and uplifting song from 1971

is one of his best recordings 🎼🎼💜

True friends like diamonds are precious

but rare…..

Social Butterfly

Having been some days in preparation
A splendid time is guaranteed for all
And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill!


Beatles-Being for the Benefit for Mr. Kite!

Honored Social Butterfly

He said Brandy you’re a fine girl (You’re 

a fine girl)

What a good wife you would be (Such a

fine girl)

But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea

Brandy (You’re a fine girl)  Looking Glass

Falling in love with a sailor is tough 💜🎼

Social Butterfly

Nothing really matters, anyone can see
Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters to me
Any way the wind blows


Queen-Bohemian Rhapsody 

Honored Social Butterfly

And you know that it’s right

We have got to get it together

We have got to get it together now

Something in the air, Thunderclap Newman

Although this song from 1969 is about an

impending revolution, it’s theme about

getting it together rings true about the

times we live in
