Oh, there's just so many. Earlier today I heard a John Prine song where he used the line "It takes two to make three." Isn't that wonderful?
From "Everybody's Talkin'" "I'm going where the weather suits my clothes." Doesn't that give imagery of an ill-prepared person out of place?
And not everything has to be amazing. I rather like "A mirror that lies, a mirror that lies, that couldn't be me in that gorilla disguise" from Jimmy Buffett's "This Hotel Room."
There's so many good ones from traditional country gospel too. From "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven But Nobody Wants to Die" and speaking of Jesus, "At the end, He knew His Father's friends. He was brave enough going to his death, but He didn't want to die." And from Oh Death, "Oh Death, where is thy sting? Grave where is thy suffering? You thought you had a hold on me, but you were wrong I've been set free!" [That last is public domain - don't worry about the copyright of having too many lyrics] These get right to the heart of the matter, don't they? Agree with the concept or don't, they are powerful lyrics.
My whole head is filled with nothing but old lyrics and movie scenes, so I'll be back to this time and again probably.
