What's your favorite line from a song, and why?

I have several favorite lines from songs, varied as much in song style as reason for my love.  However, for the sake of this question, I'll just list one: 

"I know it seems like sometimes I don't care, but you are the colors that I wear." 
     -- "3 AM," Signs of Life, Poets of the Fall

I love the sincerity in Marko Saaresto's voice as he sings this line.  I love the poetry of the flow of the words.  I love the unexplained but completely understandable metaphor.  But most of all, I love the image it evokes in my head:  a man of few words who can't and doesn't know how to talk about his feelings trying to explain to his lover just how much he loves him (everyone's gay in my head), and the look of sudden, amazed clarity on his lover's face, because...he already knew all along. 

I'm not a romantic, I swear to god, but this song will always make me smile.  Forever and ever, amen. 

By the way, if you don't already know of the awesomeness that is Poets of the Fall, do yourelf a favor and look them up.  They're incredible.

i'm sorry just came across your post and i wanna say i completely agree with you. of all the love ballads and love songs i always think of Poets. they are amazing, both lyrics and music and damn, just after the first concert i went to, i started shipping Marko and Olli *making a facepalm* and i've found out that wasn't only me.

Oh, your reply just brightened my day a little! :) Although I am incredibly jealous that you've seen them in concert dsjkfdjk!! (I'm in the US, so not much hope of a tour, and I'm too poor to afford to go to Europe to see them). But I'm glad to know they have other fans who get as happy about them as I do ^-^ Also, I don't actually ship Marko and Olli, but I definitely can tell that they love each other, so maybe I'll join you once I finally manage to see them? ;)
