Most profound lyric/chorus/saying in a song

So, this may have been asked in various other ways. Tried to search, so, as not to duplicate, but, here I am.

Out of all the P songs you have listened to, what lyric/chorus/saying has resonated with you the most?

I have a few favorites. I’m going to think on it a bit. Please share yours. Be respectful, we all love something different 😛

I'm sorry baby, that's the rules
I pay the rent in this raggedy motherfucker
And all you do is suck up food and heat
Say what? Oh yeah?
For someone who can't stand them T.V. dinners

I can say, I hope that you are in these arms of mine

And when the night, falls before that day I will cry

Tears of joy, for after you all one can do is die"

Don't kiss the beast, be superior at least.

If you're going to refer to people as 'scum' or 'garbage vomit', at least have a reason to do so.

When I Lay My Hands on You


Are you ready for the touch that makes you go insane
Breast to lips to cheek to mane
I'll pull your hair, you'll feel no pain
Are you ready for the only forever we'll both obtain
The only joy in this forsaken game
You'll feel ashamed and ordained
When I lay my hands on you

I'm always touched by Relevation:

If ever (if ever), there was ever
Such a thing as time, oh baby
It's useless, so useless to me now
For in your arms is everything, in your arms, everything

==> It's of course also the way he sings it, with the pauses and the stresses. Wow....

"I used to cry for Tracy 'cause he was my only friend
Those kind of cars don't pass you every day
I used to cry for Tracy 'cause I wanted to see him again
But sometimes, sometimes life ain't always the way"


I qouted this at my sisters funeral. It was true then and it's true now...those kind of cars DON'T pass you every day.

Thank you sincerely, obviously you know how it feels. 29...whew...that's rough Pete, I hope you and your family are doing well. My older sister was my best friend, girl had a laugh that made young and old men fall in love. Prince's lyric just seemed right.

"Sacred is the prayer that asks for nothing
While seeking to give thanks for every breath we take
Blessed are we inside this prayer
For in the new world, we will be there

The only love there is, is the love we make"

Every time I hear this line I shudder. It moves me every single time. By far my fav verse from him.

ya, he did many, there was one on emancipation where he talked of all the petals of the flower falling and "would you be afraid of what you'd find inside?".
