Favorite Line from Begin to Hope!

Recommended Posts

Whats your favorite line of lyrics off of Begin to Hope? THe lyrics are so great on this album, so much diversity, from That Time, to On the Radio...

mine is from Bartender:

love will be the death of me

love is so fickle

it starts with a flood

and it ends with a tr-tr-tr-tr-tr-trickle

The whole album is good lines... but if I had to pick one, at the moment it would be...

Summer in the city, I'm so lonely lonely lonely

I've been hallucinating you, babe, at the backs of other women

And I tap on their shoulder and they turn around smiling

But there's no recognition in their eyes

Hate to nit pick....but bartender is not on Begin to Hope....not challenging your choice of a great lyrics, but taht line would have to be your favorite from a song NOT recorded on any of Regina's albums.

1 Fidelity

2 Better

3 Samson

4 On the Radio

5 Field Below

6 Hotel Song

7 Après Moi

8 20 Years of Snow

9 That Time

10 Edit

11 Lady

12 Summer in the City

13 (CD 2) Another Town

14 (CD 2) Uh-Merica

15 (CD 2) Baobabs

16 (CD 2) Düsseldorf

17 (CD 2) Music Box

.

Choosing from the above list, my fav would have to be either Baobabs..the begining and ending lines of the middle section" I wouldn't raise my child inside this city anyway, they grow up to savvy and they grow up to fast...........and they all grow up and become people's people with people skills"

or from the non bonus disc...Field Below

."and darkness spreads over the snow

like ancient bruises"

.

I used to think this line was "like ancient ruins" which i still like in my head...so maybe i will write a song using that line....since i would not be technically ripping off Regina that way. (i try to find ways of justifying not stealing lyrics from her and The Mountain Goats all the time.)

So we'll call Bartender a B-Side and everyone will be happy...

I'll be the odd one out and go with my slighty tipsy out of cookie box way of being (yeah that's what I call it -shush) and say my fav' line is:

~ insert drumroll here~

"A little bag of cocaine, a little bag of cocaine"

I just love the way she sings that line Smiler

Also the lines from Baoboabs:

"You have tamed me, now you must take me

How am I supposed to be, I don't have my thorns now"

Awesomeness.

Me too! Smiler

This is crazy. I could pick a favorite line from every song, let alone the whole album...lol. But I suppose, if I have to...

"You are my sweetest downfall/I loved you first/I loved you first/Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth/I have to go, I have to go"

Just beautiful. Smiler
