    I don’t actually have favorite lyrics or so. Even my favorite song changes once in a while but I guess these two did feel nice.
    “I didn’t think it could be true
    Let alone that would you
    I think I’m in love again”
    - I think I’m in love by Kat Dahlia
    OR
    The “Sad girl, I promise you’ll be okay” part of sad girls by clean bandit

    "If I could save time in a bottle
    The first thing that I'd like to do
    Is to save every day till eternity passes away
    Just to spend them with you"

    'Where there is light
    The shadow appears
    The cause and effect
    When life interferes
    The same rule applies
    To goodness and grief
    For in our great sorrow
    We learn what joy means'

    There is also

    'If you could pull the lever
    To carry on forever
    Would your life even matter, anymore?'
    'For I have seen the ending and there is no asending rise'
    'Oh back when I was younger was told by other youngsters
    That my end was torture beneath the Earth'
    Also!!

    'Oh will wonders ever cease?
    Blessed be the mystery of love.'
    Also!!
    'toss your dirty shoe's in my washing machine heart baby bang it up inside. '

    Boundless by the time I cried
    I built your walls around me

    lord, I no longer believe
    Drowned in living waters
    Cursed by the love that I received

    Now my riverbed has dried
    Shall I find no other?
    Oh, oh woe-oh-woah is me
    I'm running like a plover
    Now I'm prone to misery
    The birthmark on your shoulder reminds me
    How much sorrow can I take?
    Blackbird on my shoulder
    And what difference does it make
    When this love is over?

    “I am the one thing in life I can control
    I am inimitable
    I am an original
    I'm not falling behind or running late
    I'm not standing still
    I am lying in wait”
    - Wait for It sung by Aaron Burr

    I’m not a huge Hamilton fan but “Wait for It” has a special place in my heart.

    My current favorite

    I can buy myself flowers
    Write my name in the sand
    Talk to myself for hours
    Say things you don't understand
    I can take myself dancing
    And I can hold my own hand
    Yeah, I can love me better than you can

    Purea nei e te hau
    Horoia e te ua
    Whitiwhitia e te ra
    Mahea ake nga pōraruraru
    Makere ana nga here.

    E rere wairua, e rere
    Ki nga ao o te rangi
    Whitiwhitia e te ra
    Mahea ake nga poraruraru
    Makere ana nga here,
    Makere ana nga here.

    Cleansed by the wind
    washed by the rain
    and warmed by the sun,
    all troubles are cleared away
    and all restraints got rid of.

    Fly O free spirit, fly
    to the clouds in the heavens,
    warmed by the sun,
    with all troubles cleared away
    all restraints got rid of,
    all restrictions cast aside.

    Been one of my favourite songs since I was a little kid.

    It's not like I especially relate to them or anything like that, but I like the lyrics to Gravedigger by Architects. Lots of cool metaphors and stuff. Here are some snippets:

    "An iron fist in a velvet glove
    Another vulture posing as a dove
    Do you have no shame? Look at what you've become
    You are the reason we are bitter and then some"

    "You said you'd change the world, but death still flies east
    The blind lead the blind, so we bomb for peace"

    I also like lots of the lyrics from They Might Be Giants songs, they're interesting in a way I can't describe. For example:

    "Sit beside me at the helm
    Yeah, this is what I call the helm
    And this button here is the fast-forward button

    Did you say what I think you just said?
    My hat looks good on me?
    I agree, I agree"

    from The Cap'm,

    "Now it's curtains for me
    And I'll spend eternity
    Doing joyless cartwheels in the void"

    from End of the Rope, and

    "Catbug is a cat, but he's got bugness in his veins
    Manhouse lives within himself with thoughtful human brains
    Neither one is equal to the challenge of the freak well call
    The bee of the bird of the moth

    Now the moth defeats the mouse and man
    It's messing with the plan, it can't be believed
    'Cause it's just a hummingbird moth
    Who's acting like a bird that thinks it's a bee

    Is it us or it that's messed up?"

    From Bee of the Bird of the Moth.

    Finally, from Agar Agar - Sorry About the Carpet:

    "What we don't wanna see lies there
    Stranger slapped a dog that fades into the egg"

    "What's wrong with those eggs?
    I see your all pale
    And it's ruining the carpet
    Yeah it's ruining the carpet

    I said sorry 'bout the carpet
    Sorry 'bout the egg"

    It's very weird and random, but it somehow hits different when you listen to her sing it.

    Mitski and The Crane Wives have the best lyrics. I love songs that make you think
