I guess that there are lines that you really enjoy in Jeff songs, here are the ones i like :

The names have not been changed to protect the innocent , the names have all been kept the same to incriminate the guilty from Complete history of Jeff sexual conquests.

it makes me feel like dirt
i'm just gonna write where you are on my shirt
from Don't Be Upset

but i'm walking like a werefolf &
i've got my compass pointed at the moon
from Graveyard

then you get a good review & then you get a bad review
so don't get suckered either way cuz none of them know you
from Don't let the record label take you out to lunch

And the big round blue boat drifts around in the dark from Alphabet

now i'm standing on the seam between my memories & dreams
and i see a better person waiting his turn to be me
from you don't have to be a scientist....

Back when I was 63 the public rediscovered me
My comic books and records had all become rare cult-collector items
from Back when i was four

I think if kissing someone could make them pregnant
the last person I kissed would have had their kid by now
from Life

But maybe its just things happen fast and new old friends take time. from New old friends

And my story is so long
I can't remember the beginning
from Seattle


Of course there are tons of lyrics i love but these are some of my faves, what are yours ??

i'd have to pick the whole song seattle, i just can relate to that song 100%

and then "this kid named grimm(at least i think he says grimm) punched a cat in the head" cos i have a friend named grimm and picturing her punching a cat gets me everytime

i like this lots too

is that what it comes to all along
everything tht you feel will someday feel wrong
i was talking to my friend erick to see what he thunk
& he said "jeff it's weird but i no longer look like a punk"
i guess we don't need our clothes for an identity crutch
& we looked at each other & we didn't look like much

Mine are:

"Don't be upset, it's only an octopus"

The whole of the Chelsea Hotel Oral Sex Song. It makes me laugh and cry in the same 10 seconds.

"You'll just need more flatteries to recharge your batteries"

"And all I had to do was help it murder people" (The Red Hand)

"If you hear a Neil Young record, or Bob Dylan or whatever,
You might think: Yeah some people like me, but I wont be that good ever,
& i'm sure the thing is probably dylan himself too
stayed up some nights wishing he was as good as Ginsberg or Camus"

There's something about that line I really love, it just makes think and feel like I can relate to the artists I love.

"Maybe it's just that humans aren't equipped to feel improvement"

That always cheers me up when I'm upset. Always.

As whole songs, Heavy Heart and Life are pretty amazing lyrically.

Jeff has to be my favourite lyricist for sure. He's so sincere in a world of bullshit.

That is one tough question.
I shall ponder it for sometime before putting it up. There are way too many to choose from. Question

yeah i still have to answer to that topic!ok for tonight it will be :

"I guess I better love you cos youíre all that I deserve
And I know that youíre not perfect but everyone else is worse
And ill help you move some furniture somewhere its never been before
But the rooms so small, the dresser drawer, it wonít let us get back out the door

Just tell me that you like me in the same sentence as a building
Cos it would be such a relief to see, Iím just a natural thing"
