I searched and nothing came up, so here we go.

What are some of your favorite TGA lyrics?

Mine:
"You were gonna be my Judy Garland, we were gonna share your Tin Man heart."
"You found the bandages inside the pen, and the stitches on the radio."
"And I know you're dying for a good time, I'm dying to breathe again."

Great topic. Actually thought of this exact question last week.

Absolutely love:
"Saw your summer dress hanging on the back of the lawn" Conjures up images of simpler times of yore.

"I need a cadillac ride, I need a soft summer night, say a prayer for my soul, senorita"

"Come July, we'll ride the Ferris Wheel and go round and round and round"

Great choices from both of you.

"The glory hasn't come and it's probably gonna fade like a tattoo that hides the shame"

"I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my first wife, Everybody leaves and I'd expect as much from you"

"When we float out into the ether, into the everlasting arms, I hope we don't hear Marley's chains we forged in life"

Latest album has to be for me:

"What you don't have you don't need it anymore."
"I saw you walking back and forth, about another boy" (Although I think its just mainly the way brian sings it that I love)

All time although theres sooo many to choose from possibly the most obvious:

"Well I wonder which song they're gonna play when we go. I hope its something quiet and minor and peaceful and slow"

Absolutely gorgeous line.

"And I always have remembered, in case you're wondering,
84 takes a lifetime, and Bobby does it better."

Not really brilliant lyrics it's just how's it's sung I love. Probably my favourite line out of all the songs.

"There were Southern accents
On the radio
As I drove home
And at night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
It's a pretty good song
Maybe you know the rest"

And that puts probably my two favourite artists into 20 seconds of perfection!

"And we sing with our heroes thirty-three rounds per minute
We're never going home util the sun says we're finished
And I'll love you forever if I ever love at all
Wild hearts, blue jeans, & white t-shirts"

"But you know the summer always brought it.
That wild and reckless breeze.
And in the backseat, we're just trying to find some room for our knees."

Just off the top of my head, obviously there are so many great lyrics

i have a lot of favorites but recently i've loved -
"the pounding in the street, was your heart in 4/4 time"

also,

and i walked down by the shipyards
near the place where i was born
saying "ah maria, if you woulda known me when..."
but she just smiles by the light on the navesink banks
saying "listen baby i know you now"

And the officers will smile as your gypsy eyes persuade the trial. As the prosecution rests just because it began to cramp your style. And the jury, found hung in the room. Heavy with the trail of your perfume, and a wink in your eyes that says, "boy, I will be comming for you soon..."

"And I lit a fire that wouldn't go out.
Until it consumed the walls and roof of this house.
Until all I remember was burning away.
And all I remember, you're burnin' away."

Love Film Noir, lyrics sum up those self-destructive feeling that you have after someone really special leaves, its sad but this song captures it so perfectly

"I'll love you forever if I ever love at all"

"Well things got bad, and things got worse.
Half like a blessing, half like a curse.
It's so hard to see sometimes,
Got a little clearer 'bout dusk last night.
Ain't nobody got a blessing like mine.
Ain't nobody got a blessing like mine."

"And I learned about the blues from this kitten I knew.
Her hair was raven and her heart was like a tomb."

"I love you more than the stars in the sky, but your name escapes me tonight"


...and
"*sigh*" (1930)

"I wanna know how you lose, pretty baby,
Does it show in your eyes?
Are you born to be a runner, or are you a casual sigh?
Did the boys at school break your precious heart in two?"

The way Brian dragged out that last "two" sends shivers down my spine.

"We'll blow one last kiss,
To all the nights just like this
under these Central Jersey skies."

"You know I had these ballroom dreams.
That, as a child, came to me.
I was a boy in Grandma's arms.
A mother's pride and a wounded heart.
And I was full with fiery wonder.
You wore Audrey Hepburn pearls.
You were the only one who understood me then and the only one who will."

Oh goodness, so many! But I'll try to narrow it down by album:

SOS:
"You said I love you more than the stars in the sky, but your name just escapes me tonight" -1930 (so beautiful/heartbreaking)

S&tQ
"And we sing with our heroes thirty-three rounds per minute
We're never going home util the sun says we're finished
And I'll love you forever if I ever love at all
Wild hearts, blue jeans, & white t-shirts" -Blue Jeans and White Tshirts (classic.)

59S
"Come July we'll ride the ferris wheel, go round and round and round. And if you never let me go, I will never let you down." -Backseats (I just love the idea. It's so romantic *swoons*)

AS
"Did you grow up a good girl? Your daddy's pride? Did you make all the right moves, take all the right drugs right on time? American girls. They want the whole world. They want every last little light in New York City." -The Queen of Lower Chelsea (pretty much the story of my life summed up in one lyric. amazing.)

'Did you grown up lonesome? And one of a kind? Were your records all you had to pass the time?'

infact, this one's probably my favourite of all time;

'The waiter served my coffee with a consolation sigh'.

Purely because I hear it and it just sets a scene in my head, any lyric that does that is just wow.

"Boys will be boys
and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons sometimes
and all you can do
is just stand by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says

For some reason 'the gravity hangs on all the selling points you have' really sticks out to me from the new album,
and I've always loved 'it's all right man, I'm only bleeding man, stay hungry, stay free and do the best you can'.

I have so many, but i'll try and narrow it down to about 4.

"But I wish you knew her now
she’s a better side of me now
and I’m doing the best I can
its what you wanted"

"And even if that's a lie, she should've given me a try
When we were kids on the field of the first day of school
I would've been her fool
And I would've sang out your name in those old high school halls
You tell that to Gayle, if she calls"

"And if you're scared of the future tonight
we'll just take it each hour one at a time"

"Everybody leaves and I'd expect as much from you
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my old life
Everybody leaves, so why, why wouldn't you?"

"waiter serving my coffee with a consolation sigh"

"boys will be boys... you oughta do"

"come july we'll ride the ferris wheel, go round and round and round. and if you never let me go, i will never let you down." conjures up an image of a wheel, where each part pushes the other to keep it going. very cool.

"i saw taillights last night in a dream about my first wife. everybody leaves and i'd expect as much from you.

"and i'm not sure if i belong here, if i ever really left, or if i can go home"

"if i cut you open, i can repair"
