Kid’s outside playing, but it’s barely dawn.
And I find myself just wishing they’d get off my lawn.

A line that you remember because it's witty, clever, poetic, well crafted, touching, a gut punch, or it just resonates with you?

For me it's; "The sunshine bores the daylights out of me..." from the Rolling Stones song 'Rocks Off'.
"I'm down on my hands and knees, every time the doorbell rings. I shake like a toothache, when I hear myself sing."- Ashes of American Flags, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco)

The real truth about it is, no one gets it right
The real truth about it is, we're all supposed to try

The sting of reason, the splash of tears
The northern and southern hemispheres
Love emerges, then it disappears
-Paul Simon, I Do It For Your Love

A lot of Tom Waits, for example, Hold On or Kentucky Avenue.

Joni Mitchell.

"And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
'Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want"

From Zane Williams’ Jayton and Jill

Jayton never told her about that night, how he’d taken his dad’s old 45.

He’d been driving’ ‘round thinking how nobody’d miss him if he’d just ended it all.

He couldn’t see past his own pain until he saw a pretty girl walking in the rain.

On that night when Jayton met Jill.

Robert Hunter is my go-to for memorable lyrics; too many to mention, but one of my favorites (and extremely apropos these days)--"we made wrinkles, advertised them as creases".
