    A vocalist I was in a band with back in the 90's, I think he pinched it from a John Irving novel.

    Love is but a song we sing
    Fear's the way we die
    You can make the mountains ring
    Or make the angels cry

    The river flows, flows to the sea
    wherever that river flows
    is where I want to be

    Bob Dylan gave this line to Roger McGuinn who turned it into the Ballad of Easy Rider.

    I like when the first line of a song isn't really part of the lyrics, like:

    We've done four already but now we're steady
    And then they went: One, two, three, four...

    And...

    Fart stinks like a mother******!

    I have always liked Sturgill Simpson's - You Can Have the Crown

    "Well, I've been spending all my money on weed n' pills
    Tryin' to write a song that'll pay the bills
    But it ain't came yet, so I guess I'll have to rob a bank"

    That's pretty cool as I'm a big Irving fan.
