What are some of your favorite Bright Eyes lyrics?

Bright Eyes has a fairly vast discography, it's really difficult to choose favorites...
"Does he kiss your eyelids in the morning
when you start to raise your head and does he
sing to you incessantly
in the space between your bed and wall?
Does he walk around all day at school
With his feet inside your shoes
looking down every few steps to pretend he walks with you?
Oh does he know that place below your neck
that is your favorite to be touched and does he
cry through broken sentences, like I love you far too much
Does he lay awake listening to your breath
Worried you smoke too many cigarettes..."
"This is the first day of my life
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you
And now I don't care I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy."
"I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health
I said there's nothing I can do for you you can't do for yourself
He said oh yes you can, just hold my hand, I think that that would help
So I sat with him a while and asked him how he felt
He said I think I'm cured
No in fact, I'm sure
Thank you stranger
For your therapeutic smile."
"I want a lover I don't have to love
I want a girl who's too sad to give a f*ck
Where's the kid with the chemicals?
I thought he said to meet him here but I'm not sure
I've got the money if you've got the time
she said it feels good
I said I'll give it a try..."
"We made love on the living room floor
With the noise in the background from a televised war
And in that deafening pleasure, I thought I heard someone say
If we walk away they'll walk away."
"Now I do as I please, and I lie through my teeth
Someone might get hurt, but it won't be me
I should probably feel cheap
But I just feel free
And a little bit empty."
"Oh my morning's coming back
The whole world’s waking up
All the city buses swimming past
I’m happy just because
I found out I am really no one."

"And the truth is I've been dreaming of some tired tranquil place,
Where the weather won't get trapped inside my bones"
-June on the West Coast
"..but we cry, and we dance, and we stumble into love with perfect, awkward grace"
- A Celebration Upon Completion
"And just when I got fed up with that gray sky
The sun came out of nowhere like a bar fight
And it knocked out the wind and it bruised me with light
And I felt grateful for living just like I feel tonight"

This is the first day of my life.
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
But now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy.Source(s): First Day of My Life......

The song that makes me cry the most is a song called "My Immortal" by Evanescence. Beautiful , but sad written lyrics. A very powerful song that brings me to tears from the very first line of the song being sung. Every time. Amy Lee can sing the hell out of that song.
