I just was thinking, and John is really good for writing songs, and there are always a few lines in each song that stand out more than any others. Here are some of mine:
 
Sympathy - I wasn't all the things I tried to make believe I was
 
Here is Gone - All your lies weren't enough to keep me here
 
It's Over - No one can believe in things that never change
 
Name - Don't it make you sad to know that life, is more than who we are
 
Without you Here - Love could heal the pain, the truth is never vain, it turns strangers into lovers, and enemies to brothers, Just say you understand.. I never had this planned
 
Feel the Silence - When your fighting the current you forget how to live
 
Truth is a whisper - It's just a promise no one ever keeps
 
Acoustic #3 - Your mother loves your father, cause she's got know where to go
 
That is just off the top of my head. I will go through my playlist and name some more. I would like to say, for the record, that my favorite line from Iris is "When everythings made to be broken".
 
Also, my favorite lyrics John has ever written are probably "Always Know Where You Are" - not a goo song, but those lyrics are phenomonal. I love them all, they all stand out.  
 
How about everyone else?

This one immediately popped into my head because it really resonates with me ...
 
Name - Scars are souvenirs you never lose, the past is never far.

Sounds like someone's itching for the second favorite line tournament...

Yes it is. And that's why, after all these years it remains my favorite song of all time.

Slide:
Don't you love the life you killed, the priest is on the phone, your father hit the wall, your ma disowned you.  
 
Iris:  
You can't fight the tears that ain't coming, or the moment of truth in your lies. When everything feels like the movies, yeah you bleed just to know you're alive.
 
Cuz You're Gone:
You beat your head upon your wall, you disconnect yourself from it all, cuz you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable, and I wanna get in so bad and I don't know how.  
 
I'll think of more later. The one I posted from Cuz You're Gone is probably my favorite lyric from any of their songs. It reminds me of my first real relationship.

I love the Fallin' all around us, is this some kind of joke they're trying to pull on us? / Fallin' all around us, I'll turn my head off for a while part from Flat Top.
 
Oh, and He asked what was wrong with me, he said I looked like a Hollywood girl / I said that Hollywood could fall in the ocean, man / cause it's the ugliest place in the whole wide world from On The Lie.  
 
But then both those songs are just fcking amazing.

Good picks! John is good at really clever lyrics I find. I listen to songs by other people, and the lyrics are really good, but I find that they wouldn't be that hard to come up with, while Johns are emotional, relatable (sp?), and intelligent.
