"Layin' It On The Line", Favorite Lines from Eighties Songs, Songs Beginning with B

The purpose of this page is really pretty simple, I'm just looking for people's favorite song lyrics, preferably 4 lines or less from a song. No, I won't list entire songs or mail people song lyrics (don't even ask, I won't respond). I'd like to list entire song lyrics to everyone's favorite songs, but that's a blatent copywrite violation, and I don't need any nasty letters in the mail, but a few lines from a song should be considered fair use. So feel free to let us all know what your favorite lines from an eighties song is.

Loud voices behind the wall
Another sleepless night for me

Between a man and his wife
And when they leave the tears well up in her eyes

Not to change your mind, but just to say I miss you, baby, good luck, goodbye Bobby Jean
