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

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.

But everybody knows,
Each time she looks in the mirror,
She lets her feeling show.

"Lullaby" by The Cure
Quietly he laughs and shaking his head
Creeps closer now, closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow and quicker than flies
His arms are all around me and his tongue in my eyes
"Be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy
"Don't struggle like that or I will only love you more
" For it's much too late to get away or turn on the light
" The spiderman is having you for dinner tonight!"

"Lust For Kicks" by The Cars
He's got his plastic sneakers, she's got her Roebuck purse
He's got his butane flicker, she's got it worse

They're mad about each other, and they blame it all on their lust for kicks
