It's hard to chose a single line of Bob Dylan, who hs probably written more great lines then the rest of the world's lyricists put together (Cole Porter and Ira Gershwin just didn't write enough songs!) but how about these:-

They're selling postcards of the hanging; they're painting the passports brown

and

The ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her face
?

On second thoughts, maybe we should ban Bob Dylan or the internet might break.

VDGG?

Of course it must be. You ever play two at once? I prefer Boleas Panic from that album.

Wondered what you meant for a sec.

I used to when I played in a prog band about 35 years ago. Occasionally toy with the idea of tenor and bari together (Dana Colley in Morphine) but haven't plucked up the nerve yet.

I do believe the man I was speaking about now goes by the name 'Jaxen' or 'Jaxon'. I used to have a great y**tube link to a performance of "Darkness'. Wonderful stuff.

But it's really not that you can't see the forest for the trees, you've never been out in the woods alone.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

På bara Fyra sekunder, underbart är kort - Magnus Uggla

In only four seconds, wonderful is short.

A song about a premature ejaculation sufferer who eventually meets a girl who comes as quickly. I love a happy ending. It got to the top of the Swedish charts in '94.
