'No sweeping exits... or off stage lines...'

...what an amazing line that is... what single sentences from Stones songs jump out at you as being particularly evocative or memorable?

Once I was a rich man and
Now I am so poor
But never in my sweet short life
Have I felt like this before

I always loved how this line sounds, but I have to confess I don't know what it means. What's a sweeping exit? And an offstage line?

Great line!

Could be lines not on the script OR lines of coke on the amps!

Those are theatrical references. Mick obviously was thinking about Marianne, who was an actress.

I'm trippin' through the days at lighting speed

She blew my nose and then she blew my mind

Black girls just want to get f*cked all night, I just don't have that much jam

I shouted out who killed the Kennedy's when after all it was you and me

I've got silence on my radio, let the airwaves flow

Waitress with broken noses, check out girls strikin' poses

Is there a more evocative stanza in recent Stones related memory?

"But I see you in my inner eye
Touch me with a gentle smile
Wonder if you catch my mood
Can you feel my solitude"


Other honorable mentions go to

"I was groping in the darkness
Seeing dangers in the port
Tortured into silence
My back against the wall"


"You can lose the love of a lifetime
In a single roll
You can gain a fortune in an instant
Or you can lose your soul"

'In the bar you're getting drunk, I ain't in love, I ain't in luck.
Hide the switch and shut the light, let it all come down tonight.

Someone who broke me up with the corner of her smile

Did you ever feel the pain he felt upon the cross?

It's just that demon life has got me in its sway

My cards are on the table but the drinks are all run out...


Just a face disappearing without trace...I'll be lost, I'll be lost

And your late night friends leave you in the cold gray dawn


Everywhere I look I see your eyes

I'm just living to be lying by your side

I have my freedom but I don't have much time

I'm voting with my feet who needs this aggravation
