What's the most romantic lyric EVER ?

The other day I heard that old Byran Adams song, "When You Love A Woman."

That line where he says "when you can see your unborn children in her eyes, you know you really loved a woman."

OH MY GOD, that line melts me every time. It's just so perfect.

What are some others?

Untill The end of time, I'll be there for you
You own my heart and Mind, I truly adore You
If god ever struck me blind. Your beauty I'd still see.
Love is too weak to define just what U mean to me.


Love 2 me implies a duty to please and for it to be everlasting. These linse sum it all up for me.

lyrics about eyes are cliche, and this unborn children talk is just clumsy.

Yes, either that or "shake that ass, girl."
So poetic.

If I was your girlfriend, would you remember to tell me all the things you forgot when I was your man?
If I was your best friend, would you run to me if somebody hurt you even if that somebody was me?

Ooh mi amor es por ti que yo vivo y por ti suspiro.
No solo hoy, solo hoy si no siempre.
Tu estrella brilla siempre en mi.
Y este sueño contigo sera realidad te quiero mucho
Baby te quiero mucho, mi amor.

She's my only true love.
She's all that i think of.
look here, in my wallet - that's her.

She grew up on a farm there,
There's a place on my arm where
I've written her name next to mine.

I love There Is A Light That Never Goes Out by the Smiths.


True, some find it a little comical - all that talk of being run down by a bus, but it is achingly romantic.

Hell, even the title is mushy

i usually don't pay attention to the "whats the best.....ever?" posts because things are so subjective there is obviously no way to really decide...

but i clicked on this one just cuz i was curious what folks would say...

and while i don't know if its the most 'romantic' lyric ever, i DO agree with squiddyren that THAT line is one of Prince's coolest lines ever...a gem indeed..

"All you need is love" is a lie 'cause
We had a love but we still said goodbye
Now we’re tired, battered fighters

And it stings when it nobody’s fault cause there's
Nothing to blame At the drop of your name
It’s only the air you took and the breath you left


So maybe I’ll sleep inside my coat and
Wait on your porch 'til you come back home
Oh, right
I can’t find a flight
So I’ll check the weather wherever you are
Cause I wanna know if you can see the stars tonight
It might be my only right

John Mayer - split screen sadness

I realy love this song...recognise the emotions in it very well. especially the 'breath' thing, very powerfull way to say her memory will be here, always.
It was not in vain...it was in Minneapolis!

I couldn't pick one line from this song, but it's got to be one of the most romantic songs out there.
u2 - All I Want is You

You say you want
Diamonds on a ring of gold
You say you want
Your story to remain untold


But all the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you


You say you'll give me
A highway with no one on it
Treasure just to look upon it
All the riches in the night


You say you'll give me
Eyes in a moon of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest
But all the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you


You say you want
Your love to work out right
To last with me through the night


You say you want
Diamonds on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold
Your love not to grow cold


All the promises we break
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you


You...all I want is...
You...all I want is...
You...all I want is...
You...
Let the rain come down...17 days....

Great choice! One of my absolute favorite songs of all time by one of my fave groups. So beautiful it makes me cry. touched

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I’ll make you so sure about it

God only knows what I’d be without you

If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows what I’d be without you

If you should ever leave me
Well life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me




Another set of beautiful lyrics, Stevie Wonder's For Once in My Life

For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I’ve needed so long
For once, unafraid, I can go where life leads me
And somehow I know I’ll be strong

For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Would make my dreams come true

For once in my life I won’t let sorrow hurt me
Not like it hurt me before
For once, I have something I know won’t desert me
I’m not alone anymore

For once, I can say, this is mine, you can’t take it
As long as I know I have love, I can make it
For once in my life, I have someone who needs me

I agree, but I think that really clinches the song is how he sings it, not just the lyrics to it.

sry i no this is supposed to be a non-prince forum but I have to say "I betta get down on my knees, cuz I want you". Aaaaaah my heart melts every time I hear that.
Prince says my name in one of his songs. In Little Red Corvette, he says, "Liz is on the verge of being obscene" Ha, ha, just kidding. But seriously.
