Lets get really nostalgic now! Dave Troland trollman Wow. There are so many songs having lyrics that made an impression on me I don't know where to begin. As you can see on the Nostrivia board Todd Rundgren is a personal hero of mine, and he's had some brilliant lyrics over the years.

From "Does Anybody Love You"

You're so lovely, so wise
You could make Venus crawl
But love between the ugly
Is the most beautiful love of all

From "Property"

Since God began it we've been dividing up the planet
When you see something and want it
You've got to put your name tag on it
And we go on carving, meanwhile half the world is starving
It's a crime - hands off what is mine!

From "My Angel"

When I have fallen from grace
When I grow weak from the pace
I can feel the breath of gentle wings on my face
And when the world closes in around me
Then my angel will come and roll away the stone
Like a hand reaching down from the heavens
And when the darkness falls all around me
Then my angel will draw aside the veil
I am safe in the arms of my angel

I just love the way this guy writes. His lyrics have inspired me over the years, and his hit "Hello, It's Me" has special significance to my wife and I. Bravo, Todd.
