Ernest Hemingway said “all you have to do is write one true sentence” ~ when it comes to lyrics it is usually a single line that sticks with me and makes me fall in love with a song, as if the whole piece just branches out from that one phrase that spoke directly to my soul. I like to think that many of us have that specific moment within a song that speaks to us in a very intimate way and is the reason we go back to it time and time again. Here are my top ten favourite one-liners ~ click on each to have a listen!

Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
A symphony of sympathies
