Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I've got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?

-Young and Beautiful by Lana del Rey

My favorite is One Direction's Little things

"I know you've never loved the crinkles by your eyes when you smile
You've never loved your stomach or your thighs, the dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine
But I'll love them endlessly" 😍

From The Beatles song We Can Work It Out:

"Life is very short and there's no time for fussing and fighting"

While Paul McCartney wrote most of that song, John Lennon came up with that line.

"In typical fashion everything dies and gets swept away. The people we put high on pedestals crumble like statues. You'd be crazy if you ever thought they wouldn't. You'd be a f*cking dreamer."

- Typical Fashion by Love Lost But Not Forgotten
Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
- Bokonon (Kurt Vonnegut), Cat's Cradle

"In the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair. But Gollum and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her. Yeah. And, there's nothing I can do now. I guess I'll keep on Ramblin..."

Led Zeppelin, Ramble on. My favorite song of all time.

How do I choose just one? I always liked "It took a tattooed boy from Birkenhead/ To really, really open her eyes" and the rest of What She Said by the Smiths.

"The Good Stuff" by Kenny Chesney gets me every time.

"Bein' right there as our time got small
And holdin' her hand when good the Lord called her up
Yeah man that's the good stuff"

A penny for my thoughts, oh no I'll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singing
Funny when you're dead how people start listening
