What's your favorite line from a song, and why?

I have a lot of favorite songs and lines from songs, but for now, what I think of is:


"Pwede bang itigil muna ang pag-ikot ng mundo?"
(Can we just make the world stop turning for a while?)

It's a line from my all-time(since 2005?06?07?) favorite song "Spoliarium" by my favorite, now defunct band Eraseheads. It was originally released in 1997 from the the band's 5th album Sticker Happy and was remade by Imago in 2005(?)


The line is perfect, vague, but clear, sad and happy.


Can we just make the world stop turning for while? I ask when everything is in topsy turvy. Or when I'm confused. It's a sad line. Like when you're fed up or just want to clear things out.

Can we just make the world stop turning for while? When I'm too happy. Seeing people I miss. Being with the most humorous situations and when I am listening to my favorite songs, seeing a rainbow, etc.


But my reason is quite detached from the whole message and meaning of the song.

Pwede bang itigil muna ang pag-ikot ng mundo?
Pwede bang itigil muna ang pag-ikot ng mundo?
Pwede bang itigil muna ang pag-ikot ng mundo?
Pwede bang itigil muna ang pag-ikot ng mundo?
pag-ikot ng mundo?
pag-ikot ng mundo?
pag-ikot ng mundo?
pag-ikot ng mundo?...repeat till fade...
