    You nailed yourself to the cross again ...

    I live ..., wrong part of the sky ...

    Terror ..., teaches me my shape ...

    [Just browsing my song book, and came to mind... you, you-all?]
    [Wow, they all look a bit serious, wonder what that means? 😝]

    She walked into a roadside bar, that bore her name.

  • @metalfoot  Apr 7

    Made peace with the fact I'm a talentless hack...

  • @iveg Apr 7

    Oh. You meant opening line OF A SONG? 😁 For this FAWM it was
    "The world, blue as a bruise, suspended in space"

  • @tallmarkmusic  Apr 7

    Pineapple tastes good on pizza, I don't care what you say.
    (Simple Matters - FAWM 2017)

    Props on the thread idea @ustaknow - I have an obsession with good opening lines!

  • @tsunamidaily Apr 7

    she had a deja vu do and a smile like christmas
    cold and inviting at the same time

  • @siebass  Apr 7

    I don't know the best 1st line, but I do know the best 2nd line to any story is "And then the murders began."

  • @siebass  Apr 7

    To prove the theory:

    @ustaknow You nailed yourself to the cross again. And then the murders began

    @jamkar She walked into a roadside bar, that bore her name. And then the murders began.

    @metalfoot Made peace with the fact I'm a talentless hack. And then the murders began.

    @iveg The world, blue as a bruise, suspended in space. And then the murders began.

    @tallmarkmusic Pineapple tastes good on pizza, I don't care what you say. And then the murders began.

    @tsunamidaily She had a deja vu do and a smile like chrismas, cold and inviting at the same time. And then the murders began.

    And one of mine:

    Whaddaya say, another cup of Earl Grey? And then the murders began.

  • @metalfoot  Apr 7

    @siebass You have learned the dark side of the force well... and then the murders began.

  • @tcelliott  Apr 7

    I don't have best lines, I don't think. But just paging through, here are a couple recent first lines that I like.

    I begged you with a look....

    If you're walking on the moon...

    You take from my body, my blood and my sweat

  • @ustaknow Apr 7

    I was killing everything, "and then the murders began" 😝 ... lovely! @siebass , hilarious! 😀

    ~~~ @ellie009 is a spam account, imo ~~~ they're selling academic papers

  • @bithprod Apr 9

    "Hearts beating like broken mufflers in a city the size of a savior's soul" - from the best song I've ever (co-)written, in my own humble opinion. I've probably got far better opening lines, but this song is always top of my list.

  • @enigma4711  Apr 9

    "Love is the strangest thing, one minute you wanna cry and the next you wanna sing" from my song Mrs. Blue. Maybe my best opening line this year. Great question, @ustaknow 😀

  • @atitlan Apr 10

    @siebass Nick Cave agrees with you ...

    (in spirit, if not in fact)

  • @pcob1993  Apr 27

    "I was swooning to the vibe from the Canon In D As she sashayed down the aisle on her father's arm
    And then the murders began....."
    Oh no, I think I hear a banjo.....

  • @ustaknow Apr 27

  • @wacha Apr 27

    "What were you thinking bringing her home to our bed?
    Well I wasn't thinking when I shot her in the head."

  • @poptarthero Apr 29

    "I am a reptile with erectile disfunction"

    "Kanan ball the future, Kanan ball the suggestion"

    "I ripped off her twin tails and replaced them with snails"

    "Here's laughing to think that I would care"

    "I want to eat grease out of a McDolands bag while dancing with a twin tailed maiden and pool the vomit from school kids over the sight of our public display of unaffected careless caring"

  • @darkmantle  May 9

    It's more like 2 lines from the same song. But I'm sharing it as one.

    "open up your eyes
    look around and see"
