Your best opening line, or top three ...

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? 😝]

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

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

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.

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

"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.

"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.....

"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"

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"
