Vote for the "Most Striking" Springsteen Lyric

You get to pick ten on the list provided or write-in one (or more) of your own.  Head over to Blogness on the Edge of Town and vote!  So far " Is a dream a lie if it don't come true or is it something worse" from "The River" is in the lead, followed by "Show a little faith, there's magic in the night" from "Thunder Road."

My picks:

"A dream of life comes to me, like a catfish dancin' on the end of my line."  --The Rising

"Faith will be rewarded." --Land of Hopes and Dreams

" Poor man wanna be rich, rich man wanna be king. And a king ain't satisfied till he rules everything."--Badlands

"Nothing feels better than blood on blood." --Highway Patrolman

"Poets down here don't write nothing at all, they just stand back and let it all be." --Jungleland

"You've got to learn to live with what you can't rise above." --Tunnel of Love

"Why do the things that we treasure most slip away in time, till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind."--Life Itself

"Ain't no sin to be glad you're alive." --Badlands

"I had a jukebox graduate for first mate, she couldn't sail but she sure could sing." --Growin' Up

"All my life I fought this fight, the fight that no man can ever win." --The Promise

"The Daily News asks her for the dope, she say's 'Man, the dope's that there's still hope.'"--Does This Bus Stop at 82 Street
