OK, Twitter, let's settle this. What is the best Paul Simon lyric?

My pick:

"She comes back to tell me she's gone. As if I didn't know that. As if I didn't know my own bed. As if I'd never noticed the way she brushed her hair from her forehead." (from "Graceland")
These are great answers. So far The Boxer seems to be ahead.

I have to add that we had a running joke in the band for years based on "I am a rock."

Whenever something happened in the White House, we'd sing:

"I am Barack. I am Joe Biiiiiiiiden."
Loving these answers.

I get chills just READING this one:

I once saw a documentary about Vietnam vets coming home from war, dealing with transition issues and PTSD and two of them were at a group meeting singing "Homeward Bound" in the corner. It was one of the most beautiful things I'd ever heard.

so beautiful, so honest, so forgiving.

Music is such a fucking RELIEF sometimes.

You feel SEEN.
