Writer's Block: More than words

Which song lyrics send shivers down your spine and really hit you emotionally?

Good question. But there's so many, I'm listening to one now actually: The Gathering's "Solace".

They don't always have lyrics (or not understandable ones) but pretty much anything by Dead Can Dance would make the list. Specifically though, there's a few songs that always get me. Like "Rakim", "Yulunga" and "I Am Stretched on Your Grave". "Yulunga" in particular gives me goosebumps and makes me feel cold, like a breeze has gone by me. Not too weird for a song called Spirit Dance.

From an emotional aspect, well that list of songs is in the hundreds, and transcends genre boundaries.
