|Thank you! I was hoping someone would have written this.|
|Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Static Lyrics||7 months ago|
|I love it. I love it when literature or the arts delve into the deep and dark territory that is the apocalypse. Despite being of no religious beliefs, the image that's painted is so passionate and dedicated that it's fascinating to me.|
|Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Antennas to Heaven Lyrics||7 months ago|
Still though, that translated is:
Be careful, my friend,
he told me, if you want we will play
he told me, if you want we will play
Be careful, my friend, my friend
With feet that's how. How how? Like that.
The good king ...
King dagobert to ...
King dagobert to put his pants on backwards but as it was an idiot.
CoCoCo the monkey, early yesterday, the earlier in his little cage, he told me, if you want we will play, attention, my friend, my friend, balalalalalala.
King dagobert to put her panties in reverse.
We sing a little Titanic: sol fa sol
...Which still sounds fitting with the song.
|Depeche Mode – New Dress Lyrics||7 months ago|
|It's crazy that over 25 years on, nothing has changed at all. In fact, it's much worse. It's a very similar message to Panic by The Smiths.|
|Frightened Rabbit – Holy Lyrics||9 months ago|
The song speaks to me on a personal level too. I'm in a long term relationship and I'm perfectly happy with my life, but I love nothing more than spending time on my own, I treasure being with myself. People seem to find it so strange.
"Don't care if I'm lonely, 'Cos it feels like home." - that about sums it up. I never feel more popular than when I'm alone.
I know it's strictly not official meaning, but it speaks to me in that way.
|Harvey Danger – Little Round Mirrors Lyrics||9 months ago|
|Fantastic interpretation. Either you are actually the singer Aaron Huffman, or you're someone who has so much appreciation for the little things that you're willing to take out the time to write that. Thank you.|

|I love the harmonics on this.|
|Frightened Rabbit – The Loneliness and the Scream Lyrics||1 year ago|
I have fallen in the forest
Did you hear me?
I absolutely LOVE that lyric. It sums up the whole song for me.
|Taylor Swift – We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together Lyrics||2 years ago|
|I've got an inkling this is about the end of a relationship.|
|The Maccabees – Toothpaste Kisses Lyrics||2 years ago|
|Its funny how the two words "Toothpaste Kisses" can describe so much.|
|Bombay Bicycle Club – Dust On The Ground Lyrics||2 years ago|
I can't believe Jack Steadman was still in school when he wrote this song. Very mature lyrics for what - a 16 year old (at the time)?
I treasure this song so much. The atmosphere of it is just breathtaking.
|fun. – Carry On Lyrics||2 years ago|
Tell ya, I'm really growing to Some Nights. I've avoided listening to it for a few months now as the radio over here just pimped the hell out of them, so I found it v hard to listen to. This song is definitely a highlight also.
I doubt it will top Aim
|Jack's Mannequin – Hammers And Strings (A Lullaby) Lyrics||2 years ago|
|I remember watching him live and just as this song was starting, my mate told me it was about his old piano. I had no idea about this and was pretty much brought to tears when watching him play it live. Amazing.|
|The Maccabees – Love You Better Lyrics||2 years ago|
"Due to copyright restrictions, we are not authorized to display these lyrics."
What kind of bullshit is this? The music industry is a fucking state it really is. They're LYRICS. It's just words on a page, that's that. I can't fathom how on earth you can slap a law on lyrics. Music, I can understand, but when it boils down to it, you're essentially taking the english dictionary, removing the words you don't need and then arranging them in a way that makes sense.
Fuckkkkkk this winds me up.
|Feeder – Dove Grey Sands Lyrics||2 years ago|
Personally, i feel it's about him missing his home. He's from Newport, which is right on the south coast of wales.
To me, it's about all the shit that's gone down in the 3 or so years prior to PTS and how coming back to his hometown to reflect can help.
|Ed Sheeran – Lego House Lyrics||2 years ago|
|I'm sure somewhere in this song he says "I pity the fool"|
|Incubus – If Not Now, When? Lyrics||3 years ago|
I was listening to the Jimmy Eat World song "For me this is heaven" and it contains the lyrics:
And the mindless comfort grows
When I'm alone with my 'great' plans
And this is what she says gets her through it
"If I don't let myself be happy now, then when?
If not now, when?"
Obviously it's just a co-incidence, but it's a potent lyric still worth highlighting.
|Frank Turner – Rivers Lyrics||3 years ago|
Wow, this hits home quite hard. I'm an English boy myself and while I've found places in the world which I love, I'd still lay my hat down by an English riverside.
Powerful song. It's so unique to be English, I reckon anyone who has lived in or visited England would truly understand how proud us English are.
|Bruno Mars – The Lazy Song Lyrics||3 years ago|
|Lyrically, this is like a happier version of Green Day's Longview.|

|Paper Rival – Bluebird Lyrics||3 years ago|
Yup, he mentions it here - http://www.artistdirect.com/entertainment-news/article/interview-paper-rival/4709802
"Bluebird" is a strange song. We all definitely loved it. We had all of these different ideas for it. The song came around very strangely, and we thought of it more as an art piece. We got really creative on it, and we never figured it would be a song that we'd shoot a video for. The song's about a friend of mine who murdered his parents. The video is kind of cheeky, but the song is so serious. It's similar to what we talked about with Bill Hicks. In my opinion, the video is good because you don't have to feel bad about everything. The best way of dealing with something terrible might be to laugh. That's where the video goes. You can draw some comparisons when you see the characters. You can relate what they say to the actual, real story. The video's about a Big Foot character. The director was awesome, and we had a lot of fun.
|Doves – M62 Song Lyrics||3 years ago|
|The only good things about the M62 is this song and that it connects Manchester with IKEA.|
|Daphne Loves Derby – pollen and salt Lyrics||3 years ago|
Where did you find out that? Research tells me that "Daphne Loves Derby" was impulsively blurted out by the guitarist once someone asked them what their band name was. Can't find anything about what you said..
Sorry for your loss as well.
|Necro – Creepy Crawl Lyrics||3 years ago|
|This song gives me a bright outlook on life. Necro has that effect on people, what a jolly good rapper!|
|Gym Class Heroes – Taxi Driver Lyrics||3 years ago|
|There's an English ska band called Bad Taste as well. You can add that to the list!|

Let's get drunk and freaky Fred"
|Insane Clown Posse – Miracles Lyrics||4 years ago|
|Absolutely top class interpretation. "The pyramids were built by slaves over centuries. Slavery is NOT a miracle"|
|Arctic Monkeys – Mardy Bum Lyrics||4 years ago|
Nothing I can really add to this discussion. I'm in an 8 year relationship with my now-fiancee and [more than often!] she has these moments where she's in a right mood which really irks me off, but I still remember I love her to bits and remember these laughs and jokes.
The end of the second verse sums it up -
"And I can't be arsed to carry on in this debate
That reoccurs ,oh when you say I don't care
Well of course I do, yeah I clearly do! "
|Planet Funk – The Waltz Lyrics||4 years ago|
I don't want to put a downer on this beautiful song, but this reminds me of someone quite close to me dying.
I was listening to Planet Funk's album quite a lot around the time of their death and it always brings me right back to it.
It is indeed a mesmerising song though.
|Motion City Soundtrack – @!#?@! Lyrics||4 years ago|

"Listen to your god
Shakira Waka Waka lyrics found on http://www.directlyrics.com.com/shakira-waka-waka-lyrics.html
This is our motto
Your time to shine
Dont wait in line
Y vamos por Todo"
She really pours her heart out on this verse. I sense a "Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite" situation with that web address in there!
|The Go! Team – Doing it right Lyrics||4 years ago|
|This song reminds me of celebration.|
|The Prodigy – Break And Enter Lyrics||4 years ago|
I keep thinking it's "Bring your car to work" - like Prodigy rebelling against public transport.
...probably not though.

|After 5 years of despising Pushing The Senses, I'm finally coming round to the album, especially this song. It's truly beautiful and showcases Grant's songwriting perfectly.|
|Lightspeed Champion – Dry Lips Lyrics||4 years ago|
|Love, nay treasure this song. The build up, the flute, the female vocals at the end. It's just lovely.|
|The Chemical Brothers – Out Of Control Lyrics||4 years ago|

|fun. – The Gambler Lyrics||4 years ago|
Truly a beautiful song.
"I swear when I grow up, I won't just buy you a rose.
I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely.
Even if the sun stops waking up over the fields
I will not leave, I will not leave 'till it's our time.
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side."
Although simple, that's one of the most romantic verses I've ever read. I want to race home and shout that to my girfriend right now, but I'm at work right now :-(
|Mae – The Fisherman Song (We All Need Love) Lyrics||4 years ago|
|I agree. Not since the days of Everglow have I enjoyed a Mae song so much. Mae specialise in magic and this is certainly a product of that.|
|Empire of the Sun – We Are the People Lyrics||4 years ago|
|Listening to this song just makes me want to jump on the roof of our office block and dance around in the sun.|
|Empire of the Sun – Half Mast Lyrics||4 years ago|
