Julia Michaels – Issues Lyrics 26 days ago
@[sophia2065:21353] To me it sounds like that line "But you're perfect, poorly wired circuit" means that though the other person is not technically perfect (he's not "wired" correctly) he's still perfect to her regardless. Kind of sums up the whole song really.

Khalid – Location Lyrics 1 month ago
In an interview with Pigeons & Planes, Khalid said about this song:
"‘Location’ is a story of young love. The kind of love that you would travel all over the country to find. It’s just a story of searching for something that we all want in life no matter who we are and that’s a real genuine lover, but it doesn’t come easy."

PVRIS – Heaven Lyrics 2 months ago
The album title is All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell - this is from an Emily Dickerson poem:

My life closed twice before its close;
It yet remains to see
If Immortality unveil
A third event to me,

So huge, so hopeless to conceive,
As these that twice befell.
Parting is all we know of heaven,
And all we need of hell.

Harry Styles – Sign of the Times Lyrics 2 months ago
@[Robertbatemanart:19840] It was an interview in Rolling Stone, here's the relevant quote:
"'Sign of the Times' came from 'This isn't the first time we've been in a hard time, and it's not going to be the last time.' The song is written from a point of view as if a mother was giving birth to a child and there's a complication. The mother is told, 'The child is fine, but you're not going to make it.' The mother has five minutes to tell the child, 'Go forth and conquer.'"

Chance the Rapper – Everything's Good (Good Ass Outro) Lyrics 5 months ago
From Chance himself, during his Reddit AMA:
"With as much thought and hesitation allowed to me at the moment, I’d blindly resort to throwing Everything’s Good (Good Ass Outro) out as my most important track to date. Acid Rap’s intro is The Thesis of my album, as well as my own introduction to you as a listener. Kind of like the foreword in a book, in third person. It took me so long, after beginning the process of recording and creating of the project, to write an ending to the album. About 3 ½ weeks before the tape dropped I wrote and recorded Everything’s Good, which I knew from the first time I heard it would be the outro. During the session my Dad called me to apologize about a laptop he had told me he’d buy me awhile back. The laptop wasn’t really a big deal to me then, but my Dad has always been one to give provocative and loving speeches via random, sporadic phone calls. So I listened. About a minute into the call i got teary eyed and started really listening to him and the conviction in his voice. I could hear my Dad speaking in this calm and fulfilled voice about his pride in what I’m doing and his pure love of my success. And that was it. everything was good."

The Good Life – Midnight Is Upon Us Lyrics 1 year ago
According to Tim himself:
"We put the mastering folks through a minor hell, trying to get the closing second of the album to pair up seamlessly with the opening track, again, to create the loop, to feel as though the album has no beginning or end (but you gotta play it on repeat!). We also had the grand plan of creating one of those closed threads at the end of the vinyl version, so that the final rhythm of the song would play on indefinitely. Alas, we didn’t do sufficient planning in advance, the measures of the song didn’t line up properly with the length of the proposed closed thread."

The Good Life – How Small We Are Lyrics 1 year ago
According to Tim himself:
"There are some fun additional elements to this arrangement, including the age-old reverse-vocal move(!) and oversaturated electronic drums set on a delay that crash through the background of the track. They remind me of meteors crashing to Earth—give it a try!

This is a bit of a sister song to “Diving Bell” in lyrical content, but without the booze."

The Good Life – Diving Bell Lyrics 1 year ago
According to Tim himself:
"Certainly the more (most?) surrealist of tracks on the record, it concerns a gentleman getting too tipsy among a group of peers at a bar, only to drift off into a sort of netherworld where he questions the possibility of another self on another planet doing the same thing."

The Good Life – Happy Hour Lyrics 1 year ago
According to Tim himself:
"A break in the album, this is “Midnight Is Upon Us” filtered through Ryan Fox’s brain. I called it “Happy Hour” as a loose nod to “Holy Shit” on the first half of the record and to “Diving Bell” which it leads into, both songs about drinking and questioning existence. It can be a dangerous cocktail, children!"

The Good Life – Forever Coming Down Lyrics 1 year ago
According to Tim himself:
"This was one of the first songs written for the album and helped set a tone for the style we wanted to capture. This song is very 120 Minutes to me (that’s Subterranean to you younger kids) (That’s… YouTubing alternative band videos?!?! to you much younger kids). This song’s lyrics also works as the main template for the amazing artwork illustrated by Dan Black."

The Good Life – Flotsam Locked Into a Groove Lyrics 1 year ago
According to Tim himself:
"The rare occasion where the Good Life “locks into a groove”! It’s fairly atypical of my writing style, which makes it all the more interesting to me when a song such as this actually makes it onto an album. This also seems like one of those “cool songs” to me, another thing the Good Life doesn’t do very often (nor me)!"

submissions
The Good Life – Holy Shit Lyrics 1 year ago
According to Tim himself:
"These lyrics were originally, “Oh my God” instead of “Holy shit,” but that had felt a bit played out, so I went with something a little… less played out? Or, more simply, I like the sentiment of crying out, “Holy shit” a lot more than “Oh my God.”

I recall this song going through a few different compositions and a lot of indecision before landing on this final version. Funny, all that hemming and hawing over a song that clocks in at 1:49."

The Good Life – The Troubadour's Green Room Lyrics 1 year ago
According to Tim himself:
"I’m quite proud of this song; from its initial conception to eventual completion, all the pieces seemed to fall in place. Each band member offers just the right instrumentation, and the production suits the song well.

I recently did an interview asking if I was jaded about the music industry, based on the lyrics of this song—vehemently disagreeing, I attempted to explain the difference between cynicism and being jaded. By the end of my discourse, I’m certain I only sounded more jaded. Ha. (I still insist I’m not jaded, just a consummate cynic!)"
