"Aurora" as written by Taylor Hawkins, David Eric Grohl and Nate Mendel....
You believe there's something else
To relieve your emptiness
And you dream about yourself
And you bleed and breath the air
And its on and on and on and on and on

I just kinda died for you
You just kinda stared at me
We will always have the chance
We can do this one more time

Hell yeah, I remember aurora
Hell yeah, I remember aurora
All this time
Hell yeah, I remember aurora

Take me now
You spin the sun around
And the stars will all come out
Then we turn and come back down
Turn and come back down

You believe there's somewhere else
Where it's easier than this
And you see outside yourself
And you buy the hole you'll fill
And it's on and on and on and on and on

Hell yeah, I remember aurora
Hell yeah, I remember aurora
All this time
Hell yeah, I remember aurora

Take me now
You spin the sun around
And the stars will all come out
Then we turn and come back down
Turn and come back down
On and on and on aurora
Wait for everyone
Wait till the last one's done

Take me now
You spin the sun around
And the stars will all come out
Then we turn and come back down
Turn and come back down
Turn and come back down

On and on and on and on...

    General CommentThis is from an interview with Dave Grohl and Joe Whiley.

    JW- We might do. Can we talk a bit first? Is 'Aurora' a love song?
    DG- Yes. It's actually about when I lived in Seattle I lived right off of this street called Aurora Avenue, and I miss it.
    JW- Right.
    DG- I miss it. I miss everything about my life I had in Seattle.

    Wanna read the whole Interview?

    General CommentAurora is a street in Seattle, close to where Dave lived when he was still in Nirvana. The song is about his life there and remembering it after everything that happened to him....

    General CommentThe best part of this song is the muted bitterness, muted by desire to preserve and learn from the past.

    "I just kinda died for you,
    you just kinda stared at me..."

    The protagonist was hurt and never fully recovered. Even though there is hurt there, the good outweighs the bad, and the protagonist still looks back fondly upon the past.

    Hell yeah.

    General CommentI think it's about being in awe of someone and doing so much for them when they don't even notice or care what you're doing.

    General CommentI love this song so much. In fact it was my favorite-favorite song for about a year and I would listen to it before going to sleep every night. I think it's definitely one of the top five Foo Fighters songs. And I think it's about loving somoen so much that you're amazed by what they do to you.

    take me now, we can spin the sun around
    and the stars will all come out
    then we'll turn and come back down

    General CommentThe distortion on the guitar adds a unique effect to the song. This is probably my favorite track on "There Is Nothing Left To Lose". "Aurora" is just one of those songs which puts you in a good mood.
