"Til The Day I Die" as written by Douglas Elwin Erickson, Shirley Ann Manson, Steve W. Marker and Bryan David Vig....
You walked into the room
The sun hit my eyes
The force you struck me down caught me by surprise
You sprung the mojo and it worked like a charm
I felt invincible with you in my arms

I must confess it can feel good to feel pain
Like breaking waves or getting caught in the rain
Playing those games cause we had nothing to do
I was oblivious I was losing to you

Oh I will love you to the day that I die

Holy Jesus
Holy rock 'n roll
The more I gave to you the more you grew bored
And making love became the waging of war
No peace
No tenderness
No fun anymore

I dreamt that I called out your name
You turned your face to me and started to say
Something so beautiful it hurt deep inside
So I will love you till the day that I die

    General CommentBasic plotline: Girl meets guy. Girl falls head over heels for guy, just like he planned. They fool around, he teaches her some stuff, most likely involving sex, and meanwhile the guy is drifting further and further away emotionally without the girl realizing it. Not that he even was in love with her in the first place, but...
    Anyways, she starts noticing she's losing him and that he doesn't really care, but wont leave him because she's too emotionally attatched and believes she can change him. Which will most likely never happen.

    General Commenthum... actually, I didn't like the album "beatiful garbage" but i like song. It is true that it sounds like popmusic rather than garbage-music, but still, there is Shirley's voice... I love how she sings "holy jesus holy rock and roll"

    General CommentI hear a lot of people say, "Beautiful Garbage sounds NOTHING like their old stuff!" Okay, have you people even HEARD all of their albums? They are all different in their own way, and thats why Garbage is so fantastic. There's something for everyone.

    Anyway, this song is great. The entire album sounds best, like Bleed Like Me, LOUD AS HELL!!!

    General CommentLyrics at the end are missed off. "Farewell, farewell, I'm sure gonna leave you." Obviously sarcastic. Octoberclown's got the meaning bang on I think.
