"Eden" as written by and Alex / Callier....
Did you ever think of me,
As your best friend.
Did I ever think of you,
I'm not complaining.

I never tried to feel.
I never tried to feel.
This vibration.
I never tried to reach.
I never tried to reach.
Your Eden.

(Your Eden, your Eden.)

Did I ever think of you,
As my enemy.
Did you ever think of me,
I'm complaining.

I never tried to feel.
I never tried to feel.
This vibration.
I never tried to reach.
I never tried to reach.
Your Eden.

(Your Eden, your Eden.)

I never tried to feel.
I never tried to
(Your Eden.)

    General CommentI get the feeling that this song is about an uncommunicative relationship, where she feels as though her partner has never really acknowledged her, but at the same time, she feels as though she hasn't done the same for him.

    General CommentI just LOVE the beginning of this song. The male choir sounds to me like monks singing, but that's not a bad thing. It's really cool to me. I love this song.

    General CommentLOL! I'm not sure, but I always picture monks singing for this song, which seems really appropriate to me for some reason...so cool...
    To me, it's basically about one's vision of a perfect world, or Eden, and how it strongly contrasts to someone else's vision and how it creates struggle and misunderstanding...etc. Seems simple but it makes sense...
    Anyways, I adore this song--makes me cry...

    General CommentThis song sends shivers down my spine. You can't make someone love you, is what both Hooverphonic, and Sarah are both getting at here. It's my song.

    General CommentSo beautiful. My mom got a tape years ago of some of Sarah's greatest hits and I immediately fell in love with this one. I always imagine navy blues and deep greens when I listen to this. The song is so rich and full of feeling. When she sings of never having tried to feel, I guess she means that she's fallen in love with someone now. She may have known the person for years, but now she's reaching for Eden - his very being - for the first time. I think this is such a great cover.

    General CommentI love this song and it brings back a lot of memories from 2004. I think of only one person with it. I've never truly tried to pick apart the lyrics.

    I just think of it having to do with love and sadness.

    General CommentIt seems like two people almost were connected to each other, almost understood each other, but the distance between them, emotionally speaking, was too great.
