"Tongue Tied" as written by and William H. Martin....
Last night I dreamt that you were dead
The only way that I could find
To clear you from my head
I find it hard for me
To get past all the shit you did to me
In spite, at night, I try in vain
To get my mind back right

Tongue-tied
I feel so terrified
I'm so sick of being on my own
(This feels like suicide)
Tongue-tied
I feel so dead inside
Struggling in a world I can't control
(This feels like suicide)

Some things are better left alone
Completely out of sight and mind
Never to be told
I find it harder to express
The things that no one else can see
But me, sometimes, I wait for days
To get my mind back right

Some say waiting
Taking my own time is all I can do
Should've known you'd things to hide
By the look in your eyes
I can hear the words loud
(And now I finally understand this feeling of
uncertainty that leaves me now)

    General CommentNever Finally understand... or perhaps Now I finally understand...?
    Just my opinion, I think this songs about having just broken up with a girl or having troubles with one, he refers to not being able to get her out of his head. I think he says tongue tied because he can't say what he wants to say to the girl *shrugs* just my interpretation. Excellent song though.

    General Commenti think its pretty obvious that he is very dependent on relationships..

    "Tongue tied
    I feel so dead inside
    I’m so sick of being on my own
    This feels like suicide
    Tongue tied
    I feel so dead inside
    Struggling in a world
    That can’t control
    This feels like suicide"

    General CommentThis is such an awesome song. I love it. I think he's talking about how he can't get over a girl, and that not being with her is tearing him apart.

    General CommentAs with anything, the interpretation of songs is, at least to some extent, all in the head of the interpreter. When I hear this song, I hear a person whose situation is out of his hands and is being separated from another person in a relationship by some third party, despite his own wishes (but at least partially due to some action of his own), and as much as he wants and needs to talk about it, he is forced to keep it to himself. This describes my situation and applies to me. I dunno why I'd share this, but, uh... I suppose it could have something to do with the fact that I'm forced to keep my mouth shut about my situation so SongMeanings is the closest I can get to letting everything go and venting the pressurized feelings. Heh.
