"Followed the Waves" as written by and Melissa Auf Der Maur....
Feel me
Sneaking around again
Am I hanging around again
Can't you see
That my heart lies
My heart lies to you
I followed the waves to you
I've got to see it through
That My heart lies to you
Never have me true
(I lie I lie)
Please don't
Please don't make ammends
See me
See me slip again
Break my heart
Carve the fate
Seal the deal
My heart lies

My heart lies to you
I followed the waves to you
I've got to see it through
That my heart lies to you
You'll never have me true
I followed the waves to you
I've got to see it through
That my heart lies to you
I'll never stay with you
Between my fire sighs
And my burning eyes
My heart burns wildly in his eyes
He's just a drunken gambling man
Dealing with the hands of desires span
I'm gonna shuffle his deck clean
I'm gonna shuffle his deck clean

    General Commenti wasn't expecting her debut to sound anything like this, but I really like it. She has some really clever metaphors in here ("I’m gonna shuffle his deck clean"), and lines with terrific rhythm. This entire album screams "desiireee".

    General CommentI think this is the best song on her album. I like her sound, but I think she's got a bit of developing lyricaly to do. I'll look foreward to what she's coming up with next.

    General CommentI think this is about a guy that uses girls: "He's just a drunken, gambling man." She's saying he might think he has more power than her, but she's the stronger one.

    General CommentThis band is wicked live. CD is amazing, it will really surprise you if you're expective some post-Courtney bullshit. Brilliant lyrics - "I'm gonna shuffle his deck clean" - she always has a plan up her sleeve.

    General CommentI think the songs about a woman using a guy in the beginning for money and other things (=P) and later on she decides to 'shuffle his deck clean' or in other words, help him. So far the lyric explaining.
    I knew Melissa from the Pumpkins(hehehe) but never listened to her album (shame) but later on I saw her on the programme for Lowlands in Holland, and a few weeks later, when lowlands started, she was on a programme that was broadcasted for lowlands, and there was a bit of her show in it as well, with skin receiver and followed the waves, if I recall correctly...anyway, after I heard her songs, I was like 'ah...cool!!' and here I am...>.>

    General CommentI think it's about a guy who uses her and cheats, and he thinks she is oblivious as to what he is doing, but she knows exactly what is going on and decides to play him right back.. I love the way she sings "my heart lies, my heart lies to you."
