"Melt" as written by Melanie Chisholm and Guy ...
Caught in the eye of a storm
Where we are born
No truth is spoken

Seems so long ago
And you really don´t know
How you got broken

Feel me
Give a little bit of love for your people
But save a little bit of love for yourself
Have a little bit of trust in the way you feel
And see your heart melt

Send a little bit of hope down the airwaves
Find a little bit of gold in my hell
You´ve got to have a little bit of faith in everything you know
Then let your heart melt

Now is your time to rise
The one you can fly
I know why you sent me

Feel me
Give a little bit of love for your people
But save a little bit of love for yourself
Have a little bit of trust in the way you feel
And see your heart melt

Send a little bit of hope down the airwaves
Find a little bit of gold in my hell
You´ve got to have a little bit of faith in everything you do
Then watch you heart
Feel your heart melt

Send a little bit of hope down the airwaves
Find a little bit of gold in my hell
You´ve got to have a little bit of faith in everything you know
Then let your heart
Feel your heart melt

    General Comment"The eye of the storm" is a small peaceful area in the middle of a cyclone where there is no wind, just like that safe haven of our early childhood when we are still unaware of the "storm" raging outside (i. e. we are not told the truth of what the world is really like). But as soon as we tentatively pop our little noses out of this protected area we experience the clash with a harsh reality and its hardships (or atrocities, if you will), and some of us "get broken" in the process. Then again, "broken" might refer to someone who was physically or sexually abused as a child, but this is a risky path of interpretation which I am reluctant to follow right now.
    Melanie is possibly singing this as a positive message of hope aimed at a fellow musician or a performer (after all, "airwaves" are referenced), maybe even at one of her former bandmates from The Spice Girls who is embarking on a solo career ("Now is your time to rise"). She advises them to establish a balance of giving and taking and, while using the music as a medium of sending hope, to be a little selfish as well and make some money for themselves (at least that's how I understand the "Find a little bit of gold" line). She appeals to them to open their heart and render it "meltable", to break out of the shell and become more susceptible to emotions and build their confidence at the same time. This being only my own take on the song, lines like "I know why you sent me" and "Feel me" remain unclear to me (the former seems almost like a part of a prayer). Still, I just may be closer to the point than smellyspice.
    This is my favorite song off "Reason", so melancholic and dramatic and hopeful and warm all at once, with a sweeping, anthemic chorus and a wonderful guitar solo to boot.

    General Commenti meant fooling instead of feeling, but i bet she wouldn't mind being felt with a middle finger up her ass

    General Comment"Now is your time to rise
    Go on you can fly
    I know why you sent me
    Feel Me"

    if Male C is trying to tell us that she wants her man's erection to rise for her then she is not feeling us sorry to say
