"Every Moment" as written by and Jimmy Thompson....
every moment that you're here
i feel lashes on my ear
subtle difference disappears

i used to think about
you and me forever
improper medicine for you and me together
do you want to shoulder this weather?
i'm inspired by the things that upset her
you're no measure

every mormon and every saint
let out the ashes, uproot the graves
a million fallen, in a million ways

i used to think about
you and me forever
improper medicine for you and me together
do you want to do this forever?
i'm inspired by the things that upset her
this is how men are measured

every moment

    General Commentthis song is about that delicate balance in every relationship when things are going wrong and it seems like it's time to abandon ship, but you know if you worked at it there is a chance you could save it. it's all about being fucked enough to do something. not everyone is, especially if you take secret pleasure at the things that upset the other person.

    General CommentI love Rogue wave.

    I think this song is about when you come to one of those points a relationship where youve got to decide if it's worth it or not, like you either both decide you want to be together and are going to work at it, or you both decide it's time to just let it end.

    Then again that could just be cause I was at oneof those points when I first heard this song haha

    General CommentI think this song is sweet. The line, "I'm inspired by the things that upset her" sounds like me. Exept "him" not "her"

    General Commenti'm not sure if he is inspired that these things upset her, or if they have conflicts in the things that inspire each of them.

    General CommentIt sounds like he's sort of ambitious.. he's dreaming of marriage and getting ahead of himself, when all he really wants is to just be "together".

    General CommentHe's having an affair, and he's asking whether the person he's having the affair with wants to keep doing it to his wife.

    General CommentIt's about process philosophy reconciling scientific naturalism and religion. According to whitehead, every moment has intrinsic value, contributes to the future of other beings in the universe, and contributes to the life of god, hence the mormon reference. .... just kidding, sorry, I'm bored and studying. when i heard this in class though, the 'every moment' part, all i could think about for the rest of the time was this song. saw them in concert -- best live performance/sound i've ever experienced.

    General Commentyea i definitely agree noodles and paul banks about what this means. its like, should we put up with this and should i still be happy when she's upset? or is that a sign that it should be over.
