"Rumors" as written by and Michael Kashif Jones....
I'd cross the desert to be with you.
I miss you,
I miss you.

I heard the rumors they all were true.
I need you,
I need you.

Next to me,
Next to me.

Next to me,
Next to me.

I'll take off my make-up,
I stop and listen.
I am alive now,
I watch my head spin.

I'll take off my make-up,
I stop and listen.
I am alive now,
I watch my head spin.

I'm in love with things you can't define,
And I'm in love with things you cannot buy.
All for you, the one thing I know's true.
All for you, take me in ...

Into the depths of the deepest sea.
I fought you,
I fought you.

For all I know and all I can see.
You come through,
You come through.

And all I am and all I can be.
You're callin',
You're callin'.

So here you are in front of me.
I've fallen,
I've fallen.

Round and Round, the things I can't deny,
And I'm in love with things you can't define.
All for you, the one thing I know's true.
All for you, take me in

And I walked away,
But you were always on my mind.
And I was afraid,
That you would never come alive.

There for me,
And I was scared of you.
You were there for me,
And I wasn't there for you.

    General CommentI saw Waking Ashland on friday and some kid yelled out "played 'Rumors'" and they did.. that's how I remember this song because at the time I had never heard of most Waking Ashland songs except for 'I Am For You.' I love the beginning lyrics

    General CommentThe start of this song is amazing, but a guy singing about taking off [his] makeup really got me the first time.

    General CommentThis song is amazing

    basically, to me it's about a guy that's in love with a girl (or guy, you never know) and it's a love that's not very realistic, but he knows it's love. That love pretty much made him complete when he fell for this person he's singing about. Then, I guess, he heard somthing about them that's kinda shady, or something.
    He felt like he gave a lot (the thing about crossing the desert to be with them) but it ended up them breaking his heart. He still is completely in love with this person, and everything seemed so perfect. They were there for him when he needed it. In the end, it didnt work, but he's still in love, and he still desperately needs this person.

    anyway, it's an amazing song.

    and the line is "take me and renew"

    General Commentthis is a beautiful song.. haha and KissHerBruises I dont think he was literally talking about taking off his makeup (of course I could be wrong) but I think hes using it to describe a mask, so that he can listen and be there for them.

    General Commentno no no no!! this song def. isnt about a person!! this song is about god! waking ashland is a christian band and these lyrics are totally about christianity. he says "I'm in love with things you can't define" their talkin about their religion here. when they say im in love w/ things you cannot buy they're still talkin about religion cause its not something you can buy. All for you, the one thing I know's true.
    All for you, take me in and renew... this part hes talking about jesus christ; the one thing i know's true....take me in and renew....thats what i get from this song and i think its a one of their best songs.

    General CommentDefinitely about Christ...

    'take off my makeup' -- taking off the image we've put on so the world will accept us

    "in love with things you cant define" -- God. undefineable.

    "there for me...but i wasn't there for you" -- God is always there for us, regardless of how often we turn away.

    General Commenti agree with strokes and phlp. i kinda say this from a Christian point of view but i was never sure if Waking Ashland had like a religious background or not. but what strokes and phlp said makes perfect sense, to me anyway.
