"Black Hole" as written by and Zooey Deschanel....
My eyes are so bleary
I guess I'm young
But I feel so weary

I've tried to express it
But I think it's all a bore
It's at the heart of me
A very part of me

Speak slowly, I can't hear you
My mind keeps spinning closer and closer
To the rain on the roof
And the rain in my head
And the things that you said
Keep on taking further ahead

And it just gets so foggy
It's nowhere in here
And it's everywhere else
That I don't want to be

But I'm stuck here
Getting misty over you
I'm alone on a bicycle for two

Speak slowly, I can't hear you
My mind keeps spinning closer and closer
To the rain on the roof
And the rain in my head
And the things that you said
Keep on taking further ahead

And it just gets so foggy
It's nowhere in here
And it's everywhere else
That I don't want to be

But I'm stuck here
Getting misty over you
I'm alone on a bicycle for two

    General CommentFirst I'd like to say that this song is a total throw-back to the 50's, early 60's. I say that in the best way possible.

    This song is about someone who doesn't feel quite right about their relationship. When they try to mention it, it doesn't quite seem legit, almost like it's not worth it because they have no real reason for complaining ("I guess I'm young but I feel so weary," I've tried to express it, but I think it's all a bore"). They feel alone in the relationship ("I'm alone on a bicycle for two").

    My InterpretationThis song is about feeling as if you have all the potential and all the things it takes to not feel alone but you still do.

    General CommentI love this song, its adorable! I think this song is about feeling inadiquate in a relationship, always second guessing yourself and what you do. Like she is over analizing everything so mucht that its becoming mixed up and foggy in her head, its taking a toll on her. xxsheandhimxx I totally feel the same about this song :)

    General CommentIt's funny how you bend lyrics in your head to fit your own interpretation. Instead of keep on taking further ahead, I always heard "people take it further ahead".
