"Wheels" as written by and Mark Lanegan....
Light ahead, proves that the wheels broke down
Here I am, still hangin' on
Well alright
Shadows only disappear
Just look around there's no one here
A little spirit turned my light on out and now
Can never be no doubt
You got to walk in the morning sun
And got to smile at everyone
Go my love on your way, to bigger and
Bright better days
And I'll go crazy for it all
And I won't stop lovin' you baby
Oh yeah here I am
This feeling inside a body
Light ahead, proves that the wheels broke down
Here I am, still spinnin' round
Shadows only disappear
Just look around there's no one here
A little spirit turned my light on out and now
Can never be no doubt
I'm gonna wait til the stars come down
My little love smiles on a wing
For all a raindrop and tears not wasted there
Been pourin' down all day
Runnin' round catchin' 'em baby
Run around catchin' 'em baby
Whichever way they fall
Won't stop lovin' you baby
Whichever way you go
Oh yeah
Here I am
Here I am
Just runnin' round catchin' 'em
Whichever way they fall
All night long

    General CommentThis is my favorite Lanegan song, and one of my favorite songs of all time.


    To me this song is about loving someone to the extent that, regardless of the obstacles, you believe you will unconditionally love him or her. You are so devoted to this person that you are willing to disregard the negatives; you choose to do anything for another person even if that select person does not realize how loyal you are and how much you love him/her. Whichever way that person goes, you will be open and will not put your guard up even if she does not realize that you would go to that extent for her.

    You cannot suppress your feelings and you are putting yourself on the line but it's worth it...

    I am listening to this song tonight because I can identify with it completely. I turn to this song both when I am feeling low and when I have never felt better because it encompasses both the elation of being in love and the difficulties. It's a perfect song.

    General CommentTo me, this is a song about unconditional, unrequited love. A man is so devotedly and helplessly in love with someone that he will continue to love them far after they've gone and forgotten about him--even though it tears him apart. I get the feeling that this person is no longer in his life and it's killing him to love her but he does it anyway. Sounds like he can't help it and even wants it this way.

    such a great song. I am amazed at Lanegan's ability to capture the most intense emotions/situations and articulate them so thoroughly and beautifully. gahh I love him!!
