"Give Me Something" as written by and Daniel Bemrose....
I carved your name
In an old, old tree,
But the council chopped it down
Because it was filled with disease.

And I sent you a thousand messages,
But not a single one got through

Please,
Give me something;
Something to hold on to.
Give me something,
That links me to you.
Give me something;
Something to hold on to,
And I'll wear your wedding ring for a lifetime.

I've seen a place
Where your fingers lock with mine.
But the view it disappeared,
As my alarm clock hit the time.

And I've made a million wishes now,
But not a single one?s come true

Please,
Give me something;
Something to hold on to.
Give me something,
That links me to you.
Give me something;
Something to hold on to,
And I'll wear your wedding ring for a lifetime.

Please,
Give me something;
Something to hold on to.
Give me something,
That links me to you.

Give me something;
Something to hold on to.
Give me something,
That links me to you.

Give me something
Give me something
Give me something
Give me something

    General CommentTheir EP came out today! :) I'm listening to this song right now...
    As far as the lyrics go, I think it's pretty self explanatory. It's a fairly simple song, but a gorgeous one at that.
    I love the metaphor in the first couple of lines. It's very striking. I think a lot of people can relate to this song; it's the common feeling of just wanting to be connected to someone. I love it.

    General CommentFirst of all, I love every song I've heard from this band so far.

    This song in particular seems to be about a widower, evidenced by the line: "I'll wear your wedding ring for a lifetime." It makes the metaphor about the old oak tree even more poignant, that he thought their love would last forever but didn't count on her getting sick and dying. It's very sad.

    My favorite line is in the second verse: "the view it disappeared as my alarm clock hit the time." indicating that she haunts his dreams.

    "Give me something" takes on a grasping-out-at-straws meaning, though I'm not sure what he's expecting (maybe he doesn't either). Yes, he is definitely longing for connection. I can't say he has much hope. Again, very sad.

    But all these feelings have to go somewhere I suppose...
