"Eclipse (All Yours)" as written by and Howard Shore James Shaw....
All the lives always tempted to trade
Will they hate me for all the choices I've made
Will they stop when they see me again?
I can't stop now I know who I am

Now I'm all yours, I'm not afraid
I'm yours always anekatips say what they may
And all your love I'll take to a grave
And all my life starts now

Tear me down they can take you out of my thoughts
Under every scar there's a battle I've lost
Will they stop when they see us again?
I can't stop now I know who I am

Now I'm all yours, I'm not afraid
I'm yours always, say what they may
And all your love I'll take to a grave
And all my life starts

Now I'm all yours, I'm not afraid
I'm yours always say what they may
And all your love I'll take to a grave
And all my life starts now.

    My OpinionMetric fans, I beg to differ with your concerns! You should rejoice in this song!!

    It isn't simplistic; it's just beautifully simple. It’s all too easy to write pretentiously impenetrable lyrics, but a real skill to write straightforwardly with panache.

    And what's more, you now own the definitive Twilight song! Just as Stephenie Meyer has delighted her fans with a complex story simply told, so too has your band conjured clarity from a whirl of emotions — and the opening verse alone contains enough literary technique to signal genuine lyrical ability.

    But most importantly, this song will lead people to the delights of Metric. I knew nothing of them until I encountered this Eclipse flag-bearer. I also happened to catch the video, which prefaces the core song with a vignette of Emily toying with her pad and pen as she refines the lyrics — a giveaway that whilst the band is up for a bit of vampire fun, it’s still (un)deadly serious about what it says.

    As a result I took a risk and, more in hope than expectation, I bought Fantasies. After about three plays, my life was enriched and Metric had itself another admirer! And in the context of ‘Gimme Sympathy’ and ‘Sick Muse’, this song sits very comfortably in the evolving Metric canon.

    So let's just laud this song for what it is: an unfussy, quality companion to a modern-day classic novel.

    General Commenti've listened to this quite a bit, thanks to the eclipse soundtrack
    the sound is marvelous and makes me think of being in absolute bliss with someone
    the lyrics seem as if its talking about not being scared to be with someone
    even through all the rumors, just loving them and being with them until death

    at least that's how i see it :/

    General Commenti absolutely agree with idance5678
    it perfectly fits to the whole twilight saga
    for me it sounds like the song is written out of bella's point of view
    just to clarify it a bit for those who are not so familiar with the story:

    other lives always tempted to trade... bella's biggest wish is to become a vampire and she would do everything to get changed. it also reminds me a bit of rosalie's life because she never wanted to be a vampire and would have done everything to have the choice between a human life and a life as a vampire

    Will they hate me for all the choices I made... especially this is related to jacob because bella is afraid of loosing him because he is against her becoming a vampire

    Will they stop when they see me again... again she wonders what other people will think of her when she's a vampire

    I can't stop now I know who I am... she's absolutely sure that she wants to be a vampire and that this is the best life for her

    Now I'm all yours, you're all mine... shows her endless love for edward and his love for her

    and all my life starts now... her second life, the life as a vampire with edward, starts when she becomes a vampire, which is now

    They can't take you out of my thoughts... again this shows her love towards edward

    Under every scar there's a battle I've lost... she can't start a new life without losses which is that she can't see her family and friends again. it could also refer to the battle with james in twilight from which she has her scar

    General CommentI love this song, especially, as its sounds like its in a sort of wierd key. The lead singer has a beautiful voice.

    This song sounds like someone is very very in love, but other people (maybe her friends or family) really don't like the relationship and criticise it,

    "Will they hate me for
    all the choices I made."

    But she is faithful, and in love with the other person who is in turn in love with her,

    "Now I'm all yours,
    I'm not afraid,
    And you're all mine."

    Basically, Its Just a song, about two lovers, who are being shunned by their friends and family, because their relationship is maybe convtroversial. But they don't care because they have each other.

    But that's just my interpretation.

    Feel free to correct me, or come up with some more interesting theories.

    Nice song though. :) .

    Song Meaningi strongly believe that this is the perfect song for the story of the entire twilight saga.
    other lives always tempted to change- werewolf or vampire?
    will they hate me for all the choices i made- will her family or jacob approve of this new life?
    will they stop when they see me again- will my family or others think that there is something wrong?
    i can't stop now i know who i am- i have to go through with this whole vampire thing because its my destiny

    General CommentI've been a fan of Metric since Old World Underground and have loved everything Emily Haines (the singer) has done on her own. I actually thought and hoped Fantasies was the record to break them into the mainstream because it just a great record with great tunes and was more of an evolution in their sound rather than a deviation made to pander to a mass audience. With that said, this song DOES NOT sound like Metric. I hope they have all the success in the world, and their last record should've been that success since it fits in quite nicely into the current marketplace but I cannot in good conscience endorse this son. It is simply a deviation to appeal to a mass audience instead of just a natural step in the evolutionary process of their sound.

    General CommentIt doesn't surprise me that actual fans of Metric don't really want to comment on this song. I agree with the post above, this is definitely NOT the true sound of Metric. From the straightforward lyrics and the simple melody to the overuse of Emily Haines's high-pitch vocals (which isn't such a bad thing), this is practically the antithesis of Metric's music. Sure, their usual lyrics might sometimes turn out vague, but they play better rock melodies than the ones in this song, and Emily's great vocals could be put to better use than just for this kind of sappy love song.

    My OpinionI agree with the last two posters. I think it's a bit overproduced compared to Metric's other work, and Emily's normally abstract, thoughtful lyrics are oddly...bland. Like urielzet said, really straightforward. Don't get me wrong, this song isn't terrible or even bad -- but Metric can do so much better, and they're getting a lot of their recognition for this as opposed to their better work...

    General CommentI just want to start off by saying that I am a definite Metric fan. I love Metric, Soft Skeleton and I even have this CD that Emily Haines produced when she was in college with Amy Miller, awesome stuff. It's quite visible that there aren't as many Metric fans raving about this song as they did their other stuff. We were much more active in writing about Metric's music encountered on their actual albums rather than this soundtrack and I think it's obvious why. This song is very straight forward. No interpretation is needed. What I do want to say about it, is that I love it because this is the song that will make people realize that they have so many other great songs. I don't feel that Metric completely changed who they are to put this song out. I feel that maybe they just wanted to be involved in this soundtrack, maybe they're "Twilight" fans, you never know, and wanted to put something out there that related to this movie, I don't know. One thing is clear though, they couldn't have put lyrics like the ones found in "Hustle Rose" or "Grow up and blow away" on this song, the new audience they would be playing to wouldn't be used to it and wouldn't get and maybe even skip over it. It feels like maybe they're just making themselves a little easier to relate. All I know is that when this soundtrack came out I looked at my girlfriend and told her how happy I was that this CD is going to sell so much just because of the movie and from it, more and more people will be introduced to Metric. They are an amazing band and deserve to be recognized as such, also more money going their way means more resources to put out more wonderful music to keep fans like myself happy. Sorry for how long this is, I don't think I know how to write short paragraphs.
