"Body" as written by and Gavin Rossdale....
Hush child, lay your sweet lips on me
This greed, bigger than you and me
Will you come again
Body
Tongue tied and a visceral third degree
Feel warm, center of gravity
Wash us all away
Body never lies
Will you come again
Will we stay friends
Oh you paralyze
There are times when I wish
That I was you
Thick skinned, cities you drive me through
Better than me, you're a woman
Seven days and my system is free again
We rise, lose it on oblivion
Falling away, sorry for the way
Your child is on fire
Lick these my ruby lips
Drop your protein pills
Better just to lose yourself
We kiss we kiss we kiss
Pretty words could never say
Will you come again

    General CommentDUDE. HOW CAN NOBODY HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT THIS SONG!!!! This is my second faverote bush song, the other being cold contagious. What the fuck!. anyway... i absoultly love this song with a passion. It's just so powerful. the way it takes you on a rollercoaster. Ups and downs. It rocks, then it makes you wanna cry. i think Its' just about the feelings he feels for a girl and everything she puts him through, physical and emotional. And despite everything he wants to always stay friends. Its creepy how i can realte. this song just touches me. Great song. Rocks

    General CommentThis really is a great song. I loved the line 'Your child is on fire'. Don't know what it's supposed to mean.. but it's just a bold lyric!

    General Commenti love this song. it's one of my favorite bush tracks just b/c of the feeling of the song... sometimes it's so hard to just be friends with someone... b/c a purely platonic relationship btwn. a guy and a girl is so hard to achieve. and this song conveys that. beautiful.

    General CommentHe is definately talking on many levels about his sexual relationship w/ a chick. " Hush child - lay your sweet lips on me
    This greed - bigger than you and me
    Will you come again " have u ever wanted someone that bad? u cannot control your desire (greed).
    "Tongue tied and a visceral third degree
    Feel warm - center of gravity" tongie-tied (french kissing or speechless from your desire) visceral is your vein system-when u get sexually excited your veins swell(down there-men & women) that is how men get a hard-on and "center of gravity" is her g-spot! "wash us all away-body never lies" you can't hide an orgasm. Your body will always give away how you feel. u can't hide your true physical desires and responses to another person. "Will you come again
    Will we stay friends " ok, he knows they have to be together cause they cannot deny what they feel, but he is worried it will screw everything else up. will they be friends still after they have each other or will it be awkward forever after?" There are times when I wish
    That I was you
    Thick skinned- cities you drive me through
    Better than me - you're a woman " he thinks somehow that he feels more pain than she does, that she can easily put their time together past her, possibly to be w/someone else without looking back or remembering him-thinks somehow, she is stronger (emotionally) b/c she is a woman. He must have had a mother that was there for him emotionally and/or that he saw as being "stonger" emotionally than others in his life. "Seven days and my system is free again
    We rise - lose it on oblivion
    Falling away - sorry for the way
    Your child is on fire
    Lick these my ruby lips
    Drop your protein pills " ok-this may be far-fetched, but somehow I think he is talking about a woman's cycle-during certain times the "protein pills"- sperm-is "lost on oblivion"-get shot "out there" to never become anything. Or "lick these my ruby lips" he is going down on her and she cums dropping her protein pills-anyway, in the end he says it is just better to "lose yourself" totally enjoy and give into the moment. The feeling you have after that...the kissing...etc. could never fully be explained even with "pretty words".

    General CommentThis is one of the most sexual songs ever! I think High Way was closest on this one. Almost 90% of this song could be seen as an allusion to oral sex. I dunno, maybe I just have a dirty mind...but "will you come again"? ;-)
