"Eden" as written by and Alex Callier....
Did you ever think of me
As your best friend

Did I ever think of you
I'm not complaining

I never tried to feel
I never tried to feel this vibration
I never tried to reach
I never tried to reach your eden

Did I ever think of you
As my enemy

Did you ever think of me
I'm complaining

I never tried to feel
I never tried to feel this vibration
I never tried to reach
I never tried to reach your eden

    General Commenti think she just fell in love with a guy, who obviously doesn't want her as his gf. so she asks questions, how he felt about her, as a friend, as an enemy?
    &she apologizes for loving him; she never meant to love him it just accidently happened, she's probably just insecure.

    It's about regret and not giving a relationship the chance it deserved. It's about wanting more and giving less, hearing but not listening. It's about two people that might have hurt each other.

    In this song, she is admitting her part in the failed relationship- if only she had loved completely, she might have discovered his true being, she might have found her paradise as well...

    General CommentI changed my mind on this one.

    I think she's trying to casually ask what he thinks of her...and by the end she admits that yes, she really is complaining.

    winglessdreamer-- I think when she says 'i never tried to reach your eden," maybe she means that she never tried to reach that secret part of him...she never tried to get to know him fully like she probably should have.

    General CommentWhen I hear this, I picture the narrator of the song silently observing her old boyfriend. The two might have just broken or he might be at the grocery store with another woman. I feel like the lyrics are all in her mind, though, because of the phrase "Did I ever think of you, As my enemy." She's being retrospective, perhaps blaming herself for the failure of their relationship. The 'Eden' is the perfect relationship that the partner wanted, but that she kept them from.

    General CommentEden is so beautiful, this song always reminds me to that one special friend of me, who i, unfortunately, don't see that often anymore.

    He had put these first lines on a letter to me:
    "Did you ever think of me
    As your best friend
    Did I ever think of you
    I'm not complaining

    I never tried to feel
    I never tried to feel this vibration
    I never tried to reach
    I never tried to reach your eden"

    I love everything about this song. The lyrics, the melody, the voice...

    I totally went crazy when i heard her sing it live on Marktrock '04, and took my phone immediately to let that friend hear it.


    I don't think that's about a human and a plant :p

    I think it's about two persons, who are insecure about eachother. She wonders what she meant to him, what he thought about her. Did he think she was his best friend? His enemy? She said she never tried to reach his eden, eden is like heaven. But i'm not sure what they mean with saying she never tried to reach his eden... Any ideas?
