"Soothe" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Hungry, hungry again
Hungry, hungry again
When will it start to sway
When will it start to almost break you
Hungry, hungry again
Hungry, hungry again

I'll miss you
And I wish you luck
Well, I forgive you
And I don't wish you away, away, away
It'll almost break you
Almost take you
Almost break you
Almost break you up

    General CommentAn abusive relationship- manipulative, codependent, destructive. They ended it. It was never really over. He's hurt her, he's hurt her so many times...but she goes back. She's hungry for him again. Hungry for familiarity. Hungry for his neediness. He's hungry for her again. Hungry for a remembrance. Hungry for an escape. She convinced he's what's wrong with her. When will she start to sway? When will her entire being start to sway toward his direction? And when will the cycle begin again- that which almost breaks her? And they can't call it a mistake. They miss it when its gone. "I wish you the best in all you attempt..." She's secretly so glad this happened. And now hes gone. She knows this almost broke her. She'll almost take him back. He almost broke her. They'll be back to break each other up. ...cycle goes on...

    Song MeaningThis song is in no way about the keyboardist death to heroin. It was recorded well before that tragedy occurred. Love how some people assume they know everything lol.. And I agree with many that it really sounds like he's saying 'Hold me..' I have never heard the word hungry in this song..

    General Commenti always thought that he was singing "hold me, hold me again" this is an awesome song, listening ot it feels like driving alone in the rain at 3 in the morning. It's my understanding that this was recorded in a make shit stufy, like an aparement or something. at one point during the song, you can hear a turck or something driving outside. so yeah, uhm... good song!

    General Commenti'm not sure if it's "hold me, hold me again" or "hungry, hungry again". i've listened to it a few times... could be either.

    i'll take a peek at a few fan sites to get an idea what they think.

    General CommentI believe that it's "hungry" but anyhow the song is so great. Billy's use of the word "almost" in the song drives my emotions insane, its beautiful.
