"Spoon" as written by and Yuka Honda Miho Hatori....
Though the water boils,
Don't turn off the heat
Can't find the spoon that we once had,
The sugar cubes will melt no more

We belong as two together,
We belong as two together

How can you take my soul?
Stop, I need a new beat
Can't find the spoon that we once had,
The sugar cubes will melt no more

We belong as two together,
We belong as two together

    General CommentI think it's about love using food as a metaphor, but your interpretation is very interesting.

    General CommentI agree with you, dd59714. Cibo Matto is my favorite band and the often use food as a metphor for love. I believe this song is about a relationship on the rocks. When a relationship begins, everything seems to go exceedingly well... tiny quarrells dissolve like sugar in water. In this song, it takes much more work to "melt that sugar", in fact, the water must exceed a boilig temperature. The love that acted as a catalyst in the beginning is lost. It's as difficult for their relationship to continue as it is to dissolve sugar cubes in cold water without a spoon, but they still belong together.... (that last sentance was awkward but you get the idea)

    General Commentwow.

    not sure if I like listening to these poppy songs about food when they have such logical deep meanings...

    it scare me.

    General Commentabsinthe -- put a sugar cube on a perforated spoon, drip water onto the sugar cube so that it mixes into it to make it tolerable. a good metaphor if that were the intent.
