"Identify" as written by and Corgan....
Your eyes, they send me
To eternity
Your heart may cast me down,
To hell
Again
But lately its your love,
It's condemnation enough

Identify
Please Identify
If it's me you want,
Standing by your side
Identify
These tears of mine,
Am I lonely? Or am I just alive?

And what is time, to say
Who and why the test of love,
Your hands were speaking "no"
I felt the movement go
The ice was breaking,
So
I wonder why
That I'd
Identify with you
My life
Leave me empty and see if I survive

For every questioned hour,
For every second devoured
You let me wonder you
Into a myth
That I
Missed

Identify
Please identify
If it's me you want,
Standing by your side
Identify
These tears of mine
Am I lonely? or am I just alive?
Am I lonely? or am I just alive

    General Commenti love this song! natalie imbruglias so good
    obviously everyone has their own way of deciphering a song (if that makes sense lol) but cuz' this is the Stigmata soundtrackyou can kinda see a religious thing in it - "Your eyes they send me to eternity,
    Your heart may cast me down to hell.
    I'm gone but lately it's your love,
    It's condemnation enough" or it could just be what wildchild09 said, which totally makes sense, i guess theres a lot of ways of seeing it which is what makes a good song-everyone can relate to it in some way :D
    anyhoos fab song!

    General Commentbecause of the stigmata movie, yes there are some religious references...but if you really look into the lyrics by piece, you can interpret the songs pertaining to a lost love, or shes trying to get a man's attention......notice the haunting sounds to the songs appear to have a somewhat sexy feel.....but thats just how i feel...
