"From Out Of Nowhere" as written by and Carl Cadden James Michael Baker....
Tossed into my mind, stirring the calm
You splash me with beauty and pull me down
'Cause you come from out of nowhere oh oh
My glance turns to a stare

Obsession rules me, I'm yours from the start
I know you see me, our eyes interlock
'Cause you come from out of nowhere oh oh
My glance turns to a stare

One minute here and one minute there
Don't know if I'll laugh or cry
One minute here and one minute there
And then you wave goodbye

Sifting to the bottom, every day for two
All energy funnels, all becomes you
'Cause you come from out of nowhere oh oh
My glance turns to a stare

One minute here and one minute there
Don't know if I'll laugh or cry
One minute here and one minute there
And it hurts inside

One minute here and one minute there
And then you wave goodbye (goodbye)

    General Commentje21 I like that interpretation. Although I don't see it quite as literally, I think this song is about someone passing through your life without developing a meaningful connection. Then again, someone once convinced me that Underwater Love was about an unattainable chick (say Scarlet Johanssen?) and not about drowning your love...

    Lyric CorrectionHe clearly sings "Cause you come from out of nowhere"

    So why not include the "Cause" in the lyrics?

    General CommentI think this song's about mike walkin' down the street and seeing some hot chick going the oppostie direction("you came from out of nowhere / my glance turns to a stare") and then they exchange smiles or some nonsense, and they pass each other and continue on there way..and just like that she's gone ("One minute here and one minute there
    And then you wave good-bye.."). And the whole songs kind of a musical representation of all the emotions and shit going throught this head during this short encounter.

    good song.

    General CommentApocalyptica's cover of this song is amazing. I love their work. I'm surprised that they did a Faith No More cover, they usually stick to Metallica and more mainstream bands like that. It's beautiful though.

    General CommentIt's never easy. You want her, but you can't have her.

    I think we've all been here before, haven't we guys?

    General CommentThis song is me right now. Every so often this girl I've known for a long time comes back in from out of town that has boyfriend, she cheats on him with me. We both have feelings for each other and we know it's going to come to an end when she goes back, but she lives so far away from me now that we know it's not going to work out. I could go into detail but every single line in this song I can relate to something specific that's happened between us. Strange.

    Song MeaningThis is a song about infatuation; a man frequently passes by a woman he either can't have or is too afraid to approach.
