"Blown a Wish" as written by Bilinda Butcher and Kevin Shields....
Midnight wish
Blow me a kiss
I'll blow one to you
Make like this
Try to pretend it's true

Show me all your favorite things
Show you all mine too
Make a wish
I'll give it all to you
Hold on to your promises
Hold on to mine too
Caught like this
I'll turn it in with you

Fall apart my bleeding heart
Nothing left to do
Once in love
I'll be the death of you

    General CommentI have experimented with acid twice and both times I have found my self listening to the album loveless incessantly. To say the least it literally felt as though cum was dripping out of my ears while listening to this song in particular. Anyway, after such a fantastic time I felt obligated to investigate the lyrical content of MBV, in addition to throwing in my own interpretation of it as necessary.

    This song is sung from the perspective of someone hoping to hook the candy of their eye. The lyrics suggest that they would like to dive into the relationship and hold on. For some reason, perhaps from observing other relationships and previous experiences, they are certain that their desired relationship, once kindled, will be incredibly sweet for a time, long enough at least for the bond to solidify, but inevitably will become insipid.

    General CommentBilinda Butcher wrote the lyrics to this one. But I do agree that Kevin Shields is quick to say how lyrics are not so important to him, but I think a lot of us know better.

    A lot of MBV's songs seem to evolve around illusion/deception, dreams and sex.

    General Commentim in love with all of mbv's song, and this is a personal fav. With MBV, there's really not much to interpret. As soon as someone creates the MusicMeanings website, then we can dissect MBV. Kevin Shields himself said the lyrics don't mean that much in his songs (though I do think they are highly personal).

    General CommentThis is my favorite MBV song. They're the only ones who could pull off something like this.

    As far as lyrics go, most of their songs seem to be directed at some object of affection/obsession, intertwined with the elements that ooohmissy mentioned. I think the singer in this song is borderline insane for the one they are after. It's just tearing them apart
