A little hurt
I'm alright
I'm not gonna wait for you tonight
I'd rather stay alone
I'm not gonna wait for you anymore
Kept waiting too long
I'm walking away from you tonight
You actor
I'm sure that
I'm not gonna look at you anymore
The same
Hang on
Try not to smile until you die
Patience, all the patience
I want you more than ever now

    General CommentThis is an Awesome song.
    BUT: these lyrics are the ones from the live Version

    The Original Ones are:

    "Little turn
    Alright
    I'm not gonna wait for you tonight

    Live on the stage
    I'm sure
    I'm not gonna wait for you anymore

    When you're away
    It's alright
    I'm walking away from you tonight

    Live on the Stage
    I'm sure
    I'm not gonna look at you anymore
    The same way"

    But i can't submit them. i don't know why.
    and now the song: it's great it spreads so much feelings. it is soft and gently in the beginning and then it climbs and that's the part of the song when i just sit there and say: "WHOAA!!" and every nerve in my body is elected. specially when you've done too much of Lady Mary Jane ;o). the lyrics are unbelieveable too. I think it's about getting a relationship or loosing it. not physically but in your mind: being through with that girl and knowing it. Standing over the whole thing and not beeing sad or angry anymore about what happened. What a Victory!

    General CommentThe song "Live From The Stage" is a remastered version of the original Team Sleep song "Natalie Portman." It has been speculated by fans that the song title was a reference to Natalie Portman's Lolita-esque role in the film Leon: The Professional. - Wikipedia

    General CommentIm a huge deftones fan. actually fanatic.

    i can say that chino writes his songs with meaning to himself but leaves his lyrics so ambiguous anyone can relate to them personally.

    I think the song is about being absolutely crazy about someone. Someone who is out of your league or someone you JUST DEEP down know you cant have. Your shots of hooking up with them are like hooking up with natalie portman. lol. and about finally being heartbroke at the fact you cant have them. so you say im not gonna wait on you anymore. its about letting go.

    General CommentSucks to break it to all you that relate to the lyrics up there, but those are wrong.
    These are the correct ones :

    Little tune
    Alright?
    I'm not gonna wait for you tonight
    Live from the stage
    I'm sure
    I'm not gonna wait for you anymore in new wave its alright
    I'm walking away from you tonight
    Live on the stage
    I'm sure
    I'm not gonna look at you anymore
    The same way

    General Commentthis song seems to be about someone getting messed around by his girlfriend, or an ex maybe. he says he wants to get away from her, he's fed up of waiting for her but at the same time he can't forget her and can't imagine not knowing her.

    General CommentHmmm...maybe Chino loves Natalie, but he can't have her, and he's frustrated. Or maybe the song's titled "Natalie Portman" in reference to the lyric, "you actor..." Chino is also in love with Star Wars, and we all know the world has embraced Natalie as its own Queen Amidala. I like to know the history of song titles and such...

    General Commentif these were the offical lyrics. then i would say that the song is about a couple getting in a fight, and one of them realizes that their lover is really a bitch/dick. And that they no longer need them in their life. But I don't think these are the correct lyrics... sooo... NM...
