words + guitar
i got it words + guitar
i like it
way way too loud
i got it words + guitar
i play it all i play it all
i play it words + guitar
(can't take this away from me
music is the air I breathe)

take take the noise in my head
take take the noise in my head
c'mon and turn turn it up
i wanna turn turn you on
I play it all i play it all
i play it words + guitar
(well you want it or you don't
either you'll come or you won't
it's the thing you'll never know
it's the thing you'll never own
rock you till your good and dead
rock you till there's nothing left)

i dream of quiet songs
i hear the silky sounds
hush hush and rock
oh give me pretty song
oh let me have that sound
tonight

    General CommentThe lyrics always seem like their taunting the listener with their own music:
    "it's the thing you'll never know
    it's the thing you'll never own"

    And I always wondered about the contrast of loud rock and roll to the silky, quiet songs. Maybe they want both? Maybe its meant to be a parody of how girls are only meant to play pretty songs?

    General CommentI'm with ya, amber. This is a pretty common theme in their music, the contrast between the music they play and their gender (i.e. Ballad of a Ladyman). Corin's voice is at it's best in this one. Really wish I'd gotten to see them live...
