American Nightmare – Please Die! Lyrics 17 years ago
"There was a time and I swear that I fucking cared...
I got burned and now I walk with this fist in the fucking air"...my thoughts exactly. I wish I could play this song for someone. He never believed that I cared for him the same way he cared for me...well I say fuck him...American Nightmare is amazing.

Cursive – The Lament of Pretty Baby Lyrics 17 years ago
American Nightmare are amazing. What are you talking about? This song isn't sick either. You are just not reading into the lyrics. They are so symbolic of so many things. Don't take them literally. This is also very good music. Cursive don't sound like other bands. They are indie. They don't want to sound like the average band. It may not be your taste...but I believe that this site is to post what you think this song means, not your opinion about the band or whatever. From Autumn To Ashes is good, but Tool and System of a Down? One word, NO. There are a million bands that have better lyrics than both of those bands.

Cursive – The Lament of Pretty Baby Lyrics 17 years ago
Cursive is kind of post-hardcore. However, I just call them indie. If you listen to anything on Deepelm, then you would probably like them. If you're not going to post something pertaining to this song, or something positive, please don't post at all.

Cursive – The Lament of Pretty Baby Lyrics 17 years ago
God, this is a beautiful song. It is so meaningful. My interpretation of the part of the song that says, "someone, please, the moon has raped me/I can feel it inside me," is that the moon is full of light. Light equates to hope and happiness. The person in the song can feel their hope and distant happiness deep within him or herself, but it is torturing them because they are longing for something to change that seems as if it never will. They have felt the same way for so long, and it is destroying them or "raping" them. Rape is stealing something special and sacred, whatever it is has stolen away this person's happiness and innocence. This song has come to be my theme song in a way. A very depressing theme song, but it's just recaptures all of my feelings of this past year. These are extremely poetic and symbolic lyrics. EXCELLENT.

Alien-Brain – Enough Lyrics 17 years ago
"Things are bad when everything is well/Afraid to live, too scared to die." That's such a wonderful line. It's so desperate. Suicide is a tricky business. You want to, but you can't do it, then you end up feeling even worse because you CAN'T do it. This song is very depressing, but I can relate. Nice writing.

Alien-Brain – Don't Care Lyrics 17 years ago
Wow. This is amazing. I would like to sing this song to someone. Then they would know what I want to say to them. This is EXACTLY how I feel right now. kind of weird. My favorite lyrics is, "All the lies you've said/Spin through my head/breaking it open wide/all I did was care/are you even aware/Of all the nights I've cried/And I'd scream at you/But what would that do/So I'll just run and hide." This son is about wondering if it was all in vain, and wondering why they can't understand how you feel at all. It's like you're always coming back, but they will never accept you. They've ruined everything. Why can't they bend?

Alien-Brain – Demons With Halos Lyrics 17 years ago
"To look in the bright sun/see you were my demon/But I won't fade, no/I still see your halo." Great lyric. I hate that feeling of no knowing why that person completely stabbed you in the back. You still have belief that someday it will be alright again. Maybe it was real, maybe it wasn't. That halo is your hope. The hope that hides the truth. Maybe it was all in vain, maybe it wasn't. The hope that is the light it blinds you from reality. It keeps you from seeing that something will never be. After a while you can make yourself believe in anything...You find out that the person you had held up on a pedistal is something that you never though they were. They have lied...you have lied...

Bright Eyes – I Will Be Grateful for This Day Lyrics 17 years ago
This is a great song. Basically it's just remembering the past and trying to move on from it. It's rememebering, but not forgetting. Basically, he has an optimistic outlook. I think he's saying, "yeah, I f*cked up in the past, but that's okay because I learned from it and now I can make everything okay now." It's a matter of deciding that you want to be okay. It's choosing between happiness and torturing yourself with regrets. It's about loving what is now, the present, and looking forward to the future and not dwelling on the past.

Bright Eyes – June on the West Coast Lyrics 17 years ago
How can a person not love this song? This is sooooo beautiful. My second favorite song ever. "I went to Sandiego, the birthplace of the summer and I watched the ocean dance under the moon, and there was a girl I knew there, one more potential lover, I guess that something's gotta happen soon, 'cause I know that I can't keep living in this dead or dying dream and as I walked along the beach and drank with her, I thougt about my true love, the one I really need with eyes that burn so bright, they make me pure, they make me pure, they make me pure, I long to be with you..." Perfect. How does Connor Oberst do it? Such a friggin good song. The meaning is pretty obvious. Just trying to escape everything I suppose and just looking back and reflecting and realizing that you aren't really over that one person.

Bright Eyes – A Celebration Upon Completion Lyrics 17 years ago
"I guess time has a way of making everything alright, it's just there is not enough of it, so we drink and we sing and we celebrate, this lie and hope that it will last." He couldn't of said it better. That is so true.

Alien-Brain – Changing Lyrics 17 years ago
Great song. Very identifiable. I went through a break-up like this. He wanted something that I couldn't give him. He wanted me to change. Bottom line is that I tried so hard, but in the end I couldn't and I failed. I guess it goes to show that you can only live for yourself. You don't owe anything to anyone. I suppose it was kind of doomed from the start.

Alien-Brain – Bug Spray Lyrics 17 years ago
"Now you haunt my dreams/Now you haunt my nightmares" Good song. There's always this tremendous feeling of regret and guilt after a break-up. This song expresses that perfectly. You are left wondering, what is it that I did that has made you feel this way? Once you think about it, you can't blame them, but you wonder what you could do to fix it. In the end, you can't fix it. It's over. It's done.

Alien-Brain – All That I Have Lyrics 17 years ago
Wow, crap this is good. This is the second song that I've viewed. I must say that I am really impressed. These are really great lyrics. Very identifiable. A simple concept, yet the message is conveyed so well. There are times
I think of you
And all the shit that
You put me through
Sometimes I think that
It's for the best
Who am I fooling
I'm so depressed...I couldn't of said it better.

Bright Eyes – The Calendar Hung Itself . . . Lyrics 17 years ago
Does he know that place below your neck that is your favorite to be touched and does he cry
through broken sentences like I love you far too much?...I love that line...it's so beautiful just as every Bright Eyes song is. Connor is simply a lyrical genius.

Bright Eyes – I Won't Ever Be Happy Again Lyrics 17 years ago
"And an apple fell and it taught us all we are chained here to the ground." What a great song. Just about feeling lost. This song is so identifiable to me. So wonderful. Connor is a genius. There's no denieing that. "And on a grassy hill the lion will lay down with the lamb and I won't ever be lonely again. But until that time I think I had better find some disbelief to suspend, because I don't want to feel like this again."

Bright Eyes – Arienette Lyrics 17 years ago
And then the silver turns to gray so syat with me Arienette until the wolves are away...this song makes me cry. It is so beautiful. I would love to sing this song to someone that used to be a very big part of my life. His use of metaphors and symbolism in this song is amazing, "so don't leave me here with only mirrors watching me." "The wicked are vultures." Anyways, what a beautiful and meaningful song.

Cursive – Fairytales Tell Tales Lyrics 17 years ago

Alkaline Trio – Enjoy Your Day Lyrics 17 years ago
This is a beautiful song. It's so sad. It's like he knows he can't have her, so he just wants her to be happy. That's what I'm going through right now. It's really hard to just except reality and move on, but you gotta do it even though it hurts like a b*tch. :cow:

Grade – Seamless Lyrics 17 years ago
This has to be one of the most beautifully written songs. It's like he didn't wanto give in, but after a while he couldn't resist and all was lost. He wishes that he could take it all back, that everything could of been different. I think he feels guilty no, he thinks things could of been done differently. He'll always remember what happened though, and how everything got all f*cked up after that.

Planes Mistaken for Stars – Standing Still Fast Lyrics 17 years ago
You should download the song or buy their cd from www.deepelm.com
This is an amazing song. Who hasn't felt like this at some point in their lives? He wants to forget everything that is holding back, he's trying to get through it all. That person he can't forget, he's trying to forget, but it's hard, he wants them to know how he feels, he wants them to feel the pain that he feels, the regret, the hope, he wants this person to be reminded each and every day about what went wrong, and the memories that seem to never fade.

The Ataris – Just Like Heaven (The Cure cover) Lyrics 17 years ago
God, this song has some very good lyrics. They're very emotional and relatable. I like the last two stanzas. Absolutely beautiful. This is a cover, but still very good. I don't thik words can even express how I feel about this song. I love it so much.

The Ataris – Looking Back On Today Lyrics 17 years ago
I can't listen to this song anymore even though it is my favorite Ataris song. It reminds me too much of my ex. It literally makes me cry every time I hear it. When I can listen to this song again...that is when I know I am over him.

Alkaline Trio – Trouble Breathing Lyrics 17 years ago
I love this song. It is so beautiful. That's a weird word to describe it, but it is beautiful. I think he's talking to this person and they're telling him how completely miserable they are...how they can't go on. He cares for this person so much and it tears him up inside to hear this person thing about suicide. He doesn't know how to help them...he wants to, but it isn't within him. Even though he wants to rescue the person he tells them that they are going to have to get through this themselves. They have to be strong. He tells his friend not to destroy him or herself. He says this in a sarcastic manner when he says:(Don't forget to let your life rot you inside out). This is a great song. I like the line:You told me that the daylight burned you and that the sunrise was enough to kill you./I said maybe you're a vampire/you said it's quite possible I feel truly dead inside. That might be my favorite lyric from a song ever. So beautiful. The line is so desperate...I can understand the feeling behind it. Reaching out and grabbing nothing, always so close, but never close enough.

Alkaline Trio – This Is Getting Over You Lyrics 17 years ago
Yeah, I agree that would be great if you could be over someone by the time the last note was strummed in a song. This song is so great. It perfectly reflects the mood that you go into after a break-up. It's almost like you are catatonic with pain. It's like it hurts to bad to cry and if you do cry, you know that you will never be able to stop. It's a horrible feeling. You know both of you are experiencing the same amount of pain. You know it is the pain that you have inflicted. (I am the king of rain) you know that the the other person has hurt you too.(you're the queen of pain). The whole experience is a sucky one, but in the end I guess it's worth it. It's better to have lost in love than to never have loved at all.

Alkaline Trio – Sorry About That Lyrics 17 years ago
I HATE this song, but I can't help loving it. The reason I hate it so much is because every time I hear it, I burt into tears. It brings back so many memories that I'm trying to discard, but are still so fresh in my mind. It hurts to listen to this song. It reminds me exactly of my relationship with my ex-boyfrind/ex-best friend. The line: And maybe I just set aside the fact that you were broken hearted in my own special selfish way/and if I hadn't set aside the fact that you were broken hearted hell knows where your heart would be today/maybe with me. During our relationship, I had no idea how bad I was hurting him. He gave me no clue. Maybe if I would of paid a little more attention to the signals and the little things he would say, maybe the nights lying awake crying myself to sleep could of been avoided. It hurts so bad to know how much I hurt him. Now I look back on it all and I think of all the crappy things I did or said to him, and I think of how I would feel if someone treated me like that. It would suck. Now, he's been far too hurt by me to be friends again. It tears me up...but I don't blame him really. So I always will be wondering where his heart would be today.

Yaphet Kotto – Torn Pictures Lyrics 17 years ago
This is such a beautiful song. It evokes so much emotion. It's remembering everything that's gone wrong. There is no feeling to describe it. All you know is that it is gone forever, and nothing will change that, and there will always be little things that remind you of those awful times.

Third Eye Blind – Deep Inside of You Lyrics 17 years ago
It's so weird how I can relate to each and everyone of 3eb's songs. They are so amazing. Stephen writes beautiful lyrics. I like the last three verses in particular. I agree with Cool_Dandy I think what he means is that he is deep inside of her heart. The song doesn't necessarily have to be taken sexually. That would be a little too obvious. Thes lyrics are beautiful and a little more complex. You have to look closely to get the full meaning. This song is so sad...I remember a time when I couldn't relate to these broken-hearted songs.

Third Eye Blind – 1000 Julys Lyrics 17 years ago
When you left for good, I felt the drop like a boom
Wintertime all alone in your bedroom
I don't blame you, and I know I'm not your friend
How we living, young American
I guess I've always known
I'd be on my own, I'd be on my own...that has to be the best lyric in the song. This song makes me cry. It's so beautiful. I love it. So sad. It's like he's accepting all the things that he did wrong in a past relationship. He's finally coming to terms with what went wrong and his character flaws, the things he did that he can't deny now, he didn't know he was doing them at the time, he didn't know how it was affecting her. Anyways, that's exactly what I'm going through right now. Self-realization is a biotch. That's what you are
I'd tell you to come back now, but we've gone to far
And we've burned it out now
I don't even try
But I feel you gone
I've lost a thousand Julys...that's how it ends.

Third Eye Blind – God of Wine Lyrics 17 years ago
And the siren's song that is your madness
Holds a truth I can't erase
All alone on your face...that is the best line. That line basically sums up my last relationship. He was so bent on destroying himself. Not through drugs, but he was destroying himself. He was a endless sea of doubt. It was horrible. Finally everything broke down, and he realized everything that was wrong. I tried so hard for so long to be there for him and to fix things, but it completely drained me. It was horrible. So I guess I can also relate to the line, "can we get clean again?" However our relationship ended with the line, "That took you farther than you thought
You'd ever wanna go
We can't get back again
We can't get back again." Stephen writes beautiful lyrics...

Third Eye Blind – Motorcycle Drive By Lyrics 17 years ago
This song has to be the story of this year...It's quite interesting how closely I can relate to this song. Even though I don't typically listen to music like 3EB I can't resist loving them for their beautiful lyrics. My favorite line in this song is...I go home to the coast, it starts to rain, I paddle out on the water, alone, taste the salt, and taste the pain I'm not thingking of you again, summer dies and swells rise, the sun goes down in my eyes, see this rolling wave, darkly coming to take me away...so beautiful.

Third Eye Blind – Good for You Lyrics 17 years ago
This song is completely relatable to me. It's absolutely beautiful. It's like there's this guy that just wants to be there for this girl, but she won't let them in. He cares for her so much but she won't, she can't feel the same way. She is afraid of something. He is constantly thinking of her...she haunts his nights. He acts like nothing is wrong, but inside he is dieing. He can't let go, he never gives up hope that one day this girl will let him be there for her again. This is what i'm feeling right now, exactly except switch the girl and the guy around. This is one of the saddest songs I've heard in quite awhile.

Dashboard Confessional – Hands Down Lyrics 17 years ago
This song has to be the best song EVER. Chris Carraba IS a lyrical genious. How does the guy come up with this stuff? It's such a frickin' good song. It reminds me of all the times that I spent with my ex. I was having a really hard time getting over him and going on, but then I heard this song. It helped me to remember all the good times that we had and changed my point of view. It turned my regretful mood into one in which I'm just happy about the time I shared with him. I'm not sad it's over, I'm glad that it happened. It's almost as if Chris is reading a page out of my life. It's freaky, but anyways, this song is AMAZING!!!
