Pearl Jam – Breath Lyrics 12 years ago
TommyCap- Singles was a GREAT movie. "When I was younger I thought by the time I hit 21, I'd have travelled the world, be married with three kids. Now that I'm 23, things are pretty much.......the same." how true.

Dave Matthews Band – Grey Street (Busted Stuff version) Lyrics 13 years ago
Song describes me to a T. It's actually pretty sick.

I think the whole idea of the song, how she lives at the end of the world, is how she has this other voice inside her telling her to leave things behind and start anew. She's always teetering between the sane boring world she lives in and this one of much more adventure, a bolder, brighter world.

Switchfoot – This Is Your Life Lyrics 13 years ago
I hate my job with a flaming passion. Just don't know what to do next. This song gives great inspiration though. so hard to take that next step.

Pearl Jam – Rearviewmirror Lyrics 13 years ago
This song means so much to me. I was dating this girl for a while- very sweet girl, but it always seemed like I was trying to impress her. She went away for a while, and came back and ended things with me. All is good because she's definitely not what I wanted. I absolutely love the line, "I gather speed from you fucking with me". Every time I think of how I bent over backwards for her, just pisses me off and wants to put the past behind me.

John Denver – Rocky Mountain High Lyrics 14 years ago
The summer of my 27th year is approaching rapidly. I feel 26 is quite an awkward and crucial age- some of my friends are getting engaged, and I'm realizing that hacking away at my daily job isn't all that special. My best friend and I are taking a road trip out west. This song is perfect.

O.A.R. – Here's To You Lyrics 14 years ago
What you see going by is a shadow,
You're got to live in front of your eyes....great quote- I view it a different way. Living in a shadow, you are reacting to life, kind of taking what comes your way, instead of going out and getting what you want. If you live in front of your eyes, you are taking the initiative and creating your dreams in life, instead of waiting for other things to push you.

The Cranberries – Sunday Lyrics 14 years ago
just came across this song recently. fairly straightforward- i don't think she understands why her partner is leaving. I really like the whole theme of how he lifts her off the ground, he's such an amazing presence in her life. good stuff.

Dave Matthews Band – Don't Drink the Water Lyrics 14 years ago
for me, on a personal basis, I feel this song represents letting all of the past demons out of you. If it's a bad relationship that has kept you scarred, or somebody making you feel worthless growing up, this song is trying to move beyond their worlds, into your own. There isn't room for both. At the end of the song, he has reached this peace with himself. I also think the whole idea of don't drink the water is don't let others poison your thoughts. Think and feel for yourself, no matter how twisted that might be. I normally don't like dave's popular songs, but this song is pure and amazing.

Remy Zero – Fair Lyrics 14 years ago
also, I think the whole point of this song is that even though she hurt him, he's not losing hope and faith in her. Even though it might be too much to overcome, he still believes in her, and that's not fair.

Remy Zero – Fair Lyrics 14 years ago
first off- i think the lyrics are pretty far off. great song though. I think it's about coming back to someone too late, when the damage has been done. I think they had something special, but the time apart has caused too much hurt. I love the line, "sing to me hope as she's thrown on the sand."
He's calling hope a real person.

I think the whole idea with "Fair" is more of a sarcastic tone- he was there for her the whole time while she disappeared on him. He was counting on her and she didn't hold up her end.

The Shins – The Past And Pending Lyrics 14 years ago
i kind of see it differently. I just think this song is so beautiful....the whole idea to me is this fire is starting in their relationship, it's that time where you hit the point where you can advance and get serious, or take a step back. I love the reference to the foreign candle in your eye. how cool. something beautiful is in her eye, but it isn't what he hoped for or recognized.

The second verse goes on about the chilly and foggy theme. I think she is getting cold feet to committ.

"trail of white blood betrays the reckless route your craft is running" is the best lyric of the song in my opinion. White blood is cold and distant....I think he's a dreamer, wants to see where things will go, but she's holding back for some reason.

Dave Matthews Band – The Maker Lyrics 14 years ago
amazing song. I don't think it has much to do with religion. I think it's all about turning into someone who you're not, becoming someone who you're unfamiliar with. The whole idea of the Maker is your creator, who knows your true self. I think we often are tempted to sway from our core beliefs and values, we are in a sense, "burning in the eyes of the Maker"

Frou Frou – Let Go Lyrics 14 years ago
very well put Iamtheevenstar. my roommate just broke up with his girlfriend last night....ironic. I kind of view the whole "beauty in the breakdown." in the sense that even though you may break down, you are actually growing, learning and moving on. You become stronger. soundtrack for Garden State is absolutely sick. I am becoming a huge fan of the Shins, for sure. Way to give them a plug in the movie!

Better Than Ezra – In The Blood Lyrics 15 years ago
this song is definitely open to interpretation. My guess is that he has so many questions about this girl- nothing bad, mainly insecurities, but things about her, just being around her give him a self-assured kind of feeling. I think he's "asking" because it's too good to be true.

submissions
R.E.M. – Bad Day Lyrics 15 years ago
i don't think this song has much to do with being a celebrity, more along the lines of wanting to be left alone when you're having a bad day. Whenever I'm having a bad day, I always want to be left alone, but people keep on making stupid requests. a grind for sure.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Southern Cross Lyrics 15 years ago
I think this journey they're talking about is not an actual trip to the southern Islands as they say, more like a metaphor to how he's been all around, experimenting with love with many different women, but he always comes back to this one girl. I think this whole idea about the Southern Cross is the symbol for the love they share in their relationship; he's been looking for it on his journey and found it in this girl.

I love the line, "She is all that I have left, and music is her name."

not sure how that fits in my interpretation of the song, but it's stiff pretty cool.

Dave Matthews Band – Proudest Monkey Lyrics 15 years ago
Plain and simple, I feel like I'm floating when I hear this song. I turn off the lights in my room and play it, and feel as if I'm walking on air. That's how powerful this song is. I agree with the meaning, about venturing off into the unknown.

Dave Matthews Band – Raven Lyrics 15 years ago
Interesting interpretations friends. I think this is more of a song about a father trying his best to lead the song in the right path in life, but he actually kills his dreams and takes away his youthful exuberance.

While everything is open, everything is shut down, down down- This kid has his whole future in front of him, but really his future is limited from the restrictions and poisonous ideas from his father.

The BEST part of the song I feel is when Dave initially says, the ground is nothing more than one point of view. I believe this point of view is that of his father. At the end the point of view changes to his very own. He is over the past and willing to open up to what the future has in store for him.

rock on players.

Jason Mraz – Unfold Lyrics 15 years ago
I also really dig the whole bong, bong, bong part- I think these sounds are the cleansing process and the bells are starting to ring. the whole part at the end of words repeat breathing histories into stories untold- I think that's saying- stories about his past that were harmful and left dead are finally brought to light.

Third Eye Blind – Blinded (When I See You) Lyrics 15 years ago
I absolutely love the lines...
"or stay, and let the day just fade away in a wild dedication, take the moment of hope and let it run, and never look back on all of the damage we have done now to each other."

perfect.

Neutral Milk Hotel – Two-Headed Boy Pt. 2 Lyrics 15 years ago
I have a different interpretation of this song. I think this song is about letting go of your father figure and moving on in life, moving out in your own. IN the beginning, the father wants a child to influence. The blister part with the wings in the spine is the son/person breaking away from the influence.

How he'd love to find his tounge in your cheek- I think this is the father wants his teachings/guidance to impact his son, even thought the son is trying to find his own perspective.

Then he goes on to say, he'll always love him no matter what he takes away from his father.

I think the brother actually found the courage to break away, and the narrator is admiring that. Even though it might not have gone as smoothly, he is his own man now. "brain fell out of his teeth"- he spoke everything on his mind.

At the end, he's saying to have faith in heading out in life on his own.

My interpretation of the two-headed boy part is this mixed lives we all live, those to please our parents, and those to live how we really want.

Jason Mraz – Unfold Lyrics 15 years ago
my absolute favorite song. I think some of the lyrics here are off, but that's cool. I think, to me, this song is about letting go of your past and opening up to what the world and your life has to offer you. Overcoming any odds. I really like the line- Quality is what you see now in the corner of your eye. Kind of like if you look straight ahead, you might not find what you're looking for- you have to search for it. I think the whole idea of holding out this time is he's saying that he's not going to succumb to past beliefs that he's not capable of doing something. Just my thoughts. rock on players.

Guster – Parachute Lyrics 15 years ago
i don't think this song is about life after taking the first step, more along the lines of finding the courage to take the first step. The whole realization of a parachute is that we have support if plans don't work out as planned, we have a safety net, and we'll live on to see another day and get another chance.

Guster – Window Lyrics 15 years ago
i think the whole idea of a window is this. people look out of windows to the world, a world that's exciting, scarey, and unpredictable. We want to explore, but something is holding us back- this window. I don't think it has much to do with jumping off a ledge, more along the lines of getting a push in life to achieve what you'd like, taking that huge first step. I love the line, when all I see is the error of my own enemy. rock on players.
