Ani DiFranco – Untouchable Face Lyrics 10 years ago
It has gotta be about loving someone already in a relationship. I am in the same situation. It's about knowing how happy they are, but having so much desire to be with them and make them happy yourself. Fuck you is said in the essence, not of abuse, just more exasperation that she can't have them (that they're taken). And that she wants to see them again but she doesn't look forward to it because it's just flaunting what she can't have.

Missy Higgins – Scar Lyrics 12 years ago
Upon hearing an interview with missy, this song is about the whole record execs.

But to four_romos.. "Just because someone is lesbian or bi doesn't mean that every song they write is going to be about their sexuality. "
Well no shit!! But one song can be can't it?!

This isn't it though. And also to enthused punk, All For Believing was her first track unearthed on the fantastic TRIPLE J.

Terrific song.

The Long Blondes – Once and Never Again Lyrics 12 years ago
I feel as tho this song is about a 19yo girl having an older friend who has been where she has and is much wiser. I only think this because I'm 19 and have a best mate in her early 30s.
However it definitely makes more sense to see it from the mother perspective.
Whatever it means, it's a great song.

Tragic this moment of kindness
Touches my eyes in their blindness

Something With Numbers – Apple of the Eye (Lay me down) Lyrics 12 years ago
It's a cool little tune. Anyone think it may be about a secret kinda relationship based on desire and lust? But maybe they can't reveal themselves for whatever reason. Or maybe its about a boring kinda relationship an he dreams of more desirable things from it. Eh, who knows.

This is a good line:
"Bottle desire liquid pain"

Colin Hay – I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You Lyrics 12 years ago
Unrequited love sucks. Wish I didn't relate to this song but I do, nearly every single line. Even "I don't what you to think I'm unhappy." Ha, pretending.

To not be able to have someone you want, for whatever reason, is nature at it's harshest and this song encapulates that in a beautiful way.

Crowded House – Locked Out Lyrics 12 years ago
I didn't think this song meant much, but thinking about the lyrics, it does.

Neil Finn is a champ.
"every night I circle like the moon
it's an act of simple devotion
but it can take forever when you've got something to prove"

Crowded House – Private Universe Lyrics 12 years ago
I've always loved other CH songs but lately I've found an awesome-ness in this one! I find it hard to decipher the lyrics, but in a way I can relate.

Sarah Blasko – All Coming Back Lyrics 12 years ago
How wonderful are these lines:

"What once was clothed in white
Bears the bruise of a burden"

That means so much.

Sarah Blasko – Planet New Year Lyrics 12 years ago
This is a fantastic song of a brilliant album.

Trying to decipher Blasko's lyrics is hard, it's simply easier to apply them to your own life. I see this song as a feeling of wasting time.. realising you've spent a while not going anywhere, not progressing yourself.

Bernard Fanning – Watch Over Me Lyrics 12 years ago
He performed this with Claire Bowditch and Kasey Chambers at the aria's. It was brilliant.

Ben Kweller – Sundress Lyrics 13 years ago
The first verse of this song, and the guitar, is just beautiful. I wouldn't care if the whole song just kept repeating in that way. Overall, a great song.. *ahh*

Missy Higgins – The sound of white Lyrics 13 years ago
It's quite possibly about a death of a loved one, but for me it's about the end of a close relationship/even friendship.
That's how I relate to it. I had a very close friend, things got intimate, and I wanted her so bad. Even when I knew nothing could happen, I would dream and dream. Hopelessly.
So for me its about something I cant have, but have had before. And it just won't get out of the mind.

Live – All Over You Lyrics 13 years ago

No comments?

Beautiful song. Shits all over 'punks not dead'.

"I wish that I inspired tiny fireworks inside the way you do
So delicately made"
Is the most wonderful line from the song.

Makes me think of a certain someone. And just stuff in general.

This is my fave song off 'Meds'. It's just awesome. Particularly the line "I'd break the back of love for you." as it reminds of someone..

But anyway, awesome track.

Why have no more comments been made on this song? We need some more JJJ listeners around.

Quality track. She pursues the lryrics, finds the right emotional ground and delivers them with a stunning passion. Ahh.

Foo Fighters – Everlong Lyrics 13 years ago
Dave Grohl > Kurt Cobain (as wonderful as he was..)

Best song ever. It possesses such beauty, simplicity.. created with such a magnificent touch.
Definitely mixed emotions, but a lot of the time I take it literally. Singing with my mates, nothing could ever be this good again. For me it's a song of nostalgia I suppose. I love it.

Keane – Somewhere Only We Know Lyrics 15 years ago
I agree silverdew - "I think that the speaker is in a relationship where he is completely in love with his partner, but not satisfied with the relationship." with that exactly.
Evident in the line..
"This could be the end of everything"
Perhaps after a rekindling of the relationship, wanting to go back to it's roots and where it all began. Touching song.

Simple Plan – I'd Do Anything Lyrics 15 years ago
The lyrics have no hidden meaning, quite obvious. Although never been a huge fan of the pop-punk, I found myself buying this album because I can relate to some songs to a certain degree. This song makes me happy, makes me sad, reminds me of the only girl I've ever felt truly attracted to (yes Im a chick). We were great mates, but we don't get to see each other as much now, but "I'd do anything..".

submissions
Missy Higgins – Scar Lyrics 15 years ago
I believe, as it makes sense, and I have also heard this, that Scar is about Missy's sexuality (either bi or lesbian).
"A triangle, trying to squeeze through a circle" - she can not fit into the mould of being straight
"And she told me don't trust them, trust me" - her acceptance of females in a relationship as opposed to the male gender
Overall, if not clearly written in the lyrics, the general vibe of this song is her emotions/journey/whatever about being gay.
