Tapes N Tapes – Insistor Lyrics 13 years ago
Kelly, Kelly, it's not your right
To be cheating, fighting and starting life

"starting life" can refer to her pregnancy too, maybe the guy doesn't want her to be a single mother "fighting". The child might be accidental and his father cheated on her mother...

Patrick Wolf – To The Lighthouse Lyrics 13 years ago
i studied Woolf's "A Room of One's Own" last month and her life as well, and i find this sentence striking:

"stop collecting stones, and the river bed shall not be you home"
which directly refers to her suicide, after she left a note for her husband.

A song in honor of Virginia Woolf ? :]

Snow Patrol – Headlights On Dark Roads Lyrics 13 years ago
I agree more with Mklyrics, but Grego's explanation is appealing too. But in the booklet of the limited edition, Lightbody wrote :

"The verses are as dark as i've ever written" and
"... the chorus delivered such a release"

So i guess suicide is a possible explanation

Broken Social Scene – Stars and Sons Lyrics 13 years ago
I think it deals with death and life. Maybe a game?
"Just wanna know, how far to live on
You're the same when you're living"

He's playing with his own life, trying to know where are the limits. Red refers to blood too.
"You can see through the red" might mean people are scared of dying, but it's only blood and flesh.

Well, that's what i feel from this song!

"Chasing cars", so much innocence in these two words

Franz Ferdinand – Missing You Lyrics 14 years ago
i've just found this on CNN:
Alex: The ones I feel the most personal about? I don't know, maybe it's a song we don't play very often- a song called "Missing You" , in fact we've never played it live. It was only a b-side, but it's probably the most personal song for me. Because it's about somebody I really miss.

They sang it several times at french television, with Jane Birkin. It's not the original lyrics (apart the "Sorry Angel désolé" part) though I love the way it turned to.

Franz Ferdinand – Missing You Lyrics 14 years ago
He's remembering of a person, he tries to imagine what he/she would be doing ("So I'm trying to pretend you're out in the garden") but at the end he realises it's just a ghost, and sees him/her slowly vanishing in front of him.
It seems like it was someone who enjoyed life but died too soon.
A beautiful song underated, as Love&Destroy

I'm so free as I'm naked
Shining silver under the moon

I'm going to meet you at midnight (x2)
You see, I'll forget about living alone
As I learn how to live and to die

Thanks for your explanation!
