...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead – Bells Of Creation Lyrics 10 years ago
I think all those lyrics suggestions are spot on.

Neutral Milk Hotel – Tuesday Moon Lyrics 11 years ago
I also have that version of the song. Freakin' incredible, I suggest everyone try to hunt it down.

The Ataris – A Beautiful Mistake Lyrics 11 years ago
We just broke up... she was my closest friend, but we just weren't right together. Just because it hurts, doesn't mean it was wrong to do. I need to sleep now...

The Ataris – A Beautiful Mistake Lyrics 11 years ago
oh my god. this song describes exactly how I feel in my current relationship. I don't think I want to stay in it, but breaking it off will feel like loosing my best friend.

The uncertainty of picking one path or another.... exactly where I am right now...

Death Cab for Cutie – We Looked Like Giants Lyrics 12 years ago
"I've become what I always hated,
When I was with you there."

This is the line that says the most in my opinion. He's never thought highly of cheaters (as most people don't), yet here he finds himself doing what he always condemned before.

Love the dichotomy of "God Bless" and "Goddamn" in the first two stanzas. Brilliant.

Social Distortion – Story of My Life Lyrics 12 years ago
This song gives me a feeling in the pit of my stomach, that feeling when you realize you can never go back.

Weezer – Across The Sea Lyrics 14 years ago
Back too many years now, I had a pen pal over in the U.K.. This song still makes me think of her. Damn, what I wouldn't give to see her again.

Jawbreaker – Chemistry Lyrics 14 years ago
Great song. Quintessential high school experience.

Let's see what Blake covers...
social hostility, bad hair choices, ostracism, ditching class, embarassment, thinking about a girl, and general school apathy. Sounds just like my time at high school.

...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead – It Was There (That I Saw You) Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with bottekott. Saw them live and it's just one kicking wall of sound.

Interesting note: "fey" means to have magical qualities, as well as 'full of the sense of approaching death'.
Quite appropriate as this song seems to be about a magical love that was somehow died. The singer recalls the wonderful times they had, but wonders what became of his love.

He only wants to hold her again and find that bond they once had, where lost themselves in each other and became one. (shown in "let our sense of selves decay", and possibly "let the clock strike one")

The Ataris – Boxcar Lyrics 14 years ago
I saw them cover this last Ataris show I attended. It was sad that so many people around me hadn't heard of Jawbreaker, but I still yelled my heart out as they stood around stratching their heads.

Check out Jawbreaker!

Jawbreaker – Into You Like A Train Lyrics 14 years ago
Psychedelic furs cover, I believe. On the re-release of Dear You. Very sweet song.

The meaning's pretty obvious, he doesn't care about a marriage or relationship or anything solid like that, he just wants to screw her.

Jawbreaker – Sluttering (May 4th) Lyrics 14 years ago
The girl he was dating was cheating on him. She was being a slut, hence the name. Onto the specific lyrics:

Congratulations to you both, I hope you're happy.
If there's a moral to this story then I wish you'd show me.
- He's sarcastically congratulating them, and lamenting his cuckold position. Perhaps even a jab that his girlfriend has no 'morals' for cheating on him?

You need a little less than what you take for granted.
- perhaps love or sex, she's taking their relationship for granted.

You need a little more suppression of you appetites.
- She needs to keep her legs closed.

I made a word to give this state a name, this game a guess.
I call it "sluttering."
- Calling her a slut

This is a story you won't tell the kids we'll never have.
If you hear this song a hundred times it still won't be enough.
- He's telling her she ruined their relationship, and he's pissed.

Jawbreaker – Shirt Lyrics 14 years ago
Oh man, lyrics are a bit off. For starters, it's

You're like a swimming pool,
Hypnotic blue, and I fell in...

what a sweet line.

I second deep and down, Get the re-release of Dear You.
