I Hate Myself – The Lightning Says Lyrics 12 years ago
I've got to reiterate that the latter lyric is just "love me too". When you put the "I" in front of it, it could change the intent a little bit. Ray Sullivan, as you probably know was struck by lightning 7 times. The song is called "The Lightning Says". This is the lighting telling Ray "I love you, love me too". If I were hardpressed to delve into this song any farther than this is what the lightning is saying, I would say that this song is about accepting things that you can't help. I usually hate it when people try to pick apart songs too deeply though.

I Hate Myself – The Lightning Says Lyrics 12 years ago
I Hate Myself is my favorite band and this competes for my favorite record of theirs. I think that the latter is actually just "love me too". "I love you, love me too."

Sun Kil Moon – Glenn Tipton Lyrics 13 years ago
ttuutt, I think you're correct about him "burying his first victim" to be metaphorical not literal.

Marcy Playground – Opium Lyrics 13 years ago
This whole record is really great. I agree with everyone that "Sex and Candy" was overplayed. This is my favorite song off the album. It slays me when he sings "mom". Maybe he feels really lost and he thinks of his mother.

Excellent observation. I was there for Ivan as well.

Iron & Wine – Radio War Lyrics 14 years ago
I really like this song. I think its about a girl who's husband died at war. Its winter time and she just wants the season to pass. The war overseas is just the "radio war" but for Sara it means a lot more because she lost a loved one. I like how the war is personified as a "beast" with "red talons".

Iron & Wine – Muddy Hymnal Lyrics 14 years ago
That's a really great observation. I didn't get that at all but it makes sense. This is probably my favorite Iron & Wine song. I'm surprised nobody else has posted. Good job though.

Owen – Take Care Of Yourself Lyrics 14 years ago
That sucks your boyfriend has this stance on your relationship. The song is definitely honest though; he's admitting he's unsure. I really love this song; its probably my favorite from the record. I like the guitar during the "Sarah" parts especially.

The Promise Ring – Tell Everyone We're Dead Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is so good. I think its about a break-up.

The Promise Ring – Red & Blue Jeans Lyrics 14 years ago
Actually, I think he is saying "Nothing feels good (whoa?)". That's what I sing to myself at least.

The Promise Ring – Letters to the Far Reaches Lyrics 14 years ago
That's brilliant. I have racked my brain thinking "Who the hell are his "black-eyed friends"? That's a great observation and sheds a little more light on this idea of things change.

The Jesus and Mary Chain – Just Like Honey Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is very sexual. "Honey Dripping Bee Hive" alludes to that part of a the female anatomy. The "Plastic Toy" that he wants to be might substitute for the girl's "toy". A few other lyrical clips support this idea. All together its an awesome song though.

Jimmy Eat World – Untitled Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is really rich in meaning. I think that his girlfriend cheated on him. "You stepped out" on me. Amazing song
