Cat Power – Good Woman Lyrics 17 years ago
I think it could also be a song about a passionate relationship that obviously is loving, but also brings out the worst of the two involved. They do really love eachother, but she doesn't like the "bad woman" and "bad man" they sometimes become. Leaving him is her way of saving the beauty that is still left between them, keeping it all a memory she will be able to cherish.

"I will miss your heart so tender
And I will love
This love forever
And this is why I am leaving"

She fears that if she stays they might reach a point where they won't be the same man and woman who once fell in love anymore. If those people disappear, their love will be lost too.

They won't see eachother fave to face anymore, but they "will love / This love forever".

PJ Harvey – Big Exit Lyrics 17 years ago
You are the one who should "get ur facts rite before u criticise", jonnybassman. The song I think you are talking about is "The Whores Hustle And The Hustlers Whore":

[...] "I watch the news, I read newspapers. I am like most people. I am very affected and can be emotionally upset by what is going on, and it reaches the point of anger: 'This is just awful and has to stop.' I can't even remember what affected me at the time, but it is so many things on a daily basis, when it comes to world news. It was me voicing my anger and upset at the state we are in."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when it comes to "Big Exit" it doesn't say much about the meaning of the song, just a bit about the making of it. To be acting like you are speaking the truth, when what you call facts don't seem to be much else than a mix-up from your side... that just makes you seem inattentive.

PJ Harvey – Missed Lyrics 17 years ago
Yes, I really think it is/could be. When I listen to it I usually try not to look at it like that, maybe because I'm agnostic. But... I guess it is about wanting some kind of sign/proof that there is a God. About "missing" him. About wanting to know if there really is a "creator" or if the "creator" is nothing more than a creation of ours. About needing to know. Anyway - amazing song!

PJ Harvey – Big Exit Lyrics 17 years ago
blueskymind: You are so very right about that PJ's lyrics should not be taken literally, that is one of the reasons I keep playing her songs over and over again. Though, in this song I think she writes (and sings) in a less "blurry", more straight-forward way.

I really see your point though. Still, I personally think it's a song about fear, helplessness and death as an escape. But hey, what do I know? I'm not Polly Jean Harvey. But I'm damn glad someone is.

PJ Harvey – Big Exit Lyrics 17 years ago
I probably would think so too, if it wasn't for these lines:

"But I want a pistol
In my hand
I wanna go to
A different land"

The title, "Big Exit", also makes me believe it's about stepping out of the mortal world and into whatever awaits you when you have. In my opinion, a "big exit" that leads to a "different land" seems to be representing death (and life after death) way too well to be some sort of coincidence or random choice of words.

Can anyone hear what she says here?

"He ain't - - for scrabble
You don't get points for doubles"

If you do, please let me know. I can't tell by listening, and looking in the textbook isn't exactly helping either.

PJ Harvey – Big Exit Lyrics 17 years ago
I really doubt that this can be about anything else than suicide. If not to the land of the dead, where would that gun take her?

She can no longer see any hope for this "crazy" world of ours, she can only see the pain and suffering that no-one seems to be able to stop. Wherever she walks this feeling and these images are always following her, she wants to "run" away from them but can't. Since "the hurt" is probably taking her over, she fears it might have already managed to kill her emotionally. Maybe she thinks that the only way she now could find a "safe place" is by putting a bullet in her heart, 'cause in that way the hurt would die with her last hearbeat.

PJ Harvey – To Bring You My Love Lyrics 17 years ago
She is indeed fantastic, severedvox.

Love can make you do the craziest things. Things you could never picture yourself doing for anything or anyone before you've reached this point where there's only one thing that keeps you going - your love - the only thing or person you have left and which you refuse to give up on. Maybe there's just no room for doubts in your heart when it's so filled with this kind of passionate love that tends to make you invincible and blinded at the same time.

Likes she sings, she's "right", and has done everything to bring you her love.

I agree about the "I’ve got a big mouth"-part... she definitely should have skipped it. Yet, I wonder how many people would be able to make a song about oral sex sound beautiful and not just tacky. She's one of those people who can, and this song proves it.
