Neko Case – Things That Scare Me Lyrics 14 years ago
this was my first Neko song, a few years ago... and still gives me chills when she sings "I'm a dying breed who still believes, haunted by... american dreams"... Neko is a powerful composer and this song is to date on the top 5 on my list.

Willie Nelson – The Bob Song Lyrics 14 years ago
the phrase Guess I'm A little tangled in a vine is a direct reference to Bob Dylan and his song Tangled up in blue... it's evident through the song that he's talking about him

Beirut – A Sunday Smile Lyrics 14 years ago
this song! my God... something died, the relationship died, still he says that in what they left to admire is this white church, which represents the sacred of what they had, and afterwards he goes on saying: And as we reach for the sky, reach the church of white...

maybe after the crash and burn, you can still aim for that sacred thing you lost.

The Cure – This Twilight Garden Lyrics 15 years ago
when my best friend and partner in crime dedicated this song to me on a mixed tape, I knew there was no turning back! Robert Smith is a voice from within...

Kaiser Chiefs – Ruby Lyrics 16 years ago
Ruby! awesome song... I believe it's about this guy wanting to date a girl he really likes but he is sensing she doesn't really like him, just probably having him as a second option, and it's killing the guy because he is really hung up on this Ruby character...

Billy Idol – Eyes Without A Face Lyrics 16 years ago
maybe he has a girl in his life who he loved once and still loves, but she has become someone else, a deceiver, and it's hard for him to love her because he knows she lies and she is not the person who he fell for anymore, and he senses it but hasn't come around to it yet, so he doesn't know how to deal with it really

Red House Painters – Song for a Blue Guitar Lyrics 16 years ago
a song for a BLUE guitar is in reference of when you say you're blue, as in sad. The song, the melody, the voices, it all evoques sadness. it's wicked beautiful..

The Sisters of Mercy – Marian Lyrics 16 years ago
The part in german goes saying:
what i can do and what i could do, I dont know anymore
give me something beautiful again, pull me from the sea
i hear you calling, Marian, you can hear me crying,
i am here alone...
I hear you calling, Marian, without your help i’m losing myslef in this place

I always believed the song is about someone who is desperate and full of trouble, and without exit, and is calling out to his last good beacon, Marian... the only person he can relate to in the troubled times, someone who probably represents something pure for him and that is what he needs to be safe. It's how i've always looked at it.

Sun Kil Moon – Carry Me Ohio Lyrics 16 years ago

what about the sweetness we knew
what about what's good what's true
from those day...

this song absolutely crushes me...
someone recorded it for me a while ago...
I did forgive him...

Nada Surf – Blizzard of '77 Lyrics 16 years ago
maybe he misses someone whom he shared with all those things he lists at the beginning of the song, like the great 7-11 reference... after he says all these things, like when you write a letter, he says something to the person you're writing to...

Hot Hot Heat – Middle of Nowhere Lyrics 16 years ago
well maybe I'm a bit off, but I really thinks it's about this guy who likes a certain girl, and she likes him back, but she's teasing as well, not being upfront or clear about her feelings towards the guy... she's kind of keeping him off his toes, and he doesn't really understand what's her game, if she likes him or not, what the deal is... and she says "MAYBE there's a bit of me waiting for a bit of you, baby", showing there is something "maybe" as in not giving him the reassurance he is seeking. Still she's around and there for him, but doesn't give herself away completely, yet.

Jim White – Static On The Radio Lyrics 16 years ago
I love this song... and I'm almost positive the girl in the chorus is with Aimee Mann... to me it's simply about how as time passes, you go changing and looking at things differently, searching deeper within what people present you, like a 'smell the coffee and wake up, pay attention, don't blend along with something that's not real' situation.

Aimee Mann – It Takes All Kinds Lyrics 16 years ago
what an awesome song... and the voices of the background... it's great to hear it...

Tori Amos – Jamaica Inn Lyrics 16 years ago
What a song. It's amazing how Tori portrays a betrayal in her relationship with such sublime metaphores.. like when the captain is asked about the honesty of this "pirate" coming along, as you foresee rocks=trouble... and then when she says that trust is the sexiest thing you can tell that by asking for someone to sitch her broken jeans out of the hole he made (he hurt her, broke her heart) she's just showing the vulnerable side of being cheated or lied to... the pirates come and they take anything they find, merciless... and she's left second guessing herself... beautiful song... and sad too

Neko Case – Hold On, Hold On Lyrics 16 years ago
i think it's about someone who lost hope of good things to come their way. she goes on about describing how she has been the 'bad seed', and a lonely person who once believed things would go good and then saw otherwise... when she says 'that echo chorus lied to me with it's hold on...'.. the chorus: a crowd telling her to wait and see, and that whole deal... when you get the hang of it, it's a pretty sad song

Tom Petty – It'll All Work Out Lyrics 17 years ago
I think that's exactly it... they are no longer toguether, still she is always present, always in his mind, and in a way i will never understand, it works out for him...maybe resignation of having her gone with someone good to her even though he still loves her. This song kills me...!

Bruce Springsteen – Sad Eyes Lyrics 17 years ago
I think it's the opposite... this person is patiently waiting for the other one to wander off because he knows for sure she will end up with him, because her eyes (sad) tell him he is right about her feelings... in the meantime the girl is with other boys and all that crap, and still the guy with his pride tells her he might not be there in the end, but he knows the girl is sure of the opposite, because he's got sad eyes too, and she can tell that he loves her. Awesome song...

Aqueduct – Hear Design Lyrics 17 years ago
freakin' great song indeed! this song will stick in your head for days once it gets you! I think too that the "heart design" reference previously posted is pretty accurate, and also, when you say your heart is your own design and you say that whatever goes, you'll still be there (to me) is directly amazing... my own design, and the love is yours.

Radiohead – Karma Police Lyrics 17 years ago
amazing song, specially for us blessed with sarcasm and irony towards certain people... I like the part where he crashes this party and the owner has the hitler hairstyle, or just someone he can't stand and he calls the karma police... but is it her karma or his karma haunting him that drove him to this party?
"this is what you get when you mess with us..."
bravo, radiohead... bravo!

Brendan Benson – Tiny Spark Lyrics 17 years ago
yes, this one is great!!! the person in the song is feeling vulnerable towards someone, and even when he's embarassed for showing he likes her that much (I'm naked in school but ca't make it to the door part) and that it hurts when they separate, it makes the tiny spark... sublime!
