Tom Waits – World Keeps Turning Lyrics 14 years ago

Lisbeth Scott – Be Still My Soul Lyrics 14 years ago
This sounds like a really God-dy song but I'm not religious and i just think its so pretty... it was in Alias when Vaughn is at the CIA funeral and he hugs the kid... thats where i heard it. lisbeth scott has a lovely voice, so heartfelt. and good for funerals i think, if one is religious

Tom Waits – Somewhere Lyrics 14 years ago
A cover of the West Side Story version... in context, its self explanatory: the couple can't be together despite their strong love, and so they dream about running away to a better place, someday. tom waits' voice is so perfect for this song, it makes me ache, especially as its the story of my life. though nobody i've played this for seems to think he has a good voice, but i do. its rough and scratchy but i like it.

Joni Mitchell – River Lyrics 14 years ago
pretty self explanatory isnt it? ok so im gonna say something pretty dorky nobody laugh... if anybody watches Alias, this is the song thats playing in the background in season one (maybe two, i forget) when Sydney finds out Jack betrayed her (when he tried to make it look like irina betrayed them) and she walks into the CIA room all teary and rained on and Vaughn goes over and gives her a really sweet hug. aw i loved the early seasons of that show.

Andrea Bocelli – Con Te Partiro Lyrics 14 years ago
In english:

When I'm alone
I dream on the horizon
And words fail
Yes, I know there is no light
In a room where the sun is absent
If you are not with me
At the windows
Show everone my heart
Which you set alight
Enclose within me
The light you
Encountered on the street

I'll go with you
To countries I newer
Saw and shared with you
Now, yes, I shall experience them
I'll go with you
On ships across seas
Which, I know,
No, no, exist no longer
With you I shall experience them

When you are far away
I dream on the horizon
And words fail
And yes, I know
That you are with me
You, my moon, are here with me
My sun, you are here with me

I'll go with you
To countries I never
Saw and shared with you
Now, yes, I shall experience them
I'll go with you
On ships across seas
Which, I know,
No, no, exist no longer
With you I shall experience them again
I'll go with you
On ships across seas
Which, I know,
No, no, exist no longer
With you I shall experience them again
I'll go with you
I, with you

Bruce Springsteen – American Skin (41 Shots) Lyrics 14 years ago
http://rwor.org/a/v22/1060-69/1060/springsteen.htm has a lot about this... Amadou Diallo was a Guinean immigrant who got killed by 4 police officers- he reached for his wallet to show ID i guess, they thought he was reaching for a gun and shot him 41 times. can you even imagine? thats like 10 times each...

Damien Rice – I Remember Lyrics 14 years ago
so everything's been said, but quick comment- I love how they use words that mirror another meaning, most physically. Ie, in blower's daughter she says "did I say that I loathe you? did I say that I want to..." and it sounds like love you, want you. And in this one its similar with the "I want you hear" and Damien's "I wanna hear" ... just throwing that out there. And it works, too, if you interpret his verse as being very hurt after the breakup.

very cool song... does any1 who speaks spanish (spanish, right?) have an explanation of the lyrics?

submissions
Norah Jones – Don't Miss You At All Lyrics 14 years ago
i adore this song... the meaning I think is that she's trying not to think about her ex but it's hard not to be reminded of him and not to think of him. and she does miss him a wee. Like when she says "if you never come to me, you'll stay a distant memory"... but if you do come to me, i wont complain. that line and "i wonder who i am without the warm touch of your hand" make me think she's making an effort to move on, but she'd take him back.

Tupac Shakur – Thugz Mansion Lyrics 14 years ago
It's so heartfelt and different from a lot of rap songs because its about his feelings, and his fight against despair. This song made me realize he's more than a great rapper, he's a poet even in that urban way. The acoustic version of this really brings out the poignancy of the words... great song. I hope Tupac found his thugz mansion.

Tim McGraw – She's My Kind of Rain Lyrics 14 years ago
I think its very romantic, one of my faves in fact... rain is a symbol of purification and a new beginning, and so maybe she's this guy's new reason and he's straightening himself out ("I confess all my crimes")... but she's not all over him to get him to change; "she sits quietly there like water in a jar" to me is saying that she's changing him in a quiet, non-pushy way just by being there... and also water in a jar is the only way you can gather rain into something solid or that you can hold. This song isn't about flattering the woman, it's about acknowledging all that she's done for him and everything she means to him.

Daniel Bedingfield – Never Gonna Leave Your Side Lyrics 14 years ago
I'm only the second commenter?? This is such a pretty love song. I never hear it/ heard it much on the radio here in the states, but in the UK it was not only on the radio a lot but the video played a lot. Really pretty video, too - at the really rising part with the key change, she's riding on this gorgeous horse... gotta watch it. It's a simple meaning, a guy hurt a girl and he loves her and wants her back because she completes him, to use the cliche. Just download it, it'll grow on you (-:

The Rolling Stones – Brown Sugar Lyrics 14 years ago
What joker thought this was about drugs? Maybe they were high when they wrote it, but the literal meaning is unqueestionable. Slaveowner likes to eat out his black slaves -> "brown sugar." This song disgusts me. No doubt this is the most sexist and racist song that has reached this height of popularity. "Knows he's doin alright, hear him whip the women just around midnight" ??? WTF happened to make this song a hit? I go to a concert and people dance and sing right along. Just read the lyrcs. I'm surprised its allowed on the radio.

Amos Lee – Colors Lyrics 14 years ago
this song is so beautiful... i'm pretty sure that norah jones collaborated on it, and it has that sweet feel she gives her songs. basically about a painful breakup- he hurt her, he misses her, life grows blunt. it describes a situation we've basically all been in, and its really touching.

oh just kidding, clarinet teacher... is what i meant by cello teacher...

Damien Rice – The Blower's Daughter Lyrics 14 years ago
okay heres my take on it:
this is post-relationship. he loved her, yet she broke up with him. him: "like you said it would be, life goes easy on me most of the time" - after she broke up with him, cuz when she did she must've done the "its not you, you'll move on" kind of thing. "like you said it should be, we'll both forget..."

but i feel like she loved him too. "did I say that I loathe you? did I say I want to leav it all behind?" - I feel like this line is regretful. like, did I really say those things? maybe she was playing hard to get, maybe she was having doubts, whatever but I think she sounds sorry in these lines.
plus, "did I say that I loathe you"... theres something sexual about loathing, I think. know when you want to hit him and at the same time want to love him? when its a guy thats hard to understand.. idk, throwing that out there...

but now he's moving on from her- "til I find somebody new."

but he obviously was in love with her and moving on is hard for him.

by the way: i read that this is about the daughter of his cello teacher. or a cello teacher he had once, idk. lil fact (0:
