Absolutely gorgeous song.

Hair – Hair Lyrics 12 years ago
"Oh say can you see
My eyes if you can
Then my hair's too short"

One of the funniest lines of the musical/movie.

Katie Melua – Piece by Piece Lyrics 12 years ago
This song is quite obviously about a break-up and the way she learns to handle the new situation. I love the change of melody during the "I'll shed like skin (...)" part and also her kind of eerie-sounding voice right after those lines.

Sheryl Crow – Wildflower Lyrics 12 years ago
I think the metaphore "wildflower" describes love in its purest form (therefore being "wild"). The song is about the consequences love can have on your life, e.g. love can suddenly turn your life upside down to the point where nothing else matters ("everything I know just fades away").
Moreover, Sheryl Crow creates some beautiful pictures describing this relationship of love:
"Here we are Burning faster than the cursed star" and
"You will find me standing on the hill Waiting for you with my arms stretched open wide"

Best Lines:
"And where the wildflower grows it picks its space
And that's the way it is when nature plays its lovely hand
We'll understand everything"

Amos Lee – I'm not myself Lyrics 12 years ago
The meaning of this song is pretty obvious: It's about a guy that loves a woman, but he knows he has to end their reationship, as he feels he's "not myself when I'm with you".
Best line: Does anybody have a clue How hard I worked at loving you.

IMHO Amos's best song, simply gorgeous.

Scissor Sisters – Laura Lyrics 12 years ago
Amyliscious, that woman "dead as fuck" is Laura Palmer from the ever so fabulous TV show TWIN PEAKS, at least that's what the band said at the Brighton Dome Concert:

"This next song is a story. Composed about a lady. Who existed over the rainbow. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. Two doors down from 10 Downing Street.
And she was very beautiful.
Very beautiful! Prom queen, as a matter of fact. Of Twin Peaks High School.
But one fine day, she washed up on the shores of the Pacific-North-West, dead-as-fuck
...wrapped in plastic....
Her name...was Laura."

But I seriously have no clue about the connection of the character Laura Palmer to the lyrics of "Laura". Maybe the Scissor Sisters wanted to create a mystery, just like the show was. I don't know...

Pink – Eventually Lyrics 12 years ago
"So what good am I to you
If I can't be broken
You'll get yours, yes
You'll get yours eventually"

Perfect closing lines to this amazing song.

Moby – Slipping Away Lyrics 12 years ago
Not only are there two lines missing, there are also some minor mistakes in the lyrics.

Concerning the meaning of the song, I guess it tells us to just appreciate life as it is and live it to the fullest instead of always worrying about certain things or worse, letting it turn into monotony.
At least that's what I get from this beautiful song, and it's an wonderful message.
Also have to say I love the video clip of this song - so gorgeous...

Tori Amos – Playboy Mommy Lyrics 12 years ago
"I'll say it loud here by your grave, those angels can't ever take my place."

I suppose this is a line every woman that has dealt with miscarriage can identify with. It speaks volumes: 'Why did you leave me? You will never find a better mother!'

Truly one of the best songs I have ever heard, makes me cry every single time I listen to it.

Tori Amos – Enjoy the Silence (Depeche Mode cover) Lyrics 12 years ago
Almost as good as the original version. And I'm pretty sure Tori sings
"Words are meaningless
And UNforgettable" in her song.

Emiliana Torrini – Gollum's Song Lyrics 12 years ago
It's a real shame this song and the great Emiliana Torrini got ignored at the Oscars!
I love how Gollum starts out kind of sad and desperate and slowly turns more angry and determined towards the end.

Emiliana Torrini – Easy Lyrics 12 years ago
I can't believe no one else has commented on this fabulous song. I think "Easy" is about a woman that realizes her true and deep feelings about a person she maybe was only fooling around with. Therefore she wants him to "put your toys away" and stop taking their relationship easy, as it has turned into something more serious.
Emiliana's voice is simply gorgeous.

Tori Amos – A Sorta Fairytale Lyrics 12 years ago
This amazing song talks about a road trip a couple takes. The story concentrates on their happy days spent together, as well as their realization that they need to break up as they do no longer belong with eath other.
Favorite lines:
i put the hood
right back where
you could taste heaven
perfectly
feel out the summer breeze
didn't know when we'd be back
and i, i don't
didn't think
we'd end up like
like this

Gentleman – Intoxication Lyrics 12 years ago
This is definitely one of the best songs of '05. It's so full of love it's almost unbearable, but I love,love,love it.

Sarah McLachlan – Do What You Have To Do Lyrics 12 years ago
This is one of the saddest songs I have ever heard.
The line "deep within I'm shaken by the violence of existing for only you" makes me go through emotions I can't even begin to describe.

It takes a true genius to write such a song.

Nelly Furtado – Try Lyrics 12 years ago
This song clearly includes two different layers.

At the beginning, the first 2 stanzas, Nelly is talking about how she has become wiser than when she was a kid and dreamed about how great life is in general.
She now realizes that people can be fake and mean and "really not real at all". This knowledge confuses her ("the more I grow, the less I know"), she slowly loses the ability to deal with life ("the more I see, the less I grow").
As a conclusion she burries all the images she created as a kid ("say goodbye to the way of life...") for they are now useless to her.

The chorus tells us another layer:
The song has slowly turned into a description of a relationship. The first time she sings about him "wanting more" from her, we get the feeling she is sad about the situation, as she is unable to fulfill his wishes, she feels she is not enough for him.
During the rest of the song, the mood clearly changes:
The last part shows how she realizes she can try and try and she will never achieve whatever he wants from her, but this knowledge does not destroy her.
In fact, it helps her recognize who she is and that they both are imperfect. During the climax of the music she finds relief, as she now knows they both will never be perfect, and that makes them beautiful together. In their relationship they can both be who they truly are:
"All of the things we want each other to be, we never will be
And that's wonderful, and that's life
And that's you, baby,This is me, baby
And we are, we are, we are, we are
Free In our love"

Amazing how wise Nelly sounds at such a young age.
This song is ingenious.

Nelly Furtado – Picture Perfect Lyrics 12 years ago
My god, this song is one of my all time favourites, the story of my young life.
"Please take me away, i don't want to stay
And I want to see everything the world has to offer me
I want to show everything I have to offer it now"

Nelly Furtado – Onde Estás Lyrics 12 years ago
This song is unbelievably gorgeous. It makes me wanna take a holiday in Portugal and dance on the beach and cry at the same time.
I love this song cause it's so unique and exotic and melancholic.

Nelly Furtado – Childhood Dreams Lyrics 12 years ago
"You are the realest thing I know....hands down."
The simplest, purest declaration of love I could possibly think of.

Nelly is way too talented for her age, she truely amazes me.

Katie Melua – Belfast Lyrics 12 years ago
The chorus of this song is so pretty.
"It's about being able to fly, it's about dying nine times"

Her voice during that part makes me fly and die nine times at the same time... Great song.

Imogen Heap – Come Here Boy Lyrics 12 years ago
"Come here Boy" is indeed a very steamy song, makes me go all tingly.
Moreover, it reminds me so much of the fantastic Tori Amos, especially during the chorus and near the end when it gets so intense.

Jude – I Know Lyrics 12 years ago
I can't believe there are only 3 (now 4) comments on this breathtaking song. The meaning of it is quite obvious:
The singer tries to convince a loved one to overcome the doubts she/he has about herself/himself and stop hiding behind a facade.
I love the line "Your best friend in life is not your mirror" because it's so simple and naive, yet so true.
The way Jude sings the song fits perfectly into the whole uncertainty theme of it: Very vulnerable, fragile and desperate, yet determined.
What can I say? To me this song is a masterpiece.

Damien Rice – I Remember Lyrics 12 years ago
"I remember it well
the first time that I saw
your head round the door
as mine stopped working"
Could there be a better description of love at first sight?
"And your mouth, your mouth, your mouth....."
This song is sexy!

Damien Rice – Delicate Lyrics 12 years ago
Anyone who has ever had an affair or secret relationship can relate to this extraordinarily beautiful song. I sure can, this song is my favourite of the genius that is Damien Rice.
One of the reasons I love it so much is the fact that Damien includes all the nerve-wracking emotions you go through when having an affair. Especially the uncertainty of the one person that begins to want more, something more stable and less fragile. In this song that person demands that kind of change for the lovers, but the other one isn't willing for commitment.
Oh yes, been there....

Coldplay – What If Lyrics 12 years ago
I love the line "What if there was no time and no reason, or rhyme".
It's so simple but it just flows so beautifully.

I can't even try to describe all the emotions this particular song makes me feel... This song is definitely one of Coldplay's best.

Coldplay – Easy to Please Lyrics 12 years ago
I'm with Lemonhead on this one. He hopes that they are going to grow old and that he's going to find a way, but he instantly realizes that it won't happen. Therefore he desperately tries to convince his girl that he's easy to please in order to make her stay.
Quite a sad song, but so damn beautiful...

That's right, it is originally sung by Herbert Grönemeyer, but Xavier Naidoo did his own (amazing!!) rendition of Flugzeuge im Bauch.
