Kate Nash – Don't You Want to Share the Guilt? Lyrics 9 years ago
I thought this was about a partner (or maybe friend) who self harms. but I guess the OCD and abusive relationship thing make more sense.

Ellie Goulding – Under the Sheets Lyrics 9 years ago
Also, this and Salt Skin are my favourites off the album!

Ellie Goulding – Under the Sheets Lyrics 9 years ago
I think this is a relationship that she thought was different and better but it turns out its just the same as all the others. The relationship is in trouble ("we're in a mess babe, we're in a mess and you more is less"). She knows she should get out but then he sweet talks her into bed and everything is perfect then, but she knows its all false ("in our house made of paper, your words all over me"), she wants to hod onto this feeling ("In here the world won't bring us down, our plan is golden, out there a lonely girl could drown, in here we're frozen").

Ultimately she knows she needs to let go but it hurts too much to walk away, even though it hurts a lot to stay too ("we're under the sheets and you're killing me")

Imogen Heap – Speeding Cars Lyrics 10 years ago
yeah, I'm also gonna add that the second verse reminds me of someone cheating as well because "sleeping dogs lie, never far enough away, glistening in the cold sweat of guilt" Like he slept with someone else they both knew... sex = sweat. I don't know.

Imogen Heap – Speeding Cars Lyrics 10 years ago
I am almost 100% sure it is violins judging by the accent, and i think it goes with the rest of the song more than violence.

I think it is to an ex, a cheating lover. Someone who hurt her in the past and she's saying that its ok because they just did it because they were on a self destruct mode. Its all in the past and that person still means a lot to her.

Tegan and Sara – I Won't Be Left Lyrics 10 years ago
i agree, it reminds me of how i feel about my recent break up, there is a glimmer of hope that we may sort things out... the first first reminds me of us because when we were going throuhg a rough patch he told me he felt like i was saying all my problems were his fault
"i won't mistake you
for problems with me
i won't let my moods
ruin this you'll see"

and then the last verse because of:
"i won't get mad when you say
things are getting too hard
i won't make all of your love
so scared to come through our yard"

we broke up because he thought it was too hard and we couldnt seem to stay happy for long.

The Smashing Pumpkins – Love Lyrics 10 years ago
my ex says this song reminds him of us at the moment, we still sleep together, I think we still feel love for each other but our relationship has deteriorated. Basically the sex is what makes the whole sorry situation bearable. So yeah, I think its about a sexual relationship to ease the pain of a lack of a emotional one

The Ting Tings – Shut Up and Let Me Go Lyrics 10 years ago
Now oh so easily you're over me
Gone is love it's you that aught to be
Holding me, I'm not containable
This time love is not sustainable

and then

Now oh so easily you're over me
Gone is love it's me that ought to be
Moving on you're not adorable
I want something un-ignorable

Just the exact way the mind goes after the break up... loving it at the moment post break up

Mayday Parade – Miserable at Best Lyrics 10 years ago
"i get the point that I should leave you alone but we both know that I'm not that strong"

I love that bit, I just broke up with my boyfriend and that whole bit is just exactly how I feel. In fact the whole song is.

"The hardest part is letting go of the nights we shared"

Fall Out Boy – This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race (Remix) Lyrics 12 years ago
Lupe's verse is amazing!

Arctic Monkeys – 505 Lyrics 12 years ago
i was gonna read all the comments but my internet hates me tonight so! It seems that the relationship is heading towards teh end but he still really loves her and basically even though they seem to constantly fight when theya re together he would still do anything to get back to see her.

Also i think the hands between your thighs isn't meant to be sexual... I lie like that when i am cold... could be a nod towards the fact she has to live on her own in this hotel room while he is touring.

Guillemots – Cats Eyes Lyrics 12 years ago
And I’m
Dying for you each day
You were the meaning of true
How did I ever lose you?

this song is just so beautiful.

Mumm-ra – There She Is Lyrics 12 years ago
this is a beautiful song

Muse – Easily Lyrics 12 years ago
boy feels girl is too good for him/using him as a confidence boost to offload on. Then she changes and leaves him?

Jimmy Eat World – For Me This Is Heaven Lyrics 12 years ago
i always took "the first star I see may not be a star" to be firstly star gazing with someone and using it as an excuse to stay with them longer but also, a sort of way of saying you thought that person was the one for you but you were mistaken

Snow Patrol – We Can Run Away Now, They're All Dead And Gone Lyrics 12 years ago
"But you are all I really want in this life
You could be the summer rain on my face"

BEAUTIFUL! i love it, its a brilliant song, about sticking together I think, and trusting each other instead of listening to what other people have to say about your relationship.

Also i am positive it is right hand not right hip

The Dykeenies – Pick You Up Lyrics 12 years ago
"you ask me do i feel alright? could I pick you up? and its here we stay" - makes me smile.

I prefer the acoustic version though

Placebo – Post Blue Lyrics 12 years ago
i am inclined to go with the post "blue" being depression. It could also be post blue as in she's had a scare for example turned blue, like a dead person, been in the hospital and this is him begging her to give it up "down on my bended knees" "I'd break the back of love for you"

Idlewild – No Emotion Lyrics 12 years ago
i totally agree with the idea that it about putting up walls. The verses seem to be about never revealing who you truly are... and then the chorus.... "whatever we say we show no emotion"

Idlewild – Everyone Says You're So Fragile Lyrics 12 years ago
no idea what it means... but I love the song... love shouting "no no i'm agile and everyone says that your're so fragile."

Definitely Idlewild's best album

Jimmy Eat World – Let It Happen Lyrics 12 years ago
I agree that the album doesn't live up to the complexity of Futures or Stay on My Side Tonight, which were both AMAZING. But after a few listens this album has really grown on me.... Love Big Casino and Chase This Light

Biffy Clyro – All the Way Down: Prologue/Chapter 1 Lyrics 12 years ago
i get the falling in love side not really anything religious. Its beautiful anyway, my favourite biffy by far

Biffy Clyro – Machines Lyrics 12 years ago
it was superb last night. Simon played acoustic and everyone in the crowd sang the take the pieces part between "ive started falling apart..." it was beautiful

Dashboard Confessional – Vindicated Lyrics 12 years ago
i don't really know if its about breaking up... I think its more the breaking down of a relationship and he has been closed off and confused and unable to give more because he has such low self esteem and little faith in himself and this song is sort of the turning point, where he realises that he has been in the wrong and he has been the one who has messed everything up but he realises now that he IS more than he thought he was and he hopes to be able to reconcile the relationship

Brand New – The Archers Bows Have Broken Lyrics 12 years ago
i dont really get an anti bush feel from the song. Mine is more that the first part is maybe a strongly religious person judging him for perhaps rebuking a traditional method of being religious, saying he believes in nothing and is just being a bit rebellious.

Then the verses are like him saying I do believe in God I just dont agree with your organised religion.

I especially like the bits "you're beating with a book everyone that book tells you to love" and "The God I believe in never worked on a campaign trail" - reminds me of the christians in the street who bombard you with flyers... flyers for God... honestly.

although i hear "you barely joyous/enjoy this broken thing" rather than "you barely see, you're this broken thing"

Brand New – Not the Sun Lyrics 12 years ago
Whoever said this...."Please make the technology, So I can turn up your love like some machine.",
I totally believe thats what it is too, well apart from having some debate about up possibly being off.

Although I always thought it was be my babe, since bait sounds a bit odd, bait for what? that would indicate there is like a third person in the song? and doesnt really explain the scraps bit.

actually now i think of it I'm pretty sure it says "so i can turn off your love" since that makes sense with teh next verse being, "don't feed me scraps from your bed, I won't be the stray coming back just to be fed."

I think this song has a pretty confused meaning for me. Some of it I think is a bit she likes him but he is just using her and other bits like "you say your my friend but why won't you be my family make it seem the other way round.

Fall Out Boy – My Heart Is the Worst Kind of Weapon Lyrics 12 years ago
favourite line of the song
"your remorse hasn't fallen on deaf ears
rather ones that just don't care" :D in fact that whole verse is just great.

I love this song, gets stuck in my head everytime I hear it, such a great "f*uck you, you cheated on me" song

Bloc Party – Sunday Lyrics 12 years ago
I love this song! its such a beautiful sentiment. Plus I love when they do it live... two drumkits. Amazing.

Yeah I like the first part best because it perfectly explains lazy hung over days with your other half.

Arctic Monkeys – Fluorescent Adolescent Lyrics 12 years ago
wow i always thought it was remember when YOU used to be a rascal.... I just think its about someone being middle aged and bored with her hum drum married life remembering her teens and early twenties when she used to have sex all over the place with promiscuous boys hehe.

Placebo – Bigmouth Strikes Again (The Smiths cover) Lyrics 12 years ago
i agree, on the whole i prefer the smiths... but the lyrics are slightly different in this cover and sometimes... you just gotta have placebo... the voice! the sarcasm! the style!

Placebo – Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush cover) Lyrics 12 years ago
this is so odd since i originally came to these lyrics after being on the biffy ones and someone saying that they'd have Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies (i think it was?) as their funeral song and I said I'd have this... because to me this song is about somebody you love dying... although there are suggestions that its about sex and other things... i guess whats important with ambiguous lyrics is what they mean to you.... second verse absolutely kills me:

You don't want to hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware that I'm tearing you asunder.
There is thunder in our hearts, baby.
So much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we?

Biffy Clyro – Living Is a Problem Because Everything Dies Lyrics 12 years ago
yeah i agree its about not wanting to waste your life but i also see it as a pretty angry song... like he's angry at God.

Del Amitri – Tell Her This Lyrics 12 years ago
del amitri remind me of my dad. Anyways Justin Currie sings it so beautifully and i saw him on my birthday a couple years ago and he sung this. its my favourite song by them and my sister went to the outsider festival last month and called me when it was on.

Its so beautiful... always makes me want to cry because I think its about someone not being able to open up in a relationship (which i can REALLY relate to) and realising its costing him his relationship and this is sort of his last ditch attempt to keep her.

Modest Mouse – The Good Times Are Killing Me Lyrics 12 years ago
its a comedown song for me cos this is what the guys would always put on when everyone was coming down... and everyone vows not to do it again.. hmm. Its a good song. And true.

Imogen Heap – Clear the Area Lyrics 12 years ago
i think this is about a bad experience on drugs, cos it reminds me of how my best friend spoke to me when i passed out on pills, especially this bit: "Slowly, darling
Nobody means any more to me than you
If you're in, baby then I'm in (into this)
With you always
Careful, close to the edge (you're scaring me)
Fall into my arms (where did it all fall)
Fall into love (love)

Brand New – Limousine Lyrics 12 years ago
i don't know a lot about the bible and that but i thought there were 12 diciples. Although 7 is a big thing in the bible apparently.

I'm still going with the whole her being 7 when she died theory.

Placebo – Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush cover) Lyrics 12 years ago
kimbubly what is wrong with people hearing it through the OC as long as they hear it? Beautiful song totally grips hold of you. makes my insides somersault... especially when you hear them play it as a closer at festivals... outside with a bunch of other music lvoers... beautiful.

I prefer this to the original but to say it is better is... wrong i think. Since obviously placebo must have heard and loved the original to want to cover it... and if it wasnt FOR the original being written and recorded we would never have the wonderful cover!

Biffy Clyro – Living Is a Problem Because Everything Dies Lyrics 12 years ago
i want placebos cover of Running Up That Hill for my funeral.

Anyway, i love this song, the intro on the album is immense, since on the radio they start with the choir. One of my faves off of puzzle i reckon, along with Machines... he really has written some beautiful words using his mother as inspiration.

Jimmy Eat World – When I Want Lyrics 12 years ago
don't really think its one night stands, its more two people who are just sleeping together and then she has started to ask what is happening between them and trying to make a relationship out of it and he just wants to keep things the way they are, Oh, how i can relate lol

Snow Patrol – Signal Fire Lyrics 12 years ago
i loved spiderman 3 too, the video for this is pretty damn cute. And i agree with pirateofcolorado, its definitely "i could be stuck here for a thousand years without your arms to drag me out"

also snowsheep it is definitely NOT "i won't wait for ever" it IS "i don't wanna wait for ever"... just really jumvled together

The Sunshine Underground – Borders Lyrics 12 years ago
I think the song is basically this guy has tried to have a relationship with this girl but its got to the stage where they should be close and he doesn't feel he can ever really get close to her because she keeps her borders up.

Its him trying to explain that some people have it worse off and she can't cling onto her past and keep shutting people out. The last verse thing, I think is him saying that he has to say it because otherwise they will just be tip toeing round the subject and he just wants to let her know because he wants to help her lower her borders and let him in. And the end bit is him giving up, he believes that she never cared and thats why she wouldn't let him know her better.

Fall Out Boy – G.I.N.A.S.F.S. Lyrics 13 years ago
*WISHES he could write like Panic!

Fall Out Boy – G.I.N.A.S.F.S. Lyrics 13 years ago
rust3dxh3art i read choke a while ago so i may be missing something important here, but i don't see any relevance. is this just cos Pete always says he could write like Panic! at the disco, who could possibly write a whole album based on things Chuck Palahnuik has written, in fact i think they already have.

Brand New – The No Seatbelt Song Lyrics 13 years ago
I think this song is about having a relationship with someone where you are totally smitten and giving everything to it but you know that the other person doesn't feel as much for you.

I love the bit "i'm here for you to use broken and bruised, do you understand?" its basically like him saying i'm giving you everything and even though you are breaking my heart by not feeling the same i still want to be with you because there is no one else for me

Jimmy Eat World – Just Tonight... Lyrics 13 years ago
by thebutcheress on 02-08-2006 @ 07:42:40 PM
This song reminded me of a relationship where I had an ex, who became a fuck-buddy. Everytime we met up it was wild, crazy, passionate sex but afterward I felt like a whore. And I would promise myself that tonight was the last night with him, but as soon as he made a move It started up again. Hence like in the song "Never again, Just tonight. ok."

ok you have just described exactly how things were with me and what the song means to me

Jimmy Eat World – Just Tonight... Lyrics 13 years ago
oooh another song i relate to, shame its all the same guy lol!

ummm its about sex, having "meaningless" sex with a friend and promising it won't happen again but it always does. One of them wants something more so its putting strain on everything and they'll never be able to be the way they were as friends before the sex.... pretty much what everyone else said

Jimmy Eat World – Over Lyrics 13 years ago
yes, i can relate, it is the worst feeling. Especially when you are still trying to kid yourself.

its self explanatory really, he's clinging to anything that makes him feel they are still together and happy but he really knows that its all over

Jimmy Eat World – Drugs Or Me Lyrics 13 years ago
yes i have heard the styrofoam remix, hated it at first but i was told it would grow on me, and it really does, makes you feel calm.

Jimmy Eat World – Drugs Or Me Lyrics 13 years ago
i love this song, i had a relationship that got really screwed up because of dealing and addiction and we ended up just... hating each other but this song really reminds me of him and how hard it was, because you are watching someone you really care about mess themselves up. so many jimmy songs i can personally relate to.

also someone said it reminded them of an alcoholic parent and i can also relate to that, its hard watching anyone you care about ruin themselves and even worse when you know nothing you can say will help

The Reindeer Section – Sting Lyrics 13 years ago
see i think of it in a different way. That there is a relationship but he is not happy with it and so is irritated by everything she does but he is too scared to let her know how he feels. Almost like she latches on to him and he can't stand it
