Weezer – Only in Dreams Lyrics 9 years ago
This entire song is about dreams of a girl the narrator has a crush on but can't have.

- The first verse is about how much he likes her
- The second verse begins a "dream," in which the narrator dances with the girl.
- The main chorus is the narrator lamenting upon waking up that none of it is real.
- The "only in dreams!" part is him releasing this frustration.
- I believe the cascading guitar riff being played over the bass line and quieting drum following this section is the narrator falling asleep and beginning to dream again.

- And finally, I had the realization the other day that the build-up/crescendo represents this last dream, in which this time the narrator and the girl have sex, building up tension to the orgasm and finish at the end which is the final guitar solo. The fadeout and concluding bass line is the narrator sadly waking up from the end of this sex dream, again realizing that it isn't real.

Blew my mind that I never thought of that before. The build up is totally about sex.

Matthew Sweet – Get Older Lyrics 9 years ago
Same. I think this song is basically just telling young people to stop spending so much time worrying about their future and to enjoy the present ("you'll be glad when you get older that you were happy for today"). It's similar to the Ferris Bueller quote: "Life goes by pretty fast. If you don't stop to look around once and a while, you could miss it."

Sweet says it doesn't matter if you don't know what you want to be when you're grown up, or if you don't know what you ultimately want to do with your life. That will all work itself out eventually, so you should stop to enjoy your present situation in life because you will not be able to go back to it. I wish I had found this song earlier, because the "you'll be glad when you get older that you were happy for today" would have been my senior quote. It's so true, people these days are so overworked and overstressed because there is so much pressure on them to be overachievers. Do what feels right to you, everything will be fine in the end.

Oasis – Some Might Say Lyrics 9 years ago
Great song, but like a lot of Oasis songs, the lyrics are pretty meaningless. That's not a bad thing, but it's true.

Big Star – In The Street Lyrics 10 years ago
i think the second chorus was obviously taken out of the 70's show theme song because no TV network is going to air a theme song promoting pot. it is stupid since the show has tons of scenes where they are smoking it, even though they don't actually show it

great song

Carbon Leaf – Changeless Lyrics 10 years ago
I think the "if you need rest, I'll keep your nest changeless" part means that the speaker will always be willing to go back to the past/home and resume the friendship whenever his friends want to, if it is possible. He'll keep what they had exactly the way they left it, and if they ever want a break from their current lives and are looking for a nostalgic return, they can always come back. True friendship is eternal.

Carbon Leaf – Changeless Lyrics 10 years ago
God damn this song makes parts of me inside really sad. It really is hard to believe that I'm already through high school and halfway done with college, and aside from a few isolated events, I'll never see most of my friends from the two places ever again after graduation. Of course, we'll all make new friends after losing our current ones, but it's always so hard to let go of what you've had for so long in exchange for the uncertainty the future brings. This is best song I've ever heard covering the "graduation/splitting up theme"- it does it without resorting to cheesy lyrics, and instead does an incredible job of capturing the emotion of that moment with the ever-present, droning bass line that underscores the entire song and smart lyrics. Well done, Carbon Leaf.

Weezer – Pig Lyrics 11 years ago
On the version that's on the Red Album, they added a really cool touch by putting a lone snare drum hit to symbolize the gunshot that kills the pig after the last "i played with my friends in the mud" line, right as it goes quiet for a moment

This song is awesome. The more I listen to it, the more I think it is the best song they have put out on any album since Pinkerton.

Weezer – I Just Threw Out The Love Of My Dreams Lyrics 11 years ago
i had a lot of typos in that post, sorry:

Fixed:
You people who say this song is about Rivers being bi are WAY off. This was written as part of Weezer's unreleased rock opera "Songs from the Black Hole," which had both male and female characters in it. This song was intended for one of the girl parts of that.

I was sold on this song after I heard the first verse, it's great. And yes, it is about trying to talk to a drug addict about his habit (father to son?).

I never thought the lyrics were anything really special, it's just that last 4-5 minute buildup and solo that does it for me; that 4-5 minutes of simply just music is just awesome.

Blink-182 – Adam's Song Lyrics 13 years ago
This song seems like to me its about a kid who almost commits suicide but never actually goes through with it because he realizes that things will get better. Either that or else the last chorus is him in heaven after he did it, I can't tell.

The Offspring – The Kids Aren't Alright Lyrics 13 years ago
This song reminds me of a couple friends of mine who started smoking a ton of weed in high school. I wouldn't have really cared, except for the fact that they let it completely take over their lives and let it wreck any chance they had of getting into any college and actually doing something with their lives other than moving downtown to start dealing themselves. It's a shame, really. They were both pretty smart, too.

This is the pinnacle of modern rock. I have yet to hear another song from 1990+ that is as original and good as this is.
