Black Sabbath – Country Girl Lyrics 9 years ago
After almost 15 years of listening to this song, I JUST NOW got the innuendo in the title. Dio, you are one cunning linguist!

The Everly Brothers – Let It Be Me Lyrics 9 years ago
I know this song is supposed to a happy love song, but I've always heard a sense of desperation in the lyrics.

The Everly Brothers – That's Old Fashioned (That's the Way Love Should Be) Lyrics 9 years ago
This is my view on love. Relationships should be developed slowly. Today, people just jump into bed together as soon as they meet and it kills the spirit of romance. I guess I'm just an old soul and a hopeless romantic.

Eluveitie – Luxtos Lyrics 9 years ago
This song is awesome

Sonata Arctica – Cinderblox Lyrics 9 years ago
I was about to scoff at the jailbait comments, but I think there might be something to it. The narrator is most certainly in jail and says he wants to go back to "you". Yet things are phrased in ways that make it seems like she's the reason he's in there, and when he gets out he will do the things that put him there in the first place.

Queensrÿche – I Remember Now Lyrics 13 years ago
I really think it should be "bizzare MURDERS of political and religious leaders...". That would make a lot more sense in context of not only the news report, but the entire Mindcrime story.

Sonata Arctica – Mary-Lou Lyrics 13 years ago
It should also be "A tear in her eye" not "In junior high".

Avantasia – The Looking Glass Lyrics 13 years ago
Amazing song. I love Bob Catley's voice.

Jacob's Dream – The Gathering Lyrics 13 years ago
Looks like a song about the apocalypse. The Biblical apocalypse that is, what with references to "Sacred fires burning" and "Masters' jealousy fury" with "Master's" capitalized.

Jacob's Dream – Sarah Williams Lyrics 13 years ago
Self-explanatory, but the lyrics are about a girl that the author apparently killed in a drunk driving accident. I don't know if this is a true story or not.

Gamma Ray – Time To Break Free Lyrics 13 years ago
Agreed. This song rocks and is one of Gamma Ray's most underrated ever. Michael Kiske vocal cameo was awesome as well.

Helloween – A Tale That Wasn't Right Lyrics 14 years ago
Sounds like his girl is cheating on him with his friend. "Thanks to you, my dear old friend, but you can't help..."

Helloween – We Burn Lyrics 14 years ago
The stutter on "G-g-generations" seems like it may be an homage to The Who as they do that in the song "My Generation"

Venom – At War With Satan Lyrics 14 years ago
The Hell...? These don't look like the lyrics to me.

Axel Rudi Pell – Call Her Princess Lyrics 14 years ago
Now that I think of it, she might also be a stripper.

Queensrÿche – I Don't Believe In Love Lyrics 14 years ago
No it wasn't. She was brainwashed by Dr. X to kill herself.

Sonata Arctica – The Misery Lyrics 14 years ago
It would seem to make more sense if it were BY a pen rather than TO a pen. Ex: "I write the lines you want me to..."

Wolfsbane – Kathy Wilson Lyrics 14 years ago
Great song

Ayreon – Day Ten: Memories Lyrics 14 years ago
"Do you recall that day
You proposed to me, and fell down to your knees
You didn’t know what to say
So she knelt down too for she thought you’d lost your keys!"

This is another one of those things I can see happening to me.

Sonata Arctica – Weballergy Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with Ninji-X, although I think it is more Internet porn than just online dating.

Sonata Arctica – Tallulah Lyrics 14 years ago
Absolutely beautiful song.

"I lost my patience once, so do you punish me now" - he broke up with her because he couldn't wait for her to break up with him. And now it seems (to him anyway) that she's not agreeing to get back together because of that.

Sonata Arctica – Shamandalie Lyrics 14 years ago
Classic story. Friendship turns to love, love fades away, friendship is gone. At the end of it all, he just wants his friend back. (Can you forgive me?/The love got better off me).

Sonata Arctica – Paid in Full Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is more about the healing process after breakup than the actual pain and heartache.

He says "I need you less and less every day", and goes from having a hard time loving himself to having a hard time hating himself.

Sonata Arctica – Mary-Lou Lyrics 14 years ago
I don't get the combination of lines:

"Sunshine or rain, it's all the same
Life isn't grey..."

Individually, both can be (and have been) interpreted, but when combined they create a sort of paradox. If "life isn't grey" means either to see things as black and/or white, or that life is not sad/melancholy/etc, then why would sunshine and rain be "all the same"?

Sonata Arctica – Letter To Dana Lyrics 14 years ago
~ I think it was likely also literal, as the day he died on was a nice day. ~

At the time this song came out I'd buy the literal interpretation. But 4 albums later, their lyrics are far too poetic and metaphorical to be taken at face value.

~The lie he's telling is that he no longer loves her.~

The lie is that "I'd wait for you forever", but since Dana has someone else ("someone else is holding you"), he has no choice but to move on.

Sonata Arctica – Draw Me Lyrics 14 years ago
~Tony said in an interview once: "My friend's dad used to draw when he was younger and he drew a big painting of his own father and soon after that his father died. Then he drew his own brother and shortly after he also died. After this he decided he will never draw again - he just won't. "~

They're playing this live on their current trip through the U.S. with Nightwish. At the show in Worcester, MA, Tony introduced this song by saying essentially what SeppoIlmarinen quoted him as saying. Followed by "True story."

Axel Rudi Pell – Snake Eyes Lyrics 14 years ago
The heavy metal equivalent to Barry White

Axel Rudi Pell – Call Her Princess Lyrics 14 years ago
Straightforward lyrics: hot girl loves sex.

Nightwish – Master Passion Greed Lyrics 14 years ago
"what does writing black metal lyrics have to do with anything? And what are black metal lyrics anyway?"

Black metal lyrics are lyrics to a black metal song. They often describe feasting on the corpse of someone you raped and killed. It was more of a sarcastic remark on my part than any substantial analysis.

Helloween – First Time Lyrics 14 years ago
Pretty obvious, if I do say so myself.

Helloween – Step Out of Hell Lyrics 14 years ago
He's trying to help someone who has a drug/alcohol problem

Edguy – Out of Vogue Lyrics 14 years ago
It's a shot a the masses as they mindlessly follow the latest trends.

Warrant – Uncle Tom's Cabin Lyrics 14 years ago
All these years I thought this song was by Skid Row. It blew my mind when I found out this was actually Warrant. It just seems too heavy to be done by the same band that produced "Cherry Pie".

Freedom Call – United Alliance Lyrics 14 years ago
Looks like Freedom Call is trying out their new Manowar impression.

Nightwish – Come Cover Me Lyrics 14 years ago
There's a certain sense of longing or desperation in the words, so tend to think this is about unrequited love.

Korpiklaani – Old Tale Lyrics 15 years ago
This song is catchy as hell, but seems kinda sad once you read the lyrics...

Nightwish – Master Passion Greed Lyrics 15 years ago
"Seek her
Seduce her
Tame her
Blame her
Have her
Kill her
Feast on it all"

Tuomas' attempt at writing black metal lyrics.

Nightwish – The Kinslayer (feat. Ike Vil) Lyrics 15 years ago
I think all metalheads can empathize with the killers of Columbine, at least a little. There isn't one of us who hasn't been the subject of some sort of bullying by jocks. And there isn't one of who hasn't dreamed about some type of vengeance/revenge on them(deny it all you want), whether it's just telling them off, punching one, or something more grandiose, like what the Redeemers planned.

Nightwish – Know Why The Nightingale Sings Lyrics 15 years ago
The song is about Tuomas finally being able to make music and to write "poems" as he calls them. It sounds like the view from someone writing for the first time who takes "a step to a world unbound/Spinning my fantasies all around". Knowing why the nightingale sings is like knowing why the writer writes.

Nightwish – Ever Dream Lyrics 15 years ago
Brilliant song. It's about confronting the person you love to find out if they feel or ever felt the same way about you.

Nightwish – Dead Boy's Poem (feat. Sam Hardwick) Lyrics 15 years ago
This is an absolutely beautiful song, whatever it means.

Bruce Dickinson – Dive! Dive! Dive! Lyrics 15 years ago
I'll take Gratuitous Sexual Innuendo for $100, Alex.

Bruce Dickinson – 1000 Points of Light Lyrics 15 years ago
Great song. Sounds to me like a commentary on war, specifically how people (especially politicians) don't seem to care about those who died and asking if it's really worth it.

Bruce Dickinson – Born in '58 Lyrics 15 years ago
Bad Bruce Dickinson song? This? No way! The earlier solo albums are filled with like this that break the trend of what he was doing in Maiden and I think that adds to their charm.

Bruce Dickinson – Taking The Queen Lyrics 15 years ago
Bruce describes this as a "twisted fairy tale" on...I don't remember if it's the Anthology DVD or the "The Voice of Crube" track on his "Best of..." CD.

Helloween – In The Middle Of A Heartbeat Lyrics 15 years ago
It's about a love that's starting to fall apart.

Helloween – Gorgar Lyrics 15 years ago
Gorgar is indeed a pinball machine. Google it for more info.

Iced Earth – Declaration Day Lyrics 15 years ago
The song is about the Declaration of Independence and the American Revolution. This is not opinion. References to the phrase "give me liberty or give me death" and to King George should make that obvious.

KISS – Every Time I Look At You Lyrics 15 years ago
Beautiful ballad. Lyrics are pretty straightforward.

Laughing Colors – War on Drugs Lyrics 15 years ago
"What ever happened to sex, drugs, and rock and roll?
Now we just have AIDS, crack, and techno"

While I'm not a big fan of this band, the line above is so true I just had to post here.
