Frank Black – Everything Is New Lyrics 15 years ago
Definitions and References:
Chesney [first verse]
Chesney "Chet" Baker born 1929, famous West coast Jazz musician who started playing trumpet aged twelve after giving up trombone. He played throughout school and college, and when drafted into the army in 1946 he joined the army band in Berlin. In 1953 he formed the Chet Baker Quartet and achieved great success in the fifties before becoming addicted to heroin. Chet baker died on May 13 1998 falling out of a second story window from his hotel room in Amsterdam.

Club Down at Hermosa Strand
The lighthouse club located at 30 Pier ave, Hermosa Beach CA. This Jazz club opened in the 1940's and gained popularity when Howard Rumsey convinced the then owner to let him play and "Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars" brought Jazz to Hermosa beach. The Lighthouse club was a well known venue for Jazz musicians. The Lighthouse Cafe as it is now known still features live music, but from a broader spectrum.

Hiram, John, Billy Jean [entire second verse]
Hiram Williams, better known as Hank Williams, is considered the father of contemporary country music. He met 19-year old Billie Jean Jones in the fall of 1952 and the couple married that October. John, or Johnny Horton, another early country star, met Hank Williams in 1952 when Williams rejoined the Lousiana Hayride, a weekly live radio show broadcasting out of Shreveport, Louisiana. Williams became a sort of mentor for Horton. Hank Williams died on January 1, 1953 in the back of Cadillac on his way to a concert. After his death, Horton became close to Williams' widow, and in September 1953, Billie Jean and Johnny Horton married. On November 4, 1960, Horton was involved in an auto accident and died on his way to the hospital, suffering an almost similar and just as tragic death as Williams.

Skyline
The Skyline Club of Austin, TX, which opened in 1948. Through a strange twist of events, the Skyline became the location for the final concerts of both Hank Williams and Johnny Horton. On January 1, 1953, Williams died in his sleep in the back of a car while being transported between gigs. Horton died when his car was struck by a drunk driver after his gig at the Skyline on November 4, 1960.

I had a girl stalk me a few years ago. We started as friends, but it degenerated quickly. It wasn't fun and this song reminds me of her. =(
Great song though!

Elvis Presley – One Night Lyrics 15 years ago
I think your second idea is more correct ephil, as there isn't anything in the lyrics to indicate that he is cheating. As well, "The things that we two could plan
Would make my dreams come true'" makes it sound like he would plan on getting married perhaps.

Hedley – Sugar Free Lyrics 16 years ago
here's the REAL lyrics:

Tight Rope Walking ain't That Hard
After Slamming Back A Few
You're Laughing Now But It ain't That Funny
When we Get Through With You
Tell me we're all about failing and being wrong
Tell me I'll never let go of you,
I will never give or take you for a ride

And I can't hear myself scream
(If I Never Loved You, I Wouldn't Cry)
And I can't hear myself dream
(If Loving Meant Living, Then I Wouldn't Die)
And I can't let myself go, waiting for you, waiting for you
And I can't feel myself crying

Standing closer ain't that bad
With your hands upon your face
You look too far I looked much harder
And they lost all sense of trace
Me and draw up colour me lost and found
Tear me down lift me up you make me feel so god damn colder than you're bleeding eyes

And I can't hear myself scream
(If I Never Loved You, I Wouldn't Cry)
And I can't hear myself dream
(If Loving Meant Living, Then I Wouldn't Die)
And I can't let myself go, waiting for you, waiting for you
And I can't feel myself crying

If I Never Knew You
I'd Never Love You
If I Never Loved You
Then I Wouldn't Cry
If I Never Hold You
Then I'll never know you
If Loving Meant Living
Then I Wouldn't Die

And I can't hear myself scream
(If I Never Loved You,I Wouldn't Cry)
And I can't hear myself dream
(If Loving Meant Living, Then I Wouldn't Die)
And I can't let myself go, waiting for you, waiting for you
And I can't feel myself crying

And I can't hear myself scream
(If I Never Loved You, I Wouldn't Cry)
And I can't hear myself dream
(If Loving Meant Living, Then I Wouldn't Die)
And I can't hear myself scream
(If I Never Loved You, I Wouldn't Cry)
And I can't hear myself dream
(If Loving Meant Living, Then I Wouldn't Die)

3 Doors Down – It's Not Me Lyrics 16 years ago
Try these out:

Nevermind the face that you put on
In front of me
And nevermind the pain
You've put me ..through

Cause every little thing you say
And every little thing you do
It makes me doubt all of this

What are you waiting for?

[Chorus:]
Look what you did
Is this who you wanted me to be?
Well it's not me

Look what you did
Is this how you wanted it to be?
This life you gave away
Was meant for me

Forget the trip that you've been on
Or so it seems
Nevermind the lies that you told, my tears

Cause every little thing you said
And every little thing you did
You made me doubt all of this

Is that what your waiting for?

[Chorus:]
Look what you did
Is this who you wanted me to be?
Well it's not me

Look what you did
Is this how you wanted it to be?
This life you gave away
Was meant for me
Was meant for me
Was meant for me
Yeah, Yeahhhhhh

Look what you did
Is this who you wanted me to be?
Well it's not me

Look what you did
Is this how you wanted it to be?
This life you gave away
Was meant for me

Yeahhhhhh

Oh was meant for me, yeah hey yeah hey

Oh No Oh


Man, break-ups can sure suck!!! =(

Frank Black and the Catholics – New House of the Pope Lyrics 16 years ago
New House of the Pope comes from the French "Châteauneuf-du-Pape", a wine named after the so-called Babylonian Captivity, wherein the papal residence was moved to France for much of the 14th century. During that period, vineyards were planted in the stony soil and the resulting red wine was christened "Châteauneuf-du-Pape". There is also a village called Châteauneuf-du-Pape, near Avignon.

Queens of the Stone Age – This Lullaby Lyrics 16 years ago
Well Joshy, I think the 3rd verse goes something like this...
"my hope is on the horizon" ...his hope is fading like the sun going down on the horizon
"Every face your eyes I can see"... he sees her in everyone he looks at.
"I plead and prey, through each night and day" but alas, " Our embrace is only a dream".

He is really pining for this woman but all he has left is "This lullaby "

I think it is quite sad actually

Frank Black and the Catholics – I Heard Ramona Sing Lyrics 16 years ago
"They're the best. Let's pretend you're a musicologist or musical anthropologist from Venus," [Frank] says, setting up an interesting scenario. "You're here on earth, you've got a five minute interview with me, and you want me to play you some examples of rock music or pop music. What would I play for you? I think the Ramones are the best example, and taking into consideration 1955 to the present that they have taken in the best influences. They don't encapsulate everything, but little pieces."
- anti.matter.com Interview, May 1993

"It would have been difficult to do a Ramones song and do it justice. The Ramones deserve to have a song written about them, and lo and behold.

Green Day – Whatsername Lyrics 17 years ago
This album is being called "punk opera". Well I don't know if it is exactly that but it IS Green Day's opus. A fabulous ending song about loss on an album that is basically about how America is "losing" it. =)
