The Fray – Over My Head (Cable Car) Lyrics 10 years ago
When He says:

I never knew that everything was falling through: He never knew that love could be so hard.

Everyone I knew was waiting on a cue to turn and run: He doesn't want to go through the same break-ups as all the others.

When all I needed was the truth: He's looking for a the true meaning of love; a deeper love that lasts.

But that's how it's gotta be: People are not perfect and always cheapen love.

It's coming down to nothing more than apathy: People are abusing the word love and leaving it w/o meaning or feeling.

I'd rather run the other way: He doesn't want to be with the one he thinks he loves because it might end like all the others did. Yet he still stays and holds onto the hope that they might one day "be".

Than stay and see the smoke and who's still standing when it clears: He's rather run away from the scarey love than have nothing in the end.

Everyone knows I'm in over my head with eight seconds left in overtime she's on your mind: When he's running out of time, he can only think of her. She is the most important thing to him and he doesn't want to let her go but he's still afraid of getting hurt. He feels like it's obvious. But does she know?

Let's rearrange: Let's fix it. Agree to be together.

I wish you were a stranger I could disengage: I wish we could start over. I wish I could be free from all the hurt of not having you.

Say that we agree and then never change: I wish we felt the same and could always love each other.

Soften a bit until we all just get alone: He wishes love for everyone. That everyone finds love.

let's disregard: But no, it can't be that way because people are again, not perfect.

Find another friend and you discard: Either you get cheated on or just plain abandoned by someone you care about.

As you lose the argument in a cable car: People don't find "perfection" in a relationship so they argue.

Hanging above as a canyon comes between: People can't solve problems bigger than themselves so they break-up to go find that "perfect" person that doesn't exist...and the cycle goes on.

Everyone knows I'm in over my Head with eight seconds left in overtime she's on your mind: I'm crazy to want a true love that I know might hurt me, yet I still yearn for that person and think about them all the time. Your life is running out and you don't want to die alone, but you are torn because you don't want to get burned by that love.

And suddenly I've become part of the past. I'm becoming the part that don't last: I thought I'd have more chances to have you, but they have left me.

I'm losing you and it's effortless: I didn't try hard enough to get you when I had the chance and you slipped away through time right before my eyes.

Without a sound we lose sight of the ground in the throw around: You came into my life so subtly and my life will never be the same. Almost as if you were a tackle I was not expecting, and I came out injured.

Never thought that you wanted to bring it down: Even though you might move on and forget about me...

I won't let it go down till we torch it ourselves:...I have to see you again and clear the air with you. I can't let you go until I know it's nothing...

And everyone knows I'm in over my head with eight seconds left in overtime she's on your mind: I'm crazy to still think about you all the time even though you aren't even in my life anymore. I feel like everyone can see that we are meant to be but we are too afraid of hurting each other to make a move. But it hurts more to be away from one another.

In over my head: This whole thing is crazy, but I still love you.

The Killers – Mr. Brightside Lyrics 10 years ago
This reminds me of how i felt when the guy i liked got a really slutty girlfriend and all i could think about was what they could be doing with one another. I was so devistated. I couldn't eat anything and as hard as i tried, I could not stop thinking about them. But somehow i hid it from everyone how i felt and pretended i didn't care.

Death Cab for Cutie – Marching Bands of Manhattan Lyrics 11 years ago
This is one of my favorites on plans. he's Saying if he could be everything for the person he loves he would. If he could see everything for what it is, he would. And he may seem like a hermit at times, but he is is trying to figure things out and make things happen for the best. Or, in other words, he's working for it. he is willing to open the blinds and let the light in because he loves this person and he wants to try. But while he tries to decide whether it is a good or bad relationship, you miss out on what it really could be. or you stay with the wrong person because you see it wrongly. And the wierd thing is, your comfortable not knowing whether it is good or not, because the truth hurts when it isn't what you wanna hear.

When he says if he could open his mouth wide enough for a marcing band to march out he would. he would say or do anything to save the love, but if it isn't meant to be, its not meant to be, and time will reveal that. When the water overflows, will they make it or drown? Thatis how i see it. :)

Corinne Bailey Rae – I'd Do It All Again Lyrics 11 years ago
Even though everthing is wrong, she still loves him, so she would do it all again. Even though she knows it won't make her happy. But whenever she's with him, she lets go of logic and follows her emotions. "You got my heart and my head's lost."

Regina Spektor – Eet Lyrics 11 years ago
When She says, "He opens a window just to feel the chill," well, that alone is a double meaning. He feels the chill of the outside air and he feels the chill of a cold life.
"He hears that outside a small boy just started to cry," It sounds to me like the older boy is already in someone's house getting ready to steal, but he hears his brother outside and gets a chill because his bad decisions are now affecting his younger brother. And the pattern just goes on..and on...everyday..just screwing up...again..and again...Eet-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-eet-eet-eet. And once you're gone, you can't remember yourself..."It's like forgetting the words to your favorite song." It used to be easy for you to be yourself, but life got hard and you got lost and forgot who you were. And now that you are trying to move your feet and get back into that beat, you slip back into the pattern you created and it sucks. But the fact that, "his brother won't let him try," is a good thing because then he can't make the same mistakes as the older brother did...hmmm.

Owl City – Fireflies Lyrics 12 years ago
He is afrid to dream because sometimes his dreams fail. More than not apparently. He doesn't want to face failure, so he stays awake. His dreams could involve a past relationship that went to an end or it could be about his past alone or kidhood.
If he does decide to fall asleep or think about his dreams, he still wants to be reminded that they aren't failed. This way he won't be so surprised the next time things go wrong. But he knows the truth although he doesn't want to face it.

I'm falling in love with this song. It has sooo much to it. :)

Jorane – Stay Lyrics 12 years ago
This person is walking around the house and remembering details of someone they love. Or in other words, searching their heart, a dark, dark corner and staying in the past. Not wanting to let it go, and willing to take any part of that "someone" they once had. Even if it's only an imaginary part. In hopes that this lover will "come back" home and everything will be where it belongs. But the person is saying this like they have it all together. It's all gonna be good. But the lover isn't really comming back. And deep down, they know.

Gary Jules – Mad World (Tears for Fears cover) Lyrics 12 years ago
This is a beautiful song. A lot on the depressing side but i love it. It makes me cry everytime I hear it. The only thing I don't like about this song is you can get lost in it. Like a tunnel you can never get out of. A rut. You can go into those deep feelings of hurt if you think about it. Whether for a close friend, yourself, a stranger, or someone all the way across the world. But the bottom line is holes have this cool thing about them. They can be filled. And what is this nonsense about finding God? He's already there! He's got his hand out. Grab it and don't hold onto hurt. IT CAN AND WILL DESTROY YOU IF YOU LET IT. The world is only mad if it thinks there's no hope. Sorrow is part of life and it may seem endless. face it. But then knock it down and keep forward.


Courtney Marie Andrews – Home Sick Lyrics 12 years ago
wow. when i first heard this song it was at ACAA. Courtney was new at our school but so famous already in our small school of like 300 people. it was like a big family around a camp fire. That was a cool year with her there. I had to leave though.
THIS SONG MADE ME CRY! The whole audience was speechless. This girl was so inspiational. I'm surprised this song has like no comments. People need a wake up call. or maybe she just hasn't put this one youtube. but you'll hear it one day. then you'll know what i'm blabbering on about.

This song is a true story. I think she was writing these songs as these events were happening. The guy who she "loves" is far away. she's waiting for a season to come when she'll see him again. She's afraid he won't remember her name or in other words, who she is...or she's taling about her family in the same matter.

Kevin Rudolf – Let It Rock (feat, Lil Wayne) Lyrics 13 years ago

Kevin Rudolf – Let It Rock (feat, Lil Wayne) Lyrics 13 years ago
nice beat though....but lil wayne kills don't have to like him because society tells you too! seriously he smells like booboo. nooooooooooooooooooooooo he killed it. makes me mad.

Kevin Rudolf – Let It Rock (feat, Lil Wayne) Lyrics 13 years ago
The sad thing about this song is that it has so much meaning until lil wayne's part. It was giving emotion and feeling...someone feels ashamed about his actions but keeps on doing the same thing over and over again...hiding ashamed.yadayada..and then....Bam!! pimps and whores! i'm lil wayne! blah blah blah! ugh! what a shame!

Sia – Breathe Me Lyrics 13 years ago
no longer does she breathe in the smoke with control, it breathes her. The addiction is overtaking her and in a sense, she wants it too because she feels to small to change. how depressing. Or maybe she just wants someone to be her friend as she mentioned. maybe she considers drugs to be as comforting as a friend would be. She wants to be saved. but she likes the feel good of the moment and is stuggling with will to change. This song may have a double meaning.

a complete and utter WEAK moment.

Sia – Breathe Me Lyrics 13 years ago
i think this song may be about smoking. She thinks it's going to solve all her problems for her.
But somewhere in there she knows it's damaging her physically and emotionally.
When she says, "breathe me," she's talking about the smoke. no longer does she only breathe it into her lungs, but the addiction has consumed her and is now in control of her.
It now breathes her.
But then again, she keeps going back to it.
Breathe me.
She repaeats it like a million times.

Sia – Butterflies Lyrics 13 years ago
This song isn't about drugs. But it is most deffinatly about a couple that's been though a lot. Good and bad and they are still in love more than ever. It sounds like a marriage to me. Also, when you're married and have officially had sex, as a married couple, (even people who are not married have sex. i know this. but i believe it was meant for marraige.) you become one. That might've been what she was saying when mentioning that they share the same cocoon together. Or maybe not, who knows.

Natalie Walker – Quicksand Lyrics 13 years ago
Notice she was all alone and comfortable at the same time. So if you think you'll feel uncomfortable if you break off a relationship, think again. It will be the best thing you ever did in the end.

Natalie Walker – Waking Dream Lyrics 13 years ago
The first time i heard this song, i thought this song was about a fantacy she was having about someone. "im floating in your heaven in the corners of my dreams." but as she woke up and tasted life, she was numb agian. She closed her eyes and it began. further into her ecstacy. But on the other hand, dream may take a different form and she could be on something. High.
