Casiotone for the Painfully Alone – To My Mr. Smith Lyrics 13 years ago
when the bus doesn't show*

this song, like so many other casiotone songs, is just so honest and bare that it breaks your heart.

S – I'm Fine... Bye Bye Lyrics 13 years ago
drinking a lot and forgetting the whole night, only to be reminded of your lapses in judgement the next day.

The Hush Sound – As You Cry Lyrics 13 years ago
my ex sent me this song the other day.

that bastard.

Say Hi – Blizzard Lyrics 13 years ago
yeah, i get that whole nostalgic feeling, too, except i'm reminded of just walking through the snow in the dark last year. it's an appropriate title for the song, it sounds very wintery.

Mogwai – Golden Porsche Lyrics 13 years ago
this song is breathtaking.
i've been listening to it on repeat for the last 3 days. it's so beautiful, and so happy, but sad at the same time.
from this song, i get a few feelings, like that of a fresh start, or realization. like, waking up and seeing the sun shining, and appreciating the beauty of it. there's a sadness, too, and from that i get the feeling that nothing lasts forever, so be happy and love what you have.

i don't know. mogwai is the most intense, emotional band i know of. there really aren't words to convey everything you hear in one of these songs, because you connect on such a personal level.

Carissa's Wierd – Sophisticated Fuck Princess Please Leave Me Alone Lyrics 13 years ago
the first line is
"i can't recall what made me like you"

Carissa's Wierd – Sophisticated Fuck Princess Please Leave Me Alone Lyrics 13 years ago
the first line is
"i can't recall what made me like you"

Rilo Kiley – A Better Son/Daughter Lyrics 14 years ago
"And your mother’s still calling you insane
And I swear that it’s different this time
And you tell her you give in to the demons that possess her
And that God never blessed her insides"

I believe this part also relates to the bipolar theory that surrounds this song.
Bipolar is often hereditary, and I suffer from it myself.
"You give in to the demons that possess her"
Bipolar possessed her first, and now you.

Alexisonfire – To A Friend Lyrics 14 years ago

Haha, I thought the EXACT same thing.

Laurie Anderson – O Superman (For Massenet) Lyrics 14 years ago
this song is beautiful in it's strangeness.
it really gives you that feeling as if you're in the middle of a war.
most people i know that have heard this song think it's weird and hate it, but i like it.

Alexisonfire – Sharks And Danger Lyrics 14 years ago
AHHH thank you.
i've been trying for ages to figure out what the man is saying in the phone conversation.

Say Hi – As Smart As Geek Is Chic Right Now Lyrics 14 years ago
this song is so cute. i love it.

Neurosonic – Until I Die Lyrics 14 years ago
I saw these guys at V-Fest and I wa blown away. Freaking fantastic.
Right after they went offstage I went and bought the $50 Neurosonic hoodie. HAH.

Lovehatehero – Theatre of Robots Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with escapexvelocity.
"The pavement; it dulls your senses.
And visions of black and white, of solid steel,
and flashing lights.
So close your eyes, and lose this fight."

It sounds like someone jumped off of a building, just to end it.
Fantastic song.

Madonna – Nobody's Perfect Lyrics 14 years ago
This was playing in my classroom the other day, and my teacher turned to me and said, "Hey, this is your song!"
I hate it, but I have to agree with her.

Madonna – Nobody's Perfect Lyrics 14 years ago
This was playing in my classroom the other day, and my teacher turned to me and said, "Hey, this is your song!"
I hate it, but I have to agree with her.

The Medic Droid – Keeping Up With the Joneses Lyrics 14 years ago
Hooray for new Medic Droid!!!
I've been waiting ever since Fer Sure came out :]

Mogwai – I Know You Are But What Am I? Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with drmn.
When I saw the title, I have to admit I thought of elementary school comebacks, but after I listened to the song I thought about it, and it made sense.
I know you are - I know you exist; I know you're there; I know you're a person

But what am I?

Quite ingenious, actually.

Misery Signals – Worlds & Dreams Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is absolutely wonderful. I listened to it on repeat for weeks nonstop.

It reminds me of freedom. It just makes me want to run. Amazing.

Sequoyah Prep School – 501 Lyrics 14 years ago
This song, to me, is about someone who's just sick of where they are, and they up and left.
Something I wish I had the guts to do sometimes.

American Football – Letters and Packages Lyrics 14 years ago
Instant emotion. Bravo.

Off Topic – We Get It, You're Sad Lyrics 14 years ago

This song is absolute genius.
Thumbs up!!

Lily Allen – Cheryl Tweedy Lyrics 14 years ago
"Wish I had blonde hair
Wish I had green eyes"

me. :)
'cept my hair is no longer blonde because i've dyed it so often.
iunno, i just read that and laughed and said to myself, haha, i don't have to wish!!

and that, my friends, is the deep meaning i gathered from this song.

Halloween, Alaska – Des Moines Lyrics 14 years ago
The boy with such sad wings should stay off tall buildings and keep away from high wires.

So, so sad. I love it.

Depeche Mode – Stripped Lyrics 14 years ago
Shiny Toy Guns does a great version of this song. The line that always got me was 'Metropolis has nothing on this'.
To me, that just seemed like fantastic writing.

The Cranberries – Zombie Lyrics 14 years ago
This song has been my all time favourite since I was a baby. No joke, I used to dance to this song in my crib. And no, I don't remember. My mother told me :)
It's phenomenal, and so emotional. The music is so well married with the lyrics, and this is one of the few songs I could listen to on repeat nonstop and I wouldn't get tired of it.

Elliott Smith – Twilight (Somebody's Baby) Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is so beautiful. It gets me every time.

My Chemical Romance – Welcome To The Black Parade Lyrics 14 years ago
In my humble opinion, the whole Black Parade album sucked out loud.
They should've quit while they were ahead. Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge wasn't that bad, and I do own it, which means that I'm not one of those people that immediately hates on a band because of their musical style.
I gave MCR a chance, and they blew it.

Between the Trees – The Way She Feels Lyrics 14 years ago
To be honest (and most certainly not meaning to be offensive), I liked this song better before I realized that they're talking about Christ, for no reason other than the fact that I'm not religious in any way, shape, or form.
Other than that, though, it's an amazing song.

Between the Trees – You Cry A Tear To Start A River Lyrics 14 years ago
This song makes me feel...hopeful. Maybe not the song itself, but the lyrics definitely.

Lost Ocean – You Are Lyrics 14 years ago
One chose to stay, the other flew away. One chose to stray, the promises they made.

Oh my word, this scared me when I read it.
I can really relate to this song well, but this line's eerie.
The line reminds me of my parents.
One chose to stay = My mom
The other flew away = My dad (He's always flying away to places. He doesn't live with us.)
One chose to stray = My stepdad (We have no idea where he went or what he's doing.)
The promises they made = Everything they said would happen, but didn't.

This just applies to me, of course.

Elliott Smith – Can't Make a Sound Lyrics 14 years ago
Why should you want any other
When you're a world within a world?

C'est incroyable!!

Dear and the Headlights – Paper Bag Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with Kassichi.
That line, to me, means that he regrets the things he never did when he was younger (i.e. have fun and be free/live life to the fullest..?)

Nights Like These – Symphony For The Plague Lyrics 14 years ago
These lyrics are freaking fantastic. I fell in love as soon as I saw them.

Circle Takes the Square – Interview At The Ruins Lyrics 14 years ago
When I heard "Face the corner of the box and dive in", I thought of Pandora's Box, not a coffin. Was I the only one..?

The Submarines – Ready or Not Lyrics 14 years ago
I want somebody to sing this to me.

Darude – Sandstorm Lyrics 14 years ago
I danced around to this song in my class today.
Best techno song ever.

The Medic Droid – Fer Sure Lyrics 14 years ago
I have spent countless lunch hours belting out this song in empty classrooms.
Amazing x5.

Lady Bouncer – 3 2 1 ZERO Lyrics 14 years ago
Lady Bouncer is phenomenal. =]

Lady Bouncer – Dirty Mary Lyrics 14 years ago
The first verse is wrong.
"Hello, my name is Dirty Mary
Your horny secretary
I'll be whatever you want me to be
I can be a motherfuckin slut
You simply have to ask it
And you will see this Mary getting nasty"

Great song.
Made me laugh.

Jimmy Cliff – You Can Get It If You Really Want Lyrics 14 years ago
This song was used in the book "Second Star To The Right", a book about a young anorexic girl. She uses this song to work out.
That's all I hear when I hear this song.
"You can get it if you really want, but you must try try and try" = "You're almost thin. Keep going."

Carrie Underwood – Before He Cheats Lyrics 14 years ago
I always heard "legacy", not "leather seat". Hmm.

I'm not one for country, but oddly enough I have all the words to this song memorized.
It's a great song to belt out on a bus with a friend.
Or in a classroom.
Or anywhere, really.
Haha, I don't like Carrie Underwood but the song is great.

Umbrellas – Comfort in Suffering Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with charcoal. It sounds like he's talking about a car wreck that killed somebody he loved, and now he can't stop thinking about it.
"and I play it safe now"

Planes Mistaken for Stars – The Past Two Lyrics 14 years ago
This song was written for me, I swear. This past December ripped me apart, and now I'm afraid to admit that I feel vaguely suicidal.

Drop Dead, Gorgeous – E.R. Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with Erica.
The ending is AMAZING.

Bright Eyes – A Line Allows Progress, a Circle Does Not Lyrics 14 years ago
As you try to find some source of light
Try to name one thing you like
You used to have such a longer list
And light, you never had to look for it
But now it's so easy to second guess everything you do
Until all you want is to finish this half empty glass
Before the ice melts away
This feeling always used to pass
But seems like it's every day
Seems like it's every night now

I didn't even have to hear the song to get hit by that.
Conor is absolutely amazing.

Say Hi – Blizzard Lyrics 14 years ago
The first verse makes absoutely no sense at all to me. I'll repost what I think he's saying.

The bliss, your hair unkempt
The blizzard came and went
And we played twister 'til our joints got sore again
And I need to take it all in for a little while

Snow Patrol – Make This Go On Forever Lyrics 14 years ago
I have been playing this song nonstop since I heard it. It's not so much the lyrics that impress me, but the way they're sung. The chrous just makes me feel so...eerily insignificant. It sounds big, and I love it.
