Electric Light Orchestra – Twilight Lyrics 2 years ago
@[KProvance:23884] I'm not the only one who noticed the line "You stepped out of the dream, believing everything was gone" - which, to me, was the final giveaway. Interesting, though, Lynne has said he never established, in his own mind, whether it was all a dream or real - to the protagonist.

Erasure – Hideaway Lyrics 8 years ago
I've always assumed this track was about Andy Bell's own experience of coming out to his friends and family.

Heaven 17 – Let Me Go Lyrics 9 years ago
I've always seen this track as being about a couple who's relationship has obviously run it's course, but the protagonist in the song isn't strong enough to let go - even though they want to - and the other party won't let go.

Depeche Mode – Somebody Lyrics 10 years ago
Having read the Wikipedia on the track, it seems I was totally wrong about it..!

Depeche Mode – Somebody Lyrics 10 years ago
"Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I'll get away with it"

Maybe I'm reading those words wrongly (and if I am, my partner is as well), but those lines suggest the song's been penned from the point of view of a child molester...

Evanescence – Ascension Of The Spirit Lyrics 10 years ago
I've always got the feeling, through the music, of someone in turmoil at the beginning of the track. They start to feel more positive at around a minute and five seconds in, but then the feeling turns to despair, before reverting back to something more positive towards the end.

Lily Allen – LDN Lyrics 11 years ago
Really?! Care to enlighten me as to what working class area you live in?

I lived in Westbourne Park for 10 years and whilst it was a good area with loads of good people when I first moved in, the estate I was on ended up one filled with anti social families, where gangs of feral youths would intimidate other residents and ritually wreck any improvement work carried out, where drug dealing and taking happened in broad daylight and where prostitutes brought their clients because of the nice secluded car park the block I lived in had - again in broad daylight.

Anyone know where the video was shot, as some of the backdrops looks frighteningly like the Portobello Road/Westbourne Park area..?

Ultravox – When The Time Comes Lyrics 11 years ago
I've looked at these lyrics and listened to the track several times and I can only conclude it's about the break up of a relationship, as seen through the eyes of a close friend.

Genesis – Please Don't Ask Lyrics 12 years ago
This track reminds me of the time after I split up with my girlfriend - questioning whether I did the right thing in going. To a certain extent, I did the same as the person in the song in trying to persuade my ex to take me back again, but knew deep down that things had just changed to much to allow it to happen.

It's a nice track and very poignant for anyone who's been in the position of the party Phil Collins is singing about...

Moby – Dream About Me Lyrics 12 years ago
"A .... red skives
For long time"

It's actually:

Against red skies
For all time

I think the track's about someone who fancies someone that doesn't fancy them and having to face up to the fact.

Moby – Temptation Lyrics 12 years ago
These are the words I hear when playing this track:

Moby - Temptation
==============

Heaven, a gateway, a hope
Just like a feeling I need, it's no joke
And though it hurts me to see you this way
Betrayed by words,
I'd never heard,
Too hard to say them

Oh, up, down, turn around, please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I'll walk alone, find my soul as I go home
Up, down, turn around, please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I'll walk alone, find my soul as I go home

Oh it's the last time, oh it's the last time
x2

Each way I turn
I know I'll always try
To break the circle
That has been placed round me
From time to time
I find I lost
Some meaning
That was urgent
To myself
I do believe

Oh, up, down, turn around, please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I'll walk alone, find my soul as I go home
Up, down, turn around, please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I'll walk alone, find my soul as I go home

Oh it's the last time, oh it's the last time
x2

And I've never met anyone quite you before
x4

And I've never met anyone quite you before (Oh, up, down, turn around, please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I'll walk alone, find my soul as I go home)

And I've never met anyone quite you before (Up, down, turn around, please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I'll walk alone, find my soul as I go home)

Up, down, turn around, please don't let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I'll walk alone, find my soul as I go home
x2
