|I always thought this was about a UFO sighting from both perspectives.|
|Morrissey – You Have Killed Me Lyrics||9 years ago|
I'm a songwriter
I rarely look at lyrics literally. It's about the sound of the word, the images conjured up.
I like to look at this song about the beauty of a sexual encounter (specifically an orgasm) and the beauty of Italy that has "killed" Morrissey. Pretty damn cool.
|Conor Oberst – White Shoes Lyrics||12 years ago|
Hauntingly-beautiful song... it just aches with feeling, the guitar, everything. I had my eyes closed when I first listened to it and I started spinning. I have my interpretation of this song but I'm not sure I could make it coherent. Probably my new favorite Conor song.
Makes me wish the album had more of this...instead of that.
-also makes me wish i was a better songwriter-

|I see 3D color patterns when...|
|Nine Inch Nails – Head Like a Hole Lyrics||12 years ago|
|This song is obviously through the eyes of a porn star. Very hot in a twisted way. The whole album screams sex. This was the first cd I ever bought. I was 13...I still listen to it.|
|Elvis Costello – Goon Squad Lyrics||13 years ago|
|I think this song is about Elvis deciding to be a musician instead of jumping into the "real world" and realizing that he feels like an outcast among the group of popular musicians just the same, in the goon squad.|
|Elliott Smith – Bottle Up and Explode (Demo version) Lyrics||13 years ago|
|These demo lyrics seem very intriguing. Seems like the beginning of the song he's settling into his night with some alcohol. She explodes with stars when he sees a girl at the bar he was once close to. She's ignoring him. When he can't get her attention he tries to explode the pieces of memory that are reminding him that she's still around and that they ever knew each other. The final version added the sex reference...a memory of her crying while he was inside her...probably not a good memory to him. The final version seems to allude to him wanting to "be" the girl in order to figure her out.|
