Fleetwood Mac – Hard Feelings Lyrics 13 years ago
This is, obviously, a break-up song.

"Still you want to be friends
But I don't want to be just friends"

He obviously does not want to be screwed around anymore by someone who hurt him. I like the demo version the best where the line is "but I don't want to be YOUR friend". Definitely a song I've been listening to a lot. Good riddance to lousy people ;)

John Mayer – Slow Dancing in a Burning Room Lyrics 13 years ago
When I listen to this song..I feel like I'm suffocating.
It describes my relationship with my ex/best friend so well.

But I can look at it two ways. One way I think of it as her singing to me...And then I can think about it reversed.

"Can't seem to hold you like I want to
So I can feel you in my arms"
She never liked to be touched...So I could never hold her like I wanted to.

"I was the one you always dreamed of
You were the one I tried to draw"-- We both used to dream about each other. She also used to draw these characters that were representative of us...But said she could never draw my character the way she imagined.

"How dare you say it's nothing to me
Baby, you're the only light I ever saw"-- I would be the one to tell her that I meant nothing to her. And she would say something like this. When love dissolves, people get hurt. And it can feel like there was never anything there to begin with.

"I'll make the most of all the sadness
You'll be a bitch because you can"-- I'll try to carry on, and make the most of whatever I can...But she'll continue to be a bitch. Never fall in love with your best friend.

"You try to hit me just to hurt me
So you leave me feeling dirty
Because you can't understand"-- this would be me. I'll then try to hurt her because I just can't understand why or how she could stop loving me. Although, it was obvious it wasn't going to work because we had so many problems. But we kept coming back to each other because we wanted to feel the way we used to. We never want to admit that it's ending...So when we're slow dancing, we don't realize that everything around us is burning.

"Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow?"

Billy Joel – Somewhere Along The Line Lyrics 14 years ago
"But you pay for your satisfaction
Somewhere along the line"

what goes around comes around!
I think this song is probably pretty autobiographical for Billy Joel

Elton John – Skyline Pigeon Lyrics 14 years ago
This is the song, not to be morbid or anything, that I want to be played at my funeral.

There will be freedom from whatever troubles you have...Somewhere down the line...

Elton John – Someday Out Of The Blue Lyrics 14 years ago
There's always the chance that love will come around again... I love this song-- it's so optimistic

The Weepies – Wish I Could Forget Lyrics 14 years ago
"Standing in the sun
Smoking quiet cigarettes
Just before I let you down"

This song is wonderful. Sometimes a relationship ends even when you don't want it to...And sometimes you have to be the reason why

The Weepies – All This Beauty Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is so uplifting.

You can find beauty and all kinds of good things in every situation- either at the time, or in retrospect

Jann Arden – Sorry For Myself Lyrics 14 years ago
This part:
i know you’ve had it up to there with all my chaos and confusion
i am living a delusion and i do not give a damn"
is so good. I know I've chosen to live in delusions instead of reality.

Jann Arden – Weeds Lyrics 14 years ago
I love this song so much. It's such an empowering song, especially when you're feeling down. You've got to keep reminding yourself that you're going to get by.

Eagles – Desperado Lyrics 14 years ago
There's a definite frustration in this song. To me, this song makes more sense from my perspective when I hear the Linda Ronstadt cover... But none-the-less, it seems to be about a love that will never happen because there's a guy who refuses to grow up. And really, we've all got to let somebody love us...

Billy Joel – Falling Of The Rain Lyrics 14 years ago
I love this song. The last lyrics are so perfect... Things just end sometimes, and there's nothing you can do about it. Nothing ever really changes...

Fleetwood Mac – The Green Manalishi Lyrics 14 years ago
To me, this song has always been about Peter Green and his battle with himself. For a time, Peter Green was called The Green God. (something random: Eric Clapton was called God...on grafitti, I believe? and at one point Green was called "better than God") PG had a lot of pressure on him to be succesful.

Fleetwood Mac – Silver Springs Lyrics 14 years ago
I think this is quite possibly the best break-up song ever! Stevie Nicks is so emotional, it's perfect.
When someone ends a relationship with you (although, she was the one who broke up with Lindsey..) you feel like you will never be able to move on. But you do, and then you realize what a mistake they made. And they're going to regret it-- and you're going to make sure they do.
Someday, I'm going to sing this song to "the ex" and it's going to be epic.

Fleetwood Mac – I Don't Want To Know Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with the person above. I think this song is definitely about a relationship ending, and the confusion that goes with it. You know it's not working, and while you don't want it to end you know that it can't go on this way. "I don't want to stand between you and love
Honey, take a little time." The singer wants their lover to have real love..But she's also asking him to think about it (hehe, Stevie Nicks) before he makes a decision to leave.

Fleetwood Mac – The Way I Feel Lyrics 14 years ago
I think this song is about being in love with someone that you either a) have no chance with or b) was already in a relationship with. "But it's too late and I know I'm making
A fool, a fool of myself"-- you know there's no going back, but you can't completely rid yourself of the feelings that you had then, and you're really bad at hiding them from everyone around you.

Fleetwood Mac – Winds Of Change Lyrics 14 years ago
I love this song!
It's such a great "screw you, I'm moving on" song after a break up.
"Now I'm so tired of thinking of you
I just wanna forget that you were ever mine"
It can be hard to just forget, especially when that person was in your life for so long.
And when they stop loving you, and you them...
It becomes so weird to think:
"Ain't it strange-
How you won't matter?"
when they were your entire life.

Fleetwood Mac – Why Lyrics 14 years ago
This is possibly the most beautiful Fleetwood Mac song ever. The soaring instrumental part at the beginning is so hopeful and optomistic... And then the lyrics. Christine McVie's voice is so gorgeous.
Clearly it's about a relationship not working out. The singer is wondering about what happened and how it all went wrong. the last few lines... So heartbreaking.

Fleetwood Mac – Storms Lyrics 14 years ago
This is all too familiar to me now... I've been a Fleetwood Mac fan for what seems like forever, but I've only come to truly understand this song now.

It seems to me to be about the end of a relationship and a friendship (presumably, in Stevie Nicks case, Lindsey Buckingham) "As you slowly go away from me/This is only another test"-- the person is drifting away from you, and you're left with memories of what was and what will never be. But you've got to get through it. "So I try to say
/Goodbye my friend"-- it can be hard to say goodbye and lose a friendship when the love is lost. And even though you knew you'd get hurt and your heart would end up broken... "I loved you from the start".
