Smudge – Impractical Joke Lyrics 12 years ago
the bad baited breath line makes me smile. one of my favorites at the moment. i think it's maybe about not being appreciated in a relationship?

Catherine Wheel – I Want To Touch You Lyrics 12 years ago
i lurve this song. for me it's about lusting after someone.

Smudge – Hot Potato Lyrics 12 years ago
taking one for the team i see. my nitpick is that it should be "what's this feeling i just can't get off my che-eee-eee-eee-eest?"

someone got dumped (probably didn't even see it coming) and his ex blabbed about it. hate it when that happens. i love this song so fucking much, it's brilliant. i want to be tom morgan's cigarette... off to watch the clip again.

COOL IT DOWN!

Whiskeytown – Crazy About You Lyrics 12 years ago
such a sweet song - you can't help but feel happy listening to it. i want to meet someone who is as crazy as i am about this song.

if you think that i'm crazy
i'm just crazy 'bout you

sigh.

Whiskeytown – Sit And Listen To The Rain Lyrics 12 years ago
yeah i agree that it describes depression or any sort of meloncholic state of mind really i guess. this song is so so so comforting to me and was listening to it non-stop this past weekend. ryan is a genius.

i think these lyrics are from the "one of you for me" ep.

Holly Throsby – Things Between People Lyrics 12 years ago
the guy holly's singing about sounds like someone i'd dislike because he doesn't know what he wants. he comes off like the type who constantly needs to be in a relationship and as a result will blur the friendship line with his women friends. the woman in this song goes along with it through and is aware of how cyclical & pointless it is... i guess that's why this song resonates with me too much for my own liking.

Holly Throsby – Up With The Birds Lyrics 12 years ago
sneaking out of someone's house before you're found out. this song is so naughty, i love it.

The Replacements – Bastards Of Young Lyrics 12 years ago
God, what a mess, on the ladder of success
Where you take one step and miss the whole first rung

i almost can't fucking believe two lines can sum up the past few years of my life. i need a "bastards of young" support group.

U2 – Last Night On Earth Lyrics 12 years ago
the lyrics look like that cos dsfire copied the way they were printed in the cd booklet.

i can't remember where i heard it (more than likely from a friend trying to mess with my head) but the woman character in this song is the meant to be the same one as in "running to stand still"... so she's still a drug addict. i don't know. i love this song, it sounds amazing on some great speakers.

You Am I – Jewels and Bullets Lyrics 12 years ago
a user from you am i's forum enlightened me with this quote of tim's:

"It's said that when Anastasia Romanov was 'executed' at Yekaterinburg, that Jewels woven into her gown deflected the bullets meant to kill her. A coffee shop in Castle Hill, NSW is a long way from Yekaterinburg, but some folks can let no asshole's comments get to them"

submissions
Youth Group – All This Will Pass Lyrics 12 years ago
someone i love a lot put this on a mix for me and i've been listening non-stop. our situation pretty much mirrors the one in the song: girl hurts boy, girl doesn't stay & runs away, boy hurts girl, just can't add up the sums to find the damage we've done as mr tim rogers would say. i'll get it right one day, maybe.

PJ Harvey – Rub 'til It Bleeds Lyrics 12 years ago

PJ Harvey – Heela Lyrics 12 years ago
{She ...}
{She was a girl, she got her hair done nice}

she was a hoola girl, she got her hair done nice

that's what i hear anyway.

Sebadoh – Got It Lyrics 12 years ago
so sweet! "got it" should have dozens of comments from people saying they want to/have put this song on a mix for their crush. the meaning's self-explanatory, right? this song starts playing in my head every time i think about or speak to a crush of mine. he has no idea but that's ok, i've got his morning warmth.

submissions
Pavement – Black Out Lyrics 12 years ago
malkmus once introduced "black out" as "new gold soundz" haha. i have so much love for this song and for me it's about the growing pains that come with moving into mature adult land.

Ryan Adams – Sylvia Plath Lyrics 12 years ago
ryan and sylvia: two extremely talented people who can describe the way i feel without even knowing me. this song makes a mess of me, it's so heartfelt & sincere. i used to have a friend who was my own "sylvia plath" but she too left as sylvia did. maybe one day i'll have another eccentric person in my life who'd abandon me out a sea with a wink and we'd have a laugh about it later in a drunken haze. hopefully this time i'll be able to keep them but life is never certain right?

Ryan Adams – Wish You Were Here Lyrics 12 years ago
i must be totally fucked up cos this song makes me ridiculously happy and i'd use this song as an expression of my love for my boyfriend. it perfectly captures the feelings that go with life in a shit heap town: you're bored, the one you love lives elsewhere and drugs are your means of entertainment & escape.

The National – Fake Empire Lyrics 12 years ago
i loved reading these comments. recently i spent an entire night discussing this song with a fellow fan and we couldn't decide or agree on a single meaning, but agreed that it describes our lives to an extent. it's fucking genius.

submissions
Depeche Mode – I Feel You Lyrics 12 years ago
a boy i met put this on for us the first time i took e and it was amazing. i guess if i had to describe what being on e was like, i'd refer to this song. yeah it's also an excellent song to have sex to.

Leonardo's Bride – Alaska Lyrics 12 years ago
this song is the musical equivalent of a hug... a song to put on a mix for someone you're grateful for.

sucks when someone can't return your feelings or see you in the same way(s) you see them. it's really really really unfair but lucky for me liz wrote a song about it.

Liz Phair – Fuck And Run Lyrics 12 years ago
some of these responses are doing my head in. i don't think this song is about having borderline personality disorder or some sort of sex addiction; it's about wanting more from someone than just sex. the narrator regrets her one night stands because the men never become her romantic ideal boyfriend who gives her letters & sodas (lovelovelove that line). this song might be my life right now, yay.

kill-me pills is an anne sexton reference. she attempted to overdose on tablets (nembutal) and when it didn't work, she called them her kill-me pills.

Hole – Drunk In Rio Lyrics 12 years ago
i love this song so much: 'me and kurt and patty wrote this song in rio. it's kind of - it's kind of ok. we were drunk'. the best versions are on the bootlegs "ask for it", "rock's bitch" and "ugly demented world".

submissions
Low – (That's How You Sing) Amazing Grace Lyrics 12 years ago
this song makes a mess of me but i could listen to it all day. its meaning is probably as the other posters have said, but i can't help but be reminded of my friend who committed suicide a few months ago.
