††† – †he Epilogue Lyrics 7 years ago
This song makes me think that the singer is stalking a girl who he is obsessed with and thinks he's in love with. He watches her in the car and follows her as she drives from the bar and watches her sleep in the park. His "doom" is when he finally confronts her and breaks his perfect relationship. As is, he can concoct the perfect romance with her from far away, but he's afraid that it will be ruined when he finally approaches her.

Mumford & Sons – White Blank Page Lyrics 9 years ago
From the first time I heard this song, this is how I've always interpreted it.

Can you lie next to her
And give her your heart, your heart
As well as your body
And can you lie next to her
And confess your love, your love
As well as your folly

The singer is male A and he's singing to male B. The two had been in a relationship, but #2 was always insecure about his sexuality and eventually caved in to societal pressures or his own securities and tried to be straight by getting into a relationship with a girl. Also, it sounds like "folly" is sung very sarcastically, as if A is mocking B and calling their relationship (or even B rejecting his being gay) as "folly."

And can you kneel before the king
And say I'm clean, I'm clean

B is a religious man, and homosexuality is frowned upon in most religions, and A is mocking him, asking if B can go before his god and say that he's "clean," or sin-free, even though A and B had a relationship, and that B trying to be heterosexual won't make him "clean" in his god's eyes.

But tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with all my heart
Oh tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with all my heart

When B broke it off, he told A that it was A's fault, that A pressured him into their relationship, anything to take the blame off himself, and A is reflecting on how much he loved B, and it wasn't his fault because, at the time, B had wanted him too.

A white blank page and a swelling rage, rage
You did not think when you sent me to the brink, the brink
You desired my attention but denied my affections, my affections

Now A is getting bitter and angry at B, because B didn't consider his feelings at all when he broke it off with A, and was only thinking of himself and how to appear more "normal" (read: heterosexual). Because they had a relationship, A had been attached to B, but B had ripped out his heart, only thinking about himself, and A mockingly reminds B that B did want the attention he got from A.

Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life
Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life

Even with everything he went through, A is telling B that when things don't work out with the girl, to come back because, even with a broken heart and bitter resentment against B, A still loves him and would "follow [him] with [his] whole life."

Young the Giant – Your Side Lyrics 10 years ago
Here are the real lyrics as told by YtG:

Always on time
You’re in white light
But you’re wrong dear
You won’t be telling all the lies when I’m gone
And you know it’s for show

Everybody holds on to something
And you can’t hide me

Tell me, I’m in charge
Back like the old days
Tell me, I’m involved
And we will be fine
I’m still here
You’re in the right
Every body knows you tried, and I tried

Always on time
You’re on my mind
But I’m wrong dear
I won’t be telling all the lies when you’re gone
The front door opened slow

Everybody moves on someday
And I can’t find you

Tell me you’re in charge
Back like the old days
Tell me you’re involved
And we will be fine
I’m still here
You’re in the right
Everybody knows I tried, and you tried

You’re eyes open up
Inside you’re fine

Tell me you’re in charge
Back like the old days
Tell me you’re involved
And we will be fine
I’m still here
You’re in the right
Everybody knows I tried, and you tried

Young the Giant – My Body Lyrics 10 years ago
They finally posted their lyrics. Here's the correct version:

Stop!
The train is riding
Down to the station where you lived
When we were school kids

Hey!
The rails are caught now
And I am falling down
Fools in a spiral
Round this town of steam

My Body tells me no!
But I won’t quit
I want more, I want more
My Body tells me no!
But I won’t quit
I want more, I want more!

Stop
The train is riding
Down to the station where I lived
When I was a cool kid

Hey!
Is it my fault that
The fallen embers burn
Down in a spiral
Round your crown of thieves

My body tells me no, but I won’t quit
I want more, I want more!
My body tells me no, but I won’t quit
I want more, I want more!
And it rides out of town

Oh, it’s my road (x^)
And
It’s my war (X2)
His eyes are open
It’s my war (X2)
His eyes are open (X2)

My body tells me no, but I won’t quit
I want more, I want more!
My body tells me no, but I won’t quit
I want more, I want more!
And it rides out of town

I thought the lyrics were

Shine on
BRIGHT like the sun

That's what it sounds like to me, at least.

Coldplay – Swallowed in the Sea Lyrics 11 years ago
This is my favorite Coldplay song ever. I wish I knew what it really meant, what the boys wanted to portray but, for me, I interpret this song as simpler than it probably should be. To me, it's a cry out to be someone, not to get "swallowed in the sea" of the everyday and be no one. I think it could also be for someone who has died. Like, my mom died just over a month ago and on certain days this song is for her in that I don't want her to go unnoticed and just get swallowed up in the day-to-day goings on of the world where she no longer is.

I think that everyone wants to be noticed in some way and not be passed over or SWallowed In The SEA.
