Train – The Finish Line Lyrics 10 years ago
I think this song is about a relationship where the man is letting go and the woman is holding on. They both want the relationship to work but the man realizes that letting go is the only option. They would be better off apart and free than being together and broken. Her attempts at saving the relationship are fruitless because he has given up and is not willing to fight, and the more she fights for him, the more he slips away. He tries to explain that we are blinded by what we want so badly we loose sight of what we truly need and what is best for us. She is so focused on holding on to him, she has lost herself along the way and He tries to comfort her by saying that once he has left, she will be able to find herself again, and in turn, be able to let him go.

An achingly and bittersweet song

Train – Lincoln Avenue Lyrics 10 years ago
This is for real my favorite song right now, I can listen to it all day. The music of the piano mixed with pat's vocals it so perfect. Pat's voice carries a kind of pain that makes the story believable (especially at the end when he says "but anyway I need you, I need you now, I need you now, I'm ready now.")Plus the lyrics are so beautifully crafted like:

Well I guess this is where I left my life,
and all its operations.
And I know that I will never get this twice,
with all negotiations.


And I'll tell myself, I don't need you,
I'll tell myself enough to get me through.

And of course

This feels like the place between what is and might have been.

truly a song that i will enjoy listening to for a long long time

Garth Brooks – The Red Strokes Lyrics 12 years ago
All I have to say is the video for this song is freakin amazing. Any guy willing to be drenched in red paint is alright in my book

Don Henley – The End of the Innocence Lyrics 12 years ago
My favorite line in this song is "Offer up you best defence" It infers that the taking of innocence is not wholly consensual making it somewhat bitter.

Seether – No Shelter Lyrics 12 years ago
I thinkg this song is about a man in an unhealthy relationship. He knows that for the sake of both their sanity they must end it, but at the same time he is lost without her. Either way, he looses.
