Bright Eyes – The Center of the World Lyrics 10 years ago
I see this song being more about life than suicide or romance.
Lunetia's comment on the first page was getting it.
If you listen to the other songs on the album i'm sure that you could piece it together.
Instead of trying to relate the song to his real life (brother issues and whatnot).
I relate it to life in general.
Everything is meaningless. Things only matter because we make them matter. Some people live a lie because they don't know the truth... other's choose to live a lie because they don't want to face the truth.
We are fools for thinking we could get away with pretending that we matter.
In the end we are nothing nomatter what we do or try to convince ourselves otherwise.
There is no difference between death and living.

why do people keep in mentioning their names being amber?
this song has nothing to do with a girl named amber... it's referring to a fucking color....

Coldplay – The Scientist Lyrics 11 years ago
Come up to meet you
Tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

(He left her, or hurt her in someway... he made a mistake and now he's trying to come back and say he's sorry... letting here know how he's set her apart from all the others and she is the only person he needs)

Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh, let's go back to the start

(he wants her to tell him what she's been keeping inside, she want's her to ask him all the questions she has so he can finally answer them for her. he wants to go back to the beginning and try this all over again)

Running in circles
Coming in tails
Heads on a science apart

(The situation just keeps on getting replayed over and over again and each time, it's still a problem. Heads on a science apart.. Him and her shouldn't be together if you try to look at the relationship in a logical sense, just like scientists try to look at things in a logical manner.. their minds see things differently)

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh, take me back to the start

(It's hard to keep the relationship, but it'd be sad for it to end... he just wants her to try this all over again because although the relationship and frustration is hard to deal with... parting ways hurts worse)

I was just guessing
At numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart

(He was looking at the relationship, picking it apart. Coming to the conclusion that things between them just wouldn't work out. Every time he would look at the relationship in a logical sense trying to figure out how it'd last, he was just ruining it.)

Questions of science
Science and progress
Did not speak as loud as my heart

(What he didn't realize at the time that he realizes now is that all of the questions of "will this work?" and "how will this last?" don't even matter because he loves her. Instead of nit-picking the relationship with his mind, he's going with his heart on this despite what the odds may be)

Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
I want to rush to the start

(When he left the relationship she was still on his mind "haunting" him. He wants to just hurry up and for her give him a second chance, to start all over again, so he can hear her tell him she loves him once more)

Running in circles
Chasing tails
Coming back as we are

(the problems and issues just keep on repeating, but that's part of the relation and is what makes them... them... they're going back to how they used to be)

Nobody said it was easy
Oh, it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start

(It's not easy, but it's too sad for it to end... which is why he is starting the relationship all over. He realizes that he loves her and needs to be with her. Sometimes reason and logic doesn't make you happy and love doesn't need an explanation or a set plan. He wants to go back to the start because thats where the love was. He wants to try it all over again, he wants a second chance, because he realized he messed up. Sometimes things should just... be. They don't need to be picked apart or figured out to work)

That's what the song means to me, I'm sure others would disagree with my interpretation of the song.... but just remember... it's MY interpretation. I'm not claiming there are no other meanings to it.
