Fiona Apple – On the Bound Lyrics 5 years ago
I absolutely adore this song and Fiona. That said, I agree with the idea that this song is about Fi's uncertainty/doubt over some sort of choice or path she's taken/about to take in her life. She wants some "faith" to have something to guide her with, and she's reluctant to believe she CAN do it on her own.

Fiona Apple – Periphery Lyrics 5 years ago
I think this song is about peripheral vision, in the sense of the saying "hindsight's 20/20." I believe Fi is talking about how she realizes, looking through corners of her eyes (peripherally), that what she had with the man meant nothing, and that she doesn't believe it was worth all she went through emotionally. This one hits home :/ Love u Fi

Fiona Apple – Shadowboxer Lyrics 5 years ago
I love how relatable the song is. And the lyrics and the sheer beauty of her voice seriously make this song one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard. So much love for this woman <3

Fiona Apple – Sleep to Dream Lyrics 5 years ago
My personal favorite lines are definitely "You say love is a hell you cannot bear/And I say gimme mine back and then go there, for all I care" - so witty and clever. And I'm just in love with the jazzy (dare I say, early-Regina-Spektor-type) feel of the song <3

Fiona Apple – Sleep to Dream Lyrics 5 years ago
Like that the chorus, I believe, is about how you can be so much more mature and independent and imaginative than some of the people you know, but they tend to not notice this. I think that's what makes her such an amazing musician, besides the wonderful voice and composing of course :)

Fiona Apple – Sleep to Dream Lyrics 5 years ago
I really hate to be ~that~ person, but I honestly can totally relate to this song having recently been dumped by my best friend. I think this song is definitely a great "fuck you" song but oh-so-brilliantly-layered like so many of Fiona's lyrics.

Sleeping with Sirens – The Bomb Dot Com v2.0 Lyrics 6 years ago
The lyrics are so religious, it just makes me so fucking uncomfortable. That said, I still love the song. But ugh, the lyrics -__- :///

Sleeping with Sirens – In Case of Emergency, Dial 411 Lyrics 6 years ago
Ugh, the religiousness of the song is toxic. NO. JUST NO. But I still love the song, and SWS.

Sleeping with Sirens – With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear Lyrics 6 years ago
The song is brilliant, and so is SWS, but the lyrics are SO FUCKING RELIGIOUS, ugh. *crosses fingers that none of it rubs off on me* LOL

Sleeping with Sirens – Four Corners and Two Sides Lyrics 6 years ago
Don't know why there are no other comments, but I'll get the ball rolling with: I LOVE THIS SONG. That is all :)

Sleeping with Sirens – Who Are You Now Lyrics 6 years ago
I only have to add this to the previous comment: <3333333333

Mayday Parade – When I Get Home You're So Dead Lyrics 6 years ago
I just love everything about this song. I agree that it's about a cheating girl who "gets around" and he's just done with her. MP <333

Wild Nothing – My Angel Lonely Lyrics 6 years ago
Such a brilliant song, I'm completely enamored of it :)

Pierce the Veil – Disasterology Lyrics 6 years ago
Such a good song <333

Selena Gomez & The Scene – Middle Of Nowhere Lyrics 6 years ago
DEAR GOD I LOVE THIS SONG WTSGD IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE ALBUMS EVER Why hasn't anyone else commented here yet???

Sleeping with Sirens – If I'm James Dean, You're Audrey Hepburn Lyrics 6 years ago
I think it's just that they were both famous people in history. They never dated or anything, lol. Like "since then we've been history" - that line backs up my interpretation.

That said, I love this song :D SWS is awesome.

Skye Sweetnam – This Is Me Lyrics 6 years ago
This song is sheer perfection. I love Skye's early stuff, it's fantastic :D And I love the meaning behind it as well <333 Skye is really terribly underrated.

Skye Sweetnam – Tidal Wave Lyrics 6 years ago
I think it's supposed to be "tsunami," haha. I have no idea about the rest. But I love this song, Skye is a musical genius, even when she was like 14 when she made this song <333

My Chemical Romance – Cemetery Drive Lyrics 6 years ago
That is EXACTLY what the lyrics sound like, OMG.

My Chemical Romance – Interlude Lyrics 6 years ago
I think it's cool that Gerard sounds a bit like Thom Yorke from Radiohead on this one, that's interesting :)

Weezer – Only in Dreams Lyrics 6 years ago
This is a really good song. And what a sexy ass bassline! :) Oh yeah, and the meaning! I agree that it's about a girl's dreams.

Selena Gomez – Spotlight Lyrics 6 years ago
She only puts autotune on this song because she liked the sound of it. And it's only on the chorus. Her voice doesn't really need it, so the autotune's not there to cover up her singing. And I actually LIKE the autotune effect on this song, I think it works well. I love this song, this album and Selena <333

Skye Sweetnam – I Don't Care Lyrics 6 years ago
I love this song, too :) Skye is just fantastic with expressing teenage struggles for uniqueness/individuality and acceptance, she's a brilliant songwriter!

Skye Sweetnam – Smoke And Mirrors Lyrics 6 years ago
This is such a beautifully-written, powerful, pop song, and one of my favorites on the amazing album that is Noise from the Basement :) And I agree with you guys that this song reminds me a lot of the kind of person I am. I love Skye <333

My Chemical Romance – Famous Last Words Lyrics 6 years ago
This is just a wonderful song. That's all I have to say :)

Cartel – Honestly Lyrics 7 years ago
I kinda love this song. The guitar at the beginning and the end is my favorite part. This is just a crazy good song :)

Katy Perry – Wide Awake Lyrics 7 years ago
This song is definitely not about her divorce OR anything to do with Imaginary Sky Daddy ("god"). It's about her becoming more aware of her surroundings and the decisions she's made in her life, and wanting to fix her mistakes and become a more-aware and realized and enlightened person.

On a side note: This is a really, REALLY good song. I don't even listen to Katy Perry's other stuff, but this is just an overall brilliant song. :)

Florence + the Machine – Falling Lyrics 7 years ago
That's a brilliant interpretation!

Scouts Of St. Sebastian – In Love Lyrics 7 years ago
I freakin' love this song. I also found out about it on GH3, but I still love this song and that's all that matters. I agree that it is important for people to find out about fantastic songs like this song, even if it be through a video game, lol.

Deerhunter – Agoraphobia Lyrics 7 years ago
I love this song. It's so relaxing and poetic. I can't get it out of my head.

Luce – Buy a Dog Lyrics 7 years ago
This song is mediocre at best, and I'm so OUTRAGED that they decided to sue Selena over this. The chorus sounds just a TINY bit like A Year Without Rain, certainly no striking similarities. COMPLETE NONSENSE is what that bs lawsuit is. A Year Without Rain is wonderful, and this song is crap!

Alex Day – Holding On Lyrics 7 years ago
I freakin' love Alex. This is one of my favorite songs of his :)

Kelly Clarkson – Dirty Little Secret Lyrics 7 years ago
I agree rosesareblue, this song is freakin' amazing. Being a bonus track, it's definitely a hidden gem. And I AM surprised no one else has commented on it!

I think the song is either about: 1) her boyfriend having cheated on her, and now he's starting to pull away from her, and she's just done with him and delighting in his failure as a boyfriend. 2) The song may even be about him doing that to his new girlfriend (that's not Kelly), and Kelly's just enjoying rubbing his mistakes in his face. :)

It seems pretty simple in its meaning :D

The Mountain Goats – Love Love Love Lyrics 7 years ago
I strongly disagree with your reasons for why Kurt committed suicide. And suicide is definitely not selfish, at least not intentionally, but it is the pinnacle of one's feelings of worthlessness and depression. Kurt killed himself because he was felt so unloved and unappreciated that he felt like he couldn't go on living. He wasn't selfish. And yes, Courtney was partly the reason for his suicide, because she didn't love him at all. And while he did love her, he couldn't go on in their marriage pretending the love he had for her was reciprocal, while it wasn't. So THAT's why he took his life. Suicide is definitely not a noble thing to do, but when one feels so down, so hopeless, it is all that they feel will take away that emotional pain.

Fleetwood Mac – Sara Lyrics 7 years ago
Here's my take on the lyrics (for the full version of the song):

Wait a minute, baby
Stay with me awhile
Said you'd give me light
But you never told me about the fire

Drowning in the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
And now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
When you build your house
Then call me, home

(Ooh-hooo, ooh-hoo)

And it was just like a great dark wing
Within the wings of a storm
I think I had met my match
He was singing,
And undoing
And undoing,
Ooh, the laces
Undoing the laces

That Sara, you're the poet in my heart
Never change, never stop
But now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
But when you build your house
Then, call me home

Hold on
The night is coming
And the starling flew for days
I'd stay home at night
All the time
I'd go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere
Ask me and I'm there, yeah
Ask me and I'm there, because I care

In the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone
They say it, doesn't matter anymore
If you build your house, then please call me home

Sara, you're the poet in my heart
Never change, and don't you ever stop
Now it's gone, no-oh, it doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house, I'll come by

(Sara, ahh-uhh)
(Sara, ahh-uhh)

All I ever wanted
Was to know that you were dreaming
((There's a heartbeat
That never really died
Never really died
Ooh, would you swallow all your pride?
Could you speak a little louder?
All I ever wanted (x2) ))

Twilight – I Caught Myself Lyrics 7 years ago
Yes, thank you XXdiehardXX! The name issue needs to be fized ASAP. Since when is this song by "Twilight"?! It's by Paramore!

Vampire Weekend – Giant Lyrics 7 years ago
I agree, with kariberryoh, your lyrics are perfect. It is most definitely "The winning cause" and "The losing cause." Thank you for posting the right lyrics.

Selena Gomez – I Don't Miss You At All Lyrics 7 years ago
This song is fantastic. I love Selena!

Kelly Clarkson – I Hate Myself For Losing You Lyrics 7 years ago
Why is this song so amazing? This is pretty much some of Kelly's best :)

The Shins – The Past And Pending Lyrics 7 years ago
Oh, how I love this song. The harmonica part is probably my favorite part of the song. I think the song is about breaking up with someone who you really loved, and who really loved you, and having that break-up hurt you and the other person so much that it nearly swears you off love forever. Obviously you could go a bit deeper than that, as with any Shins song, but that's (part of) the reason why I love the Shins so much - their lyrics are so deep that they can be interpreted so many different ways by anyone.

The Shins – The Celibate Life Lyrics 7 years ago
I just love this song. It's pretty much my favorite on Oh, Inverted World. I tear up every time I hear it :) And my favorite line is, "No skirt while chemicals danced on your head." It's just such a great line!

Phoenix – Too Young Lyrics 7 years ago
Yeah, this song was most definitely not written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. I don't know why that's there. This is a Phoenix song, not an Elton John song! WTF??!

Beach Fossils – Adversity Lyrics 7 years ago
Same thing for me, oceanic. I LOVE Beach Fossils, and this is definitely one of my favorite songs off the "What a Pleasure" EP.

Fruit Bats – The Ruminant Band Lyrics 7 years ago
How do you not love this song? It's so mellow and peaceful, and so wonderfully folk-y lol

The Coast – All Farewells Lyrics 7 years ago
I love this song! So peaceful-sounding, but the lyrics are so sad. And I love the way the song starts!

Sumo Cyco – Mercy Lyrics 7 years ago
I love this song! Skye (or Sever, her alter-ego) is an amazing musician, no matter what kind of music she's making! I can't wait for Sumo Cyco's first album!

Third Eye Blind – 10 Days Late Lyrics 7 years ago
The meaning's pretty straightforward. I just love this song!

Third Eye Blind – Slow Motion Lyrics 7 years ago
I just love this song. And 3eb. Sad, but brilliant it is

Third Eye Blind – An Ode to Maybe Lyrics 7 years ago
I love this song, it's one of my favorites on Blue :) I would interpret the song to be about someone who is very indecisive or clumsy in their life and who often makes a mess of things (things never go right for them) looking to the future and hoping they become less of a "screw-up," for lack of a better word lol.

Simple Minds – Don't You (Forget About Me) Lyrics 7 years ago
Classic '80s tune, Much love for it! :) I even loved it before I had watched The Breakfast Club!
