Robert Palmer – Want You More Lyrics 2 months ago
This is such a hidden gem by Palmer. And it describes my current impossible obsession so well. We can't be together for now, so I'm trying to forget him.

But the more I try not to think of him, the more I do. 'Close my eyes, oh there you are'. And I keep thinking about the day we met 'I remember every word, Every move I recall'... and sadly it 'Only makes me want you more.' ♡

We're not done yet. 'Whose to say what's in store?.' Maybe one day.

Cutting Crew – Any Colour Lyrics 2 months ago
For me this song is about finally finding that one person who's a freak like you... with whom you can be 100% yourself and show your true colors and crazy ideas.

I thought I had found that unicorn recently... but I let him escape to the rainbows. Without me. Maybe one day our paths will cross again and I'll know better.

'Any rainbow I'll save for you
Any colour that you like, all for you

I've waited, I've waited so long for you
To show my true colours come shining through'

The Jesus and Mary Chain – Darklands Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this song is about nihilism and how deep down life seems dark and meaningless. I first heard it as a teenager and immediately identified with it. It changed my musical taste from liking naive happy Beatles songs to showing how souls can be dark and chaotic - just like mine.

ni·hil·ism - the rejection of all religious and moral principles, in the belief that life is meaningless

Lykke Li – Better Alone Lyrics 3 months ago
This song seems to be about being with someone but still feeling lonely. And who among us hasn’t felt that at some point? The loneliness that comes from being in a relationship that is not fulfilling, and it can happen in several situations:

Sometimes you’re falling for someone, they want to keep seeing you, but you can tell they don’t feel the same way you do. You think making love might make it right, might make them fall for you too - but it never does.

Sometimes they’re just a friend with benefits, and you just feel profound loneliness after being with them.

Sometimes they’re a platonic friend but you start falling for them and they don’t reciprocate. And who’s to blame? You can’t really blame them for not wanting you.

Until one day you realize the heartache is not worth it and you have to say goodbye.

'I'm better alone than lonely (lonely, lonely)
I'm better alone than lonely here with you
So lonely here

Lonely, I'm better all alone'

Halsey – Sorry Lyrics 4 months ago
I think this song is about people like me who have what's called in psychology "insecure attachement". Some of us are anxious in relationships, some of us become avoidants. Some of us switch between both. Here's how it works:

We crave love yet we do all the things that sabotage it due to our childhood issues - as it's clear in the song: we keep our partners at arm's length, we want them one day and push them away the next. We don't really believe people are really falling for us or love us, so we kick them before they have a chance to do so themselves. "I run away when things are good". It's unconscious, so not really a choice. We end up leaving people even when we love them. It's bad that way.

I doubt Halsey knows she might have this issue but she sounds like textbook insecurely attached :)

Guillemots – madeup love song #43 Lyrics 5 months ago
This song talks about how everything suddenly becomes beautiful and poetic when you're falling in love with someone - you see poetry in silly things - "Now there's poetry in an empty coke can".

And it usually comes from nowhere - you meet someone when you're not expecting or suddenly you realize you like someone that is not your usual type - "The best things come from nowhere".

But there's also a bitter side to falling for someone when you don't know how they feel about you "I love you I don't think you care"...

Hopefully you realize they do care, and all the poetry makes even more sense:
"The best things come from nowhere,
I can't believe you care." <3

Peter Gabriel – Love To Be Loved Lyrics 5 months ago
Everyone in the comments says the song is self explanatory, but it's not. They're thinking it's about simply wanting to be loved, longing for someone, etc... but it's not just that.

Between the lines Gabriel seems to describe something I learned about recently. A psychological issue called attachment style theory, caused by childhood trauma and fear of intimacy as well as fear of abandonment. It's super common but hard to pinpoint as it's very unconscious... I'd never expect to have it yet here I am.

One of the sub-types is about pushing away the ones you love most. It's a self fulfilling prophecy where you long so much to love and be loved, but from these childhood traumas you're also so afraid of being abandoned, and you act in the exact ways that will cause people to abandon you.

When you act on that way, it's your inner child doing it:
I cry the way that babies cry

Saying words you don't really mean (it comes from your psyche and it's an unconscious process:
Words, they climb all over you / Til they uncover you / From where you hide

All this usually leads to a breakup when you didn't really mean for it to happen. Hence you feel abandoned which is the thing you feared most; the process usually repeats itself throughout life over and over, until maybe one day you find out about it and try to break the cycle... Until then this happens over and over:

And in this moment, I need to be needed
When my self-esteem is sinking, I like to be liked
In this emptiness and fear,
I want to be wanted
Cause I love to be loved
I love to be loved [Repeat x2]
Oh I love to be loved

This old familiar craving
I've been here before, this way of behaving
Don't know who the hell I'm saving anymore
Let it pass let it go let it leave
From the deepest place I grieve
This time I believe

And I let go [Repeat x2]
I can let go of it
Though it takes all the strength in me
And all the world can see
I'm losing such a central part of me
I can let go of it
You know I mean it
You know that I mean it
I recognize how much I've lost
But I cannot face the cost
Cause I love to be loved

Yes I love to be loved
I love to be loved

CHVRCHES – Afterglow Lyrics 5 months ago
I believe this song is about a relationship that is over and what's left of it is black and white, contours, traces. She remembers the light and shape they've created together now that the relationship is only about contours.

She thinks about how her life has been so full of highs and lows in love, and how it's hard to see the bright side after a breakup. They are both waiting for the breakup afterglow to erase their bad breakup feelings and perhaps finally move on.

I think the last part "I've given up all I can" relates to how she gave up all she could to try and save the relationship but it still didn't work. Or perhaps how she is trying to give up on the great memories of the relationship just to be able to move on.

Wild Beasts – End Come Too Soon Lyrics 5 months ago
These lyrics have been haunting me specially the last part. I was seeing someone recently that I liked a lot, and I am still trying to figure out why it ended so soon as it was just so incredibly fun being together. It doesn't matter that I was the one who ended it, out of fear of what was clearly to come. Sometimes you meet the right person at the wrong time. This part translates the agony of losing someone you enjoyed being with:

"End come, too soon
It comes too soon
It comes too soon
Too soon, too soon
Too soon, too soon
It's too soon, it's too soon
It's too soon, it's too soon
It's too soon..
The end, it comes too soon
Too soon, too soon
Too soon..
The end it came and went too soon"

My Morning Jacket – Only Memories Remain Lyrics 6 months ago
I believe this song is about how everything in life comes to an end - including that old, big, sweet, lost love you never forgot.

Nature, people and life itself can erase all the places you've been to, even our lives will be erased one day - but when we close our eyes and remember our sweet love, the spirit of those places - the moments shared remain. Ah, the memories...

"Only memories remain, yeah yeah
Only memories remain"

Isn't it amazing how things that are immaterial can make our heart beat so fast? Almost as amazing as loving someone ;)

I've heard this amazing song for the first time today and I know it will be in loop mode for a good while.

Bee Gees – You Win Again Lyrics 6 months ago
@[Egger3rd:28931] Totally agree with your interpretation, besides the sex part. I think "You couldn't give me what everybody needs" relates to emotional traumas some of us get from childhood that hinders us to give someone the kind of love and support they need in a relationship, until we work on it. He makes it clear he will wait for her to work on the issues she has - so for me it's one of the deepest love songs around - to have the patience to wait for and love someone so much that you're willing to wait, instead of just dropping a complicated relationship.

The Dears – You and I Are A Gang of Losers Lyrics 6 months ago
The song title ties it all together... they are "losers" - both considered weirdos by traditional society. But when they're together they feel they think alike (got the same heart) and they're different from all the normal people... They may seem like "losers" to others, but they know better - being weirdos is better than being like everyone else. It makes me remember of all the weirdos I was lucky enough to meet and fall for.

'Cause we
We got the same heart
And we
We got the same heart

You and I are on the outside
Of all of this
You and I are on the other side

The Chemical Brothers – Wide Open (feat. Beck) Lyrics 6 months ago
I'm finally wide open to someone - vulnerable; showing emotions; slowly opening up about my issues. Open for love after years guarding myself.

But as soon as I open up, you lose interest.

You may still be here (for now) but starting to drift and slip away from me.

I tried. It didn't work. You killed it. "I couldn't see it anymore".

Makes me wonder - will we ever see each other again? Maybe. But I am not sure I will be as wide open.

My Vitriol – Under The Wheels Lyrics 6 months ago
This song marked an important romance for me at the time. It was "our song". I probably listened to it a 1000 times. I find the melody so hauntingly beautiful it still gives me butterflies in the stomach.

He was my first internet romance. Interestingly although he was quite head over heels for me for some time, he also ended up throwing me under the wheels. It made sense to hear it during the limerence period but also after the heartbreak.

I'm head over heels
I'm under the wheels
I'm head over heels
For now

Jem – Stay Now Lyrics 6 months ago
I think this is about being in an *almost* relationship where you love them but for some reason they want to keep it casual and non-committed.

Cigarettes After Sex – Affection Lyrics 6 months ago
I think this song is about a new relationship and getting to know someone.

It reminds me of my most recent * almost* relationship; in fact CAS was perhaps "our" band. He once sent me this song, and it made so much sense to me as the main word to describe what I fell for him back then as "affection".

The beginning of the end was on the night one of us drank too much and said things they shouldn't have. Still, the affection was there and will probably always be. It's a shame, I was constantly thinking of him and could have maybe fallen for him. Just one more of those relationships you will always wonder "what if?"...

I think of you,
I want you too,
I'd fall for you

It's affection always...

CHVRCHES – Never Say Die Lyrics 6 months ago
This song is about bailing when you're in a new relationship.

It was promising - it was supposed to be fun and new; it had the hope of being different from all the other people they've been dating. She had a feeling it could be true. That's what he implied and that's what she was hoping for:

"Wasn't it gonna be fun and wasn't it gonna be new?
Wasn't it gonna be different and wasn't it gonna be true?
Didn't you say that? Didn't you say that?"

But at some point his arrogance took over ("to play at playing God") and he stopped looking at her/the relationship and value it as he should have. That killed it for her: "But I'm falling in, I'm falling out".

When he kinda bailed - maybe by wanting to continue dating other people while still seeing her - she declared she's definitely out. She was really into him, but it wasn't love yet, and therefore she is not wishing death on him - as we sometimes do when someone breaks our heart:

Weren't you trying forgiveness and weren't you trying to stay?
Weren't you trying to look up and weren't you trying to pray?
Didn't you say that? Didn't you say that?
Didn't you say that? Didn't you say that?

All you want is to play at playing God
But I'm falling in, I'm falling out
All you need is to play at playing God
And I'm falling in, I'm falling out

Never, never, never, ever
Never, ever, ever say die
(Didn't you say that? Didn't you say that?)
Never, never, never, ever
Never, ever, ever say die
(Didn't you say that? Didn't you say that?)

The Head and the Heart – Let's Be Still Lyrics 6 months ago
This song reminds me of my *almost* relationship - we were both really into music, and it became intense very quickly. But somehow our communication also broke down very fast. My fears didn't help... as the song says the world is not forgiving of them.

If only we realized that all we needed was to shut up and be still... let things flow.

"The world's just spinning
A little too fast
If things don't slow down soon
we might not last
The world's not forgiving
Of everyone's fears

Just for a moment let's be still"

Hooverphonic – Vinegar & Salt Lyrics 6 months ago
This talks about how being too honest in love affairs sometimes hurts a possible magnificent relationship.

I just cut things off with someone I went on a few dates and really liked because he said one thing that I can't get over. He said it too early... he didn't have to discuss this kind of thing yet as we were not in time to commit to each other yet.

It hurt like hell, and I wish he had (white) lied for a little longer. I didn't need to know that information just yet. Now I am left here - the vinegar and the salt. And no oil to dissolve my frustrations.

The Alan Parsons Project – Don't Answer Me Lyrics 6 months ago
This song is about how fragile relationships and love can be... how you can leave someone for no good reason in a moment of madness and regret it forever.

When he realizes what he had lost, he tries to fix things, to talk with her and get her back. But she won't answer. She got too hurt by his previous behavior or words. She might still miss him, but decided that it's better to stay in "her island" than to risk suffering over him all over again. She "wins" the game. He loses, as she's gone forever. But in reality they both lost.

He keeps wishing someone could change the things they've said and done - maybe if he did believe in this magic, she would answer him.

The Alan Parsons Project – Sooner Or Later Lyrics 6 months ago
This song is about new love and getting to know someone new. You try to say the right things, to get closer to them, only for them to move away further or play games. You start to play games too, and tell lies, and pretend you don't care.

She doesn't seem that concerned "didn't want to know", nor wants to talk about it... but she's up for a big surprise. He's thinking - maybe it's better to just leave so she will be the last thing on his mind... no more hurt... "sooner or later" - when he gets the guts to finally leave despite maybe realizing he's falling for her.

Sleeping At Last – Venus Lyrics 6 months ago
I think this song is an analogy between planet Venus, the Roman goddess and finding true love on Earth.

"Venus was the Roman goddess, whose functions encompassed love, beauty, desire, sex, fertility, prosperity and victory. (...) She embodied sex, love, beauty, enticement, seduction, and persuasive female charm among the community of immortal gods."

His Earthily object of love in this song (a real woman) encompasses all the qualities the Roman goddess possesses, and he, the "astronomer", is mesmerized when instead of finding the planet he was looking for in the sky, she is the one who finds him on Earth... ("astronomy in reverse, it was me who was discovered") finally finding love and feeling whole "I was a billion pieces til you pulled me into focus")

"And suddenly I see you.
Suddenly I see you.

I was a billion little pieces
'til you pulled me into focus.
Astronomy in reverse,
It was me who was discovered.

(I thought I’d never find you,
When suddenly I saw you.)

Like a telescope,
I will pull you so close,
'til no space lies in between.

Then suddenly I see you."

LCD Soundsystem – Oh Baby Lyrics 6 months ago
For me this tells a story of a new love where things are not working as expected.

He is in a dark place and not ready for love, and his lover is waiting patiently for him to resolve his issues. Meanwhile she's into him, but feels like she's in a bad dream, that coming to him could be a bad thing and do her harm.

She then runs away from him and the potential relationship goes south "We move like a bad scene, Shot in the dark"

He begs her to wake him from the situation he's in (post breakup and hurting or maybe being an addict due to the hurt of a breakup), to waken his love life and heart are dormant, "waiting for him".

She tries to escape this toxic situation but still comes to him... because she misses him when she's alone at home. He asks her to give in to him, that this is just a temporary "bad dream" - he will make things work out.

He is not ready for love "my love plays wait and see" but he begs her on his knees to stay - he says he's clean (of drugs, or an ex lover / past relationships that didn't work out) and his love life waits.

But she can't take whatever he's going through and his impossibility to really be in a relationship with her, and she leaves anyway and it feels like his love life crumbles. He begs her to come back... that they will find a way to work things out, even if not in a traditional way "a side door into the dark".

Snow Patrol – Heal Me Lyrics 6 months ago
I think this is about dating and then finally finding love, and how we sometimes feel we've found the right person and they can "heal" us and our insecurities.

New love feels like a siren roaring all the time, something we just can't get away from. It feels like a drug rushing through your veins. Their name feels like a song we know well. They sound like... home.

And maybe, just maybe, this person can heal us. Maybe they can save us from keeping being wasted in the arms of all the other dates we don't really care about. Because they seem to be what we were looking for and didn't even know.

"Can you heal me baby?
I've been wasted in the arms of everyone
I wasn't looking for you
But I think maybe I was and didn't know"

Snow Patrol – Life and Death Lyrics 6 months ago
I feel this song is about new relationships, how the world feels suddenly alive, but also about feeling insecure in them, and the breakup that usually follows. How internal fears can get in the way of something that could be good and ruin everything.

"Let's get, get out of the way of us"

It just happened to me and I miss him dearly.

"Don't want to be this far
Don't want to be so far from you"

I intentionally left the door open though... so who knows where it might end?

"Nowhere don't know how it ends
For both of us
But why would you need to know the end, my dear?
So don't crash into everything
To make your point
Let's get, get out of the way of us"

I made my point but I wish I didn't crash into everything like I did, getting in the way of us.

Afghan Whigs – My Curse Lyrics 6 months ago
I've got this album when it came out in 1993 and it's been one of my fave since, with My Curse being my fave song on it.

Because of Marcy Mays' vocals and me being a female I take it personally:

I feel like it's about a BDSM relationship, where she is the submissive ("slave"), but she ends up falling for him and has to hide ("lie") about it every time they "get undressed". She finds a way to hide it so well that a day comes where she feels she can "smile now" because he will never find out... that she loves him.

She likes him so much that kissing him feels like punishment - his kisses "scourge" her. How powerful is that phrase, and so many others in this song?

She likes him cursing her in bed (as in any good kinky relationship), but also feels like he's her "Curse" - she loves him and being submissive to him in the bedroom, but for some reason that is not explained in the lyrics, he won't give her what she really wants... his love. He's her "temptation" that comes from hell and not from heaven, which she obsesses about and can't resist or get away from.

This is a song about a relationship that's breaking up.

And when your beloved is drifting all you're left with is a "boring kind of anger" and sleeplessness because the person you still love is there but is not really there.
