Jimmy Eat World – Cautioners Lyrics 10 years ago
I'd always loved this song and find the lyrics extremely beautiful and sad but i had never related to it from personal experience. And then I met him.
He was such a jerk, he tear my heart and made me love him and I knew it would never even began even if he cared even if I was in love. He would change his mind, he would walk away. And I became the Cautioner Jim describes so perfectly and poeticly in here.

Jimmy Eat World – A Sunday Lyrics 10 years ago
I think that Jim uses "Sunday" as just another way of saying closure. tome is about a relationship going wrong and having to change the course you were heading to. Like something that left as unexpectedly as it came. Like life with it's constant twists and turns that makes us start again and having to learn how to live with that.

Jimmy Eat World – 23 Lyrics 10 years ago
I think it's about two people who love each other but both are afraid to take the first step and so they let time slide on them "It was my turn to decide, I knew this was our time. no one else will have me like you do, no one else will have me, only you." Is about letting go before ever starting because fear is holding you steady. It's so sad to think how many oportunities we let slide because of fear.
I think the part of "you'll sit alone forever if you wait for the right time, what are you hoping for? I'm here I'm now I'm ready..." is just about life, realizing that things aren't always easy or how we wanted them to be, especially at the beginning of a relationship, but we have to make the best of it with what've got because if we wait for it to be perfect we will miss so many chances.
"Don't give away the end, the one thing that stays mine..." Man this is just beautiful. JEW are geniuses and this is one of their best songs.

Death Cab for Cutie – Passenger Seat Lyrics 10 years ago
wow. to me this is the best love song on earth. i love the way it's simple and deep at the same time. The imagery is beautiful, I can actually picture two people, on a car ride, amongst a comfortable silence that only comes between two people that love each other. When I listen to it,I can actually picture Ben looking outside the window, immersed in his own thoughts, ranting out loud without over-analizing what he's going to say. without caring what the person driving him home is going to think. To me this song is the best description of love. Comfortable silence, sharing thoughts with another person as they appear in your head without processing them.
My favorite part is "I ask and you smile, with my feet on the dash the world doesn't matter." to me is saying that when you have found love in is purest way you don't need anything else, and how pretty much everything can be beautiful.

Death Cab for Cutie – Brothers on a Hotel Bed Lyrics 11 years ago
I think that when he is saying ¨who turned your way and saw something he was not looking for, both a beginning and an end¨ He is refering to the first time he saw that special person. Maybe he was committed back then but when he saw her his world lost all his balance thus the ¨beginning" of a new relationship and the end of another one.

Guillemots – madeup love song #43 Lyrics 11 years ago
I love everything about this song. I think that it summarizes what love is just so perfectly. The way it doesn't makes much sense "I love you through sparks and shining dragons" and how when it happens everythings can seem beautiful. "an empty coke can, a burnt out caravan."
or the way it shows that when you love someone you notice the most little details like "the symmetry in their northern grin."
God and I have to agree that it he sings with such feeling that she cares, it makes you feel so happy for the singer! god it's amazing. I love this.

Box Car Racer – Elevator Lyrics 12 years ago
I think this song has two meanings. One quite simple that is explicit about a guy jumping off a building as he nears the concrete he watches people staring and turning their backs as he is about to make impact with the floor.

The second meaning is like a methaphor. About a guy falling out off grace (that is represented as the building) and the concrete is the simulation of his downfall. The people turning their backs on him are people giving up on him when he need them the most. I always liked this second meaning better but... Im not sure of which tom was refering.

Green Day – 80 Lyrics 14 years ago
I also love Billie Joe he is PERFECT! I saw them two weeks ago on stage and they are AWESOMEE!!! i like this song a lot, Kerplunk is one of their best albums to my criterian.
This song is about losing control when you are near or thinking about the person you love. And everything that person does changes your way of thinking or acting.
I wish I was Adie!!! I love Billie!

Green Day – 2,000 Light Years Away Lyrics 14 years ago
Minifin4BillieJoe you are totally right! I looOve Billie Joe more than any other musician, and Aw I like this song a lot! I get the emotion of loving someone and being sitting in your room late at night thinking about him.
Maybe Billie is talking about a girl that lived far away, but it doesn't exactly has to mean that. It could be the sensation of loving someone so much and having that person in front of you, but realizing you are never going to have him.
I didn't knew what malakite meant, but now that I do I think it has something to do with his eyes. Billie Joe has green eyes, and the phrase "She holds my malakite so tight.." Can mean that he loves so much the girl that she is the only one he can really see.

Ramones – Blitzkrieg Bop Lyrics 14 years ago
I enjoy listening to this song. My story with these one is kind of peculiar. I never had heard it before, and one day my little cousin (that is addicted to Game Cube) brought to my house a game about skaters and during the game they keep playing and playing this song, but I never figured out what was the name of it.
Weeks passed and I had resigned myself to never knew the name of it. But this past 5 of December I was waiting in the crowd because I was going to watch Green Day on stage (They ROCKED by the way!) and before the show started they place this song and everyone went mad and started jumping... and that's how I figured out the name of this great song and I download it yesterday and I can't stop hearing it now!

Anyway... I don't really know what it means but I sense the idea of a crowd of people going mad and jumping because they are waiting to see their favorite band play (just what happened to me :D) It just makes me want to JUMP!

The Verve – Bittersweet Symphony Lyrics 14 years ago
This is a really powerful song, is just so deep. It's trying to tell that everyone sees life in a different way and everyone takes different pads, but at the end the pads of life are inter-connected, and these inter-connections are the ones that make life worth while.
"No change, I can change..." Expresses the inability all of the human beings have for leaving behind the person they are to become someone better. And at the same time it transmits that necessity of becoming someone better.
"I'm a million different people from one day to the next." This line is trying to tell the hypocrisy we all possess, and the way we change ourselves when we are with a determinate person or facing certain situation.
"Well I've never prayed, But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah. I need to hear some sounds that recognise the pain in me, yeah." This line talks about the hard times in line... it gives a feeling of sadness is just so depressing. The first sentence is when you feel like all hope is lost so you find yourself doing things you usually won't, like praying.
The second sentence describes that when we are depressed we just need of a sad song that can define better the way we feel than what we can define ourselves. The previous interpretation leads me to the next line:
"I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind , I feel free now" This comes when you are not depressed anymore, when you have moved on.

As I said it before this song ROCKS! It describes perfectly what life's like; Bittersweet...

SR-71 – Alive Lyrics 14 years ago
This is one of the most kick ass songs in the album! the change of tunes is great. It's about a woman that's involve in a relashionship with a violent man. One night she decides to leave "the bruises far behind" so she drives away "and every white line says good bye."
"The night she never felt so alive even though it feels so cold outside It's the first time I've ever seen her smile." She is finally happy for leaving him.
"See another day in each new sun, cause your life has just begun" Is one of my favorite lines in the song. It just transmits the feeling of moving on...

Green Day – Who Wrote Holden Caulfield? Lyrics 14 years ago
The song is amazing,as well as the book in which is based on. Is a very good description of Holden Caulfield, and most of the teenagers. We feel confused, we try our best to improve our faults, and we feel frustrated if we keep failing. Is all about trying and not being able to move forward. To be stuck in some determinated point.

Green Day – Wake Me Up When September Ends Lyrics 14 years ago
It's about billie's father dead "Like my father come to pass..." What he is trying to say is that he lost part of his childhood and of his inocence when that happened. "Summer has come and pass the inocent can never last."
Probably his father died in September, so that why he doesn't like being "awake" at that time of year cause he "is drenched in his pain again."
The years had gone so fast, but there are times in which he feels he still has 10 years and then he realizes that time had flied and he is father is not around anymore.

Is one of my favorites of the new album. You get to feel the pain he tries to transmit.

Hey! this song kick ask! 'Put my last quarter on I play authority song' Love that line... he doesn't got more money but the last he's got he spents in a song he loves. He sees this girl and he doesn't care about her noticing he likes her.
"Honesty or mystery? tell me I'm not scare anymore... I got no secret purpose, I don't seem obvious do I?"

JEW is BRILLIANT!

Jimmy Eat World – Cautioners Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is just beautiful and so relaxing. I think is about being insecure about a relashionship you want to begin.
"I watch you go from left to right, I follow you all night." This part reminds me of how you can spend the whole nigh watching that person you are in love with and be completely happy.
Like many had said is when the person you love finally accepts to feel that same way for you. But you know that it won't last long, that on "monday" he/she will walk away from you so you try to make your "peace with distance."
So emotional... so deep... so Jimmy Eat World!

Third Eye Blind – The Background Lyrics 14 years ago
Wow I love this song! is just so... beautiful.
Is about a guy who broke-up with her girlfriend and he misses her a lot.
So everywhere he goes, or everything he does reminds him of her.
"I'm hanging on your words like I always used to do" is holding onto somebodys ways... he still does what they (him & his girlfriend) did together.
"The words they use so lightly I only feel for you" is one of the best lines... he wants her to know that words came out so easily when it talked about his feelings towards her. I love Stephans style! Great song! great Cd! Great band!

Goldfinger – The Last Time Lyrics 14 years ago
Is one of the best songs in 'hang ups' is all about loving someone even though all of his/her flaws and mistakes "if I could turn back time I'd look you in the eye then I might see your lies." Is like wondering if that person is going to be able to love you.

Goldfinger – My Head Lyrics 14 years ago
"I don't have much to say, but it's the tenth call that I made" Is just a line that hits me... is like when you want to hear somebody's voice, and you don't know what to say to that person, but still you call just to hear them breathing. So cute!
Is about waiting for somebody who doesn't care about you, who just playing with you. But even though you know that you can't avoid feeling the way you do.
There are some lyrics missing:
"Is it something that I lack? Why won't you ever call me back?" Is quite sad, you wonder what is it that you are missing, why is that person unable to love you?
"This obsession here today isn't pushing you away"

The Goo Goo Dolls – Sympathy Lyrics 14 years ago
Great Song!! is really profound, is one of my favorite ones. I think is about liking someone that has a very peculiar personality, and you are not able to reach that person, no matter how much effort you place in trying to catch him/her.
He doesn't know where he belongs, nowhere feels like home, I've been there.
I think he is talking about a person who steals and copy all his ideas, all of his thoughts.
"Where the hell did I think I was" is the feeling of being in a place you identify with, and suddenly you realize you never really belong to it.
He wants to reach his dreams, but it gets so hard sometimes.

The Ataris – In This Diary Lyrics 14 years ago
Powerful song this one is. Every single time I hear it, it makes me wish to go and live what he lived. He describes so well the feeling of having the best time of your life, of adoring every minute, every breath. To enjoy your youth, because that’s the time when you really get to know the world. Oh God! There haven’t been another song in the world that makes me want to go out with my friends to sing, scream, laugh, cry. The end always makes me sad “2015 riverside is time to say good bye, get on the bus it’s time go.” Kris really transmits the feeling of sadness about leaving that place. Is like all the best things in life, it have to end so you get to appreciate those moments more.

The Ataris – The Hero Dies In This One Lyrics 14 years ago
He really writes deep stuff, not like many bands. I think people should focus more on bands like The Ataris, Third Eye Blind, Jimmy Eat World, instead of giving all the credit to "musicians" who can't even write their songs. I like this song a lot, is really sad, and emotional. I think it talks about when someone you loved just died. You wonder how "you are supposed to carry on", but you know "You most go on". "I miss the seasons and the comfort of your smile" it gives me the feeling of missing someone who is not there anymore, and his/her advices and smile. Is just such a moving song. Kris is a really great lyrisist.
"As I look out at these fairgrounds, I remember how our family split apart." is one of the most sad lines of the song. I'd always picture him being a kid and watching the fairgrounds with his parents, feeling happy, and then returning to those grounds years later and finding out how everything has change.
"I don't think I ever told you, But I know you always did your best."reminds me of being afraid of expressing our true feelings toward a person, and in some way knowing that person know exactly what you feel.
"Stay who you are" I wish everyone payed attention to this line, I think that no matter what had happen, you should always be yourself, that's the only way you'll be happy.

The Ataris – Summer '79 Lyrics 14 years ago
Cool song from a cool band! Is the feeling of hanging out with your best friend, watching the person you like, showing off so that person get to notice you.
"We are the champions playing loud on the radio station, everyone sing along this anthems of our generation... let's creates anthems of our own tonight." That line means he wish to be an artist-- which by the way he is-- and create songs people sing along and adore.
Well, I do both of the previous ones ;)

The Ataris – Unopened Letter To The World Lyrics 14 years ago
Is one of the best songs of the album. For me, it's about someone who is lonely "this table is set for one" and he/she is questioning what will happen if he/she dies. Will somebody notice? Will somebody care? I think is a very personal song-- as most of you had said, is a very personal album.
He is wondering if his songs will live after he has die, so he will always be remembered, even though it's to late to get an answer.

The Ataris – Takeoffs And Landings Lyrics 14 years ago
This song just hits me! It really gives me chills! Is SOOO romantic and beautiful.
I think is about being in the same exact place you want to be "If you could go anywhere right now where will you go? and will you miss me when you get there cause there's no place I rather be."
It describes perfectly the sensation you have when you are in a different part of the world missing someone, wishing that person was by your side, because she/he makes you feel like home.
Yes, I agree, the line of the blue eyes is the best one it just hits me so much.
"Fell asleep on Tuesday woke up Monday afternoon I slept right through your International Date Line " is one of my favorite lines...
Is just really amazing how can Kris gets to write so profound things out of ordinary ones.

The Ataris – So Long, Astoria Lyrics 14 years ago
The ataris is a great band, and this song is one of the best ones I've ever heard. Is just about describing the best days of your life and remembering everything you have done.
I find so deep especially the last part, about wanting to find a buried treasure, but instead of finding that, you get to find yourself. Is just about life... about sharing every living moment with someone special and wishing it'll never ends.
"Life is only as good as the memories we make" is the most true line I've heard.
"We said that we will never fit in when we were really just like them, does rebellion ever make a difference?" Is an amazing line also.
The Ataris rule!

Jimmy Eat World – What Would I Say To You Now Lyrics 14 years ago
Yeah I think is when we are afraid of talking to the person we like, cause we don't know if our words are gonna make sense and we don't know what to say.

I like the lyrics Jim writes very good!

Train – Let It Roll Lyrics 14 years ago
I like this song is just simple and cool... I think it expresses how hard is to get over someone you love and now is not here with you... so you just kept thinking how once upon a time you had them.
I like the way he interpretates the seasons passing and he is still thinking on that person.
the part of; "when the summer comes Iwill pretend that I don´t notice That this is when I notice most of all" is one of the best lines... I think is how sometimes we pretend to get over something or somebody when really deep inside of us we are just burning and we want to cry out loud that they are still on our minds.

Third Eye Blind – Another Life Lyrics 14 years ago
Woah! I'm the first one commenting yay! I love this song! is really great since the first note to the last chord. 3eb is the most kick ass band on earth! they just rock! stephan's way of writing is so natural...
this song is like being missundertsood, because you are different and you prefer to lock yourself in your world than have to change.
"a stranger to the people I know" is like when you grew apart from your friends, and you stop knowing them and so do them.
It also talks about passing through hard times at the point we think life has become pointless.
I like the line of "Time goes by and I realice that I'm alright, you thought nothing will be the same but life comes round again" is basically saying that sometimes the dark days blinds us and we can't see the light... but sooner or latter something will begin to glow and everything will be normal again.
The chorus I believe is saying this life is so twisting and weird, that it changes with the time so is like living many lives in one life.
"To see you again is like another life, i feel the whole thing happen" is my favorite line! describing how by just watchin a person or hearing a song you have forgotten your mind transports you imediatly to other memories, to other time.
I LOVE 3EB!! STEPHEN IS SOOOOOO HOT!

The All-American Rejects – Drive Away Lyrics 14 years ago
I love this song, is my favorite of the album. It is very originally written... the chorus is SOOO good
"I wish I could drive away to the sunset back to the day that we first met" I love that phrase. Is like wanting to return to a time when everything was good like to have a second chance to start all over again. "Better say hello, don't you dare say goodbye " is not wanting the relashionship to be over. "I'll write sincerely yours and sign my name
P.S. I love you forever and today" he wants to send a letter to tell her he will love her forever and today, that line totally hits me out! great song!

Blink-182 – Anthem, Pt. 2 Lyrics 15 years ago
Hey! this song is REALLY cool! I love it, one of the bests of the album...

Blink-182 – Anthem Lyrics 15 years ago
Ok you stupid people critizing blink; in the first place, if you don't like the band then what the hell are you doing here? don't you got something better to do? I like punk rock music, and just because blink-182 had become famous doesn't mean they are not punk... I hate when people like you thinks that just because they are TALENTED and had make it big his music has stop being good... They actually rock! I love them... and believe me, I can distinguish between a pop band and a punk band. Simple Plan pisses punks off... why is that? because they are NOT punkers, Avril Lavigne pisses punks even more... why is that? because she THINKS she is punk and she's not, because she sings worse than a sick dog, and because she is so stupid!
I know bands like; The get up kids, the starting line, sugarcult, taking back sunday, green day, the-all american rejects, fenix tx, NOFX, mxpx so don't fuck me, by saying I don't know what punk is; Blink is punk! only that they're a bit more famous that the bands I had mentioned up there, but that does not makes them less...
Blinky is right... this song is about one Tom's friend that he was making a party because his parents were out of town, so Tom invited all the school because his band was playing. But the parents of Tom's friend arrived that same night so they ended with the party and punished the poor guy. I think is about living a very difficult age... when you feel like 'you don't belong' and you just want to leave to some other place in which you don't have to answer to anyone... Cool song, even though, they had better ones.
