The Smashing Pumpkins – Stand Inside Your Love Lyrics 18 years ago
billy said it was about his girlfriend, and that it was one of those songs that nearly writes itself. this is me and my exboyfriend's song.. always makes me miss him every time i hear it.

FAVORITE PART: "..and for the last time, you're everything that i want and asked for - you're all that i dream.."

submissions
The Smashing Pumpkins – Beautiful Lyrics 19 years ago
definitely. i think he misses this person more than anything in the world, and he wishes they could be together. if you listen, he says "don't let your life wrap up around you. don't forget to call, whenever. i'll be here just waiting for you, i'll be under your stars forever.." and i think he's trying to tell her that he doesn't want life to bring her down, so to 'call' because he'll always be there for her.

Bright Eyes – Touch Lyrics 19 years ago
too familiar.

FAVORITE PART: "you are new and near now to someone you used to love when you were young; when all was gold and you two touched and felt the flutter underneath your skin. you stood in glowing rooms, the light dripping from both of you. and nothing since has felt as radiant or real" AND "and there is nothing more i want than just one night that's free of doubt and sadness"

submissions
Yo La Tengo – Autumn Sweater Lyrics 19 years ago
tubesocks, your definition was equally as great. i liked how you pointed out the "its a waste of time if i can't smile easily like in the beginning", because i relate to that part the most.

personally, i imagined this song to be something like what would happen if i saw an old friend of mine (someone who i was never officially with, but we were more than friends). i'm still not quite sure what happened to us, but we started fading away.. and then, i see him at school again after a summer apart, and it was something like this song. i really relate to it, especially since i want to rekindle a friendship, at least. that's what i get out of it, anyway. brings back memories..

FAVORITE PART: [depends on mood]

Desaparecidos – What's New for Fall Lyrics 19 years ago
this song accurately reflects the superficial need to be beautiful (in other people's eyes). although many people find real happiness in things like make up and clothes, i share the sarcasm in these lyrics. desaparecidos rocks.

FAVORITE PART: "i don't think she likes me.." AND [the random bits of conversation between the two girls]

Jimmy Eat World – Sweetness Lyrics 19 years ago
i very much enjoyed rockwell's take on this song, even though i still don't really see it that way. that's happened to me before, rockwell, and the only thing i can tell you is that things get better.. in the meantime, at least allow your emotions to provide creative comfort and productivity. yay for poetry and lyrics!

Desaparecidos – The Happiest Place on Earth Lyrics 19 years ago
i see what you're saying, cdconn. maybe i would've gone about it in a different way, but i like how you were passionate about what you believe in.. its something i really admire in people.

submissions
Desaparecidos – Man and Wife, the Latter (Damaged Goods) Lyrics 19 years ago
i think you misread me, cdconn - i definitely agree with you about jimmy eat world. i don't think they were intentionally mainstreamed, i think they were happened upon, but i didn't like how they redid "sweetness". that sort of gave me a bad vibe, for some reason.

ah, i understand now.. thanks for the definition, i just had no idea what it meant.

George W. Bush – My Question Lyrics 19 years ago
honestly deftones girl, i don't know who would do better. gore didn't seem like a great candidate either.. i felt that the election was a vote for 'the lesser of two evils', so to say. there's no need to get fiesty, these are all opinions, right? besides, i was trying to help you out.

submissions
George W. Bush – My Question Lyrics 19 years ago
although i don't agree with you, deftones girl (and the use of explicatives is a bit unnecessary) i think its cool that you're sticking up for what you believe in. come on guys.. its september 11. whether like it or not, bush is the president and we'll just have to deal with it. as idiotic and unfit to run a country as he is, he's doing the best he can.

Collective Soul – The World I Know Lyrics 19 years ago
come on, you guys.. everyone has their own opinions. no need to be rude, just accept that other people have the right to say what they'd like and focus on the music. i'm really glad that this song helped tarvis and gnrfmyles; that's what music's all about.

FAVORITE PART:

Desaparecidos – Man and Wife, the Latter (Damaged Goods) Lyrics 19 years ago
twee? what do you mean, cdconn?

jimmy eat world is good, but i get a different feeling from them now that they're 'mainstream'. i hope that never happens to desaparecidos or bright eyes, but staying humble is always something i saw in indie rock that i admire.

submissions
Desaparecidos – The Happiest Place on Earth Lyrics 19 years ago
everyone's entitled to their own opinions. how 'influential' an artist is has nothing to do with how many other musicians copied or emulated their style (or how popular they are), its how they affected you. everyone deserves the ears to listen to music and have an opinion about it..

submissions
Jimmy Eat World – Sweetness Lyrics 19 years ago
i've been in love with this song for years.. i guess it depends on what kind of mood you're in, and what you're doing and such but sometimes i get the feeling like this song could be about god. i'm agnostic existentialist, so its not because i believe in god, but the lyrics sort of hint at it for me. i don't doubt that this song could also be about a relationship or drugs.. that's the great thing about music. it means whatever you want it to mean, and its different for different people.

FAVORITE PART: "i'm still running away, i won't play your hide and seek game" AND "what a dizzy dance.."

Beulah – Gravity's Bringing Us Down Lyrics 19 years ago
actually, i think it is "cocked". but whatever it is, this song is still awesome.. maybe i'm taking it out of context because of situations i find myself in, but i think this song is about realizing someone you fell in love with is really toying with you and your emotions. gosh, i love beulah..

FAVORITE PART: "hey! would ya say, i'm on the rebound? watch me fall at the speed of sound. your trigger finger's cocked, and i'm feeling weak; open wide, i'm paralyzed" AND "i'm just lonely, i'm just lonely, i'm just lonely.."

Norah Jones – No Easy Way Down Lyrics 19 years ago
another wonderful song by norah that describes hardship. even though bad thigs happen, and its a hard way back, you will get there. endurance is a virtue.

FAVORITE PART: "we all like to climb to the heights of love, dear, where our fantasy world can be found. but you must know in the end when its time to descend that there is no easy way down"

submissions
Norah Jones – Peace (Horace Silver cover) Lyrics 19 years ago

submissions
The Smashing Pumpkins – Today Lyrics 19 years ago
what's great about music is that it has a slightly different meaning for everyone. for me, "today" is about realizing that life's a bitch.. no matter what you do, you'll never get out of it alive. keeping that in mind, today might as well be the best day of your life, because life is very short. you try to forget all the terrible things that you've done and that have happened to you, but you just can't escape it; so move on, and be happy with where you end up.

FAVORITE PART: "i tried so hard to cleanse these regrets" AND [final chorus]

submissions
The Smashing Pumpkins – We Only Come Out at Night Lyrics 19 years ago
i think vampires is the obvious choice, but not exactly right. this song, to me, is about people who are misunderstood. since people aren't often around at night, its a place for them to come out. others pretend to understand them, and they pretend to understand themselves. personally, i always imagine this midnight car ride i went on with my cousin - we were just singing along with billy and airguitaring with d'arcy and james and drumming along with jimmy like we knew what we were doing. yay for the smashing pumpkins and for good memories!

FAVORITE PART: [depends on mood]

The Smashing Pumpkins – Tonight, Tonight Lyrics 19 years ago
to me, this song is about having one last night with the person you love, but can't work it out with. its so beautiful.. i love listening to it before i fall asleep and imagine my own music video for it. the great thing is, depending on what you're thinking and how your day went, its different every time. viva la smashing pumpkins [their music, anyway]

FAVORITE PART: "we'll crucify the insincere tonight; we'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight; we'll find a way to offer up the night tonight; the indescribable moments of your life tonight; the impossible is possible tonight.."

The Smashing Pumpkins – Thirty Three Lyrics 19 years ago
ethilien's explanation was good. to me, this song sorta signified the end of some beautiful, but difficult relationship. he started to collect his thoughts by walking around and "forgiving everyone" for just going about their way, insensitive to his pain [i think i feel that way a lot, which is why i interpreted it as such]. its a really great song, though.. let it be whatever you want it to be.

FAVORITE PART: [depends on mood]

The Smashing Pumpkins – Lily (My One and Only) Lyrics 19 years ago
you're right, slaphappy! this is a really funny, yet masterful, song. its about a guy who is so crazy about this girl he doesn't know, he climbs trees and looks through her window. i love listening to it on long car rides.. imagining a music video for it and such. good fun, good times.

FAVORITE PART: "cuz as they're dragging me away, i swear i saw her raise her hand and wave goodbye"

submissions
The Smashing Pumpkins – Beautiful Lyrics 19 years ago
such a great song about loving someone that you just can't be with. i think people see different meanings to this song, but i always imagined some sort of beautifully impossible relationship in which he's waiting hopelessly to have again.. *sigh* its really a great song

FAVORITE PART: "i'll be here just waiting for you; i'll be under your stars forever, neither here nor there just right beside you. i'll be under the stairs forever, neither here nor there just right beside you"

submissions
The Smashing Pumpkins – 1979 Lyrics 19 years ago
what's great about music is that it means different things to different people. to me, i see this song as a look into the past and the "good old days" when you used to hang out and do whatever the fook you wanted. its a really amazing song, i learned d'arcy's bassline to it and its really fun to play. viva la smashing pumpkins (well, their music, anyway)

FAVORITE PART: "..to the lights and towns below; faster than the speed of sound, faster than we thought we'd go beneath the sound of hope" [to play on bass] AND "justine never knew the rules; hung down with the freaks and ghouls. no apologies ever need be made, i know you better than you fake it.."

The Prodigy – Smack My Bitch Up Lyrics 19 years ago
hmmm.. i can see where everyone's coming from with these explanations, but i really hope it doesn't refer to abuse. the last thing everyone needs is a good song that promotes stuff like that. if they really meant to imply doing something intensely, i wish they could've used a different phrase..

The Ataris – In Spite Of The World Lyrics 19 years ago
this song seems to be about realizing that things between two people just aren't working out. even though he's very hurt by their situation, he understands that it has to end before they both get too deep. i think there's a warrant reference in there ["so i tore it up and wrote a letter to a friend" - 'letter to a friend' is a warrant song, i think] anyway, its another short song by the ataris that sums up much feeling.

FAVORITE PART: i woke up from this dream to find that i was sleeping, so i went back to sleep and i dreamed i was awake.."

The Ataris – Bite My Tongue Lyrics 19 years ago
what a great song! its so sweet.. i used it when i asked my [now, ex]boyfriend out. its really short, but this song describes everything i feel when i think of someone i really like.. yay ataris!

FAVORITE PART: "and i don't wanna work anymore ’cause sometimes i just can't ignore the way i feel when i see you smile. and someday i'll just shut my eyes and maybe then you'll realize... i'm just a fucking geek in love with you" AND "i know that you are just a girl but in my eyes you rule the world, i just thought i'd let you know you're my best friend and that’s okay, but i wanna see you night and day and wake up holding you right by my side! i've said my piece so now i'll run and hide."

submissions
Remy Zero – Perfect Memory Lyrics 19 years ago
just about remembering past times with a loved one that passed away ["and as they lowered you down, my heart just jaded.."] although it could be about two friends, the tone of the song seems to suggest they were in a relationship. a beautiful, sad song.

FAVORITE PART: "but then how this world slipped through my fingers, and even the sun seemed tired; i still cared. as they lowered you down, my heart just jaded; in that moment the earth made no sound. but you were there. you helped me lift my pain into the air.."

Jeff Buckley – Last Goodbye Lyrics 19 years ago
this song is absolutely beautiful. it sounds sort of pathetic [because it is] but i fall asleep to this song. it reminds me of how it used to be the someone i care about a lot, and he pushed me away. i felt - i feel - so devastated, and sometimes i feel like this song is exactly what went wrong with us.. i really wish it wasn't, and somehow i sort of know that things can change, but i can't help but think.. aw man, i don't know. i don't even know why i'm saying all this. but this song, its beautiful. its just beautiful..

FAVORITE PART: "did you say, 'no this can't happen to me?' did you rush to the phone to call? was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind saying, 'maybe you didn't know him at all, you didn't know him at all, oh, you didn't know..'"

submissions
Foo Fighters – Learn to Fly Lyrics 19 years ago
always made me think of getting a grasp on the way things are going for you.. conflict makes life interesting, so the line "looking for a complication" implies that he wants life to have some spice. so he wants to take control of his life, but at the same time make it worth living.

Avril Lavigne – Things I'll Never Say Lyrics 19 years ago
i think you misread me, heavenly. i am not "trashing" her because, like i said, i respect her as an artist. i don't claim to be an expert on punk music, but i'm just annoyed by all these pop singers trying to come across as punk.. i'm singling her out especially because she talks about her music as if its something different.. its absolutely not. if categories could be done away with, maybe this all wouldn't be a problem but i don't think anyone should pretend to be something they're not. avril lavigne is not punk, and neither is her music.

Travis – Why Does It Always Rain On Me? Lyrics 19 years ago
skater's right. i don't think the lyrics are posted correctly.. but nevertheless, this song is about feeling like everything is going terribly wrong, no matter what you do. its applied to everyone's lives at some point, right? a great song. i happen to love the rain, and i don't feel like it holds a negative connotation for me, but i still understand what fran's saying and i love the lyrics!

FAVORITE PART: "i can't stand myself, i'm being held up by invisible men. still life on a shelf, i've got my mind on something else.." AND "oh, where did the blue skies go? why is it raining so? its so cold.."

submissions
Travis – Driftwood Lyrics 19 years ago
violetzebras is exactly right. i always pictured this song to be about someone who fran felt was just wasting away, becoming "driftwood". i think he also had a little bit of fun with the song by adding nonsensical parts ["pillars turn to butter, butterflying low"]. a great song to take it easy to.

FAVORITE PART: [depends on mood]

submissions
Travis – Pipe Dreams Lyrics 19 years ago
i always thought this song was about falling in love with someone that you really felt you had something in common with.. and for some reason she writes a letter to him and breaks up with him ["i read it all, every word, and i still don't understand a thing"]. he thinks about losing love and how life is very much the same. it goes around in an endless circle of pain. thats just what i think..

FAVORITE PART: "what had you heard? was it love? was it take another walk in the dark? you'll never learn.."
