Van Morrison – Astral Weeks Lyrics 7 years ago
The chord structure of the song is quite repetitive (and I believe that enforces his lyrics even more), but the complexivity of the words is what makes the song so beautifully poetic and eternal. My interpretation of the Astral Weeks is pretty simple to grasp though.. Van is writing about his love.. and how if he got into the very depths of her thoughts, where all the peculiarities of life that could alter her genuine train of thought were gone.. at the core of her true soul.. would she still do it all the same? Would she come find him? Would she even want to? Would she kiss his eyes and love him for the man he is? Or would life be different? Would she lay him down in silence, in a soothing calm, to be reborn to come back into her life over and over for internity.. as to question does she love him so much that she would put him on replay? Like an old record she loves too much to throw away. This song to me, is about him questioning life, love, and how differences can often alter life's path.. and in turn, ponder the unknown.

Loch Lomond – Wax and Wire Lyrics 7 years ago
I was discussing that this evening actually after playing the song on my guitar to my wife earlier today. I do think the light could be the warmth of the afterlife reaching out to the deceased. Or the hand of God of whatever you believe him/her to be reaching out for you.. Nonetheless. The song is about positivity, and not at all a grim and gloom story.. to me, it's about moving to the next chapter of life. Whether it's while we're on earth or beyond.. definitely spiritual. I absolutely love the song.

(I realize I'm late on all these comments for this song, but I just joined this site today. a little background to my interpretation.. my wife and I had a miscarraige about two months before I first heard this song.) I found the musical composition to shift from a somewhat muted somber to an incredibly uplifting hope.. and the words I found to be more instrumental than anything. I see after reading the lyrics more thoroughly I fully understand this song is about death (which may have been why I was originally drawn to it), and Ritchie may be very well singing about putting a loved one under the Earth - but in my opinion, he's not necessarily mourning the death of the subject of the song, but more so of the the "person" he misses. As I said my wife miscarried around 11 weeks just before we were to see the sex, and it was hell. Honestly, it still is. We've gotten a lot better and we are trying again, but over the last several months she had been very aloof and it got to a point like nothing was wrong.. makeup. hair back. pulled tight.. while I knew on the inside she was falling apart. - I guess to summarize, my perspective of the song is this: I'm a guy, and while I was excited and happy to be a dad, when we lost the child, I moved on more quickly than she did. Maybe because I can't relate to being a mom because I'm a man, or maybe because I forced myself to compartmentalize. Either way I knew I had the upper hand emotionally, and owed her every bit of confidence I could reinstill her with. I realized that my strength had to bring her back from a place of darkness where she kept herself cold, closed, shutoff. And not that she was gone, but that she just needed to take my hand, and I'd take her hand, and I would pull her out... into the sun again.
