Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire Lyrics 13 years ago
Nathan: I think that the song is about... sex.

Caleb: Some people might think that the lyrics are corny... but if you've ever had really good sex, I don't think it's corny.

Nathan: I don't know where Caleb got the lyrics for that one, cos I'm pretty sure he's saving himself for marriage. So I would probably say it's more a song of fantasy, like how he imagines it will go. But he's on to something, cos it's only a minute and a half song and he apologizes at the end.

Haha love these boys.

Sam Roberts – Uprising Down Under Lyrics 15 years ago
You feel the weight of the world on your shoulder
As every day gets shorter and colder
And hand in hand we walk through a land of fire
The mountains bleed red as the sun gets higher

All the things that you want I'll provide
Till your footprint is swept away by the tide
I can wait for a while, I don't mind
I can wait for a while, 'cause I got time

I wish it was less of the way it is
I wish it were more of the way it could be
You can put your faith in me for a while
In the end I hope you're free 'cause I'll be out of style

All the things that you want I'll provide
Till your footprint is swept away by the tide
And I can wait for a while, I don't mind
I can wait for a while, I got time, I got time

Whoever said you can't be saved by a song?
Whoever said that was stringing you along
We're all afraid to be dead and gone
This will live on, it will live on, it will live on

And all the things that you want I'll provide
Till your footprint is swept away by the tide
And I can wait for a while, I don't mind
I can wait for a while, I got time

And all the things you're looking for, I hope you'll find
Before your footprint is swept away by the tide
I can wait for a while, I don't mind
I can wait for a while, 'cause I got time

Sarah Harmer – Salamandre Lyrics 15 years ago
Before someone asks what this is in English, roughly:
Salamander, you have to help me understand all the mysteries of the forest,
the secret map, the golden tree. I'm waiting for you patiently.
Salamander, the two of us together. My solitude and boredom disappeared overnight--I've led a lonely (slow) life for so long.
It's true, one day I'll be King. All of France awaits me. Every word I say will be made law. But for now, my only friend, please come quickly, I beg you.
Salamander, the night is approaching, I think. The moon will be our candle. Welcome to my new life--our adventures await us--my Salamander.

Low Millions – Nikki Don't Stop Lyrics 16 years ago
"A lusty, sensuous, modern audio portrait of a tawdry encounter with the infamous Nikki. Even Prince might have felt compelled to pen a sequel to his own classic ("Darling Nikki") had he met the Nikki featured in this erotically-charged song."

Low Millions – Money Thing Lyrics 16 years ago

Low Millions – Here She Comes Lyrics 16 years ago
"A celebration of that state of borderline, blissful adoration, in which you see the object of your desire in every aspect of life, however mundane. Strangers in bars, faces in ads plastered on passing buses, and the local TV weatherman all seem to resemble your lover. "

Low Millions – Low Millions Lyrics 16 years ago
"Roll call. The confession of a self-professed, card-carrying member of the Low Millions, a group which, at any given moment, encompasses billions of individuals. The only prerequisite for membership in this fluctuating club is feeling down, whether you've stubbed your toe, lost your job, or your wife just walked out for good. In this instance, the question is not, 'Who are the Low Millions,' but rather, 'Who among us is not one of the Low Millions.'"

Low Millions – Mockingbird Lyrics 16 years ago
"A postcard dispatched from a patient in the hospital of love. Diagnosis: Mild insanity, induced by the indecision and contradictions of one's beloved. Is that faint sound the sweet song of a nightingale, or the deceptive call of the lying mockingbird? The patient's condition grows increasingly unstable."

I saw him live a few days ago, and I remember before playing a song, he said it was about prom night, and I thought he was going to play Kathleen. But he ended up playing something else, I forget what it was, perhaps "Bright Eyes".

Limblifter – Vicious Lyrics 16 years ago
If you like Limblifter, check out Age Of Electric. Ryan Dahle was in that band as well, with Kurt (his brother that was in Limblifter before, and now is in the New Pornographers).
Age of Electric was the Dahle brothers and the Kerns brothers (Todd and John). Todd and John did another band after AOE broke up called Static In Stereo for a while, now Todd has a solo thing going, and John is in Robin Black and the Intergalactic Rockstars.
It's all very confusing if you aren't familiar with this to begin with, and seems kinda incestuous haha.

Brand New – Sic Transit Gloria...Glory Fades Lyrics 17 years ago
Alright, this is close to what a lot of you were saying, but as a girl who's done this (yeah I know, so shoot me, it was years ago), I'm gonna explain it my way.

The girl: wants a relationship from this guy, or at least a deeper one, and she feels that she can get that from him if they have sex.

The guy: feels guilty about it, isn't really ready. But feels like "I'm a guy, guys shouldn't pass up sex, suck it up, be a man, just do it" So he just goes with it, since his friends are all talking about it and such "Despite everything he learned from his friends..."

That wasn't a very thorough explanation, but yeah... you get the gist of it.

Rhett Miller – Come Around Lyrics 18 years ago
thursdayisthecure > if you're stil interested, the lyrics are on Rhett's website at rhettmiller.com

As for the song, I think it's about losing someone you loved, and not being able to imagine yourself with any other person ever, everything reminds you of them, and being convinced that unless you are with that one person, you're going to be lonely for the rest of your life.

I Mother Earth – Good For Sule Lyrics 19 years ago
It's about a guy (Sule) who lives in America and has to decide whether to stay there with his wife and child, or go back to Africa and inherit the throne of his tribe. It's apparently a true story. Chris wrote this after coming home drunk and watching the documentary on A&E or some channel like that.
