Crowded House – Don't Dream It's Over Lyrics 12 years ago
I always thought he was saying "Do you dream in color?" instead of "Don't dream it's over"

Rilo Kiley – Capturing Moods Lyrics 12 years ago
I thought that this song was sung um... tongue in cheek. Because if she genuinely likes this person... why wouldn't she mind racing through their goodbyes? And who wants to WASTE the best years of their life? Not many people offering that up. Winter is usually a time of death as well... so I saw this song as her being upset and saying "oh sure, go ahead and waste my life, I don't mind." ... when of course, she does. The person that this song is about is an asshole and wants to "keep her down" but when the relationship ends, she'll race through their goodbyes (he's been racing through their lives trying to find some sort of meaning) and I highly doubt she'll look back.

Rilo Kiley – Hail to Whatever You Found in the Sunlight That Surrounds You Lyrics 12 years ago
I caught a religious element as well. I saw the sunlight as those old paintings of saints, with the halo looking like the sun shining behind their heads. I see sarcasm... she is telling, well, Jesus/Christians that whatever they found in sunlight (God) is just dandy, go ahead, pray for those who have left Christianity, but they still think that everything good is for them ("pretend all the good things are for you") and maybe even for her (I'm assuming that here she means someone specific who desperately wants to think that she takes part in that sunshine), but the weather (sunshine) changes not even halfway between their house (church) and hers.

The Faint – Phone Call Lyrics 12 years ago
"Maybe I could open you up" -- definitely means sex. Later he changes it to "maybe you could open up to me" which is the emotional/mental part of a relationship. She is scared to open up to him (perhaps she knows that the first part of his attraction to her is physical and not emotional, so she tells him that she wants to be alone). He was scared as well, which is why it was easier to hide the truth. And now he's realizing that he won't be able to get her at all, physically or emotionally.

But the main thing I wanted to comment is that while I don't know much about music, whatever it is, guitar I guess, sounds like moaning, which also adds to the fact that he wants to be "sharing the same bed."

This song, then, is about the gulf separating two people when they only connect physically ("we do all the things that lovers do").

Brand New – Limousine Lyrics 12 years ago
Right now I'm leaning towards the killer saying the last part -- He knows that "Seven (God) loved you so much."

But he's asking Katie not to reply because he can't handle the pain (which he can dish out, but cannot take). Katie's reply, possibly, could be his sentencing (her reply being in the form of a verdict). This would also lend to this part being repeated 12 times to mean the jury. Her reply could also (less supported by the lyrics) be in the form of nightmares or even at his own death, seeing her again and her telling him what a horrible thing he did.

I really do like the explanation about him idolizing her into his own bride. A little creepy, as she was only seven, but very plausible.

Rilo Kiley – I Never Lyrics 13 years ago
She's singing to a man she's never met. The Ideal Man with whom every woman is in love. She hopes that he exists somewhere, and that one day they will meet and then she won't have to die alone. Until then, she'll fantasize about living a perfect life, where he will treat her well, even though she might not deserve it. She dreams of living a fairy tale. And she will love him in a way that she's never loved another man.

Bright Eyes – Make War Lyrics 13 years ago
I thought the bulletproof glass, drawer, and change would add up to a bank.. but maybe because I work at one. Haha. Except.. our glass is only bullet resistent.. yay.. I'm gonna get shot...

"It's too hard to belong to someone who is gone." You can try and force it, but she's not who she was.. you can't force something that no longer exists. It hurts too much to hold onto the ghost of What Was... seeing as how ghosts are slippery little devils..

Death Cab for Cutie – Someday You Will Be Loved Lyrics 14 years ago
I didn't even think about "Tiny Vessels" -- but now that I look at it, it makes perfect sense! The summer, he felt no regret in either song, he surely didn't love her.
Good stuff. =)

Aaron Sprinkle – Really Something Lyrics 14 years ago
This song (like all his songs) is amazing. It's about how you can get caught up in the mundane tasks you have to do each day, but "one smile" and you remember that life is "really something." Life is more than what you do.

Lifehouse – Everything Lyrics 15 years ago
I feel sorry for the people who think this song is about his girlfriend. If that were so, he's got a lot coming to him when she disappoints him. And so the people who think this song is about another person, they're going to be disappointed when they don't find true fulfillment (that this song is about) in their relationships with people.
What he means by asking God to take him in and to take him deeper, is that God doesn't need us. God doesn't have to care about us, He doesn't have to love us. But the truth is, God does. He even wants us to be happy. If you don't believe in God, imagine what it is to worship, to be consumed by someone. When you devote your life to this person (say a girlfriend or boyfriend, or perhaps a spouse or just a lover, since this song is supposedly about that type of relationship), you want to be around him or her all the time. You want to know that person intimately. Well, that's what this line means -- he wants to know God more, he wants God to 'let him in' so to speak. He doesn't want the walls that people put up to guard themselves. He wants God, as He is, pure and unadultered. This can only be obtained through God's will and through a deep and intimate relationship. He will no longer settle for a dead version of the living God. This is the way to be happy.
This is the way that things are the best -- "how could it be any better than this?"

The Get Up Kids – Regret Lyrics 16 years ago
they have every right to cover songs. and when a band covers a song, they're supposed to do it in their own style, instead of making it sound exactly like the original. i think this is a pretty good cover of the song.

this song is amazing..but i don't think it's just about when he's down. because then he wouldn't hate EVERY beautiful day -- just some of them. it's about how he hates every beautiful day. it's really not a pleasant feeling, no one understands why i like the clouds so much..

Dashboard Confessional – Standard Lines Lyrics 17 years ago
drinking doesn't make you a bad person. nothing you do can make you a bad person.....because there are many people who haven't done anything but are still 'bad' people and then there are people who HAVE done things but -aren't- bad people. i'm not here to judge you.

as for Christians who drink...."wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray be them is not wise" proverbs 20:1. "woe to those who rise early in the morning to run after their drinks, who stay up late at night till they are inflamed with wine...they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord, no respect for the work of his hands" isaiah 5:11-12. lastly, Ephesians 5:18 "do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. instead, be filled with the Spirit."

so i think that's ample room to say that getting drunk is bad. as Christians, we need to live as examples. if non believers see us drinking and living just as they do, why would they want to become a Christian? after all, what's the difference........

The Get Up Kids – The Worst Idea Lyrics 17 years ago

Dashboard Confessional – Standard Lines Lyrics 17 years ago
because Christians shouldn't really drink. at least... to the point where they would refer to it as their new diet.

submissions
Dashboard Confessional – Standard Lines Lyrics 17 years ago
the liquid diet prolly IS alcohol (dulling to the senses and crude), but it's possible that it's not -- when you're sick or you don't feel well, you don't really eat solid food. and don't you feel dull when you don't eat food? and liquids are kinda crude.. i mean, if you're living off water or juice or chicken soup, it's not exactly refined.
"but it will do" -- that makes me kinda think it's not alcohol, because you can't live off of it..and he's a Christian, so..yeah. i dunno.. being drunk all the time doesn't do.

so what's another day when i can't bear these nights of thoughts of going on without you?

exactly how i was when my ex and i broke up. and then the music changed to standard lines... and now i'm (finally) over him. he was such a liar...but i'm not going into that. oh but a word to the wise? (i don't get that...a word to the wise? shouldn't it be...a word to those who might not know?)... don't ever EVER be with anyone who's bipolar and doesn't take medication for it. seriously.

Dashboard Confessional – This Ruined Puzzle Lyrics 17 years ago
i think it's how...she never knew. he hoped she would guess about his feelings..but she didn't, maybe because she wasn't sure, maybe because she was preoccupied, i don't know. or perhaps they had feelings for each other but neither would act on them... something happened, they had to part ways, but if she ever chooses, she can find his note and answer the question.

Dashboard Confessional – The Best Deceptions Lyrics 17 years ago
SOMEone's a bit ANAL.

it's hard to say that ANY band is emo because every band denies it. why? i don't know except that emo used to mean emotional hardcore but now it's just...emotional. i really don't think emo should be considered a genre or anything.. but then, i don't consider punk or alternative genres either -- they're just part of rock. i dunno. i'm tired and should be sleeping...so i'm stopping now.

oh.. this song is amazing. girls are worse players than guys.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – I Could Have Lied Lyrics 17 years ago

isn't it funny how everyone is so different...yet everyone can relate to this, one song?
my story is a bit different.. because my ex and i don't talk, nor do we want to... we don't want anything to do with each other...but.. i think, if one day, we just.. met on the street, we'd use those lies.. if we saw each other on a regular basis, we'd use those lines..
to me, this song isn't about how they're just friends.. it's about how they're both pretending they're not bitter, they're pretending that they care about each other, as people.
but he misses something.
