Dance record from before I was born on the stereo,
Playing last rights for my late nights;
All of my evenings and all of my everydays.
No business in the same place;

Coffee, scrambled eggs.
Starting our separate ways,
Now are separate days.
By the time you read this,

This house will have changed hands one more time again.
Wherever you are,
Dialing up friends on someone else's telephone.
In someone else's home.

Why did ever we part and give back our hands?
Nothing but wear between all of my everything's.

    maybe the best breakup song ever. it's amazing how well it conveys the sadness of knowing that someone you were so close with has their own seperate life now and vice versa.

    This song is one of my favorites by the Promise Ring. It somehow makes me happy and sad at the same time.

    Wow. I completely forgot how great this song is. For a guy who just graduated college and lived here and there with so many great people that must inevitably fall away, it is almost too much.

    My life imitates your song

    I was listening to this album (Very Emergency) today, and i finally put it together for the first time in all the years i've owned and listened to it. The whole album is incredibly upbeat and happy, describing a really great relationship (most notably on Living Around and Happiness is All the Rage) and a general sense of adventure and fun (The Deep South or Jersey Shore) until you get to this song, and the entire mood of the album is dismantled. Suddenly the relationship ends, and the wide eyed view of the world Very Emergency introduced is torn away for a more melancholic atmosphere, in the same way we all start to see things differently when we get out of an important relationship. It's an amazing sense of narrative that most albums never bother with; it's usually all positive or all negative, and it's really rare for an album to change it's direction at all, but especially so late on the disc. Such a captivating story device The Promise Ring employed here, and i didn't even notice the first hundred times i heard it.

Ministry
Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
