Well it was only a game she was mine for the asking
And I'd figured the whole thing out
When she told me her name it was more than a feeling
There wasn't any doubt

Well it felt so good it was hard to break it
Too much for me to explain
But in a matter of time I'm gonna be myself again

You've been
Winding me up too long
I'm over my head is it day or night
Cause woman you ain't so strong
But you caught me by suprise
Burned me with your eyes
Cut me down to size

Well it was only a game she was only a number
But I figured it out all wrong
Every time that I said I'll move on tomorrow
I hung around too long
Well it felt so good it was too hard to break it
Too much before me to face
Now I got nowhere to run she knows my every hidin' place

You've been
Winding me up too long
I'm over my head is it day or night
Cause woman you ain't so strong
But you caught me by suprise
Burned me with your eyes
Cut me down to size
Saw through my disguise

Winding me up too long
I'm over my head is it day or night
Cause woman you ain't so strong
But you caught me by suprise
Burned me with your eyes
Cut me down to size
Beat me to the prize
Hurt me with your lies
Burned me with your eyes
Cut me down to size

    Beautiful song. Reminds me of ELO, actually. Not Alan Parson's deepest song, but it is certainly very catchy.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
