I'm gonna get free
I'm gonna get free
I'm gonna get free
Ride into the sun

She never loved me
She never loved me
She never loved me
Why should anyone?

Come here, come here, come here
I'll take your photo for you
Come here, come here, come here
Drive you around the corner
Come here, come here, come here
You know you really oughta
Come here, come here, come here
Move outta California

Get (get)
Me (me)
Far (far)
When I've a lot to lose

Save (save)
Me (me)
From (from)
Here (here)

Come here, come here, come here
Come here, come here, come here
Come here, come here, come here
Come here, come here, come here

When it's breeding time
Look into your mind away

I'm gonna get free
I'm gonna get free
I'm gonna get free
Ride into the sun

She never loved me
She never loved me
She never loved me
Why should anyone?

Come here, come here, come here
I'll take your photo for you
Come here, come here, come here
Drive you around the corner
Come here, come here, come here
You know you really oughta
Come here, come here, come here
Move outta California

    This song means a lot to me, especially the lines:

    "She never loved me Why should anyone?"

    but everyone comparing bands should look at the name of this website, SongMeanings.net. This is NOT BandComparison.net or whatever, you're all just n00bs and i don't give a damn about wrong lyrics, i know the song, i have it and it kicks ass to me. So shut up. Nuff Said.

    this song reminds me of sped-up nirvana...

    it definitely makes more sense with those lyric corrections

    i hate it when people compare one band to another, i think that everyone has their own sound, i am having trouble comparing the vines to nirvana, it just doesnt work for me, and when people say that some bands songs sound all the same, i dont get each song is different, different lyrics, different pace, therefore not the same, i like this song because its short and to the point, no pondering what the hell it means, the vines are the vines the stokes are the strokes and in my eyes they are totally different but also both are awesoem bands, i think the biggest thing they have in common is that they both got "big" around the same time, but they are still great bands !!!

    I think that's part of the fun in listening to other bands.. You compare sounds.. and i think that by doing so, you may find something unique about each band.... enabling you to appreciate them more so.

    Get Free is a song about a relationship based on interest. End of the line.

    Anyway, the song appears to be about the dude referring to a woman, now he's in a break down mode. However, I think he knew the shit wasn't going to last and the bitch was a fake from the start. But he still loves her, he just can't stand to see her.

    My guess, but I could be miles off, no one else has tried.

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.
