his next song is about a young lady called Laura
Who unfortunately isn't with us anymore
But she's still called Laura
Here we go

Feel the words from my lips
To your harsh finger tips
Then you know where I come from
Cause I know, yes I know
Everything there is to know
Cause I lost everything I had
You see I
I could have danced on the sun
But my world came undone

(Laura)
Laura

There's no need for tears
'Cause there's no need to cry
The love that you leave
Will never be left behind
This pain in my head comes straight from my heart
No woman alive could touch who you were
So bye, bye Laura
There's no one could take your place
Bye, bye Laura
Your beauty will never fade
The seed that you sewn
Now reach for the sky
The song that you leave
Will never beat at night
And after this song, her spirit lives on
Though your not around you'll never be gone

So bye, bye Laura
'Cause no one can take your place
Bye, bye Laura
Your beauty will never fade
But I I could have danced on the sun
But my world came undone
Laura
Yeah, I I could have danced on the sun
But my world came undone
So, bye bye Laura
Yeah, bye bye Laura

This pain in my head comes straight from my heart
No woman alive could touch who you were

So bye, bye Laura
There's no one could take your place
Your beauty will never fade
So bye, bye Laura
There's no one could take your place
Bye, bye Laura
Your beauty will never fade
Fade!

Yeah!

    As you can see, there is a lot of this song that is missing.. That's because I had couldn't find out what it was. I'm not sure if all of what I did figure out is entirly correct either. If you know, please tell me so I can update the lyrics.

    So excited they're doing a studio version of this song for their new DVD/CD, however, it won't be the same without the drunk yelling "laura..."

    Replace "See your hearts fingertip" by "To your hearts fingertip"

    awesome song, one of my favorites by FM, obviously about Dave who lost Laura

    Who was Laura? Was she the wife he refers to in Black Friday Rule ("well, I lost me a wife so I found me a plane/flew all the way to California")?

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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."

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
