There's things that you guess
And things that you know
There's boys that you can trust
And girls that you don't
There's little things you hide
And little things that you show
Sometimes you think you're gonna get it
But you don't and that's just the way it goes

I swear I won't tease you
Won't tell you no lies
I don't need no bible
Just look in my eyes
I've waited so long baby
Now that we're friends
Every man's got his patience
And here's where my ends

I want your sex
I want you
I want

It's playing on my mind
It's dancing on my soul
It's taken so much time
So why don't you just let me go
I'd really like to try
Oh, I'd really love to know
When you tell me you're gonna regret it
Then I tell you that I love you but you still say NO!

I swear I won't tease you
Won't tell you no lies
I don't need no bible
Just look in my eyes
I've waited so long baby
Out in the cold
I can't take much more girl
I'm losing control

I want your sex
I want your love
I want

It's natural
It's chemical (let's do it)
It's logical
Habitual (can we do it?)
It's sensual
But most of all.....
Sex is something that we should do
Sex is something for me and you

Sex is natural - sex is good
Not everybody does it
But everybody should
Sex is natural - sex is fun
Sex is best when it' on one
one on one

I'm not your father
I'm not your brother
Talk to your sister
I am a love

C-c-c-c-come on

What's your defintion of dirty baby
What do you consider pornography
Don't you know I love it till it hurts me baby
Don't you think it's time you had sex with me

What's your defintion of dirty baby
What do you call pornography
Don't you know I love it till it hurts me baby
Don't you think it's time you had sex with me

Sex with me
Sex with me
Have sex with me

C-c-c-c-come on.


Oh so much love
That you've never seen
Let's make love
Put your trust in me

Don't you listen to what they told you
Because I love you
Let me hold you

I'm not your brother
I'm not your father
Oh will you ever change your mind
I'm a gentle lover with a heart of gold
But baby you've been so unkind...oh

Come on
I want your sex
Come on, I want your sex
That's right, all night
Oh, I want your sex
I want

Sexy baby's
(Sexy baby's)
Sexy body
(Sexy body)
Keeps me guessing
With a promise
I know we can come together
But the question is
Will we ever?

Together - you and me

    This is my own personal interpretation, but I think that George Michael is singing about his desire to have sexual intrercourse with the person that he's singing the song to. That's what the lyrics seem to say to me.

    I lost my virginity while George Michael was playing on the CD, so this song will always have a special nostalgic and kind of ironic meaning to me.

    Eh, I'm not so sure about this one, bilnit. Your interpretation seems too shallow for someone like George Michael. I'm sure there's some sort of underlying philosophical or political meaning to this one.

    Carabiner86, Lol. Political yes, maybe. I believe George is a very horny man. :-) And this song sensationalize his need for sex. If you are endulging into the drug "X" The only thing you want to do is have sex many?

    I don't know if it is ironic Tyler, instead it's rather fitting for that occasion and memory, although I don't think it's terribly romantic, but hey. The English folks think we completely misuse and abuse the words "ironic" and "ironically." I read some interesting comments about Alanis Morissette's song "Ironic" about the use and abuse of such words, but that song actually does have a good deal of irony in it, but anyways wrong song and I digress...

    Marvin Gaye, for instance, would be a more romantic way to lose one's virginity. Something like "Let's Get It On" or "Sexual Healing," but to each her own I guess. This song? Yeah, I think that George Michael has an insatiable sexual appetite. Remember the men's restroom incident...

    I've actually heard that this song is not about him really wanting to have sex with someone. It's about something deeper, something he's endorsing or a statement he's trying to make. However, the person who told me this much forget exactly what it was, so if anyone knows anything about this, that would be much appreciated. As for the person he's singing it to, I think it could be either a guy or a girl. Even if he wasn't "experimenting with homosexuality" at this time, that does not mean that he wasn't a homosexual and did not write songs hinting at his sexuality or addressing members of his gender that he was attracted to.

    To those who think this is about gay sex, read the fucking lyrics (pun intended)!

    "There's boys that you can trust And girls that you don't"

    That seems to be about a heterosexual relationships.

    "I've waited so long baby Out in the cold I can't take much more girl I'm losing control"

    He says "girl"!

    "I'm not your father I'm not your brother Talk to your sister I am a lover"

    Why would he tell a gay bloke to talk to his sister?

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."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.
Album art
Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”
