Is it so hard
To satisfy your senses?
You found out to love me
You have to climb some fences
Scratching and crawling
Along the floor to touch you
And just when it feels right
You say you found someone to hold you
Does she like I do?

Baby, tell me does she love you
Like the way I love you?
Does she stimulate you?
Attract and captivate you?
Tell me, does she miss you?
Existing just to kiss you?
Like the way I do?

Tell me, does she want you?
Infatuate and haunt you?
Does she know just how to shock you?
Electrify and rock you?
Does she inject you?
Seduce you and affect you?
Like the way I do?
Like the way I do?

Can I survive
All the implications?
Even if I tried
Could you be less than an addiction?
Don't you think I know
There's so many others
Who would beg steal and lie
Fight kill and die
Just to hold you hold you
Hold you like I do?

Ooh, baby, tell me does she love you
Like the way I love you?
Does she stimulate you?
Attract and captivate you?
Tell me, does she miss you?
Existing just to kiss you?
Like the way I do?

Tell me, does she want you?
Infatuate and haunt you?
Does she know just how to shock you?
Electrify and rock you?
Does she inject you?
Seduce you and affect you?
Like the way I do?
Oh, nobody loves you
Like the way I do
Nobody wants you
Like the way I do
Nobody needs you
Like the way I do
Nobody aches
Nobody aches just to hold you
Like the way I do
No, no, no

Tell me does she love you
Like the way I love you?
Does she stimulate you?
Attract and captivate you?
Baby, baby, tell me, does she miss you?
Existing just to kiss you?
Like the way I do?

No, tell me, does she want you?
Infatuate and haunt you?
Does she know just how to shock you?
Electrify and rock you?
Does she inject you?
Seduce you and affect you, baby?
Like the way I do?
No, like the way I do?
Oh-ho, yeah

    I love this song and can identify ! I have read somewhere that melissa wrote this song about a woman she was in a "non monagamous" relationship with,and she wasn't too happy about it,and this woman told her that she had a crush on someone else,and she's like asking her "what can she give you that i can't".Just a passionate song!

    My Interpretation

    I think that she is saying in the verses that the person that she is with wants a non-monogamous relationship and has a desire/crush on or for someone else and is basically asking her what this other person can give her what she herself can't and also accusing her of not putting enough effort into making the relationship work "you found out to love me you have to climb some fences"

    Does this song even need an explanation??? I'm not usually a big fan of Melissa's music, though I love her voice. But I heard this song at a club last night and just HAD to have it! The lyrics are amazing, and the entire song just reaches out and touches you...right..there. Her wife must be a very, very lucky woman!

    I've been in love with her voice since I was little. I grew up with her music, and a part of me will always be in love with her. And every song she writes, every word makes me ache. She's sincere, and I admire that. She feels what she feels, and she's not afraid to fucking scream it.

    what i love about this song is when melissa was writing I Want You she put the tape in the wrong way in her recorder and it played the guitar riff backwards. that's where she got the guitar riff from this song. So pretty much it's the song I Want You played backwards

Step
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.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
