Yo toda via espero un milagro,
Yo toda via te espero a ti.
The sunlight is fading,
the longest shadows have been cast.
Like songs from a siren,

hurricanes from the past.
And I am a failure,
defeated every time,
so let me lie here,
a sidewalk for a shrine.

I am so lonely,
they say you were lonely too.
Dear God be my savior,
I wait for you.

My broken spirit,
is trembling slow.
Park bench for a throne now,
my blanket is the snow.
And I'm being haunted,
by long forgotten dreams,
for hurricanes have,
the bluest eyes I've ever seen.

I am pining for your mercy,
for this storm to break,
Lord you are my comfort,
the hope for which I wait.

    I love this song. Not only does i make me want to dance, but I think its about how Reese's fiancee broke off the engagement. He loved her, and now he was so lonely "And I'm being haunted, by long forgotten dreams, for hurricanes have, the bluest eyes I've ever seen.. " He seems so lonely and numb but turns to Christ, because "they say, You were lonely too." and that God can comfort him because, well, Christ went through it too. It's such a beautiful song to me, so well done, and it hit me hard because I loved this guy, and it could never be. *I change the "bluest eyes" to "darkest eyes" and yeah, it hit hard when I first heard it.* I wish I could dance to dance to this song.

    I assume the first line is Spanish. Google translates as "I hope all via a miracle, I hope you all through you." Can anybody do better than that?

    i asked both a spanish teacher and my grandparents and they said the first lines in spanish mean, "I always expect a miracle, I always wait for you."

    It says "I'm still waiting for a miracle. I'm still waiting for a miracle" And it is definitely about his fiancee

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.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Me and Johnny
Matt Paxton
Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."
