The beginning saw existence of a chosen dream
But then came pain
With energy striking on those she knew would uncover her lies
She felt she must destroy everything that we had prayed for
So she sent shameful claim in her lies
She wants us to be what's going on in her mind

Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.
Hold on to the love.
Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.
Nahhh nah nah nah

Hold on to the love
We are smiling.

She wants us to be what's going on in her mind.
If she is to take over she must prevent unity.
But oh how cold her life must be.
She knows she must destroy everything that we had prayed for.
So here comes shameful claim in her lies. (L)

Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.
Hold on to the love.
Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold onto the love.
Smiling again
Hold on to the love.

Nahhh nah nah nah
Hold on
Nahhh nah nah nah
Hold on
Nahhh nah nah nah
Nahhh nah nah nah
Hold on
Nahhh nah nah nah
Hold on
Hold on to the love.

The music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.
Hold on to the love.

Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.
Hold on to the love.

Hold on
Round and round and round and round and round,

Hold on to the love

Go round, go round but hold on to the love.
Hold on to the love.

Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.

Go round.
Go round.
Hold on to the love
So hard for me to try and tell you how I feel.

Ah, no no, no love.
Go round.
Gonna hold on.
Go round yeah.
But hold on to love.
The music takes you round.
It takes you round and round and round,
But hold on to love.
Hold on.
Hold on to love.
Hold on.

Sorrow
Hold on to love

    Sometimes these lyrics make me think of the Indian death goddess Kali - who else is the lady of destructive enrgies that he's singing of? Well, I don't really have a clue but his singing is just fab. And so is the production, the bongo drum machines and sequencers sound glorious

    And more simply, music in general ?

    I've gotta admit, this song confuses me too.

    Hmm. Meaning. Human struggle against all evil? It sounds like evil is being described in this woman and it is her attempt to take over and humans are resisting by "holding on to the love"

    This may sound strange, but all the talk of lies, disunity and pain seem to say this.

    Song Meaning:

    The beginning is when a person is born. "She" is the way of the world

    Music is a place where you can find peace and love in today's world.

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.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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."

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
