If it stayed I'd never leave it if that turned around
I'd grieve the special dirty things that we used to talk about
I mean that loving you is strange and adored by me throughout,
oh no it's you again
Someday soon you'll find that someone waiting for the chance to beat you
Drooling on the set to feel you, blessing you with every kiss

Tying yourself to me stitch up my emptiness
'Cause you're the death of me so precious, loving the thrill
Tying yourself to me stitch up my emptiness
'Cause you're the death of me so precious, loving the thrill

It's Such the patient one who needs me, the spoiled one who wins
So shocking where's yours sense don't you know I hate you ooh,
unsatisfied you little girl

Tying yourself to me stitch up my emptiness
'Cause you're the death of me so precious, loving the thrill
Tying yourself to me stitch up my emptiness
'Cause you're the death of me so precious, loving the thrill

Rolling dice and seeming queer, bastard love a sick affair
Let's see what new disease you'll fetch
I mean that fucking you is stange and adored by me throughout
Oh no it's you again blessing you with every kiss

So precious you know this hate of mine exploded
I'm so deranged you know I will never be decieved

Tying yourself to me stitch up my emptiness
'Cause you're the death of me so precious, loving the thrill
Tying yourself to me stitch up my emptiness
'Cause you're the death of me so precious, loving the thrill

So precious loving the thrill

So precious loving the thrill

'Cause Your the death of me

So precious loving the thrill

    I don't know why these people get the idea it's about homosexuality. he DOES say "little girl". It seems to be about a man who was in love with a woman who is very immature. Even though she was immature and played mind games he continued loved her.

       "If it stayed I'd never leave it."

    If she would not have been the one to break it off he would have never left her.

     "Oh no, it's you again."

    She returns in his life.

    In the chourus he is asking her to fill the emptiness with even though the reletionship would destroy him. "your the death of me."

    straight men are obsessed with gay sex... that's why most of them say fag every 15 seconds and call everyone else gay.

    damn you guys are hopeless. The song is about how Jay one day fell off his bike and needed some Stitches for his wounds.

    eh... I like the immaturity theory better

    I always took it that way

    This girl just doesn't seem to know what she wants and just loves to tease even though she doesn't mean to

    she's a little girl who just hasn't developed a bunch of "diseases" as he calls it that whole "rolling dice and seeming queer" part i took it as her doing all these things because she's just in the game of not taking things seriously

    and he see's this in her and he really cares about her but she does get on his nerves at times

    he's patient and always there for her even if she gets on his nerves "oh no its you again"

    i dunno how else to explain it

    thats just how i feel about it :3

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
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."
