I don't care what you do
I'm getting out
No, nothing ever shames me
Don't want a thing from you
I'm going out
I don't care if you're angry

I, I, I'm getting out
No, nothing ever shames me
I, I, I'm going out
I don't care if you're angry

I should've thought things through
I'm holding out
But not getting an answer
I want to do right by you
I'm finding out
Cheating gets it faster

I, I, I'm holding out
Not getting an answer
I, I, I'm finding out that
Cheating gets it faster
I, I, I'm holding out
But not getting an answer
I, I, I'm finding out
Cheating gets it faster

I don't care what you do
I'm getting out
No nothing ever shames me
Don't want to thing from you
I'm going out
I don't care if you're angry

I should've thought things through
Yeah, I'm holding out
Not getting an answer
I want to do right by you
I'm finding out that
Cheating gets it faster

I, I, I'm getting out
No nothing ever shames me
I, I, I'm going out
I don't care if you're angry
I, I, I'm holding out
Not getting an answer
I, I, I'm finding out
Cheating gets it faster

    this guys girlifriend cheats on him and generally cheats him like shit, so he's decided that he's had enough and that he's going out to enjoy himself and do whatever he wants without her. basically, he's showing her than he can cheat on her too. kickass song.

    This song is about a guy whose girl is being lame and slow and he wants some action, but she won't listen to him. So he takes matters into his own hands and goes to find a girl who will give him what he wants.

    I agree with 'imthecootie', Jims voice is really creepy, but it makes the song just awesome, definitely one of my favourites.

    At first I thought its about how his girlfriend cheats so he cheats aswell, but now Im pretty sure its about how 'iman2000' says, the girl is being a crap girlfriend so he doesnt care anymore and finds out that cheating makes his gf sit up and take notice.

    The "I.." part almost kinda sounds like hahaha, very evil and cynical. I love this song. When I first heard it i thought it was about him being in love with some1 and he wanted to do something for them, then i read the lyrics, yeah, i was wrong

    yes, i guess i have to admitt that it would be a decent break up song....but i don't think that was the purpse at all.....i think that hes writing it about himself....like his inner self. he finaly relizes that his life isn't what he wants it to be, and he thinks the only way out is through suicide.....

    Good point SuGaR, now that I've listened to it 1000 times, he does sound evil and cynical when he says that. Great song

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”

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.

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.
