When I feel the morning grass I let down my guard
Because love comes from the dirt in my own backyard

Everytime I think I've finished being young
I catch myself having fun
But the moment passes as the sun moves on
So I turn myself back to you

On a diamond in the rough I spent my better years
I still see her in the crowd with diamonds in her ears
And it's depressing that I can't forget the tune the organist played
la da da da da da da, la da da da da da da...

Everytime I think I've finished being young
I catch myself having fun
But the moment passes as the son moves on
So I turn myself back to you

Is our season over?
No four leaf clover
I feel it's getting colder
Now that it's late fall

But can you still remember?
April to November
You and I were members
Of the best team in baseball

So we play our games
I've got a girlfriend
You've found a new guy
But it's not the same

And so I drive
Straight up i-5
To let you know I'm still alive

    I just downloaded this song, and i realized i'd heard it before, but under the name of "weezer - starlight" is this a coincidence or something??? i know they're touring together, but do they share songs???

    no, everyone thinks that ozma songs are weezer songs. i just had an argument with a friend of mines roommate because he insisted that 'baseball' was a weezer song. yes they did tour together, but they have their own music...

    Basically i think the lyrics on this song are about how he remembers an old flame of his. But somehow theres those people that you can never quite 'get over' and he is finally realizing that he still loves her and hes not over her yet. So hes yearning inside to see her again and be with her again.

    This is such a sing a long song. Me and my friends were in town one night and at around 11 we all just started singing it. So hard to resist singing along.

    it seems like he kinda wishes he could go back to his "summer" (childish) days when love was so simple (talking about love being the dirt in his backyard). but time moves on and simple things become so complicated, like the girl he played with when he was little. haha this sounds really dumb but it reminds me of forest gump, how as forest and jenny grow up sometimes jenny forgets he exits and forest is always trying to remind her.

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."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.
