lets dance while we still can these days are numbered short we can watch moments pass or we can see them as our last and take them for all they're worth so lets dance while we can throw caution to the wind and roll on full force until drained so that burn remains through worst of times and not wait for another day or for the perfect day to up and rise we never know what new days take so why waste all the hours to grow with those we know and i'm asking why we waste time alone when we should know to roll on full force and take advantage of these days that shape our lives and not wait for another day just because we have not enough time to roll on full force till drained so that burn remains through worst of times and not wait another day or for the perfect day to up and rise off my ass out my front door and up to yours to sit down with a fucking cup of coffee and shoot the shit

    True 'dat, "schlieffen." This song really inspires me to take hold of the day and whatever situations I'm in. If you have the live at the hardback album by HWM, they have a touching story for this.

    Yo schlieffen, this is straight from the booklet.

    Moments Pass(for Kevin Scott) "It never occurred to me until the day we said so long; he was moving to Boston. I was staying put. I couldn't help to think of all the moments that had passed while we were at home on our ass a mile and a half apart. It sucks looking back at the times I spent foolishly alone, when my friend who I've been with through thick and thin was only a short walk away. We're still as close as ever on opposite sides of the country, but I miss that spirit everyday. Just like the moment he went North, leaving me only wishing a few more cups of coffee together. Next time.... This song is about taking advantage of the time we have with our friends or loved ones now. Mainly because we never know what tomorrow will unfold."

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."

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
