someday the sun will fall down. and the waters will rise. and the walls will fall down. the hands that built them will at the cost of making love. we shine the times and hide the trough. we'll find a way to make it run. we'll light a flame that says we are. everyone you want doesn't want you back. at the cost of making love. we shine the times and hide the trough. we'll find a way to make it run. we'll light a flame that says we are

    so when you comment, why not say gasp what you think the song implies! this is songmeanings...no? any way star9 finally broke the cycle and at least asked what it means. whoopee. i think here, chris is talking about all these remarkable events taking place:sun, waters, walls, etc; being metaphors for falling in love and finding balance in a relationship, true mutual love. as people grow older, they appreciate the value of this kind of relationship and find they're not easy to come by, happening rarely, if at all, like the sun falling down.if this type of love does in fact exist which he's waiting for, it's the signal he's been looking for all along. "everyone you want doesn't want you back at the cost of making love." he's making references to past lusts and strong feelings he's had for people in the past. these feelings, proved to be too intense as the other's feelings for him were not of the same intensity. people desire others extremely too quickly sometimes and without even knowing whom they're infatuated with, want to make love to them. well at this cost, whether you made love to the person you'd loved anyway or not, this premature lust is no grounds for a relationship with hopes of survival. at the end he's expressing he still believes his true love is out there somewhere, and when he finds her, together they'll "find a way to make it run." someday...

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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."

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
