All that she said was true
All that she said was true
Give her some time
Give her some space
All that she said was true

All that she meant was good
All that she meant was good
Give her some time
Give her some space
All that she meant was good

How you reacted was right
How you reacted was right
Give her some time
Give her some space
How you reacted was right

    Flirting is "ambiguous and slippery," according Björk.

    definitely.

    i love how without the title the lyrics wouldn't mean as much.

    Memory

    In one of the live versions she sings, "You're all I ever wanted." at the beginning and end of the song.

    It makes me cry and the strings speak to me.

    I'll never have you back.

    ahh much as this is a beautifully sad song about someone cheating on someone hence the title i've seen another meaning in the lyrics. Well lets start with the first line "All that she said was true" maybe not been a truth but saying true as in yes i agree thats what happened. then "All that she meant was good" she tried to do something and it didn't turn out how she wanted? Maybe there for a friend and someone mistaking that as something more? Or even did do something wrong but seem so right at the time..."Give her some time Give her some space" refelctions on boths sides i would think on the situation here..."How you reacted was right" Yes i ammit i was wrong whoever did it...reaction may be one of anger depending on extent of problem...whats really sad is the title word "again" as if this happens many times over. Hence the repeated lyrics many times! I guess we all know when your in love you forgive what ever that person has done as they are forever perfect in your eyes. I maybe be very wrong who knows...

    Peace and Love Sobyn

    Do you think the "You" in the title is referring to the speaker of the poem or to the person that the speaker is addressing?

    to me it seems about flirting with someone that has been through a traumatic experience, and you have to let her take some distance from time to time when you get too close. however hard that is. she means well but she's just too broken to let you come close too fast.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

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.

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.
