You find yourself in circumstances
That you can't control
You follow me around everywhere
Everywhere I go

It's the way you want it
(It's the way you want it)
And it's the way I've worked it out
It's the way you want it
(It's the way you want it)
And I'll always let you down

All the things you'll never be
The further down you walk with me
And once I had the things you'd want
Now I have something you need

I want to give you more
(I want to give you more)
I want you addicted to me
I want to give you more
(I want to give you more)
I want you addicted to me

I don't mind pretending I'm someone else
Whoever you want me to be
As long as I'm inside you
You'll never want me to leave

It's the way you want it
(It's the way you want it)
You'll never be alone
It's the way you wanted to trust in me
(It's the way you want it)
And now I have control

All the things you'll never be
The further down you walk with me
And once I had the things you'd want
Now I have something you need

I want to give you more
(I want to give you more)
I want you addicted to me
I want to give you more
(I want to give you more)
I want you addicted to me

I want to give you more
(I want to give you more)
I want you addicted to me
I want to give you more
(I want to give you more)
Something that no one else can give
I want to give you more
(I want to give you more)
I want to give you more
I want to give you more
(I want to give you more)
I want you addicted to me

    Well, I really don't understand why this song has no comments on it, considering it is a great song.

    I think it's about someone trying so hard to be like someone else they follow everything thing that this other person does and they find that they're addicted to them. The other person likes that the person is following them cause they feel like a leader.

    its pretty common sense this song is about a relationship the guy being extrememly controlling and manipulative and loves the feeling of power over the girl.

    "As long as I'm inside you You'll never want me to leave"

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”

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.
