Watch it go, watch it go, watch it go
She'll have to cut it away to save her life
And she knows, See she knows
It's like a fatal disease
You'll hear her cry, Oh
Take this
Make it something beautiful again
Make this
Make this heaven cause you're beautiful to them

Got you anyway
I'm gonna say that I've been taken over
Come on lets go again
You tell me when
And I'll be taking over

And you know that I'll never (I will do it again)
Do it again (I'll take it away from you)
And I'll tell you I love you (I'll take it again)
(Just give me the chance, I'll take it again)
(I'll take it away from you)
Say it again

Got you anyway
I'm gonna say that I've been taken over
Come on lets go again
You tell me when
And I'll be taking over

And time stands still
It's at a picture
(I think of every word you say)
And time moves on to the next one
(I think of every word you said)
With every word you said

Got you anyway
I'm gonna say that I've been taken over
Come on lets go again
You tell me when
And I'll be taking over

    notice people, i hate to sound bitchy, but it's songMEANINGS.net. i9 don't want to waste scrollingdown to see your empty comments on the song. got it?

    I don't completely understand this song yet, i'll have to listen to it more, but, to my current understanding it's about a girl, obviously.

    She has to cut it away may mean cutting, literally, or isolating herself and forcing things that hurt her or her problems away from her, as if bottling up her emitions and faking it for everyone around her.

    And by the speaker saying "i'll be taking over", maybe as in taking advantage of her, or saying that he will take away her pain, or both. Promising her that he'll be there for her and cares about what she says. hmm i dunno i feel like i might be missing the true meaning, i'll comment back once i hear some more opinions on the MEANING.

    Hey Donielle. I suggest you shut the hell up. People can put whatever they want.

    As for me. I think it's about the harms maniplative realationships can induce on someone.

    And it is. Fuckin' sexy.

    Personally, I think the song is about sex, and taking the girls' virginity, then wanting to do it again. The title also being, "Breathless" puts that idea into mind.

    "Watch it go, watch it go, watch it go" Means she is losing her virginity.

    "And she knows, see she knows It's like a fatal disease, you'll hear her cry ohh" Means she knows that afterward, she is going to want to have sex again. And you'll hear her cry, meaning an orgasm.

    "Got you anyway I'm gonna say that I've been takin over Come, let's go again Tell me when And I'll be taking over" He is saying he has her by taking her virginity and he's experienced and "taking over." Then saying he'll do again, and she has to tell him when.

    Not trying to sounds like all that is on my mind is sex either, haha. It just seemed logical to me, that's all.

    I dunno, I think this song is about the guy going into the relationship thinking it will all be about the physical aspects and that he really doesn't care about her. I think the contradictions in the chorus emphasize this; he tells her one thing, but the truth is that he'll do the opposite. He feels like he has all control in the relationship. He's "been taking over". Voila! Wait for it, here it comes... And then he realizes that he's over his head, and that he's fallen for this girl. He finds himself immersed in every detail about her, every thing she says. "And time stands still It's like a picture (I think of every word you say) And time moves on to the next one I think of every word you said"

    Anyways, that's my take on it. In any case, it's a really mezmerizing song, eh?

Jesse with the long hair....
Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.
