Put up your hands girl but not so, so pushy
If you wanna be comn' and makn' sweet love to me
And if your the type of girl that do anything me please
Maybe then I realize you ain't got what I need
To keep my soul alright
It keeps me up high above
Yes me got the reason to come question your love
It keeps my soul alright
It keeps me up high above
Want me girlie to come give me some sweet lovn'
And in the morning time she makes me feel alright
Then me gotta be waitn' till the day turns to night
Cause in the evening time she makes me feel alright
Girl you got me wishin' this would happen every night

Miles and sister
Said if you want to get with me
Girl this is what you'll find
But a man who's got the type of moves to make you lose your mind
You tell me that your love is true on each and every day
You tell me that you've got that type of lovn' here to stay
Sweet honey

You see me laughin'
Cause it's kinda funny to me
The way she say she never give her lovn' for free
She say she got a man why she lookn' at me
Yes she want a lover with the sensativity ya

But won't you tell me that your loves from the heart
Yes the type of lovn' that can tear a man apart
Girl you got to realize before it ever starts
Yes I am the man who won't come breakn' your heart

Said if you want to get with me
Girl this is what you'll find
But a man who's got the type of moves to make you lose your mind
You tell me that your love is true on each and every day
You tell me that you've got that type of lovn' here to stay
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my money
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my lovn'
Yes you try to tell me that you're sent from above
Girl you give me reason to come question your love
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my money
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my lovn'
Yes you try to tell me that your sent from above
Girl you give me reason to come question your love
Sweet honey

Said if you want to get with me
Girl this is what you'll find
But a man who's got the type of moves to make you lose your mind
You tell me that your love is true on each and every day
You tell me that you've got that type of lovn' here to stay
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my money
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my lovn'
Yes you try to tell me that you're sent from above
Girl you give me reason to come question your love
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my money
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my lovn'
Yes you try to tell me that you're sent from above
Girl you give me reason to come question your love
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my money
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my lovn'
Yes you try to tell me that you're sent from above
Girl you give me reason to come question your love
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my money
Sweet honey
She gonna steal my lovn'
Yes you try to tell me that you're sent from above
Girl you give me reason to come question your love
Sweet honey

Said little women with your pretty red dress on
The type of women make you never forget
Said little women with your pretty red dress on
The type of women make you never forget

    Miles' singing at the very end sounds so much like Iron & Wine

    It's called songmeanings.net. Can someone please put what they think this song is about? I think it could be about a woman who knows exactly what she is doing. She knows how to make a man feel good. Like he is the only one she loves. It might be a little over the top for the guy but it works. And then she takes him for everything he has got. Any one else?

    I think its about a girl that thinks shes perfect but the singer can see right through it and says your love might not be the real thing (i.e. "yes you try to tell me that you're sent from above girl you give me reason to come question your love")

    She is like the perfect girl but her love might not be true to him.

    its about the pros and cons of dating and his paranoia of getting brokenhearted. he starts of talking about the good things a girl gives, loving before and after work, then talks about y he likes that stuff it keeps his soul okay, then it has a gay as chorus that i dont like, then kyle says his two cents, cuz hes a boss, then miles goes on with please dont hurt me kinda lyrics, showing the cons. the ending chorus is sick, she gonna steal my money. Just another thing chicks do.

    look at it how you want but i know slightly stoopid personally and i came to this site to clear and the crap up. cuz the SS buys actually use this site. not telling u thier username.

    Thank you, vaucoi3. This site is for meanings, really. To me, this song is brilliant. But so are the rest of their songs. He means that she seems perfect, and she gives him what he needs. But he is not sure if it's the real thing. She has great things about her and then she has bad things about her. Basically, they are trying to say that they think she is faking it. And KaliforniaKoastKid, I highly doubt you know them. But your personal viewing of the song is your own opinion. So people should not get angry about how other people interpret the song. And if you do happen to know them, I doubt they get angry about misinterpreting their songs. Artists write songs for their fans to decide how they want to see them.

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.

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.

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."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.
