When I first started writing this I swear my intentions were well
and I'd start with maybe a memory or two
but then I saw you for the first time in a while
and awkward thoughts brought awkward smiles
and I left your room for the very last time and I know
that I can't sleep
with all of these things they're running through my head
so I stayed up and I
I wrote this song about you
isn't that cliche' of me to do
but it's nothing for you
the band just needed something more to play
so don't blush or hooray at the possible sound of your name
no I wouldn't go that far
no
now I
I've watched these years disperse and still this verse lacks words
and I'm losing all but a memory or two
cause now I see you and I can't hold back a smile
your fashion's long gone out of style
and there's nothing left to impress me anymore
cause I know
that I can't see
that same girl that I had known so long ago
so I gave up and I
chorus
no I wouldn't go that faaar
and you're dying to know
if a thank you will show up on my back sleeve
but I don't think I'll tell
of who crafted this hell and fixed it on me to the world
I wrote this song
I wrote it about you
I wrote this song all about you
yeah the band just needed one more song to play
yeah the band just needed one more song to play
yeah
chorus
no I wouldn't go that far
no I wouldn't go that far
no I wouldn't go

    This song is about a guy who's writing about a relationship that didn't end on a happy note. He just needed a song so he looked to this relationship as inspiration which led him to realize that he's just write a song blantently stating the way it ended.

    He claims he actually cared for her but for whatever the reason, it just ended. He remembers all the memories about them being together but he remains vague.

    Then he starts the chorus with a sarcastic tone, more or less turning this song into a mockery and claiming well, oh well, you don't get any credit for making me feel this way and creating this song; you don't deserve that much credit

    and he stresses that point with his constant repetition of "no, i wouldn't go that far"

    yep, downforbreakfast definitely got it, atleast thats exactly what i was thinking...

    he's thinkin about her alot, and alot more than he should be and writing the song about her helps, but then he just is more or less trying to convince himself hes just writing it just for the sake of having another song, not giving her the credit.

    also tho, what first drew me to this song was the way in which he sings "isn't that cliche of me to do" and "i swear my intentions were well" that note on the end of both lines, i love how he does it with his voice, definitely a really good singer, great song, great band.

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.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
