The moon is full
But there is an incompleteness
The days are beautiful
But I feel a bitter sweetness
If I had a wish, or even a choice, I'd wake up to the sound of your voice

Oh, how I miss waking up to the sound of your voice

I let you down
And fell right off your good list
I hope each day you'll find peace
And forgiveness
The alarm clock rings
What a lonely noise
And I long for the sound of your voice

Oh, how I miss waking up to the sound of your voice

Take it from me: there's not much to see
In this void

The saying goes
There will be other dances
This little song is about
Second chances
Just say the word
And I will rejoice
And wake up to the sound of your voice

Oh, how I miss waking up
To the sound
To the sound
To the sound
To the sound
Waking up to the sound of your voice

Take it from me: there's not much to see
In this void

    I like BNL because their songs are interpretable and have a solid meaning, unlike so many other bands which just string together words which sound good.

    Some misses the voice of his girlfriend.

    BNL rule. he has let his girlfriend down "i let you down". and he misses her. but instead of saying that, they put it so sweetly and says that he misses the sound of her voice. also he wants a second chance to hear her voice again tho they have split up. its so sweet. though for me it is so true because im in love with my boyfriend and if i had a wish or a choice i would wake up to the sound of his voice. BNL rule, seeing them in march. cant wait. xx

    Another reason why I only listen to BNL when I'm really down... The 'DON'T GIVE UP' makes me happy in this one.

    Kevin Hearn rules. He has such a sweet voice. I wish he had sung this song on the album.

    That is defenitely true, and that happens, even after breakup, for suck a long time, you'd still want to as hear the voice of which you always wake up hearing.

    This song is fantastic. Especially how they perform it without Steve Page. I saw them in LA last month and this song was the best part of the show.

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.

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?
Album art
Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.
