She was soft
She was unbroken
Dressed in the pink
That she wore as a token
To the summer
To the summer

Always clean
Always precautious
She was the devil
And she danced with the roses
In the summer...

She was rhyme
She was the reason
I left my life
For a sole that was freezing
In the summer...

Always cold, always in endearing
Sweet in the woods
She was naked and kneeling
In the summer...

A thought came down
And washed away the hurt
And there's always something
You can learn

A thought came down
And washed away the hurt
And there's always something
You can learn

Maybe wrong
Way beyond redemption
Caught between
My desire and intention
To protect her
From the summer...

I gave my word i would only teach her
Deep in believing
That the wisdom would release her
From her keepers
And the summer

Overwhelmed, primitive emotions
Struck by the river
That was screaming for the ocean
In the summer...

Silent now
No-one else beguiling
Lost in thew woods
I will always hear her crying
In the summer...

A thought came down
And washed away the hurt
And there's always something
You can learn

A thought came down
And it washed away the hurt
And there's always something
You can learn

You can learn

    General CommentPretty sure it's "A FLOOD came down and washed away the hurt." Not a "thought." That doesn't even make sense.

    General CommentMissing Fairy is right
    Lolita is a book about an older man lusting after a girl (her name is Lolita) who is about 13 I think.
    Never read it, but I know the reference from another song.
    Currently listening to IAMX >>>> AMAZING

    General CommentThe book itself is by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov. The girl is 12-years-old.

    QUOTE:
    "She was musical and apple-sweet ... Lola the bobby-soxer, devouring her immemorial fruit, singing through its juice ... and every movement she made, every shuffle and ripple, helped me to conceal and to improve the secret system of tactile correspondence between beast and beauty--between my gagged, bursting beast and the beauty of her dimpled body in its innocent cotton frock."

    General CommentI've read the book, the song kind of tells the same story, maybe its just his interpretation of a book he loves?

    My InterpretationThis song is about a relationship with a girl who is too young. Hence the name "Lolita." I've never read the book, so I'm not sure if the lyrics have to do with any specific events related to it. I'm just going based on my experience being with and older man.

    She was soft
    She was unbroken
    Dressed in the pink
    That she wore as a token
    To the summer
    To the summer

    This is describing her youth. Unbroken meaning either "a virgin" or emotionally/mentally unbroken.

    Maybe wrong
    Way beyond redemption
    Caught between
    My desire and intention
    To protect her
    From the summer...

    By "desire" he really means his sexual desire. Being attracted to someone underage is extremely confusing and complicated. You want to act on your strong sexual desire for her, but at the same time you couldn't because you love her and would be hurting her in the long run. You often feel guilty and like you're doing something wrong. You just can't help it, especially when the girl is a tease.

    Always cold, always in endearing
    Sweet in the woods
    She was naked and kneeling
    In the summer...

    I might just have a dirty mind, but I'm pretty sure this is describing her preforming fellatio in the woods.

    Btw I think the correct lyrics are

    A FLOOD came down
    And it washed away the hurt

    I could be wrong tho.

    General CommentYes, this is an IAMX song. ^^ It's hard to find, but while going through Limewire one day, I found it. It's a really pretty song. It's kinda like Pretty Little Angel, you know? It's not on The Alternative or Kiss + Swallow, but it's definately Chris's voice. o:

    General Commentafter intensive searching I found it!! :) it's actually very nice and relaxing.. but it sounds to me more like a Sneaker Pimps' song ... anyways the most important thing is that it has the amazing Chris Corner's voice!
