Another morning with my eyes towards the Hudson
Wishing the current would carry me away
I would kill to make it to the Atlantic
If the world would only stop for me

Another day that I can't face your blue eyes
We're falling apart
and I'm scared to death
You were much worse for wear and I...
Am taking the blame for this

I am falling towards the coast
Let the waves crash over me
To life, to glory goes the toast
as I become the sea

Lord, get me out of this city tonight
Cause you are what made me feel alive
Here I am again, running away from the truth
Just know, that you move me, like I've never been moved
Yeah, like I've never been moved

Another night, looking past you towards the Hudson
Wishing I could move the mountains with my two eyes
I would kill to make it to the horizon
If the world would only stop for us

Another day that I crumbled beneath the sky
My regret is taking the place of all my dreams
It's all thats left to fill the void you left behind
But I, I guess I always had the choice

I am falling towards the coast
Let the waves crash over me
To life, to glory goes the toast
as I become the sea

Lord, get me out of this city tonight
Cause you are what made me feel alive
Here I am again, running away from the truth
Just know, that you move me, like I've never been moved
Yeah, like I've never been moved

They say the wind is everyone that you've ever loved
Grazing their lips upon your cheek
(the sweet surrender of reverie)
And they say the wind is everyone that you've ever loved
Grazing their lips upon your cheek

Lord, get me out of this city tonight
Cause I just want to make it out alive
Lord, get me out of this city tonight
Oh, you made me feel alive
Oh, Here I am
Here I am again, running away from the truth
And just know, that you move me, like I've never been moved

Lord, get me out of this city tonight
Cause you are what made me feel alive
Here I am again, running away from the truth
Just know, that you move me, like I've never been moved
Yeah, you move me, like I've never been moved


Yeah, you move me, like I've never been moved

    i like the two people singing lead vocals because it makes the whole break up thing more realistic and different from all the other break up songs. very well done

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.

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.

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."
