Stay forever who you are
Don't change a thing
Because you perfect

You sway
Gently in the breeze
In between my dreams
It kinda makes me nervous

Your storm
Is lighting striking down
It only strikes me once
But still be worth it

In my dreams you were perfect
When I woke up you were perfect

As scaring as it is
Tell me is it real
If it ain't hurtin'

I break
When the sounding on your face
My colours bleed to one
Nothing grows when your love is gone

In my dreams you were perfect
When I woke up you were perfect

Mmm even when you run
You're still worth it
Here and now the moment's perfect

So perfect

When you run
RUN, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah RUN!
Even in my dream, when I wake up

Perfect, yeah perfect
Baby, baby, baby,
Baby, baby, Yeah!

Yeah, yeah

    Lyrics are a bit off... Obviously about being in love with someone, putting them on a pedestal, thinking that they're perfect, and not wanting them to change.

    =| Put bluntly, I really, really do not like this song. The lyrics are screwed, and the song is annoying. Nobody is 'perfect'. Just a speculation here... if you replace every 'perfect' in the song with the word 'perving', it suddenly takes on an entirely different meaning...

    Of course nobody is perfect; she clearly means that the person is perfect for her. Beautiful song.

    My beloved dog Rufi passed away in March 2013. She was 14 years old and had a neurological condition that left her paralysed but thankfully NOT in pain. I nursed and cared for her until the day we had to let her go. When I heard this was as if I was singing it to my beloved Rufi...she WAS PERFECT to me, despite her little body breaking down, despite it all...despite the tears and anguish of knowing I was losing her...having been blessed by her presence and her love and her devotion...was so worth all my anguish and suffering...and now that she's that she's not here...she still is PERFECT to me. My Rufi when I see her in my dreams she is so perfect. RIP Darling Angel Rufi 6 Dec 1998 - 24 Mar 2013 Mummy xxx

The Last Dance
Within Temptation
@[Kahiara:35260] Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
