I'm not surprised, not everything lasts
I've broken my heart so many times, I stopped keeping track
Talk myself in, I talk myself out
I get all worked up then I let myself down

I tried so very hard not to lose it
I came up with a million excuses
I thought I'd thought of every possibility

And I know some day that it'll all turn out
You'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And I promise you, kid, that I'll give so much more than I get, mm
I just haven't met you yet
Mm, mm, mm, mm

I might have to wait, I'll never give up
I guess it's half-timing and the other half's luck
Wherever you are, whenever it's right
You'll come out of nowhere and into my life

And I know that we can be so amazing
And baby, your love is gonna change me
And now I can see every possibility, mm

And somehow, I know that it'll all turn out
You'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And promise you, kid, I'll give so much more than I get, mm
I just haven't met you yet

They say all's fair
In love and war
But I won't need to fight it
We'll get it right and we'll be united

And I know that we can be so amazing
And being in your life is gonna change me
And now I can see every single possibility, mm

And someday, I know it'll all turn out
And I'll work to work it out
Promise you, kid, I'll give more than I get
Than I get, than I get, than I get

Oh, you know it'll all turn out
And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And promise you, kid, to give so much more than I get, yeah
I just haven't met you yet

I just haven't met you yet
Oh, promise you, kid, to give so much more than I get
(I said love, love, love, love, love, love, love)
I just haven't met you yet
(Love, love, love, love, love, love)
I just haven't met you yet

    Simple meaning really, it's about a guy who's had their heart broken many times and finds it hard to trust anyone now in case he's let down again, "I've broken my heart so many times" and "I get all worked up, Then I let myself down"

    But one day he's met a girl or seen one (love at first sight?) and can't help but like her and tried to talk himself out of it. "I tried so very hard not to lose it, I came up with a million excuses"

    He hasn't given up on love entirely but he's still finding it hard to trust someone, and he needs the girl to work hard to prove she loves him to bring him out of his shell, so they can work on their relationship, and once he does trust her fully then he gives more then he gets, he just needs to get to know her better. "And I know someday that it'll all turn out You'll make me work so we can work to work it out And I promise you kid that I'll give so much more than I get I just haven't met you yet"

    And the rest of the song is just talking about how he's sure someone's gonna change him.

    I love this song. It gives me hope to wait for the person I'm meant to be with, even though I don't know who they are yet. :]

    I also love how it's so positive, because some songs with similar meanings make you feel all depressed. Haha.

    i love this song, i can totally relate to it <3 i think it means that you could have had many relationships that didn't work out, so you have to look forward to meeting that one person that you can spend your whole life with.

    This is totally about his girfriend Luisana Lopilato. He sings "kid" because he's 12 years older than her.

    Lovely tune.

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.

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.
