I don't wanna hear the words that you have to say
It doesn't matter anyway, anyway
I don't wanna know your reasons
Why you're changing your seasons now
And you're forced to let go somehow, somehow

At least I smiled when you broke me down
Never choked on the truth
I still choke on your words somehow
All you ever wanted to be was Some Kind Of Perfect
I followed my dreams, you were falling apart
Ripped out the seams, another story at static start
All you ever wanted to be was Some Kind Of Perfect

Did you sober up enough, did your feelings fade away
Did it promise you a life, one that left you so stranded
I just couldn't stand it
Did it piss you off enough when I learned to walk away
Did it hollow you inside when I said everything I had to say

At least I smiled when you broke me down
Never choked on the truth
I still choke on your words somehow
All you ever wanted to be was Some Kind Of Perfect
I followed my dreams, you were falling apart
Ripped out the seams, another story at static start
All you ever wanted to be was Some Kind Of Perfect

its too late too far gone to change
to save your self somehow
but if you just wait a minute
I'm sure we could get it right
but whats right if you live a lie

At least I smiled when you broke me down
Never choked on the truth
I still choke on your words somehow
All you ever wanted to be was Some Kind Of Perfect
I followed my dreams, you were falling apart
Ripped out the seams, another story at static start
All you ever wanted to be was Some Kind Of Perfect

    to me this son is about a guy after a breakup and how he acted like it didnt hurt him, but it tore him apart of the inside. I personally can relate.

    I think it's about a guy who gave up on another person who was just too much. Some lyrics even imply they were involved in drugs. And all through the relationship he tried so hard for the other person and even held back the pain they caused him. He would smile when they broke him down and choked on their words. And it hurts him most that they only tried to be some kind of perfect. But he couldn't handle the pain anymore and left. Thinking it was too late for them to change now. He officially gave up on them and didn't even wanna hear what they had to say. He was fed up. But it still hurt him, knowing they tried nonetheless

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?

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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."
