See those birds going across the sky
Three thousand miles they fly
How do they know which way to go?
Somehow they always seem to know
They say there's mother nature in everything we see
Wish I had a little mother nature in me
Wish I had a little mother nature in me

'Cause it's not right, I'm magnetised
To somebody that don't feel it
Love paralyzed, she's never gonna need me
But sure as the world keeps the moon in the sky
She'll keep me hanging on
She keeps me hanging on

See the couple lying on the bus
Falling asleep with so much trust
I wish I had a chance to let them know
Their love is like a flower in the snow
If it's just pheromones then that may be
I wish you had a little pheromones for me
I wish you had a little pheromones for me

'Cause it's not right, I'm magnetised
To somebody that don't feel it
Love paralyzed, I know you're never gonna need me
I'm sure as the world keeps the moon in the sky
She'll keep me hanging on (keep me hanging on)
She'll keep me hanging on (keep me hanging on)
She'll keep me hanging on (keep me hanging on)

North to south, white to black
When you love someone that don't love you back

Yeah it's not right, I'm magnetised
To somebody that don't feel it
Love paralyzed, she's never gonna need me
But sure as the world keeps the moon in the sky
She'll keep me hanging on (keep me hanging on)
She'll keep me hanging on (keep me hanging on)
She'll keep me hanging on (keep me hanging on)
She'll keep me hanging on

    My Opinion

    I think, that this song meaning is pretty strainght forward, he is loving someone who doesn't love him back. However, I think that they are sleeping together, perhaps the girl has a boyfriend. He feels trapped, cause she keeps him hanging on in a way, that he thinks, he might be her boyfriend, not just lover, but she is completely fine with him being just lover and enjoys it, that's why she keeps him around. And when he talks about the couple on the bus he mentions trust, cause he knows, that the girl is lying to her boyfriend and the boyfriend has trust in her, but he doesn't know he shouldn't.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
