You make me feel again
Slide across my skin again
Let me uncover you
To rediscover you

And I will open up
If you promise to give in
On this perfect night
Let the two of us be one

We will be again another time
No matter what all the others say
'cause I would leave it all so far behind
Just to be with you today

So make me feel again
Feel your every breathe again
Never mind everyone
There's only me and you

We will be again, another time
No matter what all the others say
Cause I would leave it all so far behind
Just to be with you today
Just to be with you today
(just to be with you)
Today
(just to be with you)
Today

We will be again, another time
No matter what all the others say
Cause I would leave it all so far behind
Just to be with you today

So,
We will be again, another time
And I will do what I need to do
To leave the others all so far behind
Just so I can be [Repeat: x2]
With you [Repeat: x7]

    This song makes me think of my girlfriend, I'd do anything for her and I don't really get to see her too much. I love you Erin!

    Umm the two lovers that posted before me are on the right track, sounds like the speaker is missing his signifigant other. It doesn't seem as though shes dead, the beginning of the song tells that he can be with her now. The end of the song brings up the missing aspect further. Great song.

    God Bless Hoobastank :D

    sounds to me like the song is about an improbable love lost.

    "We will be again another time No matter what all the others say..."

    and wanting that love back...knowing it will come again...or hoping. Something I've lived not so long ago...

    Reading these lyrics, they make me think of how much I miss my ex-boyfriend who wants to commit suicide to runaway from his problems. ~~Angel~~

    this website is about connecting people through music just as much as its meaning of songs, if this song makes you think about lost love than so be it. I love this song, its my fave on the CD its so sweet, and the lyrics are so touching i can feel his pain.

Ave Grave
Thee More Shallows
So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.
