Sitting at the edge of the bed
One million thoughts as I reflect.
Tease me just a little I'm not hard to persuade
fully aware for this that I might pay.
Not too much that can be said
Thinking about the bad things in my head,
Always wondering if what they said was true
Now I'm in the bed with...
Even though she was no stranger,
Chose the one keep me out of danger.
No song and dance just jump right in.

Fought the urge to do it skin to skin
What the hell here I go jump right in

Standing in the doorway of distress
Ask MD, for ways out of this mess,
A wave of panic every time I lose a hair
I believe I'm falling apart but not quite despair.
Turns into this one thing I just can't ignore
Don't know what I am feeling anymore
I guess it's time to end this affair
Like I don't care I don't care.

Fought the urge to do it skin to skin
What the hell here I go jump right in

Even though she was no stranger
Chose the one keep me out of danger
No song and dance I took my chances with her
No time to waste.
Just jump right in I said to her
Stand in the doorway of distress
No time to waste just jump right in,

Fought the urge to do it skin to skin
What the hell here I go jump right in

    this song is actually about 'doin' the wild thing' without protection ('skin to skin') and then finding out that you had contracted HIV. (check the second verse)

    has nothing to do with HIV silly.... it has to do with he had sex with a friend of his, his good girlfriend that kept him out of trouble, and he asking his pstchiatrist how to stop being with her, because he is unsure if he likes her more then a friend, he doesnt really want more. Was just supposed to be fun sex and now it's really complicated and he is stressed out.

    Been in that same situation and yeah it's prettty bad, but I'd do it all over again, sex was damn good..... eh, lost my friend though ;)

    No, Vertigorn, I think it's pretty obviously about the HIV thing. Look at the "Always wondering if what they said was true" line. Rumors about her being HIV+. "A wave of panic every time I lose a hair"...he's talking about being excessively paranoid. In fact the whole second verse fits that theory. "Taking a chance with her", "skin to skin"...

    I think it's pretty clearly to do with HIV.

    i think that steve is trying to say that he doenst worry about contracting a disease, because disease's are only given to those who are unworthy.

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.

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."
