The scent of a woman was not mine

Welcome home, darling
Did you miss me?
Wish to dwell in dear love?

Touch my milk-like skin
Feel the ocean
Lick my deepest
Hear the starry choir

Rip off this lace
That keeps me imprisoned
But beware the enchantment
For my eroticism is your oblivion

Old love lies deep, you said
Deeper shall be the wound between your legs

    Hand of Meadhros: sweet loving, my darling, did you miss me? Deeper shall be the wound between your legs!!!

    :D

    Tuomas and the band keep saying they hate this song and that it was a mistake. I love it. It's from woman's point of view - she comes home, finding out he was with another woman, and she decides for a revenge, a sexual one.

    spacepirate, the wound is meant to be the penis! Remember who's singing it! And it sounds like it's meant to be a woman singing it.

    I noticed there was no comment for this song, so I decided to post one... I think this song is about a womans' significant other coming home, and she knows he's been unfaithful...sorry I know I suck at this...

    I love it at what Toumas said about Nymphomaniac Fantasia on the End of Innocence DVD.

    "The scent of a woman was not mine..., how can you possibly start out a song like that? I stand behind all my songs, except this one.

    Elvenpath has some hilarious lyrics too." My favorite part of the dvd besides the band rocking out on stage.

    "Deeper shall be the wound between your legs" = she's going to cut off his penis for cheating

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
