Father may I go so slowly in my own dreams
Standing here alone in the dark know my weight

Down where I've gone next time
Show your glory
Won't go away
Won't go away
Then I saw the magic glowing of your hand
If I could move this letter
Casting eyes from above you
(Last time)
I have held diamonds in my hand
(One time)
Weren't you alone?
Opened my eyes
When I was sleeping
Thank you
The town, the field
Every to moment
Diamonds are free-well
So long whilst I remain so
Been a savior to me

Mother may I go so slowly in my own dream
Standing here alone in the dark
Well I do

Down where I've gone next time
Show me your glory
Won't go away
Just go away

Then I saw the magic glowing in your eyes
If I could move each letter casting eyes from above
You remind me of a secret, place woe
Then I saw the magic glowing out you're name
We'll ask your name oh, we'll ask your name

It's Hiding, then rise
Planets sky
Will make still
I can dream

    "(Last time) I have held diamonds in my hand "

    Sounds like a reference to "Red Elephant" 's chorus

    oh, but about the meaning...

    for some reason i always think of sexual abuse or incest when i read these lyrics. it makes me think a boy's father abuses him & his mother, and the boy is telling his mom how to escape it all. and rise with lettered sky. kind of a depressing theory, but that's life...

    yeah, this song is beautiful. i still can't understand half of it, what it means or what jeremy's saying, but still, it's got to be in my top 3.

    I think this song, as a whole, is referring to Jeremy's ever growing faith in God, although some of the lyrics dont altogether make that obvious. I think all of the references to Parents in this song may be in reality another way of referring to Jesus. "The magic glowing of your hand" is Jeremy's awakening to the power of faith in God. I also think that this song is about realizing you can accomplish so much more if you allow yourself to believe you can.

    Just my two cents, its a great song.

    SVTristan is right. This is more or less a transcription of a mystical experience where the singer feels close to either two dieties or two facets of the same diety. It's not clear if that distinction even matters to the singer.

    The last part I interpret as: the will to make stillness inside yourself causes an almost slippery consciousness expansion. Planets, sky.

    What I think Jeremy is singing at the start of the bridge is not "Weren't you alone?" It is "Cause you were the Lord".

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.

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."

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
