Can you feel me breathing on your skin,
whisper on your neck?
Can you feel it rolling from your chin,
right down to your breasts?
Can you feel my eyelashes begin
to open on your cheeks?
Can you feel me staring 'cus I'm staring.
My heart’s about to leak,
but you’re fast asleep.
You don’t feel a thing.
I speak,
and you don’t hear a thing.

Intoxicated,
and fast asleep,
up on a rooftop,
above the street,
and I wish that you would come down here with me.

Put your clothes back on.

Intoxicated,
and fast asleep,
and I wish that you would come down here with me.

If I stole these kisses
from broken lips,
I’m sorry but don’t say I didn’t try.
If I stole these kisses
from silent lips,
don’t be sorry and don’t say I didn’t try

    Like all Styder songs, it's about sex. It's about getting a girl drunk and then having sex with her when she's passed out. They're spectacular.

    the song only gets fantastic at If I stole these kisses from broken lips, IÂ’m sorry but donÂ’t say I didnÂ’t try. If I stole these kisses from silent lips, donÂ’t be sorry and donÂ’t say I didnÂ’t try

    otherwise its superb

    by the way i think its if i stole these kisses while whispering, i could be wrong

    the second post covered the meaning

    Intoxicated, and fast asleep, up on a rooftop, above the street,

    this reminds me of my boyfriend. i know the second post says the meaning, and thats not why. just it talks about sleeping on rooftops and my boyfriend always talks about going roofing with me and just spending the night there.

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."

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,

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
