Feel my heart burning
Deep inside, yearning
I know it is coming

A fettered heart, waking
Tainted youth, fading
Leave it all behind
Delirious again
Mesmerize my senses
Souls entwine one more time

All our times will come
Searching oblivion
Leaving nothing but the memories of
All the things you give
They're all you'll leave behind
Within their mind

Open laughter held in distant days
Eternal stars have changed
I know that it can't be the same
There's no lament for you tonight

Feel my heart burning
Deep inside, yearning
I know it is coming

All our times will come
Searching oblivion
Leaving nothing but the memories of
All the things you give
They're all you'll leave behind
Within their mind

Time recedes every day
And you can search your soul but you won't see
As we pass ever on and away
Towards some blank infinity

    what tha F.. anybody see that is no the lyric at all??? Deep by Anthema

    Feel my heart burning Deep inside... yearning I know it is coming

    A fettered heart, waking Tainted youth, fading Leave it all behind Delirious again Mesmerize my senses Souls entwine one more time

    All our times will come Searching oblivion Leaving nothing but the memories of All the things you give They're all you'll leave behind Within their mind

    Open laughter held in distant days Eternal stars have changed I know that it can't be the same There's no lament for you tonight

    Feel my heart burning Deep inside... yearning I know it is coming

    All our times will come Searching oblivion Leaving nothing but the memories of All the things you give They're all you'll leave behind Within their mind

    Time recedes every day You can search your soul but you won't see As we pass ever on and away Towards some blank infinity

    This is both the most depressing and most uplifting song I've ever heard. Kind of a strange feeling to describe. Achingly beautiful, I suppose...

    To me, it's about regret for a wasted youth and the realization that those moments will never return.

    I agree... seriously man! This is one song which is so depressingly soothing! Its like everytime i feel screwed up in life, i come back and listen to this song... it hurts but still it comforts you in its own strange way.

    Yeah i really hope that they stick to what they're doing and not poke their ass into creating meaningless stuff. But its sad that many people dont even know that such a band exists. This band is so truly awesome and original...

    Such memories with this song ... first Anathema song that I heard, and I listened to this album a lot (A LOT!) back in summer of '99 - a summer of great and varied changes in my personal life. So just on that level, this song means a great deal to me, all kinds of personal things concerning friends, a girlfriend and so on.

    But the song itself is, I believe, about life as a whole. Just about being born, growing up and all that - and where everyone's heading, eventually.

    MELANCOLIC, DEPRESSIVE, MESMERIZING .... A PAINFUL LUST THAT CREATES ADDICTION.

    AS I LISTEN TO THIS SONG I FEEL STRONG, I FEEL WEEK, I FEEL CONFUSED, LOST. A STRANGE KIND MIXTURE OF PAIN AND PLEASURE SHAKENS MY SENSES. MEMORIES OF THE PAST AND VISIONS OF FUTURE DARKEN MY SIGHT AND I FALL PRISONER TO ITS SWEET SOUND. IT TAKES ME DEEP ' INSIDE MY INNER SELF... SO DEEP THAT I CAN HARDLY GET OUT.

    I THINK THIS SONG IS ABOUT THIS: 'WHAT AM I TO THIS WORLD ?' SUCH A BIG QUESTION FOR A SMALL EXISTENCE

    Song Meaning

    To understand meaning of this song (full Judgement album), you need know that was the time when mother of Cavanagh brothers died. Full album is dedicated to her. The album is about pain, longing, memories, anger. And every son (include this one which open the album) is full of this emotion.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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,

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/

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran

The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
