Did you ever think of me
As your best friend

Did I ever think of you
I'm not complaining

I never tried to feel
I never tried to feel this vibration
I never tried to reach
I never tried to reach your eden

Did I ever think of you
As my enemy

Did you ever think of me
I'm complaining

I never tried to feel
I never tried to feel this vibration
I never tried to reach
I never tried to reach your eden

    It's about regret and not giving a relationship the chance it deserved. It's about wanting more and giving less, hearing but not listening. It's about two people that might have hurt each other.

    In this song, she is admitting her part in the failed relationship- if only she had loved completely, she might have discovered his true being, she might have found her paradise as well...

    i think she just fell in love with a guy, who obviously doesn't want her as his gf. so she asks questions, how he felt about her, as a friend, as an enemy? &she apologizes for loving him; she never meant to love him it just accidently happened, she's probably just insecure.

    I changed my mind on this one.

    I think she's trying to casually ask what he thinks of her...and by the end she admits that yes, she really is complaining.

    winglessdreamer-- I think when she says 'i never tried to reach your eden," maybe she means that she never tried to reach that secret part of him...she never tried to get to know him fully like she probably should have.

    When I hear this, I picture the narrator of the song silently observing her old boyfriend. The two might have just broken or he might be at the grocery store with another woman. I feel like the lyrics are all in her mind, though, because of the phrase "Did I ever think of you, As my enemy." She's being retrospective, perhaps blaming herself for the failure of their relationship. The 'Eden' is the perfect relationship that the partner wanted, but that she kept them from.

    this song is a conversation between a plant and a human under the influence and connected to plant and natural world vibrations

    Eden is so beautiful, this song always reminds me to that one special friend of me, who i, unfortunately, don't see that often anymore.

    He had put these first lines on a letter to me: "Did you ever think of me As your best friend Did I ever think of you I'm not complaining

    I never tried to feel I never tried to feel this vibration I never tried to reach I never tried to reach your eden"

    I love everything about this song. The lyrics, the melody, the voice...

    I totally went crazy when i heard her sing it live on Marktrock '04, and took my phone immediately to let that friend hear it.

    I don't think that's about a human and a plant :p

    I think it's about two persons, who are insecure about eachother. She wonders what she meant to him, what he thought about her. Did he think she was his best friend? His enemy? She said she never tried to reach his eden, eden is like heaven. But i'm not sure what they mean with saying she never tried to reach his eden... Any ideas?

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,

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.
