Think of all the things I do,
'Cause I still hold the thought of you,
For someone else I know it's true so far away,
And I can only hold hold my breath,
And start to die a lonely death,
With you and me and all the rest, so far away,
Don't say I told you so,
One thing you'll never know,

You're not the same,
You've changed,
I don't need you anyways,
You're not the person, that I believed in yesterday,
You're not the same,
You've changed,
I don't need you anyways,
You're not the person, that I believed in yesterday,

I can hold it back you see,
I know it all comes back to me,
You must have practiced hard to be so far away,
You never wanted me to to show,
Just write me up, I'll let you go,
And now there's more for you to know so far away,
Don't say I told you so,
One thing you'll never know,

You're not the same,
You've changed,
I don't need you anyways,
You're not the person, that I believed in yesterday,
You're not the same,
You've changed,
Something's missing anyways,
You're not the person, that I believed in yesterday.

    Yeah, this song is totally awesome. I think it is about someone changing (obviously) and now the narrator doesn't like 'em all that much. I love this song, I first heard of these guys of Punkzilla, and they rock.

    Yeah, Bodyjar rock out all over Australia they are awesome. I've got How it Works and Plastic Skies, two of their albums and they are both great. This would have to be close to their best song though.

    Bodyjar's best song along with One In A Million. I saw these guys at the uni bar a couple of months back along with one dollar short and i have to say that although i would probly prefer ODS, bodyjar put on a much better show. Good Shit

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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,
