It's freezing in Bristol
there's love on the tele
a girl grinning at me
she's doing the shimmy
and she's cruel
and she's skinny
and she's a fool
for the last living rock king
it's her thrill
it's her wonder
it's her will
it's her way home
she's right where she always wanted to be
she can't change
it's lightening in London
([whisper] it's lightening in London)
there's shit on the tele
(there's shit on TV)
you're pushing my buttons
(pushing my buttons)
you know how to touch me
and I knew
that you'd choose me
by the times
that you tried to refuse me
it's your thrill
it's your wonder
it's your will
it's your way home
you're right where you always wanted to be
you can't change
it's morning in Philly
([whisper] it's morning in Philly)
my head's feeling heavy
(my head's feeling heavy)
the sun makes me dizzy
(the sun makes me sick)
you monkey, you left me
and I know
that you miss me
by the way
that you kiss and resist me
it's my thrill
it's my wonder
it's my will
it's my way home
I'm right where I always dreamed I would be
I can't change

    General CommentI doubt this song is about Dave Grohl, it doesn't fit the timeline of events.

    VS record "Eight Arms to Hold You" from June 1996-August 1996 in Hawaii.

    Louise & Dave meet and record the "Touch" Soundtrack in October 1996 in Seattle. And even though Dave's married, he & Louise begin an affair.

    "Eight Arms to Hold You" is released in February 1997.

    Dave & Louise breakup in September 1997.

    So unless Louise wrote & recorded this song really late (like November/December 1996) and added it to the album at the last minute, it can't be about Dave. Although Dave's wife (who he left to be with Louise) was a photographer, which makes the title "Shutterbug" really ironic...
