Ella se desliza y me atropella
Y, aunque a veces no me importe
Sé que el día que la pierda volveré a sufrir
Por ella, que aparece y que se esconde
Que se marcha y que se queda
Que es pregunta y es respuesta
Que es mi oscuridad, estrella, no no oh

Ella me peina el alma y me la enreda
Va conmigo pero no sé dónde va
Mi rival, mi compañera, que está tan dentro de mi vida
Y, a la vez, está tan fuera, sé que volveré a perderme
Y la encontraré de nuevo
Pero con otro rostro y otro nombre diferente y otro cuerpo
Pero sigue siendo ella, que otra vez me lleva
Nunca me responde, si al girar la rueda

Ella se hace fría y se hace eterna
Un suspiro en la tormenta, a la que tantas veces le cambió la voz
Gente que va y que viene y siempre es ella
Que me miente y me lo niega
Que me olvida y me recuerda
Pero, si mi boca se equivoca
Pero, si mi boca se equivoca
Y al llamarla nombro a otra
A veces siente compasión por este loco, ciego y loco corazón

Sea, lo que quiera Dios que sea
Mi delito es la torpeza de ignorar que quien no tiene corazón
Y va quemando, va quemándome y me quema
Y, ¿si fuera ella?
No, no

Ella me peina el alma y me la enreda
Va conmigo digo yo
Mi rival, mi compañera, esa es ella
Pero me cuesta cuando otro adiós se ve tan cerca
Y la perderé de nuevo, y otra vez preguntaré
Mientras se va y no habrá respuesta
Y, si esa que se aleja
La que estoy perdiendo
Y, ¿si esa era?
Y, ¿si fuera ella?

Sea lo que quiera Dios que sea
Mi delito es la torpeza de ignorar que quien no tiene corazón
Y va quemándome y me quema
Y, ¿si fuera ella? Oh oh

A veces siente compasión por este loco, ciego y loco corazón
¿Era? ¿quién me dice si era ella?
Y, si la vida es una rueda y va girando
Y nadie sabe cuándo tiene que saltar
Y la miro y, ¿si fuera ella?
Y, ¿si fuera ella? Oh

Y, ¿si fuera ella?

    Song Meaning

    Varias veces he intentado poder decifrar el mensaje oculto en esta canción, y por supuesto que encontré uno que realmente me convenció. Aunque parezca raro, ésta canción trata acerca de la "SOLEDAD", él se refiere a la soledad cuando habla de "ELLA", es por eso que él dice que aunque "ella" tenga un rostro y nombre diferente siempre terminará sintiéndose igual... "SOLO".

    Mi canción favorita en español. Todavía me pone la piel de gallina cada vez que la escucho. Quien no ha pensado alguna vez que se ha equivocado dejando ir a una mujer que pudo haber sido el amor de su vida?

    My Interpretation

    Pretty certain, when he talks about "her" he means "the one" - "real love".

    He sees "her" everywhere, with a different face, different body but she always seams to get away, torments him, teases him. What if the one that is just leaving him, the one that he is loosing right now, "what if that was her", "What if she was the one" ?! And life is a wheel, it keeps turning and there is no answer - only torment...

    Pretty powerful song - leaves me with goose bumps and water rising in my eyes every time.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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."
