Love me to death cause I need the sleep
I've been wide awake
She hit me with a hand of broken nails
It hurts to give
When my heart has had too much to take
Another blow
Another broken spell
And it hits so hard

Heart fist
Love me to the head and hurts too bad
You're going all around
(I don't know why you can be so cold)
Oh yeah
It beats so hard into my chest
I prop my feet against the ground
(You've got to bite the hand that feeds you)
All right
I'm going down so why put up a fight
It's gonna hit me
It's gonna hit me
Heart fist

Don't leave another bomb to blow my head
It's gonna hit me
It's gonna hit me

[Chorus]
Love me to death cause I need the sleep
I've been wide awake
She hit me with a hand of broken nails
It hurts to give
When my heart has had too much to take
And you know how to hit it
Heart fist
Heart fist
Heart

Heart fist
Into the way of pumping blood from me
Alive before I drown
(I don't know, how do you think so cold)
All right
You lure me to your bed of nails
And then hit me when I'm down
(You gotta bite the hand that feeds you)
All right
I'm going down so why put up a fight
It's gonna hit me
It's gonna hit me

Heart fist
Don't leave another bomb to blow my head
It's gonna hit me
Yeah, it's gonna hit me

Heart fist
You love to hit me when I'm down
And set me up again
(It's like never getting up from a bad dream)

(Chorus)

I feel the pain that brings me to the ground
I feel another fist begin to pound
Bleed everything and love into submission
Cause I will hit you like a heart condition

(Chorus)

When it all adds up
You don't mean that much to me
Just another kiss to leave me when I'm down
And it hits so hard
Yeah it hits so hard

    I'm pretty sure this is a Chris Cornell demo, as it's featured on "Stolen Prayers" (as opposed to an actual Soundgarden project). Nonetheless, it's unbelievably catchy, thus meaning it rules.

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.

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”

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.

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."
