Hide away
Keep safe
Put your hand s
on your eyes
They wont mind
They're scared
You will be fine

I hear you
Whisper
I 'll be home soon

Fake with open arms

Rests inside of you
You should see the harm
They can do to you
If we stay to long
Being led to sleep
I wanted you to touch
I wanted you to see

They'll never find you
Through your hands
I tried to give you
All I can

Because I'm quiet
You think I'm weak
But all my secrets
Belong to me

Fake with open arms

They'll never find you
Through your hands
I tried to give you
All I can

Because I'm quiet
You think I'm weak
But all my secrets
Belong to me

    I really do love this song, vex red's sound is jsut so emotiona - like the sound on the part where he's whispering "I want to be heard Be missed I want to de loved Be kissed" and then the breakout of sound and him sort of yelling in a shaky voice "You said you' help me!!!" is just soo.... damn, vex red has an incredible emotional sound htat jsut kicks ass

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."
