Come up crash with the muses, fells dust into ash

Come so close that I might see the light inside you didn't see

Let me hold you tight and arms, tight and arms you lost your chance

Come so close that I might see the crash of light come down on me

With good luck I'll find the dark stop me now
Find me to your heart

Let me hold you tight
Like rain and sunshine on a rainy day
Sunshine on a rainy day
Sunshine on a rainy day

Let me hold you tight and arms, tight and arms you lost your chance

Come so close that I might see, see the light come down on me
With good luck I'll find the dark stop me now
Find me to your heart

Come so close that I might see, see the light come down on me

Searching like the fresh goes by small
Like wind refuse to die

With good luck I'll find the dark stop me now
Find me to your heart
Come so close that I might see, see the light come down on me

Free me now so I can see
Taste the wind and be like me
Taste the wind and be like me
Taste the wind and be like me

    This song is surreal, and actually rather creepy. While not necessarily a bad thing, I can see how it wouldn't suit a lot of tastes. I like it, albeit I could do without the long, drawn-out instrumental portion at the end. The guitar is actually a little too screechy. That part of the song could easily be cut in half or more...and if there was a version like that, I'd for sure download it to my iTunes. I do have this one. It runs 7 minutes and 14 seconds long!

    Anyway, onto the actual meaning: it's simple, isn't it? Hope Sandoval (lead singer) is simply speaking to someone she loves dearly; most likely her lover, as far as I can see. The only line that confuses me is, "You lost your chance." This, along with "Mary of Silence," appear to be streams of consciousness. I think that's all the lyrics are, hence why it sounds rambly to me. So it's rambling with an amazing beat and a drawn-out end. It grew on me, I must say - even though Hope talks and does not sing. It's a standout track on the album.

    This is hands down the trippiest son I've ever heard. Up there with "Mary of Silence," "Umbilical," and "She Hangs Brightly," all by Mazzy Star. Oh, and "Glass + The Ghost Children," by Smashing Pumpkins, too.

    Ugh, I meant to compare STTIMS to Umbilical from Among My Swan, not to Mary of Silence. My mistake...

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.
