Since K Got Over Me

Juliet
I get on my knees
Speaking in tongues
Of washed out sun and
Perfect clarity
Well I get so delerious
I think myself to sleep
Standing on the sidewalk
Sometimes it's with him

I don't think I'll be happy anyway
Just scratching out my name
And everything so loosy
And so creepy
Since K got over me
Since K got over me

All my senses shot
My hands are fixed
I'm really tired of making lists
It's just this emptiness
I can't chase it away
And when the evening paints the streets
When the evening paints the streets
It's like walking on a trampoline

I don't think I'll be happy anyway
Just scratching out my name
But everythings so livid
And so creepy
Since k got over me
Since k got over me

Theres a hope inside my skull
With warm air blowing in
Standing on the sidewalk
Where do I begin?

I dont think I'll be happy anymore
I guess I closed that door
But everynight a strange geometry
Since K got over me
Since K got over me

Year: 2005

    here's what i've been wondering: IS THIS SONG ABOUT A GIRL AT ALL? or is it a terribly clever description of a k-hole? witness:

    "everything's so vivid and so creepy" "there's a hole inside my skull" "every night, a strange geometry"

    First: "speaking in tongues" is a reference to the difficulty not only in describing a k-hole but in the physical act of speaking whilst embroiled in one.

    "when the evening paints the streets, it's like walking on a trampoline." this is a possible reference to the feeling of "lightness" which accompanies the onset of a ketamine trip. And if you were taking it before going to a club or party (not necessarily wise, but hey--it's not unheard of), the nature of a k-trip (a couple of hours long, with the "light" feeling and collateral effects lasting, sometimes, into the next day) would suggest that you take it "when the evening paints the streets."

    "All my senses sharp, my hands are fists" Not technically correct, as ketamine dulls taste and smell, but touch, sensitivity to sound (though not necessarily appreciation for it), and vision are all heightened dramatically.

    "It's just this emptiness, I can't chase it away"... why do you think it's called a k-hole? Same for "There's a hole inside my head..." though this line is, admittedly, cribbed from some murderess or other's description of her mental instability.

    The clincher is the line "but every night, a strange geometry," which is such an obvious description of "vitamin K"'s effect as to be unmistakeable. Users frequently describe seeing, in low light (thus, "every NIGHT"), intense and intricate geometric patterns resolving and dissolving before their eyes. Yes, Alasdair, I can only imagine things WOULD be pretty vivid and creepy once K "got over you."

    Nice theory Owen. But unfortunately, i live really near this band (often in my local pub) in west london, and almost no one does ketamine in london. It just isn't done. That doesn't rule out the drug reference, but if you met these guys you might be a little doubtful of your theory, as they're lovely, but far too St Martin's for ketamine.

    this is totally a song of heartbreak, and the feelings that come afterwards. 'it's just this emptiness / i can't keep it away.' 'i don't think i'll be happy anyway.' this song is awesome.

    I agree, beautiful song, does anyone have any thoughts on the use of "K" in place of a name?

    you could apply it to drugs, but it could also be about a woman, K. i listen to the song and it sounds exactly like the feeling of that, someone getting over you when you arent over them.

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.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
