I think it's about breaking up and how hard it is, but also continuing to do what you do despite not having the person you do those things with around you anymore. It's a sad song, and it reminds me of my relationship that I'm in currently. It's hard to listen to, and it honestly makes me sad, but you have to remember to continue living your life even if your heart is broken. Read more →

So here's what I've heard about this song: The lyrics are directly pulled from actual random notes sent to a family whose daughter had been kidnapped by a psychopath. The family was not able to pay off the ransoms and the girl was never found. Every verse up until "You don't care a bit" are these notes. "You don't care a bit" is Imogen Heap's take on what the girl was thinking when she realized that no one was coming to save her. It's really eerie and I don't know if this is true but it would really change how people perceived this song. Read more →

'This' in the song title refers to a microphone - is it on? In other words, are people hearing me? The answer in the song is no. Despite hanging out with your best friends talking all night they become inch by inch strangers. Which isn't what normally happens. So, either the main character is experiencing mental illness ("I've been on that ledge"), or is growing and changing and doesn't feel connected to his friends any more. The second seems more likely given the chorus "You're on your own". The bridge reinforces the growing and changing theme: we've always thought of ourselves as better, but now it's not so clear. The world is more complicated and infinite than we previously thought. It's a bittersweet song. Change is sometimes difficult and lonely, but the new world is often more rewarding and interesting.

Staind – For You

Meaning
I've been cold distance between us has grown. You've developed hate. Anger and frustration towards me. You're to blind to see that you're only pushing me away more by the day. We sit around each other n there's only silence. That silence is better than constant arguments. You say I'm always in my little world, but that's cause Every time I try hold you show affection, you push me away n end up right back to your phone. Your social life is not there for you, like I have trying everything in my power to keep you satisfied n happy. For what, so you can tell me the opposite. You're Childhood wasn't the best I understand that about you but you don't stop n realize that you are letting old memories taunt you dwelling on something that could never be n thus making you feel closed only to let your past become your present. The negativity, anger and hatred you've developed has me exhausted. I recognize that we're only human nobody is perfect. You have force taught me how to stand up for myself and standing up to you and now I'm the bad guy picking at your flaws or s**t you don't do or do anymore, I say n pick at them cause you aren't the same. We were supposed to be a team now we're just rivals trying to have reason for everything, I recognize my mistakes n own up to them so you can rub it in more n bring me down further. Acting like I don't care isn't me so when I stop showing you I'm the victim. My mother has taught me to be the better person but all the negative I hold inside explodes on you. I've never laid a hand on you but you think it is okay to hit n threat me knowing that I can be just like you but 10 fold worse of an animal. I'm talking on my perspective my mentally n my reason to let out towards this song like it or not that's how it made me feel. Read more →

There is nothing constant in this world except change. Love can fade. The one who always loves and protects you might be the one who will hate and hurt you. The person who looks up on you might be the person who will look down on you in the future. Read more →
Prince – Empty Room

Meaning added by Ella-Anne
The meaning behind this song is unimportant at this late date, because the artist who wrote it is no longer with us; however, it just might be about a person who keeps waking up alone in a place that is too big, too silent, and too white, and eventually realizes it of little significance to be at the top, if there is no one else there but for an echo. Every time I hear this song, and there are several versions, I think of vanilla, and how it represents the shades of loneliness, which just might be the reason this entertainer exited the stage leaving behind a big house full of empty rooms. But really, it might be as this entertainer once sang, 'Just My Imagination', and he might have been extremely happy with his house of many rooms and memories of past loves. Who really knows?

This song had inspired me a lot. I just can't deny the fact that if I heard this song, I feel that I'm in heaven. I feel so comfortable. It feels like I'm in a middle of a paradise with bunch of flowers and butterflies for in the first place this song is our theme song eversince during our high school years. Our relationship have been through difficulties. We've been facing and walking through rocky roads, we experienced being far apart for how many years before we get this what we called "pleasure", in the sense that, our both parents accepted the reality. I even not forgot the things we used to do during our high school years. And now that we are together again for a second chance, we will continue what we have started, enjoy and cherish every moment that we miss to do when we are apart. I do love him so much. This song reminds me all the good things we have. And of course, for our wedding someday I will not forget this song. It would be my background for my wedding march. On this day. I promise forever. On this day. I surrender my heart. Here we stand like I planned. Please say you'll always look at me this way. Like on this day! Read more →

The inconstancy of friends and friendship. We are motivated by different things - and friends are no less different. But when these actions disagree with your own, you try to hang on as a friend, even knowing what they are doing is foolish - paper wings. In the end, we see that person change, and we (in our role as friend) cannot bear seeing this torment to keep happening - train leaving, it's not waiting for you; neither am I. Read more →

I have a son with mental illness and to me this song sums up what it does to a family. So to me this would be sung from the perspective of my son. He knows he does wrong. He is constantly apologizing. We go through hell. He knows he IS unsteady but he also knows he needs us. We do feel alone because his issues make friendships hard and they affect the relationship between me and my husband. I know there are other meanings but this is what it means to me and it breaks my heart. Whenever I am so mad at him for the things he does I think of him begging for us to not let (him) go. Making it more sad is the progression of time with it starting out calling the parents mama/daddy and then mother/dad, showing nothing has changed over time. Read more →

This can be taken in many ways. I took it like this: The narrator does not know what he is in life, hence the "I follow the road, blind, until the road is dead end," "Dead end" meaning he draws a blank to his ideas. He thinks some laws are just meant to "herd us over the cliff," or are harmful instead of helpful. He wants to know "what puzzle peice fell out" of him, meaning he wants to know where it all went wrong. He has friends that are "dead ends," and he is reluctant to join them in their mischief. He "aches for the touch" of them, meaning he wants them to be back to normal, away from trouble. He slowly realizes that he is just like them, a dead end, becuase of a "look in your eyes." It is unclear who this "your" is, possibly one of the friends, or a girlfriend, as he says "hold me real close then do it again," meaning they might have had sex. He states that he is becoming a dead end in the following line: "I can tell, by that look in your eyes. We're the same, my dead end friends and I." He then starts accepting the fact that he has become a dead end when he states: "We drive all alone at night, A never ending begin. Sweet as a curse just out of reach, Awakens the dead end part of me and oh, No more wandering. Just me and my dead end friends again." He knows that he has become a dead end and accepts it. He knows he WANTS to be a dead end when he says "No more wandering." He has accepted it and loves being with his friends again, even if they break some laws doing it. In all, this song is about a man who wants to find out who he really is. He finally finds it when he joins his friends in mischief. Read more →

My favorite song by Turisas, and one of my favorites of all time. It may be sometimes overlooked because of its length, but it deserves as much recognition as possible, The song tells the story of the fall of the Byzantine Empire, and expands upon this to work on the definition of history itself. The stars and moon, feared by the singer, are common Islamic symbols, and refer to the overthrow of the Byzantine Empire by the nascent Ottoman Empire, a "new power on the rise." The "walls" referred to as falling are the Theodosian Walls, which protected Constantinople for 1000 years before falling to the Ottomans. Personally, my favorite lyric in this song is "As long as you spend / There is more for you to lend / Someone always saves us in the end." This represents to me the fiscal disaster that the Empire became during the last few emperors after the Sack of Constantinople in 1204, and the apathy that they sank into. As a student of history, this apathy is familiar as that of the Western Roman Empire, Venice, and numerous other once-great powers that were either abandoned by their allies or simply pummeled to a pulp, and at the end simply resigned themselves to their fate. Other lyrics throughout the song express disbelief at the fact that the Empire has fallen, and that their time "ended so fast"--in fact, the Ultimus Romanorum was the last vestige of one of the longest-lived empires in history, and its fall showed that everything must end. The final choruses, soaring and majestic, are incredibly powerful as the last gasp of a dying empire, and the silence that follows them carries enormous symbolism. The End of an Empire is a tragic, majestic thing, and I think Turisas has done an amazing job conveying this in their song. Read more →

This song talks about what a woman is feeling when she's too deeply in love with someone ("Je m'abîme d'être moi-même - "I damage myself to be myself"). She wants to have a new start before the wind tears her and her feelings apart, not wanting to show how she suffers. She wants to leave the world she's living in to reach a better place, knowing what the others literally see in her eyes. In the 2 verses, Mylene sings it all, and the very dynamic chorus is very interesting too. In my opinion, this song is one of her musically best successes, along with "Stolen Car" and "City of Love".
