  1. okey, I'm kinda obsessed with this song right now! these are the lyrics: I am Down the road and up the hill I wait for you still Wires around my fingers Potentially lovely Perpetually human Suspended and open Open Open I am Through the woods and past the trains I wait here in vain Scrubbing out the stains again Potentially lovely Perpetually human Suspended and open Open Open In a night, the snow starts falling And everybody stares Through their windows at the streetlights Too beautiful to see I (ough) am (ough) In a room I've built myself (ough) Four (ough) straight walls (ough) One floor (ough) One ceiling And day after day, I wake up feeling day after day, I wake up feeling feeling... Potentially lovely Perpetually human Suspended and open Open Open Open Open up Your eyes And then... mmm, lalala lalala, mmm... Okay, this song is beautiful, any ideas of the meaning?

  8. Argentina Spektor

    this thread is kind of old, but I have to say that I'm impressed! there are some argentinian fans around here I'm still dreaming with the day in which Regina comes to Argentina to give a concert... Note: My english sucks ... oh wait, I've already said that sometime
  9. If anyone needs sheet music...

    Hey I've transcribed Cinderella. If you want the sheet music, I've uploaded it in regispek And i'm finishing with back of a truck (hooray )
  10. Open (Down the road & up the hill)

    yes, I've read those interpretations too... I think this song is about Jesus Christ. He is potentially lovely he is perpetually human for the "suspended and open" part, made me think of the crucifixion. and "4 straight walls, one floor, one ceiling" part made me think of the holy sepulchre... however, some parts of the lyrics don't make sense in this context... (for example, the trains part )

  15. December

    I think "december" is a song about a couple. but not any ordinary couple. they are living in the pre-second world war years, (in Germany maybe?) I think she is a Jew, and he is not, but that doesn't matter, because they are living in peace... until now... then, the second world war begins, and that's when she says "Rumours have started that you are in love again, rumours that are completely unsubstantiated"... He is "in love" with the nazi ideology, He is called to enlist in the german army forces. she now sees He has changed, he's not the same guy she used to love. finally, the time has come, and the nazis are sending all the jews to the concentration camps. The man who used to be her boyfriend comes to her house with all the "crew", ingoring that She used to be his girlfriend. She desesperately says to him "can't you see all this love?". And referrencing to the nacional socialism, she says "come on and say you're sorry for all the trouble that you caused", she knows that jews are being discriminated, and death is around the corner... the line "we're not evacuating this house" is pretty obvious in this context, the girl and her family don't want to leave... She doesn't believe in him anymore now he is with the "wrecking crew". I wonder what appened next, I'm sure the nazis send them to the concentration camp, and the poor girl and her family died... What a sad sad sad song... That guy was really mean with his girlfriend
  16. Samson

    I always tought that all the samson thing is a metaphor of a love relationship. The guy (samson) will let his defenses down ("I cut his hair... and he told me that I've done alright...)"), just to love the girl. all the other things are easily applicable to this context: "you are my sweetest downfall": He is irresistible, very lovely, etc- "and the history books forget about us and the bible didn't mention us not even once": It isn't necessary for the couple that other persons know they are in love. It's just him and her, don't matter what others may think... "we couln't bring the columns down": in the myth, samson dies crushed by the columns. in this verse, she is implying that the guy is still open to her, "his hair hasn't grow" lol, reading it now it doesn't make so much sense :s
  17. Hotel Song/Come Into My World

    this song always confuses me I think there are 3 POVs in this song: a teen boy a hooker the boy's girlfriend these are the boy's lines: I have dreams of Orca whales and owls But I wake up in fear You will never be my fool Will never be my fool Floaters in my eyes Wake up in a hotel room Cigarettes and lies I am a child, it's too soon I wade downstairs The porter smiles to me A smile I've bought With a couple of gold coins A sign that I've been caught These are the hooker lines: Come in, come in Come into my world I've got to show, show, show you Come into my bed I've got to know, know, know you You will never be my dear Will never be my dear, dear friend and these are the girlfriend lines: A little bag of cocaine A little bag of cocaine So who's the girl wearing my dress? I figured out her number It's on a paper napkin But I don't know her address So, the main idea is: the boy and his gf are staying in a hotel. They are too young and never have spoken about sex. Maybe he tries to convince her to have sex with him, and she doesn't want to, so he leaves in an angry mood. Then, the boy calls a hooker. The hooker comes, and that's when the song begins. He has sex with the hooker, have fun with cocaine, etc., and when they finish, she says "you will never be my friend", implying that hookers never have sentimental relationships. And then she leaves wearing a dress of the girlfriend (I wonder why, lol). He feels guilty then (he realizes he is still a child, has dreams of orcas and owls... It was so soon...). So he tries to leave the hotel, and meets the porter. he tries to bribe him to keep quiet. in the meantime, the girlfriend come back to the hotel and she meets with the hooker, who is leaving, and is wearing her dress. Quickly she goes upstairs and confronts the boy. They go back to the room, and she found the cocaine, the phone number and realizes he had sex with a hooker. Angrily she realizes the girl with her dress was, in fact, the hooker, so maybe she wants to punch her in the face... but she doesn't know her adress! I assume the girlfriend and the boy broke up after this incident I'm Sorry, I got carried away... I can't control my creativity! Lol
  18. B.Y.O.S.

    this is totally off, but I think this song is from the POV of someone in the World War I. Mata hari was killed in WWI... and this person says he's got an "invitation". "the invitation" means that he's called for doing the work of "shovel up the mess". I think "the mess" means all the dead bodies of the people who died in the war, that are scattered around the city. His work is "to shovel up the mess", and maybe clean the city of all the dead bodies. then he says he dug a hole, and dropped some dead animals too, and even his dead grandma... Lol, I know this is totally off... but I think this song has some serious meaning, despite the "happy feel" towards the end...
