ears - FTW

you're ears in your headphones, to drown out your mind

you're????

Woah. I love it.

That's either a very interesting metaphor or a very common typo. Smiler

(edit) I meant typo on their part, not your part.

You're actually makes a bit more sense than 'your' now that I think about it.

"your ears in your headphones to drown out your mind" is a sentence fragment, whereas with 'you're' it becomes a complete sentence, but since its a song, it's a phrase.

Why am I talking about grammar? It's Regina.

Her favorite 'colors was pink and green'

and

'no one laughs at God when their doctor calls'

and etc etc it's art.

*off soap box* lol

But "You're [obviously meaning 'you are'] ears in your headphones" makes some sense... All you are at that moment is a listener.

haha. interesting stuff here, but somehow i feel like it might have been a typo. just because the whole difference between 'your' and 'you're' is obviously not conveyed in this medium, and we all know reg doesn't write down her music at all. and she's not really big on grammar rules.

speaking of which, i wonder if reg typed out these lyrics herself? because that would explain the typos. Wink

Did you notice that the Time is All Around lyrics are in the wrong order in the booklet?

It says,

"Time is all around, except inside my clock everybody's waiting for their lover to unlock" and THEN it says "You step on all my parts..."

And then there's the 'lead' vs. 'leaders' typo on Blue Lips. Oh well. It's like a scavenger hunt!

I think it's a statement of humility. I assume so anyway... maybe she just has low self-asteem? Smiler

Or she's just an artist who is doing something artsy fartsy by insisting her name be uncapitalized

Didn't she say somewhere that she feels her name on album covers is more like a band name and that she feels like her band would have lowercase letters... or something?
