One Slip Lyrics


A restless eye across a weary room
A glazed look and I was on the road to ruin
The music played and played as we whirled without end
No hint, no word her honour to defend

I will, I will she sighed to my request
And then she tossed her mane while my resolve was put to the test
Then drowned in desire, our souls on fire
I lead the way to the funeral pyre
And without a thought of the consequence
I gave in to my decadence

One Slip, and down the hole we fall
It seems to take no time at all
A momentary lapse of reason
That binds a life for life
A small regret, you won't forget,
There'll be no sleep in here tonight

Was it love, or was it the idea of being in love?
Or was it the hand of fate, that seemed to fit just like a glove?
The moment slipped by and soon the seeds were sown
The year grew late and neither one wanted to remain alone

One slip, and down the hole we fall
It seems to take no time at all
A momentary lapse of reason
That binds a life for life
A small regret, you will never forget,
There'll be no sleep in here tonight

One Slip
  • This is about falling in love and what is love, how one event can change your whole life. How one slip is all it takes. It is not ultimately about sex or love, but about unintended consequences. In the song, a man spots a woman across the room. Their eyes meet, and soon they are both giving in to sexual impulses. A pregnancy results, as is subtly implied with the words "soon the seeds were sewn" and "the year grew late," as well as by the sound effects at the beginning of the song which are a metaphor for sperm trying and then contacting the ovum.
  • The album title came from a line in this song: "A momentary lapse of reason." The "momentary lapse of reason" is a reckless sexual indulgence, without protection, which "binds a life to a life" via the unplanned child. We know that "neither one wanted to remain alone" as the pregnancy progressed, which implies that if the pregnancy was unplanned, at least the man involved was ready to take responsibility.
  • This was used as the B-side of "Learning To Fly." (thanks, Mike - Mountlake Terrace, Washington, for all above)
  • Dave Gilmour wrote this song with Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music. Working with different collaborators seemed to bring out different sides of Gilmour's personality, which was reflected in the lyrics.
  • This song opens with the sound of the alarm on Dave Gimour's houseboat studio. Appearing on the Floydian Slip TV show, sound engineer Andy Jackson explained that the alarms were triggered by him entering an incorrect code into the security system. (thanks, Ryan - Largo, FL)

    The Gallows Lyrics


    The Gallows
  • Former Felice Brothers drummer, Simon Felice, recorded his second solo album up in the Catskills Mountains at his friend David Baron's studio. He recalled to Uncut magazine. "Making Strangers was unique among the records I've worked on in that it was all done in one place: a good friend's studio at the top of a dead-end mountain road."

    Felice added to American Songwriter magazine: "I'd walk through the woods to the old house Jimi Hendrix occupied when he lived here in the late 60s, work out lyrics and melodies on those walks, commune with the ghosts."
  • This album closer was inspired by a woman who said she would hypnotize Felice for five dollars. He gave her the money and when he opened his eyes she'd gone. Later Felice asked who she was at the local gas station, and he was informed that she was a Acid casualty and he'd been robbed. Felice went straight to the studio and recorded this song, which he told American Songwriter, "was written in something close to a state of grace, which rarely happens for me."

    Lake Of Fire Lyrics


    Where do bad folks go when they die?
    They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
    They go to the Lake Of Fire and fry
    Won't see them again 'till the fourth of July

    I knew a lady who lived in Duluth
    She got bit by a dog with a rabid tooth
    She went to her grave a little too soon
    And she flew away howling at the yellow moon

    Where do bad folks go when they die?
    They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
    They go to the lake of fire and fry
    Won't see them again 'till the fourth of July

    Now the people cry and the people moan
    And they look for a dry place to call their home
    And try to find someplace to rest their bones
    While the angels and the devils fight to claim them for their own

    Where do bad folks go when they die?
    They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
    They go to the lake of fire and fry
    Won't see them again 'till the fourth of July

    Lake Of Fire
  • The "Lake Of Fire" is Hell. There is a lot of biblical imagery in the lyrics, and the song can be seen about how the Christian church uses the idea of hell to scare people into following their beliefs (Meat Puppets did a version of a song called "Jesus Don't Want Me For A Sunbeam" which is also very sarcastic).

    The song's writer, lead singer Curt Kirkwood, didn't set out to write religious commentary - his inspiration was far more jocose. He told us: "A lot of times I don't remember writing songs, I can't remember anything about like, how did I come up with that? But 'Lake of Fire,' we were all living together and everybody decided to go to a Halloween party, and they were all getting in costumes. And I thought, 'Man, this is one of the stupidest things - adults getting dressed up like we did when we were little kids.'

    I had actually got pretty wasted on something and told everybody, 'No, I'm not going.' And then once I was alone, I just started messing around. I wrote a couple of songs that night. I wrote 'Magic Toy Missing' and 'Lake of Fire,' maybe one more. But I was just really trying to make fun of my friends for going out to a Halloween party." (Here's our full interview with Curt Kirkwood of Meat Puppets .)
  • Nirvana performed this song on their 1993 MTV Unplugged appearance, which was also released as an album called MTV Unplugged in New York the next year. Along with "Lake Of Fire," Nirvana also played two other Meat Puppets songs: "Plateau" and "Oh, Me." They were joined by Curt and Cris Kirkwood of Meat Puppets for these three songs.

    Kurt Cobain was a huge Meat Puppets fan and would often mention them as an inspiration. "He was always in the moment," Curt Kirkwood told us about Cobain. "He wasn't very conversive, just really, really casual. I was pretty blown away by the whole thing, just on the level of how it was and wasn't, like my concept of it. It was a strange thing to be around, because there was so much attention at any point coming from every direction."

    Keep Watch Lyrics


    I ain't trying to be no D-boy
    I love music, I'm a b-boy
    Are you the undercover or the decoy
    I'm heavy with the D, Trouble T Roy
    A pit with no muzzle, about to bust your bubble like a tree lord
    Too much marijuana got me p-noid
    I'm killing instrumentals with that All So Simple Can It Be, boy
    Shout to Lil Cease, B.I.G., boy
    And Funk Doctor Spock, I mean Redman that's not Leonard Nimoy
    88 keys on the keyboard
    I'm down to catch wreck, take them first three letters out of record
    It's Meth, you heard it through the wire I could be more
    Or washed up like Sonny Black's body on the seashore
    That's a problem, I could be yours
    A monster without the mad scientist and Igor
    I've heard it before, a third of these boys
    Got murder raps and never even murdered before

    Keep Watch, lights out when the beat drop
    Keeping the streets locked
    I'm calling all G's from each block, from each block
    Keep watch, lame niggas out there can kick rocks
    Run these streets out here don't need cops
    I'm calling all G's from each block, from each block

    Codename Sensei, I live what my pen say
    Game hall of fame, flow is MJ
    Muy caliente, je m'apelle Rebel, capiche, comprende?
    Son I'm touching 'em up, trust I'm like
    Justin Tuck how they ducking the rush
    Trying to break bad, you catch a bad break
    Like I own a bake shop how I stack cakes
    Greatness was nothing, Deck the next Nike ad
    Wifey bad and my life got 'em slightly mad
    Cause I shine like chrome in July
    Soldier I opened your eyes, noticed the lies
    DEA say I'm drugging 'em
    I get you leaning hard, I get the fiends to nod, I mean they loving 'em
    All hail your highness, terrific win
    Put a so-called beast in his place, Pacific Rim

    Keep watch, lights out when the beat drop
    Keeping the streets locked
    I'm calling all G's from each block, from each block
    Keep watch, lame niggas out there can kick rocks
    Run these streets out here don't need cops
    I'm calling all G's from each block, from each block

    Foul ass police, crooked ass friends
    I don't give a fuck yo, the drama never ends
    I'm a project nigga, I don't care about the Benz
    Plus I had a lot of chicks, you can have those bitches
    But I murder your bloodclot if you touch my riches
    Yeah crazy ass skipper, I be in the slums, nigga
    Fuck where I come from I'm a quiet gangster nigga
    First I get you comfortable, then I start shanking niggas
    Park Hill code is don't violate the family
    Brother to brother it's no snakes in the amnesty
    I come through wilding on some Wu-Tang Can It Be
    Googly-eyed nigga, chop his face in the ministry
    Never scared to do the time, fuck the penitentiary
    Leave a bunch of dead niggas, don't forget to mention me
    The angel of rap, the un-ordinary light
    Already did what I was gonna do before you even got the mic

    We left a large solar cloud distinguished by size
    Interaction with the wise and civilized
    The mind caused matter to fall into a center
    A great deal of heat that'll radiate within ya
    From out of this collision
    The central cord became thick enough to trap its own light and bring vision
    Each drop full of Hip Hop energy
    Balanced on all sides such great symmetry
    The bars unlocked the power of the stars
    The mirror in the telescope pinpoint the Gods
    From a distance, acting as a guiding coach
    Analyze the board, universal approach
    Retune the soul to a certain pitch
    Changing the frequency frequently, hitting a certain switch
    The love is paramount, the connect is brotherly
    Respect for the intellect and broad discovery

    Keep watch, lights out when the beat drop
    Keeping the streets locked
    I'm calling all G's from each block, from each block
    Keep watch, lame niggas out there can kick rocks
    Run these streets out here don't need cops
    I'm calling all G's from each block, from each block

    Keep Watch
  • The first track lifted from A Better Tomorrow features guest R&B singer-songwriter Nathaniel on the hook who makes it clear the Wu is back. Longtime collaborator DJ Mathematics supplies the marching beat. Wu-Tang described the cut as "Classic 90s Mono Beat, infused with lyrical dart throwing content."
  • Method Man shouts out Kanye and Frankenstein's right-hand man, Igor, in the first verse, while also referencing Star Trek's Leonard Nimoy. Second in line is Inspectah Deck, who weaves some bi-lingual wordplays. Third up up is Cappadonna who offers up some gritty bars and GZA wrap things up with some astronomical-related couplets. Raekwon doesn't appear on the cut and tweeted "Keep dreaming" after the track appeared online, maybe as a nod to the title.

    That keeps us together, ow

    It's time to leave and get another quart
    Around the corner at the liquor store
    Haha, the cheapest stuff is all I need
    To get me back on my feet again

    Ooh, it's cold gin time again
    You know it'll always win

    Cold Gin
  • Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley wrote this song, which is about a guy who has only his gin to keep him warm. Frehley explained: "I wrote 'Cold Gin' in a New York subway, in my head, both lyrics and music. I had a spiral notebook with me. I never took a guitar lesson, nobody believes that. I didn't realize it was gonna become a Kiss classic."
  • Gene Simmons: "Ace [Frehley] brought in 'Cold Gin.' When we first heard it I remember being struck by that great opening guitar riff, which was the basis of the song. The problem we had with it was that after the verse and chorus, it didn't seem to go anywhere. It was an unfinished idea. I suggested a section in the middle of the song that became the riff part of the song. It changed the song from an 'A' voicing to a riff section in the key of 'G' and kept ascending up the scale until it finally wound up in an 'E.' Paul suggested a couple of arrangement modifications in the song, and presto, 'Cold Gin,' the complete song. I insisted that Ace should sing the song, but he refused and said that he preferred I sing it. The original version of the song as recorded on the first Kiss demo, changed very slightly through the years and was to remain a staple of our live concerts to this day." (thanks, Ken - LaSalle, Canada)
  • The irony of this song is that Gene Simmons, who sings it, doesn't drink and has never done drugs. Simmons claims that his only addiction is to sex, and that he's slept with over 4000 women. (thanks, Sid - Bryson City, NC)
  • This song was played at the funeral of the late guitarist (Dimebag) Darrell Abbott, as Kiss and Ace Frehley were his favorite band and guitarist. (thanks, Randy - Colerain Twp., OH)

    Really Be (Smokin N Drinkin) Lyrics


    I woke up this morning, I had a boner
    I went to sleep last night with no bitch, nigga, I was a loner
    I be going through shit, losin' bitches and homies
    If I don't make it with this rap shit, nigga, I might be homeless
    My moms don't got a job, my pop's checks ain't enough
    If ain't bringin' home that money, my whole family is fucked
    I swear I move like the mob, I'm watchin' movies too much
    If niggas wanted you dead, what would you suggest?
    They wonder why I do drugs and hang with thugs
    Since I made it the city hated, wait, where is the love?
    I ride around with my gun, this is not for fun
    I stay protected cause my homie just took one to the lung
    Had him on life support, where's the family support?
    He knew who shot him, but he ain't even show up in court
    Yeah, that's a real G, nigga, he on a kill spree, nigga
    The homie popped him so I hope he don't kill me, nigga

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    Now I'm ridin' through traffic with 2Pac blastin'
    With a bitch that's irritatin' from all these questions she askin'
    Like what bitches I fucked, when, how and where
    You ain't my main bitch so why the fuck do you care
    That's why bitches get fucked, then turn around and get left
    Somebody need to teach them less talk, more sex
    I'm pressed when I'm stressed, my granny tell me I'm blessed
    Well, why the fuck do Jesus Christ got me goin' through this shit?
    Everybody need favors, what happens if I go broke?
    Or say I ain't got it, then buy my lolo some new spokes
    Right up in your fake setup, fuck you up like some mace
    So fuck your handout, give a young nigga some space
    Give a nigga some Ace, give me a blunt that's laced
    Sprinkle some molly in it, watch me take this shit to my face
    The snitch is the shooter, they took time away from his case
    Holy shit, oh lawd, where is the world today?

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    I swear this industry shit, to me is one big ass lick
    I walk inside of a buildin', tell the A&R nigga strip
    Tell 'em I need all of my chips, my life been known Section 8
    I've been a welfare case, AFDC pump fake
    Meanwhile I'm grindin' cause drug money ain't like rap money
    Four white kilo snow bunny, equal one whole show, dummy
    I'm on this tour bus and I'm fucked up, I got a bad call, they killed Braze
    They killed Chad my big homie Pup
    Puppy eyes in my face, bruh, and I've really been drinkin'
    Why the fuck I've really been smokin'?
    What the fuck, I'm the sober one
    When I'm so stressed out I can't focus
    Hideout when I ride out, ski mask with the eyes out
    Speed past in the Cutlass-me and little Ocho
    And we young nigga hop out
    2 tears in a bucket, I feel like fuck it
    That's the price of fame, recognize my pain, that's all I know
    All alone, but I'm out here though
    Call my troops like vamonos
    I'm on this tour bus and I'm fucked up
    I got a bad call, and it's all bad
    Off OG with my OG and some OE, by the tall glass

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'

    Fathers are pleading, lovers are all alone

    To the senseless war, facing death in vain

    Tryin' to get home can't you see them tryin' to get home?
    Tryin' to get home they're tryin' to get home
    Seesaw fire on the battlefield
    Enough men have already been wounded or killed

    Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
    Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
    Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
    Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)

    Time hasn't healed the wound
    I wish I was in her shoes
    She's got the man I could never have
    My kisses were never missed
    How it hurts to be second best
    Oh let me tell you what I have to do

    I Pretend that you're loving me after dark
    Pretend that you're holding me next to your heart
    Pretend that you wanted me right from the start
    Oh I'm lost in my fantasy
    I pretend that your valentine is for me
    Pretend that I'm the only one that you need
    Pretend that we're making love in our dreams
    Oh I'm lost in my fantasy

    Memories that should have died
    Come alive when you walk on by
    I wish my eyes could turn away
    For this heart there is no escape
    When the truth is too hard to take
    Oh let me tell you what I have to do
    To get through the night

    I pretend that you're loving me after dark

    I Pretend
  • This song is a heartbreaker, with Carnes singing about how she lost her man, and now all she can do to comfort herself is to pretend they are still together. The song was written by Brian Fairweather and Martin Page, who had a group called Q-Feel. In our interview with Page , he explained that the song did not come from personal experience, since at the time he didn't put himself in his lyrics (this changed with his first solo single "In the House of Stone and Light").

    "'I Pretend' was a ripoff of me listening to the Pointer Sisters," he explained. "In fact, I took it to Planet Records where the Pointer Sisters were. There was an interest in it, but it didn't sell any seats."
  • Page and Fairweather got the attention of Kim Carnes' label boss Gary Gersh with their song "Dancing In Heaven (Orbital Be-Bop)," which got a lot of airplay on the Los Angeles radio station KROQ. When he heard their demo of "I Pretend," he played it over the phone for Carnes, who loved it. Gersh arranged for the trio to work together, which resulted in three songs from her Café Racers album: "You Make My Heart Beat Faster (And That's All That Matters)," "I Pretend," and "Invisible Hands." All three made the Hot 100. A few years later, Page offered Carnes another song he wrote: "These Dreams." She passed, and that one became a #1 hit for Heart.

    Strange Ways Lyrics


    Well, it's a strange way
    The way you look at me
    And it's a hard time
    Time you been givin' me
    Come on and open up
    Open up to me
    So you can realize
    That I could set you free

    Strange Ways, twisted days
    Strange ways, twisted days

    Well, it's a strange place
    That you've been livin' in
    And it's a strange line
    You've been deliverin'
    I think I like it
    But I'm not really sure
    Don't wanna to fight it
    Just wanna feel some more

    Strange ways, twisted days
    Strange ways, twisted days

    Strange ways, twisted days
    Strange ways, twisted days

    Strange Ways
  • Ace Frehley: "I love 'Strange Ways.' I just came up with the riff. It was one of those inspired, heavy tunes. I didn't feel comfortable as a singer at that point. Gene and Paul are very intimidating people. A lot of the time they tend to make people feel inadequate. It took me a while to get over my feeling of inadequacy. I didn't think I was as good a singer as I am. It took me a while to come out of my shell. Whenever I wrote songs in the early days, I'd always ask Peter (drummer Peter Criss) to sing so he would get some of the spotlight. I wasn't that secure with myself as a singer around Gene, Paul and Peter. They were all confident lead singers and even though I knew I could sing, they didn't encourage it, so, I just kind of laid back. 'Strange Ways' was never performed live by KISS. I had forgotten just how heavy it was. One of my favorite guitar solos is the one on 'Strange Ways'. It was done in one take. I just closed my eyes and that's what came out. Usually, I record in the control room, but for that solo I went out and stood in front of the amp and got that wild feedback bend at the beginning. It sounded like a dinosaur."
  • Peter Criss: "Ace wrote it and I sang it. It was really different for me, really heavy and new. I'd never sung anything like it, it wasn't exactly R&B. It was a great challenge to me and I loved it." (thanks, Ken - LaSalle, Canada, for above 2)

    Magnetic Lyrics


    No self-control
    A chain reaction as my body lets go
    A strange kind of light
    The tempo takes me and the circuit excites

    It's Magnetic
    The rhythm of a dangerous dance
    Let's dance in the static
    Suck you in twice as fast
    Magnetic
    The rhythm of a dangerous dance
    Let's dance in the static
    Suck you in, you'll never last

    Step into the light
    Make the spark ignite
    Step into the light tonight

    No place to hide
    I keep on runnin' but I'm falling behind
    A new kind of beat
    It takes your mind, then it takes your feet

    It's magnetic
    The rhythm of a dangerous dance
    Let's dance in the static
    Suck you in twice as fast
    Magnetic
    The rhythm of a dangerous dance
    Let's dance in the static
    Suck you in, you'll never last

    Are we making contact tonight?
    Don't break the circuit
    I'll be making contact tonight
    Don't break the circuit

    Magnetic
  • This song is about a groove so attractive, it pulls you toward it like a magnet. It's one of the few Earth, Wind & Fire songs the band had no part in writing. They were looking to shift toward a more modern, electronic sound at the time, and called in Martin Page to help. Page, who is from England, had written a song for his group Q-Feel called "Dancing In Heaven (Orbital Be-Bop)," which EW&F mainman Maurice White liked. White asked for something with a similar sound, and Page - who is a huge fan of the band - was happy to comply.

    "I quickly ran down the road to a little electrical shop and bought a Fostex 8-track," Page told us . "I tried to emulate the groove of 'Dancing in Heaven,' because I knew that appealed to him. And I wanted to create something that had a mysterious lyric to it, but sounded very contemporary. Earth, Wind & Fire had this magical sense of rhythmic vocals. You didn't have to know what they were singing about, you just had to feel where their syncopations happened."
  • In the late '70s, Earth, Wind & Fire made a successful transition into disco, but their journey into '80s electronica was poorly received. "Magnetic" was the biggest hit from the Electric Universe album, which was recorded while the band was falling apart. Maurice White went solo after it came out, releasing a self-titled album in 1985. The group got back together in 1987 with their album Touch the World.
  • If Earth, Wind & Fire were ever going to be video stars, this is the one that would have done it. The post-apocalyptic clip features futuristic gladiator battles that look like a cross between RoboCop and Tron. The band had been making videos since 1977, but never got much interest from MTV, which fancied themselves a rock network when they started in 1981 and gave almost no airplay to black artists until Michael Jackson broke through on the network. "Magnetic" was also ignored by MTV, although the clip has since gained a following on YouTube.

    Spend time takin' all you could get
    Givin' yourself was one thing you never could do

    You played with my heart, played with my head
    I got to laugh when I think of the things you said

    Ain't never gonna let you go

    Stole your love, I stole your love

    You never stop runnin' around
    You pick me up, then you could still put me down
    You were the girl that nobody could own
    Stay for a while, then you would leave me alone

    I'm somethin' different, ain't like the rest
    How does it feel to find out you're failin' your test

    I Stole Your Love
  • Paul Stanley: "'I Stole Your Love' came quickly. It was kind of a sister song to 'Love Gun,' so it came around the same time. Again, swagger and attitude. That song was influenced in some ways by the Deep Purple song 'Burn.' There's an old standard called 'Fascinating Rhythm' which is what 'Burn' is based on. The songs I was writing at the time were of a certain type. I was trying to get closer to the things I liked in British bands that were my influences. And then, interestingly, once you had KISS play it, the song took off in a different direction because of the perspective of the players in KISS. So, if I had done those songs a hundred percent my way, they would have sounded more similar to those influences. That's the beauty of being in a band, each person brings their own perspective and takes it some place you might not." (thanks, Ken - LaSalle, Canada)

    Will ya make it better, or just complain

    Mighty Mighty
  • With the chorus line, "We are people, of the mighty, mighty people of the sun," this is one of the more spiritual Earth, Wind & Fire songs. "There are certain aspects which have to be kept clean, things that relate directly to the Creator," Maurice White told Blues & Soul in 1975. "By adopting a totally positive approach to our life, we can reflect this in our music."

    Many of EW&F's most upbeat songs are also their most meaningful, the idea being that celebration through music can bring us to a higher power.
  • Maurice White wrote this song with his younger brother/bass player Verdine. The song, which was the lead single from the band's fifth album, became their biggest hit to this point.
  • According to Verdine White, many radio stations refused to play this song because they thought it was about black power.
  • The band recorded the Open Our Eyes album at Caribou Ranch Studios in Colorado. A big influence on their sound was Charles Stepney, who co-produced the band with Maurice White until Stepney's death in 1976.

    Regarding the recording of this song, Verdine White told us : "I remember we just got into a groove, man. We just got into it. You know what I mean? That was one of our favorite songs to record and play."

    Against The Wind Lyrics


    It seems like yesterday
    But it was long ago
    Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights
    There in the darkness with the radio playing low, and
    And the secrets that we shared
    The mountains that we moved
    Caught like a wildfire out of control
    'Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove
    And I remember what she said to me
    How she swore that it never would end
    I remember how she held me oh-so-tight
    Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

    Against The Wind
    We were runnin' against the wind
    We were young and strong, we were runnin' against the wind

    The years rolled slowly past
    And I found myself alone
    Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
    I found myself further and further from my home, and I
    Guess I lost my way
    There were oh-so-many roads
    I was living to run and running to live
    Never worried about paying or even how much I owed
    Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
    Breaking all of the rules that would bend
    I began to find myself searching
    Searching for shelter again and again

    Against the wind
    A little something against the wind
    I found myself seeking shelter against the wind

    Well those drifter's days are past me now
    I've got so much more to think about
    Deadlines and commitments
    What to leave in, what to leave out

    Against the wind
    I'm still runnin' against the wind
    I'm older now but still runnin' against the wind
    Well I'm older now and still runnin'
    Against the wind
    Against the wind
    Against the wind

    Still runnin' (against the wind)
    I'm still runnin' against the wind
    (Against the wind) I'm still runnin'
    (Against the wind)
    I'm still runnin' against the wind
    (Against the wind) still runnin'
    (Against the wind)runnin' against the wind, runnin' against the wind
    (Against the wind) see the young man run
    (Against the wind) watch the young man run
    (Against the wind) watch the young man runnin'
    (Against the wind) he'll be runnin' against the wind
    (Against the wind) let the cowboys ride
    (Against the wind) aah
    (Against the wind) let the cowboys ride
    (Against the wind) they'll be ridin' against the wind

    Against The Wind
  • Seger said of this song: "My old friend Glenn Frey of the Eagles had an idea that our guitarist Drew Abbott should play along with the piano solo. He and I then went out and did the background vocals together. The line 'Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then' bothered me for the longest time, but everyone I knew loved it so I left it in. It has since appeared in several hits by other artists, so I guess it's OK."

    Seger later clarified: "The only thing that bothered me about that phrase was the grammar. It sounded grammatically funny to me. I kept asking myself, 'Is that correct grammar?' I liked the line, and everybody I played it for – like Glenn and Don (Henley) – were saying, 'That's the best line in the song,' but I couldn't shake the feeling that it wasn't right. But I slowly came around. You have to understand that songwriters can't punctuate anything they write. I work in such a narrow medium that I tend to second-guess things like that. As a matter of fact, I've seen that line in a few other songs since I came up with it, so I guess it was okay after all."
  • Seger won the 1980 Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal Grammy award for this song.
  • The Highwaymen, a country supergroup consisting of Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, remade this song for their debut album. (thanks, Danny - Waterville, NY)

    If you got some room for a little regret,
    Let me know girl I've already left

    If you're feelin' what I'm feelin' let's mix it up,

    We ain't gotta make up just kiss me,
    We could straight up blame it on the whiskey,
    You ain't gotta wake up and miss me, no,
    I hope you get lonely tonight

    I don't care if you're spinnin' in the neon,
    Or burnin' up the sheets with my tee on,
    Either way the thought is turning me on,
    And I can't shake it girl I'm wide awake, so

    If you're feelin' what I'm feelin' let's mix it up,
    You got my number baby hit me up,
    If you need a little late night pick me up,
    I, hope you get lonely tonight,
    We ain't gotta make up just kiss me,
    We could straight up blame it on the whiskey,
    You ain't gotta wake up and miss me, no,

    She stood there bright as the sun
    On that California coast
    He was a Midwestern boy on his own
    She looked at him with those soft eyes
    So innocent and blue
    He knew right then he was too far from home
    He was too far from home
    She took his hand and she led him along that golden beach
    They watched the waves tumble over the sand
    They drove for miles and miles
    Up those twisting turning roads
    Higher and higher and higher they climbed

    And those Hollywood Nights
    In those Hollywood hills
    She was looking so right
    In her diamonds and frills
    Oh those big city nights
    In those high rolling hills
    Above all the lights
    She had all of her skills

    He'd headed west cause he felt that a change would do him good
    See some old friends, good for the soul
    She had been born with a face
    That would let her get her way
    He saw that face and he lost all control
    He had lost all control
    Night after night
    Day after day
    It went on and on
    Then came that morning he woke up alone
    He spent all night staring down at the lights on LA
    Wondering if he could ever go home

    And those Hollywood nights
    In those Hollywood hills
    She was looking so right
    It was giving him chills
    In those big city nights
    In those high rolling hills
    Above all the lights
    With a passion that kills

    In those Hollywood nights
    In those Hollywood hills
    She was looking so right
    In her diamonds and frills
    Oh those big city nights

  • Seger: "The chorus to this song came into my head one night in 1977 as I was driving through the Hollywood Hills. Our drummer, David Teegarden, played an entire set of drums as we recorded and overdubbed another entire set of drums playing a different pattern. In other words, there's two sets of everything: snare, kick-drum, hi-hat, etc. Billy Payne (of Little Feat) sat in with us for the first time and played the last two instruments, piano and organ. When he was done, he asked for a tape to listen to on the way home. he called me the next day while he had been listening, he looked down and found himself going 100 miles an hour on the freeway."

    After All Lyrics


    After All
  • The third single from Ed Bruce's You're Not Leaving Here Tonight album, this peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. Bruce wrote the song with his then wife and manager Patsy. The pair were frequent collaborators and are best known for penning Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson's hit single "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys."
  • The song finds the elderly narrator serenely reflecting back on a lifelong marriage:

    "After all these years after all the joys and tears
    After all is said and done after most of everything we knew is gone
    I still love you."

    Unlike the narrator and his wife, the Bruces' marriage didn't make the distance. After 22 years together, Ed filed for divorce on July 27, 1987 charging Patsy with "cruel and inhuman treatment."
  • On January 28, 2004 Bruce sung "After All" and "The Last Cowboy Song" on the CBS variety show Hee Haw.
  • Johnny Cash recorded the song and his version can be found on his 2014 posthumous album Out Among the Stars, which was produced by his son John Carter Cash.

    Carter Cash told Billboard magazine: "This was a very different song for Johnny Cash to sing. The melody is pretty unique for him, I can't think of any other song of this type he ever recorded, the range is so extensive. He always had a way to know if a song could work, he had a way to make it his own."

    Come on in
    I've gotta tell you what a state I'm in
    I've gotta tell you in my loudest tones

    I miss you so
    And I'm tired
    I should not have let you go

    And I you hope 'cause I'm

    So anxious so meet me at eleven-thirty
    I love the way your talkin' dirty said I'm
    So anxious girl could you quit this stallin'
    You know I'm a sexaholic said I'm

    So anxious so meet me at eleven-thirty
    I love the way your talkin' dirty said I'm
    So anxious girl could you quit this stallin'
    You know I'm a sexaholic said I'm

    Said as soon as you hit the door
    I'mma pull you down on the floor
    And before we get to touch the bed
    Baby back up every word you said
    And before we, got to hit the lights
    And before we start the candlelight
    Baby girl I want to bump and grind
    This is something that is on my mind

    So anxious so meet me at eleven-thirty
    I love the way your talkin' dirty said I'm
    So anxious girl could you quit this stallin'
    You know I'm a sexaholic said I'm

    So anxious so meet me at eleven-thirty
    I love the way your talkin' dirty said I'm
    So anxious

    So Anxious
  • This Static Major penned song finds Ginuwine anxiously waiting on his lover all night to come home and have sex with him.
  • The third single released from the singer's 100% Ginuwine album, it became his most successful song to that date, peaking at #16 on the Hot 100 and helping the LP reach double platinum status. However Ginuwine admitted to Billboard magazine that he initially was not in favour of its release. "I was really scared of it because it was so slow and I was singing really hard and really high. I was nervous about how it would be received by the public," he said.

    "But my management at the time, Jomo Hankerson, he actually picked that one and said 'This is the one to go with,'" Ginuwine added. "We went with it and thank God he was right."
  • The music video was directed by Chris Robinson and featured an appearance by rapper Solé. Ginuwine began dating Solé soon after the promo was filmed and they wed in 2003.

    See You Soon Lyrics


    See you lost your trust and you never should have, you never should have.
    Don't break your back if you ever see this.
    Don't answer that.
    In a bullet proof vest with the windows all closed
    I'll be doing my best
    I'll See You Soon.
    In a telescope lens when all you want is friends
    I'll see you soon.

    See, they came for you they came snapping at your heels, they came snapping at your heels.
    Don't break your back if you ever see this.
    Don't answer that.
    In a bullet proof vest with the windows all closed
    I'll be doing my best
    I'll see you soon.
    In a telescope lens when all you want is friends
    I'll see you soon.

    You lost your trust
    You lost your trust
    No don't lose your trust
    No don't lose your trust

    See You Soon
  • This is about insecurity. The line, "So you lost your trust and you never should have" states that the person was so insecure that there was no reason to lose trust. Then he says, "Don't break your back if you ever hear this, don't answer that," meaning not to fret - time will do it's thing if you just think and listen. The line, "In a bulletproof vest, with the windows all closed, I'll be doing my best and I'll see you soon" means that the person protects themselves, not letting anyone in. The other person will be doing their best, seeing them soon when the insecure person has gained trust. (thanks, David - Huntington Beach, CA)

    [Ginuwine]

    Final Warning/Interlude
  • This duet with Aaliyah was the only track on 100% Ginuwine with a featured guest. Ginuwine told Billboard magazine: "I was never really into doing features, but if I was going to do one it was going to be with her. We had the same management team; were under the same umbrella."

    "I remember that day we were just having fun and playing around like we usually would do," he continued. "We did the song in like an hour, but we kept going all day because we were just talking and joking. I'll never forget that day. I'm really lucky that I got to have her on my CD and that that will live on forever. I'll always be grateful for that."

    "I actually wrote 'Miss You' for her back then," Ginuwine added. "It didn't get put on her next album, but after she passed it got released on the compilation album [I Care 4 U]. I was really happy about that."

    Why Don't We Get Drunk
  • Jimmy: "This song was written as a piece of total satire when I did my first album in Nashville. I was hearing a lot of suggestive country songs - in particular, Conway Twitty's "Lets Go All The Way." I figured I would write a song that would leave no doubt in anybody's mind. I thought back to a late-night in an Atlanta diner where I was eating and watched this out-of-focus business man trying to pick up a hooker. That's all the inspiration I needed." (thanks, Ken - LaSalle, Canada)

    Two Sides to a Story Lyrics


    I ran into some girls who knew you today
    They tried to tell me some things
    But I know there's always Two Sides to a Story

    I don't give a damn about what others say
    They just can't see you gettin' close to me
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story

    I don't give a damn about what others say
    They just don't want you gettin' close to me (No, no, no)
    I don't really care about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story (First verse)

    I don't understand why it's happening
    And I'm tryin' to ignore the things I hear
    People saying things all up in my ear
    And I'm wondering is it the truth I fear

    You don't need to explain, 'cause baby, I don't care
    Whatever happened then was then, then was then
    All that really matters, girl, that it's you and me
    Whatever was then is gone, we can't change it now

    I don't give a damn about what others say (Oh)
    They just can't see you gettin' close to me (Close to me, yeah)
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story (There's always two sides to a
    story, mmm, hmm)

    I don't give a damn about what others say (Mmm, no)
    They just don't want you gettin' close to me (They don't want you
    gettin' close to me, no)
    I don't really care about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story (Mmm, hmm)

    Met some others girls and they started tellin' me
    How you used to carry on back then with them
    And they tried to tell me things like you ain't changed one bit
    But they ain't there to see the things I see

    You don't need to explain, I just want you to know
    It starts from now and not back then, then was then
    All that really matters, girl, that it's you and me
    Whatever was did, it's gone, it's history

    I don't give a damn about what others say (I don't give a damn)
    They just can't see you gettin' close to me (See you gettin' close)
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story (There's always two sides to a
    story)

    I don't give a damn about what others say (Yes, it is)
    They just don't want you gettin' close to me (Want you gettin' close)
    I don't really care about what happened before me (Baby, can you tell me
    one thing)
    There's always two sides to a story (Can we go)

    On and on and on and on and on and on and on
    Can we go on and on and on and on and on and on
    Can we go on and on and on and on and on and on
    Can we go on and on and on and on and on and on

    I don't give a damn about what others say (No)
    They just can't see you gettin' close to me
    (No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no)
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me (Mmm, hmm)
    There's always two sides to a story (There's always two sides)

    I don't give a damn about what others say (There's always two sides)
    They just don't want you gettin' close to me (No, no, no, no, no)
    I don't really care about what happened before me (I don't give a damn)
    There's always two sides to a story ('Cause there's always two sides to
    a story, baby)

    I don't give a damn about what others say
    (Oh...they don't want you getting close to me)
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me
    (No, I don't give a damn what happened before me)

    I don't give a damn about what others say
    (No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no)
    I don't really care about what happened before me (I don't give a damn,
    no, no, no)
    There's always two sides to a story (All I know is that I love you,
    darlin')

    I don't give a damn about what others say (Mmm)
    They just can't see you gettin' close to me (All I know is that I need
    you)
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story (Oh, I don't care about what
    happened before me, baby)

    I don't give a damn about what others say
    (They're just jealous of you and they want your place)
    I don't really care about what happened before me (No, no)
    There's always two sides to a story (No, no)

    Two Sides to a Story
  • Much of 100% Ginuwine deals with the various dramas that can challenge a relationship. Billboard magazine asked the singer what was going on in his personal life at the time? He replied: "I was dating a lot of different girls [laughs]! You know, when you have a platform like we have you express those life situations and put them into song form for other people to appreciate. You become an open book when you're a writer and a singer because where else are you going to grab from? So everything on 100% is pretty much what I was going through at the time or wanted to go through."

    He continued: "'Two Sides to a Story,' for example, was a song I wrote because there were some girls saying this and that and the other thing about a girl I was seeing."
