Accidentally in Love Lyrics


So she said what's the problem baby
What's the problem I don't know
Well maybe I'm in love (love)
Think about it every time
I think about it
Can't stop thinking 'bout it

How much longer will it take to cure this
Just to cure it cause I can't ignore it if it's love (love)
Makes me want to turn around and face me but I don't know nothing 'bout love

Come on, come on
Turn a little faster
Come on, come on
The world will follow after
Come on, come on
'Cause everybody's after love

So I said I'm a snowball running
Running down into the spring that's coming all this love
Melting under blue skies
Belting out sunlight
Shimmering love

Well baby I surrender
To the strawberry ice cream
Never ever end of all this love
Well I didn't mean to do it
But there's no escaping your love

These lines of lightning
Mean we're never alone,
Never alone, no, no

Come on, Come on
Move a little closer
Come on, Come on
I want to hear you whisper
Come on, Come on
Settle down inside my love

Come on, come on
Jump a little higher
Come on, come on
If you feel a little lighter
Come on, come on
We were once
Upon a time in love

We're Accidentally in Love
Accidentally in love (x7)

Accidentally

I'm In Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
Accidentally [Repeat: x 7]

Come on, come on
Spin a little tighter
Come on, come on
And the world's a little brighter
Come on, come on
Just get yourself inside her

Love ...I'm in love

Accidentally in Love
  • This was written for the Shrek 2. It appears near the beginning of the movie.
  • Lead singer Adam Duritz (from Billboard): "I was really struggling with it. I generally don't write songs on demand, and I almost got to the point where I thought I wasn't going to do it. They just told me that the song had to be uplifting. They actually said, 'Don't write a song about Shrek. Write a song that's about you.' The funny thing is, the song ended up reflecting a lot of what was going on in my life at the time: falling in love with someone you're not supposed to fall in love with because it's inconvenient. My songs for Counting Crows are mature and generally don't get a chance to reach kids. To be part of something like that is pretty cool."
  • The girl in the video is Ashley Roberts from the Pussycat Dolls.
  • This was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song. It lost to "Al otro lado del río" from The Motorcycle Diaries.

    Land of Opportunity Lyrics


    I'm sailing away, to a Land of Opportunity.
    The sun will shine, and birds will sing there everyday
    I'm sailing away, and I hope that you remember me.
    It was fun, we had our run. Hip hip hooray!

    You said 'hello', I loved you so,
    Just like in a movie scene.
    I want you to know, I had to let go,
    I'm falling in love again.

    I'm running away, to a place where you won't bother me.
    We won't talk for a while, we'll be okay.
    And I'm changing my name to a word that's really hard to say.
    It's no one's fault, I'm just too young, and you're insane.

    I wasted my time, I missed all the signs,
    And it ruined my holiday.
    I want you to know, I had to let go,
    I'm falling in love again

    I just gotta believe there's something better.
    I just gotta believe there's something more than you and me.
    I've just gotta believe, I've just gotta believe.

    You said 'hello', I loved you so,
    I felt like a kid again.
    I want you to know, I had to let go
    I'm falling in love again.

    I just gotta believe there's something better.
    I just gotta believe there's something more than you and me.
    I've just gotta believe, I've just gotta believe.

    I'm sailing away to a Land of Opportunity.

    Babylon Lyrics


    Friday night I'm going nowhere
    All the lights are changing green to red
    Turning over TV stations
    Situations running through my head
    Looking back through time
    You know it's clear that I've been blind, I've been a fool
    To open up my heart to all that jealousy,
    That bitterness, that ridicule

    Saturday I'm running wild
    And all the lights are changing red to green
    Moving through the crowds I'm pushing
    Chemicals are rushing in my bloodstream

    Only wish that you were here
    You know I'm seeing it so clear
    I've been afraid
    To show you how I really feel
    Admit to some of those bad mistakes I've made

    And if you want it
    Come and get it
    Crying out loud
    The love that I was
    Giving you was
    Never in doubt
    Let go your heart
    Let go your head
    And feel it now
    Let go your heart
    Let go your head
    And feel it now

    Babylon, Babylon, Babylon

    Sunday all the lights of London shining,
    Sky is fading red to blue
    Kicking through the autumn leaves
    And wondering where it is you might be going to

    Turning back for home
    You know I'm feeling so alone
    I can't believe
    Climbing on the stair
    I turn around to see you smiling there
    In front of me

    And if you want it
    Come and get it
    Crying out loud
    The love that I was
    Giving you was
    Never in doubt

    Let go your heart
    Let go your head
    And feel it now
    Let go your heart
    Let go your head
    And feel it now

    Let go your heart
    Let go your head
    And feel it now
    Let go your heart
    Let go your head
    And feel it now

    Babylon
  • This is about a guy whose girlfriend who has left him. Once he realizes he has allowed fear to block his path to love, he decides he wants her back.
  • Gray is a singer/songwriter born in Manchester, England. He recorded his first album in 1993. After the failure of that and his two subsequent albums due to neglect from prior record labels, it was thanks to the tuned ear of Dave Matthews that Gray finally found success. Matthews signed Gray to his label, ATO Records and put out Gray's album White Ladder. This was the first single; it captured the attention of listeners and quickly spread like wildfire on radio stations worldwide. White Ladder gradually built up sales and in the UK it finally hit the #1 spot 2 years and 5 months after it was released, the second longest run to #1 by any album. Only T Rex's "My People Were Fair And Had sky In Their Hair" took longer, at nearly 4 years.
  • Babylon was a major city in Mesopotamia, and is located in what is now Iraq. The Hanging Gardens Of Babylon are one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world.

    I Really Want It Lyrics


    So tell me what are we living for?
    I say we chuck inhibitions
    And sell our souls to rock and roll
    I need to know what I'm missing

    So turn it up on the stereo
    Somebody light the ignition
    What the hell are you waiting for?
    It's time to make a decision

    (Nah-oooh)

    I'm feeling the world go round
    It's spinning me upside down
    I'm finally homeward bound
    I'm not giving up
    It's crawling under my skin
    And I don't care if I sin

    I Really Want It
    I really want it
    I really want it right now
    I really want it right now

    If there's a maker up above
    Then why is nobody listening
    You show me hate, and I'll show you love
    It's not about your religion

    We're always lookin' to someone else
    Just take a look in the mirror
    'Cause all you need is inside yourself
    It couldn't be any clearer

    (Nah-oooh)

    I'm feeling the world go round
    It's spinning me upside down
    I'm finally homeward bound
    I'm not giving up
    It's crawling under my skin
    And I don't care if I sin

    I really want it
    I really want it
    I really want it right now
    I really want it right now

    The more we love, the more we learn
    The more we love, the more we burn
    The more we love

    So tell me what are we livin' for
    I say we chuck inhibitions
    And sell our souls to rock n' roll
    I need to know what I'm missin'

    (Nah-oooh)

    I'm feeling the world go round
    It's spinning me upside down
    I'm finally homeward bound
    I'm not giving up
    It's crawling under my skin
    And I don't care if I sin

    I Really Want It
  • A Great Big World explained the background of this song to The Huffington Post : "We had recently quit our day jobs and were 'full-time' musicians and writers for the first time," they said. "We were stepping into a new role in life and really honing in on our dreams. This was us venting and sort of rebelling against the norm and what was expected of us. It was a way to tell ourselves that we could have it all if we wanted it."

    More Life In A Tramp's Vest Lyrics


    I get camping eyes in the final hour
    Last minute shoppers picking cauliflower
    The fuss they make, you'd swear they were buying a car

    They always moan, moan it's not so cheap
    Cheaper still, cheaper still down the street
    Lose my rag and tell them take your bag and shop down there

    Closing down, they're closing down another road
    One way, system steals the show
    Mac the knife swigs a can and sings the day away

    There's more life, more life, More Life In A Tramp's Vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest

    The flower man sits down in the street
    Surrounded by stock, he bought it back last week
    Bring back the ladies wearing lipstick on their teeth

    Make up, we make up a crappy joke
    Sit back, relax, you can have a smoke
    Mac the knife swigs a can and sings the day away

    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest

    I get camping eyes in the final hour
    Last minute shoppers picking cauliflower
    Mac the knife swigs a can and sings the day away

    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest

    If you're gay then you're gay
    Don't pretend that you're straight
    You can be who you are any day of the week
    You are unlike the others
    So strong and unique
    We're all with you

    If you're straight well that's great
    You can help procreate
    And make gay little babies
    For the whole human race
    Make a world we can live in
    Where the one who you love's not an issue

    'Cause we're all somewhere in the middle
    We're all just looking for love to change the world
    What if the world stops spinning tomorrow?
    We can't keep running away from who we are

    If you're gay then you're gay
    If you're straight well that's great
    If you fall in between that's the best way to be
    You've got so many options
    Every fish in the sea wants to kiss you

    'Cause we're all somewhere in the middle
    We're all just looking for love to change the world
    What if the world stops spinning tomorrow?
    We can't keep running away from who we are

    And we're all here in it together
    We're one step closer to breaking down the walls
    Everyone Is Gay

    Got no reason for coming to me
    And the rain running down
    There's no reason
    And the same voice coming to me like it's all slowin' down
    And believe me

    I was the one who let you know
    I was your sorry-ever-after '74, '75

    It's not easy
    Nothin' to say 'cause it's already said
    It's never easy
    When I look on in your eyes then I find that I'll do fine
    When I look on in your eyes then I'll do better

    I was the one who let you know
    I was your sorry-ever-after '74, '75
    Giving me more and I'll define
    'Cause you're really only after '74, '75

    Got no reason for coming to me
    And the rain running down
    There's no reason

  • The Connells were a rock group formed in Raleigh, North Carolina by David Connell (bass), his brother Mike Connell (guitar), Doug MacMillan (vocals) and John Shultz (drums), who was soon replaced by former Johnny Quest percussionist Peele Wimberley. In 1990 they added Steve Potak (keyboards) to their line up.
  • This acoustic ballad became an unexpected smash hit in Europe, topping the pop charts in many countries across the continent including Germany, Norway and Sweden. In the UK it became a hit in 1995 but it failed to chart in the US, though another track from their Ring album, "Slackjawed" reached #9 in the American Modern Rock Tracks chart.
  • In 1995, this was featured in the James Mangold film Heavy.

    "When we got home, I was talking to my parents and they were stressed out about something, and I wished they could've gotten to see what we saw in Yosemite," he continued. "That's what inspired this song. And also the fact that I had just gotten myself a Casio keyboard from the '80s, and also that we have a friend who we SWEAR is from another star system."

    Album: Weezer (The Blue Album)
    Released: 1994

    Undone - The Sweater Song Lyrics


    Undone - The Sweater Song
  • This song is about going insane in public. Here's some lyric analysis:

    "If you want to destroy my sweater, hold this thread as I walk away" - Keep doing what you're doing as I drift further into insanity.

    "Watch me unravel, I'll soon be naked" - Watch me drift into insanity, I'll soon be there, "naked" being full insanity.

    "Lying on the floor, I've come undone" - Lying on the floor, I've become mentally undone.
  • The opening dialogue is used to show how he is at a party, losing it, and no one notices or cares. The two verses are used to show how he's barely able to think and talk straight on his descent. The part about "I don't want to destroy your tank-top" is showing how other people are on the brink of insanity already, but he's not "pushing them off" like they are to him; then, "To see you lying there in your Superman skivvies" shows how everyone is on the brink of insanity to begin with, even more so then he was in his "sweater." The music helps illustrate the ever-maddening mind of the guy, as it starts out normal, then at the end is hard, dark, and mad-sounding, showing his slow descent into madness.
  • Many of the promotional singles sent to radio stations contained an edit that cut the guitar solo short. This was a distribution error, but it didn't have much effect because most radio stations played the album version.
  • This was the first Weezer song that Rivers Cuomo ever wrote, back in 1991. Three years later it was released as the band's first single.
  • Cuomo told Rolling Stone: "I was trying to write a Velvet Underground-type song because I was super into them, and I came up with that guitar riff. I just picked up that acoustic guitar and the first thing I played was that riff. And it just feels so classic to me, even now when the band starts to play it, it just takes over the energy in the room and you're just transported into the world of Weezer. It wasn't until years after I wrote it that I realized it's almost a complete rip-off of 'Sanitarium' by Metallica. It just perfectly encapsulates Weezer to me - you're trying to be cool like Velvet Underground but your metal roots just pump through unconsciously."
  • Cuomo told Billboard magazine: "It's been the case since our first album that people thought we were just being sarcastic and ironic. When I wrote 'The Sweater Song,' to me it was a very sad song about depression, and people heard it on the radio and thought it was hysterical."
  • This was used on the MTV series Undressed in the 1999 episode "If Words Could Kill #2."

  • This is a track from Transgender Dysphoria Blues, a concept album where the Against Me! frontwoman formerly known as Tom Gabel shares her rebirth as Laura Jane Grace. She told NME regarding the song: "I tried to write as if I was someone else on this track, about when you're starting to experiment with going out and presenting as female... But you have nowhere to f---ing go because you don't want to be seen out by friends."
  • The song was performed live by Against Me! For the first time at the Ogden Theatre, Denver on May 30, 2012. Grace had publicly come out as transgender earlier that month, announcing plans to transition to living as a woman.
  • An acoustic version of the song was released as a Double A-sided single with "F---MYLIFE666" on July 12, 2013. The artwork features Jame "Buffalo Bill" Gumb, a character from the 1991 movie The Silence of the Lambs, who was often wrongly described as transgender.

    Girl, understand why
    See it's Burning me to hold onto this
    I know this is something I gotta do
    But that don't mean I want to
    What I'm trying to say is that I-love-you I just
    I feel like this is coming to an end
    And its better for me to let it go now than hold on and hurt you
    I gotta let it burn

    It's gonna burn for me to say this
    But it's coming from my heart
    It's been a long time coming
    But we done been fell apart
    Really wanna work this out
    But I don't think ya gonna change ya
    I do but you don't
    Think it's best we go our separate ways
    Tell me why I should stay in this relationship
    When I'm hurting baby, I ain't happy baby
    Plus there's so many other things I gotta deal with
    I think that you should let it burn

    [Chorus]
    When your feeling ain't the same and your body don't want to
    But you know gotta let it go cause the party ain't jumpin' like it used to
    Even though this might bruise you
    Let it burn
    Let it burn
    Gotta let it burn

    Deep down you know it's best for yourself but you
    Hate the thought of her being with someone else
    But you know that it's over
    You know that it was through
    Let it burn
    Let it burn
    Gotta let it burn

    Sendin' pages I ain't supposed to
    Got somebody here but I want you
    Cause the feeling ain't the same find myself
    Callin' her your name
    Ladies tell me do you understand?
    Now all my fellas do you feel my pain?
    It's the way I feel
    I know I made a mistake
    Now it's too late
    I know she ain't coming back
    What I gotta do now
    To get my shorty back
    Oh oh oh oh
    Man I don't know what I'm gonna do
    Without my boo
    You've been gone for too long
    It's been fifty-eleven days, um-teen hours
    I'mma be burnin' till you return (let it burn)

    [Chorus]

    Deep down you know it's best for yourself but you
    Hate the thought of her being with someone else
    But you know that it's over
    You know that it was through
    Let it burn
    Let it burn
    Gotta let it burn

    I'm twisted cause one side of me is tellin' me that I need to move on
    On the other side I wanna break down and cry (oh)
    I'm twisted cause one side of me is tellin' me that I need to move on
    On the other side I wanna break down and cry (yeah)

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh (can you feel me burnin'?)
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh

    So many days, so many hours
    I'm still burnin' till you return

    [Chorus]

    Deep down you know it's best for yourself but you
    Hate the thought of her being with someone else
    But you know that it's over
    You know that it was through
    Let it burn
    Let it burn
    Gotta let it burn

    Burn
  • This song is about a guy who breaks his girlfriend's heart by breaking up with her and then later regrets it. He feels like he is burning without her but she isn't coming back.
  • This was the first instance of a four-letter title to succeed another four-letter title (Usher's "Yeah!") atop the Billboard Hot 100. With this transatlantic #1, Usher broke the record for most consecutive weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100. When "Burn" reached its seventh week in pole position, following directly on the heels of the 12-week chart-topper "Yeah!," Usher had spent 19 consecutive weeks on top. Prior to Usher's feat, the record was 16 weeks by Boyz II Men.
    Usher's record was overtaken by The Black Eyed Peas 26 week chart-topping run in 2009 with "Boom Boom Pow" and "I Gotta Feelin'."
  • Even though he cowrote this with Jermaine Dupri and Bryan Michael Cox, much speculation was made about "Burn"'s possible parallels to Usher's bust-up with TLC's Chilli.

    Drinking With The Jocks
  • This song finds Against Me's transgender frontwoman Laura Jane Grace detailing her attempts at camouflaging herself as a heterosexual man. She told NME: "Being in a punk band, more and more I'm in a situation where it's a bunch of dudes sitting around making homophobic comments, or being sexist or racist, and I would find myself laughing along and feeling disgusted with myself afterwards. I hope it makes people uncomfortable."
  • Grace expanded on the song's meaning to Spin magazine: "That song, in particular, was inspired by a night where I wasn't necessarily hanging out with punks," he said. "It's more self-criticism of knowing that, okay, I'm a transsexual, but no one else in this circle of people here knows that, and everyone else is laughing at faggots and everyone's being homophobic, and you're laughing along, too, and you're lying to yourself."

    "It didn't necessarily have anything to do with punk rock," he added," but at the same time, just being that I've played in a punk band for as long as I have, a lot of my experiences, of course, are going to be around that world or are related to that, and I have seen an unfortunate amount of, be it sexism or homophobia or whatever, in the punk-rock world, where people are like, 'I'm not really racist, but here's a racist joke' or 'I'm not really homophobic, but here's a homophobic joke.' And it's a shame to laugh along."

    Left Outside Alone Lyrics


    All my life I've been waiting
    For you to bring a fairy tale my way
    Been living in a fantasy without meaning
    It's not okay I don't feel safe

    Left broken empty in despair
    want to breath can't find air
    Thought you were sent from up above
    But you and me never had love
    So much more I have to say
    Help me find a way

    And I wonder if you know
    How it really feels
    To be Left Outside Alone
    When it's cold out here
    Well maybe you should know
    Just how it feels
    To be left outside alone
    To be left outside alone

    All my life I've been waiting
    For you to bring a fairytale my way
    Been living in a fantasy without meaning
    It's not okay I don't feel safe
    I need to pray

    Why do you play me like a game?
    Always someone else to blame
    Careless, helpless little man
    Someday you might understand
    There's not much more to say
    But I hope you find a way

    Still I wonder if you know
    How it really feels
    To be left outside alone
    When it's cold out here
    Well maybe you should know
    Just how it feels
    To be left outside alone
    To be left outside alone

    All my life I've been waiting
    For you to bring a fairytale my way
    Been living in a fantasy without meaning
    It's not okay I don't feel safe
    I need to pray

    And I wonder if you know
    How it really feels
    To be left outside alone
    When it's cold out here
    Well maybe you should know
    Just how it feels
    To be left outside alone
    To be left outside alone

    All my life I've been waiting
    For you to bring a fairytale my way
    Been living in a fantasy without meaning
    It's not okay I don't feel safe
    I need to pray

    Left Outside Alone
  • In an interview in The Radio Times, Anastacia said: "It was one of those songs, when you work so hard at loving someone and looking after them and being their friend, and you feel like you're giving 80% and they're giving 20. You want to put the shoe on the other foot and say, 'How does it feel that I didn't return your call?'"
  • Anastacia who was born Anastacia Newkirk in 1973 in New York was raised in Chicago. Diagnosed as suffering from the chronic intestinal illness Crohn's Disease at the age of 13, she overcame the symptoms to become a dancer, appearing on Club MTV and in the Salt-N-Pepa videos for "Everybody Get Up" and "Twist And Shout." After winning through to the final of the MTV talent contest show The Cut, she was signed by Daylight Records in March 1999. 18 months later she debuted in the UK charts with "I'm Outta Love." Also in 2000 her debut album Not That Kind, was a massive success. It reached the Top 10 in 8 European and Far East countries, selling over 2 million copies. This became her biggest UK hit and topped the American Hot Dance Singles Sales chart.
  • Anastacia revealed to The Mail on Sunday's You magazine in 2015 that the lyrics were inspired by her Ukrainian father walking out on her and the rest of the family when she was a child.
  • This topped the charts in a number of countries including Austria, Australia, Italy and Switzerland.

    My name is Bill, and I'm a head case

    Spend evenings taking hairpins from my hair

    I'm a boy, I'm a boy
    But my ma won't admit it
    I'm a boy, I'm a boy
    But if I say I am, I get it

    Put your frock on, Jean Marie
    Plait your hair, Felicity
    Paint your nails, little Sally Joy
    Put on this wig, little boy

    I'm a boy, I'm a boy
    But my ma won't admit it
    I'm a boy, I'm a boy
    But if I say I am, I get it

    Want to play cricket on the green
    Ride my bike across the street
    Cut myself and see my blood
    Want to come home all covered in mud

    I'm a boy, I'm a boy
    But my ma won't admit it
    I'm a boy. I'm a boy
    But if I say I am, I get it

    I'm A Boy
  • This is about a boy whose mother wants him to be a girl, while the boy longs to assert his real sexual identity. The controversial subject of cross-dressing was probably the reason why this failed to reach the American Top 100.
  • Pete Townshend wrote this for a Rock Opera he was composing called "Quads," which was about a future where parents could choose the sex of their children. That opera never happened. It is possible that Townshend had his old title in mind when a few years later he came up with the title for "Quadrophenia."
  • Roger Daltrey in Q magazine March 2008: "I always thought The Who went through a weird period after 'My Generation' (November 1965) that lasted until we did 'Magic Bus' (October 1968). I thought it all went a bit sloppy. But 'I'm A Boy' and 'Pictures Of Lily' were from that period when I'd been allowed back into the band (Daltrey had been asked to leave after beating up Keith Moon over his heavy use of amphetamines). My ego had been crushed. I was insecure and it showed in my voice. When I first heard those songs, I was like, 'Oi, what's this all about?' I didn't think I could find the right voice for them. You can hear it when you listen to them now, but my insecurity made those songs sound better. It was a happy accident."
  • Daltrey told Uncut magazine: "On 'I'm A Boy', I tried to sing it like a really, really young kid, like an eight-year-old. Not the voice of an eight-year-old but the sentiment – and I think that came across."

  • Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace wrote this song for her daughter, Evelyn, who was born in 2009. "It's about mortality," she told NME. "And realizing that all the things in your life are temporary."
  • Laura Jane Grace expanded on the song to Kerrang!: "When you have a kid, all the clichés are true. It changes you. Your perspective changes immediately, and time starts to move in a different way. You have these moments of realisation about who you are, where you are in your life, your age in comparison to your parents... It's a real head trip."

    "Having a kid of my own way, please see things from so many different angles, and going through having my daughter (Evelyn) while accepting gender dysphoria and dealing with it, it really take me a sense of my own mortality. It may be realise that death is real, and obviously all of us are going to confront it in our own time. It's part of life that I'm going to die someday and my daughter is going to die some day, and I hope I die before my daughter."
  • The black-and-white animated video starkly visualizes the song's themes. The clip was directed by the Verona, Italy-based animator Margherita Ballarin.

    Black Me Out
  • Laura Jane Grace told NME: "It's an angry song, 'Write me off, f---ing forget about me.' It's really just a 'f--- off' to negative people. The 'f--- you' attitude is what attracted me to punk when I was 13 years old."
  • Do you hear a Bruce Springsteen influence in this song? Bruce does. He told NPR: "'Black Me Out,' it's a fantastic song, you know. And so, any time where you feel you may have dropped a seed or two that someone picked up in any way is, it's just a pleasure. I mean it's like, 'Oh yeah, I did that little part of my work well,' in that this was an assistance and someone went and made something beautiful of their own or crazy of their own about it or whatever, however it comes out."
  • Grace explained the song's meaning to Spin magazine: "It's an angry song," he said, "and it's about feeling like you have certain relationships in your life where you have to fake the person that you are and be inauthentic and compromise yourself to people you work with or people you see out at a bar who corner you — who make you the kind of person that you aren't, really — and feeling like you're so angry that you just want to be like blacked out from someone's existence, like, 'F---ing forget about me, don't think about me anymore, I do not exist to you anymore.' That kind of feeling."

  • For the Plugged: In Concert MTV special, Springsteen broke from their acoustic format and played electric (not quite Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival, but a statement nonetheless). The E Street Band was on hiatus for this performance, which was released as an album and on video, with this as the first track. When the DVD was released, it contained some additional tracks.

    Heaven's Wall
  • This out and out Gospel rocker couched in Biblical language is most likely an outtake from Springsteen's proposed Gospel album, which he eventually scrapped for the more political Wrecking Ball. However, Springsteen felt it deserved a proper studio recording and gave the demo to producer Ron Aniello to play around. Aniello told Rolling Stone: "On 'Heaven's Wall' we took the basic track and jumped on there with overdubs. That's pretty much the original, vocal, drum and bass."
  • This was one of eight tracks on High Hopes that Tom Morello played on. The Rage Against The Machine guitarist also toured with the E Street Band during the Australia leg of Springsteen's Wrecking Ball World Tour. "He became a filter that I ran my music through," Springsteen told Rolling Stone. "He would send the songs back to me with a very current slant on them . . . He jolted those songs into the now. He's one of the few guitarists that creates a world by himself. It's like the Edge or Pete Townshend or Johnny Marr. The E Street Band is a big house, but when Tom is on stage he builds another room."
  • The New York Chamber Consort provided the orchestral instrumentation. The string section also played on three Wrecking Ball tracks as well as the High Hopes tunes "Dream Baby Dream" and "Just Like Fire Would."

    The Christmas Shoes Lyrics


    It was almost Christmas time, there I stood in another line
    Tryin' to buy that last gift or two, not really in the Christmas mood
    Standing right in front of me was a little boy waiting anxiously
    Pacing 'round like little boys do
    And in his hands he held a pair of shoes

    His clothes were worn and old, he was dirty from head to toe
    And when it came his time to pay
    I couldn't believe what I heard him say

    Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
    It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
    Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
    You see she's been sick for quite a while
    And I know these shoes would make her smile
    And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

    He counted pennies for what seemed like years
    Then the cashier said, "Son, there's not enough here"
    He searched his pockets frantically
    Then he turned and he looked at me
    He said Mama made Christmas good at our house
    Though most years she just did without
    Tell me Sir, what am I going to do,
    Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes

    So I laid the money down, I just had to help him out
    I'll never forget the look on his face when he said
    Mama's gonna look so great

    Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
    It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
    Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
    You see she's been sick for quite a while
    And I know these shoes would make her smile
    And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

    I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love
    As he thanked me and ran out
    I knew that God had sent that little boy
    To remind me just what Christmas is all about

    Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
    It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
    Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
    You see she's been sick for quite a while
    And I know these shoes would make her smile

    The Christmas Shoes
  • The song tells the story of a little boy with clothes that "were worn and old" buying shoes one Christmas Eve for his sick mother so she'll look good if she "meets Jesus tonight." Founding member Eddie Carswell told us, "it was inspired by this lady who'd actually been in that situation - not exactly the way the story goes, but a very similar story."
  • The song's storyline was inspired by a Christmas story that St. Louis-based radio personality DC Chymes found on the Internet. A NewSong fan, Chymes asked Eddie Carswell to write a song based on the narrative. Eddie and his then songwriting partner Leonard Ahlstrom liked the idea and worked at it on and off for a couple of years without completing the song. "We would read this story, and we knew something was there," Eddie recalled in the band's online biography, "so we kept stabbing at it, kept coming back to it."
  • When the band was recording Sheltering Tree, Eddie pitched the unfinished song, but the producer passed on the cut. With the album complete, NewSong had a meeting with people from their Benson Records label. The suggestion was made about adding a last minute Christmas song, so Eddie played a rough version of "The Christmas Shoes". Their enthusiastic response convinced the two writers to finish the song and the record label to add it. Within a mere week, the second verse and bridge were complete, and "The Christmas Shoes" was on the album as a bonus track.
  • Benson was a Christian record label but it had a mainstream affiliate. When they played the song for their mainstream side, they immediately saw its potential. Eddie recalled to us, "First thing you know it was out and we're getting these unbelievable reports all over the country about it and about how much everybody liked it and what was going on."
  • After NewSong recorded the track, Carswell told a writer friend of his, Donna VanLiere about it. She put together a novella based on the song , which was on the New York Times bestseller list in 2002. It was later made into a TV movie for CBS, called The Christmas Shoes starring Rob Lowe and Kimberley Williams, which was the second highest-rated TV movie of the 2002-2003 seasons. VanLiere has since penned several more books that were inspired by the song, which have spawned a couple more TV movies. Eddie told us that, "it's just been a crazy thing how God's blessed that little song. Just when you think it's all over, something else happens about it. So it's been an amazing song to be a part of."
  • The Christian music group NewSong was originally a 9-member church band for Morningside Baptist Church in Valdosta, Georgia, formed in 1983.
  • This hit the top of the Adult Contemporary chart in 3 weeks. A year later it was the title track of NewSong's holiday album.

    Avant Gardener Lyrics


    I sleep in late
    Another day
    Oh what a wonder
    Oh what a waste.
    It’s a Monday
    It’s so mundane
    What exciting things
    Will happen today?
    The yard is full of hard rubbish it’s a mess and
    I guess the neighbors must think we run a meth lab
    We should amend that
    I pull the sheets back
    It’s 40 degrees
    And i feel like I'm dying.
    Life’s getting hard in here
    So i do some gardening
    Anything to take my mind away from where it’s supposed to be.
    The nice lady next door talks of green beds
    And all the nice things that she wants to plant in them
    I wanna grow tomatoes on the front steps.
    Sunflowers, bean sprouts, sweet corn and radishes.
    I feel pro-active
    I pull out weeds
    All of a sudden
    I’m having trouble breathing in.
    I’m having trouble breathing in.
    I’m having trouble breathing in.
    I’m having trouble breathing in.

    My hands are shaky
    My knees are weak
    I can’t seem to stand
    On my own two feet
    I’m breathing but I'm wheezing
    Feel like I'm emphysemin’
    My throat feels like a funnel
    Filled with weet bix and kerosene and
    Oh no, next thing i know
    They call up triple o
    I’d rather die than owe the hospital
    Till I get old
    I get adrenalin
    Straight to the heart
    I feel like Uma Thurman
    Post-overdosing kick start
    Reminds me of the time
    When i was really sick and i
    Had too much psuedoefedryn and i
    Couldn’t sleep at night
    Halfway down high street, Andy looks ambivalent
    He’s probably wondering what i’m doing getting in an ambulance
    The paramedic thinks I'm clever cos i play guitar
    I think she’s clever cos she stops people dying
    Anaphylactic and super hypocondriactic
    Should’ve stayed in bed today
    I much prefer the mundane.
    I take a hit from
    An asthma puffer
    I do it wrong
    I was never good at smoking bongs.
    I’m not that good at breathing in.
    I’m not that good at breathing in.
    I’m not that good at breathing in.

    Avant Gardener
  • This song about a slacker who has a panic attack while cleaning up her yard was penned by Barnett on the beach. She told NME: "As a song I was really proud of it. But I thought everyone would hate it! Just because, aw, it's a really stupid song. It's so long and has no chorus and it's not catchy, you know?"
  • The lyrics of this half-spoken song describe an event that actually happened. Barnett was feeling ambitious one day and decided to do some gardening. It went horribly wrong when she started having trouble breathing and had a panic attack. An ambulance was called and she ended up in the hospital. She explained to Uncut magazine: "'Avant Gardener' is all true, apart from the adrenaline into the heart, like in Pulp Fiction. I just got adrenaline in the top of the thigh... But in the heart sounded so much more exciting."
  • Although this song recounts a real experience, Barnett does it with a sardonic wink, as it expresses that feeling you get when you finally find ambition and it fails miserably, making you wonder if you're better off staying in your comfort zone.
  • The music video quickly got over a million views on YouTube and led to an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The video is a non sequitur, with Barnett playing an awkward match of tennis with her band.

    Petals Lyrics


    I've often wondered if there's
    Ever been a perfect family
    I've always longed for undividedness
    And sought stability

    A flower taught me how to pray
    But as I grew, that flower changed
    She started failing in the wind
    Like golden Petals scattering

    And I miss you dandelion
    And even love you
    And I wish there was a way
    For me to trust you
    But it hurts me every time
    I try to touch you

    But I miss you dandelion
    And even love you

    I gravitated towards a patriarch
    So young predictably
    I was resigned to spend my life
    With a maze of misery

    A boy and a girl befriended me
    We're bonded through despondency
    I stayed so long but finally
    I fled to save my sanity

    And I miss you little sis and
    Little brother
    And I hope you realize
    I'll always love you
    (Always love you)
    And although you're struggling
    You will recover
    (We're gonna make it maybe)
    And I miss you little sis and
    Little brother

    So many I considered
    Closest to me
    Turned on a dime and sold me
    Out dutifully
    Although that knife was chipping
    Away at me
    They turned their eyes away and
    Went home to sleep
    (Sleep)
    (Sleep)
    (Sleep)

    And I missed a lot of life
    But I'll recover
    Though I know you really like
    To see me suffer
    Still I wish that you and I'd
    Forgive each other
    'Cause I miss you, Valentine
    And really loved you

    I really loved you
    (I guess I loved you)
    I tried so hard
    But you drove me away
    To preserve my sanity

    And I found the strength to break away
    (Do do do do do)
    (Do do do do do do do do)
    Fly

  • In this song, Mariah describes her relationship with Tommy Mottola, who was head of Sony Records, where she recorded. Carey was married to Mottola from 1993-1998. It's extremely emotional song, with very subdued vocals by Carey, who sings not only about her relationship with Mottola, but with his son and daughter as well.
  • Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis produced this track. The duo is known for their work on many of Janet Jackson's hits.
