Thoughts on Song Meanings

Stop The Clocks cover Stop The Clocks by L.A.

Every time I listen to it I understand it says "you CAN stop the clocks". So for me, I believe this song is about being with someone who absentmindedly stops the time for both of you. Someone with whom you are so at ease with time stops, no problems bother you, there is no sadness to feel, only each other's presence and love. You get lost in time with this person, and everything just feels so right, and magical, and true. And you both don't realize it at the moment, but now that you look back, now that time has gone by, you can tell that when you where together time certainly stopped, for you and her.

Stars cover Stars by Dan Fogelberg

The protagonist’s relationship is over and he can’t accept it. He continually calls his former love but she won’t pick up. He shows up to her house and looks at her through a window, wishing that he was her mirror so she would look at him and catch her fondest gazes again.(restraining order much?) I have loved this song for 40 years but never understood the mirror part. I always thought THE WOMAN was dreaming that the looking glass was him, which didn’t fit the narrative. I just realized, HE’S the one wishing the mirror was him...not her. Now this verse fits the rest of the song. If you’ve ever had your heartbroken, you can relate. Far too many stars have fell on me.

Hearing Damage cover Hearing Damage by Thom Yorke

The song meaning may be something completely different but from someone who suffers from schizophrenia ,i feel it is about just that.

Until Then... cover Until Then... by Sully Erna

From an interview with Sully Erna ... Lyrically it became a tribute to the U.S. Armed Forces. For the longest time Godsmack has been supportive of the troops and paid our respects to the people that fight for this country and allow us the freedom that we have. I thought it was important for me to give back and acknowledge what they do at work every day and how hard it must be to leave their families and friends not knowing if they’ll be coming back.

Farewell cover Farewell by UNKLE ft. Eska, Keaton Henson, Elliott Power, YSÉE , Steven Young, Liela Moss, Dhani Harrison, Mink

@sherifholly I'll give it a shot. I envision this being the words of an infant that has just been born and only knows the comfort of a mother's love. A love that is unconditional and never-ending regardless of the wrongdoings of a child. Seeing, walking and runnings could represent the stages of life from baby to child to teenager. Another way to say "crawl, walk, run". In the end, this is open for interpretation, but I do feel a deep love in the story.

Don't Start Now cover Don't Start Now by Dua Lipa

Miss Dua is talking about a guy who she broke up with, and now that she's meeting new people he's acting like her boyfriend, and she says "If you don't wanna see me dancing with somebody / If you wanna believe that anything could stop me / Don't show up / Don't come out / Don't start caring about me now". he doesn't wanna see her with other men. and she tells him to "not care about her now"
