My life is plagued
By mistakes, broken love, slaps in the face.
But I'm trying to care, to dare to embrace your face.

Hug him like a brother.
Kiss her like a sister.
Let it be my mother for now.

I want to find where the maid in the street
Is pouring her wine.
I heard she takes you in and gives you the words
You need said.

If you'll be her brother,
She'll kiss you like a sister.
She'll even be your mother for now.

Hug him like a brother.
Kiss her like a sister.
Let it be my mother.
Let it be my father.
I will be her brother.
Kiss her like a sister.
Come and be my mother forever.

These lyrics- can anyone please explain them? I'm not sure who or what they're about and they seem rather, strange. Not quite blasphemous- I don't know who/what it's about so I can't say that, but, anyone know?

I have no idea what the song is about (nor do I know what the song is) but as I was intrigued when I read it I found this;

Doesn't really make it any clearer.

That isn't even the same song- sorry buddy. This is just a song by the 90s Christian rock band Sixpence None The Richer. I was just confused at who the 'she's and 'him's and 'it's were about. Plus they're just weird lyrics.

Oh lol. It was the right song at some point but changed between pages without me even noticing, lol. 

Were they really considered a "rock" band? I didn't know they were christian freaks either. Didn't they do the theme song to Dawson's Creek or something? Not that you'd have any idea what that (awesome) show was. ;)

Pop-rock I guess if that's what you wanna call it but more rock than pop I think. Yeah they're Christian but they sure aren't freaks cause I wouldn't've even known that had it not been on CCR.Net.

    • Not inspired by Spinal Tap as both were in production at the same time & Bad News came out in 83,¬†Spinal Tap not until 84.
    • I really enjoy this band, but I have no idea who anyone is in this band. in fact that goes for amny bands these days. Maybe it's just not having the times to look it up, or maybe I just don't care that much any more lol
    • Enjoyed reading those comments as I couldn‚Äôt check the samples out until now.¬† I never judge an album on samples alone but¬†Ive played through them¬†a couple of times myself and absolutely love what I hear - big riffs, big choruses and bigger¬†production.¬† ¬† The only couple of tracks I couldn‚Äôt warm to initially was My Kaleidoskope Ark,¬†Silver Linings¬†and Hard Love. ¬† Shadows Of Eternity¬†sounds killer.. really looking forward to hearing that one in full. It has a darker ‚ÄėWalls Come Down‚Äô vibe to it. Hypnotized, Dirty Little Secret, Where Does It Hurt.. all¬†great rockers too. In terms of the more light hearted fun songs, I agree it has a more overall darker vibe, but I‚Äôd definitely put Kilimanjaro and Dirty Little Secret in that category.¬† ¬† It‚Äôs hard to get a real feel of an album after 90 seconds but this sounds really solid¬†and a huge improvement on Wall Street. Trond Holter is on fire and the album has a definite harder edge to it. Age is a class act and the production is great. So good to have these guys back, bring on January. ¬†
    • Another "Parody" band, this time from the UK. In the mid 80s, "Bad News" released an album and they were definitely influenced by "Spinal Tap". They weren't just nobodies. As with Spinal Tap's legendary pedigree, the¬†band consisted of British comedy royalty including three members of "The Young Ones", a classic 80s TV comedy. Aussies, Brits and Canadians should be familiar with it, but not so much Americans. It's a bit too much TBH. Not as subtle as Spinal Tap. ¬† ¬†
    • I'm sure most of you have seen "This is Spinal Tap". If you haven't, then I would highly suggest you do so immediately.¬† The original "Steel Panther". The second clip¬†is possibly one of the funniest music related clips ever! ¬† ¬† ¬†
    • Shannon - Let the Music Play. Not everyone's cup of tea I'm sure, but I heard it today in the supermarket and was transported back to the eighties, as I am every time I hear it. Always loved this track. ¬† ¬†
    • Cry Alone - Jimi Jamison¬†
    • Cool. Thanks for the write-up. I'm glad I didn't purchase the Rock Boulevard discs when I said I would, 'cause now I'll just grab all three.¬†
