Live Lyrics


You'd think that after almost a year of non-stop touring on
their last opus, The Distance To Here, Ed Kowalczyk, Chad
Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Gracey would be ready
for a little R& R. Not so. Fresh off a world tour, the
group that calls itself LIVE still forgo time off to
hunker down at a Los Angeles recording studio. Three and a
half weeks later they emerge with a near-finished record.

Kowalczyk explains further, The Distance to Here world
tour was just an
unbelievable experience. That record is just so uplifting More...

Review about Live songs
Endangered Love | Reviewer: Madoda Irvine Phoswa
    ------ About the song All Over You performed by Live

THIS is a beautiful song with a haunting rhythm, melody and the high pitched haunting voice of Ed. You fall in love with it even before you hear or understand the lyrics:

Our love like water
Pinned down and abused for being strange

I must confess for many years I thought it was "I love you like water" but that was before I read the lyrics. I call this song "endangered love" for it appears there is an outside force threatening to dissolve the union and the singer is at pain to appeal to his partner to hold on what they have:

Our love like water
Pinned and abused for being strange

There appears to be an element of pathology in this affair and the forces that may be are opposed to it. SO this singer appeals to his love to hold on, to focus on what they have and reward him with some bit of attention:

pay me now, lay me down
pay me now, pay me now

The song in a more intense version of "down in the boondocks" with the theme of unapproved love very explicit. Here however the singer does not give reasons for the lack of support from other, family for example. In "down in the boondocks" the reason is stated clearly:

DOWN in the boondocks
People put me down
Cause that the side of town
I was born in

I love her, she loves me
But I DON'T fit her society
Lord have mercy on this boy
From down in the boondocks

To conclude this is a beautiful, timeless song about forbidden love where the singer appeals to his object of desire to stay true to love otherwise what they have dissolves.





Religion as a dramatic act | Reviewer: Madoda Phoswa
    ------ About the song Selling The Drama performed by Live

This is Live's most explicit song concerning religion. It is a critique of mainstream beliefs that the believer has to adhere to and the accompanying practises of loving a god and fearing the flame and so on. Central to this is the employment of dramatic techniques to put the audience in an altered state of mind: "its the way we sing that makes them dream". The main idea here is that these dramatic techniques are soon followed by collection of money (thithes etc) hence the title of the song "selling the drama". It is regrattable that Ed et al can see the deficiences and contradictions of religion but continue to engage in religion themselves, the Eastern religions they have been experimenting with.

Intense Love | Reviewer: Madoda Phoswa
    ------ About the song I Alone performed by Live

I think the song is about intense love that the singer feels for the girl. He tells her he is the only one that loves her and that even the greatest of teachers won't even hesitate to leave her by herself chained to Fate.

On a second level this is a plea to the loved one to stay true to love cause everything else is temporary:

OH, now, we took it back to far
Only love can save us now...

So this song like "All Over You All Over Me" harks back to intense almost pathological love: unity with of the self so that we are one. It is in the lines of THE MISSION'S "Lose Myself To You" and SUEDE'S "New Generation" REM'S "Love Currencies" with the central theme of an attempt to completely identify with the object of desire.


Smelly balls | Reviewer: Turket butt
    ------ About the song Lightning Crashes performed by Live

This song is about turd balls,the great struggle between who stretched the butthole more during exit,the little turds have no chance against the large really smelly ones, so they eventually just sink to the bottom,never more to be sniffed,,its truly a sad thing.

Overcome | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Overcome performed by Live

To so humbly stand before God and say "IM OVERCOME" is such a tough thing to do in todays world. Bravo!! God truely does work in our lives and when we open our eyes and our hearts...it is overwhelming and wonderful at the same time :)

Kayne's "come back" song | Reviewer: Taylor :]
    ------ About the song Run Away performed by Live

okay i thought that this was supposed to be a song the told Taylor that he were sorry for the things that you said to her on the last "vma's" well guess not. Kayne seems not to care that he hurt Taylor... I would be ashamed. You cant even say "im sorry" Taylor Swift was right i guess 31 is still growing up. I think that Kayne should grow some balls and say that he was wrong!!! Thats all for now :)

Ahh... good old York | Reviewer: Nichole
    ------ About the song Shit Towne performed by Live

While I can say that this song can be about anywhere, knowing that Live was from York, I can agree. I used to live about a stone's throw from the ghetto, and this song couldn't be anymore true. Although the crackheads lived next door and ran a prostitution ring.

York is awesome. Thank you Live for capturing it perfectly.
