Ok really enjoying Ray LaMontagne with my champagne buzz:
Song: "Jolene"
By: Ray LaMontagne
Album: Trouble (it's at the end of some Ben Affleck movie I cannot recall the name off but it is about bank robbers)

[size=150][i]
"Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
Sold my coat when I hit Spokane
Bought myself a hard pack of cigarettes in the early morning rain

Lately my hands they don't feel like mine
My eyes been stung with dust, I'm blind
Held you in my arms one time
Lost you just the same

Jolene
I ain't about to go straight
It's too late
I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze in my hair
Blood on my lips
A picture of you, holding a picture of me
in the pocket of my blue jeans

Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means
Jolene

Jolene
Been so long since I seen your face
or felt a part of this human race"

I think it's "but you'll always be part of my plan".
lyrics are personal, and not always easy to interpret b/c we can't always figure who & the meaning.
But this song sounds sorta sounds like an apology to a love or friend.

Or, perhaps, the "you" is a life plan, or a potential mate. Who knows.
But the empty picture frame has gotta be someone gone, or someone/thing not fulfilled.

there was this song by Carly Simon called "You're so Vain" and for years nobody knew who it was about. I heard recently she revealed it was about some arrogant producer/music biz guy!
I always assumed it was about James Taylor!

Ha! That's funny you mention that song...a couple of friends of mine were in a metal band called Faster Pussycat (from the 80's) and they covered that song. It was one of their biggest hits!

You know me - I'm a metal head at heart. :twisted:

:shock: omg! yup same song different style! :lol:
the song of the 70's I guess covered in the 80's or 90's!!

So what about Hey, Floyd!
awesome song? great lyrics? very complex tune, well done. :D

"There's a night train to your heartbreak, get on
It's the dreamtime, That's been driving you on... and on"
and "breaking the chains" a repeated reference also "Pig"!

But the name Floyd...didn't they record in Pink Floyd's mansion?
