What would you consider this to mean, i.e. what is the meaning of this song?

All My Life - Foo Fighters

All my life Ive been searching for somethin
Somethin never comes, never leads to nuthin
Nothin satisfies, but Im gettin close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope

All night long I dream of the day
When it comes around, and its takinaway
Leaves me with the feelin that I fear the most
Feel it come to life when I see your ghost

Calm down, dont you resist
Your such a delicate rist
And if I give it a twist
Somethin to hold when I lose my grip

Will I find something in there,
To give it just what it needs
Another reason to bleed
One by one, hidden up my sleeve

One by one, hidden up my sleeve

[3x]
Hey, dont let it go to waste
I love it but, I hate that taste
Weight keeping me down

Will I find the believer
Another one who believes
Another one to decieve
Over and over, down on my knees

If I get any closer, i
And if you open up wide
And if you let me inside
On and on, Ive got nuthin to hide

On and on Ive got nuthin to hide

[3x]
Hey, dont let it go to waste
I love it but, I hate that taste
Weight keeping me down

All my life Ive been searching for somethin
Somethin never comes, never leads to nuthin
Nothin satisfies, but Im gettin close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope

All night long I dream of the day
When it comes around, and its takinaway
Leaves me with the feelin that I feel the most
Feel it come to life when I see your ghost

Done, done; on to the next one
Done, done, and Im on to the next one
Done, done, and Im on to the next one
Done, done, and Im on to the next one

Done, done, and Im on to the next one
[2x]
Done, done, and Im on the next one
Done, Im done, and Im on to the next

[3x]
Done, done; on the next one

Done, Im done; Im on to the next one

[3x]
Hey, dont let it go to waste
I love it but , I hate that taste
Weight keeping me down

[2x]
Done, done; on the next one

Done, Im done; Im on to the next

Apparently this is about kinky sex grin

....said so in NME when the album came out so it must be true!

How the hell is that? grin

a lost love - he's searching for soemthing and doesn't know what - almost as if what he's looking for goes as soon as it sems possible.

(either that or is having suicidal thought??)

don't get the kinky sex bit!

That he/she loves someone but hasnt told them ... theyve come close to but havent for fear of being rejected.

sort of like a lost love... searching for love??

I think it's a cynical song,about someone that enjoys the thrill of the chase of a sexual partner, but dumps them and is on to the next one once they have pulled.

It sounds suicidal to me, with a little bit of selfharm in it.? Who said that it meant something to them?

newlifenewname Fri 21-Sep-07 19:52:23

exdp hmm

3Ddonut Fri 21-Sep-07 20:00:00
