What is DECA? some sort of accademic decathalon, or one of those high school science things, or what?

unfortunately these are roasted garlic flavor. i love garlic so much i'd rub it all over my body, regardless if i was being attacked by vampires. yet... i'm finding it doesn't mix too well with magic hat.
Ah, so they're a kind of cracker by the looks of things. Here I was, expecting some kind of ultimate biscuit. I mean a proper biscuit. Not your weird American things.

Yeah, take that, Varitek and your baiting!

No. It's in Andorra.

U2's roving tour of art galleries in European mini-states.

You are really wrong on this one. No wonder you don't like UV.

Let's review.

Quote:
You bury your treasure
Where it can't be found
But your love is like a secret
That's been passed around
There is a silence that comes to a house
Where no one can sleep

I guess it's the price of love
I know it's not cheap
I assume you get this part. I've bolded the key information, but the rest is great too. Something is wrong; something is falling apart.

Quote:
I remember
When we could sleep on stones
Sleep on stones - you were so comfortable together you could get through anything, sleep without waking each other up (quite a skill) etc

Quote:
Now we lie together
In whispers and moans
When I was all messed up
And I had opera in my head
Your love was a light bulb
Hanging over my bed
There is a great amount of agitation here. It is tempting and even confusing to interpret whispers and moans as sexual/seductive but I don't think that's what it is. Especially because then we have past tense here. There's something wrong, which is one of the most intriguing things about the song given the first verse and the refrain.

But it doesn't make any fucking sense. Sleep on stones? That's got to hurt.

It's like it's meant to sound meaningful, but it's just junk.

this is so frustrating with ES - I know exactly what needs to be done and how I want to do it but I'm having trouble getting the program to do it.

sleeping on stones does hurt that's the point. they could get through anything, they weren't bothered by anything.


also i am having trouble pinpointing just exactly when I want to cut in and out for the part i'm replacing

But ... that's not at all how I fear it. I hear it as "hey, things used to be really fucked", not "we could get through anything". Honestly, some of the lines seem to be saying things used to be great and now aren't, while others like the stones one seem to be saying things used to suck too.

"I remember when we could sleep on stones" is obviously Bono saying that they used to be able to handle anything.....the whispers and moans line denotes that they cannot even sleep in their own bed together any longer, restless, etc.
