Misheard Lyrics?
« on: July 08, 2007, 07:49:13 pm »
Yes, I'm sure we've all foolishly mistaken a lyric in one of Vanessa's songs before actually looking it up and feeling really stupid afterwards. Here are some of mine:

White Houses:
Quote
Little bungalow with some strange new friends


Pretty Baby:
Quote
Can you hold me and never let go / When you touch me is it me that you want


She Floats:
Quote
God knows secrets though I'm told


I'm sure there are a lot more; I suck at listening to lyrics. :P What about the rest of you guys?
And needless to say you're the one that I need the most...

In Ordinary Day, the line "Time will not flee". I always thought it was "Time will not freeze"
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

well, some of the lyrics on nessaholics.com are still incorrect.


for example, the correct line in She Floats is "Got no secrets, though I'm told..."

When my brother first heard White Houses he thought Vanessa was saying, "WHITE POWER!" instead of "White Houses."

lol
And it's bad news, baby it's bad news
It's just bad news, bad news, bad news
'Cause you're just damage control
For a walking corpse like me - like you,
'Cause we'll all be portions for foxes
Yeah, we'll all be portions for foxes.

When I first heard 'San Francisco', I thought she said "I always like Steinbeck and those old men wrestling"  :?

I always thought the line in Who's to Say was "Do your trick, turn on the stars of Jupiter" and that always struck me as wtf. Plus I always heard the line "We need to grow / well speed's the key" as "We need to grow to speak the key". I just assumed they were "abstract".

Also, I always heard the line in Private Radio as "On a whim I'll leave this town", but every lyrics site out there said "If I don't win I'll leave this town", and that sounded stupid to me. And then I checked the liner notes and saw that I had been right the entire time. Woo.
