BLACK STAR: help..

Recommended Posts

Ok

 

in the last verse, it is generally accepted as

"i get on the train and i just stand about now that i don't think of you."

 

but in the context of the song, and how he sings it, it sounds much more like

 

"I get on the train and I just stand about, NOW AND THEN i don't think of you"

 

 

Will you guys sit and listen with me?? It really bugs me, it just sounds more..

real..

more like something..

 

 

 

MORE LIKE HOW HE WOULD'VE WRITTEN IT.

 

more heart-wrenching.

That, and why would he go on to say he's so tied up that he has these huge physical reactions to seeing people who look like her?

it just makes more sense, doens't it?

I just don't think now and then fits as what is being sung.

 

Maybe its intended ironically. You know, "I just stand there and don't think about you" because he just stands there and does think of her, but doesn't want to.

that's true, but when i listen, it just sounds like hes... for lack of a better word "thom-ing" the words together.

 

"Now that I"

"Now-nthn I"

 

i mean, i know it's not the complete words "now and Then"

but it sounds like it's more than just "That"

i just wanna know what he says at the end... "somethin'... this is killin' me"... what's "somethin'"? i always thought it was "true love"... but i'm most likely wrong.

 

 

that's what i've heard too.

"Wooh-ooooh, this is killing me" is what I hear.

 

 

Also "I just stand about now and then I don't think of you" doesn't make any sense, either grammatically or in the context of the song, so I'm pretty sure it's "now that".
