OK, this is excerpt from the lyrics of a song by Saosin called "Voices".
I am having trouble figuring out what he means in the second stanza. Mostly lines 3 and 4 from it, but the whole thing really. The other stanzas are for context.


We speak in different voices
When fighting with the ones we've loved
We speak in different voices
Why can't we say what we're thinking of

I'm missing parts, now that you've told me everything
On our way down
And I was blessed and I've forgotten how to love
You said you'd never tell

And when you're on your way down
Through the clouds
And you're waiting for your body's re-entry again

We speak in different voices
When fighting with the ones we've loved
We speak in different voices
Why can't we say what we're thinking of


Thanks.

What the hell? Techniques? That makes no sense at all.

EDIT: ohhh...the subforum in here, i thought you meant the techniques forum for guitar.

Honestly, Cove's lyrics aren't that deep or profound, so don't read into them TOO much.

Okay,

And I was blessed and I've forgotten how to love

He was blessed in that now he knew the truth. He's forgotten how to love in that he doesn't want to go through the same thing again so he's given up on love.

I'm assuming that since he used "and" in the middle, that the "blessed" and "forgotten" parts aren't directly linked. Unless he just didn't realize that that would be the implication. If that was the case, and they do belong together, then I guess he just means that he's blessed that he won't fall in love with her (or any other heartless bitch) again.

You said you'd never tell

This isn't really connected or significant He just put it there because he thought it sounded good. That's how he rolls.
