Memories of the 90s

I was listening to a lot of 90s rock songs since yesterday, songs that I grew up with. They brought back streams of memories.

One of my favourite is “Everything You Want” from Vertical Horizon. It’s a song about hmm… being friendzoned?

From lyrics to the electronic reverbs, the song is written in a moody note. A guy waiting hopelessly for the girl he likes to notice him yet she showed love to all others except him. Sounds familiar?

I especially love the use of angels in the lyrics & the subtlety of the guitar chord changes. This song deported me back in time to my adolescent years~

How’s the 90s like to you? Or which song reminds you most of your teenage years?

Somewhere there’s speaking
It’s already coming in
Oh and it’s rising at the back of your mind
You never could get it
Unless you were fed it
Now you’re here and you don’t know why

But under skinned knees and the skid marks
Past the places where you used to learn
You howl and listen
Listen and wait for the
Echoes of angels who won’t return

He’s everything you want
He’s everything you need
He’s everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don’t know why

You’re waiting for someone
To put you together
You’re waiting for someone to push you away
There’s always another wound to discover
There’s always something more you wish he’d say

But you’ll just sit tight
And watch it unwind
It’s only what you’re asking for
And you’ll be just fine
With all of your time
It’s only what you’re waiting for

Out of the island
Into the highway
Past the places where you might have turned
You never did notice
But you still hide away
The anger of angels who won’t return

I am everything you want
I am everything you need
I am everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
I say all the right things
At exactly the right time
But I mean nothing to you and I don’t know why
And I don’t know why
Why
I don’t know
