Powderfinger - Thrilloilogy Lyrics




For every story gone untold
There's a secret that dissolves
So many pieces still unsolved
You're not quite who you think you are
Can see the symptoms from afar
I'm hosing down your shooting star

There you go again to fall
Waiting on a friend to call

If you wait I'm gonna drive it home
Carry all of this away from here
If you wait I'm gonna drive it home
Kiss you every time the rains appear

Sometimes we wish for far away
But something always makes me stay
Far too strong a bond to try and break
You know exactly where you've been
The shooting star is hardly seen
Outshined by every other beam

There you go again to fall
Waiting on a friend to call

If you wait I'm gonna drive it home
Carry all of this away from here
If you wait I'm gonna drive it home
Kiss you every time the rains appear

I'm feeling richer I'm feeling taller
I feel like every time I try to fit the picture
I've got to keep up with all the others
Looking for whatever we were never to discover

Now you're ringing out slowly
Like cathedral bells
And you'd sleep through heaven
Just to get to hell
Now you drop away slowly
Like the autumn leaves
But you lose your colour
When you hit the street

    For every story gone untold
    There's a secret that dissolves
    So many pieces still unsolved
    You're not quite who you think you are
    Can see the symptoms from afar
    I'm hosing down your shooting star

    Sometimes we wish for far away
    But something always makes me stay
    Far too strong a bond to try and break
    You know exactly where you've been
    The shooting star is hardly seen
    Outshined by every other beam

    Now you're ringing out slowly
    Like cathedral bells
    And you'd sleep through heaven
    Just to get to hell
    Now you drop away slowly
    Like the autumn leaves
    But you lose your colour
    When you hit the street

  5. Joel Cullen

    love this song, probably my fav powderfinger song. still remember this song being played at the old perth entertainment centre.

  6. SupaJochen

    "the other partner" meaning the one who sings this song. One of my friend said that it does not have to be a secret love, the secret is that one partner is kind of a social misfit or not quite that, but another friend interpreted it as a secret love for if it was not there is no reason for why 'the story gone untold". But it's good that the song has different meaning to different people.

  7. SupaJochen

    Another narrative or interpretation is that the other partner was chasing after thrills and was not ready to settle down yet.

  8. Boobeeliciouz

    It's about a secret love. One partner shines but socially misfit. The other chased after glory of social norms and asked this partner to wait. One drifted away in the end.

    @SaD13071986 No idea what the lyrics are about, but you don't need to understand a song to love it, fortunately
