LYRICS

I’m still remembering the day I gave my life away
I’m still remembering the time you said you’d be mine
Yesterday was cold and bare, because you were not there
Yesterday was cold, my story has been told

I need your affection all the way-ay-ay
The world is changing and has changed away-ay-ay-ay
I try to remain, I’m trying not to go insa-a-ane
I need your affection all the way (the way)
Get away, get away, get away-ay-ay-ay-ay
Get away, get away, get away-ay-ay-ay-ay

I’m still remembering my life before I became your wife
I’m still remembering the pain and the mind games
Reverse psychology never tainted me
I didn’t sell my soul, I didn’t sell my so-oul

I need your affection all the way-ay-ay
The world is changing and has changed away-ay-ay-ay
I try to remain, I’m trying not to go insa-a-ane
I need your affection all the way (the way)

They say the cream will always rise to the top
They say that good people are always first to drop
What of Kurt Cobain, will his presence still rema-a-ain
Remember J.F.K., ever saintly in a way
Where are you now (where are you now)
Where are you now (where are you now)
Where are you now (where are you now)
I say where are you no-ow

I need your affection all the way-ay-ay (affection all the way)
I need your affection all the way-ay-ay (affection all the way)
I need your affection all the way-ay-ay (affection all the way)
I need your affection all the way-ay-ay (affection all the way)
All the way, all the way, all the way, all the way, all the way
All the way, all the way, all the way, all the way, all the way

MEANING

Dolores, speaking of Kurt Cobain’s death: “It was kind of sad how, you know, sometimes, when people die, you expect there to be a silence. But there wasn’t a silence. You know what RIP means. It means “rest in peace.” And I suppose it was kind of sad because nobody seemed to want to let it be. Everybody was just like, boom! It was just a big media thing, so it was kind of sad.” (MTV.com, May 5, 1996)
