    Wash


    First experience of young prostitute?
    First experience with prostitute?

    --- Oh it was the time. Like a clean new taste.
    Smiling eyes before me and tears from my face.


    And she or he wants to wash off the dirt of dirty love 9with customers/with prostitute)?

    Wash my love. Wash my love. Wash my love, yeah.


    Sin for sale. Buying just a need. O who planted all the devils seeds?


    And what he feels about the experience:
    What's clean is pure. But hey, I'm white on the outside. Though I stray.
    What she don't know today might kill us both tomorrow. Bring it back someway.

    He or she would love to take it as it never happened?
    forget?
    Bring it back, back, back... to the clean form. To the pure form.

    Wash my love. Wash my love. Wash my love. Wash my love.
    Wash my love. Wash my love. Wash my love. Yeah
    Wash my ...wash my...wash my love....yeaaaaaaahhhhhhh

    Wash is an extremely powerfull song... because it sounds sexual, hurt, inoccent, and also the exact opposite of that...

    When I listen to it, I usually thought about the situation when one ends up destroying a relationship because of betrayal... or because one screwed up in some way... and bears a dark secret that will eventually be unveiled...

    Now, when I listen to it, what comes to my mind is more about something to do with a first sexual contact one had, but in a way that was kind of inappropriate, dirty, or wrong... or even with some violence associated, as in rape or sexual abuse... and how one ends up feeling different, and somehow filthy... I don't know... it sounds sexual but somehow disturbing...

    It can really lead to so many interpretations... but one thing is clear... it's an amazing song... very intense!

  • A great song that would have been excellent on Ten.

    Listened to the import version from Germany.

    I like it more than the Lost Dogs version.

    Phenomenal.

    Long road is a great 1st song as well!

    I love the color of my car because the gray in the bright light looks purple and purple always reminds me of pearl jam, obvious reasons.

    LNGROAD would be a great plate.

    I love pearl jam plates that also have something to do with cars or roads, etc.

    My 1st choice was GONE, but somebody already had that, but now I am glad I have WASH, it means a lot more to me than gone.

    Wash is my all time favorite song, today!lol

    my thoughts on the meaning behind the lyrics.I believe this song is about secrets in general.when i first heard this near the beginning of their career, I had to toss it in the garbage.it hit too close to home.certain feelings about things done/not done, things said/not said etc.I wasn't ready to let go of.fast forward 18 years later after losing myself in drugs and alcohol i came across this song again on Lost Dogs.really drove home my intial impression.since been able let go of much of what was blocking me from at the begining.much of what I hear in most of their stuff relates to me in a 12 step recovery kinda way.lotta hope found there.
