Hey, Soul Sister Lyrics

Hey Hey Hey

Your lipstick stains
On the front lobe of my left side brains
I knew I wouldn't forget you
And so I went and let you blow my mind
Your sweet moonbeam
The smell of you in every single dream I dream
I knew when we collided you're the...

    If you've ever fallen suddenly and deeply in love, this is the perfect description. That one that you just KNOW is for you. My husband and I are like this. We were engaged only 6 months after meeting and we've been happily together ever since. It's that on top of the clouds, completely in awe that there is a perfect match just for you, stricken by their beauty and by the way their mind mingles with yours feeling. Your partner feels like a great adventure and home at the same time. This song, to me, is a description and celebration of what he has found.

    so basically, the song starts out as the guy is extremely depressed & suicidal (listen to the first verse and really think about those lyrics over and over- it's like a poem). So he's really down, but then he finds this girl. And he knew that it was love at first sight. The girl is his "soul sister" or soul mate.

    I think the song is about a man who got lost in his life and found this girl who is just like him (you have a one track mind like me), gave his life a "direction" then he fell inlove with her but the problem is that he couldn't find the girl anymore so he just wrote a song for her about what she made him feel and that he will never forget her.

    "Your lipstick stains
    On the front lobe of my left side brains"

    This particular line blows my mind. The frontal lobe of the left side of the brains is the one in charge of speech and language related info.

    He's basically saying her kisses left him speechless

    I think the song is about a guy who has been through a lot in life, and his “soul sister” (basically his soulmate) is the only one who understands him.

    I think this song talk about sister love or a strong realtionship between a brother and sister.

    This song is about sex. Lipstick stains on the left side of his face by his earlobe, close to his brain; she blew his mind (amazing sex); one track mind(dirty sex is my interpretation there): moonbeams are her breasts according to my husband; he loves loving this girl and is finding a deeper connection from starting this relationship with sex.

    Guys! What if its about drugs? Crazy I know, but the more I thought about it, the more it could make sense. Just think about it.

    He seems to like the way the girl carries herself.He likes her the way she is.Maybe she is very close to her making her more like a sister than a friend.That's why he calls her a soul sister. It may not be romantic love but a fraternal love.

    The lines in the song are a metaphor to show that the girl has always been in his mind as a part of her is stained on to his brain!

    He thinks about her all the time. Even in his dream.

    when they first met, he knew right then and there that she was the one.

    also that she is completely perfect, and has no imperfections.

    This is def about a twin soul connection. If anyone had experienced it, they would recognize the lyrics right away. It's very offbeat but very lovely as well. Luv it.

    I think it is a guy calling out to a girl and saying that she is a beautiful girlfriend, everything he could ever ask for, but thaat she is also his best friend.
