Default Foo Fighters - All My Life

I hope this doesn't offend anybody, but I've been having this discussion with a friend who insisted he knew what this song was all about. Well, I just thought he was being a man until he showed me Dave Grohl's answer, so I guess I have to believe it.

What do you think this is all about and if you know don't blow it



All my life I've been searching for something,
Something never comes, never leads to nothing,
Nothing satisfies, but I'm getting close,
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope.
All night long I dream of the day,
Then it comes around and it's taken away,
Leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most,
Feel it come to life when I see your ghost.

Come down, don't you resist,
You've such a delicate wrist.
And if I give it a twist,
Something to hold when I lose my grip.
Will I find something in the air,
To give me just what I need.
Another reason to bleed.
ONE BY ONE hidden up my sleave,
ONE BY ONE hidden up my sleave.

Chorus:
Hey, don't let it go to waste,
I love it but I hate the taste.
Weight keeping me down.

Will I find a believer,
Another one who believes,
Another one that decieves,
Over and over down on my knees
If I get any closer,
And if you open up wide.
If you let me inside,
On and on I got nothing to hide,
On and on i got nothing to hide.

Done, done onto the next one, done

I think there's an obvious sexual meaning.
I'd say it's about someone, a prostitute maybe, searching either for real love or the ultimate orgasm, or both, through extreme sex and drugs.
Last verse makes me suppose that person is a gay man.

Freud help me.

Damn fine song

Uh, never really thought about it before, but I would agree that it's either about gay sex or masturbation by the looks of it

Keep On Rockin'

whew - couldn't find the thing anymore lol. Well, found it now, here it is:


Is the line "I love it but I hate the taste" from All My Life about oral sex?
Stan, Merseyside [again...]

Dave: It is, actually. That song is a little dirty. Use your imagination, but good call - you're the first person that's ever asked that. From experience? Many. I'm very fond of giving oral sex to women. It's a pleasure-giving experience - giving someone something that they'll remember for the rest of their lives, and if you do it right they will.

From: Grohl's poor brain
