Teresa - Joan Osborne - Relish by LyricFind. Teresa song meanings. Add your thoughts 15 Comments. General Comment Love this song. I think it's definitely a story of a drug addicted prostitute. I think the "trash" is all the discarded packets bags drug users leave behind. I think she's talking about her vein when she says "way down in the hollow", and "leaving so soon" could mean she's going to escape her troubles.
Perhaps I'm completely off base but that's about all I've come up with. No Replies Log in to reply. There was an error. Song Meaning The song is about a drug-addicted prostitute, but the reference to St. Teresa is not to a patron saint, but to a famous St. Teresa - Joan Osborne - Relish , "The Ecstasy of St. In her autobiography, St. Teresa describes the scene memorialized in the statute as follows: "The pain was so great, that it made me St. Teresa - Joan Osborne - Relish and yet so surpassing was the sweetness of this excessive pain, that I could not wish to be rid of it.
ChelseaGuy Six years after your time traveling explanation has reached me, reader, in the opposite side of the planet, in Beijing, almost another dimension. Thank you for your words, they perfectly fit the allusion to st Teresa.
St. Teresa - Joan Osborne - Relish saw this sculpture, the ecstatic pain Flag Ambrebalte on August 30, That character actually was based on a woman I used to see out my window when I was living on the lower east side in New York City.
I would see this woman out on the street corner, and she had a baby in a stroller with her. She was selling drugs fairly openly on the corner.
Those were the days when that neighborhood was really kind of like the Wild West. I was fascinated by her because I thought she was really a strong person to be out on the street doing what she was doing with her child by her side. I kind of admired her in a way, not that I would ever want to raise my own daughter in those circumstances, but this was a woman who was making the best of her situation and doing what she could to support her family in this urban jungle environment.
So, I became fascinated with her. I thought that if I could see her that maybe there were other people who were looking out windows and watching her as well. The song is from the point of view of imagining somebody else who is watching her and who might go down and buy some drugs from her and have a relationship with her. It was based on that. General Comment St. Teresa isn't necessarily a person, but a place.
She Kamarinskaia (Danse Populaire Russe) - Various - Voyage En URSS (Anthologie De La Musique Instrument "Corner St. Either a street named so where this person is located or even, and Envious - Dev/Null - 92-94 Oldschool Jungle Mix actually looked it up, a church by the name of St.
Teresa which there is one where she lived in Kentucky and one in New York City, where she also lived that this person she speaks of in the song is found. Of course it really could be about anyone. A prostitute or even just a homeless mother with her baby on the street who is sick, or makes money by hooking, or something of that sort. If you are sticking to her actually talking about St.
Teresa herself, there's two who's patronages match for this story she could be telling. General Comment This song to me has an emotional meaning and i think that what it's really saying is that here is a woman who is apparently trying to survive the only way she can to support herself and her baby by selling drugs or herself in an attempt to escape the sadness of her life.
General Comment I think this is the best song on the album. Does anyone have any idea who St Teresa is and what she has to do with anything??
General Comment Oh my god are you kidding? Have you been living under a rock your entire life? The interpretation I usually hear is that the song is about a whore who's taking the singer around, and seeing life through her eyes. Teresa is either some patron saint of the oldest profession, or a metaphor for a drug that takes her "higher than the moon".
General Comment I know we're supposed to be talking about the lyrics, but I just adore the intro to this song, starting in regular before adopting the St Teresa lilt. Listen again, and smile Rate These Lyrics.
