Scott Cohen from Somers New York'Stones" refers to pian. Not physical pain , but mental or emotional pain. "They made her bed". Stones are uncomfortable; like walking bare foot on stones, or sleeping on a pillow filled with stone. She goes to bed every night with the mistake of leaving the one who truly loved her every night...., it weighs on her.
Jessica from Winslow, MaineAbout the line, "And bein' lost is worth the comin' home." Wouldn't it make more sense the other way around...coming home is worth being lost? I've been listening to this song since it first came out and I love it...but that line intrigues me. :)
Ray from Corona California Just heard Neal Diamond “Stones” while having dinner. I have not heard that song in a long time, one of my favorites.
Thomas from North Myrtle Beach,I have always thought that the song's simple lyrics spoke volumes about the deep felt connection of two people, who can never be whole, until they complete themselves with one another. As you listen to the song, I think you have to read between the lines. Itâ€™s about a girl, who has lost her way and struggles to find love and solace in her life but never putting down roots. The boy, who loves her, struggles with the need to have her by his side but also, is a wonderer as well, if only in his mind. He longs for and dreams about the time when his love will return to him and fulfill both their lives. He believes that love can root and grow, even on stones.
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
