Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Breathe

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Breathe's, "Hands To Heaven"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Tonight, I need your sweet caress
Hold me in the darkness
Tonight, you call my breasts love nests
You relieve my sadness.
The Real Lyrics:
Tonight, I need your sweet caress
Hold me in the darkness
Tonight, you calm my restlessness
You relieve my sadness.
The Story: When I was in my early teens, I used to hear this song on the radio when driving with my parents and get all embarassed because I thought they said, 'Tonight, you call my breasts love nests.' As weird as this was, I was even more curious as to why it would be a guy's breasts as the singer is a man. Fortunately my girlfriend explained this to me some 13 years later that the lyric is, 'Tonight, you calm my restlessness.' Duh! Thanks Kel! - Submitted by: Bernie

The Real Lyrics:
Tonight you calm my restlessness.
The Story: I was like eight or nine years old when this song came out. I thought the girl in the song left the guy and on top of that insulted his friend by calling him a snot snass. I started using snot snass as an insult for a bit after this. - Submitted by: Jake
