Pearl Jam – State of Love and Trust (Singles Soundtrack 1992)

This is a great Pearl Jam song from the “Singles” soundtrack. It is one of the best movie soundtracks I’ve ever listened to.

It’s been awhile since I’ve last posted …sounds like the beginning of a creepy confession. Forgive me rock music for I have sinned… lately I have been too busy with work, house chores and a lot of guitar practice. I got rid of the horrible draining job, the house is tidy enough and my guitar still has 6 perfect strings. Now it’s time to listen to some wonderful relaxing music.

I had quit my job a week ago and I’m looking forward to start a new career, I’ve abounded the finance industry for good or at least this is how feel right now. I’m hoping that this time I won’t be scared to invent myself and find new passions, it is scary but as my Hubby says it’s the greatest point in your life, endless possibilities. Luckily he is very supportive. Since I am a little confused and clueless he is helping me figure out what I want. I’m still not sure what I’m going to do but I know what I don’t want to do and that’s a start. I thought this song is quite suitable for this point in my life  and I listen for the voice inside my head nothin', I'll do this one myself” … great song from  the good old Vedder’s days…

Lyrics: State of Love and Trust

What’s this song is about?

According to Ament, the lyrics for "State of Love and Trust" are based on what Vedder took from watching the film, and added, "I think he probably took a heavier angle on what the movie was about than a lot of people will, but that's Eddie, which is a beautiful thing." According to Cameron Crowe, director of Singles, the song is "about battling with your instincts in love." Before a performance of the song at Pearl Jam's September 8, 1998 show in East Rutherford, New Jersey at Continental Airlines Arena, Vedder introduced it as "a song about being faithful."(State of love and trust – Wikipedia)[
