"April Skies" as written by William Adam Reid and Billy Reid....
Hey honey what you trying to say
As I stand here
Don't you walk away
And the world comes tumbling down
Hand in hand in a violent life
Making love on the edge of a knife
And the world comes tumbling down
And it's hard
For me to say
And it's hard
For me to stay
I'm going down
To be by myself
I'm going back
For the good of my health
And there's one thing
I couldn't do
Sacrifice myself to you
Sacrifice
Baby baby I just can't see
Just what you mean to me
I take my aim and I fake my words
I'm just your long time curse
And if you walk away
I can't take it
But that's the way that you are
And that's the things that you say
But now you've gone too far
With all the things you say
Get back to where you come from
I can't help it
Under the April skies
Under the April sun
Sun grows cold
Sky gets black
And you broke me up
And now you won't come back
Shaking hand, life is dead
And a broken heart
And a screaming head
Under the April sky

    Song MeaningI think this song it pretty much about being in a sick relationship, not for a partner fault but simply for his/her way of being. It kinda express a feeling like "for a long time I was in love with you and I wasn't able to say no, it's not your fault it's ok, it's just that I can't live like this anymore".
    The "I'm just your long time curse" means (in my opinion, of course) that you really understand that your parner doesen't love you, he/her is just obsessed by you in a certain way, but this has nothing to do with affection.

    General CommentThis one's written from the perspective of Mary Magdalene, who's upset that Jesus "broke up" with her. Either that or taking crystal meth. Knowing these guys, probably both.

    "and there's one thing
    i couldnt do
    sacrifice myself to you
    sacrifice
    baby baby i just can't see
    just what you mean to me
    i take my aim and i fake my words
    i'm just your long time curse"

    General CommentIt seems to me like that somewhere between "Hey honey what you trying to say / As I stand here / Don't you walk away" and "But that's the way that you are / And that's the things that you say" some parts are quotation? Like stuff she tells him? Kinda like emotional games and always going on and off? And he believes this time is the last time, that she's gone too far with such talking, that she never comes back and he's sick of her behaviour anyway, when truth is that she has him wrapped around her finger and thus he will always fall for her as soon as she longs for him because he's obsessed and in love with her? Maybe I'm far off. Just a thought.

    General Commentthis song pretty much sums up my last relationship. he kept trying to assure me that he was okay with my late night phone calls, that he was okay with my feeling that i needed him, but i could never trust him/"sacrifice myself to you". he was still messing around with girls. so i walked off. now we're trying to be friends, and i still want to feel insecure sometimes.
    It all started in April.

    General CommentCan I use Chinese? my mother tongue.

    我一直以为这是首很甜美的歌,因为它的旋律实在太好听了。
    今天才看歌词……

    不知道这个“我”在四月的天空下呆呆站了多久,望着她离开的方向。
    太阳、天空,这一切看上去那么温暖,可是他的心却越来越往下坠。
    太阳已经下山,天也将黑。他明白她再也不会回来。
    他也不知道该怎么办。
    好像死亡更容易一点……

    但Jim Reid唱这首歌的样子,不会让你想到这些——
    好像这是别人的事情,
    好像那个“我”早已把自己裹起来。

    Can't live without you.
    So, one of us has to die...
