Taylor Swift – State of Grace Lyrics 8 years ago
I can relate and empathize a lot w/all that you wrote concerning the close friendship/history that you've built with your BGFF (best guy friend forever)...and so I have to ask you further now---does your buddy have a girlfriend, or, has he told you about some other girl(s) he's interested in pursuing a relationship with at his college..or no?

And I ask b/c I wonder if that might be a part of what's causing you to think that you'll probably keep your true feelings to yourself and never express them to your friend.

I'm nearly 40 years old & have had 2 BGFF relationships in my life..both have left deep, permanent impressions within my heart yet in very distinctly different ways..one I've never felt anything more than blood brother feelings toward..but with the other...after many years I suddenly woke up one morning & realized that my feelings about him had crossed from the innocent & simple "sibling" type and over into the more serious & complex "fallen in love" category--as yours have now..I chose to remain silent and never told him how my feelings had changed and, not too long after I'd come to my realization about how I felt about him...he fell in love with a lovely woman, got married and they have a beautiful baby girl...as remorseful as I feel about the decision I made once, to never express my "new, true" feelings to him, I'm simultaneously filled with pride and joy for him and the little family they've now created, b/c my bottom line with it all is that he truly is happy and rewarded in life. But, ahh, what if I'd only told him the truth.......???

Stay strong & best of luck with whatever you decide to do there :)

Michael Franti And Spearhead – Everyone Deserves Music Lyrics 10 years ago
Love it. The lyrics hold sooooooooo much truth within their prose that certainly apply to the current state of our society. Both here in the US as well as around the world.

Ditto on the opinions about Franti being so overlooked/underrated.

Enya – Someone Said Goodbye Lyrics 10 years ago
Summer. When the day is over
there's a heart a little colder;
someone said goodbye,
but you don't know why.
Somewhere there is someone keeping
All the tears they have been weeping,
Someone said goodbye,
But you don't know why.

Is there a reason
Why a broken heart begins to cry?
Is there a reason
You were lost although you don't know why?
Give me a reason
Why you never want to say goodbye.
If there's a reason,
I don't know why.

Always looking for a meaning,
All the time you keep believing,
But I don't know why
You won't say goodbye.

Even when the sun is shining
You don't see the silver lining,
But I don't know why
You won't say goodbye.

Is there a reason
Why a broken dream can never fly?
Is there a reason
You believe and then you close your eyes?
Give me a reason
Why you hide away so much inside.
If there's a reason,
I don't know why.

Is there a reason
Why a broken heart begins to cry?
Is there a reason
You were lost although you don't know why?
Give me a reason
Why you never want to say goodbye.
If there's a reason,
I don't know why.
I don't know why.
I don't know why.
I don't know why.

Lifehouse – All That I'm Asking For Lyrics 10 years ago
Magical song, beautiful lyrics. Especially love these lines:

"Now we walk together
Knowing where we've been
Knowing the stakes of being mistaken again
It's in the past tense
There is no making sense of it now.."

Thoughts & feelings that I think are universally experienced at least once by a person while in a relationship.

Madonna – Promise To Try Lyrics 11 years ago
For myself, personally, this song is beautifully bittersweet b/c it makes me think of my oldest sister. She essentially had to forfeit her childhood to our father. Essentially, they had an agreement where if she kept silent about his sexual abuse of her, he wouldn't do the same to the 3 younger sisters. She sacrificed her first 21 years in order for her sisters to escape the monster's madness. She was around age six when the abuse first began, but our father didn't tell us the truth until 35 years later. Some of the words & lyrics Madonna wrote in this song never fail to make me think of my sister's childhood & what she surrendered in order for us to escape the abuse.

"Little girl don't you forget her face
Laughing away your tears
When she was the one who felt all the pain" <-

Alanis Morissette – Hand In My Pocket Lyrics 11 years ago
"Green" is a term that can refer to someone being young and/or inexperienced. Horse trainers refer to animals freshly introduced to carrying a rider as being "green-broken". Someone may ride that horse, but it's still a very inexperienced, "new" horse.

Morissette's reference likely means that someone maybe physically young but they have an old soul.

It's about the desegregation of the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) in Oxford, MS and the race riots that broke out in the fall of 1962 on campus following James Meredith's enrollment.
