Madonna – Oh Father Lyrics 6 years ago
This song really fits my experience with my father. In fact, the second verse I can relate to:

Seems like yesterday
I lay down next to your boots and I prayed
For your anger to end
Oh Father I have sinned

One time when I was a teenager, we were building the deck and I had to shovel rocks. But I wasn't doing it the way my dad wanted to and he knocked me to the ground and kicked me in the back with his boots.
But like the verse said:

Maybe someday
When I look back I'll be able to say
You didn't mean to be cruel
Somebody hurt you too

My Grandpa was 1000x worse than my dad and he is the main reason why he's so aggressive.

Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees Lyrics 6 years ago
And it wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out

If i could be who you wanted
If i could be who you wanted all the time, all the time

I played this song while I was contemplating suicide. I was (still) facing a lot of heartache: my asperger's is a significant obstacle to my social life, my dad physically and verbally abuses me, and the women i love are nice but are shallow, materialistic and don't love me back. By august 26, these things wore me out and i finally tried to kill myself because i felt like no one will ever love me enough to stop hurting me like my dad or love me for who i am. If i could be who she wanted me to be, i feel that women would finally accept me. this shallowness of our society just destroys good hearted people who may not be gorgeous but have a lot to offer. this song is easily one of my favorite songs but it is also one of the saddest songs for this reason.

The Fray – How To Save A Life Lyrics 6 years ago
"Where did I go wrong?
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness"

To me, it reminds me of the pain I still go through for i feel i am losing a friend.
I fell in love with my best friend and she rejected me. Soon after due to the influence of alcohol and other very real pains (dad abusing me, aspergers), I tried to commit suicide. She hasn't talked to me since the incident, but she said she would call me back when she was ready. It's been almost a month and half. I still haven't heard back from her. My other friend told me to forget about her friendship. But I won't give up on her, because she is one of the best friends I ever had.

Eagles – Try And Love Again Lyrics 6 years ago
I bought this album shortly after a girl I really liked rejected me. I have never dated anyone before (still haven't dated anybody before). I have Asperger's which greatly reduces my chances to find dates because of my social awkwardness. This song reminds me of two streams of thought: 1) After loving someone as wonderful as her and being rejected by her, can I learn to love again? 2) Because of my asperger's and being unable to find someone, is it worth trying to love someone if i can't be loved in return.

Carole King – Way Over Yonder Lyrics 7 years ago
To me, it has two meanings.
1) It can mean finding tranquility and inner peace.
2) It can mean eternal paradise or Heaven.

I lean towards tranquility, but it's just the feel of the song reminds me of a gospel. I absolutely love the song, it's actually my favorite song from the album Tapestry. (even more than it's too late or I Feel The Earth Move)
