Anyone who ever held you
Would tell you the way I'm feeling
Anyone who ever wanted you
Would try to tell you what I feel inside
The only thing I ever wanted
Was the feeling that you ain't faking
The only one you ever thought about
Wait a minute, can't you see that I

Wanna fall from the stars
Straight into your arms, I
I feel you, I hope you comprehend

For the man who tried to hurt you
He's explaining the way I'm feeling
For all the jealousy I caused you
States the reason why I'm trying to hide
As for all the things you taught me
It sends my future into clearer dimensions
You'll never know how much you hurt me
Stay a minute, can't you see that I

Wanna fall from the stars
Straight into your arms, I
I feel you, I hope you comprehend

Too many hearts are broken
A lover's promise never came with a maybe
So many words are left unspoken
The silent voices are driving me crazy
After all the pain you caused me
Making up could never be your intention
You'll never know how much you hurt me
Stay, can't you see that I

Wanna fall from the stars
Straight into your arms, I
I feel you, I hope you comprehend, I

Wanna fall from the stars
Straight into your arms, I
I feel you, I hope you comprehend

    I think it's about the guy cheating on the girl he actually loves. And now he's trying to tell her how much she means to him. He's getting hurt by her because she's breaking up with him. The last verse says that she's probably been saying hurtful things to him and saying that 'maybe' they'll get back together to which he says 'A lover's promise never came with a maybe' and she isn't really ready to be with him anymore. He keeps asking her not to leave, to 'wait' and see how he feels about her and 'stay' and not leave him.. I love this song. My ex cheated on me and the way he'd beg me to take him back made this song come to mind everytime. Good thing that's over :p

    Mick Hucknall takes a simple soul tune and makes it truly awe inspiring. Makes me wonder why he isn't as well known as Steve Perry from Journey. He is a legit "The Voice". He conveys the pain and loss left when the ride is over. You can literally feel the hole in his heart. Kudos.

    She has cheated on him but he can't forget her because he needs her.

    i think that this song is about a conversation between the two lovers speaking to eachother, perhaps for the last time. the first stanza is her speaking to him and then the last two are from him. he realizes he is losing her and finally wants her for good. she has finally given up though, yet tells him maybe...and, that "maybe" really hurts. i think through all the times she saw or knew he was with other women, would drive her crazy. she finally realized she is worth more and the maybe really cuts deep for him.

    After watching the video to this song, which I do like the music, it is obviously a Satanic song. Watch the video then listen to the words. How can anybody not see this? I will never listen to the song again!

    My Interpretation

    I don't think this is a clear cut song and I think embodies a relationship.

    There is a lot of complex emotions in relationships. "The feeling that you ain't faking" can represent either insecurity or a feeling of being in love with someone who is disingenuous, which sits well with the "a lover's promise never came with a maybe". "After all the pain you caused me. Making up could never be your intention". There is a feeling of being disingenuous again.

    He tried to make her feel jealous or lash out out of hurt, as almost a response to the feeling he felt inside. Then there is regret at making her feel jealous. Maybe as he tried to cling to the relationship and reflecting on whether he was at fault.

    I've been there, to love, and to feel hurt, to cheat and emotionally distance yourself, to regret. To wish deep down to be loved but not feeling that. It captivates a very complex relationship and set of feelings.

This is one of my favorite songs. https://fnfgo.io

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
