it isn't just me
that wants to be here by your side
and I know
it isn't just me
that wants to be next to your side
and I know
I only want to hold you
is that asking way too much
I only want to feel you

you're so far away
I guess I'll believe that you care
and I think
the things that you said
keep running around in my head
and I know
I only want to trust you
you lied to me before
I don't know if I can trust you
in time I'll know for sure

it's only been three days
since I have seen your face
I don't think I can wait three more
I know that I can't wait

the static on the phone
makes you so far away
I watch the clock tick by
you haven't called today

it isn't just me
that wants to be here by your side
and I know
it isn't just me

and then I fall apart
waiting for your call
you don't tell me how you feel
you leave me in the dark
I guess I blame myself
for staying here with you
I just want to hear the words
you say you need me too

    this is a hidden track off "hang-ups"... very soft and melodic, with a harmonica and a spanish-sounding guitar. kind of un-characteristic of goldfinger. i love the lyrics.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
