Don't you wanna know what it's like to feel like you have people that you call friends?
Don't you wanna once follow through and prove to us all you're capable of doing something good?
Everyone can see both your faces.
I'm just about done with my last attempt.
Once again this erases the F, R, and I and leaves you alone in the END.
It's sad, I don't feel bad, I have enough things to worry about myself.
I know you've had it rough, that's no excuse and I can't take anymore.
I'm having a hard time dealing with the fact that you breathe every day.
I want you to know how I'm feeling.
At this time I have nothing to say.
You and me are on separate sides of the river
Without a way of making it back.
The bridge was ashes a long time ago.
Can't you see it's not working?
There's no one left around
And that's not how it's supposed to be.
I just can't figure out
It's kinda sad but it would not be that upsetting if I never saw you again.
There's some things that I will not be forgetting
And I'll keep them with me 'till the end

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
