Every once in a while I see your face, I'm feeling half the man
Then you cup your hands, you throw me away, I'm under
But then everything beneath me fades, I'm feeling half the man
Then you shut your eyes, you close me away, I'm under

I'm alone with these thoughts of mine, people look and tell me justboy
I don't believe in anything, that's the message in your eyes (in your eyes)
I don't believe in anything, that's the message in your eye

I have tried so hard to leave this place, it leaves me under hand
I want to feel your breath here with me, and kiss you

I'm alone with these thoughts of mine, people look and tell me justboy
I don't believe in anything, that's the message in your eyes (in your eyes)
I don't believe in anything, that's the message in your eye

I am (hopin'), through the (dark clouds), light shall break and bring a bright sky
I am hopin', through the (dark clouds), light shall break and bring a bright sky
I am hopin', through the dark clouds, light shall break and bring a bright sky
Light shall break and bring a bright sky

    'i am hoping through the dark clouds light shall break and bring a bright sky' .......may also relate to the desire to get over the feelings that still linger...getting over someone is also like seeing the light or being in a bright sky.

    i think that this song is about a boy who is in love with someone, but she doesnt want him so he despairs and feels worthless and helpless. however he still hopes that she will change her mind

    also, i love the way the song starts all of a sudden, like, just drops u into the song from the intro, but then gets lighter with the guitar and vocals. anyway, i cant describe it but listen to it and u might understand me?

    i don't believe in anything that's the message in your eyes

    I love this hook. It's a really great song, quite obviously about a boy who's in love with a girl who doesn't feel the same way.

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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
