I've lived with this longing for over a year
She's always with me, she's always there
My first thought on waking, last before sleeping
And I just can't see I'll ever be free of her
And I just can't see myself ever thinking it's not
A waste we're apart

How I wish she couldn't live without me
The way that she now can
And the way I can't give up hope completely
What does she make of that?
I guess it must try
I guess it must try
Her patience so
But I hope that as well
She understands how
How I can't let go

And there are still times, still times when I
Think that she only will save me
And I know that's hardly a fair thing to think
I know how unfair that is of me
Of me, of me

I want to be happy again
Something that she made me
I want to be happy again
And I'm so afraid I never will be

I found and I lost the one
I found and I lost the one
I found and I lost the one

I've lived with this longing for over a year
She's always with me, she's always there
My first thought on waking, the last before sleeping
And I just can't see I'll ever be free of her

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.
