Sunday For Seventeen Years I Have Let This Go, I've Let This Go
No One Cares Now Not Even I Now That This Familiar Place Has Never Once Felt Like Home

So When You Think That You Have The Right To Say
Why Doesn't Your Heart Burn Like Ours?
I'll Let The Ashes Go, This Wound You Can't Replace
No One Including You Cared To Comfort The Flame

But When Voices Sing And Lift To Promises That I've Never Seen
Then And Only Then Do I Truly Feel Home In This Hope

So Befriend Me And Smile To My Face, I Swear I'm Lying This Time
I've Never Been So Far Away When These Regrets Are Worthless To Me
And God Why Do You Blame Them? I'm Begging You To Forgive Me

So When You Think That You Have The Right To Say
Why Doesn't Your Heart Burn Like Ours?
I'll Let The Ashes Go, This Wound You Can't Replace
No One Cared To Comfort The Flame

But When Voices Sing And Lift To Promises That I've Never Seen
Then And Only Then Do I Feel Home In A Hope That Will Embrace The Sky

So When You Think That You Have The Right To Say
Why Doesn't Your Heart Burn Like Ours?
I'll Let The Ashes Go, This Wound You Can't Replace
No One Cared To Comfort The Flame

Cause You Can't See Me So Don't Pretend Like I Owe It To You Like You Saved Me
It's Not Of Your Hands I Owe Nothing To You
You Never Reached Out When I Needed Anyone

More Featured Meanings

Album art
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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
