You tell me that you're leaving
And I'm trying to understand
I had myself believing
I should take it like a man
But if you gotta go then you gotta know
That it's killing me
And all the things I never seem to show
I gotta make you see

Girl it's been so long, (tell me)
How could it be
One of us knows the two of us don't belong
In each others company
It hurts so much inside, your telling me goodbye
You wanna be free
And knowin' that you're gone and leavin' me behind
I gotta make you see
I gotta make you see
I gotta make you see

I still love you
I still love you
I really, I really love you
I still love you

People tell me
I should win at any cost
But now I see as the smoke clears away
The battle has been lost

I see it in your eyes
You never have to lie
I'm out of your life
Tonight I'll dream away and you can still be mine
But I'm dreamin' a lie
Dreamin' a lie
Makes me wanna die

'Cause I still love you
I still love you
Baby, baby I love you
I still love you

And when I think of all the things you'll never know
There's so much left to say
'Cos girl, now I see the price of losing you
Will be my half to pay
My half to pay
Each and every day
Hear what I say

I still love you
I still love you
I really, I really love you
I still love you
Baby, baby, I love you
I love you
I really, I really love you

    This is one of the best Kiss songs ever and one of the best power ballads of all time! The drums are heavy and the guitar intro and solo by Vincent is awesome!

    All about losing someone you love!

    About not knowing what you have untill it's gone, eventhough the girl could have dumped him in the worse way or cheated on him... he got his 'hell to pay'

    Great power ballad. One of my favorite.

    Speaking of Vinnie Vincent, I saw him in concert once. He opened for Iron Maiden. He's an amazing guitar player but he's all flash and no substance. That's why he didn't make it with Kiss.

    This is one of two songs Paul wrote about Donna Dixon, whom Paul dated in the early 1980's and left for future Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd. Paul discusses this relationship at length in his 2014 memoir "Face the Music."

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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,

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
