Girl I love you and I apologize
Still I don't know the reason so I, so I can tell you why, I
Hurt the one I love
Made you cry
And girl I know that I messed up and it hurts me deep inside
Oh I wish I could go back in time
So I could fix up my mistake
Make everything alright
Girl I know just what is on your mind
Wouldn't blame you if you hated me for the rest of my life
Ooh baby I
Didn't mean to hurt you
to make you cry
Oh, girl you know I really love you
And it hurts me deep inside to know that the person that just hurt you
made you cry
Is one who really really loves you and it hurts me deep inside
How could I hurt the one I love? Whoa oh yeah
Girl I'm sorry
Now I do realize
It'll never be the same
No matter how hard I try
'cause I, hurt the one I love
How could I let you down?
And there's no other reason why you, why you just fell to the ground
Well, oh I wish I could go back in time
So I could fix up my mistake
Make everything alright yeah
And girl I know, what's on your mind
Couldn't blame you if you hated me for the rest of my life
I didn't mean
I didn't mean to make you cry
I didn't mean to hurt you girl
(really really love you)
I didn't mean to hurt you
Oh to make you cry girl
You know I love you
I really love you
Girl! You know I love you
You know I love you
Always thinking 'bout you
Baby won't you be my love
I really didn't mean to go and hurt you
Didn't mean to hurt you

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

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.

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.
