I remember what seems like yesterday
couldn't hear your voice but I knew you were there
you were always listening, listening to every word I'd say
your heart was fading and I wasn't there

you were at the other end couldn't speak but I knew what you'd say
couldn't hear your voice but I could hear your heart say
I'm gonna see you in a little while

CHORUS
when I die I'll see something beautiful
come and see me sometime
may the heavens hear all I have
I'm countin down, countin down the days

you're the one who taught me how to listen, how to listen
now I'm waiting for the day, the day to come
when I, when I will be with you
I know where you went, I know where you are
I know who you're with cause you're just like Him.
I'm gonna see you in a little while

CHORUS

echo in me, echo in me
every day every day
that goes by without you
that goes by without you

goodbye, I love you
come and see me sometime

    This song helps me a lot, because my Grandpa died a few years back, and I miss him like crazy. I'm countin down the days till I see him again.

    My grandpa died shortly after Christmas this year. I think about him when I hear this song. He was fading so fast. I can't wait to see him healthy, restored again.

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
