You say you've been used before,
Whole lot of love then it's out the door.
And you swore you'd be used again no more, no more.

Then you got on your feet again,
And come to you like a long lost friend.
They say you're wearing a bullet proof heart,
While I wear my heart on my sleve.

Baby believe, I would never hurt you.
Baby believe, cause my love will not desert you.
Baby believe you know you gotta get another guy.
I'm down on my knees.

Open your heart, you made me love again,
I won't let them take your love from me.

You know that I've been hurt too,
It's just your hearts turned black and blue.
There ain't no use in talkin' about it,
You know how hard it is to say.

I wanna love you girl, I wanna show you my world.
Stop hidin' the key to your heart,
Baby let me in, let me in.

Can't you see, I won't hurt you baby, listen to me.
Can't you see, I need you girl come with me.
Can't you see, oh through all the tears that you cry,
Close your eyes.

Open your heart, you made me love again,
I won't let them take your love from me.
Open your heart, you made me love again,
I won't let them take your love from me.

Can't you see, I won't hurt you baby, listen to me.
Can't you see, I need you girl come with me.
Can't you see, oh through all the tears that you cry,
Close your eyes.

Open your heart (I want to love you girl)
You made me love again (I want to show you my world)
I won't let them take your love, I won't let them take your love,
I won't let them take your love, from me.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.

This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
