Wake up this mornin it's a dreary day
I think I'll stay inside
Cause I been down I can't help thinkin about the way
You always left your shoes untied
It's funny how all those little things you did
Stand out clearest in my mind
The way you always mixed the darks in with the lights
You almost never pressed rewind

But you were all I ever needed
I thought I had done all that I could
Girl, with all the pain you brought me
In the end you did me good
So I'm hopin that we
Can forget to remember
Those hurtful words we said
That cold night last December
That maybe we could be friends
Maybe we could be friends

Starin at the wall there's only empty space
But all our pictures use to hang
I turn on the radio and hey what do you know
I hear that song you always sang

You were all I ever needed
Thought I had done all that I could
Girl, with all the pain you brought me
In the end you did me good
So I'm hopin that we
Can forget to remember
Those hurtful words we said
That cold night last December
When maybe we could be friends
Maybe we could be friends

But you were all I ever needed
I thought I had done all that I could
Girl, with all the pain you brought me
Still in the end you did me good
And I'm hopin that we
Can forget to remember
Those hurtful words we said
That cold night last December
And maybe we could be friends
If it's all right I'd like to come over
And see how you have been
If you would like I was thinkin
Maybe we could start again
Maybe we could start again

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
