How y'all doing out there tonight?
Yes, I love you too
I just wanna talk to the ladies tonight
For all you ladies that done had your heart broken
I done had my heart broken too, so I can relate, ya know
So if it's ok with you, I'm just gonna break it down for the fellas
That don't know that they can break a women's heart
Alright? So check it out, uh

I gave you all of my love, all to you
And you don't appreciate the things that I do (things that I do)
I gave you all of my time, uh, 'cause you blew my mind
I let you do me wrong 'cause love had me so blind (I once was)

I once was young, but I'm all grown up and
I know 'bout love and I used to love you
You tried to play me and then persuade me
I still remember the pain you gave me
I can't believe you, I've gotta leave you
I'm packing up and you can hit the road jack
You can take these things that you gave me
'Cause I'm never coming back

All I wanted was a little love
But you chose to hang out all night with the boys
So what are you saying? Am I wasting my time?
(Quit wasting my time)
Trying to claim something that's not even mine (I once was)

I once was young, but I'm all grown up and
I know 'bout love and I used to love you (yes, I did)
You tried to play me and then persuade me (yes, you did)
I still remember the pain you gave me
I can't believe you (gotta leave you, baby)
I've gotta leave you
I'm packing up and you can hit the road jack
You can take these things that you gave me
'Cause I'm never coming back

Why you hurt me? (Why?)
Why you hurt me?
Why you hurting me so bad?
Gave you my time, you played with my mind (gave you time)
Why you wanna make me sad?

Why you hurt me?
Why you hurt me?
Why you hurting me so bad? (Why'd you hurt me so?)
Gave you my time, you played with my mind
Why you wanna make me sad?

Thank you, thank you and God bless
Ayo, but before I get outta here
I want all my ladies on the left side
I want y'all to sing with me for a little bit, alright?
Alright, check it out
Say hey, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing, hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, hey, hey

Yeah, y'all like that right? Yeah ,I like that
Ayo, but now I'ma walk on over here to this right side
And I wanna see if they can get it as loud as the left side, alright?
Alright now right side, come on
Alright, I wanna hear you say, uh
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, hey, hey
Sing, hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, hey, hey
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, hey, hey
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, hey, ayy

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
