this isn't about you
or the life she's lead through you
just every passing day
leaves me wondering what is really true
expecting to find you
sleeping soundly through and through
sadness comes misplaced
and ends are means by which to uncover truth
happiness will come
when you are with the one
who can take you to places you never were but always knew
i'm coming for the ride
and you say it's too safe inside
you cannot realize
it's taking time
i'm taking it in stride
i'm sure it's safer inside
you just can't realize
but you're such a person
wake up every morning
every morning with her name in your head
you can survive
but you say
i'm not half what i wish-i was so much back then
there is no end
and no room for pretend
feeling only this
i cannot fathom it
there's no escape from uncertain fate there is no excuse
why did this happen to you
can our lives be made up from what's been left in time
you're feeling time
crushing at the spine
and you're tired
and i'm tired
we're so tired
yeah you're tired inside
you just can't realize
what's wrong
or what it's like to be something on
you've come a long way
and i know everything feels gone
will you see this through
or will you say it's through
everything seems so gone to you

    well im not sure exactly what this song means, but it sounds like the author is talking to his friend who is crazy about this girl...just saying how the guy is so involved in the drama and how hes tired of it and wishes it was the same as before....something like that

    Does anybody know what they sing at the end of the song? Because it isn't on any lyrics that i've seen. If someone could help me out, that would be great.

    I dunno what they REALLY say at the end and I'm pretty sure it's not what I'm about to say, but it sounds like something about rocky roads to you, but I doubt that's it lol

    Jesus, this has been bugging me forever but thanks to people on this webpage posting that it was a cover to a KISS song, I was able to figure out WHICH KISS song it was. "God Gave Rock and Roll to You," which coincidently is the jist of what they sing at the end:

    God gave rock and roll to you Gave rock and roll to you Gave rock and roll to everyone.

    God gave rock and roll to you Gave rock and roll to you Put it in the heart of everyone

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.
