(How)
How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
(Oh, yeah)
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before

I'm doing all I can to try and understand
Why my feelings faded away
She's been nothin' but good to me
I don't wanna hurt her but I must be free
I can't stay in this love, how do I say goodbye

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
(No)
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before
(I don't wanna be here)

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before

She pretends she cannot see
The love is gone from me
She carries on as if it is what it was before
But I don't love her anymore

I have to let her know
That I must let her go
I can't stay in this life
How do I say goodbye

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
(I don't wanna be here)
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before
(Oh, girl)

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before

Oh, I don't know what to do about it
Gotta tell her, gotta tell her, gotta tell her
Oh, there's no way to go around it
I've got to tell her now but I don't know how

(Listen, listen, baby)
(Listen closely, baby)
I just gotta tell you
All the love we once had is through

(Listen, listen, baby)
(Listen closely, baby)
(Closely)
I don't wanna be with you anymore
(Anymore)
I can't stay, I can't stay
(I can't stay)

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
(I don't wanna be here)
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before
(I don't wanna be here)

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
(I don't wanna be here)
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before
(I don't)

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
(I don't know)
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before

How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
(I don't wanna be here)
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before

How do I tell her

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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"

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.

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."

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
