Now I'm supposed to understand
Don't you think you're asking too much?
What kind of fool do you think I am?
Don't you think you've hurt me enough?

Still you want to be friends
But I don't want to be just friends
So before you start with your sympathy
Just turn around and go

And if he breaks your heart, don't come crying to me
I won't be there anymore
Go ahead and cry your tears
'Cause I'm not gonna dry your tears

I've got hard feelings
When it comes to you and me
And these hard feelings
Just won't let me be
These hard feelings run deep
These hard feelings run deep

I'll be alright, don't you worry about me
I'll take care of myself
The first thing I need is you out of my life
The last thing I need is your help
Sorry I met you (sorry I met you)
I will forget you, someday

I've got hard feelings
When it comes to you and me
And these hard feelings
Just won't let me be
These hard feelings run deep
These hard feelings run deep

I've got hard feelings
When it comes to you and me
And these hard feelings
Just won't let me be
These hard feelings run deep
These hard feelings
Hard feelings
When it comes to you and me

And these hard, hard feelings
Just won't let me be
These hard feelings run deep
These hard feelings

Hard feelings
Just won't let me be
Hard feelings
Hard feelings

    This is, obviously, a break-up song.

    "Still you want to be friends But I don't want to be just friends"

    He obviously does not want to be screwed around anymore by someone who hurt him. I like the demo version the best where the line is "but I don't want to be YOUR friend". Definitely a song I've been listening to a lot. Good riddance to lousy people ;)

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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.
