When all our tears have reached the sea
Part of you will live in me
Way down deep inside my heart
The days keep coming without fail
New wind is gonna find your sail
That's where your journey starts

You'll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

Just like the waves down by the shore
We're gonna keep on comin' back for more
'Cause we don't ever want to stop
Out in this brave new world you'll see
Oh the valleys and the peaks
And I can see you on the top

You'll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

Remember me when you're out walking
When snow falls high outside your door
Late at night when you're not sleeping
And moonlight falls across your floor
When I can't hurt you anymore

You'll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

Please remember me

    This song is about a man who has broken up with a significant other, a wife, a longtime girlfriend. Someone who has been with him long enough to leave such an impact that he still wishes to be remembered by that person no matter what.

    "All our tears have reached the sea. (They've both cried over the breakup) Part of you will live in me, Way down deep inside my heart (He still loves her enough that he wants her to be happy) The days keep coming without fail. New wind is gonna find your sail That's where your journey starts. (Time has passed and now she can find new love, she's moved on, maybe he has as well, but he still remembers her and wants her to find love)

    You'll find better love, (than what he had with her) Strong as it ever was, (it being thier love) Deep as the river runs, Warm as the morning sun, But please, remember me. (Find this better love, move on, but keep me in your heart)

    Like the waves down by the shore We're gonna keep on coming back for more. Cause we don't ever wanna stop. Out in this brave new world you'll see Over the valleys and the peaks. And I can see you on the top (No matter what happens, no matter where you go, I'll always remember, "see", you) (the next four lines ask her to remember him when she's lonely and he can't be there for her) Remember me when you're out walking. When snow falls high outside your door. Late at night when you're not sleeping, And moonlight falls across your floor... And I can't hurt you anymore. (admition of failure towards loved one) CHORUS

    I read in an article a few years back that this song is near & dear to Tim's heart because at one time during the beginning of his relationship with Faith Hill, they had some troubled times because of committments, tour schedules, etc. This song is near and dear to my heart because it reminds me of the relationship with my husband. We've been together for 10 years, madly in love but we just aren't meant to be together and it took me that long to finally realize that no matter how much you love someone, doesn't necessarily mean you are meant to be together. We had trying times that pulled us together and broke us apart but we will always remember each other, the positive things we brought to each other and the good times we had.

    This song can be interpreted many ways by each and every human being. It makes no difference what the person who wrote it was thinking. Songs are to provoke thoughts and feelings in the listeners!

    This song makes me cry everytime i hear it. It always makes me think of my friend, he died last year and this song just breaks my heart when I hear it because the last verse is almost the exact lines in the poem that was read at his funeral.

    Well, since no one is really telling us what this songs means to them...I will let you all know what I think it means: He is not worthy of her..in his eyes, I mean. He thinks she can do better than him, kinda keep her options open! Does that make sense?

    Very very sad song. I think it is about someone who feels like they're holding their lover back

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.

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,

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

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.
