Everybody put your hands together
Whooo, mmmm, yeah
Girl I love you so
112, listen

Girl if I told you I love you
That doesn't mean that I don't care, oooh
And when I tell you I need you
Don't you think that I'll never be there, ooooh

[1] - Baby I'm so tired of the way you turn my words into
Deception and lies
Don't misunderstand me when I try to speak my mind
I'm only saying what's in my heart

[2] - Cupid doesn't lie
But you won't know unless you give it a try
Oh baby, true love
won't lie but we won't know unless we give it a try
give it a try

Girl when I ask you to trust me
That doesn't mean that I'm gonna cheat on you
Cuz I'm gonna never do anything to hurt you
Or mislead you, I love you

[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 2]

Ain't no doubt about it
Lord no, I really mean it
I rather die before, before I lie to you
Never wanna leave ya
Ain't no life without you
Never gonna leave, never gonna go, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, ohhhh

[Repeat 2]

[Repeat until fade]

    I was pretty young when this song came out, and very unexperienced. I hadn't been thru relationships and didn't understand the song. I used to ask, "why WOULDNT she believe him if he told her he loved her? And if he asked her to trust him, why would she think that he might be cheating?" Now, looking back I can laugh at my own naivete (is that the word) And I can say that I understand the song, and I can see where he is coming from. I have always liked this song so much, and now that I have experienced life a lil bit, and can find meanings behind the words, I just love it even more!

    There's this guy i like a lot..and i put the these lyrics on my profile, because I wanna be with him for a long time. But I don't think he believes me when I speak my heart."

    You all wanna hear something crazy. This girl was talking about me, that was back in 2003. I never knew she posted this until just now when i was browsing on this site. All the songs and lyrics and comments on this site and I find this one? Just to catch you guys up, we ended up getting together and being together for about 3 years and she was the perfect girlfriend and we were in love. Then I went through this stupid phase and thought that I wanted to go out and try other things and so we broke up about 3 years ago. In the past three years ive dated and hung around other people, other girls, but everyday I regret breaking up with her. She was everything anyone would ask for in a girlfriend. She's moved away now, got another boyfriend, changed her phone number and moved on and I really hope she's happy. Also, eventhough she will never see this comment that I am posting now, I still feel it necessary to say that I do miss this girl and am truly sorry for every mean thing I did to her. I remember walking down her stairs the night we broke up hearing her crying upstairs, there's so many times that I see that moment in my head and just wish I could go back to that very moment and just run back up the stairs and apologize and just work everything out. Ok, just thought i'd share that.

    man. I remember the first time I heard this song. I was in high school too :) I went out and got the CD immediately and I listened to it everynight as I went to sleep. The whole CD reminds me of all the crushes I had freshman year and what a sick love puppy I was. Their second CD reminds me of my crushes from junion year. I used to be the biggest 112 fan. I miss their ballads (sigh).

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."

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”
