no trust
can be given freely , it's a valuable commodity
but obviously this is something you
never learned
faith is something that you put in friends and
had i excess morals to lend
i'd let you borrow them but my trust you haven't earned!

we've got a problem
first of all there is no we, i'm detached from you completely
i've got a problem you tell lies to my friends and think it won't get back to me

no bond
could ever seem to make a stable fit in our relationship
but one thing that never comes between us
is honesty
when you've got something to say you always seem to find away
to avoid the truth or instead you avoid me!

we've got a problem first of all there is no we, i'm detached from you completely
i've got a problem you tell lies to my friends and think it won't get back to me

STRAIGHT UP
Is how you'll see me stand,
But it is never in your plans,
To be straight forward,
So instead, you use
DECEIT.
Now I would like to take apart,
What you've been breaking from the start.
I'll remain intact,
I won't be broken in defeat.

We've got a problem?
First of all there is no "we",
I'm detached from you completely.
I've got a problem.
You tell lies to my friends
And think it won't get back to me....

NO TRUST!

    he trusts no one but himself, and sometimes he doesn't care, and sometimes he does. he's the director of his own movie, and no one tells him what to do. he's a loner, but he can't stand being hurt again.

    This is one of the first AFI songs I ever heard, It was on the Cinema Beer Nuts Album...and the video was so great with Davey locked in the trunk of the car and the end where the band kills him....I really dont care that not very many people give thier comments on AFI....I know thier an amazing band, as do AFI themselves....

    since nobody has really said what the song means(to them) ill take a shot: ¿this song is about a guy who is frustrated with his relationship and is going to end it?

    i luv this song!! it is very catchy!!

    "You tell lies to my friends and think it won't get back to me. No bond can ever seem to make a stable fit in our relationship, but one thing that never comes between us is honesty. When you have something to say, you always seem to find a way to avoid the truth or instead, avoid me. Straight up is how you'll see me stand, but it is never in your plans to be straight forward, so instead, you use deceit. "

    soooo true with too many people! why does everything think lies are sooo much better then honesty?? and bcuz everyone lies... people dont believe the honest ones... so i guess it might be better to lie.... i dont kno...

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”

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.
