I was young and didn't have no where to run
I needed to wake up and see what's in front of me
There has to be a better way, sing it again now
Better way to show I'm grateful

So I thought up this song to show my appreciation for lovin' me so long
You don't know how much you mean to me
'Cause even though when times got rough, you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)

When I felt I had enough you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)
Wenk, wenk, wenk, wenk, bop
Wenk, wenk, wenk, wenk, bop
Wenk, wenk, wenk, wenk, bop
Wenk, wenk, wenk, wenk, bop bop

All through my life I knew that you'd be my world
Knowing every where I go, things you taught me, they would show
So many times and changes you've seen me through
I sure 'nough couldn't have survived without you, you

And so I thought up this song to show my appreciation for lovin' me so long
You don't know how much you mean to me
'Cause even though when times got rough, you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)

When I felt I had enough you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)
'Cause even though when times got rough, you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)
When I felt I had enough you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)

'Cause even though when times got rough, you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)
When I felt I had enough you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)

'Cause even though when times got rough, you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)
When I felt I had enough you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)

'Cause even though when times got rough, you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)
When I felt I had enough you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)

'Cause even though when times got rough, you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)
When I felt I had enough you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)

'Cause even though when times got rough, you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)
When I felt I had enough you never turned away
You were right there and I thank you (thank you)

    One of the few rare fast paced Boyz II Men songs. This song always puts me in a good mood and it makes me feel alive. I love the harmonizing in this song as well!

Step
Ministry
Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.
