As I stand here and wait for you,
You don't know how I feel.
Guess I'm too shy to let you know.
My heart's in control.
This time I know that everything will be okay.
I don't know what you would think.
I don't know what to expect.
No matter what happens you will be my friend.
I'm not going to mess this up.
I don't want to end with regrets.
I can't stop thinking of you,
Can't get you out of my thoughts.
Can't concentrate,
I'm losing my head over a girl.
I know I'll always love you.
I wish that you felt the same.

    slick shoes are amazing i feel like i can relate to nearly all there songs this one probably more than others though. most of the songs are really good on the same level as the ataris. although none of my freinds have ever heard of them and being in england hardly anyone else has either i still think they rock tho :D

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
