Know all about, yeah, 'bout your reputation
And now it's bound to be a heartbreak situation
But I can't help it if I'm helpless every time that I'm where you are
You walk in and my strength walks out the door
Say my name and I can't fight it any more
Oh, I know I should go
But I need your touch just too damn much.

Lovin' you, yeah, isn't really something I should do
Shouldn't wanna spend my time with you, yeah
Well, I should try to be strong
But baby, you're the right kind of wrong
Yeah, baby, you're the right kind of wrong.

Might be a mistake, a mistake I'm makin'
But what you're givin' I am happy to be takin'
'Cause no one's ever made me feel the way I feel when I'm in
Your arms.

They say you're somethin' I should do without
They don't know what goes on when the lights go out
There's no way to explain
All the pleasure is worth all the pain.

Lovin' you, yeah, isn't really something I should do
Yeah, hey
Shouldn't wanna spend my time with you, yeah
Well, I should try to be strong
But, baby, you're the right kind of wrong
Yeah, baby, you're the right kind of wrong.

I should try to run, but I just can't seem to
'Cause every time I run, you're the one I run to
Can't do without what you do to me
I don't care if I'm in too deep
Yeah, hey, yeah.

Know all about, yeah, 'bout your reputation
And now it's bound to be a heartbreak situation
But I can't help it if I'm helpless every time that I'm where you are.

You walk in and my strength walks out the door
Say my name and I can't fight it any more
Oh, I know I should go
But I need your touch just too damn much.

Hey, yeah -
Lovin' you, yeah, isn't really something I should do
Shouldn't wanna spend my time with you, yeah
Well, I should try to be strong
(I should try to be strong)
But, baby, you're the right kind of wrong
(Right kind of wrong)
Baby, you're the right kind of wrong
(Baby, you're the right kind of wrong)
Yeah, baby, you're the right kind of wrong.

    This song totally means a lot to me since i am in a situation like this now. I really like a guy a lot and we do stuff occasionally but everyone tells me he is no good for me. But all the pain that he inflicts on me doesnt matter because he makes me so happy. The times he makes me happy matter much more than the times he makes me sad and others just don't realize that but this song explains it well.

    i really like the line "i should try to run but i just can't seem to/ cuz everytime i run you're the one i run to"

    its so true; when we're in relationships like this, you try to escape cuz everyone tells you it'd be better for you, but you just cant leave cuz you need him too much. this song comes a lil too close to my relationship right now.

    This song basically sums up my entire relationship with a boy... "You walk in and my strength walks out the door Say my name and I can't fight anymore Oh I know I should go But I need your touch just too damn much " It even has my friend opinion and how I feel towards that ("They say you're something I should do without They don't know what goes on when the lights go out There's no way to explain All the pleasure is worth all the pain")

    All the pain of not knowing how he feels is just worth being with him.

    Oh and this is my favorite song!

    A girl sang this song in front of our school at some assembly and me and a few guys got together and actually played the entire song for her. I was on lead guitar and I also sang the song with her. It was great. We even sang again at a football game "Heads Carolina, Tails California". Not appropriate for a football game I know, but we had fun doing it. But this song is really good and I like it. Especially the movie.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
Album art
Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.
Album art
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.
