Hello my friend, we meet again
It's been a while, where should we begin?
Feels like forever
Within my heart are memories
Of perfect love that you gave to me
Oh, I remember

When you are with me, I'm free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others, we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice

We've seen our share of ups and downs
Oh, how quickly life can turn around
In an instant
It feels so good to reunite
Within yourself and within your mind
Let's find peace there

'Cause when you are with me, I'm free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others, we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice

I just want to say hello again
I just want to say hello again

'Cause when you are with me, I'm free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others, we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
'Cause when you are with me, I'm free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others, we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice, my sacrifice

(I just want to say hello again)
I just want to say hello again

My sacrifice

    Com'mon guys...this one is not hard. Sometimes, the thing is right in front of you. I suspect that those of you that don't think this song is about a man and his relationship with Christ...well, you are not comfortable with your relationship with Christ. And that's okay...because we all struggle with it, heavan and earth, good and bad.

    But it is quite clear...

    Alright monkey is somewhat right and so is furtado but I think there is more to the song and the video. He is talking about himself and his relationship with God. The video seems is kind of like a modern Noah's Ark story...the flood, the animals and it seems as if him and possibly his family is the only ones being saved. Then when they are on the bus thats when they are on the "ark" The storms over they come out and see the sun shining and live happily ever after.

    Can i go back to EmoChik's comment for a minute, and say that previous comments are very off-topic. this site is about music (hence the "song" in the songmeanings) and not about religion. do you mind if we go back to the music part, and not bring our religious differences here?

    Creed isn't a Christian Band. They just have a lot of faith and talk about it in most actually "All" of there songs. Fallen_Angel

    you are implying that gays are immoral, pedophilistic perverts. being gay doesn't make you some kind of sexual degenerate. i am bisexual, and i don't want to molest children. btw, God loves me just as much, he doesn't care that i'm bi.

    Everyone who tries to find a ratrional meaning or system of life will ultimately fail and will live in despair, the "sickness unto death." Only Christian love can save humanity from itself, Dosteovsky says, but such love cannot be understood by humans. One thing this song could be about, just for the sake of argument, is the suspension of the ethical for the religious, to put it in Kierkegaard's terms. When Abraham led his son Isacc up to the mount to be sacrificed, he did something totally unethical and yet true to God, for God told him to do it. Creed could be talking about forsaking others and their views for a personal relationship with God. The only thing about this I don't like is the note of self-righteousness here. it seems that he pictures himself far above humanity, "above all others", but it is written, "There is none righteous, no, not one" (Romans 3:10), and "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23). Bring yourself back down to earth and follow Jesus' example here.

Album art
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”

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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
Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
