My friends say you're so into me
And that you need me desperately
They say you say we're so complete

But I need to hear it straight from you
If you want me to believe it's true
I've been waiting for so long it hurts
I want to hear you say the words, please

Don't, don't let me be the last to know
Don't hold back, just let it go
I need to hear you say
You need me all the way
Oh, if you love me so
Don't let me be the last to know

Ooh yeah, baby

Your body language says so much
Yeah, I feel it in the way you touch
But 'til you say the words it's not enough
Come on and tell me you're in love, please

Don't, don't let me be the last to know
Don't hold back, just let it go
I need to hear you say
You need me all the way
Oh, if you love me so
Don't let me be the last to know

Come on baby, come on darling, ooh yeah
Come on, let me be the one
Come on now, oh yeah

I need to hear you say (I need to hear you say)
You love me all the way (you love me all the way)
And I don't want to wait another day
I want to feel the way you feel
Oh, come on

Don't, (don't) don't let me be the last to know (just let me be the one)
Don't (don't) hold back (hold back), just let it go (just let it go)
I need to hear you say (I need to hear you say)
You need me all the way (you need me all the way)
So, baby, if you love me
Don't let me be the last to know

    Ok, I guess Ill be the first one to actually analyze the meaning of this song. = / This song was written by Shania Twain and her husband (ex-husband?), I can actually imagine Shania singing this. I bet people wouldve liked it better. But anyway, Ive been in this situation before. A guy likes a girl and its obvious to everyone, but her coz she needs him to give her a direct answer as to what status they are in.

    I don't know why everytime I hear one of her damn songs ('cuz I don't even listen to it) I get a terrible desire to jump into an active volcano, a lake full of crocodiles or whatever would kill me

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.

Album art
Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
