When you left home and moved to Ohio
The summer had come to an end.
My best friend goes, I try to follow,
Running as you disappear.
Stay.

You know how bad this hurts.
It's been three weeks and just gets worse.
Come back to PA.
Forever this time.
Greg's last day is our last chance to be best friends
Until we say "goodbye" and "I'll try to see you when the weather clears.

Then I went home and prayed that tomorrow
You would turn the car right back around.
Evergreen Rd just won't feel the same,
Since your gone.

Greg's last day is our last chance to be best friends
Until we say "goodbye" and "I'll try to see you when the weather clears.
Greg's last day is our last chance to be best friends
Until we say "goodbye" and "I'll try to see you when the weather clears.

    why don't any of you talk about the SONG MEANING?! i mean its ok to talk about other things and all but still.... anyway, its about losing your best friend, and how hard that can be. nothing will be the same until you get them back.

    my best friend left at the beginning of this year, and this song always reminds me of how I felt when she left... she moved to another state... and i fucking miss her so much. All I want is for her to come back home.

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,

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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

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.
