Please mom, you ground me all the time
I know that I was right all along

And I'm hoping
Remember I'm a kid
I know not what I did
Just having fun

You couldn't wait for something new
And yesterday I thought of you
It left me to think as if I couldn't walk away
It's too late, I fell through

Nothing to lose
A boy who went out when he finished all his chores
Nothing to do
They can't trust me because I blew it once before

Shit dad, please don't kick my ass
I know I've seen you trashed at least one time

Can I blame it on one of my dumb friends?
It's been awhile since I have used that line

You couldn't wait for something new
And yesterday I thought of you
It left me to think as if I couldn't walk away
It's too late, I fell through

Nothing to lose
A boy who went out when he finished all his chores
Nothing to do
They can't trust me because I blew it once before
(Alright)

Nothing to lose
A boy who went out when he finished all his chores
Nothing to do
They can't trust me because I blew it once before

    This song best describes me too. Tom wrote this song about the one time he got drunk at a High School Football game with his friends and one of them fell flat on his face in front of the Dean, and he got exspelled for a year. Yup, that's me...

    What the hell? 'this song sucks big black cock'? Please explain to me how a song can suck cock. If you're gonna have a comment, at least make it half intelligent. Noone will respect your opinions if you make them so ridiculous and pointless. Anyways this song is really good. I love the way he tries to blame the friends...

    sucks a big black cock? thats mature. n e way~ive used the "i'll blame it on my friends" idea way 2 many times. seriously~if u have a smirnoff ice wrapped in a sweatshirt and it drops out onto the kitchen floor (opned and half empty becuz u already drank most of it) DO NOT try to say that yur best friend (who u havent seen since the party u got home from hours ago) made u drink it. all it gets u is grounded and slapped becuz yur parents are as wasted as u. well, thats in my case e way. ahhh....my wonderful 13 year old life.....

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.

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. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
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.
