Today you told me that I'd hate you forever
I can't believe what's really going on
Somehow I knew that you felt guilty for something
But tell me why you do this to me
Today you told me that I'd hate you forever
I can't believe that you'd wreck my life

I was betrayed, how can you say that you feel sorry inside
It's never staying, losing close friends
I've gone away, you make me stay but I can't tell it from lies
I've gone insane, losing close friends

Today I made the worst mistake
I put my trust into someone I don't know
And now I know because you've done everything possible to me
Made me so upset
And now I know just who to trust because you're laying in bed
You're thinking 'bout all that fucked up shit

I was betrayed, how can you say that you feel sorry inside
It's never staying, losing close friends
I've gone away, you make me stay but I can't tell it from lies
(Lies)
I've gone insane, losing close friends

I'm so weak
The closeness of your skin
The smell of this place
Makes me go insane

I

You make me go insane
You make me go insane

I was betrayed, how can you say that you feel sorry inside
It's never staying, losing close friends
I've gone away, you make me stay but I can't tell it from lies
I've got insane, losing close friends

Losing close friends
Losing close friends

    adema is defenatley creative with the poetic lyrics of hard life that they write about. i can almost always relate to their songs. the song was written to explain how they feel about someone that seems to have caused a lot of heartbreak. adema maybe writting to blame themselves for trusting someone they shouldn't have, "Today I made the worst mistake I put my trust into someone I don't know"

    this song is about someone who ut trust into a close friend, almost like a lover. the close friend took advantage of this trust and broke it. this person finally told them that they had betryed them and that they are sorry. They hope that this person regets their mistake and hopes that they think about it non stop. The 5th verse down explains how hard it is not the remember someone that was once special to you.

    Trust is one of the hardest things to get from ppl now. Trust is the basis of all relationships. If you lose trust, you feel as if everything is going down and you want to die...well, maybe not SO dramatic, but you should know what I mean, ;)

    I think this is a song about him being betrayed from one of his best friends. And now that he lost this friend, he doesn't know what to do anymore. And I know how he feels, because I have had a lot of friends that are fakell fake. They turn on you all the time, and you really can't trust anyone.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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”

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
