We\'re at the top of the world, you and I. We\'ve got a lot of
Time and it sure feels right. Cause you reached in your pocket
And pulled out a pass that says you can take me anywhere. Sha
La la la. Sha la la la la la la. We\'re on the top of the world,
Here tonight. We\'ve got a lot of time and it sure feels right.
Cause I\'m up here running behind you. I\'m up here running in
[repeat]

    It's like... a song that talks about taking things and people for granted. They're nothing without the person, the person's nothing without them. I like how TJT always uses "us" or "we" in their songs, not "I" or "you." Rawk.

    This song is totally awesome. I didn't think too mush of it at the begining but now I'm totally for it. I love it too death and I listen to it a lot along with the whole CD! The only part of this song that I really don't care for is the chanting in the back round at the end. I just think that it's not quit that Emo and I just don't care for it too much. But besides that factor of mine I think that this song is a pretty good song. I also agree with MestUpNFG because I do think that this song is talking about the things that you take for granted like people and you don't relize it till they're gone. I love The Juliana Thoery! Luv this song also! HeHe!:) .:~aMbEr*

    hey yellowcardxchick...how can something not be a part of emo? emo=emotion, and if something is emotional then how can it not be emo? can you define exactly what emo is? its like saying a cool bass riff isn't part of pop or something along those lines...

    well since theyre a christian band, maybe its to God? "Now you're gone, it's plain to see we're nothing." but i doubt it cuz some of the lyrics r like disrespectful if it was to God.

    I agree with Yellowcard, It is possibly to god...But it reminds me of my youth choir leader. He started out youth group with 4 people... today it has over 30. Then because of one negative comment he thinks he isnt wanted anymore...the person who started our group just walking out because of one persons comment. i am not mad at him...but the youth choir realizes that with our singing...we r nothing without him

    i truly dig this song...especially the chanting. if bothering to debate whether or not something were 'emo' or not, i would have to say the chanting would cause this song to qualify as more 'emo' because it adds to the 'emo'tional initensity. but debating what qualifies as emo or not, is pointless.

    case and point: this song is very intense and wonderful.

    chant on.

    Okay, The Juliana Theory may not be a 'Christian' band, but some of it's members ARE Christian. Also, Brett used to be in Zao, which is an openly christian band. So, they may be secular, but they ARE christians, and may have according themes in their music.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
Album art
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.
