I don't know just how this happened,
I didn't think it ever could,
I'm the author of sappy love songs,
Trading in my bachelorhood.
Something snapped deep inside me,
Something that somebody said,
I felt the brush of angels wings then,
Your voice echoed in my head.

Chorus:
Ugly Day the sun is shining,
Every cloud's got a silver lining.
Ugly day the skies are blue,
Now every day is ugly without you.

You're the one pure thing,
That I've always prayed for.
Scales are falling from my eyes,
I must have been so blind before.
I would lie down on the street,
To keep the dust off of your feet,
I would kneel each time I kissed you,
Anything Christie I miss you.

Today was an ugly one,
Just like all the others.
All the flowers and the birds,
Making me feel smothered.
I would lie down on the street,
To keep the dust off your feet,
I would kneel each time I kissed you,
Anything Christie I miss you.

    Okay, so he gave an outline of the breakup on the new DVD. She was living somewhere else out of the country I believe and she had grown emotionally distant and one day she called and didn't want to continue the relationship. So yeah. It's sad.

    I believe Christie was Reese's fiance at the time... yet they are no longer engaged, it was broken off. At least, this is what I think. I'm far from knowledgable of FIF bio stuff. I'm somewhat new to their music.

    Blast! I had a whole reply written up and such, and apparantly it only put up the first part... lemme try to recreate it... "uh... yeah, torska, that's it. /sarcasm Anyway, from what I've heard, Reese was engaged (I guess her name was Christie, judging by the lyrics) and like the day before (that could have been an exaggeration by my friend) she called him up and said she never wanted to see him again. Ouch. Also, he also wrote another song about it called Independence Day for the Brave Saint Saturn side project. There might be another song or two about it, too tired to think right now, so, uh... yeah."

    Christie is a girl Reese proposed to, She agreed. They were engaged, then she started having second thoughts, so she broke it off. Reese went into this depression and wrote and wrote and wrote. this song, along with Hurricanes is a song he wrote after the loss of his would-be wife, Christie.

    this song, along with almost every brave saint saturn song, and with quite a few FIF songs, helps me realize and admire reese and how mature he is in his walk. he always seems to turn the bad situations around into either a comedy (blue comb '78) or a happy song like this one and independence day (BSS), or even mature songs by brave saint saturn like two twenty nine, gloria, and under bridges.

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.

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.
