Under your wing
You shelter me from night
You warm the cold and bring
On the sun
Under your wing
My dreams are all made real
And the pain I sometimes feel
Is gone
Under your wing
I face a brighter truth
And the passing of my youth
Seems like a new beginning
Under your wing
The madness all makes sense
And the emptiness of losing
Can feel like winning

Look out of your window
To a world that's going cold
See faces tired and old and
Look out at the city
To a world that's going blind
I hope tonight will find me
Under your wing

Under your wing
The dark will be my friend
I'll never fear an end
To living
Under your wing
I'll face the lies of life
And though I hurt inside
I'll be forgiving

Look out of your window
To a world that's going cold
See faces tired and old and
Look out at the city
To a world that's going blind
I hope tonight will find me
Under your wing

Just look around and see
All life's dishonesty
Anger hurt and tears
That's how the world can be
The people on the street
The lost and lonely child
That man without a smile
It could be me

Under your wing
The heartaches that I share
My troubles and my cares
Are easier to bare
Under your wing
When it all falls down
I only have to look around
And you're there
And I know that
One day you may be gone
And I'll have to carry on
With your strength inside me
And I'll try
To do things for myself
But for now give me a light
To guide me

Look out of your window
And as I'm growing old
I'll never find your kisses cold and
Look out at the city
And before my heart will break
I hope tonight you'll take me
Under your wing

I'm gonna leave it all behind me
For I hope tonight will find me
Under your wing

I'm gonna leave it all behind me
For I hope tonight will find me
Under your wing

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.

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."

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.
