Darlin', I love you, I love you
Let's make it clear
I don't know what your friends have been tellin' you
But my heart is sincere

Well darlin', I need you, I need you
It's only the truth
And I swear I'd go out of my mind
With the thought of my lovin' you

Well, I can't tell you how to feel
But the one thing that I'm sure about
Girl, you'll never find nothin' as real

He'll never love you
Not like I love you
He'll never treat you like the lady you are
Who you are
He'll never know you
Not like I know you
He'll never be real, he'll never be true
And you'll never feel like you do in my arms
Not the way I love you

Now darlin', I know things ain't perfect
I'm not 'bout to lie
And I know I ain't been quite the angel
But I apologize

Now you think the grass might be greener
On the other side
Ain't no gold at the end of the rainbow
You're gonna find out in time

Now I can't help what you can't see
But the one thing that I'm sure about
Girl, I know you should be here with me

He'll never love you (No., no)
Not like I love you (Not like I love you)
He'll never treat you like the lady you are
Who you are (Oh)
He'll never know you
Not like I know you
He'll never be real, he'll never be true
And you'll never feel like you do in my arms
Not the way I love you

It's been too long, you need to come back home
Don't matter who's right or wrong, my dear
If I'm to blame, I promise I'll change my ways
And uh, if that's not enough, baby
I'll get down on my knees in the name of love

He'll never love you
Not like I love you (Yeah)
He'll never treat you like the lady you are (You are)
Who you are
He'll never know you (He'll never know you, baby)
Not like I know you
He'll never be real (Real), he'll never be true (True)
And you'll never feel like you do in my arms
Not the way I love you (Not the way that I love you, darlin')

He'll never love you (No)
Not like I love you (Not like I love you, baby, no)
He'll never treat you like the lady you are (You are)
Who you are
He'll never know you (He'll never know you, girl)
Not like (Not like) I know you *I know, I know)
He'll never be real, he'll never be true
And you'll never feel like you do in my arms

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

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.
