Where was god
When I needed a friend
Where was god
When I came to an end
Where was god
When I lost my mind
Where was god
When I couldn't find

Don't want to be up or down

Where was love
When I felt like hate
Where was hate
When I felt like love
Where were you
When you said you'd be there
Where was the fear
When I said I was scared

Tell me what you believe
I'll tell you
What you should see
'Cause I don't know
Who to trust
My heart is filled with disgust

I can't take this

Ladies and gentlemen
May I have your attention
Are you ready for the joke
Are you ready for the
Great deception

    Wow...nobody's commented this in a long time. It's an amazing song. It's kind of...nostalgic...only in a bad way, to read the comments from right after Dave died. I remember hearing different rumours and not knowing if it was true... what is now going on five years ago. Drowning Pool SUCKS and is NOTHING without him. R.I.P.

    My Interpretation

    It's saying, "If 'God' is so real, why isn't he there when people need a friend or a way to find happiness?" which that would mean that God is fake.

    He is questioning religion, as many people are. He offers to help people to see the other side of religion. "Are you ready for the joke/great deception?" Shows that he thinks religion is a big joke... a farce... a great deception. He offers a very good point.

    This is my favorite song of theirs.

    For those of you who are yet to be informed, Drowning Pools' vocalist Dave Williams passed away 8.14.02. It's a tradgedy, and I, along with so many others are saddened and shocked by this.

    this is a great song and at the very end of the song there is something in reverse if you play it backwards it says "ladies and gentlemen tell me what you believe" and dave's death is truly a tragedy

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"

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”

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.

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.
