Well you sold my heart
And I'll get it back
But look me in the eye, baby
Tell me why you love me like that
Why you love me like that

Well I've walked this world
Thought time's no more
And after all this walking
They've still got me crawling on the floor
Crawling on the floor

And out of this world
Keeps on turning
Keeps me yearning

How can you turn and walk away?
Pretending everything's okay
How can you turn your back?
Tell me why you love me like that
Why you love me like that

Well I find you sad
But I shatter like broken glass
But I thought we would be different, baby
Yeah, I thought we would last
Yeah, I thought we would last

And out of this world
Keeps on standing
Every minute that you're in me

How can you turn and walk away
Pretending everything's okay
How can you turn your back
Tell me why you love me like that
Why you love me like that

I might not believe me baby
Don't lead me on
With loving like yours
Believe me I'm better off,
I'm better off alone

Well I was your gypsy
Throwing diamonds at your feet
Drifted around you like a satellite
I gave you everything you need
Everything you need

I know this world keeps on turning
Keeps me yearning and yearning

How can you turn and walk away
Pretending everything's okay
How can you turn your back
Tell me why you love me like that
Why you
How can you just break away
Why can't you find the words to say
Love is something you can't forget
Tell me why you love me like that
Why you love me like that

How can you throw us away
Look at what you lost today
Now everything's a shade of gray
Now you're pushing me away
Say all the things you need to say
Thought we were going all the way
Play all the games you want to play
Sooner we'll stay away

    I like this song. Makes me think of maybe a cheating loved one or a breakup. Though, spickly is right. It reminds me of someone else too.

    And I know this world Keeps on turning Keeps me yearning

    How can you turn and walk away? Pretending everything's okay How can you turn your back? Tell me why you love me like that Why you love me like that Woah-oh

    Well I thought you'd listen, But I'm shattered like broken glass Well I thought we would be different, baby Yeah, I thought that we would last Yeah, I thought that we would last

    Is it just me, or this just a different version of "Are you happy now?" Comapre them, the similarities are crazy, I like the one better though. But I wanna know if I am the only one that sees it

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.
Album art
Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
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.
