You're the one I want
You're a chance to take
You're a hard break
And swore you'd never leave again

You're the only one
That I ever trusted
Or who ever cared at all
Is this how its going to be
Is this how you wanted me

Broken down again
Its almost over now
Is this why you wanted me
To watch as you walk away
You kept on killing me
And you don't even want to touch me

I was wrong
I've wasted on
Can't figure out
What happened to us
I won't count on you anymore

I'll be all right
Don't worry about me
Aren't you happy now
You got what you want
I wanted you
But I'm over that now
I'm so sick of you and what we went through

Your lies to me
Won't win again
So don't kid yourself
Its better this way
Its all back to me

    My favorite Wrens song. The build-up of tension as his voice strains higher, and the eventual release in the three cleanest chords ever to end a song, is just a beautiful example of artistic control over the mood of the music.

    This is a beautiful song about having a significant other cheat on you repeatedly... as much as the singer wants to be with his girl, he ultimately realizes that she is a lying skank and that it's better for him to move on.

    its about a guy who cares for this girl. who knows how she feels about him, he doesnt know either, hence the chance. but apparently she doesnt care about him. and now he must go on with his life, yet he is better now for going through this, hes become almost a stronger person for understanding this and realizes hes better without her and her crap. this song is excellent. it really describes how things can turn sour. it hits home for me. and i like how the wrens address something so real and not just some cliche love song.

    This song is amazing. Im kind of going through the same thing and when I listened to this song after the my first "epiphany" about my situation, it was almost like an instance of clarity. And I think everyone can relate to this song and its theme, making it more human. The Wrens are incredible!!

    I really like all the extreme emotions in this song. Love, hate, and everything in between.

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”

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.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
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.
