I thought we'd be together forever. But it seems I was wrong and everything's falling apart. Think of what I've done for you. Think of all that we've been through. I hope every time he breaks your heart you think of me and how I was to you. Everything's falling apart. One day you'll see just how good I was. And I thought that we'd be together forever.

    Here is the rest of the song, for those who are curious... if anyone could help me out on that ? I left in there, please post here.

    There is a place Where the sidewalk ends and before the street begins and there, the grass grows soft and white And the sun burns so bright And there, the ? bird rests from it's flight To cool on peppermint winds Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black And the dark street winds and bends Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow We shall walk with walk that is measured, and slow And watch where the chalkline arrows go To the place where the sidewalk ends Yes we will walk with a walk That is measured and slow And we'll go where the chalkline arrows go The children they mark And the children they know The place where the sidewalk ends

    This site isn't a cut and paste op.. Please be thorough if you're going to post a song.

    The ? is moon-bird... and another correction... chalkline = chalk-white.

    ...Shoulda known it was a Shel Silverstein Poem...

    this song recites Shel Silverstein's Where The Sidewalk Ends verbatim.

    "I hope every time he breaks your heart you think of me and how I was to you."

    God, I love that line. Anyways, pretty clear what this song is about. I really like how they recite the poem in the end. To be honest I'm a little perplexed at how few comments this song has.

    i agree with desiderata03 that one line means so much to me because it tells my exact thorts...and with the line at the end "I thort we'd be together forvever" is what most relationships are like. Great Song!!

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”

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
