Tell me does your pride bleed
When you see me succeed
Is that the gist of your story
Now you had best get used to it
Cause I ain't about to quit
And I'm just now getting started

Shame me, claim me or decieve me
You grow sick every time you hear me say believe me

Every time I get one foot up
You want to tear it down
You deny me... deceiver
Every time I get one foot up
You tear it down, knock it down, tear it down
Believer... deny me

I feel your hand on my throat
As well as the knife in my back
And the whole time you keep smiling
What is your reason for this
Why won't your hate just quit
Life would be better if you weren't struggling

(Believer)
What's wrong with your world
Doesn't taste the same as mine
Aren't the shades the same as mine
Pain, agony, regret, fear
Just dreams whisked away, taken away
So now does your pride still bleed
Every time that I succeed
Now that you know that I'll keep trying
Can your weak mind digest
All that I'm feeding it

    i think this song must be about people who get jealous of you because you can do more then them, or if you are doing better then them and they want to try to bring you down

    Definitely about how someone is jealous of the narrator or doesn't want him to succeed. His response is wondering why the person is jealous of him and what good it does them. It could also be about how jealousy helps no one.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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"

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.
