How ya feelin'?
The day has had its way with both of us
And no, I've gone out of my way
But I'm not free
From this pain I'm reelin'
I was a fool to think some day you would come around
But no, no, no I'm not thinking that way
'Cause now I see

You are not what you seem
You are a mystery to me
Sometimes I just wanna scream

I think you should just go away 'cause
There's no necessity for you to stay and
Next time you come around my way
Forget it baby your not comin' in

How's your day been? Yeah
'Cause mine has taken strange and ugly turns
But no, no, no I feel better today
'Cause I'm off my knees

You are not what you seem
You are a mystery to me
Sometimes I just wanna scream, yeah

I think you should just go away 'cause
There's no necessity for you to stay and
Next time you come around my way
Forget it baby your not comin' in

A hot minute for a life of sorrow
No you can't come back tomorrow
Shut my windows, lock my doors
'Cause my heart won't be your rag doll anymore
Yeah

I think you should just go away 'cause
There's no necessity for you to stay and
Next time you come around my way
Forget it baby your not comin' in

A hot minute for a life of sorrow
No you can't come back tomorrow
Shut my windows, lock my doors
'Cause my heart won't be your rag doll anymore
Whoa, yeah, oh, whoa, yeah, yeah oh
'Cause my heart won't be your rag doll anymore

    If you were to ask me, I would say that this song is about a guy who's sick of being tossed around by his girlfriend, so he's just sayin', "I'm not your playtoy no-more!" It's a very powerful song, actually. If I ever get a guy who uses me, I'm going to throw rocks at him and sing this song. XD

    I love this song. I think it's one of the best by Maroon 5. I agree with dance_with_me, it's about a guy that's sick of being tossed around by his girlfriend. I can relate, unfortunately. These are my favorite lines:

    But no, no, no I feel better today, 'cause I'm off my knees.

    You are not what you seem You are a mystery to me Sometimes I just want to scream

    Dance With Me Lois, first of all, I'd like to say how much I like your name :D family guy rocks. but I like Maroon 5 a lot, and this is my favorite song by them. it's so smooth and jazzy, and the vocals aint that bad either. I love them! I dont think a lot has to be said about the meaning of the lyrics, they're pretty self-explanatory.

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"

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."

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.
