Come with me
My love
To the sea
The sea of love

I wanna tell you
How much
I love you

Do you remember
When we met
That's the day
I knew you were my pet

I wanna tell you
How much
I love you

Come with me
My love
To the sea
The sea of love

I wanna tell you
How much
I love you

    I feel that this song is about being truly in love after you have been with someone for a while. The end of the third verse is actually "I knew you were my pet" not "I knew you were mine"., if you listen to the original by Phil Phillips and this one the lyrics are exactly the same, I only say this because not all of the covers on the cover record are exact covers.

    I wish this song made me happy: But it doesnt. Theres just too many negative connotations with love. For me anywway. When you are in love with someone who will never love you back... I guess every love song is sad.

    a lot of the songs in the movie Juno are simply mediocre..its just a bunch of kids with a tape recorder that put funny lil lyrics together and made a soundtrack...i thank goodness for this beautiful song for being included...i totally teared up when it came on..it was perfect... and its one of those songs that makes u want to have a special someone to dedicate it too..just angelic..beautiful..

    special.k makes me feel significantly more lonely than I did before, but I can see how that completely defines this song. Bottom line: It's beautiful. I've listened to the original by Phil Phillips and many other versions, but this is by far my favorite. There's something about a female voice with those simple lyrics that makes it that much more powerful. Maybe it's just me...

This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
