I'll do
I walk down stairs to talk to you
I came in, I tried to sit
And I tried to talk this whole thing through
Your love is so complete
And your love justifies my feelings
We should live together
And we should never, never
Bye, bye maro momi, and
Bye, bye takaki, and
And bye, bye ai in america, and
Bye, bye heather
Bye, bye, bye, bye

We were walking along the street
And I fell down, and you said to me, you said,
'Calvin you're my guy with incredible blue eyes
But I've got to live my own life'

Falling through her bed you
Walk upstairs to say we're through
But no, uh-uh, uh-uh, no
I already knew

    I think it's pretty self explanatory. Nevertheless, beautiful.

    Maro means "I love you", but does anyone know what "mom" and "takaki" mean?

    This song slays me! One wanting and the other not. I think the stairs symbolyze how far apart the two are. He is willing to say good bye to everything and everyone, and she says she has to live her own life:(

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,

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.

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.

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.
