She came around
I saw it in her face
Another time, another place
Is what she wanted
She let me go
So she could face this world alone
To find out where she belongs
She said I'm sorry

And I didn't know what should have happened
Yeah, I didn't know that I had a chance to say

Please don't go away
Cause I will never be the same
I will never be the same
Please don't go away
Cause I will never be the same
I will never be the same without you

She came around
About a year after she was gone
I was passed out in her yard
I can't live without her
Just when I thought I'd taken more than I could stand
Well she took me by the hand
And said I'm sorry
I didn't know what should have happened
I didn't know she was gonna say

[Lead break]
[Chorus x2]

    It's pretty sad how she left him, but I'm glad they got back together in the end.

    I love this song. I listen to it constantly. One of my favorite bands. <3 I love how she came back and they got to start over... I wish it was like that in all cases...

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

This is one of my favorite songs.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head &gt; Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
