You came to me, I was alone,
Tried to drag me in to your danger zone.
You told me things got right inside
And showed me things I'd never tried.
You got a hold, you wouldn't let go,
You lied and lied and lied
It was a great big show.
Everything about us looks wrong but I swear it feels right.
(people talk) people talk, I hear them do it
(they think think they know)they think they know, when I never knew it
(you're a gigolo) you're gigolo I've heard it said.
(I've got a sweet name)I've got a sweet name for you instead.
They imagine, "what must give them a thrill?"
They'll never know for sure, but I will
Everything about us looks wrong but I swear it feels right.
Everything about us looks wrong but I swear it feels right.
Whispering is rude in public places
(its so obvious)it's so obvious, written on their faces
They think your taking me for a great big ride
But you know whats more? they're probably right I'm hoping on with you tonight...
You take me up and let me down
Don't like my friends to come around.
(if your not center) if your not center of the stage
You sulk and rant and go into a rage.
Ohohoh but I can leave at any time,
But I'd miss the oh so absurd and so sublime.
Everything about us looks wrong but I swear it feels right.
Everything about us looks wrong but I swear it feels right.
Everything about us looks wrong but I swear it feels right.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

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.
