What's up?
I know we haven't spoken for a while
But I was thinkin' 'bout you
And it kinda made me smile
So many things to say
And I'll put 'em in a letter
Thought it might be easier
The words might come out better
How's your mother, how's your little brother?
Does he still look just like you?
So many things I wanna know the answers to
Wish I could press rewind
And rewrite every line
To the story of me and you

Don't you know I've tried and I've tried
To get you out my mind
But it don't get no better
As each day goes by
And I'm lost and confused
I've got nothin' to lose
Hope to hear from you soon
P.S. I'm still not over you
(Still not over you) you yeah

Excuse me, I really didn't mean to ramble on
But there's a lot of feelings that remain since you've been gone
I guess you thought that I would put it all behind me
But it seems there's always somethin' right there to remind me
Like a silly joke, or somethin' on the TV
Boy it ain't easy
When I hear our song
I get that same ol' feeling
Wish I could press rewind
Turn back the hands of time
And I shouldn't be telling you

Don't you know I've tried and I've tried
To get you out my mind
But it don't get no better
As each day goes by
And I'm lost and confused
I've got nothin' to lose
Hope to hear from you soon
P.S. I'm still not over you
(Still not over you)

Did you know I kept all of your pictures
Don't have the strength to part with them yet
Oh no
Tried to erase the way your kisses taste
But some things a girl can never forget

Don't you know I've tried and I've tried
To get you out my mind
But it don't get no better
As each day goes by
And I'm lost and confused
I've got nothin' to lose
Hope to hear from you soon
P.S. I'm still not over you
Still not over you
How I tried to forget you

Don't you know I've tried and I've tried
To get you out my mind
But it don't get no better (don't get no better)
As each day goes by (each day goes by)
And I'm lost and confused
I've got nothin' to lose
Still not over you

    Ya, completely self-explanatory...love it though. Reminds me so much of a past bf...lol, his lil bro did even look like him! It actually helped me cry those last tears and get over him. I had so many feelings inside, yet I didn't know what words to put to them. This song put them in perfect English. So ya, thats what the song meant to me...Ri rocks.

    This song is way too cute, I LOVE IT!!! It speaks for it's self...but it's also about that last attempt to get the person back by bringing up old memories. I love the way it's sung in the style of a letter. "Like a silly joke or something on the tv" I love that because it's so true, it's about the small things that bring us back to where we started...not the big picture...

    this makes me think of a special boy. we were in a relationship for 7 months but the whole time, he was lying to me. it was really complicated. :/

    but we still talk all the time [even though i have a new boyfriend] i still love him.. but he doesn't know that. we never used the three big words because he is leaving for college in the fall.

    but this totally explains my situation and every time i hear this song, i cry. its simple as that.

    It means so much to me... This is exactly how I feel about my ex and me, it's been a little while since we've talked but my feelings haven't changed for him one bit. I hear it and just remember all the quirky little things that he used to do that made me laugh, or our song on the radio... I wish he could be back with me...

    I think this song is about those great relationships that you have that end peacefully, but every now and then you think to yourself that you wish you could have done things differently because everyone that you date doesn't compare to that great love you once had. She is basically saying that even though she ended things everything she felt for him still remains and she wishes she could change things. When she ses i shouldn't be telling you i think she is saying that because the guys is now in a relationship but she still hasn't let go, so deep down she is hoping that he still feels the same. I especially love the bit 'i've tried to erase the way your kisses taste, but some things are girl can never forget'.

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
