I got the first flight out when I finished up the tour, because I missed you
I even flew home a day too soon, all because I couldn't wait to kiss you
"Oh, how she will be loved"
Was the one thing stuck in my mind
And how tonight would be
Remembered for the rest of your life

I never thought that I'd do something like that
When I saw you two, it hit me like a heart attack
Oh no
How could you let somebody in through our door?
How could you bring him home?

I never thought I'd lose my temper like that
Now it's a fucked-up situation; he ain't coming back
Oh no
How could you please another man on our floor?
How could you bring him home?

I know you know I passed on every girl because I thought I really loved you
And you know that I'd never put anyone or anything above you
Because I loved you
And it was that love (It was that love)
That made me lose my head, and now it's too late
One day too soon
You'll regret it for the rest of your days

I never thought that I'd do something like that
When I saw you two, it hit me like a heart attack
Oh no
How could you let somebody in through our door?
How could you bring him home?

I never thought I'd lose my temper like that
Now it's a fucked-up situation; he ain't coming back
Oh no
How could you please another man on our floor?
How could you bring him home?

Hey
Oh
Hey
Oh

Please, God, forgive
Me for what I did
This day will stay for as long as I live
But if you walked in
And seen what I seen
I know any man would have done just the same

Please, God, forgive (No)
Me for what I did (No)
This day will stay for as long as I live
But if you walked in (No)
And seen what I seen (No)
I know any man would have done just the same
Because I

Never thought that I'd do something like that
When I saw you two, it hit me like a heart attack
Oh no
How could you let somebody in through our door?
How could you bring him home?

I never thought I'd lose my temper like that
Now it's a fucked-up situation; he ain't coming back
Oh no
How could you please another man on our floor?
How could you bring him home? (Bring him home)

Hey
Oh (Bring him home)
Hey
Oh

Hey
Oh
Hey
Oh

    I would rather kill my partner than the person she is cheating on me with, because, for all I know, the guy had no clue she was seeing anybody else. That isn't his fault.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
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.

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.

Magical
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.

Blue
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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
